controversies surrounding  convents and death of Nuns, Sathyadeepam weekly, the official
organ of the Syro-Malabar Church, has admitted that almost 20 percent
of the nuns are feeling mentally insecure or unaccepted in convents.
The weekly says that five per cent of the nuns are feeling permanently
unaccepted.

The cold blooded murder of Abhaya inside a convent was also reported as a suicide like this by the Police, Church and Media in the begining.
