There’s no age to learn and there’s certainly no age to fulfill a dream! A brilliant example of this is 80-year-old Dr Jay Narayan Jayswal, who recently completed his three-month Post Graduate Diploma course in Oncology from Nagpur’s National Cancer Institute in Jamtha. By completing the course, Dr Jayswal, who has been practicing since last 55 years Adilabad in Telangana, has fulfilled a dream, which he nurtured for more than 58 years!

Speaking exclusively to Nation Next, Dr Jaiswal says, I have always been fond of learning. I was born in Dolamba village in Yavatmal district. There was not even a primary school in our village at that time. My father, who was a farmer, would teach me alphabets. My will to learn took me 100 kms away from my village to a school at Patanbori. Over the years, in spite of great financial difficulties, I passed with flying colours throughout my school education and in 1957, I passed my 11th board exams (that time 11th board exams were equivalent to 10th board exams of today) in first division from Government High School in Yavatmal.

Dr Jayswal adds, In 1948, there was only one dispensary in my village, which was managed by a single doctor called Dr NG Sheikh. I was really impressed with the doctor’s attire and personality and decided to become a doctor myself. After 11th, I enrolled myself in VMV College in Amravati (Maharashtra) for Inter Science to qualify for MBBS. I did not have enough money to study or stay in a hostel and that forced me to discontinue and enroll myself for a course in Diploma in Medicine at Robertson Medical School at Mayo Hospital in Nagpur.

Dr Jayswal says, Even though I got a diploma in medicine, my dream was always to pursue a post graduate course in medicine. But because of financial constraints, I could not do it. I shifted to a village near Adilabad to start my own private practice. I thought I will gather money and then enroll for the post graduate course . But I got so much success in my practice that I got no time to purse the PG course and the dream got lost somewhere.

Dr Jayswals 58-year-old dream is what made him pursue a PG Diploma course in Oncology from National Cancer Institute in Nagpur. He says, Even though I have been practicing for more than 55 years, the dream of pursuing a post graduate course always haunted me. I always felt a void. One day, I looked at an advertisement for the PG Diploma course in Oncology at National Cancer Institute in Nagpur and I decided to go for it. I’m really happy to have completed the course.

Speaking to Nation Next, Dr Jayswal’s daughter, Mamta Jaiswal, who stays in Nagpur says, I’m on the top of the world and really proud of my father. Hes an inspiration! He has given a very important message to all of us: It’s never too late to follow your dreams! Age is just a number!

Dr Jay Narayan Jayswal will receive his diploma soon at the National Cancer Institutes convocation ceremony, which will be held soon.

Former MLA and Member of Parliamentary Board, MPCC Dr Ashish Deshmukh speaking about the nomination filed by Congress MP Shashi Tharoor for the post of Congress President on Friday, said, “Dr Shashi Tharoor is a popular Congress MP who has done remarkable work for the nation at the international level. It’s very welcoming thing that the election of Congress President is being done in a democratic manner. This is an important step for decentralisation in the party and the future of Congress is bright. Soniaji and Rahulji Gandhi contributed a lot to strengthen the party.”

Congress leader Deshmukh added, “This is an important step taken by the Congress elites for the elections in a democratic manner so that the party can take a higher flight. Dr Shashi Tharoor has cordial relations with everyone in the party; he has the ability to give a new direction to the party. I believe that he will be able to handle the responsibility of bringing the Congress to power in the country by taking the party forward with new strength. If he seriously deals with issues like unemployment, industry, agriculture, inflation then Congress will have fruitful days. By doing transparent politics, he will definitely convey the thought of Congress to the people at the grassroots level. If you want a rejuvenated, bigger and dynamic Congress party, Dr. Shashi Tharoor is the right candidate. He has the open support of Congress delegates in 12 states and is getting the support of Congress leaders and activists from all over India. He will be elected for sure.”

Deshmukh informed that Tharoor would be visiting Nagpur on October 1 and 2 to hear out all thoughts of Congress delegates.

The Raaas (2018)

Since The Raaas enchanted and enthralled Nagpur with its quality garba in its first year in 2018, the demand for encore has been reverberating the city. To cater to the huge public demand, the organisers of the king of garbas have decided to continue The Raaas next year on. Like its first year, The Raaas Garba will be presented to Nagpur in association with Nation Next in 2023. Mahesh Kukreja, the key organiser said, “Because of some reasons, we, earlier, thought of giving the event a break.”

He added, “Then COVID-19 struck the world. Now we plan to continue it from next year onwards. While I express my gratitude to Nagpurians to make the event a huge hit, I request the city’s garba revellers to not get fooled as a few garbas are falsely claiming to be The Raaas. We’ll be back next year for sure!”
