Students Sensitized to Refrain from Drug Abuse in Wakro

Itanagar ( Arunachal Pradesh ): Drugs have affected the entire world and remaining away from them will help empowerment of youth, Mumbai-based trainer and consultant Dr. EV Swaminathan told hundreds of students of the Medo GS School and Apna Vidya Bhawan (AVB) in Wakro in the Lohit district.

Continuing his tireless efforts to sensitize the youth, he said, “I have been generating awareness on drugs across the country, particularly on easy ways to get rid of drugs. Meditation gives mental strength by releasing endorphins, resulting in ecstatic-filling, which empowers to say no if anyone offers drugs or other addictive substances.”

“Rajayoga meditation corrects innumerable problem, but is effective particularly for rehabilitate drug addicts, mentally ill and phobic conditions,” he said, before demonstrating simple methods to enhance memory reading.

Highlighting scientific concepts of meditation, Tomo Riba Institute of Health and Medical Sciences senior pathologist Dr. Sopai Tawsik said that it helps alleviate all mental and physical afflictions, which are pandemic in present days.

“We may not be addicted to smoking, drinking and drug addiction, but subconsciously addicted to acceptance, shopping, gambling, negative response and emotional love, etc.,” Dr Tawsik said.

“Spirituality is the right option. We should exercise, play games, and be involved in co-curricular activities to avoid addiction, which has gone out of control in the present society,” he said, adding inviting Dr. Swaminathan from Mumbai, aimed at generating awareness among the GenNext for their better tomorrow.

After a three-day motivational campaign in the Lohit district, the team left for Hayuliang and Hawai in the Anjaw district, he said. The campaign is an initiative of the Tezu unit of the Brahma Kumaris in collaboration with the district health society.
