inaugurated by Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, Founder Art of Living on 28th
September, 2021 in a virtual ceremony. Pujya Gurudev spoke on the importance of
blood sugar monitoring and a well-balanced life with appropriate diet, exercise,
stress relief, and meditation for managing diabetes.
The RSSDI National President, Dr. Banshi Saboo, reiterated that “the mission of
RSSDI was to reach every village in India and make India, free of diabetes
complications while reducing the burden of diabetes itself.” Dr. Balkrishna
Inamdar, Advisor to Rotary India Medical Projects, and Mr. Shekhar Mehta,
President Rotary International also stressed upon the significance of blood sugar
testing as India was the diabetes capital of the world and remarked that Rotary India
was happy to collaborate with RSSDI for this endeavor.
With luminaries lighting up the screen, the history-creating event towards the world
record to conduct the maximum number of blood sugar tests in a single day across
10,000 sites in India was applauded by all dignitaries, guests of honour, and special
invitees from RSSDI, International Diabetes Federation, Indian Medical Association,
Rotary International, Rotary India, Public Health Foundation of India, C-DOC, Beat
O collaborators and the Defeat Diabetes Task Force and emphasized as the need of
the hour. The increasing burden of diabetes in India and the close association of
diabetes with cardiovascular disease, importantly poor outcomes with diabetes and
COVID-19 infection and increased death, have been recognized as a massive public
health burden. A large proportion of the Indian population, nearly 57%, remained
undiagnosed as per the experts addressing the audience, making it essential to screen
the India population, inherently vulnerable to type 2 diabetes mellitus.
