In a heart breaking story, which has come to the fore from Madhya Pradesh’s Morena, an eight-year-old sat by the road with his brother’s dead body as their father tried to arrange a vehicle to take his dead son back home.
In a video, which has gone viral on social media, the 8-year-old Gulshan can be seen sitting with the body of his 2-year-old brother Raja while their father Poojaram Jatav desperately looked for a vehicle to take them home.
8 साल का बच्चा अपने भाई की लाश लेकर नाले पर बैठा है। मक्खियां भिनभिना रही हैं। ऐसा इसलिए क्योंकि एमपी के मुरैना में अस्पताल ने कह दिया, लो लाश पकड़ो और लेकर घर जाओ।
बच्चे का पिता भटकता रहा लेकिन उसे एंबुलेंस नहीं मिली। शिवराज जी का ‘विकसित’ एमपी यही है।pic.twitter.com/KF5PfZuo7C

Jatav, who’s a resident of Badfra village of Ambah, had brought Raja to the Morena District Hospital – around 450 km north of Bhopal – after being referred there by a local hospital in an ambulance.
Suffering from anaemia and ascites – abdominal swelling caused by the accumulation of fluid, most often related to liver disease – Raja died during treatment. But the ambulance that had brought them had already returned.
Jatav, who comes from a humble background, requested the doctors and staff of the hospital for a vehicle to take the body back to his village, around 30 km away. Jatav was turned down and asked by the hospital to arrange a vehicle on his own.
As per NDTV, an ambulance operator parked on the hospital premises asked for ₹1,500, which Jatav could not afford. A helpless Jatav left the hospital with the body of his son Raja with his elder son Gulshan in tow.
Jatav then decided to leave Gulshan in front of Morena’s Nehru Park as he went to look for a ride back home that he could afford. Gulshan sat there, his dead brother’s head on his lap, waiting for his father’s return.
Thankfully, a police officer Yogendra Singh picked up the body and led Gulshan back to the district hospital where Jatav and his sons were given an ambulance, at last, to make their way home.

Lata Mangeshkar’s 93rd birthday anniversary: Life story of ‘nightingale’
Today would have been late singer Lata Mangeshkar’s 93rd birthday. The ‘Queen of melody’ passed away on February 6, 2022. On her birth anniversary, Nation Next brings you her life story.
When Lata Mangeshkar got offended by Dilip Kumar and didn’t speak to him for 13 years
Nightingale of India, late Lata Mangeshkar and legendary actor late Dilip Kumar were known to share a special bond. So much so that the Queen of Melody would also tie rakhi to the latter. She was among the close ones who visited the late actor during his last days. But do you know the reason why their relation had gone sour, as a result of which they did not speak for 13 long years?
The story dates back to the time when Lata Mangeshkar was to sing ‘Laagin Naahi Chhute’ for the film Musafir, in 1957. At that time, Kumar told music composer Anil Biswas, “The Urdu of Marathis (Maharashtrians) is like dal and rice.” This offended the veteran singer, after which she decided to hone her Urdu speaking skills.
After 13 years when they met in 1970, the veteran singer remarked, “You know, Yusuf saab, I’d always heard you loathed me for being one up on you while recording the Laagi Naahin Chhute Rama duet with you in Musafir. But I only sang the way I can’t help singing any number.”
To this, Kumar gleefully asserted, “It’s precisely because you can’t help singing the way you do that my family and I adore you! How possibly could I loathe a voice so heavenly!”
On February 6, 2022, due to COVID-induced prolonged illness, the illustrious singer passed away in Mumbai.
