Dear Samridh

May the road rise up to meet you and I hope the collective prayers of this community helps your recovery. I myself have no doubt that you will get better soon, since you've an indomitable spirit and some of the finest of human values.

Your post (#47) is uplifting, and distils some of the aims of life and love itself. We all could do with ways to pause and take stock of our life's purpose and I thank you for sorting through the inevitable pain, anger and sorrow to get to your truths, helping us to gain our truths in the process.

I found a bit of my life in yours, and have determined to make some changes to the way I live mine. Thank you for helping me open my eyes.

You remain in my prayers.

Samridh,

Thanks for sharing this insightful event of your life. I would like to some day meet up and catch a picture with you and myself. When I get old, and someone asks me who this was, I would say here is myself with a 'real life hero'.

Samridh,

Here I am cribbing about all the things I want in life. Thank you for making me realise what I have.Wherever life takes you from now on, lean back in the knowledge that you have given me the true meaning to the word LIFE.

And I thought team-bhp helps me get to know only cars better.

First and foremost, a BIG applause to Mr. Mehta for doing the right thing. I only pray that we have more people like Mr. Mehta in this country. Mr. Mehta if you are reading this, wishing you the very best in life sir.

Next Samridh, your post (#47) was really touching and truly inspirational. Superbly written. Thanks for this.

From whatever I read today I am concluding that you are a strong man and will soon be back to normal. After having seen an incident in my family I can tell you that nothing will get you back to normal more than a strong will power. And I do think you have this in you. Stay happy mate.

Last but not the least, I was cursing when I read the incident about your watch being flicked. But then after having read through this entire thread I notice that you have not written a single curse for either this person or the Innova driver. Kudos man. You really are something. I admire your positive attitude.

Get well soon mate!

Samridh !! This is one of the finest posts that I have read in Team-BHP and saw this post only today.

As the Branch Head of an Insurance Company am always thinking what kind of message should we throw in when a Policy document is sent to an Insured. This post and entire posts on How wearing seat belt saved lives is a good starting point.

I hope by now you have recovered fully. Wish you all the best !!

Hello Samridh,

I am quoting you so that you get a notification of this post, but this post of yours (#47) has taught us a lot about life and the way to live it.

As more than 2 years have passed since the unfortunate incident, how are you now? I (& the whole T-bhp community) hope & wish that you have completely recovered from it.

I know that what you have went through all this time and I really hope and wish that you keep up your promise- posting your videos of cycling & dancing.

My best regards to you & your family,
Saket

Hats off to your endurance Samridh. It is at times like these we realise a lot of things which in routine we take for granted, are actually things we need a lot. One needs guts to make a complete recovery after a bone-shattering crash like that. Anyways, that is the past. If i have learnt something from you after reading your first hand account, it is that i must appreciate life, my friends and family. I will try my best to help anyone in an accident from now. Life as such is important. Wishing you all the best for a complete recovery.

Thanks a lot Samridh! This is indeed most beautiful posts that I have read and the above lines do sum it up perfectly!

I am glad that you have recovered and wish you a long happy life.

The post also sets me thinking about the neglect of safety features in our cars, we Indians would rather go for a swanky new music system but would not care to have airbags in our cars. Not that it is not changing though.
Even the OEM's are at fault too, they provide a plethora of new features as standard and have airbags / abs as optional only for top-end variant. If provided with an option, I would drop the factory fitted music system or body colored bumpers for airbags any given day!
Yes, the cost would go up surely but come to think of it, will it really?

Why only that, I work for Crash and Safety, I know how much work has gone by behind each safety feature, even a seat-belt can be such a lifesaver at times but my own family members don't make it a habit of wearing it by themselves! I almost always persuade them and make it point to not move the car unless seat-belts are worn.

Update time- with everyone's love and support I am doing absolutely fine. I am having a ball of a time; driving, riding, photographing, gyming etc.. In fact, I have managed to loose 9 odd kilos in the last 75 days and thought of thanking everyone here for their endless support. Just a photograph of the world as I see it today -

Dear Samridh, I am very happy to know that you are back in action and living life to the fullest. The post#47 of yours shook me up, and I would like to thank you for making many of us realize again what life is, how one should live and take it up. I will not make sure that I do the best possible help to any victim of a road accident. And needless to say I do feel happy about my life despite many things not as I want them to be.

Thanks again and wish you the best.
