Solar Impulse Foundation supports clean and profitable developments

“Covestro technologies are Efficient Solutions”
Solar greenhouse dryers for food preservation

Bangalore, 22nd January 2020: Covestro (India), a leading producer of advanced and high-performance polymers in India and around the globe is making the world a brighter place by developing sustainable and innovative solutions made of efficient and versatile materials. Being recognised for 1000 sustainability solution labelling, Covestro has recently been granted the Solar Impulse Efficient Solutions Label for two projects, which have been proven as economically profitable as well as environmentally protective solutions: solar-powered greenhouses for drying food to preserve it, and a waterborne technology called INSQIN® for sustainable textile coating. This Label from the Solar Impulse Foundation serves as a new and credible symbol and as a guarantee of quality to those looking to implement clean solutions.

“With our Solar Impulse Efficient Solution label we want to acknowledge and publicise developments like these Covestro technologies – developments, which can boost economic growth while preserving the environment,” explains Bertrand Piccard, Swiss pioneer and founder of the Solar Impulse Foundation. “By selecting a thousand Efficient Solutions, we want to support and speed up the implementation of clean and profitable solutions in the industry.”
“Inclusive Business of Covestro tries to bring about sustainable social transformation through innovative projects/solutions to overcome challenges the world is facing currently and the Indian subcontinent in particular. Through the installation of solar dyers, we want to boost the local economic development and also to support social progress by integrating low-income communities in the value chain. Solar Impulse Efficient Solutions Label is an encouraging recognition of the technology which we have been able to effectively demonstrate for the benefit of the farmers,” said Mr. B Veeralakshmanan, Head of Inclusive Business at Covestro (India) Private Limited
The solar greenhouse dryer is an efficient, decentralized, cost-effective and sustainable solution for reduction of post-harvest losses in agricultural products. The high efficiency of the dryer is achieved through the use of polycarbonate for construction of a parabolically shaped greenhouse. The material is transparent to visible and in particular infrared light and shows good thermal insulating properties, allowing the dryer to heat up quickly. The installation of solar dryers for food preservation is part of Covestro´s “inclusive business” approach, with which the company wants to strengthen local economic development, alleviate poverty and support social progress by integrating low-income communities in the value chain. So far Covestro has provided the materials for the installation of more than 1,500 solar dryers in different sizes in India and different ASEAN countries, by that significantly increasing the income of regional farmers.

Announcing Sports SEZs and special tax concessions to sports-tech companies in Union Budget will give impetus to sports entrepreneurship in Indias new sunrise industry


K. Yeraga Selvan Co-Founder & CEO, Run Adam (an omni-channel sports-aggregation platform)

The Sport industry has been growing faster than any of the BRIC nation GDPs and in India it is growing at nearly 15% per-annum, with potential to become one of the biggest growth areas for India in this decade. Khelo India is a very good initiative started by this government and we look forward to more such growth drivers to the industry. Despite that, Indias last years budget for sports was only Rs. 2216.92 crores, and by comparison Chinas sports budget is nearly 200 times this amount with nearly a similar population base.
India has created global properties like IPL which is valued at nearly US$ 6.7 bn. The completely indigenous league of Pro-Kabaddi boasted of a combined viewership of nearly 300 million fans. There are 13 other sports leagues which are also growing very fast. Sports holds potential for many such properties attracting the Indian and global fan base which will push growth in sports tourism also. The direct and indirect employment potential of this burgeoning sector will be in manufacture, retail, sports medicine, training, among other complementary areas.
We urge the Finance Minister to look at budgetary allocations in three crucial areas in the upcoming Union Budget 2020.
(i) Sanctioning 4 Sports Special Economic Zones (SEZ) one each in the four zones of India with a special empowered committee to oversee the SEZs implementation within the financial year,
(ii) Special tax concession for all companies engaged in sports, sports technology, sports medicine and allied areas,
(iii) Three year tax holiday for sports technology companies which help in enabling access of facilities, sponsorships, equipment, for sportspersons from rural and semi-urban areas of India.

