When the film awards season came around in early 2012, Gulshan Devaiah found himself surprisingly ill at ease. The new actor s performance in his 2011 releases That Girl in Yellow Boots, Dum Maaro Dum and Shaitan had, after all, made him a contender for a best debutant award. But at high profile gatherings, out of the protective shadow of the characters he played, he would be nervous and sweating buckets . He found himself squirming during the nomination parties; he was awkward on the red carpet and terrible at small talk. When the party later moved to Shah Rukh Khan s seaside bungalow, he could barely muster courage to chat with the famous host. All I wanted to do was go home, says the actor.READ MORE
After working in Atlanta for the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (US CDC) I moved back to Pakistan to set up a US CDC and Government of Pakistan collaborative programme, Pakistan Field Epidemiology and Laboratory Training Program (FELTP). FELTP offices were set up at the Pakistan Institute of Health (NIH). For the next 12 years, I was able to learn about its history, founders and challenges. I was awe struck with its founder ''s grand vision as it aligned very much close to US CDC ''s. They envisioned it to be a top health institute of not only Pakistan but of the region. In the 60s, when NIH was founded, no one wanted to live in Islamabad. And Chak Shahzad where NIH is located was a jungle away from Islamabad. Founders built housing facilities for its employees, a small market, and arranged transport for the employee ''s children to go to school. Then the best scientific minds were selected from across Pakistan and NIH reached its zenith. In scientific journals of the past era you will find references from NIH.The National Agriculture and Research Council (NARC) has the same history. In the coming years, successive governments lost interest in both NIH and NARC. In one instance a fully qualified professional was kept as an ”acting ” Executive Director of NIH for over six years. That showed the governments ' non serious attitude to a critical Pakistani institute. But both NIH and NARC have a curse. They also own hundreds of acres of land for their future expansions as was envisioned by their founders but is now valued in billions.

Each time the supply of this particular masala blend becomes erratic in Bengaluru, foodie groups on Facebook and WhatsApp start buzzing. I found two packets of Sindhi Biryani Masala at Aishwarya supermarket in Koramangala." Mega More on Sarjapur Road has Haleem and Bombay Biryani." Amazon has some varieties but they are only selling packs of 8, anyone want to split up the order?"Over the past decade, Shan, a packaged masala brand from Pakistan, has slowly invaded Indian kitchens. Fans of Shan follow developments in India Pakistan relations with a hawk eye, because often, escalating tensions at the border seem to result in the supply of Pakistani products in India becoming sparse and unpredictable. Last year, a few days after the attack on Indian forces in Pulwama, my husband turned to me and said, How are we doing on Shan?", a quiver of anxiety in his voice. I had stocked up on the biryani and korma masalas, I assured him, but we were running low on the haleem.

On the evening of April 27, 1962, patrolmen Frank Tomlinson and Stanley Kensic stopped Monroe X Jones and Fred X Jingles as they unloaded clothing out of the back of a Buick by the Nation of Islam s mosque in South Los Angeles. The ensuing altercation with police, dubbed a blazing gunfight and a riot by the Los Angeles Times, ended with seven unarmed Muslims in jured and one dead. William X Rogers was left paralyzed, and mosque secretary Ronald X Stokes was killed, shot through the heart as he walked toward officer Donald Weese with his palms raised toward the sky. Weese later told an all white coroner s jury that Stokes came towards me, chanting. He put his hands out I thought he was going to choke me. As the other men lay on the ground, handcuffed and bleeding, they held hands and chanted Alla hu akbar, God is most great. In August that same year, twelve Muslim men at Folsom Prison were holding a meeting in the prison yard when a sergeant began snapping photographs of the gathering. As the officer approached, one of the men proclaimed, They want to take our picture, so let s give them a good one. Another suggested that they face the east and pray to Allah. The group lined up with their hands raised waist high, palms facing up, and prayed.In both instances, Muslims in the Nation of Islam (NOI), confronted with police violence and state surveillance, responded with nonviolent protest in the form of prayer. Where do such stories fit within our narrative of the civil rights era? These episodes demonstrate that challenges to policing and prisons were central to the postwar Black Freedom movement, and the Nation of Islam was at the forefront of that struggle. They show Black Nationalism as an ideological current of Black politics, which continued to gain strength in the years between the dissolution of the United Negro Improvement Association in the interwar period and the rise of Black Power in the late 1960s, a period portrayed as Black Nationalist decline.

New Delhi: From starring in the TV show "Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai" for eight years to foray into Bollywood and the digital space, actress Hina Khan has carved a space in the entertainment industry. She feels it is not easy for a TV star to make it big in films."What we lack is equality. Nepotism exists everywhere and it does exist in our industry, too. If you are a star and you want to launch your kid, it''s absolutely okay. But, it is not fair when you don''t give an equal chance to outsiders. TV actors hardly make it big in Bollywood, just because we don''t get a fair chance. At least, give us a chance to prove ourselves," Hina said.
The court said that when pregnant women go for deliveries they cannot wait five to six days for carrying out the tests and declaration of the results. ;Immediately requests should be accepted and immediately results should be given,; the bench said.The Delhi government told the court that as per the advisory issued by the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), the tests results would be declared within an hour. The advisory was however silent on the timeline regarding processing of requests for testing, the Delhi government said, adding that it has issued a notification which states all applications for tests would be processed within 48 hours.The bench asked the Delhi government to place the advisory and notification before it and listed the matter for hearing on Thursday, July 9. The court also asked it whether negative outcome of a rapid test was acceptable or whether an RT PCR test result also be required before admitting a pregnant woman.The Delhi government counsel sought time to take instructions on the query raised by the bench. The court was hearing a PIL by a lawyer who has sought that test results of pregnant women be given priority.The high court on June 22 had remarked that 5 7 days cannot be taken for getting COVID 19 results for pregnant women prior to admitting them in hospitals for child birth and asked the ICMR and Delhi government to look at expediting it.Thereafter, Delhi government filed an affidavit stating that prior COVID 19 test was not mandatory for admitting pregnant women in hospitals for in patient interventions, including surgery and deliveries, and in emergent situations, treatment would not be denied for want of test results.The test can be conducted simultaneously with the treatment and if the result comes out to be positive, the pregnant woman would ideally be transferred to a dedicated COVID 19 hospital for further management, the Delhi government had told the high court.It had also said that it has "expanded " the use of Rapid Antigen Testing at hospitals to ensure availability of test results in quick time and this will further take care of difficulties being faced by people patients, including pregnant women.ICMR, in its response filed through central government standing counsel Vivek Goyal, had said it has issued guidelines for management of pregnant women during the COVID 19 pandemic and there are no restrictions for testing pregnant women for COVID l9 symptoms.
