Bangalore,the education hub

Quote:
Today,Bangalores claim to fame comes from its IT behemoths and the lakhs of jobs they have generated.Its said that if you throw a stone in Bangalore,chances are that it will hit an IT professional.Bangalores fame,in fact,has spread far and wide for its IT prowess,and thus has put India on the global map.
However,Bangalores fame as an IT hub has been a recent phenomenon.The truth is that it has been known as an education hub in the south for decades before the IT boom.
True to type,Bangalore has a range of courses to offer: from aerospace engineering to agriculture,from biotechnology to business management,from law to sociology,from economics to nanotechnology,the range is truly impressive.
Which is the reason why you see students from all over India making it their education destination.Whether its from Kerala or Kashmir,or Kolkata to Punjab,you will hear many languages spoken across the city.
The city has been home to the best of research and other institutes:
The famed Indian Institute of Science was set up on the land donated by the Mysore Maharajas,who were visionaries in many fields.Even to this day,the best of scientific minds are attracted to IISc.The Jawaharlal Nehru Center for Advanced Scientific Research (JNCASR) too is another centre known for excellent standards in research.Then there is the National Law School of India University,a trend-setter in the legal education field.Today,it is like a blueprint for several similar law schools of high quality.In the field of management,Indian Institute of Management,Bangalore,has set high standards in management education and is one of the top three management institutes in India.Likewise,there are the reputed International Institute of Information Technology,Bangalore,(IIITB); the National Centre for Biological Sciences,and the well known Institute of Social and Economic Change (ISEC),a research institute in social sciences;the Raman Research Institute;the Indian Institute of Horticultural Research (IIHR); the TIFR Center for Applicable Mathematics;the National Centre for Biological Sciences (NCBS); Institute of Wood Science and Technology (IWST); the CSIR Centre for Mathematical Modelling and Computer Simulation (CMMACS); the Indian Institute of Astrophysics;Centre for Liquid Crystal Research.National Institute of Design and National Institute of Fashion Technology are also located in Bangalore.At the graduation level,colleges offer a spectrum of courses from A to Z biotech to genetics,electronics,fashion,computer applications,hotel management,law,nursing,media and family business.At the post-graduation level,colleges offer Physics,Chemistry,Maths,Commerce,Geography,History,Psychology,Economics,Sociology,to MCA,Social Work,Communications and the like.Engineering itself offers more than 25 options Historically speaking,it was the Mysore Maharajas who gave the impetus to education in the 1880s and to engineering education in the state.Later,the private sector,too,opened many institutes,thus showing the way to many other states which followed suit.Also,religious heads opened institutes of learning,opening a multitude of courses and options for youngsters from all over India.

Students love the city

Quote:
Bangalore is top of the mind for many youngsters when it comes to education.With some of the premier institutions located here and the quality education offered,it has become a favourite educational destination for students.
Principals of colleges said that the city offers various courses from engineering,medical to art and fashion.Interestingly,Bangalore University alone has over 500 colleges affiliated to it.
V G Joseph,Chairman,Garden City Group of Institutions,said that the fee structure and availability of various options has been the reason for the increasing number of students.In our college alone,we have students from 59 countries mostly from the Indian sub-continent besides African countries, he said,adding,Institutions in Delhi and Pune offer similar fee structures;unlike in Bangalore where fee structure varies from one institution to another for the same course.So,students come here. Another reason was the warmth with which Bangalore accepts those from other states.The city is also relatively safe.Plus,Bangalore offers plenty of job opportunities.
K N Balasubramanya Murthy,principal of a wellknown college,attributed national laboratories located in Bangalore as one of the reasons for it to turn into an education hub.We have HAL,NAL,DRDO,all in Bangalore. Murthy said that right from the beginning Karnataka encouraged setting up of industries and private institutions especially in Bangalore.
K Rajanikanth,principal,M S Ramaiah Institute of Technology (MSRIT) said that a lot of initiatives were taken during the time of the Mysore Maharajas,which have yielded fruit now.So also the IT boom in late 80s.Companies located in Bangalore are another advantage,he explained.
Students said that affordability and the weather are the main reasons why they prefer to study here.Donna Joseph,a 4th semester Mass Communication student is a native of Kerala but was born and brought up in Saudi Arabia.I would visit Bangalore often.I like the city;it was through word-of-mouth I learnt that Bangalore had good educational institutions.Also,the fees in some good institutes in place like Pune were very high. She added that it was easier to adjust in Bangalore.
Jobin Babu Varghese,4th semester MBA student chose Bangalore because it offers a lot of exposure to a variety of experiences.The city is cool all the time.This weather is good for studying.Moreover,there are a lot of industries,which offer good learning experience, he said.

