Swami Vivekananda Jayanti 2019 Quotes: One of India’s most revered spiritual leaders, Swami Vivekananda was born in Kolkata on January 12, 1863, as Narendra Nath Datta. It was in 1887 that he along with other disciples of Ramakrishna Paramhansa took formal vows of sannyasa and renounced the worldly pleasures. Advertising With a special interest in Western philosophy and history, he was often assailed by doubts about the existence of God. Through his speeches and lectures, Vivekananda tried to awaken the religious consciousness among people and also tried to uplift the downtrodden using the principles of practical Vedanta. To take his message to a wider audience, Vivekananda also attended the World’s Parliament of Religions in Chicago in 1893. His iconic speech there that touched topics like universal acceptance, tolerance and religion, got him a standing ovation at the parliament. On his 156th birth anniversary, let’s take a look at some his inspirational and famous quotes that might change the way you look at life: * You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul. * Never think there is anything impossible for the soul. It is the greatest heresy to think so. If there is sin, this is the only sin, to say that you are weak, or others are weak. * The fire that warms us can also consume us; it is not the fault of the fire. * Ask nothing; want nothing in return. Give what you have to give; it will come back to you, but do not think of that now. * Condemn none: if you can stretch out a helping hand, do so. If you cannot, fold your hands, bless your brothers, and let them go their own way. * All differences in this world are of degree, and not of kind, because oneness is the secret of everything. * Where can we go to find God if we cannot see Him in our own hearts and in every living being. * Do one thing at a Time, and while doing it put your whole Soul into it to the exclusion of all else. * The moment I have realised God sitting in the temple of every human body, the moment I stand in reverence before every human being and see God in him – that moment I am free from bondage, everything that binds vanishes, and I am free.
All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Thursday questioned the logic behind the government curbing the practice of Triple Talaq while supporting the "decriminalisation" of homosexuality. He termed it as an attack on the rights conferred upon Muslims by the constitution. "Hundred per cent of the Muslim population is against the move to criminalise Triple Talaq. Why are you criminalising Triple Talaq while supporting the decriminalisation of homosexuality? If sexual minorities can get a choice in Section 377, why can't religious minorities?" he asked during a debate on the controversial bill in the Lok Sabha. Mr Owaisi also criticised a Supreme Court verdict that decriminalised adultery, saying it would result in a spike in extramarital affairs. "If your faith is your faith, then my faith should also be my faith. Your (the government's) intentions are not pure... You can bring your own law, but we will not forfeit our religion," he declared. While the centre had held in court that retaining adultery as an offence was necessary to preserve the sanctity of marriage, it left the decision on decriminalising homosexuality to the judiciary's wisdom. Other opposition leaders questioned the manner in which the government wanted to pass the bill. Nationalist Congress Party leader Supriya Sule wanted to know why the government had taken the ordinance route when the bill should have ideally been sent to a select committee. "Instead of the Triple Talaq bill, the government should empower women through legislations on reservations and marital rape," she said. Samajwadi Party leader Dharmendra Yadav claimed that the BJP had come up with the bill for political purposes. "There was no need to bring in a separate law, given that the Supreme Court had already ruled that Triple Talaq is illegal," he said. ET Mohammed Basheer of the Indian Union Muslim League said personal laws are protected by Article 25 of the Constitution. "This legislation is ill-motivated and against our fundamental rights," he added. The revised bill was eventually passed after a five-hour debate in the Lok Sabha, amid a walkout by the Congress and the AIADMK.

