Annapurna Pariwar celebrates 25th foundation day

Annapurna Pariwar, a group of 5 NGOs working for the uplift of slum dwellers in Pune and Mumbai for the last 25 years celebrates its Founder’s day each year in the month of August. The function is a celebrated as a tribute to Late Dada Purao (Com. Narendra S.

After having participated in India’s freedom struggle, he realised that political freedom bereft of economic freedom, particularly for ordinary masses, is futile and meaningless. Therefore, he devoted his energies for organising Bank employees, textile workers in the city of Mumbai and in a short span earned respect as an accomplished Trade Union Leader and rose to prominence as a vanguard national leader of All India Bank Employees Association (AIBEA) a biggest and prominent Trade Union Organisation of middle class bank employees of the country.

Annapurna’s Dada Purao Research & Training Institute (DPR&TI) undertakes special studies, research projects and allied activities at local, regional and state level and works out models of micro finance and combines with other ancillary and other related activities to ensure social security and dignified life to the deprived sections of the society. Needless to say that towns and cities cannot grow and sustain themselves without resolving the problems of urban poverty.

Every year DPR&TI publishes a book based on its social interventions showing the impact of its various programs and the challenges ahead. This year, Annapurna shall be releasing a book on ‘Demonetisation — Experiences of the Poor’ written by Dr. Kanish Debnath. The book speaks of the experiences of Annapurna’s poor micro borrowers in the wake of the recent demonetisation imposed in the country.

 With this motto, Vishwakarma University has partnered with Tata Technologies to offer students a comprehensive program based on the pioneering concept of‘Industry on Campus’, Pune. The collaboration aims to create industry-ready engineering professionals to bridge the existing skillset gap and improve student employability.

 Vishwakarma University, Tata Technologies Ltd. and IBM are jointly committed to bringing ‘company to campus’ whereby the value addition to students will be immense. With content refinement in the curriculum students will ‘learn by doing’ as opposed to ‘learning by rote’. With mock up centers that simulate work place/factory, students will be able to move to their work place seamlessly.

 By having access to the ecosystem of both IBM and Tata Technologies students will be a cut above the rest when they enter the work place.

 A well-defined, comprehensive plan will be followed to ensure that Tata Technologies provides end-to-end support to Vishwakarma University during the entire academic cycle. Apart from investing in industrial mock centers and infrastructure, the company will also be offering content support, with instructors being chosen from a pool of over 8500 engineers at Tata Technologies. The company is hopeful of creating future-ready engineers by offering them a chance to learn and work at the same time in factory-like simulation centers.

 IBM is set to provide their expertise with collaborative work on curriculum design and courseware in the areas of Business Analytics and Cloud Computing for B. Tech Computer Science Engineering students of Vishwakarma University. This will result in students acquiring the much in-demand technical skills - helping them build a robust career in the industry.

The industry relevant technology courses wicll provide deep theoretical knowledge to the students, coupled with broad-based industry alignment, interaction, talent discoverability as well as excellence in their professional practice. Through this collaboration, we can positively impact the outcomes of the university students” said Amy Purdy, Director, IBM Technical Training, IBM-USA.

 Commenting on the partnership with Tata Technologies Mr. Bharat Agarwal, President of Vishwakarma University said, “Vishwakarma University is dedicated to the welfare of its students and this partnership is a step towards fulfilling the same. In a competitive job market, it is just not enough to have theoretical knowledge. We recognize the importance of imparting tactical skills to our students to make them employment-ready. With support from Tata Technologies, we hope to benefit our students and contribute to the pool of quality and productive engineers”.

 Commenting on the partnership with VishwakarmaUniversity, Mr.AnandBhade, President - Asia Pacific Sales & Global Head of Corporate Marketing, Tata Technologies, said, “Acquiring the right talent with the right skillset is critically important for achieving excellence.

