Seema Sood, an Engineering Technology and MTech Info Systems gold medalist from BITS-Pilani graduated from
the college in 1991. But Seema has been bed ridden for over 13 years
now, due to an extreme case of rheumatism,
and recently appealed to the President for mercy killing.
Many people took note of this including BITSAA which launched an
initiative to collect funds on the behalf of BITS-Pilani to support
the multiple joint replacement surgeries should required. After the
initial mail sent out on June 22nd 2008, BITSAA managed
to meet the set targets quickly and Seema was subsequently
successfully operated on. By this time, more of her scheduled
surgeries would have hopefully been successfully executed.
looks forward now to life with a new zest and she literally would
soon have a spring in her step! J From all BITSians the world over, here is wishing Seema the best of
luck in a new and bright chapter of her life.
