This is the story of two young hearts from Pakistan who traveled all the way and came to Baba's Hospital in Bangalore seeking health, solace and more important much-needed love.
“My name is Shayada and I come from Sukkur, Pakistan,” said the middle-aged woman dressed in a light yellow salwar kameez.Clinging to her was the little one, about 6-7 years old in the loose-fitting blue dress that all cardiac inpatients in Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Medical Sciences (SSSIHMS-WF) wear.
“He is Sail, born seven years ago,” she said, her arm tightly around her son. “I have seven children; he is the last one. All other children except him are healthy. Since the time he was born, he has always been unwell with fever and cough. For this reason, I could not even place him in a school. In fact I never encouraged him to even go out of the house because of his frail condition; my eyes were always on him,” the mother confided.
