FIVE YEAR survival rate is the benchmark of a cancer prognosis. You are considered a survivor if you stay cancer-free for five years. Or your prognosis is based on the “five year” statistics of the kind of cancer you have been diagnosed with along with the stage it has been discovered at. Any time that you are able to stretch over and above the five years is a bonus. So five years as a term and as a time period become your mental goal posts. There are no hard and fast rules. As I said, these standards are based on statistics and statistics too keep evolving. But five years is the long and short of it.
So what’s this about Salman Khan conviction? Five years? Too long or too short? Or not at all – as we witnessed the quick facility of bail accorded amidst the eieieio of FIVE YEARS.