NARAYANA HEALTH CITY PERFORMS KARNATAKA’S YOUNGEST HEART TRANSPLANT

Bengaluru, 21″ January, 2020: End stage heart failure is one of the conditions mired with high mortality. Around 1/4th of the children who suffer from end stage heart failure die within 6 months and a majority of them do not survive beyond two years of age. The pediatric cardiology department of Narayana Health City has brought a ray of hope to children suffering from end stage heart failure by successfully performing a heart transplant surgery on a child as young as 4 years of age. The transplant surgery has the unique distinction of being Karnataka’s youngest heart transplant. Dr. BR Ravikanthe Gowda, Additional Commissioner (Traffic), Bengaluru City Traffic Police and Dr Kishore Phadke, Convenor, Jeevasarthakathe were present at the event wherein the case study was elaborated.

Hailing from Kolkata in West Bengal, Master Chahal Patwari, the 4 year old heart transplant recipient was suffering from Dilated Cardiomyopathy since the time he was 2 years of age. Though he was under treatment his condition did not improve, rather it started deteriorating. In fact, the disease had weakened his heart’s ability to pump and he was not in a condition to even eat or play. The family’s search for a quality pediatric cardiac care brought them to Narayana Health City, Bangalore. On admission the child’s condition was very critical. The pediatric team under the aegis of Dr. Shashiraj Subramanya, Consultant Pediatric Cardiologist & Heart Transplant Physician, Narayana Health City, did a thorough evaluation of the child. As the only treatment for end stage heart failure is heart transplant, the medical team advised the family to register with Jeevasarthakathe. The family registered with Jeevasarthakathe in February 2019. In India, owing to the lack of awareness and participation in organ donation, especially heart donation, heart donation is still at its nascent stage. Although no official statistics is available, hundreds of end stage heart failure patients die every year waiting for a suitable heart. After a long wait of around 11 months, the child received a suitable heart on December 21″ 2019 and the doctors successfully performed the surgery. He was discharged from the hospital within 15 days after surgery and now leading a near normal life. In fact, the doctors say, heart transplant can be successfully done in selected cases with excellent outcome in children as young as less than 1 year age.

Elaborating about the case, Dr. Shashiraj Subramanya, Consultant Pediatric Cardiologist & Heart Transplant Physician, Narayana Health City, said, “The health of the recipient is very crucial to ensure the success of a heart transplant. In the case of Master Chahal Patwari, he was not only at the fourth stage of heart failure but also, he was very weak. The biggest challenge in this case was to keep him stable and alive till we found a matching donor. In fact, his condition was so critical that he had to be in the hospital for 11 months on life saving medicines. With the help of our comprehensive medical team we provided him not only the adequate treatment but also worked rigorously to find the best matching donor. More importantly, despite the prolonged hospital stay he did not get a single episode of infection and attained very good nutritional status that helped him sail through the surgery smoothly.”

Discussing about the transplant, Dr. Julius Punnen, Heart & Lung Transplant Surgeon, Narayana Health City, said, “Apart from blood match the crucial aspect is the weight match. A patient can receive heart from someone who is about two and half times heavier than himself or herself. In this case as the team had ensured the child was healthy as well as had an optimal weight we could find a matching donor and save his life by performing the heart transplant.”

The transplant surgery lasted for around 4 hours. After the surgery the child was discharged within 15 days bringing an end to his 11 month long hospital stay.

His saviour is a 45 year old man who had a suffered from brain haemorrhage and was admitted at Aster CMI Hospital, Hebbal, Bangalore. He was declared brain dead on December 21 and his family consented for organ donation. His heart saved the life of Ma2ster Chahal Patwari. The heart was transported from Aster CMI Hebbal to Narayana Health City through a green corridor facilitated ay the traffic police. The distance of 35 kms was covered in a span of 29 minutes.

Expressing his joy, Mr. Kamal Patwari, patient’s father, said, “In the time of darkness, Narayana Heaith City came as a ray of hope in our lives. Master Chahal Patwari is ur only child and we had last itope til we came to Narayana Health City. We are not only thankful to the entire team of Narayana Heaith City but also deeply indebted to the donor’s family for saving our child.”

