A good book on a rainy day is happiness for me - Ruskin Bond

Sometimes, inspiration comes from unexpected quarters.

My hero of inspiration today is this middle aged person : Rama Brahmam of Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh who harnessed the technology for a social cause.

He is a clerk in the Nizam's Institute of Medical Sciences at Hyderabad dealing with the reimbursement of medical claims of govt. servants referred to NIMS from different corners of State. Tired of hearing the agonies of countless patients who walk through his office to know the status of their claims, he coined the idea of creating a blog in the year 2008 (which the Google is offering as a free service by which anybody with a google email can create a blog or web Log) to serve those people by putting the status of their medical claims and other related information online. Since then, he helped around 18 lakh families.

The dedication with which he is doing it is really marvellous. When he is unable to go to office on any day, he uses to send his son to office to get the information updated in his blog which is a rare gesture of government servants.

His idea of creating a blog using the available free technology for the larger good of society must draw inspiration to all . Though crippled with throat cancer which made a hole in his throat,  it did not dip his enthusiasm. There are so many such unsung heroes who have not got the attention due for them, but that makes a little difference in their mission.