"Why Target Triple Talaq But Support Homosexuality?": Asaduddin Owaisi To Centre

No clarity on Cabinet expansion For Telangana

Chief Minister keeps everyone guessing on when and how many The aspirants for Cabinet posts are clueless about the timing of the expansion of his Cabinet by Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao though he has declared that he would induct six to eight of them in first instance by December end and complete the full quota of 18 later. One assessment that is widely discussed in TRS circles is that the first batch of ministers would either be sworn in before January 4 or, in the alternative, it will only be after Sankranti because the interim period was not auspicious. The second batch of almost the same number of ministers would join only after Parliament elections. Home Minister Mohammed Mahmood Ali was sworn in along with Mr. Rao, marking the installation of the TRS government for second term. Sources said the expansion of Cabinet in the second essay was linked to Parliament elections as it was speculated that the Chief Minister might contest polls from Nalgonda to hand over the baton to his son K.T. Rama Rao and play a role in national politics. No cabinet post It was also speculated that Mr. Rama Rao who was recently appointed working president of TRS might not even be inducted into the Cabinet, reserving his place at the helm of the government straight away after Mr. Chandrasekhar Rao’s election to Parliament. In the event of Mr. Chandrasekhar Rao contesting from Nalgonda, the sitting MP Gutha Sukhender Reddy was likely to be made a Minister and the latter’s post as Chairman of State-level Farmers Coordination Committee, which was of the rank of Cabinet Minister handed over to a former minister in Congress government Ch. Mutyam Reddy who was already given such an assurance when he joined the TRS just before the December 7 elections. On the other hand, Mr. K.T. Rama Rao spent a full day in the TRS office here on Thursday as working president for the first time since his appointment. KTR in party role He will also be available in the office on Friday when he will hold a meeting of the 20 general secretaries of party to discuss various programmes. A few aspirants of place in Cabinet like Mr. Errabelli Dayakar Rao, Mr. V. Srinivas Goud, Mr. Puvvada Ajay Kumar, Mr. Bajireddy Goverdhan and Mr. Muthireddy Yadagiri Reddy met Mr. Rama Rao in TRS office. Sources added that Mr. Chandrasekhar Rao who will return from New Delhi on Friday might request Raj Bhavan to arrange swearing in of his Council of Ministers on an auspicious date as soon as he makes up his mind on a candidate as the Speaker. Everything else can follow because the formation of Cabinet and the first session of Assembly were linked to the election of Speaker since there were no takers for the post for superstitious beliefs. If Mr. Rao decides to bide time, the swearing in was expected only after Sankranthi.

AP New Cm

The Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh is the chief executive of the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. As per the Constitution of India, the Governor of Andhra Pradesh is the state's de jure head, but de facto executive authority rests with the chief minister. Following elections to the Andhra Pradesh Legislative Assembly, the governor usually invites the party (or coalition) with a majority of seats to form the government. The governor appoints the chief minister, whose council of ministers are collectively responsible to the assembly. Given that he has the confidence of the assembly, the chief minister's term is for five years and is subject to no term limits.[1] Andhra Pradesh was created in 1956 by the merger of the Telangana region of Hyderabad State into Andhra State. Two chief ministers each from the Indian National Congress party had served these predecessor states. The first Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh was Neelam Sanjiva Reddy, later the sixth President of India. Including him, 13 out of 17 chief ministers belonged to the Congress party. Among these P. V. Narasimha Rao, who went on to become the ninth Prime Minister of India. Three chief ministers were from the Telugu Desam Party, including N. Chandrababu Naidu the longest-serving Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh (over eleven years). Naidu also served as the chief minister after Telangana was officially carved out of Andhra Pradesh into a separate state. Y. S. Jaganmohan Reddy of the YSR Congress Party was sworn in as the chief minister after the 2019 Andhra Pradesh Legislative Assembly election.[2]

