The birth of a deity is always fascinating to watch. Suddenly, what was neglected till now develops magical powers or gradually gets attributed unnatural superpowers; a fascinating sight indeed!
The Medical College at Thiruvananthapuram always was the last hope for many for various problems. The facilities hitherto unavailable in other district hospitals; as well as senior and expert doctors were the reasons for this. Whenever there was no hope of recovery or a serious accident, Medical College was the last hope for people in the nearby districts. But now a statue is fast gaining ‘devi’ status at Medical College.
Just after the Casuality on the way to S.A.T Hospital sits a big statue of a mother with a child on her lap. It was built by Aryanad Rajendran more than 30 years ago as a decorative piece. The statue is in the middle of a roundabout where different roads take you to Regional Cancer Centre, S.A.T and Nursing College. The statue always gained a second gaze as it was situated in a prime position. It was an indication of motherhood as S.A.T Hospital was located nearby.
