  1. Have you ever inspired a child to think outside the box and have them do something else for another person? I know this question is rather vague but in all seriousness, the children today are very impressionable and they only act or react on how people around them think, choose, behave and act. So, in order to make sure your child, or any child around you adopts the best of qualities in them, you have to be an example of something you want them to learn in the first place. We have a living example of that amidst us and we can learn a thing or two from her. Tunisha Khusroo Poacha, a 6-year-old, who'd seen her father donating clothes and food for the Maharashtra flood survivors, asked him why wasn't he collecting school bags, stationery and books for children too. At first, her father thought she was just saying so because she saw him donate a bunch of things, but later, he realised how serious she was about helping out children who'd lost an opportunity to complete their education, due to the floods. © The Better India Tunisha, from Nagpur, has always seen her father, Khushroo, support the needy through his NGO, Seva Kitchen. She is sensitised to issues that need humanitarian attention and help and hence, when her father helps with donations, she makes it a point to understand the larger cause at hand. When she saw him donate for the floods last year, she asked him why he wasn't doing anything for the children who were going to school. “I told her it was an oversight on my part and urged her to do something herself. She thought about it and proposed that she would donate schools bags to everyone,” Khusroo told The Better India in an exclusive interview. “My daddy gave them groceries and clothes. So I said why cannot I give them school bags?” Tunisha added, in the interview. When Tunisha and her father settled on donating school bags to the kids, her father asked her the exact number of bags she required to make the donation. Without hesitating, she picked 5,000 bags as her figure. Two months after that discussion, the six-year-old, with the help of her father, has managed to send 1000 bags to Goonj, an NGO that helps in disaster relief and management by supplying aid to the affected people and areas. Because of her efforts, low income government schools in Nagpur have received close to 1,800 bags. © The Better India Now, how the idea sprouted in a six-year-old's head to donate bags is another spectacular story! Some time ago, her uncle had gifted her a magic slate. While sitting and drawing on it one day, Tunisha asked her father, who was already helping out with donations, if there was a way to provide these magic slates for needy kids. Her father told her it would be difficult to make so many magic slate for the kids. She thought about an alternative and came up with 'The Bags of Kindness'. Now, people usually order these bags online, since they're virtually available now and the family helps as many kids as they can, through this initiative. © The Better India “I wish to give them water bottles and tiffin boxes after this", the class I student shared with The Better India. Imagine, a six-year-old's drive to help the needy has become her dream at such a young age. And she won't stop there. She will do bigger and brighter things to help them out, only because her father has been such an inspiration to her and that's the only way children today learn the good things in life!

  2. A North Korean mother faces possible jail time from the countryâs authoritarian regime after saving her two children from a devastating house fire, for allowing portraits of the countryâs dictators to burn. The fire broke out in a home shared by two families in Onsong County, North Hamgyong province - a hilly region of rice farms situated near the Chinese border. According to North Korean law, every household must hang portraits of past leaders Kim Il-Sung and Kim Jong-Il - a measure reinforced by regularly visiting inspectors. Failure to treat these portraits with the same reverence expected towards the leaders themselves is a serious crime. © Reuters; The images of the ex-leaders are so venerated, that even this bridegroom from Pyongyang has chosen to wear a badge featuring them on his wedding day. When the fire broke out, both sets of parents were away from home, and rushed back to save their families once they spotted smoke. In the process, one set of portraits was reduced to ashes. According to local newspaper Daily NK, the mother will have to face a lengthy prison sentence with hard labour if found guilty, while the investigation process will mean that she cannot tend to her children in the hospital nor obtain the antibiotics needed to treat their burns. © Reuters; North Korean high-school students sing and perform underneath the watchful eye of their ex-leaders. Furthermore, neighbours said that they were eager to help, but stayed away fearing that the woman could be charged with a political crime. Meanwhile, a farm labourer who saved the other familyâs portraits has been hailed as a hero - despite recently serving time for a violent crime. This isnât the first time fires and North Korean dictator-portraits have been in the news, however. In a 2015 interview, Jun Yoo-Sung, who fled the country in 2005, explained how North Koreans who rescue these portraits in fires and floods are regarded as heroes - especially if theyâre âmartyredâ in the process. © Reuters; Propaganda starts early for these North Korean kindergarteners. âWhen a house was set on fire, some child was found to have been burnt to death holding on to those portraits,' she said. âOf course, such incidents are used for North Korean propaganda.â Similarly, in 2012, a teenager drowned while trying to save her familyâs portraits in a flash-flood. She was posthumously Kim Jong-Il Youth Honor Award and her school was renamed in her memory. With images of the two leaders staring down from the walls at nearly every building, itâs no surprise that the country has developed a reputation for human rights violations and upholding a downright dystopian government.

