Very sad about the family.The grandfather was old and It is nature and we have to accept it. The girl was a Emotional Fool but her Love towards the elder must be respected but not her sacrifice.

Being a Computer Engineering student how can she be so foolish. The grandfather’s was the Natural death and Its our duty to carry on the Legacy to our Younger ones . She shouldn’t have done so.
