New Delhi: TV actor Sanjit Bedi, who won million of hearts through his character Dr Omi of TV show “Sanjeevani”, died on Wednesday morning due to a viral condition of the brain, his friend and actor Karanvir Bohra said.

Karanvir, who featured with the deceased in TV series “Kasautii Zindagii Kay”, said Sanjit had been in hospital for the last one-and-half months and was battling with his condition for quite some time.

“He was in the ICU of Bombay Hospital here for the past one-and-half months. He had a brain virus for the last year-and-a-half. He breathed his last this morning and his cremation was performed in the afternoon,” Karanvir told IANS over phone from Mumbai.

Sanjit appeared in a slew of shows like “Jaane Kya Baat Hui”, “Thodi Si Zameen Thoda Sa Aasman” and “Kyaa Hoga Nimmo Kaa”, among others. However, the actor was missing from the scene for quite some time. Sanjit, in his late 30s, is survived by his wife.

Karanvir, who is currently seen in “Qubool Hai”, recalled how they found friendship on the sets of TV show “Kasautii Zindagii Kay”.

“We got to know each other from ‘Kasautii…’ and we came really close. We were in touch since then. The man was full of life,” he said.

Karanvir also feels a void has been created in his life and he will take very long to come to terms with the loss.

“Imagining him to be silent and not being there will be weird,” he said.

Karanvir said, “Sanjit went abroad for some work and after he came back he started practising yoga.”

New data show a significant increase in the incidence of global cancer. The International Agency for Research on Cancers, part of the World Health Organization, estimates a rise in new cases of cancer to more than 18 million, including 9.6 million deaths this year.

The report that covers 36 types of cancer in185 countries, finds one in five men and one in six women worldwide develop cancer during their lifetime and more men than women die of the disease. It says nearly half of the new cases and more than half of cancer deaths this year occurred in Asia, in part because nearly 60 percent of the global population lives there.

The data show lung and breast cancers, followed by colorectal, prostate, and stomach cancers, are responsible for the highest numbers of new cases globally. It cites lung cancer as the leading cause of death, accounting for 1.8 million deaths in 2018.

International Agency for Research on Cancer head of Surveillance Freddie Bray says by 2040, the number of new cancer cases is projected to rise to 29.3 million and the number of deaths to 16.3 million.

 

“The biggest increases in the cancer burden, a doubling of the cancer burden to 2040, is going to occur in countries at the lowest levels of socio-economic development,” Bray said. “Some in Sub-Saharan Africa, some in South America, some in southern Asia. But there the countries faced with this increasing cancer burden are presently ill-equipped to deal with this pending increase.”

Etienne Krug is director of the World Health Organization’s Department of Non-Communicable Diseases. He says many of the main cancer risks killing people can be prevented by cutting down on tobacco and alcohol consumption, exercising more and eating better.

“And we also could do a lot by increasing immunization against some cancers like cervical cancer and liver cancers, for example,” Krug said. “But for those who have cancer, cancer should not be a death sentence anymore.”
