Women’s Rights are Human Rights

There is a general abuse of human rights all over the world. We, in Goa are not too far behind. Women’s rights are human rights.
Abuse of women’s rights begins at inception. Aborted female fetuses after sex determination tests deprive the faetice its right to be born as a female child.  Female foeticide is a common phenomenon. The disproportionate ratio of male and female speaks volumes for this. Families control the birth of female children because they believe that female children are a financial burden on the family. If the child bearing woman does not heed the demand to abort the foetus then her life in that family is hell.  If she is allowed to be born then in certain parts of India there is a practice of female infanticide. Basically a woman does not have control over her reproductive system.

Setting Goals the Taekwondo way

Six years of dedication and a disciplined regimen of regular training paid off when Sherol Fernandes won the bronze medal in the below 57 category of Taekwondo at the Lusofonia Games held in Portugal recently where eight former colonies of Portugal along with the host country participated.

Way back when Sherol was studying in the V standard at Fatima Convent High School, her father noticed her sporting talent as she used to regularly climb the guava tree in their courtyard at Padribhat in San Jose de Areal.

“I do not know why, but I had this brainwave that she would do well in Taekwondo and as classes in this sport were being held in the village, I got her enrolled,” disclosed her husband Anicet Sucorro Fernandes.

At other times the pain or discomfort may be lower down the respiratory tract, like in the larynx, where it is described as a sore throat.
