Is suicide only solution to the problems?

To achieve the first position in school, financial instability, self doubt, disappointment is hitting teenager, both mentally and emotionally. Due to amateurity it gets very difficult to dissolve it and suicide seems the only way left. According to official data, over 24,000 teenagers aged 14 to 18 years committed suicide between 2017 and 2019, with test failure accounting for over 4,000 of these cases.
The National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) has provided unified statistics on child suicide to Parliament. Between 2017 and 2019, 24,568 youngsters, including 13,325 females, aged 14 to 18, perished by suicide, according to the statistics. In 2017, a total of 8,029 youngsters between the ages of 14 and 18 died by suicide. According to the report, the number grew to 8,162 in 2018 and then to 8,377 in 2019.

Parents know their children more than anyone else. But still a gap build in their relationship. Isolating, emotional or social withdrawal, Irritability, mood swings, hopelessness, Statements of “I am a burden”, Questioning the purpose of their life, Lack of interest in usual activities, Acting out behaviors, running away, Anger, rage, agitation, Alcohol and drug use, other risky activities, Neglecting their personal appearance, Obsession with death and dying, Lack of response to praise. These things are considering the first step in creating gap in between parents and children, which led them in the way to depression, anxiety, disturbing mental health. In this time the children lost their desire to live and grow. At this time decision of Suicide attempts are frequently impulsively taken and are linked to feelings of grief, perplexity, anger, stress, or concentration and hyperactivity difficulties. Suicide may have appeared to be a solution to their issues at the time, but it had a family-wide impact. For preventing this unwanted situation immediate mental and emotional assistance is critical at this time by the parents.

Pegasus spyware hijacked over 300 Indian phone number

The technology upgradation also upgrade the crime parameters. The crime or data hacking via internet is not a new concept. But if it happens in a large scale then it somewhere questions the security of countrymen.
A similar insurance come in concentration, The Pegasus Spyware is said to have hijacked over 300 verified Indian phone numbers. The hacked database was discovered by Forbidden Stories, a Paris-based media organisation, and Amnesty International, leading to an investigation by The Wire and The Washington Post, among others.
Opposition ministers, two center-right ministers, a suspected former Supreme Court judge, and others appear on a leaked list of monitoring targets who were spied on by an Israeli espionage technology firm.
NSO Group, an Israeli covert tech business, sells Pegasus to’vetted’ (special) governments to fight terrorism and crime. However, it is said that it has been utilised by countries and groups to prosecute journalists, human rights advocates, and members of the ruling party’s opposition.
It is malicious software that is meant to get access to devices without your knowledge and collect personal information (passwords, live voice calls, contacts, cameras, microphone, and so on).

Pegasus spyware is the most advanced malware, capable of infiltrating Apple systems, which boast the world’s strongest security system.
Rahul Gandhi, the Congress leader, is one of the possible targets.Along with him IT Minister Aswini Vaishnaw, and poll strategist Prashant Kishor on the database. Three phone numbers belonging to the Supreme Cort staffer who had accused former CJI Ranjan Gogoi of sexual harassment in 2019 were part of the leaked database. On the list are journalists from Hindustan Times, The Wire, The Indian Express, Live Mint, India Today, The Hindu, Newsclick, and others, as well as members of the legal profession and merchants.
According to reports, Pegasus is employed in around 45 nations, including India. While each country’s regulations vary, the use of hacking to distribute surveillance spyware in India by any anyone, private or official, is illegal under the Information Technology Act.
“India is a robust democracy that is committed to ensuring the right to privacy to all citizens as a fundamental right,” the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology said in a letter shared by ANI, adding that “allegations regarding government surveillance on specific people has no concrete basis or truth.”
According to a survey conducted by Comparitech in the United Kingdom, India has the third worst privacy legislation in the world. There is currently no data protection legislation in place, and the Draft Data Protection Bill makes no mention of surveillance reform.
According to the Press Club of India. “This is the first time in our country’s history that all of our pillars have come together. The court, legislators, media, CEOs, and ministers have all been spied on. This is unprecedented, and the PCI strongly rejects it. The probing was carried out with ulterior motivations in mind.”

