TN moms to get cash for vaccines

Tamil Nadu has always become a front runner in new & innovative public welfare Ideas. Like the mid day meal in the 80's to the post-election offerings in the state promising BPL card holders many free-bees. Resuming the same spirit to serve the people the state govt has announced to give cash to the to be moms for a healthy nutritious health condition during delivery to strengthen the immune system.   




the times of india says...


The state government will soon pay mothers who get their newborns vaccinated as per the immunization schedule. This will help the health department track the health of mothers and their children in the below poverty line category and bring down maternal and infant deaths.  

The scheme is perhaps the first of its kind in the country and is intended to arrest the decline in immunisation. Health department officials have decided that under the revised Muthulakshmi Reddy Scheme every pregnant woman will be given a smart card with her medical details. The health department will transfer Rs 4,000 to her bank account after she registers with a government healthcare unit.
The money is to help her have nutritious food and avoid anaemia during pregnancy. If the woman delivers at a government hospital, the state will transfer another Rs 4,000. At present, the department gives Rs 6,000 in two equal installments.

Ek ghadi ki kahani...

यह चेन्नई मैं मेरी पहली शर्दी है ... हलाकि मैं पिछले साल भी यहीं था मगर मैं शायद इस जलवायु मैं ठीक से अपने आप को ढाल नहीं पाया था. आज कल यहाँ सुबह की नींद बड़ी मजेदार लगती है और बिस्तर छोड़ने को मन नहीं करता.पर क्या करें सुबह सुबह ऑफिस भी तो जाना है ना तो उठाना पड़ता है.हाला की मेरे ऑफिस की कार्यकालिनी समय सुबह ९ बजे से लेके शाम के ६ बजे तक है मगर मैं क्या कहूँ मुझे अपनी आप पे शर्म अति है ये कहते हुए की मैं रोज़ १०- १०.३० से पहले ऑफिस नहीं पहंच पाता था.और क्यों की मैं खुद मानव संसाधन बिभाग मैं हूँ तो मुझे बड़ा अटपटा लगता था और शर्मिंदगी भी लगती थी. खैर एक दिन मेरे अन्दर का शेर जाग गया अचानक और मुझे बोला के बेटा अब उठ जा और कुछ जुगाड़ कर. तो मैंने पिछले रविवार को ही बाज़ार गया और एक अलार्म वाली घडी लेके आया.वैसे उसकी कुछ आबस्यक्ता  नहीं थी क्यों के मेरे घर के पास वाली चर्च से हर एक घंटे मैं अलार्म बजता रहता है. मगर क्या करें कुछ करना जो था, तो मैने एक बजने वाली घडी ले आया और उसे सबसे अधिक आवाज में चालू करके सो गया.  सुबह ६ बजे जैसे ही वो बजा मैं उठ खड़ा हुआ. सुबह की शांत बातावरण मैं मु…

Odia , Odisha & its people.

For your knowledge i should tell you that unlike English the letters in oriya are much complicated and need a better effort to write a good hand-writing. But let me tell you it was really tough to get something on paper,forget about the handwriting.But one thing is for sure my fingers remembered the letters so correctly that i was surprised at times when i wrote conjoint letters. It took me 20-30 minutes to write a full page letter expressing my thought at that time. I managed to get an average handwriting & one can only manage to read & understand what I wrote.

I remember my School Days when I used to speak , read & write in Odia only and read English as a subject in the class. When somebody spoke good English then, people used to admire him with great respect &considered English as a better lang…
