Punishment: According to the Sharia law, which punishes murder with death - an eye-for-an-eye - the accused, Hamid, has been ordered to lose an eye and an ear after he attacked another man, blinding him and burning his ear

A court in Iran has ordered a man to lose an eye and an ear as punishment for blinding another man and burning his ear in an acid attack.
The accused, identified only as Hamid, was also ordered to pay blood money after he was found guilty of the attack five years ago.
Hamid claimed he had mistaken his victim – identified only as Davoud – for a former classmate who had bullied him at college, reports Iran's semi-official Fars news agency.
'In college, some of the classmates bullied me so much that we had to move from the city I was living in to another one. This was carved in my mind and I couldn't get over it,' he said, according to Fars.
'I bought acid and went back to my former college and waited for some of the classmates to come out. When he [Davoud] came out, I followed him and threw acid on him and I also injured my own legs by doing so.'
Victim Davoud was 22 at the time of the attack and denied ever meeting Hamid - and he claimed that the two-year age gap between them meant they could never have been in the same class.
In Iran citizens are supposed to obey Sharia law, a penal code that hands out what are perceived to be harsh punishments by Western culture for crimes, transgressions, curtailing civil rights, and violating human rights.
The eye-for-an-eye, or tooth-for-a-tooth, punishment is legal under the Sharia code of gisas, which allow retribution for violent crimes – hence why there are a number of public hangings for alleged murderers.
In November 2008 Majid Movahedi was sentenced to lose both eyes in a similar case, having been found guilty of throwing acid at Ameneh Bahramia, a woman who refused to marry him.
It is unclear whether the sentence has yet been carried out.
In October, however, Iranian authorities chopped off the hand of a convicted thief at a prison in the central city of Yazd.
Outcry: Iran has been criticised for sentencing Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, 43, to be stoned to death for adultery

In recent weeks Iran has been criticised for sentencing Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, 43, to be stoned to death for adultery.
She has so far escaped the sentence because of the international outcry surrounding her case.
Iran has executed at least 200 people in the past 10 months, according the human rights website rahana.org

Supreme Court woman judge lists daughters as ‘liabilities’ in India

SC woman judge lists daughters as ‘liabilities’
TNN, Dec 29, 2010
http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/india/SC-woman-judge-lists-daughters-as-liabilities/articleshow/7181234.cms
NEW DELHI: It is a line that even Bollywood has banished for a while now. But while declaring her assets and liabilities, sitting Supreme Court judge Gyan Sudha Mishra, the only woman judge in the SC at present, has listed the marriage of her two daughters in the "liabilities" column, apparently without considering anything to be much amiss.
The SC's official website in its assets of sitting judges column gives Justice Mishra's declaration where she lists "two daughters to be married" against the liabilities column. While this might be a sentiment still shared by a section of the middle class, it could be regarded as being very politically incorrect, especially on the part of the country's seniormost woman judge.

Other entries in the liabilities column are "guarantor for education loan of my daughter" and residential house to be built post-retirement. The view that daughters are a "liability" (often because of the high cost of their marriage), or a burden of some sort, is a notion that the government is fighting to eradicate through many campaigns.

The declaration is likely to attract comment as it is does not seem in sync with the SC's otherwise progressive image on social issues in general and women's rights in particular. It could be seen to be betraying a thinking on which the SC is often called to deliberate on while handling sensitive gender parity cases.

The assets Justice Mishra, who formerly headed the Chhattisgarh high court, has declared are not out of the ordinary. "Stridhan" of one gold set and "few gold rings and a pair of bangles" are listed under jewellery. There are no shares or mutual funds and fixed deposits total just Rs 5 lakh.

Justice Mishra has a PPF of Rs 3 lakh and has listed her VIth pay commission arrears as well. Her landed property includes an original allottee of one flat in a society for judges and lawyers in Mayur Vihar in Delhi and a residential plot in Faridabad. The flat and plot cost Rs 5 and Rs 6 lakh at purchase though their value would be much higher now.

She has shown nothing to declare under the vehicle column while her spouse owns just one Maruti 800. He also has an office space in Rani Bagh purchased in 1999 for Rs 4 lakh and one unregistered residential plot in Fraidabad. He is also claimant to a share in joint family property in Dhanbad.

Smith's Bible Dictionary - Mother -

The superiority of the Hebrew over all contemporaneous systems of legislation and of morals is strongly shown in the higher estimation of the mother in the Jewish family, as contrasted with modern Oriental as well as ancient Oriental and classical usage. The king's mother, as appears in the case of Bath-sheba, was treated with special honor.

Cops ‘man’handle Single woman teacher (separated from husband) at police station for suspected relationship/abduction in Bangalore

Cops ‘man’handle woman teacher at police station

Many a rule flouted: The woman suspect was called to R T Nagar police station after dusk; not a single woman constable was around when the teacher was interrogated

December 27, 2010

A 32-year-old woman school teacher was brought to a police station at 8.30 pm last Tuesday, and subjected to third-degree interrogation


 She was tortured so much by a group of all-male cops that she developed convulsions and fell unconscious. Later, medical examination revealed that she had sustained internal injuries.
The RT Nagar police station, where it all allegedly happened

http://www.bangaloremirror.com/article/1/2010122720101227001427881253f38a1/Cops-%E2%80%98man%E2%80%99handle-woman-teacher-at-police-station.html
Rules clearly state that no woman suspect should be kept in the police station after dusk, but cops at R T Nagar police station chose to flout them. The teacher, identified as Celina, a resident of R T Nagar, was being treated for injuries she suffered on her back, hip, arm and neck during interrogation.
How it started

Celina was picked up by the cops in connection with a case of a doctor having gone missing. A teacher of a private school, she was separated from her husband and lived on her own. For the past 10 years, she had been a family friend of Dr Prakash, who has his own clinic at R T Nagar. She was on friendly terms  with the doctor’s wife, Rajeshwari, and their daughter.

