“It takes just Votes to become a Politician, but only Blessings let you Keep that Position for Long…”
Parth is a happy-go-lucky boy from Amreli, Gujarat. At the delicate age of 12-year, when an average school boy plays cricket, eats junk food and enjoys his school life, he’s battling a fatal disease, that would’ve left him dead. Parth is suffering from a rare, deadly brain disorder that occurs in 1 out of 10,000 people in the world. He’s suffering from SSPE (Subacute Sclerosing Panencephalitis) or Dawn’s disorder.
It results in progressive brain inflammation that occurs due to infection caused by the measles (Rubeola) virus. The end results are deadly. The disease is debilitating and the symptoms worsen with age. However, early intervention and medication can save the life of a patient, if the treatment is started at an early age.
When Parth was diagnosed with this deadly disorder, his father had spent all his savings for his treatment. He sold off their family jewellery and property to arrange money for his treatment. Failing to raise sufficient amount, the poor, dejected father almost gave his hope. With no other option left, he thought of writing a letter to the Prime Minister.
At first, he wasn’t sure if the PM would reply, but to his complete surprise, he received a positive response in just few days.
Parth’s family received a letter from the PMO that assured him the best treatment at AIIMS (All India Institute of Medical Sciences). The PM ensured that Parth gets financial assistance and full support from the doctors. He also provided his family with moral support to cope with the difficult situation.
Now, Parth’s condition is being treated by the best specialists of the world. Even though the financial aspects of SSPE treatment have been covered, it’s an uphill battle for Parth. According to Child Neurologist Dr. Sheffali Gulati, who’s assigned to handle Parth’s case, the doctors are performing all the required tests to diagnose the extent of this degenerative brain disease.
Nevertheless, Parth’s family is hopeful. They’re not just thrilled but grateful to the PM because their son is getting the required treatment. So, there’s still hope for him.
The entire world may criticise the PM and hold him accountable for demonetisation and various other factors, but there are several kids in the country like Parth, who look up to Narendra Modi as their guardian angel.
This isn’t the first time that the PM has stepped in to extend help to the needy. Earlier, a girl named Taiyyaba from Agra requested financial aid for the treatment of her congenital heart disease and an eleven year old boy from Unnao had written to the PM about the difficulty he experienced when crossing the railway tracks to reach his school.
All these letters had prompted the PM to arrange several measures to help those who’re in need. These instances highlight him as an efficient and compassionate political leader.
