Transasia supports ‘Nayaab Lamhe’ musical concert by Padmashree Pankaj Udhas in aid of thalassemic children

Date : 02 Mar, 2019

As a part of its Corporate Social Responsibility, for the benefit of thalassemic children, Transasia Bio-Medicals Ltd., once again joined hands with PATUT, to organize ‘Nayaab Lamhe’, a musical concert by the hugely acclaimed Padmashree Pankaj Udhas, on 2nd March 2019 at Mumbai.

For over ten years now, Transasia and Parent Association Thalassemic Unit Trust (PATUT), have been actively associated in the commitment to the cause of thalassemic children.

With a purpose higher than just business, Transasia, India’s leading In-vitro Diagnostic Company operates on a simple conviction, to be available to Doctors and in-turn their patients at all times, with quality and affordable diagnostic solutions that offer early and accurate results for timely treatment of diseases. Transasia’s instruments, of international standards, have helped accurately diagnose thalassemia in innumerable patients across the country, giving them a ray of hope. Over the last two years, Transasia has organized awareness camps in more than 12 colleges across Mumbai and conducted screening tests on more than 2500 students. Infact, PATUT and Transasia have together organized numerous dedicated initiatives such as blood donation drives, equipping diagnostic centres with the required instruments and contributing to fund-raising activities for the benefit of thalassemic children.

PATUT is a non-profitable organization set up by parents who leave no stone unturned to ensure that their thalassemic children get a second chance at life.  Through its association with various hospitals, PATUT arranges and mobilizes funds for Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT), a last resort procedure for most thalassemic children. So far, PATUT has arranged funds and sponsored 150 BMTs in the last five years.

As the President of PATUT, Ghazal maestro Pankaj Udhas has been showcasing his talent for the cause of thalassemia for over three decades. Infact, his relentless contribution to both the fields has been duly honored by the Government of India with the prestigious Padmashree award! 

At the ‘Nayaab Lamhe’ concert, Pankaj Udhas set the mood with his soulful, romantic and timeless ghazals.

Speaking at the occasion, Suresh Vazirani, Chairman & Managing Director, Transasia said, “I am immensely proud of Transasia’s continuing ten year old association with PATUT, Smt. Jasmine Majethia and Padmashree Pankaj Udhas in aid of a very noble cause of thalassemic children. From helping four children in 1982 to establishing centres for spreading awareness, detection, counseling and prevention of thalassemia, the impact of the good work done by PATUT has spread far and beyond. At Transasia, we believe in operating with a higher purpose, with an unwavering focus on our customers and the patients they serve. Thalassemia is a cause we very closely associate with. We are glad that with our hematology range of analyzers, we are able to contribute to the early and accurate diagnosis of thalassemia and its associated adversities, giving the patients a chance for timely treatment.”

“We are proud that as we mark our 40th anniversary, we are able to contribute to this cause in ways more than one. Nothing motivates me more than the fact that my entire Transasia family resonates this intent”, he further added.

More than 400 pathologists from across the city, attended the event on behalf of Transasia. Dr. V. H. Juvekar, General Manager, Haffkine Biopharmaceutical Corporation Ltd. remarked, “Thalassemia is a growing concern for the country. Today, 35-45 million Indians, are carriers of beta-thalassemia, which translates to 3-4% of India’s population. It is heart rending to see so many young children, loosing their lives to the condition, for want of a Bone Marrow Transplant. Transasia and PATUT are doing a splendid job, to reach out to these children. I am thankful to Transasia for giving me an opportunity to be a part of this wonderful evening of soulful ghazals by Pankaj Udhas and to see his dedication towards this noble cause.”
