Mangaluru: Thank you readers – Daijiworld’s appeal generates Rs 2.63 lac for Purushottama Poonja

Daijiworld Media Network – Mangaluru (DV)

Mangaluru, Mar 22: Daijiworld readers have always demonstrated their benevolent gesture and joined hands in helping the needy wholeheartedly whenever we have highlighted the dismal condition of people and families and the financial help they need to overcome their hard times. This time too, Daijiworld readers have risen to the occasion and helped a senior Yakshagana artist.

We, on February 26, had published an article about the senior Yakshagana artist, playwright, trainer and lead 'Bhagavatha' of Shree Durgaparameshwari Yakshagana Mandali, Kateel Mela, Purushottama Poonja being diagnosed with myelodysplasia with an excess of blasts with hypertension and diabetes mellitus.

For the last month, the , 67-year-old is being treated in an ICU of a private hospital in the city. As per doctors, specialized treatment will help Poonja. The family was in dire need of financial help for his treatment which will take place over the next six months and cost up to Rs 30 lac including hospital charges.

Poonja spent the majority of his life writing Yakshagana plays and teaching the art to aspiring students free of cost. As an artist, he did not gain much financially and therefore does not have any savings. Purushottama's family and relatives belong to an economically weak background and do not have the means to afford the specialised treatment.

After reading Pooja's plight, our readers have contributed Rs 2.63 lac to him for his treatment.

Daijiworld thanks to its esteemed readers for coming forward in helping and responding positively to the cause. We hope that our readers will continue to respond positively in our efforts to assuage the problems of the less privileged or those who are in dire need.
