Railway employees, particularly a Travelling Ticket Inspector (TTI), took care of a pregnant woman who went into labour in Bokaro Express. She delivered a male baby and the mother and baby are doing well.

The woman, Anjali of Jamshedpur, who was travelling alone, developed labour pains at around 8.15 p.m. on Monday and the ticket collector helped the passenger disembark in Vijayawada station.

On being informed the Railway Hospital doctor attended to the patient and recommended that she be shifted to Government General Hospital (GGH).

The TTI V.H. Edward who was on duty accompanied her to the GGH in a 108 ambulance where she delivered a male baby.

After gathering her details with the help of a translator, the TTIs and other employees collected some money and arranged her journey back home.

Divisional Railway Manager (DRM) Pradeep Kumar and other officers complimented the staff who helped the woman.

As there was no gynaecologist available in Railway Hospital at that time, the patient was shifted to GGH, the DRM clarified.

When the passengers brought to the notice of the officials over non-availability of stretchers on the platforms in emergency, the DRM said that instructions were given to the staff to arrange stretchers on Platform Nos. 1, 5 and 6 round-the-clock in the station.

Mr. V.H. Edward, You have simply made me proud; and have contributed to
make the world a place better than even imaginary heaven. You have
really done a great service to humanity. This is what I would like to
call a religion.

Such stories makes us proud to be human. In a growing world of insensitivity such acts of generousity compels us to look at the world in a positive light. May such gestures be appreciated and acknowledge. The Hindu should continue to carry such stories of human endeavour to create and inspire awareness.
