gender are lagging far behind as far as health and fitness levels are concerned Related News School children in India irrespective of age group or gender are lagging far behind as far as health and fitness levels are concerned revealed The EduSports’ 5th Annual School Health and Fitness Study 2014 The study that covered 115559 children in the age group between 7 to 17 years in 287 schools across 85 cities from 23 states involved assessment of key health and physical fitness parameters like anaerobic capacity flexibility lower and upper body strength and BMI among others In a comparative study between boys and girls it was found that 65% of girls have healthier BMI scores compared to 59% of boys However girls scored lower than boys in other fitness parameters (anaerobic capacity flexibility upper body strength and abdominal strength) which indicates that they are still short on overall fitness Fast Facts |Create infographics Geographically children in all five regions of the country were deemed more or less equally unfit with unhealthy BMI scores of 37% (Central) 54% (East) 37% (North) 38% (South) and 36% (West) but children from non-metros score highter than metros Children in non-metros demonstrated better flexibility (75% in non-metros and 70% in metros) had good upper body strength (64% in non-metros and 61% in metros) and a marginal overall BMI score (61% in non-metros and 60% in metros) Experts are of the opinion that due to modernisation and urban lifestyles there is lesser time at disposal for sports and outdoor activities In the current scenario it is imperative that schools provide the best environment for encouraging sports and other outdoor activities apart from education The road ahead Over 81000 children across 287 schools who underwent 3+ classes per week as against 2 or less classes per week of physical education over a period of 9 months showed a marginal improvement of 1% in BMI levels However there was a significant improvement (4%)in case of lower body strength and (5%) in case of upper body strength A sub-group of over 27918 kids children from 116 schools in 34 cities across India went through a structured sports programme over 24 months and experienced 2-4 sessions of structured sports/physical activity per week Students showed significant improvement across fitness parameters including anaerobic capacity flexibility upper body strength and abdominal strength Speaking on the 5th edition of this landmark study Saumil Majmudar CEO & Co-founder of EduSports emphasised the need for schools to increase play hours for children “The lack of health and fitness among such a large number of children yet again proves that physical activity/sports in schools should be viewed as an important part of the curriculum for the overall development of a child There is a need for greater awareness about the importance of play and there must be more time allotted for the same In the next year we hope to see far better results” For all

Sasikumar) Top News I am deeply pained to read that the courts have had to interfere in interpreting to the world the true spirit of my religion Islam The judgment of the Bombay High Court upholding Muslim women’s right to enter the Haji Ali Dargah in Mumbai is a slap in the face of us Muslims for not having spoken up for a religion which has stood for the rights of women since the day it was revealed 1400 years ago And accolades to the Bharatiya Muslim Mahila Andolan (BMMA) for speaking up During the life of the Prophet women freely entered the first mosque of Islam in Medina They not only entered but asked the Prophet questions to clear their doubts about the revelations The Hadith about the Prophet’s wife Umm Salama is well-known She asked him “O Prophet of Allah why is it that all revelations of the Quran are concerned with men What about us women” It was then that surah 4 of the Quran was revealed which is called Surah Al Nisa meaning “The Women” This Hadith proves two points One women had the freedom to enter the mosque and hold discussions with the Prophet Two their legitimate concern merited an entire surah which is the second longest surah as well as the most comprehensive explication of women’s rights enshrined in any scripture of the world Instead of propagating to the world the content of this surah we Muslims are hell bent on projecting Islam in the exact opposite light Will we ever realise the harm we are doing to Islam by constantly falling in the trap of our own making Sadly we cannot see beyond the patriarchal construct in which we are conditioned In denying rights to Muslim women the male ego may exult for a while but it kills the spirit of Islam Gender in Islam becomes reduced to debates about dargah entrance and burkinis In these worst of times when our one-point agenda should be to show Islam’s gendered face to the world we are hopelessly entangled in the most inconsequential matters The Masjid-e-Nabavi in Medina was built by the Prophet as a humble mud structure for the first Muslims It was here that the great Ethiopian slave Bilal-e-Habsh stood to call the first azan Today it is ostentatious glittering and resplendent because it houses the mausoleum of the Prophet Whereas in his lifetime women came to him freely today they are kept as far as possible from his mortal remains This was my experience when I went to recite the fatiha at his grave My point here is the same: The intent of Islam and the Prophet to give equal access to women has been reversed by us everywhere The same reversal can be seen in other matters related to women Take two of the most notorious tenets attributed to Islam; polygamy and triple talaq Islam is globally condemned for “permitting” up to four marriages and “permitting” arbitrary talaq The reason for the universal condemnation is the popular understanding that Islam “allows” these terribly anti-women practices The fact that there are more multiple marriages in other religions than in Islam is negated by the fallacy that Islam casually permits them It is this grave aspersion on Islam that we need to fight and prove wrong rather than quibbling over settled practices such as dargah entry The simple fact about polygamy or “up to four marriages” is the giant step Islam took to correct the pre-Islamic practice of contracting scores and scores of marriages and treating women as chattel and spoils of war It drastically reduced the number to four