Manju has cancer. She and her husband have moved from their faraway village to Delhi for treatment. Manju talks about her concerns: small children, their education; their future. The husband adds that the dad and mom and the younger brother are all ill. He will have to get through Manju’s treatment, and go back to the village and sort it all out. He adds with a faint smile, “All I can say is, let us keep smiling. Try to be happy. The happier you are, the more effective the treatment”.
