"Nothing is impossible": My philosophy of life
Dr KK Aggarwal
I was given the name Krishan as the day I was born, 5th September, was the auspicious day of Krishna Janmashtami, the birthday of Lord Krishna. 5th September is also celebrated in our country as Teacher's Day.
 
Lord Krishna holds special significance for me...evidently so, because of my given name; but, more importantly, because he has helped me define my guiding philosophy of life.
 
Lord Krishna is always depicted in blue color and with yellow clothes. He always holds a flute in his hands.
 
The blue color, like the sky or the ocean, denotes vastness i.e. something which is much larger than what we can see or perceive. To me, this means nothing is impossible.

Make changes at the personal level to ensure 'freedom' from diseases
Independence Day should also be an occasion to pledge making healthy changes at the personal level and commitment towards eradicating the burden of lifestyle diseases

New Delhi, 14 August 2017: As per statistics, India ranks very high among the nations affected by the rising wave of premature deaths due to non-communicable diseases (NCDs), which account for 60% of all deaths in India. About 5.8 million Indians die due to diabetes, cancer, stroke, heart, and lung diseases each year and 1 out of 4 Indians is at a risk of dying from an NCD before the age of 70. As per the IMA, this Independence Day, one should pledge to make lifestyle changes and take preventive healthcare measures at a personal level, to ensure freedom from the burden of NCDs.
 
A healthy diet, regular physical activity, avoiding the use of tobacco and alcohol, and preventive screening can prevent at least 80% of premature deaths from heart diseases and strokes and 40% of cancer related deaths.
