It is recorded that approximately 10 million female fetuses have been aborted in last two decades in India. We see women who bear daughters go through immense abuse and pressure, as daughters are considered a financial burden on the family.
That’s why, campaigns like ‘Save The Girl Child’ have emerged in the last few years, to counter this perception and urge people to put an end to this practice. But this story will surely change the opinion of a parent about girl child. It will also warm the cockles of peoples’ hearts.
They say angels are often disguised as daughters and a girl named Pooja Bijarnia has, in fact, proved that. Like how we would go to any extent to ensure our loved ones and family members are safe, healthy and happy, this young girl did something just like that. At a time like this, the story of a daughter who saved the life of her father is an important benchmark in this struggle.
The brave daughter gave a true meaning to daddy’s angel as she went a mile ahead to ensure her father’s safety and long life.
In his Facebook post, Dr. Rachit Bhushan Shrivastava wrote about Pooja Bijarnia, a brave daughter, who underwent a liver transplant to save her father. He believes that Pooja is a real-life hero and her story is a sharp retort to all those who consider daughters to be inferior to sons. Dr. Rachit also shared the father-daughter photograph in the post that has now gone insanely viral on the platform.
Bhushan wrote, “#BRAVEDAUGHTER: There are some REAL LIFE HEROES who don’t believe in words like LUCK, FEAR and IMPOSSIBLE.When people say that DAUGHTERS are useless she is an answer to them.A girl whom I don’t know personally but then for me, she is a HERO who underwent LIVER TRANSPLANT and saved the life of her father.Proud of you girl and there is so much to learn from people like her.God bless you Pooja Bijarnia”
When her father needed a liver transplant, Pooja Bijarnia came forward to save his life. The loving daughter donated a part of her liver to her father. Dr. Rachit Bhushan Shrivastava writes that Pooja’s selfless act for her father is an answer to all the bigoted minds who think sons are superior to daughters.
The post has soon gone viral on the internet, with users expressing their respect for her. The post uploaded on November 5, 2017, has garnered over 14k likes, more than 11k shares and Internet has lauded the daughter for her ultimate display of bravery and love.
Pooja seems really happy and proud to be able to save her father’s life! The doctor later thanked netizens for sharing his post generously.
