Chikkamagaluru: Cultural Thinker Dr. Rashmi K. N. Ramesh, who is also a doctor herself, said that it is advisable to wake up and seek necessary treatment from the doctors before a health problem that appears to be so small, just like the small spark burns the entire house, health problems cause huge problems at the end.
She was speaking after inaugurating a free health check-up camp for inmates organised by Brahmin Mahasabha, District Unit of Akhila Karnataka Brahmana Mahasabha (AKBMS),bVIPRA Mahila Vedike in the District Jail premises in the City. “Health cannot be borrowed from anyone. We must stay away from bad habits and strive to maintain our own health. At the age of 35 to 40, we should have a life-supporting health, maintain the ability to do all the work at least at the age of 60 to 80. However, we should be able to live as a self-reliant life, she observed.
“According to the World Health Organization, health is the state of physical, mental, social and spiritual balance,” she added.
Speaking on the occasion, Superintendent of the District Jail S. S Meti said, “If we look at the history, health, education and annadaana were of utmost importance and value. These three necessities were available for free. All these three aspects have become an industry in the face of modernity today,” he said and added that it makes sense that organisations like Brahmin Mahasabha and Vipra Mahila Vedike are organising camps on the occasion.
Dr. D. P. Mohan, a doctor who led the camp, said that 43 per cent of those who have been jailed for the crime due to rash and negligent decisions are in the age group of 30 to 45 years. The best state of life is 20 to 40 years. In these 40 years, there will be opportunities, and courage. If you spend your life in jail at such an age of achievement, life will be wasted, he said.
