The Supreme Court on Wednesday ordered the CBI probe into the untimely death of Bollywood actor, Sushant Singh Rajput. The first step towards seeking justice for Sushant Singh Rajput has finally been taken.


Late Actor Sushant Singh Rajput was found hanging at his apartment on 14th June. Since then, the suicide case was being probed by the Mumbai police.

KK Singh, father of Sushant Singh, on 25th July filed a complaint to the Patna Police against the late actor’s girlfriend, Rhea Chakraborty, and her family, accusing them for abetting his son’s suicide. The Patna police filed an FIR against Rhea Chakraborty and others.

The Supreme Court on Wednesday asked the Mumbai Police to handover the evidence collected from the scene to the CBI. The apex court has also acknowledged that the FIR registered at Patna by Sushant’s father was correct. The court made a point that the Bihar government had the right to refer the Patna FIR filed by Sushant’s father. The Supreme Court said that CBI will be competent to all the FIR’s related to Sushant’s death case. The court also ensured that there must be no confusion about CBI being the sole authority to investigate the truth behind Rajput’s sudden death. The Supreme court further observed that since the Mumbai police had registered only an accidental death report for Rajput’s death, it had limited investigation powers. And since Bihar police registered a full-fledged FIR, the central agency should probe the case.

Justice shall prevail.

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.

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.
