Friends, this is what I experienced on Saturday evening at about 8 PM. While walking on a pavement along side a road in Sector 44- Chandigarh, I suddenly stumbled and fell down. Bleeding started from my fore-head and upper portion of the nose. A fruit vender, whose rehri was parked near the foot path, and a Traffic Constable were standing nearby. They lifted me and made me stand. It was a pleasant surprise for me that the fruit vendor cleansed my wounds and applied betadine on the wounds, so as to stop bleeding, and he succeeded also to some extent. I then requested the Traffic Constable to give me lift on his motor-cycle up to a doctor’s clinic, which was just about two hundred meters away . He did not accommodate me. Resultantly, I again walked on the foot path and reached doctor’s clinic.
The doctor applied 8 stitches , 3 on forehead, and 5 on the nose. He advised me a week’s rest. Accordingly, I am not attending Court cases. Not possible to wear spectacles, until injuries on the nose get healed up. And I cannot read any thin unless I wear spectacles. Moreover, wounds will take a few days for healing.
Any way, a fruit vendor gave me a smile, whereas the Policeman gave me a surprise. On inquiry yesterday, the Fruit Vendor told me that he keeps the first aid box with him always, as he has been seeing so many accidents on the roads. He is really an angel !
