Lockdown is the blessing, I needed. It’s absolutely wonderful to see how people in lockdown are turning out to be a professional cook, picking up forgotten brushes, and exercising like yoga masters. I know how many people are hating lockdown.Well, personally, I am quite enjoying this time of my life. I must agree that this […]
Blog Post with Updates, Development and News about Dr Prem Jagyasi, DrPrem.com, Dr Prem and Associates, Businesses and Initiatives. Keep a watch on the page to know more about our blog updates.
I am proud to announce that DrPrem.com is now powered by the Google Cloud Platform and managed by Flywheel. Gone are the days when you wanted sites to load within three seconds, now they need to load instantaneously. DrPrem.com now loads within one second, in fact within 300ms. So you no longer have to wait more than an instant to glance through our entire content – how great is that!
Why do websites need speed today?
Viewers these days want an instantaneous experience, and according to recent study, people are just unwilling to wait even 2-3 seconds for a site to load. Keeping this in mind, I decided to cater to the needs of our readers, I spoke with Flywheels happiness engineers to tackle this challenge. So now with Flywheel’s exceptionally advance infrastructure by Google’s Cloud Platform, we are faster than ever.
Did you know? We server 5mn Page views.
We actually have 14.38mn Page Views on our 10+ servers, with 46mn requests every month. This demand massive servers and high end technology. Though officially and formally we only state that Dr Prem Guides and Magazines have 5mn page views, rightly so because all traffic on the internet is not human traffic, here is a screenshot by Cloudflare which will give you an exact picture of total page views on sites managed by us. Not all our sites are on Cloudflare, also we have many sites unlisted from our network, but together we server over 5mn page views. Impressive, isn’t it?
DrPrem.com alone has over 100,000 articles and all our guides and Web Magazines combine to have over 250,000 articles focusing on life improvements topics.
Our associated websites receive millions of viewers every day spending considerable time in website engagement. Because we are committed to provide life improving experience with our exceptional content, I guess user experience also play important role. Of course, all our 50+ web magazines have a very high ranking and great content but with new speed parameters, I am sure users will appreciate new experience. Needless to mention, the growing number of visitors is inspiring to create new websites for further value addition to the viewers.
How did we do it?
You may have noticed your own frustration when a site takes a long time to load, and if it takes very long, you might even give up and move on to another site. High loading time or information that loads partially makes website viewing frustrating. So, how did we do it? Let’s take a look.
First, we have simplified our development process and have put efforts and brain behind every single code we put it. We simply follow lean philosophy, anything that doesn’t make sense, it should not exist at first place. Are you tempted put hundreds of tools and plugins on your page, get rid of them, just focus on what your reader want and not what you want to show them off.
Second, we have opted for Managed hosting team at Flywheel, they have made my hosting experience ridiculously easy, something that I never witnessed before in last 18 years of hosting experience. In fact, here is my tweet to support this statement. On top of that Google Cloud’s Server when managed by flywheel empowered DrPrem.com websites helping us offer a great user experience even at low internet speeds.
Speed with no compromise on quality
My aim is to provide a seamless, smooth user experience. User experience is significant in product development, especially on the internet. The high-competitiveness in the web-world demands improved web interaction and engagement with user-friendly and convenient features which influence the user’s perceptions. So speed of loading is an important factor in enhancing user experience.
Why the Google Cloud Platform?
To have a competitive edge, a growing number of organizations are adopting google cloud services because this is the most cost-effective, secure and flexible solution where any platform or solution could be scaled instantly.
Google Cloud offers unmatched server solutions with notable advantages on
- Private Global Fiber Network
- Live Migration of Virtual Machines
- Improved Performance
- State-of-the-art security
- Dedication to continued expansion
- Redundant backups
Emphasizing enhanced user experience:
Google Cloud solutions
For valuing the engagement and interaction time of users and for taking it to a higher level, powering the websites with Google Cloud service platform seemed to be mandatory. Now any bit of information can be accessed from the knowledge-enriched websites in the least possible time.
Earlier, a surge of web traffic at specific times of the day hindered proper website viewing. Part of the information used to load and sometimes the images didn’t come clear, which affected the audience attention. Bounce rates shoot up. But with the Google cloud services, our websites are now highly scalable and have a better ability to handle the surge of web traffic.
The double layer of caching technology, an important feature of the Google Cloud helps in faster loading of websites bypassing a number of complex time-consuming processes. Google Cloud solutions work in an auto healing environment using the best of class CDN (Content Delivery Network).
