More heatwave cases in Hyderabad May 30, 2015 11:12

Niloufer Hospital in Hyderabad is day by day turning as the brunt of heat pyrexia (when fever crosses more than 101°F) cases, as most of the people are suggested to visit this particular hospital, if the complaints regarding dehydration, high fever, diarrhoea, headache and vomiting are high. Only on Friday, the hospital received a high number of 878 pediatric out patients (OP) and among them most of them are suffering from heat pyrexia combined with diarrhoea.   Sometimes, pediatric cases become complicated when contaminated drinking water leads to diarrhoea and vomiting while extreme temperature results in heat pyrexia at the same time. Pre medical care at homeMost of the doctors advise proper medical care at home before the patients are brought to the hospital. "It will help if parents can administer Oral Rehydration Solution (ORS) or paracetamol syrup for kids (in case they have a fever) before bringing them to hospital. This will help them to stabilize," said Dr M Venkateswarlu, duty doctor, Niloufer emergency ward. The root cause for the pyrexia cases is generally due to spending long hours under the sun. Dr. Aftab Ahmed, consultant physician, Apollo Hospitals, Secunderabad, suggests, "In case one has to travel with kids, try and travel at the coolest part of the day. Ensure children should wear light colored, loose clothes and hydrate them with water or at least fruit juice."    "In the event, a child is sick due to heat stress, immediately move to a cooler place, give fluids, use fan and wet towels to cool down and call for emergency help," he added. Government should take these initiativesAs the temperatures are getting worse day by day, it would be better if government arranges few awareness campaigns. Especially, the parents who are travelling with the kids should be taken extra care. In every bus stations, railway stations and many other places where the people are crowded to travel, the government should arrange fans, coolers and drinking water too at least till the temperatures come down completely.

Aruna Shaunbaug's attacker traced in Uttar Pradesh May 30, 2015 11:03

Remember Aruna Shaunbaug, the world’s oldest comatose patient, who died two weeks ago in Mumbai’s KEM Hospital? Now a local newspaper in Uttar Pradesh reportedly traced Sohanlal Bharta Valmiki, the attacker of Aruna, who raped her brutally in 1973. Since then she was in coma and died recently in a vegetative state. The 67-year old’s tragic death shook the entire nation while making headlines all over.  Valmiki was traced to a village in Uttar Pradesh's Ghaziabad district where he is reportedly working as a laborer. Surprisingly, he told media that he was not able to recall the incident, which the nation is debating over. "Why are you people calling it as rape," Valmiki asked the journalist from Marathi newspaper Sakaal Times who met him at Parpa village in Ghaziabad district.Aruna was in her 20s when she was brutally harassed by Valmiki- a ward boy by that time- at Mumbai's KEM hospital where she used to work as a junior nurse. Valmiki raped her for scolding him and told him not to steal the food that was meant for stray animals. He waited in the basement of the hospital that night till she arrives. Then he sodomised her and strangled her with a dog chain, cutting supply of oxygen to her brain. It was only 11 hours later, hospital staff found her in the basement. She was blind and suffering from a severe brain stem injury. - Manohar

Now it’s turn for employees to protest on KCR! May 30, 2015 09:57

Along with the students, pension holders and a few others, now the employees are also going to join the list of people who are protesting against KCR.It is known that, Telangana Chief Minister KCR has announced a 43% hike in salary to the government employees. But till date, no such hike is implemented in the state. KCR announced, Naidu implementedOn the other side, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister, Chandrababu Naidu, who announced the same 43% hike along with KCR, had already started implementing it to the AP employees. Regarding this, a discrimination has started among the dual state employees. So, the Telangana employees are now planning to protest against CM for the implementation of the announced hike.Reason behind employees supporting Telangana movement Frankly speaking, the expectations on the salary hikes, more employment opportunities, promotions are a few of the reasons behind the employees supporting the Telangana movement. But, it seems like, all such employees are unhappy with the TRS government, as they are in thought that, the government is not at all concerned about the employees of the state. There is not even a single thing which the KCR government was identified positive, according to the employees since the formation of the state.    In Andhra Pradesh, the employees are treated very well and are identified by their government. But in Telangana, which first announced the hike could not able to keep up its word. With this, employees are losing hope on KCR and are planning to protest soon. Meanwhile, all these oppositions are sounding a positive buzz on Chandrababu who is trying to make his identity felt in Telangana.  By Phani
