Hartek Group Celebrates Women’s Day by Honouring Achievers Who Fought All Odds

By Tricitynews Reporter
Chandigarh 06th March:- In a glowing tribute to womanhood on the occasion of International Women’s Day, the Chandigarh-based Hartek Group, one of India’s fastest growing concerns in the power sector, today honored women achievers from the region who have stood against the tidebroken male bastions and never looked back.
At a special “Celebrating Womanhood” felicitation ceremony organized here by women employees of the Hartek Group, Chandigarh Mayor Asha Kumari Jaswal honored the outstanding women achievers with mementos, commendation certificates and cash awards. Appreciating the initiative taken by the Hartek Group, the Mayor said that such women are the pride of our society. We should draw attention to their inspiring success stories at every given opportunity so that they act as role models for other women.
The awardees included Manjit Kaur, an ambulance driver in Jalandhar who forayed into male bastion by taking up this job nine years ago to support her family after her husband suffered a paralytic attack, Mandeep Kaur, who broke yet another male bastion by becoming a Chandigarh Transport Undertaking (CTU) bus conductor two years ago but not before facing stiff resistance from her family members, Dolly, who works as a security guard at a city hotel where she also does night shifts to support her family of five, and Radha Devi, the sole breadwinner of her family who has been running a tea stall in Sector 34, Chandigarh, for the past 10 years to repay her family’s loan and support her seven siblings.
Congratulating women employees of the Hartek Group who were the spirit behind the “Celebrating Womanhood” ceremony, Keerti Singh, Director, Human Resources, Hartek Group, said that we are proud of you for taking the initiative to observe Women’s Day in such a wonderful way. Women are equal partners in India’s growth story, and we need to empower them to empower the New India.
Narrating how adversity brought out the real fighter in her, Manjit said that nine years ago, her life crashed into chaos when her husband suffered a paralytic attack. But she stood as a rock to take on the challenges life had brought her way. She worked as a maid in houses till she had enough money to buy an ambulance of her own. But as Manjit soon realized, working as an ambulance driver is not easy if you are a woman, especially at night. She have been attacked a number of times while on night duty, but her fighting spirit has kept her going. She also faced a lot of opposition from her brothers who were dead against this job.
The Hartek Group had observed Women’s Day last year by organizing a free breast cancer screening and awareness camp in association with the PGI at the anganwadi in Bapu Dham Colony, Chandigarh.

Decision Regarding Health Needs To Be Taken with Sensitivity:Jagannath Shinde

By Tricitynews Reporter
Chandigarh 06th March:- Network of online medicine sell is spreading all over the country. President of All India Organisation of Chemist and Druggist (AIOCD) Jagannath Shinde has raised question, why government is ignoring issue related to health of citizens as decision needs to be taken with sensitivity, does such emergency is prevailing in the country that online medicine of drug has been commenced immediately? Point wise memorandum has been submitted by the AIOCD to Deputy Secretary of Central Ministry of Health and Family Welfare K. L. Sharma on draft guidelines framed by the Central Government regarding E-Pharmacy.
Online Sell of Drugs should not be looked from the perspective of discount, as long term and unrecoverable rights and security of the customers should also be taken into the consideration. In reality the central government has fixed profit of drug sellers and selling medicines at further discount raises doubts about the quality of the medicines. This competition is unreasonable with question mark over dignity and existence of 8 lakh drug sellers.
AIOCD has presented memorandum to the Secretary of Central Health Ministry in Delhi, pointing out truth and shortcomings in the business of drug sells. Committee established under DCGI should not only have representatives of regulatory bodies but persons from all the quarters of the business should be included in them. New central authority has been proposed for online drug sell in the draft of Central Government which is against the principles of decentralisation of the authority.
 Rural areas of the country don’t have adequate facilities off health along with lack of highly qualified doctors, thus Central Government needs to focus on strengthening of regulatory mechanism which is weak. Memorandum with various points like Laboratory, IT centre, Law Unit to examine the quality of medicines has been submitted.
Draft needs to be inclusive of issues like entry of drug mafia, youth getting attracted to drug addicts, interest of the customers, social interest of HIV patients, health protection of buyers etc., even though the Central Government is intended to make medicines available all over. President of All India Organisation of Chemist and Druggist Jagannath Shinde has made a clear demand that the proposed amendments to Drug and Cosmetic Act of 1940 or rule 1945 and permission to online sell of drugs should be withhold till draft is amended and objections raised by the AIOCD are addressed by the Central Government.

Dr Harpreet S Gill Performs First Ever Complex Reverse Shoulder Replacement Surgery

By Tricitynews Reporter
Chandigarh 06th March:- A complex Reverse shoulder replacement surgery was performed at SPS Hospitals, Ludhiana by Dr Harpreet S Gill, Head of Joint replacement and Orthopaedic Department.
According to Dr Harpreet S Gill, this was performed for the first time in the region North of Delhi. Reverse Shoulder Replacement is the new treatment for shoulder fractures in elderly, in cases of arthritis of shoulder with muscle tears or in certain complex shoulder problems and in those where the normal shoulder replacement has failed.
Surgery was performed on a 72-year-old female from Patiala. She was having shoulder pain for the last 8-10 years and had tried all sorts of treatment but to no avail.  All the movements of her shoulder were lost and even slight movement of shoulder caused pain. She was unable to sleep for hours because of severe pain and her activities of daily living were comprised. Now at about 2 months post reverse shoulder replacement she is pain free and has regained her shoulder movements.
Dr Harpreet S Gill, who has been trained at Johns Hopkins University Hospital, USA for this says that in the west too, this type of shoulder replacement started around 10 years back and is now being done routinely. However, in India this surgery is still in early stage as the patient awareness is less and the doctor training for such surgery is lacking in India.
The reverse shoulder uses a ball and socket joint as well, but the ball is placed on the shoulder blade and cup on top of the arm bone. This is reverse of our normal anatomy, and thus the name.

