I started to my office at around 8.30am from my home, i just joined the main road from my home and there was a huge pile up of traffic. After negotiating a few minutes in the traffic i came to the bottle neck where in there was a bus and passengers were busy getting down from the bus and catching another bus.Initially i thought it was a bus break down. Since it is a single road there was huge pile up of traffic on both the sides.. some how i struggled and over took the bus, to my horror i saw a person lying in a pool of blood in front of the bus. I didn't understand what had just happened, but got irritated that no one was even worried to lift the person. I could not find a immediate parking, somehow i went a bit ahead and put my vehicle in a no parking zone and came back. On the way back i tried calling 100 twice. Gave a complete ring however no one responded.. felt very bad that this is the emergency service in my country :-(. Probably emergency service call has to be picked up in one call.
This person was lying down in a pool of blood and flesh, however he was still breathing and was in a real bad condition. However the worst thing was no one was ready to help me him lift. I just took him by his arms and tried to lift him however he was pretty heavy for me alone but to my luck one more person joined and then he took him completely over his shoulder. We could stop an auto and then put him in. However since there was huge pile up of traffic by the time i went back to get my vehicle the auto had gone and i had no way of going back along the road. Felt bad that i could not go along to the hospital however felt really bad about the people standing by it would have been at least 5min after the accident and no one was ready to help him out. Every one were just talking and the 2nd thing was emergency service was not working how bad :-(
Hopefully he would have survived and nothing much would have happened.

Some times in life the easier things are been thought the harder way. A normal day i went to office and when i was about to park my vehicle in the stand a small pigeon was probably learning to fly, it just flied past my vehicle and i just lifted my head to look at it and to my horror all of a sudden kite or probably what we say an eagle picked up the pigeon on its flight. At first i couldn't believe it, it just happened in front of my eyes hardly 5meters away.It was one of the best hunt i had seen in my life through naked eyes, appreciated the talent of the kite to pick its pray on the fly. Probably i wouldn't have been a worried man if it just carried away its pray, even though i would have felt bad for the pigeon but then that's nature on which i cannot do much.

What happened next was something disturbing for me, the kite couldn't pick up the pigeon clearly and it was dropped half way, however the pigeon was badly hurt. Now i was standing between the kite and pigeon on ground. Probably the kite was a bit scared to come back again as i was standing in between. Should i help or leave it to its fate? I saw the kite sitting on the wall and waiting for me to leave. Well i was caught in 2 minds what should i do?

I just stoped there for say 1 or 2 min and probably the kite didn't have any patience and it left the place, even though i was happy for the pigeon initially but then i realised the harsh realities its tough for an injured bird to leave in this harsh world. I felt like probably it would have been good if it was at least food for the kite and probably its family!!!

But that was past, i didn't know what to do but then probably only thing that came to my mind was pick up the pigeon and keep it in a safe place and i did that. But probably the pigeon was over anxious or probably it got scared of me or probably i did something wrong :-( it tried to fly again and went and sat in a place which i was not able to reach :-( but still it was badly hurt and was struggling to fly. Then to my horror i saw that 2 crows started to attack the pigeon i couldn't stand there any more and i had it enough. It was an important lesson for me in life, We should never think or try to help if we are never sure of the outcome. Many a times we think we help, but without knowing the actual thing we might end up creating more problems. Probably we should only help if we can stand by it till the end :-(
