Embarrassed with the title. The Telehealth family in India was actually produced by dozens of fathers certainly not one single individual. Though the gestation period was an unbelievable 20 years the children have telescoped infancy, pre adolescence and adolescence into hardly 12 months and have emerged as an amazing group of children all fathers will be delighted with. We the founding fathers will in our life time hope to see the birth of a new generation , a new species *Homo telemedicus* . Even more amazing is the interest in the growth and development of Telehealth in India - outside India. We will no longer talk about Make In Bharath . We will not just talk. We will demonstrate that soon the world will strive to achieve India class . It will no longer be Made in India . It will be Made in India for the world !!
