Man attacks wife with machete
Bengaluru: Marital discord and suspicion of fidelity led an autorickshaw driver to attack his estranged wife with a machete near the railway track at Gajendra Nagar in Byappanahalli on Tuesday morning. The woman sustained serious injuries on her right hand and has been admitted to hospital.
The injured woman, Deepa (21), who works as a domestic help, was attacked by Babu (22). They fell in love and got married five years ago and were staying in Gajendra Nagar. The couple has a son and daughter.
But for the last one year, Babu started suspecting Deepa’s fidelity and the couple had frequent quarrels over the issue. Two months ago, an angry Deepa deserted Babu and moved into her parents’ house in the same area. Their parents met recently to sort out the issue, but it did not result in a compromise.
“Determined to live separately from her husband, Deepa had returned her mangalsutra and toe ring. An upset Babu had threatened her with dire consequences,” the police added.
“On Tuesday morning, Deepa was walking towards a house where she worked when Babu attacked her with a machete. He fled the scene after the incident. Deepa, who sustained serious injuries on her right hand, has been admitted to a hospital,” the police said.
Byappanahalli railway police have registered a case and are on the lookout for Babu.

4-year-old boy abused, murdered
Madurai: In a shocking incident, a four-year-old boy was found murdered and buried inside a bone-dry kanmoi (tank) in a village in Madurai district.
The police who exhumed the body in the wee hours of Tuesday said it had bruises all over giving way for suspicion of abuse and torture. “Our suspicion proved right when we picked up Selvam (30), with whom the boy was seen last, and grilled him,” a police officer said.
The police said Selvam was a childhood friend of the boy’s father, a mason of a village near Vannivel­ampatti.
Hence, he used to frequent his house and take the little boy and his younger sister out often and buy them toffees. Having been to his friend’s house on Monday evening, Selvam, who was drunk, had taken the boy out.
However, after some time, he returned to his house and was watching TV while the worried parents were frantically searching for their son. 
Even as some villagers stated that they saw the boy with Selvam, he feigned ignorance saying he consoled him as he was crying but left the place thereafter. The police said he joined the villagers in looking for the boy.
Since the boy could not be traced, they informed T. Kalluppatti police. On being grilled, Selvam confessed to abusing the child in a secluded place by the village tank and strangling him to death out of fear that he would expose him.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
