but the ire of “like-minded organisations” as described by an SRKS member chased them there too with the film’s set burned in Kolhapur by miscreants Now Rajasthan’s Social Justice and Empowerment Minister Arun Chaturvedi has announced that the film’s release in the state would first be cleared — by its attackers A screening would be held for the Shri Rashtriya Rajput Karni Sena (SRRKS) — a variant of the SRKS — who with other “knowledgeable members of society” would voice their “objections” This is outrageous The SRKS and SRRKS join a lengthening list of unofficial censors India has dense formal censorship presided over by a Censor Board currently run by Pahlaj Nihalani whose heavy-handedness — cutting kisses in a James Bond movie demanding 89 cuts in Udta Punjab — is the stuff of bitter legend But filmmakers can at least approach the courts if they feel unduly censored; a Bombay High Court decision allowed Udta Punjab to be released with one cut However India’s unofficial censors are apparently out of control Instead of being penalised for their violence — the breaking of mirrors in the historic Chittorgarh Fort for instance apparently to prevent the Padmavati crew from filming a scene showing the queen’s face — the SRKS is being rewarded by the Rajasthan government their vandalism termed “knowledge” an unofficial Ministry of Hurt Sentiments invited to dictate its terms It is high time Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje took a stand The fracas over Padmavati was preceded by participants at both 2015 and 2016’s Jaipur Art Summit being attacked In the Ashok Gehlot administration writer Salman Rushdie wasn’t even permitted to appear on screen at 2012’s Jaipur Literature Festival But by all accounts Raje’s administration has been even more limiting towards art Her party too must clarify its stand The BJP is on a high after electoral victories in this round of assembly elections But its victory is premised largely on the promise of development Such development does not mean simply bijli sadak paani and phones and e-wallets It also means ensuring that creativity grows and freedom of expression as promised by the Constitution prevails Bullies threatening artists and being rewarded for it is the opposite of development For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Kaunain Sheriff M | New Delhi | Published: October 14 2017 3:23 am The study reveals that social psychological and spiritual factors are the major contributors to “total pain” among cancer patients Related News A pilot study conducted by AIIMS to assess the “total pain” in cancer patients has found that non-physical factors contribute to approximately 60% of pain The study reveals that social psychological and spiritual factors are the major contributors to “total pain” among cancer patients The study conducted by Dr B R A Institute Rotary Cancer Hospital AIIMS — to evaluate “total pain” in cancer patients in the Indian context — has found that “physical aspects” contribute to nearly 40% and “non-physical factors like social psychological and spiritual contribute to approximately 60%” “The study was performed on 100 patients The objective was to develop an instrument to assess all components of the ‘total pain’ in cancer patients in India The study reveals that all factors such as physical social spiritual and psychological pain should be considered while treating cancer pain in palliative care patients” said Dr Sushma Bhatnagar Head Department of Onco-Anaesthesia Pain and Palliative care BRAIRCH The World Health Organisation defines palliative care for cancer as an approach that improves “quality of life of patients and their families” through the “prevention and relief of suffering by means of early identification and impeccable assessment and treatment of pain and other problems physical psychosocial and spiritual” Dr Bhatnagar said the study was to understand “total pain” in cancer patients in the Indian context since there is no universally accepted tool to assess pain caused by cancer “In India majority of patients with cancer are diagnosed in advanced stages and they suffer moderate to severe pain The patient might be suffering physical pain due to chemotherapy or radiation At the same time the patient might also be suffering from social pain The differences in culture and support systems may result in different palliative care needs This might be different in the Indian context The patient’s primary concern could be worries about the future of his or her family The patient might be spiritual and might experience loss of faith due to the illness While the treatment is important the focus also has to be on the quality of life of the patient All these factors need to be considered” Dr Bhatnagar said As per WHO estimates globally each year 40 million people are in need of palliative care and only 14% who need palliative care receive it currently “The family does not always understand how a patient is feeling The patient cannot communicate and it results in distress The main aim of palliative care is to communicate to the patient and the family that most of the pain can be controlled and relieved The specialist needs to make the patient understand what causes cancer pain” said Dr Bhatnagar “Also families deal with the emotions that come with a cancer diagnosis and cancer treatment Depression anxiety and fear are common concerns that can be addressed through palliative care Also maintaining a standard of care at home is also important — for which home visits by trained specialists needs to be undertaken” Dr Bhatnagar added For all the latest India News download Indian Express App More Related News
