It falters on the fundamental question of how to fund it in an era of high costs, high inflation and the most expensive education envisioned.It is a surprise that the crucial question of funding not only for educating the coming generations but also paying the most important resource, the teachers in schools and faculty in higher education, has apparently not been mulled over.

Computer vision syndrome (CVS) ‘A threat to your eyes’

Computers are now an integral part of our life. They are now an essential component of all spheres of our lives- studies, work, leisure and even family time.

This advancement of Technology has overtaken our lives to the extent that we wonder what our lives will be without it. With all its benefits come certain Health related issues, awareness of which is minimal. This increased Technology-driven lifestyle can have adverse effects on our Eye Health. As per research and findings by Specialists between 60% and 90% of people who work at a computer screen have at least some symptoms caused due to visual display screen.

What is computer vision syndrome (CVS)?

Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) is a complex of eye and vision problems that result from prolonged use of Laptops, Tablets, Smart phones and Computers. They are usually caused by a combination of improper seating posture, poor lighting in the room, glare from the computer screen, sitting too close or too far from the screen, and uncorrected eye health disorders.

How does it affect the eyes and its symptoms

Computer Vision Syndrome is similar to carpal tunnel syndrome and other repetitive motion injuries you might get at work. It happens because eyes follow the same light path again and again. Long hours before the screens make the problem worse with the contrast, flicker and glare of the screen. As a result, high visual demands of computer and digital screen device viewing make many individuals susceptible to the development to the vision- related symptoms. In due course leads to eye strain and discomfort and you may have-

 Blurred VisionŸ

 Double VisionŸ

 Dry, red eyesŸ

 Eye irritationŸ

 HeadachesŸ

 Neck and back painŸ

How to prevent the computer vision syndrome

Computer Vision Syndrome can be avoided by taking the following simple corrective measures:

 Make sure your seat is comfortable. A comfortable chair withŸ support for your neck and back will help you avoid neck and shoulder strain.

 Position the digital display so that your head is in a naturally comfortable position while using.Ÿ

 Ensure your visual display screen is properly placed. It shouldŸ be 10 to 20 degrees below your eye level as measured from the screen’s centre, and about 20 to 26 inches away from your eyes.

 Follow the 20-20-20 method. Look away from the screen every 20Ÿ minutes or so and look at something around 20 feet away for 20 seconds. Blink often to keep your eyes moist.

 Use lighting that is neither too dim nor too bright. Also use anti-glare screens to minimize the glare from light sources.Ÿ

 Adjust the settings of brightness, contrast, and font size until your eyes feel comfortable.Ÿ

Prevention is better than cure

Eyes are amongst the most special assets. You must take care of your eyes. It is best to consult an Ophthalmologist for any problem with your eyes or any changes in your vision. He will examine you and advice you on how to resolve the problems. At the slightest hint of any eye problem that your child tells you, it is best to get the child’s eyes examined at the earliest. The older you get, it is better to see your Ophthalmologist at least once a year. If you notice any changes in your vision please do consult an Ophthalmologist immediately and tell him your problems. He may prescribe glasses or contact lenses and explain you the Dos and Don’ts. Early detection can avoid a visual challenge.

West Bengal Congress president Somen Mitra dies, cremation today; leaders pay tribute

KOLKATA, JULY 30,202:West Bengal Congress president Somen Mitra died of kidney and heart ailments at a private hospital in the early hours of Thursday.

Mitra was 78 and is survived by his son Rohan Mitra, state youth Congress leader, and wife Sikha Mitra, a former legislator.

“Saddened to hear about the passing away of veteran leader, former MP and West Bengal Congress president Somen Mitra. My deepest condolences to his family, followers and well-wishers,” tweeted chief minister Mamata Banerjee.

Mitra was admitted to the hospital a week ago and underwent dialysis twice. He will be cremated later in the day, said members of the family.

“All my love and support to family and friends of Somen Mitra at this difficult time. We will remember him with love, fondness and respect,” tweeted Rahul Gandhi.

Mitra was elected legislator from the Sealdah constituency in central Kolkata seven times. He was also elected to the Lok Sabha as a Trinamool Congress candidate in 2009 when he left the Congress for a few years only to return to the party again.

Mitra was state Congress president twice. During his first stint between 1992 and 1998, Mamata Banerjee left the party and formed the Trinamool Congress, alleging that Congress had become a weak Opposition against the Left Front government.

Leader of the Congress in the Lok Sabha and former president of the party’s West Bengal unit Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury said he has lost a guardian. “I started my career under his leadership. He helped me become a people’s representative for the first time.”

BJP state president Dilip Ghosh said, “Mitra was the face of the old political culture that was marked by decency and courtesy.”

CPI(M) politburo member and former Lok Sabha MP Md Salim said, “Mitra was one of those old timers who stayed in touch with people and knew individuals by their names and faces. He knew constituencies like the palm of his hand.”

India's COVID cases to peak in June-July: AIIMS director

New Delhi, May8,2020:All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) Director Dr Randeep Guleria on Thursday said India may witness the peak of COVID-19 cases in June or July. "The answer of when will be the peak of cases of COVID-19 in India depends upon modelling data. National and international both experts are analysing the data. Most of them have guessed that India will most likely see the peak in June or July," he said.

Dr Guleria added, earlier it was analysed that the peak will be in May but due to extended lockdown the peak has also been extended.

It is a dynamic process that depends upon various factors. It is a long-lasting battle. Cases will come even after the peak is passed. People's lifestyle in terms of travelling and socialising will change," he said.

The AIIMS Director also said only with time the quantum of effect of the lockdown in the country will be known. The cases are increasing with the tally on Thursday at 52,952, including 1,783 deaths according to the Union Health Ministry data. The total tally includes 35,902 active cases while 15,266 patients have recovered from COVID-19.
