Can Someone Please Help This Girl
This girl Twinkle Diwedi from Lucknow is suffereing a deadly disease, please do if you can do anything for her. Here is a detailed report by India TV news.
Can anybody help this girl please
Lucknow's 14-year-old Twinkle Dwivedi is in popular British tabloids The Sun and News of the World because of her mysterious disease, in which she spontaneously bleeds at least 50 times a day.
She has this strange disorder which means she loses blood through her skin without being cut or scratched.
Twinkle has even undergone transfusions after pints of it seeped through her eyes, nose, hairline, neck and soles of her feet.
A leading American haematologist Dr George Buchanan travelled to India to look into the startling case. The teenager has been zing blood up to 50 times a day for the last three years.
She said: "I bleed from my eyes, my hands, my head, from everywhere. From my ears, nose and eyes as well. It doesn't hurt when the bleeding starts. But it makes me tired and sometimes I have headaches
Dr Buchanan visited Twinkle's family at the Jaslok Hospital in Mumbai where he observed her bleeding.
He said: "I've never seen a case of someone who bleeds spontaneously from their scalp or their palms, or read about it in medical history. I was interested to see if I could help Twinkle."
The doctor was called to the family's hotel room to witness bleeding which began from her hair parting.
He was shocked to find no signs of cuts, bruising or redness.
Dr Buchanan said: "It doesn't seem physically possible for blood to seep through intact skin. But I saw no signs of cuts or bruising anywhere on her body."
Dr Buchanan and his team carried out a series of tests including cutting Twinkle's skin to time how quickly the bleeding stops.
Tests show she may have a mild form of a clotting disorder, which means her platelets do not stick together properly. But this is not enough to explain the spontaneous bleeding.
Dr Buchanan is also investigating whether Twinkle or her mum cause the bleeding themselves.
Twinkle said: "I am not causing this. Why would I want to make myself bleed? I don't want to be like this. I want to go to school and have a normal life."
The unlucky girl has missed at least two years of education after two schools banned her from classes because of the bleeding.
The mysterious case of Twinkle's bleeding is fully examined in a new BodyShock documentary on British Channel 4 to be telecast on Tuesday night.
It also shows Twinkle's family visiting a local mystic, being examined by a Christian bishop for stigmata, and bathing in the River Ganga.
Girls that made us Proud
LETS SAVE LAADO
CHALO BETI KO BACHAYEIN
Today a girl child is several times more likely to be eliminated before birth in India than die of various causes in the first year of her existence.
killing a girl before birth and after birth is not the only issues with a girl child in India. Actually at every stage of life she is discriminated and neglected for basic nutrition, education and living standard. When she is in the womb, she is eliminated before she can enter the world. If by chance she takes birth then at the time of birth this society pull her back and wrung her neck and after killing her she is thrown into a trash can. If she gets lucky to survive from all this inhumanity, then her childhood is not more than a punishment with her brother getting all the attention with new shoes, dresses and books to learn while she is gifted a broom, a wiper and lots of tears. In her teenage, she misses nutritious food to eat and gets only the left over crumbs.And by chance if she go for studies, during the age when she should be in college she is hurriedly "married off" leading to conditions where she remains ever dependant on others for her survival. She does not have either social or economic independence. Further her illiteracy, lack of education results in unwanted and early pregnancies, high fertility rate. This further effects the overall condition of females in the country. Again if this female gives birth to a girl child, the whole journey cycle of murder and discrimination begins all over again.
Although sex determination and sex selection is a criminal offence in India, it changes nothing. Private clinics with ultrasound machines and other latest technologies are doing brisk business. Everywhere, people are paying to know the sex of an unborn child and paying more to abort the female child. The technology has even reached remote areas of the country through facilities like mobile clinics. People are getting sex determination done even for the first child.
"Equality is a fundamental right," but where is the gender equality when one million girl are killed every year before birth itself. Therefore we need to understand the fact that our situation is really alarming and it is the high time to do something effective to stop this.
ABORTIONS BY WORKING WOMEN
AURAT HI AURAT KI DUSHMAN KYUN
The reasons stated behind the abortions by working women are: They want a small family; they want better career prospects; they want a male child and they do not want daughters. Many of these women justify sex selection and abortions because they think that if they deliver a baby boy then they are looked upon in the family. Also, they do not want their daughters to suffer the hardships a girl has to face. Besides that they find themselves unable to afford the dowry expenses the parents of a girl child have to bear. "Since maintaining the high living standards has become so expensive, who will save for her?" say modern mothers. These are the 'serious' reasons these literate and modern women give for not giving birth to a girl child. But they are forgetting that had their mothers thought the same way, they would have also met the same fate.
DAHEJ EK ABHISHAAP
is a big issue for the urban INDIA because the amount which people are expected to pay as dowry is very high. Aside from the costs of dowries and marriages, there are other reasons why daughters are seen as less desirable like there is general belief that sons will look after their old parents and daughters are anyway to go to a different household and are therefore of not much use in the long run. The social and cultural settings are negatively biased against women. After marriage, a woman traditionally lives with the family of the husband, leaving her own parents to be looked after by a son, if there is one, in their old age. Sons carry on the family name and often the business, usually inherit the property and perform the last rites. All these contribute towards a negative bias against the girl child even before she takes birth.
AWARENESS IN SOCIETY
AKHIR KAB TAK
We have to make aware the society about the pitiable state of LAADO in the Indian society of which abortion and killing of the BITIYA is most cruel one.
Achievements of the successful women different fields of the society as well as from different walks of life need to be highlighted to change the attitude of the society against women.
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
It's high time we all pull up our socks to help save the girl child as time is really running out for the girl child in India. The disastrous consequences of what is happening today will vanish out daughters from the country. Therefore to prevent a horrible future the need of the hour is to realize our responsibilities and give a halt to this evil crime of killing the girl child in the womb itself. A determined drive can initiate a spark to light the lamp and show the world that we indeed are the land of the great goddesses and mothers. A small step today will definitely lead to a giant leap tomorrow.
