MALNUTRITION RISING GLOBAL NUTRITION REPORT

MALNUTRITION RISING : GLOBAL NUTRITION REPORT

Few challenges facing the global community today match the scale of malnutrition, a condition that directly affects one in three people. Malnutrition manifests itself in many different ways: as poor child growth and development, as individuals who are skin and bone or prone to infection, as those who are carrying too much weight or whose blood contains too much sugar,salt,fat,cholesterol or those who are deficient in important vitamins and minerals.


Malnutrition or undernourishment is a condition that results from eating a diet in which nutrients are either not enough or are too much that the diet causes health problems.
With over 1.45 lakh children under the age of six in Gujarat identified with Severe Acute Malnutrition (SAM), the state fails to identify any specific targets in their mission statements to overcome malnutrition, reveals the latest edition of Global Nutrition Report (GNR) . Also, the lack of coordination between health and Women and Child Development (WCD) departments has also been highlighted in the report.
The GNR partnered with the World Health Organisation (WHO) released on June 14 reveals that out of six states that have declared commitment to nutrition in the form of independent state nutrition mission, only two states have clear, measurable time bound targets for improvements in nutrition outcomes.
The report states -- Only two of the six states have clear, measurable targets for nutritional outcomes-- Uttar Pradesh State Nutrition Mission and Odisha's Nutrition Operation Plan. 


The action plan of Maharashtra's Rajmata Jijau Mother-Child Health and Nutrition Mission includes monitoring of ten important indicators related to maternal and child health but does not specify measurable targets and time frames for these indicators. The states of Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and Karnataka do not include any specific targets in their mission statements.
Hence, all the states should equally carry out their mission to eradicate the problem of malnutrition. We all should come forward and take this up as a serious problem. Let's join hands with the state and try to solve this problem.

What Daniel Fernandes's Shadows Is All About

Shadows: A Revelatory Special

I walked into Terna Auditorium on Sunday Night expecting a special set by a comedian I had seen perform live on a previous occasion and had seen videos of on YouTube. Daniel Fernandes went above and beyond that. At the outset he cautions the audience, that his self admittedly social commentary centred style of humour that has gained an instant association with him would not be a feature tonight.
His piece is a reflective one, touching upon self-doubt, his journey of self-discovery, his moment of truth and his foray into comedy. He discusses at length the various paradigms and notions of success that pervade society without sounding preachy. And how while non-conformity can be a lonely place, it isn’t the worst.
Fernandes’ takes on the mantle of a voice in our head and says everything that naturally occurs to us but social conditioning prevents us from expressing vocally.   Through an anecdotal and a canonical sense of humour, he narrates his evolving len…
