A Corona story from Italy

A Corona story from Italy

Health, Society
Studying abroad is an illuminating experience, I was fortunate enough to have the firsthand experience of studying in London for 5 years. A career in the UN is my ambition, and so I signed up for this particular program which is affiliated with the United Nations. Due to the unexpected Corona outbreak, education abroad has turned out to be a nightmare. I am an Indian student, pursuing my LLM at United Nations Inter regional Crime and Justice Research Institute in Turin, Italy. At the outset I would like to establish that I am mentally drained, devastated, disheartened and panicking about the Corona outbreak whilst I am still in the Red Zone in North Italy, I am not blaming anyone and I completely understand and realize it is an act of God and everything is out of control, I humbly urge ...

In the words of late legend Justice V.R. Krishna Iyer, ‘reorganization of the worth of infants born and unborn, is the beginning of Juvenile Justice.’ Children are one of the most important chattels to each nation.

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of Child 1989, the Indian Majority Act 1875, the Child Labour (Prohibition and Regulation) Act 1986, the Child Marriage Restraint Act 1926, and Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection) Act 2000, defines the term 'child' and guarantees holistic development on child welfare, striving to protect right to; birth, education, early childhood, enjoyment, development, health, leisure, name, nationality, nutrition, recreation etc., on priority, yet in the present ti

The Importance of Gut Health: Our Body’s Second Brain

Health
Have you ever imagined why doctors say – ‘heal you gut, heal your health’? We all know that our gastrointestinal tract (the GI tract) is responsible for digesting the foods that we eat. But at the same time you would be surprised to know that two-third of our immune system (the body’s defense mechanism) resides in the GI tract. Therefore, you could now clearly make out that our gut or the GI tract is directly responsible for good immunity and brain health. Inside our gut resides millions and trillions of highly talented and extremely hardworking creatures (bacteria, fungi and many other single celled organisms), what we collectively call as microorganisms that are working 24x7 to help us digest our meals, extracting and helping in absorbing many essential nutrients (even those that
