Abstract: Meckel’s diverticulum is not commonly encountered surgical entity and presents unique challenges for a pediatric surgeon, as it is prone to varied complications. A 14-year-old boy was admitted with us with a 48-hour history of lower abdominal pain and multiple episodes of vomiting. Radiological imaging studies revealed a high-grade partial small bowel obstruction. A fleeting conservative management was tried. The diagnostic laparoscopy revealed a small bowel obstruction secondary to a Meckel’s diverticulum. The diverticulum was resected using an endovascular GIA stapler. The patient was discharged on postoperative day four, tolerating a regular diet. Laparoscopy is a useful diagnostic and therapeutic means for a patient with a small bowel obstruction due to an uncertain etiology.

Surgical Science (SS) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ss.2017.81002
Abstract: Background: Kashmir valley, being a known conflict zone keeps on receiving war victims due to scuffles between civilians and the government forces. Such upsurges have been noted in the recent past in 2008 and 2010; however, a new face of upheaval took place in the month of July 2016. Herein, we present an analysis of 500 abdominal trauma victims reported to our department at Government Medical College Srinagar, Kashmir, India. Methods: Government Medical College Srinagar Kashmir is a tertiary care teaching hospital situated in the heart of Kashmir valley. Being one of the referral hospitals, for trauma, we received a total figure of 6149 trauma victims out of which 500 were purely of abdominal in nature managed by the department of surgery. The study conducted was a short analysis of these abdominal trauma patients that reported from 8th July to 8th November 2016. Results: The result of analysis of 500 abdominal trauma patients is reported herein. The male female ratio of patients was 19.8:1 (male = 95.2%, female = 4.8%). The age range was from 5 years to 65 years with majority reported in the age range of 15 - 30 years. The number of bullet injuries was =85 and the pellet injuries were =349. The commonest organs involved were small intestines, spleen, large bowel and liver in descending order. Penetrating injuries were seen in =60.4%, non-penetrating were seen in =39.6%. The patients were grouped into conservative, non operative and operative group. The commonest morbidity observed was wound sepsis and a total mortality reached to a figure of 2%. Conclusion: This short study of analysis of trauma victims has explored the newer horizons of trauma management and we believe and conclude that specialized trauma hospitals with skilled manpower and modern gadgets of handling trauma is need of an hour especially in developing countries like ours.
Human Hair “Waste” and Its Utilization: Gaps and Possibilities
Ankush Gupta
Journal of Waste Management , 2014, DOI: 10.1155/2014/498018
Abstract: Human hair is considered a waste material in most parts of the world and its accumulation in waste streams causes many environmental problems; however, it has many known uses. Preventing waste of such a material requires both addressing the problems in the current usage and developing its utilization systems at locations where they are missing. With focus on developing systematic utilization of human hair waste, this paper first reviews the possible uses of human hair gathered from large scale trades, local/traditional knowledge, upcoming innovations, and scientific research; along with the socioeconomic systems that have evolved around the known uses. Concerns and gaps in these systems are identified and possible directions to address these gaps are discussed. For expanding hair utilization to new contexts, important considerations such as knowledge, skill, and technology requirements and potential markets are discussed. Finally, a policy framework for socially and environmentally healthy utilization of human hair is outlined. This study shows that human hair is a highly versatile material with significant potential in several critical areas such as agriculture, medical applications, construction materials, and pollution control. Moreover, these uses are diverse enough for entrepreneurs ranging from unskilled to highly technical individuals and for the wide variety of human hair waste available in different locations. 1. Introduction Human hair is a material considered useless in most societies and therefore is found in the municipal waste streams in almost all cities and towns of the world [1]. In rural areas or areas with low population density, the hair is thrown away in nature where it slowly decomposes over several years, eventually returning the constituent elements, namely, carbon, nitrogen, sulfur, and so forth, to their respective natural cycles. In urban areas or areas with high population density, it often accumulates in large amounts in the solid waste streams and chokes the drainage systems, posing a multifaceted problem. Due to slow degradation, it stays in the dumps/waste streams for long occupying large volumes of space. Over time, leachate from these dumps increases the nitrogen concentration in the water bodies, causing problems of eutrophication. Burning of human hair or the waste piles containing them—a practice observed in many parts of the world—produces foul odor and toxic gases such as ammonia, carbonyl sulphides, hydrogen sulphides, sulphur dioxide, phenols, nitriles, pyrroles, and pyridines [2]. Open dumps of hair generate
Proof of Legendre's Conjecture
Ankush Goswami
Mathematics , 2012,
Abstract: Legendre's conjecture states that there exists a prime between $n^2$ and $(n+1)^2$, for every positive integer $n$. Here I prove that for sufficiently large $n$, there is a prime number between $n^2$ and $(n+1)^2$. The proof relies on the idea of counting the maximum power, $o_p(n)$ of a prime $p\leq n$ such that $p^{o_p(n)}||n$.

