EDITORS NOTE
My Dear Readers,
With this issue of HAMARA PRAYAS, we completed four years of
circulation. Very few things make me personally proud but this one
certainly does.
Most of our readers have celebrated us and some have given
certain suggestions. To sustain readership in a print medium while
the next generation preferred the digital medium threw several
challenges. Most of the entrepreneurs in this Banking Industry and
Cooperative Sector believe that magazine in print, as an exclusive
business, is more a sustainable proposition.
In spite of many vicissitudes, certain values were never compromised; HAMARA PRAYASs
commitment to inspire breakthroughs, pure growth oriented non-journalistic contents, the
highest quality standards in everything, growing readership, the tabloids culture of holistic
abundance, striving for enriching banking knowledge among employees, personality
development and human relations, scienti ic innovations, general awareness, fun corners
for easing the busy minds and still more now ever and always.
I thank the internal editorial team for being the connecting thread and causing the birth of
HAMARA PRAYAS month after month for the last 50 months.
This instils hope and optimism about the future to see what is right and good win. The
tabloid will continue to carry all of you in this path of breakthroughs..
Desiring further abundance,
Yours truly,
RANJANA SHARMA

FROM THE CHAIRMANS DESK


MORALITY
Our experiences
parent us. All of us
are bound by our
instincts, which
is to avoid pain
and embrace
pleasure. A man is
not dierent from
an animal in this
aspect. In fact, at the instinctive level, man is
an animal. However, man is a thinking
animal and a thinking animal is very
dangerous. So the wise men who walked
this planet before you and me, to ensure that
the man directs his thinking towards
creative endeavours and not towards
destruction, built a constitution of right and
wrong and expected man to abide by it,
which we call morality.
Cave man could make your treasure his by
physically overpowering you, just as animal
do, but in an evolved world it is considered
morally wrong. The man from the Stone Age
could overpower you, and your valuables
would become his treasure; in a civilised
world it is considered morally wrong.
However, the fact remains, even if man is
morally abiding he has not truly outgrown
his instincts. He is still drawn by the
pleasure of other peoples wealth and is still
a victim to the pleasure of temptation of
another mans property.
A part of every man is still an animal. There
is a constant war between the animal within
him and the man in him a war between
instincts and conscience. It is as simple as
this. Mans conscience tells him that exercise

is good for his well-being and encourages


him to take it up. Yet, the instinctive animal
within him tells him that exercising is
painful and asks him to avoid it. So, every
morning, there is war between his
conscience and his instincts. The irony is
that his instincts have been groomed by his
own experiences, whereas his conscience
has only been borrowed and inherited from
others. Any day, experiential knowledge
is more potent and hence more often
than not, the animal within triumphs
over the man. This split between instincts
(pain and pleasure) and his conscience
(right and wrong) is referred to as sin.
It is called a sin because a man with a split
can never be at peace with himself, and
no one can be at peace with a man who is
not at peace with himself. Evading tax may
be pleasure, but it is morally wrong. That is
why tax evasion robs you of your peace of
mind.
When your life is governed by pleasurable
rights and painful wrongs, when your
instincts are trained to be in harmony with
your conscience and your conscience is
evolved to guide your instincts, when your
life is one beyond splits, then you are living a
life of absolute morality.
With Foundation Day Greetings,
PURSHOTAMDAS MANDHANA

