फोर्टिस अस्पताल मुलुंड ने मध्य मुंबई में पहला मूवमेंट डिसऑर्डर एंड डीबीएस क्लीनिक खोला

मुम्बई, महाराष्ट्र, भारत

  • यह विशेष विभाग चलने-फिरने में परेशानी और दिक्कत महसूस करने वाले मरीजों को संपूर्ण नजरिए से फिर से ठीक से चलने-फिरने की ताकत प्रदान करता है

  • हर साल, फोर्टिस अस्पताल मुलुंड में ठीक तरह से चलने-फिरने में परेशानी महसूस करने वाले करीब 350-400 लोगों का इलाज होता है

फोर्टिस अस्पताल मुलुंड ने मूवमेंट डिसऑर्डर एंड डीबीएस क्लीनिक का शुभारंभ किया। यह चलने-फिरने में तरह-तरह की परेशानी महसूस करने वाले लोगों के इलाज के लिए एक समर्पित सुविधा है। यहां डायस्टोनिया, ट्रेमर्स, चेहरे पर आने वाली ऐंठन यानी हेमिफेशियल स्‍पाज्‍़म और एटैक्सिया का इलाज किया जाता है। इस यूनिट का उद्घाटन न्यूरो और स्पाइन सर्जरी के सीनियर कंसल्‍टेंट डॉ. गुरनीत सिंह साहनी और मुलुंड स्थित फोर्टिस अस्पताल के फैसिलिटी डायरेक्टर डॉ. विशाल बेरी ने किया। इस अवसर पर पहले चलने-फिरने में परेशानी महसूस करने वाले और अब अपना सफलतापूर्वक इलाज करा चुके मरीज भी मौजूद थे।

फोर्टिस अस्पताल मुलुंड में मूवमेंट डिसऑर्डर एंड डीबीएस क्लीनिक के शुभारंभ अवसर पर अस्पताल की टीम

मूवमेंट डिसऑर्डर क्लीनिक का संचालन डॉ. गुरनीत सिंह साहनी की अगुवाई में उनकी टीम करेगी। इस टीम में मूवमेंट डिसऑर्डर विशेषज्ञ डॉ. अनिल वेंकट चलम और डॉ. सईद मोइद जफर शामिल है। यह क्लीनिक मरीजों की बीमारी और स्थिति की पूरी तरह से जांच कर व्यक्तिगत उपचार योजना प्रदान करता है। इनमें न्यूरोलॉजिस्ट्स से सलाह, मेडिकशन थेरेपी, बोटोक्स के इंजेक्शन और संभावित सर्जरी शामिल है। इलाज के तहत मरीज की स्टीरियोटैक्टिक सर्जरी, रेडियो फ्रीक्‍वेंसी सर्जरी, डीप ब्रेन स्टिम्युलेशन (डीबीएस) करने के साथ रोगियों में शारीरिक और संज्ञान लेने की शक्तियां फिर से विकसित की जाती है। इसके अलावा साइकोथेरेपी से भी मरीजों का इलाज किया जाता है।

फोर्टिस अस्पताल मुलुंड में न्यूरो और स्पाइन सर्जरी के सीनियर कंसलटेंट डॉ. गुरनीत सिंह साहनी ने कहा, “चलने-फिरने में गड़बड़ी या परेशानी लंबे समय से चली आ रही पुरानी बीमारी का नतीजा होती है, जो मरीजों और उनके परिवार के लिए काफी चुनौतियां पैदा करती हैं। मरीजों की जांच के बाद देखा गया है कि पिछले कुछ सालों से इस तरह के मामले बढ़ रहे हैं। इस समय चलने-फिरने में होने वाली परेशानी से प्रति 10 लाख लोगों में से 60 से 100 लोग पीड़ित है। यह याद रखना बहुत जरूरी है कि इस बीमारी को दूर करने और मरीजों का जीवन-स्तर सुधारने के लिए इलाज के विकल्प उपलब्ध हैं।’

