” On 6th May 2017, I was returning from my office at around 11 pm. I saw someone at the corner of Nerul Bridge. I stopped my car to check. I found two badly injured young boys who have met with a bike accident. I reversed my car and blocked the way and asked help from other vehicles passing from there.
There were no street lights. One tempo stopped there, and with the help of the driver and two other people who have stopped there (I don’t remember their names exactly), we immediately took those kids to DY Patil Hospital.
They were unconscious, and their condition was really critical. The doctor said that out of those two children, the elder one had minimum chances of survival. We could call their parents as one of the kid’s cell was not password-protected. After their parents arrived, we decided to take them to the KEM Hospital. It was one tough night. Frankly speaking, the doctor’s statement made me have very little hope for them. I left the hospital after some time. Amidst the rush and commotion, I forgot to save the contact numbers of their parents, so I was not able to take any further update.
Five months later, I got a call from their father Mr Desai (he had noted down my number that day). He called me home to meet. When I asked about the children, he told that both of them are fit now. It was a moment which I can’t express in words.
I went to meet them on New Year’s day. It was a very emotional meet. I have no words to express the moment. After meeting them, I had a big relief and realised that small acts could make a big difference in anyone’s life.
Their names are Vaishnav Desai and Vinay Desai. I wished them all the best for their future. God Bless them.
My request to all is that “Please help if you find anyone who has met with an accident or facing any problem. Your small kindness can save someone’s life. Someday we may be the victims. Spread the word about your good work and keep helping.”
