Yet,news about kidney black-marketeeringis common the outrage involving poor illiterate patients duped of their organs for paltry sums of money or cash-strapped donors parting with their kidneys in exchange for meagre compensation Such largescale scandals highlight the economic disparityin the country However another widely prevalent skew in kidney donation — gender disparity — is just as shocking when the bald numbers are scanned Doctors at Narayana Health a large Bangalore-headquartered hospital chain run by well-known cardiac surgeon Devi Shetty found that an overwhelming 65 per cent of kidney donors in its hospitals are women whereas 70 per cent of kidney recipients are male Kidney donation is a medically proven safe process that has no bearing on a person’s lifespan Yet a combination of economic social and cultural factors as well as coercion tilts these statistics against women The pressure on the woman to donate her organ is so extreme that in order to rescue the reluctant woman nephrologists like Vincent Lloyd head of department and senior consultant Nephrology of Narayana Hospitals are sometimes impelled to summon the family and state that the woman is “medically unfit” to make the kidney donation When a woman confides in the social worker or doctor that she is being forced to donate her organ against her will doctors have learned to come up with reasons on the unsuitability of the particular donor Both men and women are equally susceptible to renal disease but of every 100 kidney transplants that Narayana conducts 65 to 70 donors are women and 70 recipients are men says a recent study released by its nephrologists Voluntary kidney donations are classified “altruistic” but are neither voluntary nor altruistic in some cases The numerical pattern weighing against the female gender predictably repeats in other hospitals including in corporate hospital chains catering to the well-heeled not just in Bangalore but in cities across the country The predominant donor is the wife of the recipient but other female relatives such as sister mother and grandmother and even mother-in-law are called into the equation to give a new lease of life to their male relatives “The pressure is much more when the women are uneducated financially dependent living with their in-laws and having no financial or other support from their parents’ side” says Lloyd If the woman is young employed and has the support of her parents she could stand up and refuse the organ donation but such cases are rare he said The social and familial pressure on women to donate is immense The pressure stems from women feeling more responsible for the welfare of the family Mothers and sisters counted for the most frequent donors after the wives Role compulsions such as “My husband/ brother/ son is more important than me” create pressure and cultural stereotyping of the sacrificial role played by the wife/ mother/ sister plays an important role in the woman’s “altruism” says Usha Bapat a psychiatric social worker who has worked for decades in the field of renal transplants at St John’s Hospital and is now a consultant at Jain Hospital “It is culturally ingrained in Indian women that they have to sacrifice” says Bapat She knows of divorced widowed or otherwise financially dependent women feeling obliged to repay their families by donating their kidneys It all boils down to the social complexities that Indian women have to live with says Narayana’s Lloyd which felicitated five kidney donors this week all women In some renal transplant programmes in India women outnumber men as kidney donors by a ratio of 6:1 he said Narayana wants to raise awareness on this by collating and disseminating the numbers In general gender inequity is widely prevalent in India when it comes to access to medical care In complicated diseases like renal failure men are much more likely to arrive at hospitals to receive medical attention than women Even if diagnosed women fail to show up for treatment because kidney haemodialysis is an expensive process That also makes women less likely to receive dialysis treatments and gives them even slimmer chances of receiving renal transplants For instance studies in neighbouring Andhra Pradesh show worse trends for women in both dialysis and transplantsThe only exceptions are in the case of the kidney sale scandals Here a majority of the donors are men and a majority of the recipientstoo are men Women who confide their circumstances to social workers during personal interviews fear lifelong repercussions for refusing to donate their organ “We have to deal with this very delicately” says Bapat So that she does not get blamed and shamed for the rest of her life the woman declaresin front of the family “Oh I wish I could have given my kidney” saritharai@expressindiacom For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Mahender Singh Manral | New

failure there are only a few who bounce back after taking necessary lessons from it Bollywood’s undisputed king Shah Rukh Khan undoubtedly is one of the few who took his experiences of failure seriously and defeated it with his dedication and hard work The man who gives his children best of everything — be it education luxury or any other thing didn’t have any toys to play with in his childhood Did you know this So much has been said and written about the King of Romance but still his every interview becomes a revelation for his fans Recently the Fan actor got into a conversation with GQ magazine and revealed his various encounters with failure First failure I remember running a 100-metre race in school (at St Columba’s Delhi) against boys who were a little older than me Till that point I’d been running with boys my age and I was used to being in the lead In that race though I came fifth out of six or seven boys As soon as the race was over the school officials rushed over to the winners and whisked them off to the podium There were people around but no one came to me It was the emptiest feeling More from the world of Entertainment: Difference between failure and success The only difference is that success comes with confetti and streamers; failure is that corner you go back to You deal with it and then you wake up and start all over again It’s a process of emotional detoxification Failure is something you face alone Success has a lot of masters friends and well-wishers But failure is lonely Still it’s just as textured as a success Also read |Shah Rukh

