❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ World Heart Day -September 29

World Heart Day is observed and ycelebrated annually on September 29, with the aim of increasing awareness of cardiovascular diseases and how to control them to negate their global impact. The international holiday was established by the World Heart Federation in collaboration with the World Health Organization. The president of the World Heart Federation from 1997 to 1999, Antoni Bayés de Luna, had conceived this idea. The first celebration of the annual event took place on September 24, 2000, and, until 2011, World Heart Day was observed on the last Sunday in September.

Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are the most common cause of death globally. An estimated 17 million people die from CVD every year. Coronary heart disease or strokes were the major causes of these deaths. A common misconception about CVD is that it impacts more people in developed countries who are more reliant on technology and lead sedentary lifestyles. But more than 80% of the deaths occur in middle-income and low-income countries. Fortunately, the main causes of cardiovascular disease are modifiable factors, which include lack of exercise, smoking, and a poor diet. Economic systems of countries are also majorly impacted by cardiovascular diseases — the cost of treatment is high and failure to treat the diseases timeously results in loss of productivity and long absences from work.

More than 90 countries take part in this international observance every year. As a result, World Heart Day has proven to be an effective means for disseminating information about CVD. The high level of involvement from governments and organizations is most important for developing countries, which are heavily affected by these diseases.

Martyrdom Day of Shaheed Udham Singh - July 31

We are observing the Martyrdom Day of Shaheed Udham Singh on July 31. It is a day to remember the history of the Jallianwala Bagh massacre and how the event changed the life of Shaheed Udham Singh. He is a historical figure from the pages of the Indian freedom struggle against colonial British rule. General Dyer was given the order to open fire on the crowd that had peacefully gathered to protest the arrest of pro-Indian independence leaders. Shaheed Udham Singh assassinated O’Dwyer, and he was hanged for murder in 1940. The day is observed every year to pay homage to the brave freedom fighters.

India under the rule of the British was not the economic powerhouse it used to be a few decades ago. Indians were not happy with this prospect, and the demand for freedom and self-governance became strong. When the demand for freedom is in the air, the efforts to suppress this demand will also increase. Jallianwala Bagh was a result of such an effort by the British. Reginald Dyer ordered soldiers to shoot at the peaceful crowd gathered around the Jallianwala Bagh to attend a religious festival and to protest the arrest of Dr. Saifuddin Kitchlew and Dr. Satya Pal. Soldiers obeyed the order and a massacre followed. Hundreds of helpless civilians died, and the brutality of the event caused ripples throughout the entire nation and even in Britain. The event became a cornerstone event for the freedom struggles of the nation against an Empire where it was said the sun never sets.

Shaheed Udham was a part of the crowd, and he escaped death narrowly. The sight of his countrymen dying around him helplessly tormented him for the rest of his life. He made it his mission to kill those who were responsible for the entire event, and he succeeded in 1940 when he assassinated Michael O’Dwyer. The life of Udham Singh ended in the same year when he was hanged for the assassination. But his life is immortalized in the minds of Indians who looked for retribution for the Amritsar event. He died with pride and fearlessness, and today we are celebrating his life and remembering the events that led him to his path.

Sri Guru Har Krishan Sahib Ji (Gurmukhi: ਗੁਰੂ ਹਰਿ ਕ੍ਰਿਸ਼ਨ) (Wednesday, 23 July 1656 - Saturday, 16 April 1664) was the eighth of the Ten human form Gurus (divine messengers) of Sikhism. He was the second son of the seventh Guru, Sri Guru Har Rai Sahib Ji and Mata Krishan Kaur Ji (Sulakhni Ji). Before passing away in 1661, Guru Har Rai Sahib Ji had declared that their younger son Har Krishan, would be the next Sikh Guru.

Despite his young age, Guru Sahib used to delight the hearts of his disciples by his commentaries on the passages from the holy scripture, the Guru Granth Sahib. He reminded people to cherish the One God alone, asking them to discard passions and learn the virtues of patience, charity and love...

NATIONAL MANGO DAY- July 22

NATIONAL MANGO DAY 2022: Mango is one of the most-relished fruit, as well as, an integral part of Indian history. It is consumed worldwide. It can be relished in various ways, for example in ice creams, mousse, smoothies, and much more. To honour this exquisite fruit, National Mango Day is annually observed on July 22. On the special occasion of National Mango Day this year, let us take a look at the history and significance of the day.

