Imagine We Are Family branded tissue rolls? We Are Family will transcend beyond Stepmom It is very different After all it is an Indian productlargely for the Indian diaspora The premise of the film is Stepmom but it is smartly Indianized with Indian values and at the same time it is very contemporary I quite believe that We Are Family will transcend beyond stepmom and carve its own identity I don’t know how much of Karan’s inputs were there in scripting the film I really would not know that as I got a readymade bound script to read HonestlyI really don’t know what went into weaving it I’m sure Siddharth will be able to give you better inputs on this one Karan was obviously involved in the capacity of a producer but he has a strong team in place now so he did not even need to frequent the sets I play a motherand that is the only common thread in MNIK and WAF WellI can’t even remotely compare both the films and my characters They are absolutely different story linesdifferent situations and individuals; of course the only common thread is that the woman in My Name Is Khan had a kid and in We Are Family has kids I am open to new scripts and new directors I have always been open to new talentbut of course I need the right script in hand and somewhere down the linethere has to be one function in the unit which would be experienced to pad up the newcomer or else it is difficult to get the right product A certain amount of strength is required in the form of experience for good workwhich should reflect somewhere in the project I have worked with so many new directors in my career So the fact remains that I am

Updated: September 16 2015 4:34 am Diabetic women are at 34 percent higher risk of heart attack and other related complications than diabetic men as they age researchers have warned Top News Diabetic women are at 34 percent higher risk of heart attack and other related complications than diabetic men as they age researchers have warned “With respect to acute heart attack (acute myocardial infarction or AMI) diabetic women are more disadvantaged compared to diabetic men with a gender driven “risk window” for women which mostly opens around menopausal age (45 years onwards)” explained lead researcher Dr Giuseppe Seghieri from Regional Health Agency in Florence Italy “Regarding ischemic stroke (IS) and congestive heart failure (CHF) it opens later in the postmenopausal age (55 years and over) and to a lesser extent All this should focus attention on a timely gender oriented prevention of cardiovascular events in people with diabetes” the authors noted For the study the authors did a retrospective follow-up study along a period of eight years (from 2005 to 2012) of a cohort of diabetic patients living in Tuscany a region of central Italy They pooled data from all Tuscan hospitals over the period 2005 to 2012 and a dataset containing the registry of all known diabetic patients from Tuscany The effect of diabetes was separately measured in men and in women across this entire eight year period After adjusting for several factors the hazard ratio was significantly higher in women than in men hospitalised for acute heart attack – 263 times increased risk for women compared to 196 times for men – giving a relative increased risk of 34 percent in women However the increased risk was overall similar between genders for those hospitalised for ischemic stroke (IS) and congestive heart failure (CHF) The paper published in the journal Diabetologia was presented at this year’s annual meeting of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes in Stockholm

given to Tarun Kumar’s son when he was three-months-old resulted in non-stop bleeding for a few hours The infant was referred to the capital’s Sir Ganga Ram Hospital where the condition was identified as hemophilia a blood clotting disorder Similar was the story of Karan 21 who used to regularly bleed from his mouth as an infant and had blue patches on his body The bleeding would recur every two hours His father Chandan took him to PGI-Chandigarh and later to a hospital in Mumbai where he was declared to be haemophilic But despite the extremely serious nature of the condition Tarun Kumar’s son and Karan are leading near normal lives today Tarun Kumar’s son is now 21-years-old and is doing his graduation while Karan is studying in one of India’s best technical institutes So how are they coping with haemophilia The key to leading a better life with hemophilia is early detection and condition management and the responsibility for that lies with the parents There is no cure for haemophilia only management say doctors “Parents should immediately highlight trivial injuries leading to profuse bleeding big blue patches on the body small wounds taking a very long time to heal and swelling in joints These are all symptoms of haemophilia” VP Choudhry haematologist at Gurggaon’s Paras Hospital told IANS Unexplained nasal bleeding and blood in the urine or the stools are also indicators Hemophilia is acquired at birth by children with a family history of the condition However it has also been observed that the disorder can be found in