Eating right before bed is never a healthy habit. The ideal time for dinner is at least three hours before going to bed. Eating the right food at night is very crucial in ensuring sound sleep and better digestion. There are certain foods you should never eat before going to bed. They can end up causing a turbulent night ahead. Here are the six foods you should mandatorily avoid at night:

1. Milk

Though rich in protein and calcium, milk is something you should definitely avoid at night. The lactose content of the milk causes indigestion thereby depriving you of a perfect sleep. Additionally, if you are lactose intolerant, you should keep milk at an arm’s length during the night time. You can have pasta instead.



2. Chocolate

A small cube of chocolate is something everyone loves to have after supper. However, your favorite dessert can be very unhealthy. The high sugar content and caffeine keeps away you from sleeping well. Consequently, lack of sleep causes sluggishness and inefficiency in work.


3. Pizza

Say a big no to Pizza before going to bed. Your choicest pizza contains high calories and trans fats which can sit in your stomach throughout the night leaving you disturbed for a protracted period of time.


4. Fruit Juice

The idea of gulping down a glass of fruit juice instead of dinner is rather very bad. Fruit juices during night tend to have an acidic reaction on your body. They can cause heartburn as well.


5. Alcohol

A peg of alcohol at night can lead to an acid influx. Alcohol relaxes your valves that connect the stomach to the oesophagus. Consequently, the body is unable to place the food where it belongs resulting in an acid influx.


6. Soda

Are you suffering from an acid reflux and thus planning to drink a glass of soda to counter the malady? You might not get the desired results. Soda is itself highly acidic in content which can harm the valves due to carbonation thereby leading to increased pressure on the stomach.

Feminism itself is nothing but a simple movement that pursues equal rights for women (including transwomen) and against misogyny both external and internal.

"In India, to be born as a man is a crime, to question a woman is an atrocious crime, and this all because of those women who keep suppressing men in the name of feminism."

Feminism, a worldwide movement that started to establish, define and defend equal rights for women in all sections- economically, politically, and socially. India, being a patriarchal society gives a gender advantage to the men in the society thus, Indian feminists sought to fight against the culture-specific issue for women in India. Feminism itself is nothing but a simple movement that pursues equal rights for women (including transwomen) and against misogyny both external and internal. It states nowhere that women should get more wages than men, that women deserve more respect than men, that's pseudo-feminism.

Yakshi statue by Kanayi Kunjiraman at Malampuzha garden, Kerala

Kerala is a land of many good things. It has an abundance of nature, culture, art, and food. It is also a place of legend and myth, and is known for its popular folklore, the legend of Yakshi. This is not a popular tale outside the state, but it is common knowledge for travellers, especially those who fare through forests at night.

The legend of the yakshi is believed to be India's equivalent of the Romanian Dracula, except of course, the Yakshi is a female. Many Malayalis believe that the Yakshi wears a white saree and had long hair. She has a particular fragrance, which is believed to be the fragrance of the Indian devil-tree flowers. She seduces travellers with her beauty, and kills them brutally.

Ancient India not only made mentions of homosexuality but accepted it as well.


The LGBTQ+ acronym stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and others. In India LGBTQ+ community also include a specific social group, part religious cult, and part caste: the Hijras. They are culturally defined either as "neither men nor women" or as men who become women by adopting women's dress and behavior. Section 377 of the India Penal code that criminalized all sexual acts "against the order of nature" i.e. engaging in oral sex or anal sex along with other homosexual activities were against the law, ripping homosexual people off of their basic human rights. Thus, the Indian Supreme Court ruled a portion of Section 377 unconstitutional on 6th September 2018.
