“Your Heart is meant to be only healthy….

And on the occasion of World Heart Day 2021,

let us take care of all the hearts around us.”

My Heart's In The Highlands


Farewell to the Highlands, farewell to the North,

The birth-place of Valour, the country of Worth;

Wherever I wander, wherever I rove,

The hills of the Highlands forever I love.


My heart's in the Highlands, my heart is not here;

My heart's in the Highlands chasing the deer;

A-chasing the wild-deer, and following the roe,

My heart's in the Highlands wherever I go.

Farewell to the mountains high covered with snow;

Farewell to the straths and green valleys below;

Farewell to the forests and wild-hanging woods;

Farewell to the torrents and loud pouring floods.


My heart's in the Highlands, my heart is not here;

My heart's in the Highlands chasing the deer;

A-chasing the wild-deer, and following the roe,

My heart's in the Highlands wherever I go.

The World Heart Day 2021: In general the theme of this day commemorated by the World Heart Federation is important as Cardiovascular disease (CVD) remains the world’s number 1 killer, resulting in 18.6 million deaths every year. Covid-19 has only been more heartbreaking for this figure as it has made 520 million people living with CVD.

Well, these days smoking, diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, air pollution, and cardiac amyloidosis are also the major causes of cardiovascular disease.

MEASURES TAKEN DURING THIS DAY :

  • To promote public awareness of cardiovascular diseases, their prevention, and their global impact, World Heart Day is observed and celebrated annually on the 29th of Sept.
  • According to the (WHF)World Heart Federation, “World Heart Day informs people around the globe that CVD, including heart disease and stroke, is the world's leading cause of death claiming 18.6 million lives each year, and highlights the actions that individuals can take to prevent and control CVD."
  • Aiming straightforward to drive action to educate people to control the major risk factors such as tobacco use, unhealthy diet, and physical inactivity, at least 80% of premature deaths from heart disease and stroke could be avoided significantly.”

Also, the Doctors at Fortis Healthcare have asked to maintain a balanced lifestyle, and in light of the pandemic, they urged the public, particularly the youth, to take care of their heart health, get regular screenings and not ignore any significant symptoms of heart-related issues or breathing irregularities.