The history of mangos goes back a long time. First cultivated around 5,000 years ago, this fruit is associated with Indian folklore. It has been said that a mango orchard was given to Lord Buddha so that he could rest under the shady tree. The fruit is called “mango" in English and Spanish-speaking nations and the name was derived from the Malayan word “manna," which the Portuguese changed to “manga" when they arrived in Kerala in 1490s for the spice trade.

Mango is also called the King of Fruit in India. People wait impatiently to enjoy this luscious and delicious fruit all year long. The respective fruit represents abundance and joy, due to which it is also used in a few religious festivities.

International Chess Day- July 20

We celebrate International Chess Day on July 20, a day that was born from an idea the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) had. Chess lovers around the world celebrate their favorite game on this day each year, in a tradition spanning more than 50 years.

A popular theory credits the Indian war game — ‘chaturanga’ — as the inspiration for chess. People regard this as the precursor of chess as it had two key features found in later chess variants — different pieces had different functions and the victory was based on one piece (the king, in modern chess). Versions of this game reached the east, north, and west, taking on very different characteristics each time. A version of chaturanga or a later variant called ‘shatranj’ made its way into Europe through Persia, the Byzantine Empire, and the Arabian Empire.

It is believed that the reason chess pieces do not have distinctively human/animal features is because of the Islamic influence. Islam religion forbids making statues of people or animals, so this is probably why chess pieces are so vague looking.

The expanding Arabian empire took chess to North Africa, Sicily, and Spain by the 10th century. At the same time, chess was being spread around the globe, Eastern Slavs took it to Kievan Rus’ and the Vikings brought the game to Iceland and England.

Chess’s popularity can be attributed to the fact that it was associated with wealth, knowledge, and power. It evolved to resemble the current version of chess in England by the 15th century.

The game as we know it was soon established by an Englishman, adopting the black and white squares we know so well. Modern history shows many events and competitions in relation to chess and exciting new variations of the game, which added to chess’s popularity. Further advancements soon made this game what it is today — reliable timing mechanisms came around, rules of play were put into effect, and charismatic world players burst onto the scene.

The General Assembly proclaimed July 20 as International Chess Day to mark the date of establishment of the International Chess Federation (FIDE). Millions of chess players around the world celebrate this day and this game.

Nelson Mandela International Day-18 July

In 2009, when the United Nations General Assembly declared Nelson Mandela’s 18 July birthday Nelson Mandela International Day, Madiba called on the people of the world to honour him by helping their communities.

In 2022 we will be highlighting the plight of food security and climate change with the tagline, “Do what you can, with what you have,

where you are.”

World Youth Skills Day-July 15

In 2014, the United Nations General Assembly declared July 15 as a World Youth Skills Day (WYSD) to celebrate the strategic importance of equipping young people with skills for employment, decent work, and entrepreneurship. The day provides a unique opportunity for dialogue between young people, technical and vocational education and training (TVET) institutions, firms, employers, policymakers, etc. The Skill India Mission was also launched on this day, that is on July 15.

13 July: National French Fry Day

It is observed on 13 July to recognise a staple food in menus across the country. The day is generated to celebrate the amazing food dish. Frech fries come in various cuts and styles.

Of course, National French Fry Day was created in order to celebrate this amazing food dish! Whether you have French fries when you get McDonalds or you often cook your own fries at home, there is no denying that the addition of this potato dish can take any sort of meal to the next level. Therefore, it is only right that we have a National French Fry Day, so that we can indulge in as many French fries as we want and not feel guilty about it.

In 2009, Malala started a blog and wrote about life under Taliban rule. She also wrote about her desire to go to school. For three years, she and her father advocated for the right for girls to attend school.

On the morning of October 9th, 2012, gunmen from the Taliban shot Malala Yousafzai in the head. She was just 15 years old at the time. After four days in a military hospital, doctors transferred her to an ICU in Birmingham, England. Multiple surgeries and weeks of rehabilitative therapy later, Malala began attending school in Birmingham.

On her 16th birthday, the young lady traveled to New York and spoke at the United Nations. In 2013, TIME Magazine declared Malala one of the world’s most influential people. A year later, Malala was named a Nobel Peace Prize winner. Along with this prestigious honor, Malala has received the United Nations Human Rights Prize and The Liberty Medal. In 2017, Malala began her studies at Oxford. She currently resides in Birmingham and continues to fight for women’s empowerment and education.

