The mark of true love is that it never fades away, especially in the face of adversity. In fact, it only grows stronger and deeper. And you can draw all the strength that you need to face the adversity from that ocean of unconditional love.
Before Bharti and Dinesh felt this unconditional love for each other, they were best of friends. They first met 10 years ago during an office meeting and instantly hit it off. Dinesh was a total charmer. Bharti, on the other hand, was shy and reserved. Perhaps, it was their opposite personalities that made them connect with each other. They were so comfortable in each others company that they spent a lot of time together. Their friends thought they were in love.
Dinesh and Bharti shared a passion for travelling. They frequently went on road trips along with their friends. They opened their hearts out and shared their dreams. While Dinesh wanted to be an entrepreneur, Bharti loved her corporate job. Dinesh constantly pushed her to study further for better job prospects. She paid heed to his advice and left her job to pursue a professional course.
When they were apart, they realized they couldn’t stay away from each other. It was then when they realized they were in love.
However, they decided to work towards their career goals before taking the next step. They faced several challenges during this stage. Dinesh decided to leave his job and start something of his own. But that didn't work out for him. Bharti too struggled at her new job. Together, they eventually weathered the storm as Bharti made progress at her new job and Dinesh was on course to start a new venture with his friend. The stage was now set for their love to culminate into marriage as they decided to talk to their parents.
Unfortunately, Dinesh and Bharti had no idea of the storm that lay ahead. In December last year, they trekked up to the holy shrine of Vaishnodevi. After returning, Dinesh faced severe leg cramps and felt extremely weak. Upon regular checkup, it was found that his blood pressure has shot up to dangerously high level. When all the efforts to bring his BP down failed, doctors advised them to get a few tests done. To everyone's shock, it was found that Dinesh had only one kidney since birth and that too had failed (End-Stage Renal Failure). He needs an urgent kidney transplant to survive. Dinesh had lost his father early and the doctors have ruled out the possibility of using his mother’s kidney. In the absence of a matching donor in the family, the only option to save him was to use a kidney from a deceased patient (Cadaver Kidney transplant). Bharti registered for the same in Star KIMS Hospital, Trichy, as the wait time was relatively less.
The surgery along with the pre and post-transplant care will cost Rs. 22 lakh. Meanwhile, Dinesh has to undergo 3 dialysis sessions each week (Rs 50,000/month) and it needs to continue till the kidney transplant is done. Bharti, along with their friends is fighting hard to fund his ongoing treatment. But the amount is huge and is needed urgently. It is a life-and-death situation.
“When people ask me why are you doing this, I tell them that more than him, I am doing it for myself. I cannot imagine living my life without him. Moreover, had I been in his place, he would have done the same for me. Your support is going to save not just one, but two lives. It will ensure that we get to live the future that we have dreamt of. The dream we have worked so hard for. We’ve waited patiently for the last 10 years to reach our goals. Please accept my gratitude in advance”
