IBOS conference held

IBOS (Indian Biologics Orthopaedic Society) second annual conference was held on Mar 29 at Sri Ramachandra Institute of Higher Education, Porur.
Dr. B.Samuel Chittaranjan (HOD, Orthopaedic Surgery, Believers Church Medical College, Tiruvella, Kerala) was inaugurated the conference.
He said biologics, especially cell biology should become part of teaching and training in Orthopaetics in addition to the conventional medicine, surgery and physiotherapy.
Dr.P.V.Vijayaraghavan (Vice chancellor, SRIHER) said biological products not only provide a variety of options but moves towards a more natural healing.
Dr.M.S.Dhillon (President Indian Biologics Orthopaedic Society) in his speech said Biologicals hold great promise in treatment of orthopaedic problems but cost will be the most inhibiting factor for some time to come. But if countries invest in volumes and guarantee bio-product manufacturers a fair return on their investments it can be made available to a large number of patients when the cost will certainly come down.
Organising Chairman of the conference and Director, Centre for Sports Science and HOD Arthroscopic Surgery, SRMC, Dr.S.Arumugam said that recent techniques and concepts using natural biological substances like PRP, BMAC, Stem-cells, Adipocytes, Autologous Conditioned Serum, Gene Therapy have revolutionised the management of various painful orthopaedic conditions.

Heartfulness centre celebrated Women’s Day

Women, normally perceived to be sweet or soft, can express ‘anger’ too. For, a woman to let her guard down will mean true liberation. The days of this gender being considered as eternal givers or embodiment of patience are over.
These observations were made by her as a chief guest at the Heartfulness Centre, Manapakkam, on March 8 to mark the International Women’s Day celebrations. Speaking on the theme of Balance for Better, she sought to highlight that women should be as human as men and be allowed to express themselves freely, in a natural way. Her empowerment should not impact the society and civilization.
She also spoke about child abuse, which is on the rise today due to the gender stereotypical behaviour. Inculcated in the children by parents at a young age, the abuse aggravates due to the societal norms, she pointed out, citing examples of the two Nobel prize winners Nadiya Murad and Denis Mukwege Mukengere (peace prize winners for 2018).
S Prakash (Zone Coordinator, Chennai Metro Zone, Heartfulness Institute) began the proceedings of the event, that saw the rendition of a fusion song ‘acham acham illai,’ by children and a group of women.
The other dignitaries and special invitees were CK Gariyalai (IAS), Sita Sundar Ram (Secretary, Sanskrit College Management Committee), Sabitha Nagraj (GM, Indian Oil), Dr.Vijaya, (Prof, Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Madras Medical College).
Women achievers were recognized and presented with Designing Destiny, a book authored by Kamlesh D Patel, Global Heartfulness Guide, Heartfulness Institute.
