Its not everyday that you see a report ‘commissioned’ by a Govt body on a deeply invasive surgical procedure – that show’s that 60% of the population of study 1 has severe-to-adverse results and 38% of the population of study 2 simply goes missing! And then the study declares the surgical procedure a success. The one thing worse could be that a complex invasive surgical procedure is tested on only 24 individuals and would then be used on millions each year. And the only thing worse than that could beRead More

Shimla has an interesting history with dogs – the Municipal Corp created a dog pound to remove the dogs from the streets. The deplorable conditions of this pound were covered in an expose here and with a revisit here. The accompanying picture is from the same pound. Sometimes the Corporation and the local AWBI legal reps are in such hurry to just be in court that they fail to present clear facts to the court – that’s happened in Bangalore, and that happened in Shimla. Like in Bangalore it led the ShimlaRead More

We’ve seen 2 parts of the coverage of the ARF shelter at Kengeri (1) the findings of  The Voice of Stray Dogs (VoSD) on location at ARF Kengeri in Jan 2013, and (2) the experience of the people going to shelter in the months preceding Jan 2013.
