Visiting my sister, Lavanya, in Hyderabad this week. She's a pediatric surgeon and works primarily at the government children's hospital and then freelances at a few other hospitals, like here at St. Theresa's Hospital, which is special to our family because I was born here This hospital caters to lower income families and my sister consults here for charity. When I was born here, my mom said it only cost 250 rupees for the delivery and a week's stay in the hospital. Today, it's still very cheap to deliver at St. Theresa's, costing 10,000 rupees ($184), which is how much those 250 rupees would be worth now.
