स्वास्थ्य सेवा की सुध लेने का समय

Capture h

सरकार को चाहिए कि खुद स्वास्थ्य केंद्रों के संचालन की बजाय वह स्वास्थ्य बीमा का दायरा विस्तृत करे। मजबूत कानून तथा मापदंडों के चलते यदि स्वास्थ्य बीमा का व्यापक विस्तार हो, तो जनता सरकारी या निजी क्षेत्र से चिकित्सा सुविधाएं प्राप्त करने में कहीं अधिक सक्षम हो सकेगी।

Today Delhi has become a living testimony to mass (teeming population), misery (in the name of development)and mockery (of planning)!

सपनों के देश में यह कैसा अंधेरा ?

पिछली दो शताब्दियों में अमेरिका ने सभी क्षेत्रों में अभूतपूर्व विकास किया है, पर अपने समाज में श्वेत-अश्वेत के बीच नस्ली भेदभाव की खाई पाटने में पूरी तरह कामयाब नहीं हो पाया है। आज जब वह खुद को विश्व नेता के रूप में स्थापित करना चाहता है, तब उसे अपने घर में फैली नस्ली असमानता मिटाने पर गंभीरता से ध्यान देना चाहिए। इन दिनों अमेरिका में ‘अफ्रीकन अमेरिकन हिस्ट्री मंथ’ मनाया जा रहा है।19 फरवरी, 2015 के नवभारत टाइम्स समाचारपत्र में प्रकाशित मेरा लेख – सपनों के देश में यह कैसा अंधेरा:

Come, Let’s recycle!

Recycling reduces pollution, saves energy and resources. It is an important tool in the waste management. In USA, as much as 34 % municipal solid waste (MSD) is recycled. In India, recycling happens, but in an unstructured manner, viz. rag pickers, etc play important role in that. Here is my article on “Recycling and solid waste management” published today (Nov. 17,2014) in a Delhi-based daily The Political & Business Daily.
