Nagpur: In a heart touching incident, Mansi Prafulla Darode (18), the Zomato delivery girl who died in an accident on late Friday night, has provided vision to others. Her father, Prafulla Darode, has donated her eyes to preserve her vision for life even after her death.
Mansi was killed when a speeding motorcycle collided head-on with her two-wheeler at Omkar Nagar in Ajni Police Station limits late Friday night. She was a resident of Jain Layout, New Subhedar, Hudkeshwar. Mansi was working as a delivery girl for Zomato. She was going to deliver an order when the accident occurred at 10.10 pm. A speeding Bajaj Pulsar motorcycle (MH-49/AB1220) collided head-on with Mansi’s two-wheeler. Mansi sustained grievous injuries in the mishap. She was admitted to hospital where she breathed her last on Saturday at 9.30 am.
The 18-year-old girl, whose vision was bigger than her age, was a simple girl who took up food delivery just to break the stereotypes set by the society. Mansi was 18-year-old and there was absolutely no need for her to work, Prafulla Darode, her father told Nagpur Today.
He revealed that he was not very pleased with Mansi’s decision to take up food delivery but she managed to convince him by saying that there are other girls too who did this job. “She had a different vision of life. She had free time after her college and that’s when she decided to take up food delivery,” Masni’s father added.
Darode also said that he agreed to Mansi’s wishes on one condition — that she had to be back home by 5 pm. The day of the accident was the first day where she had taken a later shift of 7.15 pm, he revealed.
As per Mansi’s father, she was just not close to her parents, she was close to all the residents of the New Subhedar Layout. She wanted to pursue MBA after her college and was very clear with what she wanted to do.
Her father added that she was fond of bikes and started riding at a young age. The day of the accident was the first day she took her bike to deliver food instead of her regular scooter. Mansi was declared dead at Government Medical College Hospital on September 24. Her father expressed his wish to donate all the vital organs of Mansi but unfortunately the doctor said it was too late to do so.
The doctors said that they can only go ahead with Mansi’s eye donation and keep her vision alive.
