Docs from China

This is college admission season and am pleasantly surprised by the absence of the multitudes of MBBS in China (with pagoda and all) advertisements which adorned the classifieds section of the Times Of India, till last year.

The one advertisement that still appears with regularity in the TOI, Pune reads :
MBBS in China
Choice of 8 Top Rank Uni.
English Medium
Eligibility min 50%in 12th
MCI Curriculum
WHO & GOVT. Recognized
300 Students already studying
GATEWAY Overseas Education
24275037 / 9890799993

i thank the Management of The Times of India for their sense of responsibility to the aam janta by not printing those pagoda advertisements any more. Would appreciate if the above could also go off print.

The novel menace is the regular (TOI, Pune 7 / 8 / 9 Aug 2006 and many more) Study in Russis - MBBS - BDS - MD - MS advertisement inserted with the contact details of Dr. Suhas Mane MD (Russia) #020-25510118 / 56024111 / 94224 10508 / 93701 60708 and a website.

Ergo, the good Dr. Mane probably makes more rokra as enrolment consultancy fees, than from his medical practice.
btw, the only other MD (Russia) i have seen in print was a doctor’s signage in a small village, during my bus journey from Chennai to Kodikarai (earlier called Point Calimere), on a bird-watching trip a few years ago.
