THE paradigm shift in parenting has been that it is no longer effective to use family honour, religion, fear of God or just parental authority to gain compliance from youngsters. The focus now has to be on the health risks and psycho-sexual fallout of behaviour as teenagers are taught to accept responsibility for their actions, writes Aruti Nayar.

HE recent diplomatic incident in New Delhi, in which a son of the Seneghalese Ambassador to India was accused of killing his Indian driver, and the resultant diplomatic furore bring into focus the question of diplomatic immunity to ambassadors and embassies. According to international rules, "Diplomatic officers accredited to a foreign government as ambassadors, are immune from the jurisdiction of all courts of the host state. The families and households of such diplomatic officers enjoy the same immunity".

VERYDAY a new theory is being put forward about snoring. Some of the causes commonly cited are air obstruction due to narrow nasal passage, enlarged tonsils, falling back of the tongue, micrognathia (small chin bone), sedation due to drugs and alcohol, bizarre sleeping posture and so on. Researchers also warn us about the consequences: divorce, sleep apnoea (cessation of breathing during sleep), heart diseases, sudden death, etc.

HERE were many surprises on this trip; a motoring event is just that, surprises and adventure. To begin with, we were the only people headed towards Jaipur and the desert. Everybody else was on the other side of NH 8, heading in the opposite direction, towards the hills.

OMETIMES, even great film producers and directors get it wrong. So when a tall, handsome young man with a classic chiselled face appeared for a test in the early forties, David O Selznick, the producer of Gone With the Wind was not impressed. No one knows how the rejected aspirant felt, but poetic justice was done when Alfred Hitchcock cast him as the leading man in the highly successful suspense film Spellbound in 1945.
