“I can never forget the fateful day when a friend called to inform me about the plane (Air India’s Kanishka aircraft) crash. It was a day of hope and despair as the rescue operations were underway and we were hoping for survivors to be found” Vijayendra Ghatge mentioned in one of his interview. Soon after, their worst fears were confirmed. Later, Air India flew the relatives to the crash site. Sangeeta, who was the baby of the family, worked as a cabin crew with the airline.