Knife Attack At Manchester Train Station On New Year's Eve

British counter-terrorism police were investigating a multiple stabbing in which the suspect reportedly shouted "Allah" at a Manchester railway station on New Year's Eve, officials said Tuesday. A man and a woman, both in their 50s, and a police officer were being treated for knife injuries following the stabbings on Monday evening at Manchester Victoria station in the northwestern English city. Witness Sam Clack, 38, a BBC radio producer, said he heard the suspect shouting "Allah" before and during the attack. He quoted the suspect as saying: "As long as you keep bombing other countries, this sort of shit is going to keep happening." The male suspect has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, Greater Manchester Police (GMP) said in a statement. The woman suffered injuries to her face and abdomen and the man was wounded in the abdomen, while a British Transport Police officer sustained a stab wound to the shoulder. Their injuries were described as serious but not life-threatening. The two members of the public were taken to hospital. The incident happened at around 8:50pm (2050 GMT), when many revellers in the city would have been enjoying New Year's Eve celebrations. 'Blood-curdling scream' Clack said: "I just heard this most blood-curdling scream and looked down the platform. "He came towards me. I looked down and saw he had a kitchen knife with a black handle with a good 12 inch (30-centimetre) blade. "It was just fear, pure fear." Clack said police officers used a stun gun and pepper spray before, "six or seven" officers jumped on the man. Clack said he heard the alleged knifeman shouting "Allah" during the attack. He added: "He shouted it before, he shouted it during it -- 'Allah'." A witness who gave her name as Rebekka told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "I heard the most blood-curdling scream I've ever heard and turned to see everyone running towards me. "I jumped off the tram track and started to run down the tram lines and hid behind some concrete slabs under one of the arches. "I was just really scared, I didn't know if I was going to die." Police 'open mind' Police declared the attack a "critical incident". GMP Assistant Chief Constable Rob Potts said the investigation was being led by counter-terrorism police and officers were keeping an "open mind". "Tonight's events will have understandably worried people but I need to stress that the incident is not ongoing, a man is in custody and there is currently no intelligence to suggest that there is any wider threat at this time," he said. "While we don't yet know the full circumstances and are keeping an open mind, officers from Counter Terror Policing North West are leading the investigation. "This is to ensure we have all the expertise available to us and progress our investigation as soon as we possibly can." The city's New Year celebrations went ahead in Albert Square despite the incident, with a firework display taking place as planned, though increased security was brought in. The city experienced a suicide attack in May 2017, when 22 people were killed and 139 wounded at a concert by the US singer Ariana Grande at the Manchester Arena.


Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma's Zero witnessed a "big drop" in its collection on Wednesday (Day 6), a Box Office India report stated. The Aanand L Rai-directed film garnered Rs. 4.5 crore (nett) on Day 6, pushing its grand total to Rs. 85.82 crore, the report added. "Zero took a big hit on day six post the Christmas holiday as it collected Rs. 4.50 crore (nett) approximately. The drop is over 50% from Monday and it means the film will struggle from here on," the Box Office India report stated. Zero had raked in Rs. 12.75 crore on Christmas holiday but its collections went down drastically thereafter. "The film will struggle in its second week as Day 6 is at low levels and it will be Friday which will tell where the film is going," the report added. Shah Rukh Khan plays the role of a vertically challenged man in Zero while Anushka Sharma plays a specially-abled scientist named Aafia. Katrina Kaif plays the role of a superstar named Babita Kumari. Zero mostly opened to lukewarm reviews with praises for Shah Rukh Khan's performance. Film critic Saibal Chatterjee in his review for NDTV gave Zero 2 stars out of 5. "Shah Rukh Khan cannot be faulted. He gives his hundred per cent to liven up Zero, but for a film running on empty that is only a zero-sum game. Anushka Sharma contorts her face and angles her lips to deliver her lines - Full marks to her for effort. Katrina, who inevitably makes her entry with an item number, tries her best to convey the angst of a public figure whose life is a series of mishaps," he wrote. Rohit Shetty's Simmba is all set to hit the screens this Friday and it will be interesting to witness if Ranveer Singh and Sara Ali Khan's film effects Zero's box office collection.

