Arya and Saira | Mathrubhumi

New Delhi: Arya Aldrin, a Keralite studying in Kyiv, cleared all her hurdles to bring back her pet dog Saira from war-torn Ukraine to India with her. Saira is a 5-months old Siberian Husky breed. Both of them are now at Kerala House in New Delhi and will return to Kerala on a Friday afternoon flight.

Arya, a second-year medical student at Vinnytsia Medical University, Kyiv, remained adamant that she would not return home from the battlefield without Saira. Finally, the soldiers on the Ukrainian border also gave up in front of their bonding. Arya is the daughter of Aldrin and Kochurani from Devikulam in Idukki.

Arya arrived on a rescue flight from Romania to India, but the Air Asia flight to Kerala chartered by the state government refused to admit Saira. Now, she has decided to return home at her own expense on the Air India flight with Saira. Arya's father Aldrin Devikulam said that he has booked tickets for both of them for the flight at 2 pm on Friday.

Saira is very tired after a long journey and needs to consult a vet as soon as possible, said Arya.
