Howeverlabelling this strain a superbug is inaccuratewhen there are many other strains of bacteria resistant to most new-generation antibiotics that are causing as muchif not more harm Multi-drug-resistant bacteria are bound to develop wherever there is indiscriminate use of antibioticseven in the developed world Further labelling it the New Delhi gene and using this to caution medical tourists from seeking treatment in India is irresponsible and misguided In recent yearsIndia has become a preferred destination for medical tourism because patients in the West know that they can get a standard of healthcare equal to any hospital in their own countriesat a fraction of the cost Pharmaceutical companies and for-profit hospitals in the West see this as a threatbut make no attempt to reduce the cost of healthcare or improve its accessibility New scientific discoveries must be hailedbut to use science as way to discredit a particular country is deplorable I have been in the medical profession for over 35 years and am familiar with the way medicine is practiced in different parts of the world I now see a change in the way some companies perceive medical research They use it as a means to promote one line of treatment over conventional linesfor maximising profits This discredits the entire medical profession and makes the patient mistrust allopathic treatment In order to protect the interests of its peoplethe government passes stronger regulations that stifle further development and research If we could use medical research in a responsible and unbiased fashion and embrace its purpose of alleviating suffering and not maximising profitsour patients will reinstate their faith in doctors The writer is a cardiac surgeon and founder of the Narayana

minute I started working on this story I knew the world of ‘Baahubali’ can’t be encompassed into a film or two simply because there’s so much more to tell so many backstories to share” Related News Ever wondered what the formative years of characters Baahubali and Bhallala Deva were like or who were their best friends Filmmaker SS Rajamouli promises answers to many such questions as one of India’s biggest motion pictures “Baahubali” is set to be released as graphic novels games and animated series Arka Mediaworks the makers of the film and character entertainment company Graphic India have teamed up to take the story beyond the movie “From the minute I started working on this story I knew the world of ‘Baahubali’ can’t be encompassed into a film or two simply because there’s so much more to tell so many backstories to share What we managed to showcase in the film was just a chip of the iceberg” Rajamouli told IANS in an exclusive interview The story of “Baahubali” can run into thousands of pages according to the director (Read:Animal rights campaigner seeks action against Baahubali team) “Take the story of the character Baahubali for instance We have everything that happened in his life every minute detail from birth to death In the film however what you see is just a few fleeting shots from the time he was a toddler to when he was a 27-year-old” he said Using the transmedium (technique of telling a story across multiple platforms with the help of digital technology) he wants to take the remaining story of “Baahubali” to larger audiences with the expertise of Graphic India “Film medium has limited space and we couldn’t use that to share everything we wanted to There’s a lot of intrigue action and adventure in the life of all the characters of the film which we could include when we release the story as a comic animated series or a game” he added Rajamouli believes “Baahubali” will create the market for comics in the country which is very less in percentage vis-a-vis the west “The global character entertainment industry is worth over $100 billion and countries like Korea Japan and the US are flourishing in this business Yet we the country with the largest human population constitute only the smallest piece of this pie” Rajamouli rued “Instead of looking at India as not being a big comic market let’s try and understand why there’s no market and it’s because there are no good comics that can match international standards A market of over 1 billion people is open for us and waiting to be tapped Isn’t that a good sign” he asked How will the comics appeal to the masses Rajamouli’s core audience “The general perception is that the front benchers and uneducated audiences in a theatre constitute the masses while those seated in the balcony and pay more for a ticket form the elite class This is just a misconception because take it from me the guy who spends for a reclining seat ticket may enjoy commercial films as much as anybody or even more” he said “If ‘Baahubali’ appealed to the masses across all types of people and demographics I don’t see why people won’t like to know more about the world of Baahubali through a different medium provided they are offered a world-class product I’m sure they will buy it” he added The first comic experience Rajamouli assures can be expected in June or July followed by the animated series closer
