Media multitasking can trigger anxiety

Media multitasking can trigger anxiety

एक नवीन अध्ययन के अनुसार एक ही समय पर जन संचार माध्यमों की एक से ज्यादा किस्में इस्तेमाल 

करने वालों में  मसलन टेलिविजन देखने के साथ साथ जो लोग कम्प्यूटर खेल खेलने का भी कौशल रखतें हैं 

उनमें से ऐसा करते रहने वालों में अवसाद  के साथ साथ बे -चैनी या एन्ग्जायती के  भी लक्षण भी पैदा हो सकते हैं .

मिशिगन स्टेट  यूनिवर्सिटी के मार्क बककर इस अध्ययन के अगुवा रहें हैं .आप हतप्रभ हैं दोनों के बीच यानी 

मीडिया मल्टीटास्किंग और मानसिक स्वास्थ्य सम्बन्धी समस्याओं के बीच एक साफ़ साफ़ अंतर सम्बन्ध 

देख कर .

आप कहतें हैं :

हमें नहीं मालूम असलियत क्या है कहीं ऐसा तो नहीं कि जो लोग अवसाद और बे -चैनी की लपेट में हैं वही तो

दोनों काम एक साथ नहीं कर रहे अपना ध्यान इन समस्याओं से हटाने के लिए .बहर सूरत गत दशक में

अमरीकी युवाओं में संचार माध्यमों उपयोग के मामलों में 20%वृद्धि हुई है .लेकिन इसी दरमियान

मल्टीमीडिया के संग गुज़ारे गए वक्त में वृद्धि की दर 120% रही है .

Our country may be winning the war against HIV ,but young Indians are falling prey to STIs

What is common between UK and India ,other than a shared colonial history ?

It is the recent rise in sexually transmitted infections (STIs) among youngsters ,say sexual health experts.

In England ,the infections were spotted in young people failing to use condoms with new partners ,according to  a 

report by the Health Protection Agency released 

around May this year .

Back home ,the Maharshtra State AIDS Control Society (MSA CS) says the total number of new reported cases of 

STIs ,in the state including Mumbai ,has risen by 

5,328 in just the last one year .Up from 1,34 ,395 in 2011 (men :58,022;women :76,190 )to 1,39 ,753 in 2012 (men 

:50,831;women :88,665).

The numbers ,says Dr Rajan Bhonsle ,head of the department of sexual medicine at KEM Hospital ,could be higher 

since government figures don't account for 

patients at private clinics.


What's worrying is that most patients are oblivious to the infections since symptoms can be masked .Dr I S Gilada 

,president of AIDS Society of India ,says ,in the 

case of herpes simplex virus 2 (HSV2 ),more than half of those affected do not show any symptoms ."Infections appear 

in the form of tiny blisters that are   ignored 

.These can be gradually turn into ulcers ,or disappear within weeks .But this virus has the tendency to recur in  a couple 

of months despite lack of fresh exposure 

warns ,"Gilada.

Stats for 2012 reveal the following infections as the top four in Maharshtra :

 (1)  chlamydia 

(2)  gonorrhea ,

(3) HSV2 and 

(4)human paillomavirus (HPV)


In the last 10 years ,the ease with which Indians have learnt to juggle multiple partners is responsible for the rise in STIs 

,say dermatologists like Dr Manohar H 

Sobhani ."Ironically ,while commercial sex workers are particular about using condoms ,the general populace is not 

,"says Dr Sobhani .He receives more college 

going girls infected with STIs now ,as compared to 10 years ago .

The other hitch is the stigma attached to STIs .Before they know it ,youngsters have transmitted the infection to their 

partner .Mirror columnist and sex  expert Dr 

 Mahinder Watsa receives several such querries from readers ,who complain about blisters and abnormal discharge 

,asking for a quick fix ."Timely treatmnent from 

an expert is crucial in curbing the spread of STIs ,"he says .


One of the most widespread misconception among Indians ,says Dr Bhonsle ,is 

that the use of a condom will provide 

protection against all STIs ."A condom can 

can do only so much ,since it shields just the penis .It does not shield the scrotum 

or skin around the penis ,so what if 

you have a bleeding rash ?"he asks .

Oral sex ,too ,can lead to STIs including HIV.The possibilty of STIs spreading 

through saliva is low among humans

 ,but it is possible ,say doctors."Several people 

bleed every morning when brushing .The blood molecules could get locked 

between the gums and cheek ,and 

release during deep kissing .If the other partner also 

has a cut or gash in the mouth , an STI  can be easily transferred ,"says Dr
