A man in Bhawanipatna in Odisha’s Kalahandi district had to travelled 12 kms, carry the body of his wife on his shoulders as the hospital authorities did not provide a mortuary van or an ambulance.

The incident occurred at the district headquarters hospital where the 42-year-old Amang Dei was being treated for tuberculosis, Odisha TV reported.

Despite all his efforts, Dei’s husband Dana Manjhi was not able to avail an ambulance and therefore had to carry his wife’s body on his shoulders. Manjhi was accompanied by his 12-year-old daughter.

man“The hospital authorities said that there are no vehicles. I pleaded with them saying I am a poor person and cannot afford a vehicle to carry my wife’s body. Despite repeated requests, they said they cannot offer me any help,” Dana Majhi told Odisha TV.

    खुद ही देख लो ! भारत में मानवता मर चुकी है और लोग तिरंगा लेकर सडको पर घुम – घुम कर , कहते फिरते है कि हमसे बडा देशभक्त कोई नहीं हो सकता है ! कुछ लोग तो दिन रात देश भक्ति का ढिंढोरा पीटते रहते हैं ओर देश भक्ति का सर्टिफ़िकेट भी खुद ही बाँटते फिरते है !
    सचमुच अब देश बदल गया है ओर मानवता मर चुकी हैं !
