when is a female athlete not female enough These are debates that sports has always struggled to answer and will continue to do so But a teenage sprinting sensation born in poverty in Orissa took it upon herself to prove to the powers-that-be that she is a woman and she has the right to compete that no one can take away from her Dutee Chand on 27 July 2015 took a small step for herself and a giant leap for fellow female athletes when she argued successfully that women athletes should not be discriminated based on their natural levels of testosterone Teenage sensation Dutee Chand will be able to do what she loves to once again Courtesy: Facebook Hyperandrogenism is the condition in human body where there is an excess generation of androgens For those of us who did not take biology classes too seriously testosterone is the androgen hormone that is secreted by reproductive organs in males In females hyperandrogenism results in more than normal amounts of testosterone Now that the technicalities are out of the way testosterone level in the body is the only methodology in use today to determine if an athlete can compete in the male category or female The theory behind this is that excess testosterone levels meant that athletes with perceived ‘normal’ characteristics are discriminated against Who was the case fought between and who presided over it Dutee Chand the 19-year-old athlete took the matter to the Court of Arbitration of Sport (CAS) against a) Athletics Federation of India and b) International Association of Athlerics Federation (IAAF) Sports Authority of India (SAI) who had conducted the initial tests on Chand have continued to back their athlete calling IAAF’s policy to be ‘unscientific unfair and unethical’ What exactly happened during the arbitration What are the two sides to this story Through no apparent fault of her own or external influences Dutee Chand was told by Athletics Federation of India in 2014 that she cannot participate in races because she was deemed to possess an undue advantage But IAAF ‘s regulations are meant to provide fairness to athletes IAAF on their part have never expressly stated that Dutee Chand is not a female CAS set about the investigation noting the fact that Dutee Chand is most definitely a female This was never in doubt by any of the parties involved CAS was to merely examine whether the Hyperandrogenism Regulations were discriminatory and not based on facts The CAS also noted that the IAAF had not acted in bad faith and was merely trying to implement their regulations The issues that were addressed were discrimination against athletes and scientific evidence Believe it or not there is plenty of scientific evidence to support both sides of the argument evidenced by the number of experts who deposed in front of the CAS File photo of Dutee Chand PTI Dutee on her part wanted to prove that testosterone that is naturally produced by the human body did NOT have a similar effect as ingesting steroids to enhance performance Dr Payoshni Mitra a research consultant on gender issues in sport who has been working closely with SAI and Dutee ever since the trial began has maintained that the regulations are based on false premises Other experts argued that the testosterone levels are dynamic in the body and it is senseless to fix a limit on something that keeps changing IAAF on their part produced expert witnesses to say that there is no other way to ensure fairness It has long been established that male athletes are superior in physical attributes to their female counterparts because of their hormone characteristics British runner Paula Radcliffe who holds the world record among women in the marathon was also present during the trial but on IAAF’s side “The concern remains that their bodies respond in different stronger ways to training and racing than women with normal testosterone levels and that this renders the competition fundamentally unfair” said Radcliffe of such hyperandrogenic athletes So what is the verdict CAS agreed that testosterone levels in males are the main factor in deciding the athlete’s performance and it offers a competitive advantage over female athletes The separation between men and women based on this is therefore justified The problem however is to determine the proportionality of advantage a female athlete gains by possessing naturally higher levels of testosterone In other words the difference between testosterone levels between a man and woman is in no way comparable to a woman with normal and abnormal levels of testosterone The existing IAAF regulations therefore do not pass muster But the CAS notes a need to revise the regulations based on evolving scientific evidence The regulations are therefore SUSPENDED for two years and if IAAF cannot provide more evidence or change their modify their regulations the regulations will only then be declared null and void Has this happened before Why is Dutee Chand’s case being hailed as a landmark event Yes it has The most famous incident is the Caster Semenya case The South African sprinter was withdrawn from international competition for nearly a year

