Mohsen Shekhari, Iran's martyr#1

The impact of this execution will determine the future course of the protests. The murder by the Iranian state is a grim reminder of the way authoritarian regimes - believers in one-way communication where the state speaks and the citizenry complies - view protests.

China's Xi vows to buy more oil from Mideast countries as US focus wanes

Chinese leader Xi Jinping vowed on Friday to import more oil and natural gas from energy-rich Gulf Arab states while not interfering in their affairs, likely seeking to cast Beijing in a more favourable light than Washington as America's attention in the region wanes. Xi also urged the Arab countries to conduct energy sales in the Chinese yuan, potentially divorcing the U.S. dollar from transactions in a region where the United States still stations thousands of troops across a network of local bases as a hedge against Iran. China's hands-off approach could appeal to leaders such as Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who stands ready to rule the oil-rich kingdom for possibly decades, even after facing widespread international criticism over the killing of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi and the still-raging war in Yemen. During Xi's visit to Saudi Arabia this week, the prince himself welcomed him to a meeting of the clubby Gulf Cooperation Council, and later to a wide

History behind the Navy Day in India

BHPian V.Narayan recently shared this with other enthusiasts.Navy Day 4th December - the history behind the dayOperation Trident was an offensive operation launched by the Indian Navy on Pakistan's port city of Karachi during the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971. It saw the first use of anti-ship-guided missiles in combat in the region. The operation was conducted on the night of 4th-5th December 1971 and inflicted heavy damage on Pakistani naval vessels and shore-based fuel facilities. While India suffered no losses, Pakistan lost a minesweeper, a destroyer, a cargo vessel carrying ammunition, and some fuel storage tanks in Karachi. Another destroyer was also badly damaged enough to be eventually scrapped. India celebrates its Navy Day annually on 4th December to mark this operation. Operation Trident was followed up by a similar Operation Python three days later. In 1971 Karachi housed the headquarters of the Pakistan Navy and almost its entire fleet. Since Karachi was also the hub of Pakistan's maritime trade and the largest industrial city of Pakistan a blockade would be crippling for Pakistan's economy. The security of Karachi Harbour was predominant and it was heavily defended against any air or naval strikes. The port's airspace was secured by the strike aircraft based at airfields in the area. The Indian Navy deemed it unwise to send its World War II vintage cruisers to lay down a naval gun bombardment as they would be too slow and leave the ships vulnerable to a Pakistani air attack. In that era we did not have ship borne surface-to-air-missiles that could have provided some air defense and INS Vikrant, our sole aircraft carrier, had been deployed off the East Coast to blockade East Pakistan. File photo of an Osa class missile boat. The two large canisters on either side house the Styx-guided missiles The IN decided to think out of the box and use its small coastal 209-tonne Osa class missile boats, which carried 4 Styx anti-ship guided missiles each, to bombard Karachi. These were small coastal vessels designed by the Soviets for harbour defense and Karachi was 600+ nautical miles {1100 odd kms} away which these missile boats were not capable of traversing through the open ocean. So before hostilities commenced the IN towed the Osa missile boats to Okha, the small naval port at the western tip of Saurashtra from where Karachi was only ~340 km, a range well within the capability of these boats. Also with their top speed in excess of 38 knots {70 kmph} they could just about strike and return between dusk & dawn. On 4th December, what was now designated as the Karachi Strike Group was formed and consisted of the three boats called the Vidyut-class missile boats by the IN: INS Nipat, INS Nirghat and INS Veer, each armed with four Soviet-made SS-N-2B Styx surface-to-surface missiles with a range of 74 km and ~500 kg warhead, two Petya-class anti-submarine corvettes: INS Kiltan and INS Katchall as anti-submarine and air defence escorts. The group was under the command of Commander Babru Bhan Yadav. As planned, on 4 December, the strike group reached 460 km south off the coast of Karachi, and maintained its position during the day, outside the surveillance range of the Pakistan Air Force. As Pakistani aircraft did not possess night-bombing capabilities, it was planned that the attack would take place between dusk and dawn. At 10.30 pm the Indian task group moved 330 km from its position towards the south of Karachi. Soon Pakistani targets, identified as warships, were detected to the north of the Indian warships. File photo of PNS Khaibar in better days in British service. She was a 3400-tonne destroyer armed with 6 4.5-inch guns, 10 Bofors 40mm guns, a bank of 5 torpedoes and an anti-submarine mortar. She represented the British state of the art of the early 1950s INS Nirghat, the first to strike, sailed north at speed and once in range fired its first Styx missile at PNS Khaibar, a Pakistani Battle-class destroyer. Khaibar, assuming it was a missile from Indian aircraft, engaged its anti-aircraft systems. The missile hit the right side of the ship, exploding below the galley in the electrician's mess deck at 10.45 PM. This led to an explosion in the first boiler room. Subsequently, the ship lost propulsion. Observing that the ship was still afloat, INS Nirghat fired its second missile hitting PNS Khaibar in the second boiler room on the ship's starboard side rapidly sinking the ship and killing 222 sailors. PNS Khaibar, an ex-British Battle class destroyer was one of the two most powerful warships the Pakistanis possessed at the time. Her loss so early in the war was crippling. PNS Shah Jahan in earlier times in British service. She was a 2500-tonne fast destroyer escort or what today are called frigates. After verifying two targets in the area northwest of Karachi, at 11.00 PM, INS Nipat fired two Styx missiles - one each at cargo vessel MV Venus Challenger and its escort PNS Shah Jahan, a C-class destroyer. Venus Challenger was carrying American-supplied ammunition for the Pakistani forces from Saigon. It exploded immediately after the missile hit, and eventually sank south of Karachi. The other missile targeted PNS Shah Jahan and damaged the ship very badly. It was eventually towed back to Karachi & scrapped. File photo of an Adjutant class mine sweeper like PNS Muhafiz At 11.20 PM PNS Muhafiz, an Adjutant-class minesweeper, was targeted by INS Veer. A missile was fired and Muhafiz was struck on the left side, behind the bridge. It sank immediately before it could send a signal to the PNHQ killing 33 sailors. To confuse the Pakistanis, the crews of these ships, who had all been trained in the USSR, spoke to each other over the radio in Russian! Thus the enemy did not realize the Indian navy was close at hand. Later the Western media claimed that Russians were manning the boats {implying Indians were not clever enough to do so!} little realizing in those days a large proportion of IN officers and Petty Officers were fluent in Russian. Meanwhile, INS Nipat continued towards Karachi and targeted the Kemari oil storage tanks, placing itself 26 km south of the Karachi harbour. Two missiles were launched; one misfired, but the other hit the oil tanks, which burned and were destroyed completely. With no casualties on the Indian side, this operation was considered to be one of the most successful in modern naval history up to that time post-World War II. To mark this victory, the Indian Navy annually celebrates Navy Day on 4th December. File photo of the fleet tanker class of ships to which PNS Dacca belonged. A follow-up attack, Operation Python, was launched on the night of 8th/9th December 1971. A strike group consisting of one missile boat INS Vinash and two frigates INS Talwar & INS Trishul attacked the group of ships off the coast of Karachi. While India suffered no losses, the Pakistani fleet tanker PNS Dacca was damaged beyond repair, and the Kemari Oil Storage facility was lost. Two other foreign ships stationed in Karachi were also sunk during the attack. Between Operations Trident and Python, and the Indian Air Force attacks on Karachi's fuel and ammunition depots, more than fifty percent of the total fuel requirement of the Karachi zone was reported to have been destroyed. Our bold deployment surprised the Soviets pleasantly. Later they told us their satellites had captured a part of the operation! The Styx SS-N-2B surface-to-surface guided missile getting launched. Note the folded wings which are yet to open; note the plume of the booster rocket below; note the main cruise rocket motor on top. The missile was the world's first successful anti-ship guided missile and was developed through at least 4 successive improved versions. It carried a radar for guidance and to identify and lock on to targets. It could be called the father of all anti-ship missiles in operation today and set the basic principles of coming in low over the sea and being independent in its guidance and targeting. Commander B.B. Yadav {Lieutenant Colonel in the Army} who commanded the Karachi Attack group in Operation Trident. He passed away in 2010 at the ripe age of 81. He rose to the rank of Commodore {Brigadier in the Army} before serving for some years as a Merchant Navy Master. He was awarded the Maha Vir Chakra. The photo above is from the time of his retirement. Line drawing of the Osa class missile boat which spawned a whole family of ships called missile boats or Fast Attack Craft (Missile). It is rare for a class of warship types to be able to identify a single ship or class as the progenitor of a whole type. Osa is one such. HMS Dreadnought the first fast battleship (1906), USS Nautilius the first nuclear-powered submarine (1953) are two which come immediately to my mind. Note the 4-missile carrying canisters on either side. Note the fore and aft radar directed 30mm two anti-aircraft gun mountings. Displacing a little over 200 tonnes these were powered by 3 diesels on three shafts with an output of 12,000 shp in all, driving the boat to a bit over 38 knots. Like all things Soviets, the design was powerful, fast and packed to the gill. The crew of 28 had one shower and one head (toilet) between them.

Prison taught me how suffering is created: Iranian filmmaker Mahnaz Mohammadi to TNM

IFFK The filmmaker and womens rights activist, who has been jailed many times and banned from travelling abroad, is the winner of the Spirit of Cinema award at the International Film Festival of Kerala. Cris In a letter that was sent to the Cannes Film Festival, where a movie she acted in was premiering, Iranian filmmaker and womens rights activist Mahnaz Mohammadi wrote, I am a woman and a filmmaker, two reasons sufficient to be treated like a criminal in this country. The letter was read aloud because she could not make it there, owing to a travel ban imposed on her for her film work. This December, she was supposed to come to Thiruvananthapuram for the International Film Festival of Kerala (IFFK), but she could not, again because of the travel ban. As a symbolic gesture, however, she sent a lock of her hair to the IFFK through Greek filmmaker Athina Rachel Sangari. Mahnaz is the winner of the Spirit of Cinema award, which the IFFK launched in the last edition to honour filmmakers whose passion for the art was unflinchingly carried forward in spite of the adversities faced by them. And she has faced many, many adversities. Her first film, a documentary called Women Without Shadows on women living in a shelter, came out in 2003. But it was her second film, called Travelogue, where she interviewed people who were leaving the country on a train, that brought her the first travel ban. By then Mahnaz had already faced her first arrest in 2007, when she protested for other womens rights activists who were undergoing trial. In 2011, she acted in a film, Ethereal Marriage, where she played a widow in a relationship with her brother-in-law. It was for this films premiere that she was invited to Cannes, and her letter got read by another filmmaker, Costa-Gavras. That same year, she was arrested again, and kept in prison for two-and-a-half months. After several documentaries, Mahnaz made her first fictional feature in 2019, titled Son-Mother. It tells the story of a widow raising two children, and receiving marriage proposals from a bus driver that she begins to consider. Three years after that, Mahnaz is once again making her voice heard, protesting along with the thousands of Iranian women against the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini, three days after she was taken in by the morality police for allegedly not following the dress code for women in the country. The months-long protests led Iran to reportedly abolish the morality police. In an interview to TNM, Mahnaz talks about her journey from being discriminated against as a female child to becoming the woman who keeps fighting for human rights, despite everything she has been through. After reading about you, the first thing I wondered is how you were driven to be this person who questioned the inequalities in gender, who began fighting for what she thought was right, and who did not mind going to jail for it. How and when in your life did this journey begin for you? The first year I entered school, I was happy to go to school with a red ribbon in my hair and white collar. But the revolution of 1979 happened in the same year. In the New Year, they forced us to wear dark black shawls covering our hair and shoulders. I was always being blamed for forgetting to wear it. I am still living with those reprimands. In the same year, our teacher Mrs Abbasi, who was kind, did not force us to wear dark black shawls at class. Many times, we have watched her putting her shawl in her bag, far away from school. She didn't last long as a teacher. She was rumoured to have been fired. Do you think this is not enough for a girl who felt the wind in her hair and whose only hobby was running in the wind? At what point did you decide to make films, to talk about the subjects you cared about? I used to write for children and teenage magazines and radio, but when I met certain women, I was very influenced by them. I also had many questions, and hence I made documentaries to find the answers. What led to Women without Shadows? Though incarcerated under weird circumstances, they (the women in shelter homes) managed to elicit feelings of love and hope. I remember how after watching that film, my brother wrote a note to me saying the director has depicted her life. I still have that note. Do you feel films have a way of reaching out to more people, the ideas that you want to express? Yes, I believe in the power of film. You said in one interview that you did not think much of your early arrests but the one in 2011, in a small prison, shattered you. What happened, and how did it affect you and your work? It was a torture centre. The most important impact it had was that it proved to me this regime does not follow any moral principles. It lies, tortures, and executes. Today, as I am writing to you, a 23-year-old man named Mohsen Shekhari was executed for protesting in a closed court without access to legal advice. There are many others awaiting execution. That prison taught me how suffering is created. It is essential not to be a part of them. You acted in a film. Ephemeral Marriage also touched on the state of women's lives in Iran. Is that what made you say yes to acting? I am not an actor. Reza Sarkanian (the director) came to Iran to make this film. But almost all the actors he chose said no to him, because they were worried about the government's reaction. At the same time, I was helping him research parts of the script. Reza then asked me [if I could act]. At first it was difficult to accept, but I knew what a strenuous path he had to tread to get the permission. I just wanted this film to be made. But that film was also banned in Iran and was never allowed to be screened. What is the one thing that makes you keep fighting, despite the repeated arrests, bans and confiscations of your property? Living a lie is disgusting. A totalitarian regime forces you to live according to their wishes, which are often miles away from your principles. Still from Son-Mother / Courtesy - IMDB Son-mother is your first venture into fiction. Why fiction, after all these years? All stories are rooted in reality. My preference is to make documentaries, but there are stories that you will never be allowed to make. Everything is according to their will, so I have to choose another way. Mahsa Amini is one of the latest victims of this oppression. You are fighting for her too. Do you have hope that things will change for women one day? Not just in Iran, but everywhere? Right now, many things have changed despite the resistance by the regime, due to the will of the people who are no longer willing to go back. Certainly, change is essential in Iran and similarly everywhere else in the world. Inequality exists anywhere.

