About one-and-a-half years ago,Bhupinder Singh Sekhon,a city-based businessman met with a road accident and has been in a comma since.

Although doctors from Dayanand Medical College and Hospital have given up hope of his survival,yet Harsh,his wife,is struggling hard to save his husband.

With quite a depressed mind,Harsh says,“I am trying my level best to take care of my husband. I have no money with me as what he earned before the accident has been spent on his treatment. For many months together,he is on a homeopathic medicine prescribed by Dr Satpal Gupta of Agar-Nagar. I am thankful to him for free treatment and also to Jaswinder Kaur Sidhu,head-mistress of DAV Public School,Sarabha Nagar extension,who also extended a helping hand. The homeopathy assures me that my husband would lead a normal life one day though it may take time. About a month ago,he showed some improvement and started eating food in a normal way. But unfortunately he developed a urine-related problem. I again took him to Gurdev Hospital and got him medicine for passing the urine. Now,again he is in second stage of comma.”

Every day this young lady wakes up with a hope to see improvement in her husband health and passes the whole day taking care of him — sometime she is feeding him through a rice-pipe and sometimes cleaning the urine bag etc.

With tearful eyes,Harsh said,“It was on August 28,2007 when my husband was travelling with his friend in a car. The eyewitnesses told me that as they tried to cross the unmanned railway crossing near Sunet Village,their car stopped,following which my husband tried to restart it but in the meantime train passed from there and dragged their car upto half a kilometer. His friend died on spot while my husband received serious injuries. He was rushed to Raghunath Hospital and then referred to DMCH. After the doctors at DMCH lost hope,I brought him back to my rented residence.”

Appeal to Good Samaritans
Harsh who has spent more than lakhs of rupees on her husband’s treatment,said,“I am penniless now. Being a graduate,I could get two tutions at home. I can not leave him all alone. My six-year-old son is a UKG student of CFC school. I am thankful to the school director for allowing free education to him. But I am really worried as from where shall I get the money for my husband’s treatment as sometimes his health gets deteriorated more and I have to rush to the hospital for allopathic treatment. As we married against the wishes of our parents,we have no family support. I appeal to the public in general to help me at this critical time. If someone is willing to donate money,he or she can contact me on 9855006120 or can also deposit a cheque in my Axis bank account number 198010100024365.”
