The event felicitated diabetics who have reversed diabetes by passing the Glucose Tolerance Test (GTT)
Pune - Freedom from Diabetes, which has brought hope, happiness and good health to thousands of individuals through its proven Diabetes Reversal Programs organized Muktostav 2019 - the Festival of Freedom on 8th December, at Bal Gandharva Ranga Mandir, an annual program for diabetes patients.
Muktotsav is a festival which brings you an experience of insights, inspiration and joy that continues to stay with you for the entire year. More than 100 diabetic patients who have cleared the Glucose tolerance test (GTT) from Pune as well as Mumbai, Delhi, Karnataka, Bangalore, Jharkhanad and Bangladesh were honoured at the event at the hands of Dr. Banshi Saboo, MD. PhD, President, Research Society for the Study of Diabetes in India (RSSDI), Swanand Kirkire, Lyricist & Singer, Arun Govil, Actor, Mrinal Kulkarni, Actor and more.
The program started with a soulful instrumental music from renowned artists - Pandit Ramdas Palsule, Dilip Kale and Amar Oak. This was followed by a special session on ‘Learned Optimism & Mental Health in Diabetics’ by Dr. Pramod Tripathi culminating with the felicitation ceremony.
A new diabetics friendly book on ‘Daals and Grains’ was launched by Gayatri Tatke, Cooking Expert and Manager of Mentors. This book gives a variety of possibilities, new ideas and combinations using different kinds of dals and grains for diabetics.
Dr Pramod Tripathi, Founder, Freedom from Diabetes says, “It is a matter of concern that India is on its way to become the diabetes capital of the world, especially Type 2 diabetes which can be avoided and reversed if diabetics make changes in their diet and exercise regime. Through Muktotsav, we aim to celebrate the success of those diabetics who have freed themselves from medicine or insulin and also passed the GTT test. Freedom from Diabetes and Muktotsav which started as a small initiative has now turned into a people’s movement with people not only from Pune but across India making changes with diet and exercise to become diabetes free and inspiring others.”
