It can also be dangerous to challenge such weddings, which are deeply rooted in many villages’ traditions.

Earlier this week, a welfare officer underwent 18 hours of surgery to reattach her arms, which were hacked off by an angry father with whom she had argued. She had urged him not to marry off his young daughter to a teenage boy.

Just think about that. How would you like that to be your job?

    First of all, I didn’t know that arms could be reattached and still work.  Second, I think I would do that job if it’s what I was called to do.  At least that woman is doing something of significance.

    I like your heading (I don’t know if it has been there for weeks or what, I rarely look at the headings :P), but if there is a plan B, is it really giving up?
