At a very early stage in the life of man on this earth, it had been said that man needs three requirements and those were enumerated as a house, clothes, and food. And in spite of the lapse of centuries, these basic demands are still there, though we have brought so many other applications and without the fulfillment of those requirements, we have started thinking that we are still weak and unlucky persons. Here we are talking of living accommodation that is the house. The man on this earth has already left behind his jungle and mountain life and now he has created so many things with which he can construct a living accommodation for himself and for his family. But the tragedy with the man is still there because in spite of all the materials on his command, he is not having a living accommodation which could be called a living accommodation. In all the countries are still found living in accommodations which are not fulfilling their minimum requirements. They are not living a happy life in the houses in which they are living, because the house provided to them are lacking the following provisions: (1) Each couple present in the house is not having a separate room where they could keep their privacy and each child is not having his own separate room to which he could call his own room and keep the same as per his or her own desires. Most of the people in most of the countries are living in one-room house or in two-room houses where they are not having any privacy and therefore, they live like animals. Even the states could not provide living accommodations to the people of their countries. Most of the accommodations provided by the state are not fulfilling these minimum demands and those are provided to the employees as per his or her rank and in this way people who are in lower ranks are having accommodations which are not able to call themselves as living accommodation. (2) This is not good when rich and powerful people are having their colonies separately from those who are sick and weak people. In India people who are called Dalits are not allowed to have accommodations in those provinces which are meant for rich and powerful people or for people who are calling themselves as belonging to productive and of higher classes. And we note that the houses owned by the rich, powerful and by people who are from more senior levels have good looking houses while houses of poor, Dalits and weak people are not good looking houses. (3) When we talk of other provisions like fans, cooler, air conditioners, bathrooms, toilets, rooms, furniture, kitchen, store, verandah, kitchen garden good open yard are not available in the houses and only some of the people could provide these provisions in the house. (4) In most of the houses the people do not have a separate kitchen, and thus the smoke is available in each article in the house including clothes which are hung in the room. (5) There is no separate accommodation for old and elderly people in the house. The bed rooms, the drawing rooms which had been constructed by those people when they were young and they were planning the house have been snatched away by the children and now most of the old and elderly people are accommodated in the space near doors or they are given some place on the roof from where even their voice could not be heard by those who are living in the ground floor. Such a treatment is given to the old and the elderly because the youths are not having their own accommodation. The state must come for the help of these old and elderly people in the house so that they may be able to wait for their death easily. (6) It must be accepted that children are not provided living accommodation as per their demand and as per their requirements. They must have separate rooms where they should be equipped with reading and study facilities. There should be proper light, air and even water should be available in the place. (7) Each living room must have attached bath room and toilet so that they members living in the place could have their privacy and they may not be standing in line before the bathroom and before the shower. If we examine the living accommodations in the world, we shall find that very few people are lucky who could get such accommodation in the house. (8) Each house must have a small garden. (9) Each house must have the place where clothes could be spread for drying in Sun because this is most important and where such open space is not available, the clothes washed shall not be getting proper Sun light, and most of the germs shall remain in the clothes. (10) There should be space for vehicles so that those could be kept safe and should not be standing outside the house having encroachment on municipal land. People who live in houses which are not provided with all these facilities are often either sad or mad and they do not behave properly. They are not in a position to have ain introspection and that is the reason they are not in a position to correct themselves That is the reason they do not get time and space to study, to write something, to have a look on the TV or listen to radio. Such people do not remain normal people and they are not progressive in nature. They are not fertile brain and we should not expect much from such people. Therefore, time has come when each family and each government must start from the house and they must make it sure that their people are getting proper accommodation and if they do not pay heed towards this problems, a time shall come when they shall be having all backward and brainless people with them. A good and proper accommodation is the first need of a society which wants to go ahead and take the people in the next phase of life. The present system where even the states themselves are not providing the people with reasonable accommodation are committing a grave crime with humanity because only animals could be collected in such like shed. If we take that we are men and women, then we should live in reasonable accommodations. These are the minimum requirements which a living accommodation must provide to the owners of the house and if they are not in a position to have such spaces and items in their house, they shall never admit that they are having a good living accommodation. People like in India would never be able to provide such complete accommodation tot heir people and these facilities shall be in luck of those who own money and who own seats of power. The poor people must remain poor and they must look poor and a true and easy identification of a poor person is that he is not having a good living accommodation. The rich and powerful people would never tolerate that poor people should also own or be provided with living accommodation and wiping out all the differences between the rich and the poor. Therefore, the poor shall have to continue with low type of houses so that the rich and powerful people could say that they are rich and more powerful and they may invite the people to their house just to tell them that they could construct such a living accommodation.
