Lingerie capital of Brazil feels the pinch as recession deepens 26.7.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page

The hillside town of Nova Friburgo is home to 1,300 registered underwear retailers and manufacturers but small producers are suffering in the downturn

In an empty shop, on a deserted street, under the shadow of a billboard bearing the image of a 50ft woman in bra and knickers, Fátima Vieira is reconsidering her choice of career.

Girls around town 26.5.2015 Asian Age: Books
Books for the modern Indian woman are walking the talk. Games Girls Play is the latest addition to the sexy chick lit trend Slut walks, pink chaddis — on the face of it, the urban Indian woman has changed. She talks sexy, walks sexy and isn’t averse to confessing that she drinks or flaunting her bootie in a LBD. Which is why the books for the modern Indian woman are walking the talk as well. Games Girls Play is the latest addition to the sexy chick lit trend. Aastha Atray Banan sets her novel in Mumbai — the capital of sex and style — and puts two very different girls face to face. The hot and happening Natasha who works as a photographer and the staid, shy Siya who runs a library in an ancient Bandra bungalow and writes Sex in the City style pieces for the papers. Siya has one problem though — she’s a virgin, believes in love and needs to get real with her pieces on the modern Indian girl otherwise they won’t get published. Natasha trots into her bungalow and looks around for a suggestive book, and Siya ...

PETA's Cruel and Unusual Crush 26.4.2015 Truthout.com
The provocative animal rights group PETA famously despises cages. Press statements from the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals have described birdcages as a “ death sentence ” for avian pets, likened crating dogs to incarcerating them , and condemned the cruelty of fencing animals into tiny spaces on factory farms. So the group’s latest role model — a man who cages people for a living — makes no sense to me. In fact, Joe Arpaio, the hardline anti-immigrant sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona, prides himself on making jail a miserable place to be. Why would PETA ever pal around with this guy? Because Arpaio took meat off his inmates’ menu. PETA was so supportive of the change that it dispatched former Baywatch star Pamela Anderson to visit Arpaio’s county jail and show support for the vegetarian menus. Bad move. First, if PETA wants to assure the rest of the population that a vegetarian diet is healthy and delicious, it shouldn’t associate it with jail food. Especially since Arpaio is famous for ...

The digital touch of change 6.1.2015 Deccan Herald - New Delhi
Activism is now just a click away. Be it focusing on social issues, conducting awareness drives or campaigns to mobilise people, cyber activism has been creating an impact and binding people from all walks of life and age groups regardless of gender. Most importantly, it has been reaching out to those who are afraid to be vocal about their views. Facebook, Twitter and YouTube are being successfully used for activism or to register a protest. Blogs are also serving the same purpose and are stimulating hot debates online every now and then involving politicians and other known figures. This new-age technology of connecting people has proved to be an impressive platform for various online campaigns. The popular campaign by Greenpeace, called 'Cats Save Tigers', involved sharing of pictures of cute cuddly cats to spread awareness about the depleteing number of forests because of the cutting down of trees for industrial purposes. This has caused the population of tigers to go down in countries like India, ...

Right issue, wrong tactic: Why the Kiss of Love protest missed its mark 10.11.2014 FirstPost: Life

It’s 100 percent not okay to have a lathi-wielding policeman come up and haul you off to jail under Section 294 for some consensual public pappi-love. However, it is also okay to be uncomfortable about seeing a couple making out next to you. The Kiss of Love protests seems to miss that key distinction, and therefore undermine the very cause they espouse.
