National Parents of the Year..!
Parents’ Day is celebrated on the fourth Sundayday each year in America. Citizens, organizations, and federal, state, and local governmental &  legislative entities are encouraged to recognize Parents’ Day through proclamations, activities, and educational efforts to recognize, uplift & support the role of parents in bringing up their children.
The Parents’ Day Council plays an active role in celebrating & promoting Parents’ Day through a range of events and activities. 
For example, the council honors “Parents of the Year” at local, state & national levels. Those who have been nominated / selected are people who exemplify the standard and ideal of positive parenthood. Exemplary parents from each state are nominated for “National Parents of the Year”.
Cards,  Gifts..!
Parents’ Day is a popular time for people to send cards & gifts, including flowers, cakes and food hampers, to those who play an important role as a positive parental figure in their lives. It is also a time for families to come together for lunches / dinners. Special tributes to parental figures who are seen as role models are made through local announcements, at church services / at local community events.
Parents’ Day proclamations and rallies have been held in recent times &  involved organizations such as the United Civil Rights Councils of America.
National Observance..!
The Parents’ Day is a national observance. Bu it is not a public holiday in the United States.
Parents’ Day promotes the message that the role of the parent is important in human development, which requires investment, focus, and commitment.
In 1994 President Mr. Bill Clinton signed into law a resolution adopted by the US Congress to establish the 4th Sundayday of every July as Parents' Day.
This day is similar to Mother's Day &  Father's Day.
According to the Congressional Resolution, Parents’ Day is established for “recognizing, uplifting, and supporting the role of parents in the rearing of children”
Images of people engaged in active learning activities with their children are often used in photos, posters, paintings, stickers & sketches to promote Parents’ Day. Images of flowers are also used to promote the day.
The messages that organizations try to portray through these images are that: commitment is a core family value; parental responsibilities are important to children’s growth & development; and that unconditional love is needed for a strong bond between parental figures and their children. Parental figures include biological, foster or step parents.

Indias urban population is projected to grow to 53 crore by 2025

World Population Day - July 11

India's urban population is projected to grow to 53.30 crore by 2025; and the real estate sector is likely to grow by almost 30 per cent over the next decade, partly as a result of building accommodations for this expanding urban population.

Since the housing sector currently contributes up to 6 per cent of Indai's GDP (Gross Domestic Production) and with the National Urban Housing and Habitat Policy stating that minimum 50 per cent of the population will live in urban areas by 2041, there is a need to guide sustainable mobility and infrastructure within townships that are coming up in peripheral areas.

Pune’s Koregaon Park & Kalyani Nagar : Rs. 8,000 to 15,000 per square feet.!

By Mr. Sanjay Bajaj, MD, JLL India

Koregaon Park is arguably the swankiest & among the most expensive real estate destinations in Pune.
Even before the Osho Commune was established there in the 1970s, it was a location of choice for bungalows.

Koregaon Park .!
After the arrival of the Commune, it became one of the primary congregation hubs for multinational travelers. The existence of the Osho Commune has transformed Koregaon Park – some say beyond recognition. Probably the best way to describe it is ‘a location somewhere on the border of California and Tibet.’ It has its own identity, which is very separate from that of any other area in Pune.
Koregaon Park has become a prime location for residential property seekers as well as retail outlets and commercial establishments. The proximity to Kalyani Nagar  - one of Pune’s primary IT (Information Technology) and ITeS hubs - has done much to maintain this demand. Koregaon Park’s up-market profile reflects in the property rates – commercial properties lease out from anywhere between Rs. 50 to 70 per square feet. while residential properties sell between Rs. 8,000  to Rs. 15,000 square feet & above, depending on exact location & building typology. Supply on both the commercial and residential real estate fronts is extremely limited, and traffic congestion is an increasing problem in this area.

