Digital healthcare platforms are online services that provide access to health information, diagnosis, treatment, and care delivery. They can include websites, apps, telemedicine, wearable devices, and electronic health records. Digital healthcare platforms have the potential to improve national healthcare by enhancing the efficiency, quality, accessibility, and affordability of health services. The digital healthcare platforms need to be designed and implemented with care and caution, taking into account the needs and preferences of users, providers, and policymakers. They also need to be evaluated and monitored for their effectiveness and impact on national healthcare.

Nurses are the blessings of God
Today is International Nurse Day. It is observed around the world to honour the contribution of nurses to society and acknowledge the role they play in the overall healthcare system. Nurses play a crucial role in providing medical care and their role during COVID-19 has inspired humankind. Nurses have a long and rich history of serving humanity with compassion and professionalism. Nurse Day is also an opportunity to raise awareness about the challenges and issues that nurses face in their work. Let us recognize that nurses are not only caregivers, but also leaders, innovators, and advocates for health and human rights.
My First Wedding Anniversary
Earlier this month, on the 3rd of May, I celebrated my very first wedding anniversary! It’s been an incredible journey so far, with much to be thankful for and much more to look forward to. I feel like it was a month or two ago that we went down to Dumka (Jharkhand), but then again when I look back on everything that has happened this year it feels like we have been married forever.
Day Trip to Ghum & Darjeeling
I visited Ghum and Darjeeling with my family. It was a wonderful trip. We enjoyed the scenic views of the Himalayas, the tea gardens, and the toy train ride. Ghum is the highest railway station in India and has a famous monastery. Darjeeling is a charming hill station with a rich cultural heritage. We had a memorable time there.
An Afternoon at Getalsud Dam
Getalsud dam is a beautiful place that offers a scenic view of the water reservoir and the surrounding hills. It is located about 35 km from Ranchi city and is easily accessible by road. The dam was built in 1971 for irrigation and drinking water purposes. The dam is located on the Subarnarekha River. It also serves as a picnic spot for tourists and locals.
Chhau Dance & Paryavaran Mela in Ranchi
We went to the Paryavaran Mela in Ranchi and saw a lovely Chhau dance in the evening. Chhau binds together people from different social strata and ethnic backgrounds with diverse social practices, beliefs, professions, and languages. This semi-classical dance form originated at the royal court of Saraikela, now in Jharkhand. However, increasing industrialization, economic pressures, and new media are leading to a decrease in collective participation with communities becoming disconnected from their roots.
Road Trip to Ghatshila | Journey from 2022 to 2023
The Gregorian New year is already upon us, and I wish for all to have a healthy year ahead. I had an awesome journey to the new year and will like to share my experience with you. We went to Ghatshila on 3-day bike trip to celebrate the journey of time from 2022 to 2023. This was my exhilarating adventurous new year celebration. I even felt a hangover from the bike road trip for the next few days. Just one thing repeating in my mind- NEED TO DO IT AGAIN!
Christmas Eve: Visit to Ranchi Zoo
We were planning for quite a time about how to celebrate Christmas eve this time. After long deliberation, we zeroed in on visiting the Bhagwan Birsa Biological Park at Ormanjhi in Ranchi. I last visited it some 13-14 years ago. The place has since been changed a lot. It was a nice day spent at the zoo watching the animals enjoying their winter sun in captivity.
River Cruise on River Ganga, Varanasi
Varanasi is one of the most visited religious destinations in India, thanks to its historic ghats, splendid temples and the distinct flavour of the city itself. It is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world, a fact that makes it even more fascinating as a popular tourist spot in India. It is the river Ganga though, which lends the city its identity. Indeed, the city and the river have become synonymous with each other. We went for the evening river cruise for the fabulous views of the river Ganga, the ancient Ghats and the Ganga Aarti.
Road Trip: Prayagraj to Varanasi
We were travelling from Prayagraj to Varanasi. Due to some last moment changes in the programme, we visited Sitamarhi a.k.a. Sita Samahit Sthal, which is in between Prayagraj and Varanasi. In Varanasi, we went to worship at the Kashi Vishwanath temple in the morning. This is the first time I visited since the renovation of the place. It's awesome. But, I was missing the emotional connection, which is lost in the renovation and reorganisation of the system at the temple.
