*From Vaccine to Vaccination*

 May 28, 2021

The manufacturing, testing, release and distribution of vaccines is a complex and multifactorial process with hundreds of steps, requiring a diverse pool of human resources. For vaccines to result in actual vaccination of people, highly coordinated efforts are required from international supply chain, manufacturers, regulators and State and Central government agencies.

Production scale-up of vaccines is a step-by-step process, involving several regulatory SOPs of GMP (Standard Operating Procedures of Good Manufacturing Practices). There is a four-month lag time for COVAXIN®️ to translate into actual vaccination.

The timeline for manufacturing, testing and release for a batch of COVAXIN®️ is approximately 120 days, depending on the technology framework and regulatory guidelines to be met. Thus, production batches of COVAXIN®️ that were initiated during March this year will be ready for supply only during the month of June.

Based on Central Drugs Standard Control Organisation(CDSCO) guidelines, all vaccines supplied in India are mandated by law to be submitted for testing and release to the Central Drugs Laboratory, Government of India. All batches of vaccines supplied to State and Central Governments are based on the allocation framework received from the Government of India.

The timeline for vaccine supplies to reach the depots of the State and Central Governments from Bharat Biotech’s facilities is around two days. The vaccines received at these depots have to be further distributed by the State Governments to various districts within their respective states. This requires additional number of days. Pandemic vaccines are distributed by respective governments equitably across all sections of the population. Vaccines once available at the vaccination centers are then administered to recipients over a period of time, based on demand.

Ashwath Ram, Managing Director, Cummins India Limited, said: 

Economic activities and business sentiment picked up from Q2 FY’20. This, coupled with pent up demand, saw revenue growth recovering from Q2. Government spending on infrastructure and continued strength in Industrial and Powergen segments helped in sequential recovery up to Q3. The onset of the second wave of COVID-19 in March 2021 has impacted overall economic recovery. With vaccinations likely to pick up in coming weeks, case rates should decline, so we expect the economy to recover from the end of Q2 FY’22 and we expect quarterly improvement. We continue to closely monitor our end markets and are well prepared to scale when the economy picks up.

COVID-19 impacted our export business as well. Demand started to show gradual improvement in Q3 FY’21. As vaccination rates pick up globally, economic activities are restarting, and we believe most of our end markets will fully recover in FY 22.    

During this period, our priority continues to be the safety and wellbeing of our employees, serving our customers, staying on course with our product development initiatives, prudently managing cost, and conserving cash. This is evident in our FY’21 financials. We believe that with improved operating fundamentals, great products, a strong balance sheet and steady cash flow, we are strongly placed to succeed in these dynamic conditions.  

As the economy rebounds, we are well positioned to sustain our technology driven market leadership across all segments of our business. Supply chain disruptions need to be managed effectively, especially those faced by the global market in electronic parts. We continue to work closely with our supply chain partners to secure our supplies to meet the delivery requirements of our customers. We also continue to work closely with other stakeholders to support our communities in this difficult period.   

Future Outlook:

The Company expects a very gradual recovery of demand in upcoming quarters. As market conditions continue to remain uncertain and visibility for end market recovery is still somewhat limited, the Company is not providing a full year revenue guidance for FY 2022.

Be a part of the action-event of the year, with the World Television Premiere of the pan-India blockbuster, Vijay The Master, on 30th May at 8 pm. 

During the lockdown Hindi movie channels witnessed remarkable increase in the viewership. Due to the dearth of new Hindi movies and increasing demand for the fresh content, South dubbed movies are playing a key role in bridging the gap of new content for the TV viewing audiences. Through the stories written to entertain the whole family, south dubbed films appeal to audiences across markets. Audiences, now, are more vocal and expressive about their preference for the south dub films which is evident from the good performance of these movies on TV. Owing to their popularity, South dubbed movies have become an integral part of the line-up of every Hindi movie channel. 

With the change in market dynamics, big budget South movies have become a national phenomenon. Today there is more awareness among the audience and they are excited for the theatrical release and TV premiere of these films. The anticipation and buzz around release announcements of one of the mega movies RRR shows the popularity of the genre among the global audience. Zee Cinema, with its World Television Premiere of Vijay The Master, is catering to the large set of audience who tune into South Hindi dubbed Movies.

Thrilled about the World Television Premiere, Malavika Mohanan said, “This was my first film with Vijay sir and it was really exciting for me to share the screen with him. Working with a sensation and an icon made this experience even more exciting for me. It was great to be a part of the movie where some of the best artists like Thalapathy Vijay, Vijay Sethupathi, Anirudh and Lokesh came together. We all were really close-knit and we spent a lot of time together. It was like working with a dream team. I had a great time working on the film and it’s one of the most fun projects that I have worked on. It’s been a great milestone to have in my career and I am looking forward to working with the same team again, hopefully in the future.”

Talking about the film, Lokesh Kanagaraj said, “While working with Thalapathy Vijay, I realized that he is a director’s actor. I was pleasantly surprised as I was excited to explore my creative liberty. The two big stars Thalapathy Vijay and Vijay Sethupathi coming together added to the scale of the movie. It was a great experience to work with them. I wanted this movie to have a mass appeal. When your work receives so much love and appreciation from the audience you automatically get inspired to make more movies to entertain them.”

