Raj Bauri (1 year old) is the only child of Nityananda Bauri and Kusum Bauri. They live in a village near Katwa town of West Bengal. He was born with cleft lip and his parents were very sad to see their only child born with this deformity.
The neighbors and the relatives blamed Kusum for her negligence during pregnancy for Raj’s condition. Her relatives believe that pregnant woman should lie straight on bed without bending her hands and legs during the period of eclipse then the child in her womb does not get affected due to the transition of earth and moon. Nurses and other staffs from local hospital could not give any logical reason about the cleft deformity to the distressed mother.
Amidst all the tensions, Kusum was sent to her maternal home in Kalna. Bishu Malo, her neighbor informed her about Mission Smile’s free surgeries for Cleft Lip and Cleft Palate. The fact is that Bishu’s 3 year old toddler had gone through palate surgery at the Mission Smile Outreach Centre. This toddler’s successful surgery motivated Kusum to bring Raj in NH Hospital, Barasat.
The family reached the Outreach Centre for Raj’s medical examination after 6 hours of journey. Raj was medically examined on 25th February, 2016 and was found fit for surgery. Raj’s surgery was successfully conducted by Mission Smile team. Kusum cried in joy on seeing her child with his lips corrected. They went back to their village next day and Kusum now has fitting reply to all those who said her child was cursed.
