No systemic measures yet in disaster management 28.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
Disaster management wears different attires in various disaster seasons. Let's start with a paradox: according to the latest Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) figures, more than 1,600 people have died in the recent past due to extreme weather events. However, we will never know the exact number of people who have died in heat waves, farmer suicides and cold waves. Of late, the National Disaster Management Agency (NDMA) has been burdened to deal with multiple natural and man-made disasters. Emerging research has shown that climate change is ushering in atmospheric and geological changes, which is throwing up newer future catastrophes. In 2016, the NDMA released the National Disaster Management Plan. This is a step forward in the right direction, but implementation of the plan document is still a far cry.

Go light this summer! 28.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Summer is upon us and the heat in the city is slowly becoming unbearable. While it is always tempting to indulge in some snacks and junk food after college or work, it is also important to understand that one's stomach needs to be kept healthy, especially during this season. Indulging in really spicy and heavy food may wreak havoc on the digestive system and also invite other ailments during this time. The key, as many suggest, is eating light. Bijal Kapasi, academic head of a pre-school chain, says, "I consume a lot of juices, water and citrus fruits to keep myself hydrated. During summer, the mechanism of digestion slows down due to the heat and heavy food takes time to get digested. I prefer to eat curd rice for lunch and soups and salads for dinner. If I am more hungry, I add a 'roti' with a lightly spiced 'subzi' to my meal." She adds that for snacking, she usually takes slices of cucumber, roasted peanuts with jaggery and homemade energy bars. "These fill up your tummy and also energise you." Dr ...

Dive into the pool now! 28.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Everyone has heard of how swimming can reduce stress, but did you know swimming can also reduce depression. Depression is not simply sadness, or feeling down in the dumps. Depression is considered an illness that occurs as a result of chemical imbalances in the brain. Chemicals in the brain are responsible for mood control, and when they are out of balance, a person can feel upset even if there is nothing wrong in their life. Their emotions might range from emotional guilt or apathy to physical afflictions such as weight loss or weight gain. A number of researchers and psychologists alike have become true believers in the efficacy of swimming when it comes to reducing depression. So, how does swimming make you happier? Exercise for smiles Any form of aerobic exercise stimulates the brain chemicals leading to producing ANP, a stress-reducing hormone which helps control the brain's response to stress and anxiety. However, a number of people have found that taking a plunge into a pool has relieved them of ...