Vijay The Master is a story of two powerful people, JD and Bhavani. The plot revolves around Bhavani, whose dark childhood phase in the juvenile detention centre makes him a ruthless gangster. To hide his misdeeds, he starts using the youngsters at the detention centre as scapegoats. On the other hand, JD is a personality development professor who is loved by his students but not so much by the management. Due to certain circumstances, he is forced to leave the college and work as a teacher at a juvenile centre. As days go by, events lead him to uncover a heinous plot set up by Bhavani. What follows is a thrilling battle to protect the juveniles and unmask Bhavani.

*Reusable pads essential to make menstrual hygiene sustainable for all women and girls*

 If every woman and girl of menstruating age in India used disposable pads, 38,500,000,000 used pads would be discarded every month – an environmental disaster since each of these would take 500-800 years to degrade naturally

XXX / May 26, 2021: Considering the immense non-biodegradable waste generated by disposable sanitary pads every month, sustainable menstrual hygiene in India can be achieved only with reusable pads made of organic material, said Anju Bist, Co-Director, Amrita SeRVe (Self Reliant Village) Program of Mata Amritanandamayi Math. Known as the “Pad Woman” of India for her zeal in promoting the use and reuse of sanitary pads made of cloth and banana fibre, she is the co-creator of Saukhyam Reusable Pads which have been awarded as the "Most Innovative Product" by the National Institute of Rural Development, Hyderabad. The pads were also lauded at the UN Climate Change Conference held in Poland in 2018.

Said Anju Bist: “There are 355 million menstruating women and girls in India, as per the National Family Health Survey data. Many from low-income communities still do not have access to hygienic products to manage their menstruation. There are efforts by many organizations to make low-cost disposable pads available to such women. But if every woman and girl of menstruating age in India were to use disposable pads, 38,500,000,000 used pads would be discarded every month. How does one get rid of soiled pads? Burning them releases harmful dioxins and furans. Burying them is no good either because the pads are non-biodegradable. Each pad contains plastic, and would take 500 to 800 years to decompose. None of wants to leave this trash as our legacy.”


Saukhyam Reusable Pads are the first ones in the world to be made from banana fiber, which is a naturally occurring absorbent material. It absorbs six times its weight in fluid! Disposable pads, on the other hand, use cellulose fiber for absorption. Cellulose fiber is derived from cutting down billions of trees every year worldwide, unlike banana fiber which is obtained from agro-waste. All cellulose fiber used in India to make disposable pads is imported. Banana fiber is locally available. Its supply is limitless and cheap as India is the largest producer of bananas in the world. 

Educated and informed young women are switching to reusable products, not only due to environmental concerns but also potential health hazards of using disposable sanitary pads. Dr. Sirisha from the Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences, Kochi, said: “Girls and women experience health-related problems from the chemical additives and toxins in disposable pads. These pads use cellulose fiber as the absorbent material. The bleaching of this fiber to obtain the pure white color leads to the presence of trace amounts of harmful dioxins on the pads. The skin in the vaginal area is highly permeable. Anything that is in constant contact with the skin is likely to end up in the bloodstream too. Dioxins are endocrine disruptors and among the most harmful substances known to mankind.”

Said Anju Bist: “Each Saukhyam Reusable Pad lasts up to 3 years, and a pack of five pads costs only ₹ 330. In contrast, an average woman in India spends ₹ 50-100 every month on buying disposable pads, which adds up to a considerable amount every year, and over the course of the entire menstruating lifetime. Even in rural areas these days, women and girls aspire to have a better product for menstrual hygiene. More than 200,000 women and girls have made the shift both in India and internationally to Saukhyam reusable pads. This is helping prevent the emission of 812 tons of carbon dioxide equivalent annually and has eliminated 17,500 tons of non-biodegradable menstrual waste.”

India now has ISO standards for reusable sanitary pads (IS 17514:20). Big businesses all over the world are beginning to embrace the principles of circular economy in which there is no waste. What is left over after a product’s useful life-cycle is used again as raw material in the next cycle of production. Products meant to be used only once and thrown away are not so popular in this new economy. Added Anju Bist: “Reusable menstrual pads is clearly an idea whose time has come. Not only are such reusable products helping many consumers save money, they are also offering a better choice to scores of women. This is the only sustainable way to make menstrual hygiene accessible and affordable.”

The team from Mata Amritanandamayi Math has recently published a scientific study conducted with both urban and rural users of Saukhyam Reusable Pads. It was published in the international journal BMC Women’s Health (Part of Springer Nature) in March 2021.

The paper titled “A Novel Banana Fiber Pad for Menstrual Hygiene in India: A Feasibility and Acceptability Study” was authored by Dr. Krishnashree Achuthan, Dean, PG Programs, Amrita University, Anju Bist and three other collaborators. The quantitative study was conducted amongst 155 rural and 216 urban participants in India, who had made the switch to reusable pads. Parameters like CO2 footprint analysis, microbial load, pH and ability of the reusable pad to withstand pressure after absorption were also studied. The study is available here: 

Talking about the results of the study, Dr. Krishnashree Achuthan said: “The results of our study indicated high levels of feasibility (rural =82.2%, urban =80.3% and acceptability (rural =80.2%, urban =77.5%) of banana fiber pads across both participant groups. Comparing key characteristics such as leakage and comfort to participants’ prior practices revealed general satisfaction on the performance of the pad, leading users to recommend the pads to others. The reasons for their preference of a banana fiber pad highlighted their concern for environment, health and cost as decisive factors. The microbial load on a 3-year reused pad was found to be similar to an unused one. Regression analysis showed cost as an important indicator for feasibility and acceptability, especially amongst rural users.”

