Another story from Himachel Pradesh and the Shimla village area, as gathered by Alice Dracott (Simla Village Tales).
This story tells the tale of a rich Rajah and his six rich wives and his one poor one. Unable to have kids, he asks a Fakhir to help him. Only his poor wife listens to the instructions and so only she has children, six boys and one girl. The jealous wives bribe the midwife to get rid of the kids any way she can, and so she does three times. Will there ever be justice?