'NTR Kathanayakudu' review

NTR Kathanayakudu is a mixed bag, depending on which kaleidoscope you choose to watch the movie through. As a documentation of a great man's life, someone adored and revered, the movie ticks a lot of boxes. As a pure cinematic experience, the movie doesn't quite wrench your heart and neither does it have the goosebumps-evoking drama that anyone who has read or heard about NTR's life would come to expect. It feels like director Krish was equally conflicted - to show the man who would become god, or to show the god who was at one point, just a common man? The movie begins with NTR (Balakrishna) resigning from the Sub-Registrar office, tired of the corruption. His wife Basavatarakam (Vidya Balan) is adoringly encouraging when he wants to leave for Madras, to take up an invitation he had received from LV Prasad (Jisshu Sengupta is a scene-stealer), who mentors him to an extent. His first offer is from Subbarao. But neither HM Reddy nor Subbarao manage to keep their original word, due to bad finances, leading him to leave Madras in a fit, only for his good-samaritan attitude to stop him from boarding the train in a stroke of luck. Nevertheless, what stands out is his discipline and sense of self-esteem, qualities that make him the celestial figure he became eventually. He gets a brilliant offer from Nagi Reddy and lands a role as Thota Ramudu in Pataala Bhairavi, largely because of KV Reddy's obdurate belief in him. And the first real superstar in Telugu cinema is born or in GV Reddy's words, "the real first superstar on an Indian screen is born". NTR Kathanayakudu, the movie, blends two interesting dimensions of his charismatic persona - his love for cinema exceeded only by his love for the people, without discrimination. The movie highlights his role in collecting funds for the Rayalaseema famine. His passion and self-respect see him script a victorious path as an employee of Vijaya Vahini Studios. Much to Chakrapani and Nagi Reddy's chagrin, NTR bags the role of Krishna, probably the high point of the movie, introducing audiences to the times when NTR was viewed as an avatar himself. The movie also exults in Rama Rao's role in bringing alive the story of Ravana in Bhookailash (he had to stand unmoving for 20 hours so the ten heads could appear one by one on screen, a first of sorts for Indian cinema). NTR's professionalism shines through when he finishes a shooting (an unflinching attitude of taking everyone along and putting others first) despite the news of the loss of his son. The second half sows seeds for highlighting NTR, the national leader. It also picks up pace and builds several layers into the story. There is NTR, putting his fans and movies ahead of his life, during the Emergency, carrying his own movie prints to the distributors during curfew. There is the great NTR-ANR bromance, Sumanth doing really well to bring the camaraderie alive, especially the initiative of NTR ANR fund for cyclone relief, and the stern pride-driven decision to make Hyderabad the new home to Telugu cinema. There is NTR, the visionary who creates Dana Veera Soora Karna, playing three roles, while producing and directing the movie (as an answer to the challenge posed by younger stars like Krishna). There is a constant side-track, the bond between NTR and his younger brother, and producer for a lot of his movies, Trivikrama Rao. It also introduces the domestic dissatisfaction in NTR's family for Yamagola, for acting with a much younger woman actor. There is Harikrishna (Kalyan Ram) who pretty much follows NTR like a shadow. There are two ways of looking at the movie. One can't help but get nostalgic as the narrative gives a hat-tip, one by one, to the greats of Telugu cinema. From the long collars, aviators and bell-bottoms to hit movie references, the film gives NTR fans a walk down the memory lane. Balakrishna's uncanny resemblance in several shots, especially as the older NTR contemplating his entry into politics, not to mention in several roles like in Bobbili Puli and Vetagadu, makes the second half exhilarating. However, though he fits the bill perfectly in the latter half of the movie where NTR has matured as a statesman and has become a leader of the masses, for a fan, it is hard to really enjoy the early NTR film-career as enacted by Balakrishna. This, despite the obvious effort that has gone into it. It would have helped if the soundtrack had given us a little more than a layer of cottoned elevation hidden behind - like everything else - the intention to show how a mortal became a demigod. Comparisons to another biopic, Mahanati are obvious, given the music that the earlier movie had delivered, tracks which stayed with us for a long time. The other aspect of the movie is the way it develops the perception of the actual NTR people remember, a leader cherished by the masses, a leader who was made God by the masses and who was willing to turn into a mere mortal again to enter into the dirty world of politics. Chandrababu Naidu (Rana) and YSR also get mentions. The movie ends at the inception of the Telugu Desam Party. Krish does a great job in picking the right moments in the life of a demigod. A soft touch with Savitri's scene, a humane touch with an old lady, a feminist touch with the way he encouraged women, a thought for the foundation of various schemes he later envisaged - the makers have ensured that NTR is shown in an otherworldly aura. Vidya Balan is understated but brilliant, and so are actors who play important roles in his life, e.g. his brother's. While the movie does a fair job, and emotional moments are aplenty, one wonders if this is the best way in which the great NTR could be portrayed. The documentation was perfect but one can be sure there was a lot more about the man than the legendary tales we have already heard about him. It is also very noticeable that the movie is an altruistic vision - barring the Emergency and the comments about all south Indians being Madrasis (not to mention the strong anti-Congress stand), the movie rarely treads away from being politically correct. Where NTR Kathanayakudu scores is in upholding what many lovers of nostalgia would expect from the movie - reel conversations, idiosyncrasies of greats like Chakrapani and GV Reddy, old sets, a lot of trivia. Unlike in Mahanati, NTR doesn't start with how the actor was created. He was already fully-made! The director's constraints while making a movie on a figure like NTR with his own son playing the lead, and with even the politics and history of the state at stake, are obvious. These aren't exactly shortcomings but they stop the movie from developing a flair like Mahanati had. One needs to laud the art-direction/make-up/costumes for reproducing the period of NTR's stardom beautifully though. For true-blue NTR fans, the first part of this biopic is still a treat, and builds up nicely into Mahanayakudu, which would probably move on from the reel to real, a socio-political thriller.

