Er zijn weer kinderen het slachtoffer geworden van het onverantwoordelijke rijgedrag van de Hindoestanen

NEW DELHI: Indian police said that at least 12 children were killed and 10 other students were injured when a school bus collided with a brick-laden truck in Jallandhar district in the northern state on Monday morning.

The incident took place when a school bus carrying nearly 30 children was taking the students to their private school crashed with a brick-laden truck on the outskirts of Jalandhar, said police officer Harmeet Singh.

Seven children died at the scene of the accident and further five succumbed to their injuries in a hospital, Singh said. The extent of their injuries was not known.

Police were looking for the truck driver, who fled after the accident, he added.

India has the world’s deadliest roads, with more than 110,000 people killed every year.
Most crashes are blamed on reckless driving,  poorly maintained roads and aging vehicles.

About 110,000 people were killed in Indian road accidents in 2011 — more than 300 every day — according to the National Crime Records Bureau. Bad roads, speeding vehicles and poor driving were among the contributing factors.

In neighbouring Nepal, also known for its treacherous roads, at least 15 people were killed and 25 injured when a bus carrying passengers returning from a wedding veered off a narrow mountain road.

The vehicle tumbled 250 metres (820 feet) down a steep hill on Sunday evening after the driver lost control, Sthaneswar Regmi, district superintendent of police in central Palpa district, told AFP.

He said that both the bride and the groom were injured but their lives were not threatened. The driver, who died in the crash, was thought to have been drinking before setting out.

Dronken bestuurders zijn een van de hoofdoorzaken van de vele dodelijke ongelukken


India has the highest number of road accidents in the world

Road accidents have earned India a dubious distinction. With over 130,000 deaths annually, the country has overtaken China and now has the worst road traffic accident rate worldwide.

This has been revealed by the World Health Organization (WHO) in its first ever Global Status Report on Road


Safety. The report pointed to speeding, drunk driving and low use of helmets, seat belts and child restraints in vehicles as the main contributing factors.

Every hour, 40 people under the age of 25 die in road accidents around the globe. According to the WHO, this is the second most important cause of death for 5 to 29 year olds.

A bus fell from a bridge into a dry riverbed in northwestern India last month, killing at least 26 students and teachers on board A bus fell from a bridge into a dry riverbed in northwestern India last month, killing at least 26 students and teachers on board

In India alone, the death toll rose to 14 per hour in 2009 as opposed to 13 the previous year. The total number of deaths every year due to road accidents has now passed the 135,000 mark, according to the latest report of National Crime Records Bureau or NCRB.

While trucks and two-wheelers were responsible for over 40 per cent of deaths, peak traffic during the afternoon and evening rush hours is the most dangerous time to be on the roads.

Drunken driving is a major factor

The NCRB report further states that drunken driving was a major factor for road accidents. Joint Commissioner of Police Maxwell Perreira maintains that there has to be a change in drivers' mindsets.

Trucks are responsible for many road accidents in India Trucks are responsible for many road accidents in India

"Most of the city accidents are not necessarily out of drunken driving," says Pereira. "But 99 per cent of the accidents, the fatal accidents that occur outside the cities are due to drunken driving and there is no check on this kind of drunken driving. Unfortunately, truck drivers think they are fully armed to drive on the highway when they are fully drunk! Until and unless this country comes up with a new method of checking drunkenness on the highways, I don't think these fatalities can be lessened."

Inefficient law enforcement

Prince Singhal, founder of the Campaign Against Drunken Driving (CADD), a decade-old movement with support across the country, says the increase in fatal accidents only proves the lack of concern on the part of state governments and police towards the problem of drunken driving.

"It's growing day by day because liquor is a state subject and its happening everywhere in the country, not just Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Hyderabad and metro towns. There is an ineffective law, there is no judicial procedure, there is no enforcement by the police, no specific segment where they can book people under drunk driving."

Veel aparte dingen zijn daar te zien
Zoals een man met staart


13-inch Tailed Man (Chandre Oram - India)

With a 13-inch tail, Chandre Oram, a tea-estate worker, has become quite an object of devotion in his native Alipurduar, West Bengal and believes that Hanuman is manifest in him. "I was born on Ram Navami (birthday of Lord Ram). People have a lot of faith in me - they get cured of severe ailments when they touch my tail. I believe I can do a lot of good to those who come to me with devotion," says the man, before whom thousands of people queue up each day to seek blessings. In a corner of the courtyard of his home, Oram has set up a small Hanuman temple, where he receives offerings on Ram Navami, which he later offers to the deity.



On 2006, this baby was born with a only one eye in India. Medical staff who helped deliver the child believe that the child's condition was caused by an experimental anti-cancer drug. Another cause written in the report by the hospital was that it could also be the result of a chromosomal disorder. The child was diagnosed with a rare chromosomal disorder, known as cyclopia. She was born with a single eye in the center of her forehead, no nose and her brain fused into a single hemisphere. With such severe deformities, it was a miracle that the girl survived even a few minutes after delivery. The baby died days later.