children without any family history as well The protein needed for normal blood clotting is absent in hemophilia so even a small injury can develop into a life-threatening condition Choudhry said that the incidence of hemophilia in India is 1:10000 and there are estimated to be 120000 cases “Since hemophilia is discovered mostly in toddlers parents should know about it and stay alert for any signs Diagnosis and timely beginning of treatment with some caution can allow the child normal unhindered growth” said Satish Koul internal medicine specialist at Gurgaon’s Columbia Asia Hospital told IANS Hemophilia is a genetic disorder It is mostly found in boys and very rarely in girls said Choudhry who worked for 35 years in the haemotology department of AIIMS The disorder can be managed by infusion of clotting factor using medicines to promote clots and healing avoiding bleeding exercising regularly avoiding contact sports maintaining good dental hygiene and following safe practices Medical management of the condition includes infusing blood clotting factor concentrates into the body to prevent bleeding This is called prophylactic therapy and is administered on the basis of the patient’s weight It also entails giving injections to the patient whenever they bleed also called on demand prophylactic therapy The efficacy of the medicine contained in vials is measured in units “A 20 kg baby requires 250 units of prophylactic therapy thrice a week and 3000 units a month It is an expensive treatment and costs more than Rs 30000 ($482) per month for a 20 kg child” Choudhry said A 15-year-old patient weighing around 50 kg needs 1500 units of prophylactic therapy per episode and in a month needs three to four episodes costing around Rs 80000 to Rs 90000 “It is a very expensive treatment and my son now takes it only on an SOS basis” said Tarun Kumar who has started a comprehensive hemophilia care centre which requires a haematologist orthopaedist and a physiotherapist at Sunflag Hospital in Faridabad in association with Pahuja Centre for Blood Disorders “In internal bleeding like brain hemorrhage inside the stomach and inside the hip the expenses will be unimaginable and run into lakhs of rupees” Tarun Kumar added Internal bleeding in the joints of knees or elbows can result in pain leading to the advanced onset of arthritis “We have sensitized the Haryana government and it is giving the (anti-hemophilia factors) injections for free at six civil hospitals since a year” Tarun Kumar said The six hospitals are located at Gurgaon Faridabad Rohtak Yamunanagar Hisar and Ambala “We appeal to the government that there should be no shortage of the injections” Tarun Kumar said “Parents who are educated rich and who have the option of getting reimbursed are going for prophylactic therapy And their children are leading normal lives” added Choudhry He said prophylactic therapy is helping patients lead normal life in developed countries as they are rich and can afford it The other pillar of successful hemophilia management is physical exercise “Regular exercise is very important for these kids as it builds muscular strength which prevents them from frequent injuries so regular exercise should always be encouraged” Gaurav Kharya consultant at BLK Super Speciality Hospital told IANS “These kids should refrain from sports where they have the potential to injure themselves Activities like brisk walking jogging running and swimming are very good for these kids” he added Tarun Kumar said swimming is the best exercise as the chance of getting injured is very low since the individual will be swimming in the smooth medium of water adding that cycling and physiotherapy are also highly recommended For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Ranjit Lal | Published: December 11 2016 12:02 am Should the leopard be released into the Kamala Nehru Ridge in Delhi We will have solved the monkey menace problem in one fell swoop in an eco-sensitive way Top News It felt wonderful when the news first broke I could now casually tell people “Ah yes I live in Delhi and not 20 minutes away from an area where a wild leopard is hunting wild nilgai and possibly wild boar too” What is even more astonishing is that if anyone had said that one day a leopard would be spotted in this area some 14 years ago — when the Yamuna Biodiversity Park project got off the ground — you would immediately have helped that poor soul into a straitjacket and sent him or her packing to the nearest psychiatric emergency unit So yes a major miracle has been wrought here because they turned what was only good as a tank-testing ground into a haven where even leopards feel at (and try to make a) home At the time of writing though it seems as though the leopard is in trouble The powers that be want it out of there They fear it might get after the local “pamerians” dogs and goats and after that who knows women and children One thing is certain If that animal is spotted by the aam junta all hell will break loose There have been a sickeningly high number of cases of leopards being lynched by mobs and this poor beast is going to be no exception For