grandiose project proposals but just a bucket of seeds and determination in his heart to give meaning to his life Related News Most environmental stories are so laden with doom and gloom that they tend to put you off the subject (and your breakfast) entirely — you don’t need such doomsday fare first thing on a Sunday (or worse) Monday morning Global warming forest fires running rampant rivers being converted into sewers (and being worshipped) deforestation at a horrendous pace oceans being filled with plastic rainforests being pillaged animals massacred — the list goes on “Feel good” stories in jungleland are few and far between but are far more important: they’ve shown that things can work and if we extrapolate or follow the examples they provide we can perhaps even draw back from teetering over the tipping point Take the example of Jadav “Molai” Payeng who lives near Jorhat in Assam better known as the “Man Who Planted a Forest” (larger than New York’s Central Park) As a 16- year-old he was devastated by the mass deaths of snakes on a hot barren sandbar forming Majuli island in the Brahmaputra the largest such river island in the world (How many hip young 16-year-old kids would spare a thought for a single dead snake Can you imagine doing such a thing when you were of that age) He worked for a forestry project involving tree plantation nearby and started off by planting bamboo seedlings on the sandbar The project was completed in five years but Payeng stayed on single-handedly planting other trees and nurturing them living in a hut with his wife and three children subsisting on the income generated by selling the milk of his cows and buffaloes The area (which ultimately ended up being 1360 acres or 550 ha) was soon too large for him to personally water ever day so he devised a simple if ingenious drip irrigation system with suspended mud pots that only needed filling once a week Over 1000 species of plants and trees were raised and Payeng even transferred red ants from his village to the site so that they could manage the soil As the forest grew the animals looked at it and liked what they saw So now it is home to tigers rhinos elephants deer and myriad species of birds including rare vultures The authorities of course only opened their eyes in 2008 and that too only after villagers complained that a gang of elephants had raided their village and run away to hide in this forest (which they wanted to cut down) It’s taken Jadav 30 years to achieve what he has but heck I’ve lived in Delhi for over 30 yeas and my garden is still well just a garden with neither tigers nor elephants visiting it (Monkeys do but that’s another story) His forest was certainly not cut down and he was honoured by the Jawaharlal Nehru University and finally this year given the Padma Shri Several documentaries have been made about his achievement and the forest that should be mandatory viewing in schools and colleges and corporate offices throughout the country Hopefully the area will be declared a “conservation reserve” and get some sort of legal protection So it was just one man with no massive funding or grandiose project proposals but just a bucket of seeds and determination in his heart to give meaning to his life The case of Pamela and Anil Malhotra was different — and an example that many from the more well-off section of the society need to pay attention to Twenty-three years ago this NRI couple bought up 55 acres of apparently useless land in Kodagu in Karnataka which farmers had abandoned because of — unusually — excessive rainfall This slowly expanded to 360 acres Some native trees were already established in the area and many more species were introduced Three simple rules governed the “management” of the place: no human interference no chopping of trees and no poaching A dense tropical rainforest was the result inhabited once again by tigers elephants sambars and over 300 species of birds This is probably the first private wildlife sanctuary in the country and hopefully will not be the only one Yet another example which I have seen myself (and written about) is Delhi’s own Yamuna Biodiversity Park ostensibly different in the sense that here institutions were involved (Delhi University’s Centre for the Environmental Management of Degraded Ecosystems and the DDA) rather than individuals But scratch the surface and the individuals appear — here the team of enthusiastic scientists who worked to convert what could only have been a tank- testing waste land into a rustling bird-filled wonderland It must give these people a great deal of satisfaction when they see (or think about) the “before” and “after” scenarios of what they’ve achieved though usually they are not the type who will sit back and preen They will all have further ambitions and be working towards fulfilling them But look at what the work’s got them — no not money — rather a lot of sweaty toil dealing with plenty of unpleasant people (whose natural habitat would be a snake pit) sometimes angry animals but also a hugely meaningful life (with no dithering about “what should I do with my life”) And at the end of it all a great rustling green jungleland all of their own making So yes we have the brains all right to convert even the most saline devastated hopeless bombed-out wasteland into something akin to a natural wonderland Now we need to realise that this is something we have to do because very soon we will have no choice — and that outcome will not be good Ranjit Lal is an author

