A day back, a Chennai based class 9 boy had stabbed his school-teacher to death. These incidents are alarming for the urban Indian society where mostly the families are nuclear and both parents are normally working. Kids need proper parental counselling during the early teenage. They are more into experimenting and less bothered about consequences of the act. Even schools should have professional counselling sessions, at least once a week. The growing impact of Television and movies leave kids curious about many things they are not aware of and hence it is the parents who need to be patiently counselling the kids.

How safe is Indian Railways for its passengers ?
8th February 2012 , Haryana– National Level Junior Wrestler , Lokesh Kumar is suffering from fractured backbone and multiple head injuries after being thrown out of moving Dadar Express train by 5 people. The incident took place between Ambala and Sonepat and the wrestler lied by the tracks for almost 12 hours before being noticed and admitted to the hospital by the locals. Reportedly, he was going to Gonda to participate in the selection camp for upcoming tournament in Thailand when this happened.
No arrests have been reported so far. It is astonishing that Yuvraj Singh, a cricketer, has the nation by his side after reports being revealed of he suffering from cancerous tumour though in first stage and news and controversies have been following since it was revealed in media and there lies another athlete of national level fighting for his life assaulted by anti-social elements while the culprits are free.
This is not for the first time this has happened . On April 13 ‘2011 Sonu Sinha , a national level volley-ball and football player was thrown out by robbers trying to snatch a gold chain from her neck. The incident happened in Padmavat Express, between Chenati and Bareilly stations,in Uttar Pradesh. The athlete lost her leg in the incident.
If citizens of national recognition are not safe in the trains of the country, think about commoners of the nation. These sufferers somehow made to the news as they are known to the nation. What about the common citizens ? Who knows if similar incidents take place every other day in the Indian Railways and the cases may be closed as accidental deaths ! This is an utter failure of Indian Railways and the Railway Police and a shame on their administration!
The Funny Winning Run Scored by India!
India registers its first win in the Commonwealth Tri-Series against Sri Lanka. In the 46th over , bowled by Mathews of Sri Lanka Ashwin hit the winning shot which was ideally going to make him lose his wicket as it was high up in the air, very close to the pitch, towards the off-sdie and had at least two Sri Lankan players beneath it . It was considerably a very easy high-catch for any player. However, there was a twist in the tale as both took similar decision. Malinga decided to leave the ball for Tharanga and vice versa and the ball fell in between while Ashwin and Jadeja completed the winning run. Ashwin could not believe the rescue like everyone watching the match and had a astonished smile on his face. Well, rarely do we get to see these childish follies in International matches. All in all, it was a happy and funny climax of the match for Indian Cricket fans.
Kamla Pasand labelled boundary ropes may attract a fine of upto $66000 on Cricket Australia by the Australian Federal Health Department. The advertisment of “Chaini” which is fancy-packed spit(tobacco) were visible in almost all the matches. The advertisment is a breach of 1992 Tobacco Advertising Ban Law. Kamla Pasand being a company which is also into manufacturing of chewing-tobacco hence legally the adverts should not have been entertained by Cricket Australia.
As per reports these ads were removed in the first test match between India and Australia following complaints about the ad against the 1992 tobacco advertising ban law. But they were back after the Indian High Commission reportedly assured the cricket board that the product was mouth-wash.
The most shocking part is when asked by Cricket Australia the ad was allegedly translated in English as “Kamla likes fragrant Chaini mouth freshener”.
Well, Law breakers and manupulators find their ways out in the country , some way or the other but this time the limit was extended to a foreign country and at the end it is Cricket Australia which is likely to suffer by paying the penalty fee.
