Three days after man is robbed, police file FIR



KALYAN: After dragging their feet for nearly three days, an FIR against the five unidentified men who assaulted and robbed Dinesh Nair (30) was registered at the Mahatma Phule police station early on Sunday.

TOI had reported the incident in its November 16 edition. Nair, an event management professional, had said his assailants were travelling in an SUV. The police are now examining footage from CCTV cameras of shops and establishments on road where the incident occurred to trace the SUV's registration number.

On his way back from work, Nair missed the last local train from Parel and took a cab to Kalyan. He got off near Kalyan station and walked to a pay-and-park area. Minutes after he exited the parking lot on his bike and passed Shivaji Chowk, an SUV hit his two-wheeler throwing him on the road.

Five men stepped out from the SUV, hauled him into the vehicle and bashed him up all the way till Bhiwandi before throwing him out in an unconscious state. Later, his relatives took him a hospital and its staffers informed the Bazarpeth police about the incident. While the Bazarpeth police recorded Nair statement, officials did not file an FIR, citing jurisdictional issues. "When we learned about the case our police team immediately recorded the victim's statement and filed the FIR in the case," said Dinesh Katke, senior inspector of Mahatma Phule police station.

Under the law, a citizen can approach any police station with his complaint. It is the duty of the police to file an FIR irrespective of the jurisdiction and later transfer the case to the police station concerned.

BMC says 12 dengue deaths in 2013, but KEM study pegs number at 22 in hospital

BMC says 12 dengue deaths in 2013, but KEM study pegs number at 22 in hospital



MUMBAI: The municipal corporation insists there were only 12 dengue deaths in 2013, but a research paper from its own premier hospital—KEM Hospital, Parel—shows that 22 dengue deaths occurred in the hospital alone in that year.

The public health department was last week criticized by corporators in the civic standing committee meeting for lack of transparency in reporting dengue cases and deaths.

In 2014, the BMC insists that there have been around 700 dengue positive cases and 12 deaths so far.

The corporators' allegation rings true when one considers the data mentioned in the research paper, which was published in the American Journal of Epidemiology and Infectious Disease's September 2014 edition. The study says 420 dengue patients were treated in KEM between January 1 and December 31, 2013, of which 22 died and every third patient was in the 21-30 age group.

But Dr Mangala Gomare of BMC's epidemiology cell said she has not heard about the study and would not be able to comment on it. "The number of deaths could be higher because super specialty hospitals, like KEM, get many patients from outside the city and we don't include them in Mumbai's statistics," she added.

The study was done by doctors of KEM Hospital's preventive social medicine department (PSM) as a debriefing session of sorts—recording the type of treatment given to patients, its outcome and any possible gap in treatment. PSM departments provide inputs that help local governments draw up ways to combat diseases at the community level.

The KEM study provides an overview of the disease's patterns: maximum deaths occurred in September and October 2013 at six each. "There was no treatment gap found in cases of deaths, but 36% of the patients who had died received antimalarial treatment even after being diagnosed with dengue. This may indicate that antimalarial treatment in these 34% patients leads to resistance for the treatment," concluded the study.

Dr Ranendra Shinde, who is one of the co-authors of the study and head of KEM Hospital's PSM department, said, "The study's significance is that it proves that dengue has become the most common vector-borne disease in Mumbai at the moment. In 2012, we had more cases of malaria than dengue. In 2013, both the mosquito-borne infections were equal but, in 2014, it is obvious that dengue is more common."

Such analysis help in noting that any case of fever in Mumbai should first be tested for dengue, especially in September and October. Asked about the disparity between his department's study and public health department's statistics, Dr Shinde said this may be due to lack of uniformity in writing death certificates

Kwality and Gaylord:The First Family of Restaurateurs (Restaurant wallahs)






It all began with ice cream. The British had a settlement in whats now Palika Bazaar and Iqbal Singh Ghai and Purshottam Lal Lamba started making hand churned Ice Cream, sold at the Regal building in Delhi. This was in Circa 1939 . In 1942 an American dropped in and tipped them to keep their business open after the late night show at Regal. This changed their fortune and friendship grew into family and Lamba married Ghai's sister and then what, they got into the restaurant business and started Gaylord. The "G" from Ghai and "L" from Lord. Thank goodness they did not call it Lordgay. But, those were innocent times and gay in the 40's in Delhi was an unknown word (in the current context). Though some historians feel Lord Krishna was termed as Gaylord in the indian context in an innocent way gay meaning happy.


PL Lamba started the Kwality resturant (misspelt as a marketing gimmick that Absolut vodka would follow 4o years later). I think Lamba meant Quality in the Punjabi way. Then came the partition of India and Pakistan and lots of family came and settled in various parts of India, there was a Kwality every where started in Bombay, Calcutta and at my last count there was or had been a Kwality in Mumbai, Kolkatta, Bangalore, Amritsar, Chennai, Nagpur, Chennai, Chandigarh, Patiala,Jamshedpur,Kanpur, Pune, Dehradun, Nagpur, Baroda,Goa, Agra, Mysore, Lucknow, Udaipur, Dalhousie , Vizag and some others I could not trace. All had some family linkage, brother, uncle cousin, son in law, old employee and so on. To the extent my friend and senior blogger Sandip Ghose tells me (he was in HUL, then HLL) that they had to buy the Kwality brand many times over as there was so many other claimants after the deal was done.

Kwality had a simple model make and sell Ice cream (a dream with cream) , and open restaurants with family for families to dine in.When Sunil Lamba came to handle the helm of affairs, his big ticket was at the Asiad Village in 1982. He opened a series of restaurants in the complex, Angeethi (frontier cuisine), Ankur (Indian Cuisine), Chopsticks (chinese cuisine), Tonic the bar amd another American fastfood restaurant, the name I forget. Which has been taken up further by his son Dhruv Lamba starting , Kwality express and Chopsticks express in Malls and Hospitals and Breads and More all over. Kwality also caters at the Delhi Gymkhana Club.