The twist in the tale came on December 21. Rajeshwari lodged a complaint with the police, accusing Celina of having kidnapped her husband. She alleged that Prakash had been missing since December 19, and Celina knew about his whereabouts. Tracking the mobile phone call details of Prakash, the cops found that the doctor had spoken last to Celina just before disappearing.  

Celina told Bangalore Mirror, “On December 21, a person named Chandru called me, asking me to report to the R T Nagar police station. As it was late in the evening, I told him that I would come the next day. But he insisted it was a minor enquiry which would hardly take 10 minutes. So, around 8.30 pm I went to the police station with a few friends of mine. Asking my friends to wait outside, the on-duty cops took me inside. One inspector Poovaiah started asking me questions about Prakash. I told him that he had spoken to me about being harassed at home. But the cops did not believe me and started harassing me.”

Meanwhile, Poovaiah received a call. After talking for a while, he hung up assuring the caller that Celina would be “taught a lesson”. Celina said, “Then he started hitting me on my back with a lathi and shifted me to another room. The cops kept assaulting me till 11 pm. Not a single woman constable was there at the police station — all of them were men and they harassed me like anything. They hit me on my back, hands, thighs and legs. They assaulted me every 10 minutes. It was brutal. I told the police that Prakash used to like me, but we decided to do nothing about it as he had a family. There was no reason for me to kidnap him. But the cops were in no mood to listen.”

 Unable to take the beating any more, Celina lost consciousness. “I do not know what happened. When I opened my eyes again, I was in a hospital. Later, I came to know from my brothers that the police had shifted me to the nearby Chaitanya Hospital,” she said.

 The hospital records, copies of which are with Bangalore Mirror, said that Celina had to be admitted to the ICU as she lost consciousness after a fall at the police station. Apart from swellings on her back and the right side of the hip joint, there were abrasions on her right arm.

Celina’s brothers shifted her to Bowring Hospital as the charges at Chaitanya, a private hospital, were too steep. Bowring Hospital records, too, pointed out to injuries on her body. Celina said, “The cops could have questioned me the next morning, but they tortured me in the night. Worse, there was no woman constable. Inspector Poovaiah was very rude. He was the first one to hit me.

    “Why would I kidnap my own friend who used to like me? In fact, whenever Prakash told me that he wanted to give me a new lease of life, I used to tell him to discuss it with his wife. Before he went missing, he told me that he wanted to take a break from his family. When I advised him not to, he switched off his mobile. Subsequently, the cops picked me up.”

    Two days after the brutal incident, Prakash returned home and told the police that he was a good friend of Celina.     But why did the cops act so brutally? Inspector Poovaiah trashed it all, saying, “It is true that we called her to the police station based on a complaint. While interrogating, she fainted as she had low blood pressure and we admitted her to a hospital for first-aid. That is all, and we have not assaulted her. Now that Prakash is back with his family, Celina and her relatives have started a different drama.”

    When asked about the injuries, the police said Celina inflicted them on herself to “build her case”. However, the cops had no answer when asked why they flouted the rules by calling her to the police station at night and detained her till 11 pm.

    On Monday, Celina is meeting representatives of the state human rights commission and director general of police Ajai Kumar Singh to lodge a formal complaint against the R T Nagar cops.  

 I told him that I would come the next day. But he insisted it would take 10 minutes

To ensure prized baby boy, Indians flock to Bangkok

To ensure prized baby boy, Indians flock to Bangkok
Dec 27, 2010
http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/india/To-ensure-prized-baby-boy-Indians-flock-to-Bangkok/articleshow/7169495.cms
NEW DELHI: Aamita from Delhi has a dark secret. Last year, without telling family or friends, she boarded a plane to Thailand to undergo IVF treatment. A mother of two girls by then, Aamita was perfectly fertile and would have had no problem conceiving again. But she wanted a boy.

Gender selection is illegal in India, but a growing number of women like Aamita are finding a way round the ban by going to Thailand where there are no laws against it. Doctors use preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD), a method that involves producing embryos through IVF and implanting only those of the desired gender into the womb. Results are nearly 100% accurate.

One clinic in Bangkok reports a significant increase in enquiries from India in the last year, while another claims web enquiries from Indian couples have doubled in the past 10 months. At around $8,500, excluding flights, it's not cheap, but it seems a price couples are willing to pay.

"I don't remember an Indian couple ever asking for a girl," acknowledges Richard Burtan-Sanchez, a consultant at Gender Selection Bangkok.

Aamita, 35, explains her decision, "I already had two grown-up girls and I never thought I wanted to have another baby. But one day I started thinking I don't have a complete family. My daughters are missing the chance to have a brother: the security, the festivals, gosing to his home when they're older. I didn't want to keep going for an abortion and this way I could be sure of getting a boy. My husband thought I was mad wanting to have a baby at my age. I went by myself to a clinic in Bangkok. I was there for just a week. It was an easy experience, actually more like a holiday."

Couples from around the world flock to Thailand for cheap, reliable gender selection treatment. But while half of them from the UK, Australia, Europe and the US are looking to have girls to balance their families, Indian couples have only one motivation.

