As a child, Nyamaa Dolgorsuren was raised on the streets of Ulaanbaatar in Mongolia with her younger sister. Life was tough for the two siblings and there seemed little light at the end of the tunnel. That was until they were rescued by the Christina Noble Children’s Foundation (CNCF). “They came from a very, very abusive background and a very sad situation,” said Helenita Noble, CEO of the foundation. “Nyamaa especially was angry, she was provoked very easily.

Illustration by Trịnh Lập Outrage over a video of a man viciously beating his wife while she holds their infant baby went viral in Việt Nam over the last week or so, with people at home and abroad shocked by the brute’s savagery. As much as I would like to spread the message that a phenomenal TV series that ended the week before had shown Vietnamese men and fathers in a positive light, I was brought back to reality by this clip. The video captured the young family in their living room. At the start, the wife holds the baby in her arms walking around the room without much contentment. She seems to have given birth only a few months before, and is still in the postpartum period.

Tough time While there’s a lot of literature on … [Read more...] about A far-fetched domestic fantasy

The Saint-Vincent cemetery near Sacre-Coeur Basilica. — AFP PhotoViet Nam News PARIS — It’s a tough fit if you want to be buried in Paris. There are only 14 cemeteries in the French capital, and whether it’s under an overpass next to the Sacre-Coeur basilica in Montmartre, or under shady trees in trendy Montparnasse, the graveyards are mostly full. French people flock to visit buried relatives on All Saints’ Day on November 1, laying flowers on the tombs. But many Parisian cemeteries are nowadays mostly frequented by tourists, seeking out the last resting place of the rich or famous.
