In 2011, Praveen David’s daughter rescued a paralysed baby squirrel, which the family nursed and sheltered. Praveen designed a prosthesis for the animal to allow it to move and prevent it from biting its legs. Named Asterika, she was inseparable from Praveen’s little girl until she passed away just a couple of weeks ago.
In Praveen’s own words, ‘Asterika was a furry bundle of joy on wheels. We thank God for bringing her into our lives and we cherish the memories of the three long years we could spend with her.’ Credit: Praveen David
