A 13-year-old girl died in Secunderabad after fasting for 68 days as part of a Jain ritual, police said on Saturday, bringing the spotlight back on the rigorous religious practices followed by the minority community.

Though the girl, identified as Aradhana, died on October 3, the Andhra Pradesh Child Rights Association lodged a police complaint on Friday seeking action against the parents for allegedly forcing her into performing the ‘tapasya’ (penance).

A family friend, however, said her action was voluntary.

The Hyderabad incident came months after the Rajasthan high court asked police to register criminal cases against a Jain family after an 82-year-old woman opted for the ritualistic fast to death called ‘santhara’.

The woman died 50 days into her fast after the Supreme Court stayed the high court order amid a nationwide debate on religious freedom in India.

The Jain community, with an estimated population of less than 50 lakh in India, follows an austere lifestyle including vegetarianism and a large section is known to observe the rigid customs laid down thousands of years ago. Digambara Jain monks – who consider the sky their clothing – still go naked.

Doctors at the Krishna Institute of Medical Sciences (KIMS) in Secunderabad said the long fasting could have led to her death.

“We did not admit her and gave the family a brought-dead certificate. However, doctors who examined her observed that she might have got cardiac arrest and renal failure due to imbalance of electrolytes in her body,” KIMS spokesperson Dr Alok Malik said.

Aradhana, a class eight student, was the only child of her parents who own a jewellery store at Pot Bazar area in the city.

The child rights association alleged that Aradhana was forced into fasting after the family’s ‘spiritual guru’ advised them of the ritual to help the family business grow.

“As per the ritual, she was provided only with water, that too, only till 6 pm. At the end of 68th day, a puja was held…the girl fainted and was taken to the hospital,” association president P Achyuta Rao told Hindustan Times.

While the girls’ parents were not available for comment, a close family acquaintance, who identified himself only as Piyush, said there was no truth in the complaint.

“Theirs is a well-off family with no financial problems. In fact, both the parents and the girl were very religious and were planning to become monks. The girl offered to take up tapasya on her own,” he said.

He said the number 68 has a significance in Jainism as one could attain self-purity by chanting a specific mantra 68 times.

“Last year, Aradhana had observed fast for 34 days and this time, she wanted to fast for 68 days… It was purely her personal decision, which was respected by her parents,” he added.

A photograph available with Hindustan Time shows Aradhana dressed up like a bride but looking very weak. Several women are also seen dancing in a colourfully-decorated tent.

“They (family members) feel she had made the supreme sacrifice and attained salvation. Hundreds of people attended her funeral held the following day,” Achyuta Rao said.

Secunderabad Market police station inspector M Mattaiah said the association filed the complaint with the commissioner of police and it was yet to reach him.

“We will decide on registering the FIR after going through the complaint,” he said.

Boko Haram, who at the peak of it’s siege on the nation occupied towns in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa states, made the Sambisa Forest their stronghold and strategic headquarters until they were pushed out by the military on Christmas eve, last year.

The competition which starts on Monday is expected to be hosted by President Muhammadu Buhari.

He is to be accompanied by the Minister of Defense, Alhaji Mansur Ali and Service Chiefs, Chief of Defense Staff, General Gabriel Olanisakin, Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai, Chief of Air Staff, Air Vice Marshal Abubakar Sadique and Chief of Naval Staff, Vice Admiral Obet Ebas.

The Chief of Training and Operations, Army, Major General David Amadu, during a press briefing on Friday in Maiduguri to kick-start the NASAC 2017 championship, said the championship would be formally declared open by the President on Monday, March 27, 2017.

He said the championship which drew to a close on Friday, March 31st has lined up a chain of activities which would include medical outreach to Bama, Konduga, and Magumeri IDPs camps, educational training for Army Education Corps in Maiduguri , security awareness meetings with the traditional rulers and distribution of relief materials to IDPs within Maiduguri and surrounding towns.

Amadu added that the championship was aimed at testing and shaping the intelligence and professional capacity of the Nigerian Army officers and soldiers as well as equipment.

