A Narrow Shave...






I am a guest poster.

Ranjit's trusty Tata was slammed into by a convoy of a cabinet minister. Ranjit has a broken femur and some stitches on his head. He is to undergo surgery tomorrow morning. Pictured above is Ranjit in the general hospital in Colombo.

He was transported to Colombo in a long ambulance journey from Polonnaruwa. In my opinion he is lucky to be alive as his vehicle was destroyed.

Considering the terrible turn of events he is in good spirits. Hopefully he will soon be able to tell us all the whole story.

Let us wish him the best on a successful surgery and a speedy recovery.

definitely wishing you a speedy recovery!

i hope that the unnamed cabinet minister is picking up the tab for your medical treatment, demolished vehicle, loss of livelihood, etc. If not, we will have to organize a campaign against him (assuming it's a him).

what is the surgery you have to undergo? i hope that you have competent doctors to perform the work.

Here's wishing you again a very speedy recovery and all the best wishes.

On a brighter note I’d like to leave a link to an article published on Daily FT on 02nd of Feb; The credit to this achievement should be to the likes of Ranjith, who have braved the odds to influence by the eye opening articles published in your blog!

Hi Uncle Ranjit, it's a been a while but I wanted you to know that prayers for you stretch to the other side of the world. Love, Sabrina

Hi Ranjit, I was so sad to hear about your accident. If you were in America, the minister would have his a** sued off!... and you'd be on disability for life ~ so hurry back to California!! We miss you, lots of love, Rori

Get well soon!
