"The first image refers to pedophilia in the Vatican. Second child sexual abuse in tourism in Thailand, and the third refers to the war in Syria. The fourth image refers to the trafficking of organs on the black market, where most of the victims are children from poor countries; fifth refers to weapons free in the U.S.. And finally, the sixth image refers to obesity, blaming the big fast food companies.
The new series produced by Cuban artist Erik Ravelo was titled as "The untouchables", are photographs of children crucified for his supposed oppressors, each for a different reason and a clear message, seeks to reaffirm the right of children to be protected and report abuse suffered by them especially in countries such as Brazil, Syria, Thailand, United States and Japan"

Fran Drescher. She is an American film and television actress, comedian, producer, and a Cancer Survivor. In January 1985, two armed robbers broke into Drescher and her husband Peter Jacobson's Los Angeles apartment. They ransacked their home, Drescher and her friend were raped at gunpoint. Jacobson was also physically attacked, tied up, and forced to witness the entire ordeal. As per her statement, it took Drescher many years to recover, and it took her even longer to tell her story to the press. She was paraphrased as saying in an interview with Larry King that although it was a traumatic experience, she found ways to turn it into something positive. In her book Cancer Schmancer, the actress writes: "My whole life has been about changing negatives into positives." Her rapist, who was on parole at the time of the crime, was returned to prison and given two life sentences.

Read two articles in ABP Ananda today that scared the shit out of me---
Firstly a mother arranged to gang rape a woman who happens to be the wife of the man who raped her minor daughter. The incident took place in Uttar Pradesh... where a man raped a minor, convicted for the same and currently in jail. But the bereaved mother wasn't satisfied with the punishment and decided to conspire something equally heinous. She hired 3 men and convinced her husband to kidnap the poor wife of the convict and rape her one after another.... the lady is in critical condition. Apparently they believe in" an eye for an eye"... but these will make the whole society blind... being a woman god knows how she overlooked the ordeal of a raped woman...
The second incident took place in Chanchal, Malda, West Bengal. A woman tried to stop her husband from illegal organ(read kidneys) trading... and what did the hubby do??? Hr simply took her to a lonely place ...where three of his friend were already waiting for free sex... they took their turn to rape her. Her ordeal wasn't over... after this she was locked in a room so that she couldn't lodge a police complaint... thankfully she managed to escape. God knows what is happening....

Safdar Hashmi is nothing but a legend. He is revered by almost every sane Indian. He was born in Delhi on this day that is on 12 th April,1954. Raised in an extremely open and secular environment... graduated from Saint Stephens College and then did his master from Delhi University in English literature. He was a communist and was an active member of the party as well. He even married one of his comrades and colleague Maloysree. He was associated with its theatrical wing IPTA. He cofounded Janam(Jana Natya Manch) Peoples Theater Front in 1973. In 1989 he was murdered while performing a street play named Halla bol(attack).it was 1 st January 1989 he went to a village Jhandpur in Sahibabad in the outskirts of Delhi along with his group Janam to perform the drama on the pretext of Gaziabad Municipality elections.... his troop was attacked by political hoodlums and he was fatally injured. He died that day what most awe inspiring was that his better half went to the same place just two days after his demice and performed the same play..... what a lady.

God knows what's going on with the candidates of Samajwadi Party in this parliamentary elections!!!!! First some Azam Khan made an extremely derogatory remark about Indian Army... he tried to divide our martyrs in the Kargil war on the basis of there religion. He said that Kargil war was solely won by the Muslim soldiers. Hindu and Shikh soldiers did absolutely nothing. But the fact is more than 500 soldiers were killed... and out of them 11 were Muslims. That's not the point all the martyrs are equally dear to us. The whole country takes pride on Indian Army. They lack everything but definitely not courage.
Then came the party supremo Mr. Mulayam Singh Yadav. He said in a rally that rape is a trivial mistake. Boys and girls fall in love... then things don't work... they mend their ways but the girl cries rape. Men make mistakes. Capital punishment is too much for such a minor crime. He also assured that if his party comes to power he would definitely do something to repeal the law... so that rapists might be dealt with leniency.
He said it on Thursday and to support him one of his comrade in arms Mr. Abu Azmi today proudly said that if any woman sleeps with a man other than her husband, no matter with or without her consents should be hanged till death. (Source- TOI)Unbelievable.... medieval or what?????

