Zee Business Dhamadar Diwali: On the occasion of Diwali, one of the widely celebrated festivals in India, Zee Business salutes the dynamic individuals and startups who have led innovative initiatives in various fields. Bengaluru based startup EdYoda, a digital e-learning platform, is trying to bridge the gap between talent and the employees by proving zero- cost learning to students and fresh graduates and helping enterprises to reduce the cost of hiring.
Today, there are thousands of students with an engineering degree who are unemployed and waiting to be employed. According to a study by the Skills India Report, only 57 percent of the engineering graduates are employable. This is a huge setback for a developing country such as India that has many international IT companies in India. Another study points out that of 10,000 engineers, 60 percent of the country’s engineering graduates end up in jobs that do not even require an engineering degree.
The only reason for this situation is because there is a major mismatch between what is taught in the majority of engineering colleges and what the market place needs.

Medtalks, a digital platform, provides expert answers to patient queries from highly-qualified and reputed doctors across India, simplifying and spreading medical awareness among the public. Today, India has less than one doctor for over 1000 patients (WHO recommends a minimum doctor to patient ration of 1:1000). A majority of Indian population still resides in non-urban or far flung areas where the doctor-patient ratio is even more skewed than that in the urban areas.
The absence of qualified medical advice makes people to either rely upon quacks or other sources. Many even resort to self-medication and diagnosis by searching on Google based on the symptoms (more than 1% of Google search traffic belongs to this category). This self-diagnosis and medication can cause more problems, the startup said. This is because more often than not similar symptoms could have multiple causes and in the absence of a qualified medical analysis, can lead to incorrect, harmful and potentially fatal outcomes. For example, long-term self-consumption of antibiotics might severely compromise the body’s immune system leading to further complications instead of any relief.
This is the one of the core problems that Medtalks is addressing by providing an ever-expanding video bank (1500 plus videos already). Through this, renowned medical professionals answer basic health-related queries of patients.
