I've just learned that our bloggy friend, Braja, and her husband have been in a car accident. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

Here's part of the email I received from her friend...
I came back from the hospital yesterday and am going back this morning.
Braja is in surprisingly good spirits though in a fair amount of pain. She
looks bad but the truck looks worse!
Seriously though. She doesn’t have her mobile right now as she is still in
ICU and mobiles aren’t allowed there. She was having a chest drain put in
last night for a newly discovered punctured lung. Once that was done and
stable they were going to transfer her to another room. Then she will have
her phone. I’m going back today so will give her your messages of concern.
If anybody wants to send personal messages they can email them to me and I’ll give them to her.
The hospital she is in doesn’t allow flowers but when she gets home,
hopefully, in a couple of weeks, you can shower her with them! Any personal messages can be sent to me and I’ll pass them on. I’m going to print out all the current comments and read them to her today. So if you can get any messages to me before 10.30am my time I’ll take them with me.
She will be physically fine but is going to need a lot of emotional TLC.
This has been a real shock for her.
Anyway I’m off to make her some blended soup as she refused to have a
nasogastric tube for feeding her – she can’t eat properly because of many
lacerations inside her mouth. The tube made her feel like she couldn’t
Thank you and all her blogger friends for caring so much. It will help more
than any of us can understand.
***From Lisa at I Didn't Get the Message***
As most of you have heard by now, our friend (icon), Braja, her husband and driver were in a horrific car accident.
Braja has been a friend to us all. She made you feel like you were her best buddy no matter how long she's known you. That takes a kind heart and generous spirit.
I know we're all doing this, but let's keep her, her husband and driver in our thoughts.
To that effect, I'm proposing that on Saturday, 3/14 at 12 noon we have a world-blog moment of silent prayer (no matter where you live) when the sun is highest in the sky and shining upon us all. Just like Braja.
Please post this on your site so all your followers will join in. We are a powerful group and Braja will feel it all the way in India.

I've been keeping up with the updates - Braja had plastic surgery on her face earlier today (she apparently hit the windshield of the taxi she was in) and they are finally going to operate on her husband - his condition has been upgraded from critical to serious.
