She's home. We've talked. And she's asked me to respect her privacy by not sharing the absolute whys and hows on this blog.
So...no she was not attacked. Yes, she was unable to fit in. She's a woman with a strong sense of justice and could not live with the things that she saw every day. She decided to bow out. Felt that if she stayed, she was condoning a way of life that she found unacceptable.
She met some spectacular people. All of them untouchables. She said that the people who helped her the most, were the most kind, were considered to be bottom of the barrel in the caste system.
She's home again. And with no desire to ever return to India, even in a tour group.
Thank you so much for all of your supportive, kind wishes.
And I apologize for not being able to give specifics. I'm sure that you can surmise what was happening. Suffice it to say that she refused to be silent about what she saw as the unacceptable treatment of women. And she paid the price by being shunned.
And, yes....a big lesson learned at a great cost.
