This refers to the practice of circumcision in Kashmir where either doctors or barbars do it. The doctors in cities use sterilized equipments needed during this technique. But in rural areas we are still dependent on the barbars, who often use unsterilized and rusted equipments. Hence, the rural new born circumcised by barbars are more susceptible to infection. Moreover, the medicine prescribed by barbars is generally herbal and without knowledge which can have adverse effect. Most of the babies in the rural areas are circumcised with out anesthesia. That is quite painful. We must take measures to educate rural people in this regard.