Karnataka shows the way

Quote:
The state has been known for its prowess in IT and biotech in recent times.But,for years,its many universities have been offering courses from the conventional to the novel


Karnataka is known today as a pioneer in IT and biotech.But its many visionaries realised the importance of education and hence it is known for its many universities which offer a range of courses.Heres a thumbnail sketch of some of them:
Bangalore University (BU) is considered to be among the oldest in India,having been established in 1886 by The British Government as Central College,and later renamed in 1964 as Bangalore University.University Visvesvaraya College of Engineering (UVCE),famed for its engineers,also comes under BU.
The Gazetteer says the University of Mysore became the first University outside the domain of the English administration in India.It is said to be the sixth oldest university in India.It was established in 1916 by the then Mysore Maharaja.Today,it is well known for its courses that range from Ancient History and Architecture to Jainology,Sericulture,and Polymer science and even a Masters in GIS.Karnatak University,Dharwad,established in 1949,has a range of departments from Linguistics to Folklore,Applied Genetics to Philosophy and Womens Studies.Its PG Centres offer courses in Marine Science and Marine Zoology.Kuvempu University,established in 1987,offers courses as diverse as Wildlife Management,MTech in Nano Science as well as a fiveyear integrated course in Applied Chemistry.Mangalore University offers courses in Geo informatics,as well as those in Ocean Technology under its Ocean Science and Technology Cell.
Karnataka State Open University in Mysore offers distant education programmes for those who wish to pursue their academics while working or want to pursue their education after a break in studies.
The Karnataka State Womens University in Gulbarga also offers unusual courses through its distant education programmes even as it offers conventional full time courses.
Apart from these universities,there is also the University of Agricultural Sciences,which has branches in Shimoga,Bangalore,Hassan and Mandya.
Theres forestry education in Ponnnampet,and sericulture in Chintamani,and the Karnataka Horticulture University in Bagalkot,besides veterinary science at well known colleges in the state.
Besides,there is the Visvesvaraya Technological Institute in Belgaum.
Karnataka also boasts of the National Institute of Mental Health and Neuro Sciences,a premier institute,in Bangalore.
These are only some of the educational institutes and universities in the state.Private players too have played a significant part in attracting students from all over India and abroad to the state in pursuit of education,notably in the field of engineering and medicine,and in general education.
With the emphasis on MBA,private management institutes have also drawn students from far and near.

SRK ad misled us,rue IIPM students

Quote:
Students of the management institute have approached the High Court to get their course fees refunded,saying advertisements featuring the actor misled them.Court surprised that the college is functioning under a Shops and Business Establishment licence

S Shyam Prasad shyam.prasad1@timesgroup.com


Five students who paid anywhere between Rs 4.50 lakh and Rs 11 lakh to join a course titled IIPM School of Business and Economy (ISBE) are blaming Bollywood biggie Shah Rukh Khan for their woes.The course,offered by Indian Institute of Planning and Management (IIPM),Koramangala,turned out to be a correspondence one and,to boot,unrecognised.Even BMTC refused to give them student bus passes.When the students demanded their money back,the college procured a court injunction barring them from entering the college premises.Left with no option,the five students approached the High Court.
Sudha Priya,one of the students,told Bangalore Mirror,We fell for the advertisements that featured Shah Rukh Khan.We thought it must be a very prestigious institution.After we filed the petition in the High Court,Shah Rukh Khan is missing in their advertisements for the last one week. During the first hearing late last month,the court asked how Khan was in the advertisements of the college.The college counsel said the actor was the colleges brand ambassador.

