For all IIT alumni in Pune.

Continuing our practice of getting maverick thinkers and speakers, the IITBAA Pune Chapter has invited Dr. Rajiv Sharangpani to talk about how to lead a healthy and fit life till your last day, and how NOT to get trapped in the so called "healthcare system" which is getting more insidiously commercial by the day. According to Dr. Sharangpani what we have in the developed countries, and now in India, is not Health-care but disease-care. It is an eco-system that tries to maximise return on investment by the various stakeholders - doctors, hospitals, pharma companies, and medical equipment manufacturers. It does this by creating a fear psychosis, and prescribing unnecessary tests, medicines and surgeries, sometimes doing great harm to the "customer", the hapless patients.
