    Pradosh Vrata/International Literacy Day/ World Physiotherapy Day

    Triodashi is called Pradosh. Like Ekadashi, Pradosh is important every month, Vishnu is remembered in Ekadashi and Shiva is remembered in Pradosh. Pradosh begins 45 minutes before sunset and ends 45 minutes after sunset.

    Pradosha Katha
    It is mentioned in the scriptures that Lord Shiva cured the disease of the moon on the day of Triodashi, when the effect of the moon was diminishing.

    Due to this, Pradosh Vrat is observed in Triodashi of every month in remembrance of Lord Shiva. It is more fruitful to worship Shiva in the time of pradosh.

    International Literacy Day 2022

    September 8, World Literacy Day. In 1965, UNESCO declared September 8 of each year as World Literacy Day. Schools, communities, and institutions around the world celebrate this day spontaneously in various ways to spread awareness for literacy.

    Literacy and human rights
    In the modern world, education and literacy are linked to basic human rights, but studies show that more than 770 million people around the world do not have basic literacy skills. It is easy to find some illiterate people of all ages living near us. It is a fundamental right of everyone to be able to read and write by recognizing common letters and numbers and general arithmetic. However, these things need to come out of the pages of paper and come true in real life.

    According to the Global Literacy Monitoring Report, one in five men and two-thirds of women in the world are still illiterate, and many more have extremely low literacy skills. Many children still do not go to school and even those who do get it do not go to school every day. Countries including West and South Asia still have low literacy rates.

    International Literacy Day 2022 Theme
    Every year, UNESCO selects a theme for International Literacy Day. This year, the theme is “Transforming Literacy Learning Spaces” to help inform people of the importance of literacy learning spaces to build inclusive education for all.

    How can we make everyone literate is the question for today, whether it is by reading alphabet books or by giving them free daily reading or by creating a reading environment to take them to school, it is the responsibility of everyone to make a literate society, literate nation, and a literate world. ‘Siksha Dhan Sarvapradhanam’ ‘शिक्षा धनं सर्वप्रधानम"

    Meaning: Education is the supreme wealth.

    World Physical Therapy Day/ Physiotherapy day

    World Physical Therapy Day is on 8th September every year. The day is an opportunity for physiotherapists from all over the world to raise awareness about the crucial contribution the profession makes to keeping people well, mobile and independent.

    In 1813, Swiss gymnast Henrik Ligan opened the Royal Institute of Gymnastics. The organization was the first in the world to introduce massages, remedial exercises, and other exercises for mobility and pain relief.

    The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy was opened in Britain in 1894, and the first college of physiotherapy was at Walter Reed Army Hospital in Washington, DC. A physiotherapy branch was started in this hospital during the First World War.

    History of physiotherapy in Nepal
    In Nepal, the history of physiotherapy can be traced back to a few decades ago when some private hospitals formally started this as a new medical system. In the 1980s, physiotherapy was practiced through military hospitals, leprosy prevention therapies, and some trained health workers from India. In 1983, the IOM formally recognized physiotherapy as a 30-month post-SLC course.

    In this process, we have a history of about 50 people being trained till 1990, but again in 1990, physiotherapy teaching was stopped in Nepal. However, there were various informal trainings and on-the-job trainings. Since 2002, Dhulikhel Medical Institute has formally started physiotherapy. Since then, the number of courses and service providers has been increasing in Nepal.

    After the armed conflict, after 2063 BS, physiotherapy was used extensively in military camps and hospitals for the rehabilitation and recuperation of wounded and injured soldiers. NEPTA is a professional association of Nepali physiotherapists. Physiotherapy is the backbone of treatment in itself, and today back and neck pain has become the most common and recurring pain due to a more hectic lifestyle and constant use of computers and mobiles, isn't it?

    Physiotherapy is essential in various procedures including amputation and after an accidental injury. We also want to combine yoga practice with physiotherapy here. Ayurveda has given equal priority to Aahar and Bihar. Yoga practices are the basis of sophisticated physiotherapy, Patanjali and Dhanwantari's books and studies discuss yogasanas to stay healthy.

    The theme for World Physical Therapy Day 2022 is osteoarthritis. A more comprehensive theme is the role of physiotherapists in their management and prevention. Other rheumatological disorders will be the focus in 2023.

    Hamro Patro - Connecting Nepali Communities
    Hamro Patro is one of the first Nepali app to include Nepali Patro, launched in 2010. We started with a Nepali Calendar mobile app to help Nepalese living abroad stay in touch with Nepalese festivals and important dates in Nepali calendar year. Later on, to cater to the people who couldn’t type in Nepali using fonts like Preeti, Ganesh and even Nepali Unicode, we built nepali mobile keyboard called Hamro Nepali keyboard.