चलने-फिरने की बीमारी से पीड़ित लोगों के इलाज की प्रक्रिया तब और भी जटिल हो जाती है, जब इसके काफी गंभीर लक्षण दिखते हैं। हाथ पैरों का न चाहते हुए हिलना और हाथ पैरों में कंपकंपी को अक्सर इलाज कराने योग्य बीमारी न मानकर पारिवारिक लक्षण नाम कर खारिज कर दिया जाता है। इससे मरीजों को अक्सर शर्मिंदगी झेलनी पड़ती है। हालांकि, इस तरह की धारणाएं लोगों की जिंदगी पर असर डालती है, इसलिए इस तरह की बीमारियों का समय पर इलाज और जांच कराना काफी महत्वपूर्ण हो जाता है। मूवमेंट डिसऑर्डर क्‍लीनिक में टीम मरीजों के इलाज के लिए नई तकनीकी और वैज्ञानिक प्रगति का सहारा लेने के लिए पूरी तरह समर्पित है। यहां टीम की ओर से रोगियों का बेहतर ढंग से इलाज के लिए नई चिकित्सा तकनीक को अपनाया जाता है।

चलने-फिरने और कोई काम करने में दिक्कत महसूस करने वाले मरीजों के लिए मूवमेंट डिसऑर्डर एंड डीबीएस क्लीनिक की जरूरत पर जोर देते हुए डॉ. गुरनीत सिंह साहनी ने कहा, “आम धारणा के विपरीत चलने-फिरने में दिक्कत या परेशानी किसी भी उम्र में महसूस की सकती है। यह केवल बुजुर्गों को ही नहीं होती, जैसा कि अक्सर माना जाता है। हालांकि, पार्किंसन रोग बुढ़ापे से जुड़ा है, कई स्थितियों जैसे डायस्टोनिया का जेनेटिक आधार होता है, इस कारण यह बीमारी नौजवानों में भी दिखाई देती है। मरीजों की बढ़ती हुई तादाद से संपूर्ण विशेषज्ञता रखने वाले मूवमेंट डिसऑर्डर एंड डीबीएस क्‍लीनिक की जरूरत महसूस होने लगी है, जिससे अलग-अलग बीमारी से पीड़ित रोगियों की अलग-अलग चिकित्सा संबंधी जरूरतों को प्रभावी ढंग से पूरा किया जा सके।’’ 


मूवमेंट डिसऑर्डर के क्षेत्र में सबसे महत्वपूर्ण चुनौती इस स्थिति को लेकर जागरूकता का अभाव है। पब्लिक के साथ कई अस्पतालों के डॉक्टरों में इस बीमारी को लेकर पर्याप्त जागरूकता नहीं है। चलने–फिरने में दिक्कत या परेशानी का दायरा अलग-अलग मरीजों में अलग-अलग हो सकता है। उदाहरण के लिए हाथ पैरों में कंपन से पीडि़त मरीज अजीबीगरीब हरकतें कर सकता है। जबकि पार्किंसन बीमारी से पीड़ित मरीजों में धीमी और हाथ-पैरों को झटकने की आदत देखी जा सकती है। बीमारी के इन अलग-अलग लक्षणों के बावजूद दोनों ही तरह के मरीजों को इलाज की जरूरत होती है, जो मूवमेंट डिसऑर्डर एंड डीबीएस क्लीनिक में विशेषज्ञों की देखरेख में इलाज से प्रभावी ढंग से पूरी हो सकती हैं। 


मुलुंड के फोर्टिस अस्पताल में फैसिलिटी डायरेक्टर डॉ. विशाल बेरी ने कहा, “चलने-फिरने में होने वाली गड़बड़ियों के प्रति मरीजों को जागरूक करने की जरूरत काफी तेजी से उभर रही है। इससे मरीजों को जल्दी जांच कराने और इलाज शुरू करने में मदद मिल सकती है। चलने-फिरने में मरीजों को होने वाली परेशानी से रोगियों और उनके परिवारों पर भावनात्मक बोझ बढ़ जाता है। चिकित्‍सा उपचार के साथ थेरेपी से, जिसमें मनोवैज्ञनिकों से सलाह और समर्थन व मदद देने वाले समूह शामिल हैं, हम मरीजों का इलाज करते हैं। इससे हम मरीजों को अपनी स्थिति सकारात्मक और प्रभावी ढंग से मैनेज करने में मदद करना चाहते हैं।’’

