"There will be ups and downs and God knows that this person can bear the pain and will come out winning. I did come out stronger. Then Tara was born as a premature baby. That time also I broke once when she was not leaving the ventilator, but otherwise, I was very positive I thought she will be better soon. This is her part where she has to be in the NICU. She is in good hands getting the best treatment and we have done no wrong so nothing wrong will happen with us.”
