1011 passengers being tracked for Ebola Virus Disease

No passenger isolated at the quarantine facility today
A cumulative number of 1011 passengers are being tracked by IDSP. Most of them are in the States of Maharashtra, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Gujarat, West Bengal and Delhi.

During past 24 hours, 201 passengers from the affected countries have arrived at the airports of Mumbai (88), Delhi (58), Chennai (24), Bangalore (15), Kochi (11), Trivandrum (4) and Kolkata (1). As on 07.09.2014, 16531 passengers have been screened [Low risk: 16489; Medium Risk: 07 and High Risk: 35]. No passenger has been isolated at the quarantine facility, today.

M/s Afcons and International SOS have brought back 113 passengers (including 02 Nepalese Nationals) from Liberia to India. 96 passengers landed in Mumbai and another 17, in Delhi. The passengers who landed in Delhi were also taken to Mumbai by M/s Afcons. They have all travelled to their respective destinations. State Governments have been provided with the details. The IDSP is tracking these passengers. Report has been received from the State IDSP units of 20 States tracking these passengers. 104 passengers have been tracked and are being monitored.

The Control Room in the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare has received 728 calls since its inception on 09/08/2014 morning and only 2 calls received in the past 24 hours. Most of the callers have sought information on signs and symptoms of the disease and travel related risk of acquiring the infection.


In Ghaziabad, last year a male student of the Delhi University was raped by the goons of his girlfriend’s father. Then, the girl’s father set dogs on the sodomised boy, rubbed salt and chillies into his wounds and left him to suffer.
In Kerala, 26-year-old Vinodhan, switched on his computer and wrote, “I am a rape survivor”. A homosexual, Vinodhan, got the courage to come out in the open about the horrific trauma that he went through only after he heard the news of the brutal Delhi rape case. When he was 18, he was gang raped by six drunken men, and he still suffers psychological trauma when he meets strangers. Till now he has not been able to recover and doesn't feel safe amongst unknown men.
In another instance, 29-year-old, Krishna, was attacked by a stranger when he was walking to his aunt’s house in Kerala. Fortunately for him, he managed to scream and get away before his attackers managed to sodomise him.
These are some of the real cases of Indian men being sexually abused as reported by the major leading newspapers. But, there are plenty of cases that go unreported and unacknowledged, just because people are still struggling with the very question- Can men be raped too?

Male rape is a reality!

Most of you might find this hard to digest, but yes men can be raped too. And, they are raped– sometimes by men, other times by women. Well, men being raped by women is an ugly reality too that still lurks in the dark corners. Such things do not come out in the open as people do not want to accept or acknowledge that such a thing is ever possible as well. In the United States, 1 out of 21 men report to being physically abused. In India, such a study still has to see the light of the day.

Rape survivors speak!

Bringing the quiet struggle that men, who have survived such instances, into light, here comes a brave initiative. Project Unbreakable, encourages rape survivors to talk about their suffering as a way to increase awareness of the issues surrounding sexual assault. 
It was on this platform that men, who have gone through the trauma of rape and assault, held up placards quoting the people who attacked them.
This is a platform for victims to voice their stories, and help them bring their trauma to the fore and overcome it eventually. It encourages the act of healing through art.

Insult to their injury!

There are numerous incidents of male rape in India and all over the world. Men undergo as much trauma and emotional suffering as women do. Men are entitled to guard their honour as much as women are. Yet, male rape is not taken as seriously as female rape. Worst of all, male rape victims are humiliated. Their “manliness” is questioned. The humiliating part is when people actually run them down and refuse to acknowledge the fact that men can be raped too.

Male rape– always existed!

Male rape can be traced back to history. Soldiers of the victorious armies raped the defeated soldiers as an act of establishing total control over them. In Rome and Persia, men were gang raped as a punishment for crime, such as infidelity and theft. Such brutality against men continues even in the modern day. In fact, cases of male rape have become more common and more frequent.
Thanks to such biased and insulting outlook, male rape victims swallow their injury and keep quiet about it. Confused and ashamed about what they went through, several male victims do not even take medical or professional help to deal with their trauma. They shudder to go to the police because they know that the guardians of law might add insult to their injury. As a result, the male victims of rape end up being a silent community.
Since its conception in October 2011, Project Unbreakable has featured over three thousand images of sexual assault survivors holding posters with quotes from their attackers. Join hands with Project Unbreakable and help victimised men find their voice in this cruel brutal world. If you do, you will also be playing an important role in creating a safer and more secure world for everybody.


9 Things Money Cannot Buy

Money only goes so far.

Money can't buy love, if you ask The Beatles.

Or class, if you ask "Real Housewives" cast member Countess Luann.

