I am a student preparing for my competitive exams. I am constantly studying and hence retaining information and staying fit is of primary importance.
I was being extra cautious and tried not to slip off any stone slab. As I am thinking about how smart and careful I was, my head collides against a branch of a tree (so much for being careful!!).
I would not blame it on my height as I am of average build. It took me a while to recover from the jolt and the first thing I did was to recollect my name, my parents’ name and couple of other vital information (I even revised formulas to check if my memory is intact, and gladly, everything was fine).
I believe that, to protecting the interest of the public, very minor changes can be done. The branch could have been trimmed, the number of metal boards could be reduced, if not, atleast kept taller to avoid similar situations.
We have multi-crore metro projects and the associated mishaps. However, less focus has been given to the smaller things around us. I would like to appeal to BBMP to look into this and try make this a better place to live in.
