Humanity Dying On Roads

I am the one who is loved by my family
blessed with a caring wife
and an adorable son

My son is just an year old
I get refreshed with his warming smile

Life is so beautiful
and precious

With one collission
it changed

Once I opened my eyes
found myself near
the tyres of truck

I was lying on the enfeebling road
and my eyes were
asking for help
nobody came to me
the humanity was dying on the road

After 3 hours police called my closed ones
not a single drop of blood
visible on my body
not even a scratch
but something beyond  was troubling me
I could not breathe
something was pressing upon
I was taken to the hospital
but the hospitals were refering the case
taking support from oxygen
lying on stretchure in ambulance

My body was hurting
my breathe was leaving my body
waiting in ambulance
for life
flashes of my son and wife was repeating in front of my eyes.

They need me and I needed more breath
to reach the hospital where I could get life
Life was never that important to me

Voices were fading
breathing was breaking
heart beat stopped

I am no more
but left my loved ones
nobody can fill that Vacuum I created

I left a few questions to all those who pulled life from me:
1] Why did nobody bothered to save my life when I was dying on road?
2] Why did the hospital not equipped and try to save people when they need it most?

Aww..that was one touchy poem.

It happens Pratibha. I have known a person to loose his life because help did not arrive in time..worst thing was someone stole his watch and wallet from the site of accident....hate to even think how can one fall to such low..

Dear Doc
It is dreadful but your writing is superb.
You have raised valid questions, I know why it is so in India but I dont see any solution..I recall many decades back i had taken a dying accident victim to the hospital and the police caught me with charges that I might have hit the person...and I was made to sit at the police station for hours...sick...
But I can say, in Calcutta and Bombay people still take accident victims to hospital...but rarely or never in Delhi.
In spite of supreme court order still hospitals refuse to treat until the police come.
Anyway ...
Will look forward to more writing from you
Have a nice day and Happy New year

@geeta-yes people are just racing for nothing.

Pratibha The Talent January 12, 2011 at 11:35 PM  

@Always happy-thanks dear for the appreciation.Stealing belongings of dying person-pathetic!

Pratibha The Talent January 12, 2011 at 11:41 PM  

@Ushnish Ghosh sir-thanks for the your encouraging comment.
I know people avoid to indulge in matters where police is involved and sometimes its our law and order which is pushing humanity to the back seat.
Awareness is generating at the cost of lives.

The world has become so mechanical, we have no time for others. So are those others to us. Hard to believe but that is the reality.

Shri Ram Ayyangar January 13, 2011 at 5:57 AM  

You have very aptly brought out the agony and expectations of a person dangling between life & death.

Sathish Kumar January 13, 2011 at 6:44 AM  

//I am no more
but left my loved ones crying
nobody can fill that Vacuum I created//

Words slam deep and ugly silence of our Conscience when it ought not to, Pratibha..!

Actually our deafness and dumbness kill much the dying persons than the agony they undergo. Shame on us..!

Purba January 13, 2011 at 6:34 PM  

This is no way to die....Every year newspapers print road accidents as mere statistics, how many of us spare a thought for the devastated families that were left behind.

Rajesh January 13, 2011 at 9:07 PM  

This is too bad. The way the things are it will not get better.

subtlescribbler January 14, 2011 at 2:42 AM
