Is Indian system of Medicine in its right way?

first_imgThe recent notification from Central Council of Indian medicine has been the debate in the medical sector for providing opportunities for the Ayurveda postgraduates to do a list of surgical procedures, that had been already practised by the Allopathic doctors for centuries.The National Medical Council recently came into Act on August 2019, is a regulatory body for medical education and medical professionals. The bill came into action despite the nationwide protest against it. The Allopathic doctors(modern doctors) were against it since the beginning.The Act gives provisions for the Crosspathy, making other Indian medicine branches like AYUSH to practice Allopathy, with an integrated curriculum from the beginning of the course. After the MCI was repealed in September 2020 and NMC making its way, has made a very big decision within 2 months of its formation.The AYUSH doctors are already practising Allopathic medicine since ages. The Ayurvedic Pgs are now allowed to learn Allopathic procedures legally which in turn have given them all rights to practice the same. For an easy understanding- the Ayurvedic pgs who were only taught with Ayurvedic method of treating of diseases with little inputs from the modern side is now allowed to do the modern way of treatment of the diseases. In such case what difference will that make between an Ayurvedic doctor and an allopathic doctor?This has questioned the authenticity of the AYUSH branches. It is expected that very soon the other branches of AYUSH like Homoeopathy, Unani, Siddha will also be allowed to do the treatments of modern medicine. We can expect certain fields like Obstetrics and Gynaecology will also be included in their curriculum very soon and they will be allowed to practice Caesarean section and Hysterectomy.Govt of India under the big political party is trying to bring the Indian medicine systems from drowning to make their systems an independent modality of treatment. But this notification clearly raises the doubt of soundness of Indian medicines and raises questions over their success on their treatment methods. Govt of India should fund in research projects and infrastructural development in our Indian system of medicines, rather than trying to club the systems like clubbing the banking sectors.Indian system of medicines has proved their way in many diseases where allopathy is competing to beat them. Indian system of medicines roots a long time, very old than the current allopathy, raising the question for the need of myopathy. Is the Indian system of medicines not fully developed enough to treat the diseases and is taking help from the Allopathy?.When Allopathy doctors cross the NEET/NEXT to become doctors to practice modern medicine, the Ayurvedic pgs have been given a free toll to pass to practice modern medicine.Sushruta (father of Surgery) born in 7th century B.C. was the first known to practice surgeries, while the fathers of modern surgery like Joseph lister, John Hunter are from a few centuries ago. Whether the allopathy developed from Indian system of medicines or the Indian system of medicines are learning surgeries from Allopathy has to be seen. When the ancient methods have done surgeries the newer methods might have developed from the old ones. But this alone doesn’t give them the freedom to practice modern medicine.Unfortunately, many allopathic doctors use Ayurvedic/homoeopathic doctors in their hospitals and practices for the benefit of less pay when compared to an allopathic doctor. Will Indian Medical Association (IMA) consider this before raising concerns over the recent government orders?The practitioners who learnt Indian medicine and practising Allopathy are rising and when the young pgs from Indian medicines are allowed to learn Allopathic medicine, in a long run this will not rise Indian branches rather suppress it, thereby paving the way to its downfall. When the foreign countries are showing interests in Indian medicines, the myopathy is raising concerns over its legacy.The govt of India has already been showing interests over the growth of Ayurvedic department like “The Institute of Teaching and Research in Ayurveda Act, 2020”, making Ayurvedic institutes of National importance, providing 4000 crores under ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’ for the cultivation of medicinal plants and supporting farmers.When Associations like Indian Medical Association and several associations of Resident Doctors are protesting against the moves by NMC in view of future of Allopathy, these moves by the government will not only question the future of Allopathy but also Indian system of medicines!last_img read more

Law Society launches risk management service

first_imgThe Law Society has launched a new service which it claims will help firms navigate the increasingly complicated area of risk and compliance and put in place risk management procedures. The Risk and Compliance Service includes in-house consultancy, a newsletter and a Lawyerline complaints and compliance support service. Law Society president Robert Heslett said: ‘Over the last decade the legal profession has been subject to an unprecedented level of change. In particular the Legal Services Act has remoulded the regulatory framework, while the economic downturn has placed a heavy spotlight on risk, not least in the eyes of insurers and lenders.’ Heslett said this had resulted in a new legal market in which regulatory compliance and management of risk are two of the three biggest concerns for any managing partner, next to profit. ‘The Law Society is responding to this need within the profession by developing an innovative, effective and affordable way to manage risk and regulatory compliance,’ said Heslett. He added that the likelihood of an even tougher professional indemnity insurance renewal process this year makes it imperative that firms look at their systems and processes for client care and risk management, to ensure they can demonstrate best practice.

