celebration with the release of the alleged anti-national JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar from jail the story of academic debate and discussion within the walls of this South Delhi academic institution will recede into the inside pages of daily newspapers TV channels will also see the story drop off the list of prime time bulletins Mahishasur might be taken off the debating list from JNU campus too for the time being But misconceptions and half-baked discussions on what debates should take place or what issues should concern academia will be debated outside its walls by many whose understanding of academia is either weak or they believe their version of history/myths is the only truth No version other than the popular one need be celebrated and observed Alas they fail to realise that what they believe to be popular may not be popular among sects communities social groups or even people spread across India’s geographical spread Most of us who grew up when Doordarshan News was the only TV news available willremember that on the day of Vijaydashmi the final day of Dussehra celebrations a news item would show visuals of the burning of effigies of demon king Ravan and his two brothers with a message from the president vice-president and prime minister read out saying “Vijadashmi the festival that marks the Victory of Good over Evil was celebrated with tradition gaiety and fervor across the country…” Representational image AFP Little did I realise that this fact was not true for the entire country until many years later I learnt that in South India Ravan is not a demon that he was made out to be in North India Kamba Ramayan is the Ramayan that people follow in Tamil Nadu where Ravan is shown as a man of high moral fibre and a warrior king And the villain according to those whose who follow Kamba Ramayan is Ram because he questioned his wife’s chastity and disowned her Tulsidas Ramayan is not what many in South India follow Beliefs are not monochromatic images the way politicians portray them The diversity of beliefs myths ideas thoughts and stories that have evolved and taken a different spin over centuries in tiny tribal hamlets of Andhra Pradesh or Odisha or Jharkhand and Madhya Pradesh cannot be debunked as “blasphemous” In parts of Maharashtra Madhya Pradesh and Jharkhand Gond tribals worship Ravan as a Gond king killed by Aryan invaders There are a few Ravan temples across the country In Bisrakh village of Noida Uttar Prades; at Jodhpur and Kakinada in Andhra Pradesh are other such temples In the Darshanan Ravan temple in Kanpur he is a warrior king and the finest disciple of Lord Shiva In Baijnath Himachal Pradesh people take inspiration from stories of Ravan’s devotion to Shiva and there is no custom of burning of his effigy or that of his brothers In fact sweets are neither distributed nor do people light firecrackers in the belief that effigy-burning would invite the wrath of Lord Shiva Similarly Mahisasur’s story has a different narrative from the one that is followed in Kolkata and other parts of Bengal Anyone who has visited Mysore would recall taking pictures of Mahisasur on Chamundi Hills in KarnatakaThe colourful statue

Ranchi with a photograph of tribals worshipping a statue of Mahisasur Around 10000 members of Asur a Primitive Tribal Group worship him as their ancestor Their version of Durga’s “victory over evil” has a different narrative Academic debate and discussions in social sciences pull out stories of mythologies legends beliefs and rituals of every group big and small Most people in a world of instant soundbytes and instinctive posts on social media have little appreciation of academic discourse and rigour They seem to forget that the history of small groups and communities need to be read analysed and understood There is nothing called “my way or the highway” in higher academics People need to enrol or visit universities across the country to appreciate the importance and need for debate and discussion Marginalised sections of India who remain hidden from the prying cameras of TV channels have celebrated ideas and worshipped gods and goddesses who are different and may even be antithetical to beliefs of majority people These people are not non-Hindus or atheists Their forefathers lived on this land long long before many of our ancestors Their stories are not to be junked and treated with suspicion and fear as some seem to do today All these groups over a period of centuries became a part of the large Indian family Celebration of diversity requires respect for everyone and a desire to understand differences and not use voice modulation theatrics and drama to belittle voiceless and faceless minorities of the country Hinduism’s inclusiveness and acceptance of

witness an alarming spike in cases of drug-resistant tuberculosis in the next two decades According to the study published in the prestigious Lancet medical journal drug-resistant TB could make up one in ten cases of the disease in the country by 2040 A similar spike has been forecast for Philippines Russia and South Africa too Representational image AP "By 2040 a third of tuberculosis cases in Russia are predicted to be drug-resistant compared with one in ten in India and the Philippines and one in 20 in South Africa" the study said This compares to almost a quarter of cases (248 percent) in Russia 79 percent in India 6 percent in the Philippines and 25 percent in South Africa in 2000 the study said Tuberculosis is a bacterial disease that can be treated with a combination of antibiotic drugs However the "use and misuse" of antibiotics — such as using the wrong drug or not completing the full course of treatment — may result in bacteria developing drug resistance known as acquired drug resistance The study said the upturn is likely because of increased transmission of drug-resistant tuberculosis between people rather than by strains acquiring resistance to drugs While better access to treatment programmes will reduce rates of drug-resistant TB in the aforementioned countries they alone will not eradicate the problem as current efforts may not be enough to reverse the spike The study also called for research into additional control measures to prevent the spread of the drug-resistant disease These measures include early detection reducing the number of patients who do not complete treatment and providing tailored treatment depending on which drugs the strain is susceptible to "We cannot focus solely on curing people with TB or drug-resistant TB if we want to halt the epidemic Even if we prevent new drug-resistant infections there are enough current cases to keep the epidemic going Drug-resistant TB will continue to be an increasingly dangerous threat so long as resistant strains spread through the air from one person to another" said Aditya Sharma of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention He said there is a need to dramatically step up efforts to break the cycle of transmission while also maintaining efforts to rapidly find and treat all people with tuberculosis "We must strengthen infection control measures focus on households health centres and communities to prevent tuberculosis spreading from person to person and develop more effective diagnostic tests to rapidly and accurately detect drug resistance" he said Latest figures estimate that each year there are 104 million new cases of tuberculosis leading to 18 million deaths globally Nearly 40 percent of all drug-resistant TB cases occur in Russia India the Philippines and South Africa — accounting for more than 230000 cases in 2015 As a celebration of showbiz, She finished only second at the Chinese Olympic trials held before the Asian Championships.”
