No New Posts Desi Dating/Mating and Marriage
No one that I know of anticipated the crisis that is now looming over our community. When they were growing up we were confident that with proper education and successful career our beautiful children would have no difficulty finding a suitable spouse whenever they were ready. They for the most part kept their end of the bargain. However we are not able to able to come up with even semi decent prospect for them who are willing to commit. Our community, by and large is behaving like a deer caught in the headlight.

Some things have gone horribly wrong. Just as we say that "diabetes is a silent killer" - gives you few if any indication of something is wrong while damaging every system in the body for a long time. This inability of our next generation to find a suitable mate in time and make the transition to the next phase of life will severely damage our future.

Unlike diabetes the solution (early detection and effective management) does not lie in a laboratory. It is time for our community to get a wake up call. Time to rid ourselves for those outdated concepts that are holding us back, time to think out of the box, time to stop blame game and look for what can be done.

No New Posts Swadhyayees ready to be independent
Vagar Taluko near Bharuch has shown the leadership by separating the good activities of Swadhyay (which they loved) and corrupt Central Command from Didi & Party.

They celebrated Manushya Gaurav Din - celebrating 96th birthday but mindful that Yogeshwar is still the God. You see Yogeshwar in all the pictures - Dada in some and Didi in none!

It is about time different Krutisheel get in action to save the movement.

No New Posts Jayant Patel an easy Scapegoat for a Dysfunctional System
Dr. Jayant Patel has been painted as one of the worst human being by politicians and media in Australia. He has been named "Dr. Death" A book has been written about him, a movie may be in works. Australians want him back so he can face the justice.
But as you read carefully you wonder, is he really this big monster? Do Australians want justice or revenge? Are they looking for real villain or they want a scapegoat?

First ever Lad Professional Convention will be held at The Grand Hyatt, New York, NY on July 27 & July 28, 2007. I will be addressing these professionals on July 28, 2007.

Now, every other group like Jains, Telugu, Leuva Patel, Charotar Patel (you name it and they are doing it) have been meeting for decades or more now. Why the group that boasts Dhirubhai Ambani and Gandhiji as one of their own is so far behind is a mystery to me. I am going to try to find out.

If you are a LAD youth I strongly recommend come join us for this historic event. The committee promises me that this will be a weekend to remember! Register early and spread the word.

No New Posts Dr. Ramnath - Medical Error or Criminal Act?
Here is an unfortunate turn of events. Priya Ramnath, a junior resident is confronted with a patient in septic shock. She allegedly gave higher than prescribed dose of life saving medication. Now 10 years later she is put behind bar - away from her family and two young children, judge denies the bail - is this justice or intimidation. Once we make the medical errors a manslaughter would it turn away talented people from our profession. Because everyone knows that inspite of the best of education training and intentions the mistakes do happen. Do you know when you join the medical school that you may spend some time in the jail?
