India home to around 50% of malnourished children in world: New study 1.11.2017 DNA: India

DNA THEME: Bride & prejudice... How SC ruling can help 30.10.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
The recent Supreme Court ruling that sex with a minor wife amounts to rape, could be a game changer for underage girls aged between 0 and 19 years in the state who are already mothers. This judgment will indisputably correct the view that early marriage is a serious infringement of child rights. According to the 2011 Census, 31.6 per cent girls in Rajasthan were married off before the age of 18. A more recent survey by the National Family Health Survey (NFHS-4) 2015-16 pointed to an even higher number, with 35.4 per cent of girls aged between 20 and 24 years got married off before attaining the legal age. Hook or by crook, this progressive decision will not only break the social orthodoxy but will also help in improving the health scenario of the state. Maternal mortality and infant mortality rates are closely linked to early marriages. A UNICEF study revealed that early marriage hinders educational attainment, which then leads to poor maternal health and higher infant mortality rates. Child-bearing at a ...

No benefits for state under BJP rule: Cong 14.10.2017 DNA: Top News
The Congress on Friday questioned the Gujarat model of development citing a recent Niti Aayog report. “These are not random figures. These are statistics of the Niti Aayog and show the poor Human Development Indices (HDI) of Gujarat, a state that is often touted as the model of development,” said former Maharashtra Chief Minister and senior Congress leader Prithviraj Chavan. He said Gujarat ranks 22 in primary school enrollment, 23 in Infant Mortality Rates and 21 in child undernourishment. “Where is the development and who is benefitting from it?”asked Chavan. The Congress also said that the poor implementation of GST and the ill-conceived demonetisation had practically crippled the economy. “It has hit small businessmen the most,”said Chavan. The party also criticised the Election Commission’s decision not to announce the Assembly election dates for Gujarat.“The Election Commission is now being jokingly referred to as the Election Omission. It is obvious that the delay in announcement is being done to ...
