Updated: January 14 2014 12:11 am Related News Maharashtra’s decision to allow homeopathic doctors to practise allopathy after a year’s training in pharmacology is set to see legal wrangling apart from sparking an ethical debate The Indian Medical Association has gone to court against the decision armed with recent court directives such as last month’s judgment of the Allahabad High Court that rules against such short courses to practise modern medicine and a May 2013 Bombay High Court ruling that stayed a government diktat to amend the schedule of the Maharashtra Medical Council Act to allow allopathic practice by holders of an LCEH (licentiate of the court of examiners in homeopathy) degree Since the cabinet announced its decision there have been allegations about certain homeopathy colleges being owned by political heavyweights who are keen on filling up vacant medical posts What has upset the medical fraternity is that the state didn’t call IMA or Medical Council of India representatives for discussions The government was under pressure to fill vacant posts that doctors are unwilling to take up According to statistics with the state health department 1190 posts of medical officers are vacant Punitive measures have been introduced to check absenteeism and recommendations sent to the Maharashtra Medical Council to suspend the registration of absent doctors It has had an impact with 50 doctors having joined duty within a fortnight of the decision When all posts will be filled however is another story and the government needed to crack the whip It is a situation in which the mainstream MBBS student wants to pursue a postgraduate degree and train as a specialist doctor while the resident doctor from an alternative system jumps at the opportunity to practise modern medicine at an established private hospital As such it has become a trend for young resident doctors from the ayurveda and homeopathy streams to be employed in a big way at private hospitals Labelling themselves “Aam aadmi ke doctors” homeopaths have been waging a 35-year battle that peaked during the winter session of the legislature in Nagpur Maharashtra has 60000 of them and across the state they have been demanding that they be allowed to prescribe allopathy in the interest of patients during emergencies The cabinet has effectively honoured their plea Rather than a one-year training course which gives homoeopaths a backdoor entry into the system of modern medicine what the government might have explored is the inclusion of pharmacology in the homoeopathy course

Shikhar Dhawan got a Test recall after regular opener Murali Vijay was ruled out due to an injury (Source: Kevin D’Souza) Top News All the talk in the lead-up to the Sri Lanka tour has been about the coaching staff of the Indian cricket team but it will be time for the players to make their mark when they face the Board President’s XI in a two-day match starting on Friday India are the top-ranked Test team in the world and though the hosts are in a rebuilding phase skipper Virat Kohli and new coach Ravi Shastri will not like to take any chances “They know their job they are professional cricketers Once they step on the field they take over That is how it should be” said Shastri “My role will be to get the guys in a frame of mind that they get out and express themselves and play a fearless brand of cricket” This is the only practice game before three back-to-back Tests in Galle Colombo and Pallekele and there are a few selection conundrums to be sorted out With first-choice opener Murali Vijay ruled out due to injury one of either Shikhar Dhawan and Abhinav Mukund is likely to partner KL Rahul at the top of the order Mukund was part of the original squad while Dhawan was drafted in as a replacement But the latter has the pedigree in the Test format and has been in a rich form of late in the shorter formats “Abhinav (Mukund) is there he has played lot of domestic cricket Shikhar got a hundred here last time and then he had to miss a couple of games” Kohli said on his arrival in Colombo on Thursday “(Cheteshwar) Pujara opened in the last Test (in Sri Lanka) So guys are looking at these scenarios as opportunities rather than getting under pressure I am sure they are going to be up for it” The team management will also have to decide whether to go with five batsmen or six The latter may allow the returning Rohit Sharma a look-in Kuldeep Yadav’s exploits in his only Test till date (in Dharamsala) and the few limited-overs opportunities he has got mean there is a decision to make on the bowling front as well If Kuldeep is part of a three-pronged spin attack there will be not more than two spots available for pacers with as many as five suitors Sri Lanka went down to Zimbabwe in an ODI series at home before needing a record fourth-innings chase to scrape home in the one-off Test There has been a change at the top as well with Angelo Mathews stepping down and Dinesh Chandimal taking over captaincy duties But Kohli knows that in veteran left-arm spinner Rangana Herath the hosts have a weapon which can make the difference single-handedly “He is such a good bowler If you don’t find a solution to tackle him then he will do what he did at Galle (on the last tour when Herath scripted a dramatic victory) You have to stay a step ahead of the opposition and find ways to counter it If mistakes happen consistently you are not improving as a side” the captain stated Shastri believes Sri Lanka is always a tough nut to crack on their home patch “Their track record playing at home is as good as any other team As the Indian team we are not going to take them lightly we are not going to take things for granted We’d like to be consistent so we’ll keep that No1 position in place We would look to improve in the series Else there is no point playing You have to try and raise the bar whenever you play” For all the latest Sports News
