And a crowd around him , so I stopped to ask
He had sudden fall and went unconscious …..

It was the most heart filling experience of my life as the entire airport was standstill watching as I was resuscitating on the floor and then everybody clapped and saluted and blessed me , and one girl even came and said I want to thank you in Indian style and touched my feet
