Ajimon is suffering with liver stone and infection in small intestine from 2002. He is almost bedridden for last 2 years. A bag is connected to his body to collect waste. He has to undergo a surgery immediately to implant a stent to stop the leak in his bile duct.

He was working as a painter until he was sick. His wife used to work in a bakery. She lost her job as she is unable to go to work regularly because of Ajimon’s sickness. The only bread winner in the family is Ajimon’s father who sells lottery. Ajimon has two children; his daugher just completed 10th standard and his son is studying in 7th.
