My Fellow Humans,
You could be the world’s best person on earth or the most talented individual. Who Knows, you might be the richest person born with a silver or even a Platinum spoon. But basically you are a HUMAN BEING. I earnestly request all of you to have that in Mind. A human being could be any one, A Girl or A boy, A male or a female, An Indian or a Pakistani, A maratian or a Saourashtrian, A Tamilian Or a Keralite, Rich or Poor! Never mind, of course all are human beings. There are certain values for Humans. The so called HUMANITY, COURTESY, KINDLINESS, HELPING TENDENCY ! Guys, Even if you don’t have the mind to help people in distress, just at least clasp your lips tight not to utter any sheer nonsense thing worsening the situation. I agree the society is litigious. You might feel like dragging your feet off the scenario than entertaining a helping hand under any emergency situation on road. It is more a legal issue. But I resolute you guys to act more virtuously than passing ludicrous comments. Remember, today It is someone on the road, yelling for a help due to an accident, and tomorrow it might be you shouting for an Aid or passing SOS messages!
Please try to be a good Samaritan or atleast encourage the helpful by – passers during an accident to be one, rather than encouraging grape wine communications! I agree, since you had not got the opportunity to step into a medical college, you missed the chance of being a gold Or even a platinum medallion in MBBS, MS or MD. But please hold on those innate traits with you for heavens’ sake. Let me reemphasize, your doctoral imaginary advises on a fluke is really worse than an extortion racket, that it loots the confidence of the accident victim.
But to start from the scratch, it is really absurd to make your vehicle’s tummy filled with fuel, to wear the helmets. Helmets are meant for covering human heads. Do not ensnare your helmets to the petrol tank. Instead enmesh it on to your head to safe guard the 1500 g of your grey and white matter inside the poor skull. Follow some decorum on the road. Remember it is the Road – a path for every one like you and me to commute from one place to other. Every one would have one or the other priority to use the Road ways to reach their destination, which of course is definitely not the Hell! This road is not a circus campaign to show off your heroism, neither is it an open Public Call Office, to talk to your cherries or sweet hearts or to your sunnies! Road is just for commuting! Do not make traffic and road safety a far cry here ! at times, there are situations in which a passer by hesitates to help an accident victim because every one feels the victim DESERVES it ! Yeah, I mean it, the victim would have really eaten the brains of people who watch him riding or rather Flying on a bike or clinging on the bus steps even the lizard would accept its defeat in front of him, and penultimately this makes people think he deserves the accident!
And if at all you happen to see an emergency situation or to put it plainly simple, a road accident, do try to help the people in pain. It might be them today, I reemphasize, either of your loved ones or you yourself might need an emergency help. It is not a negative impact or suggestion. The road rage in India is really having a lot of contributors, the fast zipping vehicles to the crawling cycle rickshaws, the snazzy cars to hefty trucks and even the cyclers and pedestrians add a lot to the rage of the road!
Ladies, your ‘handie’ might have all kits for making you up in a glamorous way, and Dear gentle men, your back pack would have all wanted things to prove yourself be a gentle man!
But try to have a pair of sterile glove to cuff your hands when you try to help some one on road! A little note about ICE – Incase of emergency would really help any Samaritan helping you. Yup, one more thing to add on, you cal your father as pappu papa dada dai or even old man, but do save your parents contact number in mobile as father and mother or appa and amma. So that It is really easy for any one to find out your parents’ name to keep them posted. Your ICE – Incase of Emergency, information should contain Very critical medical history about yourself, in case you are suffering from asthma, diabetes or related issues that needs to be taken care while people try to give you a medical emergency aid, your parents’ or first degree relatives’ contact information and your blood group, of course! Do carry this with you always.
Always expect the unexpected. Assure yourself for the best but again prepare yourself for the worst too! Drive safely!
Remember, while stepping out of your homes, you would have bid good bye and “SEE YOU” to your loved ones. A typical human being must always keep up his words!
