In Vitro Fertilization IVF Malpractices

In Health on December 10, 2014 at 11:19

Child birth in an area which is proving to be lucrative for Doctors.

 

You are asked to have a check up monthly from the 45th day .

 

Scan is recommended at least twice.

Causes for Infertility

 

You are advised to undergo Natural delivery.

 

But the message is delivered skilfully to make you go in for Caesarian.

 

What has been normal  about  50 years ago has become a cause for tension while Doctors pay lip service to Natural delivery.

You are advised to take all sorts of Pills, especially Iron and calcium.

 

Nobody tells you that excess consumption of Iron gets thrown out and excess Calcium weakens the bones.

 

Simple procedure is to take natural foods like Greens,Dates, Pomegranate .

 

You would be surprised at the Doctor advising you of ‘ some concern  about the Baby’ as your delivery date nears;he would skilfully manipulate you for Caesarian.

 

This post is about malpractices in Infertility treatment, but I could not resist about mentioning what is being practiced for normal pregnancy.

 

Today a Normal delivery costs anywhere between  25, 000 to Rupees one lakh!

 

Now to Malpractices in Infertility treatment.

 

1.

is only required when there is no uterus and donor eggs are required when the ovaries have either stopped functioning or have been removed. But, as both these procedures add to the costs, doctors recommend them even when they are not necessary. For example, a woman may need just one prescription of drugs for

Rs 1,500, but she is sold surrogacy for lakhs of rupees. This kind of prognosis plays on the stigma associated with an infertile woman.

 

2.Secondly, infertility doctors often do not have adequate training in the hardware and software required for ivf. There are no checks and balances such as accreditation. In India, any mbbs graduate can do it without any training. Thus, any doctor can open an infertility clinic.

3.Thirdly, malpractices are encouraged by kickbacks from pharmaceutical companies. If a doctor prescribes hormones costing between Rs 1,000 and Rs 5 lakh in one cycle, he gets up to 60 percent of that amount from the pharma company. A doctor makes money by prescribing drugs to patients. That is why they often prescribe over-dosages. The child may never be born, but the doctor will make money. A drug company promotes hormone injections like toothpaste or any other non-medical product. The more a drug is prescribed, the more profitable it is for both the company and the doctors.’

 

The issue becomes even more complicated when the Patient Googles, finds some results, gets  confused and forces the doctor to prescribe and procedures even more.

 

Be careful in choosing a doctor who is not greedy and who cares for patients.

 

There are many around still.

 

Mind you there are not costly .

 

Please avoid specialty Hospitals, especially the Five Star Hotels, sorry Hospitals.

Child Soldiers Of India

In human interest on December 10, 2014 at 09:09

While the talks of saving children , children being used as bonded labor, Terrorist Groups like LTTE using child soldiers, media India has so far not high lighted the child soldiers of India.

 

 

The information below is based on the Report of the Secretary-General to the Security Council (A/68/878–S/2014/339) issued on 15 May 2014.

The recruitment and use of children, as young as 6 years of age, by Maoist armed groups in India, also known as Naxalites, continued in 2013. Although no disaggregated data on the number of children associated with armed groups in India was available to the United Nations, independent estimates indicate that at least 2,500 children are associated with armed groups in Naxal-affected areas. Notably, Naxalite recruitment also continued to affect girls and women. According to the Ministry of Home Affairs, boys and girls between 6 and 12 years of age were recruited into specific childr…[+]

India Denies that there are child soldiers!

n 2012, another spate of child soldier recruitment was reported from . TEHELKA in its investigation, Why children are picking up the gun (14 July 2012) profiled around 10 cases of abduction that had surfaced in the Imphal valley alone in 2012. Parents alleged that minors are being abducted or lured by rebel groups to be trained as child soldiers. According to Police sources, at least 66 children aged between eight and 17, have been kidnapped and recruited as child soldiers by the rebels in in the past five years.

“The actual number is much higher, but many parents do not report abductions to the police, fearing retribution from the rebel outfits,” says Montu Ahanthem of the Alliance for Child Rights. “A commitment to seek a political solution to end the long-drawn armed conflict, instead of a repressive militarisation policy, is clearly missing on the part of the government, and the children end up as victims. In conflict-torn areas, child rights face extraordinary denial and violation.”

Forget political will to keep children away from armed conflict, it seems New believes in denying that the problem even exists. In 2011, in its first ever report to the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child, on the ‘Optional Protocol to the Convention on the Rights of the Child on the involvement of children in armed conflict’ India categorically stated that the country “does not face either international or non-international armed conflict situation”. The report was prepared by the Union Ministry of Women and Child Development.

