The Story Of Lalitha – plea for help

I first met Lalitha in 1998 when she was admitted to my ward (No 8) at the Sri Jayewardenapura General Hospital. She was 36 years of age, very poor, unmarried and living with her mother. Lalitha was suffering from a very serious condition of her gullet (the passage that takes food from the throat to the stomach). Her gullet had become very narrow and as such she could not swallow any food leading to wasting of her body and malnutrition. If the problem was not corrected, death would have been inevitable. I decided to operate on Lalitha to give her a new lease of life.

Smartphones: there’s still room for making them smarter!

Smartphones did utterly transform our lives within a decade in many different ways. Unlike old, humble, land phone, it, when abused, has the potential to make the closer ones more distant and the more distant ones closer in human relationships, while leaving the complementing phase at the hands of popular social networks.

Fox News show host Laura Ingraham announced on her show late Friday that she is taking next week off. I think it was a wise decision given the fact that almost a dozen advertisers have dropped her show after the chauvinist talk show host mocked David Hogg, 17, a teenage survivor of the Florida school massacre, on Twitter on Wednesday, accusing him of whining about being rejected by four colleges to which he had applied.
