Because of being a daughter, Sindhutai was disliked by everyone in the house (because she was a daughter; not a son), so she was called as ‘chindhi’ (torn piece of cloth) in the house.. But his father wanted to teach Sindhu, so he used to send Indus to school against Indus’s mother..
Due to opposition of mother and economic conditions of the house, the education of Sindhu continued to be disrupted.. When she passed the fourth grade examination, she had to leave school because of economic conditions, home responsibilities and child marriage..
