At ICUs, armed with a battery of gadgets, men battle fiercely for life, clinging to the faintest signs of hope and pushing science and skill to their extreme limits.

Let me start by nailing the canard that the medical community is somehow allergic to the concept of prescribing medicines generically rather than by their brand names…that is, for example, prescribing Fexofenadine instead of ‘Allegra' 'Agimfast' or `Alafree’. This is pure fiction far removed from reality; fact is that an overwhelming majority of doctors are in support of this laudable idea and believe that it ought to be practiced as a rule in India as indeed it is in much of the developed world, in line with best global practices.

Even as global social media bellwether Facebook talks of a technology that may turn human thoughts into written words with no physical intervention, it is time to revisit the exotic space of mind-reading. For centuries humans have sought to read minds either with supra-natural mental powers, acquired through ages of tapasya, or very advanced technologies, with varying degrees of success. What is known to science currently is simple: thought is the result of a mind-boggling process of information gathering, processing, analysis and interpretation that involves coordinated action of presumably millions of neurons residing in various parts of the brain.

Late on Friday, pro-Kannada activists with tacit support of the state government announced that Bangalore would remain ‘bandh’ the next day to protest the Mahadayi River tribunal’s interim order, although it is common knowledge that bandhs have seldom served to alter the course of judicial thought. Alongside, the government stated that despite the bandh, which might cripple transportation and many other services in the city, hospitals could continue to run as usual! Such a statement could be attributed only to a lack of understanding of hospitals. Nobody is disputing the cause here; it is only the means that is in question.

Every time I travel abroad I feel with growing anguish that with each passing day our standards are slipping. The gap between us and the developed world is large and (unfortunately) appears to be widening all the time. At this rate I am afraid we are destined to remain stuck with the moniker of ‘underdeveloped nation’ forever.

    Nothing to say, because we the people of India do not fulfill our duty, even we don't want to spread such type of awareness. Thank

The brain is a marvel of nature. Nestled inside its protective embrace are among the most precious tissues of the living world that enable special talents and functions, connecting us seamlessly both to internal needs and external demands. The brain integrates a two-dimensional body, a three-dimensional mind and a multi-dimensional universe into an experience called life that, at a metaphysical level, is nothing but consciousness—a finite phenomenon with infinite abilities.

    Nice post

Securing the health of a nation and of its people is inarguably the responsibility of a state, as inarguably as securing its territorial integrity. But ensuring the health of 125 crore people, most of them poor people living in wretched conditions, is a mind boggling task and can be beyond the powers of even the mightiest and best-oiled government machines. Poor nations like India have no chance of doing this--unless they begin to think smart and find innovative ways to effectively harness their infinite individual human resources for collective social good.