The government’s denial of armed conflict involving ‘child soldiers’ recruited by terror groups has irked rights activists.

Why Gita Should Not Be India’s National Scripture

In Uncategorized on December 9, 2014 at 20:44

The Bhagavad Gita should not be declared as India,s National Sacred Text,

 

Because it

 

Gita quote.jpg

Gita quote.

 

talks of Humanity as a whole,

 

does not attempt to proselytize,

 

it was delivered by One whose Historicity is proved,

 

And not by one whose life and teachings were chosen to be written  three hundred years after his death, for some one’s political  convenience,

 

it is not by one who remembered moral teachings after some time it was given to him by God ,that too noting it from a Stone,

 

 

synthesizes  all religious thoughts,

 

does not advocate Bigotry,

 

it addresses Human issues,

 

it transcends Races, Nations, Religions,

 

it instills hope in the Minds of Man,

 

it does not order you to follow it,

 

it does not ask you to propagate your religion by killing,

 

it delivers one from depression and confusion,

 

it speaks of Human values like Compassion, Duty,Honor,Love to all Beings ,

 

it is objected to by the paragons of virtue in Indian Parliament,

 

especially by Sage Karunanidhi and mainly because

 

it is by an Indian in the Indian soil to Mankind.

 

News.

 

PM Modi gifted the Gita to US President Barack Obama, which means it has already received the honour of a national scripture. What we require is only a formal announcement now,” Sushma Swaraj said in a public meeting to mark 5,151 years of the Bhagavad Gita at the Red Fort.

Underscoring the importance of the Gita’s role in daily life, she said its message to perform one’s duty without feeling attached to its outcome is what guides her sense of duty at the ministry.

The Gita, believed to be the advice of Lord Krishna, is a 700-verse Hindu scripture that is part of the epic Mahabharata. Its call for selfless action inspired many leaders of the independence movement, including Mahatma Gandhi who referred to the Gita as his ‘spiritual dictionary’.”

World History Timeline By Rigveda

In Hinduism on December 3, 2014 at 16:51

Of late I have been researching into the connection between Tamil and Sanatana Dharma, though I have posted a few articles on the subject earlier.

 

I have been able to confirm to myself the following.

 

1.The Tamil, Dravida and the Sanatan Dharma were closely connected and people were interacting with each other.

 

Kaala Chakra, world Tie Line by Rig Veda.png

Kaala Chakra, world Tie Line by Rig Veda.

 

2.Historical Characters like Krishna, Sahadeva and Arjuna traveled to the South and Krishna and Arjuna married Dravidian women, had  children through them.

 

3.The Tamil Kings were held in such high esteem that one of them Udiyan Cheralathan was in charge of feeding both the Kaurava and Pandava Armies during the Mahabharata Battle.

 

3.Sage Agasthya , who is presumed to have founded the Tamil Language is the same one who wrote the Rig Vedic Hymns 166 to 190.

 

4.Agasthya crossed the Vindhyas to enter Dravidian Territory.

 

5.Kumari Kandam is not a figment of Tamil Imagination.

 

6.Various references about Tamil in the Vedas,Puranas,Ramayana and Mahabharata and by Tamil in Tholkaapiyam,Silappadikaara and Manimekalai about Sanatana Dharma check out.

 

I have been able to check the dates and events with the help of Astronomical Data found in Tamil and Sanskrit Literature,Vedas, Puranas, Ramayana and Mahabharata.

 

This has been done with the help of Star Canopus, called Agasthya, mentioned in Tamil Classics and Sanskrit.

 

I wanted to cross verify this with the help of references found on Time in the Rig Veda.

 

Rig Veda , the earliest literature known to Man speaks of Time as a Wheel, thereby denoting that Time is Cyclic.

 

I have posted a detailed article on ‘Time, Non-Linear, Cyclic’

 

rvs.1.164.2:-
RV_1,164.02a sapta yuñjanti ratham ekacakram eko aśvo vahati saptanāmā |
RV_1,164.02c trinābhi cakram ajaram anarvaṃ yatremā viśvā bhuvanādhi tasthuḥ ||

Seven {sapta} are yoked {yuñjanti} to the Chariot {ratham} with a single-wheel {ekacakram} and a single horse {eko aśvo} with seven people (seven names) {saptanāmā} inside it. The wheel has three navels {trinābhi}. It is ageless {ajaram} and un-decaying {anarvam}. On it are staying {tasthuh} all the beings of the world {viśvā bhuvanādhi}.

