Only 10 leopards were
sighted in Jhalana and
Amagarh during the
livestock census con-
ducted by the forest de-
partment.
The census was con-
ducted for 24 hours
through the water hole
method.
8 leopards were seen
in Jhalana and only 2 in
Amagarh. However, it is
not the final figure.
The photos of the
teams engaged in count-
ing and camera traps
will be matched and the
authentic data will be
known only after this.
According to the
camera trap pictures so
far, there are about 30 to
35 leopards in Jhalana
and 12 to 15 leopards in
Amagarh.
Since water ponds at
the religious places
around the forest area
remain full, many times
the leopards do not
reach the water point
used for counting.
At the same time, due
to a weak prey base,
there is also a possibil-
ity of leopards migrat-
ing from Jhalana-
Amagarh to other forest
areas.
Leopards from both
these places were seen
many times in the forest
areas like Achrol, Jam-
waramgarh, and Sariska.

Due to a weak prey base, there is also a
possibility of leopards migrating from Jhalana-

Jaipur
The state of Rajasthan is
currently in the grip of an
intense summer heat-
wave, with temperatures
soaring to unprecedented
levels in many areas. The
scorching heat has caused
discomfort and distress
among residents as mer-
cury continues to rise.
On Friday, once again,
the heavens offered no
respite as the sun relent-
lessly beat down on the
parched earth below.
Phalodi recorded the
highest temperature of
the season so far, with
mercury touching a blis-
tering 49 degrees Celsi-
us. The oppressive heat-
wave extended to Sri
Ganganagar at 46.6 de-
grees Celsius and Bikan-
er at 45.8 degrees Celsi-
us. Churu recorded a
temperature of 44.8 de-
grees Celsius, while the
state capital, Jaipur, ex-
perienced a slightly low-
er but still scorching tem-
perature of 43 degrees
Celsius. The extreme
heat has prompted au-
thorities to issue adviso-
ries urging residents to
stay indoors, stay hydrat-
ed, and take precautions
to avoid heat-related ill-
nesses and the situation
remains challenging.

Former CM Ashok Gehlot has called upon current
CM Bhajan Lal Sharma to convene an emergency
meeting regarding the conditions in Rajasthan’s
hospitals amidst the ongoing heatwave.
Gehlot highlighted dual challenges faced by
state’s healthcare facilities, citing deficien-
cies not only in medical services but also
in basic amenities. “Govt hospitals are
grappling with a lack of essential cooling
equipment,” he stated. “In this extreme heat,
there aren’t enough fans, coolers, or ACs.”
Stressing urgency of situation, Gehlot urged to allocate
special funds to improve conditions in hospitals. “An emer-

Residents of several areas in Jaipur South, in-
cluding Jagatpura, Pratap Nagar, and Sanganer,
are experiencing severe discomfort as power
supply disruptions continue amidst the blistering summer
heat. The situation has left many sweating it out, strug-
gling to cope without electricity. The root of the problem
lies with the overloaded feeders originating from the
33 kV Mahal Road Grid Substation (GSS). The power
transformers, unable to handle the excessive load, have
led to power cuts as officials attempt to balance the load.
This has resulted in significant areas, including blocks A,
B, C, and D in Mahal Road, as well as critical locations
like Jeevan Rekha Hospital, Artech Mall, Viva City Mall,
and Gyan Vihar University, being without power.

eyebrows, with tankers
being loaded under pretext
of belonging to another

the pilfered water finds its
way onto Ramgarh Road’s
bustling black market. The
nefarious operation is fa-
cilitated by large capacity of

