Strange Turn of Life

It was the year of 1981, month June; she met with an accident while traveling from Trichy by bus. She was comparatively less injured with few cuts and bruises.
But due to the huge number of patients, her wound in the right ankle was wrapped without any kind of treatment and dressing. This caused gangrene in her foot and to avoid it to spread it in all over the body, the doctors decided to amputate her right foot.