World Zoonoses Day -6th July

World Zoonoses Day, which is celebrated annually on July 6 to honour the first immunisation against a zoonotic illness like Avian Influenza, West Nile Virus, or Ebola, is observed. On July 6, 1885, French biologist Louis Pasteur gave the first dose of the first vaccination against the zoonotic disease rabies. World Zoonoses Day holds significance in educating and raising awareness about zoonotic diseases that can be transmitted from animals to humans.

Zoonotic diseases, commonly referred to as Zoonoses, are contagious illnesses brought on by pathogens that can spread from animals to people. These zoonotic germs can transmit through direct or indirect contact between animals and people and can be bacterial, parasitic, viral, or even unusual agents. Zoonoses make up a sizable portion of known infectious diseases including HIV, Ebola, rabies, etc.

Since French biologist Louis Pasteur gave the first dose of the first vaccine against rabies, a zoonotic illness, on July 6, 1885, Zoonoses Day has been observed all over the world. Since then, Zoonoses Day has been observed annually to honour his contributions and spread awareness of zoonotic illnesses.

ਅੱਜ ਵਿਸ਼ਵ ਖੂਨਦਾਨ ਦਿਵਸ ਹੈ 🩸♥️- 14th June 2022

Today's World Blood🩸 Donor Day 2022 : Donating blood is an act of solidarity. Join the effort and save lives.

On World Blood Donor Day 2022 WHO is calling on people all around the globe to give blood in a gesture of solidarity.

Safe blood and blood products and their transfusion are a critical aspect of care and public health. They are key in treating people suffering from a range of diseases and as a result of accidents, natural disasters and armed conflict. The need for blood is universal, but access to it is limited – especially in low- and middle-income countries, where shortages particularly impact women and children as these tend to be the people who need blood most.

Becoming a regular voluntary blood donor is a simple but selfless step that everyone can take to strengthen their communities, support local health systems and save lives.🩸♥️

World Environment🌏 Day- 5 June, 2022🌳

Theme 2022 : Only one Earth

*In the universe are billions of galaxies,

In our galaxy are billions of planets,

But there is #OnlyOneEarth.

Let’s take care of it*

Where did #OnlyOneEarth come from?

“Only One Earth” was the slogan for the first United Nations Conference on the Human Environment, held in Stockholm in 1972. This put sustainable development on the global agenda and led to the establishment of World Environment Day. Fifty years later, Sweden is hosting Stockholm+50 from 2 to 3 June, and World Environment Day on 5 June.

Why take part?

Time is running out, and nature is in emergency mode. To keep global warming below 1.5°C this century, we must halve annual greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. Without action, exposure to air pollution beyond safe guidelines will increase by 50 per cent within the decade and plastic waste flowing into aquatic ecosystems will nearly triple by 2040.

We need urgent action to address these pressing issues, making “Only One Earth” and its focus on living sustainably in harmony with nature, as pertinent as ever.

Earth faces a triple planetary emergency:

the climate is heating up too quickly for people and nature to adapt;

habitat loss and other pressures mean an estimated 1 million species are threatened with extinction;

pollution continues to poison our air, land and water.

The way out of this dilemma is to transform our economies and societies to make them inclusive, fair and more connected with nature. We must shift from harming the planet to healing it.

The good news is the solutions and the technology exist and are increasingly affordable.

#OnlyOneEarth is the campaign for World Environment Day 2022. It calls for collective, transformative action on a global scale to celebrate, protect and restore our planet.

Did you know?

We are using the equivalent of 1.6 Earths to maintain our current way of life, and ecosystems cannot keep up with our demands.

Our lifestyles are associated with two thirds of all greenhouse gas emissions - studies show that sustainable lifestyles and behaviours could reduce our emissions by 40 to 70% by 2050.

Sustainable consumption and production can drive economic development, mitigate climate change, positively impact health and pollution, and help alleviate poverty – potentially increasing incomes by an average of 11% in low- and medium-income countries by 2060, and 4% in high-income countries.

Stockholm+50, looking for a cure to our planet

Stockholm+50, held on 2 and 3 Jun, brings leaders and representatives from governments, businesses, international organizations, civil society and youth together in the Swedish capital. The meeting aims to drive action toward a healthy planet for the prosperity of all and will commemorate the 50th anniversary of the United Nations Conference on the Human Environment.

