India is fighting a tough battle with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The country is daily reporting over four lakh positive coronavirus cases while thousands are losing their lives. Many people have lost their loved ones to Covid-19 and that has left them completely shattered.
One among them is India’s women cricket team player. Veda’s family has been hit hard by the deadly virus as over the past few months she has lost both her mother and sister. Veda’s mother left her on April 23 and her sister Vatsala Shivakumar, who was admitted to a hospital in Chikmagalur, Karnataka, breathed her last only two weeks later.
Veda is a senior player in India’s National Women Cricket team and thus far has featured in 48 One Day Internationals and 76 T20 Internationals scoring 829 and 875 runs respectively. As the 28-year-old is coping up with two major personal losses, she took to her official Twitter handle to bid an emotional adieu to her mother and sister.
In a heartfelt note dedicated to her mother and sister, Veda wrote that the last few days have been the toughest for her as both her mother and sister were her inspiration and always found their joy in her happiness. “To my beautiful Amma and Akka. The last few days have been very heartbreaking to all of us at home. You both for the foundation of our house never imagined it would be seeing this day knowing that you both are not with me, it breaks my heart. Amma, you have made a brave child, taught me to be as practical as I can in every situation the trait is obviously passed on by you,” the 28-year-old wrote.
