Annual Conference of Indian Association of Sexually transmited disease and AIDS on 31st October

By 121 News Reporter

Chandigarh 30th October:-  The 38th annual conference of Indian Association of Sexually transmited disease and AIDS (ASTICON 2014) will be organized by the department of Medical Microbiology, PGI from 31st October to 2nd November. The department has recently been awarded an advanced centre for research and training in sexually transmitted infections(STIs) by NACO . Dr Sunil Sethi, Professor in the department said that "STI are the neglected diseases in our country   but they can increase the transmission of HIV many times . So for the control of HIV, adequate and proper treatment of STIs is very important as all STIs can lead to increase in the transmission of HIV. Most of the patients are treated inadequately by quacks and they ultimately lead to drug resistance. There is great stigma attached with STI so most of the patients instead of coming to STI clinic prefer to go to quacks where they are inadequately treated  which lead to emergence of superbugs like Multiple drug resistance N. gomorrhoeae which will then become untreatable . So proper diagnosis  and treatment of STIs is very  important to prevent the spread of HIV    Potentially preventable and curable, infections like genital chlamydia, syphilis and gonorrhoea still cause tremendous morbidity in patients. Initial infections are sometimes asymptomatic and hence go unnoticed. However they go on to produce chronic complications like pelvic inflammatory disease and infertility. Early diagnosis and treatment of infected individuals is required to prevent the spread of the disease and severe sequelae." So the theme of conference is Diagnostic and Therapeutic advances in STI,s and HIV. During this conference, leading microbiologists and clinicians specializing in STIs from all around the world will discuss the latest developments in the clinical picture, various diagnostic modalities, prevention, treatment, drug resistance and control measures.

Punjabi film ‘Yoddha – The Warrior’ opens this Friday all over the world:Team visits city for promotion

By 121 News Reporter

Chandigarh 30th October:- Those who oppose or threaten aren't yet aware of the sharpness of a warrior's weapon. This Friday sees the most anticipated Punjabi action film of the year 'Yoddha – The Warrior' which is another gem from the super-successful team of 'Sadda Haq'. Walking on the same lines, this team brings out the social menaces with their own creative perspective and shows how goodness wins over cruelty. Directed by Mandeep Benipal, this hard-hitting sensation of OXL Films and SR Cinebizz  is a fictional tale full-house packed with drama, action and entertainment. With actor-writer-producer Kuljinder Singh Sidhu in the lead role, the film stars Unnati Davara, Rahul Dev, Girja Shankar, Nasir Khan and Hardeep Gill.

Penned by Kuljinder Singh Sidhu and Amardeep Singh Gill, Yoddha is produced by Kuljinder Singh Sidhu, Dinesh Sood, Rajiv Kumar and Sanjeev Joshi. Executive Producer of the film is Nidhi Sidhu. The film is making waves since it is a production of a team which has been praised earlier for their historic effort with 'Sadda Haq'. Kuljinder told that the movie is set against the backdrop of the border area of Punjab where Drug Mafia rules and everyone including some police officers are involved in this racket. In these circumstances the hero Ranjodh Singh, who is an NRI from UK and is visiting India, survives from a big fight and hence is transformed to a new avatar of 'Yoddha - The Warrior'.

Unnati Davara, the leading lady, is a television face and fully excited about her Punjabi film debut. Having worked earlier with national award winners Rituparna Sengupta and Ananya Chatterjee in well-known Bengali film '3 Kanya', Unnati comes from Raipur and has won a number of titles on ramp as a model. She said, that working with this team was a dream comes true as I was always hearing about the immense growth of Punjabi cinema while being there in Mumbai. I am honored to have worked with such creative people and I'm now eyeing on going deeper into Punjabi cinema even being not a Punjabi.

Playing a negative role, Rahul Dev's all praise for the film's team. He said that my director made me realize that I can look even more negative in my role. I love Punjabi cinema as always and really excited about this project. Audience will see a new Rahul in this film. All credits to Kuljinder and Mandeep who were like brothers to work with.

Co-producer Dinesh Sood believes that their production company has started with a journey of a different cinema within the boundaries of Punjabi film industry. He said that we have a different flavor altogether in our productions which no other film offers. With the love and support of audience we hope to carry forward this journey and keep entertaining them all.

