“If I don’t work, what will I eat, and how can I fend for my family? If my work demands, then, I will surely climb the stairs of the same bridge, again and again, no matter what,” says Munilal Jaiswal.
Munilal Jaiswal, a 64-year-old man is one of the Mumbai bridge collapse survivors who has been able to escape with minor injuries. Munilal has been recuperating at Mumbai’s state-run GT hospital.
Munilal who works as a security guard at Anjuman-e-Islam school, opposite CSMT station, was crossing the bridge to resume his duty when the fateful incident took place.
While speaking to My Medical Mantra, Munilal says, “I am shattered but, the fear cannot take control over me. I will surely climb the stairs and cross over to the other side to CSMT station if the situation demands it.”
Munilal has suffered an injury on his forehead and one of his fingers has also been fractured. Munilal, who hails from Uttar Pradesh, stays with his son in Mumbai.
