The Fall

On a dark and rainy night, a sweet n nice gal was driving home from her aunt's place on her sister's Scooty Pep. And then there was a wham, and she fell off her bike breaking her left arm in the process.

:-( Poor ol me is still in Chennai 'coz of that. My left hand is temperarily out of service for another month. :-( I never knew my left limb plays such a vital role in life. I almost feel like an invalid now! So much that I am able to sympathise and to an extent empathise with people without an arm or a leg.

I also realised that roads are filled with lots of good samaritans who take that extra effort to help people in distress. Many thanks to the guy who forced his mobile on me to call home and to the couple who drove me to the hospital and to the many others who helped me off the road and made me sit and so on. Sorry Mr Shankar, but now I find it harder to believe that scene from Anniyan, where no-one helps an accident victim.

Well the upside is that broadband internet is finally configured on our rickety ol system at home and since I am able to type reasonably well with just my right hand, I guess my blogging frequency should increase substantially! :-)

So long folks, will be back soon. And hope everyone had a good Diwali! :-)

Hi janani,

Jinguchakka said...

Oh! Take care and recover soon. Since you are already down and out, I ignore the "sweet'n'nice gal" thing! Self-promotion ..eh? And what for? ;-))



P.S: Wasn't there anything like the movies where the heroine would crash into the vehicle of the hero, and the next scene would be in the Alps?

janani said...

@totti - Yeah I guess you are right - people may react differently if there is any possibility of police etc. I just read Varna's post, it was worse than the scene in Anniyan!

@vv - Thanks! :-) So how are you doing?

@jinguchakka - Hmm there is no respect for truth these days! :-)
Unfortunately there was no hero involved in my story! :-(
