Bi's wish to see her daughter comes true!
Bi grew up in a large family with a lot of siblings. Her family raised and sold goats for a living. Even though they were not well off, she was very loved in her family. She always wanted a large family of her own when she grew up.
Unfortunately, she couldn't bear children. This news devastated her and she fell into depression. To help her overcome depression, her siblings let her raise their children. Her husband earned a meager income but was happy to support her in raising the children. Over time, the children got married and her husband passed away. The marriage of the children and the death of her husband hit Bi with loneliness.
Bi, then started raising and selling goats for earning her livelihood. However, one goat changed Bi's life. She instantly connected with her. Bi named her Sita. Sita showed a lot of human emotions and they both grew very fond of each other.
One day Bi noticed a lump on her breast. Further tests confirmed that she was in an advanced stage of breast cancer. Afraid of the cost and suspicious of hospitals, Bi denied treatment.
It was then that a relative referred her to Karunashraya. She visited Karunashraya and agreed to get admitted as she felt cared for by the staff. In no time Bi became one of the favorite patients of the doctors, counselors and nursing staff.
While they cared well for her, Bi was always concerned about Sita. Her niece had informed her that Sita was unwell and depressed. Bi insisted on going home to visit the goat who had now become her daughter. But Bi's condition had deteriorated and she couldn't be sent home.
And so began the long journey of bringing Sita to the hospital to fulfil Bi's last wish.
The staff at Karunashraya made all efforts to bring Sita to the place. Sita, unfamiliar with the sound and feel of vehicles and would keep trying jump out of the vehicles. After three days of failed attempts, the staff managed to bring Sita to the hospital on a two-wheeler!
Karunashraya had seen many reunions and wishes being fulfilled but a wish in the form of a goat was new. All the staff followed Sita to Bi's ward and the whole place was lit with smiles and tears of joy.
Sita was surprisingly disciplined. She walked along one side of the corridor and seemed calm and composed. On meeting Bi, she turned her face away and refused to look up at her. It was as if she was annoyed with Bi for staying away from her for over 6 months. She relented only when an overwhelmed Bi picked her up and placed her on her lap. A happy Sita peacefully dozed off on her lap.
The goat slept in Bi's lap like it had finally reached home after a long journey. Bi spent the whole day with her relatives and Sita and looked like she couldn't have asked for more.
A few days later, Bi bid goodbye to the world knowing Sita was in good hands.
