Sister Alphonsa

Who was Sister Alphonsa?

Sister Alphonsa

Till a few days back, very few people outside Kerala would have heard of Sister Alphonsa. But now, almost 100 years after her birth, she will be canonised by the Vatican.

The Sister became the blessed Alphonsa after her beatification in Kottayam in 1986 by Pope John Paul II; and once a miracle was attributed to her, the path to sainthood was clear.

Sister’s short life – she died at the age of 36 – was full of physical suffering. Her followers believe that she performed miracles during her lifetime, but it was really after her death that her movement towards sainthood gathered momentum. (Watch)

She was buried at Bharananganam, at a graveyard that was later turned into a chapel. And the faithful truly believe that if they pray here, she will intercede on their behalf.

In the run up to Sister Alphonsa’s canonisation, crowds have been pouring in to this shrine. They believe the woman buried here can intercede with God and they attribute miracles to her help.

But who is this woman who can inspire such devotion and faith?

The young Anna, known to her family as Annakutty, lost her mother within weeks of her birth in 1910. She was brought up at the affluent family home of her maternal aunt.

Kiranjit Ahluwalia


Kiranjit Ahluwalia

Kiranjit Ahluwalia
A young woman aged 20 was recently released from prison following a drastic reduction in her sentence for murdering her partner by claiming that she had been abused.

There’s no point in describing here, yet again, the disgraceful way in which daytime TV programmes continue to promote violence against men – but, basically, the female audience applauded this woman for murdering her partner.

Yes. It never stops!

But you may be interested in some of the things that this woman said. I quote her verbatim.

This is the account of the events that apparently took place. Though, of course, we must remember that we only have her side of the story, because her partner is dead.

“A fight broke out. A very violent fight. He kept on strangling me. I retaliated back. I tried to defend myself by holding a knife, and saying, ‘stay away from me’ and to my surprise, he had a knife too. So it was a no-go situation. So I ended up throwing my knife away to try to calm down the situation. He threw his knife at me, and as I followed it, and put my hand upon it to defend myself, he hit me. And I fell backwards. I tried to catch him as I was falling and I stabbed him as I was falling. I didn’t even realise.”

David Reimer


David Reimer
David Reimer
was born an identical (non-intersex) twin boy in 1965. At the age of 8 months, David and his brother each had a minor medical problem involving his penis, and a doctor decided to treat the problem with circumcision. The doctor botched the circumcision on David, using an inappropriate method and accidentally burning off virtually all of David’s penis. At the advice of psychologist John Money at Johns Hopkins University, David’s parents agreed to have him “sex reassigned” and made into a girl via surgical, hormonal, and psychological treatments—i.e., via the system Money advocated for intersex children.

For many years, John Money claimed that David (known in the interim as “Brenda”) turned out to be a “real” girl with a female gender identity. Money used this case to bolster his approach to intersex —the approach that is still used throughout much of the U.S. and developed world—one that relies on the assumption that gender identity is all about nurture (upbringing), not nature (inborn traits), and that gender assignment is the key to treating all children with atypical sex anatomies.

What is a Common Factor

What is a “Common Factor” ?

It is a common factor if it is a factor of two or more numbers – it is then “common to” those numbers.

For example, if you work out the factors of two different numbers (say 12 and 30) the common factors are those that are found in both numbers:
The factors of 12 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 and 12
The factors of 30 are 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 10, 15 and 30

Notice that 1,2,3 and 6 appear in both lists? So, the common factors of 12 and 30 are: 1, 2, 3 and 6

Steve Jobs Heart Attack


Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs Heart Attack
Apple has denied a rumor posted on CNN’s iReport page that Steve Jobs suffered a heart attack Friday morning.

The unsubstantiated rumor, posted on the “citizen journalism” section of CNN called iReport, caused a sharp drop in Apple‘s stock price around 7 a.m. PDT before company representatives were able to deny the charge. Blogs such as Silicon Alley Insider initially published the rumor as written on CNN with the 21st century fig leaf–a question mark at the end of the headline–but updated its story after hearing from Apple representatives. CNN has since removed the post in question.

Gwen Ifill

Gwen Ifill
Obama Book

The upcoming debate between Vice Presidential candidates Sarah Palin and Joe Biden hasn’t even occurred yet and it already has its first controversy. It seems that Gwen Ifill, the PBS reporter who will moderate the debate is in the tank for Barack Obama.

