Celebral atrophy!

Saturday, October 16th, 2010

We have a colleague M who has been sick for quite some time, may be more than one month. The first symptom is that he did not remember what he was asked to do a couple of minutes before. Once, he went to a place with motorcycle and returned work on foot. When asked where he went and where he left the bike, he replied he did not remember. His case soon become problematic and he started to walk at night unconsciously. His relatives decided to send him to see a doctor who prescribed some medecine. He resumed work soon after. However one day he began to tremble. He was immediately sent back home. Later when we queried about his health, we were told that he had fever and was admitted to hospital. Medical certificates come one after another and still no sign of recovering.

Couple of days ago some colleagues went to visit M. Their briefing is that M’s condition is deteriorating. He could barely move nor speak when they came. M was very stiff. We decided today to form a group to visit M after hearing such obliterating thing. When we reached there, M was lying in bed. He was indeed very thin and he was shaking. However he was very lucid and recognised all of us. He was very happy to see us and began to talk. We rejoiced that he has improved. Soon after his voice cracked as he was talking about the sacrifice he underwent to build his house, and unfinished WIP before he got ill. Tears rolled down my cheeks.

His mum showed us pills M is taking and his brain scan. Doctor observed that M is suffering from celebral atrophy, which is affecting his nervous system. He could not walk by himself as he was very weak. His mum told us that days ago, they all thought M was dead. He was so cold and could not move nor talk. It was then they decided to change doctor and his condition improved. He indeed needs rest as his memory fails after some time. We took leave after some time and wish him prompt recovery. M’s mum is really courageous. She does not show sign of defeat and fights for his son. We really hope M will get better soon and will get to see his smile again… Time can only tell.

Cimetiere Bois Marchand!

Wednesday, October 13th, 2010

There is a stir after the publication of an article “ Menacés et volés dans un cimetière” signed by Bernard Saminaden in L’express of the 8th October 2010.  The journalist did not mention the date of the mugging. However from reading the article one would automatically think that the this must have happened until very recently as anyway newspaper does not publish old news, otherwise it would not be called a daily.

The details interested and struck a reader as this incident happened 4 months ago exactly on the 03rd June 2010. The mugging was widely reported by Radio PLus and le defi plus of Saturday 05th June 2010. The lady who was mugged happened to be related to the reader and on a personal initiative, he constituted a team of 12 persons living at Bois Marchand to clean and embellish the cemetery as it looked more than a jungle and an abandoned cemetery. According to the reader cleaning is done, and maintenance works are being carried out and it looks that this would last till end of the year.

The reader goes on to state the fright and reticence of  the chinese community about going to the cemetery after the front page publication of the article when even the senior journalist did not even go about the pain of verifying the writings and just borrowed a piece of old news. The irony the reader stated is that on the 06th October 2010, Bernard came along with his colleague in 3 vehicles and met the reader’s foreman at the cemetery. The foreman did mention the fact that ever since the 05th July 2010 when cleaning started, there had been no cases of mugging and the last mugging case reported at Terre Rouge police station dated the 03rd June 2010. In spite of the reassurance given, the article was still published on the 08th October 2010.  The reader continued to ironise about the so called insecurity the journalist is  talking about when an Indian crew was filming at the very same cemetery.  The correspondence even stated about the righteousness of the PM about press legislation.

The mail was copied to the press complaint committee and in a correspondence signed by Ariane de L’estrac, she promised action will be taken and the journalist would have to explain himself.

So what do you think? Is the press going too sensationalist? or amateurish?

Tits and tats!

And it’s in again. According to the meteorological station, we are actually in the winter summer transition period. So this means heat and mosquitoes againn…. And these mosquitoes have dammed evolved. They have grown bigger. What were they feeding on during the winter season? Fans will have to be on, and mosquito coils and repellents will be of use again. Hopefully it will not be that hot. And as usual, thanks to the leaks in the water distribution system, we are again faced with water cut, and the usual rhetoric of ‘ do not waste water’. The ministry of  health is actually launching a campaign concerning the prevention of spread of chiks and other mosquito borne diseases. Summer is going to be looonngggggg.