LOANS FROM PRIVATE BANKS

We took student loans from banks to pay for the course.SBI and Canara Bank refused loans and we got them from private banks which charge 14 to 16 per cent interest.It is only when we joined the college that we noticed the irregularities.In January,we came across a Supreme Court order that said colleges in one state cannot be affiliated to universities in another state for regular courses.When we confronted the college authorities,we found it was a correspondence course we were studying.During the exams,you only needed to pay Rs 50 for what was called an open book exam.Students could look into the textbooks and write the exam, said Priya.
Praveen,one of the students who has filed the petition,said,All the students are worried but they are afraid of coming out in the open.BMTC did not even give us student passes.To our horror,we found that students who have passed only II PU and have failed at the degree level were doing the MBA course.College was between 2 pm and 7 pm and most of the lecturers worked on an hourly basis.
The MBA was not recognised and the only option after finishing the course was to work for the college itself.From the receptionist to the dean of the college,everyone turned out to be former students of the college.We five demanded that the fees paid by us and the documents provided be given back.They asked for it in writing.When we gave our representation,they placed it in a civil court and got an injunction barring us from entering the college and resorting to agitations or strikes.
Since January,the students had been waiting for their fees and original documents to be returned.Following the intervention of the High Court last month,they have got back their documents.
We need money to join a regular college.How are we going to pay back the banks A few students have already left without asking for the money.But we need it, said Praveen.One student,Nagarjunan,has approached the consumer court while another,Vijetha,has approached a civil court.

COURT SURPRISED

On Monday,the court was surprised to find that the college was running under a licence obtained under the Shops and Business Establishments Act,and not as an educational institution.Justice S Abdul Nazeer asked how the college was running under the provisions of a business licence.
The respondents include the honorary director of IIPM,Arindam Chaudhuri,the UGC and the principal secretary of the states department of higher education.The court asked the principal secretary to produce the relevant records pertaining to IIPM.
The matter will come up for hearing on July 14.

IIM-B to open second campus in Anekal
Mathang Seshagiri, TNN | Jul 7, 2011, 12.20am IST
Quote:
BANGALORE: The Indian Institute of Management-Bangalore (IIM-B), the country's third oldest IIM, will spread its wings to Anekal.

The state government has leased 110 acres for the second campus of IIM-B at Mahanthalingapura in Anekal taluk (Jigani hobli), which will be the hub of future expansion activities of the 38-year-old B-school.

The new campus __ almost the same size as that of the existing one in South Bangalore __ will host IIM-B's proposed incubation centre aimed at encouraging entrepreneurship besides executive education programmes. Unlike IIM-Ahmedabad and IIM-Lucknow which have opened campuses in other states, IIM-B says it doesn't favour having split campuses in other Indian cities.

"IIM-B is strongly embedded in Karnataka as we believe we can add value when we are in one place. Many chief ministers have invited us to set up campuses in their states but we feel that Karnataka is an exciting place to be and having a campus in Bangalore is good for our economy. Split campuses bring with them the problem of splitting resources, especially faculty," Pankaj Chandra, IIM-B director, told TOI.

The director says the institute will take about two months to firm ups its plans for the second campus. "The new campus will be developed keeping in mind the institute's vision and growth plans for the next 50-100 years. We will definitely be adding more programmes, students and faculty at the new campus. There will be an extensive entrepreneurship activity which will rejuvenate the economy of the state," Chandra said.

Choked for space at its 100-acre campus on Bannerghatta Road, IIM-B was eyeing land in Devanahalli for its second campus as it offered better air connectivity. The state has now leased 110 acres of land for a 30-year period in Anekal, which is on its way to becoming the hub of management education. Management Development Institute-Gurgaon, another top B-School, will open a new campus on a 50-acre land next to the IIM-B. Alliance University __ Karnataka's first private university __ offering a bunch of management programmes, including one-year MBA __ has plans to expand its operations over a 105-acre campus in Anekal taluk.

NRN reveals secret to success

Quote:
BANGALORE: Even the man who founded Infosys believes in a bit of luck when it comes to tasting success, apart from the all-important foundation of a positive character. "It's not only intelligence but chance and character too are necessary for success," said N R Narayana Murthy, chief mentor, Infosys, and chairman of the board, International Institute of Information technology (IIIT-B).

Addressing students at the 11th convocation of IIIT-B on Sunday, Murthy said he has seen many who, inspite of being talented, couldn't achieve success simply because they lacked positive character.

He asked students to be positive in life and utilize their education for the betterment of others. He advised them to use knowledge to fight corruption, illiteracy and other social evils. "Unless you have the question `What can I do' (for the people) in your mind, your education won't even be worth the value of the paper on which your degrees are printed," he pointed out.

A batch of 149 students of both Phd and postgraduate courses were awarded degrees during the convocation.