Indian couples want male heirs. Pooja from Delhi cites an example: "A Page 3 couple went for gender selection, but they won't tell anyone. They're embarrassed that although they're modern in every other way, well travelled, open-minded — she wears short skirts — they still want a son. There's a lot of money in the family, so they want an heir and to carry on the family name."

Not everyone has as good an experience as Aamita. Many Indian women turn up in Thailand terrified as their husbands arrange the procedure and leave their wives in the dark right until the last minute. "With Indian couples, around 80% of enquiries are from the husband and not the wife," says Sanchez-Burton. Some men don't tell their wives until very late in the process. "We've had many frantic emails from Indian women asking, can you please tell me what's going to happen? It's the men who want an heir and are being proactive, while the women are not so keen on IVF and are happier to have a girl."

Priya from Delhi had to go to Bangkok twice and called the process tedious. But she weighed her options and decided going to Thailand was the lesser evil: "The stress of abortion if it is not a boy is too much. So it is easy to go with this choice."

Others who can't afford the cost of treatment in Thailand are still resorting to traditional methods of gender selection in India, even though they are all banned. And while PGD involves choosing embryos before conception, traditional methods involve killing the foetus at a much later stage in its development. These include having an ultrasound, amniocentesis or fetal blood test to determine the gender. Women then have abortions if they discover they do not have the gender they want.

Lab director Dr SPS Virk at Virk Hospital in Jalandhar says: "Most know gender selection is illegal, but we still get enquiries. We have to tell them it's not available. Out of a 100 phone call enquiries we get 10-15 ask about having a son."

(Names changed upon request) 

What is PGD? 

Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) involves genetic investigation of early stage embryos that have been produced through in-vitro fertilization (IVF) to determine their gender. Through IVF, egg cells are fertilized by sperm outside the body. The embryos created are then cultured in the laboratory for three days, when they will have developed into approximately eight cells. Then one or two cells are removed for testing under a powerful microscope, to identify the gender. Embryos of the desired gender are then implanted in the womb.

Man charged with raping his daughter in Vishakapatnam

Man charged with raping his daughter
Dec 25, 2010
http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/hyderabad/Man-charged-with-raping-his-daughter/articleshow/7159442.cms
BHIMILI (Visakhapatnam): A 50-year-old man has been charged with raping his 16-year-old daughter repeatedly over the past four years.

The heinous act came to light on Friday when the man, Potnuri Raju, an RMP doctor practising at Padmanabham, 20 km from here, allegedly tried to sexually molest his 14-year-old younger daughter. Enraged over this, the elder daughter approached AIDWA, the women's wing of the CPM, and complained that her father had been raping her for four years and that he tried to do the same to her younger sister on Friday.

AIDWA members immediately took the matter to the police, who registered a case and arrested the father. Shockingly, Raju's wife reportedly knew of his actions. Charges under Sections 376 (rape) and 506 (threatening) of IPC were booked against the accused. The RMP doctor was residing with his wife and two daughters in Tagarapuvalasa, two km from here, since two years.

South African husband admits plotting to have wife murdered in case echoing Dewani honeymoon killing allegations

South African husband admits plotting to have wife murdered in case echoing Dewani honeymoon killing allegations
24th December 2010
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1341208/South-African-husband-admits-plotting-wife-murdered-case-echoing-Dewani-killing-allegations.html

A South African man killed his wife in a staged car jacking in a case that appears to bear some similarities to the allegations against Briton Shrien Dewani.
Rajive Sewnarain was jailed for life yesterday after paying two hitmen £2,880 to ambush his car in Durban and shoot his wife, Shanaaz.
The 42-year-old was pushed out of the hired Hyundai Getz moments before the gunmen blasted the mother of his two children twice in the chest and once in the neck.
Tragic: Rajive Sewnarain confessed to having his wife Shanaaz murdered in an arranged car-jacking

The transport company boss initially told police an unknown man had attacked the car as he drove home in Durban on December 10 with his wife sitting beside him.
He claimed he pleaded for the couple's lives before blacking out by the roadside after being pushed out of the car and shot.

Sewnarain was taken to hospital for treatment and feigned shock when told his wife had been killed.
But he later confessed his part in the murder after police questioned him on apparent inconsistencies in his account.

Arrest: Shrien Dewani and Anni Dewani on their wedding day. Anni was murdered on her honeymoon as she and her new husband drove through Cape Town

Sewnarain admitted the hit had been arranged to look like a botched hijacking, the court in Durban was told.
He said his marriage had been volatile and that earlier this month an underworld figure identified as 'Boxer' had approached him to offer to 'take his wife out of his life'.

'He told me that I should take my wife to buy pizza and then drive to my workplace and give him a missed call,' Sewnarain said.

'I would then drive down the road and, at an arranged spot, someone would jump into the car and this person would carry out the hit.'
The case bears similarities to what police allege may have happened to Anni Dewani who was killed on honeymoon in Cape Town last month.
Her millionaire husband told police he was forced out of the car unharmed by two gunmen who went on to shoot his wife dead.
Police are investigating allegations that Dewani paid two men and his taxi driver £1,400 to murder her after they ambushed the couple's taxi as they drove through an impoverished township near Cape Town.
Prosecutors yesterday submitted a formal request to the South African Justice Department for Dewani to be extradited to the country from Britain.
Mthunzi Mhaga, a spokesman for the National Prosecuting Authority, said it was 'very confident' that the British authorities will accede to the request.
'We believe that in time we will have him here as an accused,' he said.
Dewani, who denies any wrongdoing, is currently bailed on £250,000 at his family home in Bristol.
His lawyer has said he is expected to fight extradition.

