Seventy years of India-Pakistan partition in pictures

Seventy years on, partition and the violence that accompanied it continues to shape India and Pakistan.

India and Pakistan - On the 70th anniversary of the partition of British India, 101 East presenter Steve Chao travelled to India and Pakistan to examine the troubled legacy of this historic event.

When British rulers divided the subcontinent into two nations, it prompted the greatest mass migration of people in history and unleashed a wave of violence that claimed more than a million lives.

From the elderly survivors who endured the violent aftermath of the partition to the military commanders and angry nationalists whose hostility shows little sign of fading, these images powerfully depict how the legacy of partition continues to shape India and Pakistan today.

What's your car trying to tell you?

Millions of drivers admit they can't name crucial dashboard indicators – so how many do YOU recognise?

They are an everyday sight that could mean the difference between a smooth journey and a costly repair bill.

But many of us have no idea what the lights and symbols on our car dashboards actually mean and when to take action.

They flag up issues with the engine or can even save a driver's life in the most serious of cases - but how many do you know? 

There are 64 warning lights and symbols on a car's dashboard - but how many do you recognise?

According to a new survey, one in three cannot recognise which symbol is the headlamp indicator, while 27 per cent can't identify the 'check engine' sign, the study of 2,000 drivers found.

And when people do understand what the car is warning them about, very few know how to manage the problem themselves.

Two thirds of those polled have no idea how to check the oil, just under half don't know how to change a tyre and 44 per cent wouldn't have a clue how to change the windscreen wipers.

While 58 per cent have no idea what their tyre thread limit should be, when it becomes illegal, or how to check it.

Here is your handy guide to recognising what each symbol means and what you need to do about it.

A study of 2,000 motorists in Britain has shown that nine out of 10 people have had a symbol pop up in their car that they didn't recognise

A study of 2,000 motorists in Britain has shown that nine out of 10 people have had a symbol pop up in their car that they didn't recognise

David Carter, spokesman for Accident Advice Helpline, said: 'It's worrying how little drivers know about their own cars.

'Knowing the meaning of a dashboard symbol on your car could be the difference between having an accident or not.'

The study reveals only 16 per cent of drivers would now try to fix a problem with their car themselves.

Just under half of those polled would look online if the dashboard started flashing at them with unrecognisable symbols.


And three per cent of people would continue to drive their car regardless of warnings until it actually felt unsafe.

When it comes to car maintenance, a quarter of motorists admit they have been late in getting their car through the MOT.

Of these, 18 per cent took their car to the garage more than 16 days after the test was due.

Most common reasons for missing the car MOT were forgetting, feeling the car was safe and not being able to afford it. 


Bring birth certificate for passport renewal, Filipinos

Dubai: Philippine missions are now requiring some Filipinos applying for passport renewal to bring a copy of their birth certificates to proceed with their application or risk not getting processed on the day.

The requirement applies to Filipinos whose passports indicate only the “province of their birth”. To rectify the issue, these passport holders are now required to bring a copy of their birth certificates issued by the National Statistics Office (now the Philippine Statistics Authority).

Vice-Consul Elizabeth Picar Ramos said the new advanced system requires for the place of birth to be keyed in, specifically the city or municipality of birth. Passports indicating provinces only will not be processed without the birth certificate.

“We are now required to input the city or municipality of birth. This is why we require our compatriots to bring their birth certificates so we can scan it together with the passport application and send it to Manila,” Ramos told Gulf News.

“If the application does not have a scanned copy of the birth certificate, the printing gets suspended in Manila. So we do not accept or process applicants here unless they have all the required documents because lifting the suspension is a difficult process.”

For example, if an applicant’s birthplace in the passport says “Cebu”, the system will not accept the application. It has to be the city or municipality in the province of Cebu mentioned in his birth certificate.

Ramos said this new requirement started in August. The consulate sends reminders to applicants along with their online application appointments. However, many applicants still fail to bring the needed document.

Ramos also urged applicants to have all their documents in order when they reach the consulate to save on time in the renewal process.

The consulate processes 360 passport applications a day spread across eight hours with no lunch break.

Ramos also reiterated that Filipinos can apply for passport renewal or book their online appointments as early as 10 months before their passport expires to “give ample time for the arrival of the new passports”.

Passport applications are also strictly by appointment and free of charge through the Passport Appointment Portal, except for domestic workers, seafarers, senior citizens, and children below 12 years.

As of June 1, all applicants who don’t show up on their appointment dates are required to re-apply for an appointment online.

Meanwhile, Ramos said the guidelines for the newly approved passport with 10-year validity have yet to be issued by the Department of Foreign Affairs in Manila.

OFW nurse wins US humanitarian award

One of America’s prestigious humanitarian award-giving entities honored a Filipina nurse who turned her apartment into a home for the homeless and disadvantaged youth in Aiken, South Carolina.

In 2016, Leolalinda Petingalay-Plameras purchased a house in a high-crime area in Aiken. Gang violence and crime were rampant in the community, and burglars did not spare her apartment to force their way in.

