Each one of us represents an ecosystem wherein the human body and its bacterial buddies support each other Apart from challenging our sense of identitythis marks a radical transformation in our understanding of bugs and the medical approach to health and disease Our bodily functions are controlled not only by the 23000 genes carried by our cells but also by the 3 million genes carried by the microbiome It appears that the composition of the microbiome is distinctive to each person and varies even between identical twins Since the expression of both human and bacterial genes can be altered by a variety of human behaviourwe need to understand how the composition and function of this vast gene pool alters over a humans lifetime Twentieth century medicine taught us to fear and fight bacteria The germ theory of disease dominated medical thinking and antibiotics became our principal weapon of warfare against real and perceived bacterial invasions Even the lay person was conditioned to think of bacteria as threats whose presence in the human body spelt danger One only has to see the frequent toothpaste ads on televisionexhorting us to exterminate all bacteria from the mouthto realise how the fear of bacteria is relentlessly instilled and reinforced in the human mind Recent scientific know-how says that while there are indeed bacteria that can produce disease under certain conditionsthere are also classes of bacteria that are part of our very existence They help us to resist and fight dangerous infections caused by other bacteriamake some essential vitaminsboost our immunityprotect us from allergies and assist us in digesting food that cannot be broken down by the enzymes produced by our body Disruptions of the microbiome can lead to harmful health effects

about the specific effect of each food on a persons microbiome Even as modern science spectacularly advances our understanding of human biologymodern medicine can benefit from working with other systems of medicine whose accumulated observational wisdom seems to provide intuitive insights into maintaining health rather than just treating disease In the 21st centurymedicine has to evolve through greater recognition of and respect for the interdependence of life forms and take into account the effects of both the microenvironment and the macroenvironment on human health and disease As

complaint filed by the principal For all the latest Ludhiana News download Indian Express App More Top NewsFrom the first two speeches in the debate around the Goods and Services Tax (GST) Bill introduced in the Rajya Sabha on Wednesday one thing became instantly clear: the aggressive name-calling and political finger-pointing between the Bharatiya Janata Party and the Congress party may have got a temporary reprieve but the intense haggling over the provisions of the GST regime is going to continueFormer Union finance minister and Congress leader P Chidambaram with Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley PTI Finance Minister Arun Jaitley gave the first official hint about the thaw over the GST Bill when he told a television channel hours before introducing the Bill in the Rajya Sabha that the Congress was never principally against the GST He followed it up shortly by thanking the Congress and acknowledging that the GST Bill was originally a Congress baby while introducing the Bill Former finance minister P Chidambaram who was the first to speak from the Congress benches started by thanking Jaitley for the friendly tone set by the ruling party "in the last two weeks" and said his party hoped that the Constitution (122nd) Amendment Bill will be passed by the House after the debate indicating clearly that his party would not stand between the country and its most important indirect tax reform Thus on the face of it conciliation seemed to be the mood of the House But Chidambaram’s speech did indicate that even if the Bill is passed by the Rajya Sabha as indeed it might the GST debate will just get postponed not settled Chidambaram spoke for most part about the GST rate All this while the Congress party insisted that the GST rate should be capped at 18 percent It also wanted that this rate be mentioned in the Constitution Amendment Bill so that no government could increase it by a mere executive order The Bill introduced by Jaitley on Wednesday does not mention the GST rate so to that extent the Congress has yielded But Chidambaram pointed out that does not mean the Congress has given up the demand either for capping the GST rate at 18 percent or for enshrining it in the law This will come up again Chidambaram said when "three months later you will have to come back to the House to pass the Integrated GST Bill" (Today Rajya Sabha is debating the GST Constitutional Amendment Bill that introduces the concept of an all-encompassing pan-India indirect tax It will empower the Centre and the states to levy GST This amendment will pave the way for the Integrated GST law that will have to be passed by Parliament setting out the details of the GST regime rates and how the revenue will be shared between the Centre and the states) At that time Chidambaram almost taunted Jaitley the government will have to inscribe the GST rate into the law because "no tax bill will stand legal scrutiny if it does not mention the rate of taxation" Defending his party’s stand that the GST rate must be set at 18 percent Chidambaram said they did not pluck the 18 percent out of thin air "We got it from the report of the chief economic advisor to this government" Chidambaram painted a scary picture of a future government hiking the GST rate to 23 or 24 percent and warned that it is too risky an inflationary tool to leave in the hands of the executive without having to go through the legislature So it is clear that the Congress is still pretty set on two things that it has always wanted: one the rate should not be more than 18 percent and two it should be mentioned in the law so that it cannot be tinkered with at executive whim It was apparent though that the Congress has made two concessions maybe because it was under political and public pressure not to stop an important reform The first is to let the Constitution Amendment Bill go through without hitch and to slightly dilute its position on the rate While earlier the Congress was arguing for a ‘cap’ on the GST rate at 18 percent Chidambaram was consistently talking about "standard rate" That is while it earlier wanted a freeze on the rate so that future governments can’t increase the rate it is now willing to consider a base rate which may be changed but only through the legislature not the executive But the sting was in the tail For all the apparent mood of conciliation Chidambaram cleverly foreclosed an option for the Narendra Modi government to pass the Integrated GST Bill Extending all cooperation for passing the Bill at hand Chidambaram sought an assurance from Jaitley that the government would not resort to a legislative sleight of hand to pass the Integrated GST Bill "Hopefully after this debate the Constitution Amendment Bill will be passed" Chidambaram said "But we need an assurance from the government that when the bring the GST Bill they will bring it as a finance bill not a money bill If we have that assurance we will help pass this Bill" he said This is important The states do not want the 18 percent standard rate to be mentioned in the law The Congress is insisting So if the Constitution Amendment Bill is passed today the NDA government might have been tempted to bring the Integrated GST Bill as a money bill A money bill can become law if passed by the Lok Sabha whereas a finance bill has to be passed by both the Lok Sabha (where the government has the numeric strength) and the Rajya Sabha (where the government doesn’t have the numbers) The Modi government used this trick to outwit the Congress by introducing the Aadhaar Bill as a money bill By insisting that the Congress will pass the GST Constitution Amendment Bill only if Jaitley assures the House that the future bill will be brought to the Rajya Sabha Chidambaram has forced Jaitley’s hands If Jaitley does not give the assurance Congress might still hold out on the current bill and if he does give the assurance he might end up where he began on the debate over some of the crucial provisions of the GST regime So even if the Constitutional Amendment Bill is passed today it’s not over till it is over The GST fight it seems has just been deferred by a few months The Union government’s decision to redrawthe geographical expanse of the Red Corridor seems to be guided by strategic reasons There is a feeling in the higher echelons of the government