About Saukhyam Reusable Pads

The Saukhyam Pads are an initiative of Amrita SeRVe (Self Reliant Village) project of Mata Amritanandamayi Math, a no-profit institution with consultative status to the UN. The aim is not only to prevent an environmental catastrophe, but also make the pads cheaper and provide employment to rural women. These pads are made of cloth, with a padding of banana fibre to act as absorbent material. They are manufactured by self-help groups of women in villages adopted by the Mata Amritanandamayi Math as part of Amrita SeRVe (Self Reliant Village) project. 

All proceeds from the sale of Saukhyam Pads are used for the development of these villages. India is the largest producer of banana fibre in the world, which is one of the most absorbent substances found in nature. As the core absorbent material in Saukhyam Reusable Pads, banana fibre offers a sustainable solution for women to meet their menstrual hygiene needs. Production centers for Saukhyam Pads have been set up in villages in many states of India, including Jammu, Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Kerala. The Math is training women to make these pads for their own use as well as sell them in neighboring villages and cities. Each production center employs about 50 to 100 women. The model will be scaled to every state in the country. For more information, please visit:

*Glan Martins and the story of two life-changing messages*

 ~ Glan Martins was in the doldrums before a winter move to FC Goa changed it all ~

Goa May, 2021: For Glan Martins, January 31, 2021, was a date he was looking forward to, but not in the way that it eventually turned out to be. ATK Mohun Bagan was up against Kerala Blasters at the Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Fatorda, a ground he could call home in more sense than one. 

He had helped Sporting Clube de Goa and Churchill Brothers to many a memorable victory on that hallowed turf. And yet there he was - struggling for playing time in his own backyard. 

He had been the mainstay in all of the teams he had been playing for in the previous years, but the ISL was a different ball game. He was a central midfielder who many admired but not ‘many’ took a punt on him.

“I am glad that ATK Mohun Bagan gave me the opportunity to compete in the ISL. Without that stint, maybe I am not the player I am today with the determination to show people what I am all about,” said Glan Martins. 

He had been the mainstay in all of the teams he had been playing for in the previous years, yet the early part of the 2020/21 season saw him struggle to even make the matchday squad. Going into the game against Kerala, he had not featured in the previous three (not even in the matchday squad for two of them). 

By the time the Kerala game was done (one which they won), it was again the same harrowing feeling in the guts of another match going by as he watched from the sidelines as an unused substitute. 

“I know I was moving up a notch and the ISL would not be easy, but of course, I was disappointed with the lack of opportunities,” remarked Glan. “I had been waiting to play in the ISL for a long time. It can get a bit frustrating.”

Message 1

At around 10:30 that night, upon arrival at the team hotel, a message changed it all. 

“It was my agent’s name on the screen with a WhatsApp notification,” Glan recollects. 

“He asked me, ‘There is a chance FC Goa will make a move for you. Would you like that?’ I just typed ‘Yes’ and sent it. I was just so excited and nervous at the same time.

“You see, everyone in my family is an FC Goa fan. Even when I got a chance to play in the ISL at the beginning of the season when I told my mother the news, her first question was whether FC Goa had asked for me or not.”

A few minutes later his agent called again.

“He just told me to stay awake,” Glan recollected on a Zoom call - the reality of the modern interactions. “He just said if it was to happen, it has to happen in the next few hours, so I should not fall asleep.”

And he made sure that he did not. In the space of the next few hours, Glan completed all formalities and as India slept, the midfielder woke up to his dream move. 

“I called my mother straight away. I had not played that day and she was thinking I would be sad. She was surprised I was happy and then I broke the news,” Glan says with a beaming smile on his face. “That was a great moment.”

Message 2

“The time to adapt and adjust was very little for me at FC Goa at the beginning. After finishing my period of quarantine, the coach asked me to meet with him,” recalls Glan about his initial days with the team. “We had a session where he explained how he wants his team to play and where he sees me fitting in.

“He told me that he has confidence in my abilities and most importantly, not to be afraid of making mistakes as long as I can learn from them.”

The midfielder made his debut on February 4, coming on as a substitute as injuries forced Juan Ferrando into putting his new signing into the thick of things. 4 days later, he started against Mumbai City FC and the rest, as they say, is history. 

That was the night when many people around the country and world spoke of his name - now combined with exasperated breathe as he produced what would later turn out to be FC Goa’s Fans’ Goal of The Season. 

“When I received the ball I saw space ahead of me. I drove forward a bit before shooting. As a player, you always know when you have hit a ball well. And that was as sweetly I have ever,” said Glan while looking back at his only ISL goal so far. “I didn’t see the ball travel. When I looked up, the ball was past the keeper and thudded into the back of the net.”

The 26-year-old built on his performances throughout the season and by the end of the ISL season, he had become a vital cog in the FC Goa blueprint under Juan Ferrando. 

And then came the AFC Champions League. 

The Gaurs put up a defiant show. It was not only characterised by only grit but also a healthy appetite to play the game in the way FC Goa has been known to play - with poise on the ball. The opening two games saw Juan Ferrando’s men battle two points up against some of the biggest names in Asian football. 

By the end of it all, they had more than just rubbed shoulders with the big boys of the continent, they had given a whole country hope. And in between all this, a message arrived on Glan’s phone again. 

“It was after one of the games. I had just changed and got hold of my phone that I saw a message. It was the manager of the national team asking me for a number of details and documents,” Glan remembers again with a smile on his face.  

