"The untouchables"- Erik Ravelo



"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"

Some Serial Killers & Their Last Words

Isnt he charming.... this is Ted Bundy, an American serial killer. He allegedly raped and killed at least 100 women and girls. Due to his charming nature women fell for him. He always approached his victims in public feigning ignorance or inability about something and then lured them to a secluded place to rape and murder. He decapitated some of his victims and preserved their heads as trophies. He was a necrophiliac-used to have sex with his victims even when they were dead until it was impossible to do so.
His lasts words were,"I'd like you to give my love to my family and friends." unbelievable isnt it????
This man John Wayne Gacy, is known as the 'Killer Clown" he raped and murdered 33 young men and boys after raping them off course in six years. His lasts words were,"Kiss my ass." :o
Here is another American serial killer whose last words were, "Hurry up, you Hoosier bastard. I could kill ten men while you're fooling around." meet Carl Panzram. He confessed murdering 22 men and raping at least 1000 others. In one of his honest confessions he said that he raped men not just because he was a homosexual but simply because he wanted to humiliate them before robbing.


It was a common believe in erstwhile USSR that crime like rape and murder was a characteristic of immoral capitalist societies.. its a fact that most abominable serial killers and rapists were from US of A, but they do exist in every society. Meet this ugly man Andrei Chikatilo, a brutal serial killer and rapist from Ukraine, USSR (former). He butchered 53 women and little girls after raping them. He was nicknamed “Butcher of Rostov” and the “Red Ripper”. he confessed that his first victim was a nine year old girl... he took her to a wood and tried to rape her... she was screaming her heart out so he had to slit her throat... he later admitted that he had realised at that moment the only got an erection when a dieing woman or child beg for her life.
Last but not the least meet Javed Iqbal, a native from Pakistan
and these were his exact words before dieing “I am Javed Iqbal, killer of 100 children. I hate this world. I am not ashamed of my action and I am ready to die. I have no regrets. I killed 100 children.”

The Crusaders who Survive Rape

Rape is an abominable crime... unfortunately our society hardly treats a rape victim with sympathy. Nobody ever asks an accused about his whereabouts or clothing at that instant but the poor girl goes through series of scrutinies. The trauma lasts for ever..the victim as well as her family suffers apathy. just being curious checked the internet about celebrities who were raped/abused/humiliated at a point of time but they have successfully overcome the trauma and became maestros...  the list topper is

Yess Oprah Winfrey.... she admitted that she was raped by a relative at the age of mere 9....
She grabbed the limelight with Bad Boys II, Gabrielle Union was raped at the age of 19, she was a sales girl at a shoe store,

Teri Hatcher- hats off to her. at the age of just five she was raped by her uncle -- in 2002 she testified against him and he was sentenced to 14 yrs imprisonment.
There are many others but I like to end with this amazing lady..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.
Hats off to you lady...... you are a nothing but a crusader.

Sexual harrasemnt - men equally suffer

A recent report shows that the sexual harassment and molestation cases in US Army has been dropped to 50% than what reported the year before due to constant monitoring and crackdown... the victims now realise that the perpetrators would be punished for the wrong doing.... whats more astonishing is that 50% of the victims are male soldiers and army staff however they constitute only 14% of the reported cases.

Indian men who think that the term sexual harassment associated with weaker sex and homos only... open your eyes.

An eye for an eye... would ultimately make the whole society blind

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....

Today lets mourn for Safdar Hashmi... its Street Play Day

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.

If a woman sleeps with any man other than her husaband.... should be hanged

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?????

Rape is a 'choti moti galati'(a trivial mistake) -Mulayam Singh Jadav

Mr. Mulayam Singh Yadav today said that rape is nothing but a trivial mistake. The S.P. supremo said that guys and girls fall in love.... but things hardly fall into places.... so ultimately they break up and the girl cries rape.... unimaginable.... he is the father of the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh.... recently capital punishment was sentenced to three rapists in the Shakti Mills rape case in Mumbai. Mr. Yadav promised the masses that if his party comes into power he would do anything to repeal the law which provides life term for the rapists.... since boys make mistakes. Disgusting or what,......

