Would like to convey my heartfelt condolences to the families who lost their near and dear ones in the earthquake disaster in Nepal and parts of India. Hope the world sees no more of these perils again!
Indians have always remained prone to vector borne diseases like malaria, dengue, chikungunya, cholera due to climatic conditions, lack of sanitation, , hygiene , portable drinking water in several rural and urban areas of our country. Unfortunately, every year such diseases claim lots of lives especially during the summer due to lack of proper measures.
