Education is always a great asset in the life of a woman. How did Bholi, an educated girl, face the challenge posed by Bishambar’s greed ?


Education is one of the most critical areas of empowerment for women. Offering girls basic education is one sure way of giving them much greater power of enabling them to make genuine choices over the kinds of lives they wish to lead. This is exactly what happened with Bholi. At first, Bholi had agreed to marry an old man because of her father’s honour, thereby placing her family’s interest over her own. However, later she refused to marry him because she saw how mean, greedy and contemptible he was.

This is why she rejected the marriage and silenced everybody who called her shameless.
