As India fights the second wave of COVID-19, many healthcare workers have taken to social media to share their nightmares.

A doctor shared a story of a dying patient’s son who wanted to speak to his mother one last time.

Dr. Dipshikha Ghosh wrote, “Today, towards the end of my shift, I video called the relatives of a patient who is not going to make it. We usually do that in my hospital if it’s something they want. This patient’s son asked for a few minutes of my time. He then sang a song for his dying mother.”

She continued in another tweet, “He sang Tera Mujhse Hai Pehle Ka Nata Koi. I just stood there holding the phone, looking at him looking at his mother, and singing. The nurses came over and stood in silence. He broke down in the middle but finished the verse. He asked her vitals, thanked me, and hung up.”

Ghosh further added, “Me and the nurses stood there. We shake our heads, our eyes moist. The nurses went back one by one to their allocated patients and attended to them or the alarms of vents/dialysis units. This song is changed for us, for me at least. This song will always be theirs.”
