5:01 pm Malaika who is currently seen hosting “India’s Next Top Model Season 3” says that “for her FitToFight is a daily approach” (Source: File Photo) Top News Actress Malaika Arora says that she has been brought up in a household where she was always taught to express herself freely and this is what she expects from others too For her freedom of expression is essential for both men and women and change will happen if women start motivating each other When asked what motivates her girl squad that includes Kareena Kapoor Khan Karisma Kapoor and Amrita Arora to be fit to fight Malaika told IANS in an email interview from Mumbai: “Women should motivate each other and that is where change happens when women motivate each other when women uplift each other when women stand for each other “You know it that woman is your worse enemy a woman can pull you down so I think it’s important that women should motivate each other” Recalling one instance she said: “I remember an instance when after my baby I was going back to be fit again It was not an easy task for me it was a challenge I think every mother has to deal with it but the good thing was I had people around me to motivate me and push me to do better and I think that really helps” The mother of one who is a part of the Reebok Fashionably Fit Family was present at the brand’s FitToFight Awards 20 in Mumbai The night witnessed the brand felicitating women nominees from across the country for their spirit and courage Malaika who is currently seen hosting “India’s Next Top Model Season 3” says that “for her FitToFight is a daily approach” “It is not just about hitting a gym lifting weights touching the toes or bending It is a way of life It is physical mental and emotional Fitness is worship for me purely because it helps my mind body and soul” she said Talking about women’s rights the actress says that there are so many things that one needs to consider “There are so many issues that we women daily deal with on a regular basis I think it’s important to stand up for your rights fight for your rights to speak your mind because somewhere I feel a large part of us tends to be suppressed “We don’t speak out we don’t say and I sometimes even say that about myself ‘let it be forget about it’ because what’s the point but that’s wrong We have to change that attitude as we cannot sit back and say forget it what’s going to come out of it we will deal with it at a later point We need to deal with it in that moment and far more real and everyday basis” she said And that’s the reason why freedom of expression is very important “It is something which is our right its fundamental right that we have and luckily I have been brought up in a household where we have always been taught and encouraged to express ourselves very freely “We have never ever felt suppressed or felt like not say something that will hurt somebody It’s always been to speak your mind as that’s the only way that people will know what we want to say and I am glad that we have had that kind of upbringing” she said Malaika added: “My mother is someone who speaks her mind she doesn’t think twice and she is all for woman and woman power and I am again really glad that I have had that kind of an environment and I do have a son and yet I do tell him to speak his mind and if I would have a daughter I have said the same “For me there is no differentiation in a girl child or a boy child I am grateful that in today’s day and age thankfully most of us are like that Thanks to the education and the upbringing that we have got and there is no differentiation” For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: PTI | New Delhi | Published: April 22 2017 9:19 am Bharti Airtel led the subscriber growth adding 3

Pitching for an early approval to the proposal of providing in-flight Wi-Fi services over the Indian airspace the Assocham said that the move would not only enable the fliers stay connected even when they are mid-air but also improve flight safety The Assocham Secretary General D S Rawat in a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi has also said that various customer surveys findings also suggest that travellers expect to stay connected via their smart devices and laptops even while flying The copies of the letter have also been marked to Home Minister Rajnath Singh Civil Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapati Raju and Communication Minister Manoj Sinha Globally many airlines are already offering Wi-Fi for passengers but they currently have to switch off the facility when they enter the Indian airspace as such services and phone calls are not allowed on flights under the present regulations “In Flight Connectivity (IFC) promises to substantially improve safety of airlines as it enables flight tracking in respect of aircraft in near real time reporting latitude longitude altitude true heading and ground speed; streaming of flight data recorder off the aircraft in real time; and facilitating real time intervention for safety and security based on flight data monitoring” the Assocham said in the letter A large number of countries and airlines have already operationalised the in-flight connectivity the Assocham said in the letter adding even Sri Lanka Pakistan Bangladesh and Nepal have permitted IFC in planes over-flying their territory while India is yet to take any decision “As a result each time an aircraft equipped with IFC enters Indian air space it is forced to switch off the service to the passengers till it passes the Indian skies causing hardship to the passengers” Rawat said Significantly Raju had early this month told Parliament that “the department of telecommunications has already moved a proposal for providing in-flight connectivity for voice

