Students of Swaroopa Adhyayana Kendra to Attempt Entry in Limca Book of Records

As many as 26 children of Swaroopa Adhyayana Kendra will be taking part in a programme being held on December 15 at Bangalore, where they will be presenting before the Limca team the profoundness of their memory power.

The programme will be attended by chief minister D V Sadananda Gowda and stalwarts like Chandrashekhara Kambara, Anantamurthy, and Prof G Venkatasubbaiah. Gopadkar, director of Swaroopa, said that the dignitaries will watch a programme on alternative methods of teaching to be presented by the centre on this occasion.

Gopadkar was addressing a press conference held after a demonstration of the talents of his students held at the Kendra in Kodialbail in the city on Wednesday November 2.

Gopadkar strongly believes in releasing the children from the chains of traditional methods of education. He says that the traits of the children will blossom tremendously if they are allowed to realise their potentials and enjoy their education process.

As a prelude to the said initiative, a programme, ‘Guinness World Records – Fascinating Memory Power’ will be presented at Town  Hall here at 5 pm on November 7.On this occasion, website of Swaroopa, and CD will be released, he added.

The centre uses songs from popular movies to teach theorems and other things to students, and sign language to memorise numbers. Terming the present system of education as ‘Bonsai Education’, Gopadkar said that the talents of students are confined to six subjects in this method. He said that the personality of students can expand by leaps and bounds if they given freedom from books. He felt that imposing of education on the minds of children is the gravest offence happening in the country, and scoffed at the education system that is meant to earn certificates.

He said that his study centre takes into account the artistic nature, memory power, emotional strength, etc of the students while teaching them, and that guidance is provided to the students on singing and speaking. “The main aim of the centre is to make the children realize that they learn things for themselves,” he explained.

HCG forms set Limca Book of Record - Largest human awareness ribbon for breast cancer

HCG forms set Limca Book of Record - Largest human awareness ribbon for breast cancer.

Bangaloreans from all walks of life came together to create awareness about breast cancer here on Sunday. The event was organised by HealthCare Global Enterprises Ltd. (HCG) to commemorate the Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is observed in October every year.

As many as 6,583 people formed the largest pink ribbon, symbolising breast cancer awareness, at the Sullivan Police Grounds here. Donning pink t-shirts, holding pink umbrellas and wearing pink head-gears, the participants that included cancer survivors, cancer patients, care givers, nurses, corporate workers and students, stood for 10 minutes in the shape of a ribbon.

Said to be the largest human awareness ribbon, the attempt will be sent to the Guinness Book of World Records for adjudication. The current record for the largest human awareness ribbon is held by Saudi Arabia. Organisers claimed that the record will be featured in the 2013 edition of Limca Book of Records.

B.S. Ajaikumar, chairman of HCG, said that the event was organised to spread awareness about breast cancer.

“The fear of cancer is worse than the disease itself. In India, there is lack of awareness on health and people do not undergo regular preventive health check-up. Preventive check-up is important for early diagnosis of cancer. We have issued 6,000 mammography coupons free to the participants, which will be the first step in eradicating the social stigma associated with the word ‘cancer',” he said.

Gopinath K.S., surgical oncologist, who participated in the event, said that such initiatives were important. “Most patients come for consultation only after the disease has reached an advanced stage. There is no better way to educate people that cancer is curable in its early stages. The phobia of cancer is worse than the disease itself,” he said.
