With India readying itself for 5G roll out, South Korean tech giant Samsung on Monday said providing secure network is the priority for them, expressing hope of working with various telecom operators to soon launch the fifth-generation cellular network technology in the country.


The Indian market is expected to give Samsung a big opportunity to improve its 5G presence. Samsung said it would be launching 5G in India once telecom operators are ready to work with the company.

“The company is working over the past 10 years on development of the 5G and the main focus is on how to provide secure and efficient network and for the same we are working with different carriers, network providers of various countries across the world,” June Hee Lee, Senior Vice President and Head of Technology Strategy Team, Samsung Electronics, told IANS.

Samsung has 5G network in US as well as in South Korea in both millimetre wave and sub six-GHz spectrum.

The company launched the world’s first 5G smartphone, the Galaxy S10 5G, in early April and has promoted its 5G solutions that can be used in a host of new businesses, including self-driving vehicles, smart factories and Internet of Things.

“The price of a device depends upon the price of components, there are various reasons behind the pricing of 5G devices. The firm is focused on rolling out 5G right now and in future we would work for availability of the quality product in the market with the advancement of technology,” informed Lee.

5G is the fifth-generation cellular network technology, which can boast speeds up to 20 times faster than your current 4G LTE cell phone and has latency as little as one millisecond.

“The availability of 5G is focused on two main principles — the first one is amount of data and second one is the speed. Therefore, it becomes very important to provide both of them in a proper manner,” Lee added.

With speeds up to roughly 20 times faster than 4G networks, consumers on a 5G network can download a full season of a TV show in minutes, play graphics-rich cloud games, stream 4K video with virtually no lag and enjoy enhanced virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) experiences.

In addition, 5G could unite more than one million devices per square km, transforming how consumers live, communicate and work by connecting not only smartphones but vehicles, factories, offices and cities as well. (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.
