As the number of cases of dengue increases in IISc, I was admitted to hospital last week for a couple of days due to dengue. The doctor recognized that dehydration was the key and the platelet count is not as important and put me on saline/dextrose.
I would like to place on record the outstanding response of my students and some of my colleagues. My students were always with me during the entire stay in the hospital and helped me with food, clothing and care. My colleagues also helped me move around, picked me up, dropped me off and were available for any help.
In my interview last year, I had mentioned that I am very proud of my students and how they motivate me. This incident only confirms the same.
A big thanks to the OVERWHELMING wishes from each and everyone of you! Blessed to have such amazing students and friends.
