Qawwali concert by the “Sabri Brothers” took place at Tver State Medical Academy on October 23, 2010. 

Qawwali is a form of Sufi devotional music popular in South Asia, particularly in areas with a historically strong Muslim presence, such as Pakistan, especially Punjab and Sindh, and parts of North India. It is a musical tradition that stretches back more than 700 years. The roots of Qawwali can be traced back to 8th century Persia. During the first major migration from Persia, in the 11th century, the musical tradition of Sema migrated to South Asia, Turkey and Uzbekistan. Amir Khusro Dehelvi of the Chisti order of Sufis is credited with fusing the Persian and Indian musical traditions to create Qawwali as we know it today in the late 13th century in India. The word Sama is often still used in Central Asia and Turkey to refer to forms very similar to Qawwali. The poetry of Qawwali is implicitly understood to be spiritual in its meaning, even though the lyrics can sometimes sound wildly secular, or outright hedonistic. Qawwalis tend to begin gently and build steadily to a very high energy level in order to induce hypnotic states both among the musicians and within the audience.

According to the World Bank evaluation of the Russian system of health care (“Russia Health Policy”, 2007, The World Bank) role of nurses and nursing in the health care system is underestimated, misunderstood and thus should be reviewed. In addition, nurses, particularly, chief nurses have lack of knowledge in the field of public health, including modern principles of medical management and organizational theory of health care. It is widely recognized that changes and reforms in health services of countries in the transition period require medical staff in general, and nurses in particular, to be familiar with the health policy of the system in which they work and to use advanced methods of management. During the program, students will acquire theoretical know-how and management skills with an emphasis on leadership development.

The course will be held at Tver State Medical Academy. It will start at 9 am on Monday, November 30, 2009 and end at 3 pm on Friday, December 11, 2009.

19 May Educational Exhibition at RCSC in New Delhi: Emphasis on Merits of Russian Higher Education.


The emphasis on the meritorious qualities of higher education in Russian universities and other institutions, particularly beneficial to Indian students, was reiterated by a visiting delegation at a press conference, jointly organized by RCSC and the Russian Centre of International Education (RCIE) on May 19, 2009. The most advanced one standard-wise and comparably cheaper one cost-wise, the degrees and diplomas recognized abroad, coupled with English apart from Russian, as medium of instruction, were the major highlights and unique features that the delegation underlined regarding Russian higher education. The eight-member Russian delegation, led by Prof. M. N. Kalinkin, Rector, Tver State Medical Academy, participated in the two-day «Educational Exhibition-2009», jointly organized by the RCSC and RCIE, for the benefit of Indian students seeking admission to higher education in various specialties such as medicine, engineering, aviation, polytechnic, electronics, computer science, etc., under different Russian universities and other higher educational institutions in Russia. Underscoring the steadily-growing popularity of higher education in Russia, Prof. M. N. Kalinkin, Rector, Tver State Medical Academy, said that Russian universities attract a large number of foreign students from all over the world every year. So far, over 90, 000 foreign students, among them 40, 000 Indian students, have successfully completed higher educational courses in Russia. He added that medicine, engineering, Russian language and humanities are the subjects mainly chosen by foreign students. Apart from having highly qualified scientists and professors, the institutions offer much cheaper cost of higher education than in countries such as the US, the UK, etc. The members of the delegation stressed that Russian medical universities have been rated at a high level by UNESCO and WHO. Bilateral economic and commercial ties between Russia and India in such fields as space research, engineering, electronics, bio-chemistry, technology, medicine, etc., require a large number of well-trained personnel, and as such higher education obtained by Indian students in Russia will further enhance bilateral cooperation and promote mutually-beneficial partnership.
