of a father
Narayana Pothuval of Chambrakanam kept a diary to write down his
futile attempts to bring back his dying son to life. But Prathap,
the youngest of his three children, had to die an untimely death
after a prolonged fight with heart disease.
his death in 2002, we were not able to identify that the whole
sufferings were due to Endosulfan poisoning. "Now I am a lung
cancer patient. I have never smoked nor consumed liquor. Doctors
have confirmed that it is due to chemical poisoning via food".
Pothuval stopped abruptly.
my son, you are dearer than my soul. And I gifted you death as a
message of happiness for you". He had concluded his diary with
this message. In fact, it is a quotation by Bah'u'llh, who was the
founder of the Bah' Faith.
