Mumbai | Published: December 7 2017 2:16 am The FOB built at a cost of Rs 135 crore connects the island platform at the station to Currey Road West Ganesh Shirsekar Top News A suburban railway station in the city is set to have two foot overbridges (FOBs) one each to connect to the east and the west of the station to its island platform The Currey Road station on Central Railway will have one FOB constructed by the Railways and the other by the Army to connect the west and east respectively Suburban stations in the city mostly have end-to-end bridges with connectivity to platforms from both sides As the presence of two FOBs in each station is mandatory commuters can choose the bridge through which they wish to enter and exit the station The popular eastern suburban railway station sees heavy footfall during the morning and evening peak hours owing to the presence of many offices and industries in the area Construction of a new FOB began at the Currey Road station in 2016 Until then it had only one road overbridge at the Parel-end The FOB constructed at a cost of Rs 135 crore sanctioned by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) connects the island platform at the station to Currey Road West It is 366 m wide and approximately 21 meter long The new FOB connects the station to the west It lands inside a public playground and mainly caters to office goers heading to and from N M Joshi Marg Officials from the BMC and the railways said the extension plan of the bridge to the east of the station was ruled out after its landing overlapped on a joggers’ park developed by the civic body Allowing commuters to pass through the park could have interfered with the facility BMC officials said “The bridge would have been used on a continuous basis by commuters On the east the bridge demanded a landing inside the park which could have affected the recreational activities of those using the park We suggested that the railways build an alternative bridge at the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSMT)-end of Currey Road station that would connect both the east and west But the suggestion was ruled out” a senior BMC official said Shiv Sena MP Arvind Sawant claimed that the construction of another bridge at Currey Road station was a long-standing demand “I had suggested that the railways make a bridge at the station from CSMT end which could also be connected to both sides of the station I further suggested the railways make another bridge which could connect the Lalbaug area to the station The one being made by the Army is that FOB” Sawant said Speaking about the FOB built by the railways connecting the west a senior railway official said: “The need to give an alternative bridge to the station was urgent Thus work for making the railway bridge at Currey Road station started in 2016 The work is complete and the bridge is likely to be commissioned within a week” The bridge to be made by the Army will be 30 m long and it would connect the island platform to the east that has its landing on private land Last week the railways paid Rs 5 crore to the land owner to use the space for the landing The total cost of the bridge is Rs 39 crore It is likely to be commissioned by January 31 2018 But commuters at Currey Road station have expressed concern over the need to construct two bridges “A lot of commuters use the existing FOB at Currey Road We do not know if the other bridge constructed by the Army will have a ticket booking office If not then we will have to walk up to the other two bridges to take tickets and then use the platforms” Santosh Bhosale a Ganapati idol maker who stays in Lalbaug said Rajesh Barbare another commuter said: “The new railway bridge has not been commissioned yet If commuters are made aware of the two directions of the bridges then perhaps it would not be an issue” Railway minister Goyal during his visit to Mumbai last week had suggested that the two FOBs at Currey Road must be connected But railway officials have advised against it as it could lead to a surge in the crowd on the bridge “If the two bridges get connected commuters who are not bonafide (ticket users) would also get to use the bridge for commuting between the two sides Two separate bridges divert the crowd in two directions disallowing commuters from using a single bridge” a senior railway official said S Kori the chief engineer (bridges) BMC said: “I will suggest to the railways to make a connection between the two bridges as that can see maximum use A bridge must have end-to-end connection Not making a deck does not serve the purpose” For all the latest Mumbai News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: Express Web Desk | Updated: July 23 2017 11:02 pm England beat India by nine runs in the World Cup

you to Dr Homi Bhabha Road near the southern tip of Colaba The roundabout called Vijay Chowk leads to the Colaba Military Station and also marks the east end of the road In the west the road ends just before it can touch the sea The road is named after Indian nuclear physicist Homi Jehangir Bhabha whose brainchild Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR) is located at its western end On his return to India after completing his education in London Bhabha sought financial help from JRD Tata for setting up a scientific research institute and established TIFR in 1945 He contributed immensely to development of nuclear weapons and atomic energy in India It was after his death in 1966 that the road on which the institution lies was named after him “After India’s independence Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru had a vision for the development of science in the nation and Homi Bhabha played an important role in fulfilling it In the 1950s India was one of the first countries to have a nuclear energy programme” says HC Pradhan former director of Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education Apart from several multi-storeyed residential quarters for the defence staff the road located in Old Navy Nagar has several important military buildings which are barred to civilians Farrokh Jijina a resident of Colaba Causeway recalls that Dr Homi Bhabha Road four decades ago was quite different from what it is today “The gates that one sees on the road today were not there then and we were free to visit all the buildings We felt the restrictions first during the India- Pakistan War of 1971 when civilians were not allowed to enter the area Now most of the area is restricted” he says Going down memory lane he says “Before the name Navy Nagar was popularised the whole area was called ‘Holiday Camp’ During the British era soldiers used to be sent here to recuperate from war injuries INHS Asvini the naval hospital was earlier the sanatorium for soldiers to heal” “There were lots of leafy trees and it was a completely green area Youngsters frequented the place for three reasons — to learn to cycle to polish driving skills or to find a cozy corner with a lover The trees provided plenty of shade and a cool breeze We wouldn’t feel the heat even when we used to cycle in the summer” While most of the area has changed the trees have stood the test of time and it is just as Jijina recalls Tall trees still line both sides of the road and provide the tired pedestrian a shady path A thick banyan tree stands somewhere in the centre of the road witness to the ever changing face of the area The road has several historic structures nearby such as the Colaba Barracks where it is rumoured that Winston Churchill stayed for a few days Several religious structures such as the Afghan Church St John’s Church and Seth Jeejeebhoy Dadabhoy Agiari are at a stone’s throw from the road For the entertainment of the defence staff and other civilians in the area there is Sena Cinema on Nanabhai Moos Marg Jijina recalls watching several Rajesh Khanna films in this theatre “I used to be sent on Thursdays to get tickets from the cinema for my whole family We have watched several Rajesh Khanna films here like Aan Milo Sajana and Haathi Mere Saathi” Jijina remembers a time when only two bus routes would ply the area — bus number 3 and 43 While today there are several bus routes plying here in a

