Humanitarian activists are concerned about the way rapists are not only committing rape, but also mutilating and then cruelly murdering children. Psychologists think that rape is not a sexual perversion, rather it denotes a deterioration of their moral values. When a rapist uses rape as a tool for revenge, the chances for perversion increase. “Dr Bilkis added that such experiences at a young age would cast negativity throughout a child’s whole life. Rape is not a result of mental perversion, it is a result of moral deficiency.”She continued: “Rapists have personality disorders.

The prime properties in Mumbai's Nagpada belonged to Dawood but his mother and sister, both dead, had taken possession of them. Dawood's mother and sister had challenged the takeover after the 1993 serial blasts in Mumbai in which 257 were killed. Amina Kaskar and Hasina Parkar had moved the Supreme Court after the tribunal and the Delhi High Court dismissed their challenge to the takeover order in July 1998. They both reportedly had seven residential properties worth millions in their names which were allegedly acquired with Dawood's illegal wealth. Dawood Ibrahim is the mastermind of the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts.

The murkiness continues on wider Russia policy too, with the White House debunking earlier talk by Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the United Nations, about plans for a new round of sanctions against Moscow. In striking Syria, Washington demonstrated that it still remains the dominant military force in the Mediterranean — at least when it chooses to ramp up its forces. Last week saw Moscow reportedly blocking GPS signals over parts of Syria, thereby interfering with the activities of US drones. Still, it’s difficult not to conclude that the idiosyncratic nature of the Trump presidency may make managing this more difficult. To an extent, the weekend Syria strikes were little more than highly ritualized theatre, a largely bloodless exercise in the US enforcing red lines and standing up to Russian intimidation.

When a report finds that 95% of Earth’s population is inhaling unsafe air, we should all be worried. The report, filed by Boston-based Health Effects Institute (HEI), also concluded that most of that percentage live in underdeveloped countries. Diseases related to air pollution cause over 122,000 deaths in Bangladesh each year, according to the HEI report. Make no mistake: Air pollution is a public health hazard. It is hard to think of a worthier goal than cleaning up the air that we, and our future generations, will breathe.

The Telangana forest department is administering saline treatment to the tree to save its life from termite infestation.

Eating well is more than just having enough food on your plate; it’s also about having a good mix of nutrient-dense food. Poor households struggle with bothThe second mythNutrition is about children: Nutrition is as much about women as it is about children. Therefore, improving women empowerment, changing social norms, and addressing inter and intra-household power dynamics in terms of how a pregnant or lactating mother is treated within the community and within her home are critical.
