SOS from USA. Ill mother. Charitable doctor. And all is well.

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.

  1. I really appreciate the updates in Mylapore Times in these troubled times & the fact that the newspaper has become a major network for communication in our area. Undoubtedly the local daily is what one looks forward to everyday.
