I luv'd this news......

Akhilesh's austerity drive: 32 cars dropped from his fleet

Indo-Asian News Service, Updated: March 30, 2012 14:49 IST

Lucknow:  Surprising even his officials, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav has issued orders to cut down the cars in his fleet from 40 to just eight and also ordered the specialized hospital operating in his official residence to shut down.

Thirty-two cars have been ordered to be taken away from the Chief Minister's fleet and repatriated to the Rajya Sampatti Vibhag (state property wing), a senior official with the Chief Minister's security said.

"The only cars that would now be accompanying the motorcade of the Chief Minister would be a fleet of ambassadors and an SUV fitted with jammers," the official said.

The Chief Minister has also ordered the highly specialized hospital within his official residence to be shut down immediately and said that doctors on duty be sent to hospitals where they are needed more, officials said.  (personally I luv’d this part of the news)

This hospital was formed in 2008 on orders of Mayawati and cost the state exchequer Rs. 75 lakh per annum had a medical superintendent, 22 pharmacists, a dozen nurses, four hi-tech ambulances and specialist doctors on 24x7 duty. (Opening This kind of a thing was utter cheapness)

The latest move of the 38-year-old Chief Minister, who has also opened the doors of sprawling official residence for common people, is in stark departure from his predecessor
Mayawati who moved around the city in hooter fitted cars and a fleet of 40-plus cars. These included three jammer fitted cars, an ambulance and a fleet of cars of city police and traffic cops.

Akhilesh Yadav has also done away with other security regulations such as stopping of traffic when the Chief Minister's convoy passes and the use of hooters whenever he moves.

"
This is the real face of Samajwad (socialism) where everyone, even the Chief Minister is treated alike," said Rajendra Chowdhary, spokesperson of the Samajwadi Party and a close aide of the Chief Minister.

Also, in a state where government officials and employees are used to a five-day week, Akhilesh Yadav threw in a surprise when he turned up at his annexe office on a Saturday, quietly and unnoticed without the usual horn honking and siren blaring entourage following him. The SUVs specially imported for Mayawati's fleet have also been grounded, a source said.

A new kind of "Proud Rapists" of India

New trends of killing the girl child

By ANI | ANI – 17 minutes ago
Darbhanga, Mar 20 (ANI): The U.N. Department of Economic and Social Affairs report indicating that India is not a safe place for the girl child hit the headlines in many newspapers and news channels in the country.
Indian society has been known for its preference for the male child.
Among the 150 countries surveyed, including countries classified as LDR (Less Developed Regions), India has the highest rate of female child mortality.
According to this new data - an Indian girl between the ages of one and five years old is 75 percent more likely to die than an Indian boy, giving the country the worst gender differential in child mortality in the world. For every 56 boys that die in this age group, there are 100 girls who die in India.
However, statistically with the biological benefit that girls have over boys for survival at this stage, the standard ratio of child mortality for the rest of the world is 116 boys to 100 girls.
The question is, despite several efforts of the Indian Government at national as well as state level, why are we unable to arrest this trend? Why is the situation waning despite a number of laws to prevent female foeticide and numerous schemes to encourage families to have girl children? The answer, if any, will only reveal a picture dirtier than ever.
Female infanticide has existed long before sonography and abortion techniques arrived in India. In the current scenario, the insensitive people of the same school of thought have devised new methods of putting a full stop to the lives of young infants. Today, they are not dependant on doctors or machines.
On the freezing morning of December 17, I witnessed an incidence, which hitherto I had heard about only in the news. That day, the litter bin in my neighbourhood became the carnage ground for a newborn who was ferociously being wolfed down by few canines, that too, in front of several "human beings".
By the time I reached the site, the dogs had already ripped off the body. For a moment, everything around me came to a halt and later the inevitable feeling of vulnerability, agitation and melancholy overwhelmed me into frozen inaction. How could anyone do this to their own child?
I informed a local news channel in the hope that police will follow them but much to my surprise - they came, shot the video and left saying "we have covered the news, thank you." No action was taken and that hapless newborn became simply another 'breaking news' item.
This is not a case in isolation; pick up any newspaper around you and there are numerous such cases reported; the recent ones being a mentally ill father drowning her girl child in a drain in the national capital Delhi and a two month old girl found abandoned in Haryana.
Each state in the country, it seems, has chillingly evolved their own unique ways of killing baby girls: drowning the infant in a bucket of milk, feeding her salt, or burying her living in an earthen pot are few of the "easier" options to get rid of the burden.
While visiting areas where female infanticide is practiced in India, Gita Aravamudan, author of the book Disappearing Daughters (2007), observed that the traditional methods of female infanticide can often be traced successfully, enabling investigations to be launched against them.
According to Gita, "[To avoid arrest] families adopt more torturous methods of killing [infant girls]... inducing pneumonia was the modern method. The infant was wrapped in a wet towel or dipped in cold water as soon as it was born or when it came back home from the hospital. If, after a couple of hours, it was still alive, it was taken to a doctor who would diagnose pneumonia and prescribe medicine, which the parents promptly threw away. When the child finally died, the parents had a medical certificate to prove pneumonia. Sometimes the infant was fed a drop of alcohol to create diarrhoea: another 'certifiable disease." This is the level where human sensitivity has reached today.
The PCPNDT Act 1994 (Preconception and Prenatal Diagnostic Techniques Act) was modified in 2003 to target the medical profession. What we have achieved, or not, by such laws is reflected in the current statistics. Much hard work has gone into researching the reasons behind the cruel act. Social and economical factors were found to play a crucial role.
During her research, Gita found that there was a strong link between female foeticide and factors like wealth, education, success of family planning, and medical progress.
We may find several reasons, but none would hold good when it comes to killing, leave alone gender biased killings. What makes it hard to fight is the involvement of fairly educated people. No law can change the mindset of the people which even education failed to alter. Does this situation indicate a hopeless future? If this trend of killing girl child, inside or outside the womb, continues, the entire country will bear the consequences.
More than education, we need to create awareness on the issue in every state, in every region. Community efforts are required to bring that change which no law or education has succeeded to bring till now.
The Charkha Development Communication Network feels that women themselves need to come forward and fight for the rights of their girl child. Men should participate equally in the cause. If not taken seriously, the day is not far when no girl will be available - no daughter, wife, sister or friend. A boy from Haryana bringing a girl from Orissa to get married due to a scarcity of girls in his region is just the beginning! By Kavita Kumari (ANI)