hotter world is
likely to be a
sicker world.
Earth’s grow-
ing fever has obvious re-
percussions for human
health, like heatwaves that
are hotter than our physi-
ology can tolerate. Hu-
manity’s departure from
the stable climate it inher-
ited will yield surprises,
too, though. Some of
those may be existing dis-
eases appearing in new
places or spreading with
greater ferocity. And
some, experts fear, may be
new diseases entirely.
The mosquito-borne in-
fection malaria killed more
than half a million people
each year during the last
decade. Most of these vic-
tims were children and al-
mostall(95%in2022)were
in Africa. As a source of
disease, infectious mosqui-
toes are at least predictable
in their need for three
things: warm temperatures,
humid air and puddles to
breedin.Sowhatdifference
will global heating make?
PARASITES ARE
ON THE MARCH
“The relationship between
climate and malaria trans-
mission is complex and
has been the subject of in-
tense study for some three
decades,” say water and
health experts Mark Smith
(University of Leeds) and
Chris Thomas (University
of Lincoln). Much of this
research has focused on
sub-Saharan Africa, the
global epicentre of malaria
cases and deaths. Smith
and Thomas combined
temperature and water
movement projections to
produce a continent-wide
analysis of malaria risk.
Their results showed
that the conditions for ma-
laria transmission will be-
come less suitable overall,
especially in west Africa.
But where temperature and
humidity are likely to suit
infectious mosquitoes in
future also happens to be
where lots more people are
expected to live, near riv-
ers like the Nile in Egypt.
“This means the number of
people living in potentially
malaria endemic areas
(suitable for transmission
more than nine months a
year) will increase by 2100
to over a billion,” they say.
Elsewhere, tropical dis-
eases will slip their bonds
as the insects carrying
them survive further from
the equator. This is already
happening in France,
where dengue fever cases
spiked during the hot sum-
mer of 2022. “It seems that
the lowlands of Veneto [in
Italy] are emerging as an
ideal habitat for the Culex
mosquitoes, which can
host and transmit West
Nile virus,” adds Michael
Head, a senior research
fellow in global health at
the University of South-
ampton.
Research suggests that
the global transmission of
mosquito-borne diseases
likemalariaanddenguewill
change, says Mark Booth, a
senior lecturer in parasite
epidemiology at Newcastle
University. That’s as clear a
picture as Booth could con-
jure from modelling more
than 20 tropical diseases in
awarmingworld.“Formost
otherparasites,therewaslit-
tle or no evidence. We sim-
ply don’t know what to ex-
pect,” he says.
Some diseases will bring
fresh torment for the spe-
cies humans farm. Blue-
tongue, a virus transmitted
by midges, is expected to
infect sheep further afield
– in centralAfrica, western
Russia and the US – than
subtropicalAsia andAfrica
where it evolved, Booth
says.And the prognoses for
some diseases afflicting
humans will worsen. UCL
academics Sanjay Sisodi-
ya, a neuroscientist and
Mark Maslin, an earth sys-
tem scientist, found that
climate change is exacer-
bating the symptoms of
certain brain conditions.
“Each of the billions of
neurons in our brain is like
a learning, adapting com-
puter, with many electri-
cally active components,”
they say. “Many of these
components work at a dif-
ferent rate depending on
the ambient temperature,
and are designed to work
together within a narrow
range of temperatures.”
Aspecies that evolved in
Africa, humans are com-
fortable between 20˚C and
26˚C and within 20% and
80% humidity, Sisodiya
and Maslin say. Our brain
is already working close to
the limit of its preferred
temperature range in most
cases, so even small in-
creases matter.
“When those environ-
mental conditions move
rapidly into unaccustomed
ranges, as is happening
with extreme temperatures
and humidity related to cli-
mate change, our brain
struggles to regulate our
temperature and begins to
malfunction.”

ONE PLANET

Clearly, staying healthy
isn’t as simple as regulat-
ing what you eat or how
often you exercise. There
is a lot that is beyond
your immediate control.
“Within less than 3 years,
the WHO has declared 2
public health emergencies
of international concern:
COVID-19 in February
2020 and monkeypox in
July 2022,” says Arindam
Basu, an associate profes-
sor of epidemiology and
environmental health at the
University of Canterbury.
“At the same time, extreme
weather events are being
reported continuously
across the world and are
expected to become more
frequent and intense.
These are not separate
issues.” Basu highlights the
danger of new diseases
emerging, particularly from
pathogens that could jump
between humans and
animals as habitats change
amid global heating.

IN-DEPTH
TECHNOLOGY VS
PERSONALITY
RIGHTS OF STARS
Get rich and spoil
the child: Two cases
penAI’s latest version, GPT-4o, has sparked
controversy by allegedly mimicking Scarlett
Johansson’s voice without her consent. This
incident raises critical questions about the infringe-
ment of celebrities’ personality rights in the digital
age. Johansson, known for her distinctive voice, rep-
resents many public figures whose likeness and vocal
characteristics are integral to their brand and liveli-
hood. Unauthorized use of such personal attributes
byAI technologies can lead to significant ethical and
legal challenges. In India, Amitabh Bachchan and
Anil Kapoor won legal cases against infringement of
their celebrity traits.
The crux of the issue lies in the balance between
technological innovation and the protection of indi-
vidual rights. While AI advancements like GPT-4o
offer incredible potential, they must be developed
and deployed with stringent safeguards to prevent
misuse. The controversy underscores the urgent need
for comprehensive regulations that address the nu-
ances of AI’s impact on personal rights. Protecting
celebrities from unauthorized exploitation by AI is
essential to maintaining their control over their pub-
lic personas.
O
ome people possess great wealth but lack
control over their children, who believe
their father’s riches and influential connec-
tions will shield them from harm and the reach of
the law. This is best illustrated by two teenagers -
one in Pune and the other in Kanpur. In Pune’s
high-profile Porsche crash, it is alleged that al-
though the boy was seen drinking at a bar, his blood
test was delayed. Initially, the juvenile justice
board (JJB) handed down the absurd punishment
of writing a 300-word essay despite being asked by
the police to treat the 17-year-old as an adult. It was
forced to reverse its
decision under pub-
lic pressure.
However, in Pune
the boy was immedi-
ately arrested. Po-
lice complicity led
to the closure of a
case in which the
teenager son of a
leading Kanpur doc-
tor ran over two near
the Ganga barrage in
October 2023. After
no action was taken
and his parents al-
legedly remaining
unconcerned, the minor chose to be at the wheel
again in March 2024 and rammed into two more
persons. This time the accident occurred in the
Barra area of Kanpur. There was no public outrage
or media coverage over the October accident which
made it convenient for the police to close the case.
After the outcry over the Pune accident, the Kan-
pur police woke up and reopened the October ac-
cident case and the minor was sent to juvenile home
only on Wednesday. Parental indulgence and police
complicity only create spoilt brats.

