PGI HOLD STATE LEVEL INTEGRATED HEALTH PROMOTION PROJECT WORKSHOP

By 1 2 1 News Reporter

Chandigarh 30th July:- School of Public Health (SPH), PGI in partnership with Department of Health and Family Welfare of Punjab and Haryana State, is undertaking a project entitled, "Development of Integration Model for Health Promotion in a District Setting". The project aims to assess the situation of IEC/health education activities at a district level, build the capacity of staff for health promotion at district setting, develop an integrated model of health promotion, and implement it on pilot basis in the districts. If found feasible and successful,it will be replicated at state and national level under National Health Mission (NHM).

The situation analysis of IEC/BCC activities in the selected districts has already been carried out. The findings suggest that at present, the health promotion component is fragmented and not uniform across different health care levels at a district setting. It is yet to be recognized as a critical domain of health service delivery. Mostly the scope of IEC/BCC activities in the district is limited to distribution of IEC materials and conducting group sessions on reproductive health issues per se. The health system lacks integration of IEC/BCC activities within the existing national health programs with very little emphasis on NCD risk factors. There is no annual calendar of activities.

A draft of manual for building the capacity of the staff such as health workers and counselors has been developed. As a part of developing strategy for implementation and finalization of the manual, School of Public Health is organizing a 'State Level Stakeholders' Workshop for Strategic Planning' on 31st July, 2014 at School of Public Health, PGIMER, Chandigarh. This workshop will include 40 stakeholders of Punjab, Haryana & Chandigarh besides officials from Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MOHFW) and ICMR, New Delhi. State Mass Media Officer, Programme Officers of various national health programs, faculty from PGI, GMCH, Fine Arts College and Punjab University will be the participants.

Permanent Lok Adalat Dismisses The Bank Case:Directed The Baank To Recover Rs.5000/-.From Bank Officals

By 1 2 1 News Reporter

Mohali 24th July:-- The Permanent Lok Adalat of Mohali today dismissed an application filed by UCO Bank, Khizrabad against Jagmohan Singh of Khizrabad. The Permanent Lok Adalat directed the bank to pay Rs. 5000/- to Jagmohan Singh towards cost of litigation. The Permanent Lok Adalat (PUS) also directed the UCO Bank to recover the amount of loan, interest and cost from its official who instead of releasing the loan amount to Jagmohan Singh paid it to one Ram Lal. The Permanent Lok Adalat was presided by Jagroop Singh Mahal.

During conciliation proceedings it was found that the bank had delivered the cheque of Rs. 39,000/- to Ram Lal from whom Jagmohan Singh was alleged to have purchased the buffaloes. The bank did not hand over the cheque to Jagmohan Singh to ensure delivery of the buffaloes to him from Ram Lal. The loan amount was not deposited in the bank account of Jagmohan Singh nor the bank ensured that the cheque was given to Ram Lal only after the buffaloes are delivered to Jagmohan Singh. The contention of Jagmohan Singh was that neither he got the loan amount from the bank nor Ram Lal sold to him any buffaloes and it was a transaction between Ram Lal and the bank to defraud him by obtaining his signatures on certain papers. Even the subsidy amount though reported to have been released was never paid or deposited in the account of Jagmohan Singh. Jagmohan Singh had reported the matter to Police upon which a criminal case was registered in which the challan has been submitted in Court and charge has been framed against Ram Lal and Sham Lal. Keeping all these facts in view the Permanent Lok Adalat held that the bank has not proved if any loan was advanced to Jagmohan Singh and therefore dismissed their application with litigation cost of Rs. 5000/-. The bank was held entitled to recover the loan amount with interest and cost from those bank officials who had released the loan to Ram Lal instead of Jagmohan Singh.

Artist Launches ‘Jai Kalakar’ Campaign

By 1 2 1 News Reporter

Chandigarh 23rd July:- To bring the art and artists's pride on the government agenda some of the topmost artists from the field of art, culture and education arena of City Beautiful came together to support the idea of Prof. D S Kapoor, former Principal of Govt College of Art, Chandigarh. Prof Kapoor's initiative 'Jai Kalakar' was launched at Chandigarh Press Club today. Present on the occasion were Gurcharan Singh Channi (Chairman, Sangeet Natak Akademi), renowned Sculpture Artist Shiv Singh, TV and Film personality Ms Savita Bhatti, Educationist Prof Balwinder Singh, Malkit Singh and Jodh Singh, among others.

While interacting with media Prof D S Kapoor said, that Jai Jawan Jai Kisan was a slogan given to India by Shri Lal Bahadur Shastri, who was the Prime Minister of India in 1965. It is a salute to soldiers and the farmers. So popular has been this slogan that many patriotic songs have been written, acted and sung by great Indian Kalkars in the past for feature films on this very slogan. While we hail soldiers who protect our life and the farmers who feed us; shouldn't art also be hailed that washes the dust of daily life off our soul? Therefore, he took the agenda – 'Jai Kalakaar' – Hail the artist!

 He said, that art is the gateway to the soul; it is a medium uniquely well suited to helping us with some of the troubles of inner life. I feel it soothes the inner self and help us overcome our desire for material things, our fear of the unknown, our longing for love, and our need for hope. I request our Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi to accept my slogan and bestow the honour and pride on India's countless artists who have been instrumental in positioning India as the incredible destination all over the world. He himself being a lover of art, would consider our cause and come forward in support."

Prof Kapoor further said, that Kalakar, in my opinion, plays a spiritual role in society. God is a creator, a supreme Kalakar. He made human beings, animals, birds and the natural world; sunset, sunrise, beaches, mountains, waterfalls, green pastures, lakes, forests etc. Look around, India stands as an example of rich art and craft. Be it the Ajanta and Ellora caves, the Mughal Architecture or the Rajasthani handicrafts – Art takes myriad forms in India and the artists emerge as the sentinels of this heritage. Even the performing arts also come in the category.