MIDNIGHT MASS: SOLEMNITY OF THE NATIVITY OF THE LORD. HOMILY OF HIS HOLINESS BENEDICT XVI

Dear Brothers and Sisters!
“You are my son, this day I have begotten you” – with this passage from Psalm 2 the Church begins the liturgy of this holy night. She knows that this passage originally formed part of the coronation rite of the kings of Israel. The king, who in himself is a man like others, becomes the “Son of God” through being called and installed in his office. It is a kind of adoption by God, a decisive act by which he grants a new existence to this man, drawing him into his own being. The reading from the prophet Isaiah that we have just heard presents the same process even more clearly in a situation of hardship and danger for Israel:
“To us a child is born, to us a son is given. The government will be upon his shoulder” (Is 9:6). Installation in the office of king is like a second birth. As one newly born through God’s personal choice, as a child born of God, the king embodies hope. On his shoulders the future rests. He is the bearer of the promise of peace. On that night in Bethlehem this prophetic saying came true in a way that would still have been unimaginable at the time of Isaiah. Yes indeed, now it really is a child on whose shoulders government is laid. In him the new kingship appears that God establishes in the world. This child is truly born of God. It is God’s eternal Word that unites humanity with divinity. To this child belong those titles of honour which Isaiah’s coronation song attributes to him: Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace (Is 9:6). Yes, this king does not need counsellors drawn from the wise of this world. He bears in himself God’s wisdom and God’s counsel. In the weakness of infancy, he is the mighty God and he shows us God’s own might in contrast to the self-asserting powers of this world.

Truly, the words of Israel’s coronation rite were only ever rites of hope which looked ahead to a distant future that God would bestow. None of the kings who were greeted in this way lived up to the sublime content of these words. In all of them, those words about divine sonship, about installation into the heritage of the peoples, about making the ends of the earth their possession (Ps 2:8) were only pointers towards what was to come – as it were signposts of hope indicating a future that at that moment was still beyond comprehension. Thus the fulfilment of the prophecy, which began that night in Bethlehem, is both infinitely greater and in worldly terms smaller than the prophecy itself might lead one to imagine. It is greater in the sense that this child is truly the Son of God, truly “God from God, light from light, begotten not made, of one being with the Father”. The infinite distance between God and man is overcome. God has not only bent down, as we read in the Psalms; he has truly “come down”, he has come into the world, he has become one of us, in order to draw all of us to himself. This child is truly Emmanuel – God-with-us. His kingdom truly stretches to the ends of the earth. He has truly built islands of peace in the world-encompassing breadth of the holy Eucharist. Wherever it is celebrated, an island of peace arises, of God’s own peace. This child has ignited the light of goodness in men and has given them strength to overcome the tyranny of might. This child builds his kingdom in every generation from within, from the heart. But at the same time it is true that the “rod of his oppressor” is not yet broken, the boots of warriors continue to tramp and the “garment rolled in blood” (Is 9:4f) still remains. So part of this night is simply joy at God’s closeness. We are grateful that God gives himself into our hands as a child, begging as it were for our love, implanting his peace in our hearts. But this joy is also a prayer: Lord, make your promise come fully true. Break the rods of the oppressors. Burn the tramping boots. Let the time of the garments rolled in blood come to an end. Fulfil the prophecy that “of peace there will be no end” (Is 9:7). We thank you for your goodness, but we also ask you to show forth your power. Establish the dominion of your truth and your love in the world – the “kingdom of righteousness, love and peace”.

“Mary gave birth to her first-born son” (Lk 2:7). In this sentence Saint Luke recounts quite soberly the great event to which the prophecies from Israel’s history had pointed. Luke calls the child the “first-born”. In the language which developed within the sacred Scripture of the Old Covenant, “first-born” does not mean the first of a series of children. The word “first-born” is a title of honour, quite independently of whether other brothers and sisters follow or not. So Israel is designated by God in the Book of Exodus (4:22) as “my first-born Son”, and this expresses Israel’s election, its singular dignity, the particular love of God the Father. The early Church knew that in Jesus this saying had acquired a new depth, that the promises made to Israel were summed up in him. Thus the Letter to the Hebrews calls Jesus “the first-born”, simply in order to designate him as the Son sent into the world by God (cf. 1:5-7) after the ground had been prepared by Old Testament prophecy. The first-born belongs to God in a special way – and therefore he had to be handed over to God in a special way – as in many religions – and he had to be ransomed through a vicarious sacrifice, as Saint Luke recounts in the episode of the Presentation in the Temple. The first-born belongs to God in a special way, and is as it were destined for sacrifice. In Jesus’ sacrifice on the Cross this destiny of the first-born is fulfilled in a unique way. In his person he brings humanity before God and unites man with God in such a way that God becomes all in all. Saint Paul amplified and deepened the idea of Jesus as first-born in the Letters to the Colossians and to the Ephesians: Jesus, we read in these letters, is the first-born of all creation – the true prototype of man, according to which God formed the human creature. Man can be the image of God because Jesus is both God and man, the true image of God and of man. Furthermore, as these letters tell us, he is the first-born from the dead. In the resurrection he has broken down the wall of death for all of us. He has opened up to man the dimension of eternal life in fellowship with God. Finally, it is said to us that he is the first-born of many brothers. Yes indeed, now he really is the first of a series of brothers and sisters: the first, that is, who opens up for us the possibility of communing with God. He creates true brotherhood – not the kind defiled by sin as in the case of Cain and Abel, or Romulus and Remus, but the new brotherhood in which we are God’s own family. This new family of God begins at the moment when Mary wraps her first-born in swaddling clothes and lays him in a manger. Let us pray to him: Lord Jesus, who wanted to be born as the first of many brothers and sisters, grant us the grace of true brotherhood. Help us to become like you. Help us to recognize your face in others who need our assistance, in those who are suffering or forsaken, in all people, and help us to live together with you as brothers and sisters, so as to become one family, your family.