  3. There is no dearth of policing in the country right now wherein every Tom, Dick and Harry has come to believe that their opinion is the Bible, and it gives them the right to go around shoving their stunted opinions down people's throats. Well, guess what all you pseudo-policemen, we have had enough of your verbal (and mental) diarrhea aimed at directing how we live our lives. © ANI Why this sudden surge of emotions you ask? Well get this. At a religious function being held in Begusarai recently, Union Minister and Bihar MP Giriraj Singh made a shocking comment when he said that convent-taught students who go abroad start eating beef because missionary schools don't imbibe Indian “sanskaar” in them. © BCCL Here's what he said exactly, "I say this because it has been seen that at schools run by missionaries, children from well-off families excel academically, go on to have successful careers... but when they go abroad they eat beef. Why? This is because we have not inculcated 'sanskaar' (tradition) in them.” Err, are you serious sir? © BCCL Not just that, the old man didn't stop until he suggested why teaching the Bhagavad Gita and Hanuman Chalisa should be made mandatory in private schools because obviously that's where we can find all the anti-nationals. It's appalling to watch these top ministers and public representatives make such drastic comments about what people eat and how it defines them. View the full article
  4. Angelina Jolie flies’ kids to Ethiopia, Zahara’s birthplace, for New YearAngelina Jolie, acclaimed Hollywood star, following her LA Christmas with family drama aside is now in Ethiopia to ring in New Year with her kids Zahara and Shiloh. The 44-year-old Maleficent star flew her kids to Ethiopia to visit her daughter Zahara’s home country where she was adopted back in 2005. The 14-year-old and her superstar mother also paid a visit to Ethiopia’s President Sahle-Work Zewde on December 30. The mother-daughter duo was a sight for sore eyes as they twinned in white dresses. The two were joined by Brangelina’s other daughter Shiloh, 13 as all three met the head of state and shared hugs and warm greetings. A source revealed to HollywoodLife why the Salt actor made the trip to Ethiopia after 15 years: “Angelina Jolie has taken the kids on a trip to Ethiopia, they left a couple of days ago. It’s where Zahara was born, so it’s important to Angelina that they keep the connection strong.” “They’ll be doing sightseeing and getting to know more about her beautiful birth country,” the grapevine added.
  5. Angelina Jolie heads out with kids for Christmas shopping sans Brad PittAngelina Jolie took her twins, Knox and Vivienne, out for last-minute Christmas shopping, however, sans ex-husband Brad Pitt. While the actress made special arrangements for Pitt to stay in Los Angeles to be able to spend Christmas together with their kids, he gave the actual preps a miss. A source said: “They will share time with the kids equally over Christmas, that is how they did it last year and this year will be no different.” While she took her kids out, Jolie was clad in an untucked white button-down shirt with a black skirt and a black duster jacket, which she with a pair of gold-framed aviators and some high-heeled black boots. She even passed a warm smile to the paps as they clicked her while she headed towards her car.
  6. If you have kids, you better make sure you get their Christmas presents on time or else you're going to have yourself a very expensive Christmas. That's what happened to a mother in Michigan, USA, and while the situation is rather funny, it hurts us to know she spent $700 (INR 40,000) on presents, unknowingly. © Veronica Estell Facebook So here's what happened. Two kids from Michigan got super excited and ordered themselves gifts worth Rs 40,000 through Alexa, the home entertainment system. At first their mother, Veronica Estell, thought some generous soul has gifted the box full of toys to the kids, but to her disappointment, she soon discovered that the kids used her credit card to order toys for themselves. I can't fathom if the kids are actually really intelligent or just plain sadistic and mischievous. Obviously, Veronica confronted the kids and documented her confrontation in the form of a video which she shared on Facebook. The kids obviously couldn't wait any longer for Santa and took the initiative to buy themselves gifts really slyly, might I add. People really loved how funny this incident was, and their reaction to Veronica's story says it all. © Facebook © Facebook Kids these days are really smart. I mean, if a one-year-old can operate a mobile phone and find music on the phone to cheer them up, then I am pretty sure older kids can order really expensive gifts using their parents credit card. So, if you have any kids around, maybe hide your credit cards and ask Alexa to never obey them. View the full article
  7. 'Tis the season to be merry and Virat Kohli is doing his part in spreading the Christmas cheer. Recently, he dressed up as Santa Clause and surprised children at a shelter home in Kolkata. The incredible gesture was organised by Star Sports and its video is the most heartwarming thing ever. The smiles on every kid's faces after receiving the gifts they wanted is such a precious thing. Moreover, the big reveal of all of them meeting Virat Kohli was so wholesome. Watch @imVKohli dress up as ð and bring a little Christmas cheer to the kids who cheer our sportspersons on, all year long!

  8. Kim Kardashian criticized for photoshopping her kids in Christmas card. Photo: cosmopolitanFashion mongol Kim Kardashian recently landed herself in hot waters over allegedly using Photoshop in order to edit pictures of her children in her 2019 Christmas card. Fans were quick to point out in the comment section it was "close to impossible" to have all of her four children pose still for a picture and have them "acting right and still."In the photo, Kardashian and her children can be seen sitting on the stairs while her husband Kanye West had Chicago West in her arms. Chicago and Psalm donned the same grey jumpsuit, each cuddled up in their parents arms. The photo titled "The West Family Christmas Card 2019" had fans saying, "Who photoshopped north in? The lighting looks... different."Another commented, "I was looking for this comment, this deff looks photoshopped." One user inquired, "Why all the kids look like stickers?"Others stated, "I think they are photoshopped lol no joke if you look closer you can tell." One fan was extremely certain at his deduction and went onto say, "This is 100% an edited photo I'm surprised more people haven't said this."
