Contracts Favouring Manufacturers To Go

Govt To Amend Consumer Law To End Unfair Terms

Soon, your telecom operator, bank or real estate developer may not be able to get away with one-sided contracts.
The government is set to revamp the Consumer Protection Act, 1986 to provide for acting against unfair terms in contracts which are skewed in favour of service providers or manufacturers.
Government officials said discussions are on to bring in transparent rules on unfair contracts. Under the present laws, the contracts are unilateral and there is no protection against unfair contracts. The planned changes are likely to be introduced in Parliament soon. “Work is under way on the issue and we hope to bring the changes for debate soon,” a senior government official told TOI.


Okhil Babu’s letter to the Railway department:

I am arrive by passenger train Ahmedpur station and my belly is too much swelling with jackfruit. I am therefore went to privy. Just I doing the nuisance that guard making whistle blow for train to go off and I am running with lotaah in one hand and dhoti in the next when I am fall over and expose all my shocking
to man and female women on platform. I am got leaved at Ahmedpur station. This too much bad, if passenger go to make dung that dam guard not wait train five minutes for him. I am therefore pray your honour to make big fine on that guard for public sake. Otherwise I am making big report to papers. Okhil Chandra Sen wrote this letter to the Sahibganj divisional railway office in 1909. It is on display at the Railway Museum in New Delhi. It was also reproduced under the caption Travellers Tales in the Far Eastern Economic Review.
Any guesses why this letter is of historic value?

It led to the introduction of TOILETS in trains in India…..!!!!

Breakthrough Could Make Dental Drills Obsolete

Imagine never having to face your dentist’s drill again. No more needles… no more “floppy lips” or embarrassing drooling afterwards… and no more pain.
Doctors at Britain’s University of Leeds may have just made the drill obsolete. Their breakthrough actually helps teeth reverse decay and repair themselves. And their discovery may not only save you from pain… it could save you thousands of dollars in dental bills, too.

Here’s the story…
Within 20 minutes of eating, bacteria in your mouth begin to combine with food particles and your saliva. Together, they form plaque deposits on your teeth.
The bacteria also convert sugars and starches in your food to acid. This acid eats tiny holes – called micro-pores – in your teeth. Over time, the acid enlarges the pores more and more – until you have a “cavity.”
You usually don’t notice a cavity growing, because there are no nerve endings in your tooth enamel. But as the cavity grows larger, it can eat down to where there are nerve endings – or even fracture your tooth.
When this happens, you need a filling… a crown… a root canal… or maybe even an extraction. And any one of these procedures can be painful.
The researchers at the University of Leeds discovered how to “train” teeth to rebuild healthy enamel while cavities are still at the micro-pore stage. The secret is a tiny molecule called a peptide.
Peptides are sort of like mini-proteins. Their structure is very similar to a protein, but usually much simpler.
The doctors at Leeds discovered a special peptide – called P11-4 – can assemble itself into fibers. They’ve created a fluid that triggers this action and can be “painted” onto a tooth’s surface.
When their “magic fluid” comes into contact with your saliva, it forms a gel. A gel loaded with these special peptide fibers that build a sort of scaffolding in the micro-pores.
And here’s where it gets really interesting. Calcium – the major building block of tooth enamel – is attracted to P11-4. Calcium begins to build up on the scaffolding in the micro-pores and the tooth literally rebuilds itself.
Now here’s the great part… This isn’t just a theory. The research team at Leeds has already tested P11-4 on humans. When they painted it on teeth showing early signs of decay, the “scaffolding” formed inside micro-pores and the people’s teeth literally reversed the effects of decay.
No needle… no drill… no pain. Even better, by avoiding a filling, you could be avoiding even more discomfort later on.
For one thing, plaque tends to build up along the edges of fillings. So this process may not only help repair existing damage… it may help prevent future damage, too.
Plus, teeth with fillings are weaker than healthy teeth. It’s not uncommon for cracks to form in filled teeth after several years. At that point, a crown or root canal may be necessary. That can mean a lot of discomfort. And an unwelcome expense. A crown can easily set you back $1,000 or more.
A Swiss company has already licensed the P11-4 process and plans to run larger trials. So, before long, you could be seeing a lot less of your dentist’s drill.
