Trump then offered Drake $10,000 and the use of his private plane if she agreed to accompany him to a party, the Guardian reported.

The Trump campaign said: “This story is totally false and ridiculous. The picture is one of thousands taken out of respect for people asking to have their picture taken with Trump. He does not know this person, does not remember this person and would have no interest in ever knowing her. This is just another attempt by the Clinton campaign to defame a candidate who just today is number one in three different polls.”

Drake made the allegations at a press conference held by the lawyer Gloria Allred, who has previously introduced two Trump accusers to the public.

Eleven women have bby now accused Trump of sexual assault or inappropriate sexual behaviour since the leak of a 2005 video in which the Republican boasted of attempting to “fuck” a married woman and being able to “grab” women “by the pussy” without their consent.

Trump had apologised for his remarks, and said the conversation was a “locker-room talk”. He has since denied all accusations.

Trump’s poll numbers have suffered amid the controversy and he currently trails his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton by about six points nationally, according to realclearpolitics.com.

While delivering a policy speech in Gettysburg town of Pennsylvania on Saturday, Trump said he would sue each accuser.

“Every woman lied when they came forward to hurt my campaign,” he said. “Total fabrication. The events never happened. All of these liars will be sued after the election is over.”

Drake said she was working for Wicked Pictures at the Lake Tahoe golf event and accepted an invitation to walk the course with the billionaire.

“During that time he asked for my phone number, which I gave to him. Later that evening, he invited me to his room. I said I didn’t feel right going alone, so two other women came with me. In the penthouse suite, I met Donald again. When we entered the room he grabbed each of us tightly in a hug and kissed each of us on the lips without asking for permission. He was wearing pyjamas.”

According to Drake, a bodyguard was present as Trump questioned her about her work in adult films and asked each woman present “whether we were married or single”.

Drake said that after she left, a man called on Trump’s behalf to ask her to come back to his room which she declined.

Drake said Trump then called himself and asked her to have dinner with him and to go to a party. When Drake declined, “Donald then asked me ‘What do you want? How much’?”

Drake excused herself and after that a man called and offered her $10,000.

“I declined again and once more gave as an excuse that I had to return to Los Angeles for work. I was then told that Trump would allow me the use of his private jet to take me home if I accepted his invitation.” (IANS)

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.
