World Purple Day, mainly a day to raise our support for such type of patients who are suffering from such a neurological condition. This day is celebrated worldwide to acknowledge the effort to dispel myths and inform those with seizures that they are not alone.
On 26th March people all around the world people are invited to wear purple in the feat of raising awareness about epilepsy. At Neotia Getwel Healthcare Centre, a special programme was arranged where a group of Neurologists Dr. Swayam Prakash, Dr. Joydeep Dey and Neuro- surgeon Dr. Navneet Kumar Singh where made a part to acknowledge the event. People in the OPD region were also invited to learn and raise the consciousness on epilepsy.
A small speech and discussions preceded with the purple balloon raising by the doctors which was a token of supporting a very strong and eminent cause on a very special day of Epilepsy Awareness.
Dr. Swayam Prakash rightly stated “This day is special in a way that we being ordinary people can play our part by helping people in need. By following very simple and basic instructions we can help people who might be patient of epilepsy at times it can even save a LIFE”.
People generally are having a different way of approach for such patients. They have a tendency to treat them not like normal humans. This day will definitely bring a change in their perception towards such kind of people who can also be treated as us and lead a normal lifestyle if we all together support them and help them neither complicate their existence in the society that is created by we people.
