Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday inaugurated facility for open-heart surgery at the Rajiv Gandhi Super-Specialty Hospital in East Delhi.

The new facilities at the hospital includes, open Heart Surgery, 16 bed ICU, OT Complex, Heptatoblery, Bariatric and Metabolic Surgery Centres and Gastroenterology.


Kejriwal, in his address, congratulated the hospital for the induction of state-of-the-art facilities and said that investing in education and health are the means to becoming a developed nation.

“I am happy that so many facilities are coming up in the Rajiv Gandhi Super-Specialty Hospital. I want to congratulate all the people who have supported us in initiating these facilities for the people of Delhi,” he said.

He also said that no one could have thought that government hospitals could be at par with private ones.

“Back in 2010, GTB hospital was the only hospital with adequate infrastructure and healthcare facilities for the poor. Delhi has witnessed an expansion in health services and many new facilities have been increased at each level.

“Rajiv Gandhi is a state-of-the-art hospital at par with private hospitals. No government could have thought that government hospitals could have facilities equal to a private hospital. The doctors in these hospitals are also efficient,” said Kejriwal.

He also said that huge inflow of patients in government hospitals a big challenge.

“As our services have improved, people are shifting from private hospitals to government hospitals for treatments. Five years ago, there were 3 crores OPDs in total in all the government hospitals, which has now gone up to 6 crores. The expansion of the healthcare sector in this regard remains a big challenge for us with the increase in facilities.”

Hailey said: "I really am lucky to say I'm with someone who is extremely respectful of me"

Super model and actress Hailey Bieber said she is lucky to have a husband like Justin Bieber, refuting rumours of the ace singer not treating her properly. Hailey was speaking at singer Demi Lovato's podcast '4D With Demi Lovato', dailymail.co.uk reported.

Talking about her popstar husband and rumours around their marriage, Hailey said: "I think one of the biggest things is you have to know what the truth is behind everything. You know, there's so many narratives that float around about me, about him, about us together." She addressed the rumours point blank as she said: "There's one big fat narrative that goes around that's like, 'Justin is not nice to her, and that he mistreats her', and I'm just like, it's so far from the truth, and it's the complete and utter opposite."

Hailey went on to set the record straight about Justin, who she married in 2018. She said: "I really am lucky to say I'm with someone who is extremely respectful of me, who makes me feel special every single day. So when I see the opposite of that, I'm just like, 'Huh?' And everybody around who knows us personally would say the same thing." (IANS/ MBI)

Tamil inscriptions of epics, written on palm leaves

Among the Tamil epics written during the Sangam age, only a few survived to this day. Manimegalai is one such. It is written as a sequel to the Sillapadikaram, taking the story forward of Kovalan and Madhavi's daughter, Manimegalai. The Sillapadikaram is about the injustice of the Madurai kingdom in the execution of Kovalan, which turned Kannagi, his wife into a goddess seeking vengeance for her husband's death. Kovalan, before his death, has an affair with a court dancer, Madhavi, and his daughter, Manimegalai, is said to begin a different tradition among the Tamils.

The epic, written by Sattanar, introduces Buddhism to Dravidian culture, something that has been alien to them for years. Manimegalai is the protagonist, who flees constantly from the pursuit of Chola prince Udhayakumara, and tries to lead an ascetic life. Throughout the plot, Buddhist tenets are used to avoid the culmination of a love-story. Manimegalai is believed to be the anti-love story sequel to the Sillapadikaram.

The Covid-19 pandemic could act as an inflection point to shift India's growth model from being consumption driven to investments-led. In its Ecoscope report, Motilal Oswal Financial Services, said: "With Covid-19 hurting India's 'Household' (HH) and 'Government' sectors adversely, the continuity of strong consumption growth is in question."


"On the contrary, with listed companies' financial positions improving and an uptick in household investments in the Real Estate sector (called physical savings), the narrative of investment-led recovery is gaining momentum." The report prescribed that various economic participants - households, governments, listed companies, and unlisted corporates -- to increase their fixed asset investments in the immediate future based on their financial position.
