Mita’s Story

Fazlul Haque was a poor farmer. He had a small piece of land and earned his livelihood by cultivating on that land.

His only child is his daughter Mita, who was born with a congenital defect on his lip medically called ” Cleft lip” or incised lip. The defect gave her an ugly look. Even her friends from the same neighborhood were reluctant to play with her because of her ugly appearance.

Once one of Fazlul Haque,s neighbors told him that such defect can be cured through surgery in Dhaka and advised him to go to Dhaka for better treatment. Fazlul made up his mind and went to Dhaka along with his daughter Mita. He saw a doctor at a private clinic. The doctor told him that it can be cured through surgery and it would cost him TK/- 15000. Upon hearing the huge cost of surgery he became disappointed and returned home in despair. He was at the end of tethers with no reckon of life. Since then Fazlul Haque was passing his days with a ray of hope.

One day he came to know from a medicine shop owner that there is a boat hospital somewhere where they are correcting this type of defect in gratis. He collected the mobile number of the boat hospital named Jibon-Tari from a person in his neighborhood whose son had club foot surgery on that boat hospital. He got the location of Jibon-Tari, which was located at Chamrarghat of Kisoregonj district. Fazlul haque became upset again because it is so far, almost 500 kilometers from the place where he lived. Determined to try again fir his daughter, one morning he started his journey with his daughter for Chamrarghat. He arrived at Chamrarghat next day early morning. He collected a yellow ticket by standing up in a long queue and saw the doctor. The on duty doctor of JT examined Mita and informed her father that she could be cured through surgery, which would cost him only Tk.500. His joy knew no bounds. After some tests he was given a date to come again. The surgery was performed and stitches were removed after a week. Fazlul Haque was overjoyed when he saw the changed face of his beloved daughter. His daughter Mita turned a new life, the previous ugliness had disappeared. A large drop of tears rolls downs his cheeks. He raised his both hands and prayed to the God:” May these people find a place in the heaven.