Director Mandeep Benipal is the one who directed 'Sadda Haq' and believes that he understands each and every nerve of this team he has worked with. He told that the film is a result of a long research which started immediately after the success of their last venture. Yoddha travels through different faces of emotion and all in all is going to be a complete action-packed thriller which will not stop entertaining the audience for full two and a half hours. The macho action hero Kuljinder, with his sheer characterisation of his role would make the audience see the spirit and soul of a true warrior.

‘Google Girl’ of Hallmark School:Displays her unbelievable skills

By 121 News Reporter

Chandigarh 29th October:-   Most of us are aware of Kautilya Pandit, the 'Wonder boy' a k a 'Google Boy', whose mental feats were emblazoned across India by the National dailies as well as Electronic Media. Now there is our very own girl next door – Nine-Year-Old prodigy Jiya Phutela whose mental prowess matches that of the 'Google Boy'. Jiya is a student of Grade V at Hallmark Public School, Panchkula.  

Mrs. Kavita Wadhwa, Principal, Hallmark School, said that this girl might be little but her brain is a big powerhouse of knowledge, superlative memory & unique skills. With her amazing memory, she can talk about chemical reactions, formulae, periodic table, inventions, general-knowledge & current affairs. She also has complete information about calendars of the last 300 years. She draws exactly whatever she sees, can recite formulae after a couple of readings and is fond of dress designing.

A very interesting session was held at the media meet. Journalists gave dates of their choice to Jiya and she immediately told the correct corresponding day. A periodic table was placed at the venue and she effortlessly gave out the Atomic Number on being told the element and vice versa. The activity which left everyone startled was the one in which she was blindfolded and made the same movements as another person. A table of different numbers was also drawn on a board with a series of rows and columns; she had a glance at the same and was able to correctly tell the numbers as assembled journalists asked her to decipher these.  

According to Jivtesh Garg, Director, Hallmark School, that after her extraordinary mental capabilities were noted her talent was nurtured with the help of Neuro–Linguistic Programming (NLP). NLP is an approach to communicationpersonal development, and psychotherapy . Under NLP there is a connection between the neurological processes ("neuro"), language ("linguistic") and behavioral patterns learned through experience ("programming") and these can be changed to achieve specific goals in life. NLP brings out positive belief in children." Said Jiya, "I am the youngest NLP Practioner of India and want to take this great system to different schools, institutions and even IITs of the country. I believe that NLP can really help bring out the genius in even ordinary students.

PGI doctors develop new techniques for cancer treatment

 

By 121 News Reporter

Chandigarh 27th October:- The incidence of both colorectal and anal cancers is increasing because of various dietary factors and early detection and diagnosis. The risk factors for higher incidence of colorectal cancers includes high fat and low fibre diet, dietary components rich in nitrosmines, obesity, alcohol and tobacco intake and higher consumption of red meat plus certain familial and hereditary diseases.  The higher risk of anal cancers is related to infections such as HIV, HPV, homosexuality and certain warts and condylomata. Various options of treatment used for these two cancers have led to improved survival as well as decreased morbidity. The management of anal cancer has undergone an interesting and tremendous transformation over the last three decades. Definitive chemoradiation is now the standard first-line treatment for anal carcinoma. Prof. Rakesh Kapoor from the Department of Radiotherapy, Regional Cancer Centre  in PGIMER, Chandigarh practiced an improved treatment technique for the sphincter preservation of anal cancers using image based high dose rate interstitial brachytherapy. Prof. Rakesh Kapoor along with his team of Physicists including Dr. O. Arun  Singh also did the actual dosimetry using thermoluminiscent chips in-vivo to actually measure the radiation dose received  in the tumour area thus to have controlled radiation delivery. In their results,which has been published in the American Brachytherapy Society Journal, they have shown a local control rate of almost 90% and a sphincter preservation rate of almost 80%. Even in the management of metastatic advanced patients of colorectal cancer, Prof. Rakesh Kapoor has published a data from their centre showing a median survival of about 18 months and a progression free survival of 28%. Thus concluding that we can consider metastatic colon cancer in the ambit of chronic disease in the present scenario by using various chemotherapeutic agents as well as other interventions done for metastatic disease.
