Why this blog?

The nascent and fresh minds of students are so creatively inclined that they have the ability to bring into being a universe of their own. They are little tyros who would, with time, unfold into verves, momentum or sensations of various creative dimensions. A chalk sculptor, a clay artist, an amateur painter of Madhubani, Warli, a dabbler of still life, a budding poet, a tenderfoot writer or a fledgling lyricist – one gets all varieties of creatively-aligned students covered in a seemingly dilettantish peel. We at Shishukunj aspire to provide a humble platform to all such potentials to smatter around and mature into the perfection that they are seeking to epitomize or become! This blog is thus an endeavor that would allow all Shishyans to just play around with their latent artistic caliber and enjoy the bliss of a “BRAVO” from known and unknown quarters.

Increased Price, Decreased Life

Dhruv Rajoria, Class X D

In today’s world, the only difference between life and death has become affordability of health care services. With the recent regulation of the price of stents, prices of healthcare services has again come to light and has become a heated topic for debate.
Not only stents but from medicines to pathological tests to a normal operation, every healthcare service is out of the reach of even a middle class family. Doctors also usually prescribe medicines which are expensive even if medicines of the same composition are available at cheaper rates in the market. Often companies pay the doctors to prescribe their brand of medicines. The final result is a helpless patient and well off doctors and pharma companies.

Our system and civic authorities need to keep a constant check on this. Chemists can inform citizens about the cheaper variants of the same medicine. Setting up a committee of experienced doctors along with high officials for regulation of price of medicines will also help. Finally, it is the people who must become aware and raise their voice against highly priced medicines.
