Govt making no efforts to educate Adivasis on Forest Rights Act as promised...

Shraddha Behen from Ekta Parishad is traveling with Bhumi Adhikar Yatra in Dhar district in Madhya Pradesh. She says adivasis there have applied for land under forest rights act but they have not got lands yet. The village committees have got no idea on how to go about it as Govt has not done efforts to make them aware as promised. The yatra will also visit Alirajpur and Jhabua districts before coming to Bhopal on 8th for a public hearing. Shraddha Behen@9893318268

Medical notes: Water best first remedy for burns

Shraddha from Jan Swsthya Sahyog in Ganiari, Bilaspur in Chhattisgarh says that first aid does not require specialists, and can save a life. If someone has experienced a burn due to fire, electric shock, or hot oil, clean cold water should be used immediately, and then the area kept cool by applying it repeatedly. Boils help the skin heal faster because they retain liquid inside. If the area burnt is more than 20%, professional help in a hospital is a must. The sufferer should not be given water to drink in severe burn cases, as it can cause him to vomit blood. For more Shraddha can be reached at 09981367731
