During my college days I used to host college festivals and many events
This gave me an opportunity to work as a host in the glamourous world with brands like VH1, Mtv and I am popularly known as mc- DD.
But my father always said that I should have a stable job and trust me fathers advice are always best.
So I completed my Physiotherapy course and got associated with the Indian railways team and Indian tennis circuit.
During Pandemic the situation around me was getting worst, people needed oxygen cylinders, beds, medicines and they were panicking with stress and anxiety. I was filled with such guilt as I was not able to help like many of my colleagues.
In my profession I work with individuals with long term or complex pain. It was important to empower people to manage pain condition at home amidst lockdown.
Also I believe preventing illness is important so I wanted to help people to get rid of this panic situation, I strongly feel with enough knowledge any fright can be reduced.
So I had to think out of the box to keep people active and spread awareness about pandemic in meaningful and different way.
I made informative reels with exercises for controlled coughing, breathlessness, lowering of SpO2, precautions to be taken that will help fight covid, Taking care of lungs when Covid positive.
Moreover with healthy use of technology preventive measures can be taken to educate people about covid and how they can manage at home. Because mild and moderate covid cases can be handeld at home.
I believe adapting digital tools will improve the ability to care for patients in future. Digital health is creating new opportunities for health services. Just make sure that the information you receive is completely accurate and not unrealistic which will benefit your health.
Health care workers across our nation are fighting Coronavirus. Supporting each other and coping every day.
These are real people overcoming extraordinary challenges and saving lives so my aim right now is to reduce the enormous load on our health system.
I feel proud and happy that with the help of my profession I can make such a difference during these challenging times!
