Today, I pray for two women

A fearless writer, a less popular singer, a daughter of a legendary singer whom the whole nation worships.
A woman who looked up in admiration and love to her mother, and down in sympathy to her troubled early childhood.
A woman who got married, divorced, then found a partner for a noble social cause she wished to pursue; but lost him to God.
A life of struggle, then love, then depression.
A life she no longer wanted to live.
A life she ended with a gunshot.

Leaving behind her mother, the legendary singer, in inconsolable pain. For that woman, whose departed soul will continue to find peace in her mother’s vicinity, and for the mother, who must struggle to live on with the pain of losing her daughter and with the forever lingering doubt of having not done enough…for both of them, I pray.
