Why we prohibit starting new work for 8 days before Holi but not before Dusshera
Nine days before Dussehra and Ramnavami we celebrate Navratras, a period where starting any new work is considered auspicious. From Dussehra to Diwali 20 days period is again considered auspicious.

11th March World Kidney Day (Dr N P Singh)
Testing for kidney disease: A simple test can be done to detect protein in your urine. Persistent protein in the urine is an early sign of chronic kidney disease. The results of serum creatinine are used to calculate overall kidney function, or glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and blood sugar to rule out diabetes. Early detection and treatment of CKD not only slows or halts the progression of patients to end–state renal disease, but can also significantly reduce the increased incidence of cardiovascular diseases, the most common cause of premature deaths worldwide.
