She was so happy to see her new born baby, he was charming, his smile was cute and his cheeks were so chubby that she could not stop herself from pulling them every now and then. Her husband, the newborn’s father, was also very happy to have a son, although he would have preferred a daughter.
He took the baby to hospital, paid the doctor 1000 rupees and the baby was taken to operation theatre, where his hands were amputated, and blood was taken out.
She was crying but could not do anything; they cannot afford a healthy baby.
She was showing him to tourist at Gateway of India, his hands were amputated and he was very skinny, he no more had chubby cheeks.
The tourist gave her a 10 rupee note and took a photograph.
She was delighted, after giving Sudhira ‘the local’ Dada 5 rupees and her husband 2 rupees, she can have 3 rupees for herself. She could feed him something.
She lives the life of a beggar at Mumbai, she had come here from her home town in UP to earn some money.
