Science behind today’s "Kalyug mein Ramayana"

The current cricket world cup scenario: India (Rama) married World Cup (Sita) in 1983 and in 1996 Sri Lanka (Ravana) took away Sita (World Cup).
Now after 14 years of vanvaas, they meet again to take back their Sita.

Out of the four Yugas, Ramayana is based in the Tretya yuga with Rama defeating Ravana and Hanumana setting Lanka on fire. After two yugas, there will be another Ramayana in today’s era of Kalyuga.

Today will be the day when a Hanuman of today will try to attempt another Lanka Dahan in the afternoon. Who will be this Hanuman? The answer would be clear to us by the end of the day.

Will he be Virender Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh, Harbhajan Singh or Zaheer Khan? It is clear that the Rama of this Kalyugi Ramayana will be Mahender Singh Dhoni with the role of Lakshmana (lakshya – determination and manas (Mind) role being played by Suresh Raina and that of Sugriva (Intellect) by Sachin Tendulkar.

Will this happen or not only time will tell. But all odds are in favor the Kalyugi Ram i.e. MS Dhoni. Firstly, this battle is not in Lanka but in Ram’s home country and "God" is with Sachin who wants to give him a World Cup as a gift in his last few years of cricket. God’s grace is obvious in that he gave Sachin at least four chances so that India could win against Pakistan in the semifinals. In fact, God never wanted India to lose.

A Bharat Ratna for Sachin Tendulkar is only a century away. If this happens during the India–Sri Lanka final match and India wins nobody can stop Sachin from getting Bharat Ratna next year.

Scientifically, the Indian cricketers will have higher serotonin levels in their blood on the day of the match. The same would be true for the billion Indian supporters watching the match in the stadium as well as outside the stadium across the world.

It is a well known fact that whatever the collective consciousness of the society thinks happens. It is unlikely that India will lose the Sri Lanka match. All probabilities, superstitions, calculations, bookies’ predictions are in favor of India.

Unfortunately, in the India Pakistan semifinal match, both the sides did not give their best. Both the teams gave a very mediocre performance. We hope that in this final match, it will be the bat which will show the magic and Mumbai will be flooded with runs.

Like Ravana, Sri Lanka has not reached the finals of merit. They did not have to play against strong teams of India, Pakistan, South Africa and Australia in the knock out games. They were lucky that India beat Pakistan, New Zealand beat South Africa and India beat Australia in the knock out stages of the world cup. This is what Ravana did to Sita, who took her away when neither Rama nor Lakshaman were with her.

We do not have any Vibhishana in this game. Only an umpire with non deliberate wrong decision in favor of India can turn out to be the Vibhishana of Kalyuga.

Today many ambitions are on stake: India’s is to bring the cup back after 14 years; Sachin Tendulkar’s is to score his hundredth hundred; of Sehwag to get 200 or bat till the end; of Yuvi to become the Man of the Series and Dhoni’s to be the leaders in all formats of the game (T20 won inaugural world cup, number one Test team and now THE BEST TEAM ODIs 50 overs).

Will it be fulfilled or not, only the next few hours would tell.

Let us wish our team all the best! We will share happiness in tomorrow’s edition.

Kaliyuga ki Ramayana (Role players)

Rama: Consciousness: M S Dhoni

Lakshamana: Determined mind (taking control of the fag end power play)

Sita: Body (World Cup)

Bharat and Shatrughana: You and Me, the devotees of cricket

Hanumana: Breath control (Man of the Match today)

Sugriva: Intellect (Sachin Tendulkar, guiding Dhoni or Rama) Ravana: Ego (Sri Lanka Team)

Exit Skill test: Will it exit

The Medical Council of India (MCI) was planning to make it mandatory for medical students to appear for a new “skills test” after their internship programme to test their “skills to analyze patients and diagnose conditions.” The Young Doctors’ Association of India (YDAI - formed under the aegis of Indian Medical Association) organized a protest on Tuesday, March 29, 2011 in front of the office of the Medical Council of India at Dwarka, New Delhi against the MCI decision to implement the proposed Exit Test for MBBS students. This protest was attended by more than 500 medical students and young doctors from all over the country.

Office bearers of the IMA HQs. participated in the protest and provided all the support to the students. On hearing IMA protest, Dr. Ravindra Nath Salhan, Member, Board of Governors (BoG), MCI invited a delegation of YDAI and IMA to meet him personally. The delegation consisting of Dr DR Rai, Mr. VG Vinod Kumar, President, YDAI and Dr. Anirudh Lochan, National Secretary, YDAI met him, Dr. Sangeeta Sharma, Secretary, MCI and Dr. P. Prasannaraj, Addl. Secy., MCI in MCI office.

After being informed through a memorandum, about the shortcomings in the hospitals attached to medical colleges and after having personally witnessed the agitation of students regarding the unjust implementation of the Exit Test, the above MCI members promised the delegation that the MCI will introduce the Exit Test only after creating the necessary infrastructure which as per them, will take not less than 5 years. They promised to include reasoning based MCQs in the PG Entrance exams.

