asiannewsagency - 2 days ago
New Delhi: On World Autism Awareness Day, which falls on 2nd April, we recognize and celebrate the rights of persons with autism. This year’s observance takes place in the midst of a public health crisis unlike any other in our lifetimes — a crisis that places persons with autism at disproportionate risk as a result of the coronavirus and its impact on society.
Autism spectrum disorder impacts the nervous system and affects the overall cognitive, emotional, social and physical health of the affected individual. The range and severity of symptoms can vary widely. Common symptoms include difficulty with communication, difficulty with social interactions, obsessive interests and repetitive behaviors.
Early recognition, as well as behavioral, educational and family therapies may reduce symptoms and support development and learning.
“Universal human rights, including the rights of persons with disabilities, must not be infringed upon in the time of a pandemic. Governments have a responsibility to ensure that their response includes persons with autism,” said Dr. Sandeep Marwah President of World Peace Development And Research Foundation while talking to the members of the organization on line.
“Persons with autism should never face discrimination when seeking medical care. They must continue to have access to the support systems required to remain in their homes and communities through times of crisis, instead of facing the prospect of forced institutionalization,” reminded Dr. Marwah also president of We feel Festival of films on Disability.

If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick Put distance between yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community. This is especially important for people who are at higher risk of getting very sick. Stay home if you are sick, except to get medical care.
Cover coughs and sneezes Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow. Throw used tissues in the trash. Immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, clean your hands with a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
If you are sick: You should wear a facemask when you are around other people (e.g., sharing a room or vehicle) and before you enter a healthcare provider’s office. If you are not able to wear a facemask (for example, because it causes trouble breathing), then you should do your best to cover your coughs and sneezes, and people who are caring for you should wear a facemask if they enter your room.
If you are NOT sick: You do not need to wear a facemask unless you are caring for someone who is sick (and they are not able to wear a facemask). Facemasks may be in short supply and they should be saved for caregivers.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.
If surfaces are dirty, clean them: Use detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection. Dr. Marwah suggested to consult their doctor in case of emergency. They must follow instructions passed on by the Government from time to time.

Once, there live a bird.. she found a nice owner who treats her super duper well..she is happy..
The owner only like that bird but worries when the bird chat and flew around with other birds. Soon, the owner put a cage over the bird so that she no longer can fly around with the other birds. The bird thought that for the love that the owner showered her with, it's ok to compromise so as not to anger the owner. She stopped flying around and stayed inside the cage.
Some time later, the bird saw other birds flying around. They stopped by and sing with the bird. This time round, the owner was again unhappy. She took the bird and together with the cage, she kept them in her room. She continued to shower the bird with love daily. She told the bird: "As I love you only, why do u need to fly and sing with the other birds?"
The bird now has an added emotion; Sadness. Why does she has all the love but yet its sadness and loneliness?
Years gone by... Over the years, the bird made several attempts to convince the owner to release her as she missed her friends and hopes to fly and sing again but to no avail.
One day the owner got drunk and pierced a knife thru the heart of the bird. The bird bled non stop. With her pain the bird beg the owner to release her. The owner felt guilty and open the cage reluctantly.. this time round the bird has yet another added emotion; hatred.
But it was never the same anymore. The bird has forgotten how to fly and sing. When the bird attempted to fly she realised that the owner had put a leash on her so that she cannot go far. Everyday the owner will check if there are any birds coming near to fly and sing with the bird.
The bird flew around the cage with a leash happily. Her friends came and they sang again. When the owner returned she was so affected she shoo away all the other birds. The owner wants the bird to only love her and sing to her.
Fearing for the safety of her friends, the bird went back into the cage where she spend the rest of her life...
Corona Has Brought Us Close to Spirituality- Sandeep Marwah
New Delhi: “Jo Hota Hai Bhale Ke Liye Hota Hai” –There is always a positive side of any event or happening and hence we can relate to the spiritual reasons for this kind of pandemic on this earth. It seems that God has pressed the restart button of planet EARTH,’’ said Dr. Sandeep Marwah President of World Peace Development And Research Foundation.
The media and entertainment industry has never believed in dividing the society on the basis of caste, creed, religion, status, region, colour, culture and this kind of pandemic is a proof that once you are sick you are treated by doctors with same kind of medicines, injections and treatment. Believe me that we all are part of the same family- Human Beings. Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam .
We have learned that if such an epidemic hits someone in any part of the World, it hurts us, it makes us worry, it bothers us too. We are somehow connected with unseen chain. Pandemic does not believe in borders of the country nor does it need a passport to cross the boundaries.
During this period we have realized that Health Is Wealth-‘Jaan Hai To Jahaan Hai’ we have been ignoring our food & health giving fast food a priority over the nutritious and hygienic home food but we have now been forced to revert back to the latter.
We had lost the meaning of life but have now been reminded of better values to help and support others especially old and sick people. We had forgotten the value of healthy food, water and medicine and had engrossed ourselves in the collection of luxuries of life, which, we now realize, are not that essential and useless at this time of danger.
It has reunited us with our family and family values which had taken a back seat and had almost vanished into oblivion. This pandemic has brought our families close to each other.
Our presence on earth is not only to make financial gains or to do an office job but also to adopt a humanitarian approach, which means looking after, supporting, loving and protecting each other.
It has taught us not to be egoistic: How powerful, how influential, how rich, or how egoistic you may be a small virus can put your ego to standstill.
It has reminded us the power of energy we possess to support, to help, to share and not to be selfish and only look after us. Doctors, Forces, suppliers they have already opted to be the first one.
The present situation is testing us whether we should panic or be patient, whether we are gainers or losers and soon our true colors will start reflecting. At least it teaches us to be positive thinker and worker.
It is reminding us that time has come when we have to learn from our past. Love and respect your Mother Earth. It has taught us that life is very important -there is power of hope, power of healing and power to win. Let’s treat CORONA VIRUS as THE TEACHER OF THE CENTURY and pray almighty to please save us from this calamity.
