NEW DELHI: India added a record number of coronavirus cases Sunday, approaching Russia as the world s third most infected nation as it opens a mass treatment center in the capital to fight the pandemic. The health ministry reported just under 25,000 cases and 613 deaths in 24 hours the biggest daily spike since the first case was detected in late January. The sharp rise came as Delhi started treating patients at a spiritual center converted into a sprawling isolation facility and hospital with 10,000 beds, many made of cardboard. About the size of 20 football fields, the facility will treat mild symptomatic and asymptomatic cases. State government officials fear the metropolis could record more than half a million cases by the end of the month. India s surge took the total tally to more than 673,000 cases and 19,268 deaths, with the country on the cusp of surpassing badly hit Russia. A strict lockdown in place since late March has gradually been lifted, allowing most activities as the economy nose dived amid the shutdown. Schools, metro trains in cities, cinemas, gyms and swimming pools remain closed however and international flights are still grounded. Authorities have made wearing masks mandatory in public places, while large gatherings are banned and shops and other public establishments are required to implement social distancing. The western state of Maharashtra, the worst hit state and home to financial hub Mumbai, recorded over 7,000 new cases. Southern Tamil Nadu state and the national capital New Delhi recorded more than 4,200 and 2,500 fresh cases respectively. Mumbai, Delhi and Chennai, Tamil Nadu s capital, are the worst affected cities. The national government says it has tackled the virus well but critics allege India is conducting very few tests, leaving the true scale of the pandemic unknown. ROME: Ennio Morricone, one of the world s best known and most prolific film composers, died in Rome on Monday at the age of 91. Tributes poured in for the man who composed the music for about 500 films, including his old childhood friend Sergio Leone s 1966 spaghetti western The Good, the Bad and the Ugly and Quentin Tarantino s The Hateful Eight for which he finally won an Oscar in 2016. Morricone died in hospital where he was being treated for a fractured femur following a fall, according to a statement from lawyer and family friend Giorgio Assuma. Morricone passed away in the early hours of July 6 with the comfort of his faith, the statement said. He remained fully lucid and with great dignity right until the end, it added. Tributes began pouring in for the maestro soon after his death was announced. We will remember forever and with infinite gratitude the artistic genius of maestro Ennio Morricone, Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said. He made us dream, he moved us and made us think, writing unforgettable notes that will remain forever in the history of music and cinema, he said on Twitter. Italian film actress Monica Bellucci said of Morricone that there are people who have the ability to make the world better because they know how to create beauty, while Gilles Jacob, the former head of the Cannes film festival, described him as the emperor of film music. Famed Italian conductor Riccardo Muti called Morricone a master for whom I nurtured friendship and admiration, describing him as an extraordinary musician who could jump with ease from film scores to classical music. Born on November 10, 1928, Morricone began composing at the tender age of six, and at just 10 he enrolled in trumpet school at the prestigious Saint Cecilia conservatory in Rome. He played in jazz bands throughout the 1940s before beginning to ghost write for film and theater. In 1961, at the age of 33, he collaborated with director Luciano Salce in Mission Ultra secrete before going on to gain fame with the score for A Fistful of Dollars starring Clint Eastwood in 1964. Before winning the elusive Oscar for best film score at age 87 in 2016, the Rome born son of a trumpeter had been nominated no fewer than five times. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences embarrassed that such a talent had not been recognized sooner presented him with a lifetime achievement award in 2007. Morricone s previous nominations were for Days of Heaven (1978), The Mission (1986), The Untouchables (1987), Bugsy (1991) and Malena (2000). Although he is most closely associated in the public mind with Leone s westerns starring Eastwood, Morricone s composition for Roland Joffe s Jesuit drama The Mission is considered by many critics to be his cinematic masterpiece, an epic and eclectic reflection of South America s musical melting pot. Throughout his career, Morricone worked with some of Hollywood s most acclaimed filmmakers as well as arthouse directors. After his collaboration with Leone, he worked with Italian screen legends Federico Fellini and Pier Paolo Pasolini and later with the likes of Pedro Almodovar, Bernardo Bertolucci, Brian De Palma and Oliver Stone.

Ever since the incident of George Floyd s horrific death at the hands of a rogue and irresponsible police officer in Minneapolis on May 25, we, the American public, have been subjected to non stop protests and situations that have escalated into acts of utter violence, looting, burning, destruction of property, disrespect for law and order, the defacing of America s buildings and historical monuments and statues. The original premise of protesting against police brutality and the wrongful death of Mr. Floyd has now become a totally out of control mob mentality bent on lawlessness and anarchy.The Black Lives Matter movement said the protests against certain injustices were to be peaceful. Anybody having a television, computer or any digital device knows otherwise. There s plenty of proof that the marches and protests, violent occupations of portions of major cities, under any banner or name, are anything but peaceful. These riots incited arson, shootings, vandalism, rape and now at least two murders, providing unmitigated evidence that any intention of peaceful assembly has been totally abandoned.
Among the many things that writer director Anvita Dutt s Bulbbul gets right, the role of the Thakur s haveli or mansion is particularly impressive. From the moment we see the film s protagonist, the titular Bulbbul (Tripti Dimri) arriving at the old house after her marriage to the eldest thakur scion Indranil (Rahul Bose), it s clear that this haveli, gloomy on the outside and tastefully decorated from the inside, is going to be an important character, almost, in the story.In a crucial scene, we see Bulbbul and Dr Sudip (Parambrata Chattopadhyay) telling the younger thakur Satya (Avinash Tiwary) about one of the good doctor s patients a woman who was clearly getting beaten up by her husband. Every time Dr Sudip s services were required, she would claim to have fallen down the stairs . As Bulbbul notes with a meaningful smile, There s only one house in the village that has stairs , alluding to the haveli. Later, we learn that this mirrors how Dr Sudip came to meet Bulbbul: after Indranil beat her up brutally, he called the doctor to dress her wounds and claimed that she had fallen down the stairs.
Mumbai: Observing that a public servant is duty bound to speak the truth, the Nagpur bench of the Bombay High Court recently ordered Maharastra Police to initiate perjury proceedings against a police officer, who turned hostile in a murder case despite being the sole eyewitness. The HC said it could not be a mute spectator in such cases. A bench of Justices Nitin Sambre and Nitin Suryavanshi said, "Prima facie it is clear from the record that the police officer, being a public servant, was duty bound in law to protect the deceased, who was in his custody. In his presence, in the court premises, the deceased was brutally attacked with weapons and murdered but while deposing before the lower court, he has resiled from his previous statement and tried to support the accused. Thus, a prima facie case is made out against him for perjury and it is expedient in the interests of justice to launch a prosecution."

In 1999, one year after Matthew Shepard was brutally murdered in Laramie, Wyoming, lawyers for one of the defendants attempted to blame ;gay panic; for their client;s actions. The LGBT Bar defines the LGBTQ panic defense as, ;a legal strategy that asks a jury to find that a victim s sexual orientation or gender identity expression is to blame for a defendant s violent reaction, including murder.; In other words: The perpetrator is justifying his or her actions by saying that the victim;s sexual orientation or gender identity caused their loss of control.The judge in the Shepard case deemed the defense inadmissible. Though, as the American Bar Association (ABA) points out, the decision was "not due to the illegitimacy of the gay trans panic defense, but instead due to Wyoming s statutory insanity defense construct.
