Rajini, 25, was ostracized from her husbandÕs family after both her children were born with disabilities. Rajni comes from a small village many miles from Bhopal, however, 8-years-ago she married Navneet and as is Indian custom, moved into his parents' house in the water-contaminated colony of Shivshakti Nagar near Union Carbide's solar evaporation ponds. These ponds were the company's dumping ground for all their toxic waste. Rajni's in-laws blame her for their disabled grandchildren and say she has brought bad luck into their family.
