My mom is 74 years old. She was found COVID negative in early June. It all started when she had diarrhea and very mild symptoms. After the COVID test result, we were relieved but since she has a history of breathing issues we consulted a pulmonary specialist
who prescribed the D-dimer test & then the antibody test. We learned that the elevated D- Dimer level is emerging as a typical post-Covid complication. Her antibody test result turned out to be reactive. It means she had COVID and the earlier result was probably a false negative.
I am putting this out there for people who think that recovering from Covid is like 'the happy end'. This virus can inflict unthinkable damage. This is for people who think this is just the flu and if it comes and goes and you are sorted. NO.
My mom had two panic attacks since the past few months, she was advised to do a CT Scan which she walked out of because of anxiety and a feeling of claustrophobia. I don't know if all of this is a result of COVID affecting her nervous system.
So please wear a mask (properly), wash hands and be vigilant when you step out of your house or when you meet people. While it may not be possible to stay at home all the time, assess risk levels & make informed choices.
Don't be delusional because you are not only responsible for yourself but also others. Those conspiracy theories are entertaining but they not going to pay your hospital bills.
P.S She will have to take the D Dimer test done again and if the levels are still elevated she will have to start taking blood thinners.

Much before ‘Satya’ (1998) which celebrates 20 years of existence today, came ‘Shiva’ (1990). There is a scene in ‘Shiva’ in which Nagarjuna breaks a cycle chain and uses it as a weapon to fight the goons. Like me, there were many young boys, who went home after watching the film
and tried to break their cycle chain only to realize that they were fooled by this new director called Ram Gopal Varma. Much later when I got a chance to work with him, the first thing I told him is how he had fooled us in ‘Shiva’. The cycle chain doesn’t break.
RGV just smiled and in his inimitable style said “Thanks!”

He was an unstoppable force in the 90’s. Hitting sixers, film after film. Before ‘Satya’, he made around 10 films but three films stood out amongst the ten. First was ‘Raat’ (1992) - a game changer in the horror genre.