  9. Slowly but steadily, Esports is getting some well-deserved attention. And what's interesting is that it's not just the adults who are making it big in Esports these days, as even kids are making a big name for themselves by playing games like Fortnite and PUBG. You remember the kid who won $4 million by winning the Fortnite World Cup, right? Well, now, we're looking at a team of kids from Indonesia who walked away with a hefty cash prize by winning the PUBG Mobile Club Open Fall Split Global. Yes, Team Bigetron RA from Indonesia just won the tournament and walked away with a whopping $180,000, which roughly translates to about Rs 1.29 Crore. Let that sink in for a moment. You just can't keep them down! @realbigetron takes their 5th(!) Chicken Dinner of the #PMCO2019 Fall Split Global Finals sponsored by Vivo in Round 12. Is a 6th possible? https://t.co/2LpM7xrJDa pic.twitter.com/ZeTqqhD1m3 — PUBG MOBILE (@PUBGMOBILE) December 1, 2019 The runner-up also won $90,000 which is also not a small amount. It roughly translates to about Rs 65 Lakh. That being said, winning such a tournament isn't an easy thing to pull off. It takes a lot of practice since you'll essentially be competing with the best teams out there. India's Team SouL also competed in a different split, but they couldn't get through to the finals. Team SouL participated this year as well, but they only managed to put a score of 103 on the board after 16 matches, whereas the winning team had 303. Nonetheless, we're incredibly proud of the team and we hope they'll win it next time. The overall standings after 16 grueling matches in 3 intense days for the #PMCO2019 Fall Split Global Finals, sponsored by #Vivo! You have your Top 3 representing teams, @TOP_Esports_ & @MEGAEsportsSEA with @realbigetron claiming the World Championship in 1st place! #BeTheOne pic.twitter.com/NDHRBFIqhP — PUBG MOBILE Esports (@EsportsPUBGM) December 1, 2019 But coming back to the Esports part, we think it's high time people start taking Esports seriously. There's a huge scope in this field and since it's still evolving, there's a lot of room for growth. It makes us really happy to see these young talents getting all the attention they deserve. We really hope more parents will come across such achievements and let their kid pursue a future in gaming, instead of making them feel bad for gaming. View the full article
  10. Australian cricketer Will Pucovski has shown that he belongs in the highly challenging domestic cricket circuit that the players have Down Under. Born in 1998, the top-order batsman has 18 first-class matches and 12 List A games and is tipped as the future of Aussie cricket. Currently playing for Victoria in a Sheffield Shield contest against New South Wales, Pucovski has shown elite-level professionalism and is playing with the kind of focus even some of the veterans of the game also fail to achieve after years of dedication. While he stands on the pitch like a concrete wall scoring at his own pace, with utmost patience, the bowlers seemed to have found another way of forcing him to lose his game, by hitting him right where it hurts the most! View this post on Instagram Not once, not twice, but thrice! It's been tough going for Will Pucovski today ð¥ A post shared by cricket.com.au (@cricketcomau) on Nov 30, 2019 at 5:50pm PST Not once, not twice but THREE TIMES did the poor man get smacked right in the nuts followed by an expression which can best be put in words as, “why God, why!” Now if you have ever shared Pucovski's pain, you'd understand and empathise with the poor lad but Twitter users, as usual, have been ruthlessly hilarious with their comments and you can't help but crack a smile: No ball. — Stylez (@Styletix) December 1, 2019 The best part is the physio's name 'Adcock' ð — Sandy Lanceley (@sandylanceley) December 1, 2019 pic.twitter.com/UFywPDKuFr — Dr M Amir Bhat (@DrMAmirBhat1) December 1, 2019 Ooft! I felt that in Glasgow! ð« — Fraser Middleton (@FraserMiddleto8) December 1, 2019 But credit to Pucovski for holding his own (no pun intended) against the stormy deliveries by the New South Wales bowlers, as he played through the pain and made 82 runs in a staggering 257 balls. He helped his side make a strong comeback after their opponents scored a respectable 294 in the first innings. Pucovski went down in the 105th over as Victoria trailed by 12 runs.

