"It was so awful. For a moment I just blanked out. I just didn't know what hit me, pun intended", says Geeta Basra who otherwise has kept a clean record when it comes to accidents, "I am such a globe trotter and still have considered myself to be accident-proof. And look at what has happened now!"
Trying to recover from the pain she has been feeling ever since she damaged her toe, Geeta has horror stories to tell about her experience during the mini-operation she went through.
"Can you believe it", she exclaims, "I thought it would require normal procedures to fix the bone but I was shocked to see myself being carried away to an operation theater. I had a friend with me and was constantly enquiring if this was indeed required. Imagine my horror when I actually found myself in an operation theater with all the gadgetry and lights around. Thankfully it didn't last long but for whatever duration it was on, it was hardly funny."
With a bandaged toe, Geeta has been advised complete bed rest for at least a fortnight before she even starts walking around freely, let alone hitting the gym.
"All my plans for watching Rock On have gone kaput now", rues Geeta, "I couldn't catch it in the fortnight gone by due to my other engagements and just when I was placing plans for this week, an accident had to happen. I guess it would be a little while from now before I start hanging out again."
Till that time Geeta is keeping content with friends and family for company at home and finishing off the piles of DVDs that she had been longing to catch for weeks. "True, it's time now to pack off quite some backlog that I had collected ever since I set my feet in Mumbai. Of course, now I am longing to set my feet on the Mumbai roads once again", concludes Geeta with a smile.
