On Occasion of observing World MS Day ,MSSI, Mumbai along with Lions Club of Juhu, had organised a Rejuvenating Evening on Saturday 19th May, 2018. Time: 4.30 pm- 7.30 pm at Rotary Club of Juhu, Mumbai.
In all 160 people including 36 MSPs were present. The first Event was Brain Yoga & Laughter Therapy by Mr R. Kumar Bhat. A qualified Aerobics instructor. He made everyone to participate in different forms of Laughter Exercises.
On this World MS Day, MSSI Mumbai Chapter had organised a Writing Competition. We had invited stories, essays & poems from MSPs & Caregivers on the theme “LIVING WITH MS” . We received tremendous response.In all there were 56 entries from all over India.
The main highlight of the evening was Prize Distribution. We were fortunate to have two well known Judges from literary field: Mr Nilu Damle ; Journalist, Author& Critic & Mrs Anjana Karnik ; Author & Poet.
Both the Judges were touched by the inspirational Articles written by MS patients & it was quite difficult for them to choose the winners. Ultimately 14 participants were selected as Winners from 56 entries. They were given cash prize of Rs1000/- each. All the 56 participants received a Certificate of Participation & a gift of beautiful Photo frame.
By year end , we would like to compile the selected Entries in a book.
The Program ended with relaxing Music Therapy– By Ashish Kasbe. – Music Therapist.On behalf of Lions Club, Mr Hiten & Zarna sponsored delicious refreshments to all present. They also paid the rent of the hall and made all the necessary arrangements to make this Program a big success.