118th Birthday of revered Bhagat Puran Singh- 4th June

🙏🏼Today's 118th Birthday of revered Bhagat Puran Singh : Person of the century!

Bhagat Puran Singh (June 4, 1904 – August 5, 1992) was born in Rajewal (Rahon) Ludhiana district, Punjab. Born into a Hindu family, he was given the name Ramjidas as a child. Later, while still a child, he chose to become a Sikh. Though he never finished his basic schooling, he became a writer, a (self) publisher, an environmentalist, and a philanthropist. He is perhaps best remembered for the home he founded in Amritsar, India, named Pingalwara, a home which long after his death, is still tending to the castaways of society: the sick, disabled and abandoned forlorn people.

As a young man he decided to dedicate his life to the 'selfless service of humanity'. He founded Pingalwara in 1947 with only a few patients, the neglected and rejected on the streets of Amritsar. An early advocate of what we today refer to as the 'Green Revolution', Bhagat Puran Singh was spreading awareness about environmental pollution, and increasing soil erosion long before such ideas became popular. Pamphlets with his writings on various subjects, such as environmental awareness, were printed on re-used paper and freely distributed.

He was honoured in 1979 by the Government of India with the Padma Shri award, given for exceptional and distinguished service in any field.He was among the citizens of India who returned their awards and medals after the Indian army's attack on the Golden Temple in 1984.

Bhagat Puran Singh chair

Bhagat Puran Singh Chair for Studies in Selfless Service to Humanity was established at Guru Nanak Dev University, Amritsar in year 2005. Objective of this chair was to highlight the contribution of Bhagat Puran Singh Ji in the betterment of our society and how his philosophy can be used for a healthy and prosperous future.

Stamp on Bhagat Puran Singh

Commemorative postage stamps on Bhagat Puran Singh, as a mark of paying tribute to a great self-regulated person was released by Ministry of Communications & Information Technology in year 2004.The stamp is in the denomination of Rs five.

Film and Literature

Bhagat Puran Singh was portrayed in a movie named Eh Janam Tumhare Lekhe with Pavan Malhotra in leading role.The Movie was released on 30 January 2015.🌏💙🌏🌹🌈🙏🏼🌺🙏🏼

🙏🏼🌹Today's 624th Janam Diwas Bhagat Kabir Ji...🌹🙏🏼

“From the One Light, the entire universe welled up. So who is good, and who is bad?”

Bhagat Kabir Ji was a revolutionary saint-poet of the Bhakti Movement. He emphasized the equality and fraternity of all mankind.🌹🌺🌼🌸🌹🙏🏼

Guru Arjan Dev Ji Martyrdom Day-3rd June

🙏🏻Every year in June month, Sikh Community observe Guru Arjan Dev Ji Martyrdom Day.This day is observed to salute the contribution, sacrifice, courage and determination of the fifth Sikh Guru. This year, Sikhs across the globe will be observing 416th Martyrdom Day, by installing Chabeel and serving rose milk and sweets to hawkers and passerby even in the scorching heat. As the day is here, let us tell you about the heroic story of Guru Arjan Dev Ji.

🙏🏻Guru Arjan Dev was born in Goindval Sahib, district Tarn Taaran, India April 15, 1563. His mother was Mata Bhani and his spouse was Mata Ganga. He succeeded his father Guru Ram Das in 1581, who was the fourth Sikh Guru. His maternal grandfather Guru Amar Das was the third Sikh Guru. After the death of Guru Arjan Dev, his son Hargobind Singh became the sixth Sikh Guru.

🙏🏻Guru Arjan Dev used to preach the message of God which was initiated by Guru Nanak Dev Ji. Guru Arjan Dev ji compiled the Adi Granth. This is the religious scripture of Sikhs. It consists of musical ragas and spiritual poetry. Adi Granth constitutes half of his teachings. It was installed at Harmandir Sahab. Later it was expanded and came to be known as Guru Granth Sahab. He contributed more than 2000 hymns, which is the largest collection in the Guru Granth Sahab.

🙏🏻Guru Arjan Dev laid the foundation stone of Harmandir Sahab in 1588. It is now famous as Golden Temple. He prepared the map also. There are doors on all the sides of the temple to signify the acceptance of all castes and religions. Guru Arjan Dev also reorganized Masand system, asking Sikhs for charity by donating one-tenth of their income (dasvand).

🙏🏻Guru Arjan Dev is also the author of the well-known and popular religious Sikh script Sukhmani Sahib Bani.

