If my memory serves right the Plague was really bad in the Punjab in the 1920s due to the digging of irrigation canals...but I need to re-check.

I remember reading about the plague in Punjab and its potency, I think it is covered in Dr. Mridula Ramanna's work on the Bombay Plague.

Sir, apart from the scientific and medicine dimension (cure, symptoms, origin) in what other ways does history help in understanding present epidemics and pandemics and predict the differentials in the outcomes?

Sir, could you tell us when and how did statistics came to be used in India in the context of public health and diseases? Also, were the indigenous medical practices trying to understand these epidemic patterns? were they studying it?
