Miscellaneous snaps . . .

Few weeks back, while we visited a village, we found one of the villagers had trapped a wild cat (locally called bhado). The snap does not do justice to the size of the cat.
It was about 5 feet long and should have weighed at least 7-8 kilograms. 

A common treatment for impetigo of the scalp. Mud applied to the scalp . . . 

A cobra bite. There was no systemic envenomation. But, he had put a tourniquet around his finger so tight that the tip became gangrenous. Initially, we thought we could manage it conservatively. Unfortunately, after couple of days, we had to amputate the tip off. 

The damaged hip joint of a 18 year old young man who was being managed as Tuberculosis Hip elsewhere. After we consulted with Dr. Kenny David, orthopediacian at CMC, Vellore, we found out that it was Perthe's disease. 
In a remote village church, women put up a play of David and Goliath. Goliath is the one with a helmet. David is holding the mike. And King Saul is standing on the extreme right (with the red blouse and plastic bag on her head).
