Safe Trac-keeps track on your safety
SAFETY is becoming a primary concern and Kritilabs has launched Safe Trac to address this issue. This app which is now available in google app store, allows the user to install it for free. The moment the application is launched the person’s movement can be tracked in internet. In addition, the emergency button in the app triggers a message to a registered number informing emergency. The app has also been made available in basic phones that support java. Srikrishna V, who heads overall strategy and business development functions at Kritilabs, said that it was one of the safety initiatives of the firm. “If it reaches out to a lot of people we can make travel safe,” pointed Srikrishna. The app has already been used across 17 states in India. The company plans to enhance the app with features like alerting the nearest police station in times of emergency, auto launching the app at a specific time or place. It is an app in need, indeed!

Happy reading!
‘THE odd things about people who had many books was how they always wanted more” – said Patrica A Mckillip.
For such book lovers and also for the younger generation Chennai Book Fair (CBF) has something new, always, year after year.
The CBF which had a modest beginning with 27 stalls in 1976, has risen to great heights at present with as many as 747 stalls, 10 lakh titles and one crore books. Organised by the Booksellers and Publishers Association of South India(BAPASI), the 36th Chennai Book Fair attracted a lot of fanfare over the years. With several titles in various languages, the book fair attracts people of all ages. Among other things, children’s colouring books for Rs.23 each and maps and globes were selling like hot cakes.
Books, no doubt, open a whole new world, adding spice to life. It was indeed a happy sight to see big crowds throng not only cinema theatres and shopping malls, but also Book Fairs.

A sweet tragedy
CHENNAI had the pride of opening up the first diabetic clinic in India by Dr M Viswanathan. Sadly, Chennai races to become the diabetes capital of India.
Timed precisely, the largest bi-lateral health care event between the UK and India, the Indo-UK Diabetes Summit, kick-started an understanding with the Government of India and the UK Ministry of Health to address the issue of increasing incidence of diabetes in the country.
Keshav Desiraju, Additional Secretary – Health, Government of India cited that signing a MoU with UK on exchange of healthcare best practices was on the cards. Desiraju said that even without an agreement, knowledge transfer between the two countries can begin. The Twelfth Plan identifies the failure of health care in its delivery across the vast country. The publicly-funded National Health Service of UK which offers free health cover at the point of use, provides an interesting emulation. Anna Soubry, UK Minister for Public Health, pointed to UK’s vast experience in the field and said they still had a lot to learn from India, eg: the dedication of trained nurses, who take utmost care of patients.