many people to talk (to) in our village” said 50-year-old Gaman Gavit a farmer from Girmal village near Girmal falls a tourist spot in South Gujarat’s Dang district 400 kilometres from the state’s capital Gandhinagar Two of his four sons migrated to Surat district and Maharashtra to help feed his family of 15 said Gavit who owns four acres of land on which he grows rice nagali (finger millet) and vagai (sorghum) About 50 truckloads of people migrate from his village after every monsoon as there are few alternatives to farming he told IndiaSpend As much as 75% of Dang’s population lives under the poverty line of Rs 356 per person a month in villages and Rs 538 per person in cities and the district struggles to succeed under Gujarat’s development model In this primarily tribal district–98% belong to the scheduled tribes–481% of children under five years were stunted 722% of women were anaemic and only 443% of children under two were fully immunised according to the latest National Family Health Survey of 2015-16 (NFHS-4) even as the district has made investments in health infrastructure The neonatal intensive unit in Ahwa Civil Hospital has ten warmers and five attending nurses IndiaSpend And it is not just Dang Gujarat ranked fifth by per capita income in the country is ranked 17 among 29 states on infant mortality with 34 of every 1000 infants dying every year worse than much poorer Meghalaya (30) and lower than India’s average infant mortality rate (IMR: deaths per 1000 births) of 41 as IndiaSpend reported in November 2017 Its neighbouring state of Maharashtra has been able to reduce stunting wasting in children and improve the health of its mothers while Gujarat has struggled The data present a conundrum: In spite of industrialisation rising incomes and investment in infrastructure health outcomes are poor and there are not enough jobs for the growing population–in India 280 million will need jobs between now and 2050 the year when the working-age population (15 to 64 years) will peak IndiaSpend reported in May 2016 This population will have to be healthy and educated to be productive “Gujarat never lacked political will to make health a priority” said Somashekhar Nimbalkar head of the department of paediatrics at the Pramukhswami Medical College in Karamsad Gujarat “What it lacked is bureaucrats and administrators who would study the problems and offer solutions to political leaders” While bridges and providing good water supply can rapidly improve and show results health programmes need long-term planning and take time to reap benefits Solutions need to come from the people working on the ground who understand local issues rather than from high powered committees in locations of power he explained As Gujarat goes to polls on 9 December and 14 December 2017 IndiaSpend visited half a dozen villages in Dang district–one of the six most backward districts of Gujarat–to understand where India and Gujarat’s development model fell short Even as Gujarat has grown industrially a lack of jobs forces people to migrate from Dang and people don’t access the same benefits they would have accessed in their hometown it is

poverty line Most people in Dang are dependent on rain-fed subsistence farming of rice millet and pulses Agricultural productivity here is low with 31% of the area under cultivation and 13% of it irrigated according to a 2013 study by the Aga Khan rural support programme an Indian non-profit In Subir and Waghai blocks of Dang 48% to 60% of the households migrate seasonally after the monsoon the study found A lack of local employment opportunities in Dang combined with insufficient income forced people to fall in debt traps and migrate to pay off loans to local mukkardams or labour contractors After repaying the mukkardam there is little money left to send back said Gavit of Girman village two of whose sons had migrated for work “There are no jobs here only outsiders come and work here” said Yohan Thakrey 18 from the same village People from other parts of Gujarat work as teachers or government employees while locals work as agricultural labourers and have to migrate to find jobs he said As people move in search of work they leave behind government benefits they would have received in Dang adversely affecting their health Aadhaar which provides a unique identification number to every Indian was formed in part to ensure that people do not lose such benefits when they move but implementations gaps remain The district’s successes: Clean adequately staffed health centres When IndiaSpend visited the health sub-centre at Dhawlidod Ayurveda Yoga Naturopathy Unani Siddha Homeopathy (AYUSH) doctor Priyanka Patel was in the outpatient department (OPD) Under the Arogya Setu programme of the government launched to set-up a dispensary in each village doctors conduct a general OPD in sub-centres two days a week she said Like most other sub-centres in

