    Horrific incident!
    May I suggest UdaipurTimes to upload lower resolution images in the news piece if they are so graphic? 800 pixel column for text doesn’t mean that all the images need to be of that width as well. This is almost gore!

    Also, the word you’re looking for is ‘impaled’. Stucks is definitely not a word.

    Well – Shailendra & Huzefa – I believe what Udaipur Times wants to communicate the mass, he did irrespective of the Grammatical error. At this point I believe that we should write few words of appraisal to the team of Doctors who successfully completed this Operation. The injured has not to run Ahmedabad / Mumbai or any other place for this Operation. Today the Udaipur Doctors are capable enough to handle such type of tricky situation and they did once. again. So, it’s time to appreciate them. They (the Doctors Team) will feel very honored and enthusiastic if they read few words of appraisal. Cheers