Chartered accountancy is the core of all business, be it big or small. A chartered accountant’s work involves auditing, taxation, accounting and financial planning. It can be a very challenging and rewarding job. Career prospects after doing chartered accountancy are exciting. Chartered accountancy can be the first step to other rewarding careers in finance, investment consultancy and fund management. The Chartered Accountancy course is conducted by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India, which has its headquarters in New Delhi, 5 regional offices (Calcutta, Kanpur, Chennai, Mumbai and New Delhi) and 81 branches under these regional centres. Step-by-Step The qualifications for becoming a CA have changed over the years. Initially — and that was decades ago — one could think of becoming a CA only after finishing graduation and a candidate had to undergo five years of articleship training. In 1991-92, ICAI allowed candidates who had cleared their Plus Two examinations to appear for the Foundation Course of the CA programme. In October 2001, ICAI introduced PE-1 and PE-2 system of examinations in place of the Foundation and the Intermediate examinations. However, in 2006, ICAI revamped the system and launched CPT, IPCC and FC. The unique feature of the chartered accountancy is its curriculum, which is theoretical education with complementary practical training. A student would undergo theoretical education and practical training concurrently from the very beginning. This balanced approach helps the students to appreciate the underlying practical applications of the theoretical education scheme. Common Proficiency Test (CPT) CPT is an entry level test of four subjects i.e. Accounting, Mercantile Laws, General Economics and Quantitative Aptitude. Integrated Professional Competence Course (IPCC) This is first stage of CA curriculum wherein only working knowledge of core and allied subjects to accountancy profession is covered. The subjects of IPCC are classified into two groups which a student can study and appear in the examination group-wise or both the groups together. IPCC is designed to improve knowledge of accountancy linked to accounting standards to build strong foundation for developing knowledge of financial reporting at the final stage. The students update their knowledge of business communication, business strategies, taxes, information technology and audit. CA Final CA Final covers advanced application knowledge of core subjects like financial reporting, strategic financial management, advanced management accounting, advanced auditing and professional ethics and information systems control and audit. In addition, principles of e-governance, corporate and allied laws, international taxation and VAT are important features of the updated subject contents. Articleship The students after passing Group I of IPCC will register for Articleship for a period of three years with experienced CAs. Certain rules do apply - CAs with 16 years of experience and above can take on about 8 articles, those with less experience can train fewer articles and these teachers or 'Principals' as they are called, can be changed during the course of training. An agreement of training needs to be executed before it begins. During the training time, articles learn the technical details of the work and as time passes, they are given larger assignments with less supervision. All articled clerks are paid a stipend depending on their city's population. Start Early In today’s cut throat competitive world, it is advisable that a student starts planning right after class 10. For chartered accountancy, a student can register with the Board of Studies and prepare for entry level test while pursuing 10+2. It is better to take mathematics at this level. Students of commerce stream definitely have an advantage while pursuing this career. The latest scheme of CA is designed to encourage young talented students having aptitude for accounting education to make an early entry into the profession. Is it the Right Career for Me? It is generally believed that only students of commerce should pursue CA course. However, CA being a very practical course, the students from science and arts streams can equally benefit and make a successful career. Students of science and arts stream have to make extra efforts in order to understand some complex accounting nuances and have to get basic knowledge of various management topics. But it can be easily concluded that students of science and arts streams can be successful CAs, if they are ready to toil. What would it Cost Me? Unlike other professional courses, the fee for becoming a CA is very less, which is inclusive of the cost of study material.

