The matter was a few years ago, after a government hospital examination, doctors told Tara that they had Breast Cancer, for which they would have to make mesectomy immediately. Her husband, who considered doctors to be the second form of God, did not understand the need for second opinion from any other hospital or specialist doctor and gave the doctor permission for more information about him. After the surgery, when the doctors sent breast labels to investigate breast, it was discovered that they did not have breast cancer. The inexplicable Tara not only suffered the pain of surgery, but also suffered mental pain due to his family. At that time, if Tara or her husband had known her rights or she was a little cautious, then she would not have to face it all. This is not the story of any star.
