Thank you...

It has been a couple of life changing months for me.

My mother was ill, very ill - suffering with ARDS. I knew all those major diseases and sicknesses, however, never knew about this one. Never knew such horrifying illness exists.

It started off all of a sudden, without any pre-symptoms. Only fever, upset stomach, vomiting etc. Out of the blue the condition deteriorated extremely. She had to put into Ventilation. They said it started with neomonia, then liquid was accumulated in her lung - oh!!!

She was into ventilator for almost two and a half months. Other major organs of the body had started to degrade, kidneys affected, diabetic symptoms started, bed sores, lung infections etc etc.

What more worse was that we had to put her in a government medical college in Agartala, Tripura. No, absolutely no medical facilities, treatment skills was available. Nothing could be done there, so helpless situation. No way you can shift her to a proper medical establishment - except of an air ambulance. But the condition was so bad that we could not take the risk to move her. But again the condition was worsening or a bad stated status quo.

We had to take the risk, no way we could continue there. Dr Navneet from EMSOS is such a wonderful professional. With his help we could shift her to Delhi - Gurgaon, in fact. Artemis hospital. Struggle re-started, yet again. She was admitted in the ICU there for full one month and then another fortnight in cabin.

Finally it all ended well, thank God. Now my mother is with me.

Thanks everybody, thank you very much for everything.

It all could be possible only due to my wife, Chaitali, who worked relentlessly and served my mother.

Finally, above all, thanks to GOD to be with me, with us always in these hard times of my life.