humble and focused But I think we say these things to make ourselves feel better because the truth is failure feels like crap But it’s also inevitable I play with my kids’ toys as I never had any during my childhood I’m 51 I lost my dad when I was 14 or 15 and my mother when I was 25 That void never gets filled If you lose your parents too early you have to grow up too fast You can’t play with

playing the second longest women’s singles badminton match in this points format at 110 minutes managed the impossible At a brimming Emirates Arena in Glasgow they stilled a charged-up crowd into absolute silence playing one of the greatest matches in the history of the World Championships Shot for shot rally after rally the pair of 22-year-olds had a magnetic hold over a stadium packed with 5000 people in the course of a 21-19 20-22 22-20 win for the Japanese player in the final All the drum-beating the clapping and the slogans slowly fell quiet as the shots took centrestage with the two athletic fighters banking on their breathtaking levels of precision and stamina In the end the Indian hearts may been broken and accepting that a slightly better player won will take some time But no one at the Glasgow coliseum was left unmoved by what unfolded: two girls defying gravity on a shuttle for as long as their arm and leg muscles and the willpower in their hearts allowed The longest rally had an astonishing 73 shots The next two best rallies were over 50 shots — all won by Sindhu who retrieved bravely till the last time she fell to a sliced drop It wasn’t a slugfest of simple tosses — both Nozomi and Sindhu packed in stupendous variety at the net and from the mid-court to draw gasps of wonder more than once Incidentally the longest women’s singles match ever in this format has also featured Okuhara who beat Chinese Shixian Wang in Malaysia in 2015 in 111 minutes “Everyone wants to win a gold medal That last moment changed everything” said Sindhu after the Indian hit two tired returns into the net to be felled by the second match point But she had played out of her skin through the match subjecting her 5’11 body to enormous strain as she refused to let Okuhara who was equipped with better strokes to run away with the match Taller of the two and with a higher centre of gravity that makes these long rallies more exhausting for her Sindhu threw everything she had into this match yet fell short The Rio Olympics finals had heralded Sindhu’s emergence and caught India’s imagination though the silver had been a happier culmination of her maiden Games At Glasgow having already won two bronze and starting as the higher seeded player this silver would have hurt Sindhu had slept at 2 am after her semifinal Saturday and said it will be difficult to sleep for days if she keeps thinking about what happened in this match On Sunday she simply had no fuel left in the tank shuffling front and back trying to keep all the shuttles in And yet the day ended in a fabulous World

seventh seed Carlos Quipo of Ecuador in his second-round bout in Hamburg on Sunday The Indian prevailed in a unanimous verdict to make the last-eight stage of the light flyweight 49kg category at the Sporthalle in Hamburg It was an assured performance by the Asian Championships bronze-medallist who is enjoying a breakthrough year at the senior level The 21-year-old didn’t look in any awe of his rival’s higher seeding and frustrated him with his counter-attacks Quipo hardly looked the part of a seeded boxer and was cautioned several times for failing to keep his head up Hitting straight and clean Amit was markedly the better boxer and the judges ruled in his favour unanimously Earlier Manoj Kumar drew from his huge reservoir of experience while Kavinder Bisht relied on sheer tenacity for hard-fought opening victories Manoj defeated Moldovan Vasilii Belous 3-2 in an exhausting welterweight (69kg) contest Kavinder on the other hand edged past Japan’s Ryusei Baba in a similarly draining flyweight (52kg) bout which ended 3-2 in his favour However there was slight disappointment too as Asian Games bronze-medallist Satish Kumar (+91kg) bowed out of the competition after losing his opening contest to Azerbaijan’s two-time world champion Mahammadrasul Majidov 5-0 The Indian was slightly under the weather going into Sunday’s contest having suffered a bout of viral fever before coming in Hamburg Kavinder was the first to take the ring for the country which had all its bout in the evening session for the second day in a row The Asian Championships quarter-finalist started rather cautiously and spent the opening three minutes getting a measure of his opponent However Kavinder’s approach allowed Baba to land some clear blows giving him the early advantage Kavinder however made a quick recovery and became the aggressor in the second round His right hooks connected quite well and disturbed Baba’s rhythm Kavinder upped the ante further in the final three minutes to get the decisive nod from the judges in his favour Kavinder will next be up against third-seeded Algerian Mohamed Flissi Flissi is a two-time World Championships medallist having bagged a silver in 2013 followed by a bronze in the 2015 edition Manoj was the next man in and in complete contrast to Kavinder he gave it his all in the first two rounds The 31-year-old former Commonwealth Games gold-medallist was in his elements from the word go and used his reach to good effect against Belous The faltering Moldovan had little or no response to offer in the first two rounds and resorted to throwing wild swings at the Indian However the burst did tire out Manoj in the last round and Besoul tried to grab the advantage at this stage However Manoj had done the job by then to ensure that the final verdict went in his favour “Both Manoj and Kavinder had tough bouts in a very different way But they knew how to maneuver and they did just that” India’s Swedish coach Santiago Nieva told PTI after the two bouts “The results have been good so far but there is a long way to go” he added Awaiting Manoj in the second round is fourth-seeded Venezuelan Gabriel Maestre Perez Perez had won a
