Changing face of INDIA...  

Posted by NoeL in , ,

Hi all,
I came to know about this yesterday. Infact, I got this mailed to my official email id by one of the seniors (top brass) in Mahindra. The letter, of which I am speaking of, is attached below.


(Click on the image to enlarge)

It says... "The supreme court has ruled that all injured persons especially in the case of road traffic accidents, assaults etc., when brought to a hospital/medical centre, have to be offered first aid, stabilized and shifted to a higher centre / government centre, if required. It is only after this that the hospital can demand payment or complete police formalities. In case you a bystander and wish to help someone in accident, please go ahead and do so. Your responsibility ends as soon as you leave the person at the hospital. The hospital bears the responsibility of informing the police, first aid etc..."

This is indeed a welcome change from the higher ups in the government. :) I hope, with many more of the likes, INDIA will be a better place to live in... sooner!!

I feel disgruntled that an engineer believed what came as a forward. A quick Google revealed these:

As for your letter, some glaring 'mistakes':
1. No signature
2.Letter ends in .....
3.Tilted print
4. I wonder which printer would print such in a tilted manner? It clearly is not from a typerwriter.

I hope, you will either prove the legality/authenticity of this letter or make amends to your post.

Hi Charlie..

Thanks a lot for those links.. I was very happy to see this news and hence posted. The reason for not even checking its authenticity was because of the source from which i got his piece of information. This was given to me by my Sr. GM in Mahindra.

Anyways, now i will forward these links to him. :)

By the way, i would like to quote an incident that happened in Kottayam, Kerala. This happened a couple of days back. A bike, on which a couple was travelling, got into an accident. The wife flew from the bike on to the side of the road and was seriously injured. The husband was holding her in his laps and was crying out for help. No one helped. And finally, the inevitable happened. She died in the laps of her husband.

This is the situation prevailing in India as on date. Why are these happening? Is it because of the lack of human love for the fellow humans? Or is it that the humans are afraid / tired of the formalities / troubles one have to face? This is a point to ponder on!!

NB: I am at my home in Kerala at present. Hence the delay in approving the comments and reciprocating for the same.

As a matter of fact, I wanted to confirm this news, before I forwarded it, but that is when I came to know it might just be a hoax. I have to agree that this is has atleast a positive effect rather than the pure nonsense in other forwards.

I would be very happy if such a law was enacted/pronounced.

My dear friend, as you guys are arguing it may or may not true. Anyway I also hope this is true. And before that let me ask one question, suppose you see and accident and you take him to hospital. And after that u leave the place without telling anything. What will happen?? I am asking this just because of my curiosity. I dont think it is difficult to leave the place, which is so big as hospital. If u leave also nobody is going to notice. I dont understand the problem in this?? Any idea???
That may not be legal. But we are very much interested in doing illegal things, if we get money. So why not do some illegal thing(not sure if that is legal or illegal, assume its illegal for the time being) in this case to help someone.
