Have the people forgotten about how the GMOA opposed the 1990 Ambulance Program from India? NOT ONE WORD NOW AGAINST IT!
Is anyone contesting that these Ambulances have saved numerous lives? The intention is to spread it around the Country.
What are we waiting for? More Indian Money or Ambulances!
Even INDIA DOES NOT HAVE A SERVICE LIKE WHAT THEY GAVE US! TRUST ME, AN INDIAN TOLD ME VERY ENVIOUSLY.
Is there anyone in Sri Lanka proactive enough to suggest/implement/ demand that we use the present stock of Ambulances, already owned by the Ministry of Health to IMMEDIATELY roll it out nationwide, without delay? It seems not!
It is obvious, when it comes to saving lives, Sri Lankans are definitely not in a hurry!
Let another 4,000 die on our roads before someone wakes up. Thanks to the Ambulances, the Road Kill of Humans has not gone up. At least it has stayed the same. Are we waiting for it to go up, before we roll it out Nationwide? and then see NO change, and then the POLICE will take the credit for no increase in Death’s on the road, when it was the Ambulances stupid!
These are the dichotomies we are faced with every day in dealing with the Sri Lankan psyche, so irrational and nonsensical that saner people just don’t bother anymore.
So why am I bothering?
You ask me, the same question, about anything else, as it does not affect me, so why bother?
What if it is YOU in the accident, praying that SOME AMBULANCE will come to take you to hospital, and not a good Samaritan who will pull you out and break your spine doing so or transporting you incorrectly in a bad posture in a three wheeler and leave you paralyzed for life.
These are real issues, not imaginary ones, and reasons for, if you are still looking for one, (if you think I am a stark raving loony) as to why I blog. Please some good Samaritan, come to my aid, I will think you help with the next step.
