Community Service for Dan Utsav : Spreading the Millet Magic

On the occasion of Dan Utsav, Team Sanjhi-Sehat, dedicated to combating Diabetes and Hypertension among the underserved, orchestrated a transformative session at Gurudwara Singh Sabha, Dhapai Road, Amritsar. The star of the event was Ms. Poonam Sharma, a disciple of Dr. Khader Vali, renowned as the Millets Man of India.

The event commenced with the distribution of free millets, skillfully prepared and generously donated by Ms. Poonam. The aroma of freshly prepared millet smoothies filled the air, drawing a massive and eager gathering.

Ms. Poonam Sharma, a proud resident of Amritsar, took the stage and unfolded her personal journey. She shared a poignant tale of grappling with hormonal issues at a tender age and the remarkable turnaround she experienced through the incorporation of millets into her life. The twist in the narrative? The smoothies she introduced as medicine, transforming the way attendees perceived healthcare. Intriguingly, most attendees arrived with the expectation of receiving conventional pills but left pleasantly surprised, having sipped on a medicinal millet smoothie. For many, it was a groundbreaking experience, perhaps their first encounter with medicine in such a natural, flavorful form.
