Ripening Chemical in ‘Papaya’ gave me a Fractured Ankle!

Surprised?

Yes, for the 1st. time in my 54 Years on this Earth - I had a violent chemical-reaction - manifesting in 'unbearable, whole (Full) body itching'.

I searched causes for this kind of allergic reaction, on the net, but couldn’t find much information as to any home remedy.

And within a couple of hours my blood pressure had dropped to very dangerous levels (sub-70) and if I hadn’t been rushed to a nearby Hospital - Specialists there said - I would’ve died and they further confirmed that there were a few such instances, where people have died without knowing what hit them. 

The doctors there, initially, diagnosed it to be a ‘drug-reaction’ and tried to revive me by boosting-up my blood pressure levels with whatever medicines / drugs they should through intravenous injections.  On my recovering consciousness, when they were enquiring about what drugs, I had taken that Day, I named the drugs, all of which have been prescription ones and which I have been using for longer periods and insisted that those prescription drugs for which My body is so used to that it is unlikely it could be a ‘drug-reaction’.
The next Day Morning, they started enquiring of what food I had the previous Evening to which I replied ‘Papaya’.  The Sr. Physician there advised me that I should desist from taking ‘Papaya’ as it’s giving me violent allergic reaction. 

Well, I had taken Papaya scores of times and it never gave me any kind of allergy, earlier and wondered how it, suddenly, started to give me ‘reaction’.  Then, I recalled having read and seen ‘expose’ of unscrupulous fruit & vegetable vendors using dangerous chemicals to ripen them, though I couldn’t recall the names of any.
Finally, the Doctors concluded that it must be ‘Chemical-Reaction’ that went into my stomach through ‘Papaya’.

It all started with my taking - on Friday Last (September 28, 2012) - a small bowlful of Papaya pieces and within 5 minutes, I had that violent chemical-reaction.  After trying to find some cause & probable home-remedy for my condition, I went to toilet and I lost my consciousness and with it my balance that I fell on the ground with a twisted right ankle. 

My right ankle has been casted in accordingly and I’ve been discharged the next Day, after instructing me to stop putting any weight (my body-weight) on my Right Feet (Ankle), take the prescribed medicines and also do some physiotherapy exercises, for six Weeks before I visit them for inspection to remove the casting on my feet.

The next Day after my discharge from the Hospital, I searched, this time round for ‘fruit ripening chemicals’ and I found out that Calcium Carbide is extensively used for ripening most fruit which may also contain “arsenic and phosphorous” which make the fruit poisonous and less tasty.

And also that it costs only Rs. 60/- per Kilogram and only around 100 Grams is used to ripen, artificially, 50 Kilograms of Fruit.

Usage of ‘Calcium Carbide’ for fruit ripening is banned in most countries including in India.
Either with the help of our lethargic & / or corrupt ‘Food Safety Enforcers’, the deceitful fruit traders are poisoning so many innocent people some of whom could be infants, the weak, old or those convalescing from some ailment, with this banned Chemical or they must be using some other toxic chemical for the same purpose.

No Wonder, people would want to go back in History where everything is grown through natural processes only and never used any artificial, especially of the Inorganic type contamination.

WHO SAYS ‘WALMART’ WOULD BRING HAPPINESS TO ALL?


At the cost of being branded as an alarmist or a mad-person with phobias or even as a lackey of some vested interests, I wish to predict the scenario 10 Years from now, with FDI in Retail Sector, based on the Historical Data.
According to the ‘World Bank- Global Development Finance Report 2009’[1] Educational Qualifications of Organised Retail Sector are – mostly computer savvy – 56% of Undergraduates, 36% of Graduates & 8% of Post-Graduates.

If Walmart succeeds the way it did in Mexico – capturing as much as 62%, in the first 15 Years (since 1997) [2] – assuming our Retail market stagnates at the current level of only Rs. 21,34,400/- Crores of Sales with 12 Lakh businesses – owned by individuals of Families that employ as many as 4 Crores of mostly Computer-illiterate, School Drop-outs – It would displace, like it did in Mexico – around 7 Lakh businesses and would employ just over 13 Lakh Undergraduates, Graduates & Post Graduates, with a Sales of around Rs. 13,23,328/- Crores – after disemploying as many as 3,86,76,672.

       01)  Who says FDI in Retail Sector, with the likes of unscrupulous Walmart [3] entering Indian Retail Sector would create jobs and not take away them?

Much larger studies concluded that the Prices of Supermarkets in Latin America, Africa & Asia have remained higher, by 20%-30%, than those of the open Markets.

         02)  Why anybody should peddle canards of ‘the Prices at Large-Format Retail Outlets’ would be Cheaper to the Consumer?? 
 
In USA, the birth-place of “Walmart” and several other Large-Format Retail Outlets, their Government has been subsidizing its Farmers to the tune of US$ 60/- Billions a Year!

