Meet Anuradha Koirala- A True Wonder Woman

ANURADHA KOIRALA- THE TRUE WONDER WOMAN

November 2010, Demi Moore stands tall as her speech in the CNN Top Heroes Award makes the audience break into a huge applause. But not she but a frail Nepalese woman walking confidentally up the stage makes the audience's eyes moist.
Anuradha Koirala, a visionary, a teacher, a winner of the CNN Top Heroes Award. And a lot more, Anuradha is responsible for freeing no less than 12,000 girls from the clutches of sex trafficking.
Globally, sex trafficking figures show a dismal scenario.

CHILDREN’S DAY AT SAROJ GUPTA CANCER CENTRE AND RESEARCH INSTITUTE

CHILDREN’S DAY AT SAROJ GUPTA CANCER CENTRE AND RESEARCH INSTITUTE
Since our childhood, we have been celebrating 14th November in a special manner and receiving special gifts. But there are children who have been caged in the four walls of the hospital and spend their lives with the saline bottles. They hardly enjoy their lives since they suffer from excruciating pain and lead a life full of uncertainties.
This year like every other years, the paediatric department of Saroj Gupta Cancer Centre and Research Institute celebrated the Children's day  in order to bring some Joy and delight in the little lives.
On 14th November, the management of the hospital organized a drawing competition  and other cultural activities where some of the paediatric patients had participated in the events like recitation, song and dance. They entertained the audience  which included other patients and their family members, doctors and nurses with their talents.

Ask. Talk. Listen. It's time to address the matter.

Ask. Talk. Listen.

Depression - such an overused term, isn't it? But more than overused it's over felt.
More than half of today's population is victim to this disease. Now you would ask me, why is it even termed as a disease ? But that's where we go wrong. It is as important and serious a disease like any other so called "medical" disease. Maybe it is not always visible to the naked eye like when a person is down with fever you can understand that but depression is not easily understood or detected. It's more like saying the person is suffering from mood swings or has some anger management issue or maybe they just had a bad day at school/work. No. They didn't. And the victims generally hide it well with their ever enthusiastic smile, because they neither seek for attention nor sympathy.
My question is why can't we treat depression just like we would treat a heart patient or a cancer patient? Why would we have to be all "hush-hush" about t…

Class 11 student murders a Class 2 student to postpone exams

RYAN SCHOOL MURDER
The probe into the most sensational murder case in recent times was the murder of a class 2 student of the Ryan International School of Gurgaon allegedly by a class 11 student to postpone exams. Pradhyumn, a Class 2 student, was found with his throat slit just outside the ground floor washroom of the school on September 8 morning, minutes after his father had walked him and his elder sister Vidhi (who is in the fifth standard) to the campus. Pradhyumn had gone to his classroom after saying bye to Vidhi, and then to the washroom at the other end of the floor.
First the case was being handled by the Gurugram police. Gurugram Police claimed that Ashok had taken the bus driver's knife with him to the toilet to clean it. There he saw Pradyuman alone and tried to sexually assault him, and when he shouted for help, he slit his neck.
But CBI after taking up the case claimed that it was the class 11 student of the same school who did this crime and his motive was to postp…
