Kudos To Aruna's Caregivers

A welcome commentary on India's Terri Schiavo, Aruna Shanbaug, focusing on the wonderful care she gets, and that it's not a waste of resources.
Keeping Aruna Alive
Over the past 37 years, Aruna Shanbaug has come to symbolise different things to different people. To her fellow nurses of Mumbai’s KEM Hospital she is a symbol of sheer human spirit. And why not, she has put them in national, nay international spotlight, for their service and perseverance. After all, the hospital has kept Aruna alive for the last 37 years.
Which begs the question, is it right that a Government hospital, the only and sometimes, the last hope, of many of the metro’s ailing poor, allocate scare resources to one patient? Are we keeping Aruna alive merely to make a point? Is it time, as Pinky Virani would have us believe, to let her have some peace? more
