LUDHIANA: Dayanand Medical College and Hospital (DMCH) on Thursday organized an interactive session and hands-on workshop with the students of Jesus Sacred Heart School located in South City, Ludhiana on burns prevention during Diwali.
Dr Sanjeev Uppal, professor and head of plastic surgery, conducted the workshop. He spoke to the students and gave tips to them that how they should burn crackers to avoid any accident.
\"Children, usually, like to burn firecrackers many days before Diwali. Anaars and rockets are very dangerous and children should ignite these crackers with safety\", he said, cautioning the students that all accidents due to fireworks occur as a result of carelessness, negligence and ignorance. But these can certainly be avoided by observing some very simple precautions.
\"A small negligence in the part of kids can turn the celebration into a mishap or personal damage. All of us enjoy the pleasure of light and sound but when disaster strikes the injured has to bear the cross\", Dr Uppal said.
\"With each passing year, incidents of fire burning during Diwali season have been accelerating at an alarming rate. During Diwali, parents need to be more cautious for the kids and should take necessary safety measures to avoid any accident.\"
Dr Uppal also advised students to educate maximum number of people after the session. \"Fire is a good master when it is in our control but it becomes bad master when goes out of control, it does not identify people who come in its contact that weather he/she is a celebrity, a politician, a student, a teacher, and so on\", Dr Uppal said. The students participated in the session and also asked the queries, which were answered by the doctor.
