Puri: Mother’s love and kindness can make miracles happen but they have fallen short for a 23-year-old youth in Puri’s Nimapara area who has a non-functioning Central Nervous System and needs financial support for a healthy life.

In 2014, Hemant Sahu, a construction-labourer fell down from a high floor while working on a pucca house in Puri’s Atharnala area. The hard blow caused him spinal cord injury following which his Central Nervous System became non-operational.

Hemant was rushed to a private hospital in Bhubaneswar for treatment and a rod was inserted in his back to provide support. The entire procedure cost Hemant’s parents a total of Rs 10 lakh, which they had gathered after selling their land. Subsequently, they had no money left to invest in the revival of their son’s nervous system.

Hemant is currently bed-ridden due to paralysis in the bed of ward no- 112 in the Gopabandhu Ayurveda Mahabidyalaya, Puri. Mother Sulochana Sahu never leaves his side and sit beside him while wiping away tears from her eyes using a ‘pallu’.

While she has requested for financial support from the government, Hemant has expressed his wish to die under euthanasia. He believes that there is no point in living a restricted life as even after surgery he won’t be able to perform a lot of physical activities.

Doctor Sangram Keshari Pradhan has said that the operation to revive his nerves requires Rs 1 lakh that the Sahu family is unable to arrange for by hook or by crook. They have sold several of their valuable personal belonging and there is simply no way out of this suffering.

While Hemant really wishes to be able to eat with his own hands and walk using his two legs, the situation forces him to think of ending his life to end the misery.