three years in prison if the government has its way in replacing the Juvenile Justice Act of 2000 with a new law that has various new provisions for specific Acts (Source: PTI) Related News Parents guardians and schools teachers may very soon face a maximum of five years in jail for beating a child or verbally abusing him or inflicting any other form of corporal punishment Similarly ragging a fresher or junior in college may also fetch a maximum of three years in prison if the government has its way in replacing the Juvenile Justice Act of 2000 with a new law that has various new provisions for specific Acts The draft Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Bill 2014 seeks to introduce an array of special provisions in laws aiming at children’s rights and incorporating various international obligations and covenants into the legal framework The new proposed law about which Minister for Women and Child Development Maneka Gandhi informed the Lok Sabha Draft Bill proposes jail for beating abusing child on Friday has already been circulated for inter-ministerial consultation It makes corporal punishment an offence under a new provision in the Act After the Cabinet’s approval the Bill is likely to be introduced in Parliament The term “corporal punishment” shall include physical punishment as well as verbal abuses by any person and if a juvenile court holds such a person or institution guilty it may hand out a jail term extending up to six months along with fine for the first offence and a maximum of three years on second and subsequent conviction “In case the corporal punishment has caused grievous hurt or severe mental trauma to the child the person having committed the offence shall be liable for rigorous imprisonment of three years and fine of rupees fifty thousand and for subsequent conviction imprisonment which may extend to five years and shall also be liable to fine of rupees one lakh or both” the draft states If passed by both Houses of Parliament the new law will include India among the list of around 40 countries across the world which have absolutely prohibited corporal punishments and have made it a penal offence Another provision in the proposed law seeks to make ragging a penal offence punishable up to three years in jail if the acts of ragging have not only generated a sense of embarrassment for the victim but also caused grievous physical or mental injuries Expulsion of the perpetrator has been made mandatory Not only the students but also the managements of colleges and institutions have been made completely accountable under the proposed law The draft states: “In case where an incidence of ragging is reported in an institution and the management of such institution does not cooperate with any inquiry or comply with the orders of competent authority or court or state government the person in-charge of the management of the institution shall be liable for punishment with imprisonment for a term not less than three years and shall also be liable to a fine which may extend to one lakh rupees” Selling or procuring a child for any purpose using a child for vending peddling carrying supplying or smuggling any intoxicating liquor narcotic drug or psychotropic substances or making him use such substances using a child for terrorist activities are also among the offences that the government is looking to bring into the new law Notably Delhi judge Kamini Lau had recently pointed out absence of a specific law to make selling a child a penal offence while noting: “Children/infants are sold in adoption market/’bachcha baazar’ like potatoes tomatoes and onions” The proposed law seeks to make illegal adoption or transfer of a child an offence punishable up to seven years in jail It also gives a statutory status to the Central Adoption Resource Authority (CARA) to regulate adoptions keeping in view the best interest of the child All offences against any disabled child have been sought to attract twice the penalty that would otherwise be imposed The proposed law also seeks to usher in certain new principles as far as delinquent juveniles are concerned These principles include principle of presumption of innocence principle of dignity and worth principle of best interest principle of family responsibility and safety The most significant however appears to be the principle of participation wherein every child has been given “a right to be heard and to participate in all processes and decisions affecting his or her interest and the child’s views shall be taken into consideration with due regard to the age and maturity of the child” The new law also seeks to enact extraordinary provisions against children above the age of 16 but less than 18 committing heinous offences like rape murder acid attach kidnapping etc Under the new law a juvenile court will conduct an assessment of factors such as the “premeditated nature” of the offence “culpability” of the child and his “ability to understand the consequences of the offence” Based on the assessment such juveniles can be sent up to ordinary criminal court for trials but they cannot be sentenced to death or life imprisonment The Supreme Court had also recently objected to the blanket immunity to the juveniles under the age of 18 from criminal prosecution in grave cases underscoring there cannot be a “cut-off” date for serious crimes It had questioned the Attorney General as to why should those just under 18 committing “whatever offence: rape murder NDPS (drug cases) go exonerated on the ground of juvenility” PROPOSED PROVISIONS Corporal punishment to be a specific offence entailing a maximum of five years in jail Ragging to be made an offence and adult students may get three years in prison besides compulsory expulsion from college In-charge of institutions not co-operating with inquiry into ragging may get at least three years in jail Selling or procuring a child using a child for vending peddling carrying supplying or smuggling liquor narcotic drug or psychotropic substances or making him use such substances to entail a jail term of maximum seven years
