This blog has three stories and a couple of statements that may save your life and career.
First Story: Poonam

Poonam had passed her MBBS from Shimla about 11 years back and had married an Army officer. Later she had also joined the Army Medical Corps.

She was working at the local military hospital, which was being inspected by the GOC today. Poonam was proud to be working as MI Room (now called the Casualty) incharge and would be introduced to the GOC in the introduction parade.

Current COVID-19 pandemic has pushed into relative obscurity, another pandemic that has been raging for over one decade. By confining people to their homes, COVID-19 may make that pandemic of obesity worse. So any simple treatment that promises a dramatic benefit, evokes great excitement.
