His family said they sought medical help in the initial days, when he began to sleep excessively.

Shortcuts are not always good.

In fact, they can be dangerous. Very dangerous.

As a senior citizen in Kalyan recently discovered.

He was doing that annoyingly dangerous thing many Indians do, crossing the railway tracks instead of using the foot overbridge.

Hats off to train driver who applied the emergency brakes and saved the man's life.
