But beyond his troubled family life and his contentious profession, there existed a darker, well-guarded secret in the depths of Suleiman's being. His commanding presence, combined with his raw strength, attracted the attention of Hindu women from the village, most of them already married. They would discreetly visit his butcher shop under the pretense of buying chicken and eggs, all the while harboring amorous intentions. Over the years, these illicit encounters resulted in the birth of thirteen illegitimate children with nine different women. Curiously, Suleiman never sought the company of younger women, nor those with petite frames like Mahrukh's. Instead, he gravitated towards women in their early to mid-thirties, blessed with a chubby physique. His aversion to pursuing relationships with women like Mahrukh, petite and fragile, was driven by the memories of his wife's suffering and the haunting specter of her ultimate demise.
