She has been walking for hours her feet have started to bleed but the pain of labor is far more piercing than the bruises in her feet.
Santo was in her third trimester expecting the newborn to arrive any minute the lockdown made thousands of migrant workers go back to their native villages or towns Santo and Shambhu were one of those poor workers who were forced to leave the city to go home.
Santo and Shambhu were dragging themselves a long way by foot as there were no vehicles nor helping hands to console the struggling couple.
Santo was to give up as she started bleeding and blood seeping down her legs. Santo sat on the side of the road. While Shambhu was helpless afraid, confused, and crying for help. Santo screaming out screeching in pain, wailing for help with the tear of every muscle and the stabbing pain.
Suddenly a couple of women police came for help and with immediate effect placed Santo and Shambhu in a police van assisted them to the nearest hospital.
In a few hours, the wailing of the expectant mother Santo has replaced the cries of the newborn.
The lady policewomen congratulated the poor couple and helped them with some money and supplements and cheered in joy as they saw the beautiful twinkling eyes of the innocent infant, Laxmi aayi Hai.
