MUMBAI: For a change, a cricket scorer has ‘scored a ton’ in another field.
In a laudable initiative, a cricket scorer who works at the Bombay Hospital has managed to arrange Rs 50 lakh insurance amount for the family of a ward boy who used to work in its X-ray department before he expired last year due to Covid-19, under the Pradhan Mantri Garin Kalyan package scheme for healthcare workers fighting the deadly virus.
Dhananjay used to help technicians take X-Rays of covid patients, before passing away on May 27 last year at the age of 54 due to covid. Last week, On May 6, Jayashri Gogar, the wife of Dhananjay Laya Gogar, received an amount of Rs 50 lakh from New India Assurance via NEFT to her account, thanks largely due to the efforts of Deepak Joshi, a well-known BCCI and Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) cricket scorer who worked with him as a technician in the Bombay Hospital’s X-ray department.
“I worked with him in the X-ray department for four years. He was survived by his wife and a daughter, who studies in the ninth standard in school. Realising that they would need financial help on an urgent basis, and that can be done through the Prime Minister’s fund for healthcare workers, I approached New India assurance and the health ministry for details. They asked for some documents of the case, which I submitted with the help of the human resources and medical department of the Bombay Hospital. In March, I got a call and an email from the PM healthcare department, and last week, I got a call and an email from New India Assurance. Last Friday, they transferred Rs 50 lakh to his wife’s account in Bank of India (BOI), Wadala Branch,” Joshi told TOI on Saturday.
