Sony SAB’s Jijaji Chhat Per Hain: Will Pancham Lose His Job

By Tricitynews
Chandigarh 19th July:- Sony SAB's comedy drama “Jijaji Chhat Per Hain” has kept viewers hooked with its hilarious plot twists and a fascinating narrative. In the upcoming episodes, Elaichi will be seen mocking Pancham and hurting his self-respect, leading to an unexpected turn of events.
Elaichi (Hiba Nawab) repeatedly irks Pancham (Nikhil Khurana), asking him to leave the house if there is even an ounce of self-respect left in him. Hearing this, Pancham loses his cool and in the heat of the moment, decides to leave the house. Pintoo (Harvir Singh), however, stops him from doing so.
Pancham goes to Murari (Anup Upadhyay) and tells him that he has decided to quit his job. Murari does not allow Pancham to quit, since he believes that Pancham and Chutanki are responsible for his flourishing business-something that Mausa brainwashes him into thinking.
Commenting on the upcoming track, Nikhil Khurana portraying Pancham’s character, said that Elaichi will get on his  nerves and make him want to leave the house and even quit his job, something that Murari is absolutely against. How the story unravels is something that viewers will witness in the future episodes.

Chandigarh 19th July:- Our primary concern is the safety of our children” with this view, the tiny tots of Kindergarten block of St. Joseph’s Sr. Sec. School, Sector 44 D, Chandigarh, were shown a short movie on Child Safety and were given a talk about Good Touch and Bad Touch. Children were guided with the help of mannequins about their private parts and who can touch them and when.
Teachers explained them the difference between a good and a bad touch and if someone touches them and they feel bad or uncomfortable- they should say aloud ‘NO’ or ‘Scream’ and run away from there. They also came to know about the “Safe Circle” that consisted of their father, mother and certain people about whom their parents ensure them to trust and tell everything. They should not hide anything from them. This ‘safe circle’ people would always be there to love, help and protect them against any untoward incident.  It is the right time to make our little ones aware of this harsh reality and make them alert and cautious always. It is well said “Teach the children so that it will not be necessary to teach the adults”.

Founder of Pumpkart Achieves Rare Honour for Tricity: Represents India at Prestigious UN Meet

By Tricitynews
Chandigarh 19th July:- India is the land of opportunities as it will emerge as the startup hub by 2023. Investors should invest more on startups and startup communities, as Indiais a land of opportunities, said Pumpkart Founder and CEO, K S Bhatia at a high powered Global  event  at the United Nations Headquarters.
K S Bhatia who is from Chandigarh, was representing the country at the SDG(Sustainable Development Goals) Business Forum held at the United Nations headquarters. It is one of the World's major business led events. He was a leading panelist, an official speaker, along with some other prominent speakers like John Denton, Secretary General of International Chamber of Commerce, Arancha Gonzalez, Executive Director of International Trade Center and many more.
The goal of SDG Business event is to eradicate poverty and promote good health and sustainable communities.
Stressing on the role of SMEs and entrepreneurship, K S Bhatia said that to empower SMEs we need to educate the people. SMEs are the backbone of global economic activity and play a crucial role in alleviating poverty ensuring inclusive economic growth. Apart from generating employment and wealth, they play a critical role in equitable distribution of growth. Undoubtedly, they face constraints in resolving various financial and taxation issues. They also feel handicapped by skill gaps, poor technology, regulatory complexities and trade barriers. He hope the challenges being faced by the SMEs will be addressed soon to enable them realize their full potential and to play a bigger role in the country’s economic prosperity.
It was also emphasized that in order to promote the SMEs, initiatives should be taken and startup companies should come forward. The main reasons why many startups are failing is that they lack innovation and are deprived of resources required for training and exposure.
Pumpkart's Founder further said that at present India is having near about 15,000  startups, but very soon the country will become a hub of startups, as they are growing up at a fast rate. By 2023, India will be having around 1.5 lakh startups. To encourage the startup culture, we need to formulate and implement proper policies, which already exist in many other countries.

New Compound Shown to Be as Effective as FDA: Dr. Neetu Dayal

By Tricitynews
Chandigarh 19th July:- Former NIPER, Mohali graduate student Dr. Neetu Dayal, is proud to be part of the team who have identified a new compound that in preliminary testing has shown itself to be as effective as antibiotics approved by Food and Drug Administration to treat life-threatening infections while also appearing to be less susceptible to bacterial resistance. The identified compound, called F6, has been potent against antibiotic-resistant pathogens such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), which is often found in hospitals and other healthcare settings, and vancomycin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (VRSA), with vancomycin long considered a drug of last resort. The compound was tested against clinical isolates, and when tried to force bacterial resistance on F6, no bacterial resistance found. Antibiotic resistance is a growing public health crisis. The World Health Organization has deemed antibiotic resistance one of the three greatest threats to human health because bacteria are becoming increasingly resistant and too few treatments are being developed. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that at least 2 million people a year in the United States become infected with bacteria resistant to antibiotics and at least 23,000 people die a year as a result. Studies have estimated that drug-resistant infections could be responsible for 10 million deaths a year worldwide by 2050. As a synthetic chemist in the team, her research work broadly includes to design and synthesize novel molecules as a potential antibacterial and an anticancer drug candidate. Currently focused on pharmacokinetic properties of the molecules to improve the bioavailability and to make derivatives of F6 to see if they might be even more effective. Besides, she is actively engaged in developing novel molecules as kinase inhibitors.
Dr. Neetu Dayal received her Ph.D. from the NIPER Mohali in 2016 after completing her thesis research on palladium-catalyzed convergent synthesis of fused nitrogen heterocycles in Dr. J. K. Laha’s Lab. She is currently working as a post-doctoral research associate in Dr. Sintim Lab at the Purdue Univerisity, West Lafayette, United states.
