      What the authorities are calling rumors were actually 'layman's" analysis of Jaya's health. For these analysis (or rumors) also the Hospital authorities are responsible. Nothing was being told clearly by Doctors. P.S. Even now if you go to a doctor to know what is the meaning of latest health bulletin of Jaya - he will hesitate to decode it and advise you to just SHUT UP..