The Realm of Zero- An expression of an artist’s emotions

A painting exhibition is set to be held at Mona Lisa Kalagram in lane 7 of Koregaon Park. The event will span across one week beginning 14th of April. During this week, art by 22 year old Painter and Musician, Maitreya Yeshwant is going to be portrayed.
 “I express myself on canvas using mixed media. The surfaces are large and dramatic emoting internal energies. After realizing the finite boundaries of science,I dropped out of IIT Kharagpur in my 4th year to pursue the infinite to try and express the inexpressible through my art and music,” said Yeshwant.
 “Theme of the exhibition is ‘Exploring the realm of Zero and the exhibition is set to display Modern Abstract Paintings,” informed Khushi Singh of Litmus International who has arranged the exhibition along with Sumit Singh.
 Speaking about his perspective on painting, Maitreya says that his art is a pure expression, without limiting with boundaries, forms or colors. “The moment I feel that I am at the peak of any emotion, be it love, happiness, anger, fear or anything, I stand in front of the canvas and I surrender,” he said.
 During the process of painting, he does not worry about the end 'product, he merely enjoys playing with colors. “After minutes, hours or at times days, there is a beautiful uplifting moment when time stops and the canvas literally speaks to me. The painting is done.This is my attempt to tap the inner glimpse or rather texture of any emotion. What would my love" or my "rage" look like when expressed on a canvas,” he further added.
 Sharing about his journey into the field of art Maitreya said, “An ancient story, not sure how much it is true, that Buddha said that he will come as an Avatar with the name Maitreya after 2500 years. My parents gave me this name, ‘‘Maitreya’’ and it never really clicked me until this moment in life where everything has mysteriously come to a crescendo. A moment of stillness, a sheer joy, a music with a soundless sound, a state of ecstasy which never happened to me before, along with the red passion it brought forth. Somewhere I couldn’t contain it and had to share it, express it in some way or the other. Being in IIT Kharagpur it was not possible I felt, I left my college for good without any regrets and came to Pune to start expressing this new found beatitude. I found expression by making music which was meant to induce a state of trance and slowly started my hand on the canvas. The joy that you get when you are not thinking, when you’re beyond the realms of the mind and are surprised by the divine pouring itself onto the canvas is inexpressible. The colours became a door for what is beyond the colours. This is Maitreya bringing the taste of Zen, the inner light, through colors,” he said.

Oerlikon blazers to take their total investment to 410 crores in Indian tool coating market

Balzers, Liechtenstein, 25 March 2017 – At its site in Pune, Oerlikon Balzers is continuing to invest in its business in India with plant renovations and facilities featuring the latest generation of tool coating technology. This expansion of the facilities has been planned with an additional focus on sustainability and energy efficiency.
 Oerlikon Balzers commissioned the plant in Pune in 1994, its first site in India. Over the years, demand has grown for its high-end coatings and pre/post-treatment processing. At the same time, however, Oerlikon Balzers has introduced a range of innovations to the market. To meet the growing demands of the Indian market, production capacity is being increased using the latest generation of coating systems. The incorporated Customer Solutions Centre develops specialized solutions for the South East Asia area and tests coatings for the Indian and global market. 
 The company has invested Rs 260 Crores in its Pune and other Indian units in the past five years. Now they are envisaging investing around 150 crores in time to come. In addition, there are two centers to be started, one in North and one in West Zone. 
 Oerlikon Balzers is demonstrating its commitment to sustainability by equipping the coating centre with solar panels, which generate enough “green” electricity for all the offices and a considerable amount of the production area. 
 This significant investment in the future and in the Indian market allows Oerlikon Balzers to serve its customers from various industries – primarily tool manufacturers, but also businesses in the aviation, oil and gas, medical, textile and machining industries – more quickly and efficiently and to provide them with a greater range of products. “The high-output INNOVENTA mega coating system we have commissioned in Pune allows us to offer our customers new coatings for large forming tools, as well as giving us additional capacity for machining tools – and all this with significantly reduced delivery times”, says Pravin Shirse, General Manager of Oerlikon Balzers India. 
 In Pune, this expansion means that the innovative BALIQ generation of coatings is now available, which is based on the S3p (Scalable Pulsed Power Plasma) technology developed by Oerlikon Balzers. This technology combines the advantages of the sputtering and arc evaporation coating processes to produce coatings with extreme wear resistance and ultra-high smoothness. Since being introduced in 2013, the BALIQ family of coatings has been successively expanded to meet the demands of particular applications. 
 Marc Desrayaud, Head of Oerlikon Balzers Industrial Solutions, explained in his speech at the opening ceremony: “We are not just investing in our coating centres in India to meet the demands of the market. We are also well aware of our social responsibilities, and this represents our active contribution to environmental and industrial safety.” In total, Oerlikon Balzers operates eight customer centres on the Indian subcontinent (worldwide it has over 100), meaning it is closer to its customers than any other supplier.
 On the morning of the same day, Desrayaud officially opened a new vocational training centre in Salumbre, around 30 km from Pune. Oerlikon Balzers has participated in the set-up of this centre as a further social and technological investment into the Indian market, and as a commitment after 23 years of common history. In his speech at the opening ceremony he made reference to the long tradition of vocational training at Oerlikon Balzers, which began with its founding in 1946 in Balzers itself and has now produced more than 1,400 fully trained specialists. To support the skill for the youngsters in India in line with the government programs Oerlikon Balzers India together with Jnana Probodhini Prashala has initiated this vocational training centre to develop the future generation. The technology is developing in leaps and bounds, and the skills developed through this vocational training centre will push the boundaries of technology and help the students to take on new challenges. These youngsters will be crucial in shaping the future of the Indian industry by bringing their know how and engagement after successfully completing the course.