School or a Morgue

On Penelakut Island, formerly known as Kuper Island, in British Columbia, Canada, unmarked graves containing the corpses of more than 160 Indigenous children were discovered last month. The graves were discovered by members of the Penelakut Tribe on the grounds of the former Kuper Island Industrial School, which was part of a nationwide network of compulsory state-run boarding schools for Indigenous children in Canada that subjected children to traumatic family separation, cultural erasure, and abuse. On July 8, members of the Penelakut Tribe published a newsletter about their finding, which they shared online with other tribes.
This is the most recent discovery of its kind in recent months. At historic Indigenous residential boarding schools across Canada, more than 1,000 unmarked children’s graves and bones have been discovered. In addition to the Penelakut Island remains, unmarked graves were discovered by First Nations groups in British Columbia and Saskatchewan utilising ground-penetrating radar scans between May and July.
Reuters reported on May 28 that representatives of the Tk’emlps te Secwépemc Nation discovered the remains of 215 children buried in the former Kamloops Indian Residential School, which was managed by the Catholic Church in British Columbia from 1890 to 1978. According to BBC News, the Cowessess First Nation reported on June 24 that radar scans have discovered up to 751 unmarked graves at the site of the Marieval Indian Residential School in Saskatchewan, which was run by the Catholic Church from 1899 until 1997. Then, on June 30, representatives of the Lower Kootenay Band, a Ktunaxa Nation member band, revealed that a recent search at the site of the former St. Eugene’s Mission School — another Catholic institution in British Columbia that operated from 1890 to 1970 — uncovered another 182 unmarked, shallow graves containing children’s remains, according to CNN. (According to the CBC, the Penelakut Tribe did not disclose how the tombs on the island were discovered or whether any bodies had been recovered.)

According to NPR, some of the children who died in Kamloops were as young as three years old, and former students at dozens of residential schools have described systemic cruelty and neglect. According to a government report released in 2015 by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada, student deaths numbered in the thousands over decades, and children who died were frequently buried on school grounds so that authorities could avoid the costs of shipping remains home to their families.
More than 130 residential schools, including Kamloops, Marieval, St. Eugene’s, and Kuper Island, were sponsored by the Canadian government for over 150 years, from 1863 to 1998, and many of the schools were run by Christian churches until 1969. According to Indigenous Foundations, a website for the University of British Columbia’s First Nations Studies Program, these institutions forcefully removed Indigenous children from their families and segregated them from their communities and traditions.
Over 150,000 Indigenous students from First Nations, Métis (Indigenous people from regions of Canada who are of Indigenous and European heritage), and Inuit communities attended these schools throughout that time, according to Indian Country Today. According to Indigenous Foundations, all Indigenous children from 7 to 15 were obliged by law to attend a residential school until 1951. However, torture persisted as long as the schools remained open, and kids “experienced harsh and sometimes deadly treatment,” according to a statement released on June 30 by leaders of the Lower Kootenay Band.
Children of all ages were subjected to harsh regulations in school that limited their use of Indigenous languages and prohibited the observance of their traditions and rituals. According to Indigenous Foundations, breaking the rules resulted in harsh punishments, with former students alleging “horrendous abuse at the hands of residential school staff: physical, sexual, emotional, and psychological.”
Thousands of children died as a result of the widespread abuse and neglect in schools. According to the CBC, the number of children who died in residential schools might be ten times greater than the 3,200 listed in a 2015 report by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
According to the Library of Congress, similar residential schools for Native Americans were founded in the United States beginning in the late nineteenth century. Children were also removed from their families and customs in these schools, and they were subjected to severe regulations and frequently cruel treatment.
“Though we don’t know how many children were taken in total, there were 20,000 children in Indian boarding schools by 1900, and by 1925, that number had more than tripled,” according to the National Native American Boarding School Healing Coalition (NABS), a nonprofit founded in 2012 to raise public awareness about the 1869 US Boarding School Policy. According to NABS, the policy’s declared goal was to ‘Kill the Indian, Save the Man.’ Hundreds of thousands of Native American children were undoubtedly removed from their families by the 1960s as a result of the programme. According to NABS, many children never returned from the schools, “and their destinies have yet to be accounted for by the United States government.”
According to a statement released by the US Department of the Interior on June 22, US Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland recently announced the creation of the Federal Indian Boarding School Initiative to evaluate “the problematic legacy of federal boarding school policy.”
According to the CBC, representatives of the Tk’emlps te Secwépemc First Nation will issue a full report on their Kamloops discoveries on July 15, and the Canadian government has promised $27 million to Indigenous communities for the identification of unidentified burial sites.

Sherni ‘the reality that animals are suffering’

Today I watched a movie named “Sherni”. Starring Vidya Balan, the plot of the film comes with the story which somewhere shows the harsh reality, rudeness, and selfishness of humans towards the animals. The fight between man and animal is not something new. In the story, the deep, gloomy jungle transformed into a battleground for a heroic story about a savior who stands against the numerous interests that threaten the fragile ecosystem’s balance.

