Over-pampering causes high suicide rates among children

We have too many uncles and aunts, that means our parents were blessed with so many siblings but when it comes to the preset nuclear family system there is only one child for the parents, whether it is a boy or a girl. Population explosion, economical and social status, financial condition force a family to go by the slogan ‘Hum ek humem ek’ and as a result there is only one child is being brought up by the parents.

Nadakkavu-Koothattukulam highway made a canal of accidents

As one side of the Nadakkavu-Koothattukulam highway is muddy now, KSRTC bus plunging into the pipe-line canal on Monday, June 17, 2013 when the monsoon is in its full swing

The highway with the abrupt curves, heaps and slope was already a risky path for the public to commute on daily basis therefore, there had been huge campaigns and agitation from the local civics on tunneling the Nadakkavu-Koothattukulam highway for Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JnNURM) to reach drinking water for Kochi from Piravom River. But blindly closing the eyes to all these protests and campaigns, K. Babu, Minister for Fisheries, Ports and Excise, nodded for the already-delayed pipe-laying project to woo the voters of his constituency and thus to have an easy win for the coming election.

Does mega serial elicit behavioral changes in serial artists?

Eventually, we would end up being what we have been exposed to. Unlike movie shooting, mega serial shooting is very prolonged and the artists have to be in the shoes of the particular cast that they have been giving life on screen throughout. A movie shooting could be done within a month or a couple of months and the stars who finish their roles in one movie embrace another character in the next. So there is no question of being in a particular character for a long-drawn-out time period and therefore, the old character is soon forgotten and paves way for the new one.
