MAKE WAY BECAUSE CHRISTMAS IS IN TOWN

MAKE WAY BECAUSE CHRISTMAS IS IN TOWN

Now that the year is nearing its end the whole city is going gaga while thinking of one last festival, and how to celebrate it, before bidding adieu to 2017! Yes it’s CHRISTMAS which takes place on 25th December to commemorate the birth of Jesus Christ. Generally it is on that time the feast takes place to mark the happy occasion. Now when the talk is about food, Kolkata seriously just can’t lag behind this year. Like every other year, the Kolkata cuisine has brought around a host of delicacies to entice our palate.

Meet Anuradha Koirala- A True Wonder Woman

ANURADHA KOIRALA- THE TRUE WONDER WOMAN

November 2010, Demi Moore stands tall as her speech in the CNN Top Heroes Award makes the audience break into a huge applause. But not she but a frail Nepalese woman walking confidentally up the stage makes the audience's eyes moist.
Anuradha Koirala, a visionary, a teacher, a winner of the CNN Top Heroes Award. And a lot more, Anuradha is responsible for freeing no less than 12,000 girls from the clutches of sex trafficking.
Globally, sex trafficking figures show a dismal scenario. Minimum of 20.9 million adults and children are bought and sold worldwide into commercial sexual servitude, forced labor and bonded labor, according to figures stated by equalitynow.org. Among these 98% are recognised to be women and about 6-10% are reported to be trafficked in lieu for sexual exploitation.

CHILDREN’S DAY AT SAROJ GUPTA CANCER CENTRE AND RESEARCH INSTITUTE

CHILDREN’S DAY AT SAROJ GUPTA CANCER CENTRE AND RESEARCH INSTITUTE
Since our childhood, we have been celebrating 14th November in a special manner and receiving special gifts. But there are children who have been caged in the four walls of the hospital and spend their lives with the saline bottles. They hardly enjoy their lives since they suffer from excruciating pain and lead a life full of uncertainties.
This year like every other years, the paediatric department of Saroj Gupta Cancer Centre and Research Institute celebrated the Children's day  in order to bring some Joy and delight in the little lives.
On 14th November, the management of the hospital organized a drawing competition  and other cultural activities where some of the paediatric patients had participated in the events like recitation, song and dance. They entertained the audience  which included other patients and their family members, doctors and nurses with their talents. 
The. Program was inaugurated by eminent pe…

Depression - such an overused term, isn't it? But more than overused it's over felt.
More than half of today's population is victim to this disease. Now you would ask me, why is it even termed as a disease ? But that's where we go wrong. It is as important and serious a disease like any other so called "medical" disease. Maybe it is not always visible to the naked eye like when a person is down with fever you can understand that but depression is not easily understood or detected. It's more like saying the person is suffering from mood swings or has some anger management issue or maybe they just had a bad day at school/work. No. They didn't. And the victims generally hide it well with their ever enthusiastic smile, because they neither seek for attention nor sympathy.
My question is why can't we treat depression just like we would treat a heart patient or a cancer patient? Why would we have to be all "hush-hush" about t…
