Bleed with pride: Watch this woman's powerful video against menstruation stigma 28.5.2017 DNA: Top News
May 28 is Menstrual Hygiene Day which is an endeavour to promote menstrual hygiene and remove the stigma attached to this natural biological process for women. Even today, awareness about menstruation, easy availability of menstrual hygiene products and easy access to toilets, water, pads, soaps, and access to a proper disposal system is lacking. Helping girls and women properly manage their menstrual cycle without stigma is the need of the hour. Why we need to talk about menstrual hygiene Often women cannot manage their menstrual cycle and miss out on work, education and good opportunities. Also, women are considered inferior to men because of myths and taboos attached to menstruation. This results in gender inequality and widens the gender gap. Making men a part of the conversation: Menstruation is a natural process and should be acceptable by the society as a whole including men and boys. Including men into such conversations and sensitising them will create an environment of comfort and support for ...

24 Indians live in prison-like room in Riyadh after 'masters' seize passports 28.5.2017
Hyderabad:  Twenty-four young men from Telangana, Andhra Pradesh and Odisha were deceived by their consultants and have since then been suffering in a dingy room in Riyadh for the past two months. The consultants in Hyderabad processed the youths’ visas projecting them as skilled labourers such as fitters, draughtsmen, and plumbers. Once sent in five batches, the managers washed their hands off any responsibility regarding these youths, said a report in the Mumbai Mirror. Though shown as skilled workers, ‘masters’ in Riyadh offered these men unskilled jobs like cooking, ploughing, gardening and cleaning after seizing their passports. While speaking to Mirror over phone from Riyadh, one of the youths said, “When we express our inability to do the unskilled jobs, they are asking us to pay 12,600 riyals (nearly Rs 2.2 lakh in Indian currency) each to cancel the work agreement and return our passports”. The prison-like room with a single toilet to be shared by twenty-four, is a charity from other Telegus ...

Chennai: Shoddy re-laying of roads causes water to enter houses 28.5.2017
CHENNAI: Despite the Madras HC passing a directive for re-laying roads after milling the existing roads, work is being shoddily being carried out in different parts of the city. The level of the newly laid roads has become higher than the level of houses. As a result, water enters homes every time it rains. Residents are irked about the issue. From near Sadasiva Nagar to Tharamani road levels have been raised over the years. Due to this, the houses are now at a level lower than the roads. The problem occurs when roads are re-laid over existing roads and this is an issue across the city. Many areas suffered during the floods due to such issues. Residents in Korattur also face similar issues where the metro water pipelines have gone way below the level of their houses. To adjust with the road level, residents suggested increasing the height of the water pipeline. “Due to this road level rising each time roads are laid, during heavy rains, the rainwater gets mixed with the sewage water which became a big ...

Telangana: Flood funds go down the drain 28.5.2017
Hyderabad: Model House at Punjagutta, the RTA office in Khairatabad, the Chief Minister’s camp house, Bible House and 70 other places are critical water stagnation points in the city.  Funds are allocated every year to drain out water after a flash downpour but it is all literally water down the drain as the problem persists. This suits civil contractors only too well, being an annual cash cow.  Stagnation points are those where large amounts of rain water accumulate due to the absence of drains or because existing drains are clogged or encroached upon, impeding the free flow of water or where roads are situated in low-lying areas.  The GHMC has categorised the water stagnation areas as critical, major, and minor. There are 12 critical spots, such as opposite NIMS Hospital, and Oliphanta Bridge in Secunderabad. So much water accumulates in these areas that traffic can be thrown out of gear for hours.  Rain water also accumulates when a road is situated in a low-lying area, as for instance near Raj ...

Telangana: Pre-monsoon preparedness is the golden goose for civil contractors. 28.5.2017
Hyderabad: “Pre-monsoon preparedness” is the golden goose for civil contractors. Every year they bag lucrative contracts from the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation and due to poor oversight by the municipal corporation, get inflated bills passed and rake in a hefty profit. This year the GHMC has shelled out Rs 27 crore on monsoon preparedness towards road repairs, de-silting of nalas and cleaning of storm water drains.  Clearing water-logging Pothole filling before the monsoon De-silting of nalas and storm water drains. The two heads under which contractors earn is labour charges and vehicles pressed into operation.  GHMC pays contractors as per the standard rate per shift, that is, Rs 1,500 for two shifts. However, contractors get unskilled labour from villages and pay them half the amount, earning a tidy profit for themselves and producing shoddy work with an unskilled workforce. The second way in which the contract is lucrative is in falsifying the amount of work done. So where 10 km of a drain ...
