While we go on a war mode to fight CORONA VIRUS all over the world, it is definitely a time to learn as well.
In plastic surgeon's language, which I am, while we deal with the disease process, we plan many steps of Reconstructions ahead.
So while the whole world suffers and debates on how to fight this dreadful disease, there is an opportunity for the people at large to see what went wrong and how to learn. Of course, sadly, in the meantime, many World Citizens would have suffered irreversibly. And if the disease is a Pandemic, the blame should be borne by the world leaders, who failed the world citizens and of course also on the civil societies of the democracies, whose common sense failed them in the most required time.
Without going into too much scientific debate, there are a few glaring findings which we know since almost 3 months or maybe more. For 3 months, the data is in Public domain.
For those, who are at the level of policymaking, secret services must have informed them about the dangerous nature of the virus. It is here I and many others like me have am Issue.
The COVID 19 Viral outbreak was detected in Wuhan, China in Mid December 2019. The Whole World Media and the Social media were full of stories from Wuhan. Various theories were floated for the outbreak and there were primetime debates on it on Televisions. Should we believe that the debates in the media were as a farce as the government and civil society debates?
The cloud of danger to mankind was looming on us and we were busy settling personal scores, just looking the other side that we are safe.
So much of Energy and money was lost in the Iran crisis and Syria crisis. Stories of America pulling out of Afghanistan, the India Pak debates, the NCR, NPR crisis and many other issues pertaining to each country.
But did anyone see the United Nations debate on how to curtail the virus only to China? Did SAARC or NATO or G-20 have this on the agenda? A big NO..
Sad, Isn’t it? The whole world thinking that the virus will not enter their countries and be restricted to China!
In the era of Globalization, when the World is a small village with so much of international travel in all walks of life, was it not utterly foolish to just wait and watch! Why on Earth, the think-tanks be not held accountable for not finding a global strategy and global synergy?
Why could they not imagine the consequence of viral spread globally in terms of loss of life and loss to the economy? You don't need any figures to debate this fact. It is Pennywise and Pound Foolish.
A planned closure of borders in Early or Mid January would have prevented all the mayhem which the world is witnessing today.
In the medical world, it will be called as a grievous injury. It is making an elective situation into a life saving situation just by sheer neglect of the world leadership.
In the military warfare, we have developed anti-missile systems to alert us of the enemy attack a few minutes to hours before. In this window, we are geared to save ourselves! And. here, we had a warning of months, not days! Ironical! Sad!
I may be politically wrong. But I am not morally wrong to point it now, because I need to be truthful to myself, my nation and my human race.
There are but some positives out of any sad episode. One such positive effect apart from the effect on the environment and development of faith in the almighty is the acknowledgment of the role which the Healthcare workers play in any society.
The whole world is seeing how the healthcare workers have risen on to the occasion and are on the frontline. They are scared, but still not leaving the battleground. Their families are scared of them and themselves. The healthcare workers are under tremendous pressure from their loved ones, not to actively participate. They are scared because there is a shortage of Personal protective Equipment. The resident doctors have to fight for the bare minimum protection like a good Protective mask. But they are there in the battleground! In some countries, the government takes the decision of not giving ventilators to very sick. But at the ground level, the decision has to be implemented by the doctors! What an emotional turmoil it must be creating in their minds, is for anybody to imagine. To see dead bodies all around you, plenty in numbers can be a shattering experience for anyone! And there they are, just focused on saving each possible life.
Lets learn lessons today. Lets not ever make this mistake again.
Life is to live. To live means to be able to Live. This is directly proportional to the adequacy of the healthcare system. There should not be any complacency in it. I guess everyone from Rich to Poor understands the value of life now. Governments, please spend on Health care, the best healthcare systems, the perfect health care you can think of. Spend time, money, energy on it. Have debates and deliberations on it. Don't give lame excuses for poor healthcare systems. Spend 1O% 20% ,25% of the GDP on healthcare. Get the best minds to come to the Medical profession. Pay them the best. In fact, more than the best, so that they don’t have to worry about anything else. Stop all medical colleges imparting the poor quality of education. Fail the nondeserving candidates. So whatever. Just get the best brains to be in this life-saving department.
Society, please learn to respect the healthcare workers. Don’t beat them black and blue, just because you are emotionally disturbed because of an adverse outcome. Don’t perpetuate Violence in Doctors and Hospitals just because you have a grievance. There are forums for it.
Humanity, Learn to respect the health care workers, not only Doctors but the Nurses, the ward boys, the sweepers and anybody remotely connected with Health. Because you are there, till you are there.
The society must learn to identify its priorities and learn to respect Education and Wisdom over Money.
Teachers, Soldiers, Scientists, Researchers, policemen, 4th-grade workers need to be acknowledged and brought back in the realm of respect. If Communism is not good, neither is a materialistic Capitalism.
We must learn to Endorse the Middle Path of Gautam Buddha and Bhagwaan Mahavir.
Leaders of the World, Time to introspect!
Intellectuals of the World, Time to introspect!
World Media, Time to introspect!

I am very pleased and impressed with your services. I went for consultations with multiple doctors before I started thinking of Liposuction and chose La Tranformatione, because they were the most knowledgeable & In my Budget, Also the Clinic had the friendliest and most comfortable environment. I would strongly recommend this clinic to anyone seeking Cosmetic Procedures.
La Tranformatione Cosmetic Clinic and their team gave me a large detailed amount of info and facts. They were extremely helpful and extremely eager to provide answers. I have now had got the very fine result with the help of La Tranformatione Cosmetic Clinic. I have never been treated more kindly anywhere ! The team of Doctor are amazing people. I love coming in to see them!.
I have been to so many doctors for consultation, but their charges are making me avoid the Liposuction, I was thinking to drop the idea of Liposuction but than through some internet search for budget liposuction, i came across with La Tranformatione Cosmetic Clinic. and they have done consultation without any charge and also done the liposuction in my Budget only. Thanks for that.
I was looking for Best treatment from long time and search on the net where i find La Tranformatione Cosmetic Clinic, n get in touch with them, I have done Butt Implant and I am more than satisfy with the result and i got my desire look.
I met Dr. Anshuman Manaswi as a reliabble and respobsible doctor, also because of his experience as a surgeon the planned result of the procedure was archieved. From the outset fees and charges were transparent, in other words no hidden cost afterward, I am very content with the whole rocess - so i can recommend him to anyone.
