Multiple Sclerosis Day: street plays to spread awareness

Multiple Sclerosis Day is observed on the last Wednesday in the month of May. This year May 29, 2013 is being observed as MS Day.

The Chennai Chapter, in creating awareness of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) has chosen to convey the totality of the disease through “Street Play” (Veedinadagam).

MS also known as “The Crippler of the Young Adult” is one of the most debilitating disease striking people in the prime of their lives – age group 18 to 40 years. 

As the cause remains still unknown, the cure has eluded medical science.

MSSI Chennai Chapter is having the street play ( veedinadagam) enacted at the following venues by Theatre Y.

1.    May 28, 2013  – Nageswara Rao Park, Luz at 5.00 pm

2.    May 29, 2013 – street play (Veedinadagam): Citi Centre, Radhakrishnan Salai, Mylapore  at 5.30 pm. Celebrities from the film world will be present.

A human chain showing solidarity in the “Fight against MS” will be formed after the play.
