Despite of differences of background and period from which each leader belongs, their style interlocked to each other in some or other sense. 1.1 Present Scenario:The fruition of Indian society and its culture has continued its path along with the march of time.

The Council of Ministers is collectively responsible to the LokSabha.

Shiv Sena in Maharashtra, BahujanSamaj Party and Samajwadi Party in Uttar Pradesh and All India Forward Block in West Bengal are the prominent state parties. Till date Fourteen LokSabhas have been constituted. Excluding for the short-lived Sixth and Ninth LokSabha, the Congress Party ruled the country majorly. The Sixth Lok Sabha worked for about two years and four months and the Ninth Lok Sabha was in rule for one year and two months. Even in the states, the regional parties or the non-congress parties have gained in importance over these years. The renowned leaders among this loksabha’s were Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, Ms. Indira Gandhi, Mr. Moorarjee Desai, Mr. Rajiv Gandhi, Mr. V.P.Singh, Mr. AtalBihari Vajpayee, Mr. P.V.NarshimaRao, Mr. Pranab Mukherjee and Mr. LalkrishnaAdvani.. Each of these leaderswas effective in their style and overcome obstacles of their time to bring changes in political system. 4.1. Mr. NarendraModi: Mr. NarendraModi was born on 17 September 1950 in a middle-class family in Vadnagar in Mehsana district of Ahemdabad (with in Bombay state at that time), India. He is a vegetarian. He completed his schooling in Vadnagar. He earned a master’s degree in political science from Gujarat University. 4.1.1 Personality: Mr. Modi is known for leading a frugal lifestyle. He has a personal staff of three. He is known to be a workaholic and an introvert. Despite of being face of HINDUTAV, he ordered the demolition of many illegal Hindu temples that were built without proper government sanction which earned him the ire of VHP. 4.1.2 Career: During the Indo-Pak war in the mid-sixties, even as a young boy, he volunteered to serve the soldiers in transit at railway stations.As a young man, he joined the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad, a student organization and was involved in the anti-corruption NavNirman Movement. After working as a full-time organizer for the organization, he was later nominated as its representative in the BJP.In 2001; he was elected as Chief Minister of Gujarat succeeding to Keshubhai Patel. But he was asked to resign in 2002. In resultant election he won the elections with 127 seats from 182 seats in state assembly. In 2007, he won election against Sonia Gandhi with his hi-charge speeches and continued the post of CM. In 2011, he started 3 days fast as a part of Sadbhavana mission with a view to strengthen the peace, unity and harmony in the state. In 2011, he won again and continued at the same post. This proves that he has that aroma around his personality that attracts lots of people’s confidence in him. He has proved his worth with his effective leadership and placing Gujarat at 2nd Rank in term of developed state during 2011-12. Thus BJP is in rule successfully in Gujarat since 1995. 4.1.3 Special Achievements: Despite various controversies against him, he has been awarded in different category. Some of them are as follows: Gujarat Ratna by Shri Poona Gujarati BandhuSamaj at Ganesh Kala KridaManch on celebration of centenary year. e-Ratna award by the Computer Society of India. Best Chief Minister – In a nationwide survey conducted in 2006 by India Today magazine, NarendraModi was declared the Best Chief Minister in the country. Asian Winner of the fDi Personality of the Year Award for 2009 by fDi Magazine 4.1.4. Style of leadership: Long term planning and clear focus: Mr. Modi sets goals and controls manpower to complete individual tasks; he practically and directly supervises personnel even at the very bottom of the pyramid of his power. Risk-taker: He understands that if there’s one way the state could turn eyes, that is by opening the state. He knows the corporates would do the rest, all he has to do is to attempt them in, and make people – his end customers, believe that it is basically him who does it all by taking immense risk. Thinker: As an analyzer he ultimately knows what kind of effect would last-long on his team, people and media. He