Abhijit Manwar

Featured, Tribute

My heart aches as I write this tribute to my beloved elder brother, Abhijit. He was a strong pillar in my life, always guiding me with his wisdom and kindness. His untimely departure on 21st March 2024 has left a void that can never be filled.

Abhijit’s journey began with a desire to lead a healthier lifestyle through dieting. However, little did we know that this decision would have devastating consequences. His weight loss was accompanied by a weakening of his immune system, resulting in excruciating pain in his legs. Despite numerous treatments and medications, his condition only worsened, leading to a necessary operation.

After the surgery, we thought he was on the path to recovery. He resumed his normal activities, and we were filled with hope. However, that hope was short-lived. A month later, he began experiencing coughing fits, chills, and dry skin. Countless doctors and hospitals failed to diagnose his condition, attributing it to tuberculosis and prescribing strong medications that further weakened his immune system.

It was on 4th March that Abhijit reached out to me, pleading for my presence. I rushed home, only to find him in a state worse than I could have imagined. Intuitively, I advised him to stop taking the tuberculosis medication, believing there was a misdiagnosis. Miraculously, he showed signs of improvement upon discontinuing the tablets.

On 12th March, against all odds, Abhijit insisted on undergoing tests at a hospital in Hyderabad. He was admitted and monitored closely, but his health continued to deteriorate. Despite the best efforts of the medical team, he suffered a septic shock attack on 21st March, ultimately succumbing to it.

The grief of losing Abhijit has weighed heavily on our family. The sight of our village, mourning his loss, is a poignant reminder of the impact he had on everyone’s lives. I will forever cherish the memories of my elder brother, a man of strength, resilience, and unwavering support.

Farewell, dear Abhijit. May you find peace in the heavens above, knowing that your memory will forever live on in our hearts.
