A famous saying says “Giving is the best communication” and the Medical and HealthcareCamp held every year for the remote villages of Kolhapur district epitomizes it. Dating back to the year 2004 the Dilasa Medical Trust & Rehabilitation Centre, as its name goes, has been working to provide the much needed support and compassion to the working and labour classes who need it the most in the remote areas of Kolhapur and its adjoining districts. Sister organizations like Shree Aniruddha Upasana Foundation and others have also been involved in this ‘one of its kind’ of relief activity which doesn’t restrict itself to the limelight of 2 days of the Camp but is conducted throughout the year.

Kolhapur Medical Camp

Kolhapur incidentally is one of the most well-to-do districts in India yet there are many remote places where even basic necessities viz., electricity and lines of communication haven’t yet reached. And it is these areas in which Dilasa Medical Trust & Rehabilitation Centre conducts its Medical and Rehabilitation Camp. This year the Camp is to start from tomorrow i.e. 21st February 2016 and would be held over 2 days, till 22nd February 2016.

Sprawling over more than 90,000 sq. ft. the Camp is a much awaited event in these areas as it offers a complete and holistic healthcare to almost 60,000 villagers from almost 85 villages. Medical and healthcare services from a multitude of branches viz., dentistry, ophthalmology, general medicine, x-ray, pharmacy, paediatrics, ENT, cardiology, gynaecology, dermatology, homeopathy, surgery, pathology, etc. is provided to all the villagers for free. More than 150 doctors and close to 175 paramedics will be running these facilities this year. Last year saw almost 13,500 village patients being treated here.

When it comes to pollination or the natural process of transfer of pollen grains that are responsible for production of new trees and plants there is no other greater agent than honeybees. Across the world Honeybees are responsible for pollinating crops that make more than half of our diet. Had it not been honeybees, creation of new plants would have been difficult. But in the last few years honeybees globally have been threatened due to various reasons including disease.
Honeybees threatened by manmade disease
A shocking new study of University of Exeter, United Kingdom says the spread of a devastating virus that is endangering global bee populations is manmade and it is our trade and transportation ofbees for pollination that is making it ‘pandemic’.

United Nations has been deploying peacekeeping forces across the world in areas which are troubled or violence-torn for protecting the innocent and common people. Over the years India has been the biggest troop contributor to these UN missions. And it is not just Indian men who are going in the corners of the world to make it a safer and a peaceful place but Indian women too are not far behind.


The first ‘all-women contingent’ on a peacekeeping mission, was deployed in the year 2007 by the UN in the African country of Liberia, an Ebola pandemic and civil war-torn nation. This UN mission named ‘UN Mission in Liberia’ (UNMIL) had the Indian women personnel ofCRPF (Central Reserve Police Force) as one of its important formations. They have been responsible for fighting the non-government militias and armed rebels alongside and equally with men soldiers. Out of the 15 CRPF contingents deployed in Liberia by India under the UN, 9 contingents are ‘all-women’.

In Liberia these women soldiers have handled some of the most critical security assignments like jail and prison security, riot-control, patrol, robbery prevention and importantly managing the security of the President of Liberia.
