Parents of doc who committed suicide protest outside hospital

first_imgMumbai: Parents of 26-year-old doctor Payal Tadvi who ended her life, allegedly after casteist slurs by her senior colleagues, Tuesday protested at the state-run hospital in Mumbai where she worked.Other protesters also joined Tadvis mother Abeda and husband Salman who demanded “strictest action” against the three seniors who allegedly drove her to end her life by “torturing her by ragging and hurling casteist abuses at her. Protesters belonging to the Vanchit Bahujan Aghadi and other Dalit and tribal organisations held protests outside the BYL Nair Hospital here over Tadvi’s death.

She said Payal would have been the first woman MD doctor from their community. “Payal used to tell me about the torture which she was facing by her seniors on petty issues. They threw files on her face in front of patients,” she said. “Payal used to tell me not to give a written complaint against her seniors despite being harassed by them.

Payal’s husband Salman, a doctor, said the family wants the government to intervene. “We want the government to intervene. The police are not taking any action. It is possible that Payal was murdered by the three women doctors,” Salman said. Expressing solidarity with the protesters and with Tadvis family, Bhim Army chief Chandrashekhar Azad said he would visit Maharashtra if needed to “fight for justice for our younger sister. The Maharashtra State Commission for Women has also taken cognisance of the matter and issued a notice to the hospital authorities demanding a reply within eight days on the action taken to implement the anti-ragging law.

Your personality can reveal how often do you exercise

first_imgIf you have not been able to meet your gym goals despite persistent efforts to wake up early or hitting that running session on a hot summer afternoon, blame it on your personality. According to researchers, some people seem to be able to more consistently meet their goals than others, but it remained unclear if personality traits encourage individuals to achieve long-term goals in their day-to-day lives. Conscientiousness has long been tied with healthy behaviours. Also Read – The Puja carnivalNarrowing their focus to “planfulness” researchers zeroed in on psychological processes – such as mental flexibility, and a person’s ability to make short-term sacrifices in pursuit of future success that contribute directly to achieving long-term goals. “There indeed appears to be a certain way of thinking about goals that correlates with long-term progress,” said researchers. “What’s new in this study is that we used an objective measure of goal progress that could be recorded as participants naturally went about their lives: their check-ins at a local gym”. Also Read – Wave City brings special offers this NavratraThe findings suggest that self-reported levels of the trait called ‘planfulness’ may translate into real world differences in behaviour. The team analysed gym attendance of 282 participants over a 20-week period. The participants, many of whom were students, provided a written description of their exercise plans and completed measures of self-control and grit. While all participants experienced a similar decline in gym attendance over the course of each semester, individuals who rated themselves high on “planfulness” items such as “developing a clear plan when I have a goal is important to me” went to the gym more throughout both semesters compared to those who ranked themselves lower on “planfulness”. “Planfulness” was only significantly associated with the frequency of participants’ gym attendance during the winter semester, possibly due to participants completing their physical activity plan later in the year, the researchers noted. While there was a small, but significant relationship between participant planfulness and the level of detail in their physical activity plans, descriptiveness was unexpectedly found to have no relationship with gym attendance, Ludwig and colleagues noted. “It seems logical that people who are successful with their goals would be able to write in detail about their planning process,” said researchers. “We were surprised, then, to find no relationship between people’s goal pursuit behavior and how they wrote about their goals.”last_img read more

Political career may end with Modi govt 20 Giriraj

first_imgMuzaffarpur (Bihar): BJP’s rabble-rouser Union minister Giriraj Singh on Tuesday hinted he may hang up his boots at the end of the current Modi government’s tenure, and virtually ruled himself out of contention for chief ministership after the assembly polls next year.He was responding to questions at a press conference where he was asked to comment on the growing demand in a section of the BJP about reconsidering JD(U)’s Nitish Kumar as the NDA’s chief ministerial face during the next assembly elections. “I think I am nearing the end of my political career. I am among those who had entered public life not with the ambition of becoming a legislator, an MP, or acquiring any position of power. I was fired by the nationalistic dream of integration of Kashmir for which our ideologue Syama Prasad Mookerjee gave up his life,” Singh said, evading a direct reply to the query. Singh indicated since PM Narendra Modi had fulfilled that dream, he may retire from politics.

