Things came crashing down when her husband developed a relationship with another lady. He began to verbally and physically harass her. She tolerated all the harassment silently for the sake of her two daughters. This went on for a while till one day, he threw her out of the house and told her not to return.
With nowhere to go, she turned to her sister. She lived with her sister for some time. However, she did not want to be a burden on them. She found a job as a cleaner in a private hospital. The hospital had options for employees to live in shared arrangements. Rane Aji took this job so she could get a place to live.
