Russian-Military-Surgeon-Dr.-Vera-Gedroits-With-A-Doodle

Google Salutes Russian Military Surgeon Dr. Vera Gedroits With A Doodle

Google is celebrating the 151st birthday of Russian surgeon Dr. Vera Gedroits. Today’s Google Doodle is different as it carries a thanking note for Vera Gedroits for pushing the world of medicine forward against all odds.

Who was Dr. Vera Gedroits?

Vera Gedroits was born into a prominent family of Lithuanian royal descent in Kiev in 1870. Kiev was then part of the Russian Empire. In her late teens, she went to Switzerland to study medicine and returned to Russia to start her medical career. She first joined a factory hospital as a surgeon.

What was the biggest achievement of Vera Gedroits?

Vera Gedroits became a volunteer during the Russo-Japanese War in 1904 and served the Russian army as a surgeon. She performed complex abdominal surgeries with ultimate precision in a converted railway car. It was an achievement because she worked with limited resources and under the threat of enemy attack. Later the Russian government adopted that procedure as the new standard. She also worked as a surgeon for Russian royals. On returning home, she became a professor of surgery at the University of Kiev in 1929.

Professor Vera Gedroits

As a professor, Vera Gedroits worked on nutrition and surgical treatments. Her research was published in leading medical journals of that time. She was also an author and poet. Her memoir titled “Life” published in 1931 has excerpts from her battlefield experience on the frontlines in 1904. She also authored a collection of poems.

IPL-2021-MI-vs-RCB

IPL 2021 Begins Today With Defending Champion MI Taking On Top Contender RCB

The 14th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2021) begins today at 07:30 pm at MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. In the first match, Mumbai Indians (MI) led by Rohit Sharma will take on Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). It is an interesting match because both are powerful teams. While MI has won the IPL title 5 times and RCB has yet to claim its first title, RCB is also a top contender for the title.

MI vs RCB so far

Both the teams have played a total of 29 matches out of which MI has won 19 matches and RCB had to contend with only 10 wins. They played 27 matches in IPL and 2 matches in the Champions League that has been closed. In IPL, MI defeated RCB in 17 matches and won both the Champions League matches. The first match will be played without spectators to keep audiences and players safe from the pandemic.

IPL 2021 venues

This year, BCCI has selected only six venues for IPL matches and the surprising thing is that no IPL team will get the opportunity to play on its home ground this season. The first of IPL 2021 is at MA Chidambaram Stadium but both the teams are playing their third match at this stadium and both have won one match each. This season, Rohit Sharma is eying for the sixth IPL title and Virat Kohli also seems determined to claim their first title.

Bharat-Bandh-From-6-AM-To-6-PM

March 26 Bharat Bandh: Farmers Stopped Rail And Road Traffic But Shops Remained Open

The all-India strike – Bharat Bandh – called by farmer unions has rail and road traffic blocked at several places but the agitation has been peaceful so far. While many parties are supporting their cause, it won’t be observed in four poll-bound states and Puducherry.

What was the impact of Bharat Bandh?

The 12-hour long Bharat Bandh from 6 am to 6 pm was called to mark the completion of four months of the farmers’ agitation against the three farm laws passed by the center last year. The farmers of Punjab, Haryana, and Uttar Pradesh started their agitation at Delhi’s borders on November 26.

The all-India strike led to the cancellation of more than 30 trains that were stopped by the agitating farmers at different places in Delhi, Chandigarh, Firozpur, and Amritsar. Demonstrators also blocked road traffic on National Highway-9 in the Ghazipur border in the Delhi NCR area. Ghazipur is also an epicenter of the protests. Police have also set up barricades to block the movement of agitators.

Bharat-Bandh-From-6-AM-To-6-PM

Why are traders not observing Bharat Bandh?

Confederation of All India Traders, which claims representation of eight crore traders in the country, said that markets would remain open as it was not participating in the ”Bharat Bandh”. In Delhi, market associations expressed solidarity with the agitating farmers but said that they would remain open as they had already suffered losses during the lockdown.

The government had several rounds of conversations with farmers’ unions but they had failed to get a breakthrough. Also, the farmers didn’t show any leniency towards the government.
