FALL on the road

As usual, on 30th July, Thursday, evening 5 PM we two started on a long walk. On our way back, near the Atrium building, I FELL down on the road, flat on my chest. Like doing a namaskaaram.  I was conscious but I could not get up. Cars were stopped and many came to help. Two, three of them lifted me and took me to their car. Vijaya also came in the same car. They dropped me at the house. Good Samaritans, God bless them.

Krithika took me to the nearby Swaram hosp for an anti-tetanus injection.
Two days later I was back to normal.
