No Mercy

"They have insurance, and there's no reason that the doctors' judgment should be overrided by a bean counter sitting there in an insurance office,"

This just goes to prove that no matter how people look at United States; as heaven or haven, there is still no place for compassion and humanity over business ideals. You are at the mercy of your insurer when you are ill. Michael Moore, after all, was absolutely spot on with his movie "Sicko". Sad. I hope someone somewhere wakes up before it is all too late.

    Hi shyam,
    Im one of those, who keeps a watch to your blog often.
    As you are an ardent music lover, just wished to share some good music score by Joshua sridhar, in the shankar's film (S Pictures) - Kalloori.
    [Guessed, there'd be a post regarding that if you happen to listen them]

    Hi Shyam,

    I too saw Sicko and was moved by it. People like me are afraid to leave jobs because we are afraid to lose our medical insurance ! That fear alone makes us more sick, I am sure.

    c00lguy: I have not heard it yet. If it is really inspiring me to put up a post, it will happen.

    Ravi: Well said !
