We don’t want to go to moon because we want to, but we want to go because it is difficult.
The above line said by the first speaker at inauguration of E-Health Research Centre at IIIT. It was for the gaps which currently are in the IT sector and health field. There were distress amongst the doctors and also thinkers that software industries has gone up crazily but still there is so much to do in the health care sector. There are only 6000 diseases human can have and among them also 1000 are common.

They are very punctual like I have seen in RSS function in CTAE university in Udaipur. With RSS people I spend almost 2 whole day and 1 night staying with them in Nikunj, New Delhi which is headquarter of RSS.