EMBER MONTH ALERT!!!!!! Man allegedly Turns Into Tricycle

A man has allegedly turned into a tricycle (Keke Napep) in the Pedro area of Shomolu, Lagos state, after being forced to pick up a key which he dropped on the road.

According to a social media user who shared the unbelievable story, the man had accosted a young boy and had asked him to pick up the key which he (the man) threw on the floor, but the boy refused. 

The man was said to have insisted but the boy refused picking the key up. This got the attention of the people and the man was said to have told everyone who cared to listen that the boy was being disrespectful. But the crowd forced the man to pick his key up by himself and the unexpected happened.

Read the post below:

Please parents, teachers and guardians, continuously educate your wards on the need to be careful and not talk to strangers on the road. An incident occurred at Pedro, shomolu on Tuesday 22/11/12, precisely at famous bus stop. A man stopped a child returning from school and asked him to pick up a key from the ground. The child refused asking why the man couldn’t pick it up himself and this got the man agitated and he started shouting at the child saying he lacked respect for his elders and all sorts but the child still refused.

This attracted the attention of passers-by and luckily, a police van was passing by and they stopped to find out what the problem was. After listening to the man, they asked the child who owned the key and the boy replied that it was for the man so the police got suspicious and asked the man to pick up the key. He refused and was forced to. Immediately he picked the key,he turned into a brand new tricycle (keke maruwa)! Everybody ran away and even the police men were scared.

The tricycle was eventually pushed to the Pedro police station. This is a real life incidence and anyone in doubt can go to the Pedro police station to ascertain the authenticity of this post. When the man’s wife was called to the station, she said her husband comes home everyday with a brand new tricycle and gives it to people on higher purchase and she didn’t know where he got them from.

These ritualists are more desperate to make money and they device new means everyday but i pray that God will continue to protect our children and increase them in wisdom.

Mother of baby whose penis was cut off seeks help


Ladyambition meme blog 

OLUSOLA BABARINSA 
21 MAR 2017

Simon Utebor, Yenagoa

Mrs Eudora Michael, 35, mother of nine-month-old Oyintari, whose penis was cut off during an ill-fated circumcision, has cried out for help.

Eudora, who spoke on Monday at the Federal Medical Centre, Yenagoa, said her baby had been going through excruciating pain since the incident took place in February 2017.

She said doctors had told her that for the baby to lead a normal life, he needed a corrective plastic surgery to reconstruct his urinary system to enable him to pass urine normally.

For her, the family’s major setback is money to carry out the surgery hence they have resorted to seeking help from the government and kind-hearted individuals to save the life of the boy.

Eudora lamented that she and her husband were indigent and could not afford the specialised care the baby needed to stay alive.

She said, “Since this sad incident occurred in February this year, we have been running all over the place to raise money. We have borrowed from many places and now we are in big debt. My husband has gone to the village to get help but people are not forthcoming.

“Those who have given us loans are not willing to give us more since we have yet to pay what we borrowed before.

“As I speak, we are even surviving at the mercy of doctors who are spending their own money when they see that we are unable to provide the drugs they prescribe. The baby is in serious pains and always crying. He cannot urinate and his bladder is swollen.

“I have to stand near the bed or bend down to breastfeed him so that the pipes connected into his genitals do not shift and go off.”

She appealed to the wife of Bayelsa State Governor, Dr Rachael Dickson, and kind-hearted Nigerians to assist the family financially with medical bills to save her baby, saying her jobless husband had no means to settle the exorbitant medical bills they had incurred so far.

The baby, according to medical sources at the FMC, lost a lot of blood, but had been stabilised and might be scheduled for corrective plastic surgery to reconstruct the urinary system to enable him to pass urine normally.

Eudora accused her step-father, Mr Ziworitin Keke, 59, of allegedly deliberately cutting off her nine-month-old baby’s penis during circumcision.

It will be recalled that the incident occurred at Odenwari, a coastal community in Southern Ijaw Local Government Area of Bayelsa on February 5, 2017.

Eudora, a mother of eight children, four males and four females, noted that Oyintari was her first child to be circumcised by Keke.

She alleged that Keke cut off her child’s genitals out of “malice”.

