Fleeing Aleppo fighting, Syrians describe terrifying choices | Reuters 4.12.2016 FirstPost: World
BEIRUT As Syrian government forces advanced into Aleppo's rebel-held al-Sakhour district, Hasan al-Ali said he faced the choice of staying put and being caught by the army, or fleeing into a shrinking rebel enclave under relentless bombardment.A father of three children, he opted for the latter, though food, fuel, water and medicine are running critically low in rebel-held areas, such is his fear of the Syrian government that insurgents have been trying to unseat for more than five years."I didn't take anything with me. I took the kids, ran to my car, and left... We took the decision at the final hour, because the army could have swooped in at any moment," the 33-year-old said, speaking in eastern ...

Mosul residents fear cold and hunger of winter siege | Reuters 3.12.2016 FirstPost: World
By Ahmed Rasheed | BAGHDAD BAGHDAD No food or fuel has reached Mosul in nearly a week and the onset of rain and cold weather threatens a tough winter for more than a million people still in Islamic State-held areas of the city, residents said on Saturday.Iraqi troops waging a six-week-old offensive against the militants controlling Mosul have advanced into eastern city districts, while other forces have sealed Mosul's southern and northern approaches and 10 days ago blocked the road west.But their advance has been hampered by waves of counter-attacks from the ultra-hardline Islamists who have controlled the city since mid-2014 and built a network of tunnels in preparation for their defence of north Iraq's largest city.The slow progress means the campaign is likely to drag on throughout the winter, and has prompted warnings from aid groups that civilians face a near complete siege in the coming months.A trader in Mosul, speaking by telephone, said no new food or fuel supplies had reached the city since ...

The big fat story 26.11.2016 DNA: Mumbai
She’s the go-to designer-stylist for the who's who of the small screen. Awards for her work on mytho-historical serials crowd the shelves behind her. Yet, Neerja Nainakwal* is almost never seen at launch or success parties. About the only time she steps out is to go to her studio or for fittings and look-tests.  Her reticence isn’t about snooty avoidance used by many in the entertainment industry to propel curiosity about themselves. Pointing to her signature black, ankle-length kaftan-top paired with full-length tights, she says, “There is a reason I'm covered fully like this. I've battled being ridiculed about my weight since I was 14.”  The body shaming began early. She recalls a geography class when a student posed a question on cannibalism. “While brushing it off as extremely rare and forced by circumstances, our teacher Ratna Kalani mischievously added, ‘Things would of course be very different if you sent our Neerja there since there'd be so much more to eat.’ As the class broke out into laughter, ...
