Dr Abdul Rehman Vanoo Helps Daily Workers In Bollywood With Necessities...

डॉ अब्दुल रहमान वनू बॉलीवुड के दैनिक श्रमिकों को ज़रूरी चीज़ों के साथ मदद कर रहे हैं

डॉ अब्दुल रहमान वनू,  दादासाहेब फाल्के फिल्म फाउंडेशन के महासचिव, के रूप में चुने गए हैं। वह ईमानदारी, कड़ी मेहनत और उत्कृष्टता के व्यक्ति हैं। हिंदी फिल्म उद्योग के तकनीशियनों के उत्थान के लिए उनके पास हमेशा एक नजरिया था और उन्होंने उस दिशा में बड़े प्रयास किए हैं।

हम सभी जानते हैं कि फिल्म जगत में दैनिक वेतन भोगी कर्मचारियों, विशेष रूप से तकनीशियनों के लिए तालाबंदी और महामारी बहुत कठिन साबित हुई है। मुंबई के बाहरी इलाकों जैसे विरार और पालघर में भी इस अवधि के दौरान जरूरतमंदों को दैनिक आवश्यक सामान और धन भेजने के लिए डॉ वनू जिम्मेदार थे। उन्होंने कहा, “फिल्म इंडस्ट्री सिर्फ अभिनेताओं, निर्माताओं, लेखकों और निर्देशकों से नहीं भरी है। हालांकि ज्यादातर पुरस्कार समारोह में स्पॉटलाइट हमेशा उन पर रहती है, हमें लगता है कि तकनीशियन जैसे स्पॉटबॉय, कैमरामैन और लाखों लोग शामिल हैं जो दैनिक मजदूरी के लिए सेट पर काम करते हैं। और एक फिल्म और  फाइनल प्रोडक्ट बनाने में भी योगदान दे रहे हैं। इसलिए, हमने यह सुनिश्चित किया कि वे इस अवधि के दौरान पीड़ित न हों। हमने मुंबई के विभिन्न हिस्सों में दैनिक आवश्यक वस्तुओं की आपूर्ति की। ”

डॉ वनू ने मुंबई पुलिस की मदद भी की है और लॉकडाउन के दौरान उन्हें जरूरी सामान मुहैया कराया है। मुंबई पुलिस ने कलिना, सांताक्रूज़ में एक कवारांटेन सेंटर स्थापित किया था, यहां डॉ वनू ने उन्हें कई सेवाएं प्रदान करने में मदद प्रदान की। डॉ वनू के संगठन द्वारा बोरीवली, धारावी और कई अन्य क्षेत्रों में दैनिक आवश्यक चीजें उपलब्ध कराई गई हैं। उन्होंने कहा, “कई लोगों ने अपनी नौकरी खो दी और हमने उन्हें काम और भोजन देने का फैसला किया। और यह केवल मुंबई तक ही सीमित नहीं था। हमने ये सुविधाएं और दैनिक आवश्यक चीज़ें दिल्ली, पुणे और भारत के कई अन्य शहरों में प्रदान कीं। हमने इस पर शोध भी किया कि लॉकडाउन के दौरान लोग मानसिक स्वास्थ्य से कैसे निपटते हैं। और इसके अलावा, हम स्वास्थ्य सुविधाओं को मेंटेन रखना और दैनिक वेतन भोगी कर्मचारियों को रोजगार देना भी जारी रखते हैं। सरकार भी हमें अच्छा समर्थन दे रही है।

दादासाहेब फाउंडेशन के दैनिक वेतन भोगी कर्मचारी भी बुरी तरह प्रभावित हुए। डॉ वनू ने कहा, “हमने इन श्रमिकों के पते की एक विशाल सूची तय्यार की और  पूरे स्टाफ को भोजन, दैनिक आवश्यक वस्तुएं, किराने का सामान और चिकित्सा सहायता प्रदान की। नालासोपारा, मीरा रोड और कई अन्य क्षेत्रों में, हमने दैनिक आवश्यक सेवाओं का परिवहन किया। चूंकि हम मुंबई पुलिस के साथ काम कर रहे थे, हमारे पास विभिन्न क्षेत्रों की यात्रा करने के लिए एक पास था और इसलिए, पुलिस विभाग को बहुत धन्यवाद, क्योंकि हम दूसरों की मदद करने में इस पास का उपयोग कर सकते हैं। ”

 

