After midnight we commonly see youngster racing their vehicles endangering not only self but also others who are on road. Drinking alcohol above permissible levels reduces judgement and also can lead to rash driving. In spite of the strict rules, we have seen how a top Bollywood star got acquitted from supreme court recently. Law seems to be different for different people.

Most doctors aspire that their kids should also become doctors like them. We see many families with full of doctors, running across many generations. This extends even further i.e. their son or daughter should get married to a doctor only. … Read the rest

As a cardiologist, I am very happy that stent prices have been reduced.
With price reduction, I should be able to treat more patients. But, in reality, this is becoming counter-productive.
For the poor patients, stents will become more expensive and for affording patients newer stents will not be available in Indian market. Only the party which will get benefit by this new rule are medical insurance companies.
On the surface, this article appears insane please read this article completely to know ground reality.
