How Covid 19 Patients are treated in Hospitals?

How Covid 19 Patients are treated in Hospitals?

The WhatsApp wonderbox is sending plenty of News/tips/life experience and even terrifying sick videos of Covid19 patients struggling to breath on ICU beds & rolling on floor. Every time you sneeze or cough you may feel that you are infected by Corona virus and going to die soon!

Similarity between Covid19 & Dengue

Those who had Dengue fever know how it feels to be deadly sick (sever headache, high fever, nausea, unbearable joint pain etc.) Dengue is infected and spread by a mosquito, whereas Covid-19 is spread through common cold & flu virus called Corona. There is no medicine or preventive vaccination for Dengue, only supportive medical care is available. The same is the case with Corona too.

The darkness of Covid19 defeated by 9 lamps!

Covid-19 patients are treated through supportive medications, mostly by boosting immunity (body’s natural ability to fight enemies like bugs, virus, bacteria etc) No wonder that in many foreign countries people are buying Immune Defence products these days to combat Corona virus!

Information from patients recovering from the Hospital …

Every day Corona patients are provided with…

1. Take Vit C & Vitamin E
2. Zinc supplement
3. 10:00 – 11:00 sunlight for 15-20 minutes.
4. Egg/Milk one item
5. Take a rest / get a 7-8 hour minimum.
6. Drink 1.5 L of water daily and every meal should be warm (not cold).

That’s how Covid-19 patients are treated and most importantly how majority of them recovered.

This is to tell all of us that the pH for the coronary virus varies from 5.5 to 8.5

What we need to do, to defeat the coronary virus, is to consume more alkaline foods above the virus’s pH level.

Some of them are:

* Lemon – 9.9 pH
* Lime – 8.2 pH
* Avocados – 15.6 pH
* Garlic – 13.2 pH *
* Mango – 8.7pH
* Tangerine – 8.5pH
* Pineapple – 12.7 pH
* Dandelion – 22.7 pH
* Orange – 9.2 pH

How did you know you had a coronavirus? The Symptoms

1. Itching in the throat
2. Dry throat
3. Dry cough
4. High temperature
5. Shortness of breath
6. Loss of smell and taste

So when you pay attention to these things quickly take warm water with lemon and drink.

The Importance of drinking Panaka

You can also drink a delicious drink called Panaka (in Kannada) Panakam (in Malayalam) primarily made of black pepper & jaggery. This drink is consumed during the time of Rama Navami festival.

Youtube shows many varieties of Panaka. You can add Ginger, lemon, cardamom, basil (tulasi) for added flavour and taste. It should be pepper heavy, you should feel the burning sensation of spiciness in your mouth & throat. The spicy steam should come out from your ears and nose for maximum effect!

Panaka is normally made with cold water, however it’s better to boil the water and drink it warm or hot. For kids add more jaggery or honey.

Do not keep this information to yourself. Give to all your family and friends.

Status of Madikeri Sampaje Ghat Road

I wanted to go home (Kasaragod) last month, but could not go due to closed roads. Shiradi Ghat  (Mangalore Bangalore highway) and Sampaje ghat (Mysore- Mani highway NH 275) were closed due to massive landslide after ‘flood of the century’ in Coorg and Kerala

Recently both ghat roads are opened for light motor vehicles, so I took a chance.

The Madikeri Ghat road has been made ‘one-way’ for the time being. So, if you want to go to Mangalore, you have to take left-turn towards Virajpete and connect to Mangalore highway through Bhagamandala/Talakaveri road. That’s around 5km extra drive.


Maximum damages took place near Jodupala waterfalls. I have taken 360 degree video. Surprisingly, lots of people are coming here just to watch the disaster. Not many people are bothered about raising fuel price!

I think these damages simply cannot happen due to excessive rain and resulting flooding. This area always gets lots of rain every year. Perhaps earthquake was the reason?

Visit to Coimbatore GD Naidu Car Museum

Visit to Coimbatore GD Naidu Car Museum

Brother came from Muscut for his annual holiday and came to Mysore. It was raining almost everywhere so I decided that visiting low-rainy places like Coimbatore (Coimbattoor in Kannada and Tamil) would be good idea. I quickly booked Hotel through at ‘Holiday Residency’. It is a hotel, not resort.

We visited GD Naidu (GEE DEE) car museum. Photos taken from my iPhone8. Indoor pics, hence photo quality isn’t great

Isha Foundation & Dhyanalingam

We also visited to Sadguru’s Isha Foundation.  If you are into spirituality this is a must see place in Coimbatore. Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev spent massive resources to construct ‘Dhyanalingam‘ and ‘Shiva Statue‘ which was recently inaugurated by PM Modi.

