Guwahati, India, September 28, 2016: NorthEast United FC has announced its association with GNRC to become its official medical partner. The football club has been gearing up for the upcoming Hero ISL 2016 and would be playing their first match against Kerala Blasters on 1 October.
Further commenting on the association, Ardeshir Jeejeebhoy, Director of Football for NEUFC said, “It was paramount for us to secure the services of a reputed medical partner, in order to ensure optimum health and fitness levels of our athletes. GNRC is a name to reckon, when it comes to soliciting top-notch medical services. Although injuries are unavoidable when we hit the fields, it is reassuring to know we can rely on the expertise and experience of GNRC, to ensure our athletes remain fit as a fiddle.”
As a super-specialty healthcare center in North East India, GNRC was established by neurologist, Dr. Normal Chandra Borah in 1987. On the association, Dr. Nomal Chandra Borah, Chairman cum Managing Director, GNRC Hospitals said, “On behalf of GNRC, I would like to thank everyone at NEUFC for providing us the opportunity to serve them as medical partner. Sports not only serve to bind people and nations, it has also consistently allowed North East India to make the nation proud – be it in gymnastics or boxing or soccer. As conscionable members of society, GNRC has always supported endeavors that lead in the direction of our guiding principle – ‘Health for All and Smiles for All.’ Hence, it is appropriate that we continue to further this cause – through the platform of the Indian Super League (ISL). As the third season of ISL kicks off, I convey my best wishes to all participants and particularly those representing the North East region.”

01/10/2016 Auditorio, Instituto Cervantes a las 7:00 p.m.Lectura dramatizada: “El otro”, “El libro de arena”, “Tigres azules” de Jorge Luis Borges, dirigido por Varoon P. Anand Sinopsis: Tres cuento clásicos de Borges conectados a imágenes de la India relatan historias fantásticas y sobrenaturales se presentaran a cargo del group de teatro Kaivalya Plays de forma única. En “El otro”, Borges, ya anciano, relata el encuentro acaecido con un Borges joven en la ciudad de Cambridge. El narrador de “El libro de arena” recibe de manos de un extraño vendedor el libro, de peso sorprendente y que por título lleva escrito en el lomo: Holy Writ. El vendedor le explica el nombre con que él mismo lo adquirió de manos de un mendigo: “ni el libro ni la arena tienen principio ni fin”. Borges intenta encontrar la primera página, pero es imposible. En “Tigres azules” un hombre ha admirado toda su vida al tigre. Recibe la información de que se han avistado tigres azules cerca de una aldea de la India y parte hacia allá con el propósito de contemplarlos con sus propios ojos. (+)
Dramatised reading: “The other; The book of sand; Blue tigers” by Jorge Luis Borges, directed by Varoon P. Anand Synopsis: Three classic tales of Borges connected to images of India share fantastic and supernatural plotlines presented by the theater group Kaivalya Plays. “The other” is a short story in which the narrator, Borges, encounters a younger version of himself. In “The book of sand”, an unnamed narrator is visited by a tall Scots Bible-seller, who presents him with a very old cloth-bound book that he bought in India from an Untouchable. It is emblazoned with the title “Holy Writ”, below which title is emblazoned “Bombay”, but is said to be called “The Book of Sand” because “neither the book nor the sand has any beginning or end”. Blue Tigers combines two of Borges’s favourite subjects – tigers and the metaphysical world. The action is set in North India (which bears more than a passing resemblance to Kipling’s India). Early in 1904, the narrator (a university professor in Lahore) receives news that a new variety of tiger, a blue tiger, has been discovered in a village some miles distant from the Ganga. When he gets there, a series of events take place that must rank among Borges’s finest moments as a fantasist. (+)

