Amrutanjan Comfy rolls out menstrual hygiene awareness initiative across more towns

Telugu super news,December 4th, 2023:  The company, which has already raised awareness among 4.5 lakh young girls across 1,450 towns in India about menstrual hygiene, is now rolling out the initiative in 360 towns across Tamil Nadu, Madhya Pradesh, Jharkhand and Uttar Pradesh to reach out to another 2.5 lakh girl students across four states in India to raise awareness as part of the next phase of its Project Disha initiative. Comfy Snug Fita fast-growing menstrual hygiene brand from the house of Amrutanjan Health Care.

At the end of the third phase, Project Disha would have directly impacted 7 lakh girls in over 1,800 towns across India. As part of the drive, the company also distributed their Sanitary Pads – Comfy, which offers 80% better absorption than cloth and are priced reasonably. Now in its third year, Project Disha has been implemented in 10 states, covering 900 towns, 400 schools, and 100 Anganwadi centers. The project extends its reach to homes and high-footfall areas.

Project Disha is part of Amrutanjan Comfy’s commitment to increase awareness about menstrual hygiene and educate women about the benefits of using sanitary pads over cloth usage. The company recognises the pivotal role that proper hygiene plays in women’s health and well-being, and it wants to empower them by dismantling the barriers that hinder their access to essential menstrual hygiene products.

Mr. S. Sambhu Prasad, Chairman & Managing Director, Amrutanjan Health Care Limited, said, “Elevating women’s hygiene transcends societal duty; it stands as a fundamental necessity. Fostering a robust and healthier society hinges on guaranteeing that the women in our communities not only have access to top-tier and affordable hygiene products but also receive comprehensive education on the subject. We acknowledge that the prosperity of our nation is intricately linked to the well-being of its women. Thus, our unwavering commitment is geared towards actively contributing to the realization of this imperative goal.”

Menstrual health awareness and education remain limited in many parts of India, with 50% of women aged between 15-24 years still using cloth for menstrual hygiene due to affordability and accessibility challenges. Raising awareness about women’s hygiene in rural areas is of paramount importance, as it directly impacts multiple facets of life. Access to hygiene resources and knowledge not only safeguards their health but also empowers them, enhancing their self-esteem and dignity. Moreover, it plays a crucial role in education, as girls with the knowledge and resources for good hygiene are more likely to attend school regularly with fewer hygiene-related interruptions. In addition to the personal and educational benefits, improved women’s hygiene can have economic implications, such as reduced healthcare expenses and enabling them to actively participate in income-generating activities.

Amrutanjan Healthcare has also worked with the Samvedana Development Society to create menstrual hygiene awareness and promote sanitary pad usage in Uttar Pradesh’s Hardoi district during FY22. Through education, access to high-quality products, and awareness-building, Amrutanjan hopes to transform communities, empower women, and create a healthy future for all women.

Venkaiah Naidu unveils ‘Live For A Legacy’, a book written by the city’s well-known Robotic Cancer Surgeon

Telugu super news,Hyderabad, November 16, 2023:Former Vice President of India, M. Venkaiah Naidu unveiled a book titled ‘Live For A Legacy’, a Perspective of a Cancer Surgeon, Dr. Chinnababu Sunkavalli in a function held at Hotel Daspalla on Wednesday evening. The book was written as narrated to, Mr Arun Tiwari

Early detection, daily exercise, and eating good food are important for a healthy body and mind. He told doctors to take time out on weekends and travel to neighbourhoods and rural areas to create awareness about cancer and healthy lifestyles. People will listen to doctors.

Cancer is not a death sentence anymore. With the latest technology, we need not worry. There are the latest technologies, competent doctors and hospitals available to treat cancer, he said.

He stressed healthy eating habits. Nowadays kitchens have become inactive and people prefer instant food. If you eat instant food, you will get constant diseases, he said. He stressed eating indigenous food.

I am retired but not yet tired. I prefer going to meetings to get inspired, Venkaiah Naidu added.

We live to leave and what we leave behind will live on in the hearts of those whom we touch with our living. This is as exciting as fearful. For India to have better cancer survival rates we all need to collectively work to prevent and detect early, said Dr. Chinnababu in his opening remarks.

Death by Cancer has reduced by 33% in Western countries due to early detection, awareness and good technologies and medication, Dr Chinnababu said.

Prof Arun Tiwari the co-author said Dr Abdul Kalam advised him to write a book every year, which I never thought I would do, but it is happening now. This is my 25th book. He advised people to follow my elders’ advice. We become what we are because of our teachers.

The book provides the science behind the evolution of cancer over a hundred years and leaves hope and optimism. It talks about options available for treatment and ways to contain it. The WHO set the Goal of Cervical Cancer Elimination by 2030 to vaccinate 90% of girls by 15 years of age against the HPV and 190 countries are signatories to the declaration. One chapter in the book dealt with HPV Vaccine human papillomavirus).