The event also witnessed Dr.BR Ravikanthe Gowda, Additional Commissioner (Traffic), Bangalare City Traffic Police being felicitated for his constant support and ensuring timely transportation of organs.

Sharing his contentment of being a part of a lifesaving procedure, Dr. BR Ravikanthe Gowda, Additional Commissioner (Traffic), Bangalore City Traffic Police, said, “It gives me immense pieasure to be a part of such a lifesaving mission. We are glad that we have been instrumental in saving the life of this young boy.”

Addressing the gathering at the event, Dr. Kishore Phadke, Convenor, Jeevasarthakathe- apex body of Govt of Karnataka for Decease Donor Organ Transplants, said “While there is an increase in the number of people coming forward to donate organs, it is still far from desirable. Over the last few years the heart transplant has grown 2 times. Last year we were able to provide support to 30+ heart transpiants in the city. There is a growing need for creating awareness and dispelling the myths around argan donation.”

The case study not only stands as an example of clinical excellence of Narayana Health City, it aiso provides a ray of hope to those suffering from cardiac ailments. With this transplant Narayana Heaith becomes one of the leading hospital chains in the city who have been successfully performing heart transplants. The group has performed 76 heart transplants across its hospitals in the city. Out of the 76, 10 are pediatric heart transplants.

LEBANON IS GONE & LOST (I’M GENUINELY SORRY FOR IT) “Why CAA and NRC are the last chance for India’s existence ~

By Seshan Iyer

.
Why CAA and NRC are the last chance for India’s existence ~ please read carefully

Lebanon – a glaring example of what can go wrong

In the 1970’s, Lebanon was called ‘Paradise’ and its capital Beirut was the ‘Paris of the East’.

The Lebanese Christians are some of the oldest Christians in the world, preceded only by the oriental Orthodox of Armenia and Copts of Egypt.

Lebanon was a progressive, tolerant and multi-cultural society, just like India is today.

Lebanon had some of the best Universities in Middle East, where children from all over Arabia used to come to study. And then they used to stay there & work.

Lebanese banking was one of the best banking systems in the world.

Despite not having oil, Lebanon had a great economy.

The Lebanese society’s progressiveness can be gauged from the 60s Hindi film “An Evening in Paris”, which was also shot in Lebanon!

Now the sad bit..

The Islamic population of Lebanon was growing steadily and the Muslims were producing many more kids than the Christians and the kids were slowly being radicalised due to their lack of education!!

In the 1970’s there was unrest in Jordan and liberal Lebanon was made to open its doors to “Palestinian refugees” by their Muslim leaders to show “True compassion”!!.

However, by 1980, Lebanon was in exactly the same condition as Syria is in today!!

Jihadists, who entered as “refugees”, started ethnic cleansing of the native Christians resulting in untold number of deaths!

No one came to save and people who couldn’t adjust to this violence, left Lebanon in waves and waves of emigration*.

As a result of the deaths and emigrations, the Lebanese Christian population, which was 60% in 1970, whittled down to a mere 37% in 30 years!

Today, there are more Lebanese people living outside of Lebanon than within and their right to return has been blocked by the Muslim majority through laws.

The doors are now sealed shut!

This sad story of Lebanon is only 30 years old!

India needs to learn from Lebanese history. There is a need to be vigilant against the Crusaders like Rohingyas, Bangladesh intruders and also the Enemies within!!

Unite against such forces and boycott the parties, institutions, people, actors, presstitutes and media associated with Crusaders against CAA AND NRC

Wake up India 🙏

CABI outlines vision to promote cricket for the visually challenged in India

” 25-acre cricketing infrastructure to be set up on the outskirts of Bengaluru ”