🙏🏻Jahangir the Mughal emperor of that time was afraid of the popularity and influence of Arjan Dev among people and also of the spread of Sikhism. In 1606 Arjan Dev was captured and imprisoned in Lahore Fort by Jahangir. He was forced many times but refused to convert to Islam. Arjan Dev blessed the emperor's rebellious son Khusrau. Arjan Dev was tortured for five days by making him sit on a hot sheet and hot sand was poured on him. After that, he was taken to the Ravi river, where after taking a dip in the river he was never seen again.

World No Tobacco Day- 31st May

World No Tobacco Day is observed on May 31 every year to create awareness about the harmful effects that tobacco causes as millions of people die due to its consumption every day.

The awareness campaign about the harmful effects of tobacco was started by the World Health Organisation (WHO) in 1988 under the resolution WHA42.19 that was passed by the World Health Assembly. And now, the day is celebrated across the world as ‘No Tobacco Day’ to create awareness and inspire youths to quit tobacco consumption.

The harmful impact of the tobacco industry on the environment is vast and growing adding unnecessary pressure to our planet’s already scarce resources and fragile ecosystems.

Tobacco kills over 8 million people every year and destroys our environment, further harming human health, through the cultivation, production, distribution, consumption, and post-consumer waste.

International Day for Biological Diversity -22 May 2022

Theme 2022 ; Building a shared future for all life

As the global community is called to re-examine our relationship to the natural world, one thing is certain: despite all our technological advances we are completely dependent on healthy and vibrant ecosystems for our water, food, medicines, clothes, fuel, shelter and energy, just to name a few.

The theme in 2022 is “Building a shared future for all life”. Fitting within the context of the ongoing United Nations Decade on Restoration.

When biodiversity has a problem, humanity has a problem

Biological diversity is often understood in terms of the wide variety of plants, animals and microorganisms, but it also includes genetic differences within each species — for example, between varieties of crops and breeds of livestock — and the variety of ecosystems (lakes, forest, deserts, agricultural landscapes) that host multiple kind of interactions among their members (humans, plants, animals).

Biological diversity resources are the pillars upon which we build civilizations. Fish provide 20 per cent of animal protein to about 3 billion people. Over 80 per cent of the human diet is provided by plants. As many as 80 per cent of people living in rural areas in developing countries rely on traditional plant‐based medicines for basic healthcare.

But loss of biodiversity threatens all, including our health.

Did you know?

Current negative trends in biodiversity and ecosystems will undermine progress towards 80% of the assessed targets of 8 Sustainable Development Goals.

Three-quarters of the land-based environment and about 66% of the marine environment have been significantly altered by human actions.

1 million animal and plant species are now threatened with extinction.

🙏🏼🌺🌼Remembring and paying rich tributes to Ghadar Party's Youth leader #KartarSinghSarabha on 126th Birthday. We remain in debt to his Indomitable courageous sacrifice.

Sharing a glimpse of Shaheed Kartar Singh Sarabha's belongings at his house..🙏🏼

#KartarSinghSarabha, one of the most active member of the #GhadarParty, role model of #BhagatSingh. Went to #USA in 1912 to study Chemistry at the #CaliforniaUniversity of Barkeley.

Born in a sikh family and son of Sardar Mangal Singh of Sarabha Village in District Ludhiana of Punjab, S. Kartar Singh Sarabha was a great Indian revolutionary who is amongst the most famous and reputed martyrs of Punjab. He was an inspiration to several revolutionary and other freedom fighters, including Bhagat Singh, who referred to him as his "Guru". When the Ghadar party was founded in mid-1913 he became a key member and undertook the responsibility for the Punjabi language edition of the party’s mouthpiece. He also went out among the Sikh farmers and arranged meetings at which he and other Ghadar leaders made speeches urging them to take united action against British. He became one of the most active members in India’s Independence movement and was punished for his role in Lahore Conspiracy along with several others. He was 19-years-old and refused any counsel for himself during the trial of the case. The judge pronounced him "the most dangerous of all rebels" and observed that since he is very proud of the crimes committed by him, he does not deserve any mercy and should be sentenced to death. On 16 November 1915, Kartar Singh Sarabha walked to the gallows with a smile on his lips and twinkle in the eyes and singing patriotic songs he had composed. He soon became the symbol of martyrdom and many were influenced from his bravery and sacrifice.🌼🌺🌼🌺🌹🙏

This day celebrates our mother's unconditional love and each sacrifice they make for their children. People honour their mothers, mother-like figures in their life, and even grandmothers on this day. A mother is present in every step of our life, from feeding us our first meal to hearing our first words to handling our tantrums and providing us with a shoulder to cry on as we grow older. Though one day is insufficient to express gratitude for every delicious meal she prepares and for all the times they've pushed us to be a better person, the day honours her in the most wonderful way.

