Bank Clerks' Exam
Directions (Q. 1-15): Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it. Certain words/phrases are printed in bold to help you locate them while answering some of the questions. A research report published by a reputed international organisation states that one-fourth of the women who die in the world today are Indian. The report adds that the situation in the country was very grave during the last two decades of this century as the deaths were mostly due to malnutrition and diseases. Despite this fact, it is found that the media is indifferent to building public awareness in this regard. From a month-long study of newspapers and periodicals, it was clear that there was no deliberate, systematic or sustained effort to sensitise the public by investigative and factual coverage on women. It was also found that meagre coverage, not more than one per cent, was related to issues of women education, liberation etc, but not with survival and development. The rural woman is hardly figured in the media, so says the report. The expectant mothers are undernourished, anaemic and hence they give birth to children who are handicapped. These children do not receive prenatal care. Even if such children survive, four to six months later they become susceptible to diarrhoea, respiratory or other infections because of insufficient nutrition, incomplete immunisation and improper treatment. The result is that by the time such children reach 3 years of age, they start showing signs of wasting. They do not grow to their full mental and physical potential. Unfortunately, the bias against girl babies still continues. In the slum areas in India's metropolitan cities, there still exists a bias against immunisation of baby girls. The report expresses a feeling that a social awareness and not merely laws could provide women with the protection and the facilities they deserve. 1.