God Ended the Curse, The Cursed Angel went back to heaven.

Baby Falak, age 2, dies of heart attack in hospital

Reported by Tanima Biswas, Updated: March 15, 2012 23:07 IST

New Delhi:  The baby who India saw in photographs, a black band placed across her eyes to protect her identity, has died in hospital. On Sunday, she would have completed two months at Delhi's AIIMS, where doctors treated her for unimaginable horrors inflicted upon her.

She died of a heart attack - her third in these two months. Lately, doctors had felt she was recovering from the different medical complications that were the result of having her face bitten, her head smashed into a wall, and her chest being burnt with a hot clothes iron.

Doctors attending to Falak say her heart rate had been fluctuating all day. They suspect her heart was weak due to the two cardiac arrests she had suffered from earlier. Doctors are shocked as Falak was off the ventilator and was recovering well.

She was brought to hospital on January 18 by a teen who said the infant had fallen down from her bed. The injuries were clearly caused by physical abuse. The teen girl was detained and put in a child welfare home where she was interrogated about how she had become the baby's custodian. Nurses looking after the baby, diagnosed with Battered Baby Syndrome, named her Falak meaning "the sky."

A shocked India began tracking Falak's updates via medical bulletins that doctors held everyday on camera. She remained in the Intensive Care Unit, often being put on a ventilator. She survived six brain surgeries. The last surgery performed on her was nearly three weeks ago. And a few days ago, doctors said she seemed strong enough to be able to go home.

But nobody came forward for her. A long police search had located her mother, named Munni, in Rajasthan. Her own story spoke of the plight of so many poor and illiterate women who are forced to give up their children because they can't afford to look after them. Falak had two siblings. Their father walked out on the family. Munni was lured to Delhi by a gang who trafficked sex workers. She refused to prostitute herself, so the women in the gang arranged a marriage for her to a man in Rajasthan. They brokered the deal, unknown to Munni, for two lakhs. They said she should leave her children behind, and that once she settled into her new life, her husband would be persuaded to accept them. The women then divided up the children. Falak's sister was sent home to Bihar. Her brother is five-years-old. And Falak was passed from one adult to another, all known to the gang of traffickers, till she ended up with a teen who was living with a married man. In frustration, the teen allegedly assaulted her. One day, when it was clear the baby was in critical condition, she brought her to AIIMS.

Falak's mother visited her once in hospital. She broke down after she saw her baby. She is now in a shelter at the Social Welfare Department's Nirmal Chaya Complex in Delhi.

The Child Welfare Committee was to decide whose custody Falak would be placed in once she left AIIMS. When doctors said she was strong enough to leave hospital, they said nobody has asked to look after her, so she was being kept in the general ward.

Baby Falak, a Cursed Angel - Part 2.

Thx to everybody who prayed for this little angel.....

 

 

'Baby Falak has survived', say doctors

NDTV Correspondent, Updated: March 03, 2012 11:10 IST

New Delhi:  India's prayers have finally been answered. Doctors looking after two-year-old Baby Falak at All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in Delhi have said that the toddler has survived. She was brought to the hospital on January 18 in a severely battered and bruised condition. After over 45 days of treatment, she is now out of coma and has been off ventilator support for the past five days.

Yesterday, Falak was shifted from the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the hospital to the children's ward. "We have shifted her to the ward. She is doing fine. We have removed the plaster from her hands and she is moving her limbs. She cries badly when anyone goes close to her. She has no infection or breathing problem now," doctors said. They, however, added that her cognitive recovery would still remain a concern because of the brain damage she had sustained.

Given the considerable improvement in her medical condition, doctors say Falak can be discharged from the hospital soon. "In another two to three days and we can declare her fit to be discharged," said Dr Deepak Agarwal, who has been attending on the child since January 18.

The hospital can only give the child to a legal guardian. Falak's mother has come to meet her only once in the last 44 days. Doctors say she hasn't contacted them for her custody after the news of Falak's recovery spread.

When Falak was brought to the hospital, she had severe head injuries, broken arms, bite marks all over her body and cheeks branded with hot iron. Moved by her plight, Indians as well some people from the US and Canada approached the hospital, expressing their desire to adopt her. "We have received a lot of mails but we have no right to hand her over to anyone. It all depends on the government authorities," Dr Agarwal said.

Doctors say it is important that Falak be moved out of hospital soon. If that doesn't happen, they say, the chances of her developing a hospital acquired infection are very high and then all progress would be lost.

Doctors have so far conducted five life-saving surgeries on her.
