Winged wishes: Braja news

UPDATE: You can read more here! http://news.iskcon.com/node/1825/2009-03-14/mayapur_residents_recovering_after_car_crash

To my regular readers: some kind of normal service will be resumed soon! I’m preparing another edition of that whacky carnival you know as Strange Shores. I’ll be posting it up this evening (Sunday) or tomorrow morning.

To my irregular readers: the low-down as I know it about Braja.

– The very kind devotee Paul is going to print out all our comments on Braja’s last post and read them out to her today at the hospital. He then flies back to New Zealand. The link to the updates (that I posted yesterday) will lead you to another of Braja’s friends, who is constantly at her side. There is an e-mail address there, but as she is taking quite a long time to answer, I’m assuming that she has received a lot of e-mails. I’m sure she is very busy and distressed herself and doesn’t have time to answer them all.

– Henry the Dog’s Mum has asked her for a postal address to which we can send cards. In the meantime, I did receive a kind message from Paul, who has this to say:

“The address for the Apollo hospital, as well as phone numbers, email etc can all be found on the following website: http://www.apollohospitals.com/Kolkata.asp

I think it’s a very sweet idea for you all to send cards of support.
I have no doubt it’ll raise her spirits and touch her heart. :-)”

Here is the address:

Apollo Gleneagles Hospital, Kolkata
#58, Canal Circular Road
Kolkata, India

Sheesh – do I have to do all the work for you? 😉

– Please do NOT send flowers to the hospital as they are not allowed. I believe post takes somewhere between 10-14 days to get to India, so you’d better get started!

Just in: Vodka Mom has posted up a reply she got from Ramadevi. Apparently, she is willing to pass on personal messages to Braja, who doesn’t have her mobile in ICU. (So don’t try to ring yet!)

It’s seven in the morning here on Sunday. Can I please go and get a second cup of coffee?

  1. You’re so helpful Lady Fi – I’m wondering now if it’s worth sending the cards to the hospital. She may be out by the time it reaches her. I did have her address on the back of a package she sent me, but I threw the packaging away. I never expected to need her address, and even if I did I expected to be able to email her and ask for it. Dilemma. I think I’ll email the special photo of Henry. xxx

  3. Thanks for the updates. I am sure the cards will be passed onto her if she gets out before they arrive. Yes, you so deserve your coffee.

  4. Thanks LadyFi. I’ve seen her updates on other blogger friends of hers. I only discovered Braja fairly recently and am in shock. A friend from my gym just got back from 3 weeks in India and I told him about Braja. I asked if he and his wife took taxis while in India. He said, “Only the ones approved by the hotels and government.” I was surprised by his comment.
