World Tuberculosis day 2020: It’s TIME..

World Tuberculosis(TB) day is commemorated on 24th March to raise public awareness about devastating health, social and economic consequences of TB, and to step up efforts to end global TB epidemic. In 1882 March 24th, Dr. Robert Koch discovered TB Bacilli, which is responsible for this deadly disease. His discovery was a breakthrough in diagnosing and curing this disease.

Robert Koch

Dr. Robert Koch identified the specific causative agents of tuberculosis, cholera, and anthrax and also gave experimental support for the concept of infectious disease. For his research on tuberculosis, Koch received the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1905.

TB remains the world’s deadliest infectious killer. Each day, over 4000 people lose their lives to TB and close to 30,000 people fall ill with this preventable and curable disease. Global efforts to combat TB have saved an estimated 58 million lives since the year 2000. India is determined to eliminate TB by 2025, we need more participation from the community to spread awareness about the early diagnosis and completion of  TB treatment. So be a leader for a TB-free world.

We made a short film on the awareness of Tuberculosis in 2018. Our small effort to make this short film won us awards in the national and state level given by Indian association of preventive and social medicine (IAPSM). We won 2nd prize in the national level & 1st prize in the state level.

As doctors we do our job by trying to spread awareness in every way possible, be it in the hospital, in family, amongst friends or in the society by making such a video. I hope and intend to keep spreading awareness by means of short films or other modalities possible. kindly LIKE and SHARE the video as much as you can and contribute your part for a TB-free world.

Sunday Sunset in Palamoor

As a passionate traveler, I love to explore many sunsets across the world and capture those Sunsets, as they always evoke good memories. But I never imagined that viewing sunset from Devungutta hill, Mahubnagar will be this magical. I indulged myself into this irradiating surrounding. Almost as if the sky has wrapped itself around the world, like a comforting blanket. Nothing could replicate this feeling.

Every sunset, puncturing feelings I’ve never felt before. Feelings and sights that put even the most beautiful sunsets to shame.
