In this blog post, I hope to underscore the importance of meditation over medication, by taking recourse to a few personal experiences and anecdotes. For most of us, medicines are a force of habit. Even if you know a health problem can go away untreated, we run to the nearest clinic and get ourselves checked routinely. A common cold or cough magically transforms into symptoms of swine flu. A mild fever and we begin cursing the mosquitoes around us. Isn't this true in almost every household?
I recently came across this article that had me quite bewildered, to be honest. What is happening to a country like India? It's hardly surprising when we follow in the footsteps of countries like America. With their ignominious FDA unapproved trials, clinical trials in India are being taken for granted at the cost of human lives.