More than 190 countries are signatories to this declaration and have committed to the achievement of the Targets, set as follows: The first is for 90% of girls to be fully vaccinated against the human papillomavirus (HPV) by the age of 15 years.

The book establishes the purpose of life as a legacy, introduces the science behind cancer in a conscious and easy-to-understand manner, oversees present and emerging treatment scenarios and takes away the fear of the dreaded malady of cancer.

Dr. Chinnababu Sunkavalli is a Robotic Cancer Surgeon, researcher and social entrepreneur. He has crafted a spectrum of legacy already from cutting-edge cancer treatment to emerging bio-pharmaceutical research to mobile cancer diagnostics units in rural areas.

Prof. Arun Tiwari is a former missile scientist, a pioneer of civilian spinoffs of defence technology in India, an earnest pupil of Dr APJ Abdul Kalam, the 11th President of India and the co-author of his autobiography Wings of Fire, celebrated as a modern classic. This is his 25th book.

The Foreword of the book is written by Bart S. Fisher, an International Attorney and Philanthropist. He is working with Dr Chinnababu Sunkavalli and the Grace Cancer Foundation to establish a bone marrow transplant registry in India as a resource to treat marrow failure diseases such as leukaemia and thalassemia. He writes Cancer which remains unconquered now is likely to turn in future into another chronic disease rather than a fatal one taking lives.

Dr Chinnababu has made developing an affordable HPV vaccine a part of his legacy. I will be supporting it in due course, Bart S. Fisher wrote in the preface.

Bart writes that it is a must to read books, not only medical fraternity but everyone whom the cancer touched in some way or the other. The book offers a positive outlook for the future of cancer treatment.

The message of the book is abundantly clear to make society get involved in the cancer treatment of the poor and their rehabilitation, he added.

India has the tradition of taking care of the boor by the affluent, But there is some slippage and the book rightly highlights this issue.

What succeeds in India can become the template for the rest of the developing world, Bart stated.

It is difficult for medical professionals to write a book as time is scarce for them. A book like this is only written occasionally writes Dr Rajendra Achyut Badwe, Director of Tata Memorial Centre, Mumbai in an introduction to the book. Cancer is now conquered in terms of mortality and might become chronic in future. It would be even curable, he writes.

The book published praises received from different walks of life. Notable among them is Venkaiah Naidu, former Vice President who said cancer is a societal disease that affects everyone and all must support patients to mitigate their pain.

Another noteworthy praise is from Dr. Dattatreyudu Nori, a noted Indo-American radiation oncologist said that the book will inspire the next generation of Cancer Surgeons.

Dr G. Surender Rao, Managing Director of Yashoda Hospitals heaped praise on Dr Chinnababu as a shining star of Yashoda’s galaxy. He has a great mix of medical skills and team building. For us, our legacy is leading cancer treatment in India and this book points to the way ahead.

Dr Pavan Gorukanti, Director of Yashoda Hospitals, who was the guest of honour added that Hyderabad is the hub for the best of the best medical care and medical devices for cancer and Oncologists, the book is a great contribution to the profession, he added.

Dr. Gullapalli N. Rao, Founder-Chair of LV Prasad Eye Institute adds that the book candidly presents the science of cancer to dispel fear and create awareness that it is just another disease that can be tackled and defeated.

Another important message of the book is “Cancer is the most curable chronic disease. But it is more often fatal as well”.

The book is divided into four sections—Becoming, Science, Treatment and Containing Cancer. It has 24 chapters.

The 292-page, hardbound English book is published by Sakal Publications. It is written in easy-to-follow language.

The launch was graced by over 200 who’s who of the medical fraternity of the city.

RSV infection in children

Dr. Srinivas Jakka, Senior Consultant Paediatrician and Pulmonologist,

Ankura Hospital for Women and Children

Telugu super news,november 8th,2023:Respiratory syncytial virus, or RSV, is one of the most common viruses causing respiratory infection across the world. Many people recover in a week or two with mild, cold-like symptoms but the disease can be severe in infants, elderly populations, and certain high-risk groups.

Mode of spread

RSV is highly contagious. It spreads through droplets when an infected person coughs or sneezes. The virus enters the body when an individual inhales air containing the infected droplets. It can also be spread by contact with a contaminated surface. RSV now accounts for 14% of all influenza-like illnesses (ILI) across the country. RSV often occurs in yearly outbreaks in communities, classrooms, and childcare centres. The infection is more common in early spring and winter months. RSV can affect a person of any age but causes the most problems for infants and the elderly. Also, babies born prematurely or with diseases of the heart, lung, or immune system are at increased risk for more severe illness.

