Here comes the final episode of our OFFstage stories- the Offstage story of ‘Medical helps’. परमार्थ do a lot of work for the well being and health of slum dweller that it covers. Let us explore some on them with sip of hot tea at Ramesh Bhai's stall and see what other participants have to ‘discuss on tea' today.
It is a random pleasant day at a tea stall situated near IET college's Main Gate. The aroma of tea is in atmosphere, as usual, vendor is making 'masala tea', in the best sense of its flavor. Some 6-7 people are sitting on the benches, waiting for their cups. They will be introduced with the flow of narration. Birds are chirping in melody, most likely, they are singing some morning song. Mr. Ramesh who owns that very tea stall broke the silence by greeting Mr. Gopal, who is driver of our college's ambulance.
Mr. Ramesh: Raam Raam, Gopal ji, how's the kid?Mr. Gopal: Raam Raam Ramesh bhai, by God's grace kid is out of danger and is recovering fast. Mr. Ramesh: God is really great. What exactly happened to the kid and how you came to know about him?
Mr. Gopal: Ramesh bhai, the face and burns of that poor kid in my conscience is not fading for even a while. The kid is just 8 years old and reside in adjacent 'Mohibullapur Slum'. Yesterday's noon, he was flying kite and his kite got stuck in high load overhead electric cables. In his little age and little knowledge, he tried to escape his kite from vicious wires and got shock burns. The little body got burnt about 70 percent of the total. The burns were so scary that a soft-hearted person could have fainted just by its look. It was Almighty's grace that some of the college student called me and informed me about the emergency. I was pondering that how will I ask college administration to allow me to rush that kid to the hospital, but then the person on other side of call added that they have taken the permission from the administration and all I need to do is to act fast and carry the child to Civil Hospital. I dashed ambulance to the slum, some college students were waiting for me. As soon as possible we conveyed the kid to hospital and that group of students completed all the admission formalities and got the kid admitted in emergency. The mother of the kid was also with us, but you know well Ramesh bhai, how poor are the residents of Mohibullapur slum, they hardly manage meals, leave along costly medicine and treatments. Those youngsters paid all the bill. Doctor was expected to arrive in some 10 minutes or so. I had to return, so I asked them for the way back to college. Two of them stayed there and remaining two joined me. On our way back, we conversed a little. I asked them why two of them stayed there, which they replied, the kid's mother has very less knowledge about things and she can't manage things alone, so those two will assist the kid with all the requirements. I admired them by saying that, bhaiyaa you people are doing great job by helping that poor kid, God will surely bless him with a fast recovery. In response, they just smiled. Later in the evening someone told me that those youngsters are linked with social club of our college - परमार्थ .