सम्पूर्ण मानव समाज में नारी का कोई जोड़ नहीं:श्री वीपीएस राव

By Tricitynews Reporter
Chandigarh 06th March:- पंचकूला में रहने वाले श्री वीपीएस राव ने ही  में पिंजौर में आयोजित अंतर्राष्टीय महिला दिवस पर  विशेष कार्यक्रम की अध्यक्षता करते हुए अपने अध्यक्षीय भाषण में सर्वप्रथम 2001 में अंतर्राष्टीय महिला दिवस को 'मातृ शक्ति पर्व' का नाम दिया था। अध्यात्म-संस्कृति रत्न से सम्मानित और संस्कृति बोध संघ के संस्थापक श्रीराव कई पुस्तकें लिख चुके हैं। जिन पर कई स्कॉलर्स ने  शोध कार्य किया है तथा कई कर रहें हैं।
डॉ. विनोद कुमार ने श्रीराव से अंतर्राष्टीय महिला दिवस पर गहराई से विशेष चर्चा के लिए मुलाकात की और अंतर्राष्टीय महिला दिवस कई महत्वपूर्ण तथ्यों पर विचार साँझा किये। श्रीराव ने बताया कि  यह नाम भारतीय सन्दर्भ में अधिक उपयुक्त है। पश्चिमी देशों में महिलाओं को 'वीकर सेक्स' माना जाता है। वहां महिलाओं ने अपने अस्तित्व की पहचान को सशक्त करने के लिए कई अभियान चलाए और निश्चित किया कि  अंतर्राष्टीय महिला दिवस पर इकठ्ठा होकर योजनाबद्ध नीति से महिलाओं के अधिकारों की मांग की जाये और महिला सशक्तिकरण के लिए हर संभव प्रयत्न किये जाएं किन्तु भारतीय संस्कृति में नारी को शक्ति माना गया है। यहाँ शक्ति के रूप में नारी की पूजा हुई है। नारी के विभिन्न रूपों जैसे बेटी, बहन, पत्नी इत्यादि में सबसे ज्यादा महत्वपूर्ण मातृ रूप है। इसलिए इस दिवस को यदि  महत्वपूर्ण बनाना है तो इसका नाम मातृ शक्ति पर्व होना चाहिए। महिलाओं के अनेक प्रकार के योगदानों में उनकी 'माता' के रूप में जो अत्यन्त महत्वपूर्ण भूमिका है वह वास्तव में ही अद्वितीय है, उसका सम्पूर्ण मानव समाज में कोई जोड़ नहीं।
नारी सम्यक की जननी ही नहीं अपितु उसके बहुर्मुखी विकास में पुरुष की अनिवार्य सहयोगिनी भी है और ईश्वरीय विधान के अनुसार मानव जाति को वांछित दिशा में अग्रसर करने हेतु महत्वपूर्ण माध्यम। श्रीराव ने बताया कि यह ठीक है कि दैव ने नर- नारियों को सामान्यतः जोड़ों के रूप में भेजा है। एक दूसरे  के अभाव में वे दोनों ही अपूर्ण हैं और दोनों के जीवन की सार्थकता प्रतिकूलता में नहीं अनुकूलता में है, शुष्कता में नहीं माधुर्य में है और वियोग में नहीं संयोग में है। अतः व्यापक रूप में समाज-कल्याण दोनों के लिए मिलजुल करना ही वांछित हैं, जिन्हें भारतीय ऋषियोंमुनियों, मनीषियों और समाज-शास्त्रियों ने बड़े गहन एवं सूक्ष्म अध्ययन , मनन, चिंतन और अनुसन्धान के पश्चात प्रकट किया है, जो पाश्चात्य बुद्धिजीवी  नहीं कर सके। यही कारण है कि वहां अनेक प्रकार के सुख साधनों, प्रसाधनों, इत्यादि के होते हुए भी अशांति और तृप्ति का साम्राज्य है। संतुष्टि और संतृप्ति की खोज में वे भारतीय संतों, महात्माओं की शरण में आते हैं। दुःख से छुटकारा और सुख की प्राप्ति हेतु मानव मन और प्राकृतिक रहस्यों का जो अत्यन्त उच्चकोटि का अध्ययन, अवलोकन और विश्लेषण भारतवर्ष में हुआ है उसी के कारण इसकी एक अपनी पहचान है।
श्रीराव ने कहा कि भारतीय महिलाएं इस क्षेत्र में सम्पूर्ण महिला-समाज का मार्ग दर्शन कर सकती हैं। भारतीय महिलाओं को भी वास्तविक पहचान पाश्चात्य विचारधारा, तौर-तरीकों, रहन-सहन के ढंगों, वेश-भूषा, आचार- व्यवहार का अनुगमन करने में नहीं, अपितु अपनी निजी संस्कृति को भली - भांति समझ-बूझ कर , उस पर चलकर, उसे व्यवहार में ला कर, उनका मार्गदर्शन करने में है। इसलिए भारतवर्ष में 8 मार्च को मातृ शक्ति पर्व
के रूप में ही मनाना चाहिए।
