Prevention of AIDS is our joint responsibility (Hindi)   
Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial

With a population of over one billion, and more than 4.5 million people infected with “HIV/AIDS”, the HIV epidemic in India will have a major impact on the overall spread of HIV in Asia, the Pacific, and around the world. India is second only to South Africa in terms of the overall number of people living with the disease. India has had a sharp increase in the estimated number of  "HIV" infections, from the first reported case in 1986 in Madras (a commercial sex worker), then escalating to several thousand in the early 1990s to around five million in 2003. National estimates have come under scrutiny and are generally considered to be underestimations of the true absolute number of persons living with HIV in India.

Focusing on the causes for the dwindling of rivers Ravi Aggarwal, Director, Toxics Link and IFCS 2008 awardee , says that rivers are a vital resource and their preservation is important for the future.

हमारे देश में जल के असीम संसाधन मौजूद हैं। हिमालय के विशाल ग्लेशियर, मैदानी भागों में कल-कल बहती नदियों तथा झीलों के साथ-साथ भूमिगत जलाशयों के रूप में जल का एक समृद्ध भण्डार है। लेकिन आज ये नदियाँ, भूमिगत जलाशय विभिन्न कारणों जैसे जलवायु परिवर्तन, नदी में बढ़ता प्रदुषण, विभिन्न जल विद्युत परियोजनाओं आदि के कारण समाप्त होने की कगार पर है।

कार्यक्रम में टॉक्सिक्स लिंक संस्था के निदेशक रवि अग्रवाल जी का साक्षात्कार भी प्रस्तुत है। उनका कहना है कि नदियाँ प्रकृति की देन हैं तथा इन्हें प्राकृतिक तरीके से ही बहने दें। इनकी जलधारा में परिवर्तन करके प्रकृति के साथ खिलवाड़ नहीं किया जाना चाहिए और न ही नदियों को प्रदूषित करना चाहिए। उन्होंने कहा कि इन दो कार्यों को अगर हम अपने जीवन में ढाल पाए, तो ये नदियों के आस्तित्व को बचाने की दिशा में उचित प्रयास होगा।

Respect human rights (Hindi)

The Indian government is failing to protect the rights of hundreds of thousands of children who toil as virtual slaves in the country.

The situation of “human rights” in India is a complex one, as a result of the country's large size and tremendous diversity. It is often held, particularly by Indian human rights groups and activists, that members of the Dalit or Untouchable caste have suffered and continue to suffer substantial discrimination. Although human rights problems do exist in India, the country is generally not regarded as a human rights concern, unlike other countries.

Sex ratio in India is getting more and more disproportionate over the years. Unfortunately the educated and the elite still seem to consider their male child a status symbol, and thereby partake in creating an imbalance in the male-female sex ratio. In most parts of India, sons are viewed as breadwinners who will look after their parents and carry on the family name, but daughters are viewed as financial liabilities for whom they will have to pay substantial dowries to get married off.

This radio programme discuss about anaemia, which is a deficiency of haemoglobin in human body. Dr. Haldar discusses the symptoms and cure for anaemia.


The programme also informs about other methods of increasing blood and iron in our body for instance, by including green vegetables in our diets or visiting health centers where frolic acid and iron tablets are distributed free of cost. It is just a deficiency.

This programme also reveals that people living in slums and mostly women who are pregnant are found to be more anaemic. Lack of blood in our body can sometimes even take lives.

Haemoglobin normally carries oxygen from the lungs to the tissues, and anaemia leads to lack of oxygen in organs. All human cells depend on oxygen for survival; and varying degrees of anemia can have a wide range of clinical consequences.

Stress is a part of day to day living (Hindi)   
Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial

Now a days there is more competition in every one’s day to day life. Everyone has a dream in their eye, to become more stronger and better than  the other. They do more labor &  do not have time for their personal life. This competition creates  different kind of tensions, & therefore people become victims of stress. Stress is the "wear and tear" our bodies experience as we adjust to our continually changing environment; it has physical and emotional effects on us and can create positive or negative feelings. As a positive influence, stress can help compel us to action; it can result in a new awareness and an exciting new perspective. As a negative influence, it can result in feelings of distrust, rejection, anger, and depression, which in turn can lead to health problems. 

Examinations are a time of anxiety and nervousness - exam stress (Hindi)   
Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial

Almost everyone feels nervous before an exam. Butterflies in the stomach and worrying thoughts - 'Will I be able to answer the questions?' 'Have I done enough revision?' - are indications of exam nerves that are probably familiar to all students. In fact, a certain amount of nervous tension probably helps us perform to the best of our ability, producing a rush of adrenaline that helps us to feel alert and focused. But too much anxiety can BLOCK thoughts, create a negative frame of mind, and lead to panic and potentially poor exam performance. The link between exam stress and binge eating among students is nothing new. During the crucial period prior to examinations, many students rely on caffeine, either from coffee or from cold drinks, to keep their energy levels up. They are most likely to fall on quick meals and junk food to meet their nutritional needs. Some even resort to caffeine pills or other stimulants. Either way, neglecting nutritional needs during stressful conditions has a negative impact on behaviour and learning capacity.
