I am in the second phase of my life ( Its actual rebirth ) living in South Mumbai since day-one. I am right leg on a knee amputee walking with a prosthetic. My movement is very limited as I have two plates on my left leg and one above my left eye.

I had met with a severe accident on 1st October 2015 at 5.30 am while crossing at Marine Drive. The accident was very severe and I was unconscious on the spot and for 45 days in a coma.
I was lucky that some people whom I used to see regularly while walking called an ambulance and took me to the hospital immediately and informed my brother as well.
I was admitted to Saifee Hospital where doctors admitted me after constant persuasion by my family members. My case was of a very serious nature and doctors had concluded that chances of survival were almost zero percent, hence they had not wanted to take any chance by admitting me.
I was in ICU for 86 days and during this period I was treated by five specialists who have worked day and night to save me. The following are a few points that I have gone through during my hospitalization.
A. 15 operations were done on me during hospitalization. Later I had to get admitted thrice for various operations.

H. I had lost speech for almost two months.
I. My left foot had multiple fractures that were restored with the help of Fixators over a period of six months.
J. My body had become completely black and I had lost a lot of weight.
K. I started eating food through the mouth after two months till then it was through the food pipe.
L. Couple of times plastic surgery was done to cover wounds since they were not healing completely.