Thomas Kaliath, Hitachi America professor of engineering (emeritus) said India requires motivated entrepreneurs who can provide employment. He highlighted the need for research in areas with high public utility. The professor elaborated this concept with a few examples, beginning with that of an IIT-Bombay professor and his students who were trying to make two-wheelers more fuel efficient using applied mathematics. The second was about a project where students of three universities in USA were asked to create a stove that could store and run on solar energy. "The amount of smoke taken in by Indian women while operating their traditional stoves is equivalent to smoking two packets of cigarettes. This project has a health aspect to it as well," said Kaliath.

Team Education Times

FUTURE LEADERS: Students from different institutes in Bangalore look forward to a great future

Go wild



Dr Meghana Krishnadas Completed MSc in Wildlife Biology and Conservation

I like forests.It all started with that.I realised that when I visited forests while doing MBBS.I was hooked,and began visiting national parks,observing birds and animals.I also volunteered with the wildlife conservationist,Ullas Karanth.After 12th at KV ASC and joined medicine.Then,doing basic sciences or wildlife was not considered respectable! I dont regret having done medicine at all.It taught me how to deal with people,and interact with rural people.After MBBS,I did rural health for a while in Arunachal (almost the Burma border),then with National Rural Health Mission in Kerala and with Dr Sudarshan in the Biligiri Rangan Hills.Then I decided to study wildlife.I went through the rigorous screening process and joined the two-year MSc course.We study subjects like mammology,forest ecology,community ecology,population biology,behavioral ecology,applied statistics and maths.It is a mix of field based and academic studies.Your performance is based on discussions,giving talks,paper reviews,active practical stuff,for which you go every semester to the forest or the sea (in case of marine biology).I loved my course,its helped me develop as a person.I hope to do my PhD in rain forest ecology.(The MSc course is a collaboration between Centre for Wildlife Studies,National Centre for Biological Sciences and Tata Institute for Fundamental Research)

Digital fun

Nivedita Khandekar II Year,Design for Digital Experience,NID
I did my Engineering (Electronics and Communications ) from Government College,Jabalpur.After that,I worked at TCS for about eight months as an assistant software engineer trainee. But even as I applied for engineering,I knew about NID.After my BE,I wanted to study further.Today,I study Design for Digital Experience at NID. Its a superb course.Its creative and practical.We do quite a lot of things we learn about the design process,we research digital interface.For example,in mobiles,we think about where the menu should go,what info should go on the front screen all this is info architecture on different devices.It could be about mobiles / web/ facebook apps/ desktop apps. Theres a lot of unlearning.There are students from different backgrounds Interior Design / Commerce / Fine Arts / NIFT.Its a good mix and we learn so much from each other.I am doing my internship at HP Labs. If you are interested in something different,this is a good course to join.Its multidisciplinary;but apart from the course,theres so much else to learn.

Right dose



Dr Abhay Kumar G MBBS,Bangalore Medical College

I did my PU from Government PU College,Malur.My parents and sister are doctors.My fathers a paediatricain,my mother a physician and my sister studies surgery at KEM,Mumbai.I always wanted to become a doctor because it meant service to people.I was excited the first day at medical college.About dissection I knew how it would be,and I like it,but it took me a little time to get used to the smell of formalin.In fact,on the first day,a female student fainted and two students left the field of medicine.As an intern now,I like interacting with patients,being part of the team that treats,daily rounds,investigation.We are very busy,as there are 150 students attached to four hospitals.I like rural service,but I wish the facilities there were better.I like the medical field it means serving the people,the learning never ends,so you are always a student,and you come in contact with people.The tough part is when you have to tell parents there is no hope that their child will survive you must counsel and prepare them for it.Future plans I will do general surgery and then may be superspecialise in neurosurgery or cardiothoracic surgery.


Road to research



Lavanya Suresh II Year,PhD in Political Science at Institute of Social and Economic Change (ISEC)


I did my BCom from Bharathiyar University,MA in Public Administration from Madras University,tried for UPSC,was a research assistant in Synergia Foundation,where I did research in socio-political issues.I also am an MA in sociology from Ignou,secured a Junior Research Fellowship (JRF) and joined ISEC after going through the entrance procedure,and the Pre-PhD course.My speciality is looking into decentralisation and natural resources management.ISEC allows a multi-disciplinary approach.At first,I thought Id focus on Panchayat Raj,but I was asked what I was interested in,and I said animals,and thats how my subject cuts across public adminsitration,sociology and ecology.Every six months,you must submit your work,and present papers at the biennial seminar.The beauty of research is that it opens up many options.After my PhD,Id like to be part of policy making.This drives me.So also academics,since you can do both teaching and research.Only the social sciences brings in the human aspect of any situation.It shows where society is heading.Social Sciences is no longer only qualitative,its also quantitative.The methodology uses both to get the reality,a wholistic picture.


