Yes! Tech-A-Break is all about fun. Its same for all the other entertainment events in Technopark. We should certainly encourage in conducting these kind of stress relievers amidst the hectic work schedules. But how about, when fun turns to tragedy?
We claims ” The Biggest IT Park “. Just think guys. Do we have a fully loaded multi-speciality Ambulance van? Yeah, we have a Maruthi Omni. We evidently did witnessed on how congested it was/is for a patient to take rest peacefully on its tiny bed. Patient is simply forced to keep his body parts in a crumple packed figure. Its in-fact a pathetic scene. How many people can go with him/her in that Omni to a well-nigh hospital? How equipped is that mini van in terms of trauma care. Its high time for us to think owning a much bigger Ambulance van with all world class facilities as we being the most reputable IT park in the country. Simple enough; Maruthi Omni has its own limitations!
Secondly, In this ” Biggest IT Park “, Do we have at least a mini Clinic (which works 12 hours a day with a doctor + nurses) for we fellow employees? Oh…Expenses matters huh? Come on Sir! Its the matter of ones valuable life. How much we are spending for simple-simple things daily. Why can’t we think of such kind of a life saving factor giving mere humane consideration? We do have recreation facilities for the employees; say for ex: Technopark Club, Food courts, Play ground, Open stage, Food quality claiming Restaurants etc, etc. Even the school where I studied had a better clinic. Is setting up a good health clinic that bad inside the Campus?
The truth & seeming current scenario is that, if one person is affected by sudden illness or when going in serious condition, he/she would be taken to the nearest hospital & thus does time lag. What if, when we have a Clinic inside the Campus itself handing the victim with proper first aids? Even if we need to take the victim to a major hospital nearby, this doctor & nurse can be of help inside the ambulance providing necessary treatment to the victim, till he/she reaches the hospital. This same doctor can even pass the patient’s current health status to the doctor of that got in hospital as well. Kindly be informed that its not the spectators, security guards, colleagues or the relatives who are supposed to be inside an Ambulance while on the way to the hospital, when the patient is badly in need of genuine medical help.
Thirdly, how equipped we were/are, when we contrive for such kind of a Mega event in terms of medical attention? Technopark is such a big community assuming over 22,000 professionals working round the clock. How good were/are we when it comes to the health concern management of all these hapless professionals who made Technopark the so called ” Biggest IT Park ” ???
Its really very sad for my dear colleague & friend, late Bhuvana SundarÂ (aged 24). He was dancing along with us/me in the rally. We/I didn’t know that this soon he……..
Please Sir. This is an eye opener. From childhood itself we all are hearing ‘Prevention is better than cure’. Anyhow, we lost our Bhuvana. But next time ahead, similar incident like this should never happen. We must need these prerequisites at any cost. If we are still justifying that we have ‘on call doctors’, we are very sorry to say NO!!!. Also, please don’t try to favor us with the word ‘Health Insurance’. Yes; Its been provided for each of the employees. But we know how tough it is to get or avail on its timely benefit.
There might be lot of other unnoticed things to plan & to execute still. We should be pro-active enough to defy it. Otherwise, loss will be huge none other than for the victim’s family alone, as they can’t recruit & replace for their beloved ones!!!
