A Hindu sadhu sits besides a holy trishul.

From the brutal second wave of the pandemic to the oppressive acts of the Taliban regime, Indians and fellow Hindus have suffered a lot in this tumultuous year. To add more suffering to the Hindu's, a bunch of so-called liberals, social activists, researchers, university professors, etc. have organized an international conference against the Hindu community.

" Dismantling Globa Hindutva " as the conference is named, is a virtual congregation of anti-national, anti-Hindu, anti-semitic, pro-Jihadi elements. The organizers who remain staunch on staying anonymous have stated that the conference aims at scrutinizing what Hindutva is, says and does with regard to a wide range of topics, from caste to political economy, to gender and sexuality, and more.


Furthermore, when the conference drew a barrage of flak from the global Hindu community, the organizers while remaining unbowed pressed ahead and released a statement justifying the conference.

While justifying the timing of the conference the organizers stated, that the conference is being held at a time when a Hindu supremacist regime is at the helm of India, and so this conference aims to throw light on what Hindutva does when it has captured state power by closely scrutinising both its official policies, and its unofficial policies like creating impunity for Hindutva violence and setting up massive propaganda machinery.

When gheraoed by falk from the global Hindu community and various other prominent people, the organizers impetuously stated that they categorically reject the idea that critiquing Hindutva is in any way harmful to Hindu students. Furthermore, they imbecilely stated that they consider Hindutva to be the most significant threat to Hinduism's pluralist ethos, as well as to efforts to fight ills in Indian society like casteism. Alluding to the critics the organizers said that, certain groups can't distinguish between a critique of Hindutva and attacks on Hinduism says more about their confusion, affiliation, and desire to defend Hindutva using any rhetoric necessary, than it says about our conference.

US State Senator Niraj Antani, has strongly condemned hosting of the 'Dismantling Global Hindutva' conference. "This conference represents a disgusting attack on Hindus across the United States, and we must all condemn this as nothing more than racism and bigotry against Hindus. I will always stand strong against Hinduphobia," said Ohio State Senator Niraj Antani, in an official statement.



The Covid-19 pandemic has ravaged every corner of the globe since its onset in late 2019. Various governments collapsed, civilian life has been affected, moreover, uncertainty is being peddled on a global scale.

In the midst of the pandemic, Radical Islam is re-building its foundations for a stronger assault. Afghanistan has been completely taken over by the terror outfit Taliban. Taliban is continually engaged in building cordial relations with Al Qaeda which has now reconciled with its erstwhile rival ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria). ISIS, in turn, has global links, from Boko Haram in Nigeria to the Chechen Separatists in Russia.

Summing it all, one can easily state that there seems to be a massive conspiracy to attack peaceful democracies all across the globe and subsequently install a puppet pro-Islamic regime that would facilitate the spread of Radical Islam.

With Afghanistan drooped in radical Islam, Pakistan being too feeble to oppose it, leading it to inadvertently support it. The fertile breeding grounds for Radical Islam is at India's doorsteps. Radical Islamists are in India's foyer planning to mount an all-out attack on the fragile democratic fabric. It is during this nadir, that the government should lay emphasis on nation-building activities, spruce up the collective defence spending and prioritize national security. With the enemy at India's doorsteps, I reminisce the great euphoric words of the legendary Winston Churchill, " Victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long and hard the road may be; for, without victory, there is no survival. " I urge fellow Indians to take inspiration from Mr Churchill's words and contribute to the nation-building activities.

The aim of the book is to teach children that families can exist in different forms, and show them how to accept the diversity in family backgrounds.

By Siddhi Jain

Delhi-based author Pritisha Borthakur is set to release her new book, 'Puhor and Niyor's Mural of Family Stories'. The 1,404-word children's book was put together to address a new kind of societal debacle in the family system. The author says the aim is to teach children that families can exist in different forms, and show them how to accept the diversity in family backgrounds.

The author who named the book after her twin sons -- Puhor and Niyor -- is a parent who has seen and heard the tales of ridicule and discrimination suffered by many in India and beyond. She says the book is an artistic illustration for kids that details how different families can live and coexist. Whether it's children with two dads or two moms, children with a single dad or single mom, and even multiracial family units, Borthakur's book teaches love, understanding, and compassion towards unconventional families.

Beyond race, gender, color, and ethnicity which have formed the bases for discrimination since the beginning of time, this book aims to bring to light a largely ignored issue. For so long, single parents have been treated like a taboo without any attempt to understand their situations; no one really cares how or why one's marriage ended but just wants to treat single parents as villains simply for choosing happiness and loving their children.

Homosexual parents, a relatively new family system, is another form that has suffered hate and discrimination for many years. Pritisha emphasizes the need to understand that diversity in people and family is what makes the world beautiful and colourful. 'Puhor and Niyor's Mural of Family Stories' is a firm but compassionate statement against all forms of discrimination on the bases of sexual identity, gender, race, and even differences in background

Clean and maintained hands boost confidence in daily life activities.

If you feel that clean and well-groomed hands are just an essential prerequisite for women, you might like to think twice. Men should equally pay attention to their hands because our hand houses 1,500 bacteria living on each square centimeter of its skin. You can easily assume what havoc it can create in our body because in India we have the culture of eating with our hands and spaces beneath nails can become breeding heaven for germs. Moreover, clean and maintained hands boost confidence in their daily life activities. Therefore, it's important to keep your hands clean irrespective of your gender by washing or sanitizing at regular intervals. And, to keep them groomed, you don't have to visit a salon.

Rajesh U Pandya, Managing Director, KAI India, gives easy and completely doable tips to follow at home:

* Refrain from harsh soaps: You should be mindful of the soap you are using to wash your hands. Your soap can have a moisturizing element in it like aloe vera or shea butter. Ensure that you're washing your hands with normal water as hot water can make your hand's skin dry and scaly.
