Puberphonia is not a rare disorder as the world believe, an inappropriate use of high-pitched voice beyond pubertal age in males. It is usually seen in the immediate post-pubescent period when the male vocal mechanism has undergone significant changes in size and function caused by hormonal changes. We have identified and treated in one day by our new research method 500 cases of puberphonia in a short span of one and half years in a small city in the world, Chennai.In male boys talking with high frequency like female folk,as a result could make them to ashame of the situation. So they psychologically affected with depression. Negative social reactions commonly occur and it overall affects social and vocational goals of them.

What is your idea worth spreading in one to two sentences?  

Puberphonia is a devastating disease and so the attitudes need to be change that it’s a hormonal disease, which certainly cause traumatic event in his personal life.

Share an example of something you have been a part of, created, led or joined that you consider unique. Why do you think it is groundbreaking?  

New innovative method of entering middle ear created by Dr.M.Kumaresan  and consider as a unique and groundbreaking as it is included in the Cunningham's manual

9, Campbell park drive,
Edinburgh EH 13 OHS.
3rd March,1988.
Dear Dr.M.Kumaresan,
Thank you for your letter,your note on a method of displaying the middle ear and the attached photographs.
I entirely agree that your method gives an excellent exposure of the middle ear and is preferable to that given in the 8th edition of Cunninghams manual for that purpose. However,with the  restricted time now available for the study of Anatomy we are forced to give up any idea of inculcating the details of middle ear anatomy to the ordinary undergraduate medical student and are more interested in trying to ensure that they get an idea of the relative positions of external, middle,and inner ears and the continuity of the middle ear with the nasal part of the pharynx.  
Clearly your method would be much better for the middle ear alone and would, I except, be much better for ENT students who can give the time to concentrate on.
I will think about introducing this into the manual should I be producing a further edition. Thank you for this helpful suggestion.
Yours sincerely,
George J.Romans

If you were a part of a group or team that did this work, please specify your individual role and contribution to this project team.  

It’s my Individual work not a part of a group or team in this project

What questions should we have asked, but didn’t? Please write them down and answer them. (In other words, tell us something about yourself that we don’t know yet.)  

Why you taken Puberphonia as a research subject:
1.I worked as a  professor of ENT in Stanley Medical College. Near by a railway track is there. One boy who had taken for puberphonia in our ENT department(Speech therapy) committed suicide on the rail tract. The reason is that he had undergone bulling. 2.Another incidents, happen in my family. A puberphonia male married and got a child. An old lady unknowingly told the bride that the puberphonia is incapable of manly powers. That newly married girl committed suicide.
3.In USA my daughter working as pediatrician. We went to a mall. It's a rainy day. we park the car wrongly. On seeing that a gigantic tall manager hurry approached us. We understood our mistake and we are little worried. The manager asked us to keep the car orderly in his puberphonia tone. We just laughed hidden our face by turning around.
After my retirement from ENT surgeon post I have taken teaching  job, voice care  for professional voice users,teachers,artist,singers. I came across "Tholkappiyam" ancient literature regarding voice production. I read extensively Bernoulli phenomenon.Both Tholkappiyar and Bernoulli had given me to use palatogram investigation for treating puberphonia. Finally I have found out pharyngeal resonance manipulation therapy, a one day treatment for puberphonia.                     

Can you share a memorable anecdote from your life that will give us a further sense of what drives you to do the work that you do? 

Puberphonia affects approximately 1 in 9,00,000 of the population. We in a small town in the world,Chennai detected 500 cases of puberphonia in a short period of one and half years. 70% of Puberphonia patients had undergone devastating problems including suicide.This memorable anecdote from my life had given me a further sense of continuing   this work. Has two intentions. One is to review the methods and findings of previous research that has investigated the role of social factors in puberphonia. The second intention is to alert medical profession. The take home message is
1. Puberphonia is a very common problem
2. It needs treatment and treatment available.
3. It is not a hormonal disease.
4. It is not a physiological disease.
5. Puberphonia boys are not smart and intelligent

6. Its curable

List at least one website (more if you like) that will help us understand you better.

Good examples include: your blog, your company's or organization's website, press coverage of your work, your portfolio, research examples, photos, etc. Please do not provide links to your Facebook page or Linkedin profile.

As an ENT surgeon we treated 500 cases of puberphonia in a short span of one and half years.

If you can, please share the specific person, organization, website, etc.

If you had help in completing this application, please explain the circumstances, who helped you and to what degree.

Puberphonia project is an Audacious Project — an initiative to help change in the society and in the mind of the health care population. The fact in puberphonia is under diagnosed and under treated. It is estimated that 90% suicide happening male at the puberty age group. It is concluded as “Social rejection along with tension is the major components”. Nobody ever thing that puberphonia maybe the underlying problem in social rejection. The  puberphonia examples: graduates never goes  for job or higher education, adult not willing to marry, never mingle with friends or family, in a desperate condition leave the home,leave the world. It is a bold ideas for tackling global challenges find the support to make our visions a reality. Thousands of puberphonia boys are waiting for treatment but they never want to expose to them selves that they are puberphonic. Even medical profession and public may feel puberphonia due to hormonal changes, which is supported by media, which is a myth.
