Battle Against Corona…Utter Confusion

The Indian healthcare system is very uniquely designed, by default and not by willful customisation of course, uniquely designed to excel and succumb both. Okay, I understand, having made such a bold opening statement I am under a moral obligation to elaborate and I won't dodge it. Designed to succumb does not need much of deciphering it is almost self-evident. ...

Government Apathy towards Small Medical Centres in the Battle Against Corona…A strategic Mistake.

"The war has begun, the bodybags have started pouring in but I see none of them wrapped in the tricolour, no one honouring them with 21 gun salute."A war is won not by the political and bureaucartic hail of befuddiment but by the corage and valour of the frontline soldiers. The Problem The problem with the Indian healthcare system had been that its political masters have not only failed to recognise the valour of its outreach cadre but also have served them a recipe of confusion. In the absence of a clear and guiding strategy to motivate and recruit private healthcare professionals in the war against COVID 19, Indian healthcare is heading towards a catastrophe. Who are these private healthcare professionals and why blatant neglect of their issues will be blunder we ought not to indu...

The Manifesto I want For My India

Is the idea of a democracy is just to vote and choose a group of people and empower them with constitutional rights to loot us. If you dismiss this statement as irrational, illogical and a product of negative mindset well, take a brief pause and think again with a microscope of pragmatic analysis. I am sure, many of you, if not all, will have a heart that would want to shout and say 'Yes, it's true' but you dare not because your acquired common sense would compel you to believe it as unconstitutional. A process as pure as a democracy should not be blamed for the fallacy of its execution. There you go, we have a constitution that provides for theses flaws to exist. what is more disturbing however is that not only such fallacies have existed but also nurtured and amended from t...

AAP… A Lost Opportunity

It was perhaps November 2012, I was sitting in my Nursing Home there was a cesarean section about to start and we all were waiting for the anaesthetist of our team to arrive. For some reasons, which were evident when he arrived, an otherwise very punctual man, a very serious and non-political person dedicated to his profession got delayed. What was more perplexing than his unusual deviation from his normal professional discourse was the attire in which he arrived in the operation theatre. A tricolour band carrying the imprint 'I support Do You', around his forehead, a tricolor in his hand and a T-shirt proclaiming ' मैं भी Anna'. Of course, I was curious but as was customary all informal chats were to wait till the time the patient is anaesthetised so I waited and then solici...

Four Gravest Mistakes Of My India

I am no political analyst but I am compelled to write this because my nationalist self will not allow me a quieter repose otherwise. With so much talk going around in current arena about nationalism and anti-nationalism about an impactful retaliation and considering the long term repercussions of such retaliation. Well, these are political decisions but then so were many other decisions or mistakes of the past whose long term effects have resulted in our present day crisis.   What are these mistakes I am referring to? Well, as I said earlier, I am attempting to dwell into the subject like a common man with only my nationalist pride as the tool to analyse the dark pieces of history and let me tell you nothing more was ever needed to avoid these grave national crimes, and surely y...

The New Age Journalism……..Outlook Needs An Insight

The point of reference for this writing is an article published in the outlook by Mr Rajesh Ramchndran The Cross of Valour in the 'Vicious Campaign for Hatred (VCH)' should definitely be awarded to Mr Rajesh Ramchandran because, as a prodigy of new age journalism, he has defied logic and sensible reasoning to craft out an editorial like this, highly unacceptable from a magazine of this stature. He makes a really laughable comment when he says and I quote, " Delhi is a dangerous place to fall Sick", I bet he has never encountered any serious sickness in his life and I pray to God to keep him hail and hearty but can I really pray for that because in his next comment he issues an inexplicable advisory "Keep God out of this", Can God, anytime, be kept out of a matter of life and deat...

No NMC

गरीब लहरों पर पहरे बिठाए जाते हैं समंदरों की तलाशी कोई नहीं लेता। This unfortunate scenario is the hallmark of the typical Indian system where from the time immemorial the soft targets, the personification of truth, honesty and dedication, have been subjected to undergo the suffering of acid tests. During the days of Ramayana it was the soft, docile Sita, the Goddess persona of love and devotion who was subjected to multiple Fire tests to the extent that finally she could bear no more and buried herself underground. Today it is the hardworking medical fraternity, leaving aside the other much more corrupt fragments of the society like the judiciary, the politicians and almost the entire administrative agencies, that is bearing the burnt of governmental  malice ,why? because the...
Unrealistic Expectation

Unrealistic Expectation

Reality has an obligatory effect of matching the subconscious image that we have about a particular entity, unfortunately the subconscious image of medical profession that is being created by the malicious media and the unrelenting system is one of loot and criminality and the reality is just an after effect of the same. We carry this subconscious imagery with all its unclear tribulations  and morphed shadows when we enter the doctors office and our own grief resultant from the suffering for which we are seeking the consultation, makes this image even more distorted.The obligatory effect of this is that it forces our brain to have a very unrealistic expectations from the doctor and to view him not as someone who will help us alleviate our suffering, keeping in mind the practical re...

#respectdoctors ever wondered what will happen if you put the gun on a driver's head and ask him to drive straight, Will it decrease the chances of accident... well, the mood in the doctor community is echoing the same sentiments, frightened, jittery and prone to faulter. The central factor, the spine of doctor patient relationship i.e. trust has suffered a devastating blow, the relationship has been severely breeched. No, I am not dwelling into the causation of this, who caused this breech of trust wether doctors themselves, the government, the media or the public that is not the point of consideration at this time, what is more relevant at this time is to look at the effect and with all the sincerety I possess and all the experience that I have as a practicing doctor, I can say that th...

PUBLIC OUTCRY, MEDIA TRIAL, GOVERNMENT CRUMBLES AND DELIVERS (IN)JUSTICE.

  In what could be termed as an utter sense of political shrewdness to gain cheap mileage or an utter sense of political immaturity to withstand public pressure, the Delhi government cancelled the license' of Max hospital ... Justice on the spot without giving a fair chance to the doctors, to be heard. Look at the parallel, almost 50 children die at BRD Medical college Gorakhpur due to adminstrative failure and the bureaurates and the politicians are left Scott free, government makes no efforts to cancel it's license or resign... such hypocrisy. ..50 children vs a non viable foetus. And consider this, what options did the doctors at Max had, foetus was 22 wks non viable, an informed DNR (do not resuscitate) consent was already taken from the parents, had they resuscitated suc...
