IT IS DONE! India’s NDPS Act has been amended!
Honestly, we find it difficult to believe that it has happened. But at about 5.35 PM on 21 February 2014, the Rajya Sabha, the upper house of Indian Parliament also passed the NDPS amendment bill. It happened, finally.
It is done!
It has been a great journey, frustrating most of the time, but nevertheless a great experience, finding goodness in people all over the country, in the highest places in the Government as well as among the lowest.
In 1993, we did not know the road to take. We were like the Cheshire cat who told Alice in Lewis Carroll’s masterpiece. “When you don’t know where you are going, every road will take you there.”
Well, we finally got here.
Thank you everyone who supported the palliative care people in the country to get here and to gain the power to wipe away some more tears.
