Recently had an occasion to experience live GRACE ....
last week, was on my way from thane to chembur in a rick which was travelling at breakneck speed on the eastern express highway.
a car suddenly cut across from the right and hit our rick.The driver and his asst ( sometimes 2 guys sit in front) were thrown out of the rick while the rick turned on it's side.I was left squatting on the ground with the rick around me and was dragged alongwith the rick a few metres by the car. The car jerked us off and went on it's way.
The inner silenec that I have been experiencing did not desert me at the moment nor did my awareness. the rick came to a halt and people rushed to lift it from above me.I was able to climb to my feet and my clothes were badly torn and my right side of the body in great pain as I was dragged against the tar road.
A young college student drove me to a Dr near my house and miraculously i had suffered no fractures etc. A few bruises were there but they are manageable.My goggles, mobile phone, watch etc were unscathed.
Looking back, i cannot believe that I could get off so easily in a bad accident right in the middle of the expressway where vehicles coming behind me could have easily knocked me off.
Grace had made it's presence felt and a feeling of gratitude overpowered me.....
