3:32 am Doctors perform the surgery on the infant Top News A two-year-old boy suffering from a cancer considered very rare among children lost a part of his jaw when doctors performed surgery to remove the tumour But an eight-hour reconstructive surgery during which a part of the boy’s calf bone was taken and attached to his jaw has now given the child hope for a normal life Dr Rajan Arora who performed the surgery at the Rajiv Gandhi Cancer Institute and Research Centre said it was the first such case he had handled This despite having performed approximately 500 reconstructive surgeries in the last two years “This is a very complex reconstructive surgery usually not performed on children It is a rare surgery and the first one I’ve performed on a two-and-a-half-year-old child” Dr Arora said The disease the infant was suffering from Ewing’s sarcoma is a type of bone cancer considered very rare in paediatric oncology The cancer usually affects those between 10 and 20 years of age “This type of cancer itself is very rare and it’s even more rare to see it in a child” said Dr Shalini Mishra consultant paediatric surgical oncology Rajiv Gandhi Cancer Institute and Research Centre When the infant was examined it was revealed that he had a localised tumour in his left jaw bone (mandible) till the mid-line Dr Mishra said that radiation typically used to shrink and kill cancer cells had to be avoided “Radiation exposure would hamper his normal growth and have long-term side effects So we had to opt for surgery wherein the left jaw and chin would be removed” said Dr Mishra But this would mean the child would have serious problems with speech and eating “Losing the left jaw would mean he would lose his teeth So we had to opt for reconstruction after the removal” said Dr Mishra For this Dr Arora said a “piece of the child’s fibula was taken out” “Later the fibula was remodelled to give it the shape of the removed lower jaw” said Dr Arora “The procedure is done in adult patients suffering from oral cancer But in children very few such cases are reported” Dr Mishra said The child will be kept under observation for a year to track the growth

maritime power Related News It is not easy to recall the last time when an Indian Prime Minister articulated India’s objectives and policy for the Indian Ocean Narendra Modi has made up for the lost time today in Mauritius when he outlined a comprehensive framework for India as a maritime power Despite India’s growing reliance on the seas over the last quarter of a century and a series of minor maritime initiatives by a number of government agencies the top political leadership never had the time or inclination to lay out a clear set of goals in the Indian Ocean and the maritime domains beyond Delhi had much else on its mind including the troubles with China and Pakistan and its large and contested land frontiers India was not alone in its continental obsessions China like India was long consumed by the threats to its land borders For nearly a decade though the top leaders of the Chinese Communist Party had made it their business to wake up the nation to its historic maritime destiny at hand The CCP leadership never lost an opportunity to tell the world of China’s ‘maritime rights’ and assert them vigorously much to the discomfiture of its neighbours in East Asia More recently it has proclaimed a grand vision to build a maritime silk road between the Pacific and the Indian Oceans Modi pitched it very differently today when he handed over a warship the Barracuda to the coast guard of Mauritius Declaring that the Indian Ocean littoral is at the very top of India’s foreign policy priorities Modi laid a five-fold policy framework It begins with the affirmation that Delhi will do everything to secure India’s mainland and island territories and defend its maritime interests The second dimension is about deepening partnerships with friends and partners in the Indian Ocean especially island republics like Seychelles and Mauritius The last two days have seen Modi shed many traditional Indian inhibitions in expanding security cooperation with the two island republics that occupy critical locations in the South Western Indian Ocean The third level relates to building multilateral cooperative maritime security in the Indian Ocean Modi said India will help strengthen regional mechanisms in combatting terrorism and piracy and responding to natural disasters Sustainable development for all Modi said is the fourth element of India’s maritime policy While talking about the prospects for blue economy in the region Modi demonstrated Delhi’s new sensitivity to climate change that so threatens the very existence of the small islands Finally Modi has discarded the long standing Indian self perception as a lone ranger in the Indian Ocean For decades India made no secret of its reluctance to cooperate with other major powers in the Indian Ocean Delhi constantly sought to differentiate between itself and ‘extra-regional’ powers who it hinted had no business of being around in the Indian Ocean While insisting that ‘those who live in the region have the primary responsibility for peace stability and prosperity in the Indian Ocean’ Modi recognised that ‘there are other nations around the world with strong interests and stakes in the region’ Modi declared that ‘India is deeply engaged with other powers’ ‘We do this through dialogue visits exercises capacity building and economic partnership’ This declaration of course fits in nicely with the joint vision for the Indian Ocean and the Asia Pacific that Modi had unveiled with the US President Barack Obama at the end of January in Delhi India is no longer hesitant about taking a larger
