  1. Sad.May his Soul rest in peace.Onething is to be made in Mangalore when possible.When someone is injured or serious,he should be given first aid on the spot before moveing to Hospital.either a doctor should be called or self give first aid.For example,when one gets heartattach,first aid is very very important ,giving him /her by heartmassage,or mouth to mouth breathing.so that Patient gets some Oxygen to breath.Then take him to Hospital.because when you take him to Hospital without giving first aid,he doesnt get Oxygen heart doesnt get Oxygen ,and also brain,so that he will die.

      Oh! What if somebody’s house is in Shakthinagara and he/she suffers an unfortunate “heartattach” – say at 3 AM? No power too! Airtel is dead! So is reliance!

      ‘Attach the heart’ in a gunny bag and start walking like Johnny Lever… I mean.. Walker and hope some walking will pump some O2 to the brain thereby ‘resuscitating’ the walking dead?

      Wow! 🙂 RitaBai… I’m highly impressed!