             03)  What is the logic or motivation [4] behind spreading rumours about Farmers Getting better prices???

Skewed Socio Economic Policies are the Root-Cause of our Fiscal Deficit!

Subsidy Defined & Re-Defined:

·         MONEY paid, usually by GOVERNMENT, to keep PRICES below what they would be in a free market, or to keep alive businesses that would otherwise go bust, or to make activities happen that otherwise would not take place.

·         Subsidies can be a form of PROTECTIONISM by making domestic goods and SERVICES artificially competitive against IMPORTS.

·         By distorting markets, they can impose large economic costs.


While the above being the true definition of ‘Dry-Economics’, in the contexts of “Socio-Economics of a Welfare State”, its an Interventional Instrument of Government to enable those who cannot, otherwise, meet their ‘Basic-Needs’ – on account of Economic-Poverty.

As to the definition of ‘Basic-Needs’ there cannot be any differing opinions.

They are,

        *  Potable Water,

        *  Nutritious Food,

        *  Clothing,

        *  Shelter,

        *  Primary Health & Education,

        *  Equal Employment Opportunities, &

        *  Economic Security to the ‘Challenged, Old and Infirm.

Under no stretch of imagination, anyone, in his right sense can include the following to the above list:

      Ø  Expensive & highly Polluting Cars owned by individuals, families or organisations that are used for personal transportation;

          Ø  Diesel Power Generators used to protect the occupants from the discomfort on account of power cuts;

          Ø  Manufacturing, Service Providing or Infrastructure, for profit, using highly polluting fuels.


Hon. Prime Minister’s Speech of September 22, 2012

I)                   Case of Subsidized Diesel:

           §  He has confessed that much of the (subsidised) diesel is used by big cars and SUVs “owned by the rich and by factories and businesses”, acceding to the last highlighted point of the above list;

             §  Demonstrated ‘Zero’ inclination in plugging-up any of the above “Leakages”; and

         §  Still resolved to extend a subsidy of as much as Rs. 17.50/- per liter on diesel – that can be used indiscriminately, by anyone for any purpose.

Who Deserves Subsidized Diesel?

        *  3-Wheelers & 4-Wheelers which ply mini-mass Passenger & Cargo;

        *  Railways which undertake the mass-rapid transport of Passenger & Cargo;

        * Road Transport Corporations which undertake the mass-rapid transport of Parcels & Passengers;

        * Individual Farmers who need to irrigate their fields from ground-water;

        *  Farming Vehicles & other Equipments, if any, used for Agricultural Works & Public Works;

     * Municipal or local community Water boards for running their stand-by diesel generating sets to pump potable water, during power-cuts; 

      * Hospitals, Old-Age Homes, Orphanages & Schools for running their stand-by diesel generating sets, during power-cuts; and 
 
        *  Any other deserving entities, not listed above, for genuine purpose.

If Dr. MMS could show some resolve to plug the above leakages he could save at least Rs. 23,000/- Crores – on Diesel Subsidy alone.

II)                Case of Subsidized LPG:

*      Dr. MMS declares, based on a study, that “almost half of our people, who need our (Govt.’s), actually use only 6 cylinders (a Year) or less.”

*      And only that approximately 50% of all the LPG Connection Holders, truly, deserve subsidized LPG and none else – in true spirit of a ‘Welfare-State’.

*      In our Homes we consume, steadily, 12 cylinders, a Year if not more, because we prepare three meals a Day, not to speak of preparation of Tea - Twice a Day as well as heating water for bathing purposes at least once a Day and sometimes more.

*      Based on the above and my own observation of the issue for the last few Decades, I confirm that the above statement-of-fact to be true as those, who struggle to meet their basic-needs are too busy chasing and working for their daily wage that they hardly cook twice a Day and also never use LPG for heating water for bathing purpose.

*      Granting him that the above to be true, he failed to give us any vision or plan to plug the leakage on account of as much as 57.50 Million Connection Holders.

*      By slashing-down subsidy to ‘Zero%’ on all undeserving LPG Connections, the Government would enable OMCs (Oil Manufacturing Companies) earn – after providing subsidized LPG to 50% of the above deserving lot @Rs. 450/- per cylinder (for 6 cylinders a Year) and by charging from the rest @Rs. 750/- per cylinder (for 12 cylinders a Year) – as much as Rs. 36,225/- Crores a Year on LPG Marketing alone!

This also means, GoI reducing its subsidy burden on LPG by Rs. 36,225/- a Year.

Let not Dr. Singh come to us cribbing about Current Fiscal Deficit threatening our National Economy and show the ‘Bhooth’ of failed Western Economies – most of which have lived-off, for too long, on borrowed credit and are now unwilling to make those essential sacrifices to return to realistic and sustainable economy.

Dr. M.M.S., The Sustainable solution is well within your hands to reduce all deficits and show economic progress based on the sound principles of Socio-Economics that encompass all sections of Society.