INDIA’S GROWTH PROJECTIONS
In next 10 years we’ll be be US$ 10tn economy: Doval
ANI
New Delhi
ational Security
Advisor (NSA)
Ajit Doval on
Friday emphasised the
necessity of strong bor-
der security in light of
India’s projected growth
to a USD 10 trillion
economy and becoming
the world’s third-largest
economy within the next
decade, with a particular
focus on technological
advancements.
With projections plac-
ing India’s economic
growth in the next decade
as the world’s top third
economy, Doval high-
lighted the essential role
of technological ad-
vancements in bolstering
national security.
“In the next 10 years,
we will be a USD 10 tril-
lion economy, a major
achievement. We will
achieve the position of
the world’s third-largest
economy. It will also
have the world’s largest
workforce...It will also
be a major global surpris-
ing hub...,” Doval said
while speaking at the
21st BSF Investiture Cer-
emony and delivering
Rustamji Memorial Lec-
ture in Delhi.
Doval emphasized that
a robust border infra-
structure is vital for sus-
taining and protecting
India’s expanding eco-
nomic interests.
He pointed out that as
India scales new eco-
nomic heights, the inte-
gration of cutting-edge
technology in security
frameworks will be criti-
cal to mitigate emerging
threats and challenges.
Doval said we are liv-
ing in a changing time
and India is changing
very fast.
The NSA said that In-
dia’s economic progress
would be much faster if
we had a more secure
border.
Enforcing the future,
Doval said the responsi-
bility is on the border se-
curity force.

nada film ‘Makeup’ in
2002, has finally got jus-
tice. The accused of mur-
der of Laila Khan, who
became an overnight sen-
sation due to her bold
scene with Rajesh Khan-
na, has been sentenced to
death. After 13 years, the
court has pronounced its
verdict in the murder
case. The culprit Parvez
Tak is the step father of
deceased Laila Khan. In
February 2011, Laila and
five other members of
her family were brutally
murdered at their farm-
house in Igatpuri and
their bodies were burred
there. Mumbai Sessions
Court said that this case
is the rarest of the rare
cases on Friday.
The incident happened
in February 2011, when
the culprit murdered
Laila, her mother and
four brothers and sisters.
After an investigation by
the police, it became
clear that Tak had com-
mitted the murder. Ac-
cording to the Mumbai
police, Laila along with
her family had gone to
the Igatpuri farmhouse
for a holiday.

City Firsts sheds light on the inspiring journeys of
emerging models Suhana Tomar and Sudipta Das,
showcasing their determination, mutual support
and significant strides in the fashion industry!
n the dynamic realm of
fashion, Suhana Tomar
and Sudipta Das shine
as rising stars, each
carving her own path
while inspiring one an-
other to reach greater heights. Sudipta
Das, hailing originally from Siliguri,
West Bengal and later relocating to
Jaipur, has always been enchanted by the
world of fashion and modeling. Her jour-
ney from a young girl fascinated by the
allure of the runway to an emerging tal-
ent in the industry is marked by creativ-
ity and determination. Currently pursu-
ing an MBAin Finance atAmity Univer-
sity, Noida, Sudipta deftly balances her
academic aspirations with her modeling
career. Her perspective on fashion as a
means of self-expression and visual sto-
rytelling drives her relentless passion.
Living with her mother, Sudipta credits
her unwavering support as a cornerstone
of her success. Her friendships, particu-
larly with fellow models like Suhana, are
another vital source of motivation and
constructive feedback, fostering a com-
petitive yet nurturing environment.
On the other hand, Suhana Tomar, a
spirited young model from Jaipur, has
been making significant strides in the
industry. Despite her schooling commit-
ments at Sanskar School Jaipur, Suhana’s
dedication to modeling remains unwa-
vering. Her mantra, “ask yourself, be-
lieve in yourself,” underscores her jour-
ney, which began at the tender age of
five. Overcoming initial resistance from
her conservative family, Suhana’s pas-
sion and determination eventually won
their support. At 15, she began her seri-
ous pursuit of modeling, facing auditions
and the industry’s challenges head-on.
Her big break came with her selection as
a finalist in Elite Miss Rajasthan, under
the mentorship of Founder  Director,
Gaurav Gaur, a milestone that reinforced
her belief in the power of hard work and
determination.
Together, Suhana and Sudipta form a
dynamic duo, constantly pushing each
other to excel. Their friendship is built

structive criticism, ensuring they stay
focused and motivated. As they navigate
their careers, they are not only building
their individual brands but also contrib-
uting to the growth and diversity of the
fashion industry. Looking ahead, both
Suhana and Sudipta envision multifac-
eted careers, with Suhana aspiring to
make a mark in both modeling and act-
ing, and Sudipta aiming to blend her
fashion prowess with a potential future
in marketing or entrepreneurship. Their
shared journey of ambition, support, and
friendship promises to leave a lasting
impact on the fashion world, demonstrat-
ing that true success is often a collabo-
rative effort.

