Sriram Thyagarajan sent a SOS to Mylapore Times on Friday. He was in the USA.
His mom, a senior and a retired nurse needed medical attention. She had fallen ill and was feeling giddy. He was looking for a doctor to consult or even make a home visit.
Mylapore Times posted Sriram’s message on its FB page. In less than five minutes there was a query – what is the illness?
Sriram connected even as other Mylporeans gave some leads.
In less than 5 minutes, a doctor – a oncologist had connected, set up video calls across the continents and diagnosed the problem of the Mylaporean.
The local pharmacy delivered the medicines.
Sriram was a happy man. So was his mother. And after Mylapore Times posted the story on FB, people offered greetings to the doctor, Srivathsan Ramani.
