Union Miister asks - Is this for SWINE FLU.
Picture of a Surgical Suit.( Made in India )
As a CEO of a textile mill I frequented the hospitals to visit my sick employees or persons who had met with accidents.I found lot of Bed Sheets which were not up to standards of hygiene and fresh as it should be.Once I met the Hospital Administrator and enquired as to where he was purchasing his Bed Sheets and who was washing them.He gave a doubtful look at me and asked me why.?I told him that the quality of the Bed Sheets were poor and the washings were poor as they looked with spots and brown rusty marks.This was not a Govt Hospital but a private big hospital.He refused to give me the information and me that I could write a letter to the Chairman.I straight away went to the Chairman's office and he was available and his office was not guarded by a secretary or a office boy.I went inside and gave him my card.He looked at it and welcomed me saying,Oh you are the new General Manager of our local mill,nice meeting you,what can I do for you.I repeated what I had asked the Administrator and told him to provide me the information,he asked me why I needed the information.I informed him my services to help the hospital to get better Bed Sheets and arrange for better washing.His answer was the same as that of the Administrator.I had to write and give them all details so that he could place before the board of directors to see if that was profitable.I wrote the letter but there was no reply.This was over twenty years ago.Things have changed now with the emergence of Technical Textiles.
The Union Minister for Textiles is Feeling by touch the Surgical Suit made in India.Perhaps he is asking if he can get one free for his use in his native place against Swine Flu.( You see he is new in Technical Textiles ).
