A report published in ‘The Times’ has unveiled that a 70-page manual is being circulated online on the jihadist forums, entreating the extremists to draw money by engaging in online scams and frauds.

The guide for preparing, funding and carrying out terror strikes in the West is created by Islamic State (IS). The Times report states that the guide focuses on the formation of sleeper cells of one or two people and also directs the ‘would-be-terrorists’ to modify their names and also asks them to westernize their ways.

The security services worry about how the guide, which is written in flawless English, makes mention of creation and usage of crude weapons, designing homemade bombs and mobile-phone detonators.

A section in the manual coaches the partisans to shun Islamic clothing and to wear colored contact lenses, and to adopt a modern alias, which help in creating an overall distinct appearance.

The manual, which reads, “Befriend good decent white people who are dissatisfied with their governments, be close to them and offer them support and guidance in life. If these people open up to you, you can decide if you want to tell them about Islam. You will tell them enough information to satisfy what service you require off them, but not more than that,” has alarmed the security forces.

One section of the guide commemorates the two brothers, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and Tamerlan, who planted bombs at the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013, which killed three people and injured over 200 others were injured.

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.
