A Day at Sion Hospital

The entire set of reflections is written in the form of a blog post on the link - www.virag.in/2015/03/sion-hospital.html. Should I have copied the entire set here? Was a tad unsure but this is the way I usually submit contributions (in the form of a link to my article). Let me know if the process is different. :-)

Just like in the digital world, we can either be seeders or leechers. We can either take from the community and prevent uploads or we can seed to the community by sharing resources . . for just about every resource we can think of.