At the end of the Christmas Gospel, we are told that a great heavenly host of angels praised God and said: “Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace among men with whom he is pleased!” (Lk 2:14). The Church has extended this song of praise, which the angels sang in response to the event of the holy night, into a hymn of joy at God’s glory – “we praise you for your glory”. We praise you for the beauty, for the greatness, for the goodness of God, which becomes visible to us this night. The appearing of beauty, of the beautiful, makes us happy without our having to ask what use it can serve. God’s glory, from which all beauty derives, causes us to break out in astonishment and joy. Anyone who catches a glimpse of God experiences joy, and on this night we see something of his light. But the angels’ message on that holy night also spoke of men: “Peace among men with whom he is pleased”. The Latin translation of the angels’ song that we use in the liturgy, taken from Saint Jerome, is slightly different: “peace to men of good will”. The expression “men of good will” has become an important part of the Church’s vocabulary in recent decades. But which is the correct translation? We must read both texts together; only in this way do we truly understand the angels’ song. It would be a false interpretation to see this exclusively as the action of God, as if he had not called man to a free response of love. But it would be equally mistaken to adopt a moralizing interpretation as if man were so to speak able to redeem himself by his good will. Both elements belong together: grace and freedom, God’s prior love for us, without which we could not love him, and the response that he awaits from us, the response that he asks for so palpably through the birth of his son. We cannot divide up into independent entities the interplay of grace and freedom, or the interplay of call and response. The two are inseparably woven together. So this part of the angels’ message is both promise and call at the same time. God has anticipated us with the gift of his Son. God anticipates us again and again in unexpected ways. He does not cease to search for us, to raise us up as often as we might need. He does not abandon the lost sheep in the wilderness into which it had strayed. God does not allow himself to be confounded by our sin. Again and again he begins afresh with us. But he is still waiting for us to join him in love. He loves us, so that we too may become people who love, so that there may be peace on earth.

Saint Luke does not say that the angels sang. He states quite soberly: the heavenly host praised God and said: “Glory to God in the highest” (Lk 2:13f.). But men have always known that the speech of angels is different from human speech, and that above all on this night of joyful proclamation it was in song that they extolled God’s heavenly glory. So this angelic song has been recognized from the earliest days as music proceeding from God, indeed, as an invitation to join in the singing with hearts filled with joy at the fact that we are loved by God. Cantare amantis est, says Saint Augustine: singing belongs to one who loves. Thus, down the centuries, the angels’ song has again and again become a song of love and joy, a song of those who love. At this hour, full of thankfulness, we join in the singing of all the centuries, singing that unites heaven and earth, angels and men. Yes, indeed, we praise you for your glory. We praise you for your love. Grant that we may join with you in love more and more and thus become people of peace. Amen.

How a third of us believe a guardian angel is looking over us

How a third of Britons believe a guardian angel is looking over us


http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1340944/How-believe-guardian-angel-looking-us.html

23rd December 2010

Nearly a third of Britons – 29 per cent – believe that a guardian angel is always watching over them, according to research.

A slightly higher number – 31 per cent – admit they believe in angels, while one in 20 – or 5 per cent – say they have actually seen or heard one.

Just 17 per cent say they are not sure what to believe.
Guardian angel: Watching over adventurous children
Guardian angel: Watching over adventurous children

London has the highest levels of believers at 40 per cent, according to a survey by the Bible Society and Christian Research.

The North East scores the lowest, at 17 per cent.

People in the capital also score the highest for believing a guardian angel watches over them, at 37 per cent, compared with 22 per cent in Scotland and the North East.

The survey shows that 45 per cent of people interviewed from Oxford and 43 per cent of those from Hull believe they have a guardian angel.

This figure falls to 16 per cent for those in Edinburgh and Plymouth.

But researchers warn that the city results were based on small numbers – with only 17 people interviewed from Oxford, 19 from Hull, 39 from Edinburgh and 27 from Plymouth.

Other findings show that nearly four in five people – or

79 per cent – believe Nativity plays should be performed in schools, with the 45 to 54 age group most supportive.

Canon Dr Ann Holt, spokesman for the Bible Society, said: ‘There is plenty of evidence that there are presences in this world beyond the human.

‘The fact that a third of this country believes in angels is a sign of a spiritual need within many of us.

‘An angel is God’s messenger and the Bible affirms this through the many appearances of angels in different forms.’

Corporates run for cover against ‘pro-women’ Sexual harassment Bill

Corporates run for cover against ‘pro-women’ Sexual harassment Bill: Men feel it is loaded against them as even the RTI Act cannot be used to seek information on false allegations and misuse.
Also, punishment for false complaint is not ‘mandatory but discretionary’. Meanwhile, companies scurry to insure themselves against harassment complaints
http://www.bangaloremirror.com/article/1/201012232010122307550885181cf4f53/Corporates-run-for-cover-against-%E2%80%98prowomen%E2%80%99-Bill.html

December 23, 2010

The Protection of Women Against Sexual Harassment at Workplace Bill 2010 is yet to become a law. But corporate houses in Bangalore are already running scared of it.

