Woman gives birth after 900km trek, ride
PATNA: A heavily pregnant and famished 28-year-old woman covered 900km from Noida on foot and in the back of a truck to reach Gopalganj on the UP-Bihar border on Thursday afternoon before her body almost gave up. As Rekha Devi went into labour and col psed, her husband Sandip Yadav was spotted frantically seeking help even as the youngest of their three daughters clung to him.
An ambulance arrived after some time to take Rekha to the Gopalganj Sadar Hospital, where she gave birth to a girl. The baby, named Shristi, was on a ventilator till late on Friday.
For 35-year-old Sandip and his young family, home is still 300km away in Supaul district. Like thousands of other migrant workers, the vegetable vendor had decided to leave for his native village after exhausting his meagre savings over a month and a half of the lockdown. The family started their journey on foot last Monday.
"We walked for hours before a truck driver spotted my nine-months-pregnant wife and possibly took pity on her," Sandip said. "He dropped us about 10km from the Balthari checkpoint in UP."
From there, the family resumed their journey on foot to reach Gopalganj, where their names and addresses were registered. "My wife started crying after covering the last 10km on foot under a scorching sun," Sandip told TOI over phone.
The ordeal for the family didn’t end here. Doctors at the go nment hospital first refused to admit Rekha, suspecting she might be positive for Covid-19. Out of desperation, Sandip called Gopalganj DM Arshad Aziz on his offi al mobile number. Aziz then directed the hospital authorities to treat Rekha. "The woman's husband hadn't informed the local authority at the inter-state checkpoint about his wife’s pregnancy," the DM said.
Gopalganj SP Manoj Kumar Tiwari said, "We will arrange a vehicle to send the family to Supaul once doctors declare the woman and her baby fit for travel."
Sandip doesn't hold a grudge ag inst anyone. He only wants his wife and newborn daughter to recover quickly so that they can all go home.

4th child....kuch to rahem karo desh pe....garib hee maroge.....satyanash kar ke rakkh diya hai desh ka
That is not his fault. Gt should have provided contraceptives.
Since there are already millions of orphan kids available for adoption in India. Also as the human p0pulation increases, the habitats of endangered wild animals decreases. India has lost vast swathes of forests due to growing p0pulation and urbanisation in recent decades, as a result- Endangered elephants and tigers are k.illing one person a day in India as humans continue to encroach on the little habitat that these animals have left.
If it was up to me, nobody would be allowed to create babies in India for the next 20 years, since we already have more than enough citizens in the 1 to 20 age bracket. It may sound cruel, but it will tremendously improve living standards for everyone in the country
Why not gt shoot all person born as 3rd ,4rth and beyond.brainless
about 50 years ago ther population of this country was less than half of current number.... just imagine the state we would have been had the gt taken stern steps that time and did not allow it grow...
it's now or never.... if we don't have a strict policy, within 10 years we will be doomed
this guy should be sent to jail... and all those jo wife ko baccha machine sjhte hain... poor woman and kids
he should be charged for forcedChooodaai and causing trouble to her wife by having 4th child when he doesn't hv the means to survive.
The vegetable vendor probably in expectation of a babay boy keeps his march adn

migrant have to stop walking on roads.
Giving birth to 4th child. Seriously?? Can you even afford to have one.
do blame Modi gt
Modi go nment or any go nment is not to be blamed .... it's permanent in our DNA and blood to ignore the plight and pain of Poor.
nothing short of an idiot, making pregnant wife walk. No neighbour will refuse help for a pregnant woman and her family. my sympathies to the woman for getting married to this guy.
After all, he goes on to deliver fouth child but doing vegetable vendor work?

Who walks 800 km like this with wife in such situation of pregnance
Please sterilize the parents. Why are they bringing 4 kids to the world when they don't have the means to raise them, provide for them and educate them?
who is responsible for his ordeal. Any guess??
Heartless India go nment. The poor are suffering. This is Modi ache din.
yes for every sin of yours and sinful citizen Modi is responsible....
what is the need of fourth baby?
Why did they decide to walk during the lockdown period instead of staying at some go nment provided shelter?
these are people with abject poverty ..... left with no choices they walk towards their home
