whose heart is it anyway!

Arun, a dalit boy of 13 who looks 9 will undergo heart surgery next week...
Today we were worried as the doctor feel his condition is deteriorating...

A wonderful support network has suddenly been set in place by the magic of the net and people from all walks of life, people who maybe a few moments back did not know each other, or project why have been by woven by invisble strings into a beautiful web of love and concern for an unknown child.

Arun should have been operated 2 years back; his parents had even collected part of the funds requirted, but the sudden demise of both his paternal grand parents led to the funds being used for funeral rites.
The family could never collect the sum again as the father lost his job and two sisters had to be married..

Arun waited in the wings, nursing his hurting heart...

Did the child ever question the unfairness of life or did he simply accept the reality he was born into: that children are very low on the scale of priorities..
Time went by, slowly taking its toll of many hurting hearts...

We got to know about Arun only a month back and set what I have decided to name why's support network in motion. mails were sent, calls made and slowly the impossible seemed possible..

Then came recognition, media glare, celluloid promises and hope that maybe this time things would be different. They were as arun's main operation is taken care of by a complex nexus that I will chose to ignore as it gets the worts out of me. There were battles, and some home truths spelt out but then things fell in place and the date has been set.

But silently, in the background the little whyBees continued to spin their web and fill all the spaces still left, always ready to work harder should nexuses fail!