  12. Before we send you on a trip down memory lane, let's refresh your childhood memories with a quick game that we loved and hated with equal passion, as long as we got the answers right. So, solve this riddle for us, will you? What looks like the shittiest place to be when you're actually in it, but makes you crave for a revisit as soon as you move out? It's the most liberating part of our existence, though nobody really realises it until it's too late. Our most cherished memories feature this part of the journey, and the urge to recreate and relive them grows stronger with every candle we add to our birthday cake. Eventually, we get to relive all of it through someone else. What is it? Answer at the end of this article. While you rake your grey cells for an answer, let's continue with the much-awaited, nostalgia-ridden trip featuring 10 iconic goodies from the 90s that millennials will probably never see again: 1. Big Babol, Boomer, Chiclets © Quora The real king of chewing gum that was introduced to us as kids. We competed to see who could make the biggest gum balloon and went about poppin' ours till we made one worthy of flaunting. 2. The Toy Gun That Felt Real © Quora As dubious as the toy seemed, what fun it used to be to load em' up and scare the shit out of unsuspecting victims. 3. TAZOssssss © Pinterest 90s kids are known to have mountain loads of tazos that made for the most reliable weapon when trying to settle matters between siblings and even friends at times. 4. Cassettes © Reddit Let's admit it, a certain joy was experienced in putting these nasty objects in place every time you wished to fix the tape or rewind it. 5. Coffee Bite (Original) © Facebook - Coffee Bite Lovers Perhaps the only candy out there that resembled the real deal and allowed us to carry the taste of coffee in our pockets. 6. Poppins © YouTube The good ol' coloured candies with flavours that ranged from fruits to berries and whatnot, really made for a great catch when it came to changing the colour of our tongue. 7. Super Mario Bros Arcade Game © Reddit The Super Mario game is part of almost every millennials' childhood in India, and happens to have given some eternal memories as we tried and failed, tried yet again and failed and tried all over again until we succeeded to save Princess Toadstool from Bowser's clutches. Ah...what fun that was. 8. Walkman - Music To Our Ears, Literally! © Pinterest If you haven't flaunted one these during your time, you really missed out on a different kind of high. These used to be the pride of our little treasures that we accumulated as kids, and the best part was that everything sounded good on a Walkman. 9. Postal Letters & Postcards © Blogs(Dot)sjw(dot)com The very method of writing a postcard or a postal letter seemed so curious, and put together with those quirky looking stamps, we kept trying to get our hands on them as often as possible. 10. Campa © Guruprasad(dot)net Even though the drink was called Campa, somehow, desi peeps ended up renaming it Campa Cola regardless of the flavour they opted for. But no matter the name or flavour was, we loved how it tasted. Answer: Our childhood. View the full article
  13. It would be fair to assume that almost all of us grew up watching Scooby-Doo and well, we're all about to get very very nostalgic. The first trailer for Scoob! is here and it was the entire gang as adorable little babies. While the entire trailer is there to make us feel nostalgic, the best part is how Scooby-Doo and Shaggy actually met and became BFFs. Fun fact: Scooby-Doo was named after the Scooby snacks. It also shows teenaged Shaggy and his best buddy trick-or-treating and meeting Fred, Daphne and Velma, completing the gang. All of them are back to do what they do best - solve mysteries. Moreover, the movie has brought together some great actors to voice these iconic characters. From Zac Efron to Amanda Seyfried to Gina Rodrigez to even Mark Wahlberg, there are very diverse and brilliant actors lending their voices to the main characters. Here's the trailer: While some people have a few issues with Scoob!, people are mostly very excited about it and can't wait to relive their childhood. scooby doo will forever be the classic, hell yeah my 18 year old ass will go to the cinema and watch this #SCOOB pic.twitter.com/FV0jI5WCaF — yaffa (@aweyaffa) November 11, 2019 Yep, they look like twins.

Character designs are great, animation looks decent - but I hate how they've tried to make Scooby actually talk properly in recent years, the voice of Shaggy isn't right, the origin story looks dull and uninteresting...not sold. — Jim Caddick (@Caddicarus) November 11, 2019 Adorable little babies.

  14. Gaming, especially online gaming, is on the rise and so is the fear of increasing gaming addiction. Although gaming addiction concerns are not limited to just China, it's believed to be home to a constantly exploding number of gamers, thanks to the proliferation of massively popular MMOs and shooter titles. China is the birthplace of some of the biggest gaming corporations like Tencent, Blizzard/ Activision, and the country is projected to have more PC players than the citizens of the United States within the next few years. So, some new rules are being put in place to prevent gaming addiction. © Reuters According to the new rules that have been put forth by the Chinese government, kids under the age of 18 will not be able to play online video games after 10 PM at night. Yes, there's a curfew on gaming now and kids are now banned from playing online video games from 10 PM to 8 AM in the morning. Additionally, they'll also be restricted to 90 minutes of gaming on weekdays and up to three hours on weekends and holidays. The government has also imposed spending limits for minors on gaming. Gamers from 8 to 16 years can only spend up to 200 yuan which is roughly Rs 2,000 per month. And gamers from 16 to 18 years can spend up to 400 yuan which is roughly Rs 4,000. That's like restricting them from buying one video game a month. © Reuters The new guidelines will apply universally to all online gaming platforms operating in China. According to BBC, the administration will work with law enforcement to create a unified identification system that these platforms can use to ID and verify the gamers. It sounds like an obvious thing to do, but we wonder if steps like this are really necessary. Yes, gaming addiction is indeed a real thing now, at least according to WHO, but it can also be controlled very effectively without having to take extreme steps like this. In fact, gaming addiction has been a topic of discussion in countries like India as well due to the arrival of games like PUBG Mobile, but we doubt if it's necessary to ban people from playing at any given time and make it a punishable offense.

