The COVID-19 crisis is almost certain to escalate. The WHO has foreseen that 40-50% of the population will eventually get the infection. Our present medical infrastructure cannot handle a situation when 10% of the populace fall sick - the number of people needing hospital care and the number of deaths is unimaginable. In that event, we need alternative infrastructure that can cater to the mildly ill- who comprise up to 85% of those infected.
The 1969 batch celebrated a memorable Golden Jubilee Reunion this year. The two day event was their first reunion in 50 years.
The batch comprised of only 18 members, out of which only 15 were reachable. But that did not stop them from coming together and reminiscing in memories along with others who studied along with them in the 1962-69 period.
It was indeed a moment of joy blanketed in tender memories from a time that can not be forgotten.
