HYDERABAD: Rafia Sultana is mighty happy that her nine-year-old daughter Nabira Fatima is alive and kicking. “The holy month of Ramzan has been kind. It has given a new life to my daughter. It’s a gift to us from the almighty,” Rafia says, recalling the horrific bus-train accident at Masaipet in Medak district on July 24.

Though she is out of danger, Nabira has been kept under observation at Yashoda Hospital. For, Nabira is yet to recover from the trauma of the frightful accident that fateful day. “I still remember last year’s Eid. Nabira was so happy and playing with her little sister,” recalled Rafia.

“We have been waiting to celebrate Eid and it is unfortunate that we are celebrating the festival in the hospital,” Rafia said. “But god has been kind. My daughter is lucky to have survived the tragedy,” she  says in earnest. She says her prayers were with all the families who have lost their kids.

Asked about Kakatiya Techno School where Nabira studies, Rafia said: “Personally I do not find any fault with the school.” She said the teaching methods are good and the school management is considerate. The school has been derecognised after the incident.

Nabira stays with her maternal grandmother at Toopran as she is more attached to her. Rafia along with her husband and younger daughter live in Padalapally village. Though she seems a little rattled, Nabira makes gestures and acknowledges people. Raifa says Nabira had undergone a surgery eight months ago and has not recovered fully.