“I knew what it meant. I called my mother to tell her the news. I remember sitting on the bus thinking of what had happened in the past four months. It was like a plot for a film. But I am not a hero, I am just Glan Martins.”

About FC Goa

FC Goa is a professional football club based out of Goa that competes in the Indian Super League (ISL) and is the current holder of the Super Cup. Nicknamed the Gaurs, FC Goa has been one of the most consistent teams in the ISL - reaching 4 semi-finals and 2 finals in 7 seasons. The Gaurs are also the ISL side with the most wins and goals to their name.

In April 2021, FC Goa became the first-ever side from India to compete in the AFC Champions League. 

Co-owned by Mr Jaydev Mody, Mr Akshay Tandon and Mr Virat Kohli, FC Goa is one of the few Indian Clubs to have a complete youth development ecosystem. Its U14, U16, U18 and Developmental Teams compete at the highest levels in Goa and nationally. The system has produced recognizable talents like Liston Colaco, Saviour Gama, Princeton Rebello and many more. The Gaurs were the champions of the Goa Professional League in 2018/19.

*Sharing the secrets to wholesome living, on World Meditation Day*

 • Heartfulness guide Mr. Kamlesh Patel (Daaji) and Luke Coutinho, Holistic Lifestyle Coach - Integrative & Lifestyle Medicine share wholesome secrets to deal with mental, emotional challenges that have aggravated in the light of this pandemic.  

• A meditative mind won’t be anxious and stressed out, a relaxed state of mind impacts the hormonal state, further boosting the immune system to combat viruses – Daaji

Hyderabad 21st May 2021: Kamlesh Patel (Daaji), Heartfulness Guide - Heartfulness Institute and Luke Coutinho, Holistic Lifestyle Coach - Integrative & Lifestyle Medicine conversed on the topic of ‘Secrets of Wholesome Living’ today, on the occasion of World Meditation Day. Daaji and Luke shared their insights derived from their experience of working with people from different walks of life. They shared their philosophies, enlivened with many anecdotes from each of their lives. Daaji also spoke about the Heartfulness meditation system and the role it has played in his personal journey. Luke and Daaji answered some of the most pertinent questions that beginners have before they commence meditation. The conversation deepened into ways in which one can enable their mind to meditate, develop interest to meditate every day, achieve clarity of thought and reason, and above all tap into and learn to listen clearly to one’s inner guidance.  

Their intent through the length of the conversation was aimed at guiding the viewers with deep insights and more importantly practical tips and tools on maintaining one’s mental, physical, and emotional well-being. This is especially important now due to the individual challenges posed by COVID-19. Lockdowns and many social restrictions, more keenly faced by India due to extended pandemic restrictions, have created a negative impact on people’s mental and emotional psyches. Through the reasonings of science and philosophy and various personal observations and life examples, Luke and Daaji, deliberated on the practical solutions on bringing hope, confidence and positivity in the current scenario of extreme mental fatigue. 

Luke, Holistic Lifestyle Coach - Integrative & Lifestyle Medicine, set the conversation rolling by explaining his intent and hope that both these experts come together to help and guide people to take care of themselves in simple, powerful and effective ways. His opening remarks were, “The idea behind this initiative was to combine our life experiences and share the secrets we have learnt over the years. Integrating the philosophy of meditation with holistic practices, has helped me and countless people who I have worked with. Daaji’s wisdom has always been enlightening for me and I wanted to share our conversation with the world so that people can benefit from our personal and professional knowledge. We want people to understand and use this knowledge to overcome personal and societal challenges. We hope to reach more people, guide, and motivate them to take care of their mental and emotional wellbeing, counteracting the negative elements prevalent around them.”

While addressing a question on the benefit of meditation, Daaji, Global Guide of Heartfulness, said, "I find that people who meditate have a special aura around them. Only a meditative mind can perceive turbulence and ward it off even before turbulence starts brewing as it is proven to calm the mind and vanquish negative thoughts. Just a 20-minute Heartfulness meditation practice can help people achieve peace. As a result, they are better prepared to navigate stressful circumstances with relative ease. Integrating it into wholesome living practices can benefit the practitioner during these stressful times as they are equipped to handle issues related to pain, rejection, motivation, fear, anxiety, etc. in a much calmer and effective manner.” 

Managing anxiety, stress, and dealing with uncertainty

“Uncertainty is giving rise to emotional and mental distress around us. I see a lot of people trying to deal with the uncertainty of what’s happening around them. Uncertainty gives rise to the fear of unknown. Integrating powerful meditative practices in their routine can help people manage their anxiety. It can also alleviate the negative feelings arising from uncertainty. Gone are the days when you can take one pill or do one workout and expect to be healthy. Today, to be truly healthy, people need wholesome living practices that combine the benefits of meditation, yoga, diet, exercise, and other wellness tools. Wholesome living is a combination of all of this.”, Luke shared during the conversation. 

Adding to that, Daaji said, “Meditation is the core of most of the things. There is something grander behind our brain and mind; a level of consciousness. Consciousness involves thinking, and intelligence. Our decision making is better if it resonates with a better mental system, thinking faculty, intelligence faculty, and ego; which make decisions. When the mind is regulated, it will resonate with the inner self physiologically, and neurologically. When it resonates with a better mental system, it will have its positive impact at a physical level.” He further added, “When you are worried, what happens to your entire system is at a different level, or when you are angry your moods are different, and your body reacts differently. It is how we respond to various emotions, create various ailments in our physical body so we must address this, since, health improves with a simpler mind. These are lifestyle decisions that can help handle emotional or physical problems like Covid. Meditating helps us combat challenges like Covid in a better way, since you are better prepared. Firstly, the meditative mind will not be anxious and stressed. Secondly, as you are not stressed, the relaxed state-of-mind improves the hormonal state thereby boosting the immune system.”

