Thanks to love and affection of Malayalee 'bhais'; Dulal Roy returns home
Kannur: Dulal Roy looked around before entering the ambulance from his wheel chair. He was filled with gratitude to the Keralite ‘bhais’ who helped him during his time of crisis.
35-year-old Assam native Dulal Roy suffered a severe injury on his head after falling down during construction work. He was hospitalised for 2 months in an unconscious state. He has gained consciousness now and can move around with a little support. He returned to his native place as a result of the undiluted love and care by the locals. He was accompanied by 2 of his relatives on his return journey.
Dulal’s treatment and his return journey was funded by his co-workers and the locals. The locals formed a committee to collect the money required for Dulal’s treatment.
The accident took place on December 2 last year. He fell down from the first floor of the building. A surgery was required due to blood clotting in head. Initially, he was taken to a private hospital in Kannur. Later, he was shifted to the district hospital. Dr. Bushra Sheriff was in charge of his treatment.
Mathrubhumi published news stories about Dulal’s plight on December 23 and January 7. This helped in collecting money for his treatment’s sake. The locals contributed the rest of the amount from their end. The treatment cost Rs 5 lakhs in total. Dulal was also allotted money from Chief Minister’s Distress Relief Fund.
