With the second wave of Covid-19 infection gripping the country, children continue to be restricted to their homes. Deprived of the usual exposure so crucial to childhood and growing up, it is imperative to enable substitute activities that help them socialize, learn valuable life skills, and build new interests in a meaningful and safe way — to keep their growth and learning on course. Needless to say, any intervention must be designed in fun ways!

Here are some activities your child can participate in this summer:

According to the World Health Organization, in 2020 itself, there were 2.3 million women diagnosed with breast cancer in the world.

Over the last one-and-a-half-year, people have been vocal about both mental and physical health in relationships. Even while miles away from one another, people kept checking on the health and well-being of their loved ones. However, one issue, i.e., breast cancer has been affecting women throughout the world, and it still needs much more focus and attention.

According to the World Health Organization, in 2020 itself, there were 2.3 million women diagnosed with breast cancer in the world. A report published by National Cancer Registry Programme (NCRP) estimates that breast cancer cases are likely to increase by nearly 20 per cent. Throughout the world, the tenth month of the year is recognized as the month of "Pink October" to raise awareness about breast cancer. The month should also be a celebration of encouraging the women in our lives to take the first step in this journey of staying in "Pink of Health". happen, an international dating app, conducted an in-app survey to understand how Indians discuss health issues like breast cancer with their partners. The survey gave a glimpse of whether health issues are impacting the life and relationships of singles.

41 per cent of users are not aware of examinations related to women's health


Forty-one per cent of users shared that they did not encourage the women in their life (mother, sister, friend, etc.) to go for checkups for issues related to health. Sixteen per cent of the respondents confessed that they did not remind women in their life to take examinations for their own health. It is important to note that regular self-examination is likely to detect breast lumps early. One in eight women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. If it is detected in time, it will be cured in nine out of 10 cases.
