Thanks a lot for this comic.
My best of wishes for the speedy recovery of Mrs. Subramanian.
This comic shows that planning for any job is the key factor-----bad people use it for the bad of the society and good people use it for the benefit of the society.

Also, thanks for the nice article on virus. I feel we should exchange more of such information.

BTW

It reminds me of an interesting fact that I learned sometime back and which changed my views of observing and analyzing various things/incidences around me.

I want to share it with you all---

There are some Human friendly viruses too, called Bacteriophage (Bacterios = bacteria, Phage = Feeds - means 'which feeds on bacteria'), which are found in the river Ganges.

It is a rocket shaped virus which attacks the bacteria by landing on its surface and lets its RNA enter the bacterial nucleus by dissolution of the cell wall of the bacteria ( you can imagine a rocket dissolving the surface by its exhaust flame). This RNA uses the bacterial DNA system to produce virus copies instead of the bacteria progeny as nicely narrated by you.

The new viruses thus produced using the nuclear material of the harmful bacteria attack more and more bacteria and the process goes on -----thus purifying the water of the river Ganges.

This Bacteriophage works well in alkaline medium but dies in acidic medium.

Our ancestors knew this and hence the tradition of throwing copper coins started-as Copper makes Cuprous ion Cu++ . Keeping Ganges water in a copper pot for a few minutes also has the same effect.

OUR MISFORTUNE--

---- Due to our -- 'Lakeer Ka Fakeer' attitude we are throwing any type of coins, be it copper, iron, aluminium, alloys or even gold and silver ones, not only into river Ganges, but into any large river-- causing a huge national loss.
Some people even throw their gold and silver jewellery into the river Ganges-- and are sometimes even coaxed to throw it into a cordoned off area --from where the touts later remove them for their use.

---- People are now a days putting Ganges water in copper pots for periods much longer than required, thinking that the longer the better---which in fact makes the water harmful.

---- Throwing of the biological material (flowers, leaves etc.), harmful chemicals from our industries and household wastes is polluting the water by making it acidic besides causing other harmful effects-----Any Biological material produces H+ ion (a strongly acidic ion)due to the decomposition of the protein it has---thus killing the bacteriophage.

NOW----

----These Human friendly Bacteriophage are getting extinct. They are now restricted to Gomukh (the origin of the Ganges) only, due to increasing acidity in the waters of our precious river, caused by our ignorant and careless attitude.

It is high time that we should understand the reasons behind various traditions and ceremonies conducted by our ancestors and save our heritage and avoid any irreversible loss.

One of my field is medicine also.

I am waiting for the facts reg. Bacteriophage, that you had mentioned.

@praveen By mistake deleted all data including Bacteriophage (500+ GB) from an external disk 4 days ago. Couldn't recover back this weekend. Going Moscow tomorrow, returning back on 25 th Aug. Hoping 28 or 29th Aug can share promised info. Virus is an interesting topic for me also. Sorry for delay!
