  1. hey, prayer's for your friend. Hope he recovers.

    Can't you do a similar 30 on 30 kinda thing for him?

    I can donate any of my pictures if you think you want to do something similar and you want others clicks.

    All the best to both of you.


  2. I am in the middle of completing 30on30 activities Tanu, otherwise would have really loved to work on something similar.

    Really do not have the bandwidth to manage two projects.

    I don't know this guy, or the blogger who has the post, but I feel that it is a cause that anyone should participate in, irrespective of knowing the people involved or not.

  3. Nice blog& presentation. Keep it up and write more. I voted for your blog and suggested to my fnds also. I hope you are so kind to vote for my blog also. This is my voting link

  4. Dear Prasant, Nice title you have,,, I voted for u now. This is my voting link

  5. Dear Prashant..Thank you very much for hosting Rekha's Post. I appreciate it.

    @Tanu: Thank you for offering photographs. I am truly humbled.

    Johnny is my childhood friend.. I will do whatever it takes to help his family.

    Can you please advice me any ways that we can arrange for some decent money for my friend Johnny.

    I feel you should have read the post and see the sensitivity of it before posting a voting link on it !

    thanks for you kind words, however I am not interested in any blogger awards !

    @ Adarsh
    I hope I can do something to help..

    What Tanu is talking about is this project :

    www.30on30.net where I raised funds for a NGO project based out of Moradabad, UP by selling 30 of my photographs online. that project takes up a lot of my time, and I would not be able to work on another similar project for a while.

    However if you can build a similar model, I would be more than happy to contribute my photographs to it, and also bring in a few close friends with their work!

    Let me know if this works for you !

  7. this was the same guy i was talking about for whom I contributed, I hope more ppl contribute.

  8. @ Om, Yah I understand.. I just came to check how he was doing.. hope he is doing better..

    @Adarsh - write to me as well. I will be more than happy to donate my pic's for the same. If you guys can come up with a similar model as 30on30, am sure it will fetch some help..

    all the best and do not hesitate to get in touch if you go on the 30on30 path..

  9. @ Anjuli
    yea I figured. I hope so too

    @ Tanu
    I hope so !!! Have not seen any updates though !

  10. Dear Friends,

    I have been busy, arranging money in all possible ways i could.. I was actually trying to meet some politicians, IAS officers (in ministry of health), talk to CEO;s of various companies that i worked for to arrange some money.

    Signs look positive however no one has confirmed any thing at the moment.

    Please accept my apologies for not being able to update you all.

    Current updates on our friend Johnny are as under:
    We received monetary help in the form of Rs. One Lakh Fifty Thousand.
    My heartfelt gratitude to Deepak Nichani and Mohit Undevia, who co-ordinated the collective effort.
    Also, Nigel Soans and Sarina Lotilikar.

    My personal thanks to everyone at Barclays Bank (UAE) for contributing.

    4th May.
    Thanks to a great response we have managed to cover hospital and medical expenses till date. However we have been faced with a decision to move Navin to a less expensive hospital or a government hospital as the hospital he is currently at is turning out to be quite expensive. Navin has a fluctuating fever but is deemed stable enough to be moved and we will decide to move him to another hospital or not in the next couple of days.
    Moving him to a government hospital will also (hopefully) attract the attention of some trusts.

    1st May - Maharashtra Day/ May day
    Fever is back. Navin is getting treated with iced water.
    30th April - election day
    Fever has come down. Off the ventilator, Breathing on his own. These are positive signs.

    28th April 09
    Having fever, risk of infection. Doctors doing all they can to reduce the fever.
    Hospital has contacted us to clear its dues immediately. We may have to move Navin to a Government Hospital.

    24th April, 09
    Minimal right pupil movements under voluntary control of the brain.
    Third surgery performed on 18/04/09, right skull cap removed. Next update from doctors on 20/04/09

  11. I am glad things are moving in the right direction !!!

    I really hope he feels better soon !!! God bless !
