Touching Lives - The New Age Medicare

This post is a part of Indi Blogger/ Apollo Hospital Campaign

We are a group of three friends. One of us is a doctor, another a businessman and third me, the wannabe writer and present day blogger. One fine day, over drinks and chicken, we were debating with this other guy whom we met at the club about how corruption is plaguing the modern medicine today. It is then, our doctor friend, opened up defending not only his chosen vocation but also about what little things we choose to ignore around us, but happen around us. These are new age, small miracles of Modern Day Medicare.

One remarkable story was of Rita (name changed) a pregnant woman of 35. You know how doctors are about disclosing patient history? So to cut the long story short, this woman has complications way before the due date. They do a C- Section, get a premature, weak baby who may or may-not survive. Look at the miracle here. They not only saved the woman, by performing a surgery but also the frail baby through their machines and medicine. And all this looks so simple and routine to us. Reality is, that those two lives were at grave risk. They could have easily died.

Another significant story is that of Anand. He is a 12 year old kid, complaining about his heart. The doctor concludes that this guy had very little chance of growing into an adult. He will die well before that. Unless of course they put a stent in his heart that could prolong his life. Sounds simple? Well that little piece of spring that is called stent, is saving millions of lives every day, around the world. You don't simply cut a person and put it anywhere. It is a complex surgery performed with brilliance of modern medicine. Now Anand can live up to 100 years even. Like a normal person.

These and many innumerable stories of people illustrate what modern day medicine day is doing. It is not about money or passion or even about doing the right thing. It is about caring, compassion and persistence that is making medicine like a miracle. It is transforming lives, prolonging lives and most of all, easing pain.

Hats off to such a noble vocation, whose best results can be seen in people braving the odds that nature has thrown at them, with support and solidarity of new age medicare.

Career Impact in times of Corona Virus

In the last few days, as India comes to terms with Covid-19 and struggles with dealing with this pandemic, one question several people are asking me relates to its impact on their careers. Coronavirus is what you hear everywhere these days. Public distancing and lockdowns are being touted as effective preventive measures to limit its spread. The highly contagious virus has brought the entire global economy to its knees. In this environment, what happens to our careers? Feb-March-April is a period when several corporates roll out their annual appraisal. Salaries are hiked, promotions granted, and career advancements planned. This year, however, things look not so promising for anyone as companies brace for adverse effects on balance sheets and glaring losses due to prolonged disruptions in businesses. Here is what you need to do, confined in your homes to thrive your career -  1) Work from home - Don't just pretend to work. Get some real work done. When this is all
