MedTatva : Tool to screen for #COVID19


We are all going through a tough time with #COVID19 #Epidemic. It has been a testing time for doctors, public and administrators alike. The poor have been hit badly and are under threat as the epidemic is still spreading in various countries as we speak. Access to healthcare, paying capacity, travel are all issues that the citizens of various demographics have to confront.

We at MedTatva [ https://medtatva.com ], have been trying to solve accessibility to healthcare and diagnostic tools by using technology.

Past few days we have put together the best recommendations from CDC and WHO to build a symptom checker that is simple and which could be completed in less than a minute by a non-medical person.

Please find the screening tool here : https://medtatva.com/coronavirus/home

Who’dve Thought ..


Who’dve thought civilized nations would be told to wash hands and cover when they cough ?

Who’dve thought that nations would succumb and leaders breakdown as the juggernaut came ?

Who’dve thought it would come upon us when we where busy ironing out tirival creases of our differences ?

Who’dve thought that next big war would be fought between Humans & Viruses ?

Who’dve thought that the only religion that mattered is whether one’s human or not ?

Who’dve thought that the only politics that mattered is whether one’s sick or not ?

Who’dve thought the only accolade, only badge that mattered is whether we are alive or not ?

Who’dve thought that doctors will be frontline, and soldiers would do rear guard ?

Who’dve thought that cannons will be silent and syringe will hold the key ?

Who’dve thought that brute force and politics would bow down before knowledge and selflessness ?

Really, Who’dve thought ?

My Teachers said …


my Teachers said …

My routine broke, as they hushed “Don’t !!”,
Muffled voices echoing faintly across time,
Didn’t care listen, in a hurry, who has time ?
Am in hustle to put one upon my fellowmen,
To Conquer .. the conquest and the victory,
Surrender and subjugation, The Happiness …

But nature cares, for a mother can’t but,
When she sees her child wandering thus,
Her patience for the truants runs short,
Her rebuke, a gentle slap of no avail as she,
Unleashes pestilence, her stormtroopers,
To sweep, clean the home; they do, ruthless,

It seems best is to stay put, clear off streets,
Voice low, no splurge and abide in quiet self,
Closetted with partners and one’s own clan,
Coccooned in quiet contemplation on the ills,
Waiting for her anger to wash over the kind,
It’s message is to mend ; stark one too ..

Seems my teachers said, about this too,
The material, evanescent like the wealth,
It seems he said a time would come, when,
The money is not worth the paper it’s in print,
What to say of success, more than the King,
Who’s mortal hand, as empty as a newborn,
As his mortal was led down the street lined,

Seems they said much more ; now real too…
It is time to hear those faint echoes of time,
Ancients, strange habits seem so in tune,
Let’s put our ears on the ground, let’s listen,
To the faint voices of teachers across time,
For we can hear it better as troopers near..