Iran executes first anti-hijab protester for waging war against God, activists say many more await same fate

Iran executed the first person in relation to the anti-hijab protests that has rocked the nation since the past three months. A 23-year-old protester Mohsen Shekari was convicted of blocking a road inflicting a knife injury on a paramilitary guard. That incident took place on September 25. Mohsen was convicted by the Revolutionary Court on charges of waging war against God under Islamic Shariah law. He appealed in the Supreme Court but that appeal was turned down on November 20. What has rights groups worried is that many more could be awaiting the same fate as Mohsen, as 11 people linked to the protests have already been sentenced to death by Iranian courts.

No report of starvation deaths from states and UTs, Smriti Irani tells LS

There is no report of starvation deaths from states and Union Territories, the government informed the Lok Sabha on Friday. Responding to a question, Union Women and Child Development Minister Smriti Irani said the Global Hunger Index did not reflect India's true picture as it was a flawed measure of hunger. It should not be taken at face value as it is neither appropriate nor representative of hunger prevalent in a country, she said. India ranked 107th of 121 countries in the Global Hunger Index - 2022 with its child wasting rate, at 19.3 per cent, being the highest in the world. There is no report of starvation deaths from states/UTs, Irani said in a written reply in response to a question on the number of starvation-related deaths among children and adults in India since 2014. Responding to another question, Irani provided data as per which 140,575 children went missing since 2019 and 125,445 children had been recovered during the same period.

US imposes sanctions on six Pakistani companies related to nuclear weapons

Washington: America has expressed concern many times about Pakistan's nuclear weapons. Dangerous nuclear weapons are not safe in this Islamic country with military dominance.

India vs Australia, 1st T20I IND-W vs AUS-W Cricket Match Preview, Prediction, Where To Watch, Probable XI And Fantasy XI Tips

Commonwealth Games silver medallist team India are all set to host T20 World Champions Australia women's team for a 5-match T20I series at home. IND-W vs AUS-W 1st T20I: Match Preview: Team India are on a good roll in T20Is this year, with 13 wins in 20 games. This included an Asia Cup title and a silver medal at Commonwealth Games. Indian Women's team would look to finish the year off on a high with a win against World Champions Australia. However, the Alyssa Healy-led side is a much tougher competition as compared to teams who participated in the Asia Cup. Australia has a strong lineup and have an impressive record against India (6-1). It will also be a challenge for Hrishikesh Kanitkar, who recently took over as the batting coach while Ramesh Powar was shifted to NCA to work with the Men's team. Smriti Mandhana, Jemimah Rodrigues and Shafali Verma have been shouldering the batting for team India this year and are the top three run-getters this year for the team. The batting will revolve around these three along with captain Harmanpreet Kaur. However, apart from Harmanpreet and Jemimah, all the other batters have struggled against the Australian team. In bowling, Renuka Singh, Rajeshwari Gayakwad and Deepti Sharma have picked up 17 wickets combined against Australia since 2021 and will head the bowling department against World Champions. Richa Ghosh and Shafali Verma would also look to kick off their U19 T20 World Cup preparations, which is scheduled to be played next month. While Australia's regular captain Meg Lanning has taken an indefinite break from cricket, Alyssa Healy will be leading the Australian side in the 5-match T20I series against India. Tahlia McGrath (289 runs) and Beth Mooney (244 runs) have been the top scorers for Australia this year in T20Is and would shoulder the batting along with Ellyse Perry and Healy. Healy had an off-season in the T20Is recently with only 78 runs in 9 innings, but her good run in WBBL would give provide her with some confidence. Alana King has been the lead wicket-taker for Australia this year and is expected to enjoy bowling in the Indian conditions and should favour her leg-spinning attribute. Jess Jonassen, Tahlia McGrath and Megan Schutt would be the key bowlers for the Australian team against India women's team. IND-W vs AUS-W 1st T20I: Match Details Date Friday, December 9, 2022 Time 07:00 PM IST Venue Dr DY Patil Sports Academy, Mumbai Match Prediction: Today's Match Prediction? IND-W vs AUS-W 1st T20I The 1st match between two competitive teams is expected to go down the wire with no clear favourites between India and Australia women's team.

Harleen Deol and Yastika Bhatia make their return after being dropped for England series and Asia Cup.

Death sentence to Mohsin in Islamic country for protesting against govt

TEHRAN: A protester was hanged on Thursday (Dec 8) amid nationwide protests following the murder of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini for showing hair from her hijab in the Islamic country. The identity of the protester who has been hanged has been revealed as Mohsin Shekari. This is the first case of capital punishment related to the Iran protests. Mohsin was found guilty on September 25 of blocking the Sattar Khan Boulevard road in Tehran and injuring a security guard. He was found guilty of waging war against Allah under Iran's Sharia law. He appealed against its decision. But the apex court upheld the decision on 20 November. Human rights activists have reacted sharply to Mohsin Shekari's death sentence. Amnesty International has issued a statement saying that the protester has been sentenced to death for crushing anti-government protests. At the same time, America has expressed objection to the death sentence given to a protester amid anti-government protests in Iran. America has said that this will worsen the situation in the country.

Let's read this article further: Interview Highlights What to do to crack MBA Admission Interviews? Generally, how do MBA candidates present themselves in an interview? ......... are often influenced by the feedback they get about this from their peers, coaching centers, and other such sources. But, despite thorough preparation, interview panels often find MBA candidates lacking in genuineness and originality. Especially when a candidate has to tell about his/her strengths and weaknesses, it will be better for the candidates if they try to be truthful and precise in their approach. No member of the interview panel expects that the candidate will have an understanding and knowledge of every topic. So, being clear and honest during an MBA interview can help you impress the interview panel better. The panel does not pay much attention to how the candidate is dressed or how he presents himself. Since it is natural for any candidate to be a little nervous and jittery during the interview, therefore, generally, the panel does not consider it as a disadvantage against the candidate. But, during the interview itself, the interviewers also check your academic skills and professional experience. On the academic front, the panel will try to judge how well you have performed in your studies?.....and whether you are capable of handling the pressure that an MBA student goes through during an MBA program. Similarly, the interview panel will also ask questions related to your work experience so that they can know how much professional life experience you have. Candidates are expected to share with the panel specific experiences of their professional life such as, what challenges they faced and what strategies they adopted to overcome those challenges. Apart from this, the panel will also try to find out how much knowledge you have about the organization and industry in which you worked. RELATED STORIES An important part of this definition is that as a well-rounded professional, you should not only take care of your career interest and job interest but also pay full attention to the happenings around you. If you do not demonstrate this attitude in the interview, then it seems that you are missing a bit in your approach. Top Indian business schools look for these skills in their MBA candidates The most important quality that business schools look for in an MBA candidate is the candidate's ability and talent to complete the rigorous and demanding MBA program. In this regard, they first check the academic capability of the candidate. Students who have a strong academic track record, their academic track records let the business school's selection committee know that the student can complete the pace and pressure of an MBA program, both in terms of curricular and extra-curricular aspects. have the ability to do. Similarly, business schools try to check other aspects of the students other than academics in which the candidates have achieved some mastery or achievement. It can be any hobby of the candidates or information about special events happening around the candidates or general information etc. Showing mastery and interest in an extra-curricular area show that you are not just a 'bookworm' but also deeply interested in life around you. Similarly, if you have work experience, the business school tries to find out how interested you are in your job, the company you worked in, and the industry you worked in. The business school will also try to find out how aware you are of serious economic or business trends in the field you worked in. Indian students learn these skills in their MBA program During an MBA program, a student acquires skills in 2 broad categories. The first category is technical or functional skills. These skills are related to core business fundamentals such as finance, accounting, operations, and marketing. In a business school, you will get complete information or review related information about all these business fundamentals and also understand the practical importance of these fundamentals while doing business. Another aspect of an MBA program that is often overlooked by MBA students is the behavioral aspects of the program. They are also known colloquially as soft skills. Behavioral skills are very important for business managers. These skills enhance your ability to work with many people who may not necessarily share your views. Soft skills help managers to resolve conflicts and these skills teach managers to effectively interact with people, especially in situations where people and their work depend on each other.

US hits prominent Turkish biz executive with Iranian oil sanctions

The Biden administration is imposing sanctions on a prominent Turkish businessman reportedly close to Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan for violations of US restrictions on the sales of Iranian oil. The Treasury Department announced Thursday it was penalizing Sitki Ayan and a number of companies he and his family and associates control for facilitating the sale of hundreds of millions of dollars of Iranian oil for Iran's Revolutionary Guard. Ayan and his firms have also laundered the proceeds of those sales for both the Guard and Lebanon's Hezbollah movement, both of which are designated as foreign terrorist organizations by the US, Treasury said. The sanctions include a freeze on any assets Ayan or the targeted companies may have in US jurisdictions and bar Americans from doing any business with them. Ayan's companies have established international sales contracts for Iranian oil with foreign purchasers, arranged shipments of oil, and helped launder the proceeds, obscuring t

IFFK highlights: Silent films with live piano, 32 female directors, LGBTQIA+ narratives

IFFK The International Film Festival of Kerala (IFFK) will be held between December 9 and 16, across various theatres in Keralas Thiruvananthapuram. Cris Delegates have fun at the previous edition of IFFK On December 7, a Wednesday, there are just a few odd people hovering around the make-shift film festival offices at the Tagore Theatre. A vast campus placed at an enviable spot in Thiruvananthapuram, the premise will turn into a whole different place in the next two days. December 9 is the first day of the International Film Festival of Kerala (IFFK), which will be held across different venues in the capital city of Thiruvananthapuram. Owing to COVID-19 the last two editions suffered delayed schedules, making this the second fest to happen in a year. But going back to its routine, the IFFK is ready to welcome 12,000 and more delegates into its fold this December. It was not easy, says the new artistic director of the festival, Deepika Suseelan. We had only two and a half months in all to do the whole programme. By that, she means everything from inviting entries to selecting movies to fixing a jury and accommodating the guests. The last IFFK, held in March this year, was handled by renowned film editor Bina Paul Venugopal, a veteran in overseeing the IFFK, having been the artistic director for most of its 27 editions. Deepika, with her experience of handling three back-back-back IFFIs (International Film Festival of India), which happens in Goa every November, and an edition of the IFFK in 2014, says it is a misconception that all the selection is done from the movies sent in applications. Only the Indian and Malayalam cinema sections come through applications. But the majority of the world cinema and competition films are chosen after a lot of research, scouting through previous festivals, using contacts, and convincing those who are little reachable to come, she says. Deepika Suseelan She is glad that many big names could make it despite the last-minute planning. Bela Tarr, a legendary filmmaker from Hungary, is one of the people who agreed to come despite health issues. He will be receiving thelifetime achievement award this year, and six of his films have been included in a package charmingly titled, The Melancholy Worlds of Bela Tarr. This is a filmmaker who began with ordinary films for ordinary people and then fell into stories of pessimism. Silent films with piano and Serbian masterpieces Another promising package is the series of silent films in two different sections. One of these is coming with live piano, by Jonny Best, resident pianist at the BFI Southbank, a cinema house in the UK. It will begin with the screening of the German horror film, Nosferatu, a straight-off-the-coffin vampire film from a hundred years ago, made by the legendary FM Murnau. Murnau, who died in 1931, has a separate package, apart from Jonny's five. Poster of Nosferato/ IFFK It is also new to IFFK that Serbia becomes the country of focus this time. At a fest that mostly focuses on films from Latin America, Asia, and African countries each year, the newest and best works from a different nation become a highlight every year. Serbia as a country of focus has not been done before. Neither were Serbian films chosen for any recent big film festivals. And the IFFK is a festival that always initiates things. Films like the Working Class Heroes from Serbia blow you away. We have also included four of Emir Kusturicas movies, Deepika says. Emir, a maestro from Serbia, is known for telling stories of people from the margins. 32 films by women filmmakers There are 32 films by female directors in a fest that features more than 185 movies from 17 countries. That was not a planned move, Deepika says. The only consideration came in reaching out to as many women filmmakers as possible to bring their works to the decision table, she adds. After that, there is no special consideration and no woman filmmaker demands it. They make great films. As a rule, I dont look at the filmmaker's name while watching films and taking a call, so there is no bias. I was amazed when 32 names came to the final list. You should watch films like Night Siren, written by a woman and directed by another. It is just wonderful. On the other hand, I was surprised to see that a film like A room of my own was done by a male filmmaker, she says. Unruly, by Danish filmmaker Malou Reymann, is among the 32 films by women directors Of the movies she mentions, Night Siren is a horror drama about a Slovakian woman who goes back to her hometown to solve the mysteries of her childhood, while A Room of my own is a Georgian film about a woman who rents a room from another and discovers what it is like to be free. LGBTQIA+ centric films As always, 14 films are in the competition category, two of these in Malayalam, and another two from other Indian languages. Lijo Jose Pellisserys first Mammootty film, Nanpakal Nerathu Mayakkam, will have its premiere while Mahesh Narayanans Ariyippu, which has already been to festivals, will feature in the competition category. A Manipuri film called Our Home and a Hindi film called A place of our own are the other Indian films in competition. The latter is about the struggle of two transgender persons in finding a home. The fest includes quite a few films on the LGBTQIA+ community. Deepika mentions Paloma, a Brazillian film about a transexual woman who decides to get married in a church, and Lord of the Ants, a biopic on Italian poet and playwright Aldo Braibanti, who was jailed in 1968 under an anti-gay law. Lord of the Ants Two categories celebrating golden jubilees are one for Adoor Gopalakrishnans Swayamvaram, and another is a retrospective for American scriptwriter Paul Schrader. Ninety-three-year-old Alejandro Jodorowsky, making Chilean-French avant-garde films, also gets a package. Read: Legacy of Adoors debut film Swayamvaram lives on 50 years since its release Special screenings including restored classics last editions Kummatty still lingers in the mind auteur odes, and the midnight screening of a horror film (an Indonesian one, aptly titled Satans Slaves), are all to look forward to. The only thing left to decide is the guest for the opening day, December 9. Sadly, Mahnaz Mohammadi, the Iranian filmmaker who was declared the winner of IFFKs Spirit of Cinema award, cannot make it. The opening film is however fixed a French feature titled Tori and Lokita, from the Dardenne brothers. Deepika says it is unlike their usually slow-paced films on a big canvas. This is a shorter canvas and a more paced one. Quite a few cute and fun-to-watch films are there, she promises. The IFFK ends on December 16.

