Health to Life


The Post 90's era has witnessed growth not only in the field of technology ,IT but also tremendous improvements in the field of healthcare ,by leveraging technology as the key backbone

Gone are the days of the innumerable health issues ,left untreated or cures that was unheard of . Technology has brought in a revolution that has understood the mechanisms and anatomy of the body better than ever before . Technology has leveraged us , to explore deep inside the tissues, skins, organs upto cell level to understand where the health disorder is arising and a painless laser surgery fixes it minutes and the patient can walk back home without a foot astray



However they key pivotal point in the whole healthcare initiative  is increase in awareness, preventive checks and change in the lifestyle altogether ,everything from working styles, diets,  daily routines and measure of phyiscal activities . Corporates, especially in the IT & Manufacturing sector has risen up to battle the evils of an imbalanced lifestyle of their employees and ensure full involvement of their staffs in frequent full body health checkups, yoga & Zumba classes in the weeekends , adherence to strict diet schedules and the likes. A few companies has gone the next step in healthcare initiative , by giving their employees a pedometer kit , to track the no of steps they walk everyday and track them everyday in the systems .

Technology has armorized ( or actually provided miracle weapons) that can heal any almost any health disorder and disease with cutting edge tools ,which was unheard of in the past.
Some of them include

  • Stem Cell  Transplant :


  • Robotic Surgery that includes
    • Total Endoscopic Coronary Artery Bypass
    • Single Vessel / Multi vessel Small Thoracotomy
Robotic Surgery for Prostate Cancer The list is endless ...


These cutting edge instruments has given a fresh lease of life to several millions of people across the globe . In some extreme cases, where the entire face of a victim was burned down due to an acid attack was restored completely using complex skin grafting and cosmetic surgeries . In some other cases, where people who were born with deformities in the face and other parts of the body, were touched by the "hands of God" or in other words, these medical equipments , and ensured return to complete normalcy in just a few days time

One key "Global" hospital that I know personally who has pioneered in research and using advanced technical instruments in their treatments is Apollo Hospital. They specialise in almost every field of medical treatment, be it the heart or the eyes or a deadly cancer

One such life saving technological marvel ,is the Cyberknife Robotic Radio Surgery System. To quote exactly from them , "its a robotic radiosurgery system designed to treat tumors anywhere in the body with sub-millimeter accuracy" . This otherwise inoperable to treat deadly life threatening disease is now in strong hands of Apollo who can safely bet in curing it completely



However to conclude , healthcare not only aids in post operative treatments, but also illustrates the importance of a fine health ,with right amount of exercise , a proper dietary plan , a non sedentary lifestyle and frequent health checkups to ensure a healthy and happy life

Wechat - Connecting the World one step closer

Sometimes you imagine, how awesome it would be to talk to all your favourite icons at the time ,yet you keep reminding yourself ,it'll always be a myth or a dream and never a reality.  Yet one thing that sets apart us humans from other living being ,is our power to imagine, fantasize and explore an alternative reality.  Creating things and doing things that we want to do and desire to do , in our own alternate universe .

The introduction of a new awesome messaging/networking app called "Wechat" brought me to question and wonder, what would it be like to chat with all your favourite role models in a group conversation. Below is a short description of such a imagination into my "Inception"al world

After racking my brain to shortlist to nearly 5 personalities, I decided on "Sherlock Holmes"(Fictional), "Batman" (Fictional) , Steven Spielberg , Jeffrey Archer & A.R.Rahman

The above list is based on a dream project I was thinking about , and what more could aid in its discussion than the awesome WeChat. Assuming a state , where  both Sherlock & Batman comes to life ,and joins the "Bold and the Brawn" We chat group. The discussion revolves around a new movie project to be directed by the best director in the world , Steven Spielberg. The movie script and the narrative to be given by the master storyteller ,Jeffrey Archer and the composition of the music by the double oscar Winner, A.R.Rahman. Batman & Sherlock play themselves in this superhero meets Crime solving specialist to save Starling city.I shall play the project producer and also act as a "Watson replica" to be a third sidekick in this action thriller.



The Wechat app in Sherlock's Iphone & Batman's customized programmed suit that has a Wechat as well will be the key in solving the mysteries and fighting crime eventually. Sherlock receives anonymous voice SMS with hidden messages, which is decrypted after learning key pivotal information from the dark lords , after a long battle by Batman. The battle and the scene setting takes place in the dark corners of Starling city, that is filled with crime in every vicinity.




The story written by Archer , is directed by Steven Spielberg in a time relative , sequential frame method, where events take place in real time .



Every clue for the location solved by Sherlock using WeChat voice message is sent across to Batman ,who quickly races over time to prevent the next crime from happening



Batman to Sherlock :  "Clue location Identified"



The story is concluded with a scene where the people of Starling city, look up to their saviours, who announces that , all 911 calls are to be replaced with instant Wechat voice messages, which will then be quickly received and the taskforce will be sent to the destination within minutes
The final glory to Wechat !!
