be expected from a child aged around five” — justice SP GARG (Representational Picture) Top News Three years after a five-year-old girl had in court described her sexual assault with the help of a doll the Delhi High Court has upheld the trial court order sentencing the 23-year-old accused to five years’ imprisonment The accused Hunny was charged under sections 323 (voluntarily causing hurt) and 363 (kidnapping) of the IPC besides Section 10 (punishment for aggravated sexual assault) of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act The incident occurred on July 21 2014 when the accused sexually assaulted the five-year-old after kidnapping her While recording her statement to the trial court she did not answer “embarrassing questions” regarding the nature of the offence but “categorically pointed out” what the accused had done to her by referring to a doll in her hand When the trial court had asked what happened after the accused abducted her from near her school gate she referred to the doll in her hand The court had asked her “Beta kya uss ladke ne aapke saath wahi kiya tha jo abhi aap doll ke saath kar rahe ho” to which the child had said “Haan” Based on the testimony of the child the trial court had sentenced the accused following which he filed an appeal in the HC “…Obviously the child was reluctant to answer embarrassing questions which were derogatory in nature The court can understand the shyness of a tender aged girl to answer such questions… She has conveyed as to what was done to her Nothing more can be expected from a child aged around five…” Justice S P Garg said The child had also scratched a particular body part of the doll after which she “turned numb” and did not respond to further questions “Her testimony cannot be discarded merely because she in express/specific words did not tell that body part on which nails were used…” said the judge adding that “merely because no nail marks were found… it cannot be inferred that no such incident occurred” Underscoring the testimonies of the witnesses the court also said it was proven that the accused had kidnapped the child Dismissing the appeal Justice S P Garg said “The court can well understand the trauma of the child where she suffered sexual abuse at such a young age… The trial court has already taken a lenient view… being a minimum sentence under Section 10

spinning in a direction that is not completely aligned with the orbital rotation of the binary providing potential clues on how these binaries might have formed The new event also provides new opportunities to test Einstein’s theory of general relativity “For example this allowed us to confirm Einstein’s prediction that gravitational waves should not undergo dispersion — the phenomena of waves travelling at different speeds depending on their wavelength Indian scientists played a leading role in deriving this result” said Sanjit Mitra from the Pune-based Inter-University Centre for

NewsWritten by Parul | Chandigarh | Published: September 24 2017 6:45 am Eminent painter and photographer Rameshwar Broota in Chandigarh on Saturday (Express photo) Top News NOTHING CAN compel Rameshwar Broota to paint for he believes that only when he has something to say will he put his brush to canvas In a creative career spanning five decades Broota has painted no more than seven paintings a year and when he is immersed in photography Broota doesn’t paint for long periods “There can be no compromises on aesthetics honesty and freedom of thought” reflects Broota here on the invitation of the Chandigarh Lalit Kala Akademi for a lecture-and-slide show of his paintings and photographs The presentation on Saturday evening brought the audience closer to Delhi-based Broota’s body of work a journey that resounds with deep thought philosophy and experimentation with form technique colours and textures Art came to Broota early on in life as he looked at his two older brothers draw and create art which had a deep impact on him “They were brilliant and should have been artists Instead I took up art” smiles the painter recalling how he would draw all the time instead of doing his school work a passion that continued in college The Delhi School of Art was the next step though deep inside Broota wanted to be part of the Indian Army a wish that could not be fulfilled and one that pained Broota for a long time “Even while working in the art college I would think of life in the Army or police but as I began working on my art it took over my being” recalls Broota adding how the world outside was both tough and replete with struggles without the guidance and support of teachers and lack of money Not only was it difficult to find work in the field of art to sell art was not easy And that’s the time when Broota was invited to teach at Triveni Kala Sangam a space that gave him just the ambience and energy to work and also have the human contact that gave him new perspectives Broota’s art has undergone many transformations each series a chance to look both outwards and inwards The streets of Delhi with its labourers bony and stark figures poverty gloom became the subject of Broota’s art for years a reflection of the struggles of life Satire too emerged in his paintings be it a comment on politicians during the Emergency with inhabitants of the jungle sipping coffee in a drawing room as the files sit closed “And then one day I knew that I had nothing more to paint about these figures a tough phase for here you are desperate to paint but know inside that this subject is over It was a time to think reflect and then the image of apes came to me The figures malnourished apes depicted the animal instinct of man the corruption of bureaucrats a comment on our society” harps Broota This series led to a long wait and contemplation metamorphosing into the man series one that remains an integral part of the journey “As I look back I see that my work changed every 10 years and this series also led to the emergence of a new technique As I searched for a new subject I painted the canvas rubbed it clean again and again looked at it after a few hours wondering what to do with a canvas full of colour and then I began to rub the wet paint and images began to appear and it was the beginning of this series As the paint began to dry I began using the knife to scrape the paint and carving images and later meticulously using blades to scrape layers of paints I wanted my art not to be limited and talk of universal issues and that’s how the man series is talks of humanity the struggles of us the body the muscle the veins no clothingspeaks of struggles down the ages it remains a constant” says Broota talking about how architectural forms signs symbols began finding way on to the canvas replacing the man Art says the painter has to be aesthetic prompt people to think reflect transform and for him constant experimentation and looking at life around with new perspectives is paramount Photography too began with an urge to connect and communicate and is a medium that like painting has great depth with Broota working in the dark room for hours to work on photographs with many dimensions with the artist negotiating many new images paths spaces shadows light For all the latest Chandigarh News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy:

may yet turn out to be a gross underestimation of the long-term costs of the catastrophe (Source: Reuters) Top News In April 2010 a major explosion on the Deepwater Horizon rig killed 11 people and dumped millions of barrels of crude oil into the Gulf of Mexico devastating its ecology and destroying livelihoods In the months after not only was BP the offshore driller conducting the operation exposed for its lack of a contingency plan the Obama administration too struggled to respond effectively The well was finally capped only in July The scale of the damage done in the intervening months is still being parsed So for all that BP’s settlement with the US justice department for a headline-grabbing $187 billion is a record in terms of an environmental fine it may yet turn out to be a gross underestimation of the long-term costs of the catastrophe The gulf oil spill the worst in US history stands as a cautionary tale against unbridled corporate adventurism By holding BP accountable for its negligence American regulators have the opportunity to deter future misconduct by other corporations as well But is the amount punitive enough to send a signal to the industry BP’s contingency fund set up to cover costs related to the spill is now said to total $538 billion Though BP’s deep pockets mean that this figure is manageable it was not without pain: it had to sell off assets around the world to be able to defray the expenses and become much leaner Still there are signs that the lessons from the disaster have not been learnt Though experts believe today’s oil industry is better prepared to prevent a similar disaster and regulators are more observant corporations are continuing to foray in deeper waters without recognising that they may not have the technological capacity to prevent an event like Deepwater Horizon Hopefully they now have $187 billion reasons to be more cautious India which has a shameful record on penalising corporations for misconduct and recklessness — see Bhopal — should learn from the US’s aggressive approach towards BP For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Top News
