Brutal Control

October 30, 2010

China’s “one family – one child” policy results in 13 million abortions every year. Many of these abortions take place under the pressure from authorities. Demographic restrictions are still in effect in China despite the country’s impressive economic growth: family couples are still legally prohibited from having more than one child.

Violating the demographic law stipulates serious penalties in China: a fine of up to $40,000, dismissal from work and confiscation of property. Women can even be sterilized, if they become pregnant repeatedly.

Thirteen million abortions a year is a terrifying number, although many independent medical experts say that the real state of affairs in China is even more shocking. According to the World Health Organization, every 1,000 Chinese females aged from 15 to 44 make 24 abortions on average. In 2003, there were 42 million abortions conducted in the world, and 9 million of them were performed in China.

Its very heart breaking to see so many lives are simply extinguished before they see the light.

At what cost progress?

There are ways to attain goals without committing murders.

Dogs Life

October 19, 2010

A teacher at an engineering college in Karjat, near Mumbai, India, who sold answer sheets to students and let them write exams at his house, was busted by his wife when she approached the local police with documents and shocking details of his “answer-sheets-for-cash” scam.

Husband and wife knew each other from their collage days and grew up together. They married on 14th of July this year. But she was shocked to see her husband in this crooked, fraudulent activity and opposed it vehemently. But the husband had no intention of stopping it.

She refused to accept the money thus earned and was physically handled by her husband for this. That’s when she decided to go to the police and leave him.

Husband and wife had opposing view points, and society got rid of a very dangerous, corrupt activity.

“My father is also a government servant and never took a single penny in bribe. My conscience just did not allow me to be a mute spectator” this is all she wanted to say.

Permission

October 19, 2010

A court in Saudi Arabia refused permission to a 43 year old lady doctor to marry her colleague, because her parents opposition.

The woman had sought the court’s help to marry a doctor in the hospital where she worked, saying her father and brothers were against the union because of tribal incompatibility. Her lawyer said the judge had blinded himself to the woman’s plight and wishes while he cited passages from the Qur’an to back his own judgment.

But the judge accused her of being disobedient to her father and ordered her to return home. She has been living in a women’s shelter for two years, and says she faces abuse from her father at his home.

“I have been prevented from marrying for 10 years now, and my case has been in the Medina court for five years, I will turn 43 in a few months. I don’t have many years left to build a family and have children.”

But that is life in a tribal society.

Simple Truth

June 13, 2010

The foremost thing in blogging is catching readers attention. Most bloggers do this by captivating pictures and a dashing caption. But once reader starts reading, its the matter contained keeps him going. A recent study has revealed that the blog readers on an average read only about 360 words in a blog. The rest of it they just skip. Therefore, it is imperative to bloggers to keep their message real short and to the point.  In fact, this short messaging can be used quite effectively to divulge anything one want to.

The second important point made in this study is that the readers comprehend only about 60% of what is written, however simple it may be.

So I am warned.

Slumdog Millionaire

March 15, 2009

Slumdog Millionaire reached the pinnacle of movie kingdom, depicting the success of the lowliest.   Now I read a story that there are more than 12 million children living on the streets of Indian cities.

No need to stress that homeless children are easy prey for sexual abuse.  One in every four street girl is sexually abused before the age of 14.
