From Canes To Caring Hands
Spare the rod and spoil the child’ is a maxim that we have all heard — well, at least until recently. Spankings and scoldings were an integral part of classroom teaching and most people have spent many a sleepless night dreading the thought of facing an angry teacher the next day.         But punishment has gone beyond the realm of the acceptable in recent years and is equivalent with child abuse now. Even after a landmark judgement barring the...

In recent years, however, better techniques and advanced methods have radically improved outcomes, made the procedure more patient-friendly and longer lasting.

She

Living Two Conflicting Roles
The first thing I notice on meeting Bryony Tyrell, is that the petite 36-year-old is hobbling. As she ushers me into her Southampton home and puts the kettle on, it’s hard to reconcile this intensive care nurse and mum-of-two with the painful-looking limp she got just the night before. Because — as well as looking after her kids (Amber, 8, and Soren, 4) and undertaking life-saving work, there’s another side to cheerful Bryony: she’s a champion cage fighter.Cage...
Health Matters
Mrs Sharma, a homemaker, led an idyllic life — her husband was in a well-placed job, both her children were doing well in studies, and the happy family lived on the second floor of a house in a lovely locality in Delhi. It was when she turned 50 that her health started to go downhill gradually. She developed aches and pains in various areas, but did not pay much attention to them as her priority was taking care of her family. There wasn’t enough time after all household chores.By...
She Can Guide Too
In popular imagination, a tourist guide is usually a man who accosts people outside monuments and other historical sites offering guided excursions. This image has been further reinforced by the 1965 classic film Guide, where Dev Anand transforms into Raju, a happy-go-lucky freelance guide. However, think for a moment — instead, is it possible to imagine a woman step into Raju’s shoes, as the footloose, fancy-free guide? Perhaps not, due to the stigma attached to this vocation....
'when Life Gives You Lemons, Make Margaritas'
Renu Khator’s life journey has been an inspiring one. Born in Farrukhabad, Uttar Pradesh, in 1955, she had an arranged marriage in 1974 and moved to the United States with her husband a year later, with hardly any knowledge of the English language. In 2008, Renu became the chancellor of the University of Houston System and president of the University of Houston, the first Indian American to head a comprehensive research university in the United States.“From the very first day,...
Health Worker To Involved Life Coach
For nearly two decades Poonam Tiwari, 47, was a family planning worker whose job was essentially about collecting statistics. This was in the area around Kanpur in Uttar Pradesh. Although she had been tasked with visiting homes where she was supposed to talk to couples, elderly members in the family and even young women, about contraception methods, institutional child birth, proper spacing between children and the pitfalls of early marriage, she never felt competent enough to give them such...

Tommy Singh, the rock star, gets on a pulsating stage and thrusts around with lyrics that have everything to do with drugs. He also rhymes the lines. “Coke-cock,” anyone?It’s raw.
