The problem of Indian women, getting deserted by their NRI husbands either in foreign lands or back in India is very common. It is especially related to such Indian women who get trapped in deceptive matrimony with overseas Indians. Sometimes the foreign dreams come at a cost of innocent lives and the future of the spouses who travel to a foreign land along with such NRIs. In some cases, as the above one, they do not even have to travel abroad to get harassed as their dreams get shattered while they are still in India.
