Today a special department meeting was held to honour Mr Kemparama, who has the distinction of being the first person to achieve superannuation in the department of Neurophysiology after having served it with love, dedication and commitment for 29 years.
Faculty, staff and students all came forward to share their experiences with this fine gentleman who has been a model of high character and conduct, an exemplar on work ethic and so the accolades showered were numerous, backed by anecdotes of special moments with him. His family also joined us for this special occasion and a group photo was taken to commemorate this occasion.

The contributions pooled from Faculty, Staff, Students and Alumni were pooled together as a gift for Mr. Kemparama.
Mr. Kemparama has set the foundation of the department strong and has earned the rich tributes. The department is proud of him and wishes him good health and happiness in his journey ahead.

The month long Yoga Appreciation Course organized by the NIMHANS Advanced Centre for Yoga was inaugurated today by Mr. Keshav Desiraju, Additional Secretary, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Govt. of India in the presence of Dr. Satish Chandra, Director and Vice Chancellor of NIMHANS; Dr. V Ravi, Registrar NIMHANS and Professor and Head of Neurovirology; and Dr. BN Gangadhar, Professor of Psychiatry and Program Director, Advanced Centre for Yoga.
Mr. Keshav Desiraju appreciated NIMHANS for its broad outlook in adopting modern and ancient systems of medicine and underscored the need for communicating to the public that mental illness is not something to be ashamed of and is an illness like any other. Dr. Satish Chandra added that NIMHANS has had an Ayurveda unit in collaboration with AYUSH for a long time and that he himself has done research with yoga adjuvant therapy in patients with refractory epilepsy. There are several ongoing research projects in NIMHANS using modern and ancient systems of medicine.
Dr. Satish Chandra then remembered that Dr. T Desiraju, who was an esteemed scientist from the Department of Neurophysiology, had worked on Project Consciousness more than 20 years ago.
All of us at Neurophysiology @ NIMHANS wish Dr. Sujan M.U. and Dr. Shilpa a very happy married life!