JAIPUR, SATURDAY | MAY 25, 2024
n a remarkable
feat, a 1-year-7-
month-old girl
Arohi Magan
Bissa, became
the youngest
person ever to reach the Everest
Base Camp (EBC) on 23 May
2024. Incidentally, the date con-
curred exactly 40 years ago, when
Bachendri Pal became the first
Indian woman to reach the sum-
mit of Mount Everest.
Today both baby Arohi, brav-
ing the weather and low oxygen
levels, and Padma Bhushan,
Bachendri Pal are in the moun-
tains together. Arohi’s family
paying an apt tribute to her grand-
father the late mountaineer
Magan Bissa, and Bachendri Pal
celebrating her birthday and 40
years of Everest summit!
Indisputably, you can say ad-
venture runs in Arohi Magan
Bissa’s genes. What she inherited
in her lineage was the spirit of her
late granddad, a highly decorated
mountaineer, Bissa who was part
of the 1984 expedition in
which Bachendri Pal be-
came the first Indian
woman to scale
Mount Ever-
est and the
wings
of her grand-mother Dr Sushma,
an expert parasailer and the only
parasailing controller in the world
who holds the record for conduct-
ing 16,000 launches in 11 days in
Nagapattinam.
Arohi trekked for 17 days
straight from Jhiri (Shivalay) to
EBC, covering approximately
135 km, piggybacked on her
59-year-old grandmother, Dr. Su-
shma Bissa enjoying the entire
experience.
“Arohi’s remarkable achieve-
ment at such a young age high-
lights the spirit of adventure and
exploration that runs in the fam-
ily. Her journey not only cele-
brates the legacy of her grandfa-
ther but also inspires others to
push their boundaries,” said Ro-
hitashwa Bissa, her father. Aro-
hi’s father spent most of his life
in Mountains for different inter-
national expedition and rescue
operation, so they decided to
leave his last remains and Ever-
est Base Camp.
The successful trek to the Ev-
erest base camp is a testament to
the dedication and resilience of
the entire team, who braved the
challenging terrain and weather
conditions to ensure Arohi’s
safety and well-being
throughout the jour-
ney, he said.
When asked
just how
difficult
was it to acclimatize a child at the
EBC, Rohitashwa said, “I was
born in a family that loves adven-
ture. Arohi responded very well
to the acclimatization. We regu-
larly monitored Arohi’s body
temperature, heart rate, and blood
oxygen saturation, along with a
strict diet with lots of fluid intake
(to keep the blood thin). For
clothing, we opted for Goose
Down feather jackets and pants
with multiple layers to keep her
warm.”
The young adventurer was ac-
companied by her parents, Ana-
mika Vyas Bissa and Er. Roh-
itashwa Bissa, her uncle Ojasvi
Bissa, and India’s first lady to
reach the Everest Summit,
Bachendri Pal. The team was
commemorating the Indian Ever-
est Expedition of 1984, in which
Arohi’s late grandfather, leg-
endary Indian mountaineer
Magan Bissa from Bi-
kaner, Rajasthan,
was a member.
 Rohi’s late grandfather Magan was a highly decorated
mountaineer, who was part of the 1984 expedition in
which Bachendri Pal became the first Indian woman
to scale Mount Everest. Besides he was President of
Rajasthan Adventure Foundation and World-renowned
parasailing controller. During the 1984 expedition,
Magan Bissa daringly rescued two Bulgarian climbers
above South Col, at an altitude of over 8,000 meters on
Mount Everest. He was part of four expeditions to the
Himalayas but was hit by an avalanche during an expe-
dition to Mount Everest in 2009, which he survived.
 ROB (Rohitashwa Bissa) Arohi’s father started para-
sailing at age of just 12 months and started practicing
paragliding, at the age of just and started trekking at the
age of 4 (reached Tapovan).

The IO Handbook includes a comparative description of the police investiga- tion process in the con- text of old and new laws, referenced provisions of the Rajasthan Police Act & Regulations, and ma- terial useful in forensic research, as well as logi- cal flow charts & bro- chures for reference and discussion by investiga- tion officers. Sahoo said that the training programmes go- ing on in the state regard- ing ‘New Criminal Laws-2023’ should be completed within the stipulated timeline. First India Bureau Jaipur Jaipur police have ar- rested four individuals, including three awarded criminals, for their in- volvement in a series of robberies. These culprits, who posed as CBI & po- lice officers, travelled a journey of 300 km to ex- ecute their crimes in Jaipur. DCP (North) Rashi Dogra Dudi dis- closed, “The robbery sus- pects, namely Sheikh Mukhtar Umar alias Mukhtar Hasan, Mohd Ali alias Sabir Hasan, and Zulfikar alias Javed, residents of Iranian Basti Aman Colony Nishad- pura, Bhopal, along with their taxi driver Jitendra Kumar from Faridabad, Haryana, were appre- hended.” Each of the 5 culprits has been offered a reward of Rs 25,000.