This is another big victory for our unity after the rollback of Service Tax on Healthcare.

De–Stress

Researchers in 2004 uncovered some surprising information on just how much of an effect stress can have on the body. According to scientists, the tips, or ends of DNA strands are known as telomeres. These telomeres prevent DNA strands from fraying, like the end of a shoelace. However, stress can negatively affect telomeres, causing damage and fraying to DNA strands. In the case of skin cells, frayed DNA can equal wrinkles, age spots and fine lines, making it essential to de–stress every now and then in order to avoid older–looking skin. Regular exercise and frequent mental breaks are two easy ways to counteract the negative effects of stress. Make sure you’re taking time out of your day to relax – even if it is for only a few minutes.

Treat obese diabetics with bariatric diet of surgery

Obese type 2 diabetics should have bariatric surgery or be on bariatric diet. As per International Diabetes Federation, patients with diabetes and a BMI of 35 or more should be treated with any of the various forms of bariatric surgery, including gastric bypass and gastric banding. Surgery should also be used in patients with a BMI of 30 to 35 whose diabetes is not adequately controlled by medications –– especially among those with other major risk factors for heart disease, including hyperlipidemia, hypertension, and a history of myocardial infarction. Surgery normalizes blood glucose levels and reduces the need for medications. However American Diabetes Association recommends that surgery is used only for diabetic patients with a BMI of 35 or above, especially if they have other heart disease risk factors. Physicians should use a lower BMI reference for Asian patients and some other ethnicities –– as much as 2.5 BMI points lower. Doctors can replace the bariatric diet for bariatric surgery and consider surgery only if the diet fails.

Shift workers who compromise sleep may be at risk for diabetes, other chronic conditions

Jeanne Geiger–Brown, an associate professor at the University of Maryland School of Nursing who researches shift work and sleep, said that even when night shift workers try to sleep eight hours during the day to be ready for work, they don’t get enough sleep.

Situation: An elderly obese diabetic was started on metformin therapy.
Dr. Bad: It cannot be prescribed to elderly.
Dr. Good: Continue it.
Lesson: For elderly patients who do not have contraindication to metformin (severe renal impairment or heart failure), one should initiate therapy with metformin (American Geriatric Society, American Diabetes Association, European Diabetes working Party for Older People Guidelines).

Make Sure

Situation: A patient with acute chest pain died before reaching the hospital.
Reaction: Oh my God! Why was water–soluble aspirin not given?
Lesson: Make sure that at the onset of acute heart attack and chest pain, water–soluble aspirin is chewed to reduce chances of sudden death.

 
    An Inspirational Story

(Dr Anupam Sethi Malhotra)

A milk vendor used to sell milk on his motor cycle in a town. He was carrying four milk cans, two on each side of his vehicle. One day, while he was calling on a house, two students approached his motor cycle and pushed frogs one each in two cans. The happy frogs started finding themselves in a tight position.

The frog in one of the cans studied the situation. It made a SWOT analysis. His strength was – to swim effectively in any liquid. He recollects from his "WISDOM BANK" that most difficult times come only for a short time and will not last long. He starts swimming and swimming and finds himself sitting on a butter lump formed due to the churning action of his swimming. He is now safe for a while. When the milk vendor opens the cans for his next call, the frog leaps to his freedom.

The frog in other can does not turn on his attitudinal bulb. He blames the student for his misery and started cursing him. He blames God for making him so small that he can neither lift the lid of the can nor he can drill a hole in the can. With all these negative thoughts, he eventually drowns in the milk and dies.

What is the moral of the story? It is about ATTITUDE. While the first frog was an ‘I CAN’ person with a positive mental attitude, the other one was an ‘I CAN'T ‘person.

You can be a "CAN" or ‘CAN’T’ person. The choice is with you alone. No one except yourself can make you a ‘CAN’ or ‘CAN’T’ person. A Winner is NOT one who NEVER FAILS……But one who NEVER QUITS!!!"

Many people spend their whole life in overcoming their weakness… but they forget it is only possible by strengthening there strengths… Let us work on our strengths such that any problem can be converted into opportunity and be a Positive person…If we are positive …then surely we would be able to see +ve energy in others…too……

When Thomas Edison invented the light bulb, he tried over 2000 experiments before he got it to work.

A young reporter asked him how it felt to fail so many times. He said, "I never failed once. I invented the light bulb. It just happened to be a 2000–step process".

Male infertility could be due to erectile problems or problem in the sperm count. The causes of sperm production problems can exist from birth or develop later as a result of severe medical illnesses, including mumps and some sexually transmitted diseases, or from a severe testicle injury, tumor, or other problem. Inability to ejaculate normally can prevent conception, too, and can be caused by many factors, including diabetes, surgery of the prostate gland or urethra, blood pressure medication, or impotence.

What’s so important about exercise?

