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.
