Hello Readers,

We live in challenging times now. Who would have thought three months ago that the whole world will be brought to its knees by a virus. Corona virus pandemic has put enormous strain on healthcare systems in all countries and the long-term economic impact is going to be significant. The positive aspect is that this crisis has brought the focus of global leadership to healthcare.

Over the last 20 years, Kauvery hospitals have been at the forefront in delivering world-class healthcare during the calamities like tsunami in 2004, Dengue fever in 2013, Chennai floods in 2015 and Cyclone Vardha in 2016.

The Unknown Enemy – Covid-19

The Earth we live in is no ordinary place. It has had and been having many historical glories and catastrophes. Wars, natural calamities, nature’s beauties are all the ingredients that make this planet what it is today. However, over billions of years, evolution has eradicated masses of species from this planet due to natural disaster or disease. Human survival is continuously threatened. The oldest forms of life on Earth were reported in the form of fossilized microorganisms discovered in Quebec, Canada, as early as 4.28 billion years ago, not long after the earth formed 4.4 billion years ago. Ever since, nothing has killed more humans than bacteria, viruses, or parasites, not even natural disasters or war.

Dr Suresh Venkita, our Group Medical Director, a senior cardiologist and an avid writer, has yet again shared this lovely story from his desk, about the elderly parent who was home alone, and thought he was going to soon meet his maker!

Knock, knock, who is there?

It was getting late enough to be worried. I once again stepped into the balcony and looked down. Except for a drenched street dog that was lying down miserably near the gate, there was not a soul to be seen anywhere. Rain water had puddled under the lamp post. A breeze ruffled the mango tree in the courtyard and a few twigs fell down and broke. Thunder rumbled in the distance. Did I hear a soft knock at the door? I turned back….

I heard it again, distinctly this time. It was certainly a knuckle, knocking on wood. Polite, patient and pacific, butthe message was clear-no hurry, take your time, but it is time.

Unity is our strength at Kauvery

In this era of disparity,
We are here for unity,
Like the branches of a tree we grow in different directions,
Yet the roots keep us all together.

Kauvery is our roots,
A team is not a group of people who work together but who trust each other,
Unity is our strength at Kauvery where through teamwork and collaboration,
Wonderful things can be achieved.
