A mother attends to Fatla, her 27-year-old daughter who attempted suicide earlier that day. In hope for forgiveness, the highest number of suicide occurs on Fridays, the holiest day of the week for Muslims. Most take organo-phosphorus pesticides used in agriculture. Half a tablespoon can kill a person within 30 minutes. On average, there are 5-7 suicide attempts per day, mostly women residing in villages.

Srinagar, Kashmir. June 2003.
