ਭਾਰ - Strangest of the stories
Punjab is hell on earth.
And the tragedy is that most people and even most sikhs know nothing about these events.
But every event has its own life, however shadowy it may be. Such events have the uncanniest existence.
These invisible ghosts are behind the collective suicides being committed in Punjab. It is not only debt which is driving them towards suicide. It is collective weight (that also happens to be the name of this story) which is acting as the impulsive force behind the suicides. I know that it is a bold conclusion and many people will disagree with me on this point. But I have not reached at this conclusion through speculation alone. What drove me towards it was nothing short than the suicide of a close friend.
A word of caution:
It will rob you of a few nights sleep. Some friends of mine told me that they felt as if thier chests are going to burst after reading this story.
