– Seminar of Parijat-Dr. Kumarpal Desai
With the corona virus still barely a day away, there is talk of ‘Disease X’ and the World Health Organization has raised concerns about the disease caused by ten of the many viruses and research is underway today. History says, ‘The coming new virus will be more dangerous and for it, mankind will have to urgently arrange diagnostic tests and vaccines. If he does not make such an arrangement, this virus will take more lives than the previous virus for mankind.’ Some say, ‘By showing the danger of such a virus, fear and dread is created in mankind.’ So some say that, ‘Instead of panicking, their purpose is to bring the fact that such a virus can come into ‘people’s radar’.
Thus, researches and preparations are going on regarding the coming ‘Disease X’ from 2020 and it is believed that this virus will come to mankind from animal virus. In fact, the researchers say, ‘Now animal diseases will quickly spread to humans, as humans come into contact with animals more and more, and then such diseases will spread more rapidly as modern humans travel abroad and trade.’ ‘Disease X’ will be twenty times more deadly than Corona, say scientists. Thus, on one side there are people worried about the upcoming ‘Disease X’, on the other side there are also positive thinkers. They believe that these diseases actually exist and that we can eliminate them through research, that is a fact. Why such optimism?
An example of this is smallpox, the worst disease of all time. This disease has afflicted mankind for ten thousand years. Smallpox is mentioned in ancient texts from India and China, and when the mummy of the Egyptian king Ramses V was opened, his face also showed signs of smallpox. Due to this smallpox, if we talk about the twentieth century alone, 40 crore people have died. That’s the number of people who died in all the wars in the entire history of mankind. More than that have died from smallpox.
For years, four lakh people fell victim to the disease every year and one in three patients lost their lives. In 1721, a smallpox epidemic in Boston infected half of the city’s population. We also see some beliefs about smallpox there and also see her as a goddess in her temples and keep beliefs. Born on May 17, 1749, Edward Jenner, a physician and scientist from England, discovered the smallpox vaccine and, most importantly, became the first inventor in the world to find an ‘immune vaccine’, so Edward Jenner is considered the father of ‘immunology’. This is Edward Jenner, who has saved more lives than any other human being. He developed the smallpox vaccine and coined the term ‘vaccination’.
From the idea that why only the shepherdess Sarah who comes to milk herself does not get infected, his search proceeded and he found that those who get ‘cowpox’, a disease on the cow’s udder, do not get ‘smallpox’. For this, he experimented on an eight-year-old child. Then Satyaveesh experimented on patients and Edward Jenner discovered a smallpox vaccine that saved mankind and over time this vaccination method was adopted by countries one by one and today we hear that the world has been free from smallpox for the past four decades.
Smallpox may not be understood by those who see it wreaking havoc with their own eyes, but at one time it killed twenty percent of the population of cities and towns, because it spread rapidly in these cities, and if we look at other statistics, before Edward Jenner’s discovery, smallpox killed ten percent of the world’s population. was filled.
The world is now reeling against this strange picture of the virus and in a sense, a great war is going on between the virus and medical research. Until a vaccine is discovered, the virus is in a single-cycle cycle. After the discovery of the vaccine, its lethal activity is reduced. The only question is that between the outbreak of the disease and the discovery of a vaccine, mankind has to live in fear and loss of life.
For this technology will come to the aid of mankind. If we look into the future, we will realize that we will be able to destroy our pathological enemies through technology and we will get a strong support from computers. A computer model will be prepared in which ten lakh people can be treated within seconds. In addition, we are studying the human genome in depth and as a result, treatment of diseases can already be started.
The biggest thing is that we will have big data about the disease. A history of numerous patients who battled or battled the disease can be obtained. It will be easy to find its cure through the information obtained from it. Getting information from everywhere and then doing research will relieve the situation. Dr. Ali Parsa works on artificial intelligence and he has developed an AI that can diagnose and treat diseases better than doctors. works on. This Iranian doctor living in Britain is creating an ‘app’ that diagnoses diseases through a digital health company called ‘Babylon Health’. According to him, in three years there will be a situation when the machine will be able to diagnose better than doctors based on its data, studies and research. Let us think that maybe ten years instead of three, but the world is moving towards this. Because over time more data and cheaper sensors combined with artificial intelligence will lead to much faster breakthroughs.
For example, it is said that these viruses are elusive little organisms. They have no understanding, but are efficient strivers. While man has strategies to deal with it. While the virus does not have the strength to resist that strategy. After the discovery of the vaccine, the harmful effects of the virus disappear. That’s it, this is our game and the first one wins. All we have to do is wait for the vaccine created by the amazing technology research.
Even there we are now giving glasses to people with some form of blindness that give limited vision to the opticians. Radiowaves are used to effectively treat high blood pressure in Europe. Artificial organs have also been developed, which are controlled by the human brain, and perhaps looking further into the future, the time is not far off when we can 3D print new veins and arteries and easily replace organs such as the liver.
Similarly, robotics will provide limb support to rehabilitating disabled people and allow the disabled person to gradually regain use of their arms and legs. And now telepresence robots that allow doctors to virtually diagnose someone anywhere in the world. While computer controlled lasers are performing surgeries that humans cannot do with their hands. A company in the Netherlands is developing a tablet that can travel to deliver its medicinal ingredients to a specific part of the body.
Friends! There are many such lists. The only question is that with the help of technology, a person will be financially able to get his treatment done, right? But one of the main features of technology is that over time the power of that technology increases and simultaneously its cost decreases. You have had such an experience with computers and laptops, right? Let’s imagine the future and help the sick, diseased and afflicted with human-made technology!
Pericles (49 BC to 429 BC), a highly influential Greek statesman, eloquent orator, and general of Athens, had a profound influence on the social life of Athens. He was called the ‘first citizen’ of Athens.
He encouraged art and literary activity in Athens, making the city an educational and cultural center in ancient Greece. Pericles was a strong advocate of democracy and despite being an excellent ruler, he had his critics and detractors among the people. Since morning, he has made outrageous statements about it. Accused and angrily made insulting promises to him.
Pericles was unfazed by the criticism of his opponents. He kept listening to everything calmly. His adversary spent the whole afternoon in recriminations and did not stop even after evening. It was getting dark. The opponent was tired of shouting and throwing up his hands in anger. When he started to go home, Pericles called his servant and said, ‘Take the lantern with him. He will not find a way in the dark and will make mistakes somewhere.’ Hearing these words of Pericles, his ardent opponent fell into thought. Accusations poured on him. Pericles takes such good care of me, though nothing is left to be said. Thinking thus, his anger melted and he apologized for his misbehaviour.
Revelation of the moment
What a time has come to glorify anger, anger, arrogance and insolence! Courtesy, goodwill and co-feeling have departed from life and conduct and the owner believes that if anger or rage is shown to an employee, he ‘goes straight’. If we work with a high brow, then we should be called an officer. For many a man, his wife is a convenient outlet for his pent-up anger. Thus anger has started to be considered as very effective and believes that only then can its sting be felt. Only then can work be done and be successful. Some get used to anger like a tea habit. Your anger will sting others, but the one who does such anger does not realize the fact that his anger will sting him the most! An angry person wants to show or establish his dominance, but anger brings him down, saps his energies and reduces his concentration. It happens that ‘Hero’ also stops becoming ‘Zero’. And most of all, when the person on whom you are angry, when he remembers you, that angry image is visible to him. It is not to be forgotten that anger committed once remains embedded in the mind of the opposite person for life. That becomes the unwelcome identity of your personality.