Panchami Ghavri Challenges Stereotypes: 'Women Can Work Together' in 'The Crew'

In an industry often dominated by male-centric narratives, casting director Panchami Ghavri stands as a beacon of change, spearheading projects that celebrate the strength and complexity of female characters. Ghavri's upcoming project, "The Crew," promises to be a game-changer, boasting a stellar cast led by powerhouse actresses Tabu, Kareena Kapoor, and Kriti Sanon. Now, Panchami opens up about the importance of female-centric films, the evolving preferences of the audience, and her hopes for the impact of such projects.
"I think there always has been a disparity in the kind of box office openings female-led films take as compared to male," Ghavri reflects candidly. "Our male-to-women ratio is not the best in general. However, I haven’t seen this much excitement about a female-led film in a long, long time. Everyone I meet is excited about 'The Crew.' It’s also a really exciting cast; we haven’t seen such a strong female cast in a long time."
Ghavri's enthusiasm for the project is palpable, fueled by the prospect of challenging age-old norms and stereotypes. "First of all, to break the age-old norm that women can’t work together. Whoever said this was a man," she quips with a smile. "I think women have really interesting stories to tell, and through a different lens. Rhea [Kapoor] herself is always looking for scripts that have a strong female voice in them. I think in India, we’re still a long way to go, but we’re getting there for sure!"
Indeed, the landscape of Indian cinema is witnessing a gradual but significant shift, as audiences increasingly gravitate towards narratives centered on women. Ghavri acknowledges this trend, noting, "The audience is changing their preferences when it comes to female-led films. I’m a woman, and I love strong narratives of women. At the end of the day, women are able to hustle at work, handle kids, run a home, manage family expectations—all of it simultaneously."
With "The Crew," Ghavri and her team are poised to make a significant impact, not only in challenging gender stereotypes but also in amplifying the voices of women in cinema. "Then often you hear of men needing help with getting appointments for themselves," Ghavri remarks with a laugh. "It’s funny, but it’s true. So I think the stronger our voice, the more we will be heard. Things are changing for sure!"
As the film industry continues to evolve, Ghavri remains committed to championing stories that resonate with authenticity and depth. With "The Crew," she hopes to inspire a new generation of filmmakers and audiences alike, proving that women-led narratives are not only relevant but essential in shaping the cultural landscape of Indian cinema.
On the work front, Panchami Ghavri is making waves with her exciting lineup of upcoming projects and recent releases. With "The Crew" and "Mr and Mrs Mahi" on the horizon, Ghavri is poised to showcase her knack for assembling stellar casts and championing compelling narratives. These projects promise to captivate audiences with their diverse storytelling and dynamic characters. Meanwhile, Ghavri's recent releases, including "Murder Mubarak," "Yodha," "Karmma Calling," and "Showtime," have garnered praise for their innovative approach and engaging storytelling. As a casting director with an eye for talent and a commitment to pushing boundaries, Ghavri continues to leave an indelible mark on the Indian film industry.

The restaurant embraces the natural world with abundant foliage that creates a refreshing and lively backdrop. Plants not only offer a touch of nature, but they also induce a sense of tranquillity, making it the ideal place for families to unwind and enjoy their dinner together. Paintings depicting natural elements decorate the walls and ceiling. These artworks, together with the delicate illumination provided by cane hanging lamps, contribute to a relaxing atmosphere. The lighting, inspired by the mellow glow of sunsets, sets the tone for a laid-back eating experience, ideal for families looking for a hearty lunch. The lighting in the restaurant is deliberately designed to mimic the warm hues of a sunset, providing a golden glow across the space.

The menu features an array of fresh and exotic seafood dishes, which is their speciality, however, they also have vegetarian options.