FROM THE PEN OF SENIOR VICE CHAIRMAN


CONTENTMENT

"AVo {V>mm gd
aZonWmZ'
Sage Patanjali (2-37)
To one established in
non-stealing, all wealth
comes.
If we want to become the
worlds richest people,
this is a very simple way.
There is no need to get
into stock market or even
to do a war. Just practise non-stealing. All of us are
thieves. Knowingly or unknowingly, we steal things
from nature. With every minute, with each breath, we
pick natures pocket. Whose air do we breathe? It is
natures. But that does not mean we should stop
breathing and die. Instead, we should receive each
breath with reverence and use it to serve others; then
we are not stealing. If we accept it and dont give
anything in return, we are thieves. We steal because of
greed. We want to do little and get a lot. Many people go
to the of ice and just sit around, use phone to make their
own appointments all day, and accept their pay at the
end of the month. Are not they stealing that money? Do
we not also steal other peoples ideas?
If we are completely free from stealing and greed,
contented with what we have, and if we keep serene
minds, all wealth comes to us. If we do not run after it,
before long, it runs after us. If nature knows we are not
greedy, she gains con idence in us, knowing we will
never hold her for ourselves. But, normally, when we
get something, we tend to lock it away and put the keys
in a safe place. We tend to imprison our possessions,
whether money, property or even people. The moment
we try to imprison money, it feels, what is this? I want
free movement. They have made me round so I could
roll. But here I am locked up. Oh, I have come to the
wrong person. The moment I get the chance, I will roll
away. Some stingy people never open their vaults. The
money just sits inside and prays, please somebody
release me. Inevitably the prayer is heard by a robber
who comes to its rescue.
Another way of stealing things is by not letting others
use them. Suppose we own a hundred acres of land,
most of which we dont use. If there are people who
want to buy ten acres and we dont let them, we are
stealing its usage. If someone has ifty garments in his
closet and his neighbour doesnt have even one, the irst

person is stealing the seconds usage. Because certain


people have the buying power to make a lot of
purchases, they raise prices for poor people who dont
have such money. If everyone merely bought for ones
own necessity, goods would be left over in stores and
prices would come down. The whole worlds economy
is based on this.
The land belongs to everybody. What is grown in
advanced countries can be irst given to their citizens
with the surplus divided among everyone else. If we
know how to care and share, no poverty or hunger
need exist anywhere. Is it more necessary to go on
to the moon than to take care of our neighbours? We
cannot negate scienti ic inventions and developments.
We can all ride to the moon, but only after everyone has
been well-fed, clothed and educated. A proverb says,
the stomach is crying for a piece of bread; the hair is
crying for a bunch of lowers. Which is more
important? The hair can live without a garland, but the
stomach cannot go without a loaf of bread. So, let us
satisfy the stomachs irst; and then, if we have money
left over, we can get a number of garlands.
With all our modern inventions, we are really living in a
horrible state. Our ancestors on horseback and carts
seemed much happier. They might have eaten crude
food, they might have gone without radios, television,
electronics and supersonic transport, but mentally
they were happier and healthier. It is high time to get rid
of this anxiety. How long can we live under such great
tension? By all this we can see richness has nothing to
do with monetary wealth. The richest person is the one
with a cool mind, free of tension and anxiety. Changing
all these world situations is not in our hands. But what
is in our hands is the ability to ind joy and peace right
here and now. We can be happy in situations of tension.
If we have decided to be happy, nobody can make us
unhappy. Nor should we worry about the past. It has
already gone. To be happy this minute is in our
hands.
We are not going to change the whole world, but we can
change ourselves and feel free as bird. We can be serene
even in the midst of calamities and by our serenity,
make other more tranquil. Serenity is contagious. If
we smile at someone, he will smile back. And a
smile costs nothing. But a carefree life is possible only
with a well-controlled mind, one that is free of anxiety,
one without personal desires or possessions.
With Independence Day Greetings,
RAMESH KUMAR BUNG

MD & CEO SPEAKS


UNCONDITIONAL RESPONSIBILITY
My Dear Colleagues,
In spite of the canvass, despite the paints and irrespective
of the brushes used, the quality of a painting is the
responsibility of the painter. Similarly, the quality of a
sculpture is the responsibility of the sculptor. And the
quality of your career is YOUR responsibility. No blaming
is allowed.
One of the guiding principles of doing our duty that can make all the
dierence: I will assume unconditional responsibility.
I will assume: Dont wait for others to oer you responsibilities. Take the
initiative. Volunteer. Step forward. Put your hand up. Announce your
presence.
I will assume unconditional: What is not unconditional never gets done. Burn
the bridges. Conditions are required only to pass on the blame, in case of a
failure. Dont ever process failure as an option. Where conditions succeed,
responsibilities fail. Where responsibilities succeed, conditions are
redundant. Be unconditional.
I will assume unconditional responsibility: Stop viewing responsibilities as a
burden and start seeing them as opportunities. Only when you feel a complete
sense of responsibility for your profession, you can respond with ability. So
unconditionally put your hands up and be counted.
ALLOW THE LEADER WITHIN YOU TO EMERGE.
On the happy occasion of Banks 38th Foundation Day, let us rededicate
ourselves with a commitment to endeavour for strengthening our beloved
organisation.
Cordially yours,
UMESH CHAND ASAWA

