Terminally ill boy’s wish fulfilled
Ten-year-old Sadiq wanted to be Police Commissioner for a day and his wish was fulfilled by the Hyderabad Police Commissioner Mahendar Reddy on Wednesday. Clad in khaki with a cap, the terminally ill boy occupied the chair of the Police Commissioner while Mahendar Reddy and other officers saluted him.
The boy hailing from Karimnagar district of Telangana was inspired by some of his relatives working in the police department and aspired to become the Police Chief.
Sadiq's wish was fulfilled, thanks to the efforts of ‘Make A Wish Foundation’, a voluntary organisation working to fulfil the wishes of children with life threatening illness.
"I want to catch rowdies," said the boy when asked what he would do as Police Commissioner.
Mahendar Reddy said that he was feeling happy to fulfil the boy's wish. Pushpa Devi Jain from the foundation said that by fulfilling the wishes of children with life threatening medical condition, they were trying to give them happiness which could help in extending their lifespan.
She said that the foundation helped in fulfilling the wishes of many such children. Some children want to meet celebrities and leaders.
In August, Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao fulfilled the wish of a boy by meeting him at a city hospital.
Pushpa appealed to popular Telugu film actor Pawan Kalyan to fulfil the wish of a girl in Khammam district of Telangana. Suffering from brain tumour, the girl wishes to meet the star.
