  1. I dont know abt u guys but the ICU isolation ward is like sh** hole…belive me….i have pictures of the washroom with no glass windows, the washroom wall is full of mould….and the access to the drain pipes is from the room within where rats and rodents can easily come in…is this called ICU…the wash basin is full of rust marks from the tap…Now mould and ICU…come on guys…u guys must be nuts to praise that hospital. These pics were all taken in oct 2010…Uday…u want these pics i can send u copies…of it let me know. So the real picture can come out. Yes my wife was admitted there and she died. I am not sure if the cleaniness played part in her death.

  2. KLEs is doing a silent revolution of sorts. They are marvels without being too much in limelight. Their focus on rural areas makes it even more laudable.