I feel a sense of accomplishment. Nothing more needs to be achieved. I think my political career will come to an end with the ongoing tenure of Modi,” Singh, a staunch Modi loyalist since his days as the Gujarat chief minister, said. A Minister of State with independent charge in the first Modi government, Singh was elevated to the cabinet rank after the Lok Sabha polls this year. He retained the Begusarai seat for his party after trouncing CPI’s Kanhaiya Kumar by a staggering over four lakh votes. Known to share cold vibes with CM Nitish Kumar since his days as a member of the state cabinet, Singh earlier alleged his constituency was getting “step motherly” treatment by the state government.last_img read more

SC seeks Centres reply on plea for appointing judicial members in NGT

first_imgNew Delhi: The Supreme Court asked the Centre on Friday to reply to a plea seeking appointment, on a “war-footing”, of judicial and expert members for the NGT benches across the country to ensure that polluters are reined in from spoiling the environment. A bench comprising justices N V Ramana and Sanjiv Khanna issued notice to the government on a plea which has sought directions to all the high courts to take up environmental matters till all the National Green Tribunal benches are fully functional. Also Read – Personal life needs to be respected: Cong on reports of Rahul’s visit abroadApart from that, the petition, filed by West Bengal native Subhas Datta, has also urged the apex court to direct the tribunal not to go for video-conferencing to take up matters of zonal benches. Datta, in his plea, has claimed that method of video-conferencing was “ineffective” due to “disruptions of the satellite connectivity” as well as poor audio and visibility. He has contended that it was the need of the country to have an NGT bench in all the states and Union Territories as against the present total of eight main benches and four circuit benches. The petition has contended that while more benches were needed, the present ones were not taking up matters due to lack of sufficient judicial and expert members. “Due to non-acting of all the existing NGT benches the polluters are getting mileage and, in the process, they are spoiling the environment flora, fauna…,” it has said.last_img read more

Zojila tunnel section on SrinagarLeh NH being concretised to ensure smooth traffic

first_imgSonamarg:The Border Roads Organisation is concretising the Zojila tunnel section of the Srinagar-Leh national highway to streamline the movement of small and heavy vehicles and protect the strategic road from extreme weather events, a senior official has said. “As the stretch is located at a very high altitude and faces extreme weather, the (concrete) blocks will provide friction and can withstand extreme weather in freezing cold and icy surface,” said Col Mukesh Bhanwala, Director, Works Project Beacon. Also Read – Personal life needs to be respected: Cong on reports of Rahul’s visit abroad He said block laying is a fine replacement for black topping, which is not possible at such unfavourable spots. Officials said nearly 3-km stretch of the upper alignment of the Zojila Pass has been completely paved with “interlocking concrete blocks” on which vehicles can move smoothly. Col Bhanwala said the plan is to lay concrete blocks for about 6 km of the Pass. “Pending work will be completed in upcoming season. Because of the heavy rush of transport due to stocking time, this season won’t allow much time to complete it,” he said. Also Read – Firms staying closed 10 days a month due to recession, govt doing nothing: Priyanka Gandhi Zojila Pass, at a height of 11,516 feet above the sea level, connects the picturesque Kashmir valley with the cold Indus Valley desert through the 434-km-long Srinagar-Leh road. As the road is vulnerable to landslides due to snowfall and rainfall, the interlocking of concrete blocks offer resistance against extreme weather and provides longer life. The Srinagar-Leh NH remains closed for half of the year due to snowfall and landslides, and restoring and repairing the Zojila Pass is a daunting task for BRO. It sees a daily rush of hundreds of heavy truck loads and passenger vehicles moving in and out of the Ladakh region. “Concrete blocking is best for such conditions. Blocks will not slide or move as they are fixed on all four sides for strong and firm grip,” he Col Bhanwala said.last_img read more

