I am distressed by the political inclination of the journal reflected in publishing the article by Siddarth David in a recent issue of Indian Journal of Medical Ethics. The journal has tried to redeem its image by publishing a counterview by Ravindra Ghooi. I feel more voices need to be heard on the utter unsuitability of David's comments on the use of pellet guns by security forces in Kashmir in a medical ethics journal.

The article deals with child branding cases that were researched over a period of two years. Child branding practice is a common occurrence in the rural areas of the Kashmir valley where it is often practiced by faith healers [quacks] having no knowledge of underlying disease processes or the possible differentials of the same; leaving treatment protocols a distant possibility for the same. These illiterate so called healers possibly relieve the initial stigmata of the disease process that is pain by many procedures including burning the affected population with hot coals; embers; and various other pain inducing processes...

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is associated with a range of metabolic bone diseases. Fracture rates are higher in CKD patients than age-matched controls throughout all the five stages of CKD. Dialysis patients have 4 times as many hip fractures as expected for their age. CKD forms an independent risk factor for osteoporosis, even in the absence of traditional risk factors. This study was carried out at the nephrology unit in a tertiary care center of Kashmir to know the prevalence of osteoporosis in CKD patients having glomerular filtration rate (GFR) <60 mL/min (stages 3-5)...

BACKGROUND: Kashmir has a population that largely consumes polished rice which is deficient in thiamine. Furthermore, lactating women in this region are prone to severe thiamine deficiency because of their traditional food avoidance practices. Infantile beriberi is common in exclusively breastfed infants of thiamine deficient mothers in Kashmir. METHODS: This was a one year prospective hospital-based study. We included 50 exclusively breastfed infants in our study...

AIM: mesT of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, a hypothetical/putative epoxide hydrolase, is predicted to convert toxic epoxides to the more water-soluble and less toxic diols. Detailed characterization of the protein was carried out. RESULTS: mesT demonstrated esterase as well as epoxide hydrolase activity. It was membrane bound and was upregulated under hypoxic conditions. The enzyme was able to degrade styrene oxide. The presence of antisense against this gene resulted in the inhibition of in vitro bacterial growth/survival in the presence of styrene oxide...

The aim of the study was to explore the physiochemical, cooking, and textural characteristics of 12 traditional rice cultivars grown in Kashmir (India) and develop their interrelationship. The results revealed a significant variation (p ≤ .05) among the different characteristics analyzed on the basis of characteristics evaluated for each cultivar. The novel attributes depicted by these cultivars as reflected includes their higher kernel elongation during cooking, lowest solids in gruel loss and lower adhesiveness together with desirable hardness which can fetches their increasing demand commercially besides having lacerative palatability...
