“Funds vanish in stinking sickbay” by Tavleen Singh from

;Hapur hospital which looks big enough to have at least 200 beds has 200 out-patients instead and 30 beds that lie empty. Just as well because the mattresses and sheets are so filthy, so stained with blood and other bodily fluids, that a sick person would only get worse. Medical Superintendant Dr. A K Goel looked puzzled at the mention of hygiene; he assumed I was talking about the broken windows and the generally decrepit condition of the building.
