Hello friends, amidst the devastation and despair of war, I want to share a unique piece of news which would surely lift your collective mood. The particular information came to me from my daughter who is currently doing her internship. One of her intern friend was deputed in a semi-urban Government Health Dispensary as a part of community health assignment. Due to the prevailing situation, she had to handle a large rush of patients. She was doing her job quite commendably in spite of the constraints of limited resources.
One day, a haggard looking man entered her chamber and earnestly requested her to have a look at his wife, who was in labour. As there was no other responsible female at home around to handle the matter (as rural people still prefer home delivery assisted by midwives in presence of elderly women of the house), he had thought it better to come over to the health centre.
She hurriedly rushed out along with him and found a woman, half sitting, half lying in an auto rickshaw, her face wracking in apparent distress. A quick check up was enough for her to pronounce that baby was about to come. There was no stretcher or ward boy around to carry the expecting mother.
She then took one of the woman’s arm around her shoulder and asked her husband to hold the another. She was immediately needed to be shifted to a bed. They barely have progressed half the distance, when suddenly the husband bent down to catch something. The very next moment, a babies cry was heard.
Actually the baby had decided that it was time to come out. You may call it an instinct of a father, the first tentative cry had reached his ears and he became instantly aware that baby had forced it’s way out . On a reflex he extended his hand to save the baby from falling head down.
The good news is that, baby which was miraculously saved by his father and now doing well along with the mother.The father had gifted him, literally the second life.
Hope you liked the amazing rescue of a tiny life. In comparison, there are people, who are hell bent on extinguishing lives and put people in misery. God give them sanity so that they immediately stop the blood bath.
Wishing for peace and happiness to all.
Adieu for now
