This week’s big story was fan­tas­tic to say the least (‘Freed af­ter 20 years by son I had in prison’, July 12).

Just when one be­gins to gen­er­alise and be­lieve the young gen­er­a­tion th­ese days is grow­ing up to be very self-cen­tred, along comes a per­son like Kan­haiya who, at 19, is do­ing all he can to give his mother a de­cent life af­ter what she went through for two decades.

The way he fought for her re­lease from prison and is now try­ing to en­sure that he’s able to pro­vide for her in ev­ery way is com­mend­able.

He is a true hero.

FA­TIMA EBRAHIM, VIA EMAIL The big story this week was absolutely riv­et­ing. If it weren’t for pic­tures of the mother and son, their story would have read like a film script, it was so un­real.

What I re­ally loved about the ar­ti­cle was the fact that de­spite hav­ing an ex­tremely tough child­hood, the son is not a bit­ter per­son and does not hold any grudges against so­ci­ety.

He could have eas­ily be­come a crim­i­nal since he was born in prison and sur­rounded by in­mates. In­stead he is a hard-work­ing per­son try­ing to make an hon­est liv­ing and be­ing a re­spon­si­ble and loving son. There is so much to learn from him.

DEEPTI SURESH, VIA EMAIL I was touched by the big story in this week’s Fri­day. It was so heart-break­ing to read about a son who fought to free his mother from prison.

I sa­lute Vi­jai Ku­mari who, de­spite all of the dif­fi­cul­ties in prison, man­aged to raise her son Kan­haiya to be a re­spon­si­ble per­son. I also commend Kan­haiya for be­ing a good son and sav­ing money to bail out his mother. The re­spect and love he has for her is be­yond words.

Thank you Fri­day for bring­ing this touch­ing story to light.

JEMIL VIC­TO­RIA, VIA EMAIL The big story about Vi­jai Ku­mari and her son is an as­sur­ance of the strength of love and trust be­tween a par­ent and a child.

Bonded in their pain and love, Kan­haiya strug­gled to free his mother in­stead of bow­ing to fate. His de­ter­mi­na­tion re­sulted in suc­cess, prov­ing that where there’s a will, there’s a way.

More­over, the courage that Vi­jai showed in her de­ci­sion to fight back against the in­jus­tice she faced at the hands of her fam­ily is re­mark­able. Hav­ing gone through all this, she has not given up hope in the de­liv­er­ance of jus­tice. I hope that she suc­ceeds.