Selection Depends On Performances, Those Who Have Done Well Are In The Side: Harmanpreet Kaur

Mumbai, Dec 8, In their five T20Is against Australia starting from Friday at the DY Patil Stadium, India have left out off-spin all-rounders Sneh Rana and Dayalan Hemalatha as well as big-hitting batter Kiran Navgire, who was seen as a finisher in the side. Instead, they have brought in left-arm fast-bowler Anjali Sarvani, who topped the bowling charts in the Senior Women's T20 Trophy (with 17 scalps) and Senior Women's Inter-Zonal T20 Trophy (10 wickets). Alongside her, leg-spin allrounder Devika Vaidya also marks a return to the T20I setup after eight years. On the eve of the series opener, captain Harmanpreet Kaur said the door to the India T20I team was not closed on Sneh, Dayalan, and Kiran, but that consistent domestic performers like Anjali and Devika have been rewarded with call-ups to the national team. The members of the team have performed well, especially the new girls who have done really well in the domestic circuit. If you talk about Anjali, she took the highest wickets and then others have done well too and won matches for their respective teams. Selection depends on your performances and those who have done well are in the side. For Sneh Rana and all are good players; in the upcoming tournaments whenever they'll do well, they'll definitely come back. We are always having an eye on them. It's not like if today they are not on the side, we are ignoring them. Definitely they are part of the system and when they perform, they will come back, she said in the pre-match press conference. ] When India will play against Australia in the T20I series opener on Friday, the equal pay policy, which was announced in October, will come into effect. As per the policy, India women's players will get INR 15 lakh per Test match, INR 6 lakh per ODI, and INR 3 lakh for a T20I game. Harmanpreet believes that equal pay policy will bring more responsibility on women cricketers. It's an outstanding decision taken by the BCCI. As a sportsperson, we always want to get that recognition, and equal pay is something which will bring a lot of motivation for the current players and the upcoming stars. The motivation given by the BCCI that gives us a lot of responsibility now because whenever we go out to play now, we know many people are watching us and want to give our 100 per cent. We have played really well, and the last three months have been very special for the way we played. We are looking very positive and with Hrishi sir (Hrishikesh Kanitkar as batting coach) in, he also brings in a lot of positivity. Harmanpreet also thinks that pay parity will bring a change towards how women's cricket is viewed in the country and that it should extend to domestic competitions in future. This was the first step, and I am sure, going forward, there will be a lot of good news for women's cricket. For that, we have to take a lot of responsibility as a team and play very good cricket. We have been reaching finals of the tournament but could not lift the major titles. But still, the way we are playing has changed a lot of things in the country. I am sure the BCCI must be thinking about (equal pay) in domestic cricket as well. Domestic cricket is very important. Now, the Women's IPL is coming, and all those things will be important for domestic cricketers. There is money involved, and with that we will get a lot of good domestic matches. Things are and will come to you. We just need to perform. Harmanpreet revealed that opener Shafali Verma and wicketkeeper-batter Richa Ghosh will not play all five T20Is against Australia due to the duo being a part of the India squad for the inaugural Under-19 Women's T20 World Cup in South Africa. With the tournament happening in January, they will also miss the tri-series featuring hosts' South Africa and West Indies due to the clash of dates. The tri-series marked an important preparation for the Indian team in the lead-up to the senior Women's T20 World Cup from February 10-26. The U-19 camp will start after a few days and for Richa and Shafali, this tournament (against Australia) is important. They are part of the U-19 World Cup, but before that if they get a chance to play against Australia, it will boost their confidence. Till the (India U19) camp is announced, they will definitely join the Under-19 camp as Shafali is leading. When we will play the tri-series in South Africa, they are definitely not available because they will be playing the Under-19 World Cup. For that, we have other players who will come in and join, she concluded. The U-19 camp will start after a few days and for Richa and Shafali, this tournament (against Australia) is important. They are part of the U-19 World Cup, but before that if they get a chance to play against Australia, it will boost their confidence.

Rapid Road inaugurated in Bengalurus Indiranagar by CM Bommai

Infrastructure According to a note issued by the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), the cost of rapid roads is 40 to 43% more when compared to white topping work. TNM Staff On November 8, Bengaluru's Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai inaugurated the Rapid Road that the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) had been working on at Binnamangala junction. The construction was completed after the CM gave the BBMP the go-ahead to focus on building durable, cost-effective roads around the city. According to reports, the Rapid Road Work (RRW) trial project between Old Madras Road and 100 Feet Road Indiranagar extends all the way to BDA Junction.The work was much faster compared to the white topping project. The pilot project will be observed for 15 days to know its feasibility. Over 20 tonnes of weight can pass on this newly built stretch. The technology involved laying of precast concrete slabs, joining each of them systematically. The cost is more when compared to white topping. I have asked the BBMP officials to work on reducing the cost and directed them to give a report on this, said Bommai while inaugurating the road. According to a note issued by the BBMP, the cost of rapid roads is 40 to 43% more when compared to white topping work which also takes longer time to be built. The project costs about Rs 12,976 per cubic metre, 43% more than White Topping Project which costs Rs 9,076 per cubic metre. The note also claims that the life span of a rapid road is 100 years while white topped roads is 30 years. Furthermore, the note also says that precast rapid roads could be completed in 3 days with minimum inconvenience to motorists in comparison to white topped roads. However, in an earlier report, TNM had reported how the road took longer to be completed and ended up causing inconvenience to motorists who had to take a detour while the road was closed for nearly two weeks. White-topping is a process where the normal black-top roads or the bitumen asphalt roads are cleared and the roads are given a layer of concrete on top. The concrete used is considered more long-lasting and is believed to prevent the formation of potholes. Meanwhile, the rapid method involved pre-cast concrete slabs that are 20 feet long and five feet wide, prepared in a factory and embedded in the road.

1200 students fell ill just before anti-hijab protest, everyone had same problem...

Tehran: Just a day before the ongoing anti-hijab protests in Iran, around 1,200 students of the Islamic country's largest university have become seriously ill. The thing to note is that all the students who have fallen ill are suffering from the same problem. These include vomiting, severe body pain, and brain problem. According to the National Student Union, all the students of Kharajami and Ark University are currently admitted to the hospital. The union alleges that the government and its agencies had poisoned the water of the hostels of these students so that the students could not protest against the government and the hijab. The student union has alleged that poison has been mixed in the water supply source of the hostel. At the same time, after this allegation, the government officials of Iran have clarified that they believe that the students have fallen ill. The reason for this is bad water. Bacteria flourished in the water and the students fell ill after drinking it. The special thing is that on Tuesday (December 6) also exactly the same incident took place in two universities of Tehran. Then students of Tehran's Al Jahra and the Isfahan University of Technology fell ill in the same way. It is being told that bad water was being supplied from the official canteen. The union has said on a Telegram channel that, we had informed the administration regarding the incident at Isfahan University. There is no doubt that students have been victims of mass food poisoning. According to media reports, the situation has become so bad that even the medicines for de-hydration have run out in the university clinics. Therefore, it is being suspected that all this has been done under a plan so that the students could not participate in the Hijab and anti-government protests. The Students' Union alleges that the government is spreading rumors about abolishing the Morality Police to create misunderstanding among the students. Meanwhile, there has been a major political upheaval as well. Iran's former President Mohammad Khatami has announced his support for the hijab and anti-government protesters. Mohammad Khatami, 79, was the President of Iran in 1997 and 2005. He has said that the present Iranian government is taking away the rights of the common people and those who are raising their voices against it are being punished. This is very dangerous for the country.

