Vibgyor Learning Centre On Friday 4th September 2015, at 3.30 PM S. Sruuthi’s PSBB School Music Teachers Padmashri & Ammu Madam, had called Father of S. Sruuthi on his cell phone and asked S. Sruuthi to be taken straight to Prasad Studios for Music Maestro Ilayaraja’s song recording by 4 PM. Little did we least imagine that S. Sruuthi would be asked to sing a full length Children’s song that too in an un-known “Kannada Language” although she had sung songs like “Baghiyadha lakshmi bhaarama” in Kannada and several songs of Saint Thyagarajar A n n a m a c h a r y a r ’ s krithis in Telugu, Marati Bajans and in other languages. The Director had explained the meaning of Bhombay mean Toy, Jinkue mean breeze, etc. As the song rehearsals for 2 songs were going on right under the nose of Ilayaraja , the Director of this film titled “RAJU’S MEDAL” asked the S. SHIVPPRASADH and his wife Rama after coming to know that we are S. Sruuthi’s parents as to whether we would permit her to act the main role in that children Film. When asked about the film subject the director Ms. NANDITHA said it was a pure children’s film aimed at “eradicating child marriage”. Striking memories came flashing to me “As based on a detailed interview published in The Hindu by the then Editor-in-Chief of The Hindu Mr. N. Ram with the then Hon’ble president of India Smt. Prathiba Devi Singh Patel” on various social evils ‘Eradication of Child Marriage’ was topping as one among them and the slogan coined and highlighted by The then President was “One Child Marriage has ten Ill effects”. Based on The Hindu’s publication S. Sruuthi started propagating on the Evils of Child MarriagethroughFancy dress that enabled her to have a personal meeting with the Then Hon’ble President on 21.03.2009 at VIP Ceremonial lounge of Madras Old Airport. Director Ms. Nanditha who had done a photo shoot of S. Sruuthi in nativity costume and made her act with Kannada dialogues delivery was fully impressed and approved to cast her in this film as a victim of child marriage but parents yet to decide as her drama date on 01.10.2015 seem to clash with her film shooting dates. However they have promised to adjust the same and if done so she will be fruitfully using her holidays from 19.09.2015 to shoot for the film at Thirthahalli near Shimoga where ‘Malgudi Days’ were shot along with artists like Prakashraj, etc from 24.09.2015 with a gap of 3 days for her drama rehearsals. When Repeated Fortunes Came Knocking At S. Sruuthi’s Door THROUGH PSBB SCHOOL TEACHERS COINCIDING ON THE EVE OF TEACHER’S DAY W hile Blood saves lives, s o m e t i m e s unsafe blood transfusion can lead to serious diseases too! With the increase in TTI’s (Transfusion T r a n s m i t t e d Infections), ensuring safe blood transfusion has become of utmost importance for the medical fraternity. Working towards its commitment of keeping patients safety on priority, SIMS Hospital, Chennai has introduced ID- NAT (Individual Donor Nucleic Acid Test) for screening of blood. The ID-NAT Lab was inaugurated on 9th September by Dr Sridhar, Pro Vice Chancellor of SRM University; which was followed by a Seminar on Transfusion Transmitted Infection. Dr Anand Deshpande from P.D Hinduja Hospital, Mumbai, Dr Nidhi Mehta from KDA Hospital, Mumbai and Dr Ram Prabhakar from SIMS Hospital, Chennai spoke on the importance of Safe blood transfusion as well as role of ID-NAT in reducing TTI instances. ID-NAT is the next generation advancement in blood safety. It detects HIV, HBVandHCVinfections in blood at a very early stage compared to conventional tests like ELISA. While, ELISA will take up to 90 days to detect the viruses, ID-NAT can do so in as low as 2 days. Due to early detection, ID-NAT helps in reducing risk of transfusion through infected blood significantly. Risk of TTI’s increases even more for patients requiring regular blood transfusions: like Thalassemia, Sickle cell anaemia or Cancer patients.One unit of blood can be given to 3 persons in components, and if the blood is contaminated it can risk 3 lives at once. Countries like US, France, Japan, Singapore, Australia have made NAT mandatory for blood screening. With the increasing numbers of TTI’s there is an urgent requirement on making ID-NAT a mandate and hospitals like SIMS Hospital have taken a much required step towards the direction of blood safety. Early Detection of HIV, Hepatitis B and C infections in blood, now @ SIMS Hospital, Chennai The installation of LEO Council, Leadership Training and Workshop of LEO Clubs of District 324 A6 was held on 6th September 2015 at Flat Promoters Association Building, East Tambaram, Chennai.
