She survived a Mumbai suburban train accident, but lost a leg. But she had her loving husband as her and their two daughters’ anchor. He gave up his job and took up home tuition for a living so that he could be with his crippled wife.
Even though it was tough managing household work and arranging funds for his wife’s medical treatments, he somehow managed. For the lady of the house, his constant support and assurance ensured that her pain was manageable.
But tragedy struck the family again as though fate did not like the family to stay happy despite their meagre means. In a little over a year later when the bus her husband was travelling in, plunged into a valley and killed him on the spot.
The family stared at a wall. But the determination and the never-say-die spirit shown by her husband when he was alive made sure that she took up the challenge. She picked up the pieces slowly and raised her little daughters all on her own, by taking tuitions at home, her artificial leg notwithstanding.
There began a story of resilience, determination and finally triumph. Today Litty is a proud mother who has seen her little children grown into ladies of character and powerhouses of grit. BRIDGE raises a toast to this lady of pluck and courage in the face of adversities and present her the ACT Fibernet BRIDGE Resilience Award.
