4 surgeons, 8 hours of surgery and parents on their way to the hospital
“By the time his parents came from their village, he was still under surgery. They were desperate to see Harish. It was only when he was being shifted to an isolated room, while they were taking him on the stretcher, did his parents see him for the first time. His mother collapsed on the floor when she saw him.” -cousin, who was at the hospital
“I never thought I would see him like this. I just spoke to him last night and he told me he would call back in the morning, how can he…”- mother, she couldn’t continue talking

He was thankful to everyone who was there, supporting them in their hard times but he didn’t want to burden anyone anymore. At a very young age, he took on all the responsibilities.
