Little Ganesh


This cute boy in the pic is of Ganesh whom I met in Aurangabad, a small town of Maharashtra. Ganesh is a name loved by Maharashtrians and He is known as elephant God. The original God Ganesh required head transplant according to Hindu mythology. The little boy I am talking about, I found in a small restaurant. By first impression, I thought he was one of millions of child labourers. I asked his name, he replied – Ganesh, I further asked do you go to school, he said ‘NO’. I asked why? He said, he has a hole in his heart. I was totally surprised. Actually he was not the child labourer but the small kid of restaurant owner. His father and grandmother told me that his treatment would require 50-60 thousand rupees in Aurangabad. I assured them free treatment and surgery at AIIMS – All India Institute of Medical Sciences if they had ‘Below Poverty Line’ Card which they had and referral from doctor under whom he is being treated.
There are more Ganesh in this poverty ridden country but the least which we can do is to show empathy, compassion and the right way for correct and timely medical assistance.

    This is such a beautiful story. I believe “angels” come in different forms. And on that day you were their angel. 🙂 It’d be fascinating to see all the events in your life that led you to that moment.

    Anyway, it’s amazing how a little bit of information can change a person’s life. Thank you for being you. Like Sandeep said above, together we can transform society.

    This is a story of how one act of compassion can change a family’s life and thus, the world.

    Together, we are the most beautiful miracle.

  5. Bless you and little Ganesh. You are indeed an angel.
