Panaji, Nov 13 : There is a need to protect children from drugs, sex, alcohol, hard labour, abuse and violence, newly appointed Goa Governor Satya Pal Malik said on Wednesday in his message ahead of Children’s Day.

Malik also said, that children should be shielded from the negative impact of urbanisation, industrialization, commercialisation and materialism.

“Today children are thrown open to evils of drugs, sex, alcohol, hard labour, abuse and violence. Thousands of little children in our country are made to slog for long hours. Many are yet to see the light of modern education. Therefore, it is an occasion to put an end to various forms of child abuse that are taking place on our land,” Malik said.

“The celebration of Children’s Day teaches us several important values. It is a call to protect our little ones from all harm and to save them from the negative impact of urbanisation, industrialisation, commercialisation and materialism, Malik also said.

Children’s Day is celebrated every year in India as a tribute to the country’s first Prime Minister late Jawaharlal Nehru on November 14.

Nithyananda and Modi

Self-styled godman Swami Nithyananda, booked in a criminal case related to his ashram fled the country on Thursday. The Gujarat police has taken two of his disciples in remand.

An FIR was registered on Wednesday against the controversial guru on the charges of kidnapping and wrongful confinement of children to make them collect donations from followers to run his ashram, Yogini Sarvagyapeetham.

Nithyananda has fled the country after a rape case was registered against him in Karnataka, and it will be a waste of time searching for him here, the police said.

Soon after the news, photos of the godman with Prime Minister Narendra Modi started doing the rounds on social media, gaining increasing popularity.

The two had met in 2007 in Bengaluru during Nithyananda Jayanti celebrations. Modi, at that time, was the Chief Minister of Gujarat.

In 2009, Modi, the then Chief Minister of Gujarat shared the stage with Swami Nithyananda in Vadodara. The godman who had donated Rs. 2.50 lakh to the state government-run Kanya Kelavni (Girl Child) Scheme was also invited to give a discourse.

His contribution was appreciation by the then Chief Minister Modi who even commented that while the state had been visited by many, this was the first time a godman had actually used such a platform and given the state something. Modi also paid obeisance to him.

Twitter has now unearthed photos from these meetings and it is going viral. Take a look:

A video of the self-styled godman Swamy Nithyananda has surfaced and is being circulated widely on social media in which he very confidently proclaims that “nobody can touch me and no stupid court can prosecute me”. The self-styled Godman who has been accused of rape and sexual abuse fled India after a case of rape was registered against him by Gujarat police in November 2019.

The video has gone viral on social media but the date and location of the video remain unknown.

Swamy Nithyananda can be heard saying, “I will show my integrity to you by revealing the reality and truth to you. Now nobody can touch me, I can tell you the truth – I am Param Shiva. Understand? No stupid court can prosecute me for revealing the truth. I am Param Shiva.”

Further, he adds, “By being here you declared your integrity and allegiance to me… I promise you, no more death for you all.”

At present, Nithyananda is on the wanted list in Gujarat after he was charged with kidnapping and wrongful confinement of children at his Ahmedabad ashram.

After fleeing the country he again hogged the limelight after he announced that he is introducing his own country named ‘Kailaasa’, on his website and labelled it as “Hindu Nation.”

Nithyananda is marking his territory on the internet but still, the government authorities are unaware of his whereabouts.

The government on Friday, December 6 rejected his application and cancelled his passport.

Sydney, Dec 4 : Parents, take a note. Researchers have found that excessive use of social media, particularly platforms with a strong focus on image posting and viewing such as Snapchat and Instagram, is associated with eating disorder in young adolescents.

For the study, published in the International Journal of Eating Disorders, researchers examined data on 996 grade 7 and 8 adolescents.

“While a range of studies have focused on the impact of social media on body image, this is the first to examine the relationship between specific social media platforms and disordered eating behaviours and thoughts,” said study lead author Simon Wilksch from Flinders University in Australia.

Also, most other studies had focused on older adolescents or young-adult women, he said.

The study on associations between disordered eating and social media use among young adolescent girls and boys suggested that much more needed to be done to increase resilience in young people to become less adversely impacted by social media pressures, Wilksch added.

During the study, the research team found behaviours related to disordered eating were reported by 51.7 per cent of girls and 45 per cent of boys, with strict exercise and meal skipping being the most common.

Of these, 75.4 per cent girls and 69.9 per cent boys had at least one social media account, and Instagram was the most common.

According to the study, greater number of social media accounts and greater time spent on them were associated with a higher likelihood of disordered eating, thoughts and behaviours.

The researchers are launching an Australia-wide trial of the Media Smart Online programme designed to combat such pressures