Women are indispensable at workplace, say corporates. Neither can they be segregated from male colleagues

Explaining the apprehension of the corporates, HR consultant Ashwin Sundar told Bangalore Mirror, “Companies fear that they will have to change the way they operate if such a law comes into force. So, they are securing themselves financially by taking out insurance cover against complaints of sexual harassment.”
A consultant of Marsh India Insurance Brokers said, “Almost every listed IT company in Bangalore has an Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI) cover. EPLI also covers claims on sexual harassment. There has been a recent spurt in enquiries on EPLI. Once the new law is in place, it will increase awareness about this stand-alone insurance policy.
However, the limits of this insurance policy can only be gauged after the law comes into force, and claims are made.”
As of now, the average liability limit of an EPLI ranges between Rs 10 crore and Rs 15 crore, and the highest known is of Rs 50 crore. The insurance covers companies, their directors, officers and employees against complaints of wrongful act.
Wrongful act includes harassment, sexual or otherwise, and discrimination on the basis of gender, race or creed. Policy words may vary from company to company, and not all insurance companies offer the EPLI, another Marsh India consultant said.

PREMIUM NOT UNIFORMThough there is a spurt in the demand for EPLI, insurance providers do not have specific premia. Even in the case of two companies opting for a similar liability limit the premium each will be paying might vary. Reason: Many issues are factored, such as the number of employees, their geographical spread and the business of the corporate entity. Firms which have offices and employ people in the West, as well as those which generally employ younger people, will pay a higher premium.
“Such claims are more rampant in the West, and it is perceived that younger people get involved in wrongful acts more,” said the vice-president (marketing) of a private insurance company.
A Marsh India consultant said, “As of now there is no thumb-rule for premium. It is expected that the new law on sexual harassment at workplace would bring in some clarity.”

UNFOUNDED FEARS
Corporate advocate S Mahesh said that there were fears that the new law would hamper the recruitment of women. “Some corporates are scared. From whatever they have gathered from news reports, they feel that the law is too strong for a conducive work atmosphere. There are talks like, Men will lose jobs even if they look at women. The perception out there is many corporates will think twice before hiring women,” he said.
Karnataka High Court advocate Susheela S dismissed the view. “It is a foolish apprehension among some corporate houses. Segregating men and women at workplace or completely ignoring women for jobs is highly impossible. Women are indispensable at work place in this age. Men should not be scared of this law as action can be taken only if harassment is proved,” she said.

MISUSE A POSSIBILITY
“In dowry cases, only married men are falsely accused. Here even unmarried men will suffer the same ordeal,” Kumar Jahgirdar, a city-based social activist for gender neutral laws, said.
“The Union law ministry should first ensure that there are enough fast-track courts to deal with such cases. For the pain undergone in the process of law can be worse than the punishment itself.”
Shiva Kumar, management consultant, Sandilla, said, “As of now, no one has asked us to stop scouting for women employees, though the Bill has led to a lot of discussion in the corporate world. Scenarios of separate wings for men and women cannot be contemplated. Women now are indispensable in the workforce. But there is fear about the misuse of the law.”
Jahgirdar has pretty much the same fears. “Section 498A of the Indian Penal Code is being misused rampantly in dowry-related cases. Husbands and their family members are falsely accused of cruelty. The new law has all the ingredients for similar misuse,” he said.

No right to info
»The Bill is not gender neutral. Those opposing it say that it violates Article 15 of the Constitution which prohibits gender discrimination. They argue that women can commit the same crime of sexual harassment against men
»Special provisions in the Bill (Section 14 and Section 15) says that the RTI Act cannot be used to seek information on false allegations and misuse. Only successful and genuine cases will be opened to the media. False cases will be kept out of public knowledge
»Section 8 (1) of the Bill provides for settlement of the matter between the complainant woman and the respondent through conciliation. It can be done on the woman’s request. But the settlement in other terms could only mean extortion, say naysayers. Monetary payments would lead to abuse as those in the committee would try to make money
»Section 12(1) of the Bill says that if a complaint turns out to be false, it would be left to the committee to recommend action against the woman complainant. This means that punishment for false complaint is not mandatory but discretionary. Members of the committee will include external NGOs, whose sole criterion is to be committed to the cause of the women. So, there may not be any punishment for false complaint
»The term ‘sexual harassment’ itself is not defined in the Bill.

Black Widow: Net result: Spouse killing on the rise (Tamper with brakes, Undetectable poisons)

Net result: Spouse killing on the rise
http://www.bangaloremirror.com/article/10/201012212010122107381462197b12da9/Net-result-Spouse-killing-on-the-rise.html
There is an alarming number of websites that tell how to commit murder and get away with it

December 21, 2010

While the internet can help solve a complex crime, it can also help commit one. All one needs to do is type a variation of ‘how to murder your spouse, or how to kill your spouse or how to kill your spouse and get away with it’, and it throws up an alarming number of websites that tell you how to do it.


From the complex chemical combinations to simple techniques, they are all available on the Net for a would-be killer. One of the first reads that comes up to this cold-blooded query is a blog that speaks of an imaginary nursing student looking to kill his wife. “..... a direct dose of KCL with that kind of syringe to the heart will stop it in less than a minute. Mike took a B-D 3ml 25g1 1/2 syringe and put a carefully measured amount of injectable KCL or Potassium Chloride, something easily available to nurses, nursing students, medical students and even veterinarians. As a nurse/nursing student, he’d have plenty of time to practise as well”, says the blog.

The website, ‘howtodothings’, gives you everything from how to choose your weapon to planning the scenario carefully. “Choosing the location where to commit the crime is also an important factor.

Killing someone in a public place without anyone noticing it will definitely be hard for investigators to examine. Collecting DNA samples in a public place will be pointless,” says the website.

