Everyone is talking about our PM's surgical strike to root out the cancer of black money, counterfeit currency and corruption from India. But I beg to differ. This is no surgery. Surgery is done only for early stages of cancer which is still operable. Cancer of black money and corruption in India is in the advanced stage with metastases and is not amenable to surgery. What the government has attempted is chemotherapy. Now chemotherapy is exquisitely troublesome unless we give premedication. Generally drugs are given to prevent vomiting, diarrhoea, ulcers, rashes, dehydration etc so that chemotherapy is bearable. This government has erred in not giving any premedication to the poor people being subjected to chemo. They should have ensured proper functional AT M s, more counters at banks, double shifts in banks, adequate cash and more mobile counters where cash can be exchanged. Be that it may, now that the chemo session is over, we have to bear with the side effects and hope that the drug works. Chemotherapy for advanced cancers are often followed by immunotherapy and so government must follow up with more measures to address this cancer.
But remember, most advanced cancers have no cure, chemotherapy only prolongs life. Corruption cannot be completely eradicated. I hope we are able to keep it in check. AMEN.
