It’s a modern day fairytale of medical marvels. And
the protagonist is engineer Seema Sood, who only two years ago
sought permission from the president to die as a release from 15
years of crippling arthritis.
Now she is readying to climb the
steps of the majestic Rashtrapati Bhavan. In the letter to Sood
dated July 23, President Pratibha Patil has commended her for her
‘uncompromising courage and willpower’. The president also
felicitated Manuj Wadhwa, the Mohali-based surgeon, for successfully
operating upon Sood.
This just in. Seema Sood obtained the
money collected by BITSAA.