Tips to handle the mental health and emotional issues 

Luke spoke about the challenges which people are facing on mental and emotional fronts. “Transforming your mind to deal with emotional challenges requires a shift in energy. I believe, everyone knows what’s the right thing to do. Everyone knows they should eat well, exercise, meditate etc.; but most people struggle to do it. Eventually we all have to figure out our own ways to do the right things. Personally, analyzing and linking it to reasons for not doing those things worked well for me. It takes some introspection to figure out the reasons that are holding you back. We all need some inspiration and motivation to make those lifestyle changes.”

Daaji shared Luke’s observations, and suggested that heartfully listening or rejuvenating is the key. “Firstly, we should meditate so that the myriad thoughts that clutter our mind, akin to muddy waters, can settle down. When the mud settles at the bottom it allows the water to become clearer; similarly the mind with settled thoughts experiences clarity. Secondly, cleansing our thoughts and impressions can help significantly. We collect a lot of impressions during our day-to-day interactions that affect us, makes us form opinions, and in turn we condition ourselves based on such opinions. It is imperative that we learn to break this conditioning and clean it out of our systems. Such cleaning enables us to free ourselves from false opinions and significantly improves our relationships. Thirdly, we must feel grateful about the things we receive in our everyday life, for example food. Expressions of gratitude bring joy and happiness to our minds. Lastly, sleep is one of the most important elements in managing our mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual selves.”

Sachet & Parampara Tandon speak about their future projects, love in lockdown and more!

 The newly married couple, Sachet and Parampara Tandon had grand plans for their first year of marriage. From traveling the globe, to composing songs with ace film makers and staying in the studio till the wee hours, they had a different picture of life in their minds for 2021. However, as the world and time stood still, what kept the duo going was their back to back work commitments right from the magnum opus Adipurush to Jersey and Hurdang, all of which are in the filming or ready to release process. 

Hurdang starring Sunny Kaushal and Nushrat Bharucha is slated for release soon and Sachet and Parampara have been completing their sessions with the musicians from home, completing the soundtrack of the film which promises to be very different and prepping for the release of the same in the coming month. Speaking on their upcoming songs, Sachet affirms that, "We are focused on making songs which our listeners are enjoying these days. They have really liked our songs Isqadar, Chhor Denge, Mehendi Wale Hath, Tanhaai, Aur Pyaar Karna Hai, and we'll make sure to keep giving our fans more of such songs. There are very unique collaborations with Bollywood actors coming up and we will share the news soon." 

Apart from creating music, they also started making entertaining reels for social media and Instagram, coupled with joint fun videos of their daily banter and little did they know, that their everyday efforts would bring smiles to those even in hospital or recovering from the deadly virus. A gesture that started out just as a home activity, soon became an online sensation with fans across the country asking them for more and more videos. A popular rendition of the eternal Kal Ho Na Ho title track or a nok jhok between husband wife, a glimpse into their lives truly brings positivity to those in need of seeing something other than the dreary statistics that are currently the norm.

Speaking on this, Parampara said that, “Our intention was simple, to stay connected with our audiences and motivate them not to lose hope. We also did not realise that our daily banter would become so popular but any happiness we can get to people in these times, it’s a blessing to be able to do that. I strongly believe that music can heal, music is therapy We feel so good when we connect with our people on social media. They are OUR people. Their Love has made us what we are today. Their support makes our song go big and viral. They shower so much love on our singing videos too. So all in all, they keep us happy and its our responsibility to keep them happy too." 

Way to go Sachet and Parampara!

इंश्योरेंसदेखो ने कोविड-19 वैक्सीनेशन स्लॉट फाइंडर लॉन्च किया

 नई दिल्ली, 12 मई, 2021 : प्रमुख बीमा तकनीक स्टार्टअप कंपनी, इंश्योरेंसदेखो ने आज ‘कोविड-19 वैक्सीनेशन स्लॉट फाइंडर’ नामक एक प्लेटफार्म शुरू किया जो देश भर के नागरिकों को अपने आसपास कोविड-19 टीकाकरण स्लॉट की उपलब्धता की खोज करने में मदद करेगा। यह कदम कोरोनावायरस महामारी से लड़ने के लिए कंपनी की कोशिशों का हिस्सा है।

मौजूदा वैश्विक स्वास्थ्य संकट के बीच कोविड-19 वैक्सीन और इसके उपलब्ध स्लॉट की आपूर्ति और मांग के बीच एक बहुत बड़ा अंतर है। ‘कोविड-19 वैक्सीनेशन स्लॉट फाइंडर’ सुविधा आसपास के टीकाकरण केंद्रों का पता लगाने और को-विन ऐप पर सीधे जाने और उपलब्ध होने पर स्लॉट बुक करने में सभी की मदद करेगा। टीकाकरण स्लॉट की अनुपलब्धता के मामले में यह सुविधा उपयोगकर्ता को स्लॉट उपलब्धता के बारे में शीघ्र जानकारी हासिल करने में सक्षम बनाएगी।