2010 art revolution brews

first_img9 April 2009A quiet revolution is building ahead of the 2010 Fifa World Cup in South Africa. Stroke by stroke, note by note, thousands of singers, painters and other artists are plying their trade with a strong focus on the upcoming event.The KZN Gallery in Glenwood is currently hosting All Eyes in African, a magnificent exhibition of mosaics by Mbhekeni Mbili which carry a 2010-theme. Last year, the gallery hosted artist Sicelo Ziqubu’s 2010-themed papier-mache decorated thrones. In the poverty-stricken Cape Town suburb of Tafelsig, resident Desmond Kannemeyer is removing gangster grafitti from the walls of his neighbourhood, planning to replace them with giant 2010-themed murals.Tomas Majebe from Cameroon is selling magnificent oil-on-canvas 2010 stadium paintings at flea markets in the Western Cape.Pretoria jeweler Ceciwe Khonje has launched a range of (Fifa-approved) 2010 white gold cufflinks.In Garangkuwa, Peter Malherbe builds model 2010 stadiums out of match sticks. In Polokwane, Joe Moyo is doing the same but with wire and beads.A Port Elizabeth-based ostrich-hide exporter has sealed a deal with a Mexican to have soccer boots made out of ostrich leather – a world first, just in time for Africa’s first World Cup.In Cape Town, Adam Carnegie and his team are churning out kelp (seaweed) vuvuzelas – the trumpet of choice for South African fans.

SA vs England in Champs Trophy semis

first_img“He handled the pressure well and the way he gave his best for the team was very inspiring.” Amla struck 81 off 97 deliveries against Pakistan, weighed in 23 off 27 against the West Indies and 22 off 15 against India, but will no doubt be looking for more in the Proteas’ remaining matches. After a string of disappointments in major tournaments over the years, cricket’s fortunes favoured the Proteas as they advanced to a semi-finals showdown with England after a wicket off of what turned out to be the last ball of the match pulled them level with the West Indians. De Villiers has looked in excellent form, but would surely like to push on from the good results he so far produced: 68 off 72 balls against India, 31 off 31 versus Pakistan, and 37 off 26 against the West Indies. Colin Ingram and David Miller, who have in the past been more on the fringes of than in the team, have both so far played their part in helping South Africa reach the semi-finals. Ingram was man of the match in the win over the West Indies, with 73 off only 63 balls at the top of the innings, while Miller weighed in with 38 off 29 deliveries. His innings included three sixes. On that occasion Gary Kirsten was a member of the winning side and it would be a fitting way to see him off in his last duty as a very successful coach of the Proteas. Established starsHowever, for South Africa to progress to the final and win the title, established stars Hashim Amla and captain De Villiers will need to shine. India, the winners of Group B, will face Sri Lanka in the other final four match. Bottom lineThe bottom line, though, is that cricket is a team game and it will take a team effort to win. South Africa, though, are without Graeme Smith, Jacques Kallis and Morne Morkel and they deserve praise for their fortitude in performing well without the three world class players. It is doubtful any other team, if they had three players of such proven quality, would have performed as well as the Proteas have. South Africa secured a place in the semi-finals of the ICC Champions Trophy after a tie with the West Indies on Friday in Cardiff on the Duckworth/Lewis Method. The Proteas’ better net run rate saw them finish second ahead of the islanders in Group B. In the absence of Smith and Kallis, De Villiers has been more than happy with his team’s batting. “I don’t think our batting can get much better than it is now,” he told the media in Cardiff.center_img Up against a team that includes some of the most devastating strikers in the shorter forms of the game, including Chris Gayle and Kieron Pollard, De Villiers turned to fast bowler Dale Steyn, back in the team after missing their first two matches with injury, to blunt the West Indians’ big hitting. Steyn responded well and played a major role in denying the islanders victory. “What makes me more happy is that I thought we played really good cricket most of the game today.” Just two victories stand between the Proteas and their first major ICC trophy victory in 15 years. The last (and only) one happened in 1998 in the very first Champions Trophy. The premier fast bowler of his generationHaving Steyn back is a huge plus for the Proteas ahead of their showdown with England on Wednesday at The Oval. The cricketing world is pretty much united in its belief that he is the premier fast bowler of his generation. 18 June 2013 “He is definitely an X-factor for us,” De Villiers reckoned. “I called on him a few times today, especially the last spell into the wind and he picked up a wicket. In the absence of Kallis, Ryan McLaren has done a fine job as an all-rounder. His outputs include an unbeaten 71 against India and a haul of 4 for 19 against Pakistan. JP Duminy has also delivered in the all-rounder’s role, mostly by keeping the opposition’s run rate down with his off-spin bowling. ‘A lot of strength in our batting’“We know there is a lot of strength in our batting line-up and I am looking forward to seeing that come through in the next knockout games.” ‘It feels great’It was more a case of relief than triumph for the Proteas in Cardiff. “It feels great. We’ve been on the wrong side of these kinds of matches in the past quite a few times and I have been part of a few teams that’ve been on the wrong side,” South African captain AB de Villiers said at the post-match press conference.

