Recently, we met Dr. Juhi of 'Sanjivani' and asked her to give a few tips for safe living during the monsoons. She did tell us a lot and yes, she too enjoys the season like most of us, but hates what happened on July 26. Here is the excerpt of the tÊte-À-tÊte.
Do you enjoy the monsoon?
Very much, I love this season.
Where will you like to go in the rains?
I would like to go to Khandala, it is beautiful especially in the rains.
Is it better in any hill station or in 'Mumbai'?
I like 'Shimla' among all hill stations and like to go there, but being a Mumbaite I love Mumbai and my favourite has to be 'Mumbai'.
What kind of food you prefer during monsoon?
There is no any such special preference. I like to eat good food and that should be hygienic and healthy.
What type of precautions do you take during monsoon?
I don't take any precaution. I just lead my life in a healthy way.
Do you choose umbrellas and raincoats or just pick up the black one.
I prefer the coloured ones. There must be colour in life.
Do you like getting drenched in rain?
Not, for me.
Is having a car a necessity during monsoon in 'Mumbai'?
No, I don't think so. It is good if one has a car, but it doesn't matter much.
What about the bad experiences of rain? What precautionary measures should the government take?
When it rains heavily it gets bad. I feel something should be done about garbage in Mumbai.
If July 26 happens again then...
I can't imagine that horrible situation.
At last, what would you like to say to the readers? Any message for them?
Stay safe and eat healthy and stay away from 'bhelpuri' and 'panipuri' till at least the monsoons end.
