Ambika could take on world, but not dowryan MCom topper at Panjab University, had never really given much thought to the demon of dowry. It belonged to another world, far removed from hers. On Sunday, it devoured her. She was only 29.
Ambika, who had just left her deputy managers job with HDFC for a job with the Canadian Consulate, was found hanging from the ceiling fan of her bedroom. Her husband, Gagan Gupta who runs a family graphics business in Chandigarh, and in-laws have now been arrested for allegedly driving her to suicide with their incessant demands for dowry.
Today Vijay Shingari, Ambikas father, a stenographer with the Punjab Irrigation Department, regrets giving in to the greed of his daughters in-laws. First, we spent Rs 15 lakh on the marriage, then we gave in to their demand for a car. Only a month ago, they had asked for Rs 10 lakh after she returned from a sponsored trip to Australia with her husband and son. All this in the hope that his daughter would live happily ever after.
Now he regrets having imposed his idea of marital bliss on her. I still remember the day she came back home after landing her first job as a lecturer of Economics at Khalsa College in Chandigarh. She said: Papa, I am your son.
Somewhere along the line he forgot that, even when as landed one prize job after the other. HDFC offered her a job after hearing about her excellent work at ICICI and Bank of Punjab, he wipes a stray tear, pointing to Ambika, framed on the wall.
The suicide came as a shock to the family. She couldnt have done that, she was always inspiring others to face challenges head on. I admit there was too much pressure on her, but..., her brother Dinesh Shingari, an engineer, struggles to maintain his composure.
The family is convinced it was murder. The distance between the bed and the ceiling fan was less than Ambikas height. How could she hang herself?
Ambikas was an arranged marriage. We found Gagan in the matrimonial columns of a newspaper, says Vijay. At the outset, it seemed like a match made in heaven. They used to talk for hours every day, but things soured soon after marriage in 2000, remembers her mother Prem.
The dowry demands continued even after she gave birth to a son, Agam, two-and-a-half years ago. The toddler has now told police that Gagan beat up his mother on the day of her death.
The family alleges her in-laws, Ved Prakash Gupta and Nirmal Gupta, even began to meddle in her career.
Neighbours like Jagdish Lal Bajaj, who have known Ambika since childhood, look dazed as they leaf through her albums. She was such a go-getter, why did she suffer all this? Why couldnt she just get way? Thats one question which everyone is asking.

All set for poll in PU collegesThe election process which started in the city colleges on 17 of this month will come to an end tomorrow with voting taking place in the morning. The results will be declared on the same day. Today was the last day of the campaigning.
The police has made elaborate security arrangements to ward off any untoward incident.
However, voting in two city colleges, namely the Government College for Men, Sector 11 and the Guru Gobind Singh College for Women, Sector 26, will not be held as the council had been elected unanimously Also, in the Government College for Girls, Sector 42, voting will take place for the post of joint secretary only, as the other three candidates have been elected unanimously.
The classes in most of the City colleges remained affected with students busy canvassing for their candidates. Students were seen making last ditch efforts to see their candidates in the office.
The colleges wore a look of festivity. The supporters had put up coloured banners and posters in support for their candidates. At some colleges, the students even did not mind pasting posters on the walls. A girl student of MCM DAV College, Sector 36 said, "Our Principal has allowed us to put these posters on the walls on the condition that after the elections we would have to remove them".
Ms Prachi Yadav, who is contesting for the post of president of the college said, ‘‘It is for the first time I am contesting any election but I am not nervous". She admitted that she was going to face tough competition. Supporters of Aarushi Barowalia, who is contesting for the top post, were sure of defeating the rival candidate.
Nishu Dubey, sitting general secretary of the DAV Students Council, Sector 10, who is seeking re-election looked confident of his victory. On the other hand, his opponent, too was equally confident of wining the seat.
There are some colleges in the city where elections will not be held tomorrow. One of them is the Government College for Education, Sector 20. Ms S. Tangari, Principal the college, when contacted, said that the Directorate of Public Instructions (Colleges) was aware of it. She informed that in the beginning of the session, the cultural and academic committees are formed. From these two committees college representatives are nominated.
Similarly, elections in Panjab Engineering College, Sector 12, are held in a different manner. In Government Home Science College, Sector 10, also elections will not take place tomorrow.
When The Tribune team contacted students of Home Science College, they were ignorant about the reason why elections are not held in the college. As one of them said, "May be because ours is professional college". But all them wanted an elected body in their college to deal with the problems faced by them. As a postgraduate student of the college said, "The Principal was not available for comments".
Nisha Thakur of the Government College for Girls, Sector 11, who is contesting for the post of vice-president said, "Last year I was elected general secretary unopposed but this time I am facing a contest". According to her, girls in her college are very sensible and would use their conscience while voting".
Ms Ripujeet K. Sidhu of the same college is the candidate for the post of general secretary on the SOPU ticket. She is also banking on the performances of her party in Panjab University.