  16. While growing up, we learnt some basic and fundamental manners in school which are still engrained deep within our psyche. More than manners, the values we were taught went a long way and sometimes, they got infused in us through autopilot conditioning. For example, respecting those who are elderly, helping others in need, being honest, so on and so forth. But the thing with teaching these values in school was, there was no testing ground for them there. Our real test was always in the real world when we started growing up, post-school and applying these lessons in values and manners in the outside world. © Livemint This school in Tamil Nadu, though, wants to test the lesson and values it teaches its students in school and hence, it conducted a rather unique social experiment. In a bid to test how honest, sincere and value-imbibing the students are in this Panchayat Union school in Pudukkottai, Tamil Nadu, the staff set up an 'Honesty Store', to test kids on their sincerity, through the most practical way ever. The Honesty Store is a stationery shop which works on the principle of free will. The students can come to pick any item of stationery like books, pencils, erasers etc. and drop an amount for whatever they've purchased in a box placed there. This way, the student learns a good lesson in honesty, if he or she picks out. This concept was first perceived by Mekela, a math teacher in the same school. There is no one present at the store to monitor payments and so, children are left on their own discretion to pay, teaching them an erstwhile lesson in honesty and basic civil responsibility. © Edexlive "The main idea behind the 'Honesty store' is to teach children life-orientated lessons. We want the children to be self-aware and honest" said Mekela in an interview with a popular publication. Even though teaching them to be honest and responsible is through an experiment, the parents can actually see a stark difference in the kids' mannerisms towards social responsibility and being more honest. "Many times, students come and ask for particular items, which are not sold in their villages. In those cases, we purchase whatever is required. Every month we sell items for anywhere between Rs 1000-1200 at least,", said S Baskaran, an English teacher in school. © Amar Ujala The concept of 'pay what you will' is not a new one. It's an ardent way to ensure the people realise the value of the services they've endured. It first started in Auroville, Tamil Nadu, a community space where people got together to build a sustainable lifestyle. Every coffee shop and restaurant at the place has a box where you can put in any amount, if you liked the service. Even though that's not a social experiment but is a way to enhance gratitude, this school in Tamil Nadu has definitely taken it a notch up and made it into an experiment. The kids actually use the money box wisely and put in a sum of whatever they think the product is worth, and never take anything for free. “They make sure to speak the truth and we are happy about it. A little act of honesty can help shape their career drastically,” parent of a Class VI student told a popular publication in an interview. © The Hindu The school has a strength of about 126 students, currently, and the program is about a year old and still running successfully. We feel it should be implemented in more schools, especially schools in most cosmopolitan cities of India. View the full article
  17. Most actors in Bollywood have an impressive sneakers collection. This is possible with multiple brand associations, sourcing and sometimes even a genuine interest in collecting sneakers. Whatever the reason may be, as long as we get to spot really cool ones regularly, we really don't mind. For instance, Ayushmann Khurrana, recently, for the promotion of his film Bala (which is going to release on 7 November 2019) wore an outfit that is definitely worth talking about. Ayushmann wore a bright red puffer bomber by Onitsuka Tiger, beneath which he wore a white t-shirt by Fila. And to complete this look, he paired it with sneakers in red-black colours by Louboutin. This stellar outfit is courtesy of his stylist Isha Bhansali. Here, take a look. (C) Isha Bhansali (c) Isha Bhansali But what's fascinating about the outfit is the fact that his chunky sneakers by Louboutin are called Kiddo Orlato and are priced at $850 which comes to around Rs 60,000. The label's inspiration for the sneakers comes from children's school sneakers that have Velcro attached to them because they don't know how to properly tie their laces. (c) Isha Bhansali In fact, not just one, this silhouette has three velcro straps instead of the laces. Along with this, they're also mounted on a white rubber sole and are crafted in beehive-embossed patent leather. So it looks like he's practically wearing children's sneakers. It really isn't a surprise that Ayushmann Khurrana is experimenting with out-of-the-box aesthetics with his outfits lately, especially at a time when one of his most unconventional films, Bala is about to release. Both onscreen and offscreen, the 34-year-old actor has time and again proven that he isn't afraid to experiment with newer and fresher trends, which also clearly reflects in his sartorial choices in life.

