Story


It was another casual morning in Rakhi's house. Four years ago little girl told her mother that she had hunger pangs, but her mother just asked her to chop the vegetables and wait as she had to run to the fields for work. It was hard for a little girl to control her hunger till her mother returned. Therefore she attempted to light the stove and started cooking. She enjoyed cooking her favourite meal, and that day was no different except that she couldn't know of the impending danger.

Accidentally, her dupatta fell in the fire. She was screaming for help, all wrapped in fire. It all happened within seconds. Her aunt from the neighbourhood ran and covered her with a blanket to stop the fire. People in the street were screaming to save the little girl from dying.


"Four years ago, our lives moved upside down after our daughter's accident. I still remember the day when people were coming toward me, running and shouting, 'Your child is burning; she is dying.' As I saw her in horrible condition, I fell unconscious. I thought I had almost lost my daughter." Manju, mother.

Four years have passed, but the memories of that dreadful day still shake the young girl's soul. 16-year-old Rakhi has been afraid of fire and can't stand it since then. Her neck and chest are all burnt. The skin is badly fused, making it impossible for her to move her neck sidewards or upwards.


Her neck pains with stiffness. The burns on her skin cause irritation and continuous itching. Her oesophagus is shrinking, making it difficult for her to eat. She can't even breathe properly. Therefore she needs urgent medical intervention to lead a pain-free life.

"I am a poor shop owner. My earnings are shrinking, and my burden increases with every passing day. How will I reduce my child's pain?"  Pramod Kumar, father.

Rakhi's father is a small shop owner, and her mother works in the fields as a labourer. After putting in so much effort, they cannot earn enough money to cover all of the family's needs. Poor parents have borrowed a lot of money for their daughter's treatment, which they cannot repay. They are urging help to give their daughter a better life.

"I am dying with pain. I can't bear so much mental humiliation and physical stress. Please help me." Rakhi.
