Mangaluru, Jan 18, 2017: This is the sad story of Jayanti Baliga who passed away on the 8th inst.  (26-3-1936 to 8-1-2017) she saw her only son Vinayak Baliga an RTI activist die before her very eyes on 21-3-2016 hacked to death by a gang of killers allegedly set up by those who wanted to silence him for questioning irregularities in a number of institutions belonging to his own community.

Right from that day she had been depressed and was worried about the safety of other members of her family. As a lady born in an orthodox family she wanted her last rites to be performed by her only son. However, her eldest son in law had to perform that duty.Perhaps, these pressures have worked upon her health and she fell unconscious from a massive brain haemorrhage on the 7th inst and passed away without regaining consciousness again. However the grieving family even in the time of this shock remembered to donate her eyes so that at least two needy persons would be helped.

Now her daughter Anuradha has received a letter that both her corneas have been transplanted so that two people can regain sight. We salute the family who have done this great deed despite of their orthodox background and superstitious beliefs that if such is done, the deceased person will be born sightless in the next birth! We do hope that her wish to see the murderers of son punished by the due process of law be fulfilled through the sight of those who have received these transplants.

Hats off to this family, for helping the needy even in times of great grief of bereavement.

We salute the family who have done this great deed despite of their orthodox background and superstitious beliefs that if such is done, the deceased person will be born sightless in the next birth. Our life on this earth is a gift from him and our living should be helpful. Nobody is so accurate about life after death. The 2 person who have been donated will always be thankful to the family for this as they are able to see the beautiful world through her eyes.

Very few people on earth are born to help . But great sacrifice by the family . The accused in Baliga’s murder will surely get for what they have done. Vinayak Baliga was the only son and he was hacked to death by miscreants. His mother was totally shattered and died due to depression .