Filmmaker Don Palathara lists what not to miss at Keralas IFFK

IFFK As part of the International Film Festival of Kerala, films from across the world will be screened simultaneously on fourteen screens in Thiruvananthapuram from December 9 to 16. Don Palathara A still from the Lav Diaz film 'When The Waves are Gone' The International Film Festival of Kerala (IFFK) is a mammoth event, not only in terms of the number of attendees, but also the number of films screened there each year. Films from across the world will be screened simultaneously on fourteen screens in Keralas capital city of Thiruvananthapuram for six days, excluding the opening and closing days. The 27th edition of the festival, scheduled to be held from December 9 to 16, is special to me for several reasons. Even though I am attending the festival with a professional obligation, many of the films being screened this time are from filmmakers whose works I admire and look up to. By now, I have realised from past experience that it is better to have a plan in place while approaching the festival, in order not to miss out on some gems. So here goes my schedule: Day 1: On the 9th of December, I wish to watch the festivals opening film Tori and Lokita by Dardenne brothers. This film won the Cannes 75th Anniversary Award, its prolific director duo Jean-Pierre Dardenne and Luc Dardenne known for their unique style and exploration of socio-political themes. Day 2: The most important attraction of this edition of the IFFK is the several retrospectives its catering. As part of the retrospective on Paul Schrader, The Last Temptation of Christ by Martin Scorsese will be screened in Kairali. But at the same time, there will be Bela Tarrs Family Nest playing in the New Theatre for the retrospective on the Hungarian master of slow cinema. Three great silent films by German pioneer F W Murnau are also available on the same day. Locarno award nominee Ariyippu by Mahesh Narayanan will have its Indian Premiere in the Tagore Theatre at 2.30 pm. Filipino master Lav Diazs latest film When The Waves are Gone is another film that cannot be missed before going to bed on Friday night. Day 3:Along with the films of Murnau and Tarr, Iranian auteur Jafar Panahis No Bears is something most cinephiles would be looking out for. Emir Kusturicas 1998 film Black Cat, White Cat will be screened as part of the retrospective on the Serbian filmmaker, who is immensely loved by Malayali cinephiles. The most confusing time during this entire festival would be around 6 pm on Day 3, as there are so many films to choose from. Mia Hansen-Loves One Fine Morning, Ulrich Seidls Rimini, Hong Sang-soos The Novelists Film, R.M.N. by Cristian Mungiu, and Carl Theodor Dreyers The Parsons Widow are all screening at the same time. Mia Hansen-Love has been showcased at the IFFK before, her most recent one being Bergman Island. Ulrich Seidl, the maker of the Paradise trilogy, has consistently been good at juxtaposing religion and dark humour. Hong Sang-soo, popular for his simple films exploring complex ideas, is often compared to Ozu. Cristian Mungiu has made some provocative films in the past, so it would be interesting to see what he has to offer too. But, as this is a rare opportunity to experience a Dreyer film on the big screen, I might eventually choose The Parsons Widow. Scorseses Taxi Driver, German expressionist masterpiece Nosferatu, Claire Deniss new film Both Sides of the Blade, and Darren Aronofskys The Whale, which is already popular for Brendan Frasers astounding performance, are also screening on the same day. With all these great choices, I suppose this would be the most exhausting day for film lovers. Day 4:Another gem from the silent era, Foolish Wives by Erich von Stroheim accompanied by live music, Schraders Master Gardener and Mishima: A Life In Four Chapters, the prolific Hong Sang-soos Walk Up, and jury member Alvaro Brechners A Twelve-Year Night are the films I look forward to on the 12th of December. A midnight screening of horror film Satans Slaves happens at Nishagandhi. An interesting clash between Adoor Gopalakrishnans Swayamvaram and restored version of G Aravindans Thampu will also be happening in the evening. Read: Legacy of Adoors debut film Swayamvaram lives on 50 years since its release Day 5: The 1964 Band of Outsiders, directed by Jean Luc Godard who was awarded a lifetime achievement award in the 2020 IFFK, can be viewed at Sree Padmanabha. Day 5s Murnau film is Tabu: A Story of the South Seas. Tarrs Werckmeister Harmonies, The Phantom Carriage by Victor Sjostrom, second screenings of several interesting films including Taxi Driver, The Whale, and movies by Mia Hansen-Love and Panahi are all the attractions of December 13. Day 6: Several films are having their final screenings on this day, including Liv Diazs When the Waves are Gone, Krzysztof Zanussis The Perfect Number, and Park Chan-Wooks Decision to Leave. Lijo Jose Pellisserys Mammootty starrer Nanpakal Nerathu Mayakkam and Mahesh Narayanans Ariyippu are also doing their final screenings according to the schedule. One will be forced to choose between surrealist filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowskys The Holy Mountain and Emir Kusturicas Promise Me This for the night show. Day 7:Russian master Aleksander Sokurovs new film Fairytale will have its second show at the festival in Kalabhavan at 9.30 am. At the same time, First Reformed by Paul Schrader and Palme dOr winner Triangle of Sadness by Ruben Ostlund are also playing. I would rather be at the Tagore theatre for the lecture by Bela Tarr at 11.30 am than for any film. At the same time, The Man From London by Tarr will be played in Nila. It will be ones last chance to watch Jodorowskys The Dance of Reality, Kusturicas Life is a Miracle and Underground, Padmarajans Oridathoru Phayalvan, Broker by Hirokazu Kore-eda, and Rimini by Seidl on Day 7. Day 8: As the closing day, 16th of December is not providing a lot of options to cinephiles, except for the final shows of Hong Sang-soos The Novelists Film, Kusturicas Promise Me This, and Panahis No Bears. There can be a lot of great films I have missed out, either due to my lack of knowledge or personal biases. I dont particularly enjoy the films of Kusturica or Jodorowsky personally, but I think it is still important to mention them in this list. The criteria for preparing this watchlist was not to find the films that would resonate with my personal taste, but to approach the festival as a film student. Don Palathara is a critically acclaimed film director and screenwriter from Kerala. The views expressed are the authors own.

Putin acknowledges that Russia's conflict in Ukraine may last for a while

LONDON: Russian President Vladimir Putin has admitted that his military can fight in Ukraine for a long time, but troops will not be called in for a second time for the time being. It could be a long process, Putin said in a televised meeting with supporters on Wednesday. They rarely discussed the likely length of the war they had started more than nine months earlier. In response to Ukrainian counter-offensives in the east and south, armed with increasing amounts of Western weapons since July, Russia has been forced to make several significant retreats. Also Read: New president of Peru is sworn in after Castillo's removal from office In February, Russia launched what it referred to as its special military operation, claiming that Ukraine's growing ties to the West posed a security threat. According to Kiev and its allies, the invasion resembles an imperialist land grab. In the latest in a series of warnings that appeared intended to discourage Kiev's Western backers from more robust involvement, Putin said his comments were making a nuclear war more likely, but added that Russia was carelessly Will not threaten to use such weapons. Putin said, we understand what nuclear weapons are, so we have not gone mad. Unlike any other nuclear country, we have these means in a more sophisticated and contemporary form. But we are not going to start showing this weapon like a razor in public. Of the 300,000 reservists activated in September and October, about 150,000 were sent to Ukraine, the official said, with 77,000 serving in combat units. 150,000 people were still enrolled in training facilities. According to Putin, in these circumstances there is no point in talking about any additional mobilization measures. Also Read: Iranian executions increased by more than 50% this year According to the central bank, Russia's economy has recovered from the temporary slowdown brought on by the partial mobilization order, but the deflationary effects caused by the slump in consumer demand have almost disappeared.

He claimed that Russia's annexation of four partially occupied territories in September, which was declared illegal by Ukraine and most UN members, had already achieved significant results.

This information was provided by Interfax Ukraine. Recent Russian airstrikes on critical infrastructure in eight waves have severely damaged the grid and caused unplanned and emergency blackouts across the country, including Kiev, Ukraine's capital and largest city with three million residents. also includes. Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko warned of an apocalyptic scenario this winter without electricity, water or heat if Russian airstrikes on infrastructure continue. Although they should be prepared to do so, he said there is no immediate need to evacuate residents. In an interview with Reuters, Klitschko said that Kiev could be without central heating at a time when temperatures could drop as low as 15 C (5 F). In response to what it described as a terrorist threat, Russia's ally Belarus announced it was moving troops and military equipment. The announcement comes amid signs that Moscow could pressure Minsk to open a new front in Ukraine as the war continues. Despite relying on the Russian military to crush a popular uprising two years ago, President Alexander Lukashenko has so far refrained from sending his troops into the conflict in Ukraine. On Saturday, Russian Defense Minister, Sergei Shoigu unexpectedly arrived in Minsk, the capital of Belarus, to sign an amendment to the two countries' security cooperation agreement. The new terms were not made public. The Belarusian Security Council announced on Wednesday that over the next two days, troops and equipment would move into the country and training with simulated weapons would take place, according to state news agency Belta.

New president of Peru is sworn in after Castillo's removal from office

LIMA: In a day of dramatic political events, the Peruvian Congress on Wednesday swore in a new president. The previous president, Pedro Castillo, had been removed from office just hours earlier in his impeachment trial. With 101 votes in favor of Castillo's removal, six against, and 10 abstentions, lawmakers proceeded with the previously scheduled impeachment trial, ignoring Castillo's attempt to close the legislature by decree. After the result was announced to raucous applause, Vice President Dina Boluaarte was appointed by the legislature. Bolurate becomes Peru's first female president when she takes the oath of office until 2026. Also Read: The road to Hawaii is in limbo as Mauna Loa lava continues to crawl. To resolve the crisis, he called for a political truce and announced the formation of a new cabinet that would include members from all political parties. Castillo's decision to dissolve Congress was condemned by him as an attempted coup. After voting to remove Castillo, Peru's national police posted a picture on Twitter of him sitting unrestrained in a police station and claimed that he had interfered with the carrying out of his duties. It was not known whether he was arrested or not. Castillo had previously announced that he would temporarily dissolve Congress, install a government of exception and schedule new elections for the legislature. His ministers resigned as a result, fueling furious accusations that he was planning a coup from both his allies and the opposition. He was warned by the army and police that the manner in which he tried to dissolve the Congress was illegal. Some smaller, relatively quiet street protests took place. Dozens of people waving Peruvian flags celebrated Castillo's defeat in Lima, and his supporters marched throughout the capital and Arequipa. Pedro, the people are with you, one of them announced at a signal. Also Read: Iranian executions increased by more than 50% this year There were many police officers wearing plastic helmets and shields around the Government Palace and Congress in Lima. Years of political unrest in Peru led to corruption charges against several leaders, several attempts to remove them from office, and shortened presidential terms. The most recent legal dispute began in October when Castillo was charged with violating the constitution for allegedly allowing a criminal organization to profit from state contracts and obstructing investigations. Castillo was called before Congress last week to answer claims of moral incapacity for the office. Castillo referred to the allegations as slander carried out by organizations hoping to capitalize on and seize power that they lost in the elections. Since he took office in July 2021, the left-leaning teacher-turned-president has resisted two previous attempts to remove him from office. But after his attempt on Wednesday to dissolve the Congress, his allies turned against him and regional powers stressed the importance of maintaining democratic stability. The US ambassador to Peru, Lisa Kenna, said on Twitter that the US categorically rejects any extra-constitutional act by President Castillo to prevent Congress from fulfilling its mandate. The unrest roiled markets at the world's No. 2 copper producer, but analysts claimed Castillo's ouster could be good news for investors as he has been up against a hostile Congress since taking office.

Court sentenced Ex president of Theranos inc. nearly 13 years in prison for fraud

United States: A US judge on Wednesday sentenced Ramesh Sunny Balwani, the former chairman of Theranos Inc, to 12 years and 11 months in prison for defrauding investors and patients of the Elizabeth Holmes-led blood testing startup. A spokeswoman for the US attorney's office confirmed. Balwani was sentenced by US District Judge Edward Davila in San Jose, California, on two counts of conspiracy and ten counts of fraud after being convicted by a jury in July. Prosecutors claimed that Balwani, 57, and Holmes, 38, conspired to defraud Silicon Valley investors into believing that the company was able to accurately run a wide range of medical diagnostic tests from a small amount of blood. Efficient miniature machines have been developed. Also Read: The road to Hawaii is in limbo as Mauna Loa lava continues to crawl.

After Holmes said she would take the stand and testify that Balwani was abusive in their relationship, Davila gave each a separate trial. He has denied the allegations. In January, Holmes was indicted on four counts of fraud and conspiracy but was acquitted of defrauding patients.

Travel Tips: These 8 dargahs with historical importance work to increase the attraction of Delhi

The country's capital Delhi is called the image of India where people of every religion, region, and dialect will be found. Just as there are people of every religion here, similarly there are historical buildings of every religion. Delhi is known for its rich history and heritage in which many old and beautiful dargahs have also made their place. These dargahs are famous for one reason or the other, some of which we will tell you about today. Yes, today we are going to tell you about some such dargahs of Delhi which work to increase the attraction of Delhi and you can spend time peacefully here. Let's know about these dargahs... Dargah of Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya The Dargah of the popular Sufi saint Sheikh Nizamuddin Auliya is near Humayun's Tomb in Delhi. It is located west of Nizamuddin in Delhi and is visited by thousands of pilgrims every week. The shrine of Nizamuddin Auliya was built after his death in 1325. The existing dargah has been greatly renovated at this time. Not only Muslims, but people of Hindu, Christian, and other religions also visit this dargah. The descendants of Nizamuddin Auliya take full care of the dargah. If you visit the dargah in the evening, you will find devotees singing qawwalis in the marble-studded mandap. These qawwalis are sung in honor of the great Sufi saints Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya and Amir Khusrau. Women devotees are not allowed inside the Nizamuddin Dargah premises. But women can see his grave through a marble net. Qutubuddin Bakhtiyar Kaki's Dargah Qutbuddin Bakhtiyar Kaki was another popular saint of the Sufi Chishti order in Delhi. He was one of the first spiritual successors of Moinuddin Chishti. He was honored by the Delhi Sultan as well as by the Lodi dynasty. His dargah in Mehrauli is quite beautiful to look at as well as having a spiritual aura. Its western wall is covered with many colored tiles. It is said about this wall that was built by Aurangzeb. People of all religions prostrate at this historic Qutub Sahib dargah. There are many interesting stories about this historical monument which comes under the Archaeological Survey of India. The place comes alive with the qawwali that is held here every Thursday and Friday. During this, a lot of crowd of people can also be seen. Khwaja Naseeruddin Chirag-e-Delhi The Dargah of Hazrat Khwaja Naseeruddin Roshan Chirag Dehlavi is near Chirag Delhi's BRT corridor. To reach here you have to pass through the narrow streets of the village. Khwaja Nasiruddin Chirag-i-Delhi was a famous Sufi saint of the 14th century. He was the fifth spiritual successor of Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya. After his death, the Sufi Chishti order in Delhi was disbanded. It is said that Naseeruddin Mahmud then performed a miracle by lighting the lamp with water instead of oil. His tomb at Chirag Delhi was built by Firoz Shah Tughlaq. His tomb has been renovated several times and today it consists of a square chamber with 12 pillars. Even today this attractive mausoleum is worth visiting. Hazrat Inayat Khan Dargah A lesser-known monument, the Dargah of Hazrat Inayat Khan is private property and maintained with the help of a private trust with its own rules and regulations. The roads around the dargah are steep and congested, but due to its proximity to Nizamuddin, the dargah is well maintained. The architecture of the dargah is quite beautiful covered with high stone walls. The Hindustani Sangeet Academy, the Delhi Gharana of Hindustani classical music has a presence on the campus. Qawwali is organized every Friday evening in the dargah. This Dargah is famous for Qawwali. Dargah of Hazrat Shah Kalim-ullah Jahanabadi Hazrat Shah Kalim-ullah Jahanabadi was the grandson of Ustad Ahmad Lahori, the architect of the Taj Mahal. He was a revered Sufi saint and enjoyed the patronage of the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan. He is named 'Jahanabadi' because he lived in the newly built Mughal capital, Shahjahanabad or Jehanabad. His mausoleum is in Meena Bazaar of Old Delhi, between the Jama Masjid and the Red Fort. It is a simple pilgrimage center where a Urs is organized every year to commemorate his death anniversary. Hazrat Matka Shah Baba Dargah The Dargah of Hazrat Matka Shah Baba is situated near Purana Quila. It is said that he came from Iran around 750 years ago and attracted a large number of followers with his miraculous healing powers. People of all religions come to his dargah to fulfill their wishes. People coming here offer roasted gram, milk, and jaggery to the Pir in an earthen pot, so you will find a lot of utensils here. It is a popular dargah, where a crowd of thousands of people can be seen. Bibi Fatima's dargah The Dargah of Bibi Fatima is dedicated to the female Sufi saint. Most of the major dargahs in the city, including that of Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya, bar women from entering the sanctum sanctorum. Women can enter the premises but are not allowed to enter the main chamber where the revered saint was buried. The Dargah of Bibi Fatima is in a residential area near Kaka Nagar. This serene, pristine place remains open to all. It is not forbidden for any man or woman to come here. Very few people know about Bibi Fatima Sam. There is hardly any information about where she came to Sufism and for what reasons. The dargah remains open all the time in day and night. Dargah of Hazrat Shah Turkman Bayabani Located on the east side of Turkman Gate, the Dargah of Hazrat Shah Turkman Bayabani is one of the oldest pilgrimage centers in Delhi. Hazrat Shah Turkman Bayabani belonged to the Bayabani sect. He preferred to live in solitude and the place where his dargah is situated was once a dense forest. You can also go here for spiritual peace...

