When I left for Rajasthan on Thursday another family went with us to visit their loved ones there in the same village. It was our accountant, Limba, and his wife and baby. They stayed only one night and left by bus on Friday night to travel back home while we stayed on in the village.
At 7:30AM on Saturday morning O. and I were awakened by shouts from our niece and our daughter coming into the room and telling us they had just gotten a phone call that Limba and his family were in an accident.
I called home right away and found out that they ad gotten off the bus in our city and were taking an auto rickshaw home and while going on the road another vehicle (a van) came and crashed into the back of them.

Limba banged his head but was not injured, the baby was totally fine, but Limba's wife, Rajni, was hurt badly in her back. Thank the Lord, they were spared worse than that.