Common symptoms

Symptoms start about 2 to 5 days after contact with the virus. The early phase of RSV in babies and young children is often mild, like the common cold. In younger children, the illness may cause inflammation in the airways (bronchiolitis) and lungs (pneumonia) causing more severe illness.

The most common symptoms of RSV include:

·       Fever  

·       Runny nose

·       Sore throat

·       Cough

·       Difficulty in feeding

·       Wheezing

·       Breathlessness (breathing faster than usual, or increased work of breathing)

·       Short periods without breathing (apnea)

·       Turning blue around the lips and fingertips 

The symptoms of RSV can however mimic many other respiratory viral infections. The child needs to be seen by a Paediatrician if any worrying symptoms like high temperatures, severe cough, poor feeding, or breathing difficulties, drowsiness etc. are seen.

Diagnosis of RSV infection

The diagnosis is based on the above symptoms and specific tests. There are now tests available (PCR tests) to confirm the diagnosis of RSV infection as well as other common viruses. These involve taking a swab from the nose similar to the COVID testing.

Treatment will depend on the child’s symptoms, age, and general health. Antibiotics are not effective against RSV and other viruses that cause common cold and flu-like symptoms. Specific treatments using drugs like Ribavirin are indicated only in selected groups of patients. In the remaining patients, treatment is mainly symptomatic and supportive.

This includes ensuring that the child receives adequate fluids orally. Paracetamol might be given for fever. Sick patients might require hospital admission and additional treatments like intravenous (IV) fluids, oxygen, and nebulization. Extremely sick patients might require Intensive care unit (ICU) admission and breathing support using a breathing machine (ventilator).


RSV vaccination is available for the elderly (above 60 years) and at-risk newborn babies in some countries. However, there are some general measures that can be taken to reduce the risk of infection including:

·       Encouraging breastfeeding.

·       Preventing contact with sick people.

·       General hygienic measures like the use of masks, sanitizers,  hand hygiene etc.

·       Sick people should avoid going to school, work, and other public places.

·       Sick people should cover their mouths when coughing or sneezing.

These measures are especially important in the above-mentioned high-risk groups during the RSV season.

Vicks Cough Drops ensures no cheer goes unheard with a special sign language version of #VicksKholIndiaBol Cheer Anthem

Telugu super news,India, novenber 1,2023: Vicks Cough Drops, the trusted brand known for its commitment to giving India a khich khich free voice, announced the launch of its special Indian Sign Language version of the #VicksKholIndiaBol Cheer Anthem in collaboration with ‘India Signing Hands’ – an organization dedicated to promoting Education, Awareness, and Accessibility for the Deaf Community in India.

Vicks Cough Drops has always been known for its iconic campaigns highlighting how it has enabled Indians to speak up in critical moments of life without any khich khich. Earlier this month, Vicks Cough Drops joined hands with cricket icon Yuvraj Singh to unveil its new #VicksKholIndiaBol Cheer Anthem celebrating our nation’s boundless enthusiasm for cricket and enable 142 crore Voice champions to cheer for their team this cricket season. 

Mr. Sahil Sethi, Category Leader – Personal Healthcare, P&G India stated, “Our #VicksKholIndiaBol anthem in collaboration with Yuvraj Singh, aims to inspire millions to cheer aloud with a khich khich free voice and support their team this cricket season with a josh like never before. Towards ensuring that no cheer goes unheard, we are delighted to launch a special version of this anthem in Indian Sign Language in collaboration with India Signing Hands for the 6.3 crore hearing-impaired cricket fans. Directed, performed, and edited by enthusiastic members of the hearing-impaired community from India Signing Hands, in collaboration with Vicks India, the sign language version brings together this special community of fans in cheering through their gestures, and celebrating their passion for the game.”

Mr. Alok Kejriwal, Founder & CEO – India Signing Hands shared, “It’s crucial to recognize that the individuals of the deaf community possess extraordinary talents, just like anyone else.  However, due to the physical constraints, they often find themselves and their voices hidden from the larger narrative of the society. Vicks has been a household brand for many of us, and we were so excited to be approached by Vicks Cough Drops to create this fun anthem in Indian Sign language to enable the deaf to also join in to cheer during this cricket season. The experience was incredibly moving. The participants, who often struggle to express themselves, found their voices through the anthem. They felt empowered, and the recording process became a memorable journey for many, filled with emotion and joy. We applaud Vicks Cough Drops for this inclusive effort and thank Yuvraj for his enthusiastic support.” 

The anthem features passionate fans from the community and Cricket icon Yuvraj Singh himself grooving to the lyrics using the Indian Sign Language. 

“I enjoyed learning and performing the #VicksKholIndiaBol anthem in Indian Sign Language. I thank Vicks and India Signing hands for this opportunity to connect with this very special community of cricket fans,” said Yuvraj Singh while sharing his experience.
