Dharshan is a 1-year-old baby who had just started speaking. One week back, he suffered from intestinal damage. An urgent surgery was performed on the baby but he still needs intensive support. His father Ganesh is a daily-wage worker who is finding it very hard to meet the family's expenses.
“Even if his brain is damaged – we will be happy to care for him as long as he lives”
Dharshan is his parent's only child. Ganesh works as a daily-wage worker in Bangalore. Ganesh and his wife Sumitra decided that they would have one child that they would look after well. Unlike them, he would study and go to college.
It started when Dharshan started crying and complained to Sumitra that he felt pain. He had diarrhea and vomiting. He was passing blood – his insides were bleeding. They took him to two hospitals before taking him to Manipal Hospitals.
“The doctors say that there is only a 5% chance that he will have the intelligence of a normal child. It doesn't matter - both me and my wife just want him to live. We will take care of him all our lives because we are his parents,” Ganesh says.
