They used more than a dozen helicopters and about 400 boats across the state, relief officials said. Heavy rains over the past nine days triggered flooding, landslides and home and bridge collapses, severely disrupting air and train services in Kerala state, a popular tourist destination with scenic landscapes, waterfalls and beautiful beaches.

Who is our new prime minister Scott Morrison?

SCOTT Morrison has been leader-in-waiting for years, and today he was elected as leader of the Liberal Party and is now Australia?s 30th Prime Minister. Mr Morrison, or ScoMo, as he is often called, was officially sworn in to the role after winning a Liberal party room ballot defeating Peter Dutton 45 votes to 40. The son of a police officer, Mr Morrison?s hardworking character and leadership potential have long been noted by his colleagues. As one influential MP told the Australian Women?s Weekly back in 2015, before Malcolm Turnbull challenged Tony Abbott for the leadership: ?If we lose the next election, Scott Morrison will be leader.? Lately, Mr Morrison had thrown his support behind Mr Turnbull, although he did express interest in the top job after the now-ousted prime minister ?s poor Newspoll performances. He told the ABC in April he would not pursue his ambitions while Mr Turnbull remained in the role, insisting Mr Turnbull was the right person to lead the party not just to the next election ?but beyond?. But the then treasurer said he would be interested ?down the track, if an opportunity presented itself ?. Mr Morrison?s time finally came this week when he sought support for a leadership tilt after three senior ministers publicly stated that Mr Turnbull longer enjoyed the confidence of the Liberal Party. After studying a Bachelor of Science, Mr Morrison went on to work in the property and tourism industries. He held positions at the Property Council of Australia, the Australian Tourism Task Force, Tourism Australia and then the Office of Tourism and Sport in New Zealand. When he returned to Australia he became director of the NSW Liberal Party in 2000 before taking a job running Tourism Australia in 2004 where he was involved in the controversial ?Where the bloody hell are you?? campaign. Mr Morrison entered politics in 2007, winning preselection in the seat of Cook in Sydney?s Sutherland Shire where the Cronulla race riots took place two years before. Mr Morrison?s appointment will be seen as a continuation of the Turnbull Government. He was tipped to run in Mr Turnbull?s place, rather than against him.

In dia?s Su pr em e Cou r t st r ik es dow n law t h at pu n ish ed gay sex IN A landmark victory for gay rights, India?s Supreme Court has struck down a colonial-era law that made gay sex punishable by up to 10 years in prison.

A COLONIAL-ERA law that made gay sex punishable by up to 10 years in prison has been struck down by India?s Supreme Court. One judge said Thursday?s landmark victory for gay rights would ?pave the way for a better future?. The 1861 law, a relic of Victorian England that hung on long after the end of British colonialism, was a weapon used to discriminate against India?s gay community, the judges ruled in a unanimous decision. ?Constitutional morality cannot be martyred at the altar of social morality,? Chief Justice Dipak Misra said, reading the verdict. ?Social morality cannot be used to violate the fundamental rights of even a single individual.? As the news spread, the streets outside the courthouse erupted in cheers as opponents of the law danced and waved flags. ?We feel as equal citizens now,? said activist Shashi Bhushan. ?What happens in our bedroom is left to us.? In its ruling, the court said sexual orientation was a ?biological phenomenon? and that discrimination on that basis violated fundamental rights. ?We cannot change history but can pave a way for a better future,? said Justice D.Y. Chandrachud. The law known as Section 377 held that intercourse between members of the same sex was against the order of nature. The five petitioners who challenged the law said it was discriminatory and led to gay people living in fear of harassment and persecution. Jessica Stern, the executive director of the New York-based rights group Out Right Action International, said the original law had reverberated far beyond India, including in countries where gay people still struggled for acceptance.

