दिल्ली के लोकनायक अस्पताल में यह बच्ची ईलाज के लिए आई। प्लास्टर होना था। लेकिन बच्ची की जिद थी कि पहले गुड़िया का हो। डॉक्टरों ने उसकी बात मानी। गुड़िया का प्लास्टर हुआ। फिर बच्ची का।@AmarUjalaNews ने बहुत ही शानदार तस्वीर छापी है बाल सुलभता की। pic.twitter.com/EiSpSozzRu

Two-year-old Fareen had fractured her legs when she fell from the bed, two months ago. Her legs had to be put in a cast and hung as part of the treatment. However, due to the inconvenience, she would cry and refuse to drink milk. Dr Ajay at the Loknayak hospital who is treating Fareen found out that the toddler was attached to a doll. During play-acting, if the doll was given milk then Fareen would also drink milk.
Dr Ajay then plastered and hung the doll’s legs and this method worked allowing them to treat Fareen. Speaking to the media Dr Ajay said, “Fareen is taking her medication. The difference is that we have to act that we are also administered medicines to the doll.”
The two now lie together on the bed and Fareen and her doll are famous in the hospital. Fareen is expected to make a full recovery in another week.
