Photo electric effect
Activist Arvind Kejriwal seems to have perfected the art of the photo-op. During his bijli-paani satyagraha last week, Kejriwal restored a consumer's power supply, which had been disconnected for non-payment of bills. Photographs in newspapers the next day showed a jubilant Kejriwal atop a ladder next to an electric pole. However, those present at the venues saw an India Against Corruption supporter climb the ladder first and restore power supply. He then joined the cheering crowd. With the scene now set, Arvind Kejriwal climbed the same ladder and let the cameras do the rest.
Councillors had a hearty laugh at a recent North corporation House meeting. Congress' councillors were protesting against alleged collusion of officials and BJP councillors. In an unexpected reply, two women BJP councillors wrote a song titled Jija ji about alleged corruption charges against Robert Vadra. They wrote the lyrics during the meeting and sung it, drawing gales of laughter from councillors.
Follow safety norms
While advocating appropriate safety measures to control spread of infections in hospitals, AIIMS director Dr R C Deka recalled an interesting incident at a recent press conference. "It was Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad's first visit to AIIMS after he took charge in 2009. I took him on a day-long tour of the campus and we visited nearly every nook and cranny. Around 9 pm, Azad said he wants to see the casualty or emergency section." Since the emergency sees a deluge of patients, Dr Deka said he tried to persuade Azad avoid it. But Azad insisted, and reportedly spent over half an hour speaking to patients without wearing a surgical mask. Dr Deka's worst fears came true early next morning. Azad called him around 3 am to say that he was running fever. "It was only a mild fever. But we tell all our doctors to be careful since controlling infections of any kind is of great importance," Dr Deka said.
