When The Drugs Don't Work by Anirban Mahapatra

 "The age of antibiotics is ending. If we don’t act now, we will soon find ourselves in a world where minor injuries and common infections are deadly once more."

📚 Just finished reading "When The Drugs Don't Work" by Anirban Mahapatra, and it was an eye-opener! Reminded me of another great book Bottle of Lies. Different context, similar recupersesion.

Have you ever wondered what would happen if antibiotics stopped working? 🤔💊

The book is a sobering exploration of the crisis of antibiotic resistance. It takes readers through the history of antibiotics, their revolutionary impact on medicine, and the alarming rise of antibiotic-resistant superbugs. 

Mahapatra's narrative sheds light on a future where common infections could once again become deadly. This is a read for anyone concerned about the future of healthcare and the steps we must take to prevent a global health catastrophe. 

ANIRBAN MAHAPATRA is the author of the book, COVID-19: Separating Fact from Fiction, and writes a popular science column for the Hindustan Times.

Does India Need communal parties?

I think, it was Tan's post on this blog itself, Republic Day Event, where this question was raised. My answer. YES. we need communal parties even in Independent, Secular India. Now let me take you, back to events before 1947. When India was a colony of the British Empire. The congress party, in its attempt to gain momentum for the independence movement, heavily used Hinduism, an example of which is the famous Ganesh Utsav held in Mumbai every year. Who complains? No one. But at that time, due to various policies of the congress, Muslims started feeling alienated. Jinnah, in these times, got stubborn over the need of Pakistan and he did find a lot of supporters. Congress, up till late 1940's never got bothered by it. And why should we? Who complains? No one. But there were repercussions. The way people were butchered and slaughtered during that brief time when India got partitioned, was even worse than a civil war scenario. All in the name of religion. And there indeed
