Heartless Delhi

Indian Bloggers


It was a saying in India that Mumbai belongs to rich while Delhi to people with big hearts (Mumbai Paisewalo Ki, Delhi Dilwalo Ki) but the incident that happened early morning of 11th August in West Delhi's Subhash Nagar area is enough to show how big heart of Delhi is. Matibool a man who work two shifts to run his family was hit by a milk carrying over-speeding three wheeler vehicle when he was returning from night shift at 5:40 am. The milk delivery man stopped his tempo, examines the victim who was bleeding after striking with a nearby pole looked around and ran away with his vehicle. A rickshaw puller who came to see Matibool instead of helping took away his mobile phone. In the 30 minutes that it took for a friend to spot Matibool and run for help, 140 cars, 82 three-wheelers, 181 bikers and 45 pedestrians passed the dying man without helping. Among them was a police van that responds to emergencies.

He died when the hospital was only half kilometer away with him humanity also died a slow death. The Delhi people who always remained at the forefront in displaying their support for people’s right didn't help to protect someone's right to live. The animals in this country enjoy more human rights than the humans. The people didn't even care to call the ambulance. The tempo driver was arrested but how will it help the family of seven which lost its only bread earner. It is sad that people don't come to help accident victims even after Supreme Court directions that the person who brings the victim will not be involved in any legalities of the case. Neither police will force him/her to be witness of the case.

The similar case happened few years back in Jaipur also when a man cried for help on a busy highway but none came to help save the lives of his wife and daughter. Here I have one question from the authorities also. Why these CCTV cameras didn’t have an observation center which can alert police if the incident happens on a particular road. This could save a precious life. People must also think of their actions. What happened to Matibool can happen to anyone of us in such heartless cities. Helping an injured reach the hospital would just waste your few minutes and nothing else. Let’s pledge together to help any injured on road. May god give strength to Matibool’s family and sense to all those who passed that road without helping him. God Bless Delhi. God Bless India.

It is really not shocking if you know Delhi. It never had a heart despite the vaunted saying about its 'dil'. It is a city of most selfish people, fraudulent godmen and criminal politicians.

One more disheartening incident.If our county's own capital is not safe then how can we expect from other state governments. Same story everywhere! :(

Thanks for sharing nice post

There are several low cost Nasha Mukti Kendra in Delhi that have enough money services within budget. I know, we all hear roughly the high class pamper centers where the skillfully-to-make a get your hands on of and dexterously-known grow get their rehab, but these can cost more in a hours of day, than some of us make in a month, or even a year.
