Dressed in our new traditional finery, we went to Didhi’s sister’s family for an delicious meal. She was a teacher, the daughter, Aragita, a lawyer, her husband, Ajay, also a lawyer/economist who works with NGOs—one in Davis, another in Des Moines. He had been to the US 3 times in the last 6 months.
I loved the poster on their wall. Interesting discussions into the wee hours of the morning.
Ajay arranged for us to visit a program that connected via cell phone to poorly trained, rural health practitioners, some of whom they identified as “quacks”. Patient data would be collected, the patient and practitioner could have a three way Skype- like connection. The doctor hopefully will improve the quality of care. The potential is mind boggling.
