Cancer Prevention a part of Palliation
It is not street smartness, but an urge and attitude to serve the society. We were in this Cycle Rikshaw on our way to Cancer Institute from Jhilmill Metro Station to celebrate Deepavali with Cancer patients as a part of DNipCare’s program. The Rikshaw puller Mr. Rajesh took out his pouch of tobacco and was beginning to crush it for chewing. Predominantly with palliative hearts, both of Seema Prasad and me could not help but speak against in such a way that Rajesh not only gave up the habit immediately by throwing away the entire packet of tobacco but promised to be with us and contribute his worth to palliation by propagating the message of 'No to Tobacco' to his peer group of Rikshaw pullers. It feels like we could illuminate his heart forever before the houses in Delhi are illuminated for Deepavali in the evening.
