Kolkata woman seeks SC permission to abort 23-week foetus 22.6.2017 DNA: Top News
A 33-year-old woman from Kolkata has knocked on the doors of the top court on Wednesday seeking permission to abort her 23-week foetus claiming that it has a heart abnormality. The matter was referred to a medical board in Kolkata by a vacation bench of the Supreme Court comprising of Justices DY Chandrachud and Sanjay Kishan Kaul. Appearing for the petitioner, advocate Sneha Mukherjee claimed that the 33-year-old suffered immense mental and physical anguish as a result of the unreasonable 20-week restriction on abortion under Sections 2(b) of the Medical Termination of Pregnancy (MTP) Act.

Observing emotions 17.6.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Chhimi Tenduf-La follows his well-received books, The Amazing Racist and Panther, with this collection of short stories that strap you into the carousel seat, then takes you on a rapid-paced ride through the suburbs of Sri Lanka, which is where the author lives. We meet a motley crew of interesting people. Barring a couple of them, none are really nice and some of them are downright deadly, but 'interesting' fairly covers it. Look at the way the very first story begins, 'He wears swimming goggles and a bright yellow raincoat. I am naked from the waist down'. As we read on, we discover that the narrator is on a table and her doctor-father, the one wearing the raincoat and goggles, is about to perform an abortion on her. Employing the style by now familiar to his readers, Tenduf-La cooks up story after story, adding the spice slowly, steadily, letting it simmer before bringing it to a gradual boil. Just when you think there is a healthy dose of normalcy to the brew, along comes something that totally ...
