A former nurse who lost her husband in childbirth has died.
The 43-year-old former nursing student, from the village of Travancore in the state of Tamil Nadu, had been living in the US with her husband, Anil, who had a heart attack in December last year.
Ms Anil was the only one in the family.
She had a stroke and had to be taken to a hospital, but her husband survived and is now back home in Chennai.
A man walks past the house of Anil’s wife, Anjali, in the village, Travampore district, Tamil Nadu.
The man says that when his wife became pregnant, she gave birth to a girl.
