With no other option, I decided to go to the hospital with the help of Google Maps. I got out of the car and decided to cover the rest of the journey by running on the Sarjapur-Marathahalli route. Running was easy for me as I do gym regularly. I ran 3 km to the hospital and did the surgery on time.
