Is somebody harassing you?  Whether harassment is sexual or not it is against the law. If you are experiencing workplace harassment it's important to seek assistance and support when it first happens. Let's take a look at a couple of scenarios:  Sexual harassment You are in the tearoom at work and your employer comes in whilst you are there alone. He puts his hand on your shoulder and shows you an email which is sexual in nature and says it makes him think of you. You feel embarrassed and awkward but make a light-hearted comment, hoping that will be the end of the harassment. He laughs and leaves. You then feel very upset but do not know what to do about the harassment. You are concerned that people will think you are over-reacting or worse don't believe you. Over the f

Evidence of ancient nuclear war in India

Evidence of ancient nuclear war in India July 20, 2011. India:Is Man on the threshold of a new world or merely stuck on a circular treadmill repeating the doomed lessons from history which he never seems to learn? A growing number of scholars believe the world’s macabre fascination with nuclear war is just the latest repeat in a series of blunders human technology seems obsessed with repeating.    Ancient tales speak of flying vimanas. Vimanas were real vehicles and the origin of the ‘Aeroplanes.’ Great wars were described in early religious texts. Weapons could literally level the land like a moving force field. In Ancient India, we find words for certain measurements of length; one was the distance of light-years and one was the length of an atom. On

Three things young people should know to save the world Obedience should be given only conditionally and intelligently     Of course, old people should know these things too, and some small percentage does know them, but energy seems better invested in trying to teach them to young people who have less to unlearn in the process.   1.

Isn't that what you pop to your local Indian for, or have delivered (how I love that guy arriving, the scent of cumin and popadums wafting from his bag), not something you make yourself? When I cook Indian food properly, toasting and grinding the spices, my Madhur Jaffrey book acquiring even more turmeric stains, it's a labour of love. Not that the cooking is complicated, it just takes time. I feel something should already be simmering on the hob when all I've done is get the spices out of the cupboard.

COATED IN style By Mehereen Aziz    Why is it that old photos of our mothers, grandmothers and great grandmothers look so much more beautiful than our current snaps? The black and white, youthful photos of the people we know and love with the puffy hairstyles and the thick, kohled eyes seem to belong to not only another time, but another world altogether. The lure of the vintage is quite extraordinary. The pure class that exudes in photos of women in earlier times is something every modern girl should aspire to.  Thinking something along these lines, Chondon's fashion designer Chondona Dewan decided to whip up some “Back to the Future” magic this winter. “Around the 50s and 60s, women would wear coats with their saris and they would look so sop
