Are we human?

 

CARE-LESS: The parents of seven-year-old Avinash Rout were turned away by the best hospitals in the capital and, by the time they admitted the child to Batra Hospital, he was close to cardiovascular failure. Devastated at having failed to protect their child, his parents killed themselves after performing his last rites. Similar tragedies play out every day in hospitals across the country. Patients and their families are so inured to it that comment seems redundant. The case of Avinash Rout, too, would have gone unnoticed but for the suicide of his parents.