The seven yoked entities mentioned here represents the seven days of the week constituting the first quarter of a fortnight. It is also represented in Epics and Puranas as the seven horses of the Chariot of Surya (the Sun) alluding to the seven rays of the sun (seven colors in sunlight). The seven people who rides the chariot could be an indirect references to the Seven Sages (Saptarshis). The Chariot here represent the Sun whose apparent motion in Earth’s sky is what facilitates the time measurements done using the wheel of time. The Chariot could also represents the constellation of the seven stars (Big Dipper;- Saptarshi constellation) which also helps to measure long units of time.

The ‘navel’ of the wheel mentioned here represents ‘gear’. Thus the wheel is envisaged as a machinery with three gears to change the three levels of time measurement using the same wheel of time viz. 1) hours in the day, 2) months and seasons in the year and 3) twelve zodiacal ages and four (or eight) Yugas in the Great Year (axial precession period, 25,776 years). The beings of the world depends on this wheel since the daily, yearly and precessional changes in the time indicated by this wheel of time affect all beings.

 

rvs.1.164.3:-
RV_1,164.03a imaṃ ratham adhi ye sapta tasthuḥ saptacakraṃ sapta vahanty aśvāḥ |
RV_1,164.03c sapta svasāro abhi saṃ navante yatra gavāṃ nihitā sapta nāma ||

In this Chariot {ratham}, resides {tasthuh} the seven {sapta}. It has seven-wheels {saptachakram} and is driven by seven horses {sapta vahanty aśvāḥ}. The Seven sisters { sapta svasāro} praises the Cow {gavāṃ} and the seven people (seven names) {sapta nāma}.

This verse again describes the Seven Sages (Seven Names) residing in the Chariot (the Sun) this time mentioned as having seven horses (like in Epics and Puranas) and as having seven wheels. The Seven Sisters represent river Sarasvati and the nearby rivers and is a theme repeated in Vedas. The Cow represents the Year. The significance of seven wheels is unknown. It could mean the seven zodiacal ages that had elapsed during the composition of this hymn.

 

rvs.1.164.11:-
RV_1,164.11a dvādaśāraṃ nahi taj jarāya varvarti cakram pari dyām ṛtasya |
RV_1,164.11c ā putrā agne mithunāso atra sapta śatāni viṃśatiś ca tasthuḥ ||by length of time,

By Universal-Order {ṛtasya} this wheel {cakram} of time having twelve-spokes {dvādaśāraṃ} revolves {varvarti} in the sky {dyām}, without ever weakening or aging {nahi taj jarāya}. O Agni {agne}, On it stays, in pairs {mithunāso}, 720 sons {putrā}.

The word Rta, means Universal Order, Universal Law, the Laws of Physics or the Laws of Cosmology. Here the wheel is mentioned as having twelve spokes, to measure out twelve months in a year and twelve ages in a Great Year (25,776 years). The strange number 720 mentioned here as number of sons attached to the wheel is interesting. As per Graham Hancock this could mean the 72 years taken by the wheel to move 1 degrees (71.6 approximated as 72). However 720 is also twice 360. The meaning here thus represent 720 spokes which are paired, each spoke representing 1/2 degree (36 years) and a pair of spokes representing 1 degree (72 years).

Similarly in a human lineage, if 720 sons are born at an interval of 36 years (ie father begets a sun at his 36th age, on an average) then the total duration would be 720 x 36 = 25920 years, very close to the precession period of 25,776 yeas. Due to this simplicity, the number 72, its half 36 and its half 18 with or without zeros are frequently found in the Vedas, Epics and Puranas. Similarly the multiples of 72 like 144, 216, 432 with or without zeros too are found. Besides 36 + 72 = 108 is a very special number in ancient Indian traditions.

The number of Parvas in Mahabharata is 18; number of days Kurukshetra War is fought is 18. The time gap between Kurukshetra War and submergence of Dwaraka is 36. Duration of ChaturYuga mentioned in Shanti Parva of Mahabharata is 4,320,000.