facilities at Ahwa have come a long way” said Usha Valand the auxiliary nurse and midwife who has been working at the Ahwa Civil Hospital since 1998 The hospital was rebuilt two years ago Far more women have institutional deliveries now and there is awareness about immunisation she said She showed us the cold storage for vaccines that could be monitored ‘from Delhi’ in order to preserve it at the right temperature The hospital had two paediatricians one orthopaedic and one dental surgeon working when we visited It also had a neonatal intensive unit with ten warmers and five attending

The out-patient department at the Ahwa Civil Hospital IndiaSpend “I am focussed on improving the immunisation cover” said Megha Mehta the district’s new health officer “A month ago 89% of the children under one year were fully immunised; in the last one month it has improved to 99%” These numbers are from e-Mamta–a mother and child tracking system of the Gujarat government It is based on pregnancies registered in this system and may miss other institutional deliveries and deliveries that do not happen in a health care centre Overall in Dang district 443% of children under two years were fully immunised in 2015-16 according to central government data compared to the India average of 62% “A month ago 89% of the children under one year were fully immunised; in the last one month it has improved to 99%” Megha Mehta Dang district’s new health officer told us IndiaSpend Not all health centres are as good At Garkhadi primary health centre (PHC) there was no telephone connection or mobile phone network which means the parked ambulance is put to little use By January there is little water left in the village When IndiaSpend visited the PHC around 5 pm there was no doctor Medical officers find the living quarters in the PHC unfit to stay so they commute from bigger towns and there is rarely a doctor available after 5 pm according to the accountant and the security staff at the PHC IndiaSpend was unable to reach a doctor for comment Little emphasis on tribal health In spite of the good health infrastructure and health resources Dang has one of the worst health indicators in the state One of the reasons could be that tribal populations–about 15% of Gujarat’s population is tribal compared to 8% of the Indian population–have lower access to such services Poor women belonging to scheduled tribes were 532 times less likely to use antenatal care (ANC) services than the non-poor from other castes a 2013 study that analysed the use of ANC among young mothers in a district-level health survey found Even non-poor scheduled tribe women were 237 times less likely to use the service than other castes the study found “It is not enough to focus on adjusting the health system Even introducing and strengthening ‘demand-side’ interventions designed to encourage use of maternal health services such as conditional cash transfers and voucher schemes will not be enough to affect changes in use of services in some groups More comprehensive structural changes are needed to address other factors such as gender and social norms political influence corruption and discrimination” the study noted Still medical colleges in Gujarat including the department of community medicine is apathetic towards tribal health initiatives according to Kandarp Talati the director of Promotion of Action Research Foundation for Diffusion of Innovations which works in the tribal district of Dahod in Gujarat “There is very little health counselling and health messaging adapted to local practices and customs For example health workers talk about breastfeeding within one hour of birth but do not mention that mothers should refrain from giving goat milk which is a prevalent practice here” he explained “We found ASHAs not using their knowledge in their own households so they also failed in communicating the messages in their communities” said Nimbalkar who along with Talati conducted a study on the level of knowledge of health workers Migration makes it difficult to track women children Entire families migrate for work from Dang making it difficult for Anganwadi workers to track their children’s immunisation schedule and for ASHAs to register pregnancies Large scale seasonal migration of entire households forces children to join the labour force at the age of six to seven years and they leave school to become full-fledged labourers by the age of 11-12 years and girls have to take care of younger siblings and do household chores according to a 2013 study on children of migrant labourers from Dang Children miss out on school years receive no immunisation no nutritious food and spend time in unsafe work environments the study noted Difficult to access higher levels of schooling In 2016 748% of men in Dang were literate compared to 857% in India and 569% of women were literate compared to 684% in India But only 163% of women in 2015-16 had more than ten years of education according to data from NFHS-4 compared to 357% in India A child born to a mother who can read is 50% more likely to survive past five years of age and each year of mother’s schooling decreases the probability of infant mortality by 5-10% according to a 2011 report by the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization While local schools have residential facilities for children whose parents migrate the village of Girmal where Gavit lives only has a government primary school Gavit said he spent Rs 6000 to get one of his grandchildren in the school at Pipaldahad a nearby village Now he doesn’t have the money to educate his 14-year-old granddaughter and 15-year-old grandson Fifty-year-old Gaman Gavit a farmer from Girmal village spent Rs 6000 to get one of his grandchildren in the school at Pipaldahad a nearby village Girmal only has a government primary school IndiaSpend “The teachers (in local schools) aren’t locals They stay in towns like Dharampur and Wajda and travel two hours to reach the village By the time they reach here they are exhausted so they aren’t keen to teach” said grocery shop-owner Sanjay Raut 37 from Gaodahad village
