Parents test positive, Delhi cop ensures their child's safety

Date: May 10
Location: New Delhi

An incident on Mothers' Day moved everyone.

A head constable from the Delhi police took care of a child, whose parents had tested positive for the novel coronavirus.

A young COVID-positive couple living at Radio Colony in GTB Nagar were in a dilemma about the care of their six-month-old baby.

Relatives residing in different parts of Uttar Pradesh could not take the child as both Delhi and UP are in lockdown.

A relative living in Meerut asked for help from Head Constable Rakhi, who is posted at Delhi's Shahdara police station.

Rakhi, after getting approval from her senior officers, approached the parents and took custody of the baby and ensured it was handed over to its maternal grandmother, who lives in UP's Modinagar.

 


Muslims perform last rites of a Hindu woman

Date: May 10
Location: Srinagar

Hundreds of people, mostly Muslim, recently gathered at the home of Kashmiri Pandit V L Vishen, who is the principal of Caset School in Srinagar's Karan Nagar area, to condole the death of his wife, Raj Dulari Vishen.

They made all the arrangements for the funeral as per Hindu rituals, presenting a beautiful picture of Kashmiriyat, which signifies the centuries old indigenous secularism of Jammu and Kashmir.

Though Raj Dulari lost her battle of life, her family and neighbours consider her a true fighter. During the tumultuous 1990s, when all Pandits were leaving Kashmir due to militancy, she supported her husband and decided to stay back with her Muslim brethren.

Besides making all the arrangements, her Muslim neighbours helped carry her body to the crematorium.

They said she had always treated them like her children and they too respected her like a mother.

It's due to the courage shown by a woman at a time when others decided to quit that today, all her neighbours, irrespective of the community they belong to, came to bid her a final goodbye.
