"For the first time in life" the phrase says it all ! :)
And for the first time in life,last Wednesday I was STUCK INSIDE A ELEVATOR !!
Stop laughing :D
I had gone to my friend's office.We took the lift coming down from the 4th floor.
A jerk , a halt and a half opened door !!!!!!!!!!
Alas, Where are we ?
We were stuck in lift between the 1st floor and the ground floor.
I got reminded of the scene from Kadhalan.
Pokiri lift scene also comes to mind.
For obvious reasons everything fades away from my mind. Reason being the person who was with me ! ;)
We started laughing thinking of our situation . We pressed the ALARM button that was there inside the lift . The sound that it made was not even audible to us and it rang in abrupt intervals. Stupid alarm . No signal in mobile.Screwed? Nah!
I received a mail from a "well wisher" a few days ago which read "Trapped in Lift - Worth to Read" .
Phew! After all the laughing and various movie scenes flashing across my mind , my memory power also proved its sharpness.
I quickly pressed all the keys inside the lift . 3,4,5,1 .
The lift's door closed and started moving up.
Up, uP UP . It went to the 8th floor and then started coming down again .
And stop , full door open , get out of the lift ! :D
It was funny though . And for the first time in life i got stuck in a lift knowing how to handle it :)
The mail i received :
" Please read and forward this to as many as possible.
We never know when and where accidents will happen to us OR people around us. Read on and hope this piece of information may help any of us when things do happen to us, our friends and our loved ones. One day, while in a lift, it suddenly broke down and it was falling from level 13 at a rapid pace. Fortunately, I remembered watching a TV program that taught you must quickly press all the buttons for all the levels. Finally, the lift stopped at the 5th level. When you are facing life and death situations, whatever decisions or actions you make decides your survival. If you are caught in a lift breakdown, first thought in mind may be 'waiting to die'.... But after reading below, things will definitely be different the next time you are caught in a lift.
First - Quickly press all the different levels of buttons in the lift. When the emergency electricity supply is being activated, it will stop the lift from falling further.
Second - Hold on tight to the handle (if there is any).. It is to support your position and prevent you from falling or getting hurt when you loose your balance.
Third - Lean your back and head against the wall forming a straight line. Leaning against the wall is to use it as a support for your back/spine as protection.
Fourth - Bend your knees; Ligament is a flexible, connective tissue. Thus, the impact of fractured bones will be minimized during fall.
For everyone, kindly do share this piece of information with your near and dear ones!!
In love withVinnai Thaandi Varuvaya songs .

A great start to new year !
