My friend Asoka Jayawardena in New Jersey who often despatches vital information on health matters sent me an interesting brief on 'Moringa' (Murunga) with a request to write an article on the subject and, if possible, to get it published in a Sinhala newspaper, as the advantages of a Sinhala publication would be far more beneficial to the average Sri Lankan reader.

Awesome Public Response

Wednesday, 12 Apr 2017 15:06

Only when something comes up in print or exposed on television, people who have been affected by the highlighted topic(s) will emerge out of their shells to either join public protests or respond with their type of experiences (as feedbacks). The Saturday Column on 11 March, in Ceylon Today, on "Bogus Pharmacists galore" managed to bring out mind-blowing responses from various members of the public with their own personal experiences; some even with good advice to improve the pathetic situation of bogus pharmacies where the health of innocent and naïve people has been affected by wrong medicine given by unqualified 'pharmacists.'

A Burger boy arrived, about 25 years ago, at David Jansze's doorstep looking out for any type of work, showing signs of malnutrition and prominent burn scars on his face and body. Tyrone Bottoni hailed from a middle class family. His father was an engine driver at the CGR, married before and had some children, but the two families had no amity with each other.

Appalling Situation

Friday, 17 Mar 2017 15:21

During a visit to a local renowned supermarket last week I approached the 'pharmacist' to make enquires about an allopathic cardiac drug (RanCV500). A guy who did not appear to have any knowledge of the inquired medicine questioned me as to what the drug was prescribed for? Quite bemused by the answer coming out of the so-called 'pharmacist' I ventured to ask him whether he was a qualified pharmacist, to which his answer was affirmative. I was not satisfied, and summoned the store manager to his presence and enquired whether the employee was a qualified pharmacist. The manager became tongue-tied, which convinced me that the pharmacist in this particular supermarket was an 'ordinary cashier.'

English novelist, essayist, journalist and critic, George Orwell expressed his views on social injustice and tyranny in 1948, as follows: "The Party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears, and it was their final, most essential command!" Sometimes one wonders whether such statements congruently fit into our current political climate!

Insurance

Monday, 02 Jan 2017 11:18

Insurance generally encompasses a collection of funds from the insured individuals and units to pay for the losses. Therefore, every insurance entity becomes protected from risk factor for a fee. To guard against any possibility of any peril, various clauses are incorporated by insurance companies into the policy, which at times act favourably towards the insurance companies and protect them from the law. It is, therefore, extremely essential to read the conditions in the small print before one commits to an insurance policy. In insurance ultimate good faith and a bond of honesty bind the insured and the insurer.
