Healthcare for India

My connection with the subjects of “health & sickness” started fairly early in my life. In our group of friends who grew up together studying from 5th standard to professional courses, majority of us became engineers & doctors. But the rest became … professors, chartered accountants & auditors, and some others as advocates. Probably I was the only odd one out – who was interested in medical sciences as much, while pursuing engineering and finally qualifying as an “electrical & electronics” engineer. My subsequent employment with GE-USA (working in India) as a marketing engineer for their electromedical equipments, deepened my connection with the medical world of diagnosis, treatment, doctors & hospitals (both rural & urban)….while haunting me for the rest of my life till now, irrespective of my main field of work for a living, in the varied engineering industries. My interest in any & all subjects with some intermittent & accidental incidents, forced me to study alternate medicine, holistic medicine, Indian system of medicine (AYUSH) etc. I think that, this long introduction of my background may help the reader of this article to view it in its own perspective, while evaluating its contents.

The Difference between Ethics & Morals

MORALS
These are basically parts of a “common agreement” of DOs & DONTs among a group of people to minimize conflicts and establish “Harmony”. The group can be very small to very big … expanding from a small village to a state, a nation, a continent of the whole world. Morality is the foundation of “Man Made Laws” for the legal systems – providing for rewards, awards & punishments. Morality will vary with varying choices of people in different locations at different times with different circumstances & environments. Some conditions of morality may be common across the world but many may not be.
Morality also forms the foundation of “Culture” of a society and thus culture & laws often get intermingled in that society, influencing the administration & governance as a whole. Morality defines the good & bad conduct in each particular society covering food & dressing, education & training, professions & careers, social & community behaviour. Monogamy & polygamy, matriarchy & patriarchy, gender differentiation for awards, rewards & punishments, distribution of duties & responsibility among the genders etc are all parts of cultural morality extending to legalities. Morals can be changed by those who are part of that community through common agreement. Religions also play an important role in defining the morality in any society as any religion is a common agreement dictated by common culture, belief & faith. But morals are “Never Universal”.

Understanding “The Soul”

If you roll a “Powerful Magnet” in a heap of “Iron Dust” what will you see? A huge quantum of “iron dust” collecting & sticking to the magnet all round and hiding the magnet totally from our view. We cannot even imagine the original shape of the magnet, till the dust is totally removed to expose the magnet hidden in the core of that mass. The magnetism of that “core magnet” pervades & permeates to make every particle of the iron dust an individual live magnet, to hold together the surrounding iron dust particles. The “Cells” that make up our body are exactly like that iron dust. The magnetism of “This Magnet” owning & operating the body is what we call “The Soul”. Every cell is a live individual as long as the soul is present. The moment it vacates the body of cells, the cells disintegrate into 5 separate elements (Earth, Water, Fire, Gas & Space) and go back to their respective abodes from where they were collected to form the body.

Spiritualism is fully advanced “Science & Technology”

We have seen how technology has been transforming every sphere in our lives in the last 100 years! As we advance … further advancement is progressively getting accelerated … taking lesser time for quantum jumps! Where will this end finally? We will end in “Spirituality”. How?

Computer sizes have been shrinking. What would have occupied a building will now fit into our palm! As miniaturization continues, things are becoming smaller and smaller – but with their abilities growing bigger and bigger! We are now talking of Nano-technology (molecular structural manipulation towards specific functionality). It will then move towards atoms and then sub-atomic particles and finally through allotropic forms of pure energy to – “Pure Consciousness”. Read the rest of this entry
