Red Planet Mars, VOA

Washington, December 14, 2016: Three tall “towers” standing in a perfect straight line on our neighbouring planet Mars in a recent image are claimed by some UFO and alien enthusiasts as clear evidence that highly intelligent beings exist there.

NewsGram brings to you current foreign news from all over the world.


According to the author of a video posted on YouTube channel called Mundodesconocido, the image shows three “towers” about 4.8 km tall are arranged neatly in a perfect straight line.

The author believes it is no coincidence, especially as the supposed towers seem to show signs of advanced technology.

The clip also includes 3D renderings of the towers in addition to the original, more blurry images made available to everyone by the Mars Global Surveyor and Mars Odyssey missions.

The believers argued that the “towers” do not look like something that can be built by wind or water.

However, scientists in NASA are not as impressed by the interesting discovery.

They said the truth could be disappointing as the three formations may actually look not so perfect when seen from close by.

They further explained that when people on Earth see those “towers”, their brains tend to look for familiar artefacts to explain the world around them, a phenomenon called pareidolia.

The scientists gave another example of the famous “Face on Mars”, which in fact does not really look like a face at all when seen from another perspective. (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.
