Grab The Tissues, This Girl With The Swollen Head Will Make You Weep!

When a photographer named Arindam Deywas went into a village named Tripura in northeast India, she was immensely shocked to find a baby having a head thrice the size of an average infant. The name of the child was Roona Begum, and Deywas tried to know the family while she took some pictures of them. Roona was born with hydrocephalus which resulted in water build-up in her head. 

The local doctors advised her father to take her a private hospital but being poor; he could just not afford it. So, all he could do was to wait for a miracle to happen.
