Youngsters can learn the virtue of patience from Sinhasan Battisi’s Vikramaditya

Youngsters can learn the virtue of patience from Sinhasan Battisi’s Vikramaditya

 

The popular and talented actor Karan Suchak who is seenportraying the role of King Vikramaditya in PAL’s popular show Sinhasan Battisi is thoroughly enjoying his experience of being a part of mythological saga. We met the actor who shared his thoughtson playing the mythological character for second time on television.

Tell us something about the king Vikramaditya?

Lord Indra had presented King Vikramaditya with a throne, which signified his character, his work and his achievements. Years later, Raja Bhoj came across the throne, which was guarded by 32 angels. When he attempted to sit on it, the angels started telling him the tale of King Vikramaditya and how he would also have to complete the same challenges before he could make the throne his. Each incident has been shot and will be narrated in an interesting story-telling manner in PAL’s Sinhasan Battisi.

How did you bag the role of King Vikramaditya?

Just when I had finished playing Drishtadhyumna in a show, I was offered the role of Vikramaditya in Sinhasan Battisi.

Which characteristics of Vikramaditya do you think that youngsters today must adapt?

Today’s youngsters should learn the virtue of patience from him. He was a righteous king, and very patient. He would never make a decision in anger. He would weigh the pros and cons, and always put his subjects before him. He was a warrior, but never believed in war.”

What do you think of the mythological shows on television?

I feel that the mythological shows have a different connect with the audience. When the audience are being told a story from history or mythology through a visual medium, they connect to it.

You wanted to become a cricketer, then how acting happened to you?

Acting was not on my mind as a career option. As a kid I did many plays and people did tell me that I should explore acting as an option. But I was always inclined towards sport and also played cricket for Gujarat at the state level. I guess it was destiny that I became an actor.

What are your interests?

I keep myself busy at all times. I spend most of my time working out in the gym which in turn helps me to be part of this industry. I am very passionate about my health, I make sure that I’m fit and fine. I play the keyboard and like to compose music. I am also very spiritual. I watch online videos and read books on spirituality. But we hardly get time to indulge in our interests now because of our busy schedule.

Sinhasan Battisi airs from Monday to Saturday, at 9.30pm, on new channel PAL.

Jewellery in India, the US and the UK – the highlights of Q3 2014

Jewellery in India, the US and the UK – the highlights of Q3 2014

global gold demand

According to the latest Gold Demand Trends report from the World Gold Council, covering

the period Julyto September 2014,global demand for gold was down just 2% year on year to

929 tonnes (t).

Overall jewellery demand softened slightly down 4% to 534t, when compared with an

exceptional quarter in 2013.Taking a slightly longer term view, Q3 2014 jewellery demand

was marginally stronger than the quarterly average of 527.6t. Year todate volumes continue

to extend the broad uptrend from the low seen in 2009.

Looking behind this overall number, inIndia,jewellery demandsaw a 60% year on year

increase to 183t in Q3 2014, the second highest Q3 on record for the country. While the

increase is partly reflective of the weakness in Q3 in India last year -when the government

introduced import curbs and raised import duties – it also demonstrates the resilience of the

country’s appetite for gold jewellery. Improved consumer confidence in both the domestic

economy and the new government added to the positive sentiment, with strong levels of

purchasingbeing seen in the build up to Diwali.

In China jewellerydemand for Q3 2014 was down 39% yearonyear, but was broadly in line

with both Q3 2012 and the 5-year quarterly average (of 148.2t and 154.9t respectively).

Whilst in the US and UK, jewellery demand was strong, buoyed by ongoing economic

recoveries. US jewellery demand grew 4% yearonyear to 34t, the highest Q3 since 2009. UK

jewellery demand had its fifth consecutive quarter of year on year growth.

Investment demand, a combination of bars and coins and exchange-traded funds (ETF),

was up 6% to 204t. However, investment in bars and coins was down 21% to 246t. This

reflects an adjustment towards more normal levels of demand after a surge of unprecedented

consumer demand took place last year. ETF outflows stood at 84t for the year to date

compared to 699t in the same period last year. Third quarter demand for bars and coinswas

very close to the 10-year quarterly average of 240.6t. It’s worth noting that before the

financial crisis of 2008, the European bar and coin market was virtually non-existent.

Marcus Grubb, Managing Director of Investment Strategy at the World Gold Council

said:

“This quarter the market continued to find its feet after an exceptional 2013, with China

catching its breath and buying in the build up to Diwali driving Indian jewellery purchases.

The figures for India and China this quarterreinforce the need tounderstandthe factors which

underpinnedan exceptionalQ3 last year.In 2013, India was impactedby import curbs and

increased import dutiesimposed by the previous government, whereasexceptional buying in

China during the same periodshaped buying patterns in 2014.

Iron Man becomes a Diabetes Hero in initiative from Siemens and Marvel Custom Solutions

Iron Man becomes a Diabetes Hero in initiative from Siemens and Marvel Custom Solutions

Just in time for World Diabetes Day, the Diagnostics Division of Siemens Healthcare, in collaboration with Marvel Custom Solutions, is raising awareness about the importance of diabetes diagnosis and monitoring through a new educational initiative, “Become a Diabetes Hero.” Through the program, healthcare professionals have access to an information kit—which includes an all-new custom comic book starring the world-famous Iron Man1—aimed at engaging and empowering their young patients, parents and caregivers by increasing the understanding of diabetes and the critical role that point-of-care (POC) hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) testing plays. POC refers to in vitro diagnostic testing that occurs outside of the central laboratory, such as in physician offices, emergency room and outpatient clinics.

“With a simple fingerstick of blood, diabetes can be easily diagnosed and managed with HbA1c testing, allowing the physician to discuss results with the patient and take immediate action,” explains David Stein, Ph.D, CEO, POC Business Unit, Siemens Healthcare, Diagnostics Division. “As the global leader in POC HbA1c testing, Siemens is excited to collaborate with Marvel Custom Solutions on this program to enable healthcare professionals to facilitate education and discussion with young patients and their caregivers.”

A cornerstone of the “Become a Diabetes Hero” information kit is the 8-page custom comic book, Early Warnings, featuring Iron Man and Marvel Custom character, Daisy, a young girl who develops diabetes and manages her disease. Other materials in the kit include a set of coloring pages for young patients to complete in waiting rooms or take home, an information pamphlet and a program poster for display in exam rooms. The comic book and short animation featuring Iron Man and Daisy are also easily accessible at: http://www.healthcare.siemens.com/point-of-care/diabetes-hero.

“For over 75 years, our heroes have faced diabolical villains with courage and determination. Following in their footsteps, we are proud to work with Siemens to develop an entertaining and educational story that adolescents can use to help monitor and manage diabetes,” says Bill Rosemann, Creative Director Marvel Custom Solutions. “Siemens’ insight and passion were critical to helping us bring this important issue to life in a compelling adventure that will speak directly to young readers and their parents.”

Diabetes is a growing concern among children and adolescents. It is estimated that 440,000 children worldwide have diabetes, with 70,000 new cases diagnosed each year.2 Also, in the United States alone, one in four adolescents (ages 9-12) may be on the verge of developing Type 2 diabetes or could already be diabetic, representing a sharp increase from a decade ago, when it was estimated that fewer than one in 10 adolescents were at risk for or had the disease. If the disease is not properly managed, children with diabetes can eventually experience serious complications, including cardiovascular disease, nerve damage and kidney damage. HbA1c testing measures average blood glucose control for the past 2 to 3 months to show how well a patient is managing diabetes. A patient with high A1c levels is at greater risk for developing diabetes-related complications.