future,fab



Colour code



Smitha Prakash V Semester,Painting,Karnataka Chitrakala Parishath



I completed my degree in 2002 in Economics from MES Educational Society.My mind wasnt in it at all.
After graduation,I worked at a call centre for seven years.I grew,but I did not like it.I loved art,Id visit art galleries and painted regularly.My dad was an artist,he was with an advertising agency.
I joined CKP in 2009.Here,age was not a deterrent.I was a little confused in the beginning.I thought I knew a lot of things about painting,and when they began with the most elementary,I was not happy.But later I realised theres a lot more to learn.
In the first year,you learn the basics like object studies.For instance,you take a leaf and study its texture,shape and size.Then there is art history,where they tell you about the world of art.You learn various genres like painting and sculpting.Later,its more specialised the painting techniques and composition.
What is best about CKP is the atmosphere.Art cannot be taught.Since all the teachers are artists,they give you space.They offer the big picture,the outlook.Theres a lot of self realisation that happens there.
There are lots of opportunities for artists now,as people have the money and interest in things beautiful.I do not see myself doing another 9-5 job.I want to dive into the world of art.

Net worth



Dheryta Jaisinghani,II year,MTech,Networking and Communication,IIITB



I started with a diploma course and then made a lateral entry into engineering.Meanwhile,I was also doing BCA which I completed.I had got into IIT Guwahati,but I did not want anything apart from IIT Kanpur.
I later worked for an MNC.I wanted to get out of it because it was a comfort zone you dont get to prove anything.
I was interested in Wireless Censor Networking (WCN) from III Year,and was looking for a platform for it.I love innovation.WCN is a new area and can have applications in health,infrastructure and others.Theres not much work done in it so far.I have many ideas and want to implement them.
Our days are mostly extremely loaded with work.But its fun;if you dont have it,you will miss it.And its not the traditional way of learning.We rely a lot on projects,case studies and spend most of the time in labs.IIIT-B gives a lot of space for cultural activities,and life can get hectic.
I have said no to a corporate job and want to do a PhD and continue with research.Yes,money is important,but theres a world beyond it.Satisfaction is the prime thing.

With 3 new varsities, Bangalore to turn innovative education hub

Quote:
Three trendsetting universities in-the-making in Bangalore, with connections to its technology industry, are likely to set off a makeover of India’s stodgy education system.
The Azim Premji University, on 100 acres in east Bangalore, will confer development and teacher education degrees. The Indian Institute for Human Settlements (IIHS), in 55 acres in Bangalore’s south, has urban transformation at its nucleus. And the Manipal International University, Bangalore, on 100 acres in the northern part of the city, is envisaged as a high-quality international learning centre.

While their cores may vary, all three universities will share a vision of becoming fully inter-disciplinary, highly innovative learning centres.

The development is extraordinary for two reasons, said Anurag Behar, vice-chancellor of Azim Premji University and the CEO of the foundation funding it. “These are particularly hard to pull off because there is no government funding involved, and yet they are non-commercial and self-sustaining,” he said.

The first batch of 150 students at the Azim Premji University, enrolled for master’s degrees in education, teachers’ education and development, will start classes on July 25. Wipro founder and major stakeholder Azim Premji became the country’s biggest philanthropist when he transferred $ 2 billion worth of his company shares to the Premji Foundation which will administer the university. Its stated mission is to connect education to the bettering of the lives of India’s disadvantaged.
IIHS, which proposes to become India’s first national university for innovation, will start academic sessions next year with a master’s programme in urban practice, its director Aromar Revi said.

The programme, as well as bachelor’s and doctorate degrees that the institute will later offer, will cut across a dozen disciplines including technology, design, economics, law, governance and sociology.

“Such integration of diverse streams such as law, governance and the social sciences is rare anywhere in the world,” said Revi. The

master’s in urban practice, for instance, will offer students courses such as contemporary India and environment management.
The funding for building the institute’s hub and several other campuses will come from high net worth individuals and corporations. Nandan Nilekani, the head of the unique ID project, and his wife Rohini have gifted Rs 50 crore to the project. Industrialists from the Mahindra and Godrej groups, as well as top-rung corporate leaders, are involved.

