Accident survivor hoists the Indian flag at Manipal Hospitals on the occasion of Republic Day
Manipal Hospitals Old Airport Road recently operated upon Bengaluru-based Pooja Bajaj, a self-driven, ardent motorcyclist, and entrepreneur, who faced an accident. Bajaj who recently recovered hoisted the Indian flag at Manipal Hospitals on the occasion of Republic Day.
Bajaj was back on her bike within 26 days after facing the accident that crushed her entire collar bone. Her surgery was done only after six days at Manipal Hospitals, and multiple titanium plates, bolts and screws cover 85 per cent of her right shoulder.
Dr Manish Rai, Hospital Director, Manipal Hospitals, Old Airport Road, stated, “This year’s Republic Day celebrations have a completely different sentiment compare to the previous years. With the outbreak of the pandemic last year, it left the country rattled and hesitant to even dream of a Republic Day celebration. With the successful vaccine roll-out, today, we are delighted and honoured to celebrate our nation’s progress in the healthcare infrastructure and strength to face the global pandemic.”
