An interview of Dil Sobha on Kantipur Television last month by journalist Bijay Kumar had triggered a wave of support to the Aamaghar that Dil Sobha had started after she was also left destitute by her husband a day before she was about to marry off there daughter.
Following the deception from her husband and being left with nothing else than her daughter, she raised her self from the pessimism and through utter struggle with every odds in her life managed to open the doors of her home to many destitute old age women, who were forced to share a fate similar to her by their family or by god.
