Let's go back to the basic, what causes heart diseases?
Health care is preventive, it always comes at the second step.
What matters is why heart diseases happen?
30 years back, would anyone have imagined such a scenario?
Because everyone in rural areas were still doing the things their ancestors used to do, they worked hard in the field and ate natural.
Today everything has gone for toss.
Farm owners don't want to work, everyone wants to sit back and stare either into the television or the mobile. What is available at a grocery store of Bombay is available at Teliya.
It's like the a storm started in urban areas and has now swept over the rural parts also, and it is a dark storm.
A couple of days back, I was talking to my fisherman friend Johnny here, we started discussing illness and all, since weather was turning tide.
He said, no one in Goa wants to work and that's why there are huge cases of heart attacks. People have such a sedantry lifestyle that only time they really move their ass is when they go to relieve them selves.
Everyone almost has a tourist related business and they mint money 6 months, that also is mostly done sitting like running a guest-house or a store or two-wheeler rental, there is no much movement.
And then the eating and drinking habits, it's all famous in Goa.
Above all, the blind chase to own a bigger house, a bigger phone, a bigger vehicle; it is so pervaded here that, everyone is running. Leads to all that stress.
The urban-rural divide is a myth now!
