Story

Who is Parjanya?

Parjanya is like any other innocent 4-year old. Playing with toys, especially with a dinosaur. Running with around with friends. Playing hide and seek with his mommy at dinner time. Craving for Pappodoms. Reciting his favourite rhymes. Going to bed listening to stories. And so on. Except that he is really not. He is fighting for his life after lately diagnosed with Leukaemia after a series of misdiagnoses. And he needs help. There is more than 90% hope that he can emerge a winner that based on the experts’ opinion. And I want my nephew to survive and lead a normal healthy life like I do hope and wish for every child out there.

How did it start?

It all started few months ago when he started getting frequent fevers and feeling low in general. And he was bounced from doctor to doctor and from hospital to hospital who all not just drained the little energies left of Parjanya but also of all the meagre savings and earnings of the family. Speaking of which he does not yet know or understand what it means to be a child of a non-working, single mother who does not have any means to support. He does not still know why his father is not there with him. Needless to say they are uninsured medically or otherwise.

Parjanya’s maternal grandfather is a small time priest in one of the local temples in Kadapa (formerly known as Cuddapah), a town in the Southern State of Andhra Pradesh in India. That is where Parjanya was living till recently along with his mom. For the past four weeks and the next few months, he got a new address. A designated ward in the Paediatric unit of the Kidwai Memorial Institute of Oncology, a Cancer care hospital in Bangalore, Karnataka State, India. You can find him there trying to be a normal child when he is not being poked with any needles or drips or similar things.

So, What is the problem then?

The hospital is kind enough to waive off the professional fees but it still leaves with an estimated GBP 20,000 (about USD 26,000) that is needed for the next course of the treatment for injections, blood transfusion, chemotherapy and medication which the family do not have any means to generate. I have supported the initial phase and taking care of the family's ongoing needs and support but will need to appeal to your humanity for seeing the family through the current critical phase of the treatment. And there is a very high probability that Parjanya will emerge victor if we lend him a hand. Or two. Or many. It is an opportunity to prove that we care for our society and humanity.

Your generosity and humanity will go a long way in gifting Parjanya with the most important gift of his life-his life itself. Can you also kindly spread the word in your networks? Your wishes and support mean a lot. Hopefully on someday in the near future, Parjanya himself will thank you and remain indebted for getting his childhood back. "

    Dear Kind Hearts, I am happy to share with you your benevolence and blessings have undoubtedly helped Parjanya so far as his recent test results show. He is on the mend and any further chemo sessions seem to be quite unlikely. He will continue his regular check-up, tests, and medication as per the plan. Let's hope that he would completely recover and perhaps go to school someday soon. Thanks again for lending your hand. Sharing a recent picture where Parjanya is all dressed up in the traditional attire on the occasion of a festival:

Your kindness knows no bounds. Hope you can continue to spread the word in your groups as we still have quite a bit of distance to cover.
