Delhi’s Max Hospital terminates services of two doctors who incorrectly declared a newborn dead

However, the facility said their action did not imply that the panel investigating the alleged case of medical negligence had found any lapse.

New Delhi’s Max Hospital on Sunday terminated the services of two doctors who were involved in erroneously declaring a newborn dead last week. The inquiry panel set up by the hospital to look into the matter is expected to conclude its investigation on Monday, IANS reported.

The facility in Shalimar Bagh said it took “strict action” against Dr AP Mehta and Dr Vishal Gupta “on the basis of our initial discussions with the expert group and as a reflection of our commitment to higher standards of care”. But it also asserted that their move did not imply that that the panel investigating the alleged case of medical negligence had found any lapse.

The baby and his twin were born premature on Thursday morning, and the hospital had declared them stillborn. The family also alleged that the hospital had handed the babies to them in a plastic bag. When the parents were on their way to a crematorium to perform their last rites, they found that the boy was still alive. His sibling did not survive, and the surviving baby is under intensive care at a smaller hospital.

On Sunday, the Delhi Police sent a notice to Max Hospital, asking its authorities to send details of the incident and be available for questioning.

Corrections and clarifications: An earlier version of the story erroneously said that the baby died after he was taken to a smaller hospital for treatment. The error has been corrected.

A musical remix, a delectable dish and a taxi makeover

What do these three works of art have in common?

What connects Raghav Sachar, Ranveer Brar and Taxi Fabric? On the surface, nothing at all. Sachar is known for his genius musical abilities, Brar a chef loved for demystifying food while the essence of Taxi Fabric goes way beyond its name. All three operate, and thrive, in unconnected domains. Upon looking closer, though, a common thread emerges between their work so far - an unmistakable streak of creativity.

Raghav Sachar is a singer, composer and film scorer who was featured in a National Geographic series, My Brilliant Brain, for his prodigious musical abilities - he can effortlessly switch between male and female vocals and play over 30 musical instruments! His adaptations of old Bollywood songs, shot in a multi-screen format, have been especially well received on the Internet.

Ranveer Brar is a well-known chef who is working to expand the idea of food. He has appeared in culinary shows as diverse as Masterchef India, Great Indian Rasoi, Thank God It’s Fryday and Food Tripping. Brar’s work in food media isn’t merely instructional, he seeks to deep dive into food - to the very science of it and its endless aesthetic possibilities. Brar is also a phenomenal food stylist who approaches food presentation as no less than an art, and himself as no less than a food artiste.

Taxi Fabric is a startup that turns taxi seat covers into canvases for artists. Through Taxi Fabric, artists have found a medium to unleash their creativity and activism onto Mumbai’s roads – the iconic kaali peelis. If you get lucky on a Mumbai street, you may hop into a world of Mumbai’s chawls, surrealist Persian architecture, Chandni Chowk and more in your short taxi ride.

The latest projects from these three creatives have a connection too - the same muse, presented by Flipkart. The muse inspired Raghav Sachar to recreate one of his own songs ‘Baahon Mein Tu Aaja’. Watch his new version of the song below.

Chef Ranveer Brar, meanwhile, dipped into his food styling instinct to create a beautiful dish. You can watch his piece of culinary art below.