This beautiful girl was only 15/16 when one of her friend;s brother threw acid on her at busy hour in a bus stop. Dont ask the question why... the answer is well known. She refused to accept his love proposal. Love well off course he was allegedly a 32 yrs matured man... proposing a teenager. She is completely disfigured. Her life was shattered but momentarily... unlike other victims of these gruesome heinous crime she didnt lose hope...she is a born fighter. It took seven long years to get the justice. She started a tireless campaign against usage of acid for violence. Finally the apex court intervenes and directed the union government to regulate the sale of acid.
The first Lady of the US of A Mrs Michelle Obama on her recent visit to India felicitated Laxmi for her courage and determination. She also won the International Women of Courage Award for successfully leading the campaign against acid attacks on women in India.
By the way this is how she looks without make up
This is her page in FB https://www.facebook.com/Laxmi.SAA ... do like her and support her.

Read an amazing article about pick pockets in Kolkata Metro... I guess we all have some preconceived notions about the pickpockets.. i.e. they all look more or less like Nawajuddin Siddiqui in Munna Bhai MBBS ...lol
But the fact is altogether different.
- Firstly them dont operate alone but always in a group of not less than four.
- Secondly they dress well and speak fluent English (ignore the grammatical mistakes).
- Thirdly they carry Laptop (or the empty bag) just to give you the impression of being a student or a hot shot techie.
- Fourthly they carry smart phone with a ear phone. You think they are listening to music with occasional grooving but actually he is simply listening to instructions from his partners.
By the way the gang of four mostly targets middle aged men, who stands before the ladies seats and exhibits their costly smart phones in order to impress the girls.... ROFL :P
If anything ever happens to you in Kolkata Metro or any other Metros dont forget to lodge a complaint. People hardly lodge complaints and it simply boosts their(pick pockets) morals.

India and China... two most populous countries... two arch rivals.... two super powers of the so called third world...every year countless money has been spent in the defense sector to confront each other but deep down both the countries are fatally affected by an epidemic.... no its not AIDS.... not even cancer... its female foeticide and female infanticide. Enough has been written about the foeticide and decreasing sex ratio of India. But the picture is equally serious in China too.
The tradition of killing female infants is very old in China may be thousands of year old. Various travelogue of christian Missionaries have confirmed this. There is Chinese word called Ni nu... which means drowning girls. Babies are simply drowned in most cases by their mothers. If the woman hesitates to do so she is forced to do so by her husband, in laws even by her parents... the baby is drowned in the sink full of blood and water.... if the mother fails to do this heinous crime the mid wives would do it. The baby is immersed in water and is being hold forcefully until she stopes moving..... nightmarish isn't it. D.E. Mungello had written a book on this in 2008 called " Drowning Girls of China". Frankly speaking I don't have the guts to read it........ I'm too terrified.
By the way there are/ were other technics too... like starvation ....like putting pressure in the appropriate places so that the infant suffocates to death, mostly performed by the mid wives.... technics like exposing the baby to elements.. by placing it in a basket and by hanging the basket from a tree.... the baby shouts but nobody pays attention not even the passerby.. eventually the baby starves to death... though I doubt whether its practiced any more (source Google and Wikipedia).
In order to restrain the high growth of population the Chinese Government declared the famous/ infamous " One Couple One Child Policy" on 25th September 1980... it only added fuel to the fire... the aftermath was nothing but a genocide... watching the dreaded sex ratio the Government finally amended the policy in 1984 by allowing those couple who have a female first borne to have another issue. This was practically of very little help.
In the Twenty First century the Chinese Government set up few baby hatches... a baby hatch is a place where unwilling couple may abandon their child that too anonimously. They are to drop the baby in a basket and ring a bell. After ten minutes the trained medical staff of that hatch come out and pick the baby up. Abandoned babies receives proper care and medical attention. Currently there are around 25 such hatches. It will be 75 within a few years.An article in the Times of India caught my eyes couple of days ago.. it says that the such an hatch was shut down by the authorities. Because 262 babies were dumped within a few weeks. The hatch was opened in the end of January 2014 by the way.
Scary or what??????????

