It is the good news for which we all waited for all these days, and here is the time of Celebration. Tania Pramanik has been released from Apollo Hospital and tomorrow she will be back to Calcutta. She is declared fit and cured. However, she will be on back up medicine for a few more days. It is a great acievement on the part of the Alumni to extend the right help at the right time so that this miraculous result was obtained. We hope to hear directly from Tania within a few days. There is no need of any additional fund right now.

From: "Prof.ArupSarkar" <prof.arup[AT]gmail.com>
This is to inform that Tania Pramanik has reached Chennai today for continuation of her treatment. They will go to Apollo Hospital first and then will decide whether to visit Vellore or not. Her father and uncle accompahnied her. In spite of my repeated request to go by Air they boarded the Corromondol Express.
Further details regarding her treatment is awaited.
Tania expressed her sincere gratitude to all donors without whom her sufferings could have become colossal. She said she wants to further her studies and applied for the Masters Course at BE College. She is now hopeful and energized. She acknowledges the help from the alumni, and said that she will surely communicate to each of them individually when she will be in a position to do so. Now She can get up and walk, but not for a long time. She does not have any net access now. She expressed her interest to talk to Mr. Dasgupta in person over phone, and all others when she comes back to Kolkata. She even said that she will return all unspent money to GAABESU for depositing in the emergency fund, and eager to contribute to that fund in future, when she will grow more. She very well understands the meaning of help, and respectful to the feeling of her seniors.
They have not even taken their mobile phones with them, so at present communication is not possible unless they call using public call booths.

GAABESU Emergency Fund Proposal - Download process document
Several good news on air, with positive steps towards IIEST status of BESUS and the Rebeca 2007 round the corner. With all these pomp and gaiety around, I received a phone call from Sujay Dhar (Arch 89) a few days back with a very sad news.
I feel very sorry to bring this to your knowledge a case of a girl named Tania Pramanik who graduated only in 2006 (Arch), who is now paralyzed and completely bed ridden at her home due to BONE TB and collapse of B9 Vertebra.
She is the eldest of three siblings, brother Pritam appeared in HS and JEE this year, sister Sonia studying in class XI, and her father has no regular income, except having some sporadic tuitions and a sinking practice as an unregistered homeopathic doctor. The parents had an ambition to make their daughter an architect, who, after passing out, will revive the economic condition of the family, arrange for further studies of her sisters and so on. She joined Maheswari and Co. in Calcutta during June 2006 with a salary of 8000.00 and continued till October, when she had fallen in jaundice, and became weak day by day, with a huge back pain. She could never get up again till date. She lost the job, naturally. The X-Ray report revealed a decay of the Vertebral bone, and in January this year she was advised by the local doctor to consult a Spinal Surgeon. Dr. Soumyajit Basu of Park Clinic, Kolkata. She was admitted to Park Nursing home. Then it was discovered that Taniya acquired Bone TB, probably caused by mal-nutrition. The germ has eaten out a major portion of her bones out of the vertebral column, and B9 was critically damaged. Treatment started with applying medicines for TB. She is now at her home, advised to be in bed, and not to move or get up.
Her father came to BESUS to meet the Head of the Department to ask about the possibility of her admission to MTRP Course, when it would be possible for her to walk. Yes, last year she has qualified for GATE too. He also met me, but even upon repetitively insisted, he did not ask for any help. He informed that they have spent about forty thousand rupees so far for his daughter's treatment. He seemed to have no idea about the future course of action except what comes to them. He looked blank.
I request all who like to care to directly contact Taniya Pramanik at her mobile: 9830400393 or write at her address given below:
44/2 Brindaban Mallick Lane
Howrah 711101, WB, India
I remember Tania Pramanik as one who used to come to the college by cycling all the way from Kadamtalla for all the five years in her college days. Now I think I know why she used to come by cycle.
I regret if I cause inconveniences to any one with this mail. I know there are many persons in our great alumni fraternity who can do a lot of things to make a difference. I submit this case to them.

D) Medical Reports
1) Prof Arup Sarkar updates on Mon, 4 Jun 2007 21:24:52 +0530
This is to confirm that $1000 sent by Mr. Ujjal Dasgupta, Louisiana, USA has reached Tania.
She has almost recovered from Bone TB infection, and now preparing to visit Appollo Hospital at Chennai for Spinal Cord Treatment. The were 12 cases of unidentified donors, who sent money without declaration. After my appeal only three responed.
2) "Prof. Arup Sarkar" <prof.arup[AT]gmail.com> at Thu, 10 May 2007 01:29:04 +0530
The case of Tania Pramanik received an overwhelming response from the entire body of the alumni I convey the heartfelt gratitude to all on behalf of Sri Manoj Pramanik, Tania's father. Today I give you some great news, for which we were all waiting for all the time holding our breath. The signs were positive for last few days. Tania was visited by Dr P.K. Bera MBBS MD who had given a second opinion on Dr. Soumyadip Basu's prescription. The physiotherapist working upon Tania got positive results. They used belts and straps so that the spinal cord does not dislocate. And with all these, TODAY, SHE GOT UP FROM BED AND WALKED FOR FIVE MINUTES. Wonderful !!!! Bravo !!!! CHEERS !!!!
I had a long discussion with Manojbabu yesterday. He wants to take Tania to Apollo Hospital or CMC Vellore at Chennai at the earliest, when doctors will allow her to travel. With help from all it should be possible now. I would request Alumni stationed at Chennai to respond at the earliest for local hosting.
Another good news. Her classmates are taking very active role in all decision taking process along with her family. Susmita Sahoo (9830727075) arranged for a checkup with Dr. Kalyan Banerjee, Orthopedic Surgeon of AMRI. Priyanka Kar (9940027433) and Niladri Ghosh (9831301585) are also in constant touch with them. All contemporary alumni are requested to contact these three directly regarding suggestions and discussions.
3) An update from Rajdeep Dutta, 88EE on April 30, 2007
On behalf of GAABESU me and Arup da visited Tania on 29 April evening at her residence at Kadamtala (Howrah). Tania was found bedridden but her eyes were full of life & hope. We conveyed that GAABESU is with her and not to worry about her treatment, we all are with her no matter what.
Arup da as her Professor in BESU had an advantage to assure her and give proper advice for her treatment. Arup da also collected her medical records and bank account details, which he will circulate soon.
Prosenjit Chakraborty (87 EE) given me Rs. 5,400/- in Muscat for her. I have added Rs. 20,000/- to it and handed over to Tania as initial contribution from GAABESU.
I requested whether she likes to say anything to alumni community worldwide on camera. She tried but silently shook her head with little helplessness on her moist eyes. I said never mind, we will convey the appeal on your behalf. Arup da (as her teacher in BESU, I suppose) told her to smile and asked me to take a still photo of her smiling face (posted above). I did. I took her permission to publish that on GAABESU website.
All the best,
Rajdeep (88 EE)

|While we are discussing about monetory help, we should also discuss about quality of the treatment she is receiving. I had taken my mother to CMC, Vellore (Orthopedic dept), where I have seen numerous cases similar to tania, being treated very effectively. Some of the doctors I would recommend there are Dr. Sundarraj, Dr. Daniel, Dr. Titus, all with outstanding qualification and experience. If arrangements can be made for taking Tania to Vellore, she will be in safe hands. Also, the doctors there are not too keen on the fees part. If requested with valid reasons, they are ready to exempt a considerable amount of the hospital expenses. I have spoken to Tania about this. The main problem is carrying her all the way to CMC, Vellore. |
Wishing tania a speedy recovery!
