Government Hospitals on par with the best
There is always a general notion about government hospitals that makes private citizens choose private hospitals over government ones. This I.A.S officer did something which could go a long way in shattering the stereotypes that exist about government hospitals.  S.S. Nakul, an IAS officer serving as the Chief Executive Officer of the Ballari Zilla Panchayat, got his wife’s maiden delivery done at the district hospital in the city.

The Hindu reported that Mr. Nakul’s wife Poojita got admitted to the district hospital on Thursday morning and delivered a male child. The report continues to talk about how well equipped and experienced the district hospital is.

Changing perceptions
Dr. Basareddi, District Surgeon had informed Mr. Nakul of the best medical services being provided at the district hospital. This reassurance from the doctor facilitated Mr. Nakul to choose the district hospital over private ones.This gesture by Mr. Nakul cold bring the change in the perspective of the common man about government hospitals.


The Logical Indian appeals to the governments of state and center to work together and ensure quality health care is provided at the government hospitals at affordable rates. It is high time that government hospitals shed their negative image.
