LOST DAUGHTERS: Varsha Hitkari is helped to a drink of water by her parents. Her husband hung his wife from the showerhead after she gave birth to a second girl instead of the son he wanted. Her brother found her in time to save her life but she was in a coma for six weeks and has not been the same since. Her second daughter, 18-month-old Pari, wears a shirt that says "boy" and drinks from her bottle at their home in Kanpur, India. Varsha's father, Ramesh Chandra, cannot afford the 200,000 rupees (about $4,500 dollars) needed for the kind of physical therapy she will need to recover. Local police have not caught the culprits.
