STREET PROVIDENCE TRUST GOA gets this man off the streets of St Cruz, Tiswadi on 8.11.2021.
For the last 1 month, I received many calls requesting to get this man off the road.
Location given was ” under pass of St cruz , Nr Niyaz restaurant “.
But no one sent any pictures of him & the location , only calling and saying help him .
☆ This man Dilip Mule , has been sleeping right in the middle of the road , on the divider, of the Cujira ( fly over ) underpass.
The next underpass of Niyaz restaurant up the road to Gmc .
Video attached. 👇
On Sunday, I was going to south goa and had to meet a person at Merces Circle.
Person requested to come to Niyaz Restaurant & that meant I had to go on the service road and not the HIGHWAY.
Finished my work and proceeded up the service road to join the highway up at GMC.
At Cujira underpass I saw this mam sleeping .
I proceeded to south goa and on my return , past 7 pm I came down the service road to panjim .
Stopped by and saw Dilip exactly in the same place, covered up in all his bedding with plenty of thrash around that divider.
If by chance he just slipped on the road while sleeping and some vehicle over went him then that driver would be in trouble.
Monday our team agreed to pick him .
On Monday , I informed the Old Goa Inspector about this man.
Within no time, the police got Dilip to get up and that entire divider was clean by Dilip himself.
All his rubbish and stuff was packed and kept one side.
Dilip was sitting on the other side in the bus stop.
Initially he refused to get off the bus stop .
But if left there , 100 % by evening he would be back at the same spot with his belongings.
Police by force and convincing managed to get him into our car as by now he had walked away from the bus stop towards panjim .
It seems he may be having some health issues.
The Old Goa Inspector was really quick in getting his men to reach the spot before we reached.
Last 2 days , he is quite in our home and getting detoxified as he was drinking to kill the agony of the dirt and swam of mosquitoes.
Frankly speaking, i was not inclined to pick him from the time the calls were coming for over a month.
I may be getting Lazy I feel at times or I felt that he might require major hospitalization as the man was described to me by various calls making it look like some major case, but no one sent pictures or videos of him and I just ignored their calls.
But God had different plans.
If that person had come to Merces circle i would have gone over the flyover that day to south and not even known that Dilip was still there at CUJIRA underpass.
He was all soiled, unclean , dirty and tired.
Not very old as I assumed but may be 50 or 55 years .
