Whether one is capable or industrious depends on the individual. But to recognize one’s potential, or to encourage one to rise beyond one’s limitations we need a mentor who has the vision, a liberal hand, the wisdom and the determination to help us bring out the best in ourselves. A leader, a guru or a mentor is one who thinks good for everyone around.

Be it a family or a work place or a nation, to be led and inspired by a visionary leader is a great blessing. Every family has such leaders- they are our parents and grandparents. From the day of our conception, they think only about us andnothing but us. [Read More…]


External Breast Prosthesis


Breast cancer is now globally one of the commonest cancers seen among women. What is more alarming is the rise in its incidence among women in the younger age groups as well. For decades, until the early 2000s, the only surgical treatment for breast cancer was complete removal of the breast – what we call a mastectomy. This procedure can add to the anxiety and depression of one who has been diagnosed with breast cancer. It is traumatising for a lady to lose her breast as itcauses disfiguration, loss of one’s body image, lowers self-confidence and ultimately leads to a poor quality of life.

‘’Can I come in Professor?’’

I looked up from my desk at my office at the Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts, where I was a professor of psychology, specialized in migration.

Secrets to Live Long


Life expectancy is on the rise in India, so is the proportion of older adults. In 2035, it will be about 20% of the whole population and is estimated to be 50% by 2050.

Happy International Day of the Elderly

The sky so vast with muted hues
Is a perfect foil for the serene moon

by ripples of endless clouds.

Awe-inspiring wondrous sight.

Patient Experience


“My father was admitted here in this hospital during the 2nd wave now my mother is admitted to the same hospital during the onset of the third wave. This hospital is maintaining all sorts of standards and protocol issued by the governance and ensuring the safety of its patients during the treatment period.

Kauvery is undoubtedly the best when it comes to Covid care and is 100% reliable hospital for treatment without a hole in your pocket. It’s the Best in city..!!”
