That there are miracles.
The girl who was critical after she took terrorist’s bullets on 26/11 at a birthday celebration at the Taj.
The girl who fought for her life.
A friend of a friend. So often one prayed, whatever may be best for her must happen.
Stunned. Yes, a miracle.

whoa. chills. what a strong woman! her miraculous physical recovery is a wonderful thing to read about. it is agonizing to think of the rest of her reality though. trying to heal once she leaves the hospital and her family is gone. she'll need all of that strength and then some.

incredible strength. Amazing the power of prayer and support. Although sad in the same breath, so strong but left alone.

May her strong will carry her through the dark days, please.

Amazing,isn't it?Faith can move mountains-my faith in such quotes gets reinforced when I read about such people.
But,whew-hospital expenses of Rs. 40 lakhs? Thank God for the Ratan Tata charitable trust.

Miracula ...
It is very good to see that woman be alive. It is very sad to learn about her loss and I really hope that what is left from her family can help her to survive all this.
As a historian I (maybe cynically?) always sooner or later ask about the function of the particular miraculum or wonder.

Excuse me please, I may be a little ... seltsam ...

Milli. I am touched. Thank you. But is she not there, a star in the sky, the first light as a whimsy rainshower?


mago- miraculum...maybe the purpose will be person specific, different meaning for you and for I? da, herr historian?

amit- there were so many times so many times when she was like - gone and then this fight back, grabbing breath back from the jaws of death..reads too dramatic, right?

crusty- peace and prayers and amazing community- friend circle support. she belongs to a group where you're more than family.

portia- such will. such support. someone by her side all these days. she will be fine.The Gods will it.

sathyabhai- yep. The satin blanket and all the stars.

Arunima said...

it was sheer will power I guess. Sad about the rest of the family.

mago said...

(we wrote the texts inside the objects and they deal all with the miracle in one way or another)

San said...

Gosh, happy that she survived yet sad by her loss.

austere said...

San- haan. teaches us something about the human spirit to survive , no?

mago- saw. wanted to know more. was this for an art show?

arunima- yes. maybe God has something else ordained for her.

mago said...

I'll email you tomorrow, after sleep.