Success usually comes to those who are too


busy to be looking for it.

RBI RULES FOR PREPAID CARDS


India is rapidly witnessing metro rail development
in several cities. The government is emphasizing on
building new smart cities and development of urban
infrastructure. The RBI on Monday unveiled rules
for issuing prepaid cards on mass transit systems in
cities. You can use these cards for your daily
commute through your citys metro, bus or other
transport. You can also use it merchant locations to
make payments.
Here are 5 things to know:
1. What is mass transit system: Mass transit
system is shared transportation that can carry a
large number of passengers from one place to
another. Rapid transit comprises of bus, metro,
mono rail and light rail.
2. What are prepaid instruments: Semi prepaid
instruments facilitate purchase of goods and
services against the value stored on such
instrument. The pre-paid instruments can be issued
as smart cards, magnetic stripe cards, internet
accounts, internet wallets, mobile accounts, mobile
wallets, paper vouchers and any such instrument
which can be used to access the pre-paid amount
(collectively called Prepaid Payment Instruments
hereafter).
3. Semi-closed system pre-paid payment
instruments: These can be used for purchase of
goods and services, including inancial services at a
group of clearly identi ied merchant locations/

establishments which have a speci ic contract with


the issuer to accept the payment instruments. These
instruments do not permit cash withdrawal or
redemption by the holder.
4. How they work: A new category of semi-closed
Prepaid Payment Instruments (PPI) is being
introduced. It would be issued by mass transit
operators and have an automated fare collection
system. Apart from the mass transit system, this
instrument can also be used at other merchants
whose activities are allied to or carried on within the
premises of the transit system. It would have a
minimum validity of six months from the date of
issue and maybe reloadable in nature and at no
point of time the outstanding balance can exceed Rs
2000. No cash-outs or refund will be permitted.
5. Less cash society: Mass transit is one such area,
where a large number of small value cash payments
take place. Considering the population density in
India, queues for ticketing are normal. The Reserve
Bank of India (RBI) placed on its website the inal
guidelines on Prepaid Payment Instruments for
Mass Transit System (PPI-MTS). Semi-closed
prepaid payment instruments for mass transit
systems will now be issued to enhance the
commuter convenience. It will also facilitate the
migration to electronic payments in line with the
countrys vision of moving to a less-cash society.

THALASSEMIA AND SICKLE CELLS


Most of our physical characteristics are inherited
through the genes we take from our parents; for
example, the shape of our nose, the colour of our skin
and eyes. We also inherit type of our haemoglobin (Hb)
from our parents through the genes. Haemoglobin is
the substance in the blood which gives it its red colour.
It carries the oxygen we breathe to all our body parts; it
is vital for maintaining life.
Thalassemia is an inherited blood disorder in which
the body is unable to make adequate haemoglobin.
Haemoglobin is present in the red cells and is made
from proteins. These proteins consist of Alpha (a) and
Beta (b) chains. Imbalances in these chains results in
reduced red cells survival. In Thalassemia, red cell
survival is reduced.
Thalassemia manifests in early infancy (6 to 18
months) with anaemia, poor growth, liver and spleen
enlargement. If untreated, this condition is invariably
fatal during the irst ive years of life. Survival of
Thalassemia patients depends upon repeated blood
transfusion and costly medicines lifelong. With the
advent of modern practices, blood transfusion, and
improved chelating therapy, Thalassemics have
bene itted and the disease is no longer fatal.
In our country, Beta Thalassemia is very common and
the term Thalassemia here denotes Beta Thalassemia.
Magnitude of the Problem: * 4.5% of world
p o p u l a t i o n ( 2 5 0 m i l l i o n ) i s T h a l a s s e m i a
minor/carriers/traits. In India, there are over 35
million Thalassemia Carriers (nearly 4.2% of
population). It is estimated that about 10 to 12000
Thalassemia major children are born every year in our
country.
Diagnosis: Complete blood picture detects anaemia. It
also gives clue to Thalassemia as Sickle cell disease. Hb
electrophoresis con irms the diagnosis. HPLC
( a u t o m a t e d s y s t e m ) d e t e c t s a l l t y p e s o f
haemoglobinopathy with precision.
Management of Thalassamia: * Regular blood
transfusion preferably saline washed packed cell
transfusion to be given every 3 weeks, so as to maintain
pre-transfusion Hb > 9 gm% and post transfusion
level around 12 gm%. Newly diagnosied Thalassemia
major child must be given Hepatitis B vaccine
(4doses). Other immunization should be given as per
universal immunization schedule. Regular and

