International purple day for epilepsy awareness 2014 - SGTB khalsa college, University of Delhi partnering EKATWAM, the support group for Persons with Epilepsy

Celebrating the International Purple Day for Epilepsy Awareness, Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Khalsa College (University of Delhi) partnered Ekatwam, the support group for Epilepsy, to hold an awareness event on March 25, 2014 woven into a street play format.

With an audience of over 700 students, staff and members from the academic fraternity, dressed in purple, the event included enlightening deliberations by Dr Manjari Tripathi, Professor of Neurology, AIIMS and Mr Adosh. Datta, Secretary, Ekatwam. Ms Shivani Wazir Pasrich, actor, dancer, and former Miss India Worldwide anchored the event.

What touched the audience were talks by people who have epilepsy and brought out their life experiences; this included the 11 year old Anishka who braved the snide remarks of her classmates by saying, "I have epilepsy, do you have a problem?"

This was followed by a pledge taking ceremony where the entire audience pledged to support persons with epilepsy, and went on to sign their messages on the Purple Pledge Wall.

Dr Komal Kamra, faculty, host institute, thanked Ekatwam for having chosen SGTB Khalsa College to be the medium for spreading awareness on this medical problem which is mired in myths and discrimination.

The 17th Endowment Lecture (instituted in the name of Padma Bhushan Dr. Rajah Sir M.A. Muthiah Chettiar of Chettinad) entitled "The Ecotheoretical Turn of Theory Through The Literary Lens" delivered by Dr. Nirmal Selvamony (Department of English, Central University of Tamil Nadu, Thiruvarur, Tamil Nadu), on 12th March, 2014 in the Department of Modern Indian Languages and Literary Studies, University of Delhi, Delhi – 110 007 dealt with the theme on the relation between nature and culture portrayed in Tamil Literary texts.

Dr. Nirmal Selvamony, by defining the eco-theory of western scholars, astutely analyzed the classical Tamil texts (300 B.C.–200 A.D.) and thereby explained the tinai concept ( akam, interior feelings of heroine and puram, exterior actions of hero) propounded by Tolkappiyar, the earliest Tamil grammarian. The speaker illustrated his point by drawing attention to how human and natural beings entered into a special inter-relationship from the ancient times to the modern period. He quoted poems from the Sangam classics as well as from modern Tamil poems. The lecture was well received by a large audience of teachers and students.
