#Thread Family Doctors (Primary Care) Vs Speciality Care in #India
A few weeks ago, in response to a different thread ( ) there was a comment from @spinesurgeon that we need family physicians. (1/31)
Another comment in that thread by @VaradhKrish referred to the issue of patients going directly to specialists, bypassing primary care doctors. (2/31)
The problem of patients going to specialists directly, rather than to primary care/family doctors first and then being referred by them to specialists is one that requires a more in-depth analysis. (3/31)

@ani7709 Nagpur - BJP

Although there may not be lead as much as last time for BJP, BJP is in comfortable position to win this seat.

Nana Patole uplifted spirit of INC cadre as he fought against heavyweight minister Gadkari. Gadkari couldn't move out of Nagpur for a while in this phase.
@ani7709 Bhandara-Gondiya - BJP

A neck to neck contest. BJP put a good fight in by poll held previously. Due to Nana Patole moved to Nagpur to contest, BJP somewhat got a relief to make this seat workout.
Both BJP & NCP put fresh candidates. It is going to be a cadre vs cadre fight.
@ani7709 Gadchiroli-Chimur - BJP
No any other CM has visited Gadchiroli as much as Devendra Fadnavis did. Development work has put edge to BJP in this seat.

Putting post poll prediction done by me & @ani7709 about #Maharashtra.
We have taken several opinions, understood situation from each loksabha seat & findings of some analysts.

Also I will be putting personal prediction of other states in same thread.
@ani7709 Overall scenario of #Maharashtra:
BJP looked very strong on every seat they fought.

Congress still looked in bad shape except Vidharbha, Marathwada

Shivsena will lose some seats especially to NCP.

NCP looking much stronger than 2014, putting full force & resources this time.
@ani7709 ShivSena faced anti incumbency in Marathwada, Vidharbha region. Several seats are toss ups & good chance for NCP especially to gain those.

I am deeply saddened by the way tigress Avni has been brutally murdered in #Yavatmal, #Maharashtra. #Justice4TigressAvni
theprint.in/governance/tri…
It is nothing but a straight case of crime. Despite several requests from many stakeholders, Sh @SMungantiwar, Minister for Forests, #Maharashtra, gave orders for the killing. #Justice4TigressAvni
He has been doing this regularly and this is the third tiger being murdered besides several leopards and wild boars. #Justice4TigressAvni

Today marked five years since #NarendraDabholkar was assassinated while on his morning walk in Pune (thread)

That act robbed Maharashtra and the rest of the country of one of the finest rationalist minds and dogged anti-superstition activists.

#NarendraDabholkar was 67 yrs old
For 18 long years, #NarendraDabholkar and his compatriots had campaigned for an anti-superstition anti-black magic law.
They were convinced that poorest/weakest people were being exploited under the rubric of religious practices though these had little or no religious sanction
On Aug 26, 2013, less than a week after #NarendraDabholkar was shot dead, the Maharashtra govt promulgated an ordinance. And formalised the law in December that year.

Since then, the law has seen amendments which diluted it, the list of banned activities has been reducing.

The demand for #MarathaReservation dates back to the 1980s. #MarathaUnFound
The 1st major agitations were initiated in 97 by organisations like #MarathaMahasangh & the #MarathaSevaSangh. According to the Maratha Seva Sangh, the #Marathas are essentially #Kunbis, a nomenclature given to agrarian communities that include Gujarat’s #Patidars #MarathaUnFound
Mandal Commission report of 1990, the National Commission for Backward Classes report of 2000 & the 2008 State Backward Classes Commission report pointed out that the #Maratha can't be considered as educationally or socially backward #MarathaUnFound

After getting a good rap on the knuckles by editors for being a lazy lurker on social media, here's course correction. I am now doing a thread of all my reportage in 2018. (@sree and @prempanicker had encouraged me to do this many years ago 🙈) Please read and share.
While urbanisation is a global trend, villagers around #Ahmedabad don't want to live in cities. Since 2012, #Gujarat government has encouraged 12 cities to swallow up some 800 villages. And now, most of them are resisting. A take on the 'Gujarat Model'.

The two main problems for the new state of #Telangana are exemplified in
Vemulaghat, a village off #Hyderabad. I went there to understand their conflict over land and #water for irrigation. CC: @Landesa_Global @LandConflicts thewire.in/politics/despi…

#Thread : #diabetes & rice

Study conducted by the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) and the University of Queensland says, #Diabetic patients may consume Indian varieties of rice like Swarna, Mahsuri as they have low GI.

#DiabetesMonth
#SwasthaBharat
Rice variety like brown rice could be consumed by #Diabetic patients as well. This is customary in many parts of southern India.

#DiabetesMonth
#SwasthaBharat
Traditionally Indians consume aged rice; which has low GI as compared to the new one. If you consuming new rice grain; just roast it a bit before cooking. It makes it easy to digest says #Ayurveda. The process also helps reducing the GI.