💕🤱🏻Mother's Day History

Mother's Day is believed to have originated in America in 1907 when Anna Jarvis hosted a worship service in honour of mothers at Andrews Methodist Episcopal Church in Grafton, West Virginia. When her mother Ann Reeves Jarvis died in 1905, she voiced her desire for Mother's Day to be recognised as a national holiday. The inaugural Mother's Day was celebrated two years later. It was made a national holiday by US President Woodrow Wilson in 1914. While Mother's Day is observed on the second Sunday in May in India, it is celebrated on different days in different countries.

Happy Mother's Day 💕💕

Maybe you bought a new product that broke within months of buying it. Or, maybe you hired someone to do a service but they failed to meet your needs.

Most companies try to avoid negative consumer experiences, as it reflects poorly on their business. They know they will also lose customers as a result. In most countries, there are laws that help to protect the rights of consumers. These companies must abide by these laws.

Many countries have variations of these rights. But most every developed country agrees that all consumers have a right to safety, information, choice, and the right to be heard.

Pi Day is on March 14, and any day that combines fun, education, and pie is a day worth celebrating! Pi, also known by the Greek letter “π,” is a constant value used in math that represents the ratio of a circumference of a circle to its diameter, which is just about 3.14….15…9265359… (and so on). Not only that, but the fourteenth of March is also Albert Einstein’s birthday, so all together it’s nothing short of a mathematician’s delight.

To learn about pi, we need to go back a few thousand years and learn about this elusive number. The value of pi was first calculated by Archimedes of Syracuse (287–212 BC), one of the greatest mathematicians of the ancient world.

Pi Day became an annual Exploratorium tradition that still goes on today, and it didn’t take long for the idea to grow exponentially, hitting a peak on March 12, 2009, when the U.S Congress declared it a national holiday.

Now, celebrated by math geeks all around the circumference of the world, Pi Day became a pop culture phenomenon, with several places partaking in the activities, antics, observations and all the pie eating they can.

NATIONAL DEWORMING DAY

(10/02/2022)

National Deworming Day 2022: Parasitic worms or helminths, present in the soil, enter people and animals through the soles of their feet. These organisms can also infiltrate our bodies through worm-infested food or by touching infected faecal matter. The worms attach to the intestines and cause weakness, anaemia, indigestion, weight loss, abdominal pain, diarrhoea and vomiting. The worms may even enter the brain. Dewormers paralyse or kill adult worms. National Deworming Day is observed on February 10, to make people aware of the importance of deworming, particularly for children from 1 to 19 years of age, who are the most vulnerable.

About 241 million children in India between 1 and 14 years of age are at risk of infections from Soil-Transmitted Helminths (STH) and resulting anaemia and other health issues. As per the National Health Portal (NHP) website, about 7 in 10 children between 6 to 59 months of age have anaemia, especially in rural areas. To remedy this situation, the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare launched the National Deworming Day initiative, in the year 2015. The first programme was conducted in February that year and has continued annually since.

Parasitic worms are a menace to society, both for people and animals. It is impossible to prevent worm infestation since children come in contact with soil while playing outside. Worm infestations can reduce the quality of life in children, stunt their physical growth and mental development. This may lead to poor productivity in schools, affect their attendance and hamper their education and future. Hence, timely and proper deworming of children is a necessity.

February is also the last stretch of winter, which is when bird’s food reserves run low, and finding more becomes incredibly difficult. This is a dangerous time for birds because they need the extra calories that they get from food to keep themselves warm but don’t have the energy to go out looking for it.

In North India, and predominantly Punjab, this harvesting festival begins the year’s festivities with a tribute to the farmers for their hard toil and labor that enables us to live prosperous lives.

This is the harvest season for Punjabi farmers when they begin to reap the bounty of their harvest of the Rabi crops – mainly wheat. This period marks the end of the winter solstice, after which we can expect warmer and longer days.