I 'Aspire' to be best

When she looks back in the past, she can never forget the date January 24 2004. It was the day when Varsha Marathe now founder and director started Aspire Communications and Strategies Pvt ltd – a well-known Pune based PR agency. For her, the firm is like her baby which she has been raising through all the ups and downs of life. She believes in one thing firmly, that all women should step out even if it is for a few hours in the day. This is the only way one grows. 
“Women are better at multi-tasking than men. It is mainly the reason why many women are able to juggle both- household as well as professional responsibilities together,” she said. She herself is a mother of two yet recalls fondly how back in the year 2004 she started this agency, even when her son Rugved-her first born was merely 3 months old. 
“I am not someone who can sit at home. Therefore I started my office from a small room in Pune. As my work started getting appreciated in the city, I got more clients and my agency started growing," she informs. 
 Being the first entrepreneur in her family, Varsha preferred to take on risks head-on. Even now, with the changing dynamics of media she never shied away from expansion. Digital PR is one such venture which she has taken up despite the fact that it is comparatively new field. She feels she could do this only because of the great support which she has received from her family -especially her husband Ameet Marathe. 
 Ameet Marathe who is now one of the directors in the agency has been the cardinal in the expansion of the agency to include digital PR. “He was quite busy in his job with almost 20 days of travelling in one month. Finally in the year 2011 he gave it up to join Aspire full time. It is because of his expertise that we are able to offer services in digital social media besides traditional PR, Celebrity Management and CSR PR," informed Varsha. Her clientele includes people from all verticals of business right from healthcare, hospitality to various corporates. In fact, her work assignments have even taken her out of the country. 
 “All thanks to the support from my team that we have been able to establish a great network Pan India,” states Varsha. Her achievements do not end here; she has also been a recipient of Salam Pune Award amongst other big achievements. All she knows throughout is that she 'Aspires' to be the best.

India’s First Ever Robotic Knee Replacement Surgery
Performed at Lokmanya Hospitals, Pune!!!

The first ever Robotic assisted unicondylar knee replacement surgery in India was successfully performed at Lokmanya Hospitals, Pune, using Blue Belt Technologies’ Navio Robotic System, a proven technology with more than 65 installations in the US.
 “This is a state of art technology which enables the surgeon to replace only the damaged part of the knee to absolute perfection, saving all the other normal structures of the joint, thus preventing the need of total joint replacement” said Dr Narendra Vaidya, Managing Director and Chief Joint Replacement Surgeon, Lokmanya Group of Hospitals, Pune
 Osteoarthritic degeneration and subsequent knee pain in elderly is becoming a huge burden in the society. Knee pain is the commonest cause for visit of the patient to a clinic. Knee osteoarthritis not only causes pain and disability, but also takes a huge toll on the entire family and the society at large.
 People in India are hugely tolerant to pain. They approach the doctor only in later stages when their mobility and independent life gets compromised due to severe pain and deformity. In contrast to this, people in Western Nations are hugely concerned with their quality of life and opt for such technology-driven less invasive and early recovery procedures to maintain their high-end and active lifestyle.  Beyond certain stage (stage II), medicines, physiotherapy and other arthroscopic interventions are not useful in the treatment of arthritis and such patients require total knee replacement as a definitive treatment. Total Knee Replacement is a time tested and proven method to treat terminal arthritis but involves prolonged hospitalization and physiotherapy. However, Robotic assisted surgery offers the patient a huge advantage of immediate recovery, same or next day discharge and minimal blood loss. It is extremely satisfying for the patients since it preserves all the natural structures of the joint. Almost 30% - 35% patients who have been advised Total Knee Replacement can be treated with this modality successfully.
 This technology is suitable for relatively younger patients with an active way of life pursuing sports and lifestyle activities like golfing, tennis, trekking, cycling, swimming, dynamic work-life etc. Elderly patients who have higher risk of a very major procedure also can be benefited with this minimal access robotic technology.
 Robotic Arm assisted knee surgery brings in almost 100% precision in prosthesis placement, which is of paramount importance in longevity (life) of the prosthesis. Also patients treated with this technology can get full movement, including sitting cross legged and squatting and have a very natural feel of the knee joint, as all the ligaments are preserved.
 Lokmanya, the largest Orthopedic focused chain of hospitals in Western India, being one of the leader in Joint Replacement Surgery, has launched this technology for the first time in India for the benefit of thousands of arthritic patients.
 Salient Features of Robotic Assisted Knee Replacement 
1. Painless Surgery 
2. Less Hospital Stay 
3. Rapid Recovery 
4. Minimal Blood Loss 
5. Preserves Ligaments 
6. Preserves Bones & Knee Caps
 Dr. Narendra Vaidya, Managing Director & Chief Joint Replacement Surgeon, Lokmanya Hospitals, said “It is a proud moment for us to launch robotic assisted knee replacement at Lokmanya hospitals since we have always been concerned for patient’s mobility and their quality of Life”
 He further added, “The treatment process with Robotics is simplified and at the end cost effective to the patient. It will set a new benchmark in near future, and we are proud of being the initiators for this technology in India. Stress free and patient oriented medical practice has been our preface for launching robotics in India”

