I am the only child of my parents, with whom I have a small home in Mumbai. Recently a major portion of the ceiling plaster in the bedroom has caved in, owing to water leakage after the heavy rains last year. The seepage of water has caused many of the critical grid rods to rust, raising doubt over their capability to support the structure.
I was totally unprepared for such an emergency and hence the need for this fundraiser. As a temporary measure we have had to erect a supporting pillar as shown in the photo.
If the needed restoration work is not carried out as soon as possible then it is very likely that more portions of the ceiling may suddenly cave-in and probably harm anyone sleeping in the room. This time we were lucky none of us 3 were present in the room when the cave-in happened, if this remains without being restored then next time we may not be as lucky.
Thank you very much for your co-operation. May God give you peace and happiness forever!
