UGC Writes to Universities to Encourage Staff, Students to Participate in Vidyanjali initiative


 The University Grants Commission (UGC) has written to its affiliated universities asking them to encourage staff and students to participate as volunteers in the Vidyanjali initiative, an Ministry of Education project. The letter by UGC has directed the universities to disseminate information about the initiative.

The Vidyanjali initiative of the Ministry of Education (MoE) was unveiled by Prime Minister Narendra Modi last year. The initiative aims to strengthen the infrastructure and improving education quality in government schools. It is a unique school volunteer management programme that provides volunteers from communities and organisations to connect with schools in both urban and rural areas by allowing the private sector to participate.

“Envisioned in NEP 2020, Vidyanjali upholds the spirit of volunteerism and community participation in transforming the education system of India" reads the UGC letter.

A volunteer can contribute through the Vidyanjali initiative either by providing services or assets/material/equipment. Under ‘services’ a volunteer can provide subject assistance, assistance for teaching art & craft; yoga sports; vocational skills; languages, teaching assistanance for children with special needs, providing nutritional support in addition to mid-day meals, etc.

Whereas under ‘assets/ materials/ equipment’ participants can provide sponsorship of trained counsellors, special educators, sponsorship of sports and cultural events, sponsorship of medical camps, sponsorship of self-defence training, and so on. The scheme, however, mentions that asset contribution can not be in the form of any monetary support.

Under the scheme, schools post their requests on the Vidyanjali portal and volunteers interested in the programme can connect with them online, as the Secretary’s letter has specified.

According to August 23, 2022, data, Vidyanjali so far has 3.38 lakh schools on-boarded on the platform. Moreover, it has more than 50,000 volunteers. With this scheme, around 49,486 students have received assistance.

Earlier, the Union School Education Secretary has written to all government secretaries asking for their help in encouraging, contributions by Public Sector Units (PSUs) in basic infrastructure for government schools across the country.

घर में रखी हैं खांसी की ये 4 सिरप तो फौरन हटा दें, WHO ने जारी किया अलर्ट, 66 बच्‍चों की मौत से जुड़ा है मामला


 WHO : डब्‍ल्‍यूएचओ ने कहा है कि इन चारों सिरप के सैंपल्‍स का लैबोरेटरी विश्लेषण यह पुष्टि करता है कि सभी कफ सिरप में डायथिलीन ग्लाइकॉल और एथिलीन ग्लाइकॉल की अस्वीकार्य मात्रा है।

विश्व स्वास्थ्य संगठन (WHO) ने भारत की मेडेन फार्मास्यूटिकल्स (Maiden Pharmaceuticals) द्वारा बनाई गई 4 ‘कफ एंड कोल्‍ड' सिरप (Cough Syrup) को लेकर अलर्ट जारी किया है। WHO ने इन कफ सिरप को अफ्रीकी देश गाम्बिया में 66 बच्चों की मौतों से जोड़ा है। एक मेडिकल प्रोडक्‍ट अलर्ट में डब्‍ल्‍यूएचओ ने कहा है कि इन चारों सिरप के सैंपल्‍स का लैबोरेटरी विश्लेषण यह पुष्टि करता है कि सभी कफ सिरप में डायथिलीन ग्लाइकॉल और एथिलीन ग्लाइकॉल की अस्वीकार्य मात्रा है। डब्‍ल्‍यूएचओ का मानना है कि ये दवाएं संभावित रूप से गुर्दे की गंभीर चोटों और 66 बच्चों की मौतों से जुड़ी हुई हैं। 

गाम्बिया की सरकार ने पिछले सप्ताह एक्‍यूट किडनी इंजरी में अचानक बढ़ोतरी होने की सूचना दी थी। कहा गया है कि अन्‍य लक्षणों के रूप में पेट में दर्द, उल्टी, दस्त, पेशाब करने में असमर्थता, सिरदर्द, बदली हुई मानसिक स्थिति और एक्‍यूट किडनी इंजरी जैसे परेशानियां आ सकती हैं, जिससे मौत हो सकती है। 