This should not be too surprising. Most journalists in the mainstream media are as much in love with Barack Obama as the giddy college students who used to swoon at his rallies. Gwen Ifill works for PBS, hardly a hotbed of McCain support. But it seems that Gwen Ifill has not only an ideological interest in an Obama victory, but a financial stake as well.

Gwen Ifill is coming out with a book, entitled The Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama, a book describing the state of black politics in the modern age, as the civil rights generation starts to give way to a generation of African Americans who benefited from the civil rights struggle and never lived under Jim Crow and segregation.

1930 Mahatma Gandhi Started The Civil Disobedience Movement


Civil Disobedience Movement

Civil Disobedience Movement launched in 1930 under MK Gandhi’s leadership was one of the most important phases of India’s freedom struggle. The simon commission, constituted in November 1927 by the British Government to prepare and finalize a constitution for India and consisting of members of the British Parliament only, was boycotted by all sections of the Indian social and political platforms as an ‘All-White Commission’. The opposition to the Simon Commission in Bengal was remarkable. In protest against the Commission, a hartal was observed on 3 February 1928 in various parts of the province. Massive demonstrations were held in Calcutta on 19 February1928, the day of Simon’s arrival in the city. On 1 March 1928, meetings were held simultaneously in all thirty-two wards of Calcutta urging people to renew the movement for boycott of British goods.

Dandi March

Dandi March


Dandi March – Mahatma Gandhi

(11-3-1930)

[On the 11th of March 1930, the crowd swelled to 10,000 at the evening prayer held on the Sabarmati sands at Ahmedabad. At the end, Gandhiji delivered a memorable speech on the eve of his historic march:]

In all probability this will be my last speech to you. Even if the Government allow me to march tomorrow morning, this will be my last speech on the sacred banks of the Sabarmati. Possibly these may be the last words of my life here.

I have already told you yesterday what I had to say. Today I shall confine myself to what you should do after my companions and I are arrested. The programme of the march to Jalalpur must be fulfilled as originally settled. The enlistment of the volunteers for this purpose should be confined to Gujarat only. From what I have been and heard during the last fortnight, I am inclined to believe that the stream of civil resisters will flow unbroken.

But let there be not a semblance of breach of peace even after all of us have been arrested. We have resolved to utilize all our resources in the pursuit of an exclusively nonviolent struggle. Let no one commit a wrong in anger. This is my hope and prayer. I wish these words of mine reached every nook and corner of the land. My task shall be done if I perish and so do my comrades. It will then be for the Working Committee of the Congress to show you the way and it will be up to you to follow its lead. So long as I have reached Jalalpur, let nothing be done in contravention to the authority vested in me by the Congress. But once I am arrested, the whole responsibility shifts to the Congress. No one who believes in non-violence, as a creed, need, therefore, sit still. My compact with the Congress ends as soon as I am arrested. In that case volunteers. Wherever possible, civil disobedience of salt should be started. These laws can be violated in three ways. It is an offence to manufacture salt wherever there are facilities for doing so. The possession and sale of contraband salt, which includes natural salt or salt earth, is also an offence. The purchasers of such salt will be equally guilty. To carry away the natural salt deposits on the seashore is likewise violation of law. So is the hawking of such salt. In short, you may choose any one or all of these devices to break the salt monopoly.

Swaraj Is My Birth Right

Lokamanya Balgangadhar Tilak

Swaraj Is My Birth Right and I shall have it!” were the fiery words of Tilak which roused a sleeping nation to action, making Indian people aware of their political plight under a foreign rule. Tilak did not question the British Sovereignty nor his demands rebellious or revolutionary. All he was asking was favorable conditions in India, to enable people to learn to govern themselves. May be all over the world, the separatist forces should follow his vision and define freedom as ability to govern one’s land. But the handful rulers who ruled India’s millions thought otherwise. They thought that Tilak was whipping a rebellion and he was imprisoned twice; two years for the first and six during the second. They said, he had committed treason.

Glenn Mcduffie

Glenn Edward Mcduffie knows why the sailor kissing a white-clad nurse in that famous photo has his wrist bent back in an awkward position. Glenn knows why that sailor has his wrist twisted because he is that sailor. Glenn had come to New York after coming off the SS Alexander Lillinton with Jack Holmes (from Pittsburg), the sailor in the dark uniform seen laughing in that same photo. Glenn also knows the sailor in the white uniform’s name is Bob Little from Buffalo, New York since he also served on the same ship. 1
