  1. Dr. Jayaprakash,Have you seen the meaning of Hygiene little away from AJ Hospital under the Fly over bridge. Bihary Vendor went to urinate and came back and served the Pani Puri. Look at the street vendors in front of all the Colleges including Hotel Management in Vallachil,and see what the Students eat. Look at the front of Hospitals and judge yourself as Doctor,the hygiene among the Vendors and the Students. Vendors are selling food just out side the PUBLIC TOILET , behind Kankanady Bus stand.(Omlet must be tasty) Health Minister does not care,Health Officials do not care. So why advise us.