First India Photojournalist SANTOSH SHARMA captured a leopard taking a stroll in Jhalana Leopard Reserve in Jaipur on Friday. So far, about 12,000 police officers and employees in the state have been provided training and by the end of June, the training of all the police officers will be completed, said Director General of Police (DGP) Sahoo D Nirmal Tiwari Jaipur Only 10 leopards were sighted in Jhalana and Amagarh during the livestock census con- ducted by the forest de- partment. The census was con- ducted for 24 hours through the water hole method. 8 leopards were seen in Jhalana and only 2 in Amagarh. However, it is not the final figure. The photos of the teams engaged in count- ing and camera traps will be matched and the authentic data will be known only after this. According to the camera trap pictures so far, there are about 30 to 35 leopards in Jhalana and 12 to 15 leopards in Amagarh. Since water ponds at the religious places around the forest area remain full, many times the leopards do not reach the water point used for counting. At the same time, due to a weak prey base, there is also a possibil- ity of leopards migrat- ing from Jhalana- Amagarh to other forest areas. Leopards from both these places were seen many times in the forest areas like Achrol, Jam- waramgarh, and Sariska. Wildlife census: Only 10 leopards sighted in Jhalana, Amagarh Due to a weak prey base, there is also a possibility of leopards migrating from Jhalana- Amagarh to other forest areas.

RAJREELSUNDERSWELTERINGHEATWAVE First India BUreau Jaipur The state of Rajasthan is currently in the grip of an intense summer heat- wave, with temperatures soaring to unprecedented levels in many areas. The scorching heat has caused discomfort and distress among residents as mer- cury continues to rise. On Friday, once again, the heavens offered no respite as the sun relent- lessly beat down on the parched earth below. Phalodi recorded the highest temperature of the season so far, with mercury touching a blis- tering 49 degrees Celsi- us. The oppressive heat- wave extended to Sri Ganganagar at 46.6 de- grees Celsius and Bikan- er at 45.8 degrees Celsi- us. Churu recorded a temperature of 44.8 de- grees Celsius, while the state capital, Jaipur, ex- perienced a slightly low- er but still scorching tem- perature of 43 degrees Celsius. The extreme heat has prompted au- thorities to issue adviso- ries urging residents to stay indoors, stay hydrat- ed, and take precautions to avoid heat-related ill- nesses and the situation remains challenging.

ACSDIRECTSOFFICIALSTOENSUREARRANGEMENTSTOTACKLEHEATWAVE ACS of Medical Health Department Shubhra Singh, during a review meeting on seasonal diseases and heatwave manage- ment through video conference at Swasthya Bhawan on Friday, said that Rajasthan is in the red alert category and the Meteorological Depart- ment has also warned of extreme heatwave in the coming time. She said that the medical manage- ment of the state should ensure arrangements for prevention and treatment of heatwave. Singh said that coolers, fans, ACs, water coolers, etc. should be functional in hospitals. “All arrangements should be in place in three days, otherwise strict action will be taken against negli- gent officers and person- nel. ingh said that there should be no shortage in medical institutions. She directed the Joint Director Zone to appoint nodal officers for monitoring arrangements related to seasonal diseases and heatwaves.

Gehlot highlighted dual challenges faced by state’s healthcare facilities, citing deficien- cies not only in medical services but also in basic amenities. “Govt hospitals are grappling with a lack of essential cooling equipment,” he stated. “In this extreme heat, there aren’t enough fans, coolers, or ACs.” Stressing urgency of situation, Gehlot urged to allocate special funds to improve conditions in hospitals. “An emer- gency meeting should be called,” he said. Naresh Sharma Residents of several areas in Jaipur South, in- cluding Jagatpura, Pratap Nagar, and Sanganer, are experiencing severe discomfort as power supply disruptions continue amidst the blistering summer heat. The situation has left many sweating it out, strug- gling to cope without electricity. The root of the problem lies with the overloaded feeders originating from the 33 kV Mahal Road Grid Substation (GSS). The power transformers, unable to handle the excessive load, have led to power cuts as officials attempt to balance the load. This has resulted in significant areas, including blocks A, B, C, and D in Mahal Road, as well as critical locations like Jeevan Rekha Hospital, Artech Mall, Viva City Mall, and Gyan Vihar University, being without power. Jaipur District Collector Prakash Rajpurohit held a meeting of subdivision level officers at Chomu to discuss electricity water problems here. Instructions were given to PHED of- ficials for proper arrange- ment. In Jaisalmer, district collector Pratap Singh Nathawat held a surprise inspection of Jaisalmer’s electricity dept. In Dungar- pur, district collector Ankit Kumar Singh held a meet- ing to review the situation of water, electricity and seasonal diseases. Brahmupuri area is embroiled in a sig- nificant water supply scandal, with daily unauthor- ized filling of 10-12 tankers from govt sources The clan- destine activities have raised eyebrows, with tankers being loaded under pretext of belonging to another administrative division, while the pilfered water finds its way onto Ramgarh Road’s bustling black market. The nefarious operation is fa- cilitated by large capacity of each tanker. Consequently, illicit trade amounts to nearly 4 lakh liters of water being siphoned off and sold daily. Keeping in mind se- vere heat conditions, the state government has instructed the Animal Husbandry and Cowshed Dept to ensure adequate availability of clean drinking water for cattle in the cow shelters and that no cattle should die due to heat-relat- ed diseases. Principal Secre- tary, Animal Husbandry and Cowshed Vikas Sitaram Bhale said that there will be no shortage of drinking water in the gaushalas in districts. Instructions have been given to the Collectors to ensure uninterrupted supply of clean drinking water for the cattle. IAS Tina Dabi has been given posting after being on leave for 8 months. 2016 IAS of- ficer Tina Dabi was on child care leave since Sept 15. DoP has now posted her as Commissioner, EGS. She may be given a significant posting after end of MCC. As temperatures soar across several cities, the govt has swung into action to com- bat heatwave. Disaster Mgmt Min Dr Kirodi Lal Meena highlighted the severity of situation and steps being taken to mitigate its impact. He outlined the guidelines is- sued to help people protect themselves from the heat. “People are advised to stay indoors,”, he said.

