"Would I be able to meet my son again" COVID survivor talks to Sachin about her experience
Kozhikode native Shini Marcos survived COVID-19 and is now having her second life. She was affected with COVID-19 while working in a carehome in Israel and spent 21 days on ventilator. She returned to life after one and a half months of treatment and struggles. During Mother's Day video talk arranged by Mathrubhumi, Sachin Tendulkar also asked Shini about her survival.
Though Shini took part in the discussion from Israel, she had to leave early as an elderly person in the carehome fell sick suddenly. However, she shared what she wanted to share through a video message.
"This is my second life actually. I came back to life through a miracle. When I was in the hospital bed without any guarantee of survival, I thought about my son and family. Those were the most cursed days of my life. I even thought if I would ever be able to meet my son again."
"I have a question to you. Can you please share a moment in your life when you missed your family and mother a lot, as you were busy with matches and tournaments?"
Sachin replied to Shini: "There are many moments when I missed my family badly. We will have ups and downs in our lives. Then we will wish for the presence of our dear ones. I think it is very hard to live without them. But we have to fulfill our responsibilities and give more attention to it. And also we will have to perform. I kept trying for that always. Fortunately, I could talk to them every day. It is really soothing and helps us see things with hope. That's how I used to go forward."