Apart from quick access to information, the users will enjoy viewing the related images and infographics clearly. The 99.99% website uptime also contributes to better audience experience in website viewing.
The upgraded website also ensures a very high user data security which is a prime concern in the cyberworld. At least, from a business perspective, this is indispensable. Enhanced data security enables handing of thousands of concurrent connections that certainly help our business goals.
The objective of Google cloud powered websites is clear and simple – welcoming millions of more readers, giving them a satisfying web viewing/reading experience, and ensuring their data security.
We also Use Cloud flare technology to help us save from malicious traffic and attack. Did you know that 51% of internet traffic across the world is made of bots, malicious traffic and computer driven traffic. Of course, you want site to be accessed by search engine bots but you don’t want malicious traffic. So, we also dealt with this by burning our midnight oil.
Did you know Dr Prem has 10+ subdomain and over 100,000 articles?
Now, more than ever, people are visiting websites of their choice for work or entertainment or learning. To stay alive, any business which can go online has done so, or trying to do so. This global transition means that online traffic is going to increase manifolds. Web and mobile applications will be the new modes for business. This requires diversified tools and technology to manage complex business environment.
So, we opted for WordPress multisite technology to put all our guides as separate sites. For example, Dr Prem Medical Tourism Guide has separate dashboard and user interface than Dr Prem Wellness guide. Similarly, we have done for each of 10 Guide subsites. Here is list of some of our guides.
Moreover, we have Below subdomains with separate tools, technologies and servers to cater to different needs of our growing audience.
- on.drprem.com (URL Shortner)
- ideas.drprem.com (Ideas)
- cl.drprem.com (Clips)
- photo.drprem.com | My Photography | Must see it.
and many more which we use for our consultancy, monitoring and reporting businesses. Not all sites are hosted on similar servers or platform, we use multiple technologies and multiple solutions and 10+ servers.
PS: Its Quite a task to fit all we do in a small menu item. Check it out.
What new technologies do we have now?
This amazing new feature of Flywheel cloud is now available on DrPrem.com. With the help of this feature, all my sites will now ‘heal’ themselves – i.e. issues such as server issues, slow loading, going offline and other service failures will automatically be corrected within no time. My sites will not go down, even if there are PHP issues.
I was extremely impressed with the Auto-healing feature of Flywheel, as now I can have my peace of mind, and be relieved of the hassle of issues which led to the websites not functioning as they should and their slowing down.
Now, with the Auto-healing feature, I will be able to provide my readers a service which is never down. My readers/viewers will now be able to access DrPrem.com continuously, and as smoothly as ever without having to even think about certain issues again, as Flywheel will ‘heal’ these as soon as they occur.
This feature will be available on my entire network, so my clients too would enjoy the benefit. It will allow DrPrem.com to serve them even better than before, as a site which is never down. For every reason this is a great asset both for us and our partners in the business.
All the millions of viewers, which are increasing every day, will be able to access my sites which are impressively resilient.
Instant scaling technology:
Another awesome feature that I will now be able to provide to all my users is absolutely zero downtime, even though we will be continuously scaling up our websites to attend to millions of new visitors. You will never have to see a message like ‘Site being updated’ due to migration or upgradation. Our marketing success will continue to improve by leaps and bounds due to our websites’ incredible capability to scale up even though we may have extremely high traffic. Of course, excluding scheduled maintenance.
Remarkable caching technology by FlyCache:
Caching is one of the reasons why a website is slow or fast. Faster caching means faster sites. With the aid of Flywheel’s caching technology, FlyCache, the caching of our DrPrem.com’s sites would become more efficient than ever.
Talk about speeds and this caching engine is so powerful that it makes WordPress sites incredibly fast. It works with the Fastly CDN to serve the cached content from different global POP (points of presence). Why it works so fast is that if you or any other person from anywhere in the world visit any of my websites, you will receive files which are closest to you geographically, thus reducing load time to almost nil! You will have superb high quality digital experience, wherever you may be located on the globe.
Flywheel cache is able to cache WordPress site pages when it’s required without any headache. If your website is an associated website on my network, then you will gain access to this new technology, and you can also offer ultimate user experience to your customers! And all this happens automatically, you don’t have to do a thing.
As Flycache applies caching exclusions for the common WordPress plugins, you don’t have to manually configure it or write to customer support.
With the Smart Refresh paired with FlyCache, and via DrPrem.com, readers will be able to view the latest content, while the rest of the site is highly cached and of course, blazing fast!
