    RIP!! The concerned doctor should have recommended her for advanced treatment if the high temperature was not going down for more than three days!

    It feel so sad to hear this ,second ,how our village doctor neglected to treat this child with high fever for a week at home ,without advising parents to take to hospital and see the cause.Nowadays everything new diseases are arising.I am sure she must have had some infectious case like meningities ?.Whatever it is can be only diagnosed in hospital.When not treated at right time it is late.Poor child.Heartfelt sympathies to the family.Hope they did the post martum to see what it is so that other children dont get infected with it .May her soul rest with angels.With a school holiday is not done .findout more about it.

    If a child dies nobody can comfort parents.and it takes months and years to come out from that trauma. Only God can comfort through his words Children are god's gift to parents only God give them to take care. But remember children are god's property. He has got full authority and whenever he wants he plucks. We must bow our heads in front of Him. You must have visited brindavan garden in Mysore there you will see don't pluck flowers. On the other side you will see the gardener only plucks.he has got the right. In the same way God is our owner..RIP child.

    RIP angel While reading this one of my friends asked me.why god is doing like this? there are many aged people why he need this little one? Actually I didn't give him the answer.God gave me the answer. I read for him.a passage from the book of Isiaha 55:8 Almighty God says.My ways are not your ways and your ways are not my ways And god also looking from above when his garden need a beautiful flower.when he finds a suitable one he puts his arms around and whisper when there is no cure,my child enough I want you to be in my garden, where there is no sorrow no pain. And he concludes I have a plan for you.isaiah 49 I
