Sharjah, Dec 1, 2016: An Indian man caught a ghostly figure on camera during a desert outing with his family and friends in Sharjah, a local media report said.

Indian Namit Vyas, 33, had clicked about 50 photos with his DSLR camera during the off-roading trip last Friday. Later when checking the photos, he noticed something in one particular frame which was spooky, reported Xpress, a tabloid published by Gulf News, on Wednesday.

Taken around twilight near interchange number 9 on Sharjah’s Al Dhaid Road, the photo was of his wife Anita and their three-year old daughter Illisha, but in the foreground there was ‘someone’ else too.

The picture shows a blurry figure of what appears to be a woman with outstretched arms and feet bent inwards and has been shared many times on social networking site Facebook.

Vyas, who is from Shimla and works as a sales manager in Dubai, said he had taken the photo in ‘auto mode’ and has no idea how the figure appeared in the frame.

“I usually edit all my photos before posting but not this time. The photo you see is completely raw, untouched,” said Vyas. “I still don’t know what was that because I know I had clicked only my wife and daughter in the frame. There was no one else.”

Vyas’s friend Deepanjan Banerjee who was with them, said: “The shadow in the picture is clearly visible but what’s baffling is that there was no one else in the frame except the two. The figure too doesn’t resemble any of the women in our group.”

Dubai-based Anjali Sharma who claims to have spent several nights at ‘haunted’ places across the UAE, said: “Such images are often produced when certain energies we can’t see are caught on camera. This might have been the case here too.”

The tabloid photographers said the image couldn’t have been photoshopped. (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.
