MH370: Indian govt turns deaf ears to husband's plea


New Delhi, March 21: The intensive search operations for the missing MH 370 drown the cries of a man and his children of one of the passengers. Pune's Kranti Shirsath's destiny is unknown, but everyday is a battle for her family, a report published in the DNA said.

Kranti was travelling to meet her husband Prahlad-a social worker in a Malaysian NGO-when the plane went missing. Prahlad was likely to return to India with her in the first week of May.

While coping with Kranti's missing status, the family met with another disappointment, this time from the Indian government who are yet to respond to Prahlad's letter to the Prime Minister. "As soon as I came to Pune I had mailed a letter to Prime Minister of India explaining my family's condition and the present help and support that I got from Indian authorities," said Prahlad to the DNA. Kranti was a Chemistry lecturer herself.

He further added,"Over three days have passed but I have not received any acknowledgement from the PM's office. I had high hopes from them so had approached them. I have requested them to expedite the search operation. My wife is a mother of two children. We are depressed."

Her younger son Yashwant is inconsolable who still keeps on trying his mother's number and cries with disappointed everytime. "He asks our relatives too helplessly. I have sent him to our native place in Beed. We get the update on the airlines from the news channels and also people from the airline call us. I am in touch with other passengers' relatives too and check for updates with them," said Prahlad.

Disappointed himself at the entire search operation, he said,"I fail to understand that despite living in a world of technology, we are not able to trace the flight. What is the use of claiming ourselves to be so advanced."

The search operation for the missing MH370 has reached its 13th day. It went missing on Saturday with 239 passengers onboard.
