The real critics are always upright and bold. They are the ones who are quick to forewarn the wrong acts by anyone which might be detrimental to the citizens/society. So, the prompt denouncement by the former Chief Minister of Meghalaya – Dr. Mukul Sangma against the outrageous decision made by the Delhi Chief Minister – Arvind Kejriwal this Sunday is worthwhile. According to this shocking announcement by the Delhi Chief Minister, the non-residents of Delhi will not be allowed to be admitted to any private or Government hospitals, except a few Central Government, in the capital town of INDIA.

In this, the former Chief Minister of Meghalaya Dr. Mukul Sangma wasted no time to express his strong disapproval through his facebook post — “Denying citizens of the country the right to have access to hospital beds of private hospitals of Delhi by Delhi government is ridiculous, unacceptable and sets a very dangerous precedence in our health delivery system – against all medical ethics which can dislocate the robust referral system that has withstood the test of time.” Yes, this policy can certainly cause unprecedented hardships to the non-resident Delhiites if ever implemented.

The former Chief Minister of Meghalaya Dr. Mukul Sangma , expressed his strong disapproval through his facebook post.

For instance, what might be the consequences in case 50-each people from other states of the country such as — Meghalaya or Manipur/Assam/Mizoram living in various parts of Delhi suddenly suffer from serious illnesses or accidental injuries or Covid-19? Given the enormous difficulty in getting the beds in the Central Government hospitals, the “non-resident” patients without the medical treatment could land up in a nightmarish situation leading to not only their complete deterioration of health but they might succumb to the sicknesses. The policy that entails the death of the citizens of the country is not just unconstitutional, it’s diabolically inhuman.

This policy can certainly cause unprecedented hardships to the non-resident Delhiites if ever implemented.

Again, just imagine what might happen if the “same policy” will be adopted by the administrations of the big cities like Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Pune, Lucknow, Bangalore, et al. The majority of our student communities or various professional experts/employees have settled in the various cities in the country and they are non-residents of those particular cities. Thank God, the Lieutenant Governor of New Delhi has already denounced the decision by the Delhi Chief Minister. Of course, such a policy is totally absurd. So, one should vehemently oppose the policies that are “detrimental” to the non-residents in any of the cities/states in the country. The constitution always guarantees the right to the good health care of all citizens regardless of their languages, cultures, castes and creeds.

An illustration of the nursery rhyme, Jack and Jill

A hilarious rhyme that children often chant cheerily while jumping around, Jack and Jill is another example of the dark history covered up in light-hearted rhyme. Instead of England though, this is a rhyme that sheds light on the history of France.

Unlike other rhymes, the rhyme is part fiction and part history, since only the first two lines can be taken as an allusion to the past.