Post Bariatric Surgery Exercise

It is important that bariatric surgery patients adopt an exercise routine after undergoing the procedure. While weight loss surgery is effective in helping patients lose weight in the year after the procedure is performed, it is not enough to help patients maintain a healthy weight. In addition to following a proper diet following bariatric surgery, an exercise program is often recommended to tighten skin, improve muscle tone, lower blood pressure and boost strength. The benefits of exercise following bariatric surgery are many.

After a weight loss surgery procedure, weight is lost because the amount of food energy (calories) patient is able to eat is much less than what the body needs to operate. It has to make up the difference by burning reserves or unused tissues. Body will tend to burn any unused muscle before it begins to burn the fat it has saved up. If exercise is not done daily, body will consume unused muscle, and muscle mass and strength will be lost. Daily aerobic exercise for 20 minutes will burn the fat instead.

 
    Head Injury Update

    Medi Finance Update

(Dr GM Singh)

I have not received TDS certificate from my employer. Can I claim TDS deducted from my salary?

Yes. The claim can be made in your return. However, there is a possibility that the revenue authorities may not grant credit for taxes deducted in absence of the TDS certificates. Where credit for taxes deducted is not granted, demand for taxes remaining unpaid maybe raised on the payer i.e., the employer since liability to deduct lies with him. However this does not preclude the revenue authorities from issuing demand to the employee. To avoid such a situation it is advisable to follow up with your employer for the TDS certificates.

    Readers Response

1. Dear Editor, I fully agree with your views on the difference between Integrated and Adulterated medical practice. To put records straight, let me say that Integrated medical practice by ayurvedic physicians, having studied allopathy as part of integrated medicine, was very much in vogue till 1974, when courses were transformed as ‘pure’ ayurveda. True, besides the three distinct medical councils one each for allopathy, ayurveda and homoeopathy, no separate council was ever established for integrated (ayurveda plus allopathy) medicine, and that’s the reason for the demise of this discipline! Dr. Narendra Kumar kumars@vsnl.com

2. Dear Dr Aggarwal, the letter of Dr Kunal (emedinews dated 31.3.11) needs awareness of existing schemes. Here I wish to highlight the Indian Medical Association’s Social Security Scheme (http://www.imansss.org/). The members can visit the site and get the details of the scheme. I hope the readers of emedinews will benefit. The 2nd Scheme, which the govt has introduced for professionals like doctors and others who are not in service – is the National Pension Scheme of Govt of India. Every member can take this scheme. I hope you will publish these two schemes for the benefit of all the readers. Sincerely: Dr R S Bajaj, Ph 9312888001

How Much Water Should One Drink in summer?

Most agree that one should drink an average of eight cups (consisting of eight fluid ounces) of water per day. However, the true amount of water intake depends upon several factors, including gender, age, level of activity, and environment.

The adequate water intake is 30 ml per kg body weight in a person with normally functioning kidneys said Dr KK Aggarwal, Padma Shri & Dr BC Roy National Awardee and President, Heart Care Foundation of India.

As an individual grows older, the need for water intake decreases slightly, but adequate water intake is still just as vital to the body’s functioning. In presence of kidney diseases excessive water intake does not help prevent kidney disease. In fact, the doctor may recommend restriction of water intake.

Sodium and intravascular volume balance are usually maintained via homeostatic mechanisms until the kidney functions fall below 10 to 15 mL/min. However, the patient with mild to moderate chronic kidney disease, despite being in relative volume balance, is less able to respond to rapid infusions of sodium and is therefore prone to fluid overload. In summer such patients should therefore take extra salty water only after medical consultations.

On the contrary, hypovolemia (such as vomiting, diarrhea, diuretic use), may cause potentially reversible declines in renal function. These patients need excess of fluids to replenish the amount lost in vomiting or diarrhea.

Your level of activity is one of the greatest indicators of the amount of water you should drink each day. As you exercise, your body will begin to excrete more water through perspiration and require more water for proper replenishment. For a short bout of exercise (less than 30 minutes), one to two extra glasses will replenish the body. If you are exercising for longer periods of time or in warmer climates, you will likely need to drink at least three extra glasses of water per day to replace any liquid lost during the process.

Your environment also affects the amount of water you should drink. Individuals in warmer climates should drink more water to compensate for liquid lost through perspiration. Individuals who live at high altitudes may also need to drink more water, as the lack of oxygen in the air prompts more rapid breathing and a greater loss of moisture during respiration.

Everyone, regardless of their environment, should drink more water during the summer months, as the heat and extra time spent outside can result in greater liquid loss.

Rule of thumbs

  1. Arm pit test: the arm pit should always be wet, if dry indicated significant dehydration
  2. Urine output measure: one must pass urine once in eight hours. If not consult your doctor.
  3. Know your kidney function: 140 minus age in years multiplied by weight in Kg and divided by 72 multiplied by serum creatinine levels in men. In females multiply this number by 0.85.
  4. All patients with heart and liver disorders should talk to their doctor for the fluid and salt intake measures.
