Loss for life:
He will never be able to walk in his life. This infant has lost both his legs in an accident. Throughout his life he will envy all, who will walk, run and dance around him. He will ask why the fate was so cruel towards him. Why did he lose the most precious gift of mobility, when he was ignorant about what mobility is?
Ignorant of the great loss, this innocent child looks on at his unknown future. What he has lost is unknown to him. He has also lost the loving lap of the mother that would have provided him the much need solace.
The hapless child we are speaking about is the only son of his parents. His father Sunil from Pahadagodi village under Karanjia police station of Mayurbhanj district is a driver by profession. This boy is the third child of Sunil. Sunil has two other daughters. He and his wife Mamata were too happy when this male child was born. Despite their low income, this couple was living happily with their three children. They never knew their happiness will be short lived.
Few days back while on her way to her parental home, Mamata met with a lethal accident in Baripada. An iron ore loaded truck hit her. She died at the spot. The infant she was holding in her lap was also seriously injured. Giving up her life, she could save the child from death. But one leg of the child got detached from his body during the accident. His other leg was completely crushed.
Initially the seriously injured child was admitted in Karanjia hospital. As his condition was too serious, he was transferred to Cuttack for treatment. In Cuttack, the other leg of the injured child had to be amputated to save his life. Now this injured child is unknowingly fighting for life. His father is not having proper income to bear the cost of treatment of the injured child. He is managing the treatment expenses through loans and help from his neighbours. Social activist Payal Priyadarshini has provided supporting hand. She is looking after the injured baby. Treatment of the injured child is continuing under the guidance of Dr B.B.Nayak.