  18. A cop has become the hero of Rajasthan's Churu district by building a school that he runs for homeless children. The 'Apni Pathshala' school is built near the women's police station at the district's headquarters. Dharamveer Jakhar started with a mission to make homeless children study instead of begging. The brainchild behind the school is for the students to contribute to nation-building someday. © Dharamveer Jakhar Facebook Dharamveer found these kids near the station premises where they used to beg. According to The New Indian Express, Dharamveer said, “When I talked to these kids they told me they don't have parents or any other relatives. Initially, I thought they must be lying but I went to their slums and learned that they were telling the truth. I felt if I don't help them they will waste their entire life begging and started teaching them for an hour every day.” Dharamveer takes the help of two women constables and a few young volunteers who teach at the school. The school has around 450 students today. This wasn't an overnight achievement, it took them four years to reach this far. “We have had more than 450 children study at the school. We got 200 students admitted to government schools and around 90 are studying in classes VI-VIII. We maintain constant communication with them so that they can continue their studies uninterrupted", he said. A van gets students to school and later drops them to the slums. From food to stationery to school uniform, these things are provided free of cost to the students. © Dharamveer Jakhar Facebook "There are many families who come from UP and Bihar to work here. We have motivated their children to study and not to stop once they go back to their native lands. Some children have been allowed to collect garbage as their parents won't allow them to come otherwise. So we decided to let them do it after school. This way at least they get to come," the policeman added. The monthly expenses of school are around Rs 1.5 lakhs and the state government isn't helping much. So, the school depends on campaigns organised by Facebook groups and social media portals. © Dharamveer Jakhar Facebook "With the help of the police, society, and the education department, we can change their lives. These children should have special schools and separate staff to take care of them. They will never come to school on their own and there should be people dedicated to bringing them out of their miseries," he added. The cop believes that government bodies can help these children, even though the government hasn't been able to do much in helping Dharamveer. View the full article
  19. The wonderful and magical power that parents possess, lies in their selfless love and their acceptance of us, the way we are. A good parent is not someone who just splurges on you, but is someone who lets you believe that they are not judgemental of the primitive choices you make in your life. Howie Dittman, a 44-year-old man living in Pittsburgh is also a parent, but last week, he ended up being the internet's favourite dad. When Howie found out about a pride parade in Pittsburgh and saw his friend volunteering to give 'mom hugs', he decided to do something similar and participated in the parade, offering 'dad hugs' to the kids who were rejected by their own families. He shared his experience and how impactful a small gesture can be. "Imagine that, parents. Imagine that your child feels SO LOST FROM YOU that they sink into the arms of a complete stranger and sob endlessly just because that stranger is wearing a shirt offering hugs from a dad," he wrote. These pictures of Mr Dittman went viral and its been touching and melting very heart on the internet since then. would be remiss if i did not give a shout out to the huge pflag dad marching in the denver pride parade wearing a FREE DAD HUGS shirt, who joyfully gave me my first big, encompassing, father's day dad hug in five entire years — casey mcquiston â¤ï¸ð ON TOUR! (@casey_mcquiston) June 17, 2019 Howie Dittman. Everyday hero. â¤https://t.co/lV8hZA9lqk — rebecca (@mamabexx) June 13, 2019 So many people reached out to Howie, thanking him and expressing their love and gratitude, as these pictures spark pure joy! Kindness and love cost you nothing because the best things in the world are not actually bought! Love comes in every shade and as humans, judging anyone, especially the people we love, for who they decide to love is unfair. This dad is 'dad goals' in the truest sense.
  20. Bihar is currently undergoing a massive outbreak of Acute Encephalitis Syndrome (AES) that has led to the death of over 100 children in the state in the past two weeks. The situation was critical and there was a dire need for taking rapid action to deal with the epidemic and have as much damage control as possible. In order to figure out a plan of action quickly, Union Health Minister Dr. Harsh Vardhan carried out a press meet along with Ashwini Kumar Choubey, Minister Of State for Health and Family Welfare and Bihar's Health Minister, Mangal in Muzaffarpur on Sunday. However, instead of showing their concerns towards the loss of life for the young infants of the state, the Health Minister seemed more interested in the ICC World Cup match between India and Pakistan. Check out the shocking video shared by the official Twitter handle on ANI: #WATCH Bihar Health Minister Mangal Pandey asks for latest cricket score during State Health Department meeting over Muzaffarpur Acute Encephalitis Syndrome (AES) deaths. (16.6.19) pic.twitter.com/EVenx5CB6G — ANI (@ANI) June 17, 2019 “Kitna wicket hua tha?” asked the politician wishing to know how many wickets had fallen in the game. This kind of insensitivity shown by the representative towards his people, especially during such a crisis led to the opposition demanding an immediate resignation from Pandey. "Pandey was more interested in knowing the cricket score while Harsh Vardhan was telling mediapersons on they plans to alleviate the situation arising from the encephalitis outbreak," IANS quoted RJD leader Ram Chandra Purve. The unfortunate and heartbreaking incident comes after Minister Of State for Health and Family Welfare Ashwini Kumar Choubey was being extensively criticised for sleeping at another press conference on the mass outbreak to which he had replied by saying that he was indulged in “deep thought” and was not asleep. Twitter is livid with the inconsiderate behaviour of the ministers and their reactions are completely justified: They all should be sacked with immediate effect by Modi. — The Baba (@whateverbaba) June 17, 2019 Score: #IndiaVsPakistan in #Bihar ð #AcuteEncephalitisSyndrome crosses the 100 mark as Pakistan failed to control the outbreak in #Muzaffarpur ðWhose negligence?

