Pak 'processing' visa applications of Jadhav's wife, mother 17.12.2017 deccanherald.com
Pakistan today said the visa applications of Kulbhushan Jadhavs wife and mother had been received and were being "processed", days after it again rejected Indias plea for consular access to the death row prisoner. Pakistans Foreign Office spokesman Mohammad Faisal confirmed in a tweet that Jadhavs family had applied for visas. "Visa applications of mother and wife of Commander Jadhav received for their visit on humanitarian grounds," Faisal tweeted. He further said the applications were "being processed" but did not give any time line for approval of visas. On Wednesday, Pakistan had rejected Indias plea for consular access to Jadhav at the ICJ, claiming that New Delhi wants the access to get the information gathered by its "spy". In its counter-memorial submitted to the International Court of Justice (ICJ), Pakistan said the provision of such an access under the Vienna Convention is only for legitimate visitors and not for spies, a media report said. Pakistan said that Jadhav is not an ordinary person ...
IMA opposes draft National Medical Commission bill 17.12.2017 deccanherald.com
The IMA has strongly opposed the draft Bill that seeks to replace the Medical Council of India with a new body, claiming it will cripple the medical profession. The draft National Medical Commission bill was yesterday approved by the Cabinet. It provides for the constitution of four autonomous boards entrusted with conducting undergraduate and postgraduate education, assessment and accreditation of medical institutions and registration of practitioners under the National Medical Commission. Indian Medical Association president Dr K K Agarwal appealed to the prime minister to revise the draft bill in the larger interest of the medical profession. According to the IMA, the NMC will "cripple" the functioning of the medical profession by making it completely answerable to the bureaucracy and non-medical administrators. "Regulators need to have autonomy and be independent of the administrators. The National Medical Commission will be a regulator appointed by the administrators under their direct control," ...

Tough to find, horrendous to use: Public toilet, women edition 16.12.2017 Deccan Herald - City
Ask Bengalureans to reach a consensus on one issue and they would definitely cry out aloud: The struggle to find a public washroom and the pathetic condition of the existing ones. This problem only gets worse for women. They are either left hunting for toilets in malls or simply suffer due to the lack of a basic amenity. Bengaluru, notes civil services aspirant Rashmi Gowda Ramachandra, might be seeing some improvement technologically. "But one recurring problem that is receiving negligible attention both from the municipal authorities and government is the provision of public toilets, restrooms and nursing centres for pregnant women," she laments. Not only does the city let down the women who step out of their homes but it also puts the womens safety at risk. "It is a popular stereotype that compared to men, women are more worried about hygiene and cleanliness. Even to complain about cleanliness, there are no public toilets around my locality. If I am outside, it is either my workplace, a mall or back ...