Wicked Father Bites Off His 5-Month-Old Daughter’s Nose Because She Cries Too Much

indian womanLittle Radha can’t be fed normally and may not be able to speak properly unless she undergoes extensive plastic surgery – because her nose and upper lip have been bitten off.

The man who did this to the five-month-old was her own father, Bhadar Singh, a farm labourer in Siyana village of the Bikaner district in Rajasthan.

The father chewed off his daughter’s lips and nose because he was angered by her crying. He has been arrested and booked under various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) for causing grievous hurt with dangerous means, which provide for a sentence ranging from 10 years in jail up to life imprisonment.

According to the police, Bhadar, 36, came home drunk on Thursday January 24 around 10pm when his wife Santosh and his sister Saroj were applying mehendi (henna) to their hands.

He asked his wife to do some work. Showing him her hands, she said she wasn’t able to, at which Bhadar started abusing and beating her. When Saroj protested, he warned her against intervening. But seeing her mother being assaulted, their elder daughter, three-year old Bhanwar Kanwar, started crying.

This angered the drunken Bhadar, who duly turned his fury on Bhanwar. He is accused of biting the toddler on her back, hands and other body parts before throwing her on the ground.

Baby Radha was asleep in another room, but was woken up by her sister’s screams and began crying. Her father then started biting his younger child. Horrified, his wife and sister ran out to raise the alarm. The neighbours then rushed in and grabbed Bhadar, who was handed over to the police on Friday morning.

Radha and Bhanwar were taken to the government-run Prince Bijay Singh Memorial (PBSM) Hospital in Bikaner.

Dr Girish Prabhakar, head of the paediatric surgery department of the hospital, said that although Radha was out of danger, she would have to undergo extensive, drastic plastic surgery. “We are treating her, but to look normal she would require plastic surgery, which can be done only in Jaipur,” he added.

Radha, accompanied by her mother Santosh and a few volunteers, was sent to Jaipur’s Sawai Man Singh Hospital in an ambulance on Friday. But Santosh returned to PBSM and couldn’t give explain why she had brought her daughter back, Dr Prabhakar said.

He said the Bikaner hospital authorities would try to coordinate with the Jaipur doctors to ensure proper treatment for the baby.

Die in het rood is sterk hoor



It has been called the biggest wave of human suicides in recorded history.

Every 30 minutes a farmer in India commits suicide, crushed — say human-rights activists — by debt, moneylenders and the destructive policies associated with the introduction of expensive genetically modified cotton seed.

Prince Charles has spoken of the “truly appalling and tragic rate of small farmer suicides in India, stemming in part from the failure of many GM crop varieties.” Britain’s Daily Mail called it “The GM genocide.”

Except linking suicides to GM seeds is simply not true.

“The issue of farmer suicides is not just entirely a farmer issue, or rural issue, or a village issue — it is a much more broader political-economic problem,” said Raju Das, a developmental studies professor at York University.

Delhi de meest vrouw onvriendelijke stad ter wereld

96% women feel unsafe after sunset in Delhi:


Nine out of 10 women in the national capital feel that Delhi is unsafe or very unsafe for them. Two-thirds have experienced misbehaviour on the city's streets. Two-thirds work in offices where there is no mechanism to deal with sexual harassment. Close to half feel they were discriminated against during the division of parental property.

These are some of the findings of a survey commissioned by TOI on the public and private lives of Delhi's women. The survey clearly shows that while some things may be changing at home and at the workplace, the city still poses significant challenges to a woman. The survey interviewed women across age groups and included both the main city and its satellites.

With this survey, TOI is also kicking off a campaign, 'Delhi For Women', which will look into different aspects of a woman's life and engagement with the city. While safety, in the shadow of the death of Nirbhaya and continuing instances of sexual assault, remains a major consideration, this campaign will not stop there. It will identify various problems that the women of Delhi face - whether during the commute, at work, home or leisure. We hope this will act as a first step towards finding solutions to these problems. Eventually, we hope Delhi will rid itself of the image of being the most unsafe city for women in India.

There is suddenly, energy around changing the status quo. The energy was most evident in the protests that followed Nirbhaya's gangrape, but the impact thankfully lingers.

The capital may have the reputation of being India's most unsafe city for women, but the protests against sexual assault that have rocked the country and forced the government to enact new legislation were also led by Delhi's women. In their fight to demand what is rightfully theirs and to reclaim a city that is equally theirs, The Times of India joins hands with Delhi's women.

India Rail Track Deaths Amount To 15,000 Each Year

Tel daarbij op 110,000 verkeersdoden per jaar, en elke 30 minuten pleegt een boer zelfmoord

NEW DELHI -- About 15,000 people die every year trying to cross the tracks of India's mammoth rail network, a "massacre" that a government committee said was being ignored by railway authorities.

The safety panel said new bridges and overpasses were urgently needed, but it noted previous recommendations to make the world's fourth largest railway system safer had been ignored. Its report noted that railway authorities were unwilling to view the deaths of people hit by trains while crossing the tracks as train accidents.

