Passing out batch of students from the College of Nursing & Allied Health Sciences, Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Medical Sciences, Whitefield, Bangalore offered their hearts full of gratitude, presenting a Musical Offering on Monday, the 9th July evening at the Sanctum Sanctorum in Prasanthi Nilayam.
The College of Nursing & Allied Health Sciences was instituted by Bhagawan in the year 2008, with an aim of providing ideal healthcare. As per His often repeated tenet, “Education, Health and Water should be free for all”, this course is offered completely Free of Cost.
The Institute aims at producing ‘Humane Healthcare Professionals’ who value patient care more than commercial gain, and who are equipped with the best of skills required to guarantee best clinical outcomes.
College of Nursing at SSSIHMS is affiliated to Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences, Bangalore. The first batch was commenced on Sept 1, 2008. The college conducts 4-year Programme in Nursing and every batch is permitted an intake of 40 students.
On the 6th July evening, presenting their musical offering, this grateful bunch of students started off in a grand style taking the audience to a flashback, recalling the golden memories of the day, when the seeds for the course was sown by Bhagawan. Hailing the noble profession, declaring of the would be inception of a Nurses Training Institute, Bhagawan spoke, on the occasion of Guru Purnima in 2008, thus:
There is more work to be done because of the ever-growing number of patients seeking relief. Hence, we need many more nursing personnel. We are asking for nurses not for Swami’s sake but for the sake of the nation. There is a Sanskrit saying: “Jananee janmabhoomischa swargaadapi gareeyasi” The mother and the Motherland are greater than Heaven itself). Hence, such sacred activities must be spread all over the country. It is not easy to make available such facilities for people in remote and isolated villages. Because in this village this magnificent hospital has been established, it has been possible to provide relief to a very large number of poor villagers.
Having set the stage for the programme, with Bhagawan’s epochal Divine Declaration echoing in the vast Sai Kulwant Hall, the girls sang paeans to their Beloved Bhagawan, presenting a variety of songs that lasted for 45 minutes.
Beginning with an invocatory song to Lord Ganesha and Bhagawan, they went on singing a Purandaradasa composition in Kannada, set to Raga Nadanamakriya, and the song was DasanamAdi koyanna. Next number was the famous “Lagaan” number, “O Paalan Haare…” that was followed by a Tamil number set to Raag Sindhu Bhairavi , offering gratitude to Mother Easwaramma. An English composition adapted from the famous Carpenters followed; this piece was a celebration of God in our lives, and the song was, such a feeling’s coming over me…there is wonder in almost everything I see…The penultimate number was in Telugu, set in Raag Kapi, “Karunaswaroopa Bhagawan, Premaswaroopa Bhagawan…”before the final song of Gratitude, “Dhanyavaad Prabhu Dhanyavaad Prabhu…”.
Each of these songs was preceded by an intro followed by greetings offered at the Sanctum Sanctorum by different batches of students.