International Journal of Otolaryngology and Head & Neck Surgery (IJOHNS) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ijohns.2013.25041
Abstract: The study was done to review postoperative hearing gain of patients with different Middle Ear Risk Index (MERI) undergoing Tympanomastoidectomies with titanium prostheses reconstruction. A Retrospective chart review was performed from September 2009 to December 2011. Of the 17 cases, 9 had moderate MERI while 8 had severe MERI. 9 patients underwent Tympanomastoidectomy with Total Ossicular Reconstruction Prostheses (TORP) and 8 with Partial Ossicular Reconstruction Prostheses (PORP). Hearing gain of 25.31 dB was achieved in cases with moderate MERI compared to 29.37 dB in severe MERI. Less than 20 dB average air-bone gap was achieved in 75% of PORP and 77.77% of TORP reconstructions. In developing countries with limited resources, decision regarding ossicular reconstruction should be made taking into account MERI, intra operative findings and type of surgery. Best results are achieved in cases of CWD with TORP and ICW with PORP.
Agriculture and its Integration with National Accounts Statistics: The Indian Case
Ankush Agarwal,Arup Mitra
Agricultural Journal , 2013, DOI: 10.3923/aj.2012.343.353
Abstract: This study examines the select domains of database on agriculture in India and its use in the national accounts statistics. Though, the share of agriculture in total value added has declined considerably to less than a quarter at the national level, several states are still agriculture-dependent. Besides, agriculture provides sources of livelihood to more than half of the total work force. Hence, the reliability of agricultural statistics and their integration to national accounts are of great significance from the productivity and sustainability point of view. The study examines the methods and sources used to collect statistics on acreage and yield of agricultural crops and also their limitations. It also discusses evolution of the national accounts statistics in India and treatment of the agriculture sector therein. The study concludes, highlighting some of the problems related to the treatment of the agriculture sector in the national accounts in its present form. In suggesting that the services sector value added has expanded much faster than that in the agriculture sector, many issues such as how well the agriculture sector data compare and can be integrated with the value added originating from the industrial sector or the services sector, need to be tackled very carefully.

PIER M , 2012, DOI: 10.2528/PIERM11110708
Abstract: Concentric ring antenna arrays with the ability to produce dual pattern have many applications in communications and radar engineering. In this paper, we represent a new method for design of an optimized reconfigurable concentric ring array with dual pattern of desired specifications. Here, our goal is to find a suitable common element excitation amplitude distribution and two different element excitation phase distributions for two desired radiation patterns. For this purpose, we have proposed a novel objective function which is completely different from the traditional objective functions usually used in antenna design problems. For the optimization procedure, we have developed a modified Differential Evolution (DE) algorithm, denoted as DE_rBM_2SX, which employs new kinds of crossover and mutation operators to overcome some drawbacks of the classical DE on single-objective fitness landscapes. We consider three types of dual pattern - pencil beam+pencil beam, pencil beam+flat-top beam, flat-top beam+flat-top beam. The simulation results obtained by applying our proposed method clearly indicate that our method is very convenient to obtain radiation patterns of desired specifications. We compare results of the modified DE algorithm with those of another state-of-the-art improved variant of DE, called JADE and a state-of-the-art variant of the Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) algorithm called Comprehensive Learning Particle Swarm Optimizer (CLPSO). Such comparisons reflect that the proposed algorithm is more efficient than JADE or CLPSO in finding optimum configuration of the dual pattern concentric ring array antenna. S

Abstract: Nearly about 70% of the population of the state as well as nation derives livelihood from agriculture and related activities. Among the size of land its use for production of agriculture produce is most wide and very significant for the substance of humanity. From very early times man has been tilling land which is a stock resource. The land use at any given place and time results from decisions based on the interaction of five groups of factors, environmental, technological, economic, social andpolitical.The following research paper highlights the changes of land under various uses for the proceeding of the Shrigonda Taluka of Ahmednagar District. Discussion for the change of volume in five major categories of the land uses, grossed irrigated area and cropping intensity. Area under forest is 9.47%, showing slight decrease (0.62) and 1.08% area not available for cultivation, area under the fallow land increased.Net son area increased from 1999-2000 to 2009-2010.
