The satirical track, featuring ENT specialist Dr Jagdish Chaturvedi, forms part of Practo’s continued effort to spread awareness about safety, hygiene and social distancing
Bengaluru, 28 December, 2020: Practo, India’s leading digital healthcare company, has released a new rap song, titled ‘#Flashback2020’, marking the end of a year that saw the entire world in the grip of a pandemic on a positive note.
Created in collaboration with Dr Jagdish Chaturvedi – who besides being an ENT surgeon is also a stand-up comedian and writer – the latest track is a satirical round-up of the year that has just gone by. The special number forms part of a campaign by Practo that aims at reminding people that the pandemic is not over yet and that they should continue taking precautions and maintain ‘2 gaz ki doori’.
In his inimitable style, Dr Jagdish takes the audience back and forth in time, from the beginning of the lockdown phase when the virus jostled us into taking a hard look at the way we live, work and interact with each other. Peppered with humour and witty remarks, the video nudges us to take a moment and reflect on our recent past before we step into the new year.
The campaign is a concerted effort to spread awareness about safety and hygiene measures, and reinstates the fact that even as the launch of vaccines brings a lot of hope, we will have to continue fighting till the disease is completely eradicated.
Commenting on the new rap song, Dr Jagdish said, “It doesn’t always happen that a doctor turns a rapper to convey a healthcare message. ‘#Flashback2020’ will always remain close to my heart, given that we are trying to put a smile on people’s faces and bring some positivity while we continue to wade through gloomy times.”
The video is live and can be viewed on Practo’s Youtube, blog, and social media channels.
