Two big breaking news of recent times is how kids in Bihar dying due to encephalitis and how Shikhar Dhawan is out from the world cup due to a thumb injury. Although both these news pieces are totally unrelated an incident that happened in Bihar seems to have linked them both in another piece of breaking news.
In an unfortunate incident in Bihar, a kid suffering from acute encephalitis broke his thumb on Friday night. Acute Encephalitis Syndrome (AES) has claimed the lives of more than 75 kids in just one fortnight, thus exposing the administration and politicians who are clueless.
PM Modi recently wished Dhawan, who is out from the world cup owing to an injury in his left thumb, a speedy recovery. He also expressed his grief and added that the pitch is going to miss Dhawan. However, kids suffering from AES just failed to draw his attention.
To draw PM Modi’s attention towards dying children, an 8-year-old kid, Bhanu, broke his thumb by placing it on the hinges of a hospital’s door. Bhanu’s father said that he did so out of innocence as he thought that Modi wishes speedy recovery for only those who have a thumb injury.
