She cries out in pain, she is given high dose of medicines and injections to relieve her from the pain but nothing is helping her.
Sasi Kumar had a heart attack soon after her daughter had fits
"Imagine a 10-year-old saying she has to die! How can any mother bear this? I don't know where she learnt these words! There are many kids like her in this ward. I have seen them dying, but I don't tell her when she asks about them. She somehow understands that they have left the world. She can't bear the pain, she is pleading to help her. What can I do? If she goes, I'll go with her! I can't bear this!"- Jayanthi.
A year ago, Harini was admitted to hospital for more than a month. When she was discharged and came home, Jayanthi gave her a bath, suddenly she got fits.
