Mangalore, Feb 15: A truck loaded with sardines toppled on the stretch between Kuntikan and KPT junction here in the wee hours of Friday February 15.

The fish truck was plying from Kozhikode in Kerala to Malpe, Udupi.


Driver Riyaz

It is said that the driver lost control as it was pouring heavily and the lorry skid.

Riyaz was the driver of the truck and Najeeb the cleaner. Both of them escaped with minor injuries.

The truck contained 195 boxes of sardines which scattered on the road.

As the news spread in the area, locals rushed to the spot and grabbed the opportunity to avail free fish! Several people were seen filling bags full of sardines and making the best use of the situation.

    No problem Capt. May be it's a blessing in disguise. After all, if I am right, since you say you are a captain .. may be you must be getting even better huge fresh stuffs directly from the sea. Guess, you wouldn't be regretting with such small stuff. Isn't it? Hope you are now doing fit and fine and feeling upbeat after your visit to Fr. Mullers?

    My catch word : Never regret for anything in life. If you weren't destined, it was never yours.

    Have a splendiferous day ahead.

    How one ordinary and Simple citizen can approach check the photos
    Free Of Fish
    But still makes to Think Pick or Not, if I buy from market only that is fish otherwise it is not fish.
    Finally Self status Factor
    If I Pick Other Will See
    Those who pick the fish they never bother about this world talk, they will move keep on their life Journey
    Kabi Kabi we don’t know how to take the chance @right time in life
    Forget it what iam, forget it what you are Enjoy the bit of life
    Those who pick the Fish Says Thank God Iam Not Abishek Bachan, Thank God Iam not Virat Kohli finally iam Indian Citizen
    Otherwise how can I Pick the Fish? Finally iam very sad to see only few of them picking the Fish.a lot of fish went on vain or still some of them thinking to pick the Fish

    The expression of the driver in the photo is as if his face is oozing with generosity and content that he has done a huge samaja seva. Wonder if the owner of the lorry and those dead fishes will feel similarly.

    Good day to all,
    I am currently on leave in Mangalore.

    Sad to say I am never in the right place at the right time.
    Else, today my menu would have been buthai fry, buthai gassi, Portuguese style barbecue sardines, buthai this and that with brown rice! - lol.
    Tomorrow would be a visit to Fr.Mullers for minor repairs to my digestive system!. But I would have gladly take that chance.
    Have nice day all of you daijiworld readers.
