The agony of Valliamma by Aziz Hassim

A young girl who joined other women on a march to inform others of the passive resistance movement, sentenced to prison, her condition soon began to deteriorate, but she refused the offer of the authorities to return home. The participation of women passive resisters was a key element of the Satyagraha Campaign of 1913 – 1914. Angered by the Supreme Court judgement in March 1913, in which Judge Searle refused to recognise Hindu and Muslim marriages, Indian women joined the Campaign for the first time.