  • 4. TOP TWEETS SPIRITUAL SPEAK Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. BIBLE A proud moment, particularly for our Kendriya Vidyalaya family. Congratulate Preetismita on her achievement at the IWF World Youth Championships and wish her the best. May she keep shining and bringing more glory to Odisha and India. Dharmendra Pradhan (मोोदीी काा परि�वाार) @ dpradhanbjp The news of the road accident in Ambala, Haryana is extremely sad. I express my deepest condolences to those who lost their loved ones in this accident. I pray to God for the peace of the departed souls and speedy recovery of the injured. Piyush Goyal (मोोदीी काा परि�वाार) @PiyushGoyal hotter world is likely to be a sicker world. Earth’s grow- ing fever has obvious re- percussions for human health, like heatwaves that are hotter than our physi- ology can tolerate. Hu- manity’s departure from the stable climate it inher- ited will yield surprises, too, though. Some of those may be existing dis- eases appearing in new places or spreading with greater ferocity. And some, experts fear, may be new diseases entirely. The mosquito-borne in- fection malaria killed more than half a million people each year during the last decade. Most of these vic- tims were children and al- mostall(95%in2022)were in Africa. As a source of disease, infectious mosqui- toes are at least predictable in their need for three things: warm temperatures, humid air and puddles to breedin.Sowhatdifference will global heating make? PARASITES ARE ON THE MARCH “The relationship between climate and malaria trans- mission is complex and has been the subject of in- tense study for some three decades,” say water and health experts Mark Smith (University of Leeds) and Chris Thomas (University of Lincoln). Much of this research has focused on sub-Saharan Africa, the global epicentre of malaria cases and deaths. Smith and Thomas combined temperature and water movement projections to produce a continent-wide analysis of malaria risk. Their results showed that the conditions for ma- laria transmission will be- come less suitable overall, especially in west Africa. But where temperature and humidity are likely to suit infectious mosquitoes in future also happens to be where lots more people are expected to live, near riv- ers like the Nile in Egypt. “This means the number of people living in potentially malaria endemic areas (suitable for transmission more than nine months a year) will increase by 2100 to over a billion,” they say. Elsewhere, tropical dis- eases will slip their bonds as the insects carrying them survive further from the equator. This is already happening in France, where dengue fever cases spiked during the hot sum- mer of 2022. “It seems that the lowlands of Veneto [in Italy] are emerging as an ideal habitat for the Culex mosquitoes, which can host and transmit West Nile virus,” adds Michael Head, a senior research fellow in global health at the University of South- ampton. Research suggests that the global transmission of mosquito-borne diseases likemalariaanddenguewill change, says Mark Booth, a senior lecturer in parasite epidemiology at Newcastle University. That’s as clear a picture as Booth could con- jure from modelling more than 20 tropical diseases in awarmingworld.“Formost otherparasites,therewaslit- tle or no evidence. We sim- ply don’t know what to ex- pect,” he says. Some diseases will bring fresh torment for the spe- cies humans farm. Blue- tongue, a virus transmitted by midges, is expected to infect sheep further afield – in centralAfrica, western Russia and the US – than subtropicalAsia andAfrica where it evolved, Booth says.And the prognoses for some diseases afflicting humans will worsen. UCL academics Sanjay Sisodi- ya, a neuroscientist and Mark Maslin, an earth sys- tem scientist, found that climate change is exacer- bating the symptoms of certain brain conditions. “Each of the billions of neurons in our brain is like a learning, adapting com- puter, with many electri- cally active components,” they say. “Many of these components work at a dif- ferent rate depending on the ambient temperature, and are designed to work together within a narrow range of temperatures.” Aspecies that evolved in Africa, humans are com- fortable between 20˚C and 26˚C and within 20% and 80% humidity, Sisodiya and Maslin say. Our brain is already working close to the limit of its preferred temperature range in most cases, so even small in- creases matter. “When those environ- mental conditions move rapidly into unaccustomed ranges, as is happening with extreme temperatures and humidity related to cli- mate change, our brain struggles to regulate our temperature and begins to malfunction.” SOURCE: THE CONVERSATION ONE PLANET ONE HEALTH Clearly, staying healthy isn’t as simple as regulat- ing what you eat or how often you exercise. There is a lot that is beyond your immediate control. “Within less than 3 years, the WHO has declared 2 public health emergencies of international concern: COVID-19 in February 2020 and monkeypox in July 2022,” says Arindam Basu, an associate profes- sor of epidemiology and environmental health at the University of Canterbury. “At the same time, extreme weather events are being reported continuously across the world and are expected to become more frequent and intense. These are not separate issues.” Basu highlights the danger of new diseases emerging, particularly from pathogens that could jump between humans and animals as habitats change amid global heating. IFEARTHGETSSICK, SODOYOU Research suggests that the global transmission of mosquito-borne diseases like malaria and dengue will change, says Mark Booth, a senior lecturer in parasite epidemiology at Newcastle University. That’s as clear a picture as Booth could conjure from modelling more than 20 tropical diseases in a warming world IN-DEPTH TECHNOLOGY VS PERSONALITY RIGHTS OF STARS Get rich and spoil the child: Two cases penAI’s latest version, GPT-4o, has sparked controversy by allegedly mimicking Scarlett Johansson’s voice without her consent. This incident raises critical questions about the infringe- ment of celebrities’ personality rights in the digital age. Johansson, known for her distinctive voice, rep- resents many public figures whose likeness and vocal characteristics are integral to their brand and liveli- hood. Unauthorized use of such personal attributes byAI technologies can lead to significant ethical and legal challenges. In India, Amitabh Bachchan and Anil Kapoor won legal cases against infringement of their celebrity traits. The crux of the issue lies in the balance between technological innovation and the protection of indi- vidual rights. While AI advancements like GPT-4o offer incredible potential, they must be developed and deployed with stringent safeguards to prevent misuse. The controversy underscores the urgent need for comprehensive regulations that address the nu- ances of AI’s impact on personal rights. Protecting celebrities from unauthorized exploitation by AI is essential to maintaining their control over their pub- lic personas. O ome people possess great wealth but lack control over their children, who believe their father’s riches and influential connec- tions will shield them from harm and the reach of the law. This is best illustrated by two teenagers - one in Pune and the other in Kanpur. In Pune’s high-profile Porsche crash, it is alleged that al- though the boy was seen drinking at a bar, his blood test was delayed. Initially, the juvenile justice board (JJB) handed down the absurd punishment of writing a 300-word essay despite being asked by the police to treat the 17-year-old as an adult. It was forced to reverse its decision under pub- lic pressure. However, in Pune the boy was immedi- ately arrested. Po- lice complicity led to the closure of a case in which the teenager son of a leading Kanpur doc- tor ran over two near the Ganga barrage in October 2023. After no action was taken and his parents al- legedly remaining unconcerned, the minor chose to be at the wheel again in March 2024 and rammed into two more persons. This time the accident occurred in the Barra area of Kanpur. There was no public outrage or media coverage over the October accident which made it convenient for the police to close the case. After the outcry over the Pune accident, the Kan- pur police woke up and reopened the October ac- cident case and the minor was sent to juvenile home only on Wednesday. Parental indulgence and police complicity only create spoilt brats. S This is best illustrated by two teenagers - one in Pune and the other in Kanpur.