स्लॉट उपलब्धता की जांच करने के लिए, बस पर जाना होगा और पेज के ऊपरी दाएं कोने पर ‘कोविड-19 वैक्सीनेशन स्लॉट फाइंडर’ आप्शन पर क्लिक करना होगा। उपयोगकर्ता को उसके आसपास के टीकाकरण केंद्रों को खोजने के लिए ‘सर्च बाय पिनकोड’ या ‘सर्च बाय डिस्ट्रिक्ट’ ​​विकल्प पर क्लिक करना होगा। आयु समूह का चयन करें और 'फाइंड वैक्सीन सेंटर' पर क्लिक करें। पास के केंद्रों पर उपलब्ध टीकाकरण स्लॉट आवश्यक जानकारी के साथ उपयोगकर्ता को प्रदर्शित किए जाएंगे। स्लॉट उपलब्ध नहीं होने की स्थिति में उपयोगकर्ता जब भी स्लॉट उपलब्ध हो, अधिसूचना के लिए अनुरोध कर सकता है। इंश्योरेंसदेखो केंद्र सरकार के स्वास्थ्य मंत्रालय द्वारा प्रबंधित और संचालित को-विन एप से डेटा प्राप्त करता है।

कोविड-19 टीकाकरण स्लॉट खोजक अब कंपनी की आधिकारिक वेबसाइट पर उपलब्ध है। यह आपके पहले टीके की खुराक के लिए टीकाकरण स्लॉट विवरण प्राप्त करने में मदद करने के लिए आसान चरणों के साथ उपलब्ध है।

कोवी-मेड के डॉक्टर्स की टीम दो ऑपरेटिंग व्हाट्सएप नंबर्स के माध्यम से परामर्श करेगी। मरीज के मैसेज करने के बाद वे उसकी डिटेल्स और मेडिकल हिस्ट्री की मांग करेंगे और एक रजिस्टर्ड प्रैक्टिशनर उन्हें जल्द से जल्द कॉल करेगा। वे हल्के से मध्यम लक्षणों वाले कोविड मरीजों को होम आइसोलेशन की सलाह देंगे और उनका इलाज करेंगे। अस्पताल में भर्ती होने की आवश्यकता होने पर चिकित्सकीय राय प्रदान करेंगे, सभी मानसिक स्वास्थ्य संबंधी प्रश्नों से निपटेंगे, कोविड के बाद की देखभाल करेंगे और उनका हाल-चाल लेंगे, इसके अलावा मनोचिकित्सक द्वारा भी हर हफ्ते परामर्श दिया जाएगा। कोवी-मेड के पास वर्तमान में उनकी टीम में लगभग 19 डॉक्टर्स हैं और कई स्वेच्छा से काम कर रहे हैं, कुछ नर्सिंग अधिकारी भी हाल-चाल लेने में सहायता करने के लिए स्वेच्छा से आगे आए हैं।

गुरमीत चौधरी के साथ इस पहल के पीछे डॉक्टर्स की टीम में डॉ. रूपराज अभिषेक, डॉ. एस.एच. वारसी, सुचित्रा वर्मा और डॉ. राजश्री शामिल हैं।

'kabhidushman-kabhisaheli' bond on-screen, off-screen these two female leads share a beautiful rapport. Set against the backdrop of Lucknow, the show presents a situational comedy ensuing two culturally opposite families forced to share a roof, manoeuvring day-to-day concerns of small-town-living and highly competitive wives. It captures the long-standing Ganga-Jamuni Tehzeeb of Lucknow through the two families – the Mishras and the Mirzas. The actors share a common make-up room, and with time, this place has become a hangout spot for them during shoot. Playing culturally opposite roles, Akansha who plays the role of Sakina Mishra helps Farhana who plays Shanti Mishra with the correct pronunciation of words while Farhana proactively helps Akansha with the Urdu dialect and accent. The leading ladies also understand the concept of space where before starting their day, both listen to their respective religious prayers and participate them as well.

While Akansha observes Farhana when she does her Namaz and listens to Azan with her, Farhana also listens to Hanuman Chalisa with Akansha. Both give immense respect to each other's religions. Akansha Sharma aka Sakina says, "Over time, Farhana has become a dear friend to me. Hum sathmein make-up karwatehain, khanakhatehain, gaanesunntehain, aurkabhikabhithodi bahut gossip bhikarletehain. There have been times when I mispronounce a few Urdu words, Farhana helps with it. She makes sure that she takes out time and refines my Urdu diction. She also sits with me and listen to Hanuman Chalisa and participates in learning the verses too. I am looking forward to this amazing bond to reach new heights both on-screen and off-screen."

Others keep guessing kiesakya ho rahahaiandarki bas hassnekiawaz aa rahihai? Akansha is a wonderful co-actor and now one of my closest friends. Whenever I sit to do my Namaz, she gives me space and while shooting helps with getting the scenes right. Out of curiosity, we ask questions about each other's religion to give justice to our characters and there is immense respect for each other's religion. I think this is what makes our bond beautiful and I hope viewers see the same through our characters."

