Health Care

One of my friends recommended the Michael Moore movie Sicko. I should say i was impressed by the way an obvious truth was hidden from the people of america and how Mike managed to present it.

In India, we have socialized health care and private care in parallel and have seen how socialized care is corrupted and inefficient and how the private care is increasingly going the same route atleast the way it operates if not the quality of care.

I have also managed to experience first hand how the NHS system works in UK, and vouch for its description in the movie.

On one hand it gives what is in store for privatize health care in US and India. Other hand it provides some hope that there are better systems that can come here.

However we dont know if the current system will move to the worse before other systems can even come here.
