Lakhimpur (Uttar Pradesh), Sep 23 : As the nation is raising its concerns over rising population, Mohd Sharif could not care less. With three wives and 15 children, he heads what he says is the “biggest family in this district”. His entire family lives together in Baudhiyan Kalan village that has a total population of 6,000.

Sharif says he was 14 when he first got married to Jatta Begum in 1987.

He has three sons and five daughters with his first wife.

“I met Noor and married her sometime in the nineties. She has given me four daughters and one son. In 2000, I married Tarannum Begum, a Nepalese and she has given me one son and one daughter,” he says.

Interestingly, Sharif confesses that he does not remember the names of all his children.

“I go for a headcount every evening to ensure that all of them are home,” he says.

His eldest son is 24-years old and the youngest daughter is 2-years old.

“I am blessed to have such a loving family, where all stay together, even the wives. I never came across a situation where my children or wives argue with one another,” he says.

An agricultural labourer by profession, Mohd Sharif firmly believes that “If Allah sends us to earth, he ensures that no one sleeps on an empty stomach.”

Sharif says he often gets food grains instead of wages and this keeps the family going.

He has recently applied for three accommodations under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojna for his three wives.

Sharif is unaware of family planning programmes and insists that children are gifts from God. “I would be happy if I had more,” he says.

Jitin Prasada Congress UP

New Delhi, May 27 : The Congress has voiced concern over prolonged closure of small temples forcing many priests to go without wages during the lockdown.

“Due to lockdown small temples have been closed for more than two months. These temples mostly depend on offerings by worshippers. The ‘pujaris’ (priests) are now finding it difficult to make ends meet. The UP government should provide Rs 7,500 per temple so that ‘pooja’ can continue,” said Congress Working Committee member Jitin Prasada in a tweet.

“Who can better understand the problem of the ‘pujari’ than the Chief Minister (Yogi Adityanath) who himself heads a ‘Math’? This is even more surprising because the state government has a separate Ministry.”

He said his party colleague and former Madhya Pradesh CM Kamal Nath too has made a similar demand, but the ruling BJP government in the state has done nothing. Uttar Pradesh should be the first state to start this provision immediately, said Prasada.

As per media reports, there are around 5,000 small temples apart from famous and historical temples in Uttar Pradesh.

Prasada said there can be curbs on mass worship, but regular ‘puja’ can be performed daily. He is planning to distribute ‘puja kit’ for small temples in his constituency of Dhaurahra and his home district Shahjahanpur. He has asked his party volunteers to prepare a list of temples in each village.

London, May 27 : Only four in 10 adults have had sex at least once a week during the COVID-19 lockdown in the UK, according to a new study. For the findings, published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, the research team investigated the levels of sexual activity during social distancing and self-isolation.

“When starting this research we expected there to be a high level of sexual activity while social isolating at home, but interestingly we found a very low level,” said study researcher Dr Lee Smith from Anglia Ruskin University (ARU) in the UK.

According to the study, Only 39.9 per cent of the 868 British adults surveyed for the research had taken part in any form of sexual activity during the previous seven days. The study found that being younger, male, married and a consumer of alcohol was associated with greater sexual activity.

Previous research has shown an association between sexual activity and physical health, including helping to protect older adults against cardiovascular events. Frequent sexual activity has also been associated with various mental health benefits and improved cognitive function.

The findings of this new study suggest that the UK government’s public health messaging around COVID-19 self-isolation and social distancing could include promoting sexual activity as a way of maintaining physical and mental health. This low level of sexual activity could be explained by people currently feeling anxious and stressed owing to the pandemic and not being in the mood to engage in the act, the researcher said.

Moreover, those who are not married or cohabiting may not currently be able to meet up with their sexual partners and similarly, those who use online apps to facilitate casual sex will currently not be able to do this. “A lot of my previous research has shown that frequent and trouble-free sex life is important for higher levels of enjoyment of life and general mental health, and this is particularly true for older adults,” Smith said.

However, this study showed that older adults were less likely than younger adults to engage in sexual activity.

Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam

Amaravati, 25 May : The government of Andhra Pradesh on Monday stepped in to put on hold the proposed sale of unviable assets belonging to the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam (TTD). The state government stepped in to control the damage following the rising resentment in several quarters over the recent move by the Board of Trustees of the TTD.

In an order issued by Praveen Prakash, Principal Secretary (Political), on Monday, the state government, keeping in view devotees’ sentiments, directed the TTD to re-examine the issue in consultation with the different stakeholders such as religious elders, opinion makers, section of devotees etc., to ascertain whether these properties can be used by TTD for construction of temples, dharma pracharam and other religious activities.

The state government headed by Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy has been at the receiving end of opposition parties over the move to dispose of 50 TTD properties located in Tamil Nadu and other places outside Andhra Pradesh. The state government has pointed out that the controversial decision was in fact taken during the previous regime headed by the Telugu Desam Party.

“It has been brought to the notice of the government that the Board of Trustees of Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam (TTD), which was constituted by the previous government, approved the disposal of 50 properties of TTD through its resolution No. 253 dated 30.01.2016,” the order pointed out.

The richest religious body in the country, the TTD has been in the news of late with reports of a cash crunch following the Covid-19 induced lockdown and the resultant freeze on contributions from the devotees. The TTD is headed by Y.V. Subba Reddy, who is also Jagan Mohan Reddy’s maternal uncle.
