Default Do not forgive that driver for refusing to help you.

Sankar its good to know that you are safe but I have a request that you do not pardon that driver not because he was at fault with his driving skills but because he refused to take you to the hospital. Do not for the sake of your life forgive him even if his family comes begging to you. He should be made to pay not because he was at fault for drivng rashly but becasue he refused to help you after causing the accident in the first place. Please, please do not forgive him. Get well soon but I think its going to be some time before you are absolutely normal in your gait.

My god, the title sounded strange, but when I read the first post, it was gut wrenching. I wish you a very speedy recovery.

Scary Man !!! Hope you will get well soon.
By the way what did you do to that driver and the Leela group ? These company vehicle are making life miserable for others including their own employee. Is this safety concern does not include in ISO/CMMi Certified company...

I admire your spirit - the way you wrote it.

That is my worst nightmare that I'm always afraid of.

Take care

oh god, If the accident does not kill you, some hospitals are there to finish the job.

Get on your feet soon and try to get some compensation from Leela. They should pay for their inaction. You can donate the money to charity.

Sorry to hear about your crash. Wishing you very best for a quick recovery. With everyones blessings you should be at it soon.
What is unpardonable is the behaviour of this driver. Wish he was thrashed right there and was lying with you in the hospital. Usually these drivers are well protected by their employers/ companies and thats why they get away with this attitude. Their confidence for rash driving builds up and this is how they behave. You see this kind of behaviour with say taxi drivers too. They drive rash and bully around in traffic. Police of course does not care a damn.
You are so lucky to get help reasonably fast.
All the best anyway.

I tend to agree with this. I can understand a passerby refusing to help, being afraid about legal formalities etc, but refusing to help when you are involved in the crash is pretty unacceptable.

Hey Sankar, Very sad to hear about you accident. When did you come to Bangalore? I thought you were well settled in TVM.

Nevertheless, it is indeed second life. GOD saved you. Hope you come back to normal ASAP but please dont skip physiotheraphy even when you feel you are alright. Pls go strictly what the doc says.

Abhi