The Cricket Association for the Blind in India (CABI), which is striving to develop cricket as a professional sport for the visually challenged, today announced its vision to promote the sport in a big way in the next 10 years. CABI plans to organise a routine cricket league, identify and encourage school students and motivate greater number of women, all visually impaired, to take up the sport. Primary among CABI’s various initiatives is to have its own space on a 25-acre plot near Bengaluru. CABI has approached the Government for land and the response has been positive. Initiatives relating to empowering players in securing employment during their cricketing career so that security is ensured for the rest of their life are also on CABI’s agenda. “Cricket for the visually impaired is gaining popularity, and we need support and cooperation from all stakeholders to strengthen the ecosystem. Our primary concern is our own infrastructure to promote this sport. We are hopeful that the various state governments will look into our requests,” Mr. Mahantesh GK, President, CABI and Head of Samarthanam Trust for the Disabled, the NGO behind cricket for the visually challenged in India, said. In addition, Mr. Mahantesh informed that a good beginning has been made with the Government coming out with a policy announcing cash prize for each player in the World Cup winning team. “Regular financial support and recognition will help the team a lot. We want to extend similar facilities to visually challenged cricket world like mainstream players receive.” Highlighting the ambitious plans put together by CABI, Mr. Mahantesh said, “In order to make this sport for the visually challenged more popular, we are planning a routine cricket league and want to bring more women on to the field. We find them equally enthusiastic and energetic in women’s cricket. We want to support them as well.” CABI recently announced the women’s cricket team comprising visually challenged players. A tournament conducted for them received tremendous response. Further, CABI is concentrating on developing cricket at the school level to nurture visually challenged cricketers at an early stage. “We want to train students from their young age itself so that they can unleash their potentiality, become positive, confident, competitive and grow up to be good players. This decade will be crucial for us to implement our ambitious plans,” Mr. Mahantesh added. Talking about the relationship between CABI & Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), Mr. Mahantesh informed that in 2017, BCCI helped CABI get good grounds and players’ endorsements for the World Cup. “After the new Committee has been constituted under the leadership of Saurav Ganguly, they are very keen to constitute a Disability Committee to monitor cricket for the differently abled,” Mr. Mahantesh informed. “Though CABI will continue to remain an independent organisation retaining its identity and entity, it will, however, be affiliated to BCCI and follow some of their guidelines. We will work closely with the BCCI, learn from them and take all the good practices such as their structure and governance, seek timely guidance and enjoy whatever financial, infrastructure support they would like to extend to us,” Mr. Mahantesh said.

CABI is working on creating various programmes to reach out to more people and create an awareness on this sport for visually challenged as much as possible. “Whenever we organise tournaments, we reach out to schools and colleges, both for the visually challenged as well as mainstream institutions, invite them to come to motivate and cheer our players, and also motivate other visually challenged youth to aspire to play the game,” Mr. Mahantesh informed. The date of the finals of the 2nd Nagesh Memorial T20 Cricket tournament for the visually impaired was announced on the occasion. The matches were played in 15 cities with 24 teams participating in it. A total of 59 matches have been played between 24 states in 15 different cities across the country. The tournament started in the North-Eastern city of Agartala. Matches were played in Lucknow, Pune, Bhopal, Kochi, Mysuru, Ludhiana, Ajmer, Faridabad, Chennai, Ahmedabad, and Pondicherry. The 24 teams were divided into two divisions (Elite and Plate) of four groups each. Each group consisted of six teams. The tournament has seen a total of 480 players from 24 states. The finals of the 2nd Indusind Nagesh Trophy National T20 cricket tournament for the blind will be held tomorrow, Tuesday (January 21) at 10.00 am at M Chinnaswamy Stadium. The honourable guests who will grace the occasion of the final match are Shri Gautham Kumar, Worshipful Mayor, BBMP, Shri P C Mohan, Hon’ble Member of Parliament, Bangalore Central, Shri Rajeev Gowda, Hon’ble Rajyasabha Member, Government of India, Mrs. Malini Krishnamurthy, IPS, Additional Director General of Police G & HR, Shri K V Kupparaju, Managing Director Chancery Group of Hotels.

Karnataka and Maharashtra will play against each other in the first semi-final on the morning of January 20, while Haryana will play against Andhra Pradesh in the afternoon in the second semi-final. The semi-final matches will be played at SSE Ground (Samprasiddhi Sports Estadio) Thanisandra near Haj Bhavan.
