JK Lakshmipat University launches new integrated program with St. Cloud State University to make International education available despite COVID-19

Jaipur, September 2020:  When the students’ dreams of studying in a foreign university are getting shattered because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, leading educational institute JK Lakshmipat University (JKLU) has decided to collaborate with the prestigious St. Cloud State University, USA to make the students’ wishes fulfilled in the unprecedented times of COVID-19. The new curriculum, designed by both the Universities, will enable students to get a proper Engineering Management degree in five years.

Under this program, the students will pursue this degree in a 3.5+1.5 year of duration. In the first 3.5 years, the student will be studying at the JKLU campus and the remaining 1.5 years, which comprises of six months project and one year study, at St. Cloud State University. Through these programs offered at JKLU, the Indian Students do not have to appear for the TOEFL exam and will also save one year of his academic year in bagging the Masters degree. It will also enable them to save the living expenses which they would have to shell out while staying in the USA.

Founded in 1869, St. Cloud State is a leading comprehensive public university in the Upper Midwest of the United States. It delivers active and applied to learn via direct access to professors, local businesses, and industry leaders. The university has a mission to unleash ideas, imagination, purpose, and promise.

Prof. Raina feels that the collaboration and the new course have been fruitful for students, who want to have a foreign degree in their curriculum vitae. 

“If we look at the various data, the United States of America has always one of the preferred destinations for Indian students to pursue higher education. In 2019, the total number of Indian students in the US has reached a record high of 202,014, which is much higher as compared to the universities in Australia, Canada, the UK and Germany. Currently, no foreign embassy is offering visas to Indian Students as there are travel restrictions due to pandemic and the situation is likely to continue for some months. Therefore, Indian students should take benefit of the International Articulation program, which is being offered at JK Lakshmipat University to save the precious academic year,” said Dr. RL Raina.

Esperer Onco Nutrition (EON) Announces No More Malnutrition, a Socially Responsible Mission

30th September, 2020, Mumbai: The occurrence of malnutrition in cancer patients varies from 30% to 80%. Malnutrition and Cachexia -associated weight loss in cancer patients is understood to be initiated by the grouping of inflammation, under nutrition and cancer-brought catabolism. Mission No More Malnutrition is a noble mission to combat and arrest the crucial issue of malnutrition plaguing the cancer care process in India. EON is a bioresearch organization in Mumbai making significant contributions in the nutritional therapy space for cancer patients since 2018.

Esperer Nutrition undertakes intensive well-rounded cancer research and believes that the disease itself is somatic but the suffering and often death resulting from it is due to psychological reasons more than from the biological disease. Esperer Nutrition intends to re-inculcate faith in life and hope for life in patients. It is a mission that was envisioned when Esperer Nutrition identified the Indian market flooded with international nutritional formulas that weren’t best suited for Indian cancer patients; they were inaccessible and very expensive.  In its journey to discover its mission as cancer research organization, Esperer recognized this‘AHurdle’ of accessibility, affordability and acceptability which is arising with an increasing number of international formulas in the Indian market.

EON aims to address the problem of malnutrition by cracking the aforementioned dilemmas of accessibility, affordability and acceptability with a passion driven project. To accomplish this goal; narrowing the focus and getting more specific Esperer Nutrition is building an Indian gut specific nutritional product to combat Malnutrition. Esperer Nutrition deems it necessary for targeted nutrition to hold hands with nutritional therapy.

Keeping ‘AHurdle’ in mind Esperer Nutrition now has a mission, Mission No More MalnutritionNo more Malnutrition is a moral initiative taken up by Esperer Nutrition to reach out a lending hand to financially challenged patients and help them by co-paying for Esperer’s research based condition specific nutrition products and supplements. This would cut the cord of the vicious circle of Malnutrition and help patients recover without bearing the financial brunt. The co-payment program undertaken by Esperer Nutrition would envisage Esperer Nutrition paying for the majority amount with a minimal contribution from the patient. In cases calling in for complete financial assistance Esperer will bear the complete cost to deliver the best and desired nutrition to the patient. Esperer’s Co-Pay program can be accessed from their website by a simple form or can also be availed by calling in the customer care services with the entire start-to-end budget decision process not taking more than 48 hours with the help of an expert committee set up for the cause by Esperer Nutrition.

