New Delhi:

A doctor’s Twitter thread describing a dying Covid patient’s son singing to her on a video call has gone viral on social media and has moved many to tears.

In a Twitter thread, Dipshikha Ghosh says she video-called the relatives of her patient Sanghamitra Chatterjee –“who is not going to make it” — and her son Soham Chatterjee asked her to spare a few more minutes. He then sang to his mother. He sang a popular Hindi movie song that, she says, will never be the same to her again. “Tera Mujhse Hai Pehle Ka Nata Koi…,” goes the song, which is from a film about a mother and son who were separated and found each other.’

Dr Ghosh said as she watched the man singing to his mother, nurses too came and stood in silence. The man broke down but finished the song, and there were few dry eyes in that ward. After asking the doctor about his mother’s vitals, he hung up. “This song is changed for us, for me at least. This song will always be theirs,” the doctor wrote.

The story has received an overwhelming response on social media, with most users saying they cried reading the story of a son’s final goodbye to his mother.

When a Twitter user appeared to congratulate the doctor for being able to capture the pain nicely in the Twitter thread, Dr Ghosh told him, “I did nothing. This shouldn’t happen to anyone.”

On her Twitter profile, Dr Ghosh says she practices critical care medicine. She has regularly asked people to follow COVID-appropriate behaviour and updates about her day at work. Mostly those updates sum up the pressure healthcare workers are handling currently across the country. Like this one:

India’s COVID-19 caseload hit 2.37 crore today with 3.62 lakh new infections in the last 24 hours. The death count has touched 2,58,317 with 4,120 people dying of the infection on Wednesday.
