up the Art of Living Foundation (ALF) for standing in the way of its expert panel which was to inspect the venue of the World Culture Festival hosted by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar in the floodplainof the Yamuna The body was scheduled to sketch out an action plan for rejuvenating the site which was overrun by giant structures and hordes of visitors in the course of the extravaganza and reckon the modicum of compensation which would make good the damage and restore the site to its former state But the NGT has only itself to blame if it now looks like a walkover After barring Sri Sri Ravi Shankar’s show on the ground that it would harm the ecosystem of the river it had backed off when it found itself served with a fait accompli by the spiritual leader Hectares of the flood plain had already been levelled and denuded of its natural vegetation (Sri Sri had earlier disparaged it as “weeds”) farms had been uprooted to make way for roads support infrastructure and a stage of about seven acres and an impressive guest list had been drawn up including a bishop a grand mufti the prime minister and the higher echelons of the Central and state governments Only the president had declined to attend the event But the NGT’s real comedown was the readiness with which it allowed the show to go ahead on the payment of Rs 25 lakh just five per cent of its initial demand of Rs 5 crore When a watchdog organisation backs off repeatedly it leaves behind the impression that it can be brushed off And now the ALF has prevented the NGT’s expert panel from inspecting the site in order to compute the final compensation figure and facilitate rejuvenation over the long term The incident has set several unfortunate precedents It has left behind the impression that it is legitimate to do environmental damage if compensation follows Further it suggests that compensation is not necessarily laid down by a court — if the authority of the tribunal is not absolute it can be

of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is interested in launching a mini-IPL and the most favoured venue to host the league is UAE according to a report in Gulf News “One concept that we are deliberating and considering is launching a mini edition of the IPL overseas We have seen that there is huge attraction for IPL overseas Earlier we used to stage our Champions League T20 abroad and that slot is still vacant We are thinking of a mini edition in that slot” Shukla told Gulf News “Dubai will be most favoured destination for the mini IPL” UAE had earlier held the first leg of the

broadcasters In fact broadcasters’ tenders will be out in July and we are expecting manifold rise in it” he said While Shukla said that the governing council may think about increasing the number of teams the number will remain eight for now “So far we have decided for eight teams only otherwise the season will get extended and that will be a problem If we go for 10 teams we will have to stage minimum 84 matches However the governing council will be considering it but so far the tender will be only for eight teams” he said “The Indian players had played in the IPL before the Champions

but also impact other aspects of child health Despite advances in health the incidence of mortality in India owing to childbirth-related causes inadequate neonatal care and childhood diseases continues to be very high Of the over 13 million deaths every year of children below the age of five a large number is caused by diseases like diarrhoea pneumonia and measles that can be prevented by vaccination Some districts have an under-five child mortality rate (U5MR) that is higher than that of sub-Saharan African countries For example Rayagada in Odisha has the highest U5MR of 133 deaths for 1000 live births And this is despite India having the world’s largest immunisation programme largely available free of cost Even though India’s Universal Immunisation Programme (UIP) is the largest in the world in terms of the number of beneficiaries as well as the quantity of vaccines used there is still a huge unreached population of 72 million out of the total 27 million children born annually Assam Bihar Madhya Pradesh Odisha Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh have immunisation levels lower than the national average Lack of awareness insufficient information as well as misperception about vaccination among some parents contribute to the lukewarm response to routine immunisation schemes initiated by the government so far The problem is further compounded by the inadequate public health system that does not have sufficient reach in some areas Share This Article Related Article Between 2009 and 2013 the immunisation coverage increased from 61 to 65 per cent that is with an increase of 1percentage point per year With 35 per cent of children still not receiving any or partial immunisation coverage the government has adopted a mission mode via Mission Indradhanush to immunise all children by 2020 against seven vaccine preventable diseases namely tuberculosis diphtheria pertussis tetanus poliomyelitis measles and hepatitis B But a lot more needs to be done India is lagging in meeting the challenge of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) with respect to targets to reduce the incidence of infant and under-5 child mortality rates It is ultimately up to the political class to rise to the challenge of raising awareness on the issues of childhood diseases and health Political will is needed to put the cause of child survival high on the list of the governance agenda Only that can ensure better coordination among various government departments that today work separately on preventive measures like hygiene sanitation nutrition and immunisation The successful eradication of polio with India not reporting a single case for the last four years has raised hopes that life-saving interventions can be replicated for other preventable diseases But that will not happen on its own It requires decisions to be taken and implemented Now that we have tasted success with polio we must boost routine immunisation by strengthening the health systems in terms of reach quality cost effectiveness and the introduction of new vaccines in the immunisation portfolio For this increased fiscal allocation is a must Immunisation can not only stem the vicious cycle of infectious diseases but also impact other aspects of child health Let’s look for instance at the link between immunisation and malnutrition There is a growing body of evidence that vaccines can help prevent some of the chronic consequences of malnourishment A recent study showed that children receiving the full immunisation coverage are less likely to display signs of stunting Malnutrition has deleterious effects on the overall development of the child extracting a lifelong toll of negative economic consequences Immunisation then also becomes a key strategy to help check the incidence of malnutrition and its long-term consequences and thus has a crucial role if India is to really benefit from a demographic dividend In addition to initiatives that target the public health delivery system directly key investments need to be made also in strengthening the hands of other stakeholders like domestic pharmaceutical companies Indian vaccine manufacturers have already established a global presence supplying for example a staggering 90 per cent of all measles vaccines worldwide as well as half of the World Health Organisation (WHO) demand for DPT and BCG vaccines against tuberculosis Appropriate government policies must incentivise Indian vaccine companies to enhance their manufacturing capabilities as well as R&D capabilities Government programmes such as Make in India can achieve these objectives by encouraging the transfer of those technologies and knowledge that are necessary for the autonomous development and manufacture of vaccines for both domestic and international markets Since India’s own domestic consumption of vaccines is also high as is the case with the international markets it serves this would be a win-win proposition The timing of such a policy-led boost can be crucial Recently there has emerged an uninformed but powerful anti-vaccination movement in the West that threatens to set back decades of health gains Measles is making a comeback in the US following several years of reduced vaccinations This has happened due to uninformed parents being influenced by the anti-vaccination rantings of self-styled gurus and celebrities Fortunately the likes of Hillary Clinton are pushing back pointing out the overwhelming scientific evidence in favour of vaccines Against this backdrop a bold renewed commitment by India to the immunisation imperative will help us deal with our own less than satisfactory record of combating childhood diseases And considering the looming year-end review of the MDGs India has a window of
