The students of class VIII of Pallavi Model School Bowenpally conducted a virtual session to mark National Epilepsy Day on November 17. In India, the day is observed every year as to spread awareness amongst the community about Epilepsy.
Students prepared and presented PPTs which highlighted the cause, effect and controlled care of this neurological disorder. Epilepsy is a disease in which the patient has untimely tremors and he/she loses consciousness for some time.
Such a condition is caused by unbalanced electrical activity in the brain. Epilepsy usually occurs in childhood and if not treated in time, its symptoms start appearing repeatedly.
Children spoke about the fact that Epilepsy is caused by the effect of genes.
The students also brought out the fact that lavender is the international colour for epilepsy and is also a colour that symbolises solitude. The goal of Purple Day is to increase general public awareness, to reduce the social stigma endured by many individuals with the condition.
According to World Health Organization (WHO), about 50 million people have epilepsy across the world, out of which 80 per cent of people are living in developing countries.
