reflection of the “position” of the musculoskeletal structure (in lay man’s terms the way we stand sit or walk) of our body as it is held upright against gravity So what is a good posture A good posture means your bones are properly aligned and your muscles joints and ligaments can work as nature intended It means your vital organs are in the right position and can function at peak efficiency A good posture helps contribute to the normal functioning of the nervous system Without a good posture your overall health and total efficiency may be compromised Since the long-term effects of poor posture can be on your bodily systems (such as digestion breathing muscles joints and ligaments) a person who has a poor posture may often be tired or unable to work efficiently or move properly But what is a poor posture Visible signs of poor posture in people who slouch include tilting the head forward rounding the upper back and arching the lower back These positions exaggerate the spine’s natural curves The opposite type of bad posture results in a posture that is is too upright What are the signs of a poor posture Fatigue — your muscles have to work hard just to hold you up if you have a poor posture You waste energy just moving which leaves you without the extra energy you need to go about your day in an energetically Tight achy muscles in the neck back arms and legs — by this stage there may be a change in your muscles and ligaments and you may have a stiff tight painful feeling More than 80 per cent of the neck and back problems are the result of tight achy muscles brought on by years of bad posture Joint stiffness and pain — at risk for “wear and tear” arthritis or what is termed degenerative osteoarthritis Poor posture and limited mobility increase the likelihood of this condition in later years So how can you perform a self-assessment of your posture and whether it’s correct or not There are a couple of things that you can do Try the Mirror Test Stand facing a full-length mirror and check to see if: 1 Your shoulders are levelled 2 Your head is straight 3 The spaces between your arms and sides seem equal 4 Your hips are levelled your kneecaps face straight ahead 5 Your ankles are straight Then stand with your side towards the mirror This is much easier to do with the help of a friend or family member or by taking a photo of yourself Check for the following: 1 Head is erect not slumping forward or backwards 2 Chin is parallel to the floor not tilting up or down 3 Shoulders are in-line with your ears and not drooping forward or pulled back 4 Stomach is flat 5 Knees are straight 6 Lower back has a slightly forward curve (not too flat or not curved too much forward creating a hollow back) How to improve your posture In case you find that your posture does not match the above checklist there are ways to improve your posture too Try the following steps: * When standing — hold your head high chin firmly forward shoulders back chest out and stomach tucked in to increase your balance If you are someone who stands all day rest one foot on a stool or take breaks to get off your feet for a while * When sitting — use a chair with firm low-back support Keep the desk or table-top elbow high adjust the chair or use a footrest to keep pressure off the back of the legs and keep your knees a little higher than your hips Get up and stretch frequently — every hour if you sit for long periods of time Do not sit on a fat wallet; it can cause hip imbalance * When working on a computer — take a 1-2 minute task break every 20 minutes when you work at a computer screen Keep the screen 15 degrees below eye level Place reference materials on a copy stand even with and close to the terminal * When sitting in the car — adjust the seat forward so your knees are higher than your hips Put a small pillow or cushion in the small of your back * When sleeping — sleep on your side with your knees bent and head supported by a pillow to make your head level with your spine Or sleep on your back avoiding thick pillows under your head Use a small pillow under your neck instead Don’t sleep on your stomach * When lifting — let your legs do the work in order to prevent injury to your lower back Stand close to the object then where possible squat down and straddle it Grasp the object and slowly lift the load by straightening your legs as you stand up Carry the object close to your body * When bending — never twist from the waist and bend forward at the same time To lift or reach something on the floor bend the knees while keeping the back straight Your posture is how the world sees you and strengthening your posture is an intelligent habit to make you look and feel better avoid injury and exercise regularly to stay active and pain

hundreds of thousands rendered homeless by the fury of the river they worship as a God will rebuild their lives with bare hands and true grit and maybe a trickle of help from the government Life will go on – but only till the next flooding maybe the year after maybe two years down the line For there is no escaping floods on the Gangetic belt any more Laloo Prasad Yadav’s twisted logic may well turn out to be correct Ganga Maia will come visiting the lowliest of the low on its banks in Bihar UP West Bengal regularly from now on Even if the monsoon is not exceptionally heavy even if steps like strengthening the embankments say are taken in time Flood relief will have to be factored in into state budgets every year Scientists are almost unanimous regular flooding of the banks of the Gangetic plain can now be taken as a fact of life unless drastic measures are taken soon But not quite what Nitish Kumar has proposed: Dismantle the Farakka Barrage in northern Bengal which to him is the chief culprit for all the ills that have begun to plague his state every monsoon Even though he is not wholly wrong The history of the Farakka Barrage is a cautionary tale in how not to tamper with nature how geopolitical changes can lay to waste the best laid plans of man how hope can be easily belied if based on incomplete knowledge It is also an object lesson in how politicians interpret the greater good to the detriment of the country as a whole Hardinge Bridge Bangladesh