72 physically challenged get artificial limbs
Tribune; Monday, May 30, 2011

Ludhiana. An NGO today organised a mega artificial limbs donation project under which 72 physically challenged people were provided with artificial limbs. Major CD Soi, project coordinator, "We spent Rs 1.5 lakh on these artificial limbs prepared by Bharat Vikas Parishad Charitable Trust -- an NGO. We started distributing artificial limbs about a year ago and by now have already distributed these to about 50 needy people. And today we arranged for 100 persons, out of which only 72 turned up."

This NGO also does other charitable works like sponsoring education of needy kids and distributing medicines to the needy, for which it has opened a 'medicine bank' on every Sunday from 10 am to 12 pm.

"ook forward and stand up on your feet imagining that you are absolutely fine and none can stop you from marching forward," these were the words of Baldev Kumar, a Moga-based physically challenged resident, to Neelam Bhalla, a physically challenged resident of Phagwara, who was trying to settle down in her pair of artificial limbs at Lodge Vishwakarma No 173 -- premises of an NGO.

Most people were reminded of the story of 'Asli Insaan' -- a true story of a Russian pilot whose legs were chopped while fighting in his fighter plane, but he again flew the fighter plane with artificial legs.

Talking to The Tribune, Baldev Kumar, in his mid-fifties, who runs a flour mill at Moga, said: "I lost one of my lower limbs about 30 years ago in an accident. I work on my own with an artificial limb and have changed the artificial limb twice. This is the third time that I am going to change my artificial limb."

While Arjun Singh (75), who came all the way from Mander village, near Kot Isse Khan in Moga district said, "I lost my lower limbs due to diabetes about 17 years ago. I tried to contact many people for getting artificial limbs. A few days ago someone from Moga told me about this camp and hence I came here."

Trying to stand up on his own through artificial lower limbs, this old man was wearing pair of silver-coloured Punjab jutti and said, "I am an agriculturist, but do not work much as my son and grandsons take care of the work. But I visit my fields daily with the help of crutches."

However, 30-year-old Harjeet Singh, who came from Tajpur road in Ludhiana, was very thankful to his friend who guided him for the free artificial limbs. Harjeet suffered some problem in his right lower limb in an accident about four years ago. He said, "Now, I will also start working, however, earlier I had to close down my shop due to my accident."

Play on Vivekanand draws loud applause; Tuesday, May 10, 2011

"All power is within you; you can do anything and everything. Believe in that. Stand up and express the divinity within you," said Swami Vivekananda who was one of the greatest Indians of the 19th century. Vivekananda sparked off the process of cultural rejuvenation and religious reform which shaped the consciousness of a nation waiting to be born. His hearty call to fellow human beings at the Parliament of Religions held at Chicago in 1893 charmed and fascinated the Western world and he gained immense stature as a philosopher and an interpreter of the world.

Vivekanand who was born as Narendranath Dutt continues to be an icon for millions of Indians. A mono act musical play on his life and teachings by Shekhar Sen has already crossed 175 performances. The 176th performance was staged at Kandivali East, Thakur Village Auditorium, on Saturday in aid of the Bharat Vikas Parishad.

The format which Shekhar Sen has adopted is a familiar one with the text and the message neatly woven into songs and lyrics. The actor singer has a string of successful musical plays to his credit. He is now one of the most recognized faces on the Hindi stage.

"Like my earlier play on Kabir and Tulsi, this play too is a vehicle of his message as well as philosophy. Very few people know that Swami Vivekanand was a well-trained musician," says Shekhar Sen. Ramkrishnabuwa Vaze, a great 19th/20th century singer has recorded in his autobiography that he had heard and learned a dhrupad from Swami Vivekanand which was well-versed in forms like the khyal, devotional bhajans as well as tappa too. He also wrote tracts on music which are still relevant to researchers.
