A Dancer and an Artist Is Now Fighting for His Life.


In January 2016, I met Raj for the first time. It was like one those arranged marriages where you meet the person and learn more about him. The thing is, we got along very well and I got to know Raj for the extremely humble and wonderful human being he is. On Valentine’s Day that year, Raj gifted me a painting of me. It was such a beautiful painting and no one has ever done that for me. Right at that time, I knew that Raj is my man. I wanted to spend my life with him. In May 2016, we got married and were happy to start a new journey with each other.

Raj is such a good dancer and extremely passionate about art. We both have jobs. He works as a Sr. Graphic Designer and would always wake up before me and wake me up later. Every morning, before he left he would iron my clothes for me without even mentioning it. He always gave me a hug and kiss whenever he would meet me, after or before work. When my legs hurt, he massages them with so much love. I know our marriage was arranged, but we love each other with all our hearts now.

Last year, on Valentine’s Day, my morning was perfect. I woke up to find my room filled with roses, balloons, cards, beautiful lights and some cute toys that I liked. Raj had taken me by surprise and swept me off my feet. We went on road trip that day and it was just perfect. But, who could tell back then that this Valentine’s Day, the love of my life would be in the hospital fighting for his life.  

Just on 27th January (2018), Raj and I were at home and suddenly, he started yelling in pain. It was so random. I don’t know what happened and Raj started collapsing. It was 20 minutes before we received any help and we took him to a local hospital. From nothing, he was so critical and his blood pressure and heartbeats were extremely low. We were told to go to a better hospital because of his serious condition. The doctors told us that they needed 72 hours to find out what had happened to him and if they could save him or not.

Those were the worst 3 days of my life. I was speechless. There were so many tubes in his mouth, which was held wide open. He would get fevers, was on the ventilator and his heart was also assisted artificially and there were big machines around him. It was an utterly atrocious sight and seeing Raj, who was completely normal and healthy, a teetotaler, going through this was nothing but the worst pain I’ve experienced.
We were told that he had a heart attack and his liver and other organs don’t function normally. Right now, he’s better than when we arrived but no one knows when he will open his eyes again. He is unconscious and moves his hands and legs slightly when he’s in pain. He needs to be kept in the ICU, for critical care for a long duration. Including life support, medicines and the room rent, etc., every day, the hospital bills amount to approximately Rs. 1 lakh. I just can’t understand how a perfectly healthy and such a lovable human being can fall so sick.
He always respected me and said, “You are very precious and I will do anything and everything for you”. We were leading a very happy life and Raj, who wouldn’t even hurt a fly, is one of the most lovable human beings in the world.  I really miss him and I don’t know why I’m crying right now but some memories and moments are just very overwhelming. Such a good human being.
I believe that my Raj will come back for me. My love for him is true and I know that he loves me more. My Raj is a lovely man and I know he will recover and we will continue to lead our happy life very soon. He is the love of my life, as I am his.

Raj is a celebrated artist and dancer in Tamil Nadu. His family, friends and fans are raising funds to save his life

Dear Supporters,

Thank you for the wonderful support that you have shown towards Raj. I have some news to share with you all today. He has been shifted back to his house. There's a dedicated nurse who takes care of him around the clock.

A physiotherapist visits him every day and spends 30 minutes to one hour with him. As of now, he is opening his eyes, reacting to pain and most importantly he is able to stand on his legs with support from a person next to him. However, he still hasn't gained complete conscience.

Though he's opening his eyes, he's not able to recognise any of us. There are very minute changes in him, but, the road to recovery still looks a long way!!! We are praying for him every day. We are thankful to all the donors for their support and for everyone who has Raj in their prayers.

We request you all to continue having him in your prayers for his speedy recovery. Thank you for the wonderful support. Will keep you posted.

Thank you!

Dear Supporters,

Thank you for your tremendous love and support. This couldn't have been possible without you.

It gives me immense pleasure in informing you all that Raj was discharged one and a half months ago. He is able to open his eyes, though there isn't any much improvement since the last time. He undergoes a phsiotherapy session every day for about 15-20 minutes and we also have a round-the-clock nurse to attend to him.

The neurosurgeon visits him once in every 10 days. We are also considering going for an ayurvedic treatment to help him. The doctor says that we should wait and give him time to get better.

We are all hopeful about his recovery. Please keep praying for him.

Thank you!

Dear Supporters,

Here is an update on Raj's health

He is discharged from MIOT hospital. The doctors said that he can be treated at home, under his family's care. But since his current home won't be big enough to accommodate wheel chair and a few basic equipment like the oxygen setup, we have admitted him at VHS hospital, Taramani. He's still the same - opening his eyes at times (more promptly now), reacts to pain, coughs vigorously and more importantly, he's breathing on his own through tracheostomy. Though he's better than what he was 20 days ago, he still has miles to go before he gets well. He's come this far because of all the positive vibes he's been getting from every nook and corner.

Thank you for your love and support.
Regards.
