All we have heard throughout our lives is how mother-in-law and daughter-in-law are always enemies. How they will go to any level to bring down the other person.
But, this unique mother-in-law daughter-in-law ‘jodi’ has shown us that’s not always true! A resident of Rajasthan’s Barmer district, 60-year-old Gani Devi decided to donate her kidney to her bahu Sonika (32) when no one came forward to help her.
As per Times of India, Sonika, a mother of two daughters, has been suffering from kidney problems for the last one year and has been living on medication. When she got her kidneys tested recently at Apollo hospital in Delhi, doctors told that both her kidneys had collapsed. She would be able to survive either with continuous dialysis or a kidney transplant.
Since dialysis was not a long-term solution, Sonika wanted to go for a kidney transplant.
At first, Sonika’s mother Bhanwari Devi was approached but she was not ready to take the risk and refused to donate the kidney.
Next up were Sonika’s father and brother, who also backed out of helping her.
On seeing her daughter-in-law in pain, Gani Devi said that she sees Sonika as her own daughter and decided to donate her kidney to Sonika.
The transplant was done on September 13, and Sonika is recovering well from the surgery. After the surgery, Sonika said that she is immensely grateful to her mother-in-law and respects her even more.
Such true life events from the remotest parts of our country, bring us hope that all is not lost. Even the most cliched thoughts are not correct and women definitely can help other women!
