Painkillers led to kidney failureIn 1998, Venkateshwarlu met with a truck accident where he was severely injured. By god's grace he recovered soon and continued to work as a farmer. As farming involves a lot of physical activities,he frequently began to have back aches. To be able to work, he had to swallow painkiller which affected his kidney severely.
Venkateshwarlu was the Ginnie of the houseBefore everything happened, he would try to fulfill his family's wishes working hard and loved to see smile on their faces.

"I took a bus pass and travel alone now for my dialysis, my daughter cried saying she would accompany me but I don't want her to watch me like this so I sent her away to our village"- vekateshwarlu