  21. Jason Momoa is not just admired for his choice of roles, his insane body and chiselled features, but also for the way he thinks about his family, cultural values and his expression of love for his wife and kids. The 'Game Of Thrones' actor celebrated Father's Day yesterday with his kids and unlike most people, his celebrations did not include going out for dinner or running for a swim but actually building a Harley-Davidson bike with his family heirlooms in the company of his kids. He spoke about how he grew up without a dad and therefore, being a wonderful parent to his kids was his top priority and the idea was to build something together which could be a memory they all share. “I'm a husband and a father and it is the greatest honour of my life. It has taken three decades in the making [to build the bike] – the longest dream I have ever held onto. And now, the best part is I get to share that dream with my children and the people that I love. I'm 40 [Jason turns 40 on August 1], and I finally built a bike. There are people who come into our lives like guiding spirits, providing the missing lesson we need. Teachers become friends, and friends become family”, Jason says, proving he is truly the 'moon of our moon'. © YouTube He fulfilled his own dream of building a bike with his kids and that proves that the best things in life cannot be bought. So, build more memories, spend more time with your parents, because tomorrow is not promised and today is all we have.

  23. There is something special about our men in green, won't you agree? Dressed in their crisp camo-green uniforms, with stand-out medals and stripes pinned over their proud, selfless heart evokes a kind of respect and admiration that is exclusively reserved for our greatest warriors who make up our motherland's most formidable protectors. However, given the sort of picture our mind paints when we say “army dad”, it wouldn't be wrong to state that somehow, certain aspects from their field of work often tends to rub onto the image of “army dads”. For years now, Indian television has fed its audience with a certain image of an army dad - someone who is strong yet stern, doesn't give in to strong emotions easily, is a man of few words, lives by the book and treats the world as his oyster. (c) Getty Images But, surely you don't believe all of that to be true, right? There's got to be an affectionate father's heart thrumming quietly but firmly, under that tough shell of a persona they put on everytime they don their uniforms. Like any other father on this planet, their hearts brim with love, pride, hopes and dreams for their children. Like most father's, army dads are quick to make sacrifices too but theirs always weighs heavier because it comes easily not only for their kids but also for their motherland. (c) Getty Images Army dads don't get to be around their family and children as often as they'd like, or for as long as they'd want. Duty beckons them and somehow their country always 'seems' to surpass the children to grab the top spot. Still, that never stops them from going all out looking out for them as fiercely as their motherland. There is a lot we are unaware of when it comes to a father's love towards his child, and an army dad is somehow a step ahead even here because there is so little we get to know about their personal lives. (c) Getty Images This Father's Day, we caught up with army dads and asked them to tell us their side of the story, and throw some light on the kind of relationship they share with their children given their demanding job and busy schedules. When we asked Colonel Khan Mahmood how being in the Army impacted his relationship with his kids, he told us that, “With great pride, I state that I am a third generation Army Officer. My father Late Col SA Khan has tutored me to spend quality time whenever possible. With my wife's support the impact on the relationship with both my sons has been excellent!” (c) Twitter Yet, Col Khan didn't shy away from admitting that he did miss out on some significant milestones in his sons' lives that he wishes he could make up for. Talking about it he said, “Life is certainly not a bed of roses.Who knows it better than a man proudly donning the Olive Green. I have missed out on various precious moments. Won't say 'regret' but yes I would have loved to see both my sons taking their 'first step' towards progress.” However, regardless of it all, when Col Khan shared his favourite Father's Day memory it left us beaming, just like him. He said, “For our generation 'Father's Day' is everyday. The day my 3-year-old elder son gave me a Father's Day card and wished me in the most adorable style, made me promise to try to be the best father to my sons, and best son to my father.” That isn't all, here is what other Army Dads told us about their special bonds with their children.

  24. Coming from a small village of Kheri Kalan in the suburb of Faridabad, Sargar 'The Sher' Narwat is undefeated in the super welterweight category and boasts a record of 9 wins, 0 losses and 1 draw with a knockout rate of 30%. One to consider winning and losing is part of the game Narwat is a believer of continuous training and constantly putting in his best effort in practice. “It is only because of my dedication and passion for boxing that I am undefeated right now,” he says. In his journey to national and eventually international glory, Narwat has received a lot of support from nation, especially ever since one of his amateur bouts went viral on social media and people began to take notice of the pugilist. “I considered myself to be extremely lucky to have the support of so many boxing fans of India. While it adds a lot of pressure on me to perform better inside the ring, it also gives me great honour to represent my country in grand, international events.” View this post on Instagram When you win, say nothing, when you lose, say less.” @megaboxing_in @royalsportspromotions @nitesh_narwat @lzpromotions @ankitnarwatphotography @siddhantkapoor_photography #theshernarwat #sagarnarwatboxer #india #crossfit #crossfitboys #backontrack #crazyfrmypassion #usaboxing #bigaim #hardwork #fitnessmotivation #fitnessmodel #athlete #strength #beliveinhardwork #boxingtraning #boxinglegend #boxinghype #boxeo #boxinglife #boxinggym #knockout #sport #ko #taekwondo #kickboxing #jiujitsu #muaythai #fightnight A post shared by Sagar Narwat ð®ð³ (@sagarnarwatboxer) on May 5, 2019 at 7:18am PDT Ever since turning pro, Narwat has played in several Boxing leagues in India, Super Boxing League being one of his first. “During my tenure with SBL, one of my fights was against a great Army boxer who had won a lot of professional matches in the past while I was a complete nobody at the time,” Narwat recalls. After dodging his massive swings and throwing timely punches while constantly trying to calm my nerves, I was finally able to beat him. That is when I got the name 'The Sher'”. “I love this name that the boxing brethren has given me and I hope to continue to do justice to it in the future.” Currently, Narwat is under contract with Mega Boxing, India's first Professional Boxing Intellectual Property, which is recognised by the World Boxing Organization (WBO) with an aim to position professional boxing as a premium sporting entertainment entity and under the guidance of the world class coaching the organisation provides, is training to contest for the World Championship title in super welterweight category that currently rests with Mexico's Jaime Munguia.