The road to Hawaii is in limbo as Mauna Loa lava continues to crawl.

Honolulu; A week and a half after the world's largest volcano erupted, officials in Hawaii are still bracing for slow-moving lava hitting a key Big Island road, even though scientists are unsure when or if it will even happen . According to US Geological Survey scientists, lava from Mauna Loa, which began erupting on November 27 after being dormant for 38 years, was 1.8 miles (2.89 km) from Saddle Road, which is also known as Route 200 or Daniel K. Also known as the Inouye Highway. Wednesday morning. The road connects the east and west sides of the island. Last week, officials said the lava could be on the road in a week. However, as expected, the lava has slowed significantly in recent days as it moves across the flatlands, leaving scientists unable to estimate a more precise timeline. Also Read: Iranian executions increased by more than 50% this year I wish we could have responded better, David Phillips, deputy scientist in charge of the USGS's Hawaiian Volcano Observatory, said Wednesday. And so, based on its current behavior and all the variables involved, it is extremely difficult to predict a time, a location, or even if it will intersect the highway. According to Phillips, the flow front also appeared less active on Wednesday than the previous day, possibly due to upward movement of lava that could be diverting lava towards the highway. According to Phillips, scientists were monitoring the overflow about 2.5 miles (4 kilometers) upstream from the lava front, but it was not posing a threat at the time. It was not clear whether it would remain active, but if it did, it would take some time to reach the road, he said. Also Read: After a fight in Turkey's parliament, a lawmaker was hospitalised Hawaii County Mayor Mitch Roth said preparations are underway to close the road. Island residents are facing major disruption if the road is made impassable by lava, forcing drivers to seek alternative coastal routes, which could add hours to commute time . Roth warned that if lava watchers continue to misbehave, including hiking through closed areas to get a better look, the road could be closed before the lava arrives. Officials opened a one-way mitigation road last week in response to thousands of motorists walking along the road to view the lava. According to officials, the route appears to have helped reduce collisions at night when there was an increase in lava viewing traffic. About 20 National Guard members were dispatched to assist with lava-related issues such as security and traffic. The county also hired some security guards to help prevent people from entering prohibited areas, according to Roth. Also Read: VP of Argentinais found guilty of a $1 billion fraud and sentenced 6 years in prison As we look at this lava flow, you know, the concern about people getting hurt by lava is not as much as people getting seriously injured from traffic accidents, Roth said Tuesday.

SP leads in Azam Khan's Rampur, BJP lagging

Counting of votes is underway for the by-election held in Rampur, a popular assembly constituency in Uttar Pradesh. Yes, and after lagging behind in the initial trends, Samajwadi Party's Asim Raza is leading. Let us tell you that Akash Saxena of the Bharatiya Janata Party is now lagging behind. According to the latest trends, Samajwadi Party leader Mohd Asim Raja is leading with a margin of 140 votes.With this, voting was held on December 5 in this seat. Let us tell you that 33 percent voting was recorded in Rampur Sadar Assembly. With this, the by-election was held after Azam Khan's assembly membership was canceled. Let us tell you that the Samajwadi Party had alleged large-scale rigging in this election. Samajwadi Party national general secretary Ram Gopal Yadav had written a letter to the Chief Election Commissioner demanding the cancellation of the by-election held in Rampur assembly constituency. Let us also tell you that this time in Rampur, the BJP was looking upset due to the very low voter turnout, while there is tremendous frustration and restlessness in the Samajwadi Party camp. However, Rampur is the seat where 55 to 60 percent are Muslim voters, and this time the vote percentage has been the lowest in history. With this, only about 33-34 percent of voting has been done in Rampur's seat, due to which BJP feels that the anger of Muslims has emerged against Azam Khan. Let us tell you that BJP's own vote has been received by them, especially Hindu votes and also the votes that have been angry with Azam Khan among Muslims. In such a situation, if there has been such a low turnout, then its direct impact is due to Azam Khan's voters, who did not come out to vote. The Samajwadi Party has alleged that Samajwadi party voters were not allowed to leave. They tried their best that SP voters could not reach the polling station and the administration has been successful in this. This claim is made by big leaders of the Samajwadi Party. On the other hand, BJP seems confident about this seat this time. Himachal poll results will decide fate of many senior leaders Gujrat, Himachal Polls : Congress keeps fingers crossed, BJP hopes to set new records Iranian executions increased by more than 50% this year

Iranian executions increased by more than 50% this year

London: Data released by Iran Human Rights shows that the Iranian government has hanged more than 500 people this year. The growth in performance, more than 50% from the 333 recorded in 2021, represents a sharp turnaround after years of decline. The numbers are likely to rise given the harsh government retaliation for the protests following the death of Mahsa Amini in police custody. Yesterday, five more death sentences were handed down to protesters for the killing of a security personnel, bringing the total number of death sentences as a result of the protests to 11.

BBMPs rapid road on Bengalurus OMR to open two weeks after project began

Infrastructure The rapid road work, an alternative to white-topping taken up by BBMP on a pilot basis, was initially estimated to be completed in about three days on the 500-metre stretch. TNM Staff Twitter/@ChutneyPudi The rapid road work that was taken up by Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) on a 500-metre stretch on Old Madras Road meet will finally be open for public use on December 8. The new method was explored as a quicker alternative to the white topping method, and it was initially expected to take about three to four days to lay the 500-metre road. However, the road will now be opened for traffic two weeks after work was announced on November 23, The Hindi reported. When the pilot project was announced, civic officials had said that while white-topping roads takes around 30 days, with the new method, around 150 metres of road could be relaid in a day. The rapid method involved pre-cast concrete slabs that are 20 feet long and five feet wide, prepared in a factory and embedded in the road. The project also involves fixing ramps and footpaths. BBMP Chief Commissioner Tushar Giri Nath had earlier said the new method costs about 20-25% more than white-topping. The pilot project was taken up at Binnamangala junction, where the Indiranagar 100 feet road and Old Madras Road meet, on November 23. It was expected to be completed with three to four days, but ended up taking much longer, and ended up causing inconvenience to motorists who had to take a detour while the road was closed for nearly two weeks. BBMP officials told The Hindu that while the rapid road work itself was completed in line with the earlier deadline, small pending works had delayed the opening of the road for traffic. #BBMP rapid road project does not seem to get completed!! It's been over 10 days and this 500m stretch is still in progress with quite some work left It clearly was never a 5 day project. But definitely faster than traditional whitetopping #Bangalore @BBMPCOMM #bbmpcares pic.twitter.com/5Jfi2m0DnY ChutneyPudi (@ChutneyPudi) December 5, 2022

Were forced to clean toilets at directors home, allege Kerala film institute workers

Caste Discrimination The workers have alleged that they were allowed to enter the house of director Shankar Mohan only after taking a bath and were asked to reveal their caste identity. Haritha John Photo : Special Arrangement Sanitation workers of a film institute named after KR Narayanan, the countrys first Dalit President, has raised several allegations against its director including using them to clean toilets in his residence and caste discrimination. The institute has denied the allegations and said they are yet to receive any official complaints in this regard. Nayana,* who works as a sweeper in KR Narayanan National Institute of Visual Science and Arts (KRNNIVSA), an autonomous institution under the Higher Education Department of Kerala government in Kottayam, says she along with three other colleagues were asked regularly to do household chores in the house of Shankar Mohan, the institutes director. They were asked to do cleaning work at the institute in the morning and after 10 am were asked to go to Shankar Mohans house by taking turns. According to the workers, they never had the courage to question this until students of the institute allegations of caste discrimination against him. They were hired as contract workers and were paid Rs 6,000 every month for working from 8am to 1pm. There are five employees in the sweeper post and four of us are asked to go to his house for cleaning. The remaining one person belonged to Dalit community, so she wouldnt be called. Taking turns, the two of us would be going a day. We will be allowed inside only after taking a bath and changing our clothes. Initially, the directors wife used to ask us what caste we belonged to. When we named our caste they kept on asking whether it belonged to lower status, Nayana alleged. The worst part is that we are not allowed to clean their toilets using a brush. We were asked to clean it using a small scrubber with our hands. That was really difficult. Moreover their home is located in a place with no regular buses. We were given Rs 100 every day as our bus fare. Since there is no bus we would get an auto rickshaw which would cost us around Rs 300. We work as domestic helpers in other houses to make up for this, she added. Another employee Divya,* told TNM that they were threatened of being fired from their jobs unless they do the household work at Shankar Mohans house. We were hired to do the cleaning works at the institute. But after we joined they asked us to go to the director's house. Initially they said on the days we do cleaning work at the house we would be spared from working at the institute. But later it changed and we had to work in both places. At his house we have to work about six hours and it's hectic. Still we dont get any payment for the domestic work. If we complain they issue threats of sacking, Divya alleged. They did not give a written complaint to the institute fearing loss of jobs and instead complained to the Chief Ministers and State Women's Commission. According to her, every time they were at Shankar Mohans house, they asked questions to make sure they were not Dalits. We felt really offended when they kept on asking us our caste and also made us clean ourselves before entering their house, she said. On December 5, a group of students led by the institutes Student Council began an indefinite strike protesting against Shankar Mohan by not attending classes. Sanitation workers of the Institute are forced to do domestic work at the Directors house and have faced caste discrimination like untouchability. Another person who works as a clerk at the institute also had faced severe caste discrimination. During the admission time of the 2022 batch, a student from Dalit community named Sharat was denied admission in the editing department despite four seats out of the total 10 being available, alleged Kiran KR, representative of Student Council. The students said as per a government order in January 2022, the director of the KRNNIVSA shouldnt be more than 65 years. But Shankar Mohan is 68-years-old. He continued in the post illegally. It has clearly mentioned in the order that in the public sector institutions, those who hold the position shouldnt be more than 65 years, Kiran alleged. A postgraduate in Screenplay writing & Film Direction from FTII, Pune, Shankar Mohan has worked in the Malayalam film industry as writer, actor, director and distributor for over a decade. He has also served as director at the Directorate of Film Festivals. The students also allege that many appointments were done in the institute without following proper rules. People were appointed in the posts of Dean, production controller and art director without issuing any notification regarding the recruitment. The new students of 2022 batch were forced to sign an indemnity bond containing several demeaning clauses that hinders personal freedom and student rights, said a press note from student council. KRNNIVSA has denied the allegations against the institutes director. We havent received any official complaint from any of the staff who spoke to the media. These all are a part of propaganda by certain people and they have misguided students too. Apart from the director there are many officers here with whom they could have raised the complaint but they havent done that. Since we are holding discussions with the ministry, we havent yet released an official reaction, said a spokesperson from the institute. TNM tried to contact Shankar Mohan, the director of the institute, for his response on the allegations but could not reach him. *Some names have been changed to protect the identity of employees.

