Female genital mutilation in its simplest definition is the partial or complete removal of the external female genitalia for nonmedical purposes, and the sewing and stapling of both the sides of the vulva leaving just a small hole large enough for urine and menstruation to pass. The typical mutilation is done around the female s 12th birthday using a razor and no anesthetics. Many times a group of girls who are of age are sent by their mothers to the village nurses and doctor under false pretenses. The girls are lied to and are lead to believe that they are going on trip or an adventure of some sort when instead they are taken into the woods, blindfolded and tied down to the bushes. Then the appointed doctor proceeds to use the blade to perform the surgery while the nurses hold down the squirming girl. After the cutting is performed, the girl is taken to the side where a small hole is dug for her to bleed in. She will spend the next several hours there waiting for the bleeding to stop, and once it ceases, the nurses bring back dried herbs and leaves to put on the cuts. They are then peeled off and replaced continuously to speed up the scarring process. It can take anywhere from three weeks to three months for the healing to cease, but once the female makes it through, she is commended and will be recognized and accepted as a functioning woman of the society there.As one may suspect, there are many side effects of FGM. These include severe bleeding, trouble urinating, and infections that may potentially lead to death. FGM also commonly leads to complications for childbirth and contributes to the deaths of newborns. Female genital mutilation is a major human rights issue as it subjects harm to a woman s body, preventing her from leading a healthy life. We as a society are slowly but steadily making progress to diminish and hopefully discontinue the orthodox act. Part of eradicating FGM is educating the communities about safe and healthy practices as well as human rights. This is an easily achievable goal as long as there is constant intervention and education. According to the World Health Organization, FGM can rapidly end in the next generation if communities start taking progressive steps to end FGM.
It's only the first match of World Cup Qualifying, so we can't take too much from this one. Bulgaria is sitting pretty on top of the group though, and if they can keep pulling out goals like they did against Luxembourg, they may just have a legitimate chance of squirming through to their first World Cup since 1998. Here's hoping the goals keep flowing.
In an embarrassment to Congress, articles in its mouthpiece today criticised Jawaharlal Nehru's policy on Kashmir issue and alleged that Sonia Gandhi's father was a "fascist soldier", leaving the party squirming over the controversy on its Foundation Day.An unsigned write-up in the Mumbai unit's journal, coinciding with the party's 131st foundation day, blamed Nehru for "the state of affairs in Kashmir, China and Tibet" even as another write-up made controversial remarks on party chief Sonia Gandhi, forcing its editor and Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam to order inquiry even as he claimed he was unaware of the content.Both these articles, which do not bear the name of the writer, have been published in this month's issue of 'Congress Darshan' Hindi edition as a tribute to the country's first Home Minister Sardar Vallabbhai Patel on his death anniversary on December 15.The article states that Nehru should have listened to Patel's views on international affairs and that the relationship between the two leaders remained strained."Despite Patel getting the post of Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister, the relations between the two leaders remained strained, and both had threatened to resign time and again," the article says.If Nehru had embraced Patel's foresight, many problems in international affairs would not have arisen, it adds.The article cites a letter that Patel purportedly wrote in 1950 to caution Nehru against China's policy towards Tibet and in which "Patel described China as unfaithful, and a future enemy of India.""Had Patel been heard (by Nehru) then, the problems of Kashmir, China, Tibet and Nepal wouldn't have existed now. Patel opposed Nehru's move of taking the Kashmir issue to the UNO," stated the article, adding, "Nehru did not agree with Patel's views on Nepal."Another article, which focuses on the Congress President, describes her early life in great detail, including her "ambition to become an airhostess", as well as allegation that her father was a member of the Italian forces that lost to the Russians in the World War."Sonia Gandhi's father Stephano Maino was a former fascist soldier," it alleged.The write-up also describes how Sonia quickly rose to the position of party president."Sonia Gandhi registered as a primary member of the Congress in 1997 and became the party&'s president in 62 days. She also made an unsuccessful attempt to form a government," the article says.Mumbai Regional Congress Committee chief and editor of the journal Sanjay Nirupam said he is not involved in the day-to-day functioning of the magazine and was unaware of the articles."I admit the mistake. Inquiry will be initiated against the editorial department which committed the mistake. We will take measures that such a mistake is not repeated," Nirupam said.In Delhi, Congress leaders Salman Khurshid and Raj Babbar said that it should be seriously looked into."If something like this has come out in the Congress article, then AICC will take it up," Khurshid said.Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad said that it was clear that the writer was not aware of history and had no knowledge of the conditions under which Nehru had become the first Prime Minister and the challenges he faced like eradicating poverty.Top Congress leaders had gathered to mark the Foundation Day at at AICC headquarters in the national capital.