मध्यप्रदेश मई :-खेती-किसानी के कई उदाहरण आपने देखे होंगे, लेकिन ग्रामोफोन के उपयोग से मिर्ची की खेती करने के दौरान इस किसान के अनुभव सुनकर आप निश्चित ही आश्चर्य में पड़ जाएंगे।

 खरगोन जिला स्थित घुघरिया खेड़ी के कमल यादव मिर्ची काउत्पादन करते हैं।कमल ने इस वर्ष 7 एकड़की जमीन पर मिर्ची का उत्पादन किया, जिसमें से 1 एकड़ की जमीन पर ग्रामोफोन के बीज तथा तकनीकी सलाह का उपयोगकिया।

इसके बारे में वे कहते हैं, "ग्रामोफोन की तकनीकी सलाह को लेकर मेरा अनुभव बेहद खास रहा है। इसके माध्यम से मेरी 1 एकड़ की जमीन में लगाई गई मिर्ची में किसी प्रकार की सड़न नहीं हुई। इस 1 एकड़ में दवाई का खर्चा भी काफी कम आया, यानि दवाई के 10 पंप लगने के बजाए 8 पंप ही लगे और वायर सके अटैक से भी मिर्ची बचीर ही।साथ ही, दूसरे भाग में लगाएग एकई मिर्ची के पौधे सूखगए, लेकिन इस 1 एकड़ में एक भी पौधा नहीं सूखा।इस प्रकार, 6 एकड़ में लगाई गई मिर्ची की तुलना में इसकी पैदावार काफी अच्छी हुई।"

दर असल कमल ने अपनी 1 एकड़ की जमीन में ग्रामोफोन की मिर्च समृद्धि किट का उपयोग किया था। इसके लिए वे कहते हैं, "मिर्च समृद्धि किट ने मिर्च की पैदावार में बेहद विशेष योग दान दिया है। मैंने जितनी जगह पर इस किट का उपयोग किया, उतनी जगह पर पौधों का आकार अन्य पौधों की तुलना में काफी बड़ा रहा। साथ ही साथ, पौधों और मिर्ची का रंग भी काफी अच्छा रहा और मिर्ची का आकार भी अन्य हिस्से की तुलना में काफी बड़ा रहा। मैं यही कहना चाहता हूँ कि हर एक किसान को ग्रामोफोन से जुड़ना चाहिए। मेरे लिए ग्रामोफोन एकडॉक्टर के बराबर है, खेती से जुड़ा हर एक समाधान ग्रामोफोन के पास है।"

शेमारू टीवी पर आस्था और विश्वास जगाने आ रहे हैं 'सिया के राम'

 मनोरंजन जगत में चमचमाते सितारे की तरह उभरने वाले शेमारू टीवी ने हाल ही में सफलतापूर्वक एक साल पूरा किया है। इस एक साल में करोड़ों दर्शकों के चेहरों पर मुस्कान बनकर शेमारू टीवी ने शोज और उपहारों के जरिए कइयों के सपनों को पंख दिए हैं, तो बहुतों की मनचाही मुराद पूरी की है। ऐसे में एक बार फिर अपने प्रियदर्शकों के लिए शेमारू टीवी लेकर आ रहे हैं भक्ति रस से भरपूर और बेहद अनूठा शो 'सिया के राम'। इस शो में आप देखेंगे कि कैसे रामायण को सीता जी के नजरिए से दिखाया गया है। देश का बच्चा-बच्चा रामायण की जिस कहानी से रूबरू है, उसी रामायण को बिल्कुल नजरिए से देखना और कुछ नए तथ्यों का उजागर हो ना यकीनन दर्शकों के लिए बेहद रोमांचक और अनूठा होगा। कोरोना की दूसरी लहर और लॉकडाउन से देश में हर तरफ डर, संशय और निराशा का अंधकार पसरा है, ऐसे में शेमारू टीवी का शो 'सिया के राम' लोगों के मन में आस्था और विश्वास की लौ जगाने में यकीनन कामयाब होगा।    

'बदलते आज के लिए' सिद्धांत पर चलते हुए शेमारू टीवी ने पिछले एक साल में अपने दर्शकों को ऐसे शोज दिखाए हैं, जो बदलते भारत की तस्वीर पेश करते हैं। 'सिया के राम' एक ऐसा ही अनोखा शो है, जिसमें पुरुष प्रधान समाज में पहली बार रामायण की संपूर्ण गाथा को माता सीता के दृष्टिकोण से दिखाया गया है। शो के सभी दृश्यों को बेहद आकर्षक ढंग से दर्शाया गया है, जिन्हें देखकर दर्शक मंत्रमुग्ध हो जाते हैं। शो में सिया और राम के किरदार मदिराक्षी मुंडले और आशीष शर्मा निभा रहे हैं। देवी सीता के सशक्त किरदार को मदिराक्षी ने अपने बेहतरीन अभिनय से एक नई ऊंचाई पर पहुंचा दिया है। रामायण के दूसरों शोज में सीता को ज्यादातर शांत दिखाया गया है, जबकि 'सिया के राम' की सीता कर्तव्यपालन के साथ-साथ विचारों की स्वतंत्रता को भी प्राथमिकता देती हैं और समय-समय पर अपने पिता और पति के समक्ष अपने विचार खुलकर रखती हैं। आपको बता दें कि जहाँ प्रभु श्रीराम को 'मर्यादा पुरुषोत्तम' कहा जाता है, वहीं माता सीता को सर्वोत्तम आदर्श माना गया है। एक आदर्श पुत्री, आदर्श पत्नी, आदर्श माँ के साथ ही वे एक आदर्श स्त्री हैं, जो आज की आधुनिक नारी के लिए प्रेरणा स्त्रोत हैं। 

रामायण की महत्वपूर्ण पात्र होने के बावजूद रामायण के अन्य शोज में माता सीता के किरदार, उनके चरित्र और बलिदान को उतनी प्रधानता नहीं दी गई है, जिसकी वे हकदार हैं, जबकि 'सिया के राम' में त्याग की मूर्ति देवी सीता के चरित्र और बलिदान को बेहद खुबसूरत ढंग से दर्शाया गया है। लक्ष्मण की भूमिका निभाने वाले करण सूचक ने अपनी खुशी बयां करते हुए कहा, "मैं बेहद खुश हूँ कि मेरे दर्शक मुझे एक बार फिर से लक्ष्मण के रूप में देख पाएंगे।"