To top this up we also use WPRocket, an incredibly beautiful plugin to help you make your caching experience better. This plugin has ultra-features to help speed up your site.
Better CDN/Content Delivery Network to My Customers
I am offering same technology and solutions to my clients and customer with free CDN to all my customers on the new Cloud platform. Existing customers can get the same benefit with the CDN add-on and receive free CDN during their upgrade. Our CDN now offers full-page caching, including the full HTML of the pages.
Powered by Fastly, which is the industry leader in CDN, all our websites now have vastly improved time to first byte. This means that the loading time is faster with this new functionality. The moment a user clicks on our site, he or she will be able to access our site in less than a second. This would not only improve the user experience, but also our rank in the Google search, as the responsiveness of the website is another category which is taken into consideration by Google while ranking sites.
And this does wonders for our SEO too, which in turn is great for my clients’ SEO! People are browsing the net more than ever nowadays, and it has become even more important for visibility. I am sure now that my sites will now be accessed by more readers, while they search for meaningful content.
Along with the above-mentioned offers, another feature that is on the cards is the staging feature, which I will be including on all my plans, from the smallest to the biggest.
These days, every visit to the site is critical, and my new association with Google Cloud Platform, ensures that all my sites will have high availability and high redundancy, without having to upgrade the DNS or migrating.
With all these new features, DrPrem.com has now firmly taken the step into the future. I aim to keep on using the latest in web development to deliver the best to all my sites users. We have always been one step ahead of the rest and with our commitment to provide an effortless, smooth experience, we will continue to do so.
Please Browse through DrPrem.com to experience the difference and if you ever have a requirement to build a website within your budget, we are here to help you out with our incredible team.
Thanks, you all for helping us becoming better every day.
I (Dr Prem Jagyasi) am writing this message of appreciation for the efforts BMC team (in particular R South Ward) and private healthcare industry for the case of Mr. Ashok Gupta. It has come to notice that some people with vested information are spreading wrong information because of misinterpretation and hence this message should provide clarification to all.
Mr. Ashok Gupta was found asymptomatic Covid positive at Hinduja and was asked to report to BMC for further treatment. The family went to the Seven Hills Hospitals but since the patient needed dialysis and had a pacemaker Seven Hills couldn’t admit the patient, rightly so. During this time, the BMC Health team AMO R South Ward, in particular, Dr. Pratima was in touch with the patient’s family and me.
We had to find another hospital and given my relationship with private hospitals I contacted as many as 8 hospitals. Dr. Pratima also reached out to many hospitals. All of them were co-operative and supportive. However, the case of Mr. Ashok Gupta was a different one. Some other friends and family members of the patient were also involved to support Mr Gupta.
Eventually, Nanavati hospital and team (Special mention to Mr Mohit Jain) were kind enough to understand the difficulties and they created a special bed for patient with appropriate medical facilities. It did take a day to arrange for everything but since the patient was asymptomatic and didn’t have any serious issues, it didn’t pose any problem. I have spoken with family personally and all of them are doing well. Dr. Pratima and BMC team did their best to get the patient admitted, and they deserve appreciation and respect.
Dear Team BMC, I am writing you this message to thank you for putting the best efforts during this challenging time. I am aware some of your team members are working till late night away from family. You have our utmost respect. The family wants to convey their word of gratitude towards everyone working in your team.
Dear private Healthcare, My special appreciation for all your support and sincere efforts. The team at Nanavati was so co-operative that they went out of their way to create a special bed for this patient, my heartfelt respect for them. I also thanks to Kokilaben, HN Reliance, Fortis and other hospitals who listened to this case and extended support.
Apart of this, I have learnt from the family that the Samta Nagar local police authorities were also very co-operative in this particular case stepping in with the best support. The Whispering Palm Building society also realized the gravity of the case and has extended the best of care for the family.
Please read below Message from Family members.
Dear Dr. Pratima, I would like to highlight and acknowledge the help and guidance provided by various parties. The first day was difficult since we were not able to get admission in Seven Hills despite the best efforts of everyone, including BMC, since there was a shortage of beds for dialysis patients. However, the next day we were able to get admission in Nanavati through the help of our relatives, friends, Dr Pratima, Dr. Prem, doctors and concerned staff from Nanavati hospitals involved and AMO RS ward as well. BMC was also in regular touch with Nanavati Hospital and also guided us during the process. I would like to also acknowledge the efforts of local parties’ representatives in drawing attention to the issues we were facing which helped rally around further support for us. BMC as well as the police officials from Samta Nagar Police Station, have been continuously in touch with us since the first day to check on the progress.