 

rvs.1.164.48:-
RV_1,164.48a dvādaśa pradhayaś cakram ekaṃ trīṇi nabhyāni ka u tac ciketa |
RV_1,164.48c tasmin sākaṃ triśatā na śaṅkavo ‘rpitāḥ ṣaṣṭir na calācalāsaḥ ||

Twelve {dvādaśa} are the major-spokes {pradhayaś}, and the wheel {cakram} is single {ekaṃ}; three {trīṇi} are the naves {nabhyā}. Who hath understood it {ka u tac ciketa}?
On it are set together 360 spokes, which cannot be loosened {na calācalāsaḥ}.

Here the Wheel of Time with 12 spokes to define 12 zodiac signs is mentioned as having 360 sub-spokes for measuring each each day of the year and each degree of movement of Vernal Equinox in every 72 years. It is mentioned as having three naves (gears of modes of operation, to measure hours in a day, months in a year and zodiacal ages in a Great Year). The verse generate curiosity in the mind of reader or reciter asking if they have any understanding of it.

Rig Veda also mentions frequently about the Cow and the Calf when it discusses about the wheel of time. Cow represent a year and Calf the residual time that is left which needs adding of few days after the expiry of few years to correct the calender. This residue is a by product of approximation of the year as 360 days, 365 days, 365.25 days or as 365.2522 days. Hence the year is rightly called the Cow and the residue the Calf.

Eg:- RV_1,164.05c (the yearling Calf {vatsa}); RV_1,164.09c the Calf {vatsa} lowed, and looked upon the Mother, the Cow.

 

References of the Wheel of Time in Mahabharata are subsequent to those found in the Vedas. They often supplement the references in the Vedas and increase their clarity.

Mbh.1.3

Three hundred and sixty cows represented by three hundred and sixty days produce one calf between them which is the year. That calf is the creator and destroyer of all. Seekers of truth following different routes, draw the milk of true knowledge with its help. Ye Aswins, ye are the creators of that calf!

The 360 cows thus represents 360 degrees and erroneously to 360 days in a year. The calf represent the residual time to complete one year. The residue in case of 360 days will be 5 days, in case of 365 days will be 1/4 day, in case of 365.25 days will be 11 minutes and so on and this chase will lead one to the secret knowledge about the precession of equinox and the wheel of time.

Indian Fishermen Illegal Entry into Sri Lanka Facts

In India on November 30, 2014 at 21:02

Tamil Nadu Fishermen who had been arrested on charge of transgressing into Sri Lanka waters were later charged with Possession of Drugs and smuggling it.

 

They were sentenced to death by a Court in Sri Lanka.

Fishermen.jpg

Fishermen.

 

There was a political storm in Taiml Nadu over this issue stating that these five persons were framed on both counts, that of entering Lankan Waters and smuggling drugs.

 

The Government of India under Narendra Modi negotiated with the Lankan Government and had the death sentence canceled

 

The issue of Tamil Nadu reportedly entering  and fishing in Lankan waters illegally has been a vexatious one.

 

Lankan Government states that fishermen from Tamil Nadu enter Lanka illegally on a regular basis for Fishing, while the Fishermen deny it and the Government of Tamil Nadu is with the Fishermen.

 

I have a few posts on this.

 

I have a few questions.

 

Either the Fishermen cross illegally into Lanka Waters and in that case Sri Lanka is perfectly right in arresting them.

 

Or Sr Lanka is lying in which case India should make  Public issue of it, talk to Lanka and if necessary internationalize the issue.

 

The second is not happening.

 

India has a Coast Guard which can find the facts and if necessary direct the erring fishermen who stray into Lankan waters to Indian Waters.

 

This has not happened nor any statement on this subject by the Coast Guard coming in.

 

The Coast Guard, if it is unable to find who intrudes into or goes out of Indian Waters, then it is useless.

 

What exactly is the position?

 

I checked  the issue with my sources in the Coast Guard.

 

The fact is that the Fishermen regularly enter into Lankan waters illegally for Fishing.

 

The Coast Guard are unable to counter or stop it because of Political Interference.

 

Sri Lanka is right in their statement that the Fishermen enter illegally.

 

This, the government of India is aware, both the Center and the State.

 

None of them want to address the issue because vote-bank Politics.

 

India secured the release  of the fishermen sentenced to death as a political quid pro quo with Lanka.

 

What people forget is this problem unless addressed to honestly without fear of Votes would help Indian Fishermen in the long run.

 

For obvious reasons my source must remain anonymous.

 

What is shocking is the fact that a couple of Tamil News papers are aware of this fact and are scared to point this out for fear of retaliation in Tamil Nadu.

 

The causality is Truth and Honesty
