December 15, 2016: In the country where the sex ratio is appalling, only 940 girls born each year for every 1,000 boys, according to the 2011 Census, people are trying hard to change the scenario. As this Malayalam newspaper did, the headline of an article in the newspaper read as ‘Want to conceive a male child? Here are some tricks’.

You are right, in this 21st century this article did get published. It has now been taken off from the Internet but how does that matter? In a country where even sex determination of foetuses is illegal, the Malayalam daily, Mangalam published the ways to conceive a male child.

According to LadiesFinger, a website which translated the article says, “The article does admit that these methods might not assure 100 percent success. This is because even science cannot discount for those rare anomalies, despite the solid reasoning and logic behind these facts.”

“The tips include limiting procreational activities to days 1,3,5 and 7 of the week, during which the strength of the sperm is ‘scientifically stronger’.”

Then, no-skipping breakfast rule for a woman interested in boy-bearing.
According to The Ladies Finger, “Mangalam dictates that men should avoid food items including acidity content, as it reduces the power and the brawn of the semen. Stronger sperm means XY-bearing embryos, as the presence of the strength automatically cancels out on the possibility of girl embryos.”

And then, every future mother of boys should sleep with their faces turned to the left side, also facing west simultaneously.

LadiesFinger further translates Mangalam stating, “Men should avoid food items including acidity content, as it reduces the power and the brawn of the semen. Stronger sperm means XY-bearing embryos, as the presence of the strength automatically cancels out on the possibility of girl embryos.”

Google comes up with a new feature

Google’s admission that it had in 2014 inadvertently coded the 112 distress number and the UIDAI helpline number into its setup wizard for Android devices triggered another controversy on Saturday as India’s telecom regulator had only recommended the use of 112 as an emergency number in April 2015.

After a large section of smartphone users in India saw a toll-free helpline number of UIDAI saved in their phone-books by default, Google issued a statement, saying its “internal review revealed that in 2014, the then UIDAI helpline number and the 112 distress helpline number were inadvertently coded into the SetUp wizard of the Android release given to OEMs for use in India and has remained there since”.

However, the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) recommended only in April 2015 that the number 112 be adopted as the single emergency number for the country.

According to Google, “since the numbers get listed on a user’s contact list, these get  transferred accordingly to the contacts on any new device”.

Google was yet to comment on the new development.

Meanwhile, French security expert that goes by the name of Elliot Alderson and has been at the core of the entire Aadhaar controversy, tweeted on Saturday: “I just found something interesting. I will probably do full disclosure tomorrow”.

“I’m digging into the code of the @Google SetupWizard app and I found that”.

“As far as I can see this object is not used in the current code, so there is no implications. This is just a poor coding practice in term of security,” he further tweeted.

On Friday, both the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) as well as the telecom operators washed their hand of the issue.

While the telecom industry denied any role in the strange incident, the UIDAI said that he strange incident, the UIDAI said that some vested interests were trying to create “unwarranted confusion” in the public and clarified that it had not asked any manufacturer or telecom service provider to provide any such facility.

Twitter was abuzz with the new development after a huge uproar due to Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) Chairman R.S. Sharma’s open Aadhaar challenge to critics and hackers.

Ethical hackers exposed at least 14 personal details of the TRAI Chairman, including mobile numbers, home address, date of birth, PAN number and voter ID among others. (IANS)
