Ranjan Is In Deep Coma And Hasn't Opened His Eyes Over Last 30 DaysBy the time Subhashree reached the hospital, her husband was already inside the operation theatre. Her husband's friend took her through what happened in the brutal accident and the subsequent severe injury Ranjan has taken to his head.
"He worked as a tailor and was leaving for home. Since it was pretty late in the night, he called up a friend who had a bike, requesting him to drop home. They were coming home when a vehicle hit them from the back and the bike skidded. Being the pillion rider, Ranjan took the brunt of the fall," recalls Ranjan's friend, Vikram Mohanty.

Luckily for Rajan though, help was immediate. He was taken to a multispeciality hospital and was swiftly put under emergency care. He had multiple surgeries to reverse the consequences of the trauma. He was put on ventillator. For few days, his condition stayed between critical and extremely critical. Chances of survival were minimal, but he has not stabilized.

"Treatment is ongoing, but the accident was severe enough to push Ranjan into a deep coma. The doctors are not sure when he will wake up. They say that they are doing their best, and now its all up to fate. His wife is 6-months-pregnant and running around the hospital, hopeless and worried. It is terrible that such a young family has to go through all this," says Vikram.
Ranjan Moved to Bangalore To Give His Family A Better LifeRanjan is from Orissa and has been in Bangalore for few years, hoping to give his family a better life. His parents are elderly and still haven't come terms with their son's cruel fate. After taking loans from their neighbors, they have arranged for Rs 40,000. But sadly, this meager amount is not even close to enough.

Ranjan is still in a critical condition and his hospital bills keep mounting. He has a 4-year-old daughter and a pregnant wife waiting for him. The very reason why Ranjan moved to Bangalore has reversed, leaving his family at a complete loss.
"His wife doesn't understand much. She is from a village and hardly meets any one or speaks the local language in Bangalore. Every time a doctor comes to visit, she hangs on to every word, not wanting to miss any information about Ranjan's health. If she hears even a single positive thing about Ranjan's condition, she rushes to call her in-laws. But of late, I only see her crying. Things are very difficult for her in her state," says Vikram.
How Can You Help?Ranjan is the only earning member and with him in a coma, the family is struggling to make ends meet. His friends are helping him but are still coming up short.
