Rajasthan rickshaw puller's newborn daughter strapped to his chest

Rickshaw puller Babloo's wife died a month ago 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.

In response to a story posted on on October 19, NDTV viewers and website's users have electronically transferred more than Rs. 9 lakhs to her father's account.

The Rajasthan government has offered to cover all her medical expenses. Baby Damini  was admitted to a private hospital, Fortis, in Jaipur. She is severely malnourished, weighing just 1.4 kilos, and has been diagnosed with blood infection.

Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot said, "Her father is a rickshaw puller, so we will look after him.  It's a very sensitive case.  First, we want the baby to survive and recover. "
