In any other case who cares on this business whether or not you reside or die, particularly throughout these occasions when life has grow to be so unsure,” says Pahlajji, a veteran producer and former chairperson of the censor board, sounding frail.
So what occurred? “Round a month in the past I used to be at house alone. Even my spouse was away.

My meals was cooked at house. I by no means eat outdoors. However there wasn’t sufficient for everybody. So we ordered meals. Hen is the one non-vegetarian merchandise I eat, in order that they urged me to affix them. Out of politeness I agreed. The minute I bit into the hen I knew one thing was unsuitable. However the others assured me it was okay. So we ate. They left. After some time I felt uneasy and vomited. I felt okay after that. So I simply tried to sleep. At round 3 am I vomited an entire lot of blood. That’s once I panicked and known as my son. Fortunately he stays in the identical constructing.”
From this level within the nightmarish expertise, Pahlajji’s household took over. “They known as our physician, and he suggested that I be taken to the hospital instantly. I used to be at Nanavati hospital for the subsequent 28 days. Nobody was allowed to go to me due to the pandemic. I spoke to my spouse on video calls.”

Now all his well-wishers are questioning if it was Covid. “No, it wasn’t that. I bought Covid in April 2020. I recovered at house. This was far more severe. I used to be hospitalized for the primary time in my life. Nobody knew if I’d come out alive. I survived as a result of God and my household had been with me.”
Weak however resolute, Pahlajji intends to take robust authorized motion towards the eatery that served him his near-lethal meal on that fateful night time. “It might have been the final meal of my life. Everybody who ate that night time was sick. However I used to be hit the toughest. I urge everybody to have solely home-cooked meals in these arduous occasions.”
