Open defecation: Now, AMC plans 'hawan' 9.11.2017 DNA: Top News
Bad habits die hard! Somewhat similar is true for some occupants of around 1,100 housing units constructed with toilets as part of the Economically Weaker Sections (EWS) housing scheme at Jivan Jyot Apartment in Odhav which comes under the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation's (AMC) East Zone. Sources said though the city has received the title of Open Defecation (ODF) Free city in 2016, it is one such place where open defecation is still prevalent. Though these units have individual toilets, some occupants are using open space, especially their terraces for defecation. Now, to keep them away from such a practice, AMC has planned to rope in Gayatri Parivar to perform a 'Hawan'. It is on the lines of a practice to use wall tiles depicting gods to keep people from spitting tobacco. Earlier too, for behavioural change and motivate people to use toilets, former municipal commissioner D Thara had introduced a scheme 'Úse and Get' in which one was given a candy or Rs1 for using community toilet. "There are around ...

India workers rescued from farm after toiling 15 hour days for seven years 30.10.2017 deccanherald.com
Nearly 25 workers, including children, who worked 15 hour days for seven years, were rescued at the weekend at Baran in the western Indian state of Rajasthan, in a rare crackdown on farms where forced labour is rampant. Campaigners said the workers were from a tribe in the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh and were given loans ranging from 500 to 20,000 rupees ($8 to $308) before being taken to Rajasthan to work in the fields. "These people were trafficked from their home state with the lure of good work but kept bonded on the fields. They believed they were repaying the loans," said Nirmal Gorana, convener of the National Campaign Committee for Eradication of Bonded Labour, that took part in the rescue. Rescued workers said while they worked in the fields, their children worked at the employers house for no money. "The employers did not give them wages, but only packets of wheat. This too was to ensure they stayed alive to continue working on their fields," Gorana told the Thomson Reuters ...

Buying mawa this Diwali? Test it first 16.10.2017 DNA: Mumbai
It is festive times and also time when sweets are consumed in large quantities. It is also the time when adulterated sweets flood the markets. While the Flying Squad of Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation routinely checks samples to check adulterations, experts show how simple it is to see if the sweets you are eating are safe. "Mawa is a common ingredient used in most sweets and hence it is also the most adulterated. It is often adulterated with palm oil and rice starch. It is quite simple to see if the mawa you bought is pure," said Atul Soni, quality manager of AMC's Public Health Laboratory. "One can test the mawa sample using this simple test. Boil a small portion of mawa in water. Let it cool. Then add a few drops of iodine solution. If it turns blue, it means starch has been added to mawa for volume," he said. "Rub a little mawa on palm. Buy only if it leaves hands greasy and taste slightly sweet," he said. He also revealed simple secret to identify if that silver foil used to garnish sweets is pure ...