Annapurna Pariwar a second family to its Members

Annapurna Pariwar made new schemes in their credit society for giving more better and wealthy life to their members. 
·During 2017, Annapurna Group gave micro loans of around Rs.150 crores to the poor women and collected savings to the tune of Rs. 40 crores. 
 Annapurna group gives loans without any collateral or security and yet the repayment rate is 100%. The repayment was not adversely affected even during the difficult period of recent demonetization.

Annapurna Pariwar is a group of 5 Developmental Organizations working in Pune and Mumbai with an aim of empowering poor women and their families in terms of finance, education, health and child development. At the press conference Dr. Medha Purao-Samant, Founder Chairperson of Annapurna mentioned that “beginning next year Annapurna will be moving towards cashless transactions with members as their bank accounts have now been opened with great efforts. Loans ranging from Rs.30,000 to Rs.2 lakhs will be given without any collateral. Health insurance claims benefit shall range from Rs.20,000 to Rs.35,000. She also appealed to them to enroll themselves in the Adharpurna scheme brought to them by Annapurna and to take loans only if necessary”.

The financial year 2017-18 was a turbulent year due to two major decisions of the Government of India –One –Demonetisation & the other – Implementation of GST. The Microfinance industry which caters to the credit needs of the poor in our country suffered a major blow during 2017-18. The NPA of the Banking sector has also grown in the past few years. But the NPA of Micro Finance industry which was under 2% consistently for last 5 years rose to 9% at the national level & 20% at the Maharashtra State level. In such a scenario, Annapurna Pariwar has done extremely well. Annapurna Pariwar not only provides credit facilities without any collateral security / guarantee to the poor but provides a comprehensive financial package of credit, savings, Health & Life & Family insurance & old-age savings and also provides non-financial services like Day Care Centers for children & client education, Financial Literacy Training etc. Annapurna Pariwar disbursed Rs.150 crores in the year 2017-18 to its members, who are also the shareholders of AMCCSL. The NPA (PAR) is under control at 1% which is much lower than the Microfinance Industry. Annapurna Pariwar collected voluntary savings from its members - the amount rose from Rs.33 crores to Rs.40 crores in 2017-18. Annapurna Pariwar disbursed Health Claims for the sickness of its members & their family members to the tune of Rs.91 lakhs in 2017-18. This is a unique facility which no other Micro finance industry offers. Micro Insurance in India is still not reaching out the poor & needy families suffering from health problems. Annapurna Pariwar disbursed to the members Death claims & their family members to the tune of Rs.35 lakhs (LMF + FMF) in 2017-18. With all the financial services Annapurna Pariwar has sailed through the rough waters in the past year. In the year 2018-19 Annapurna Pariwar plans to extend a better package of credit, saving, Health & Life insurance. The loan size will be higher with a reduced interest rate. The Health insurance amount will be much higher than the previous years. Annapurna Pariwar made new schemes in their credit society for giving more better and wealthy life to their members. They increased loan amount and also giving higher ROI on FD’s. We look forward to servicing our members who are poor self-employed women & thus achieve our goal of Empowerment of Poor Women by upholding our sustainable yet not profit oriented model of Comprehensive Development.

