Tuberculosis has killed more people in India over the ages as compared to the recent pandemic. And the plague continues. Why, despite health policies, is TB rampant in India? Is it malnutrition or social and political neglect? Is there a way to combat the epidemic? Is there a permanent cure? The two authors discuss the history of this disease, its boundless geography and the devastation to human lives.
