Film: 'The Salt Stories'
(84 min; 2008; b/w & colour; Hindi/English/Gujarati and with English subtitles)
Director: Lalit Vachani

Recipient of the Best Documentary Award, MIAAC 2009; and 2nd Prize, Film South Asia, Kathmandu 2009

In 1930, a group of Indians led by a frail, elderly man marched a distance of 241 miles. They marched for salt. Mahatma Gandhi was able to craft an anti-colonial, nationalist movement around the most basic issue of livelihood: the right of Indians to make and consume their own salt. Set against the backdrop of Gandhi’s original journey, this documentary is a road-movie about issues of livelihood in a modern, globalising India. It is a documentary about ‘the salt stories’ of our times.

Balance and Fall Prevention
Illustrated lecture by Dr. Rajesh Malhotra, Chief, Jai Prakash Narayan Apex Trauma Centre and Head, Department of Orthopaedics, All India Institute of Medical Sciences

Chair: Dr. Ashwini Kumar

About 1 out of 3 persons above the age of 65 years and 1 out of 2 of those more than 80 years of age fall at least once a year. A fifth of them need medical treatment and 10 per cent sustain fractures. These injuries become a major cause of death, hospitalization or disability. The various risk factors for the fall include the patient-related as well as environment related factors. The prevention of falls and subsequent fractures can mitigate a lot of suffering for the elderly and save money as well as lives. The presentation will address some of these issues
