In an interview to Karan Thapar for The Wire Harsh Mander also spoke about his personal experience at India’s premier All India Institute of Medical Sciences. In October, when he got Covid, he got himself admitted into a general ward of this hospital and described the experience “as close to hell as I can imagine”. He called it “an unending nightmare”. He said AIIMS was guilty of “at least gross negligence, which could have led to my death”. The second half of this precis of the interview will have details of how Harsh Mander was treated at AIIMS and how he nearly died.
The founding premise of The Wire is this: if good journalism is to survive and thrive, it can only do so by being both editorially and financially independent. This means relying principally on contributions from readers and concerned citizens who have no interest other than to sustain a space for quality journalism. As a publication, The Wire will be firmly committed to the public interest and democratic values.