VP of Argentinais found guilty of a $1 billion fraud and sentenced 6 years in prison

Buenos Aires: Argentina's Vice President Cristina Fernandez was convicted and sentenced on Tuesday to six years in prison and life in public office for a fraud scheme that embezzled $1 billion during her presidency through public works projects. Was banned for life. A three-judge panel found the Peronist leader guilty of fraud but dismissed a charge of running a criminal organization, which could have resulted in a 12-year prison sentence. It was the first time in Argentine history that a vice president had been convicted of a crime while in office. Fernandez condemned the decision, calling himself a victim of the judicial mafia. She later announced, however, that she would not run for president again the following year, a position she had previously held from 2007 to 2015. Also Read: Zelensky travels to Donbass near the difficult front in Ukraine The sentence is not final until all appeals have been resolved, which can take years. In the meantime, she would be immune to arrest. Fernandez's supporters have threatened to shut down the country with a nationwide strike. They shut down downtown Buenos Aires and marched on the federal courthouse beating drums and shouting, pressing against police barriers. Fernandez categorically denied all the allegations. Despite Argentina's dominance in this century, he was accused of improperly awarding public works contracts to a construction tycoon close to his family. The decision is bound to widen divisions in the South American country, where politics can be a blood sport and the 69-year-old populist leader is either loved or despised. President Alberto Fernandez, who is not related to his vice president, said on Twitter that she was innocent and that her conviction was the result of a trial that did not follow the minimum due process. Prosecutors claim that Fernandez defrauded the government by fraudulently directing 51 public works projects to Lazaro Baez, a construction magnate and an early ally of her and her husband Nestor Kirchner, who served as president from 2003 to 2007. Worked and died suddenly in 2010. Members of the presidential administrations of Baez and Fernandez from 2007 to 2015 were among a dozen others charged in the conspiracy. Baez and his Public Works Secretary, Jos Lpez, were also sentenced by the panel to six years in prison. Most others received lighter sentences. Prosecutors Diego Luciani and Sergio Mola claimed that the Baez company was set up to steal money through improperly bidding projects that cost more and were often never completed. According to him, the company disappeared after the Kirchners were in power for 12 years. Also Read: Concerns are raised by Indonesia's new criminal code In such cases, judges in Argentina customarily first deliver the verdict and sentence and explain their reasoning afterward. The panel's full decision is expected in February. After that, the decision can be appealed to the Supreme Court, which can take several years. Fernandez announced on her YouTube channel that she would not run for office again after her term as Vice President expires on December 10, 2023. My name will not appear on any ballot. I finish on December 10th and then go home, she explained. Politicians and analysts have noted that until her appeal is resolved, Fernandez would be free to run for any elected office from a seat in Congress to the presidency and would receive immunity from arrest in doing so. Cristina always surprises, Roberto Bachman, director of Argentina's Center for Public Opinion Studies, said of her announcement. However, she will keep fighting, he added. She puts herself in the middle of the fight and declares that she will not run away. He said it remained to be seen whether the Peronist movement would try to persuade Fernandez to reconsider his decision. Patricio Giusto, director of the political consulting firm Diagnostico Poltico, predicted that Fernandez would equal his tactics of harassment and his own with leftist politician Luiz Incio Lula da Silva, who recently overturned a prison sentence for corruption by a court. After was elected President of Brazil. , During the judicial process, the vice president described himself as a victim of the law, and described the judiciary as a pawn of the opposition media and conservative politician Mauricio Macri, who succeeded him as president from 2015 to 2019. Fernandez remains the sole leader of the left wing of the Peronist movement. According to Beckman polls, 62% of Argentinians want him removed and 38% support him no matter what.

Concerns are raised by Indonesia's new criminal code

JAKARTA: A long-awaited update to Indonesia's criminal code was approved by lawmakers on Tuesday. Critics claim the sweeping changes are a serious blow to the country's human rights and freedom of expression. Three years after President Joko Widodo scrapped a similar draft law amid widespread protests by thousands of youths who claimed the law threatened their civil liberties, new rules were unanimously approved by Indonesia's House of Representatives. went. The new penal code, which also regulates visitors from other countries, reinstates a prohibition against insulting the president, government agencies, or Pancasila, Indonesia's original national ideology. Also Read: Opposition figures in Iran and abroad have the Tehran regime terrified, according to a PMOI spokesperson Law and Human Rights Minister, Yasona Laoli, said before the legislature, We have done our best to accommodate the important issues and different opinions that were debated. To leave the colonial criminal code we inherited in the past, the time has come for us to take a historic decision regarding the Penal Code Amendment. Lawmakers in the world's largest Muslim-majority country struggled to adapt the penal code to native culture and norms, an amendment to the criminal code that dates back to the Dutch colonial era that had lain dormant for decades. The transition period is set for a maximum of three years, and the new criminal code will not take effect until the president signs it after ratifying it and creating written implementation rules. The Constitutional Court is another place to fight it. Also Read: India and Central Asian nations talk about their worries about terrorist acts in Afghanistan The new laws, according to critics, would limit free speech as they require police permits for all public demonstrations; Without one, protesters risk up to six months in jail. Tunggal Pavestri, a gender rights activist and executive director of the Hivos Foundation, told Arab News that the criminal code was still heavily influenced by colonialism and contained several articles that threatened civil liberties and constrained democratic spaces. Since widespread protests against the bill in 2019 when opponents claimed the legislative process lacked transparency and contained provisions that discriminated against minorities, Pavestri acknowledged that some progress had been made. We believe this was not their best effort, even though they said they were open and tried to incorporate input from the larger civil society, Pavestri continued. We've been shouting and contributing, but it's as if they didn't hear us. Major newspapers criticized the new laws in editorials, including the daily Quran Tempo, which claimed the code had authoritarian overtones and could one day lead to a disaster. The new legal provisions are repressive, according to Phil Robertson, deputy director of Human Rights Watch's Asia division, because they allow for invasion of privacy and selective enforcement that allow bribery of police and officials to harass and imprison political opponents. will enable. According to Robertson speaking to Arab News, Indonesia's human rights situation has suddenly deteriorated. Also Read: New York jury finds Trump Organization guilty of tax fraud There is no doubt that the adoption of this criminal code marks the beginning of a disastrous deterioration in Indonesia's human rights situation.

Opposition figures in Iran and abroad have the Tehran regime errified, according to a PMOI spokesperson

LONDON: A fire at the London office of an Iranian opposition group is proof that the Iranian regime is terrified of its opponents inside and outside the country, according to a spokesman for the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran. According to police, the fire broke out in the early hours of Monday next to the PMOI office in Cricklewood, north west London. According to the London Fire Brigade, the ground floor bin room was completely destroyed when firefighters arrived on the scene at 2:15 p.m. According to the service, no injuries were reported. Also Read: New York jury finds Trump Organization guilty of tax fraud However, he added that the incident was being investigated with the help of the Met's Counter-Terrorism Command due to the location of the incident and the organization located in the surrounding premises. Detective Superintendent Tony Bayliss of the Metropolitan Police ruled out the fire being a targeted attack or terror-related motives. The PMOI is a member of the National Resistance Council of Iran, which issued a statement accusing the Iranian government of being behind the attack. According to Hossein Abedini, deputy director of the Parliament in Exile of NCRI's UK office, state terrorism is involved in a clerical regime. The fundamentalist regime has resorted to more terrorism and threats against the Iranian opposition to compensate for its dire position and to bolster the morale of its demoralizing forces, he continued. The nationwide uprising of the Iranian people to overthrow the mullahs has continued for 80 days despite brutal repression. The Iranian government, from Ali Khamenei down, top to bottom, wants to intimidate and silence the members of the PMOI who are responsible for the ongoing protests that are rocking the country because they know that the PMOI is within the country. It is the most organized and effective opposition force. It runs highly successful campaigns in Iran and abroad. According to the speaker, of course they are scared because Khamenei has no answer to the unrest in Iran. They are using live ammunition, there have been 700 deaths, 30,000 arrests, and just in the last five days, 13 people, including a woman, have been hacked to death. The new generation of Iranian protesters involved in this year's unrest, he continued, are fearless and will not go back home until the regime is over, which the regime also fears. Also Read: UN chief: Humanity has turned into a weapon of mass extinction. The fire comes shortly after the head of Britain's domestic intelligence agency MI5 recently claimed that the security services had foiled more than a dozen Iranian plans to attack individuals based in the UK, which were Enemy of the State.

Warned about the dangers. According to NCRI's Abedini, the time has come to pressure governments and officials to close Iranian embassies. A definite response is needed at this time. The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps needs to be outlawed completely as a terrorist organization, and the clerical regime's embassies, which serve as hotbeds of terrorism and espionage, needs to be stopped immediately, he continued. , Jazeri told Arab News that the PMOI in Britain was pushing for the closure of Tehran's embassy in London, repeating Abedini's claim. In an effort to convince the authorities that the Iranian embassy is merely an espionage hub where terrorist recruiters and money-launderers operate, we are pressing for its closure. It should be closed, he said.

KSU member thrashed in Kozhikode following attack on SFI leader in Wayanad

Crime On December 2, SFI leader Aparna Gowri was attacked at a college in Meppadi. The attack had followed the violence that happened at the election to the college students union. TNM Staff Twitter/VP Sanu On Monday, December 5, 20-year-old Abhinav AK of Valiakode in Keralas Kozhikode district was beaten up over an alleged political skirmish last week at the Government Polytechnic College, Meppadi, Wayanad. Abhinav, a student of the polytechnic college and a member of Kerala Students Union (KSU), the student wing of the Congress party, was beaten with hockey sticks, iron rods, and wooden boards hammered with nails, according to the First Information Report (FIR) filed by the Perambra police. The attack on Abhinav is allegedly retaliation for the violence on campus after the elections. According to the FIR, Abhinav was out with friends near his home in Perambra when eight persons arrived on bikes and thrashed him. The incident is said to have occurred around 9.45 pm. The FIR stated that the assault could have been fatal had Abhinav not blocked the blows to his head with the wooden board with his hands. The reason behind the incident is that the complainant was believed to have been part of the violence in the Meppadi college, the FIR said. Amarjith and seven other identifiable persons were booked under sections 143 (unlawful assembly), 147 (rioting), 148 (Rioting, armed with deadly weapon), 341 (wrongful restraint), 323 (causing hurt), 324 (causing hurt by dangerous weapons), 308 (attempt to commit culpable homicide), and 149 (every member guilty of any offence committed by unlawful assembly) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). Perambra police told TNM that an investigation is underway. We have recorded Abhinavs statement. Other investigation procedures, including identification of the accused and the motive behind the attack, are ongoing, the police said. Speaking to the media, Abhinav said that he had no part in the violence that followed the college election and said that he had evidence to prove this. I received blows in the police lathi charge that followed the election violence. But I had no part in the attack on Aparna, he stated. Abhinav alleged that the attackers had themselves said that they belonged to the SFI. Two days back, they had come to my house to threaten me. I had told them that I was not part of Fridays attack, he said. After the election, all students in the college were threatened that they would not be able to leave Meppadi. Now I dont know if I will be able to go back to Meppadi, he added. Abhinav said that he will legally proceed against the attackers. Last Friday, Aparna Gowri, the Students Federation of India (SFI) Wayanad district joint secretary, was attacked at the same college. The attack had followed the violence that happened at the election to the college students union. The SFI had then alleged that a drug mafia was behind the attack. Aparna was admitted to a private medical college in the district following the attack. Four persons Kiran Raj, Atul, Shibili, and Abin were arrested for the assault. Meppadi station head officer Vibin AB, who was on duty at the campus during the election, also suffered injuries in the attacks on Friday. He sustained a broken finger, was kicked in the stomach, and slapped on the face, according to the FIR. Alan Antony (20) was booked for the attack on the officer under sections 323 (causing hurt), 333 (causing grievous hurt to deter public servant from duty), 341 (wrongful restraint), 353 (assault to deter public servant from duty), and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the IPC.

Paris: A claim that the notorious morality police is being disbanded by the protest-ridden regime has been rejected by Iranian activists and Westerners, who insist nothing has changed with regard to women's rights. On social media, there were also calls for a three-day strike in Iran, which will culminate on the annual Students' Day on Wednesday, nearly three months after the death in custody of Mahsa Amini, a Kurdish-Iranian woman. Amini, 22, was detained by morality police officers in Tehran for allegedly violating Iran's strict dress code, which calls for women to wear modest clothing and hijab headscarves. Also Read: Houthi officials have been charged with mistreating and excluding critically ill journalists. According to the US State Department, nothing we have seen indicates that the Iranian leadership is reversing its violent treatment of peaceful protesters or improving its treatment of women and girls. According to Germany's foreign ministry, disbanding the morality police will not change the Iranian protesters' desire to live freely and with self-determination. Amini's death on 16 September triggered protests led by women, which became the biggest challenge to the regime since the 1979 revolution. Hundreds of people have died in Iran, including some security personnel. Iran's prosecutor general, Mohammad Jafar Montazeri, was quoted as saying that morality police units formally known as Gasht-e Ershad (Guidance Patrol) were shut down over the weekend in an unexpected move.

Until they repeal all legal restrictions on women's dress and laws governing private lives of citizens, this is just a PR stunt, she said. Activists argued that abolishing the force would only change the way the government enforces Iran's headscarf law, a fundamental tenet of the country's clerical leadership. Additionally, disbanding the units would likely be too little, too late for the protesters, according to Borroumand, who now call for a complete change of government. She said that nothing prevents other law enforcement organizations from enforcing discriminatory laws.

