Why is our beloved Kalam silent on key issues like the nuclear deal, ýNandigram, the Tehelka exposure on Gujarat riot, freedom of art and ýartist part with special reference to Taslima Nasreen, poverty of school ýteacher, his favorite subject? The nation is to yet to get his prudent ývoice on such crucial issues. The cancer hospital can be state of the art in ýinfrastructure, but not in remedy. India needs to have state of the art ýhealth centre to prevent dreaded diseases. The credibility of medical ýscience is under scanner when it has made everybody dependant on ýmedicines from birth to death. Where is our health? ý