“Instead of getting scared, I felt pity for those intruders. They were hungry. The broken glass was their shattered lives. I knew then that I had a mission,” Plameras was quoted in a news report.

Because of this, Plameras decided to convert their house where children in their neighborhood can feel safe and be taken care of.

Working as a registered nurse at Doctors Hospital of Augusta in Georgia and a nursing supervisor at Anchor Health Rehabilitation, Plameras seeked the help of colleagues at the hospital and nursing homes for donations of shoes, socks, and food for the children. True to its name, the Agape House soon received food, clothing, shelter, and love from concerned citizens.

Little did she know that her selfless mission would be recognized by her peers and decided to nominate her for the Frist Humanitarian Award, which recognizes individuals outstanding humanitarian and volunteer activities beyond their regular work given by the prestigious Hospital Corporation of America (HCA).

“Filipino nurses have compassion, the right spirit and attitude. We are hardworking, courteous, and can pull more hours to do volunteer work on holidays. We seldom complain. Being a good listener and always smiling make a difference,” Plameras said in her speech.

Indian group sings a stirring version of Pakistan’s national anthem as Independence Day gift. Watch video

As an Independence Day gift for Pakistan, an Indian music band has sung an A Capella version of the Pakistani national anthem. Watch the video here.

Indiaj music band Acapella Band Voxchord has a beautiful gift for Pakistan this Independence Day.

As Pakistan gets ready to celebrate its 70th Independence Day on Monday, an Indian music group has given it a beautiful birthday present by singing A Capella version of its national anthem, Pak Sarzamin. The video was uploaded by Indian music group, Acapella Band Voxchord, on Friday and has already garnered more than 57,000 hits on YouTube.

The two-minute video begins with the group members holding up placards that say, “This Independence Day, we’d like to dedicate a song to our neighbours. A song about faith, pride and grandeur, of power, progress and perfection.” The group has seven members.

Voxchord uses the A Capella technique that emphasises on the stirring lyrics, which have shades of Persian poetic vocabulary but are primarily in Urdu, Scroll reported.

The group’s gesture was appreciated by Pakistani media as well. Writing about it, Pak newspaper Dawn said, “The surprise offering comes just days before Aug 14 and features the singers in a monochrome video. Free of any instruments, the song is quite a treat to listen to.”

Blast kills 15 in Pakistan: official

Quetta: A powerful blast targeting a military vehicle on Saturday night killed at least 15 people and wounded 32 others in Pakistan's southwestern province of Balochistan, which borders Iran and Afghanistan, officials said.

The blast occurred at a bus stop in the provincial capital Quetta and the area caught fire soon after the explosion.

A statement by the Pakistani military said the explosion targeted an on-duty vehicle and set several other vehicles on fire.

"Incendiary explosive was used. As a result nearby vehicles caught fire. 15 people including 7 civilians were martyred," the statement said, adding that 25 people including 15 civilians had been injured and taken to a military hospital.

Provincial home minister Sarfraz Bugti and government spokesman Anwar ul Haq Kakar confirmed the death toll but put the number of wounded at 32.

Bugti said firefighters were working to put out the blaze.

The nature of the blast could not immediately be determined but an investigation was underway, Bugti said.

President Mamnoon Hussain, Chief of the Army Staff Qamar Javed Bajwa and deposed Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif all condemned the attack.

The blast came two days before Pakistan's 70th Independence Day, and the military chief said it was an effort to mar celebrations.

"Our resolve won't succumb to any challenge," he said in a statement.

Militants in past have carried out big attacks on Independence Day and other events of national importance.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility but Taliban and Daesh militants have attacked Quetta city in the past.

Filipina in Dubai Willing to go to Jail to Pay Off Sister’s Hospital Bills

After suffering a heart attack in June, a Filipina breadwinner who worked in Dubai for three years finally arrives back home, in the arms of her family.

However, her more than one month-stay in the hospital left behind a huge medical bill that her family now has to pay for, according to Gulf News.

Techie Santos, 35, sustained brain damage as a result of oxygen deprivation after she was discovered motionless and stock-still at her flat on June 21. Because of this, Santos remains paralyzed but is able to hear and blink, the report said.

According to Gulf News, the International Modern Hospital ensured her smooth repatriation and discounted her pending bills, the hospital’s CEO Dr. Kishan Pakkal said in an interview. This was in line with the ‘Year of Giving’.

Other fees like the cost of her repatriation amounting to Dh62,500 were settled through the help of Santos’ company and the Philippine consulate.  

However, an amount of Dh30,000 has still to be paid after her health insurance maxed out during her lengthy stay at the hospital.

Her sister, Crismanne, is still at a loss on how to pay for the hospital bills despite being given an extension to settle their medical debt.

““I am grateful that the hospital allowed us some time to settle the balance, but I do not know where [else] I can get the money from. I am willing to go to jail if that would pay off my sister’s hospital bill. I really hope someone could help us,” Gulf News quoted Crismanne as saying.
