Mr Trudeau, you really didn't have to fly down an Indian chef from Canada

23 Feb 2018  |  indiatoday.in
At a dinner party hosted by the Canadian High Commissioner in India, the presence of convicted Khalistani terrorist Jaspal Atwal and Vancouver-based celebrity chef Vikram Vij, who was flown in by the Canadian government, sparked controversy. The Canadian government defended the decision to bring Vij to showcase Canadian cuisine, stating he volunteered his time and would have expenses covered. Critics questioned the necessity of flying a chef from Canada when notable Indian chefs were available, suggesting that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's cultural engagement might be superficial.

What is the Virginity Test men in Pune are trying to stop, and getting beaten up for?

23 Jan 2018  |  indiatoday.in
On January 22, three men from the Kanjarbhat community in Pune were assaulted for opposing a virginity test ritual. The test involves a newly married couple having intercourse on a white bedsheet while caste panchayat members wait outside. If the bedsheet shows blood stains, the bride is considered 'pure,' but a clean bedsheet can lead to severe consequences for the bride, including violence and abandonment. Siddhant Indrekar, a member of the 'Stop the V Ritual' WhatsApp group, had previously filed a complaint against the caste panchayat for accepting a bribe to approve a marriage, but no action was taken. The practice has faced strong opposition from within the community, with advocates like Priyanka Tamaichekar speaking out against it.

Triangle of Life: Is there really a sure-shot method to survive the earthquake?

26 Oct 2015  |  indiatoday.in
Following a 5.8 magnitude earthquake in Uttarakhand and parts of North India, Doug Copp's 'Triangle of Life' theory gained attention, suggesting that during an earthquake, one should lie next to furniture rather than underneath it to find a survival void. However, this theory has been widely criticized and debunked by experts and sites like Snopes.com for lacking scientific evidence and misrepresenting facts. The theory is based on observations rather than scientific testing, and while it advises against using stairs during an earthquake—a point experts agree on—most of Copp's claims are not supported by the scientific community.
