"For 6 long years I couldn't manage to arrange the money required for my daughter's treatment and now I have the last chance to save her. It's all because of me that her condition got this critical. I should have done something sooner, I tried, I really did but..."- Sailesh, father
Saniya was 4 years old when Sailesh got to know that she has a heart disease. He did not have any savings, no one was giving him loans and he owned no gold or land. He worked hard every day to save every rupee that he could to save his daughter. Finally when he did, Saniya went for her first operation. It was in November last year but isn't the last one she needs.
"She needs another operation and... It took 6 years for me to arrange 3 lakh rupees and I don't know how many years it will take now. I don't have that much time now, only a few months. It kills me that I am unable to save her and what kind of father am I."- Sailesh
Saniya wants to travel the world but she can't even stand on her feet without support
"She likes to go out, but it is not safe for her. It was only when we went for her treatment in Kolkata that she went out for the first time. I showed her Howrah Bridge and Victoria Memorial, she was so happy. I want her to be like that always. Now she says she wants to travel the world, but she can't even stand without support."- Sailesh
The big scar on her chest is a reminder of her painSaniya has lost a lot of weight, she doesn't eat anything now. She has a big scar on her chest from the previous surgery which is a reminder of all the pain she's been through till now.
"Whenever I bring her food she says ' I don't want to eat Mumma, I feel like vomiting' I tried a lot but my child is not eating. She has become so weak that she is unable to even talk to me. I feel like crying looking at her like this. What has my little girl done, it should have happened to me"- Neha, mother
