Kochi: West Bengal Governor CV Ananda Bose shared an emotional moment at the seventh edition of Manorama News Kerala Can Livathon, as he remembered his daughter Nandita Bose who had died of cancer. He said that Nandita was a symbol of strength and courage. Ananda Bose added that she had bid adieu to this world after fighting cancer with all her might.

Ananda Bose presented the Nandita Bose Award which carries a cash reward of Rs 1 lakh to singer and cancer survivor SS Avani. The book written by Nandita too was launched at the event. Ananda Bose recalled that confidence and unfaltering faith in God had helped Nandita battle cancer.

“Nandita had been living in Germany with her family. She was married to a foreign service officer who had been working as the consul general there. Meanwhile, we constructed a house at Greater Noida in New Delhi. It was Nandita who gave all the instructions over the phone. However, she didn’t see that house. On the way to the airport, she felt unbearable pain in her legs. She called her mother and told her about the pain. Even though she had painkillers, it didn’t help. She returned to the hospital.

She was soon diagnosed with cancer. I and my wife travelled to Germany to take care of her. She got excellent treatment there. Even though she returned home after the initial treatment, she had to go back to the hospital after a few days. They said that there was nothing more to be done. She then went to the US for curative treatment. Usually, it is difficult to find a slot for treatment. We prayed to Chakkulathukavamma and got a chance for treatment.

The treatment would cost two million dollars. However, it was free as my son-in-law was a diplomat. There were other technical issues too. But, we were able to overcome everything. The expenses of the treatment were borne by the central government. She relapsed after some time. Nandita bid adieu to this world leaving her son Akku alone. Our new house in Noida still awaits its owner,” said a teary-eyed Ananda Bose.
