For a married Odia woman, observing Sabitri Brata without her husband around is tough. And when her better half is battling for life, then it is excruciating. But these Sabitris have proved that when the going gets tough, the tough gets going. Mousumi Mohapatra & Pratibha Priyadarshini observed Sabitri Brata today.
Mousumi’s husband Abhishek Mohapatra & Pratibha’s husband Dibyaranjan Behera are critical COVID patients undergoing ECMO treatment. And amid the hardest test of their lives yet, both undeterred, observed Sabitri Brata today praying for the wellbeing and long lives of their husbands.
