Sangitha S Halimani, a 25-year-old constable from Bengaluru, gave a new chance at life to a one-day-old baby girl, who was bitten by ants after being dumped on streets.
On Wednesday, when a passerby noticed a one-day-old baby girl on the street, he immediately reported the incident to the child protection activists.
The activists rushed to the location and were shocked to find a one-day-old infant left unwrapped and shivering in the chilling cold.
Prior to the arrival of Sangitha, the baby was fed with formula milk and was on IV fluids. But when Sangitha came to the hospital she was moved by the condition of a one-day-old baby girl and sought approval from doctors to breastfeed her.
She mentioned to TOI:
“The orphaned baby girl reminded me of my own child. I have breastfed the baby after obtaining permission from the doctors. The baby is fine now.”
Sangitha, who is herself a mother of a 10-month-old girl, criticized the baby’s parents:
“I don’t understand how could the baby’s parents leave her, that too uncovered in this chilly weather.”
In today’s world where most of us are losing compassion for each other, Sangitha’s act of kindness is hard to ignore.
How many times have you criticized cops for not performing their duties well?
How many times have you gone beyond the call of duty and performed something really nice for the other person?
And, that’s the reason why cops like Sangitha deserves our appreciation and respect.
We wish such acts of kindness and compassion are celebrated more often. Before we lose our faith in humanity! We wish the baby girl a speedy recovery and hope she will find her new home very soon.
At I For Her, we celebrate stories of real heroes who try their level best to help women in need. Sangitha has given us an example of how kind the world can be if we have more women like her.