Most of the deaths occur at unmanned railroad crossings, said the report released over the weekend. About 6,000 people die on Mumbai's crowded suburban rail network alone.

Another 1,000 people die when they fall from crowded coaches, when trains collide or coaches derail, it said.

India's 40,000 miles (64,000 kilometers) of railway track cut through some of the most densely populated cities, flanked by shanty towns, in the nation of 1.2 billion people.

Kinderhuwelijken schandalig


RAJASTHAN, India -- Every year, millions of Indian girls are married as children. In some instances the brides are no more than 4 or 5 years old.

Child marriages are illegal in India, but the practice is flourishing.

Rajasthan is the epicenter of India's child marriage. More than half of girls born in the area become child brides before the age of 15.

"The life of a child bride is very sad," said Prem Dabi, who's studying the impact of child marriage on Indian society.

"The moment she gets married, from a physical, mental, emotional and educational perspective, her life becomes very challenging," Dabi added.

Most of India's rural poor live on less than a dollar a day. Marrying off a daughter means one less mouth to feed.

See behind the scenes photos from this story on George Thomas' Facebook page.  While you're there, share reaction to his report on India's #childbrides.

Dinesh Shur is a village pastor.

"Girls are seen as a liability and burden," Shur explained. "The girl's family is responsible for the paying [of] the dowry, so the longer they wait to get the girl married off, the more they'll have to pay the future-in-laws."

Secret Weddings

April and May are popular months for marriages in Rajasthan. Villages will hold thousands of ceremonies, the majority of them between minors.

Corruptie in India

Corruption in India is indeed a major issue which does affects India's economy. It is dragging the whole country down. The more the corruption, the slower the economic growth.

According to the latest study, India has been ranked 94th out of 176 countries in corruption. From time to time, Indian media has widely published allegations of corrupt Indian citizens stashing trillions of dollars in Swiss banks. It ranges from embezzlement of public money to abuse of power i.e., demanding bribes! "Show me the money, and your work is all done" -- that's what corruption in India is all about!

Bribery exists in several countries and in many different forms, but corruption in India is a past time. The corruption is so deeply rooted in India that it has not spared even the justice system of the country. Corruption has a severe negative impact on the economy of the country. Besides, it maligns the image of the nation in the international world.

The best example is the recent Commonwealth Games scam. The event is a global phenomenon and owing to the presence of International ambassadors and media, the event brought disgrace to India.

In the final analysis, it is one of the deadliest growing and non-curable disease, it is like cancer which is hard to cure, unless it is detected in its early stage. The biggest danger is that by not tackling this problem soon enough, corruption will become the routine and the norm.

Onbetwiste nummer 1 corrupte Hindoestaan



DMK leader M Kanimozhi is also an accused in the case.


The 2G spectrum scam involved politicians and government officials in India illegally undercharging mobile telephony companies for frequency allocation licenses, which they would then use to create 2G subscriptions for cell phones. The shortfall between the money collected and the money which the law mandated to be collected is estimated to be Rs.1,76,645 crore, as valued by the Comptroller and Auditor General of India based on 3G and BWA spectrum auction prices in 2010.  India is divided into 22 telecom zones, with 281 zonal licenses in the market. According to the telecom policy of India, when a licence is allotted to an operator, some start-up spectrum is bundled along with it. In 2008, 122 new second-generation (2G) Unified Access Service (UAS) licences were given to telecom companies at a price arrived at in 2001 and on a first-come-first-serve basis.

Confusion over India inquiry into rape of Swiss woman

Several people are being questioned over the attack in Madhya Pradesh but no formal arrests have been made, Inspector General SM Azfal said.

He denied statements by junior officers that five men had confessed to involvement in the crime.

The woman was attacked as she camped with her husband in woodland.

The couple had stopped at a village in Datia district on Friday, while making a cycling trip.

A group of men overpowered her husband before gang-raping her. The couple were also robbed of their valuables.

Police reportedly detained at least 20 people after the attack.

The case is getting front-page coverage in the Indian media and the Swiss embassy has called for a swift investigation, the BBC's Andrew North reports from the capital, Delhi.

The incident comes three months after the gang-rape and murder of a 23-year-old female student on a bus in Delhi, which triggered widespread protests against the treatment of women in India.
'Husband beaten'

After the attack, the rape victim underwent a medical examination at a local hospital before leaving for Delhi with her husband, police said.

Another police official, DK Arya, told AP news agency the couple had said seven or eight men had taken part in the rape, but that it was dark and they could not be sure of the exact number.

The victim, who is reported to be 39 years old, and her husband had been cycling from Orchha to Agra, to see the Taj Mahal, a distance of about 250km (155 miles), when they decided to camp for the night in a forested area.

One report cited the victim's husband as saying that the group of men had approached them at about 21:30 (16:00 GMT). They then began beating him with wooden sticks before tying him up and sexually assaulting his wife in front of him, he is reported to have added.

The assailants stole the couple's valuables, including 10,000 rupees ($185) and a laptop computer, before fleeing into the woods.