The Willing Journey of a Misguided Girl- who was raped 67 times by 37 men in 40 days

She was only 16. A middle class girl whose father was a Post Master back then from the Suryanelli Village of Idduki District of Kerala. She had befriended a bus cleaner, named Raju at the age of 14 only and fell in love. On the fretful day of 16th January 1996 she was eloped from her school hostel at Munnar by her lover Raju. But surprisingly was abandoned during the journey, the deserted helpless girl sought help from a woman named Usha. Usha was traveling with a man named Dharmarajan, a lawyer by profession. The duo assured her that they would drop her to her aunt's place.
She trusted them blindly and was taken to a lodge where she was raped by this man Dharmarajan. Source- Google.

Her plight was not over yet. She was drugged and taken to various places in Tamilnadu and Kerala and was raped 67 times by 37 men ranging from Lawyer to Retired Professor to Business man and even Politicians. After 40 days she was released with a meager amount of money.

She reached her father's office and narrated the story... was taken to Hospitals and the Doctors who first examined her said that her private parts were so ruptured that a mere touch would induce blood (Source-Wiki). She was only 16.

FIR was lodged but the police wasnt cooperating... there was unnecessary delay in the investigation. In 1999 a Special Court was set up to deal with this case and a Special Investigation Team lead by the IG of Police investigated the matter. The Court sentenced rigorous imprisonment to all the accused and life term to Dharmarajan with a fine of Rs. 50,000/-.

But thats not the end of the story. on 20.01.2005 the whole country was shocked to hear the final judgement of the Kerala Highcourt. All 35 accused were acquitted even the life term of Dharmarajan was reduced to 5 years only. The fine imposed on him was reduced from Rs. 50,000/- to Rs. 5,000/- only. The Bench termed the case as "the willing journey of a misguided girl". You may read the judgement in the link given below.

The Girl moved to Supreme Court where she left unheard for eight long years. In the meantime she was offered a Government job. She alongwith her parents had to shift her base due to hostility from the neighbors. After the Nirbhaya case in 2013 this particular case drew limelight. The Apex Court called the verdict of the Kerala High Court 'shocking' and set aside. The case was resend to the Kerala High Court.
Today Kerala High court convicted 24 accused and awarded rigorous imprisonment and also warded life term to Dharmarajan.

Justice delayed is truly Justice denied.

Victimas of Acid Attack-' Laxmi' Isnt she pretty

Image courtesy -L'Oreal Paris Femina Women Award 2014
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.

Beware of your Copassenger in Metro he/she may be a Pickpocket



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.
  1. Firstly them dont operate alone but always in a group of not less than four.
  2. Secondly they dress well and speak fluent English (ignore the grammatical mistakes). 
  3. Thirdly they carry Laptop (or the empty bag) just to give you the impression of being a student or a hot shot techie.
  4.  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.
One of them selects the prey at the ticket counter mostly and sends the instructions accordingly to his partner in crime, literally ;) Second one follows the prey and boards the same compartment along with third and fourth accomplice. Third one distracts the prey and the fourth one does the job. Finally second and third one helps the fourth one to a safe escape.

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.

Female Infanticide the worst Epidemic so far...

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??????????

Released on the eve of Women's day along with multi starer Gulab Gang... it was not even a dark horse... no body counted on it... their is no super star in this film except Lady Amir Khan..oopse Kangna Ranaut.... but she wasn't a super star... not even a star of Madhuri's stature.... still its an instant hit.... Kanghna was better than the best... though its an author backed role still she is fantabulous...... intact each and every single character was portrayed so beautifully.... I was awestruck.

'Kahani' Revisited - A heart wrecking story... Priya Semwal The true Woman of Substance

Have you seen Kahani??? It’s a Hindi film… released in 2012. Directed by Sujoy Ghosh…. Vidya Balan in lead role…. This is the story of a ordinary woman… her husband was an intelligent service officer, who was murdered in a terrorist attack… she loses her baby too at the same time. She is totally shattered… loses all hope… her life becomes meaningless… until she meets her husbands boss Captain Pratap Bajpayee (Darshan Jariwala), who gives her the strength to fight back and find the perpetrator…. After that what happened is nothing but box office history. Vidya has become a star overnight. No one ever expected that a film with just a heroine and bunch of not so famous (even fresher) actors could do so well in box office.
Source -Google

Enough filmy gossip lets get back to reality… sometime truth is indeed stranger that fiction. Priya Semwal ,was an under graduate when she got married to an army man Naik Amit Sharma in 2006. Amit Sharma was not only a great soldier but also an excellent husband. He always encouraged and motivated Priya to finish her studies. She did PG in Mathematics in the mean time they had a daughter named Khwahish…. Life was beautiful… until her husband was killed in an counter insurgency operation in the hilly region of Arunachal Pradesh in 2012…. Khwahish was only four years old back then.

