Whenever an ambulance siren strikes your ears, stop your thoughts and actions for a moment and make a quick prayer for the patient and the family.
Way back few years, hearing an ambulance siren was once in a blue moon and definitely gathered all the road’s attention at once. And today, even if I miss to see the Moon on a No Moon day, I don’t miss to hear the siren. Could be that the medical emergency support has improved or the number of people requiring medical emergency support has increased. No matter what we cannot deny that ambulances have become a part of our everyday traffic. Especially, if you’ve been travelling for 3 hours up and down in Bangalore traffic in a single day (like me 😦 ), then your ears are already vaccinated against this sound. (No wonder that the number of births in ambulances are increasing in Bangalore). And if at all the siren reaches our consciousness, most of us try earnestly to look all around to locate the ambulance and faithfully torture our visions to see if there would be any gap in the closed curtains to peep in. And it’s all the more pathetic to see bikers competing with these holy vehicles on the road!
Well, this post is to remind us that at least after finishing our peep-in trials, let us close our eyes for a minute and pray for the patient – no matter who is inside (You may never know, it could be your neighbour even) and to give strength to his/her loved ones. Having this message passed on and with 1000 prayers in an instant, I can imagine how many lives can be saved. Who knows – destiny could be overridden!
Wishing you may never have to face a medical emergency and God forbid, it happens let there be enough prayers all around you to heal you!
P.S. Anything you think can be added here, please leave a comment or an email. It could be anything from removing waste from roadside to donating blood. Your suggestion will bear you a virtue and an acknowledgement in a new post.
