Good morning sunshine
Now let's talk some more about our public health system. The gentlemen running/ working in hospitals in Patiala (an hour's drive from Chandigarh) removed a newborn baby from the incubator (at a Government run hospital) because the father could not pay Rs 200/- (USD 3.5).
 I don't understand what Yannick Nihangaza (23) of Burundi thinking, if he actually instigated the brawl, due to which he's lying in a state of coma in Punjab. He probably didn't know the level of ferocity his attackers would garner owing to his black skin and our Indian abhorrence of it. He probably didn’t watch too much TV which is clogged with ads of how dark-skinned people are losers and the ‘treatment’ of the condition by skin-whitening creams.