Everything changed… she was totally traumatized…. On the verge of breaking down she met her husbands boss Colonel Arun Agarwal. He inspired her to face the challenge and become an army officer. Colnel Agarwals proposals were not accepted easily. After lot of hesitation she decided to follow her slain husbands path.

She made the head lines few days ago as one of the newly recruited army officers…. None of the slain army men’s wife has made it so far. She is a unique one…. Her photos with Khawahish(daughter) somehow make my eyes moist whenever I see… it’s the warmth… the love… the passion… Im short of words… all I can say she paid the best possible tribute to her martyr husband. Lady you are a champ… Im sure Naik Amit Sharma is very proud of you wherever he is now…….

What can I say Kahani revisited huh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy birth day to Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan and a big salute to Mr K. Unnikrishnan..... like father like son

Happy Holi everyone. This morning is full of colours... social networking sites are flooded with photos of men/women/children immersed in assorted colours.... happy and gay... but amidst all these post what caught my was that yesterday i.e. 15th March was the birth day of our national hero Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan. We all remember him right??? He is the 31 year old NSG man who sacrificed his live in a fierce battle at the Taj Hotel in Mumbai during November 2008.

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.

Holi at Vrindaban

Holi, the Hindu festival of colors will be celebrated throughout India on 16th and 17th of  March,  2014. Vrindaban is a town in Mathura District of Uttar Pradesh....the place has its own mythological significance. It is believed that lord Krishna was raised in this very place by his foster parents Nanda and Yashoda. His famous love story with Radha also blossomed here. this is an important Hindu pilgrimage site from time immemorial. Vrindaban has tens of hundreds of temples and ashramas. this pious place has a very sad heritage....Hindu widows mostly Bengali widows are brought and abandoned here.... Poor old ladies, literally penniless roam around the city .... begging is the only source of livelihood for these poor creatures .... some of them are lucky to get employed by the temple authorities for cleaning of the temples and the premises. My father visited Vrindaban when he was in college... he was so traumatized after meeting some of them...even this day he flatly refuses to visit Vrindaban again.... he often says that he doesn't have the guts to face any of the poor ladies again.

Here are few photograph of these poor women playing Holi and enjoying themselves. A great initiative by The Times Of India. Loved to see them smile... Im kinda overwhelmed. We all have parents/in laws. some of them are very old but the very idea of abandoning them .... is quite scary.... worse than a nightmare.....  .May God showers them with love and warmth.Photo Courtesy The Times of Inda

 





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.

Is being over friendly with the opposite sex a crime!!!!!!

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.

What's happening!!!!! Hey mor durvaga desh

Gosh!!! What's happening to my motherland. First Guwahati and now its Mumbai.... a girl is openly harassed and stripped, well almost, in broad day light by Janata.
Do you remember what happened in Guwahati,  few months back???? Two young girls merely 16 or 17 years of age were chased by  a rowdy mob as soon as they came out of a pub/ nightclub. One of the girls ran away. But the other one was caught. After that what happened was captured by a cameraman from a news channel and went viral. She was slapped.. stripped... molested.... burnt with cigarette.... whenever she cried public jeered at her.... as if she was some silly plaything. No one came to aid her until police arrived. The cameraman didn't even try to help her, rather he filmed the whole incident. Irony personified
.......
Let's get back to Mumbai. Two girls were on a auto rickshaw. Suddenly they realised that they were out of money. They requested the autowala to bear with them. One of the girls went to borrow money from one of her relative. But when she didn't return within the stipulated time fixed by the autowala.... he started to heckle the poor girl. She handed him over her cell but he wanted his money. The heated argument between them attracted local hooligans playing street cricket.... scared girl started running but was caught and kicked, slapped, heckled, stripped.... and off course molested. She barged into a restaurant but was shooed away.... she tried to board another auto but was pulled out of it.... god knows what could happen when a bike rider and a police man rescued her.
Hats off to Mumbai police.... they convinced her to press charges... initially she had refused to do so. They even captured 3 people associated with the heinous crime.

Women silently fighting for their rights

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

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.

Marry One Get One Free.

