AP Governor Launches Free Hearing Aids Distribution

Vijayawada, Sept.25 (Hydnow): Andhra Pradesh Governor Biswabhusan Harichandan today launched the free distribution of hearing aids to persons suffering from hearing loss, hailing from underprivileged sections, at a program organized by Deen Dayal Sravana Foundation, in Siddhartha Auditorium here.

The program was organized to commemorate the birth anniversary of Pandit Deendayal Upadhyaya, a prominent leader in the history of Indian politics and co-founder of Bharatiya Jana Sangh.

Speaking on the occasion, Harichandan said Pandit Deendayal Upadhyaya, was a proponent of the theory of ‘integral humanism’, and values of cultural-nationalism, and that he was a strong follower of Gandhian socialist principles such as ‘Sarvodaya’ and ‘Swadeshi.’ The Governor said Pandit Deendayal Upadhayaya considered it important for the country to develop an indigenous economic model with human beings at the center, which was different from Socialism and Capitalism.

He said, “I am glad to know that the Deen Dayal Sravana Foundation, started the distribution of free hearing aids with the main objective of helping people with hearing loss, to overcome their disability”. He said a hearing is one of the most precious senses of a human being and that hearing loss can be treated if it is detected at an early age. Hearing loss is the most common sensory deficit in humans today and as per estimates by the World Health Organisation, approximately 63 million Indians are suffering from significant auditory impairment. He also said age-related hearing loss occurs gradually and is one of the most common conditions affecting elderly people and early detection and treatment can minimize the loss.

The Governor appreciated the services provided by the Deen Dayal Sravana Foundation, to mitigate the problem of people suffering from hearing loss in Andhra Pradesh and the Telangana States, by free distribution of hearing aids to them.

R. Ramanjaneyulu, Founder & Chairman of Deen Dayal Sravana Foundation, Pathuri Naga Bhushanam, Ch. Adithya, K. Ranga Rajan, Ch. Mallikharjuna Rao, T. Hanumantha Rao, Shaik Haseena, R. Dharma Pracharak, R.P. Sisodia, Special Chief Secretary to Governor, were among those who attended the program. (Hydnow)
