Suffering Of 1st Women

There was a woman who had a man and 5 children they all did the garden work together when the man got money in plants which they had harvested, he got another wife and He lived the first one with her children without giving her the basic needs. he didn't pay fees for his children. When the first wife went to demand for fees of his children, the second wife abused her. Since this first woman was patient, she stood up and came back home crying. early in the morning she cooked tea and gave her 5 children. She got the rope and told the children to be there that she is coming right now. She went down in the garden and killed her self with that rope and she died.
