When I have started writing this editorial, I am in anguish of the Uttar Pradesh incident. Every child is important for country.The angst of parents could not sum up in word like the pain of nation as well in words. We all know the nation has lost would – be engineers, doctors, entrepreneurs, scientist, bureaucrats and politician etc. every year either it’s a mistake of administration or it’s a callousness of our creaky system.

First question came to mind that why that much of country’s future was in hospital at a time and fighting for life and death. Due to Acute Encephalitis Syndrome. What is this? Are we not capable enough to root out it?

We all are politicizing the entire issue blaming Gas agencies, Government, Administration, and politician. No one is talking measures to prevent our future from premature death. AES and JEV first reported in 1955 in Vellore (Tamilnadu) and 1973 at Bankura Distt. In West Bengal. Thereafter, sporadic cases of AES and outbreaks have been the leading cause of premature deaths due to the diseases in India. The Government and administration were not taking it seriously at that time. Between 2000 and 2010, a dramatic change was observed in the AES scenario, which saw the rise in non-JE outbreaks mostly caused by viruses such as Chandipura virus (CHPV), Nipah virus (NiV), and other enter viruses Endemic regions of various viruses reported to cause AES in India. JEV has its endemic zones running along the Gangetic plane including states of UP (east), Bihar, West Bengal and Assam, and parts of Tamil Nadu. CHPV that hit the states of Maharashtra … JE was the major cause of these deaths, albeit virologists identified another causal agent in the form of ‘toxin-mediated illnesses. Investigators hypothesized the causal agent as a toxin prevalent in the litchi fruit (Indian Express, 14/10/ 2014). Safe and effective vaccines are available to prevent AE/JE. WHO recommends that AE/JE vaccination be integrated into national immunization schedules in all areas where JE disease is recognized as a public health issue?


Second Most important issue is 35A and 370 in that particular subject, the political party are crying on one side leaving none to chances.When India for Kashmir, why not the Kashmiris for India. Selecting this fist mounds every Indian want to segregate sections from J&K. We need a strong political will to restrain this feeling and to take hard decisions. Otherwise it will be cancerous in the beautiful face of India.

This issue dedicated to the parents who lost his child .
