On the night of June 4th around 10:30 PM, Srinivas Murthy, a cab driver, met with a traumatic road accident near Dasarahalli Village Road. He is now fighting to survive in the ICU with severe injuries to his head, the right side of his face and right shoulder.
This story has been written from the perspective of Shivashankar (Srinivas’ brother).
Srinivas left the village and came to Bangalore to support us all. My parents, wife and I are into agriculture. Over the past few years, the drought and summers have reduced our agricultural income to nothing. We could not even afford a meal. He took a job as a driver for a decent salary. It kept us afloat.
After the surgery, Srinivasa was back on ventilator support. I have been waiting for him to open his eyes, but the doctor says he needs more time to recover. All I see is my brother having seizures. His body keeps jerking every now and then.
