Today , November 2nd 2013 is Deepawali , Nearly 1 billion people celebrate it
Deepawali is an ancient festival of lights , millions of Hindus celebrate It with sanctity.
It is a war on darkness and ignorance .On this day goodness prevailed over evil (Asura)
Unfortunately , In the current versions , it would seem Asura’s also join Deepawali celebrations and enjoy it with more vigor ! which is supposed to eliminate them !
Please ensure , that doesn’t happen . . . at least in your domain !
God is supreme . . . he will never allow the evil to take over the world ! Be a soldier to God’s Army !*For more about this great Hindu festival click on the Link here Deepawali

The current fad called EBM has lots of lacunae. Though evidence based approach is considered the ultimate journey towards truth ,lot of non academic factors contaminate it .In it’s current form , it is difficult to comprehend it.
This is an attempt to decode the mystery of EBM expressed in a simplified lay person’s term .They are the ones from whom we learn medicine. They are our teachers in the true sense.
And . . . the Genius approach to EBM for comparison

The doctrine of modern medicine goes something like this . . .
For most medical problems , there would be a solution. Keep trying . . . till you get it !
*But , just make sure that problem on hand deserves a solution in the first place !
Modern medicine continues to remind us every day , the much hyped solutions often end up in new problems and many times worse than the original problem !
Oh ! what a great a quote ! When I was boasting myself . . . My wife reminded me , this is just plagiarized version of a 2000 year old Hippocratic thought !
But , Hippocrates’ life was not contaminated with drug eluting stents, I pads, and BMWs
If Hippocrates arrives in cath lab today by BMW which sucks 50000 Rs EMI ,Everolimus coated coronary jewellery will definitely tempt him !
You can’t simply compare lives separated by 2000 years
. . . I told my wife !
This is a wonderful and realistic article on the Issue by none other than former Health secretary of the Government of India Ms Sujatha Rao
April-May is carnival time in India . . . cricket carnival. In IPL . . . Indian premier league , eight teams will fight for the cup . IPL 2013 became a smashing hit , until last week when three players were arrested for spot fixing in an over . And for the past 10 days the entire Indian media has gone into manic reaction over it !
Still , the sport was wonderful , the skills shown were extraordinary , and what happened was an aberration just like in any other aspect of life . IPL is perfect mix of sports , business , commerce and some sleaze . Actually in a successful business model , one should actually be surprised if corrupt practices does not occur !
The game of cricket can never be killed by money ! The way the issue was handled by the media and the reactions and public debates for me looks irrelevant . Is it justified ?
We the people and media has much much important things to do in India !
Fixing a Fix . . .
- Whatever happened has been good.
- Whatever happens is good
- Whatever will happen is also good.
