Blind faith: Parents perform puja to revive dead baby
Ganjam: Blind faith continues to grip Odisha villages with a couple today performing puja to revive their two and half years’ old dead baby. The incident was reported from Sundarpur village under Chhatrapur block of Ganjam district.
Sachidanand Sahu and his family performed puja by keeping their dead baby inside the hollow groove of a mango tree.
The child died while undergoing treatment at Cuttack SCB and his family members took him to carry out his last rites. But then they said they spotted the baby’s hand shaking during the rituals at the cremation ground. So, they tried to bring him back to life.
“Since there have been many incidents earlier when children were revived after death, we also believe that God will help us. We will keep the dead body for three days and see,” Bhagirathi Sahu, grandfather of the baby said.
