Odisha Kalahandi where Mahji lived along with his family
On August 23, 2016 mahji took his ailing wife to government hospital
And that very night she died. Dana did not have any money or wealth and
Could not hire any transport or ambulance. What he had is his dead Wife on his shoulders
And 12 years old weeping daughter who appeared helpless.
Poor man seemed in pain and distress. Pain poured out of his eyes,
Poor mahji could not reveal his pain and agony with anyone except his dead wife.
And sole companion i.e. his daughter quietly, who despite having lost her mother and tears in her eyes
Appeared consoling her father by walking alongside.
A compelled husband and father “What else could he do”?
Thank all Indians who are our Brothers and Sisters who have compassion for every alive citizen of India and not Dead……………