officers while being zero-tolerant towards corruption Union minister Jitendra Singh said on Tuesday File image of Union minister Jitendra Singh Image courtesy: PIB His assertion assumes significance as a special CBI court had on Monday sentenced former coal secretary H C Gupta to two years in jail in a coal block case The sentencing has caused a feeling of angst among serving bureaucrats who feel that it may paralyse bureaucracy as officers would be hesitant to take any decision "While being zero-tolerant towards corruption we will also give adequate protection to the performing officers" the minister said during a press conference He was referring to changes in the Prevention of Corruption (PC) Act being suggested by the government As per a bill to change the PC Act all central government employees including those who have retired will be getting a ‘shield’ from prosecution as it would be made mandatory for investigating agencies like the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to take the Centre’s prior approval before conducting any inquiry against them The move is also based on the recommendation of a parliamentary committee which had suggested the shield for public servants by making it mandatory for the agencies like the CBI and the police to take "previous approval" of competent authority before conducting any inquiry or investigation against a public servant — from peon to secretary However such an approval will not be necessary for cases involving "arrest of a person on the spot on the charge of accepting or attempting to accept any undue advantage for himself or for any other person" the panel had said The bill may come up during the upcoming Monsoon Session of Parliament the minister suggested Gupta and two serving senior officials — K S Kropha and and K C Samaria — were sentenced to two years in prison for irregularities in the allocation of a coal block in Madhya Pradesh to a private firm They became the first public servants to be convicted and sentenced for the multi-crore coal block allocation scam unearthed during the previous UPA regime Gupta a 1971 batch officer of Indian Administrative Service (IAS) was the coal secretary between 1 January 2006 to 30 November 2008 An open fight between a bureaucrat and a politician in Kerala has put the Left Democratic Front (LDF) government in a tight spot The battle between Kozhikode district collector Prashanth Nair and Congress MP MK Raghavan over implementation of projects under the Members of Parliament Local Area Development Scheme (MPLADS) has been raging both online and offline for the last one week It began with the MP seeking an apology from Prashanth for allegedly maligning his image in public for questioning the undue delay in clearing the bills of contractors who had undertaken the projects under the scheme The battle snowballed after the young IAS officer sarcastically responded to the MP’s demand by posting a map of Kunnamkulam a tiny town in Thrissur district known for producing spurious items in his personal Facebook page The word ‘map’ or ‘maap’ in Malayalam means apology Viewing it as an insult to him as well as the people who have elected him Raghavan has urged Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan to take action against the collector He has also lodged a complaint with the privileges committee of the Parliament A file photo of Prashanth Nair Image courtesy: Twitter/@thananjavanv Neither Pinarayi nor Revenue Minister E Chandrashekharan under whom the head of the district functions has responded to the demand even after Congress workers took the fight to the streets However Excise and Labour Minister TP Ramakrishnan said that the government had no intention to intervene in the row The government is apparently finding it difficult to take sides as both the persons who have locked horns are hugely popular While the two-time MP enjoys the support of people cutting across political lines in his constituency (Kozhikode) the collector is a darling of common man especially the new generation The new generation demonstrates their support to Prashanth whom they call ‘collector bro’ mainly through social media With over 25 lakh followers in Facebook alone Prashanth is perhaps one of the most popular district collectors in the social media across the country today The politicians especially the Congress leaders have been accusing him of spending time on social media for the sake of publicity Kozhikode district Congress chief KC Abu said Prashanth was not attending to the problems faced by the people because of being active on social media Prashanth is undeterred by the criticism He told Firstpost that he has been trying to make social media serve the people better He said that his attempt was to make the Facebook page of the district collector as an informal platform of the district administration for citizens to discuss interact and post innovative ideas as well as air their grievances 24×7 “The old way of reaching out to people through notices on the notice boards of village offices is no more the norm when there are technologies to connect with the people directly We have to use this to make the administration more transparent seamless fast and accountable When people are out there in social media we need to be there” says