  • 1. Issue: 7Volume: 34 Date: 20.08.2014 Pages: 4 Jatasya hi dhruvo mrtyur.... I start my Editorial first by expressing my deep condolences to the mothers of our President and the President elect who passed away in less than10daysinterval.Mysonoutofcuriosityaskedthisquestion-howcome Papa people are dying in Rotary so frequently? For a second I felt what he said is right. Almost at an average of one per month for the last 6 months or so we are losing elderly members of our families. But that is natural. Most of us are in late 4os or early 5os. Naturally our parents will be in eighties. So they make way for us to occupy their positions! And it is quite expected to hear such news. But for the individual family members, loss is unbearable. Being in medical field I come across this situation quite frequently and when we declare the inevitable to the family members the reactions from the other side can be varied and sometimes unexpected and inconsolable. But everytimeIconsolemyselfbyremberingthisgreatversefromBhagavadgita. jatasyahidhruvomrtyurdhruvamjanmamrtasyaca tasmadapariharye'rthenatvamsocitumarhasi For one who has taken birth, death is certain and for one who has died, birth is certain. Therefore in an inevitable situation understanding should prevail. Next significant event that happened last week was the mesmerizing speech of our PM NaMo on Independence Day. I am sure you have heard and read enough about it in the media. Who can dare to speak about toilets from the Red fort? 1 hour and 10 minutes of pure extempore filled with punch lines was truly amazing. Whether he delivers or not is secondary but that speech truly inspires. Those of you who missedpleasewatchitonYouTube.Itisreallyworthit.
