The design of Auto is seriously flawed, it has a pointed nose which give a false impression to the Auto driver that he can squeeze in the Auto wherever he wants!
I hope Autos are banned & replaced with the likes of Nano etc.

Vennarbank, your father took that nasty injury gracefully, wishing him a speedy recovery!

Nkrishna, that was a very painful mishap, good that fingers could be restored, I guess you must be doing some physiotherapy exercises now.

Yep, I have completed the physiotherapy. But since there is a bone loss in the ring finer, It will take some time to recover back completely. Its already 7 months since the mishap, the bone growth is back on track, but on a slow pace.

Vennarbank, shocked to hear about the incident, wish your dad a speedy recovery.

Have you lodged a complaint with the police on this incident ? Do file an FIR, let the law take its course. The Autodriver should be reprimanded and brought to task. As far as reported it does seem that the auto driver was speeding unnecessarily.

Do file a report. The earlier the better.

Regards

There was a article in The Hindu today about a person whose seven severed fingers were reattached.

The Hindu : Tamil Nadu / Coimbatore News : 14-hour surgery to re-attach seven severed fingers

Vennarbank - Wishing your father a speedy recovery.

If M-800 is considered unworthy to run on the roads due to safety & pollution norms, how could this contraption be allowed to continue to torment the roads.

vennar, your dad has set a wonderful example for you. cheers to him for a speedy recovery.

Team,
Thanks for the wishes.

What stuck me was that the auto driver did not show the basic humanity in this case. Normally i do not see who is at fault. Once i searched entire sewage near my staying place in mumbai, when i heard one of the little boy fell into it and nobody dared to enter in. So i was basically at loss of words with such an act of indifference by the driver.


@nkrishnap: Hope you are alright now and you are really brave to weather these sort of mishap.


Regarding my Dad , yes he is strong [ He was a shotput champion in his college days and also used to lift 60kg of wet paddy that was to be used for sowing. Used to cycle 40 kms up and down daily during his fittest days]. He has already started to work today calling me and telling me nothing to worry.

@Jai3033
Thanks for the link to The Hindu, which showed how to to preserve severe parts. If and only if my dad had read that earlier, we could have preserved it.

Team,
please go through link given by Jai. There it is mentioned how to preserve servered parts. In future it will be of helpful to all of us.