Prashanth The collector has been using the social media not merely to take the administration to people but also to draw ideas from them and ignite collective action for the betterment of all sections of people especially the marginalized sections One such initiative is ‘Compassionate Kozhikode’ a platform he has established to launch projects that can generate and cultivate the spirit of compassion in individuals It now hosts more than 20 initiatives offering innovative crowd sourced solutions to the problems of the people It all started after Prashant visited a mental hospital soon after he assumed charge of the district two years ago He said he was taken aback by the condition in which the patients were lodged The condition was pathetic He was shocked by the lack of even essential materials there “The district administration had limitations in solving the problems Hence I decided to appeal to the goodness of the people through my Facebook page I put out a list of 22 materials including cots bed pans pillows mugs buckets and even nail cutters that it needed immediately The response was tremendous We got more than what we wanted in two weeks” said Prashanth But what encouraged him most was the change in the attitude of people towards the mental care centre following the Facebook post It inspired people from various walks of life and organisations to come forward to help the patients in whatever way they can “This opened my eyes towards the innate goodness among the people I believed that they would express it when opportunities are made available We have now offered a plethora of opportunities for people to show their compassion to fellow human beings with the help of social media” he added The initiatives include ‘Operation Sulaimani’ which ropes in local restaurants and hotels to ensure none of the city’s inhabitants go hungry ‘Savarigiri’ that provides security and dignity to students travelling in public transport and ‘Yo Appooppa’ that seeks to bring comforts to elderly who are living alone Compassionate Kozhikode which is called ‘Project CK’ uses the power of electronic and social media such as Facebook for tapping the compassion of the people Its website puts areas where voluntary services are required The site will provide the details of the requirements of each institution The donor can select from the list and post his readiness in the space provided in the website Project CK does not take money He said that the project was designed in that way to avoid controversies and corruption Those who wish to donate articles such as cot wheel-chair vehicles or refrigerator can directly provide them to the institutions or individuals concerned The project has caught international attention While the last ITB-Berlin has chosen it as one of the 50 inspirational projects from around the world Digital Empowerment Foundation and the Friedrich Naumann Foundation has selected it for the social media for empowerment (SM4E) award Prashanth said that his involvement in the social media was not for publicity or for any other personal gains as alleged by the politicians He said that he was trying to make use of the opportunities it offers to serve the people better He denied ignoring his duties as district collector “Putting a post on Facebook page takes just ten minutes I do this mostly while I am travelling Many think that I am always sitting in front of my device and chatting with people This is not true The people are communicating with me their problems for a solution This is part of the collector’s job” he added Prashanth said the delay in clearing payments to certain projects under Raghavan’s MPLADS was on account of complaints he received regarding the execution of the project He said that he had informed the MP that he will clear the payment only after looking into the complaints “I had no intention to insult anybody by posting the map of Kunnamkulam If this was my intention I could have posted it on my official page I had posted the map on my personal page which is restricted to my family members and friends Nobody has the right to poke their nose into my personal page” he added Biju Govind a senior journalist at Kozhikode said the problem politicians may have with the collector is his swelling popularity He said some of the local politicians may be considering it as threat to them It is learnt that a couple of parties had tried to utilise this by approaching him with an offer to make him a candidate during the polls Biju who regularly interacts with the collector said that Prashanth is one of the few collectors who think out of the box and that he has done a lot for the people of the district Dr Suresh Kumar who works with Prashanth on a palliative care project finds him to be dedicated in whatever he does A senior police officer who had associated with the collector in some projects said the best thing he saw in Prashanth was that he was open to suggestions regardless of the person who made it The officer who did not want to be identified said that this makes working with him comfortable Prashanth said that his main source of inspiration was his mother who is a doctor by profession She taught me not to fear anybody when you do the right things “I believe I am on the right path” he addedAgar woh date calendar may ho? which is rumoured?

