    Sad.May his soul rest in peace.Heartfelt sympathy to the family. I think in India still many heartattack patients are not getting proper treatment in time .I mean when one gets heartattack on the way ,he will be immediately made arrangements to transfer to a hospital.But not given on spot required heart massage first ,or call a doctor to give treatment first and then trasfer.Because transfer him causes a lot of time till he reaches hospital ,first admit ,examin ,etc.causes,waste time ,Meantime the needed oxygen supply to brain or heart will make irrepairable problem .Second then they transfer a patient to another place,during transfer ,again heart suffers,Never transfer a patient with heartattack when acute stage.unless a ambulence with oxygen and doctor is present.Many of our hospitals in citys are not equipped with (In villages too)such emergencies treatment.why cant health minister think of it?People should be taught to give a emergency heart massage suppose one gets heartattack.

    Many people overstressed at work, due to the intense heat wave conditions, fall prey to sudden heat stroke or heart attack!

    It is sad that the head constable died serving a secular state. Citizens have to pay a tribute to police personnel. They do a great service. The police are better off in the Congress regime than in the BJP rule. Congress though has its own interests they do not make use of police for communal purposes. It is only the BJP that has made use of police to protect hooligans who attack those validly transport cows, boys and girls who converse, churches and mosques. The police become a tool to further the hateful and violent ideology of the Sangh Parivar.

    Hiraidka looks like not much work in police station as it's fall in between perdoor to athradi ontibettu madaga etc. Sitting too much also in one place will automatically develop some uncertainty in the body. Need always active to go around. Only eating is not so important even need some exercises.
