This is a remarkable story about a remarkable young person. I met Bharti at a 'sangeet'. It was my friend's daughter who was getting married the next day.... and there were lots of beautifully dressed young people letting their hair down on the dance floor. As the dj pumped it up, I noticed a lovely young girl in a wheelchair. Her gal pals were encouraging her to participate and she was doing just that! With a brave smile on her face, she was waving her arms around to join in and be a part of the celebrations. Initially, I thought she may have fractured a leg and would soon be back on her feet. Unfortunately, the story was vastly different. It is a story of gross negligence, neglect and sheer callousness on the part of the guilty individuals who robbed a young, talented woman of her legs.... her life.... her livelihood... and her love.
And to think this happened at a popular night club in a 5-star hotel in Juhu, which was owned and promoted by a celebrity DJ and his partner. Despite her best efforts, nothing has happened so far. Forget responsibility or any talk of compensation, she has yet to receive even an apology.
Read on.... and if you want to know the identity of the guilty, ask me. The magazine that ran the story didn't wish to identify the hotel or the well-connected DJ. Bharti herself is not a VIP's daughter.... so, basically nobody gives a damn.
Well, Blogdosts.... let's show her, we do!