Career in C.A

Chartered accountancy is the core of all business, be it big or small. A chartered accountant’s work involves auditing, taxation, accounting and financial planning. It can be a very challenging and rewarding job. Career prospects after doing chartered accountancy are exciting. Chartered accountancy can be the first step to other rewarding careers in finance, investment consultancy and fund management. The Chartered Accountancy course is conducted by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India, which has its headquarters in New Delhi, 5 regional offices (Calcutta, Kanpur, Chennai, Mumbai and New Delhi) and 81 branches under these regional centres. Step-by-Step The qualifications for becoming a CA have changed over the years. Initially — and that was decades ago — one could think of becoming a CA only after finishing graduation and a candidate had to undergo five years of articleship training. In 1991-92, ICAI allowed candidates who had cleared their Plus Two examinations to appear for the Foundation Course of the CA programme. In October 2001, ICAI introduced PE-1 and PE-2 system of examinations in place of the Foundation and the Intermediate examinations. However, in 2006, ICAI revamped the system and launched CPT, IPCC and FC. The unique feature of the chartered accountancy is its curriculum, which is theoretical education with complementary practical training. A student would undergo theoretical education and practical training concurrently from the very beginning. This balanced approach helps the students to appreciate the underlying practical applications of the theoretical education scheme. Common Proficiency Test (CPT) CPT is an entry level test of four subjects i.e. Accounting, Mercantile Laws, General Economics and Quantitative Aptitude. Integrated Professional Competence Course (IPCC) This is first stage of CA curriculum wherein only working knowledge of core and allied subjects to accountancy profession is covered. The subjects of IPCC are classified into two groups which a student can study and appear in the examination group-wise or both the groups together. IPCC is designed to improve knowledge of accountancy linked to accounting standards to build strong foundation for developing knowledge of financial reporting at the final stage. The students update their knowledge of business communication, business strategies, taxes, information technology and audit. CA Final CA Final covers advanced application knowledge of core subjects like financial reporting, strategic financial management, advanced management accounting, advanced auditing and professional ethics and information systems control and audit. In addition, principles of e-governance, corporate and allied laws, international taxation and VAT are important features of the updated subject contents. Articleship The students after passing Group I of IPCC will register for Articleship for a period of three years with experienced CAs. Certain rules do apply - CAs with 16 years of experience and above can take on about 8 articles, those with less experience can train fewer articles and these teachers or 'Principals' as they are called, can be changed during the course of training. An agreement of training needs to be executed before it begins. During the training time, articles learn the technical details of the work and as time passes, they are given larger assignments with less supervision. All articled clerks are paid a stipend depending on their city's population. Start Early In today’s cut throat competitive world, it is advisable that a student starts planning right after class 10. For chartered accountancy, a student can register with the Board of Studies and prepare for entry level test while pursuing 10+2. It is better to take mathematics at this level. Students of commerce stream definitely have an advantage while pursuing this career. The latest scheme of CA is designed to encourage young talented students having aptitude for accounting education to make an early entry into the profession. Is it the Right Career for Me? It is generally believed that only students of commerce should pursue CA course. However, CA being a very practical course, the students from science and arts streams can equally benefit and make a successful career. Students of science and arts stream have to make extra efforts in order to understand some complex accounting nuances and have to get basic knowledge of various management topics. But it can be easily concluded that students of science and arts streams can be successful CAs, if they are ready to toil. What would it Cost Me? Unlike other professional courses, the fee for becoming a CA is very less, which is inclusive of the cost of study material. For registering with IPPC you have to shell out Rs 9000 while the fee for CPT is Rs 6700. Funding/Scholarship There is not much scope for any scholarships while pursuing chartered accountancy.