periodical medical checkups include screening for


Hepatitis B and C, HIV, Serum ferreting, Serum Calcium
and phosphorous levels, dental checkups, cardiac
checkups, renal function tests and endocrine function
tests. High protein, low iron and high calorie diet is
advised for Thalassemic patients. Iron Chelating
therapy after 15 transfusions or if serum ferreting >
100 gm/ml. Bone marrow transplantation can cure the
disease with donor availability and cost permitting.
Gene therapy (possibly in the future).
Life Expectancy: Quality of life depends upon severity
of disease. No diagnosis/Treatment 1 to 5 years. Only
blood transfusion, no chelating 8 to 18 years.
Maintain pre-transfusion Hb > 9gm% + Iron chelating
Normal Lifespan.
With proper management, Thal major children can
l e a d n o r m a l h e a l t hy l i fe , a t te n d i n g s c h o o l ,
participating in sports and can also marry and give
birth to children.
What is sickle cell Anaemia?: Sickle cell disease is an
inherited disorder in which red blood cells (RBCs) are
abnormally shared. All the problems in sickle cell
disease are due to its shape, which resembles a C
shaped farm tool called a sickle. Normal red blood cells
are lexible and low easily but in sickle cell disease,
due to its deformity, they are sti and can get stuck in a
tiny blood vessels cutting o the blood supply to
nearby tissues. This abnormality can result in painful
episodes, serious infections, chronic anaemia and
damage due to body organs. It may also be co-inherited
with Thalessemia, causing a condition known as Sickle
Cell Thalassemia. These complication can, however,
vary from person to person depending on the type of
sickle cell disease each has. Some people are relatively
healthy and others are hospitalized frequently. Today
with early diagnosis and treatment, most kids born
with this disorder grow up to live relatively healthy
and productive lives.
Parameters for detection: Clinical anaemia.
Haematological: MCV, MCH and NESTROF Test.
Laboratory: Hb%, HbF, Hb variant analysis,
e l e c t r o p h o r e s i s . Tr e a t m e n t : S y m p t o m a t i c

transfusion.

SALAM HYDERABAD
OFFICIAL RETREAT RASHTRAPATHI
BHAVAN
The Asaf Jahi dynasty has surely got a unique play
in the history of erstwhile Hyderabad. It has not
only played a very prominent role in the
development of the city, but also left behind a
great aura and history to share with the readers.
It was during the time of the sixth and seventh
Nizam that Hyderabad, as a state he attracted
great attention from the other rulers. The undenying fact of both the Nizams is that they were
known for their grandeur and royalty and left
their mark in one form or the other, majorly in
various constructions that are spread across the
city and are known as the major landmarks.
Rashtrapathi Nilayam, originally known as
Resident House, is the of icial retreat of the
President of India, where President stays for at
least once a year and conducts of icial business. It
is also used as a guest house for visiting
dignitaries.
Located in Bolarum, the Residency House was
constructed in 1860 by Nizam Nazir-ud- Dowla.
It became the country house of the British
Residents who were then living in the city, but
after the Hyderabad states annexation in 1948,
became Presidents retreat and used as Sothern
Sojourn.
The 16-room estate is spread over an area of 90
acres consisting of single storied building
besides visitors quarters that can accommodate
150 people. It has a dining hall, darbar hall,
morning room; cinema hall etc., Unique aspect of
this Rashtrapathi Nilayam is that the kitchen and
dining hall are independent buildings connected

with an underground tunnel to take food.