INDIA’S GROWTH PROJECTIONS In next 10 years we’ll be be US$ 10tn economy: Doval ANI New Delhi ational Security Advisor (NSA) Ajit Doval on Friday emphasised the necessity of strong bor- der security in light of India’s projected growth to a USD 10 trillion economy and becoming the world’s third-largest economy within the next decade, with a particular focus on technological advancements. With projections plac- ing India’s economic growth in the next decade as the world’s top third economy, Doval high- lighted the essential role of technological ad- vancements in bolstering national security. “In the next 10 years, we will be a USD 10 tril- lion economy, a major achievement. We will achieve the position of the world’s third-largest economy. It will also have the world’s largest workforce...It will also be a major global surpris- ing hub...,” Doval said while speaking at the 21st BSF Investiture Cer- emony and delivering Rustamji Memorial Lec- ture in Delhi. Doval emphasized that a robust border infra- structure is vital for sus- taining and protecting India’s expanding eco- nomic interests. He pointed out that as India scales new eco- nomic heights, the inte- gration of cutting-edge technology in security frameworks will be criti- cal to mitigate emerging threats and challenges. Doval said we are liv- ing in a changing time and India is changing very fast. The NSA said that In- dia’s economic progress would be much faster if we had a more secure border. Enforcing the future, Doval said the responsi- bility is on the border se- curity force.

