News : In any developed nation , 90 % of total health expenditure is exhausted in prolonging final few days of human life !
When cost of dying . . . exceeds cost of living . . . this world will go nuts !
The current real world experience from India’s five star hospitals indicate, many elderly rich men and women spend their last few days before being buried or burnt .They spent an average of 15 lakh Rs per death . This amounts to the entire “life time” cost of living of majority of Indians .
When human organ donation is considered a greatest philanthropic act, there is one more excellent alternative for those who can’t do it .If only every super rich translate their cost of dying into cost of others living ! many new lives will bloom .
The exorbitant rise in cost of dying in India , is a recent development and reflects the affluence , honor , pride and of course lots of prejudice lack of wisdom ! Instead of filling the deep pockets of greedy corporates why not the rich add new lives ? !
Let all elders with irreversible conditions , who have finished their life , shall die peacefully at home .Why don’t we ( Affluent . . . would be cadavers !) cross sponsor their dying cost to a public health , nutrition or medical fund .
Oh America , . . . Am I right ,? Obama thought it and implementing it too ! I would believe , his health care policy is a small first step in this direction !
