Kanika settled in London post her marriage to a businessman. She always aspired to be a singer. Her music video Jugni Ji in 2012 made the right noises on the internet becoming a huge hit. In 2014 Ekta Kapoor called her to sing Baby Doll for her film, Ragini MMS 2.

Kanika gained all the applause for the song and soon became a hit. Since then there has been no looking back for the singer, a mother to three children. One who has always been a part of elite social circles, Kanika’s performance at the Buckingham doesn’t come as a surprise although it is a huge achievement no doubt. Ask her about her distinct voice and she attributes it to the experiences she has gone through in her life. Those have helped put all that soul in her rendition.

In an earlier interview to Filmfare, she had said, “It comes from my journey. I’ve been through a lot of traumaIt’s made me a mature person. It’s also made me a deeper person spiritually. That is what is different about me from other singers. I’m sure there are better vocalists than me but why is it that my song is touching you? Why is Yeh duniya pittal di touching you? Because it has come from my soul.”

Bello says DOLE decision on Kuwait deployment ban out this week

The decision of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) on whether to lift the suspension or not the deployment of overseas Filipino workers to Kuwait will be known this week.

“Anytime this week we would be coming up with our decision on whether to make the suspension a ban or to lift it depending on the report. Of course in close coordination with the Office of the President, which has the final say because of our President,” Labor and Employment Secretary Silvestre Bello III said in a press briefing Monday.

Last month, the Labor Secretary suspended the deployment of workers to Kuwait following the deaths of seven overseas Filipino workers in the Gulf state.

In Administrative Order No. 25, Bello directed the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) to stop the processing and issuance of overseas employment certificates (OECs) to all Kuwait-bound workers pending the investigation of the cause of deaths of the Filipino workers.

Earlier, President Rodrigo Roa Duterte also threatened to withdraw all OFWs from Kuwait if another migrant Filipina worker dies from abuse.

According to Bello, they were still waiting for the report with recommendations regarding the investigation on the recent deaths of OFWs in Kuwait.

He then appealed to aspiring OFWs who have pending applications for the OEC to be more patient.

“We have to appeal to our future OFWs, who have pending applications for the OEC, to wait for more time because I would want to be sure that if we would deploy them in Kuwait they would be in safe hands,” Bello said.

“We cannot gamble with the lives of our workers. We do not want time to come that we have a fellow Filipino who was raped or abused. You heard our President and his strong words for our OFWs,” he added.

Meanwhile, the labor department revealed that more than 600 OFWs have already been rendered jobless in Qatar.

“We looked at the companies where these Filipinos worked, and, apparently, a lot of them are owned by Saudi companies. So this might be on face value a divestment of Saudi from Qatar. So until the political issues is there, it is always a threat with Filipinos. We are closely observing this,” DOLE Undersecretary Ciriaco Lagunzad III said.

DOLE assured those who were retrenched of help.

“If they want to come home then we would have to repatriate them. And waiting for them is our reintegration program,” said Bello.

The displacement stemmed from the recent diplomatic crisis between Qatar and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA).

Body of suspected Pinay maid found in freezer in Kuwait

The body of a woman believed to be a Filipina domestic helper was found inside a freezer in an abandoned apartment in Kuwait on Wednesday, and authorities believe she had been in cold storage for more than a year, reports said.

Philippine officials are still verifying if the body was that of a Filipina.

"Our labor attache is still verifying if the corpse is that of a Filipina," Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III told GMA News Onlina in a text message.

If proven that the body was that of a Filipina maid, it will bolster the Philippine government's justification in suspending the deployment of new workers to Kuwait over reports of abuses, with some resulting in deaths. The Kuwaiti government has criticized the Philippines' move.

According to a report on Arab Times, police discovered the remains while serving a court order for the eviction of the tenants of Salmiya apartment.

Officers, as well as the caretaker and landlord of the building, were surprised to discover the body inside the freezer at the apartment that was previously owned by a married couple, a Syrian woman and a Lebanese man, who had a Filipina maid.

The couple, however, left Kuwait in 2016 after an arrest warrant was put out for the Lebanese man for cases related to fake checks. They are now tagged by the police as the main suspects for the woman's death.

Upon discovery of the body, police notified the General Department of Criminal Evidences to have it transferred to Forensics for autopsy.

No other details have been furnished to the public, but a separate report on Kuwait Times said stab wounds were found on the woman's neck along with torture marks all over her body.

Kuwait Times reached out to Philippine Ambassador to Kuwait Rene Villa for comments, but was told that they were unsure about the nationality of the deceased.

The body was discovered on the same day President Rodrigo Duterte met with Kuwait Ambassador to the Philippines Musaed Saleh Althwaikh regarding the suspension of OFW deployment to Kuwait.

Labor officials are studying whether to extend, repeal, or revise the suspension order into a total ban in light of continued maltreatment of OFWs in the Gulf country.

Injured Indian woman tourist dies in air ambulance from Dubai

Her husband had died in a crash when they were heading for a desert safari on Jan 22

Dubai: An Indian woman tourist, who was fighting for her life after a crash in Dubai in which her husband died, did not survive her flight back home in an air ambulance on Monday.Neetu Jain Kawad, 38, was flown to the South Indian city of Bengaluru in an air ambulance two weeks after she lost her husband, Dinesh Kawad, 40, in a collision between a minibus they were travelling in and a truck on Emirates Road on January 22.

 

“Unfortunately, Neetu couldn’t survive the flight and we have lost her even before emergency treatment could be given to her in India,” the family informed Rakesh Bohara, who assisted them in Dubai.

Bohara, general secretary of Rajasthan Business and Professional Group (RBPG) in Dubai, and Kesar Kothari, chairman of RBPG, were contacted by their acquaintance in Rajasthan after the couple met with the accident during their trip to Dubai.

Hailing from Rajasthan, the couple was settled in Bellary in Karnataka, running a garments business.

They had left behind their 11-year-old son and nine-year-old daughter with grandparents when they came to Dubai on a leisure trip.

Killed on the spot

They were with two other tourist couples heading for a desert safari trip when the fatal accident took place near Al Aweer area while they were driving towards Sharjah, police sources said earlier.

Initial police investigation showed the bus driver did not leave safe distance between the vehicles, leading to the crash.

Dinesh Kawad, who was sitting in the front passenger seat, and the Pakistani driver, 23, were killed on the spot.

An Italian tourist’s wife, who was said to be three-month pregnant, reportedly succumbed to her injuries later, while a Chinese couple and the Italian man survived with minor injuries.

Bohara told Gulf News that Neetu had suffered critical injuries and fallen into a coma before she was rushed to Rashid Hospital.

Brothers and cousins of the couple had flown in from India after the crash. Kawad’s relatives, who took home his body for funeral, came back again to assist his wife’s relatives, said Bohara.

Help

“We helped them with the paper works with the support of the Indian Consulate and Dubai Police. We also arranged free accommodation for them with the help of Praveen Shetty, the owner of Fortune Group of Hotels.”

He said the tour company, Rayna Tours, paid the hospital bills of Neetu. “I don’t know if they will be reimbursed by the insurance company. But they made the payments on the spot.”

He said the relatives had later decided to fly Neetu back to Bengaluru hoping to get her treated there.

“We didn’t even know this couple. But it seems they lived a very happy life. We were told they had recently held a big celebration of their 15th wedding anniversary in Goa. We are really sad about their young kids,” said Bohara.