We can relate it to our day to day life as well. Everyday we came across such news on television where innocent animals are killed just for entertainment. The cruelty which comes as a result of hunting has no limit. They love to kill innocent animals.

This film has a perspective regarding wild animals. The story shows the pathetic situation of wild animals. We are cutting down the forest for our development which led to climate change and it affects the water percentage of the forest as well.

There are various plans made by the government to ease the life of the animals but the corruption is deep rooted in the system which hampers the execution of the plans. And impact the life of the animals.

But few generous people still exists, who are humble towards the animals. They think about the safety of animals as well. But on the other hand, few people only wanted to fulfill their selfish deeds. For that, they kill animals they didn’t think about anyone we can’t even know what all things had happened because the story which is portrayed is a different story and what happened is a whole different story.

In the present era, we can’t fully trust the news or any of the incidents because whatever happened on the ground is different than what we heard. The manipulation of the story level that we can’t even imagine.

Humans are the actual threat to the animals. We kill animals from ages for food, entertainment, and safety. But the fact is if we don’t disturb their livelihoods then they won’t attack.

The film is not claiming to be a true incident but after watching the film we can easily find that it a reflection of reality.

Earth is not only our home, it is also a home for animals, birds, insects, and plants. But still, we can’t give them their rights, their proper space to live their livelihood. We are just thinking about ourselves and we are disturbing or killing the animals day by day. Now when we have destroyed 50% or even more of their livelihoods now some of us realize that we are doing wrong but the percentage of people who realize is very minimal. The safeguard project is not that effective the human being must need to change their mindset towards the environment, animals, plants, and every living creature.

India is among top three countries in cyber crime

India is the first country in the world to develop a white list instead of a blacklist for telecom equipment, ranking 10 out of 194 countries on the Global Cyber Security Index 2020. Cyber security is a worldwide issue that no single country can tackle on its own.
“The plan would holistically encompass the whole ecosystem of cyberspace in India,” said Lt Gen (Dr) Rajesh Pant, National Cybersecurity Coordinator, Prime Minister’s Office, Government of India. According to him, the plan would provide around 80 deliverables and will serve as a framework for dealing with all aspects of cybersecurity, including cyber audit, creating new indigenous skills, data as a national resource, and governance. He was speaking at a Public Affairs Forum of India (PAFI) event called “Cyber Security in the New Normal,” with the topic “Cyber Security in the New Normal.” “In terms of cyber assaults, India is one of the top three countries in the world. Cybercrime is on the rise, and attribution is becoming tough, therefore cyber thieves have begun to use the dark web,” he continued.
The worldwide epidemic has given cyber thieves additional opportunities to attack. During the worldwide epidemic, cybercrime in India increased by over 500%. New technologies such as drones and IoT devices are also posing a hazard. To deal with the rising number of cybercrimes, the government has taken numerous steps to create a safe, secure, and trusted cyberspace. Working from home amid a worldwide epidemic has increased the threat surface enormously.
“A strong structure for cyber security has been put in place, and it has become a necessary service. He went on to say that there are now intentions to modify the IT Act as well.


1 kid goes missing in every 8 minutes

Thirty-three children were rescued from the Allahabad train station on 25 June, and 11 individuals were apprehended by police, according to officials. The youngsters were reportedly being trafficked to Delhi and Punjab. These youngsters are from Bihar and West Bengal, according to Juvenile Court Magistrate Md Hasan Zaidi, and were saved off the North East Special train at the station.
Child trafficking is quite common in India. According to the National Crime Records Bureau, one kid goes missing every eight minutes. Children are sometimes kidnapped from their homes to be bought and sold on the open market. In other situations, youngsters are duped into falling into the hands of traffickers by being offered a job, only to be enslaved once they arrive. Many children are trafficked in India for a variety of purposes, including work, begging, and sexual exploitation. Because of the nature of this crime, it is difficult to trace, and it is difficult to prevent owing to lax enforcement of regulations. According to non-governmental organizations, between 12,000 and 50,000 women and children are smuggled into the country each year as part of the sex trade. In India, there are an estimated 300,000 child beggars. 44,000 youngsters fall into the hands of gangs every year. It is a serious problem which is a big threat to the future generation and increases the crime. This creates a frightening atmosphere in the country. Government must have to take some strict laws to over come from this problem and provide a safe environment to the children. Parents also take care of their children from this evil practice which is happening in India. Because childhood is an important stage for every children and the it impacted their life.

