Brief Answer:
keep trying

Detailed Answer:


I am from Chennai.

If you see the net. Or. Go to any big hospital them may give you the contact number of councillors.

Nimhans also may help.

I can understand your situation but a similar experience with one of my relatives where the mother sitting with her son herself and not leaving him in the hostel,

and taking personal intervention helped .!!!

It is a mental torture for parents but pl keep trying !

Good luck

Dr Uma
