In a bizarre incident two girls were found deserted allegedly by their father at Tirumala on Friday.

The TTD’s vigilance and security personnel who found the girls in poor health and wailing inconsolably at Sudarshan choultry, in the vicinity of the APSRTC bus stand, immediately rushed them to the Aswini Hospital for treatment.

The girls were identified as Deepa (8) and Lakshmi (5). The little girls, given their tender age, could not even properly give details of their residential address. All that they could articulate was that they hailed from Chintapalli village in Karnataka.

However, the girls who spoke in Kannada, revealed the names of their parents as Ramesh and Suma. They further said that they had come to the place along with her father on Thursday and that their youngest sister and mother were at home. The authorities were trying to gather further information from the sobbing girls to establish their identity.

Ordeal ends for the abandoned minor girlsNovember 25, 2012

What a tragedy. He was probably a farmer or someone with no way to feed his
children after the drought this year...

Is there a place to send money for these kids and the family?

After reading such articles, I get disturbed very badly. I can feel the pain of these two little girls seeing through their eyes. It's ashamed to be called as a father for such persons, who has a stone heart to abandon his little girls. It's very much disturbing to read that people like this person still exist among us. Atleast Government bodies or NGO's should take care of such kids and should never return the kids to such parents. Who knows after returning back to them they will never make such attempts again through other means.

I am apalled at the incident where two small childern were left at the Sudarshan choultry abandoned by their father. I am sure poverty was the main factor for this incident. As we all Hindus believe that Lord Venkateshwara brought the attention to the authorities before any untoward would have happened to the childern. I hope the childern would be reunited with their parents.

Dear Sir, I know how hard it will be for parents to do this, however, I and my wife are willing to support the upbringing of these two beautiful kids. Please could you help us to bring the name and address of the parents, so we can send them the money every month.

Terrible! I assume if the version told by the children is true, the
parents must be in their early 30s and hence this is the failure of the
education and the health dept not to have taught them about sex,
conceiving and the various reasons for repeatedly having girls born into
the family. Most probably that could have been the reason for abandoning
these female children by the father. Please make an intense propaganda
all over India that determining the sex of the baby depends on father
only to all the parents.
