10.5 lakh students comes under mid day meal programs

Midday meals provided to students of schools should be mandatory tested by accredited labs each month for quality and nutrition under new rules notified by the government which will also make available an allowance if food is not given.

The move for tests came against the backdrop of frequent complaints of sub-standard food being distributed under the mid-day meal programme that covers roughly 10.5 lakh students across the country.

The Mid-Day Meal Rules, 2015, notified on Wednesday under the Food Security Act 2013, also seeks to fix responsibility on persons for non-supply of food for three consecutive school days or five days in a month.

It also seeks to improve efficiency in implementation by plugging loopholes, check irregularities and ensure quality of food served, officials in HRD Ministry said on Thursday.

Testing of the meals by accredited labs has been made mandatory under the new rules to ensure nutritional standards.

Unwashed rags for sanitary protection.

Syrian women in refugee camps currently use unwashed rags for sanitary protection.
Close to 50,000 women refugees from war ravaged Syria and Iraq, currently living in refugee camps in Jordan, use unwashed rags for sanitary protection; putting them at risk of falling ill as their meager UN allowance would not allow them to buy sanitary pads.
But if all goes according to plan, the women will soon have a solution to this problem. Amy Peake, founder of Loving Humanity, an organization that is working for the refugees of the conflict zone in association with the United Nations, is all set to replicate the low-cost sanitary napkin manufacturing model of Sakhi enterprise, founded by Vadodara’s Swati Bedekar, who promotes menstrual hygiene in rural India.

452 Jail Inmates to Appear for Peace Exam on Gandhi Jayanti

452 inmates of Taloja, Nagpur and Aurangabad jails in Maharashtra would appear for an examination on Gandhian thoughts on October 2, the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.

“The preacher of non-violence, Mahatma Gandhi, devoted his life for spreading non-violence and he proved that it is an effective weapon. He spent six and a half years of his life in jail. He utilised this time to develop his qualities.

“Years after his departure, his thoughts are seen prevailing in the society and also in the prisons where the inmates are undergoing imprisonment as a result of violent anger that lasts only a fraction of minutes,” TK Somaiya of Bombay Sarvodaya Mandal said.

The Mandal, in association with other Gandhian institutions, is organising the Gandhi Peace Examination for last 10 years in various jails of Maharashtra as part of reformation programmes for prisoners, he said in a release.

“The result has been inspiring. The aim of the examination is to evoke the sense of regret among prisoners and to inculcate qualities of ‘Satya’ (truth) and ‘Ahimsa’ (non-violence) amongst them,” he added.

Convicted for a number of crimes in 2005, Laxman Gole has been preaching Gandhi’s views among prisoners in jails all over Maharashtra through Sarvodaya Mandal.

“Books written by Mahatma Gandhi and his thoughts are made available to the inmates free of cost. “We shall conduct an examination of 80 marks in which the inmates would have to answer 80 objective type questions.

Those who pass the exam will receive Certificate and Khadi clothes as a prize,” Mr Gole said.
