Pictures of Niharika Das of Assam carrying Corona positive father-in-law on her back are going viral on social media. This picture of Niharika Das has shown her service spirit on one side and helplessness has also been exposed on the other side. When the father-in-law was infected with Corona and no one came forward to help, Niharika Das carried him on his back and carried him to the autorickshaw, in which he was about to go to the hospital. Regarding this helplessness, Niharika Das says that I hope that no one has to go through such a situation in future. The father-in-law of Niharika, from the Raha area of Nagaon, Assam, works as a betel-nut sell.
Niharika told that on June 2, symptoms of corona started showing in her. After this Niharika somehow arranged for an auto rickshaw and took the 75-year-old father-in-law to the hospital. In a conversation with The Indian Express, Niharika said, ‘My father-in-law was feeling very weak and could not even stand. My husband was in Siliguri for work. So I had no choice but to carry them on my back. The reason for this was also that our street was narrow and due to this the auto could not come. In such a situation, I reached there with father-in-law.
In an amazing display of women-power today, Niharika Das, a young woman from Raha, carried her COVID positive father-in-law, Thuleshwar Das, on her back while taking him to the hospital. However, she too tested positive later.

However, Niharika Das’s troubles did not end here. On being taken to a nearby hospital, doctors said that they would have to take their father-in-law to the Kovid hospital, located 21 km away, as his condition was critical. Niharika, mother of 6-year-old son said that after this we had to call another car. There was no ambulance, stretcher arrangement there. In such a situation, once again I had to carry my father-in-law on my back and take him to the car. Niharika said that her father-in-law Tuleshwar Das was in a kind of unconscious state. Due to this, he had to struggle a lot physically and mentally.
