"I watched a CCTV video of my daughter fall from the 3rd floor. I felt helpless and angry at myself for not being there for her. I don't understand why something keeps happening to my children, whether my karma is affecting them. This is the worst punishment a father can get, and the worst pain a child can go through."
"Purushottama was born with a problem in his backbone. As he was growing it became more evident and troubled him. It looked like a snake instead of being straight. We went through two surgeries. He needs one more, and until then, he has to go for injection every week, medicines and physiotherapy."
"It was gutting to watch that video. My neighbors and my son were standing right there! She fell right next to their feet! She did not know how to go downstairs. My wife was in the kitchen and did not know what was happening. I was not home. My son feels guilty about this and keeps crying until today."
"She opens her eyes when we talk but she does not move. Only yesterday she moved her palm and held my hand. Doctor says her joints are shaken up, but she does not need any treatment for that. She hit her head on the right side. So for the rest of her life, we cannot give her any shocking news, anything that is depressing, painful, emotionally traumatic or stressful. The doctor said she may have a chronic headache, and if she ever experiences tension the pain will get worse."
"Purushottama is depressed. He wants to see her. I am not saying anything to him. I do not want to blame him. It is not his fault. He is already sick, and I cannot let him retreat into a hole. He saw her fall, and not come home. I told him that I took her to the doctor, she has been treated and she has gone to Ajji mane for some rest. He is 9 years old. He understands everything. He won't believe this story for long. I don't know how I can hold him off forever."
"She opens her mouth but no sound comes. Even when they poke her with needles. I know it is hurting her. She opens her mouth but her voice is gone. The doctor says trauma does that sometimes. It takes a while for her to start speaking, especially because she has not had water. But, if you ever saw your child like that, how would you feel?"Bindhu now requires urgent life-saving neurosurgical intervention and intensive care for 10 days. It is estimated to cost Rs. 8 Lakhs. Hiranya is pleading for your support to save his 2-year-old. She is too young to be in this much pain.