Took a selfie infront of lord Paramatma. Not the best place for selfie!

Below are some more pics.


We travelled on this massive bull cart from Shiva statue to Dhyanalinga temple. Around 500 meters journey took almost 10 minutes. It was drizzling, cold and was a joy ride!

I wanted to touch this Nandi (Desi Bull) but kart operator did not allow

Malampuza Dam

From Coimbatore we went to Palakkad district (Kerala) to see Malampuza Dam (Malapuya, Mayapuza) which is the second largest earth dam in Kerala.

This dam is must visit place if you have kids. Cable car (ropeway) is the main attractions besides toy train. Watch the video below for virtual thrilling experience


Gypsy Makeover Done

Gypsy Makeover Done

Never thought that it can take so much time. After months of frustration and missing all the deadlines, Gypsy gets final makeover.

Here is the final render

Now the cost info

I had pay 60k for painting and another 20K for tinkering and miscellaneous works. Probably spent another 20k for some parts and accessories. So, that makes another 100K.

I have managed sell old Mag-wheels for Rs 25K which helped me to cover some cost.

Till date, more than 5 lakh was spent on this Gypsy… am I mad?

Rain Rain Gone Away

Rain Rain Gone Away

Rain, rain go away….

… and finally it seems like gone!

Bangalorian’s were cursing the record breaking rain which fell during the last month. Thankfully, in north Bangalore we haven’t seen much of flooding. Babu Reddy of Fast Wheels hasn’t shown any interest in completing my Gypsy’s painting. Hence I decided to check my luck on another Garage.

Zukova Automobiles on Vidyranyapura road (Near Nanjappa Circle) is the Garage where the Gypsy is lying now battling for survival. I dropped Gypsy there on first week of September and was promised that it would be done within 20 days. I gave them 10 days more to finish it properly. After almost 3 months the work has barely started!

Rain, Dengue fever for wife and lots of travel between Mysore and Bengaluru made me lose interest on Gypsy all together. Now the whole exercise seems to be unnecessary burden on me.

December 20th is the deadline I set for finishing the work. It would be a miracle if I get it by then. This Garage doesn’t have  a painter on their payroll, instead employs a contract painter. He comes at his own convenient time!

Below is the some working in progress pics

Update of 9/12/2017

Finally, some meaningful progress is taking place at the worst possible time. Zukova’s painter finally appeared and started work. For my surprise, today they finished primer application on the outer body.

Next Tuesday I’m going to Kumta to attend a marriage and will be back on Thursday night only. If they continue working I’ll miss it for 3 days.

Independence Day Marathon

Independence Day Marathon

Gypsy comes back to Bangalore sooner than anticipated. 4 days of continuous holiday for kids made me to visit home. We traveled by bus on Friday night and reached home Saturday morning. On Monday visited famous Madhur Ganapati Temple  (Madoor Siddivinayaka) in Kasaragod.

A small river (runnel) flows behind the temple mostly during monsoon and completely dries-up in December. When you visit a place, having a proof is important. Here is the selfless selfie!

On Tuesday morning (August 15th) we left home early morning (6.30 AM is early for me 😉 ) Since I had to visit my Mysore Flat I chose Madikeri road (Sampaje Ghat). For breakfast we stopped at Santrupti Restaurant in Sullia (Sulya) Perhaps, this is the only good veg restaurant between Puttur-Madikeri road (Google map location)

The restaurant serves very good veg foods and my daughter Avani loves yummy Masale Dose!

Jodupala Abbikolli Water Fall

For a short break I stopped at Jodupala  water fall. Although I drove through this route numerous times, it was almost 10 years ago that when I last stopped over here!

Water Fall Gallery: Click to enlarge

The break was refreshing & soothing as it was not raining. Watch the short video clip below.

We reached Kengeri around 7PM. Ohh god, it was raining cats and dogs. On NICE road (Kengeri- Tumkur road strech) almost nothing was visible.  As I continued to drive my feet was getting soaked well with all the water seepage.  Hehe, Gypsy is meant for these conditions… we reached Yelahanka home around 8.30 PM.

More than 14 hours of journey was tiring. Indeed I was very tired but  couldn’t sleep sooner as I was still hearing Gypsy’s drrrrrroooooooommmmmm sound even after closing eyes!