Kids in my village have always wanted to box. Back when I was their age, we have no boxing rings or academies. We used to get together at any 'chowki' and begin sparring. If under such untrained conditions, boxers from Kheri Kalan have gone to do so well.

Even if I do not have a match scheduled for the next day or the next week, my training continues with the same intensity.” He finally urges the upcoming boxers to never settle. “If you've won a match, great. Move on to the next one where the stakes are higher. People get way too relaxed after winning a bout. they become casual about their training, the food they eat. Never be satisfied with what you have achieved till now, always reach for the stars.”
  25. Being a parent, who brings about gender-neutrality when their child is growing up, is a very essential part of their upbringing. What is gender-neutrality when it comes to raising kids today? It's when parents raise their kids in an environment which does not force any preconceived gender norms upon them to adhere to. While you may think gender norms are subjective and some are more stereotyped than the others, the ardent belief that men should be raised a particular way, which distinguishes them for being men in the first place, is what's problematic in society. (c)Pintrest Today, there is a need for mothers and fathers to raise their children in a gender-neutral environment where discouraging them to pick up a few activities just because it doesn't fit a particular gender role should be overlooked and processed differently. It's problematic to feed men with the notion that it's not okay to be emotional or too sensitive or tell women their place is in the kitchen or as homemakers. It's a choice that both the parents have to give their children to make and follow, respectively. (c)Pintrest Most men today are raised by their mothers because it's a basic bond and any mother who's raising a child knows how to do it best. Mothers are leaning towards gender-neutral parenting and this Mother's Day, we gathered 5 men who spoke about gender-neutral things their mothers taught them, while they were growing up: (1) It's Absolutely Okay To Show Emotions! "I was always raised believing if you have a feeling or an emotion, it's absolutely okay to share it and show it. Hiding behind a garb of manliness and denying your own emotion can be quite toxic and dissatisfying. My mother, in fact, always encouraged me to emote when I was going through a tough time rather than walking out of a room because it was difficult to process a particular emotion. I am very thankful for that because I recognise emotions very easily, not just in me and I help people open up and process them. Especially for my son, who is 10." Akshay Luthra, 38, Marketing Consultant. (c)Pintrest (2) Stay-At-Home Dads Shouldn't Be Looked Down Upon "I am stay-at-home father, which means my wife got promoted last year and couldn't find the time to look after the kids round the clock. I have two children and their upbringing is very important to me. So, I work from home and take care of them, while my wife goes to the office. She and I both implement the fact that its absolutely normal to be a stay-at-home dad and it's not a gender-specific role, just for the mother to stay home and take care of the house and children'' - Rohit Nanda, 39, Freelance Writer (c)Pintrest (3) Cooking Doesn't Challenge Masculinity "My mother always loved cooking and she was of the opinion anyone can cook. She never saw it as an activity for just women, where they cook and serve at all times. In fact, my sister was never encouraged to enter the kitchen. If her interest lay there, she definitely would have. But I loved to cook since a child and my mother always encouraged it. Today I have my own restaurants and I still love to cook. It was because of my mother I changed my hobby, to my work now" - Pritiyush Kalra, 35, Chef (4) A Choice Is A Choice "I was always fascinated by wearing non-boyish clothes as a kid. I mean, I liked all these colourful dresses and my mom's make-up. I would just stare at her getting ready and always go for her make-up when she wasn't around. I remember the day she caught me, I thought I would -be in big trouble. But she asked me what I liked about make-up and I said I liked the colours. She then told me it was my choice as to what I liked wearing and how I liked dressing and she would never make that for me. I am very grateful to her for making it easy to identify and accept my choices and my sexuality, when society refused to" - Ankit Moghe, 28, Make-Up Artist. (5) It's About Knowing What're You're Good At "I have been fond of classical dance since I was a child. I used to watch it on television and always start dancing at home. My mother saw that time and again and enrolled me in Bharatanatyam classes. My father was very against this decision and said it's only something girls should do. But my mother stuck her ground and today I am a professional dancer, running my own school. It has also taught me that gender-neutral parenting is very important. It doesn't confuse who you are, it enhances your belief in equal opportunity between the two genders and this is what I will impart to my children as well." - Romith Iyer, 29, Danseur (c)Pintrest Gender-neutral kids are more creative as they're given an opportunity to explore their own wants and needs without facing a bias or a discouragement in their expression of choice. It is fairly important to reduce gender importance and norms that classify as a staunchly patriarchal society. In fact, it's time to do away with the basics of patriarchy and equalise and normalise the effect both genders have, in society. This Mother's Day, these 5 men wish to thank their mother for giving them the ultimate lesson in life- embracing who and what you really are!
