    Chukka Ramaiah, whose name has been synonymous with IIT entrance coaching said he had become an expert in mathematics as he was not able to understand other subjects which were only taught in Urdu during the rule of erstwhile Nizam.

    As many used to come to the school teacher to calculate interest on money lent, the octogenarian said their maths teacher used to teach by using lending calculations which helped him better understand the subject as the calculations were very near to real life.

    Addressing the gathering on the issue ‘Intermediate Education in Telangana and Its Trends’ organised by Telangana Resource Centre (TRC) here on Saturday, Ramaiah stressed on teaching children in their mother tongue. Ramaiah said Burgula’s govt brought huge changes in Telangana education by introducing Telugu as medium of instruction.

    Former President inaugurates laser surgery machine at Maxivision Eye Care

    Former President of India, Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam said here on Tuesday that the country’s best talent in the field of medicine should strive to develop innovative technology so that the needy could afford the fruits of modern medicine. On Tuesday, Dr. Kalam inaugurated VICTUS Femtosecond Laser Cataract Surgery machine at Maxivision Eye Care, Somajiguda.

    “I call upon the Maxivision eye surgeons to form a team of experts who can explore the multidimensional uses of Femtosecond laser in treating various eye ailments. We need to utilise the technology and help people who can’t afford modern medical care,” Dr. Kalam said.

    The former President said that the multiple applications of the Femtosecond laser would help doctors treat a host of eye ailments.

    Immediately after the inauguration, the renowned nuclear scientist also interacted with the eye surgeons of Maxivision and enquired about the newly acquired laser surgery machine.

    The officials of Maxivision said that the new machine had been under test from November 2010.

    Already, the eye surgeons had completed close to 450 eye surgeries by using the new laser machine. The surgeons pointed out that not a single case had reported complications after the surgery.

    The VICTUS platform, essentially, helped doctors conduct cataract, refractive and therapeutic procedures of the eye on a single platform. The laser machine would help surgeons perform computer controlled precise, accurate and reproducible incisions compared to current manual procedures. The success rate for such surgery was 100 per cent, doctors added.

    “This is the first such laser machine in the World and I would like to congratulate Maxivision for this accomplishment,” founder and chairman of GVK, G. V. K. Reddy said.

    Chairman of L.V. Prasad Eye Institute, Dr. G. N. Rao, Founder of Maxivision Eye Hospitals, Dr. Kasu Prasad Reddy, Film Producer D. Ramanaidu and several other doctors were present.