सिया के राम मेरे दिल के बहुत करीब रहा है और में शेमारू टीवी का तहे दिल से शुक्रिया अदा करना चाहता हूँ कि उन्होंने ना सिर्फ मेरे दर्शकों को, लेकिन मुझे भी सिया के राम देखने का दोबारा मौका दिया और उन लम्हों को फिर से जीने का अवसर दिया। मेरा विश्वास है कि कोविड के दौरान हमारा यह शो सब के मन में आस्था की एक किरण जरूर जगाएगा और हम जल्द ही पुराने दिनों के तरह जिंदगी जी पाएंगे।

'सिया के राम' शो में मदिराक्षी मुंडले और आशीष शर्मा के अलावा लक्ष्मण और उर्मिला का किरदार निभाने वाले करण सूचक और युक्ति कपूर मुख्य भूमिका में हैं। यह शो शेमारू टीवी पर 14 मई से हर रात 7:30 बजे प्रसारित होगा।

Blue Dart forms Blue Dart Med-Express Consortium to operate experimental Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) for delivery of vaccines and emergency medical supplies

 An intelligent smart drone delivery solution to tackle challenges in last-mile vaccine delivery 

National, 13th May 2021: Blue Dart, India’s leading express logistics service provider and part of the Deutsche Post DHL Group (DPDHL) formed Blue Dart Med-Express Consortium with the mission of revolutionizing the delivery of vaccines and emergency medical supplies to the remotest parts of India with Drones. Blue Dart Med-Express Consortium is part of the ‘Medicine from the Sky’ project in collaboration with the Government of Telangana, World Economic Forum, NitiAayog and Healthnet Global.

The Ministry of Civil Aviation (MoCA) has granted the project with necessary exemptions and rights to fly drone flights on an experimental basis in Telangana. The aim is to assess an alternate logistics route in providing safe, accurate and reliable pickup and delivery of health care items (medicines, covid-19 vaccines, units of blood, diagnostic specimens and other lifesaving equipment) from distribution centre to specific location and back.

Blue Dart is committed to improving the supply chain infrastructure and is fighting hard to combat the pandemic. Blue Dart Med-Express Drone flights will deploy an immersive delivery model to optimize the current healthcare logistics within Telangana. The model will enable deliveries from district medical stores and blood banks to Primary Health Centers (PHCs), Community Health Centres (CHCs), Blood Storage Units & further from PHCs/CHCs to Central Diagnostic laboratories.

Proud to be able to help the country in its fight against the pandemic Balfour Manuel, Managing Director, Blue Dartsays, “It’s been over a year and our battle against COVID-19 continues to unfold new challenges that need solutions in real-time. The pandemic has taught each one of us the importance of logistics and the need for a tech-led supply chain infrastructure. As an organization Blue Dart has always been surrounded with the technology of the future. It is this ability that has helped us to not only withstand the pandemic but thrive with growth. While we reach out to over 35,000 locations across the country, the current situation calls for a much deeper penetration of vaccines.”

Commenting on Blue Dart’s experiment with Drone flights for Beyond Visual Line of Sight delivery of vaccines Ketan Kulkarni, CMO & Head – Business Development, Blue Dart says, “The consortium aims at enabling safer, efficient and cost-effective Drone delivery flights. With efficient systems in place, it can help reduce the current logistics cost, making the healthcare logistics faster and efficient. We are delighted to be granted the rights to commence operations and this is definitely the need of the hour. Mankind is witnessing the worst time and Blue Dart is committed to giving back to the society in which it operates and will always be ready to take one step forward.”

Smt. Rama Devi Lanka, Director of Emerging Technologies and Officer on Special Duty (OSD), ITE&C Department, Government of Telangana, says, “The project would generate real and actionable insights to drive future adoption policies and integration with the existing healthcare supply chain. With covid-19 pandemic wrecking existing supply chains, adopting such disruptive technologies is the need of the hour.”

Sri Jayesh Ranjan, IAS, Principal Secretary, ITE&C Department, Government of Telangana, says, “Telangana is one of the most proactive states looking to adopt emerging technologies, and the ‘Medicine from the Sky’ project using drones is in line with the same principles. This project is one of the first such programs in the country where multiple drones would fly BVLOS to establish their value proposition for the healthcare supply chain. The vision is to ensure healthcare equity for rural areas.”

Blue Dart has been consistent in its support to the nation in the fight against the pandemic. As the Trade Facilitator of the Nation, Blue Dart ensured that life doesn’t come to a standstill by safeguarding and ensuring the delivery of critical shipments across the country. In keeping with its commitment to its philosophy, Blue Darters have been working tirelessly to guarantee the continuity of the mission-critical supply chain since the time the country has been gripped by the pandemic. Blue Dart has continuously worked with the medical equipment and pharmaceuticals sector to maintain the supply chain and deliver critical shipment and essential supplies including Covid vaccine samples, temperature-controlled movement of COVID-19 testing kits, ventilators, PPE, testing kits, reagents, enzymes, respirators, surgical masks, goggles and gloves amongst other critical material. The company’s six Boeing 757 freighters ensure the ease in ramping up operations swiftly to handle large scale shipments.
