Lesson from Kerala floods : Human activities, climate change has disastrous effects on environment

  Lesson from Kerala floods : Human activities, climate change has disastrous effects on environment   Sagaya Fernando Mumbai: 19 October 2021   Overexploitation of natural resources and haphazard development by humans has led to climate change, resulting in long-lasting consequences on the environment. This is increasing health hazards and natural disasters, and more, day by day. The torrential flooding being witnessed recently in the state of Kerala in India is a prime example of this, say many experts.   This is not the first time that Kerala, a state of 34 million people, has been devastated by floods. It saw the worst floods in a century in 2018 when severe rains caused flash floods and landslides, killing nearly 500 people and leaving a million homeless. The following year, more than 125 people were killed in flash floods and landslides across the state. More than 50 were killed in August last year after landslides struck the hilly Munnar region.   The latest spell of torrential

7-month-old toddler swallows LED bulb, Mumbai doctors remove it in 2 minutes

Babies often enjoy the entertaining lights and sounds of electronic toys. Nevertheless, the harmless-looking toys could cause more harm than one could imagine if parents don’t pay special attention to make sure they stay safe for play. This is what happened to a 7-month-old child from Chiplun in the state of Maharashtra in India when she accidentally swallowed a LED bulb while playing with a toy mobile phone. Fortunately for her, doctors at Bai Jerbai Wadia Hospital for Children in Mumbai examined the toddler and removed the bulb within minutes through bronchoscopy.

“The child named Ariba from Chiplun, which is around 260 km south of Mumbai, swallowed a LED bulb while playing with a toy mobile. The parents presumed that she swallowed a thread or a mobile pin. This lead to a persistent cough and fever, so her parents took her to local physicians but her condition remained unchanged. An X-Ray then revealed foreign body in the right bronchus (lung). After a week they brought their child to our hospital for treatment,” said Dr. Minnie Bodhanwala, CEO Wadia Hospital.

 “Antibiotics were given and primarily when a bronchoscopy was done the complete bronchus was full of granulation tissue that was on account of the prolonged lodging of this foreign body. An intravenous course of antibiotics and steroids were given for 2 days to clear the infection and granulations of the airway which blocked the foreign body. Following this bronchoscopy was repeated and within 2 minutes this foreign body (only a wire strand was seen from the scope) was removed using forceps. To our surprise this happened to be a 2 cm LED bulb, which has not been seen after even thousands of scopies done here,” stated Dr. Divya Prabhat, Head of ENT department at Bai Jerbai Wadia Hospital, who conducted the procedure.

The toddler has been discharged and is doing fine now, he added.

Ariba’s father Khan says, “We thank Wadia Hospital team as they saved my daughter’s life. We were completely unaware of the fact that our child swallowed LED bulb, but the doctors here diagnosed it accurately and immediately took corrective measures.”

  2. A few weeks ago, someone noticed how attached we are to our rats, wondering how we could go through the heartbreak of loving animals with such a short lifespan. I didn’t know how to answer as we haven’t yet gone through the experience.

  3. Without knowing the backstory of Clapton's son's death inspiring such a beautiful lyric of loss, one would underestimate the depth of grief packed into the poetry. As romantic lyric-- which it is entirely possible to be interpreted-- it is quite ordinary, indeed, bordering on the sentimental, but as a grieving father's vision of a dead child it is exquisitely, and most achingly sublime. And this is also a grown man's psychological response to loss that is irreparable.
