Anil Menon - Day of work is over, life will never be the same, I have never confronted so much pain, fractures, gunshot wounds, amputations,
and so many we had to send home. I'll try to email. The smell of bodies was everywhere and unforgettable, people with broken limbs were
so numb they don't cry