इसके अलावा, डॉ वनू इन तकनीशियनों के कौशल के उत्थान की दिशा में भी काम कर रहे हैं। उन्होंने कहा, “इन श्रमिकों में से अधिकांश अपनी दैनिक रोटी कमाने के लिए शहर में आए हैं। वे शिक्षित नहीं हैं। इसलिए, हम उन्हें आगे की पढ़ाई करने और उन्हें आत्मनिर्भर बनाने के लिए प्रेरित करते हैं। हम उन्हें विशेष कौशल सीखने के लिए भी प्रोत्साहित करते हैं, जिससे उन्हें फिल्म निर्माण की प्रक्रिया में मदद मिलेगी। मुझे लगता है कि यह हमारे देश और फिल्म उद्योग के लोगों के लिए महत्वपूर्ण है। “

Unique Initiative: Renowned Ayurveda proponent Acharya Manish spearheads  distribution of free immunity booster medicines to COVID patients across India

Renowned Ayurveda expert Acharya Manish– “COVID era has resulted in the re-emergence of Ayurveda.”

Acharya Manish chalks out ambitious expansion plan for ‘Shuddhi Ayurveda’, aims to set up over 200 more clinics across India by year end

Well known Ayurveda expert Acharya Manish’s immunity boosting medicines turn many COVID 19 patients across India negative in 3 days flat

New Delhi/NCR, July , 2020:

Award winning Ayurveda expert & motivational speaker  – Acharya Manish, has initiated a social campaign to counter the spread of COVID 19. Acharya Manish uses age-old therapies of Ayurveda to promote the 5000 – years – old vedic science. It is noteworthy that Acharya Manish has founded ‘Shuddhi Ayurveda’ an Ayurvedic Clinic & Research Centre at Zirakpur. ‘Shuddhi Ayurveda’ already has presence across India through 105 clinics which are helping patients adopt Ayurveda to counter all type of diseases.

It is noteworthy that ‘Shuddhi Ayurveda’ has a presence in Delhi NCR with 5 clinics in Delhi, 3 in Gurugram and 1 each in Faridabad & Noida.

To fight against COVID 19 an intense research conducted by Ayurvedic doctors under the guidance of Acharya Manish was done and an immunity boosting pack – ‘Shuddhi Herbal Immunity Package’ was made. Using this pack & specialised anti COVID medications Acharya Manish started an initiative to help needy people, who were not able to afford expensive medicines, against the n Coronavirus. A helpline number 8273183731 was established , where calls from across the country were and are still being received and already as many as 500 needy people have asked for the package & customised medicines all of which are certified by AYUSH.

Acharya Manish said, “As the pandemic has struck the whole world, millions of people have lost their jobs. People infected with the virus don’t even have money for their medical treatment. Therefore we decided to conduct a social initiative and distribute our anti COVID combo free to COVID patients.”

He highlighted, “In the combo we have included three medicines, Vish Har Ras, thirty two (32) herbs tea and Ayush Kwath. Vish Har Ras has major ingredients like Neem & Giloy, which have high antiviral properties. The tea contains 32 medicinal herbs like elaichi, dalchini which have antioxidant properties and Ayush Kwath contains tulsi, pepper and shunthi which help in increasing immunity. I am happy to say that many of the COVID 19 patients turned negative in just 3-4 days of using our immunity booster pack and other medicines.”

It is pertinent to state  that many elated patients’ who turned negative in just 3-4 days of taking the medication sent back videos of their experience and also advocated adopting Ayurveda for a healthy lifestyle.

Patients who benefitted were not only spread across Delhi NCR but even states like Maharashtra, Gujarat, UP, Haryana, Chhattisgarh, Himachal and West Bengal. Beneficiaries included those with COVID like symptoms, those who wanted to protect themselves from the disease and Corona positive patients. As many as 100 COVID positive patients turned negative after 3 days to a week of using the medicines.

When Corona entered India, Acharya Manish had told the central government that with the help of Ayurveda, the disease can be prevented, PM Modi himself also announced that with the help of Ayurveda one can increase the immunity to prevent the virus infection.  

“The sad part is that even in the land where Ayurveda was born –India, the science has always been given lesser importance than Allopathy. But now due to benefits people are witnessing from Ayurveda in countering COVID 19, Ayurveda is again getting recognition and it is a matter of time before Ayurveda becomes a preferred treatment protocol in India.” Opined Acharya Manish.

Ignited by the idea of promoting Ayurveda as a way of life and to make the saying ‘Vocal for Local’ a reality in India’s healthcare sector, Acharya Manish has chalked out an ambitious expansion plan for ‘Shuddhi Ayurveda’. Under this, over 200 centres in addition to the existing 105 clinics of ‘Shuddhi Ayurveda’ will be set up by this year end.