Data as a Service: Selling Data Services as a Commodity

first_imgA new type of cloud vendor is appearing that provide service APIs to analyze and explore the data.   And it’s not just the tools, vendors are also collecting and providing curated data sets that can be tapped into and wired into applications and data analysis tools.Author Robert Sheldon wrote that “there is no limit to the types of data that can be offered through a Data-as-a-Service (DaaS) platform. In addition to those already mentioned, DaaS can deliver census, financial, geographic, insurance, retail, supplier, and distributor data, as well as data from a number of other industries. And once the data has been consolidated and cleansed, a variety of applications (stand-alone, web-based, or mobile) can access the data at any time and from anywhere there’s an Internet or network connection. ”Technologies like the Internet of Things (IoT) are also beginning to generate vast amounts of data.  Businesses are building platforms that capture and harness this data and make it available on demand.David Yockelson, Gartner analyst, wrote that “with IoT, data will be generated by everything all the time, and winners will be those that are best able to harness that data, make sense of it, build rules governing its usage and its value and sell it back to the masses as it were…  There are numerous gateways and connectors to hook in all sorts of home and commercial devices to capture the data streaming from them, and the more intelligent purveyors of those gateways and connectors are either providing their own algorithmic and analytical capabilities or partnering to delivery them.”last_img read more

Harbhajan Singh makes a comeback to ODI squad after four years

first_imgIt’s been an exciting last two months for Harbhajan Singh following a return to Test cricket and the senior off-spinner is now looking forward to the challenge of bowling in the limited-overs format.The veteran off-spinner on Monday staged a comeback to India’s ODI squad for the tour of Zimbabwe after a gap of four years. “Obviously can’t tell you how happy I am that I will be wearing this blue jersey again. I don’t know anything apart from playing cricket. This is all I have done in my life and I am happy that I can again try and give my all for India,” an excited Harbhajan told PTI.  Asked if his decent outing in the one-off Test against Bangladesh has prompted the one-day recall, Harbhajan said, “For me, the aim was to give my 200 per cent in India jersey after a comeback. I had prepared hard for that match. “I believe cricket has a similarity with academics. A student studies day and night for his exams after 10 months.The only difference is for a cricketer, there is an exam every third day and you have to be well prepared for every exam. I feel that Zimbabwe series is another exam and I am studying hard to excel,” the Turbanator said from his Jalandhar residence. “If you ask me, there is always pressure when you are making a comeback. As you cross different levels, the pressure increases. That’s what happens from junior cricket to first class to international cricket.”advertisementFor Harbhajan, this tour will also be a chance to exchange ideas with newer crop of cricketers. “I have always believed in exchange of ideas. I believe that it is my responsibility to help the new crop of cricketers, guide them with my experience and also at the same time learn from them. Cricket is like life. You never stop learning. Till the day, I would play this game, I would not like to stop learning,” said the veteran of 102 Tests and 228 ODIs.last_img read more
