On the occasion of the ‘World Heart Day’ Actress Kajol Devgan came specially to launch the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Awareness Initiative by CSI2018 & MCGM at NSCI , Worli . Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) kills one Indian every minute! This amounts to losing, every year, nearly 20 lac people to SCA in India and about 20000 lives in Mumbai alone. Sudden cardiac arrest is common in the young, people in the prime of their lives (35-60 years of age). A precious life lost, devastating family and society. Survival of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest is dismal, with the probability of only one life saved for every ten victims. Immediate recognition of SCA and early initiation of chest compressions by bystanders improves survival three to four-fold. In India, recognition and assistance of a SCA victim is non-existent. It is about time to save precious Indian lives. The agenda of the launch was to highlight the burden of the problem and, more importantly, spread awareness amongst the public about identifying the SCA victim, calling for medical help, initiating ‘hands-only CPR’ and familiarize them with the use of AED – automated external defibrillator, which is a life saver. It is important to note that cities and countries where media has supported this cause and spread public awareness have saved many more lives.
Dr. Prafulla Kerkar spoke regarding spreading the awareness of Sudden Cardiac Arrest. He also asked everyone to learn regarding C.P.R . Read more

How to increase awareness regarding investments in India

Share/Bookmark

By K Ashwin Mobile: 09920183006 Email:indianshowbusiness@gmail.com

In developing nations like India, China, and other SAARC countries, financial literacy is still under an evolutionary process. The masses have low to medium knowledge about making investments or the importance of having regular income from assets held. When the Central Government changed in India in 2014, the Prime Minister launched one of the many schemes to enable financial inclusion in the country – the ‘Jan Dhan Yojana’. This scheme targeted financial inclusion in the country and was an attempt to aid investment in bank deposits on a micro level.

 

Bringing awareness about investments is a difficult task, due to various reasons: the nature of the subject, difficulty in earning the trust of investors, persuading investors to opt for a certain investment vehicle over the other, perception of risks of fraudulent schemes, the digitisation of investments etc. Indians by their very nature are usually conservative, and often are apprehensive about investing, due to the low scale of financial literacy and inclusion in the country.

 

Here are some ways by which an awareness about investments can be brought about:

 

Simplifying content: Education in India is fact-based, instead of being practical. Investment education should ideally be incorporated in the high school, graduate and postgraduate curriculum in an increasing order of complexity. Learning about investments must not be only restricted to students of commerce or finance. Being a practical life skill, this subject should be simplified and compiled to fit educational institutions’ syllabi. Read more