The retreats premises comprises landscape
garden, seasonal lowering plants and display of
potted plants around the main building and
natural cascading waterfalls. The herbal garden
has 116 species of medical and aromatic plants
like Sarpagandha, Kalabanda (Aloe Vera),
citronella, lemon grass, Khus, Geranium,
Coriander, Sandalwood, Tube Rose, Jasmine,
Kalmegh, Tulsi and Isbgol among others.
The garden is located in an area of about 7000
square meters. The garden has also developed
annuals, perennials, creepers and shrubs.
Several measures have been taken during the last
two years for conservation of rain water to
protect the plants. Earlier, the rainwater used to
low out of the Nilayam premises, which is now
collected and conserved, resulting in substantial
rise in ground water level. New water sources
like bore wells have been developed and existing
open wells have been developed for ef icient
water irrigation and drip irrigation system at the
complex.
PURSHOTAMDAS MANDHANA

Man alone can immortalise himself by what he creates and leaves behind. Much after you and I
are physically gone, you and I can continue to live through the legacy we create and leave behind.
In that sense, you and I shall never die.
Let the lingering question be- What can I create that will outlive my lifetime?

BAD LOANS BURDEN BANKS


UNRECOVERD LOANS OF PUBLIC SECTOR BANKS MOUNT TO Rs. 2.67 Lakh Crore in FY 2015
Fundamentally, strong Indian inancial system
continues to suer on account of bad loans,
more so in the case of public sector banks. The
latest igures are as scary as before. Union
Minister for Finance told Parliament on 21st
July, 2015 that the bad loans at public sector
banks (PSBs) in the country have jumped to Rs.
2.67 lakh crore at the end of March 2015 from
Rs. 2.16 lakh crore a year ago. The NPAs of PSU
banks for the system as a whole are increasing
continuously.
The gross NPA ratio of PSBs has gone up to
5.34% at the end of March 2015 as compared to
4.72% a year ago. The government, RBI and the
PSBs are all concerned with timely recovery of
NPAs as it aects their pro itability and capital
adequacy.
During 2014-15, the public sector banks have
recovered Rs. 41236 crore as compared to Rs.
33698 crore in the previous iscal. The recovery
mechanism in the form of debt recovery
tribunals (DRTs), Board for Industrial and
Financial Reconstruction, Central Registry of
Securitisation Asset Reconstruction and
Security Interest of India (CERSAI) and Central
Repository of Information of Large Credit
(CRILC) has been functional. Moreover, the

percentage of government shareholding


marginally declined in the case of six PSBs
during last three years on account of raising of
capital by these banks from market.
The RBI has instructed banks in early
recognition of inancial distress, prompt steps
for resolution suggesting various measures
with speci ic timelines for implementation of
corrective action. The RBI has also introduced
lexible structuring of long term project loans to
infrastructure and core industries which takes
into account the lifecycle of the project for the
purpose of repayment. It estimates that the
market share of public sector banks will decline
from 80% in 2000 to just over 60% in 2015.
Compared to the PSBs, the private sector banks
are reaping rich pro its. The total net pro it of
private sector banks together was Rs. 1153
crore more than all public sector banks during
2014-15. Total net pro it of private sector banks
was Rs. 38976 crore for the year 2014-15
whereas for PSBs, the igure is Rs. 37823.39
crore.
All 27 PSBs in India together have a market
share of about 70% while there are about 20
private sector banks operating at present.