Happy birth day to Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan and a big salute to Mr K. Unnikrishnan..... like father like son
Major Unnikrishnana born on 15th March 1977... an only child.. his father was an retired ISRO officer. What a brave man he is... like father like son I must say. After Major Unnikrishanan's death whole nation mourned for him and for other martyrs.... his funeral was over crowded but sadly not a single representative of the Kerala Government attended the rituals.... few days back after much hue and cry in the media, the then Chief Minister of Kerala V. S. Achuthanandan went to meet the parents of the slain Major. Sandeep's father K. Unnikrishnan was so angry that he asked them to leave. He even threatened to commit suicide if any politician from Kerala entered his home. He said, "No dog would enter my house".Later, V. S. Achuthanandan told media that had it not been for Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan, not even a dog would have visited his parents' house.
This again invited harsh criticism from the media and public.But, Achuthanandan stated that he would not apologize to the Major's family.
But finally he said or rather had to say that he respects the slain Major's family.
“Do not come up, I will handle them”, were the last words of Major Unnikrishnan to his men as he was hit by bullets. He was awarded with Ashok Chakra, the highest peace time gallantry award of India on 26.01.2009
A big salute to Major Sandeep Unnikrishanan and to his father Sir K Unnikrishnan.... what a man.

Petition for leniency filed by the accused in the Nirbjaya gang rape case.... summarily rejected by the Delhi High Court
Hope you remember the heinous rape of a 23 year old paramedic in a school bus in Delhi that shook each and every sane human beings through out the globe, since as per law the name of the victim couldn't be published so the media christened her with various names like Nirbhya/ Damini and so on. Though her family had no objection. In fact her parents wanted us to know her by her real name i.e. Jyoti. But she is still known as Nirbhaya (the fearless).
The brutal rape enraged Delhites so much that they burst with strong protest through out the city demanding capital punishments for the accused. All the rapists were duly arrested. But unfortunately one of the rapist were minor. Though as per Nirbhaya's final statement he was the one who shoved that iron rod into her( through her vagina), the fatal blow that ultimately killed her. It was also reported that while shoving the rod he uttered , " sali mar( die, you bitch). Being a minor I.e. below 18 he was judged under Juvenile Justice Act and was awarded a mere imprisonment of two years only. Ironical isn't it?????
One of the other accused also claimed to be a minor but he claim was summarily rejected. In the middle of the proceedings one accused committed suicide. Whole country waited with bated breath and finally justice was delivered that too in time. All the accused were sentenced to death. It was like an untimely dewali.... every true Indian was elated.
Anyway the accused filed a petition at the Delhi High Court and prayed for leniency. But yesterday their prayer was rejected by calling it rarest of rare in nature.... now they'll apply to the Supreme Court. Its not that we have any personal rivalry with them..... capita punishment to a handful rapist will never solve the issue .... more and more women were raped after the fretful incident... but still something is better than nothing.... we want justice. Justice for her ... for every single victim... in every nook and corner of the world.

Remember the incident in Birbhum district of West Bengal, where a tribal girl was heckled, tortured and gang raped by the who's
Who of the society.... her only fault was that she had been in a relationship with a non tribal guy. Every sane human being was trembled with disgust. What really amazed me that not a single woman from the village stood by her. There was sheer apathy towards her.... they even claimed that the victim had very lose morals and faked the incident... However the medical report told an altogether different story. A woman/ girl may be over friendly....with guys I mean..... she may be a husband snatcher... but we live in a civilised society not a medieval one.... we just can't judge them from our point of view and pronounce a harsh verdict... that too like imposing a huge fine or in worst cases rape..... what the hell is going on?????
It seems that it was not a stray incident... something like that happened again .. this time near Patna, the Capital of Bihar. This time the victim is a teenager of 13 years. After her parents demise she is been raised by her grand parents. She has been caught by the local people .... by the way she was merely having chitchat with a boy. They were both beaten... huge fine of Rs. 12/13 thousand was imposed... the boys family promised to pay in installments.... but there was no one to pay for her. This enraged locals so much that they decided to banish her from the village. Her face was tarnished and she was forced to board an auto.
Luckily some woman co-passenger noticed her condition and took her to police. Police took prompt action. Few people were arrested but even the administration is in jeopardy.... they are sceptical about sending her home... as the natives simply loath her.
Feel so sorry for her.... wish I could do something for her or other such victims.