There is another website that gives you top ten tips to commit the perfect crime. “Most criminals are caught because they try to hide the crime. What they should have been doing is trying to hide any connection they have to the crime. It doesn’t matter if the police know the crime happened. If your crime involves a gun or weapon of some kind, use it and drop it. First, you need good thick gloves. The thin ones are not good enough as they can split and it is possible to leave fingerprints if they are sufficiently thin. Do not use anything you own and do not buy brands you normally buy unless they are very generic brands. This means you need to go shopping. Shop out of town and shop in large department stores where you are less likely to be remembered. Remember: very common brands only,” cautions the website.

It can’t get more specific even if you paid a professional killer to take you through the basics.

But what’s a murder plan if it doesn’t ensure you do not get caught. A website tells you not to google ‘how to commit murder’ on your computer as it can be used as incriminating evidence. “Google history can be traced on your computer even if you switch off the history option. This can be used as evidence against you,” it says. But then a commentator also goes on to give you a solution. “Use a proxy server for this.” Another says, “If you have a dynamic IP address, they won’t know it is you who is searching for a plan.”

So what are variations that one types for a murder plan?
Here are the some topics researched by people who later went on to murder their spouses and were caught because of the computer: Undetectable poisons, how to tamper brakes, neck-snap break, instant poisons, fatal digoxin doses and accidental insulin overdose.


Bangalore’s infamous six
Bangalore has seen a rise in the number of crimes involving spouses, prompting Police Commissioner Shankar Bidari to make an earnest request asking to “... divorce each and not murder one another”. We bring you a few of these cases where the spouse or partner was the main accused.

2003 Shubha Shankarnarayan, a law student, in cahoots with her parmour Arun Verma, killed her fiance B V Girish near Koramangala Ring Road. She was recently convicted of the crime.

2008 Lakshmi, a newly married techie, was allegedly killed by her husband Manoj who was in love with his colleague.

2009 Honey Mary and her husband Umesh had moved into their new residence in Banaswadi. Honey, who hatched the plot to marry her lover Bipin, tried to stage it as a robbery.

2010 DPS teacher Priyanka Gupta was found murdered in her residence. Her husband Satish Gupta, a HR executive of Infosys who spun an elaborate tale for his alibi, later confessed to the crime.

2010 B Malarvalli, a former techie, was murdered by her spurned admirer T Naveen for marrying another.

2010 The recent murder of Dell employee Payala Surekha is still being investigated. The police suspect the role of her husband Anantha Narayan Mishra in the murder.


Delhi’s dubious record
According to the National Crime Records Bureau, Mumbai leads with the most number of convictions on spousal murders for 2010. The city saw a conviction of nine, followed by Chennai with six convictions, Delhi (4) and Bangalore (1). New Delhi leads the way for the most number of crimes involving spouses in 2010 with 211, followed by Mumbai with 147, Chennai 62 and Bangalore 32.

Sowmya and lover Venkatramana allegedly murdered her husband, Govind, last April 30th. Now, lodged in the same prison, they are constantly inventing smart excuses to be with each other

December 21, 2010

The only regret Sowmya Bhatt and Venkatramana, both of them currently undertrials in Bangalore central prison, have is that they can’t see each other as often as they would like to. Their adulterous love led them to a heinous crime and, as they suffer together in jail, their love grows stronger.
A file photo of Sowmya with  husband Govind and their daughter

Sowmya, a fashion designer, and Venkatramana, a techie, conspired to murder Govind Bhatt, his best friend and Sowmya’s husband and from whom she has a three-year-old daughter. Inside prison, lodged in separate barracks half a kilometre distant, they visibly pine for each other. Jail rules make it very difficult for male and female prisoners to even see each other, but Sowmya and Venkatramana have already contrived to meet three times since they were brought in 20 days ago.

Jail officials confess to being moved by the way the two go about inventing smart excuses to meet up. “On the fourth day after coming in, they met after taking permission from the warden. In the last 20 days, they have met three times and we have seen them holding hands.

 Everyday, they try to meet giving one reason or the other like going to the library or hospital,” a jail official told Bangalore Mirror.


CRIME OF PASSION
Seven months ago, the city police first arrested Soumya and Venkatramana. Sowmya (27) from Kukkeri in Belthangadi taluk, Dakshin Kannada, and Venkatramana Babu (30) allegedly murdered Govinda Bhat (30) on April 30 at his house in Whitefield. Govind, a software engineer, had married Sowmya about three years ago. She wanted to pursue higher studies in fashion designing and joined a course in NITTE in Dakshina Kannada.

Govinda moved in with his friend Venkatramana. Sowmya used to come to meet her husband once in a month and it was then that an affair with Venkatramana began. She started coming to Bangalore more frequently and when her husband was at work, the two would go out for a movie or shopping.
Sowmya and Venkatramana


In early 2010, Govinda came to know about his wife’s affair. One day, coming back from office early, he caught them making out. He was understandably heart broken and had a huge fight with her, but still decided to forgive her. However, Sowmya’s relationship with Venkatramana only grew stronger and finally reached a point when the duo decided to do away with Govinda.

Police said Venkatramana beat up Govinda badly on April 30 and later admitted him to hospital where he died the same day. They reportedly told the hospital that he slipped and fell in the bathroom. It was Whitefield police Inspector B N Gopalakrishna and Sub Inspector Sadanand, suspecting something fishy, who registered a suo motu complaint and investigated the case. When the police saw the call details of Sowmya, they were shocked as she used to call Venkatramana a minimum of 20 times a day and speak for hours. Police also saw the love messages exchanged between the two even after Govinda’s death. Confronted with evidence, they confessed to the murder.

