3. Deadly Attacks and Vengeance as Portrayed by Arundhati Roy in "Walking with the Comrades"

Maoists, took the appearance of a band of outlaws in and around West Bengal, Bihar and Orissa border. They used to live in the jungles and made military style guerrilla attacks on the British sponsored East India Company. They were called as the Cowboys, who more or less looked like the Robin Hood of the fables. They took money from the rich and gave it to the poor or they fought for the welfare of villagers. Their groups were filled with idealists though they had a very literate cross-section within them. These Maoists made many idealistic speeches to please the literate sections of the freedom movement. Even now in many villages in India, Maoists are still looked upon as the saviors of poor people.

5. A Questionnaire Survey on Prescriptions of Medication Post Endodontic Treatment by General Dentists

Endodontic therapy or root canal therapy is the treatment modality for the infected pulp of a tooth which results in the elimination of infection and the protection of the decontaminated tooth from future microbial invasion. Many endodontic patients believe that post-treatment pain is unavoidable, yet several clinical trials indicate that postoperative pain occurs in only 25–40% of all endodontic patients. However, post-treatment pain may last up to several days, depending upon the treatment. Hence, successful management of endodontic pain is an important concern for patients. This Research will include the comparison of prescription of medicines, post-endodontic treatment.

6. Novel Protocol to Manage Peri-implantitis

Peri-implantitis is characterized by an inflammatory reaction that affects the hard and soft tissue, which results in loss of supporting bone and pocket formation surrounding the functioning osseointegrated implant. This short communication proposes new protocols for management of periimplantisis. The non-surgical approach involves the mechanical surface debridement using carbon or titanium currettes, laser light, and antibiotics whereas, the surgical approach involves implantoplasty, elevation of mucoperiosteal flap and removal of peri-inflammatory granulation tissue followed by surface decontamination and bone grafting.

7. Implant Maintenance-A New Protocol

As implant treatment becomes part of mainstream dental therapy, dental offices should implement protocols for individualized, systematic and continuous supportive care of the peri-implant tissues. This short communication article suggests guidelines for maintenance care of dental implants. The preliminary assessment should begin with updating the patient’s medical and dental histories. The clinical implant should be examined to evaluate the following: the condition of the soft tissues, plaque index, clinical probing depth, bleeding on probing, suppuration, the stability of soft-tissue margins, keratinized tissue, mobility, and occlusion. If the clinical signs suggest the presence of peri-implantitis, radiography of the site is advisable, to confirm the diagnosis. Appropriate treatment should be pursued according to any diagnosis reached during the examination, including (but not limited to) instructions on oral hygiene, removal of supra- and sub-gingival plaque and calculus, occlusal adjustment, relining of a removable prosthesis or surgery.

8. Effects of Mulligan’s Mobilization Adjunct to Agility and Perturbation Exercises in Subjects with Knee Osteoarthritis

Background: Osteoarthritis of the knee is one of the common diseases, mainly affecting the articular cartilage of a synovial joint. Which results in pain, decreased proprioception, muscle weakness, and disability. Mulligan’s mobilization helps in relieving pain and improves ROM, but lacks in stability. Agility and perturbation exercises improve stability and proprioception but lack in the improvement of ROM. Mulligan’s mobilization and Agility and Perturbation exercises in combination can bring better outcome results. Purpose: The purpose of the study is to find out whether Mulligan’s mobilization MWM (Internal rotation glide) as an adjunct to Agility and Perturbation can bring better outcome in patients when compared to Mulligan’s alone. Methods: 60 patients were assigned to two groups 30 each group and subjects were selected by convenient sampling method. Group A with mulligan’s mobilization alone and group B SWD with Mulligan’s mobilization as an adjunct to Agility and Perturbation exercises. The treatment session was performed on alternate days for 6weeks. Each subject performed all the measurement with knee function assessed NPRS, knee ROM by Goniometer, Timed up and go scale (TUG) and WOMAC index. All outcome were tested at starting the day, week 3 and final week 6 of pre and post-treatment. Results: The group analysis was done for NPRS, TUG, ROM, WOMAC in the evaluation of knee function was done using independent ‘t’ test. Within the groups paired t-test used and showed statistically significant. Conclusion: It is concluded that Mulligan’s technique with Agility and perturbation exercises is a better treatment approach than Mulligan’s with conventional exercises.

Because of unfamiliar with the environment and medical procedures and unaware of the reasons for hospitalization, it can result in children’s anger, uncertainty, anxiety, and feelings of helplessness. Aim: The objectives of the study were to assess and compare level of anxiety before and after the administration of play interventions among hospitalized children in experimental and comparison group and to determine the association of anxiety among hospitalized children with selected variables. Method: A Non equivalent control group pretest-posttest design was used. Sixty participants were selected using purposive sampling (30 in experimental and 30 in comparison group).The data was collected by “Structured Anxiety Rating Scale” with structured interview technique from participants. Result: :- The Findings of this study revealed that in comparison of posttest mean score of anxiety in experimental and comparison group, the obtained ‘t’ value and ‘p’ value were 12.23 and 0.001 respectively, hence found to be significant (p < 0.05) at 0.05 level. Therefore the study concluded that play interventions is effective in reducing anxiety among Hospitalized Children. A significant association was found between Anxiety score and selected variables i.e education of father (0.01), education of mother (0.01), occupation of father(0.03), family monthly income (0.04), place of residence (0.01) and type of family (0.01) and any medical personnel in family (0.04) in comparison group.
