Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has described his February 13th meeting with Azimio Movement leader Raila Odinga as an emotional and interesting one, where the two leaders discussed among other things the former prime minister’s daughter’s recovery after losing her sight in 2017.
In an interview posted on his official Twitter handle, the Indian Prime Minister detailed his conversation with Mr. Odinga who was in the country for almost ten days from February 13th.
”Few days back I met my friend and former prime minister of Kenya Raila Odinga. The meeting was interesting and emotional as well. We are good friends and we speak frankly on many issues. When we were talking, Mr. Odinga told me about his daughter. His daughter suffered from brain tumor and due to this she had to undergo surgery. But it caused side effects and Rosemary’s vision became poor.In a way she lost her vision,” the Indian PM said.
”Now you can imagine what would have been of her and her father’s situation. He tried in hospitals across the world and there was no country left where he had not tried the treatment of his daughter. He looked for options in several countries but did not succeed and in a way gave up all hope. And there was gloom in the family. Meanwhile, someone suggested to him to come to India for the Ayurveda treatment. He had tried everything and got tired, still, he thought let’s try once more,” he added.
”He came to India, started treatment of his daughter in Ayurvedic hospital in Kerala. Daughter stayed here for long. Due to ayurvedic treatment, Rosemary’s vision recovered to a great extent. You can imagine not only Rosemary got a new life with return of her vision, but the entire family got a new ray of hope. A new life. Odinga emotionally told me the science of Ayurveda should be brought to Kenya. The kinds of plants used in Ayurveda would be grown in Kenya and he would try that its benefits reach to a maximum number of people,” PM Modi said.
On February 13th, Raila while on his trip met the Indian leader where the two discussed issues of mutual interest between Kenya and India. His daughter, Rosemary Odingalost her vision in 2017 and has been getting treatment at Sreedhareeyam Ayurvedic Eyecare Hospital in Kerala, India. She has fully regained sight.
