swine flu

swine flu has hit the people around the world really hard[atleast according to WHO] and is said be announced as a full blown pandemic[still in 5/6 alert phase-WHO with 1003 cases till now in 20 countries]..In simple laymen's language its a viral infection of the lungs leading to secondary bacterial infections[cause of death]...Luckily till now there hasn't been any case detected in India
And from this week we have been put for Airport duties.Our work there is just to screen the incoming international passengers for the flu with a questionnaire and isolate them in case found positive.Working there indeed makes u come across so many different kinds of people like one guy[around 50yr old] had to return to India coz he had a minor heart attack few days back[as told by his wife to her relative] and another guy who inspite of being well dressed[and with a 30k mobile] couldn't fill in the form coz he didn't know English.But the best were the air hostess whom i talked to while getting their filled in forms..each one looks so perfect that its really difficult to decide whos the best:D....

p.s-leaving for pavgada tomorrow....