She explained that the pain caused by the incident was too excruciating for a nine-month-old boy to bear.

She further alleged, “It is not a mistake at all as it’s being speculated. On that day, I was asleep and the man (Keke) sent a message that I should bring my baby for circumcision. Up till now, my husband is still angry with me because I didn’t tell him before taking my baby to Keke.

“My husband and I had no immediate plan to circumcise our baby on that day because he had been sick since birth. I carried the baby to him and he cut off his genitals completely after checking the length.

“I was disturbed because the baby cried much more than other babies that had been circumcised without complications. When I checked the boy, I saw the deep cut but Keke told me that the penis had shrunk inside and would come out after treatment.

“I was not convinced. I knew there was danger and I took my baby to a health centre outside our community at Krokrosei after he told me to leave the baby with him for three weeks.”

She alleged that her stepfather had earlier raped her 13-year-old girl and got her pregnant and the product of that act, a baby boy, is with her mother.

“But this time he wants my son to die,” she alleged.

According to her, the rape of her daughter was treated as a family matter and was not reported to the Police.

She, however, said the church where her step-father (Keke) functions as a clergyman suspended him for two years as a punishment because of the rape matter.

Meanwhile, the police authorities in Bayelsa on Monday confirmed the arrest of Keke.

The spokesman for the Bayelsa State Police Command, Mr Asinim Butswat , a deputy superintendent of Police, confirmed the development.

Fake news websites, which are also sometimes referred to as hoax news, try to give the impression that it is real news, often using social media to drive web traffic and amplify their effect. This is, in many cases, used for political gain, accusations in recent times have been the American Presidential election, allegedly by Russia trying to disseminate fake news as part of a broader effort to influence and undermine the election”. COMMENT Customers left angry as some Aldi crisps had only four in the packet German Discount Supermarket thought that it would be a good idea to provide some “own label” Monster Munch style crisps, and the customers also believed that it was good idea too, but what they got in the packet, left them disappointed and angry! The Aldi own label crisps are certainly cheaper, which is the reason so many mum’s with young children bought them, but some kids and their parents were in for a shock when it was found that when opened, the packets could often only contained as little as five “claws in the bag and for one mother, Rhian Green and her 13 year old son Bailey, just two crisps!

Anyone watching the incredible performances of the New Zealand “All Blacks” rugby team will testify that these are seriously big men, but fat they are not and as far as we are aware, they manage to secure their seat belts when in a car. COMMENT The Nokia 3310 is back complete with Snake! Another one of the worst kept secrets, certainly in the technology world, was revealed and it is true, the indestructible Nokia 3310 is back with us, unveiled at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on Sunday.

This rhyme contains a racist word that was commonly used in those times, but today, of course, it is considered to be insulting in the extreme and racist in context.

He has always been terrified of being buried alive and stated that the lid of the coffin should not be screwed down; that air holes should be bored in its ends and that the family vault should not be closed until one week after his coffin had been lowered into his grave.

Olamide Explains Meaning Of Pepper Dem Gang and Possible Career If Not Music (video)

Welcome to Ladymemeblog

Olamide Explains Meaning Of Pepper Dem Gang and Possible Career If Not Music (video)

Headies 2016 Best Street Pop Winner, Olamide, aka Baddo, has given an explanation of what his trending song Pepper Dem Gang means. The YBNL boss, who was speaking with entertainment channel, HipTV, said Pepper Dem Gang describes a state of success that goes beyond people’s expectations, the kind of success that makes people want to envy you. Hear him:

The celebrated Lagos state first son of music also gave a hint into what he would have been doing if not music. In his words:“If not music, I’ll be out there on the streets, hustling. You know…based on one or two kporlorkporlor”. What’s that? In the street hustling what? Thank God for music you will say, because there’s no job called street hustling that can put Olamide on the level he is now.

When it comes to creating street trends and slangs, Olamide is arguably the King of the moment. Even Falz will acknowledge this. But explaining the slangs will always be a difficult task as you can see from the video. The dude is saying something, but at the end you’ll still be left wondering “what is he saying?!”

Celeb Police cannot tell whether this explanation leaves you more confused or not. Lets know what you think.
