The corona virus served as a wall between families, so technical arrangements have also proved to be very helpful in ending the distance between the patient and their family. One such view was seen in Lok Nayak Jai Prakash, the largest government hospital treating Corona in Delhi.
The importance of many relationships is more than the relationship of blood. Many such relationships were seen forming inside hospitals even during the period of corona infection. The brothers, who were undergoing treatment for corona in hospitals, were wiped away from the sisters by the dreaded virus on the day of Rakshabandhan, but a high-tech arrangement at the hospital brought the realization of this relationship to the ICU.
On the occasion of Rakshabandhan, sister LNJP reached the hospital expecting to send Rakhi to the corona patient brother. Amravati did not know that her brother, who has not been able to see for the past one week, will be able to see Rakhi tied in her brother’s wrists.
Came to Delhi from Patna 9 days ago
Amravati’s brother Jagannath Jha (62 years), who lives in Indrapuri, Central Delhi, had come from Patna to Delhi Kidney 9 days ago, but during this time, Amravati’s brother Corona got infected by infection and was called Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Hospital. Was admitted to the ICU. Amravati could not even see her brother for the last one week, and today when she reached the hospital on the occasion of Rakshabandhan, she could not stop the tears after seeing her brother on video call.
Actually, when Amravati reached the waiting area of LNJP Hospital, the medical staff present here said to send a rakhi to the corona patient brother. After this, the hospital not only took Rakhi, ICRA admitted to Amravati’s brother Jagannath but also introduced a sister to her brother through video call. Amravati cried after seeing her corona patient brother.
Amravati said, ‘My brother is admitted here for the last one week. He lived in Patna and came to Delhi for kidney treatment, but Corona got infected. Thought that this time Rakshabandhan will celebrate together, but now he is hospitalized, so I thought I would come here and see. It was found here that Rakhi is being sent, so I sent Rakhi. It was nice to see my rakhi in my brother’s hand and also happy.
Vijay Kumar Jha, Amravati’s husband and brother-in-law of his Corona patient brother Jagannath Jha, said, ‘Someone had told that there is an option of video calling in LNJP Hospital. I came thinking that if I get my wife to talk to her brother, then their blessings and rakhi will reach them. Maybe they get protection from the thread of Rakhi. Now Rakhi also reached him and saw him despite being treated on video call. But their condition is getting a little worse, then the doctor is requested to fix them. It is a matter of happiness that the sister’s defense has reached her brother and the festival of Raksha Bandhan is also completed.
‘On the day of Rakshabandhan, the sadness of being away from my brother has also reduced’
At the same time, Rakshabandhan also brought happiness for the staff nurse who took care of corona patients in hospitals away from their family for many days. Rakhi sent by a sister to her Corona patient brother, was decorated by the staff nurse present here on the wrist of that brother. During this, tilak was also done and sweets were also fed. The happiness of both faces while feeding sweets was communicating positivity in the corona ward of the hospital. For the staff nurse who is tying a rakhi to the Corona patients here, the misery of being away from her brother on the day of Rakshabandhan has also reduced.
Director of Lok Nayak Jai Prakash (LNJP) Hospital, Dr. Suresh Kumar said that this has been possible through video conferencing as Rakshabandhan is a holy festival and every sister dreams of tying rakhi to her brother. Relatives are not allowed inside with patients being treated for corona, but they are connected through video conferencing.
Dr. Suresh said, ‘Some sisters have come to the hospital here to tie rakhi to their brothers, we have given their rakhi to their brothers and they will be connected to the patient brother there through video call. Sister present in ICU will tie rakhi to his brother and feed him sweets and his sister can see his live picture sitting here. This will make them very happy and with this festival of Rakshabandhan, the sadness of illness will be overcome through Rakhi. Due to this, all the staff are also happy that we are celebrating the festival of Raksha Bandhan here also.
