Its been three days since I had the worse motor vehicle accident of my life. But thanks to almighty god, I made it alive from the rubbles of my damaged car. I escaped the scene without a slightest injury on my body. My clean shaven head banged the windshield which broke into million pieces, but its pretty amazing that my skull withstood that thud. My knees hit the dashboard, but medical reports confirmed it as 'stable'. My chin crashed on the steering wheel, but amazingly escaped without a small bruise. The hand of divinity has done a magic to save a catastrophic end in any sense. So I thank you almighty god for this. I sincerely do.
However the post accident-incidents are more chilling. The magnitude of the loss of property not only bewildered the beholders but victimized three commoners. For one, it was a loss of his hard earned family asset. I think that damaged taxi was the only property he had. For another it was a loss of his family's entire savings. As for me. loosing an only asset, that I annually declared to National Anti Corruption Commission was something that was by any measure disheartening and shocking. If my car cannot be repaired then, I will have nothing to declare for the ACC, next year. Such was the state of nature!
I called home to inform my wife about the mishap. But it was my mother-in-law at the other end, who fumbled and stumbled to converse with me. However in the background, I could hear my elder daughter, (4 years) telling me not to panic. She was in fact suggesting me to buy a car of "Mr. Bean" next time though.