NOW Rs.100 NOTES TO COME WITH NUMERALS


In Ascending Size In Number Panels

The Reserve Bank of India, in its noti ication


dated 25th June, 2015 said that it has issued `
100 denomination banknotes in Mahatma
Gandhi Series 2005 with a new numbering
pattern. Now the numerals in both the
number panels of these banknotes will be in
ascending size from left to right, while the
irst three alphanumeric characters (pre ix)
will remain constant in size. (see illustration)
Printing the numerals in ascending size is a
visible security feature in the banknotes so
that the general public can easily distinguish a
counterfeit note from a genuine one. The
Re s e r ve B a n k , i n c o n s u l t a t i o n w i t h

Government of India, has been improving


security features of Indian banknotes so as to
make their counterfeiting dif icult and make
it easy for members of public to identify
genuine banknotes. The design of banknotes
with numerals in ascending size is similar in
all other respects to the current design of
`100 banknotes in Mahatma Gandhi Series
2005 except for the new numbering pattern.
The banknotes will continue to have "`"
symbol on the obverse and the reverse, an
inset letter 'R' in both the numbering panels,
bear the signature of Dr. Raghuram G. Rajan,
Governor, Reserve Bank of India, and the year
of printing '2015' printed on the reverse of
the banknotes. All the banknotes in the
denomination of ` 100 issued by the Reserve
Bank in the past will continue to be legal
tender. The new numbering pattern will be
introduced in a phased manner in all other
denominations.

India that members of public and institutions write
number, name or messages, etc. on the watermark

Any defacement on the window will not allow the
common man to identify one of the features of a

Sri Ramesh Kumar Bung, while speaking on


the occasion said that the Bank has been
encouraging various sports and games and
other cultural activities to instil enthusiasm
among the employees and their children for
the past few years. He pronounced that
sports and games play an important role in
the development of human personality. All
the sports and games and cultural activities
certainly bene it both mind and body. They
create cheerfulness, discipline, fellowship,
con idence and physical itness.

It takes many good deeds to build a good reputation, and only one bad one to lose it Benjamin Franklin

Sri Asawa stated that games and sports are


essential for the all round development of a
personality. It is by playing games and
sports that we can develop and maintain
our health. Games keep our body alert,
active, youthful and energetic.
In activities involving games and sports,
blood-circulation increases and there is an
increased supply of oxygen. Only a healthy
person can work long, hard and cheerfully.
An unhealthy person may not take as much
interest in work as a healthy one. Health can
be maintained by exercise alone.
Ms. Naina Jaiswal asserted that games and
sports have some additional bene its as
they are played in groups and in healthy
competitive spirit. Among many other
things, they help develop co-operation,
quality of leadership, team spirit and a
willingness to submit to, and further, the
rule of law. Games instil in the players the
spirit of self-reliance, justice, fair play and
sporting spirit. They make people bold,
adventurous, social, disciplined and more

conscious of their responsibilities towards


society and nation. Players have been found
better equipped to ight superstitions,
communalism, obscurantism and narrow
approach to issues of national interest.
Ms. Sahaja Sri said that games also help in
ove rc o m i n g t h e s e n s e o f v i o l e n c e ,
arrogance and superiority as these are
purged by providing them suf icient outlet.
A sports person may not lose his or her
temper and morale even in the face of defeat
because he/she would take it coolly, calmly
and then would try to perform better the
next time. Players know that victory and
defeat are the two aspects of the same coin.
There is more joy in playing than in its end
result, Sri Bung further revealed. He wished
all the best for the players who are
participating in the various games.
After the inaugural function, various games
like Cricket, Musical Chairs, Lemon and
Spoon, Sack Race and others continued till
evening. Competitions in music were
conducted in Sta Training College later.

