New Delhi: The reconstruction of hospitals in the border areas of Manipur’s districts of Chandel, Churachandpur and Ukhrul, in north-eastern parts of India have not only helped but also benefited poor Myanmarese who are settled alongside neglected border areas.

The director of health department Manipur, Okram Ibomcha, is working towards rebuilding the border hospitals and overseeing the presence of doctors and paramedics in these remote areas where there are virtually no accommodation and basic amenities.


Three junior doctors are posted at the Public Health Centre (PHC) at Parbung in Churachandpur district.

An agency visited this neglected border village, there was just one doctor. He said since the healthy mountain tribals hardly require hospitalisation, each of the doctors stay there on a 15-day rotation basis.

At the village, the presence of nurses and other staff was also small. There were just two indoor patients.

Kwatha, a border village, can boast of one public health centre (PHC) where one woman delivered a healthy baby in candlelight some days ago. Other PHCs in Ukhrul district have also started functioning normally.

In the recent past, the tribals there used to get medical help from the military hospitals of the Assam Rifles.

In the absence of a hospital at Poi in Ukhrul district, the villagers get help from a small hospital of the Assam Rifles there.

From time to time, the Assam Rifles has been issuing press releases on medical camps in these interior areas and saving snake bite victims.(IANS)

Clinicians must encourage their patients to report any changes to periods or unexpected vaginal bleeding after vaccination.

Some women say they experienced period changes after getting a Covid-19 vaccination. While the reported changes are short-lived, research into this possible adverse reaction remains critical to the success of the vaccination programme, according to an editorial published in The BMJ.

"A link between menstrual changes after Covid-19 vaccination is plausible and should be investigated," wrote Dr Victoria Male, a reproductive specialist at Imperial College London, in the editorial. Reports of menstrual changes after Covid-19 vaccination have been made for both mRNA and adenovirus-vectored vaccines, she added, suggesting that, if there is a connection, it is likely to be a result of the immune response to vaccination, rather than to a specific vaccine component, she said.

Children playing ringa ringa roses in an open backyard in England

Great historic events that have shaped the world and changed the outlines of countries are often not recorded in memory, or so we think. Wars made sure to destroy evidence and heritage, and the ones who survived told the tale of what really happened. Folklore, albeit through oral tradition kept alive many such stories, hidden in verse, limericks, and rhymes.

Ringa-ringa-roses, a common playtime rhyme among children across the world, is an example of folklore that has survived for many centuries. It tells the story of the The Great Plague of London which ravaged the city between 1665-1666.
