SRINAGAR: Women folk now enroll themselves in martial art classes to get self defense trainings. Self defense strategies and techniques work equally for both men and women, but let’s face it women need to learn them more than men because they face many incidents of verbal and sexual harassments in their everyday life. Statistics shows that one in three women will be the victim of some violent type of attack in her lifetime. Most of the self defense courses focus on skills for quickly and efficiently attack the attacker. These courses also include some methods for preventing a confrontation from turning physical in the first place. There are number of effective self defense concepts and techniques which these classes incorporated them into their curriculum.

Everybody in our society even parents of a girl tell her always try to evade from a situation where you find yourself in a dangerous atmosphere. But it is not as easier as it looks to steer away from a threat of a psycho attacker. During an assault a woman not only face the physical misbehave but she also experience fear and panic, along with a natural adrenaline rush. You may experience tunnel vision, auditory exclusion and loss of fine motor skills. It's not possible to see and hear, and complex martial arts techniques to perform in every situation. But a woman always should have trust on herself. Women at times ignore the little voice that tells them trouble is coming. Your instinct is the best detector of danger. The next time you hear that little voice, listen what it is saying.

Don't wait to be assaulted first then you join the self defense classes. Every day we came to know such cruel kind of women assaults through papers, TV and from social sites. A physical assault is not bearable in any way they give you goose bumps and only when you just watch or listen about them. Attackers search for women who appear frightened, confused or distracted. Attacker wants an easy mark. By walking with confidence and awareness--looking around and keeping your head up you will reduce the likelihood of becoming target in first place. Most of the attackers fell confident that you won't defend yourself, and you should capitalize on that misconception. If you show a martial art stance, it immediately tells the attacker that you can fight. Let you use your secret weapon as the element of surprise for him.

  A woman's big problem is that she considers herself very weak, helpless and threatened, which cause harm only to her. In many situations a woman doesn’t have time to wait for a hero who saves her. They should be quick and fast in their every move whether it is a martial art technique or just a simple thronging of an object towards the attacker, if you cannot do big but you still can injure him and that should be very serious injury so that it gives you some more time to show your next move or you can exit from the place. Body parts don't know how they get injured whether it is by a rod, chair, a brick or even a kick to his sensitive parts, but it should be in a full force.

Ajaz Ah Bhat Secretary General World Tang-ta Federation talking to Kashmir News Bureau said, "We teach martial arts to both girls and boys, but for girls we prepare them for special training i.e. street fight self defense where they can bite the attacker use some bad words for physiological effect .If attacker try to hold the Girl she can spit on the face of attacker he leaves the girl and try to wipe off the face at that time she gets some more seconds to use another move or she can run away," he added.

Stop showing your weak emotions, tears and fear. It is the do or die situation where self defense techniques will only help you when you are confident about yourself in a violent encounter. Self defense does not mean you will be able to successfully defend yourself, its yourself confidence which will succeed you. Self defense is using your smart not only your fists. So if you find yourself in a dangerous situation and you don't know any technique ladies just use your smart brain.

SRINAGAR: Cinemas and theatres are considered as part of the entertainment industry which helps not only in entertaining a person but also adds educative value on a particular subject, the movie is based on. Till 90s the Cinemas were used to entertain people of Kashmir, however, soon after the eruption of armed insurgency, cinemas were declared as un-Islamic, despite the fact many Muslim dominated countries including Pakistan, Iran and now Saudi Arabia generates huge revenue from Cinemas.

Pertinently, the cinema halls of the Valley including Regal Cinema, Broadway Cinema, Palladium Cinema and Neelam Cinema in Srinagar were closed following a militant outfit ‘Allah Tigers’ terming cinemas as ‘un-Islamic’ announced a ban on cinemas. Most of the Cinemas were later torched or either occupied by the government forces. Time and again the attempts were made by the successive government to re-open the Cinemas, however, no major success was achieved in this regard. After year 2000 two cinemas were reopened in summer capital Srinagar but were closed following the political uncertainty.

The erstwhile government led by Mehbooba Mufti tried to create a conducive atmosphere to functionalize cinema halls with its spokesman Naeem Aktar for the first time calling that the entire society should come together to ensure children are not kept away from genuine entertainment. "We have denied our young generation cinema (halls). The whole world has cinemas, even Pakistan, and Saudi Arabia is also opening them now. I do not know why people do not think about opening cinemas here," Akhtar had said.

Besides, the political uncertainly, the mute approach of civil society by taking it as a ‘controversial issue,’ the main reason of not opening the cinemas is considered as ‘misleading tactic.’ The separatist political leadership believes that if cinemas were made functional in Kashmir the development will send a wrong message to the world. They argue that if cinemas are opened in Kashmir it will be presented as a sign of normalcy in Kashmir which is not true.

Not only the political perspective, many leaders in separatist group believe that re-opening cinemas in Kashmir will start an era of immorality, even as a popular leader in Kashmir slammed Saudi Arabia for re-opening the Cinemas after 30 yrs. Despite the fact that we have now cinemas in our pockets in form of Mobile phones and Bollywood continue to shoot in Kashmir amid huge rush of local fans the opening of Cinemas in Kashmir remains a distant dream.