Say No to Drugs

Every year on June 26th, the Worldwide Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking, also known as World Drug Day, is commemorated to raise awareness about drug concerns and to seek international collaboration to battle their negative impacts on health, society, and government. This year’s topic is “Sharing Drug Facts, Saving Lives.” The goal, according to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), is to counteract disinformation about drugs by providing true facts about them, ranging from health hazards and remedies to evidence-based prevention, treatment, and care.
Talking about drug usage and consequences in India. According to National Library of Medicine, Indian adolescents are more likely to use alcohol and drugs in ways that put them at risk, such as getting very drunk, drinking while driving, or mixing drugs and alcohol. Reservation youth have the greatest rate, non-reservation Indians have a lower rate, and non-Indian youth have the lowest rate. The frequency of self-reported alcohol and drug-related outcomes follows the similar pattern, with 15% of reserve elders engaged in an alcohol-related accident. Relationship issues are the most common outcomes. Injection of drugs is uncommon across all age categories.
So we can say it that we have a large number of youth in India but somewhere they are more engaged with drugs. There is a mindset that using drugs make them cool and later on they get addicted to it which destroy their future and increase the crime rate also. It is seemed that many people did crime when they are drugged. The current generation are not acting mature in terms of drugs.
Drugs are only a destroyer of heath, humanity and future of every person. And here comes the saddest part, people knew it very well but still add drugs in their life.

A heinous act that proudly performed

When a girl child is born, her parent begins saving money since then only. But For WHAT they are saving??? Are they saving for her Studies? Or Are they Planning to send her daughter abroad? The answer is ‘NO, they are saving money to continue so called orthodox custom called ‘ *DOWRY* ‘.
The dowry is an ancient tradition, there is no certainty of its origin but it was performed by the whole world. But with the time it faded away from the developed country but still remains in some under developed and developing countries and deep-rooted in India.
Earlier dowry was used as a mark of showing respect to the groom’s family. But it has gradually been misused by some. When a woman’s family is unable to raise the desired dowry gift or money then she is treated badly, beaten, tortured or in worst cases forced to die by her husband or in-laws.
Every year, around 8,000 women die as a result of India’s dowry system. Other instances, women commit themselves as a result of harassment and abuse for not paying the dowry.
Recently, the dowry cases once more seizes the spotlight. Three dowry-related fatalities in a short period of time have sparked uproar in Kerala. Within a 24-hour period, three young ladies died in different regions of the state, reportedly as a result of dowry-related violence.
Archana, a 24-year-old lady, was discovered charred to death at Vizhinjam, Thiruvanathapuram, in the leased home she shared with her husband. He began demanding Rs 3 lakh in dowry to be handed to Suresh’s brother in order to purchase property three months after the wedding.
Second case is of Vismaya, a 24-year-old Ayurveda student, was discovered murdered at her husband’s residence in another dowry-related crime. She had sent her relatives many WhatsApp messages before she died, complaining about her husband’s family harassing her for dowry.
Third case is a 19-year-old lady called Suchitra was discovered dead at her husband’s home in Vallikunnam. While authorities suspect the death was a suicide, an investigation is still underway. Her husband is stationed in Uttarakhand, and Suchitra was at home with his parents at the time of the event.
Once Mahatma Gandhi said, *”Any young man, who makes dowry a condition to marriage, discredits his education and his country and dishonours womanhood* ,” but these lines can be read only not applied even by the well educated man as higher the education/job of the groom higher the dowry (doesn’t matter whosoever the bride is).
I’m not sure how the orthodox practice came to be. But I can’t deny that this behavior simply serves to exacerbate crime against women and gender inequity. The government has outlawed the Dowry system, yet it still exists in India and has an impact on women’s lives. In this fast-growing world where the most of the men questioned feminism, these cases show us the necessity of feminism.