Global economy in a bind, according to Paul Hickin of S&P Global Insights

New Delhi: We should consider the expected outcome because if the ban is successful then the prices will go up. If the goal is to reduce Russian crude supply and influence Russia, you will actually cause the price to rise and put pressure on Russia, which in turn will put real pressure on consumer countries to buy available crude. To be honest, a price range works in a way that makes it difficult to have your cake and eat it too. There are challenges, and as we can see in the past with sanctions against Venezuela and Iran, markets often find a way around some of these sanctions. This takes the decisions into very murky territory. The current state of the economy is finally balanced, which is why OPEC Plus has decided to adopt a wait-and-see strategy. Russian crude could be taken off the market at the rate of one million barrels per day in the coming months. There are many uncertainties, which is why OPEC Plus has decided to maintain a wait-and-see stance. In addition to excess crude, if Europe stops buying, that also comes into the picture.

Irans moment of truth: what will it take for the people to topple the regime?

Three months after the uprising began, demonstrators are still risking their lives. Will this generation succeed where previous attempts to unseat the Islamic hardliners have been crushed? For the past 12 weeks, revolutionary sentiment has been coursing through the cities and towns of the Persian plateau. The agitation was triggered by the death of Mahsa Amini , a young Kurdish woman, on 16 Septe mber after she was arrested by the morality police in Tehran. From the outset the movement had a feminist character, but it has also united citizens of different classes and ethnicities around a shared desire to see the back of the Islamic Republic. Iran has known numerous protest movements over the past decade and a half, and the nations supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has comfortably suppressed each one with a combination of severity and deft exploitation of divisions within the opposition. This time, however, the resilience and unity shown by the regimes opponents have consigned the old pattern of episodic unrest to the past. Iran has entered a period of rolling protest in which the Islamic Republic must defend itself against wave upon wave of public anger. In their retaliation against the protesters, the security forces have killed at least 448 people , including 60 children and 29 women, and made up to 17,000 arrests. Thirty-six protesters have been charged with capital crimes, according to Hadi Ghaemi of the New York-based Center for Human Rights in Iran, including several people accused of killing members of the security forces. Still, the authorities insist that they have erred on the side of restraint. On 9 November the commander of Irans ground forces warned that Khamenei only needed to say the word and the opposition flies would without question have no place left in the country.

Palestinian health officials report the death of a man during an Israeli raid in the West Bank.

JERUSALEM: Palestinian health officials said a Palestinian man was killed by Israeli fire during an Israeli army raid in the occupied West Bank on Monday. It was the most recent death in a recent spike in violence in the region. Since the spring, Israeli forces have been conducting raids on the West Bank on a daily basis. Troops reportedly entered the Deheshe refugee camp near Bethlehem in the early hours of Monday, leading to clashes with several local residents. This information was given by the Palestinian news agency Wafa. The jawans then started firing on the crowd, allegedly lobbing tear gas shells.

The revolution and the religion in the film Kantara

The film Kantara directed by Rishab Shetty is a blockbuster at the box-office in almost all languages it has been dubbed into. The movies plot has two significant elements pitched at two different levels. One part of the story consists of the struggles of a community of forest dwellers in protecting their land from the dora, the landlord, and from the state that is operating through the forest department. The other part is about the spirituality and religion of outcastes, in this case the worship of the gods Panjurli and Guliga, powerful spirits that speak through the dance art form of Bhootha Kola. This religious element plays a vital role in the story in protecting the lands of the forest dwellers from the dora. The opening scene of the film is set in 1847, a 100 years before the formation of India. This period refers to the power of the autocrats over both the forest and agricultural lands. However the good king who was in search of peace ends up meeting the god Panjurli worshipped in the form of a stone in the middle of the forest. When he attempts to take the god along with him to the palace, Panjurlis spirit speaks through the member of an Adivasi community and demands that the king grant the Adivasis right over the land around their habitat. Panjurli also warns the king that he is always associated with the more ferocious spirit of the god Guliga, who doesnt tolerate any injustice. In the 1970s, the kings inheritor who emerges as a landlord wants to take back the land his ancestors allegedly donated to the Adivasi community. However, Panjurli again speaks through the Bhootha Kola artist and warns the landlord to drop his vicious intentions. The Bhootha Kola performer disappears mystically into the darkness of the forest to prove his divinity. The inheritor dies on the steps leading to the courtroom before he can fight his case in the court of law as foretold by Panjurli. The only son of the Bhootha Kola artist, Shiva, is the protagonist, whose life story is set in the contemporary period. Shiva is a carefree youth who is enticed by the dora with liquor. Though the duty of performing Bhootha Kola is bestowed upon his family, Shiva is scared to inherit this profession for the fear that he might mystically disappear like his father. Shivas first cousin Guruva takes up the duty of performing Kola in lieu of Shiva. While the youth of the community rely extensively on the dora for everything, including protecting themselves from forest officer Muralidhar, Shivas mother is sceptical about the ways of the dora. Leela, Shivas childhood friend and love interest, finds a job as a forest department guard with the help of the dora. However, the dora manipulates both the government and the Adivasi community to transfer much of the Adivasi lands in his name. While the strength of the Adivasis is inadequate to fight the feudal power of the dora or the modern state, it is Guliga, the powerful spirit of the totemistic religion, that becomes the nemesis. The significant women characters are Shivas mother, who is always doubtful about the doras intentions behind providing liquor to the youth, particularly to her son. She keeps warning Shiva not to kill the wild boar as it is worshipped as Panjurli. Another important character is Leela, an educated Adivasi woman keen on making a career as a forest guard. However, she is criticised by the people of her community for working with the forest department that sends them notices against illegal occupation of government lands. Leela is presented as a powerful female character. She begins to ride Shivas bike after his arrest, metaphorically indicating how she takes over the familial responsibilities. Shivas mother criticises him bitterly when he manhandles Leela. Who does the forest belong to? The film depicts the philosophy of the political struggle for land rights in India. When the plot of the movie enters contemporary times in a linear narrative, Shiva is introduced riding oxen in Kambala, a traditional race among south Indian agrarian communities. The dora Devendra is introduced witnessing the game with a great deal of excitement. Mahadeva, an old Adivasi man also watching the race, says in a philosophical tone, While the buffaloes are running in the race without caring for their own life, ironically the owner gets the medal, emphasising on how the armchair dora enjoys the profits while the lowered castes toil in the fields like slaves. Since the plot covers a wide time span from pre-independent India to today, there is a great deal of enigma related to the land ownership. Philosophically, land belongs to no one but to nature or god, depending on whatever philosophical structure one refers to. This is reflected in Shivas fathers words: The problem with people is that they want to take back even something they donated. If they understand where it actually came from and who it should actually belong to, there will be no problem in this world. Similarly, in an encounter with forest officer Muralidhar, Shiva says, This forest belongs to us before the birth of your government. In fact, your government should take permission from us to enter the forest. The philosophical question here is whether the forest belongs to the state or to the forest dwellers who are traditionally associated with it. To talk cogently, land belongs to no one but to nature. In the film, and in reality, the owner of the land is the monarch in pre-independent India while the ownership is later transferred to the democratic state. The question here is, who donated or provided ownership over the land to the king or to the modern state? Both the institutions of power curb the rights and access of the Adivasis, who are historically dependents/protectors of the forest from times before the autocrat or the modern state was formed. So, the antagonist in this context is both the dora and the modern state that is represented through the character of Muralidhar. As the land ownership is sanctioned to the Adivasis by nature or god, it is now the duty of the god to protect their rights. This philosophy is conveyed through the unflinching belief of the Adivasis in Panjurli. The same divine power protects the Adivasis both from the dora and the state. The spirituality and religion of outcastes The divinity is presented through the traditional music and art form of Bhootha Kola in the film. The fascinating part of the religiosity is that the god Panjurli is not a Vedic Hindu god, with Muralidhar asserting my belief is different from yours. Muralidhar does not even hesitate to disrupt the Bhootha Kola as it is believed to be the religion of lowered castes/outcastes, one that has no relation to the Vedic religion that the dominant castes practise. Both for the dora and for Muralidhar, Panjurli is a demigod worshipped by the forest dwellers. Though the dora sponsors Bhootha Kola performances in order to seek the approval of the Adivasis, he doesnt believe in Panjurli or Guliga, the gods of the outcastes. Even in the narration of the story of the good king who was in search of peace, Panjurli is referred to as a mere pestle used for grinding spices. Dora Devendra practises the Brahminic religion and upholds untouchability. He washes his hands after touching Shiva and gets his house ritualistically purified by a group of Brahmins after Shiva enters his house. Thus, the film makes a clear demarcation between Brahminical Hinduism and the religiosity of the outcastes. The term Hindu is a colonial invention as it created a constitutive other to the religions of the book, combining even unique animistic, totemistic religions with Vedic Brahminism. These outcaste religions like the worship of female goddesses such as Yellamma in Telangana and Maharashtra, or worship of Naga/snake by lowered caste society in Bengal or Andhra Pradesh represent the historical conflict between Vedic Brahminism and the religions formed as revolts against the hegemony of Vedic Brahminism. For instance, the Naga tribe that worshipped the snake goddess Manasa is allegedly considered an adversary to Shaivism (Coomaraswamy and Nivedita, 1914). In Mahabharata, the sarpayaga (Vedic/Brahminic ritual) is conducted by Janamejaya in order to wipe out the population of Nagas (Menon, 2011). In sarpayaga/sarpa satra, all Nagas are burnt alive in the ritualistic fire. Thus, Naga worship is defined as a counter to the Vedic religion of Brahmins. The conflict between revolutionary religions and Vedic religion is evident throughout history (Coomaraswamy and Nivedita, 1914). Appropriation of local traditions Ambedkar argues in Revolution and Counter-Revolution in Ancient India that various alternative forms of religiosity, mainly Buddhism, was a revolution that drew lowered castes and outcastes into its fold (Ambedkar, 1987). However, the Vedic religion fought relentlessly to appropriate certain ideals such as non-violence and vegetarianism from these counter/revolting religions in order to re-entice people into their fold. Thus, powerful local traditions are appropriated by the Brahminic religion through the construction of oral narratives that bring connections between the Hindu scriptures and the gods/goddesses of the lowered castes or outcastes. The oral narratives that contrive connections between Renuka who was beheaded by her son Parashurama and Yellamma, worshipped by outcastes, helped to create a common Hindu religiosity and retain the Brahmin dominance over the religions. Brahminical Hinduism actively and continuously engages in creating history to appropriate the powerful spiritualities of the outcastes. The film needs to be understood in the light of this demarcation between Brahminical Hinduism and counter religions. The conflict between the hegemonic Vedic religion and the other religions is not a new phenomenon. Local leaders or goddesses of the outcastes/Adivasis such as Chanchita are appropriated as the incarnation of the Brahminic goddess Lakshmi, i.e., Chenchu Lakshmi. All the female power is equated to the power of Parvathi, the goddess of Vedic religion (Coomaraswamy and Nivedita, 1914). This appropriation of local traditions or counter-religious trends into the fold of Vedic religiosity is as ancient as the Puranas and epics, but it is relentlessly perpetuated in contemporary times as well. This perpetuation of re-appropriation of counter religions is known as counter-revolution of the Vedic religiosity, according to Ambedkar (Ambedkar, 1987). Even rival religious trends like Shaivism and Vaishnavism subsumed each other and continued to coexist harmoniously in the name of Hinduism. This appropriation of opponent religions reinstates the hegemony of the Brahmins and dominant castes both in religion and society. There is also a danger of viewing Panjurli as the incarnation of Vishnu (Varaha avatar). In fact, every avatar shows how the Brahminic religion soaked up the counter/coexisting religions. Ironically, even revolutionary religious leaders like Buddha are contrived as one of the avatars of Vishnu. Even today, both the makers and viewers of Kantara may categorise Panjurli as an incarnation of Vishnu. It is also made possible by the descriptions of Varaha avatar and Narasimha avatar in the Bhagavatam. Appropriation of local traditions by the Vedic religion is as old as the Vedas itself. It dates back to the times of the Vedas, Brahmanas, Upanishads and epics. One of the examples is how the scriptures that belong to the later Vedic period, i.e., 1000 to 600 BCE, itself appropriated vegetarianism and the principles of non-violence propagated by Buddha and Mahaveera. Similarly, the conflict between Shaivism and Vaishnavism is portrayed through the stories of Hiranyaksha and Hiranyakashipu being slain by Vishnu in his forms of Varaha (pig) and Narasimha (half-human and half-lion) respectively. The two are killed for merely worshipping Shiva. But today, dominant caste Hindus, lowered castes, and outcastes worship these two figures of Shiva and Vishnu as the two faces of Hinduism. Thus, the two historical adversaries coexist harmoniously. Hiranyaksha and Hiranyakashipu are mentioned in texts like the Bhagavatham, the Puranas, and even some Buddhist texts. These stories substantiate the violence perpetrated on aboriginal groups by the outsider. Moreover, no Veda was initially written and preserved in the form of a text. These are oral renderings, disseminated only among Brahmin men. Likewise, even the written scriptures were not written at once. There were additions done to epics in different periods. Thus, we have hundreds of Ramayanas Kamba Ramayana, Valmiki Ramayana, Molla Ramayana, Thai Ramayana, Marathi Ramayana to name a few. The story of the Naga king inviting Buddha and accepting Buddhist principles are mentioned in Buddhist texts (Lowell W Bloss, 1973). Nagas being burnt alive is mentioned in the Mahabharata. Narasimha is worshipped among outcastes. He married Chenchita, a woman belonging to the Chenchu community. In later renderings, Chenchita became Chenchu Lakshmi. In contemporary society, pigs and snakes are not worshipped by Brahmins in the way they worship the cow. Brahmins even do pujas for sarpadosha to escape the fear of being bitten by a snake. However, Brahmin priests play a pivotal role even in the traditions that have no scriptural base. For example, Bonalu (worship of Yellamma) and Bathukamma (worship of nature) are not mentioned in any scripture. In Gogu Shyamalas story But Why Shouldnt the Baindla Woman Ask For Her Land? (Gogu, 2012), a Brahmin priest says that he has never read about the goddess Ooradamma worshipped by Telanganas Sabbanda communities (communities that indulge in productive labour). He has knowledge about Lakshmi, Parvathi, and Saraswati but not Ooradamma. However, the Brahmin priest appears amid these traditions as well. This is made possible by the flexibility that Brahmins infused into the scriptures by holding the power to interpret and reinterpret their scriptures. One such interpretation is that all female power originates from Parvathi, Shivas wife. Moreover, the outcaste and lowered castes often seek validation from Brahminism to be treated as Hindus. Even lowered castes uphold the stories of Jamadagni and Parashurama beheading their goddess Yellamma. In fact, this story is another example of how the outsiders perpetrated violence on the aboriginal autonomous women leaders from the matriarchal cultures. The god Panjurli can easily be appropriated with the Varaha avatar of the Brahminic god Vishnu. In fact, the narration of the Varaha avatar is nothing but the appropriation of the gods from the totemistic religions like worship of Panjurli, the spirit of the wild boar that is believed to protect the land of the forest-dwellers. It is similar to the Brahminic Hindu appropriation of Venkateswara (erstwhile god of the tribal groups in Andhra) as another incarnation of Vishnu even though there is no scriptural base to Venkateswara. This appropriation of traditions and manipulation of history takes place due to the sole authority of Brahmins to interpret the scriptures. Kantara takes up the challenge of whether it is possible to derive the rhetoric of revolution from religiosity. While the film succeeded in portraying the historically radical religions that revolted against the hegemonic Brahminism, the danger of constructing all religiosity (animistic or totemistic) as merely Hindu is ever present in Indian society. However, the outcastes rely on the revolutionary religions to construct the rhetoric of resistance to caste oppression in Kantara . They invoke revolutionary gods Panjurli and Guliga to fight the feudal power of the landlord and the bureaucracy of the enigmatic modern state. Unlike Rama who sanctions the dominance of Brahmins, Krishna, who upholds the hegemony of Kshatriyas, (Chakravarti, 2003, Rege, 2013) Panjurli and Guliga fights against the feudal landlord to protect the rights of the forest-dwellers.