The commit- tee formed for this bid included Dr. Anchal Sharma, Dr. Jagdish Modi, and Jeevan Kankaria of Sawai Mansingh Hospital as experts. Additionally, officials of the Ra- jasthan Medical Ser- vice Corporation were also included in the bid committee.

Sudipta Das, hailing originally from Siliguri, West Bengal and later relocating to Jaipur, has always been enchanted by the world of fashion and modeling. Her jour- ney from a young girl fascinated by the allure of the runway to an emerging tal- ent in the industry is marked by creativ- ity and determination. Currently pursu- ing an MBAin Finance atAmity Univer- sity, Noida, Sudipta deftly balances her academic aspirations with her modeling career. Her perspective on fashion as a means of self-expression and visual sto- rytelling drives her relentless passion. Living with her mother, Sudipta credits her unwavering support as a cornerstone of her success. Her friendships, particu- larly with fellow models like Suhana, are another vital source of motivation and constructive feedback, fostering a com- petitive yet nurturing environment. On the other hand, Suhana Tomar, a spirited young model from Jaipur, has been making significant strides in the industry. Despite her schooling commit- ments at Sanskar School Jaipur, Suhana’s dedication to modeling remains unwa- vering. Her mantra, “ask yourself, be- lieve in yourself,” underscores her jour- ney, which began at the tender age of five. Overcoming initial resistance from her conservative family, Suhana’s pas- sion and determination eventually won their support. At 15, she began her seri- ous pursuit of modeling, facing auditions and the industry’s challenges head-on. Her big break came with her selection as a finalist in Elite Miss Rajasthan, under the mentorship of Founder Director, Gaurav Gaur, a milestone that reinforced her belief in the power of hard work and determination.

Their friendship is built on mutual trust, goal-setting, and con- structive criticism, ensuring they stay focused and motivated. As they navigate their careers, they are not only building their individual brands but also contrib- uting to the growth and diversity of the fashion industry. Looking ahead, both Suhana and Sudipta envision multifac- eted careers, with Suhana aspiring to make a mark in both modeling and act- ing, and Sudipta aiming to blend her fashion prowess with a potential future in marketing or entrepreneurship.

Incidentally, the date con- curred exactly 40 years ago, when Bachendri Pal became the first Indian woman to reach the sum- mit of Mount Everest. Today both baby Arohi, brav- ing the weather and low oxygen levels, and Padma Bhushan, Bachendri Pal are in the moun- tains together. Arohi’s family paying an apt tribute to her grand- father the late mountaineer Magan Bissa, and Bachendri Pal celebrating her birthday and 40 years of Everest summit! Indisputably, you can say ad- venture runs in Arohi Magan Bissa’s genes. What she inherited in her lineage was the spirit of her late granddad, a highly decorated mountaineer, Bissa who was part of the 1984 expedition in which Bachendri Pal be- came the first Indian woman to scale Mount Ever- est and the wings of her grand-mother Dr Sushma, an expert parasailer and the only parasailing controller in the world who holds the record for conduct- ing 16,000 launches in 11 days in Nagapattinam. Arohi trekked for 17 days straight from Jhiri (Shivalay) to EBC, covering approximately 135 km, piggybacked on her 59-year-old grandmother, Dr. Su- shma Bissa enjoying the entire experience. “Arohi’s remarkable achieve- ment at such a young age high- lights the spirit of adventure and exploration that runs in the fam- ily. Her journey not only cele- brates the legacy of her grandfa- ther but also inspires others to push their boundaries,” said Ro- hitashwa Bissa, her father. Aro- hi’s father spent most of his life in Mountains for different inter- national expedition and rescue operation, so they decided to leave his last remains and Ever- est Base Camp. The successful trek to the Ev- erest base camp is a testament to the dedication and resilience of the entire team, who braved the challenging terrain and weather conditions to ensure Arohi’s safety and well-being throughout the jour- ney, he said. When asked just how difficult was it to acclimatize a child at the EBC, Rohitashwa said, “I was born in a family that loves adven- ture. Arohi responded very well to the acclimatization. We regu- larly monitored Arohi’s body temperature, heart rate, and blood oxygen saturation, along with a strict diet with lots of fluid intake (to keep the blood thin). For clothing, we opted for Goose Down feather jackets and pants with multiple layers to keep her warm.” The young adventurer was ac- companied by her parents, Ana- mika Vyas Bissa and Er. Roh- itashwa Bissa, her uncle Ojasvi Bissa, and India’s first lady to reach the Everest Summit, Bachendri Pal. The team was commemorating the Indian Ever- est Expedition of 1984, in which Arohi’s late grandfather, leg- endary Indian mountaineer Magan Bissa from Bi- kaner, Rajasthan, was a member.  Rohi’s late grandfather Magan was a highly decorated mountaineer, who was part of the 1984 expedition in which Bachendri Pal became the first Indian woman to scale Mount Everest. Besides he was President of Rajasthan Adventure Foundation and World-renowned parasailing controller. During the 1984 expedition, Magan Bissa daringly rescued two Bulgarian climbers above South Col, at an altitude of over 8,000 meters on Mount Everest.