नई दिल्ली, दिल्ली, भारत

भारत सरकार के ग्रामीण विकास मंत्रालय (MoRD) ने IFMR में अब्दुल लतीफ जमील पॉवर्टी एक्शन लैब (J-PAL) दक्षिण एशिया को 'समावेशी आजीविका' कार्यक्रम हेतु एक नोलेज पार्टनर के रूप भागीदार बनाया है। यह कार्यक्रम ग्रामीण महिलाओं को आत्मनिर्भरता के मार्ग पर लाने के लिए डिज़ाइन किया गया एक व्यापक आजीविका कार्यक्रम है।

'समावेशी आजीविका' कार्यक्रम BRAC के ग्रेजुएशन एप्रोच के अनुकूल काम करेगा, जो एक व्यापक आजीविका कार्यक्रम है। यह J-PAL और इनोवेशन फॉर पॉवर्टी एक्शन से संबंद्धित शोधकर्ताओं द्वारा यादृच्छिक मूल्यांकन को सबसे गरीब परिवारों को अत्याधिक गरीबी से बाहर निकालने में प्रभावी पाया गया है।

इस साझेदारी के हिस्से के रूप में, J-PAL दक्षिण एशिया भारत में समावेशी आजीविका का विस्तार करने के लिए निर्णय लेने के लिए वैज्ञानिक साक्ष्य और डेटा का उपयोग करने में MoRD का समर्थन करेगा।

'समावेशी आजीविका में व्यवसाय प्रशिक्षण, जीवन-कौशल कोचिंग और अल्पकालिक वित्तीय सहायता शामिल होगी और इसे MoRD के प्रमुख आजीविका कार्यक्रम दीनदयाल अंत्योदय योजना - राष्ट्रीय ग्रामीण आजीविका मिशन (DAY-NRLM) के माध्यम से पूरे भारत में ग्रामीण महिलाओं को प्रशासित किया जाएगा।

समझौता ज्ञापन पर चरणजीत सिंह, अतिरिक्त सचिव, ग्रामीण आजीविका, ग्रामीण विकास मंत्रालय, स्मृति शरण, संयुक्त सचिव, ग्रामीण आजीविका, ग्रामीण विकास मंत्रालय, निवेदिता प्रसाद, उप सचिव, ग्रामीण विकास विभाग, रमन वाधवा, निदेशक, डीएवाई-एनआरएलएम, और उषा रानी, आईबीसीबी एसआईएसडी और एचआर, एनआरएलएम, शोभिनी मुखर्जी, कार्यकारी निदेशक, जे-पाल दक्षिण एशिया एवं शरण्या चंद्रन, निदेशक, नीति और संचार, जे-पाल दक्षिण एशिया की उपस्थिति में हस्ताक्षर किए गए।

इस साझेदारी का प्रमुख उद्देश्य एक ऐसे ईको सिस्टम का निर्माण करना है जो विस्तृत साक्ष्य साझा करने, ज्ञान अंतराल को पाटने और राष्ट्रव्यापी विभिन्न राज्यों और संदर्भों में ग्रेजुएशन अपरोच को सफलतापूर्वक अपनाने के लिए आत्मविश्वास पैदा करने की दिशा में काम कर सके।

चरणजीत सिंह, अतिरिक्त सचिव, ग्रामीण आजीविका, ग्रामीण विकास मंत्रालय, ने कहा कि किसी भी कार्यक्रम को वास्तविक समय में फीडबेक प्राप्त होना महत्वपूर्ण है और यह समझौता ज्ञापन इस प्रक्रिया में मदद करेगा।

 J-PAL दक्षिण एशिया महिलाओं पर केन्द्रित विकास पर काम करने के लिए NRLPS-DAY-NRLM के भीतर नए शोध करने और डेटा उपयोग को संस्थागत बनाने हेतु MoRD के साथ मिलकर एक जेंडर इम्पैक्ट लैब भी स्थापित करेगा।

MoRD के साथ J-PAL दक्षिण एशिया की साझेदारी ASPIRE द्वारा समर्थित है जो कि बड़े पैमाने पर प्रभावशाली बदलाव लाने के लिए J-PAL दक्षिण एशिया और वेदीस फाउंडेशन की एक संयुक्त पहल है।

