New Delhi: Lakshman Chandra Raut (35) and Babita Raut (30) committed suicide by jumping from the fourth floor of a building when their seven-year-old son Avinash Raut died of dengue, said Delhi Police on Saturday.

Police said the couple hailing from Odisha jumped from their rented accommodation in the Lado Sarai area of south Delhi on Wednesday around 12.15 am. The parents have left a suicide note in Odia explaining that they were responsible for their own actions.

A suicide note was also recovered from the possession of the couple in which it was mentioned that they were in extreme shock over the death of their son. The note was written in Odia. The couple also mentioned that nobody is responsible for their act and that they were responsible for their decision,” the officer said.

After being diagnosed with the symptoms of dengue, Avinash was denied admission in five private hospitals, police said. He was finally admitted on September 4 but died during treatment on September 8, unable to make up for the lost time.

The Delhi government has issued a show-cause notice to these hospitals.

Moolchand Khairati Ram Hospital, Aakash Hospital, Saket City Hospital, Max Hospital (Saket) and Irene Hospital (Kalkaji) have been asked to reply in a month as to why their registration should not be cancelled for refusing emergency medical care to the deceased child,” said a Delhi government official.

While Health Minister Satyendra Jain promised stringent steps to be taken in the case, the Union Health Minister J.P. Nadda went a step further: “I have ordered an inquiry into the incident reported in the media involving the death of a child in Delhi due to dengue and the suicide by his parents. Guilty won’t be spared.”

The Central government is also probing into the matter.

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.