डब्ल्यूएचओ के महानिदेशक टेड्रोस एडनॉम घेब्येयियस ने बुधवार को एक प्रेस कॉन्‍फ्रेंस में कहा कि इन दूषित उत्पादों का अब तक केवल गाम्बिया में पता चला है। उन्हें अन्य देशों में भी वितरित किया जा सकता है। उन्होंने कहा कि डब्ल्यूएचओ सभी देशों को इन उत्पादों के बारे में जानकारी जुटाने और उन्‍हें इस्‍तेमाल नहीं करने सलाह देता है।

गाम्बिया के स्‍वास्‍थ्‍य मंत्रालय ने 9 सितंबर को ‘सिरप पेरासिटामोल' को लेकर एडवाइस जारी की थी। 5 महीनों में एक्‍यूट रेनल फेलियर की वजह से 4 साल की उम्र तक के 28 बच्‍चों की मौत के बाद सलाह जारी की गई थी। मामले की जांच 19 जुलाई को शुरू की गई थी। बच्चों की मौत कब हुई, इसके बारे में कोई डिटेल नहीं दी गई है। डब्ल्यूएचओ ने कहा कि भारत से प्राप्त जानकारी से संकेत मिलता है कि मैन्‍युफैक्‍चरर ने गाम्बिया को दूषित दवाओं की आपूर्ति की थी। इस बीच, सरकार ने भी फार्मास्युटिकल कंपनी द्वारा बनाई गई 4 कफ सिरप की जांच शुरू कर दी है। मीडिया रिपोर्टों के अनुसार, स्‍वास्‍थ्‍य मंत्रालय के सूत्रों ने कहा है कि WHO ने 29 सितंबर को ड्रग कंट्रोलर जनरल ऑफ इंडिया को कफ सिरप के बारे में आगाह किया था।

इन सिरप पर जारी हुआ अलर्ट

WHO ने जिन सिरप के लिए अलर्ट जारी किया है। उनमें ‘प्रोमेथाज़िन ओरल सॉल्यूशन' (Promethazine Oral Solution), ‘कोफेक्समालिन बेबी कफ सिरप' (Kofexmalin Baby Cough Syrup), ‘मकॉफ़ बेबी कफ सिरप' (Makoff Baby Cough Syrup) और ‘मैग्रीप एन कोल्ड सिरप' (Magrip N Cold Syrup) शामिल हैं।

ISRO plans to launch 36 OneWeb satellites this month.


The collaboration is a result of ISRO’s commercial arm NewSpace India Limited’s two service contracts, signed with One Web for launching low Earth orbit broadband communication satellites.

 ISRO said that as part of the contract, 36 satellites will be placed into orbit by one LVM3, from Satish Dhawan Space Centre.

Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) informed  that it will launch 36 satellites of United Kingdom’s global communications network OneWeb onboard its heaviest launcher LVM3 or the Launch Vehicle Mark III later this month. The launch under ‘OneWeb India-1 mission/ LVM3 M2' will mark LVM3’s entry into the global commercial launch service market.

The collaboration is a result of ISRO’s commercial arm NewSpace India Limited’s two service contracts, signed with One Web for launching low Earth orbit (LEO) broadband communication satellites. ISRO said that as part of the contract, 36 satellites will be placed into orbit by one LVM3, from Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh.

With the launch, OneWeb will have over 70 per cent of its planned ‘Gen 1 LEO constellations’ in orbit as it prepares to deliver high-speed, low latency connectivity for governments, businesses, and communities.

ISRO shared the details about the launch preparations on its Twitter handle, informing that integration of the cryogenic upper stage of the launch vehicle and the integration of payload fairing with 36 satellites will take place in the coming days, making it launch-ready by the 3rd or 4th week of October.

OneWeb - a global communications network powered by a constellation of 648 LEO satellites is headquartered in London. Launched in February 2019, it aims at delivering connectivity everywhere around the world through the implementation of a constellation of LEO satellites. India’s Bharti is a major investor and shareholder of OneWeb.
