The process of registration was completed. He was about to occupy the bed. He suddenly heard a cry from
a woman whose 40-year-old husband was suffering from COVID-19. She was sitting with him begging for one bed.
Unfortunately, Hospital administration was not able to allot him the same. Dabhadkar saw that and tears rolled down his cheeks. He immediately went near the woman and offered her husband his bed, the registration of which Dabhadkar just had completed.
Dabhadkar told the medical staff, who was assisting him, “I am now 85 years old. I have lived my life. I don’t need treatment. Allot my bed to this needy man and
Dabhadkar’s relatives tried to persuade him. The doctor also told him that your life was important. His daughter tried to convince him. However, Narayanrao insisted on his decision. Eventually, his
bed was alloted to crying woman’s husband. The lifelong philanthropist, Dabhadkar died three days after this incident. ‘Chocolate Uncle’ has set an example by his decision.