And it can't buy happiness. (Although, according to psychology research, how you choose to spend it can do a certain amount in that area.)

Those can't be the only things without a price tag, can they? 

Admittedly, you could argue that money simply can't buyanything that isn't for sale or that money can facilitate the acquisition of nearly anything, for sale or not.

But when a Quora user asked the community "What's the thing that money cannot buy?" users came up with a few more priceless desirables. Here are our favorites:

1. A healthy sense of self-worth

One Quora user describes how, after watching a TV show where the lead character bought a house, which was quickly followed by a marriage proposal, she also got a mortgage. "I thought I could buy the marriage proposal, too," she writes. "Instead of doing the internal work required, I thought my self-worth would come from the house. It bankrupted me." —Claudia Altucher

2. More time

In that it can help you outsource your tasks to spend your time how you prefer, money can buy you time. "However, none of us knows how long we have on this earth, so in that sense it cannot buy you more time to live." —Krystle Hannigan

3. Skill

"You can take classes in any art from the best teachers and coaches available, but only effort, sweat, and willpower can buy skill. Money can give you the freedom and time to practice things, and get you better gear and instruction, and buy you the tools that help facilitate skill but skill is only between you and the art. Money may or may not open the door, but only your effort and will can walk you through that door." —Josh Vogel

4. Real respect

"People might act as if they respect you, but what they respect is the power of money and not you as a person. Respect is earned through your actions." —Krystle Hannigan

5. Work-life balance

"You can earn millions or zillions of dollars, but that money cannot buy you work-life balance. You yourself have to manage it." —Arti Agarwal

6. A good reputation

Sure, you can buy a PR person to make you look good, but ultimately, your reputation will come down to you, "earned through how you deal with others." —Krystle Hannigan

7. Innocence

"The best things in life have no relation with money. The sad part, once you lose them, you can't get them back, no matter how much money you have." —Alok Pandey

8. Health

"... for a body ill cared for. All the money in the world won't fix that." —Anne W Zahra

9. Enough

One user tells a story about Joseph Heller, the author of famous novel "Catch-22." At a party full of wealthy young men, it was pointed out to him that one of the attendees probably earned more annually than the money Heller's books made him over a lifetime. " Joseph He ller looked at the 25 year old guy then said, 'But I have one thing that that man will never have.' His friend gave a sort of scoff and said, 'What could that possibly be?' And Joseph Heller said, 'Enough.'" —James Altucher

Poll: 2/3rd say no to BJP forming minority govt

NEW DELHI: BJP may soon get another shot at forming Delhi after nearly six months of President's rule, but popular opinion in the capital seems to be heavily against such a move and in favour of fresh elections. An opinion poll exclusive to TOI shows that an overwhelming 90% of Delhiites are for fresh polls and almost two-thirds feel BJP should not form a minority government.

The aversion to the idea of a government being formed by BJP from within the current assembly might stem from the perception that this can only be possible through dubious means.

When asked whether they believed the allegations of horse trading being levelled against BJP, just under half the respondents said they did and less than a third said they did not, the rest saying they did not know or couldn't say.

The poll was conducted by market research agency CVoter and polled 1,038 people in the capital.

The poll also provides an indication of why BJP seems so reluctant to hold fresh elections in Delhi despite having swept the Lok Sabha polls, winning all seven seats by margins of over a lakh of votes in each case. The media perception might be that Aam Aadmi Party is a spent force, but BJP appears to be less sure on this count and perhaps rightly so. According to the poll, about 43% said AAP would get a majority in fresh elections while a smaller 37% felt BJP could get a majority.

There was also a slight preference for an AAP-Congress coalition over an AAP-BJP coalition in the event of a hung assembly emerging once again. Around 39% of the respondents said they would prefer an AAP-Congress government compared to about 32% for the other potential combination.

AAP's Arvind Kejriwal remains the favourite for chief minister, with 34.4% picking him compared to 17.1% for Harsh Vardhan, who is now the Union health minister. No other potential candidate for the job got even 10% of the votes.

Within those now in BJP, Harsh Vardhan remains the clear popular choice with 34.8% saying that he was the party's best option for the post and no other BJP leader getting into double digits. Interestingly, however, when asked whether they were in favour of the idea of Kiran Bedi joining BJP and becoming chief minister, almost 65% said yes.

The support for Arvind Kejriwal is despite the fact that a decisive 70% said his popularity has waned in Delhi. Why the support then? The answer may lie in what have been identified as Delhi's biggest problems?inflation (26%), power (16%), water (14%) and corruption (12%). Perhaps it is the perception that Aam Aadmi Party's 49-day government had acted on the last three issues in this list and BJP has failed to do much about the first that explains the continuing goodwill for Kejriwal and his party.