More Top NewsWritten by Pratap Bhanu Mehta | Published: June 20 2014 12:57 am The most important signal this government needs to send is that it is going to write a new chapter in the history of Indian institutions Related News It seems that the NDA has not learnt the first lesson from the UPA’s mistakes It appears hell bent on continuing the decimation of institutions that has been the bane of Indian politics The same contagion of small-mindedness that corroded the UPA is spreading its poison under the facade of the new The joke doing the rounds in Delhi that the party in power has changed but the politicians lawyers and bureaucrats have not seems to be coming true alas The surprise is not that it’s business as usual The surprise is how quickly business as usual has asserted itself Think of the unseemly spectacles unfolding around us on institutions The hallmark of a new governance paradigm is that one party does not use the past misdeeds of the other as an alibi to repeat the same mistakes Yet this is exactly what has happened in the way in which this government has handled the matter of governors An article of faith in a civilised democracy is that we sometimes hold our noses but give the offices the respect due to them After they assume office governors are not individuals belonging to a party; they have to be judged in relation to a role This government is right to say that certain political appointees like HR Bhardwaj demeaned the office of the governor by playing low politics But that is at best an argument for transferring a couple of governors in states where there were reasonable political apprehensions It is not an argument for the wholesale denigration of the office One of the distortions the UPA produced was upsetting the constitutional deference due to offices The idea of secretaries calling up governors as if they were minions in the civil service and asking them to leave reflects a culture of corroded institutions where all formal deference is subordinated to political whim The objection made is that the governors by virtue of being Congressmen are unfit to be governors that they will somehow not transmit what one spokesman called the “national agenda” But this is tacitly admitting that the last set of governors were right to do the Centre’s bidding; now the government wants a set that can do its bidding rather than discharge the duties of the office The government’s argument against the Congress would be more credible if there were some undertaking that the next set of governors would be more non-partisan The contagion of petty partisanship will now afflict a large number of other institutions A range of bodies from the Indian Council for Cultural Relations to the National Commission for Women will have their heads replaced Again the desire of this government to appoint people it deems fit is not unreasonable There is also something unseemly in a country where people do not gracefully offer their resignations giving the new government a chance to rejig But by asking for wholescale resignations the underlying message that goes out is simple: there are institutions that do not have an identity and mission that can be identified independently of partisan politics We may not like everything the past occupants of these positions have done but by reducing these institutions to mere politics we shrink them in the long run The itch to reward supporters after a major victory is understandable But the crudity and haste with which people are being eased out will diminish future occupants because the office has been diminished The mistakes continue The UPA’s besetting sin was an incurable casualness Just think of the chain of events that led up to the Andhra fiasco The advisory order requiring many states to communicate in Hindi suggests exactly that same lack of forethought India has a delicate language settlement hard-won through careful compromise and informal conventions This settlement has served India well Indeed it has even served the cause of Hindi well allowing it to grow without being associated with the fears of state domination This is exactly the kind of issue on which it is not worth creating distracting noise that unnecessarily raises fears One reason we want institutions is that they are necessary to securing certainty and liberty alike Some NGOs deserve scrutiny and certainly any illegal actions need to be accounted for But the manner in which the government has handled the supposed leak by the IB is creating a climate of uncertainty and fear and empowering all those who wish to intimidate independent actors in civil society This was exactly the same mistake the UPA made twice over It first created an environment of uncertainty and intimidation It then went on to craft laws like the amendments to the FCRA Act whose sole purpose is to give the state more discretionary power over citizens If the NDA was serious about governance it should reprimand the IB for doing a shoddy job on facts for letting the report leak and it must address the climate of intimidation that is being created in its wake Admitted it’s early days yet and in the larger scheme of things these may be small matters But these are telling signs in so far as governments usually get more not less arrogant with time as the UPA showed The government is right to think that economic development is uppermost on people’s minds But underlying our logjam in development was the breakdown of institutions Every single ministry is beset by an institutional crisis which is at the core of its failures: the HRD has in the past treated autonomous institutions as appendages to the ministry when convenient the main weakness of environmental processes is not delay but the fact that the ministry has made their integrity hard to defend the office of the attorney general has acted as the political arm of government not an office of law the relationship between civil servants and ministers between the cabinet secretariat and secretaries has been skewed beyond recognition and the ministry of finance failed to craft a credible new narrative on inflation instead of repeating “hoarders” on auto pilot because there are few honest brokers left within the government system who can stitch together an all things considered narrative The most important signal this government needs to send is that it is going to write a new chapter in the history of Indian institutions It should repeat this like a mantra: no institutions no development But more than playing footloose with institutions this creeping display of conventional politics has a disfiguring moral psychology behind it It shows a pettiness that sits at odds with India’s challenges and aspirations The government quickly needs to show that it is not going to be business as usual that its institutional conduct will elevate the smallest office not diminish even the highest ones It is not too late for that lesson
