“Health is the state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely an absence of disease or infirmity”
World Health Day was observed on 8th of April 2021 by the teams of Humanity Institute of Advanced Medical & Cultural Research (HIAMCR), which was lead by the youngest scientist as well as active health activities Dr. Sinchan Das. Time and again the team of HIAMCR has come forward actively to aware people through their writings, camps, seminars and conferences with some of the most sensitive topics in the society such as sex educations, Mental health, Infertility and many more.
Continuing with the legacy, one again the team of HIAMCR came forward with third round table conference as an interactive session with students in an aim to find out the ways to survive from the current burning health issues in the world.
On proceeding with the session, Dr. Sinchan Das led down the first question to the students “What do you think is the main culprit of health science?”
In response to the question, Miss. Swastika Subba pointed out those human thoughts or the perceptions regarding how they must lead a health life has a significant affect in all aspects of their living, which collectively influence their well-beings. Consecutively, Mr. Priyankesh Mishra responded to this particular question sating that when we are taking about health it is necessary for us to understand the very concepts of health. Considering this, he further added that that not just mental aspects but it is also physical and social aspects that serve as the culprit of health science where lifestyle, ignorance, arrogance, resistance, acquired and congenital traits act as a triggering factors. Similarly, Mr. Saikat Bera responded to the two discussions saying that it is difficult to particularly point out one culprit for health science. On the other hand, Miss. Aparajita Bej stressed out on environmental factors has another main culprit of health science.
Responding to the interactive discussion of the students, Dr. Sinchan Das stated that culprits is not just one factors rather culprit are collectively formed from the social aspects that includes environmental, physical and mental parameters. Along with this, Dr. Sinchan Das also stated that genetic factors also equally serves as the culprit of health Science and must be included in the definition of health.
Moving on with the main theme of the conference, Dr. Sinchan Das further asked the students “What is positive health or what do you understand by the terms positive health?”
In response to this, the students collectively respond by saying that when a person is physically, mentally, spiritually and socially fit where it is also accounts their quality or standard of living.
Elaborating with their statements, Dr. Sinchan Das conveyed that one of the parameter given in community of health through which the quality of life is measure in the society is their gross expenditure and gross earning. On contradicting this particular measuring parameter given in community health, Dr. Sinchan Das instead questioned “Is it possible to measure the quality of life by the means of money?” he further stated that expenditure and earning must not be the judgemental factors or parameter for measuring the quality of life. He also highlighted on another parameter named Physical Quality of Life Index (PQLI), which is the motility age of a person. In contradiction to this particular parameter for quality of life, Dr. Das asked to the student…
“It’s a fact that our life expectancy rate has increased but the question is with medicine or without medicine?”
In response to this particular question majority of the students agreed on the fact that that life expectancy rate has increased but with the support of medication. Considering this, Dr. Das further asked them “So! Is it quality of life?”
In arguing to this particular question, Mr. Santanu Palit said that in recent few years there has been much advancement in the medical science, which has increased life expectancy rate in the society. In responding to his statement, Dr. Sinchan Das instead asked him “on the basis of medication, technological tools or support system?” to which he agreed. On his agreement that technological advancement is one of the major factors responsible for the increased the life expectancy rate in the society, Dr. Sinchan Das Further asked….
“So! Is the advancement of medical science or the advancement of technologies, which is responsible for the increased life expectancy rate in the society?”
Dr. Sinchan Das further adds that in reality life expectancy rate in the society has actually started to decreased with the exposure of so called medical advancement and in fact it has decreased to such an degree that today’s generation have actually transformed in drug depended individuals. If we really want to talk about the medical advancement than the names of highly developed countries such as Italy and Canada comes to our mind. Ironically, these highly developed countries are unable to stop the prevalence of Covid-19 with their advanced medical system.
On concluding with the conference, Dr. Sinchan Das presented the student with the last question…
“How can we all combat or overcome to this particular problems or situation of increasing health issues in the world?”
Collectively all the students agreed on the fact that the process of lifestyle modification way must be delivered to each of the human being in more elaborated and explained manner so that it would be easy for them to implement in their lives. Along with this, Dr. Sinchan Das stated that it is also necessary to eliminate all the negative thoughts and negative talks from our lives. Lastly, he also added that it is also necessary for us to avoid any act of ignorance, arrogance and resistance within our day-to-day activities.