भारत सरकार का डीएवाई-एनआरएलएम विश्व के सबसे बड़े सामुदायिक जुड़ाव प्रयासों में से एक है, जिसने 90.4 लाख से अधिक स्वयं सहायता समूहों और 4 लाख से अधिक प्राथमिक और माध्यमिक स्तर के गठनों में 9.99 करोड़ से अधिक महिलाओं को संगठित किया है। यह कार्यक्रम स्थायी आजीविका को बढ़ावा देता है और महिलाओं को अपनी बचत करने में मदद करता है। लेकिन इन सबसे ऊपर, यह उन्हें गरिमापूर्ण जीवन जीने का अधिकार देता है।

नीति आयोग की बहुआयामी गरीबी सूचकांक प्रगति रिपोर्ट 2023 के अनुसार, भारत ने पिछले एक दशक में अत्यधिक वनरेबिलिटी को कम करने में महत्वपूर्ण प्रगति की है लेकिन लगभग 19.5 करोड़ लोग बहुआयामी गरीबी में रहना जारी रखते हैं।

पहली बार 2002 में बांग्लादेश में लागू किए गए ग्रेजुएशन अपरोच को J-PAL और इनोवेशन फॉर पॉवर्टी एक्शन से संबद्ध शोधकर्ताओं द्वारा सात देशों में गहनता से परीक्षण किया गया है। उनके निष्कर्षों से पता चलता है कि समर्थन का पूरा पैकेज प्राप्त करने वाले परिवारों में अधिक खर्च करने की क्षमता आई, वे नियमित रूप से खाते हैं, और उनकी उच्च आय और बचत हुई।

भारत में पश्चिम-बंगाल के मुर्शिदाबाद जिले में J-PAL के सह-संस्थापकों और नोबेल पुरस्कार विजेता अभिजीत बनर्जी और एस्थर डुफ्लो के नेतृत्व में एक मूल्यांकन में पाया गया कि कार्यक्रम का प्रभाव एक दशक बाद भी बना रहा। 2015 और 2019 के बीच, J-PAL दक्षिण एशिया और NGO बंधन-कोननगर ने झारखंड, ओडिशा, राजस्थान और बिहार में ग्रेजुएशन अप्रोच मॉडल को प्रायोगिक आधार पर शुरु किया।

आज ग्रेजुएशन अप्रोच जैसे साक्ष्य आधारित कार्यक्रमों की तत्काल आवश्यकता है । इनके व्यापक प्रभाव व लाभ पाने के लिए कई क्षेत्रों में लागू करने की ज़रूरत है।

J-PAL दक्षिण एशिया की कार्यकारी निदेशक शोभिनी मुखर्जी ने कहा, "ग्रेजुएशन अपरोच महिलाओं के नेतृत्व वाले विकास के लिए भारत सरकार के विज़न के लिए एक बड़ा बढ़ावा है। MoRD ने अपने निर्णय लेने में वैज्ञानिक साक्ष्य और डेटा को अपनाने में अभूतपूर्व नेतृत्व दिखाया है। समावेशी आजीविका एक शक्तिशाली अनुस्मारक है कि सरकारों, शैक्षणिक संस्थानों और नागरिक समाज संगठनों का एक मजबूत ईको सिस्टम बड़े पैमाने पर प्रभाव डालने के लिए महत्वपूर्ण हैं।

J-PAL दक्षिण एशिया बंधन-कोननगर के साथ मिलकर सतत जीविकोपरजन योजना (SJY) के विस्तार का समर्थन करने के लिए 2018 से बिहार सरकार के JEEViKA के साथ काम कर रहा है। अनुमान है कि यह दुनिया में ग्रेजुएशन अपरोच का सबसे बड़ा सरकार के नेतृत्व वाला स्केल-अप है। SJY पूरे बिहार में 2024 तक 200,000 महिला-प्रधान परिवारों तक पहुंचने का लक्ष्य रखता है।

J-PAL साउथ एशिया SJY के कार्यान्वयन से अपने निष्कर्ष और अंतर्दृष्टि साझा करने के लिए राज्य सरकारों और नागरिक समाज संगठनों को मिलाकर MoRD के नेतृत्व वाले गठबंधन के साथ भी सहयोग करेगा।
