From 1997 to 2000, I worked in LTMGH, Sion - it handled the highest volume of trauma cases in Asia. A large chunk of the injured were railway accident victims. Fall from train, hit by pillars while hanging from train, run over by train after falling at platform. #ChalaNigha
Day after day, the sickening injuries poured in. Legs cut off, heads shattered. Reason? Overcrowded trains. How we wished for closing doors on the trains. Over a dozen lives could be saved by this alone. But how can doors be closed, with hundreds hanging out? #ChalaNigha
Its been nineteen years. Nothing has changed. Dozens still pour in every day. A young girl with both legs chopped off. A young guy with his head caved in, fighting for life. A father, brought dead on arrival. How long? How long can this continue? #ChalaNigha
The lives of those dying and disabled on our overloaded rail network every day cannot be replaced. They, and their families, are destoyed forever. My maushi lost her son last year, fell from the train and died. Young bright boy, only good earner of a joint family. #ChalaNigha
Next time you hear a Nirupam or a Manoj, or a Diya, or an Aaditya for that matter, support something that will affect the commissioning of #Metro which should have been functional a few decades ago, politely tell them #ChalaNigha - we will not tolerate any more delay.
