JMA Pilani Celebrates International Day of Happiness with a Talk on COVID Vaccine
JMA Pilani has established a rich tradition of observing various days and festivals of international as well as national importance on a regular basis. Due to COVID-19, with schools closed keeping the children engaged academically and culturally has become a serious challenge for many educational institutions in India today with a few exceptions such as JMA Pilani. International Day of Happiness (March 20) is a global day to recognize the importance of happiness in the lives of people around the world.
Philosophers debated the nature of happiness for thousands of years, but scientists have recently discovered that happiness means different things. Three major types of happiness are high life satisfaction, frequent positive feelings, and infrequent negative feelings. “Subjective well-being” is the label given by scientists to the various forms of happiness taken together. The five skills namely Savor, Thank, Aspire, Give and Empathize in short called S.T.A.G.E. framework are said to Increase your Happiness. In a nutshell Happiness = Letting Go + Acceptance + Gratitude.
Since the first World Happiness Report by United Nations in 2012, four different countries have held the top position: Denmark in 2012, 2013 and 2016, Switzerland in 2015, Norway in 2017, and now Finland in 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021. Out of the 149 countries surveyed in 2021, the remaining countries in the top ten are Iceland, Denmark, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Sweden, Germany, Norway, Luxembourg and New Zealand. According to the report with Pakistan at 105, Bangladesh at 101 and China at 84, India stood at 139.
With all COVID protocols strictly in place, on 20 Mar 2021, JMA Pilani organized a function to celebrate the Happiness Day. Principal Mrs Booma shared the significance of the day and invited Mrs Anuradha Soni who teaches Biology as a mission with passion at JMA Pilani to deliver a talk on how the COVID 19 Vaccine works. It goes without saying that today across the world one and only thing which brings happiness to one and all is COVID 19 Vaccine.
Dr Anuradha’s talk highlighted the spike proteins and its buildup, DNA inside an adenovirus, spotting the intruder, making antibodies, stopping the virus, killing infected cells, remembering the virus. mRNA vaccines may be new, but the technology is not as mRNA vaccines have been studied for influenza, Zika, and rabies. There was a loud round of applause when she mentioned that the immune system also contains special cells called memory B cells and memory T cells that might retain information about the corona virus for years or even decades.
