VIZAG DEVELOPMENT COUNCIL REQUESTED FOR EXCLUSIVE CIVILIAN AIRPORT Vizag Development Council has urged the State government to make Visakhapatnam international airport an exclusive civilian airport by acquiring land at the disposal of the Navy to handle 40 million passengers by 2050.VDC vice-president O. Naresh Kumar told that the city airport, at present, has only 350 acres for civilian airport and the remaining of the 1,250 acres was under control of the Navy.By developing a world class terminal on line of the Terminal 5 of Changi Airport in Singapore, the authorities could cater to the needs of the projected passenger count for 2050 and avoid troubling passengers to go to Bhogapuram, where an international airport is proposed, to catch a flight, he observed."A to and fro journey to Bhogapuram will add an additional burden of Rs. 2,000 on passengers for engaging a cab," he pointed out and strongly favoured the demand for bring the city airport under the purview of the Ministry of Civil Aviation for further development.With flights to Dubai, Bangkok, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and other international destinations, the airport is now handling 2.5 million passengers per annum.Mr. Naresh Kumar said the proposed airport at Bhogapuram would be 40 km away from the city and reaching there on the highway would take at least an hour. "Hence, the Navy should be convinced to make use of the runway at Bhogapuram to meet its requirement. Bhogapuram is also close to INS Kalinga,"
WORKSHOP ON BASIC LIFE SUPPORT HELD ANDHRA AT MEDICAL COLLEGE(AMC) The first workshop on Basic Life Support (BLS) training, based on guidelines issued by the Indian Society of Anaesthesiologists, was conducted at Andhra Medical College.The aim of the workshop was to train teachers for imparting knowledge and hands on training to medical students, medical and paramedical staff as well as the public.The Indian Society of Anaesthesiologists, under the banner of ‘Rescucitation Council of India’, has come out with guidelines for saving lives during emergencies.The workshop was inaugurated by Dr. C.V. Rao, Vice-Chancellor of Dr. N.T.R. University of Health Sciences.Dr. P.V. Sudhakar, principal, Andhra Medical College, Dr. S.S.C. Chakra Rao from Indian Society of Anaesthesiologists, Dr. Rakesh Garg from AIIMS, New Delhi and Dr. S.V. Lakshmi Narayana from RMC Kakinada, spoke.Parental Alienation Syndrome is a form of emotional abuse of children. It''s the psychological manipulation of a child by a parent, whose goal is to sever the bond between the other parent and the child - before, during, or after separation.Such children often suffer from depression, loss of trust and confidence. They may also become rebellious, aggressive and develop suicidal tendencies. Other consequences like poor concentration in studies and drug abuse may also arise. This is not only dangerous for child''s future but also to the society.As the apex body for the rights of children, the NCPCR must educate all the courts and government bodies dealing with matrimonial disputes in which children are involved. Unfortunately, the NCPCR takes up only specific cases with the excuse of matters being in the family courts.This results in severe Parental Alienation Syndrome on children who are completely brainwashed. Many people who have faced such cases are horrified to the manner in which the children are mentally and sometimes even physically harmed by the custodial parents and their families.On the occasion of Father''s Day, several groups of fathers from multiple cities - Visakhapatnam, Hyderabad, Pune and Bengaluru have done awareness rallies to highlight the challenges faced by children who have been separated from their loving parent.The non-custodial parents'' associations across India are making an honest effort to spread awareness to the community, law makers and judiciary with the help of media regarding the challenges faced by children who go through silent suffering and abuse.On the occasion of Father''s Day, we have conducted a rally from Mahatma Gandhi Statue to VMRDA Central Park to bring awareness on Parental Alienation Syndrome. This is a humble appeal to take up this matter and bring it to the notice of the society for the welfare of our children.
AWARENESS RALLY ON FATHERS DAY Every child cannot celebrate Father''s Day as some of them are caught in matrimonial disputes of their parents. Often, such children are deprived of their biological rights to meet the non-custodial parent. They were unable to receive love, care and protection of their fathers.With great pain in the hearts and severe disappointments on every way, the fathers do not get to meet their own biological children due to the greed of the various people which further victimizes both - the non-custodial parents and the children.India, the land of various cultural ethoses and being part of the South Asian countries, always had traditional family values and morals in which everyone was safe and sound. Unfortunately, the moral values have been polluted in the recent decades. Western concepts of ''using marriage as a commercial commodity'' has resulted in a huge number of divorce cases being filed in the various family courts, primarily by the women on commercial grounds, as they are getting free legal aid and state support to destroy their own families.It is sad that the state supports rights of such well empowered working women to break down their own families on commercial grounds. Such cases typically come with pure commercial and blackmail tactics by some women - "pay up so much or we will file further cases".In most matrimonial disputes, it is the alienated parent as well as the alienated child who suffers a lot. Numerous applications were sent by the non-custodial parents to the Chairperson and members of the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR).Numerous family disputes in courts are regularly alienating the children. Approximately 1-1.5 lakh children are facing issues due to the Parental Alienation Syndrome. The established institutional mechanism makes it even worse for these children.
