new HIV positive cases by 2030 the Mumbai District Aids Control Society (MDACS) has started signing Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) with private nursing homes to start registering pregnant women testing positive for the virus for free treatment This program is to specifically ensure that no newborn is detected with HIV virus Raw data collected by the agency recently observed a high incidence of the terminal disease transfer from pregnant women specifically in slum pockets across Mumbai “On our random survey social workers found that pregnant women form the intermediary platform for disease transmission In almost all cases the infection passes on from the husband When a woman is tested we also test the husband” said Dr Shrikala Acharya director MDACS Share This Article Related Article MDACS has so far signed MoUs with 26 nursing homes in Mumbai As part of the agreement free testing kits are provided to the hospitals along with facility to provide free treatment to pregnant women Each infected woman is registered with the National Aids Control Society (NACO) for commencing anti-retroviral treatment (ART) Currently the organisation is registering nursing homes in high-burden wards—P South (Goregaon) P North (Malad West) R South (Kandivali) R Central (Boriwali) R North (Dahisar) and M East (Govandi) According to civic data maximum births are recorded in these wards According to experts the risk of HIV transmission reduces from 30 per cent to 01 per cent in 14 weeks of gestation period once ART is commenced However NACO officials admit that with lack of treatment facilities several cases of the virus transmitting to the newborn are seen “In order to reduce these cases we will have to systematically snap the chain” Acharya added Additionally two Octroi nakas—at Dahisar and Mankhurd—along with Yellow Gate in South Mumbai have also been tapped for setting up permanent AIDS camps Drivers truck loaders cleaners and helpers will be asked to undergo the test to register new infected cases “We are trying a different approach this time Earlier mobile vans would go around testing and counseling people Now with permanent camps we can regularly do follow up with patients” said an MDACS worker tabassumbarnagarwala@expressindiacom For all the latest Mumbai News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Sonup Sahadevan |

with strength For me my country comes first and nothing else matters to me but my country I have always felt that the best way to express your patriotism is by spreading love and that is all I have ever tried to do through my work and through my cinema When I shot my film Ae Dil Hai Mushkil in September to December last year the climate was completely different The circumstances were completely different There were efforts made by our government for peaceful relationship with our neighbouring country and I respected those endeavours and efforts then and I respect the sentiments today I understand the sentiment because I feel the same Going forward I would like to say that of course I will not engage with talent from the neighbouring country given the circumstance But with that same energy I beseech you to know one thing That over 300 Indian people in my crew have put their blood sweat and tears into my film ADHM and I don’t think it is fair to them to face any kind of turbulence

Published: September 14 2010 4:55 am Related News The macabre story that unfolded in Kerala over the last few weeks is a harbinger of how complicated and threatening currents of religious politics are likely to remain Some fanaticsallegedly associated with the Popular Front of India (PFI)chopped off the hand of Prof TJ Joseph of Newman College for setting an exam question that was seen as containing a controversial reference to Prophet Mohammad The college then terminated the services of the professor Mahatma Gandhi Universitythe affiliating institutionhas correctly served a notice to the college questioning the professors dismissalbut the Archdiocese has supported action against the professor It is always difficult to gauge the significance of any incident in the context of wider politics But this story encapsulates many challenges of religious politics in our time Firstit provides more evidenceif any was neededthat a prolonged exposure of a state to left of centre and so-called progressive politics does not necessarily diminish religious sensibilities or fundamentalist sensitivities; it merely redirects and sometimes enhances them This is for two reasons Left politics and progressive politics in India have often been premised upon politically managing community identities rather than transcending them This has often required reinforcing a sense of identity amongst communitieswhich in turn has required often deferring to their sentimentseven when these go against the grain of constitutional values Just think of the CPMs handling of Taslima Nasreen in West Bengalanother state where communal attitudes are slowly simmering under the facade of communist rule While reinforcing communal identitiesprogressive discourse does not address a challenge Since the object of religious reflectionnamely some form of transcendencehas been delegitimisedreligion can no longer be understood in any way other than a form of ethnic identity It has become a will to difference Believers now measure the strength of their belief by protecting communitynot be seeking God or Truth This is a crisis afflicting all organised religions Fanaticism is a species of communal blasphemy It assumes that it is our job to protect our godssince the gods can no longer protect usor themselves Secondcompetitive offence-mongering has been the currency of religious assertion for some time now This politics is now truly global; every organised religious community is policing the boundaries of offensive speech or representation with a vengeance This politics is also very competitive; patterns in one religion are seen as a license for other religions to mobilise Unfortunatelythe response of liberal states has been exactly backwards While giving gratuitous offence to any religion usually reveals the small-mindedness of those who engage in itthere is no way that in a modern societyreligion can be protected against offensive speech But by promising to exorcise speech offensive to religion through various laws and political interventionsall we have done is simply given more groups incitement to mobilise We have also legitimised the thought that community sentiment is a valid argument for trampling individual rights The problem is that we have legitimised too much the idea that speech offensive to religion should be an actionable offenceso that those wanting to police offences against religion feel empowered No wonder the Archdiocese in Kerala (perhaps out of fear) is at one with the fanatics in saying that an actionable offence was committed in this case In a university setting you want the learning environment to not be intimidating to any student simply on account of their religion Any university will have to ensure that But it also has to get across the message that you cannot be shielded from representations that try your patience Thirdwe now genuinely have a problem of managing what might be called the politics of dissociation After
