Mr. Pramod Lele, CEO of Hinduja Hospital in his address said that nurses of Hinduja Hospital are extremely dedicated to their work but a more patient centered approach is needed to achieve the optimum level of patient satisfaction. Mrs. Phalakshi Manjrekar, the Director Nursing of Hinduja Hospital unfolded the Nurses Day theme. She focused on the fact that nurses are engaged in innovative activities on a daily basis to improve patient care outcomes and to reduce costs to the health system. She added that expert knowledge and nursing research are at the heart of many of the new roles which nurses take up, as well as the basis for traditional nursing care. But it is the combination of innovation and vitality that allows nurses work to take flight.

Pallekele International Cricket Stadium – Enjoy the Excitement

Often referred to as the ‘Pearl of the Indian Ocean’, Sri Lanka is a tropical paradise. A haven of natural beauty and sunny island charm, it is the ideal destination for leisure and relaxation. The tropical island maybe famous for sapphires, tea and beautiful beaches, but if the country had one passion, it would be cricket. The Sri Lankan cricket team is one of the highest ranked cricket teams of today, and the nation has spared no expense developing local cricketing infrastructure.

The Pallekele International Stadium was officially opened in November 2009, but the first international match played here was between Sri Lanka and the West Indies, which took place nearly a year later. The grounds also served as one of the official venues for the cricket World Cup played during the early months of 2011. The Pallekele International Stadium is located in Kandy and was renamed the Muttiah Muralitharan International Stadium in honour of the legendary Sri Lankan bowler, Muttiah Muralitharan. It is a pleasant half hour drive from the city centre. During the drive one passes by the famed man-made Kandy lake that marks the centre of the city, before moving onto winding hill roads.

The scenic drive includes crossing a bridge spanning the mighty Mahaweli River, and a long, canopied stretch past the Sri Lanka International Buddhist Academy, before turning into the plush Kandy Industrial Park. The stadium is hailed as one of the most beautiful cricketing venues in the world, with majestic mountains forming the stadiums backdrop. The crisp mountain air along with the temperate Kandy weather makes it the ideal place to relax and enjoy a good game of cricket.

There is more to Sri Lanka Tourism than beaches and nature parks. The island is full of little gems, and rewards tourists who go off the beaten track. Enjoy a day of Sports in Sri Lanka whilst the atmosphere inside the stadium crackles with tension and energy. Local bands ensure that there is never a dull moment for the spectators, even during a lull in the game.