World over compulsory licensing is largely a matter of government discretion to be invoked at the government’s pleasure Top News In a dramatic development US industry groups recently claimed the Indian government offered them a “private” assurance that compulsory licences will not be issued save in emergencies and for non-commercial purposes Needless to state such an assurance flies in the face of the Patents Act and the public health safeguards enshrined in it Illustratively Section 84 mandates that a compulsory licence be granted in favour of third parties if the patented invention (such as a drug) is excessively priced or not available sufficiently Relying on this Natco an Indian generic manufacturer applied for India’s first compulsory licence some years ago and convinced the patent office that Bayer’s patented drug for kidney cancer Sorafenib Tosylate was excessively priced and available to hardly 2 per cent of patients In sharp contrast to Bayer’s Rs 28 lakh per month price tag Natco offered to sell its version of the drug at Rs 8800 per month The controller of patents granted a licence upon the payment of a 6 per cent royalty rate to Bayer ensuring this was not a zero-sum game but one that could potentially benefit the patent owner as well given Natco’s knack of selling in markets beyond the ordinary purview of the high-priced patented drug Upon appeal by Bayer the patent office decision was validated with some minor modifications in royalty rates Unfortunately despite this excellent start to the invocation of an important public health safeguard no other licence has been granted since World over compulsory licensing is largely a matter of government discretion to be invoked at the government’s pleasure However in India Section 84 makes clear it’s a legal entitlement that cannot be pimped away through private assurances to foreign friends Rather the government is obliged to adjudicate each application on merit donning its robe as a quasi-judicial authority The patent office must therefore be equipped with personnel vested with a fair degree of adjudicatory competence and independence Unfortunately the functioning of regulatory authorities such as the Drug Controller General of India (DCGI) suggests our government’s record in ensuring its statutory agencies’ independence has been far from fair In view of the fact that our government is yet to issue a public clarification on this private assurance one is not sure if it intended to cover compulsory licensing as a whole Or meant to restrict it to Section 92 a provision enabling the government to notify compulsory licences (of its own accord) on grounds of national emergency extreme urgency or public non-commercial use As such this licensing is distinct from Section 84 and vests the government with considerably more discretion However “discretion” doesn’t mean the government can choose to ignore circumstances that warrant the exercise of discretion Unfortunately while the first kind of licence (Section 84) was granted at least once in the past the government has yet to issue any notification under Section 92 Even as the health ministry appeared keen on triggering this safeguard for a range of cancer cures the commerce ministry played spoilsport It sent a long list of questions asking for “data” on various aspects of the cancers/ numbers of patients etc This seemingly sound list belies a glaring gap in our public health machinery A lot of health data is difficult to come by given that they reside in the sole possession of private parties like hospitals pharmacies and drug companies Consider cancer a near epidemic now Till date there’s no Central law mandating disclosure of data on patients treatment methods drug pricing etc Interestingly the same data deficit was used by the government to deny the most recent compulsory licensing application under Section 84 to Lee Pharma which bid for a licence against AstraZeneca’s Saxagliptin a patented anti-diabetic drug One finds it paradoxical that the only authority with the legal legitimacy to collect and publish health data transfers this onus to private applicants If serious about its constitutional commitment to good health the government must immediately formulate a legal framework to compel private parties to disclose drug and disease data More importantly it must ensure quasi-judicial authorities (the patent office) remain relatively independent and are infused with sufficient training to ensure a fair impartial and competent dispensation of justice Unfortunately this government appears more keen on the private than the public preferring trade to health nepotic control over regulatory independence and American patents over Indian patients It’s a trade-off