From a TV series to Dadasaheb Phalke

Sushant Singh Rajput, a small town Bollywood actor, was discovered dead a year ago. For everyone, his demise is still a heartbreaking memory. Every day, their fans demand that he be brought to justice on Twitter. In his journey, he had won many hearts.
Sushant Singh Rajput, who began his acting career in 2008 with the TV drama ‘Kis Desh Mein Hai Meraa Dil,’ became a household name after starring opposite Ankita Lokhande in Zee TV’s ‘Pavitra Rishta.’ He quit the television profession shortly after reaching the pinnacle of his career to try his luck in the Hindi cinema industry.
He made his Bollywood debut in 2013 with the film ‘Kai Po Che,’ and since then, the gifted actor has continued to enthral his fans and audiences with the charm of his incredible performances.
The prestigious Dadasaheb Phalke award presented him with the ‘Critic’s Best Actor’ distinction to honour the actor who passed away on June 14, 2020.
The Dadasaheb Phalke International Film Festival’s official Instagram account confirmed the news, writing, “I’m proud of the hard work you’ve put in to get to this point. At the Dadasaheb Phalke International Film Festival Awards 2021, congratulations to Late @sushantsinghrajput for winning the “Critic’s Best Actor” award. We’re missing you!”
The outstanding actor, who died at his flat under strange circumstances, was last seen in the film ‘Dil Bechara’ opposite Sanjana Sanghi.
The romance film, directed by Rajput’s close friend Mukesh Chhabra, is based on John Green’s famous novel ‘The Fault in Our Stars,’ and features actor Saif Ali Khan in a cameo role.
The film was set to be released in theatres on May 8, but due to the coronavirus outbreak, it was postponed until July 24, 2020, when it was released on Disney+ Hotstar and streamed for free to honour Sushant’s final film.
An inquiry by Mumbai Police recently concluded that it was a case of suicide. Sushant’s family, comprising his father and sisters, had filed a FIR in a Patna court accusing his former girlfriend and actress Rhea Chakraborty, as well as her brother Showik Chakraborty, of aiding suicide and syphoning his assets.
The case was investigated by three central agencies: the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), the Enforcement Directorate (ED), and the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB). But still the mystery isn’t solved yet.

We Worship Women but Failed to Respect

There is no sensitivity left in politicians speech. Rape is a very sensitive problem. But who is responsible for that is a big question? The Indian politician play dirty and blame the victims more than the culprits. Sometimes directly and sometimes indirectly.

Recently Meena Kumari, a member of the UP-State Women’s Commission, has stated that giving mobile phones to girls leads to rapes, and has urged parents to keep their daughters away from the gadgets.
“Girls converse on phones and then go away with boys…,” Kumari stated during a Mahila Jansunwai (public hearing of women’s complaints) in Aligarh on Wednesday, in response to a reporter’s question regarding an alleged spike in rape cases in Uttar Pradesh.
Kumari’s comments sparked outrage on social media, with the majority of individuals lambasting her for her odd logic. Many others even argued she wasn’t qualified to be a member of a women’s rights organization.

Many other Politian also came out with such comments:
Tirath Singh Rawat, the Chief Minister of Uttarakhand, made headlines when he made contentious remarks about women wearing torn jeans and how, in his opinion, they are unable to provide the correct atmosphere for their children at home. Rawat made the remarks in Dehradun at a session hosted by the Uttarakhand State Commission for the Protection of Child Rights. He expressed surprise at seeing a lady operating an NGO wearing tattered jeans and expressed concern about the example she was establishing for society. “What sort of message are we sending to society, to our children, if this type of woman goes out into society to meet people and fix their problems?” Everything begins at home. Our children imitate what we do. “A youngster who is taught the appropriate culture at home will never fail in life, no matter how contemporary he gets,” remarked the Chief Minister. He despised youngsters wearing “bare knees” and decried the fact that, whereas the west followed India’s yoga and covered their bodies, “we run towards nudity

After the alleged gangrape of a Dalit lady in Hathras, Uttar Pradesh, sparked widespread indignation and brought back memories of the Nirbhaya incident from 2012, a BJP MLA in the Ballia district made an odd comment in October 2020. “I am a teacher along with being an MLA. Such events (like rape) can be stopped only via sanskar (culture), not shasan (excellent governance) or talwar (relating to sword or power),” the BJP’s Surendra Singh remarked. While the government is dedicated to safeguarding, families should also be dedicated to instilling excellent values in their children. There is no other way to make India beautiful but with Sanskar and Sarkaar,” he stated in the video.

“This woman had claimed that the entire state had raped her,” KPCC president Mullappally Ramachandran stated. If a woman is sexually abused once, we can understand. If that happens again, any woman with self-esteem will either commit suicide or attempt to prevent it from happening again. However, this woman claims she has been abused numerous times

BJP MLA from Ballia, Surendra Singh said Because you lack healthy morals, every victim of sexual assault, rape, or sexual battery is liable for themselves. Consent and communication are not the responsibility of the rapist. The onus is on you to determine how much you can protect your vaginal area.

BJP Leader Ranjeet Srivastav of Barabanki said It suggests you had an affair with the rapist if no one saw you being raped.

There is a problem of the mindset or they are some kinds of aliens. Who don’t understand before putting allegation any female. They are leaders of country and their words reach to almost entire nation. Instead of teaching to male gender, they came up which stupid statement to coverup this heinous crime.
