Students of the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad, have chosen off beat sectors with unconventional roles to pursue their internship this year. These include joining new startups, the public policy sector, NGOs, etc. Students of the 2017-2019 batch have dared to look beyond the conventional definition of a successful career of a management graduate by choosing social sectors.

He worked for Internet Saathi, which is an initiative by Google and Tata Trusts to address the huge gender gap in the digital literacy in the rural areas. The advanced phase of the Internet Saathi programme is Digital Livelihood (DL), wherein saathis (rural women) are provided opportunities to generate an income leveraging digital technology along with bringing value to the community at large.

Indonesia's crackdown against LGBT rights fuels HIV cases: Human Rights Watch 2.7.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
A crackdown on Indonesia's LGBT community is fuelling a spike in HIV cases as at-risk people avoid prevention services or seeking treatment, Human Rights Watch (HRW) said on Monday.  Conservative politicians and hardline Islamist groups have been increasingly vocal against the vulnerable community in recent years, while lawmakers eyed outlawing gay sex in the world's biggest Muslim majority country. Police conducted "arbitrary and unlawful" raids on places frequented by LGBT people including saunas, nightclubs, hotel rooms, hair salons, and even private homes, HRW said. That has discouraged some at-risk groups from accessing prevention and treatment services, according to the report entitled 'Scared in Public and Now No Privacy: Human Rights and Public Health Impacts of Indonesia's Anti-LGBT Moral Panic'. As a result, HIV rates among men who have sex with other men have soared five-fold since 2007 from 5.0 per cent to 25 per cent, HRW said, adding that the group accounted for one-third of Indonesia's new ...

A tryst with the young girls of Jananidham 2.7.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
Smelling and feeling the first rain of the season, last week, I was led into Jananidham with Kumkum Tilak and a Tulsi plant, by little girls, Sneha and Jasmine. They were dressed in white, frilly frocks with sequins and welcomed us with a song and dance. The innocent happiness on their faces touched me, just as the gentle rain fell all around this little haven, nestled on the banks of the Tapi River. Specially run by a Community Based Organisation, Jananidham is home for orphan and destitute children with HIV. We then interacted with the fifty girls, from age 6 to 22, staying there. I was moved by their dreams and aspirations, as they lived as one beautiful family. Attending regular school, vocational classes, creating handicrafts ranging from cards, bead jewels, stuffed toys and paintings, these girls were amazing in their creativity, too. Starting the day at 4.30 AM, their daily schedule includes prayers, Yoga, recreation and play, in addition to a full day at school. Since these are HIV positive ...

Doctors Day: Here are a few doctors in old Delhi who treat poor free of cost 1.7.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
From running street clinics to giving free-of-cost treatment to poor and homeless, many doctors in old Delhi's Chandni Chowk area are going beyond their line of duty to serve people. A team of three doctors set up a street clinic near the Baptist Church every morning to tend to the poor before going to their work. "I come here for two hours in the morning, tend to those with wounds and then go for my job at a charitable dispensary in Karol Bagh," said Tahir Hussein, one of the doctors who volunteers everyday. The Walled City is home to many needy, including rickshaw-pullers and rag-pickers, who spend their daily lives on streets and pavements and do not have access to proper medical care. National Doctors Day is marked today across the country to recognise the contributions of physicians to individual lives and communities. In India, it commemorates the legacy of legendary doctor and former West Bengal chief minister Bidhan Chandra Roy, who was born on this day in 1882. The street clinic, run for the ...
