When a Jamia Nagar woman needed a liver, her young son didn’t hesitate in donating one to save her life. However, the 28-year-old son’s gift of life to her ailing mother failed to resuscitate her as she died today at 6:30 am in Apollo where she was undergoing treatment for the last few days.
Shahe Alam Rajput, a resident of Joga Bai, told OKHLATIMES.COM that the liver transplantation took place on December 29 and his mother was doing well.
“I donated 75 per cent of my liver to my mother. She was going treatment for the liver for the last two years after the organ failed due to water. After the successful operation, my mother 55-year-old Talat Parveen was in ICU. It was on Wednesday that her conditions deteriorated and she was rushed for treatment in the hospital. Doctors said that her kidney and other organs got affected. She was put on ventilator and she died in the morning,” he said.
Shahe Alam is a Jamia alumnus and is a social active and member of MIM in Okhla. He has two brothers and 2 sisters all married save him. He said his mother had a dream to marry him and that is what she started telling me after she came to know about her liver ailment.
Shahe Alam’s mother was laid to rest today at Batla House graveyard with large number of residents, including local leaders, taking part in the last rites.
