10) While coming back from office you witness a strange incident. A wife is beating her drunk husband on the street. If she is not stopped, it appears that she might kill him as well. Her neighbours are not stopping her. Instead they are encouraging her to beat him hard as a revenge for all the torture he had given to her in the past. They are telling that he used to beat his wife and children every day for not giving him their daily wages to spend it on alcohol consumption. In recent days he had become nuisance in the colony.
