Om Puri's death: Cops record statement of kin, friends
Police are recording statements of veteran actor Om Puri's kin, friends and others in connection with his death, a senior official said today.
"Statements of his relatives, neighbours and friends are being recorded in the wake of post-mortem report which mentions that the actor had suffered an injury to his head," the police official said.
There is noting suspicious in the case, however, we are verifying all aspects. Nothing has been found in his building's CCTV camera too, police said.
On January 7, the Mumbai police had registered an 'Accidental Death Report' (ADR) in connection with Puri's death.
Puri (66), known for his roles in several landmark films such as "Ardha Satya", "City of Joy" and "Aakrosh", died after a heart attack at his apartment in Lokandwala Complex in suburban Andheri here on January 6.
The actor had also sustained an injury, caused apparently when he collapsed to the floor after the heart attack.
Since he was alone at his house at the time of death and sustained an injury, Oshiwara police registered an ADR as per routine procedure, a senior police officer had said.

The problem of not cutting trees
A forest is a renewable crop, and just like agriculture, one could harvest old trees and then nurture new seedlings to come in the forest floor and grow into a mature forest again (of course subject to environmental limits which can be established through some methods of assessments and planning). But why doesn’t this simple wisdom prevail in Nepal’s forest governance and management circles?

Somebody nudges me. I wake up and look up with bleary eyes at Mr. Shahdev SSJB Rana holding my uniform blazer in his right hand. Had my skin been white, I would have turned cherry red with a mixture of fear and shame at being caught so red-handed. And that too by the person who was second in position in the hotel food chain, only below Princess Helen Shah herself. Before I could blurt anything out at my Managing Director, he whispers, “Lamichhane, next time I will not give this blazer back for you to wear.”

I have seen my sisters and friends isolated and treated in discriminatory manner during their first menstruation cycle. They were not allowed to look at the sun, to touch water source, flower, fruits, any male family member, nor even hear their voice. The activist may claim the situation has changed and I do agree but still during every month my loved ones turns into untouchables beings.