would constantly make sure that somehow, people keep talking about him. This maybe a typical politician’s game, but Modi’s style is different. By this, he maintains a brand value like no other. His target is wide and his ways of reaching them are very few. His branding methods sometimes cost him a part of his own reputation, but he knows when it is worth. He knows his powers and most of all, his weaknesses. This makes him and his enterprise (state) invincible. Inspirational to Youth: He inspires the youth on large scale and strengthens them through providing all they need to excel in terms of better infrastructure. He is a crowd puller as a speaker. Future Prospective: He has proved from his leadership in Gujarat, that he can bring the required changes in Indian Political system that can bring sustainable development on large to benefit country on large. So he is the most favorable candidate from BJP for the next Prime Minister of India. 4.2 Sonia Gandhi: Sonia Gandhi (born Edvige Antonia AlbinaMaino; 9 December 1946) is an Italian-born Indian politician, She is the widow of former Prime Minister of India, Rajiv Gandhi and belongs to the Nehru-Gandhi family. After her husband’s assassination in 1991, she was invited by Congress leaders to take over the government; but she refused and publicly stayed away from politics amidst constant prodding from the party. She finally agreed to join politics in 1997; in 1998, she was elected as President of the Indian National Congress party since 1998. She has also served as the Chairperson of the ruling United Progressive Alliance in the LokSabha since 2004. In September 2010, on being re-elected for the fourth time, she became the longest serving president in the 125-year history of the Congress party. Her foreign birth has been a subject of much debate and controversy. Although she is the fifth foreign-born person to be leader of the Congress Party, she is the first since independence in 1947. 4.2.1. Career: In May 1999, three senior leaders of the party (SharadPawar, P. A. Sangma, and Tariq Anwar) challenged her right to try to become India’s Prime Minister because of her foreign origins. In response, she offered to resign as a party leader, resulting in an outpouring of support and the expulsion from the party of the three rebels who went on to form the Nationalist Congress Party. Within 62 days of joining as a primary member, she was offered the party President post which she accepted. She contested LokSabha elections from Bellary, Karnataka and Amethi, Uttar Pradesh in 1999. In Bellary she defeated veteran BJP leader, SushmaSwaraj. In 2004 and 2009, she was re-elected to the LokSabha from Rae Bareli in Uttar Pradesh. Under her leadership, India returned the Congress-led-UPA to a near majority in the 2009 general elections with Manmohan Singh as the Prime Minister.

The British magazine “New Statesman” listed her at number 29 in their annual survey of “The World’s 50 Most Influential Figures” in the year 2010. 4.2.3. Style of Leadership: Sonia’s leadership style stands out different because it breaks long-standing stereotypes. Reluctant:A reluctant politician, she stunned all the stone of doubt on her due to foreign origin, by declining the post of prime minister more than once. Taking New Challenges: Being open to taking on new challenges. Despite of various controversy related to her foreign origin, she joined party and proved her worth. Breaking Language Barriers: Breaking out of the “Italian on Indian soil” mould was probably one of the most difficult things for her to do, considering her Hindi was heavily-accented and there were enough detractors in the opposition to play up the “foreigner” card. But instead of giving up, she worked on her language skills and became the force behind the pro-poor programmes of the Congress-led UPA government – an Endeavour which took her to the mofussil villages of India where Hindi was the only language spoken. So much so, that this campaign helped Congress win elections again in 2009. Rejuvenating Self: She is always rejuvenating self, from small town Italian girl to one of the most powerful women in the world, she has come a long way. She has come under some of the worst criticism and the best praise in her 15-year political career. She has remained unfazed through both. 5.