Singers from dierent branches participating in music competitions held at the bank on

INDIA'S POPULATION CROSSES 127 CRORE MARK


ON WORLD POPULATION DAY, 11TH July 2015
To gauge the mammoth rise of the Indian
population, the most ideal places to visit are Metro
stations, airports, malls, railway stations and bus
stands. As we prepare to observe the World
Population Day (11.07.2015), a road-map to
expand healthcare access across the nation has
become a critical priority for the policymakers.
As per the Indian census carried out in 2011, the
population igure was 121,01,93,422 well above
the one billion mark. India, with a population of
127,42,39,769 as on 11.07.2015 (as against the
world population of 737,624,11,239 as on
population day), the second most populous country
in the world (17.29%), is projected to surpass China
by 2025.
The poignant fact is that the igures are rising by the
day despite the population control policies, family
planning and welfare programmes undertaken by
the government. The mortality rate is on decline
thanks to the advancement in the ield of medicine,
but there has been no signi icant success in terms of
bringing down the birth rate.
Much of population increase is among the poorest
s o c i o - e c o n o m i c s t ra t a . Re l a t ive ly, s o c i o economically advanced Indian States displayed a
fertility rate of less than 2.1 in 2009, which is less
than the level needed to maintain a stable
population following the infant mortality standards
in developed nations. Though the one-child policy
in China was criticized as against human dignity
and rights, it has helped China to control its
population by a possible 400 million people.
There is a distinct possibility of irreversible and
unsustainable population growth and big question
marks remain over how India will provide nearly
1.7 billion people with their basic minimum needs.
As of 2013 statistics, the number of private
hospitals and private doctors had shown a multiplefold increase at 7500+ and 300000 respectively.
Similarly, the private sector has enabled an
increased availability of medicines by setting up
pharmacies/chemist shops. There are more than
105000 chemists who are providing medicines in
120 cities in the country. Nevertheless, a very
disproportionate increase in the population has

raised fears of an alarming shortfall in terms of the


doctor-patient ratio and the corresponding
accessibility to quality healthcare.
Increasing the welfare and status of women and
girls; imparting education; enhancing awareness
for the use of family planning methods; sex
education; encouraging male sterilisation and
spacing births can be some of the ways to curtail the
escalating population. It would be ideal for the
country like India to be more progressive in outlook
and shed inhibitions when it comes to free
distribution of family planning devices among the
poor. We must select a strategy that provides
signi icant healthcare access bene its to the Indian
population. Sustainable policy solutions to
healthcare inancing, infrastructure and human
resource challenges are critically needed.
While there are pockets of improvements,
signi icant healthcare access challenges continue to
exist for the Indian population. The longer India
delays acknowledging the severity of these
problems and dealing with them head on, the grave
the consequences are likely to be. We will look into
some salient features:

Indian population grew 5 times in the last 100


years.

Density of population is more in India. 386


people live per square kilometre. Whereas in
China, the density is 145 people in one square
kilometre.

32% of Indian population reside in towns.

It is estimated by 2020, that the Indian


population would reach to 147.63 crore
whereas in China, it would be 144 crores. We
may be 162 crore in 2050 as against China of
138 crore.

UP stands irst with population of 18 crores.

On 11th July 1987, the world population


reached exactly 500 crores. On this occasion,
UNO decided to commemorate 11th July as the
World Population Day.

CLASSIFICATION OF WARRIORS
in Mahabharata War
Bhishma, the grandsire of both the Kauravas and
the Pandavas, analyzed each warrior on both
sides of the battle. He said there are 3 types of
warriors. They are the Rathi, the Atirathi and the
Maharathi. Based on his judgement and
knowledge of the science of weapons he classi ied
every warrior involved in the Mahabharata war.
According to him the highest level of a warrior is
t h e M a h a r a t h i . H e d e i n e d t h e t h r e e
classi ications as follows:
Rathi: A warrior capable of attacking 5,000
warriors simultaneously.
Atirathi: A warrior capable of contending with 12
Rathi class warriors or 60,000 warriors
simultaneously.
Maharathi: A warrior capable of ighting 12
Atirathi class warriors or 720,000 warriors
simultaneously, and having complete mastery of
all forms of weapons and combat skills.

Lord Shiva in battle according to Bhishma; but the


only pre-condition is that Asvathama has to
become extremely angry to unleash his full
potential.) Karna is equal to 2 Maharathi.
Bhishma, even though he never classi ied himself.
Later it was revealed that Bhishma was equal to 2
Maharathi warriors.