2 Women Below 50 Enter Sabarimala Temple, A First After Court Ended Ban The women both in their early 40s, entered the Sabarimala temple early this morning, say police sources. Two women below 50 have created history by entering the Sabarimala temple in Kerala, which has been off-limits for women of menstrual age for decades and has kept it that way despite a Supreme Court order ending the restriction. The women both in their early 40s, entered the hilltop shrine early this morning, say police sources. The women started their climb around midnight and reached the temple after 3:45 am and left after praying to Lord Ayyappa. The women were accompanied by small group of police personnel in civil and uniform. The two women had tried to climb up to Sabarimala in the last week of December, but had been blocked by massive protests
Are you a heavy drinker? Take note. Besides alcohol taking a toll on your health in many ways, it may also trigger a long-lasting genetic change resulting in an even greater craving for alcohol, researchers including one of Indian-origin have warned. "We found that people who drink heavily may be changing their DNA in a way that makes them crave alcohol even more," said Dipak K Sarkar, Professor at Rutgers University in the US. "This may help explain why alcoholism is such a powerful addiction, and may one day contribute to new ways to treat alcoholism or help prevent at-risk people from becoming addicted," said Sarkar. For the study, researchers focused on two genes implicated in the control of drinking behaviour: PER2, which influences the body's biological clock, and POMC, which regulates our stress-response system. By comparing groups of moderate, binge and heavy drinkers, the team found that the two genes had changed in binge and heavy drinkers through an alcohol-influenced gene modification process called methylation, according to the findings, published in the journal Alcoholism: Clinical & Experimental Research. In addition, the binge and heavy drinkers also showed reductions in gene expression, or the rate at which these genes create proteins. These changes increased with greater alcohol intake. Also, in another experiment, the drinkers viewed stress-related, neutral or alcohol-related images. They were also shown containers of beer and subsequently tasted beer, and their motivation to drink was evaluated. Results showed that alcohol-fuelled changes in the genes of binge and heavy drinkers were associated with a greater desire for alcohol. The findings may eventually help researchers identify biomarkers -- measurable indicators such as proteins or modified genes -- that could predict an individual's risk for binge or heavy drinking, Sarkar noted. In 2016, more than three million people died from the harmful use of alcohol. More than three quarters of alcohol-caused deaths were among men. The harmful use of alcohol also caused 5.1 per cent of disease and injuries worldwide, according to the World Health Organisation.

The Supreme Court on Tuesday said that although the marriage between a Muslim man and Hindu woman is an irregular marriage, described as "fasid" in Mohamadan law, the children born out this wedlock are legitimate and have claim over the property of the father. "The marriage of a Muslim man with an idolater or fire­worshipper is neither a valid (sahih) nor a void (batil) marriage, but is merely an irregular (fasid) marriage. Any child born out of such wedlock (fasid marriage) is entitled to claim a share in his father's property," observed the bench of Justice N.V. Ramana and Justice Mohan M. Shantanagoudar in their judgment. Upholding an order of the trial court and that of the Kerala High Court, Justice Shantanagoudar speaking for the bench said: "It would not be out of place to emphasise at this juncture that since Hindus are idol worshippers, which includes worship of physical images/ statues through offering of flowers, adornment, etc., it is clear that the marriage of a Hindu female with a Muslim male is not a regular or valid (sahih) marriage, but merely an irregular (fasid) marriage." The top court said this upholding the plea by one Mohammed Salim. He was born to Mohammed Ilias and Valliamma, and court described him as their legitimate child. Having held that a child born out of Hindu mother and Muslim father is legitimate and has claim over the property of father, the court said: "The position that a marriage between a Hindu woman and Muslim man is merely irregular and the issue from such wedlock is legitimate has also been affirmed by various high courts."