Case Study: Liver Disease and Hepatitis B. Case study – Liver Disease Introduction A 60 year old woman with a history of hepatitis B and cirrhosis presents with oedema and constipation. The GP takes the following tests on her and these are the results. Albumin 30g/L Platelet count <1×10^11 platelets per litre.(portal hypertension) Alpha – fetoprotein 450 ng/mL Test results The test results can be used for analysis to clarify what disease the 60 year old woman has, and by linking her symptoms with the test results. Hepatitis B is a virus that affects the liver, chronic hepatitis can develop without proper treatment. Having hepatitis B will eventually cause scarring to the liver which is known as cirrhosis. The 60 year old woman has developed Chronic hepatitis, the hepatitis is ongoing and serious, this will eventually cause the liver tissue to produce scares and stop functioning as it should .A liver biopsy (tissue sample) can be taken to find out how serious the hepatitis is. One of the function of the liver is to produce a protein called albumin, having liver cirrhosis will cause permanent damage to the liver and when this happens the liver will find it had to produce albumin.(Aspinall et al 2011:Pubmed) Albumin is a protein that is made by the liver which measures the exact amount of protein in the clear liquid portion in blood. The test is usually taken place to determine whether a person has a sort of liver or kidney disease which is the main reason why the test was carried out. The normal range in human is between 3.4 – 5.4g/dL. The woman’s albumin level shows that it is below average, low albumin may cause oedema which is a symptom that the woman is experiencing. Cirrhosis results in an increase in fluid retention. Cirrhosis also leads to low levels of albumin and other proteins in the blood which could also be the cause of oedema. (Gupta and Lis, 2010) Platelet count determines the amount of platelet in the blood, normal adults produce 1 x10^11 platelets every day, portal hypertension is a complication of cirrhosis of the liver. Portal hypertension always takes place in the liver at all times, an increase in the pressure within the portal vein is caused by barrier of the blood flow to through the liver (Kotoh et al 2012). Portal hypertension causes symptoms to patients that are linked to their liver disease which could be hepatitis B,C or cirrhosis, patients that have cirrhosis had a very high chance of developing portal hypertension and it was increase over years. Patients who have portal hypertension usually have low platelet count which is the case of the 60 year old woman whose platelet count is <1011 /L which is below average. Thrombocytopenia refers to low blood platelet count. Thrombocytopenia has many causes, including cancer, medications, disease and infections. Thrombocytopenia is a common indicator of cancer, because sometimes the cancer and drugs used to treat the cancer affect platelet production in the bone marrow. (Kotoh et al 2012). Alpha fetoprotein is a protein that is found in the liver, it is considered a tumour marker for liver cancer, the test may be done to diagnose possible liver diseases. The normal values in males or non-pregnant females is generally less than 40 micrograms/litre.High levels of alpha-fetoprotein indicates that there could be liver cancer which is the key factor which shows that there is something wrong with the liver.If your AFP level is unusually high but you are not pregnant, it may indicate the presence of certaincancers or liverconditions.so a liver transplant could be an option for the woman. In adults, high blood levels can be a sign of certain types of cancer, including liver cancer. (Alejandro et al, 2012) Symptoms and Diagnosis Constipation is a liver related issue, in this case It was most likely caused by her progressing tumour formation this may press on her digestive system causing constipation, having cirrhosis may also not allow her to properly digest fatty lipids because her bile might possibly be blocked resulting in constipation. Hypothyroidism can cause constipation. Blood tests to check thyroid hormones / TSH will help in diagnosing hypothyroidism. Oedema is swelling that is caused by fluid trapped in the bodies tissues, oedema can be a sign of lots of things including malnourishment and low albumin level in the blood and the woman’s albumin level is below average these are the results of having liver failure and cirrhosis. Having history of cirrhosis is the main reason she has oedema. (Gaw et al 2013) Because of the woman’s age cancer would need to be tested for cancer as old people are much more prone to have cancer. Albumin is produced by the liver meaning that her liver is affected inducting liver cancer. Some patients with chronic liver diseases are more likely to develop thyroiditis, hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism through autoimmune mechanisms (Huang, Liaw 2008). The woman may have Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC) which is most common and popular type of liver cancer. The main risk factors associated with HCC are hepatitis B,C and cirrhosis which the woman has a history of. HCC develops in patients with