Importance of Kidney – World Kidney Day


Kidneys are responsible for filtering of waste products through Urine and keeping bones healthy. Ageing process, result of various diseases including Blood Pressure & Diabetes result in Kidney diseases.

The term ‘Chronic Kidney Disease’ (CKD in short) is misunderstood among people. People interpret the world ‘Chronic’ to be severe, whereas, in medical science parlance it means the disease is long term rather than rapid onset of progression or acute disease. More often than not, this unnecessary anxiety lead to the patients thinking that their kidney performance is worse than it is actually.

Significance of MAHA SHIVARATRI


 Maha Shivarathri literally means the great night belonging to Lord Shiva, his most favourite day. There are several interpretations for the origin of Maha Shivarathri.

It is assumed as the day Lord Shiva emerged out in the divine world in Linga roopa (Jyothirlinga).

It is considered as the day Lord Shiva got married with his consort Goddess Parvathi Devi. That’s why we find a custom of performing Kalyanotsavam of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvathi on the day of Maha Shivarathri.

It is associated with the day Lord Shiva (Rudra) drank Halahala (poison) with Vaayu Devara anugraha during the episode of Ksheerasaagara Mathanam.

It is assumed as the day Lord Shiva performed his cosmic dance called Pralaya Thandava.

Whatever may the anecdote for the origin of Maha Shivarathri, it is the most favourite day of Lord Shiva.


As per Hindu Lunar Calendar, every 14th lunar day (Chaturdasi) of the dark fortnight (Krishna Paksha) is known as Maasa Shivarathri.

Sometimes it may fall on the 13th day (Trayodasi) itself.

It is decided based on the presence of Chaturdasi thithi extending beyond midnight on that particular day.

At the same time every 13th or 14th day of the dark fortnight is not considered as Maha Shivarathri.

It is only the 13th /14th day of dark fortnight (Krishna Paksha) occurring in the lunar month of Maagha Maasam associated with Chaturdasi prevailing beyond mid night is reckoned as Maha Shivarathri.

If Chaturdasi is prevailing during Pradosha time as well as at midnight it is considered as more meritorious for Maha Shivaratri.

Maha Shivarathri dedicated to Lord Shiva is celebrated with great religious significance and fervor across the country by all Hindus irrespective of the caste and creed.

Lord Shiva is the most revered Hindu God and one of the three main deities of Hinduism. He has attained perfection in Yoga, Meditation and Spirituality.

As per vedic scriptures it is on the day of Maha Shivaratri that Lord Shiva revealed his form in Linga. This is one of the reasons why devotees perform Rudraabhishekam during midnight of Mahashivaraatri. It is also on this night that Lord Shiva performed the Tandava, the dance of primordial creation, preservation and destruction.

The Most Fascinating of Gods

He is also often portrayed as the supreme ascetic with a passive and composed disposition. Sometimes he is depicted riding a bull called Nandi decked in garlands. Although a very complicated deity, Shiva is one of the most fascinating of Hindu gods.

What causes Cervical Cancer?

Cervical Cancer is caused by Human Papillomavirus bacterium. This ailment is found in Indian women and the second most common cancer found in women worldwide.

Earlier in 2018, Times of India reported that India alone accounts for one fourth of global burden of cervical cancers.

Occurrence of Cervix Cancer in India?

The Cervix is the lower part of the womb also known as Uterine Cervix. The cervix connects the body of the uterus to the Vagina (birth canal). It is about 2-3 cms in length. Cervical Cancer occurs 1 in 53 Indian women during their lifetime compared to 1 in 100 women in developed regions of the world.

Early Diagnosis

Cervical Cancer should be an important part of a woman’s health check-up after the age of 40. There are two types of tests: Pap test and HPV test. The lab test checks the sample for cancer cells or abnormal cells that could be ‘cancer’ later. With the HPV test, the lab checks for HPC infection.

Screening and Prevalence

In order to curb this disease, Primary cervical screening using HPV-DNA testing was recommended by WHO in 2013. This screening is currently being introduced in high-income countries worldwide, and pilot projects are going on in India.

According to a research study, more than 85 percent of patients of cervical cancer were from the age group 40 years and above. The instance of Cervical Cancer in the rest of the world has come down due to advancement in conventional cytology screening programs, have shown a steady decline in the incidence of cervical cancer.

It is important to note here that over the past three decades, cervical cancer and mortality rates have fallen in countries where social and economic status have improved. The reasons are mainly due to the implementation of secondary prevention measures such as like screening, early diagnosis and treatment of pre-cancer and early cancer.
