Is it affordable?

I completely agree with what Dr.Mankad has written.
Forget about IT, software companies, 8% GDP, BPO....etc.
Can an ordinary middle class Indian or poor Indian get decent medical treatment for a reasonable'' price?

                                                                                                     Meera Joshi

FDI needed in healthcare
Although I agree the infrastructure in India is inadequate for doctors, let us not delude ourselves into thinking that the future is bright in the western countries. Let me concentrate on the present situation in UK. There are lots of Indian doctors who have passed PLAB but are yet to find jobs.

Doing medicine...
I completely agree with Dr. Kshitij. Doing medicine and that too from Bangalore I totally know the state of health care and what the government is doing for its doctors.                                                                            Nitya Prabhakaran  

Words said so farů
Dr. Kshitij Mankad (original author) MRCP FRCR (I) MBA 
It was heartening to note that my article succeeded in generating some public opinion and debate. Reading the variously hued responses from all parts of the world surely brings forth to public view extreme concerns.

'Medical consumerism' in India .
Dr Mankad talks of 'medical consumerism' in India . I am from Bangalore and
live in the U S now and I can say this is worse in the U S . 40 million Americans are uninsured! 
                                                                        Anand Doddaballapur

Regarding the problem that graduating doctors are facing today
    Regarding the problem that graduating doctors are facing today is something of a grave concern. Everybody wants doctors to be service minded but what I do not understand is when he or she herself ...
                                                                        Dr Praveen Kaudlay
A silly Idea
Prof B.V.Balakrishna is confused and completely out of context. He is fixated about the opinion that the West thinks highly of itself. For a person who has not worked in the west, trained in the west and training people in the west, this statement of his is silly.
                                                                             S indhaghatta V

An obvious fall-out of this is the Indian people becoming guinea-pigs

This is in response to Dr. Kshitj Mankad's letter and his subsequent responses. While obviously not agreeing with everything that has been 
said, I need to stress that the biggest loser of a frustrated and dis-illusioned medical community will quite obviously be the Indian people.
                                                                             Dr. C S Rajan

After struggling all our life

  
       I
completely agree with Dr. Kshitij. Doing medicine and that too from Bangalore I totally know the state of health care and what the government is doing for its doctors.