Zenofar Fathima Will Chill Down Your Spine In Phycho Horror Thriller SPECTER Web Series By Zen Film Productions...

Under the Quija series Zen Film Productions SPECTER  delves  into horror, mystery, and the supernatural. After the local success of social awareness short films like The Power, A Dark Tale, The Peril and more, Specter is set to take psychological terror to new heights. The ten-minute film sees filmmaker and CEO of Zen Film Productions Zenofar Fathima, struggling to overcome her inner demons, as she sets out to explore an unprecedented presence. The series is currently being filmed during the Coronavirus outbreak with all safety precautions being adhered to, which is a rare feat for most filmmakers at this time. The series’ first episode has premiered exclusively on Zee Cinemas Middle East. After the much awaited release, multiple film critics in the UAE have weighed in to give their verdict on the first episode that is set catapult the saga into action. Zenofar’s performance especially fascinated audiences and film critics, who cited Zenofar as a convincing performer “who effectively brings out the character’s contrasting persona of power and vulnerability”. Others have also cited the film as one that “consistently mystifies” and as an “in quarantine shot thriller that pulls you to the edge”. Along with these reviews, audiences young and old alike had enjoyed the thrills and jump scares throughout the film. Additionally, Sheikha Hend Al Qassemi, an Emirati princess of the Al Qasimi family of Sharjah, businesswoman, and dear friend of Zenofar had praised Zenofar for her work, and wished her all the success for Specter.

On the night of the premiere, multiple bloggers, vloggers and local reporters from the UAE had also caught up with Zen to speak about the film and a little about what inspired the idea to create this series. “I think I’ve given my best to this film, it’s something new and I have taken on a new role like never seen before in my past films,” says Zenofar Fathima. Zenofar also delved into what it was like to be one of the first production houses in the UAE to initiate production during the Coronavirus. “I think we did whatever we could whilst maintaining the precautions as mandated by the government, and it is truly one of my greatest achievements- to produce a whole short film during the pandemic”. With that being said, many are also curious to understand how Zen Film Productions took certain precautions as per government rulings without compromising any aspect of Specter’s plot.

“We all stay in the same place so that was not an issue- we had a limited amount of people to work with as we were cautious due to the virus being contagious. Not only that but we had done it when the lockdown had just started and everyone had stopped work. We were all under loads of mental stress, just imagining how everything could go wrong when it was all so uncertain”, Zenofar explains. “At times like this it is important to be innovative, creative and careful in your approach- and that is exactly how we were able to follow COVID19 precautions whilst also being able to film an engaging yet enigmatic movie.

You have to make do with what you have and that, according to me is the biggest challenge for a filmmaker- but also a reflection of your talent. And now that we are moving onto the next episode, we still have to be mindful of the danger that is the Coronavirus and stay careful, whilst ensuring we can film the footage we need and create another showstopping film” says producer and director Zenofar’s Fathima.

Now that the first episode of the series has released, many are intrigued to watch how this psychological thriller is set to unfold as the first episode had ended on a cryptic cliffhanger.  There will be four additional installments of the series that will each amount to 15 minutes. The next installment in the series is currently being filmed and is called Specter: Genesis, a mystifying title that is open to audience interpretation.  “I don’t want to reveal too much about what is it come, but all I can say is get ready to witness a lot of twists and turns, and a bone chilling narrative and will start a few fresh faces as well as some renowned personalities,” says Zenofar. Specter: Genesis also promises a new lineup  of new characters with interesting backstories and backgrounds, and the second installment like the first, will be released on a to be announced exclusive platform.

Along with the continuation of the Specter Saga, Zenofar also plans to add on to her collection of public service announcements with “Tomorrow Never Came”. The story of Tomorrow Never Came revolves around a tale of a doctor who finds herself in a dilemma when the Coronavirus pandemic changes her life. The PSA comes shortly after Zenofar released the Hope PSA that focused on depression and suicidal tendencies of many during the Coronavirus. The PSA had resonated with many who had just lost their jobs or couldn’t be with their families, resulting in negative thoughts and a worsening mental well-being.

    

However, Zenofar changes these negative thoughts and helped to channel them in a method that breeds positivity, advising audiences to find that one reason to live. With Tomorrow Never Came, Zenofar hopes create a narrative that resonates with people- however, this time it’s  the healthcare heroes who have saved millions of lives daily. “I’ve seen so many films and PSAs in the past few months, but I haven’t seen anyone acknowledging doctors, who put their lives and their family’s lives on the line just so they can make sure we are safe and healthy. This PSA is dedicates to all the doctors who have shown us what it truly means to be a hero”, says Zenofar. The PSA has been shot and is set to be released soon.