Lohri falls on January 13 every year, according to the Gregorian calendar. According to the regional calendar, Lohri falls on the last day of the month of Paush, the coldest month of the year. In ancient times, Lohri was observed before the winter solstice, the longest night of the year. Today, it is celebrated at the beginning of Uttarayana – the time when the sun moves from the South to the North.

The day after the Lohri festival marks the beginning of the Magh month and this day is called Maghi in Punjab, when Pongal is celebrated in Tamil Nadu and Makar Sankranti in most other parts of the country such as Karnataka, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Maharashtra, Bihar, and Jharkhand.

To increase public awareness of cardiovascular diseases, their prevention and their global impact, World Heart Day is observed and celebrated annually on September 29.

World Health Day was first founded in 1999 with the World Heart Federation (WHF) collaborating with the World Health Organisation (WHO). The idea of an annual event was conceived by Antoni Bayés de Luna, the president of WHF from 1997-2011. Originally, World Heart Day was observed on the last Sunday of September, with the first celebration taking place on September 24, 2000.

According to the World Heart Federation, “World Heart Day informs people around the globe that CVD, including heart disease and stroke, is the world's leading cause of death claiming 18.6 million lives each year, and highlights the actions that individuals can take to prevent and control CVD. It aims to drive action to educate people that by controlling risk factors such as tobacco use, unhealthy diet and physical inactivity, at least 80% of premature deaths from heart disease and stroke could be avoided.”

This year, the theme of World Heart Day is “Use Heart to Connect”. The idea is to find different and innovative ways to connect people to heart health, especially in lower resource areas and communities by “using your knowledge, compassion and influence to make sure you, your loved ones and the communities you’re part of have the best chance to live heart-healthy lives. It’s about connecting with our own hearts, making sure we’re fuelling and nurturing them as best we can, and using the power of digital to connect every heart, everywhere.”

Shaheed Bhagat Singh 114th birth Anniversary

Indian freedom fighter and revolutionary leader Bhagat Singh’s birth anniversary is observed and celebrated on 27 September. His name is synonymous with the revolutionary movement that highly contributed to India’s freedom.

Born in 1907, Singh will always be remembered for his gusto and courage to stand up against British rule. He also gave a new direction to the Indian freedom struggle through his ideas and supreme sacrifice.

When Bhagat Singh was in jail, he had fasted for 116 days. Despite being on fast, he used to complete his daily tasks like reading, writing books, visiting court every day, and even singing.

The popular patriotic slogan ‘Inquilab Zindabad’ was coined by Singh, which later became the freedom movement’s calling.

When Bhagat Singh’s mother went to visit him in jail, he was believed to be laughing loudly. Everyone around him was shocked. Most of them considered that he was close to death.

On the day of his execution, which is 23 March, 1931, Bhagat Singh was hanged an hour ahead of the official time. Reports suggest that the revolutionary leader was smiling at the time of hanging.

September 28th 2021 is the 15th World Rabies Day.

This year’s World Rabies Day theme is: “Rabies: Facts, not Fear”.

The global COVID-19 pandemic has raised many doubts and misconceptions about diseases, their spread and about vaccination in general. Because of this, there has been some hesitancy about the roll-out of the COVID-19 vaccines in many countries and many people are afraid to get vaccinated. For rabies, this is nothing new, as fears, misconceptions and misinformation about the disease and its prevention dates back hundreds of years. For that reason, this year’s theme is focused on sharing facts about rabies, and not spreading fear about the disease by relying on misinformation and myths.

Facts: Facts are essential for raising disease awareness, preventing rabies cases, having the animal population vaccinated, and educating people about the dangers of rabies and how to prevent it. Without facts we would not have data for decision-makers to inform them of the serious nature of the disease. We would not be able to advocate for its elimination and the burden of the disease would remain unknown, resulting in tens of thousands of people and animals continuing to die from rabies each year. Let us use facts to raise awareness and educate others about rabies – a 99% fatal, yet 100% preventable disease.

Fear: The word “fear” has three meanings in this year’s theme. Firstly, it relates to the general fear caused by rabies, the fear people experience when encountering rabid animals, and the fear that people live with in communities plagued by rabies. The second meaning relates directly to the symptom of fear that people may experience when infected with rabies. Lastly, fear relates to the fear caused by ‘fake news’ or myths about rabies – making people afraid of vaccination, making people afraid to get their animals sterilized or vaccinated, and making people believe in ineffective treatments for the disease.