Inauguración 05/10/2016 Sala de exposiciones, Instituto Cervantes a las 7:00 p.m.Exposición: “Línea Negra. Paisajes sagrados de la Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta” por Coque Gamboa Sinopsis: Exposición fotográfica sobre la Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, una de las montañas costeras más altas del mundo, con una increíble diversidad ecológica y climatológica. Además de su extraordinaria biodiversidad, hoy día el macizo montañoso está habitado por cuatro grupos indígenas que descienden de las poblaciones pre-coloniales y que consideran este paisaje como su tierra ancestral. Este espacio sagrado está delimitado conceptualmente por la “Línea Negra” lo que incluye un área geográfica aproximada de unos 22,000 kilómetros producto de una compleja serie de interrelaciones creada por los ka’dukwu, los lugares sagrados más importantes que son donde los especialistas religiosos llevan a cabo varios rituales y ceremonias. La montaña se percibe como el centro del universo, un huso que atraviesa los nueve niveles de la creación y del cual se desprendieron todos los hilos que conectan a todas las criaturas paridas por la Gran Madre. Los mamus o sacerdotes indígenas, responsables de los rituales, rinden tributo a la gran madre y a todos los ancestros que habitan este paisaje sagrado, y atienden a su llamada para así no desviarse de las leyes originarias que rigen el comportamiento desde tiempos inmemoriales.
Exhibition: “Black Line. Sacred Landscapes of Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta” by Coque Gamboa Synopsis: Photo exhibition about the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, a pyramid-shaped mountain range separate from the Andes extending over approximately nineteen thousand square kilometers with altitudes ranging from sea level to glacier-covered peaks within thirty eight kilometers of the coastline. The altitudinal variation, high numbers of endemic species, and isolation from the Andes chain make it one of the most biodiverse places in South America and the world. The massif is currently inhabited by four indigenous groups descended from pre-colonial populations who consider this mountainous landscape their ancestral homeland. This space is conceptually delimited and encompassed by the “Black Line” encircling a geographic area of approximately 22,000 square kilometers produced through the complex interrelationships created by the Ka’dukwu, the most important places and areas where religious specialists conduct various rituals and ceremonies. The mountain is considered to be the center of the universe, a spindle running through all nine levels of creation from which sprung all the threads connecting every living creature spawned by the Great Mother. In these rituals and ceremonies, the mamus or indigenous priests, pay tribute to the great mother and all the ancestors inhabiting this sacred landscape. In doing so, they heed the call of the Mother and their ancestors so that they may not wander away from the original laws set down since time immemoria.

The new plant will produce 10,000 metric tons of feed per month and feed on average 75,000 cows per day.
New Delhi, September 28, 2016 – Cargill inaugurated a new Rs.88 crore feed plant in Bathinda, Punjab in the presence of the Honorable Union Minister of Food Processing Industries, Smt. Harsimrat Kaur Badal and the Honorable Deputy Chief Minister of Punjab, Shri Sukhbir Singh Badal. In India, where the population is largely vegetarian, dairy is a primary source of protein. Milk-based paneer, ghee, yogurt and sauces are all staples of daily life, making the country both the largest consumer and the largest producer of dairy in the world. This new plant is a testament of Cargill’s commitment to support the growth and development of the booming dairy industry and its farming community in India.
It will provide a consistently high-quality, nutritious and safe feed to dairy farmers in Punjab, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan. The plant will produce 10,000 metric tons of feed per month and feed 75,000 cows per day.
Honorable Deputy Chief Minister of Punjab, Shri Sukhbir Singh Badal said, “We believe this new dairy feed plant will provide quality feed and introduce latest know-how which will help our dairy farmers earn better yields and contribute to the progress of Punjab. We expect Cargill to share their global experience with the region’s farmers which will help put Punjab on a global map with other leading model dairy regions across the world.”
In 2008, Cargill’s animal nutrition business began working with dairy farmers in the country to optimize farm management techniques and boost milk productivity. Every week, the company sent a team of veterinarians and sales personnel to share its expertise conduct farmer group meetings and raise awareness of ways to increase productivity. Working with dairy operations of all sizes – from five cows to 100 – Cargill teams educate nearly 75,000 farmers on nutrition and farm management best practices.
Achyuth Iyengar, Managing Director for Cargill’s complete feed and nutrition business in India stated: “We have been catering to the Punjab dairy farmer for more than 10 years now. The continued trust of the dairy farmers in our feed products has encouraged us to build and invest in this new facility. Through this plant, we will be able to expand our supply of high-quality, safe and nutritious feed and services in the state of Punjab.”
Cargill prides itself as a company that places the safety of its employees and contractors above all else. During the 14 months of construction, a team comprising of nearly 400 employees and contractors clocked in more than 10,00,000 safe working hours with zero injuries.
“I’m so proud of this remarkable team and their ability to plan, train and execute on our company’s safety procedures. Through their relentless focus, nearly 400 people were able to return home safely to their families every day during this project,” said Jamie Dolynchuk, global business development director for Cargill’s premix and nutrition business.
In a country that depends on dairy, Cargill’s expertise and dedication to India’s milk industry is clear. The company continues its innovative efforts to provide the best solutions for farmers, their herds and their customers.
Cargill provides food, agriculture, financial and industrial products and services to the world. Together with farmers, customers, governments and communities, it helps people thrive by applying its insights and 150 years of experience. Cargill has 150,000 employees in 70 countries who are committed to feeding the world in a responsible way, reducing environmental impact and improving the communities where they live and work.