chronic liver disease and patients with cirrhosis are more likely to develop HCC and people over the age of 50 are more likely to develop HCC. The most common diseases that affects the liver are cirrhosis and hepatitis (Marshall and Bangert 2008). HCC is a serious disease in which alpha-fetoprotein will be elevated in a person, alpha-fetoprotein is a gene that becomes expressed when lots of damage has occurred to the liver in HCC. The normal range for AFP is 10-20 ng/mL.A level of >400 ng/mL may be regarded as diagnostic for HCC by some. Further tests A test that can be proposed is an ultrasound of the liver, an ultrasound test uses sound waves to create pictures and to see what is going on with organs inside the body. If any tumours are found in the liver then this can be furthered to test for cancer. An MRI scan can be useful for looking at liver cancers, MRI are sometimes good at telling which cancers are a tumour. Another tests that can be carried out is biopsy which involves actually taking the tumour and inspecting it under the microscope for further analysis which is likely to be more effective and reliable. Alanine aminotransferase(ALT)An alanine aminotransferase (ALT) test measures the amount of this enzyme in the blood. ALT is found mainly in the liver, ALT is measured to see if the liver is damaged or diseased. Low levels of ALT are normally found in the blood. But when the liver is damaged or diseased, it releases ALT into the bloodstream, which makes ALT levels go up. Most increases in ALT levels are caused by liver damage. Treatment and Prognosis Some treatment for HCC can include a liver transplant or surgery which can remove small or small-growing tumours.Sorafenib tosylate (Nexavar), which is an oral medication can be taken to block and stops tumour from growing.The prognosis is often poor, because only 10 – 20% of hepatocellular carcinomas can be removed completely using surgery. Radio frequency ablation can be used to kill cancerous cells. If the cancer cannot successfully be removed or killed, the disease is usually deadly within 3 – 6 months. However, this is not always the case as everybody is difference and so on some occasions people will survive much longer than 6 months.

Americans Obsession With Sports History Essay
help writing The legendary Karl Marx commented “Religion is the opium of the people.” during 21st Century, however, it can be said that it is actually sports that currently has substituted religion as the opium of the masses. Psychologists are ended up on a conclusion that sports have almost similar impacts on audience as religion carries out. It might appear strange to associate sport entertainment with religion, however it should be comprehensible that previously religious customs and mass communications were sources of recreation for typical public who barely went on a sporting experience or watch theaters. Wann along with his associates considers sports as human centered religion, ancient polytheism (believes in multiple God) and natural religion, connecting that viewers idolize other human beings, their triumph, moreover the group to which they be with. By that moment in time, sports arena seems a lot like cathedrals where supporters get together to worship their ideals of game along with plead for their success. [Wann, et al., 2001, p. 200]  . If means might be exciting, then pleasure, like practiced in a sports stadium, could exist ritualistic. People gather and supporters wear their team’s attire and carry its accessories, flags and lucky charms to boost up their team members. Then, during the game, there is persistent intonation of team support, clapping, scornful the opponent team, performing the movements, plus therefore onwards. The playing of a national hymn or screeching jointly a state song on a sporting event has huge emotional possessions the same as the playing of a saintly song in church. According to Harris  (1981), sports has curved into fascination, a craze, a compulsive drug plus eminent than just any essence. It is the latest opium of the people. There is no skeptical that sports play a substantial part within the lives of various Americans furthermore to be sure of many people around the world. It has become an integral part of American history and culture. Sports have been given unique importance by the US people. People worship sports like religion as mentioned before and sit in front of television for hours and hours even after the match is over. Although the precise beginning of baseball is mysterious, most historians have the same opinion that it is established on English game of rounder’s. A sport that began to turn out to be relatively admired in this country in the premature 19th century and numerous findings account the rising fame of a game named “town ball, base, or baseball”. Right through the premature element of the 19th century, little towns produced teams, and baseball clubs were created in bigger cities. Alexander Cartwright sought to make official a record of policies by which all teams could play in 1845. Since 1945 in America, the World War II covers its outcome on sports as every strong and fit man among 18 to 26 was expected to serve up the military.