Next Level Endoscopic spine Surgery performed in Pune for First time in Maharashtra

Biportal Endoscopy performed in Saishree Hospital

The next generation of Endoscopic spine surgery (Biportal Endoscopy) is here, expanding the indications of traditional Endoscopy and reducing the co-morbidities associated with open spine surgery.

Mr Ashok Bhor, an ordinance factory worker, was suffering from left lower limb pain since last two months; he was diagnosed on his MRI scan findings. The surgery was performed on August 10, 2017 and he was discharged on 14 August. He had a lumbo-sacral canal stenosis with right lower limb pain underwent Biportal endoscopic stenosis decompression surgery at Saishree hospital. Patient had immediate pain relief and was successfully discharged walking out of the hospital on 3rd post-operative day.”

Biportal Endoscopy involves use of 2 separate channels, Scopic port (4mm) and Working port (1.5mm) with continuous water flow. This causes less bleeding giving the surgeon clear & magnified surgical view, precise decompression, reducing the chances of intra-operative nerve damage and eliminating the chances of post-operative blood transfusion. Also chances of surgical site infection are significantly lesser than open surgery. There is significant reduction in pain at the operative site so patient can be mobilized earlier, as early as 2 to 3 hours after coming out of anesthesia. Patient is allowed to use commode chair on the following day reducing dependence. The total hospitalization period is typically 2 to 3 days and patient can walk home after that. Some physical restrictions need to be followed along with physiotherapy for 4 weeks post-op but the return to normal daily activities is much faster.

Pune’s Well Known spine surgeon Dr. Pradyumna Pai Raiturkar and Dr.Kean Deshphande performed this surgery

Dr. Pradyumna Pai Raiturkar said, “This is a revolutionary procedure in terms of technical advancement but is more acceptable than traditional endoscopy as the approach familiar anatomy and is cost effective as well.”

Dr.Ketan Deshpade added further, “This is the first ever case of Biportal Endoscopic Decompression performed in Maharashtra. As per the operating surgeons this technique has a very promising future and with the development of more advanced instruments will cover even more indications in spinal pathologies.”

Some Unique benefits of this technique to patient:

Cost-effectiveness: since majority of the instruments used in this procedure are same as traditional surgery, they are readily available with all spine surgeons.

Increased spectrum: Almost all pathologies in Lumbar spine can be treated using this method.

Advantages to the patient: Less pain post-operatively, early mobilization, less blood loss (avoiding blood transfusion), lesser hospitalization, and more cosmetic.

Future trends: UBE is well tested modality accepted in various international publications, but developments are still on to expand the scope of the procedure to include multilevel pathologies.

About UNILATERAL BIPORTAL ENDOSCOPY

Single portal (working channel) endoscopy is an established modality of minimally invasive spine surgery for lumbar and radiculopathy (slip disc) but unfortunately the spectrum of diseases treated under this technique are limited. Also this technique has a very steep learning curve and requires high end instruments. With a view to overcome these limitations UBE technique is developed.

The skin incision is significantly smaller than traditional surgery but the risk of neuronal injury is lesser cause. Magnification, better visualization, under water use of Cautery leading to heat dispersion.

The need for postoperative blood transfusion is not only dependent on intra-operative blood loss but also on handling of para-spinal muscle (operative trauma), post op drain, patients pre-op Hb, patient on anti-platelet medications etc. If these factors are taken into consideration the chances of needing a blood transfusion are lesser with endoscopy.

Double treat for art lovers- SPort +ART (SPART) a unique exhibition set to be inaugurated by legendary Australian Cricketer Brett Lee.