Given the above, there is no reason to create a media stir spreading dissatisfaction or false representation of the case. It’s unfortunate that some of our community members and ill-motivated people do not see the efforts but are trying to create a stir. I, therefore, request all to come together and appreciate the efforts of humankind in battling this challenging situation. On behalf of the family, I thank everyone for their timely support.
Dr Prem Jagyasi
Are you struggling to run your small business or professional services because of lockdown? Here is my podcast with 7 simple yet incredible suggestions to help you get going.
Listen to complete podcast here
1. BE OPEN AND SUPPORTIVE TO EMPLOYEES – Remember your employees are your biggest asset, not your buildings, equipment, office space. Take care of them, make sure they are comfortable. If they could work, motivate them and support them to work from comfortable environment with easy reporting. Give them freedom and keep them stress free.
2. STAY CONNECTED WITH CUSTOMERS – Lockdown only means you can’t go out, it never means you can’t reach out to your customer, remain connected with your customer/clients, or ask them what they might need during this time. You can always carry out more analytical tasks like research, learning, strategy development, relationship building.
3. ADAPT YOUR BUSINESS – GO VIRTUAL – Which is the biggest smart collaborative application being downloaded right now? It’s actually a webinar app, because companies, schools and authorities all are going virtual. It’s right time for you to adopt these new technologies.
4. WORK WITH YOUR COMPETITION – This is perfect time to forget about competition and embrace coopetition? Coopetition is the act of cooperation between competing companies; businesses that engage in both competition and cooperation are said to be in coopetition. How about jointly dong some activity to keep market active, keep industry motivated. This is not a time for competition.
5. BUSINESSES ARE LONG TERM, CRISES SHORT TERM – Remember we have gone through this, crises have been here previously as well. I have personally witnessed 2008 recession, we weathered it, and we will weather this one as well. Important for you is to understand that business are built on long term sustainable strategy. Use tactics to achieve short term objectives but don’t change your long term strategy
6. CONNECT WITH EXPERTS, JOIN TRAINING, LIST YOUR SERVICES – This is perfect time to connect with experts. For instance, with all my travels being on halt, I am now more available to share my views/opinion with industry colleagues, and reach out to industry experts. Also it’s perfect time to engage yourself and team in training program. Many companies like us are offering free courses. We have 100+ courses available for you absolutely free – check our training website in comments. Also this is perfect time to list your business in online directories.
7. BE ACTIVE – This is the time where you surely slowdown and look at things from short term perspective; but don’t sleep whole time, don’t go in bunker, as you need to remain active. Be active professionally, think about activities that you were not able to do for your businesses.
Let’s do it together. Working together always works.
Transparency of care in medical tourism is a very essential component of overall success. Since medical tourism involves patients traveling across the border, it might not be possible for a patient to collect all necessary information in advance about healthcare indicators at the destination. Hence, it’s essential that healthcare service provider should provide the necessary information in utmost transparent manners to protect the patient and medical tourism industry. Read more
In our recent study conducted by a very efficient team, we discovered that many healthcare organizations charge higher prices to international patients, and practice inconsistency to price transparency. While many price studies are conducted based on general prices for national patients, there is a need for a new study, which gives a clear picture. Read more

Carve Your Life narrates Dr. Prem’s signature Carvism principles, his detailed description of ‘Self-Carving Qualities’, ways to ‘Shape Your Mind’, and the process to ‘Find Your Passion’. According to the author, our lives are nowadays choked by unnecessary accumulations, because of which we are unable to ‘uncover’ the true purpose of our life; once we do this, we will enjoy a quality life to the fullest. Hence, carving out a lean life is the only way forward.
The author, Dr. Prem Jagyasi, an award-winning global leader and acclaimed life coach, has delivered keynote speeches and conducted focused workshops in several countries. He is renowned for delivering succinct and customized Carve Your Life training programmes.

In appreciation of the book, Bhagyashree said, “Sometimes we form very unrealistic definition of success. More than accumulation, it should be about contribution towards life. Follow your heart, but do it with conviction, courage, compassion and commitment. In Dr Prem Jagyasi’s Carvism principles, we can find great suggestions about how we can scrape out everything unnecessary from our lives and keep only those things that complete us, and ultimately help us in living a meaningful life.
The rising need for practical, no-nonsense books and media with relevant life-inspiring content has grown exponentially in recent decades.
