The troubles of infertility is surely a crucial cause of concern for several couples these days. However, the progress of medical science has brought about new hopes. IBNS correspondent Supriyo Hazra reports

It is perhaps the problem of infertility that disturbs the married couples more than anything else these days. People marry with the hope of expanding their family but when the troubles like infertility deter their smooth flow of life, it becomes painful. However, with the advancement of medical science, the treatment for the disease has become possible these days, although there has been an increase in the number of infertility cases now.

In vitro fertilisation (IVF) is a process by which multiple patients have found out solution to the problem in recent times, and it is very much readily available now.

It is a process by which egg cells are fertilised by sperm outside the body, in vitro. IVF is a major treatment in infertility when other methods of assisted reproductive technology have failed.

Can MNP be game changer? 08/04/2011
Even with a response that is nearly nowhere as groundbreaking as it was initially hype-projected to have by some, mobile number portability services in India have ushered a new era of customer freedom.

Sample this exchange between a disgruntled user, who shares his anguish with his network provider over a short message on Twitter to his about 400 followers, and the carrier that swoops in to appease the customer:

ShravanRN: @VodafoneIN Should i think of MNP or are you going to rectify my problem? Cross connections for 3 weeks . *disgusting*

@VodafoneIN: @ShravanRN Sorry for the inconvenience, we'll get back to you shortly with assistance.

This is corporate ball-busting in the 202nd decade of civilization where the independent user, irrespective of their genuineness of claims, is powerful enough to make a Goliath get down to its knees and ask forgiveness.

So when India's telecom secretary R Chandrasekhar said, "It is the open seas...

Music for peace 08/04/2011
Who says 'fusion music' often fails to impress? That it's more confusion than harmony? Listening to some of the most well-known contemporary violin players of the world at the concert Violins for Peace recently (G D Birla Sabhaghar, Kolkata), these doubts could be put to rest.

Conceived by L. Subramaniam, violin maestro, it brought together violinists from as far as USA, Norway, Algeria and Russia to showcase the versatility of the violin, whether adapted to Indian classical tradition or the gypsy music of Russia.

That music encompasses barriers of language and geographical borders to touch the listeners was once again vindicated at the concert.

UN Benazir report pack of lies: Musharraf aide 08/04/2011
A UN probe report faulting the government of then Pakistani president Pervez Musharraf for the assassination of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto has been termed a "pack of lies" by an aide of the former military dictator.

Speaking to a private TV channel, Major General (retd) Rashid Qureshi pointed out that the UN commission should have pinned the responsibility on the government of that time and not on the presidency.

He also disclosed that according to the investigations conducted after Bhutto's 2007 killing, there were no bullet marks on her head and that 27 pieces of evidence were collected from the assassination spot, Online news agency reported.

Qureshi further pointed out that according to investigation conducted by the law enforcement agencies, then Pakistani Taliban chief Baitullah Mehsud was reported to be accomplice in Bhutto's assassination.

Mehsud was killed in a US drone attack last year.

Qureshi previously headed Pakistan's Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR). After Musharraf stepped down as army chief in November 2007, Qureshi became the president's spokesman and continues to be so even after Musharraf quit office in August 2008.

Kenya: Taxpayers fight back 08/04/2011
Michael Otieno Oloo, a 35-year-old political science lecturer and anti-corruption activist, is emerging as an unlikely central figure in Kenya's parliament.

He isn't an MP and has no plans to run as one. But a series of reports he devised, which investigated development projects funded by taxpayers' money, have become a tool in fighting corruption in the government.

Dubbed Citizens Report Cards, these documents were published just weeks before the 2007 elections and revealed to the Kenyan public for the first time how MPs were spending their taxes. The results were quite shocking. Incomplete or abandoned projects, contracts and jobs given to family members and funds used for campaigning were just some examples of the corruption, mismanagement and incompete...
