He takes his little angel to work because there is no-one available to look after her since his wife died shortly after giving birth. The day will come when his little angel will proudly say “My Father Is A Hero”.
Bablu Jatav has been carrying his  daugher, Damini, in a cloth sling around his neck since his wife Shanti died shortly after giving birth to her. The devoted dad, 34, says he is now forced to take the baby to work with him in Bharatpur city everyday because he has no other relatives to care for her.
In another cruel twist baby Damini was rushed to hospital in Jaipur city earlier this week after she became critically ill.
She was in intensive care after being admitted with septicaemia, anemia and severe dehydration. Luckily the newborn baby girl is now on the mend and said to be in a stable condition.
‘We had this baby after 15 years of our marriage, my wife was so happy when we were blessed with a daughter, but it is very sad that she passed away.’ Jatav has been overwhelmed by offers of help after his story emerged and it is believed the Indian authorities are now stepping in to help Jatav after hearing of his plight.
Several not-for-profit organizations in Rajasthan have reportedly offered to take care of Damini for at least two years and a job to Jatav. However, Jatav says that he wants to raise his child on his own and has refused the offer.
“I need nothing for me, but all for my daughter. I am illiterate but I want to send her to a good school. I also want to give message to people who abandon girl child that girls are not a burden but a blessing of God,” said Jatav.
