This is a Students’ blog. It is a platform for us, the Students of School of Health Systems Studies (SHSS) to express our ideas; but please note the word “IDEA”. An idea, a product of human mind...there is no guarantee of it being right but that doesn’t mean that we cannot express it! The blog is not a peer-reviewed journal or a sponsored publication. That does mean something…it means that information here is the product of our brain which is under evolution at SHSS and it is UNPROOFED and UNREVISED.

While rushing through the paperwork in order to meet the submission deadline, when one feels hungry and not in a position to go out to dine, innumerable food outlets are at your service to deliver your meal at your doorstep. For Instance, this same person while relishing his meal gets an Angina pectoris. Will he be in a position to call for some immediate medical help (physician) at his doorstep, being in India? Why is it that today Indian Public is in a position to book a ticket in Tatkal, buy any commodity on Flipkart, order any food just by a call or a click, but when it comes to medical services in an emergency situation, it is still “out of coverage area” ?
