Two faces of our nation .
On one side are people like Baba Ram Rahim, A Raja, Lalu, Mayawati, Badals etc, whose only purpose of life is cheating and looting. On the other hand are people like Dasrath Manjhi and Latha Kare. We all know the story of Dasrath Manjhi.
Today read story of Lata B.Kare –
The late Lata Bhagwan Kare, a 65-year-old resident of a small village in Buldhana district, Maharashtra, is survived by 3 daughters as well as her husband.
She and her husband had worked hard throughout their lives, spending their savings on the marriages of their daughters.
After the last of the daughters’ marriages, she and her husband started working on day basis in the nearby farms, making just enough to survive.
One day suddenly, her husband felt uneasy and was diagnosed by a local doctor as suffer from some mysterious infection.
Lataji was left baffled, with no money in hand she nontheless took him to the nearby government hospital, where doctors recommended her to take him to the terminal hospital in Baramati as further tests had to be conducted. 😕
Lataji was distraught, but mustered her strength and begged her neighbors and relatives before finally gathering the necessary sum, and then left for Baramati for the further tests of her husband. 👍🏽✨
Doctor moved her husband in the check-up zone, shortly after the Doctor returned, saying that said these tests weren’t enough, and that further tests and medications were required, which were going to cost a packet. 😦
Lataji’s world collapsed, her eyes widespread in disguise, nowhere to go, no money to treat her husband. Her world was shattered, she couldn’t digest this helplessness. 🥀
They came out of the hospital, stopped by nearby samosawala, and had two samosas on piece of newspaper.
Her eyes fell on the bold Marathi headline on that newspaper – the headline was about the ‘Baramati Marathon and it’s prize money’ – thoughts flooded her mind ! 💰💰
Next day, Baramati Marathon was about to commence, everyone geared up in their sports shoes, cozy shorts and tracks, sweat absorbing tees. And there came 65-year-old Lata Bhagwan Kare, wearing torn saree (lugda) and bare-footed : an unlikely contender. 🤢
One further obstacle: The organizers weren’t ready to let her participate, but she pleaded and managed to persuade them to approve her participation. ✨👌🏽
Marathon started, she hitched her saree above her ankles, and ran like an 16-year-old teen ! 🏃🏾♀
She couldn’t think of anything else, other than her husband’s life hanging by a thread : Sharp rocks and pebbles came along her way, her feet bled, but she continued. 🔆
The crowd cheered her on, applauding her fortitude, especially in view of her age.
She won the marathon & the prize money ! ! 🥇🏆 😮
– But the real prize was, that she gave her husband a chance
