Jagathy Sreekumar, who was gravely injured after he met with an accident at nearby Tenhipalam on March 10, was able to recognise his college mates.
It was earlier reported that Jagathy Sreekumar, who is now being treated at CMC Vellore, was unable to recognise people around him. However, recently when his college batchmates Dr Titus Sankaramangalam and actor Ravi Vallathol visited Jagathy at the hospital, he responded positively to them. The two had studied with Jagathy in 1971 at Mar Ivanios College in Thiruvananthapuram. Reports say that the actor's right leg and hand are little paralysed, but responding well to medication and therapies.
At the time of the visit, Jagathy Sreekumar was seen playing cards on the bed (as per the advice by the doctor as part of the neuro rehabilitation treatment). Jagathy Sreekumar is recuperating past, though he is still to regain his speaking ability. According to reports, Jagathy's nasal feeding tube was removed on Wednesday and the actor has begun consuming idli for breakfast, rice and fish curry for lunch and porridge at night. If the actor continues to show progress, he might be able to leave the hospital by September.