but placed upon it a condition that was humanly impossible to fulfill “If you can give all wives exact equal treatment” was the strict injunction The next few words slice it to one The Quran states that human nature is such that equal treatment is impossible therefore best to stay with one and one only This restriction imposed 1400 years ago in essence prohibits multiple marriage and points towards monogamy But we not only refused to move forward we actually slid back The same holds for triple talaq There is nothing more repugnant to Islam than arbitrary talaq and yet the practice not only continues but is also condoned by some Islamic marriage is a legal contract between two people which is duly witnessed and sealed as a legal document In the same manner talaq is a legal process a way to get out of a bad marriage with the maximum advantage to the woman The manner of talaq is detailed in the Quran It calls for thoughtful well-considered action with prescribed intervals for review and change of mind At the same time it ensures that the woman is well-looked after as the first charge on the husband’s income The word in the Quran is that even if he has given her a “qintaar” of gold the husband should not ask for its return The Quran has many directions for the husband which when aggregated reflect its deep caring for women These are the aspects of Islam that we should take to the world change its view and align it with the teachings of the Quran Then there is the beauty of Islam which allows a million flowers to bloom Each according to his or her own light is what the Quran states It says that Allah is closer to you than your jugular vein So I can see it my way you can see it in yours; there is no compulsion in religion Lakum dinakum walia din There are five major schools of Islamic jurisprudence and scores of other smaller fiqahs people follow according to their will There is no homogenous Islam One fiqah may have more adherents but that does not mean that other fiqahs are “less” equal In the matter of triple talaq for instance there is clear rejection of it in the Shia school and Ahl e Hadith Freedom of choice is available to all believers In the Bombay HC judgment the BMMA has scored a victory They have brought the practice closer to the spirit My pain is that the court was constrained to quote the constitution and law to allow dargah entrance when Islam opens all places of worship and faith not only to women but to people of all faiths The worst thing the dargah trust can do now in my view is to appeal against this judgment There is a lesson here for all of us especially for those who profess to “speak for the Muslim quom” By their recalcitrant attitude aren’t they doing a great disservice to our great religion As Maulana Abul Kalam Azad whose Tajumanul Quran is the world’s best translation and explication said in his Al Hilal article: “All the miseries of the Muslims are due to the fact that they have turned from this divine source of guidance and they thought they needed to look upon it only in regard to religious rituals like roza and namaz They did not realise its importance in all aspects educational cultural and political” Wisdom flows from the words of the reformist poet-philosopher Maulana Altaf Husain Hali who wrote in 1879 in his 320 canto epic poem Musaddas e Hali: Until when will they last your atrophied days/ Until when will new generations be crushed/ Until when will persist your profligate ways/ Until when will you blindly just follow the herd/ Forget the old fable the tale and the story/ Fight scourge of bigotry it’s evil it’s fury For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More

nothing new in Nani’s performance while Aadhi has made an impression with his in the film Related News Ninnu Kori movie cast: Nani Aadhi Pinisetty Nivetha Thomas Ninnu Kori movie director: Shiva Nirvana Ninnu Kori movie rating: 2 stars Ninnu Kori starring Aadi Pinisetty (Arun) Nivetha Thomas (Pallavi) and Nani (Uma) in lead roles was one of the much anticipated Tollywood film this July Produced by DVV Danayya debutante director Shiva Nirvana has presented a love story which initially looked refreshing but as minutes pass by the film is too much of stretch with a few laughs thrown in The graph of the film is such that when it hits a low it is a terrible few minutes However when it hits a high there is some good performance on screen Cast Aadhi Pinisetty might be the silent diplomatic and reserved young man but his performance is noteworthy There is a scene in which Nani confronts Aadhi and the reaction he gets is just a minute long but he nailed it Nivetha the element of conflict between the two men plays her role beautifully From the beginning of the film to the end there is no confusion in her mind The problem mostly lies in the fact that Nani has been seen doing the same role since the beginning The package might look different but what is inside is the same old thing Screenplay It has happened multiple times before and it will happen many a time in the future A film loses its lustre without a strong screenplay In case of Ninnu Kori it was a great attempt at explaining the complexity of love lost and love found There are moments that hit you at all the right places Yes this is a straight commercial Tollywood love story However the nuance with which the father-daughter moments were written between Murli Sharma and Nivetha were great At the same time there are lose threads that are left dangling at the end of the film Direction Debutante director Shiva Nirvana had a great set of actors on hand to direct a film However the feeling that the film should have been made a little crisp for it to have the right impact niggles at the back of ones mind After having watched the trailer before and as we see the first scene unfold – the interest among audience is piqued After about 20 minutes however the rest of the story is clear And the question of who the girl will end up with is of course answered in the first scene too Cinematography Cinematography in this film will be one of the biggest attractions for fans From the city scapes of San Francisco the roads to Santa Monica to the beautiful sea-side of Vizag – the picturisation in the film is stunning The close-up shots look great on the silverscreen especially as these shots capture varying expressions subtlety It is the cinematography that has lent a script as old as time
