I had to suffer a lot of mental trauma after Ayan was born. He had asphyxia when he was born. The doctor told me that Ayan would have certain developmental issues while growing up. I blame the doctor for this situation. I was staying with my husband and his parents. They didn’t accept Ayan and he was deprived of his grandparents’ love and care. For Ayan’s wellbeing, I had to leave that house and we shifted to my parents’. My husband works for a company where they organise regular parties. Every time, I take Ayan with me, the other parents take their children away from him. I tolerated this for a while, then I stopped going for these parties. I have now turned into some unsocial being just to save my child from social neglect and isolation
