Harbinger of things to come

The MCI and all other health regulatory bodies will soon be scrapped and a new regulatory parent body, the National Council for Human Resources in Health will replace them. Read about it in the URL above.

The MCI has been a hotbed of corruption. Invested with regulatory power, it has abused that power and spawned a generation of “donation doctors”, who have in turn soiled the practice of medicine with avarice. They have bartered and sold  the standards of the profession in the marketplace. This has in turn replaced trust with suspicion in the mind of society. Indeed the MCI has much to answer for.

I hope this new step will be the harbinger of change and it will not shrink from exorcising the current ill humour from our profession.

Where is your faith?

Luke 5:17- 20

The palsied man lowered from the roof. A classic example of

Hold close

The days of the trial and crucifixion of Jesus are shrouded in despair, and death and suffering. All of us face these emotions, and quite of few have felt hemmed in by these ringwraiths of hell. Jesus manifested his glory in the grist of the mill, the centurion presiding over his death himself acknowledging “Surely this was the Son of God”. To manifest his nature in the throes of agony has to be from God. Any other alternative is from our flesh and will not manifest His glory. Press close while being pressed in. Salvation and resurrection come in ways we cannot imagine. Not one of his disciples could fathom or believe it when it happened despite being forewarned by Jesus himself that this would be. How we distance ourselves from Him, even when we stand next to Him. Hold close. The end may be a new beginning.

A frontal craniotomy was done and the hematoma evacuated. The patient was ventilated and later transferred to a tertiary hospital where he was succesfully extubated. He recovered consciousness.

A young Nepali male came with the history of turning in bed with an erection when he heard a snapping sound. He had ruptured his corpora cavernosa. His urethra was also found ruptured. A surgery to repair this would require him to travel to Chandigarh or Ludhiana, 8 hours away. We were able to fix this problem for him and he went home after an uneventful postoperative period.

Our boast

Posted by: Philip Alex | Posted on: July 5th, 2009 | 0 Comments

The world structure as we know it is built on self glorification. All our systems, regardless of the field are built on building up oneself. The kernel of rebellion is right here. Following god would have to shake the very foundation of established structures, whose philosophy often creeps unwittingly into the fibre of our being. A very conscious choice has to be exerted to go against the grain, and re establish the right order of things, in which is His delight. The very struggle to know and understand, fundamental distinctions of the human race lead to towers of Babylon that stand in open defiance to the Lords order of things. Yet, the tower never started of with that intention. The process of knowledge and discovery will deviate unless trained by the undergirding to consciously always boast in the Lord. Every area of our lives, internal and external has to follow this runner at the risk of becoming a creeping vine that strays away from the source of all life. Can we truly say all our discoveries, and all our aspirations are rooted in Him? Can we say our every attempt at life has this undergirding? Help me to know and understand this. Let us be able to say “We boast in the Lord”.