Medical tourism is a fast-growing industry in Australia and has been the topic of a lot of media stories lately. Media exposure is mostly a good thing for the industry – it educates people about an option they might not have been aware of, having high-quality medical treatment overseas at an affordable price. But the media don’t tell the whole story. Not all medical tourism providers and facilitators are the same. Here are some common beliefs about medical tourism that might be true in a few cases, but certainly don’t apply to the industry as a whole.
1. Healthcare overseas is always riskier than healthcare in AustraliaYes, there are some unscrupulous medical practitioners abroad. But if you do some preliminary research – and preferably get some advice from a reputable medical tourism facilitator – having a medical procedure overseas needn’t be any riskier than having it in Australia. (Bear in mind that there are risks associated with any medical system, no matter where you have it.) Here are some questions you should make sure you can answer before you commit to an overseas medical procedure:
- Have the inherent risks of the system were explained to me?
- Is the facility accredited by an organization like the Joint Commission International?
- Is my doctor experienced in this procedure?What’s his/her success rate?
- Have I allowed adequate recovery time after my procedure before I travel back to Australia?
2. Medical tourism is all about priceIt’s true that many people are attracted to health travel because of the significant cost savings they can make compared to having medical treatment in Australia. But that’s not the only reason to consider traveling overseas for health care. Here are some of the other benefits of medical tourism:
- treatment when you want it, with no waiting lists
- luxurious medical facilities (comparable in some cases to 5-star hotels)
- a very high standard of nursing care and personal attention
- access to new techniques and treatments that aren’t yet available in Australia
- the chance to have medical treatment while on holiday (especially valid for less invasive procedures)
3. Medical tourism is all about cosmetic surgerySome Australian medical tourism facilitators heavily promote cosmetic surgery packages as their primary offering. It’s easy to get the impression that cosmetic surgery is the only kind of medical procedure you can get overseas. But nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, think of a medical procedure, and the chances are you can access it overseas, at a quality that’s at least comparable to what you can get in Australia. Some of the most popular kinds of overseas medical treatment are:
- eye surgery such as LASIK
- preventative diagnostics
- obesity treatment
- orthopedic and joint surgery such as knee and hip replacements
- fertility treatment
- spine treatment
- alternative health
4. Medical tourism is for AmericansYou might assume that most medical tourists are American. It’s true that the cost savings associated with medical tourism are especially attractive to a large number of Americans without adequate health insurance. But as I’ve already said, medical tourism isn’t all about price. There’s recently been a massive growth in the numbers of medical tourists coming from the UK and other Western European countries. Like Australia, these are countries with universal public health care. But also like Australia, patients are often forced to wait a long time for the procedures they need. One of the significant benefits of medical tourism is the chance to have your procedure performed when you need it, not when the hospital system can fit you in. And then, of course, there are many procedures – like cosmetic and dental surgery – that aren’t even covered by Medicare.