SC allows TN to to allocate 50% of super-specialty seats to NEET in-service candidates

NEET The state government had vehemently defended the government order (GO) of 2020 on the Super Specialty seats. PTI PTI The Supreme Court on December 2, Friday permitted the Tamil Nadu government to allocate 50 per cent of super-speciality seats in government medical colleges to NEET-qualified in-service candidates for the current academic year. A bench of Justices B R Gavai and Vikram Nath directed the state government to fill the seats as per the Tamil Nadu government order dated November 7, 2020, within a period of 15 days. The state government had vehemently defended the government order (GO) of 2020 on the Super Specialty seats.The state of Tamil Nadu has approached this court for clarification of an order dated March 16, 2022, that the said order is also applicable to all subsequent academic years till disposal of petitions. We have heard the counsels. The ASG submitted that last year a number of seats reserved for in-service candidates could not be filled up. She submitted that super speciality courses are valuable national assets and they cannot be permitted to go to waste... We appreciate the anxiety of the ASG that the issue requires to be decided finally. However, for the present academic year, we find the state needs to be permitted to fill the seats based on GO, the bench said. The top court also directed that on the 16th day, the state of Tamil Nadu will inform the Union of India with regard to all the seats which remain unfulfilled from in-service candidates. In-service PG aspirants must give a bond that they will serve the state after completion of their course in a government medical college till their superannuation.

Uthara, Vismaya and a Latvian woman: The lawyer who secured justice for all

Crime For those who have been following some of the most talked about crime cases in Kerala in the recent past, Mohan Raj would be a familiar name. Korah Abraham This is not my personal success. It is the success of the Indian judiciary, senior lawyer G Mohanraj told TNM, standing outside the Thiruvananthapuram district court complex, on Friday, December 2, just moments after the court found two people guilty of rape and murder of a Latvian woman in March 2018. Mohanraj was the Special Public Prosecutor in the case. This was not the only high-profile case where Mohanraj secured a conviction. He was also the public prosecutor in the Uthara murder case as well as in the dowry death case of 22-year-old Vismaya, both of which led to convictions of the accused. While Uthara had been killed by her husband using a venomous snake, Vismaya was the victim of dowry and domestic violence and died by suicide. The murder of the 33-year-old Latvian woman drew media attention from outside Kerala as well, given that the victim was a foreign tourist. When asked whether all the media attention and public scrutiny, along with the prolonging of the case added to the already existing pressure, Mohanraj replied, There was no pressure. Being an Indian, it was my duty to fight for justice and ensure that the woman and her family get that justice. That was what I was focussing on. The trial which happened at the Additional Sessions Court of Thiruvananthapuram was challenging as two of the key witnesses turned hostile. The prosecution had to rely heavily on scientific evidence to make their case, ensuring that the two accused men were found guilty of all charges, including rape, murder, abduction and destruction of evidence. It was in May 2020 that 25-year-old Uthara was found dead at her parents home in Keralas Kollam district. A year later, in October 2021, the Additional Sessions Court in Kollam sentenced her husband Sooraj S Kumar to life imprisonment for murdering Uthara, using a snake as the murder weapon. In his media interviews following the verdict of the case, Mohanraj had said that analysing judgments in similar snake bite cases in the past from various parts of the country was crucial to the case. His team chose two such cases to focus on one in Nagpur and another in Indore both where the prosecution teams were unable to prove their case. After studying these cases, it became clear that proving the snake bite was unnatural was crucial as the husband had denied the crime. In Utharas case, the police and the team of lawyers focused on three things: prove that the cobra did not enter the house naturally, that it was provoked to bite the woman and a deep study of the fang width to show that it was a forced bite. While it was scientific evidence that Mohanraj and team focused on in Utharas case to make sure her husband Sooraj was convicted, in Vismayas case they wove together a coherent narrative using witnesses and digital evidence. Vismaya Nair, a student of Ayurveda medicine, was found dead at her marital home in Kollam in June 2021. She was 22 years old and hailed from Nilamel, also in Kollam district. Her death came days after she had sent messages to her cousin telling him that her husband Kiran Kumar had brutally beaten her many times over a car that was given as part of her dowry. A year later, on May 23, her husband Kiran Kumar was convicted for her death after the court found him guilty under Sections 306 (abetment of suicide), 498A (cruelty by husband or a relative), and 506 (punishment for criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code. Mohanraj, who was the Special Public Prosecutor in the case, faced the challenge of establishing that what was considered as an unnatural death or a case of death by suicide was a result of dowry related harassment. The police retrieved thousands of calls and messages from Vismaya and her husband Kiran Kumars phones. These records showed that the harassment started exactly a day after the wedding as Kiran was unhappy with the car given as dowry. As harassment is mostly a crime committed in secrecy, in this case within the walls of their house, the prosecution meticulously put together these calls and lined up a string of witnesses who had known about the harassment at various stages. In an interview to a YouTube channel, Mohanraj spoke about how he felt emotional in court recalling the physical violence inflicted on Vismaya. I know I am doing my job, but talking about her suffering in court affected me. Vismaya case: Audio clips helped secure husband Kiran Kumars conviction

Dr Swetha of Cosmoderm Centre, Bangalore recommends HydraFacial, revolutionary facial for that instantly glowing and rejuvenated look!

Cosmetologists recommend hydra-facial to treat acne, acne scars, or blackheads. The HydraFacial includes a deep exfoliation procedure that eliminates pore-clogging skin cells.

Leading Hair Transplant Surgeon, Dr Harikiran Chekuri elaborates on the Need for Hair Transplants for Baldness

Individuals experiencing hair loss or increasing baldness might feel less confident and unhappy with their appearance. Baldness, thinning hair or hair loss significantly impacts the persons identity and morale. Hair transplants and various treatments are available to resolve hair loss issues and regain hair growth. However, it is possible to ascertain the most suitable one after the correct diagnosis of the reason for baldness. Dr Harikiran Chekuri of Redefine Hair Transplant Clinic, Mumbai, explains the hair transplant procedure is the most common type of hair replacement surgery. Hair grafts from scalp areas which have dense hair are extracted and transplanted onto a bald or thinning scalp area. In certain cases, a hair transplantation surgery is adequate to regain hair on the head with satisfactory results. Today, hair transplant procedures are more advanced as surgeons can harvest hairs using the FUE technique and implant them in groups of one to three to create a natural-looking hairline. From an aesthetic perspective, a hair transplant performed by a skilled surgeon will appear and feel just like a natural hairline if the patient has enough donor hair and adequate hair growth in the areas of the scalp that require it. Dr Harikiran Chekuri explains the FUE and BIO FUE hair transplant techniques as offered in the Redefine Hair Transplant Clinic in Mumbai. In FUE procedure, the surgeon extracts the hair follicles with the help of a micro punch tool directly from the scalp. Then, the surgeon makes multiple tiny incisions using a sharp tool or need in the recipient area and implants the extracted grafts without any time gap. This is a daytime procedure, and the patient can go home the same day. On the other hand, the Bio-FUE is an improved FUE technique. It involves strengthening the hair grafts with platelet-rich plasma and implanting them in the recipient area. The plasma is derived from the patients blood and is known to have growth factors that help the wound to heal rapidly and encourage the growth of the newly implanted hair grafts. It is possible to get long-lasting, natural-looking effects using Bio-FUE. Dr Hari Kiran Chekuri has performed several Bio FUE hair transplant procedures with satisfactory results. He explains hair loss in greater detail. Hair loss is a common term for alopecia, which occurs due to certain natural reasons or medical conditions or medications. The various types of alopecia or hair loss; for some, it is a small patch of hair or total loss of hair from the scalp and the body. Androgenic or androgenetic alopecia or Male-Pattern baldness is noted in nearly 50% of men. It is a hereditary form of baldness associated with excessive amounts of specific genes. It becomes visible in men in their late 20s or 30s with receding hairlines followed by baldness by the time they reach 50 years. Female-Pattern baldness affects post-menopausal women mainly due to hormonal changes, though its exact reason has yet to be ascertained. Alopecia areata refers to baldness in patches. These baldness patches resolve and recur frequently and are noted in men, women and children of any age. They can occur on the scalp as well as anywhere in the body. Alopecia areata occurs in teenagers and young adults primarily. An immune system disorder and people with autoimmune conditions are the reason for alopecia areata and are hereditary. Most hair loss medications are effective till the time they are taken. On the other hand, hair transplant procedures have proved a relatively better and reliable solution with long-lasting results, provided the hair transplant surgeons instructions are followed properly. Hence, most cosmetic and plastic surgeons rely on hair transplants to resolve baldness issues in patients. Dr Harikiran Chekuri is a leading Hair Transplant and Plastic surgeon in Mumbai and Hyderabad. He has nearly 19 years of experience performing hair transplant surgeries and hair loss treatments. Also, he is an expert in performing face and body surgeries which are very much in demand.

Iran rejects a UN inquiry into the demonstrations

Britain: Iran's foreign ministry announced on Monday that the country would reject a newly appointed independent UN inquiry into how anti-government protests were suppressed there. According to ministry spokesman Nasser Kanani, Iran will not cooperate with the political committee established by the UN Rights Council. On Thursday, the UN Rights Council decided to launch an investigation into Iran's deadly crackdown on the protests. The UN rights commissioner, Volker Turk, had earlier urged Iran to end the use of excessive force to quell protests following the September 16 death in custody of 22-year-old Kurdish woman Mahsa Amini. Also Read: Days that are considered auspicious and inauspicious in Hinduism By 26 November, activist news organization HRANA reported that 450 protesters, including 63 minors, had died in more than two months of nationwide unrest. It added that 18,173 protesters were detained and 60 members of the security forces were killed. Protesters from all walks of life have burned images of Khamenei in an attempt to cast doubt on the Islamic republic's legitimacy and have sought the overthrow of Iran's Shia Muslim theocracy. Amini was detained by the morality police for wearing clothes inappropriate by Iran's Islamic dress code. However, the protests have also called for the overthrow of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. Despite crushing earlier waves of notable protests, the unrest has presented one of the boldest challenges to Iran's clerical ruling elite since it came to power in the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
