Published On: August 5, 2016 03:00 AM NPT By: Nabin Baral

Many people in Nepal are still superstitious and have strong faith in supernatural powers. These centuries old conservative beliefs are still deep-rooted in the social structures of our society. They can be traced to various cultural activities among different communities and sadly, some even lead to both physical and mental abuse. Most of the time, victims of such violence are women especially the ones who are weak, poor and single.
