His point of view on Pediatrics

He has been working in this field for past 45 years. His everlasting love for children is quite appreciable. He is touched by the innocence of children where they have no complications in their mind, which becomes one of the reasons for his love towards children.

He is very passionate towards his profession and suggests people curb love towards their profession. He also suggests that, the person who turns his passion into profession can never stay dysphonic in his life.

He recommends the younger generation parents to follow the traditional way of child health care along with new measures to prevent degrading health and mal-nutrition to children. He says that trends have changed from breast-feeding to bottle-feeding which should not be the scene in present scenario.

According to him, breast feeding is important in the initial six months of life. After 6 months infants can be provided with cereals along with breast feeding for a period of 1 year. He also states that, in case of a working professional mother she can keep her breast milk in refrigerator for few hours. But it should not be heated in flame; one can keep the milk in open which will warm up the milk with atmospheric temperature.

Without proper providence of mother’s milk the child might face problems like mal-nutrition, low immune system and degrading growth.

In regards with the availability of equipment in the children nutrition and child health care units, there are necessary and modern equipment which are available in Assam.

He recognizes that the problems of the children have changed from the past. The recent problems are related to the causes of the intake of fast food and online food delivery system. He recommends the parents to provide their infants with cereals from reputed companies such as Cerelac, Nestum, etc.

He also suggests the parents to give proper vaccination. He says that with proper awareness and timely vaccination India has been successful in eradicating some of the deadly diseases. He states that previously from Assam, the conferences, workshops, and other programs of the Indian Pediatrics are held in other states. He is quite pitiful for the lack of proper infrastructure in the North-eastern states where the high-profile delegates cannot be given proper amenities during the conferences. This results in degradation of child health care programs in Assam. But now, fortunately the scenario has been changed.