Ben ef it s of M edit at ion Nowadays many people are turning to meditation to seek peace and balance in life. While my visit towards Himalayas, I visited few monasteries. I was astonished to see that western people are more interested in reading Indian spiritual works, learning Yoga and practicing meditation very seriously. They have great respect for all this and practice with more consistency than us.Still many of us are not having clear concepts regarding meditation. As we see the world around us with our outer physical eyes; meditation is like seeing and connecting with the inner world with our inner eyes that is consciousness. This may look funny and strange in the beginning because we are so addicted to looking outside ourselves. We have lost access to our inner being almost completely. We are terrified to look inward because we never got training to develop a relationship with our own self. We are trained since childhood how to develop moral qualities and develop relationships with family, friends and the society. We are never told to spend some time with ourself alone, introspect our thoughts and emotions and connect with our own uniqueness.Many of us may even think that if we meditate we will be in danger of madness. We are usually told that to enter into the world of meditation means cutting yourself from the main stream and renouncing the world and the worldly things. So to prevent this we make our lives so hectic that we eliminate the slightest risk of looking into ourselves. In reality this is a great myth. Rather meditation brings a perfect balance in material and spiritual world. Einstein had scientifically explained how if we break one atom, it breaks all other atoms around it - called an atomic explosion. Our Rishis and Munis had said the same thing thousands of years ago-that is even four percent of the people on this planet do meditation that the rest ninety six percent will automatically come in bliss.Maharishi Mahesh Yogi proved this to scientists to Washington DC and made them for one month. Due to this one month of meditation, the crime rate of Washington DC came down by fifty percent. The scientists could not understand it and named it "The Maharishi Effect". Another example of Buddhist meditation is proved by US scientists. The research at the University of Wisconsin Madison has shown that in experienced Buddhists, the brain's 'happiness centre ' is constantly alive with electrical signals. The study team scanned the brains of people who had been practicing Buddhist meditation for several years, looking particularly at areas important for emotion, mood and temperament. They found that the left side - the happiness centre - was consistently and highly active in Buddhist meditaters.These findings may eventually allow researchers to develop meditation techniques as treatments for depressive illnesses. The benefit of meditation is the purification of being. Through meditation you can purify your undesirable and negative thoughts.We all have preconceptions and point of view.We not only have ideas but we have opinions and countless judgements ,especially about other people.Meditation is perhaps the most helpful tool for working with the mind. The meditation helps in calming the mind. As when we meditate on the breath the thoughts that arise in the mind are observed without interacting with them. After some time when the chaos of thoughts is settled down then a spaciousness or clarity of mind can be experienced by the meditaters.Thus the mind is purified and peace and happiness is attained. Meditation reduces stress and control anxiety. This also helps recovering from health issues such as high blood pressure and depression.Meditation promotes emotional health as it leads to an improved self image and more positive outlook on life. Meditation helps in developing better understanding of ourself by enhancing self awareness. This also increase concentration, focus and memory. Other benefits of meditation is overcoming fears, sorrow, worry and grief. We usually have a habit of grieving over the past of worrying or fear of future by thinking about the future life. Thus we hardly stay or enjoy the present life. Meditation is a great tool to stay in the present moment that is "Being Here and Now ".This is the power of meditation that lies in our consciousness. When you will do meditation for three months then you see amazing change in your self and in your life. You will also see great material and spiritual development through meditation. All you have to do is meditate and discover the power within you.

Wow ! A St at u e of Sr idevi t o Be In st alled in Sw it zer lan d In a marked departure with norms, the Swiss government has declared that they are going to install a statue of Sridevi in their country. The Switzerland authorities are planning to install a statue of the late actress whose super-hit movie Chandni was shot at the country's picturesque locations. The statue of the renowned Indian filmmaker, Yash Chopra, was unveiled in Interlaken in 2016. "Many of Chopra's films featured Switzerland as a backdrop and he is credited with boosting the popularity of the Alpine nation among Indian tourists. Now, considering Sridevi's role in promoting tourism here, there is a proposal to honour the actor by having her statue here," a senior official familiar with the development told Hindustan Times. The 1989 blockbuster Chandni had also put Switzerland on centre stage as almost half the song and dance sequences in the film had a Swiss backdrop. Raj Kapoor 's 1964 film Sangam was the first Indian film shot in Switzerland, which was followed by An Evening in Paris in 1967. Since then Bollywood made Switzerland their favourite shooting location paving way to cement the image of the country's alpine scenery as a romantic paradise for Indians. "However, for many Indian tourists visiting the country today, it is Chopra's 1995 production Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge that is their Swiss point of reference. Interestingly, for the tourists who happen to be cinema fanatics, there is also a provision to arrange Bollywood packaged trips here," the official added to Hindustan Times.

Lit er acy an d Em ot ion al Developm en t in Ch ildr en Learning to read and write is a crucial part of a child?s development. What this means is that people can understand and follow written instructions, find out information online or in books, write letters and emails, and send text messages. It also means that a child or adult is able to participate fully in their education and learning. How do children learn to read and write and what are the best ways to get children to learn to read and write? This is a hotly debated topic. Research has foundthat there are three essential skillschildren need to help them learn toread and write. First, is phonological awareness. This skill involves an understanding that words are made up of sounds and in order to read we need to hear these sounds. Second, is phonics. This relates to learning that letters represent sounds and that children need to remember the sound of eachletter quickly and easily to be able to speak or write. Third, is the understanding that written words can be understood and when written in a particular order can mean different things. Why do some children have difficulties with reading and writing?Research has shown that about 10% of school children haveproblems with reading and writing.There are a number of reasons why some children have trouble reading and writing. For example, some children may be learning English as a second language. These children will generally catch up as they put in more practice and become more skilled in English. Furthermore, children have difficulties in reading and writing when schooling in interrupted during the crucial early years when reading and writing skills are developing. It is also possible that literacy development is hindered due to learning or intellectual difficulties or due to underlying speech and or language difficulty. Difficulties in learning to read and write have a major impact on a child?s schooling, their ability to form friendships, and self-esteem. There are certain signs that parents need to look out for to see whether their child has problems with literacy. Some of the signs during the early years of a child?s development include being late in starting to talk; having difficulty in learning and remembering new words; finding it difficult to provide simple information clearly; needing instructions to be simplified; not being able to recognise the alphabet; and showing no interest in listening to stories. During the early school years your child may have difficulty in developing confidence with letters and sounds and may not want to have a go at spelling; they may be mispronouncing several long words; have immature grammar; not being able to read grade appropriate texts fluently and accurately; have trouble reading ?between the lines?; and have difficulty in developing the skills to tell the stories and give explanations. This can be linked to social difficulties and feeling left out with other children, behaviour problems, poor communication, and not participating in class activities. A lot of parents ask us when should they get help for literacy problems and emotional difficulties? It is very essential to intervene early and provide the children with the help they need. If your child is showing any of thesepotential problems, please see a speechpathologist, psychologist, or your GP and paediatrician if there are underlying developmental difficulties for the problems at hand.
