A month ago, rickshaw puller Babloo's wife died after childbirth due to anaemia. It left Babloo all alone with a small infant to take care for. With no close relatives on hand, Babloo decided to take his small daughter with him to work.
"She was born on September 15. Five days later her mother died. Since then I have been taking care of her all by myself. I can't leave her at home because nobody is there to take care of her, so I've been taking her with me to work every day," said Babloo.
"When she grows up, I will send her to school. I don't want her to grow up on the streets. I want proper upbringing for her," said the ambitious father.
But for a state like Rajasthan, which has among the lowest sex ratios in the country and incidents of families abandoning baby girls is high, Babloo is indeed a shining example of paternal love.
