Army builds surgery room beside LoC

In a move that will provide swift medical treatment for Army troops guarding the Line of Control, the Armed Forces Medical Services has constructed an underground operation theatre at a location very close to the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir, sources said on Friday.

Sources said the OT has been constructed just a few hundred yards from the Line of Control, the de-facto border with Pakistan.
Sources said the OT has six beds where operations can be conducted simultaneously. Besides these, there are more beds for patients for both pre-operation and post-operation emergency care.
“The facility is state-of-the-art. It was built as an underground facility recently to deal with any eventuality of shelling by the Pakistanis,” sources said. Sources said the air-conditioned facility was recently operationalised and is both “shell-proof and shock-proof”.
Sources also said the facility can withstand natural disasters such as earthquakes.

The kindest thing that can be said of the Bharatiya Janata Party’s indifferent performance in the series of byelections since the general election last May is that they are a pointer to the significant role played by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in ensuring the decisive Lok Sabha outcome.

Disasters not only disrupt society, they also distort its basic categories, creating inversions, disrupting normalcy and suspending time in a prolonged way. Return to normalcy then becomes even more difficult and unpredictable.
