I grew up in Hyderabad in the 1970s, even though it was considered a bustling city, even the most basic antibiotics were routinely unavailable at government hospitals and in many of the smaller pharmacies.
A few major pharmacies hoarded the stock and most of the smaller ones had to wait their turn or settle on substandard products from the grey market to meet demand.
I realized that most of the critical drugs were being imported in those days, leading to delays in stocking them. Some even took months before they could be restocked, lives were being lost due to inefficiency. I didn't realize it then, but the seeds of Sreepathi were already sown in my mind.