Despite India exporting 129.99 billion worth of handicrafts, Indians finds it difficult to accept art as a career choice. 
 Handicrafts of India are highly placed in overseas market. It is due to this demand that India exported around Rs.129.99 billion worth handicrafts in the year 2016-17 which has increased by 18 percent from Rs 109.89 billion in the year 2015-16. The industry therefore is one of the highest contributors to the country’s GDP. Despite this fact, artists in the country are not given their due, and at times, even forced to live in poverty. It is to correct this imbalance and give an impetus to such artists, a mega exhibition event called as SPART (SPort+ART) has been organized in Pune on April 29th 2017.
 The event is set to be inaugurated by Legendary Australian cricketer Brett Lee who will be appearing for any event for the first time in India. The exhibition is open to all from 9 am to 6pm and will be held at Collonade Hall, Residency club Pune. The inauguration and talk show by Brett Lee followed by lunch buffet will happen between 11am to 2 pm. However the talk show would be a private event for 220 people with a ticket charge for Rs 3000/-
 “Brett Lee himself is an artist at heart. The common point between me and him is that his work was mainly in Australia but has strong ties to India through his art as well as his social cause of training clinical music therapists and introducing this therapy as an integral tool in healing the physical, mental and emotional wounds of marginalized children through his Foundation called Mewsic. I on the other hand started my enterprise in Australia and am now giving a platform to Indian artists, so they can portray and sell their art without having to spare selling commission. This is the reason why he connected to the cause and was ready to inaugurate the event,” informed Akshaya Borkar, founder of The Art and Craft Gallery who is hosting this event.
 Sharing his views on the condition of artists in India, Debabrata Pal who is a painter and works with an automotive designing company said, “ In India, artists are not given their due. Only some certain identified professions are considered to be noble and children are not encouraged to take up art. The event would help in changing this psyche.” Pal believes it is against this backdrop, the Gallery has provided him great support. “I practice Chromotherapy (science of using colors to adjust body vibrations to frequencies that result in health and harmony) . Through this platform, my art reaches the right people and in future when I start becoming successful, I will quit my job to concentrate on art,” he said.
 Anjali Hugay who studied electronic engineering and now has her own studio also echoed similar sentiments. “ Certain professions are pushed forth for people to follow as they are said to be the ones with guaranteed source of income. This is mainly because in India, people still think twice before spending fairly large amounts on paintings which is not the case in western countries. Such an initiative will definitely help in changing people’s perspective towards art.” Anjali makes landscapes and figurative art in oil paints.

It felt really good to be participating in the program,” informed Vrushali Moghe, a 66 year old participant who has undergone replacement surgery for both her knees. Sheela Shantaram Bhondale a 71 year participant who has undergone total knee replacement for both her knees also had similar things to share. “ My knees after total replacement surgery have never been an obstacle in any kind of day to day movements.

Walk Continues After the Complete Hip Replacement at the Age Of 100

First time successfully operated in India at SaiShree Hospital for Special Surgery In October this year, Smt. Chirputkar suffered a fracture on her hip bone after a fall at home. The fracture was treated with a surgery, inserting a rod and a screw. Unfortunately, the screw had changed position and lodged itself in her hip joint, causing her severe pain. She was finally admitted to SaiShree Hospital in Aundh, Pune and underwent a surgery last Saturday. 
 Chirputkar has no diseases like hypertension or diabetes and she is absolutely fit. She is a disciplined woman, taking care of her nutrition and taking proper medication. This is first time she has been hospitalized. 
 Adkar added while elaborating on her condition before the surgery, “Smt. Shalini Chirputkar had her first total hip replacement surgery in Mumbai; the screw had displaced and lodged itself in the hip joint. There were even broken parts of it remaining there, which were not obvious on the X-Ray. Not only this, the dislodged screw had caused a defect in the bone on the cup side of the joint. We had to conduct a bone graft and then fit the cup. The stem fitting in the cup had to be longer than normal since it had to cross down from the part of the bone where the screw was fitted, so that there were no weak sections in her femur bone.
” Dr Trupti Pare, anesthesiologist on the case, express that, “Smt. Chirputkar was not put on general anesthesia considering her age; the surgery was performed under regional anesthesia.” 
Shalini Chirputkar said, “I am still young at heart and have a lot of energy. I have spent my life very well. Even after the surgery, I should be able to sit and move around soon, so I can do my own things.” Chirputkar had participated in the Mumbai Marathon for three consecutive years (2006-2008) until her family urged her to stop. She takes the feat lightly on her shoulders, saying, “I still don’t know how I did it, but I have always been regular with my walking. For the past 50 years, I have been going for morning walk daily. But after 80, I was advised by the doctors not to climb up. From then on, I started going up by bus and reduced walking. 
 She has expressed her gratitude towards the SaiShree Hospital team and wished she could resume her daily routine soon.