Kalyani Nagar..!
Kalyani Nagar has emerged one of the most prominent & established commercial and residential real estate destinations on the Eastern Corridor of Pune. Its strategic location between Koregaon Park & Viman Nagar and its proximity to the airport, railway station & close connection to Kharadi & Hadapsar makes it an ideal destination for IT / ITES companies. The Pune - Mumbai Expressway has been another major contributing factor.
It was was given a head start by Dr. Neelkanth Kalyani – owner of various notable companies like Bharat Forge and Optronica – after whom it is named. Today, it is a hotbed of IT activity and has come a long way as one of the most upmarket residential property destinations in Pune. It is house to up market hotels & boasts of a golf course as well as prestigious social establishments.
The unstoppable tide of the IT and ITES-BPO segments has completely reinvented the property landscape at Kalyani Nagar. High grade residential property options have sprung up all over. Amongst all the above mentioned localities, Kalyani Nagar’s rate of development is by far the fastest. Judging solely on the basis of property market potential, the Estate Agents Association of Pune voted Kalyani Nagar to be one of the most promising localities in 2005.
The Government responded to this potential by beginning construction of the Kalyani Nagar-Koregaon Park connecting bridge, thereby linking 2 of the most progressive &  vibrant localities. The ease of transport & commuting that this has resulted in is has resulted in even higher industrial and retail activity, and has given a major boost to the residential property sector, as well. With Kalyani Nagar firmly on the high-priority list, development is going on at an accelerated rate.
Rs. 9,000 to 14,000 per square feet.!
For today’s house seeker, this area is a regular treasure - trove of attractions. Most reputed builders in Pune have at least one luxury residential project here, and the general infrastructure is supremely conducive to modern family life. Priced at an average of Rs. 9,000 to 14,000 square feet, residential properties at Kalyani Nagar definitely command a premium over most of the other localities in Pune City.

Hepatitis C awareness - World Hepatitis Day

World Hepatitis Day July 28

The Hepatitis C is a viral disease that leads to swelling (inflammation) of the liver. The infection is often asymptomatic. But chronic & can lead to scarring of the liver and ultimately to cirrhosis, which is generally apparent after several years. WHO (World Health Organisation) marks July 28 as the 'World Hepatitis Day" every year to increase awareness & understanding of viral hepatitis.

Hepatitis simply means swelling of the liver that persists more than 6 months. Notably, one of the most common causes of chronic hepatitis are viral infection, alcohol, drugs, chemicals, fatty liver & autoimmune disease but HBV (Hepatitis B virus) and HCV (Hepatitis C) virus infections account for about  75% of chronic Hepatitis worldwide.

According to World Hepatitis Alliance, Now, about 50 crore people are infected with either chronic Hepatitis B / C and one in three people have been exposed to one or both viruses.

Hepatitis C is caused by the virus HCV. It also spreads through contact from an infected person`s blood, semen, body fluid.

Like hepatitis B, hepatitis C causes swelling of the liver & can cause liver damage that can lead to cancer.

Geographical distribution & Transmission..!

Countries with high rates of chronic infection are Egypt (22 per cent), Pakistan (4.8 per cent) and China (3.2 per cent). The main mode of transmission in these countries is attributed to unsafe injections using contaminated equipment.

Hepatitis C virus is commonly transmitted through exposure to infectious blood.

This can occur through:

^  Receipt of contaminated blood transfusions, blood products & organ transplants

^ Injections given with contaminated syringes & needle stick injuries in health care settings

^ Injection drug use

^  Being born to a hepatitis C-infected mother.

Highlights - Hepatitis C..!

^ Hepatitis C is a liver disease caused by the hepatitis C virus. The disease caused can range in severity from a mild illness lasting a few weeks to a serious, lifelong condition that can lead to cirrhosis of the liver or liver cancer.

^Hepatitis C virus is transmitted through contact with the blood of an infected person.

^ Nearly  1.50 crore are chronically infected with hepatitis C virus, and above 3.5 lakh people die every year from hepatitis C related liver diseases.

^ The  Hepatitis C is curable using antivirals. There is currently no vaccine for hepatitis C.
