The Facts of the Matter
Our elders have often opined that a person only dies, when they are destined to. When their breaths, that are supposedly numbered, come to an end. There has been a colloquial Hindi phrase as well which reads – “Jaako rakhe saiyaan, maar sake na koy”, which can be roughly translated to, the one who’s protected by almighty, can be harmed by none.
Recently, a woman in Kerala embodied the above-mentioned notion after her plan of killing herself was foiled by none other than a wasp. The incident was reported from Kayamkulam, a town in Alappuzha, Kerala and occurred earlier on Monday.