To help set up its five campuses, Manipal International University has roped in T V Mohandas Pai, who recently quit Infosys after many years as its CFO and HR head. The five universities will attempt to free young Indians from bizarre marks cut-offs for college admissions, Manipal Education and Medical Group CEO Ranjan Pai said.

The five social sector universities will make education more accessible through scholarships and reduced fees. “They will be path-breaking in that humanities will be integrated as optional subjects with engineering and medical courses,” Ranjan Pai said. “Within the rigid Indian regulatory system, we will strive for a balanced approach where a medical student can do a management course alongside, or a dental student can take engineering as an elective,” he said. “The focus will be on less theory and more on practical work in the form of real-world training.”
All three institutions will have multi-campus components, and have major plans to scale up.

Manipal University, for instance, has planned five such campuses — in Jaipur, Bhubaneswar, and two other cities in central and western India

City soon to become virtual medical hub

Quote:

With medical treatment and counselling going virtual, major hospitals in the city are fast turning to technology to treat patients sitting in any part of the world. A study by Cable and Wireless Worldwide (a global telecom company) in the UK, India, Singapore, Germany and Spain proves that the trend is catching on in Bangalore as well. The study states that 54 per cent of Indians would prefer medical consultation through video conferencing and telecommunication.

Dr Abhay Singavi, head of Telemedicine at Narayana Hrudayalaya said, "In most cases, patients require consultation and there is no need for physical examination. We can now consult a wide audience through video conferencing and telecommunication and provide medical services."

Narayana Hrudayalaya since 2001 has been providing medical services through video conferencing to remote nodes in the country, and several abroad. Dr Nagendra Swami, president of Manipal Health Enterprises said this technology is a boon, especially in cases where the services of a specialist or super-specialist is required.

"We have 15 hospitals in the country and one in Kathmandu, but a specialist or super specialist is not necessarily required at every single place. We simply share expertise via video conferencing," Nagendra said.
Besides medical consultation and treatment, many psychologists and psychiatrists are now opting to counsel patients through video conferencing applications such as Skype.

"Webcam counselling is as good as direct interaction and helps patient and doctor to be in constant touch without having to travel," city-based psychologist Dr Vinaya Prabha V Baligar said.

While the trend is growing in Bangalore, experts say that the 'game-changer' will be medical services through mobile phones."There already exist certain 3G applications and soon we will have a sea change when we can we access medical facilities through mobile phones," said Nagendra.
Bangalore hospital performs rare biological bone reconstruction

Quote:
It's early days yet, but the state is expected to have its first bone bank at the HealthCare Global Enterprises Ltd (HCG). The hospital has performed the first biological reconstruction for Ewing's sarcoma in India. The patient was a nine-year-old boy from New Delhi. The surgery was performed on Friday.

Dr Pramod S Chindar, ortho oncologist, HCG, performed the surgery under the guidance of Dr Marco Manfrini, senior orthopedic surgeon, Instituto Ortopedico Rizzoli, Italy. Dr Manfrini is a pioneer in this kind of surgery. "Bone for this surgery was imported from Italy, since there are no bone banks here.

Biological reconstruction was performed on the boy, and the human bone was transplanted. We used the bone to fix the composite to the residual femur, avoiding damage," said Dr Chindar.

At a press conference on Friday, Dr BS Ajaikumar, chairman, HCG, said, "The parents of the patient came to us for a second opinion from New Delhi. They had been advised that the best option available was amputation. After a detailed examination, we found that there was the possibility of saving the limb through biological reconstruction."

"Ewing's sarcoma is a malignant tumor. Biological construction after Ewing's sarcoma is diagnosed has been performed for a while, and the cost of the surgery using a bone transplant is cheaper than artificial structures. I have performed 15 similar surgeries in the past, and patients were able to walk in less than a year after the surgery. This is, however, the first time such a surgery has been performed in India." said Dr
Manfrini.

Ewing sarcoma
Ewing sarcoma is a rare malignant tumour, most commonly occurring in males between the years of 10 and 20 years. Bones and soft tissue are affected. The pelvis, femur, ribs and clavicle are most commonly affected. Ewing's sarcoma occurs most commonly during puberty, when bones grow rapidly.
