Rickshaw Driver Knocked Down By Aditya Narayan Is Still Almost Unconscious
At 5:30pm on March 12, singer Udit Narayan’s son Aditya’s Mercedes knocked an auto rickshaw, severely injuring the driver. The 64-year-old was rushed to Kokilaben Ambani Hospital and admitted to the ICU.  

Since then, a large section of the media has forgotten about the unfortunate incident. However, we have been concerned because the poor man battling for his life, is far from being back on the driver’s seat.

And even though there has been no word on the old man’s health, we at SpotboyE.com have been concerned and have been constantly trying get in touch with the his family. Finally, we managed to speak to them, this evening.

This is the exact sorry state of affairs they find them in:


Aditya Narayan

The rickshaw driver’s condition is still very bad, even though thankfully he’s out of danger. In the last two agonising weeks, he hasn’t shown the slightest of movement. He hasn’t uttered a word since the accident, nor has he identified any of his family members.

The only glimmer of hope is that since he has been moved from the ICU to the Stroke Unit, he’s trying to open his eyes a little and move his left side (only very slightly) while still mostly unconscious. Obviously, there is injury to his brain.


Udit Narayan & Aditya Narayan On Stage

We hear that Udit and Aditya often come by to visit the driver and his family at the hospital. Udit’s wife also visits once in a while.

Speaking to us, the ailing driver’s nephew revealed that even though they feel agonised talking to the Narayans, they have tried telling them, “Lagta hai break ki jagah, unke bete (Aditya) ne accelerator par pair rakh diya hoga, warna aisa impact aur aisa damage nahi hota. 70/80 kms/hr ke speed se unki gaadi chal rahi thi.”

Speaking further to the family, SpotboyE.com got to know this about the 64-year-old’s background and the hardships he has faced…

The driver has two children, a son, 25-years-old and an unmarried daughter, who is 30-years-old.

The Auto Driver On The Hospital Bed

The family is financially weak. The driver used to work in a mill earlier, and since it shut down, he had much difficulty finding work. Finally he loaned money from various friends and family members to buy a rickshaw, which unfortunately soon got stolen.

But since he found rickshaw-driving a sensible and secure way to earn his livelihood, he approached the bank for a loan to buy another rickshaw (the one he was driving when he met with the accident). He was paying Rs 7000, as monthly EMI on the rickshaw.

Aditya Narayan

Even with his monthly earnings, the financial condition of his family was far from comfortable. In fact, debt-ridden, as they were, they barely were managing to make ends meet.

Fate can sometimes be extremely cruel!
