According to Hindu Scriptures, Goddess Kali is the fearful form of the Mother Goddess Durga. Kali Puja is another important festival in Bengal after Durga Puja in which people worship Goddess Kali, the goddess of destruction, the savior of mankind from the evil spirit. According to legend, two demons, Shambhu and Nishambhu disturbed Lord Indra. After several battle when the gods failed, they sought help from Lord Shiva and his wife Parvati. The Gods sought help from Goddess Durga. Kali was born out of Goddess’s brow. To stop the Goddess Kali’s killing spree, Lord Shiva, her husband threw himself under her feet. She was so ashamed with the act of Lord Shiva, that she stuck her tongue out in shame.Thus we get the common images and idols of Goddess Kali standing with her feet on Lord Shiva’s chest and her tongue out holding severed heads of demons.

A new wave of target killings of journalists and attacking on the media houses have again started. With in the span of 24 hours two media persons were killed by, as usual, “unknown persons”. The score comes to five during the current year. According to Dunya Tv during the last five years 65 journalists were killed in Pakistan and still no precautions were taken to protect the journalists by the government and media houses themselves.
On September 9, two unidentified armed men shot dead senior journalist Aftab Alam on in a drive-by shooting incident in the city’s North Karachi area. According to media reports Alam was shot dead by unidentified assailants outside his house. The senior journalist was critically injured in the attack and was rushed to the Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
On September 8 in evening another media man, Mr. Arshad Ali Jaffery, of Geo News channel was attacked while he was sitting with his driver in a DSN van. As usual the three unknown attackers came on a motor bike and did indiscriminate firing targeting Jaffery. He received nine bullet shots and driver received two bullets. He died in hospital. The Geo news always remains under attack from political groups and the authorities
It has been two years since the Karachi operation against extortionist and target killers began in Karachi yet so far there has not been any major improvement in the law and order situation in the metropolis of Karachi, the provincial capital of Sindh province, Pakistan. Organized crimes, gang war between militia groups maintained by political parties and target killings have cost the economic hub of the country billions of Dollars.
The recent cases of target killing negate the tall claims of police officers who report that that the trend in target killing has decreased by 70 percents. According to media reports 112 people were killed in the month of August alone. The figure included the attack on political leaders Dilshad Mavia of the Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat (ASWJ) and Rasheed Godil a political leader of Muttaida Qaoumi Movement (MQM) and sitting member of the National Assembly. Mavia was shot dead in an act of targeted killing in Orangi Town on 18th August while Mr. Rasheed Godil survived the attempt on his life by target killers.
The case of slain activist Sabeen Mehmood suffered a setback when her driver Ghulam Abbas was shot death by unknown assailants. Abbas was the main witness in the case and had identified the assailants who killed Sabeen. According to police officials investigating the case, strong evidence of banned outfit’s involvement in Sabeen’s murder has been found. The murder brings to light the state’s disinterest in witness protection. The assailants are subsequently acquitted for want of evidence and witness in such cases where the star witness are killed or threatened into silence.
The solution to Karachi’s law and order situation lies not in targeted operation but in political dialogue but on the personal instructions of chief of army staff, General Raheel Sharif, a ruthless operation has been started which is now targeting political workers rather than terrorists. This is the reason the banned militant groups again find liberty to operate freely without any fear. Though the operation may cause a temporary lull in the otherwise volatile city the calm will be short lived. The absence of political co operation and strong local body governance has made Karachi on of the deadliest cities in the world.

We would like to relaunch weekly Bengali Hyper Local newspapers on regular basis like Ajker Nari ( Women Today Bengali Language women’s Weekly Hyper Local Newspaper) Bangler Dinkal (Day Time Bengal, Bengali Language Weekly Hyper Local Newspaper ),a daily Television Hyper Local News with the help of experience journalists. Unlike the West, in India media including print is growing and according to a recent survey, advertising in print is also growing at a CAGR. A vast bulk of the print readers in India in fact consume news in Hindi and other regional languages.
As an experienced Journalists, We do believe for not-for-profit venture, digital International (Online) magazine should be the top priority for communications and spreading awareness. For our proposed English crime and human rights digital magazine Crime & More World which will be launched soon wants to highlight and aware people about the global issues like human trafficking,Drug trafficking, atrocities against LGBT community, cross border terrorism,Cyber Crime,Forensic sciences,criminal psychology,Atrocities against women, AIDS/HIV, Domestic Violence, Corruption in high places, serial killer and other issues that matter the most.It will be interactive in nature with additional content.
But at the same time,we agree with experts that the two worlds (Digital and Print) can co-exist and support one another. Many readers still prefer to consume printed articles. Some experts still believe that the notion ‘death of print’ have been greatly exaggerated. We also believe that the printed word have greater impact than digital one. For the reason, I want to produce 4-8 pages broad sheet weekly newspapers high-quality, full-color monthly magazine routinely in Bengali language Bangler Dinkal, Ajker Nari ( women’s Weekly Newspaper) and daily TV news
because it is our mother tongue. For example, Women trafficking is major problem in West Bengal. According to one estimate,half a million Indian children under age 16 are exploited in the sex trade. So we think that awareness is necessary to eradicate these kind of crime against humanity. We want to promote community awareness by connecting people through rural news and human angle stories.
We need investors who want to invest in this project high return:
