Psychworks clinic in collaboration with JCI Nagpur Feme and PG Department of Human Development of LAD College recently organized a block and screen printing workshop to empower women inmates of Regional Mental Hospital of Nagpur.
During the workshop, the patients were taught block and screen Printing by Dr Harsha Jharia (Coordinator, PG courses in Fashion Design, LAD College) and students of PG dept of Human development of LAD College. With the help of the workshop, the female patients made different articles by block and screen printing on cards, dupattas, table cloths and bed sheets.
Alvira Diwan, who’s a clinical psychologist and has worked with the patients and has organized several events for their recreation and rehabilitation, said, Due to their illness the patients lack skills, which they can gain by training. Thus planning a workshop like this one was an easy decision for me because I am aware of the calibre they have. I’m happy that the patients participated in the workshop with immense enthusiasm for learning something new.”
The staff of the hospital including the caretakers, nurses, occupational therapists and psychiatrists were also present during the workshop. Medical Superintendent Dr Madhuri Thorat and Deputy Superintendent Dr Praveen Navkhare willingly approved of the noble cause. JCI members along with the President Uzma Kausar and immediate past president Sana Ganiya Khan also participated in the event.

Shashi Tharoor is capable of bringing Congress back in power, says Congress leader Ashish Deshmukh
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.
Nagpur citizens to revel The Raaas Garba next year!
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!”