With NM, EON aims to make targeted nutrition easy to access and afford by the patient through as many convenient channels as possible. This mission will also ensure that the patient grasps beneficial and obtainable nutrition to deal with Malnutrition. Importantly, EON wants the patient to enjoy the product and in effect increase the resulting compliance and reduce patients succumbing to death due to malnutrition.

“Cancer care as a disease management program should keep widening its horizons from as many sighted and available areas as possible due to its large-scale effects on the patient more psychologically than somatically. We at EON grab every opportunity we can to make this deadly disease more manageable for our patients. NM is one such mission for us where we aim to save 30% of patients who could be possibly saved with efficient delivery of targeted nutrition by assisting them in bearing the financial burden”, says, Raktim Chattopadhyay, Founder & CEO at Esperer Onco Nutrition (EON).

About EON

Esperer Nutrition strives to champion the role of nutritional therapies that have proven clinical & health economic value, & improve the quality of people’s lives. EON is destined to understand, treat & help prevent a range of medical conditions by leveraging nutrition and life sciences.

~ This shudh-desi comedy movie features talented actors Sanjay Mishra, Ram Kapoor, Raghav Juyal, Abhishek Chauhan, Nidhi Singh and Namit Das ~

~ With dabanng characters, quirky dialogues and a powerful message, Bahut Hua Sammaan is set to launch on Disney+ Hotstar VIP on 2nd October 2020 ~

Mumbai, 30th September 2020: When two engineering students and part-time con men decide to rob a bank in the quaint town of Varanasi – a series of unfortunate events unfold! Hotstar Specials is set to take you on a laugh riot with movie Bahut Hua Sammaan – a satire that sheds light on the struggles of today’s youth and scams that have affected the society; but with a pinch of salt and a truckload of humour. Starring Sanjay Mishra, Raghav Juyal, Abhishek Chauhan, Ram Kapoor, Nidhi Singh and Namit Das, the movie features dabanng characters and quirky one-liners that bring alive the charm of heartland India. Produced by Yoodlee Films - the film production studio from Saregama, Bahut Hua Sammaan has been directed by Ashish Shukla and is set to launch on Disney+ Hotstar VIP on 2nd October 2020.

Bahut Hua Sammaan is the story of Bony and Fundoo who agree to rob a bank since they are unable to find a job after failing their final year of engineering. Guided by an odd old man fondly known as Bakch*d Baba, their masterplan goes totally awry as they realize that the bank has already been robbed and they have been arrested for it. In an attempt to clear their name, they soon fight off assassins, seasoned robbers, elite politicians and religious gurus; all the while unravelling a larger scam. Riddled with humour, the narrative challenges a myriad societal issue faced by today’s youth.

Actor Sanjay Mishra said, “A satire at its core, Bahut Hua Sammaan is a humorous take on the perils of unemployment and also touches upon issues faced by the youth today. The most intriguing part of this movie is the character of Bakch*d Baba; it is one of the most exceptional characters that I’ve played – the way he talks, and his mannerisms are all too real. People are guaranteed a good laugh!”

Dancer and actor Raghav Juyal added, “It’s a funny movie that revolves around two students and con-men who are trying to make easy money but end up finding themselves in a situation that unravels political scams. Even though the movie is addressing a serious issue, there is not a single dull moment. Every character is out-of-this-world yet fits into this story wonderfully well.”

Actor Ram Kapoor said, “Doing movies is always fun, especially one that holds a mirror to today’s societal issues but in a way that makes you want to laugh out loud. In Bahut Hua Sammaan, people will see me in a new avatar of an assassin; it’s not everyday that you get a chance to play a role that is so different from something you’ve done before:


Small time con artists and not-so-good students Bony and Fundoo fail to grab a job offer at the end of their engineering program since they have not been able to secure a passing grade. This failure coupled with insults from the principal of their college, the boys see a bleak future and more importantly a loss of their reputation among their peers. They see a ray of hope in whacked out old man fondly called Bakchod Baba who has devised a masterplan to rob a bank in their campus. As an unfortunate series of comedic events unfold, Bony and Fundoo soon find themselves in the centre of an investigation headed by dabanng female cop Bobby Tiwari. They must now work towards clearing their name and getting out of a scam that impacts their lives.

We believe that every individual in its person capacity has some special talent, however in case of these patients, their disease becomes their identity and we want them to move away from this thought and believe in themselves.