Elections have been declared... whole country is gearing up.Speculations are in the air. Every single page of every newspaper is full of election related news. But amidst these hustle and bustle something caught my eyes in today's Anandabazar Patrika.

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.

sau chuhe khake billi haj ko chali.......

Mr N.D. Tewari........what a scumbag, disgusting person you are. Even at the age of 84, being the Governor of a State, you tarnished the pious image of Rajbhavan by sleeping with three girls at a time. You cried foul after being caught. You slept with someone... became the father of her son but again denied your paternity. When he filed a lawsuit you refused to go through the DNA mapping even. When it was proved that he is your biological child, what did you say, "I have every right to live my life my way. No one has the right to look into my private life." And what happened now??? sau chuhe khake billi haj ko chali?

The Mistress Of the Game- Sidney Sheldon & Tilly Bagshaw


This is the sequel of the Master of the Game. I haven’t read the prequel, so was bit sceptic at the beginning. But after reading hardly 2/3 pages I completely forgot that. The story is more or less the same. The struggle for power, for the chairmanship of the business empire of Kruger- Brent. Mighty Kate Blackwell is dead, leaving behind her two grand daughters Alex and Eve. Alex is happily married to Peter Templeton and their son Robbie is the legal heir of the Kruger-Bent. The ugly scheming Eve is unhappily married to a Doc. Keith. Both the sisters conceives but Alex dies after giving birth to a beautiful baby girl “Lexi”. Lexi Templeton is the main protagonist…. She is the Mistress of the game. She has a turbulent childhood. The death of Alex shatters Peter…. He sinks into liquor…the warmth of father-son relationship has long gone…they become complete stranger to each other… Robbie’s homosexuality adds insult to injury…But they both love Lexi unconditionally…. . Robbie feels suffocated…. He loves to explore life…. He has a strong passion for playing piano….. One day he leaves home leaving everything to his dear sister Lexi….

At the age of 8 only Lexi is kidnapped and is sexually harassed too. Though The FBI finally manages to save her but she loses her hearing capacity. Being a deaf woman would she be able to shoulder the responsibility.

Eve on the other hand has a son named Max. He carries Eve’s wicked legacy and hatred. He not only hates his cousins Robbie and Lexi but also hates his father Keith. The hatred is so intense that he kills his father at the age of 10 only.

Time flies. Both Max and Lexi grows up. They are each others toughest competitor. Hate each other openly but deep down something else is brewing. Is it Love, who knows?? What happens next??? Who finally gets Kruger-Brent……The book is full of twists and turns. Definitely a good book. Full of surprises. Crispy language. But some questions remain unanswered…. Like who was the mastermind behind Lexi’s kidnapping??? What happened to Eve??? She apparently loses her sanity then how come she knows everything???
Lastly I simply hated what happenes to Gabe’s wife Tara and his children… it was totally uncalled for.

Gravity






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.

Dallas Buyers Club


Just see their transformation......... Hats off to them!!!!!



What a film!!! Probably the best film I watched in recent time. Mind boggling performances by both Mathew MacConaughey and Jared Leto. Based on a true story, Mathew is Ron Woodroof, an electrician who leaves a reckless life, full of booze, drugs and girls as a result he is detected with AIDS in 1985.  Doctors tell him that he has only 30 days left. He comes to know that there is a drug named AZT which is being administered to the HIV patients on trial basis at the critical stage, as AZT is still under research. He bribes a hospital staff to get the AZT. In the meantime all his friends deserted him. He is labelled as gay… though he is homophobic actually. He meets a gay transvestite Rayon (Jared Leto) at hospital. Jared Leto has already bagged the Golden Globe for best supporting actor for this role. He is surely going to win the Oscar too. What a performance… he’ll make you fall in love with this nagging bag of makeup….portrays every single emotion so beautifully.
Ron (Mathew) drives to Mexico and meets a doc over there, who tells him that AZT is highly poisonous and kills almost every living cell it comes in contact with. He treats Ron with some indigenous medicine of his own and Ron gets better. After three months he drives back to USA with huge supply of the medicine. He in partnership with Rayon (Leto) opens a forum named Dallas Buyers Club and sales those medicines to the AIDS patients. Lots of AIDS patients quits using AZT, this somehow concerns the FDA (Food & Drug Administration), of USA. They confiscate all the drugs. Thus starts the battle between FDA and bunch of AIDS patients lead by Ron.
