      I don't know anything about Mr Khan, nor his wife. I gather they are public figures. Mr Khan has a "rare disease." There is no disease today, rare or not, that doesn't have a name. Instead of wasting her words and our time in writing a rambling tract about not speculating, why can't Mr Khan or his wife spit out the name of the disease? This is one of the problems with health and healthcare in India. The humans who are ill do not want to acknowledge they are, the doctors are happy to keep their patient ignorant, and everyone spends much time in not talking about the 800 pound gorilla that is sitting on the shoulders. Had Mr Khan lived in America, it would not have taken more than a few days for him, or his doctors, to tell the world what disease, or what form of cancer, if cancer it is, from which Mr Khan is suffering.
