The baby was properly dressed, with a diaper on, and a letter was also found in its dress. Written on a piece of paper in red ink, the letter, in clear Tamil, begins with an apology and goes on to say that its ‘parent’ could not take care of the child for want of money. “I’m struggling to feed myself daily. Please take care of my child... Kindly inform the priest in the nearby church to keep the child safe. Give it to some childless couple and forgive me,” says the letter, with no reference to who wrote it.