Women's day is over. Mother's day is coming. Our society has changed a lot. These days women are treated with more respect. They are more aware of their rights. Even a domestic help knows what is gender equality though she may not know the exact term. I'm not talking about the metropolitans only but also about the rural India. Here is a story read in a Bengali daily, Ei samay ....... I was completely awe struck by the courage and tenacity of that girl.
Some where in south 24 Parganas she lives with her 5 year old boy. She is 18 by the way. She lost her father at a very young age. Her mother was a domestic help. Poor lady, the mother had to leave for work every morning in order to earn bread for the family. The girl was in School and a good student, I mean not a very brilliant one but still..... one day in her mother's absence at the age of mere 12 she was raped by a neighbour. She was threatened with dire consequences. Being scared she didn't share with anybody until she was pregnant.
Local kangaroo court asked her to abort the illegitimate child and the rapist was ordered to bear the expenditure for the abortion...... can you believe it?????? Even her mother and brother agreed with the verdict.... but she refused to obey the verdict. That was the beginning of the true ordeal. They were out casted. A police complaint was finally launched. The bloody paedophile was arrested. Despite the social stigma she gave birth to her boy. She had to bid goodbye to her school. They were forced to leave their village.
The irony is that the rapist was acquitted and even got married. But the victim is still single, leaving in lurch with her mother and son. The boy is admitted to a School. Being a single mother she has to work hard.
Hats off to her!!!!!! What a lady!!!!! She still dreams....

Happy women's day. On this day I would like to remind you once again the Bhowri devi incident of Rajasthan. Bhowri Devi was brutally raped,gang raped to be precise, why because she simply tried to stop child marriage. Astonishingly none of the accused were punished. Yes each and every rapist were acquitted. This enraged some NGO named Bishaka. They suo moto filed a lawsuit against harassment of women at workplaces as a result the famous Bishaka Guidelines come into force. Bishaka guidelines are thing of the past. After the Nirbhaya incident Sextual harassment Act, 2013 came into force.
Sounds cliche huh!!! Okay fine. Let's talk about Linkan Subudhi, an Oria techi from Noida. She teaches slum children at Noida in her spare time. One day she came to know that one of her students, a 11 years old girl was about to get married. She ran to stop her family from doing this and you know what? She is brutally beaten even stabbed.
Justice has not delivered yet.

This place is called Duttapukur in North 24 Parganas District of West Bengal, where a minor girl was raped few days after the infamous Kamduni incident took place in the very same district. When the poor mother took her raped minor daughter to the Duttapukur Police Station to lodge an FIR they were forcefully convinced that it was just a mere mistake. Momentary impulse. In order to correct his misdeed the boy was keen to marry her...on that day ....in that very place...I mean in the P.S. A Marriage Registrar was called and ignoring the fact that she was a minor then he did his job. The rapist and the rape victim was declared as Men & Wife. No one month notice was served though. Happy ending right????????? Total Filmy !!!!!!!!!!
But the real ordeal started after the marriage. Oh I forgot to mention that the rapist was a 22 years old engineering student, as reported. Suddenly he found his older sister in law very attractive. He wanted to sleep with her too. But one ooopsssss! Marry one and get one get free.huh!!!!!! Anyways he sent so many obscene messages to her through Whats-app. A gizmo rapist I must say. But all his proposals of making love were refused with disdain. Then he started torturing his wife both mentally and physically who was expecting by the way.
Poor mother went to police station with both her daughters..... but the police was more interested in a conciliation... finally on their appeal Hon'ble High Court has intervened and the accused is arrested.
I dont know how long they would be able to fight. In our country the general approach is its nothing domestic problems. God save them.

This film has also got 10 Oscar nominations this year along with American Hustle…… including best film, best director, best actress (Sandra Bullock) etc. This is the story of Dr. Stone(Bullock), who is on her 1st space mission. She lost her daughter and after that she turns into a workaholic. She is accompanied by veteran astronaut Kowalski (George Clooney). One day while she is doing a maintenance job of the Hubble telescope suddenly they are directed to return to their spaceship and abort the mission instantly, as a Russian missile hit a satellite causing huge space debris which are about to hit them. Before they get back to their spaceship the debris hit it. Dr Stone is detached from the shuttle and is thrown away. She lost in space. Cant contact anyone and Oxygen is also fast depleting. Kowalski finds her after sometime and together they space walk to their ship. But the high speed debris has already destroyed it, killing every astronauts. The only way to survive is to go to the Russian space station.. which is about 900 miles away. They must walk this distance that too before the debris strike back again….. it’s a high speed adventure drama. Watching this film in 3D is a visual delight….. all I wish is to see Clooney more. Im awe-struck. 5 out of 5.
