A 38-year-old woman, who works in a garment factory, was deserted by her husband and has two children to support. Despite being the sole breadwinner, she found it difficult to manage the household with her meager income. Her daughter, Swathi (name changed), studying in II PUC in a government college, had contacted a 17-year-old boy from Andhra Pradesh whom she met on Instagram. After a month of chatting, Swathi eloped with the boy to his native place.

The mother, a single parent with no one to support her, registered a complaint with PARIHAR at the Malleshwaram police station. PARIHAR immediately called 1098 and gave the information to child line. They also helped the mother file an FIR at the local police station. With everyone’s coordination and efforts, the girl was traced from the boy’s relative’s house in a remote village in Andhra Pradesh, where they were planning to get married with the help of the boy’s parents and relatives. However, because of the swift action of PARIHAR, the police, and Childline, she was rescued and reunited with her mother.

Thanks to PARIHAR’s timely support, the mother and daughter were reunited. After Swathi joined her mother, she was brought to PARIHAR for counseling. During the counseling session, Swathi realized her mistake, promised not to repeat it, and assured that she would concentrate on her studies.


Keerthi (name changed), a 24-year-old IT professional, approached PARIHAR’s Basavangudicentre, stating that she has been married for three years with no issues. However, she recently discovered that her husband, Manoj (name changed), had pledged their property for a high-interest loan and had taken out many other loans to fund his online gambling addiction. He had lost over 32 lakhs and was on the verge of losing his IT job due to his addiction. Keerthi approached PARIHAR and the couple received counselling. During the counseling session, Manoj confessed his mistakes, promised to give up his addiction and repay all debts. Initially, Keerthi was firm on separation, but after several counseling sessions with the couple and their family members, they decided to reconcile under certain conditions. The couple is now living together, and Manoj has taken up a new job and is being counseled at PARIHAR to overcome his addiction.


Sameer and Sanjanna (names changed) got married 6 years ago despite belonging to different religions and worked together in an MNC company. However, for the past two years, they have had frequent fights and developed misunderstandings, leading to an unhappy marriage. Sameer eventually went to PARIHAR Malleshwaram police station to file a complaint against his wife, and they were referred to counseling. During the counseling sessions, the couple and their family members blamed each other for their issues and were stressed and depressed. They initially decided to part ways but were referred to a psychologist for family therapy and treatment due to Sanjana’s suicidal tendencies. After repeated counseling and therapy, the couple has now developed compatibility and is leading a peaceful life.