Meanwhile, in jail, prison authorities reveal, Venkatramana hardly sleeps. So too Sowmya. Even when they can’t meet, they keep gazing longingly in the general direction of the other’s barrack. The workings of the heart are mysterious and even the hardened jailors don’t pretend to comprehend it.

135. My name is Legion (for I have MANY children): One from Marilyn, One from Gin and One more from Sin!

Chronicles of an abused, neglected and deprived girl-child in India. Chapter 135. My name is Legion (for we are MANY) Part 2: One from Marilyn, One from Gin and One more from Sin

Exodus 22:22 Ye shall not afflict any (TRUE) widow, or fatherless child.
  23 If thou afflict them in any wise, and they cry at all unto me, I will surely hear their cry;
   24 And my wrath shall wax hot, and I will kill you with the sword; and your wives shall be widows, and your children fatherless.

Mark, 5:9
And He (Jesus) asked him (the man), "What is thy name?" And he answered, saying, "My name is Legion: for we are MANY."


Luke 8:30
And Jesus asked him, saying, "What is thy name?" And he said, "Legion": because MANY demons were entered into him.

>>
Duryodhana was conceived in an act of FORNICATION (before marriage) in the 1970s.

His paternal grandfather 'Many' (alias Legion) had many (two) wives 'Rosey Marry' and 'Marilyn' and many girlfriends since the 1940s (before independence). One was a legally wedded WIFE and the other was an ILLEGALLY UNWED mistress.


The Bigamous grandfather had many children from his first wife and one daughter from the second mistress (Chinna Veedu).

 Like they said, MANY (alias Legion) had many Children: One from Marilyn, One from Gin and One more from Sin !

He had two huts (one for the wife and one for the mistress).

And like Poorkodi said, " They had Jhopdi Pattai huts"! despite having a BA, LLB legal degree and a Government Job.

The sons got angry that the Legitimate Daughter was given the Government Job nominated on MANY's retirement.
 The second wife and the daughter were neglected by the FIRST FAMILY. 

Wrongfully so, the dialogue used was, "You have NO RIGHTS! You are the child of the Second wife!"

Fornicators and the Bible
1 Corinthians 5:9 I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators:

1 Corinthians 5:10 Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world.

1 Corinthians 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

1 Corinthians 10:8 Nor may we be fornicators, like some of them who committed fornication and on a single day 23,000 of them fell dead.

1 Timothy 1:10 fornicators, sodomites, slave-dealers, liars and false witnesses; and for whatever else is opposed to wholesome teaching

Hebrews 13:4 Let marriage be held in honour among all, and let the marriage bed be unpolluted; for fornicators and adulterers God will judge.

Revelation 21:8 But as for cowards and the unfaithful, and the polluted, and murderers, fornicators, and those who practise magic or worship idols, and all liars--the portion allotted to them shall be in the Lake which burns with fire and sulphur. This is the Second Death."

Revelation 22:15 The unclean are shut out, and so are all who practise magic, all fornicators, all murderers, and those who worship idols, and every one who loves falsehood and tells lies.


The black widow Rosemary  West claimed all the promises of the 'Survivor's benefits' of the eldest legitimate child, despite getting re-married again to the adulterous mechanic Baalaji.
Picture: Rose West and second husband mechanic Baalaji

Rosemary West could not KEEP Baalaji in a marriage, because he got accused of the murder of Dr Madhusudan by Rosemary West. 

The rows about who caused the death of Dr Madhusudan and who was the BIOLOGICAL FATHER of a child  made Baalaji abandon Rosemary within a month.

The Legitimate girl-child got NOTHING from the BLOOD MONEY of her own Father.

The black widow (and her relatives) drank all the blood money of the late father and gave it to all her lovers (and their families).

1. The black widow claimed the 'widow's pension' from the Government fraudently, not declaring of her re-marriage to mechanic Baalaji.

2. The black widow claimed the House alloted to the late Dr Madhusudan (which he applied during his lifetime) in Yelahanka New Town.

3. The black widow claimed the Insurance policy

4. The black widow claimed the Accident claim amount, and squandered the amount which was allocated to the Legitimate girl-child.

5. And, what else.

Criminal misrepresentation, fraud and withholding information from the Government and Child (about re-marriage to Baalaji).
And, despite getting all the benefits from the estate/derivatives of the late husband, she kept on harassing the legitimate girl-child to work as a Child labourer, and forced her to pay all the Bills from childhood (while raising the status of the son Peeping Tom, to that of a Husband; and enjoying all the rights and benefits from the BLOOD MONEY of the late husband).

BACK TO THE FUTURE
The late Dr Madhusudan helped in at least FOUR Shotgun weddings for his two sisters and in-laws.
If it was not for Dr Madhusudan, there would have been many absentees in the family, and the women would have been abandoned as loose women.
"The Wolf in the Sheep's clothing" fornicated with another wolf, and delivered the Black sheep of the family.
The cloned Black sheep of the family 'Duryodhana' tried to act as the 'LEGITIMATE' representative of the family. However, as Poorkodi said, he was the ILLEGITIMATE representative of the family (unauthorized to perpetrate acts of instigation against the legitimate fatherless child).

Rose West married Dr Madhusudan for 42 months, till a Cruel "accident" took him away. Dr Madhusudan had 1 legitimate daughter. His scooter was tampered on multiple occasions by the mechanic Baalaji.
The adulterous Baalaji tampered with the scooter of Dr Madhusudan leading to a fatal accident.
