Accompanied to a radio talk show on thyroid diseases. People from nine districts called in. More than 50 lakh listeners tuning in. Incredible to see the role of public broadcasting in increasing health awareness.

Gandhi’s strategy of non-violent protest ‘face-palmed’ WWII-England. Independence was inevitable. Without Gandhi, it would’ve bn delayed by a few years (like in case of Kenya which gained independence in 60s). As for Mandela, it’s been noted that his greatest influence was Nehru

Palliative care revolution in Kerala - every religion, political party and local clubs have a palliative care outreach program. Challenge is to get the doctors to take it up.