all our sanctimonious hectoring to the world about ahimsa being a “tolerant” society and loving animals for the last 5000 years our behaviour and general attitude towards them is anything but And any animal that is chased stoned and cornered whether it is a rat or a rhino will fight to the death simply because it has no option In this case it’s rather like first inviting someone to be a chief guest at a function and when that person graciously accepts and arrives — set the bouncers on him or her I must hasten to add here that in this case those who issued the invitation were absolutely not the ones who have set the bouncers on the VIP guest Ah you may say it’s all very well to take the side of the leopard — you live 20 minutes away from it and are not likely to ever encounter it What about those who are its next-door neighbours who must contend with its threat and presence every day; whose innocent children must be getting nightmares thinking about it and so not wanting to go to school Well we have to contend with all kinds of neighbours as well as the overweening presence (and lectures) of the government and manic drivers et al every hour of every day Don’t we get nightmares about them too — and survive The leopard is a reclusive animal and doesn’t exactly like the limelight so it’s not very likely to come knocking on someone’s door asking if it could borrow a cup of sugar (It might borrow Sweety though if Sweety yaps at it too much) As long as it gets enough wild prey and is left undisturbed it’ll stay where it can find that Besides there are so many people living in the hills and mountains (and hill stations) who have leopards as their immediate neighbours and none of them gets eaten A little wildlife haven has been created at the Yamuna Biodiversity Park which was the intention of the whole project — to recreate the natural environments found along the Yamuna basin With the arrival of a predator sitting on top of the food chain well the job is done — that really was the final “deliverable” of the project The leopard (and its family if it is able to have one) will keep the population of nilgai wild boar stray dogs and hares in check which otherwise will breed as rampantly as us and become as destructive Perhaps the presence of the leopard can be used to improve the security of the area as a whole Boards with skull-and-crossbones signs can be put up warning: “Beware leopard on the prowl Keep fingers on lips at all times do not litter and do not wander about unescorted: you may be eaten” And to ensure that people listen and behave conceal a few speakers in the high grass which play a deep-throated growl from time to time This may even summon the real animal and no further warning will need to be given ever If this poor animal is caught to be relocated where could it be released Well umm… I have an idea How about the Kamala Nehru Ridge in north Delhi (Only five minutes away from where I live and the CM will be living in its “backside” as Delhizens like to put it) There’s a very simple reason I’ve chosen this place Here too there’s plenty of natural prey But there are no nilgai or sambhar or chital or wild boar on the northern Ridge you might argue No of course not But there is that other leopard favourite and delicacy and as much of it as any leopard can wish for — monkeys Hundreds of them all sizes and weights Everywhere A swipe here and a swipe there and they’ll be tumbling down from the trees like confetti And we’ll have solved the monkey menace problem in one fell swoop in an eco-sensitive way As for the

The nudibranch Cratena peregrina (pictured) a type of sea slug often attacks prey that have just eaten thus getting an extra boost of nutrition from the prey’s undigested meal a new analysis reveals Scientists have dubbed this previously unreported style of gaining sustenance “kleptopredation” (a term including the Greek word for thief) In shallow waters of the Mediterranean and along the Atlantic coast of western Africa C peregrina lives on and near corallike colonies of polyps called hydroids The nudibranch besides using the hydroids for habitat regularly consume its home colony’s polyps But in the lab the marine biologists noticed an odd behavior: When given the chance to consume either a polyp that had just swallowed prey or an empty polyp the nudibranch strongly preferred polyps that had just eaten the researchers report today in Biology Letters It’s not yet clear how the nudibranch identified polyps that contained an undigested meal; they could have been attracted to a chemical signal released by the polyp when or after it captured prey the researchers suggest or they might have been drawn to vibrations in the water triggered by struggling prey inside the polyp In any case this odd dietary habit may prove beneficial for both C peregrina and the colony of hydroids it preys on: The nudibranch gets extra nutrition and as a result it can make ends meet by consuming fewer polyps—thus reducing the overall damage to its hydroid home Thankfully Unfortunately As far as the local British officials were concerned the tenant of Babu Lomraj Singh And since it’s such an
