2014-02-04: Vishesh gave birth in the early morning to her second baby. She went into labor around 3rd clock in the morning and 4:08 pm the baby came into the world.

2014-02-06: Given that the situation has not changed in yesterday afternoon, and the baby does not accept milk from mothers and caregivers could not even feed them from a bottle through the barrier, we finally decided to join a very risky step - to separate the young female from the mother.
