Q.A) Write a summary of the story in your own words retelling the nurse’s struggle and how the problem was solved
This narrative is all about the sincere efforts of a nurse who worked in the Intensive Care Unit of the neurology ward of the hospital. She wanted to help those who lost their hope for living a healthy life again while suffering from severe neurological problems. Hira was a victim of a bus accident. Rahila, the nurse wanted to help that girl to recover as soon as possible.
It seemed quite difficult to others to bring her to a normal healthy life that’s why her colleagues and senior doctors cracked jokes on her and advised her to stop taking care of Hira and let her stay in such a miserable condition forever. She wanted to fight for her because she had a special sympathy for the patient. So she discussed the matter with the senior nurse but she said the doctor-in-charge want to shift the girl to the general ward as the chances of her recovery were low. Hira’s family made a request to her so she put all her efforts and was successful in keeping Hira in ICU.
She worked really hard on Hira’s exercises but she was not showing much progress. But one day Hira was able to raise her little finger and that showed a ray of hope to Rahila. Then Rahila was sent to Karachi for a three months’ training course. When she returned she saw Hira’s bed vacant. She was in a state of shock, then someone patted on her shoulder and that person was none other than Hira who was standing on crutches with a smile on her face. That was the moment of intense relief for Rahila as her efforts and determination were fruitful in bringing Hira to her normal life.
