“We took him to the doctors but they said everything was all right. When he finally just collapsed – his creatinine count was 35(people with normal kidneys have 0.5-1.5). Over the months – his kidneys were getting damaged and we didn't catch it in time,”explains Nadhu – Anand's older brother.

“When father left us, she was shattered and that left her somewhat fragile. She is always worrying because she feels vulnerable and alone. But where we are concerned – she is always there for us. She is donating her kidneys to Anand – unafraid of what it'll mean for her,” Nadhu explains.
