What is a 'sutra'?

 Sutra is a Sanskrit word, which literally means string or thread. But in the literary context, sutra is a concise i.e. using few words and meaningful expression of a truth. All vedic knowledge is in the form of Sutras.
 
To put it simply, a sutra is a sentence or a statement, which has a complete meaning by itself. Every word in a sutra is non deletable, every word is a chapter by itself.
 
For example, a sutra to create awareness about child sexual abuse can be as follows: "Child sexual abuse, evident or suspect, is a common, preventable, punishable, acute medicolegal emergency."

This is a nine-fold increase from last year when 265 deaths were reported.