5. Medical tourism means an exotic holiday with a medical system thrown inIt’s easy to get the impression that medical tourism is mostly about travel, with a bit of medical care as an added extra. Unfortunately, the medical tourism industry is partly to blame for this perception. Some medical tourism providers and facilitators fill their brochures and websites with pictures of exotic locations as if their customers’ health needs were nothing but an afterthought. This approach might be fair enough for non-invasive procedures, or for some dental procedures with minimal recovery time. But if you have a severe operation, your priority should be your health. You need to allow plenty of time for recovery – which means total rest. Medical tourism experts recommend you think of health travel as a business trip. You’re in the business of getting better – seeing the sights can be an excellent bonus, but it shouldn’t be the reason for your trip.
Travelling is coupled with a lot of risks; this is particularly true if you’re traveling abroad. Travel insurance, however, cushions you against any travel related hazards. With travel insurance, you’re covered against unforeseen travel eventualities such as medical expenses, flight delay/cancellation, personal accidents, loss of baggage checked by an international airline, private civil liability, loss of money and others.
What is the average cost of travel insurance?Just like many insurance policies, travel insurance is available in a range of packages, with all manner of options and choices. Of course, it tailored this way so that it can address the specific needs of different prospects. On average, the cost of travel insurance is 4-10% of your total trip cost. For instance, if your total, the pre-paid nonrefundable trip cost is $500,000, you can expect the travel insurance policies to range from $250-$400. However, the final cost will also vary depending on an array of several factors such as; -Age of travelers -Travel destination -Length of travel -Type of coverage -Existing coverage Age, in particular, plays an essential role in determining the final cost of your travel insurance. Senior citizens pay a little especially if they`ve an existing health condition. The type of travel insurance coverage you choose also changes the rate. For instance, the primary, the no-frills comprehensive plan will naturally cost lesser than the premium or somewhat specialized policies.
What can bump the insurance cost?Addition of optional extras in your policy can hike your cost of your premium. Examples of optional extras include; -Cover or adventurous activities such as hiking, surfing, hot air ballooning or scuba diving. -Cover of high-value items such as expensive stuff such as laptops, watches… -rental car coverage to cater the excess cost charged by car rental in the event of a claim.
Finding the right travel insurance planGiven that so many factors affect the cost of a travel insurance plan, the secret is to choose a travel plan that is within your budget range but most importantly select a plan that will address all your traveling needs.
The people who go regularly know how annoying that could be. There are downsides to almost all of the transportation methods, and it is tough to choose the right one sometimes. If you are traveling short distances probably the best thing is to take your car. If you are moving overseas for a business meeting, the best thing would be to go by plane. But if you are going on a holiday to a foreign country and you just want to relax the best thing you can do is go on a bus tour. There are plenty of advantages to that, and if you keep on reading, you will see what they are. Group travel is one of the options you can choose when traveling by bus. If you don’t like to talk to strangers and you are not used to it, you can go with people you know so you can have fun while you are traveling. You can go with your family, friends or just anyone you want so you never get bored. Speaking of boredom, I have to mention that there are plenty of entertainment opportunities on the buses. Even if you don’t feel like listening to the radio anymore, you can watch a movie because there are TVs on the buses. In some buses, there are even small TVs in the headrests so you can plug in your headphones and enjoy a movie while traveling. The comfort of the buses is something that you can’t get everywhere. The seats are specially designed to be as comfortable as they can get and there are air conditioners to take care of the temperature in the bus. There are also restrooms and people that will make you coffee or just anything you need. One of the best things about buses that personally I love is that I don’t have to drive. If you are driving your car a lot, you are probably already sick of it. You can just let somebody else handle the driving for you while you relax in your comfortable seat waiting to arrive at your destination. The good thing is that the driver of the buses will stop to take breaks (something which is not possible when traveling by plane) so you will be able to enjoy other foreign countries as well. That way you will visit more countries than you have paid for. Buses are high in so many ways that it is hard to mention them all. They are inexpensive and comfortable for traveling long distances. This year try something different and go on a bus tour (in Danish future ) for the ultimate traveling experience.