crosses the Ganges-Padma River It is one of the key sites for measuring streamflow and discharge on the lower Ganges Image Courtesy: Wiki Commons It all began at a time when Calcutta (not Kolkata) mattered A Calcutta that became a bustling chaotic port after Job Charnock docked there in the seventeenth century but carried the seeds of its destruction in the choice of its location: not on the mighty Ganga itself but on an offshoot of the river the Bhagirathi-Hughli Even being the capital of an empire could not save Calcutta’s port from nature’s depredations The rapid silting of the river making it un-navigable for large ships was noticeable even in the nineteenth century The proposal to save the port by constructing a barrage across the Ganga and diverting some of its waters into the Bhagirathi was made by Sir Arthur Cotton as far back as 1853 It remained on paper for over a hundred years In 1957 an India that was rushing to build temples of modernity with its big dams and huge public sector undertakings invited another British engineer Dr W Hensen to suggest a way out Calcutta still held hope Saving it was important to the nation’s psyche Dr Hensen echoed Sir Arthur and suggested Farakka in northern Bengal as the spot for the barrage to come up ten miles upstream from the border with then East Pakistan through which the river travelled to reach the sea Except that it is called the Padma there after it joins up with the Brahmaputra Naturally Pakistan protested but water wars were unheard of then in fact water was yet to be seen as a scarce commodity river water sharing was not the sensitive issue it is today the UN hadn’t begun to take note of it as seriously as it does nowadays Pakistan’s concerns were dismissed outright By the time the barrage was built East Pakistan had become Bangladesh but it remains a sticky issue between the two countries till today Usually Bangladesh complains of lack of water; today it is complaining of excessive discharge from the Farakka Barrage which has opened all its hundred plus gates to manage the swollen heaving river Started in 1962 the 262 km long Farakka Barrage was completed in 1971 The excavation of a 38 kilometre-long feeder canal took another four years and the whole project was finally commissioned with much pomp and ceremony on 21 May 1975 Billed as “an infrastructure marvel of strategic importance” it was a proud moment for India One lonely voice did protest Kapil Bhattacharya the chief engineer of the government of Bengal predicted that it was a pointless exercise; worse it would do more harm than good as it would lead to vast deposits of sediment upstream that would raise the riverbed higher and higher so that there would be catastrophic floods in time even if there was normal rainfall Precisely the scenario in Bihar today The rainfall there has been slightly below average so far but the flooding has been massive Of course Kapil Bhattacharya was not thanked for his pains Rather he was promptly dubbed a Pakistani agent (anti-national in today’s lingo) and forced to resign Bhattacharya was prescient about the Farakka Barrage’s primary objective too – rejuvenating the Calcutta port You don’t need to be an expert to see how miserably it has failed on that count The silt accumulated the water from Farakka was not enough to flush it out Calcutta stopped being a port city decades ago and lives only in the pages of Amitav Ghosh’s books namely his recent Ibis trilogy According to Dr Jayanta Bandopadhyay former professor and head of the Centre for Development and Environment Indian Institute of Management Calcutta “The Europeans were clueless about the nature of the Himalayan rivers Their own rivers are subjected to slow rain almost daily Our monsoons the torrential rains they bring for a few months the siltation that takes place after they hit the Himalayas these are things they were quite unfamiliar with A lot of solid flows in the Himalayan rivers unlike rivers in the West Naturally their calculations about the Farakka Barrage went completely awry” In fact the way things are going the Ganga may soon outflank the barrage and flow through its old 15th century course which will reduce the Farakka barrage to just a bridge an important bridge no doubt linking north and south Bengal but a bridge nevertheless Nitish Kumar would get his wish and the Farakka Barrage would stand testament to man’s hubris about nature But work on the construction of another barrage would have to begin almost immediately and it would be started by Nitish Kumar’s friendly neighbour Mamata Banerjee However much the Bihar chief minister may decry the barrage for Bengal’s chief minister it is absolutely vital Not for what it was meant to be but for what it has become: The chief source of water supply a lifeline for the thickly populated politically and culturally influential southern Bengal which includes the city of Kolkata No wonder Dr Kalyan Rudra chairman of the State Pollution Control Board and an expert on river sciences scoffs at Nitish Kumar’s proposal that the Farakka Barrage be done away with “Utterly ridiculous” he retorts “An absurd idea About 200 kilometres of the non-tidal part of the river would dry up It would be a disaster for Bengal” In sum not just floods but water wars are on the cards that might one day and not too far off threaten to drown the Third Front bonhomie that the chief ministers of Bengal and Bihar are working so assiduously to create But then as Bandopadhyay points out political compulsions will always dictate the way the different chief ministers behave Dams and five-star hotels are built in the upper reaches of the Ganga even though they destabilise the entire river basin because it serves the immediate interests of the leaders there to do so The only way out he says is to have a Ganga river basin authority that can take a holistic approach and serve the river and all the states on its banks equally An unlikely prospect given that the central government is already drawing up plans to divert waters build dams and link rivers to create an inland waterway that may well repeat the mistakes of the past As they say those who forget history are condemned to repeat it Written by Jaithirth Rao |
