millions of people in the Southeast Asian country the day is incomplete without chewing the juicy teeth-staining parcels of betel leaf wrapped around areca nut and a slake of lime But Myanmar’s dedicated legions of red-toothed betel nut chewers are now having to swallow hard — at the thought of paying double for what’s known as "kun-ya" thanks to extreme weather that has caused a sharp spike in prices of the ingredients for the addictive stimulant A severe drought this summer wreaked havoc on betel leaf and areca nut farms which rely heavily on irrigation This was followed by violent rainstorms that debilitated the remaining crop A retail seller wraps "Kun-ya" at a market in Yangon AP Nowhere is the poor harvest more greatly felt than in Thanphyuyone a village where every morning farmers pick mature leaves that are lined inside bamboo baskets and sent to wholesale markets in nearby Yangon the country’s commercial capital "Betel farmers usually rely on the water from the village reservoir to grow betel leaves but as this year brought us drought we lost a huge amount of betel leaves and there was nothing we could do" said Kyi Lwin a 42-year-old betel farmer The extreme weather variations have been blamed on El Nino a warming of parts of the Pacific Ocean that changes weather worldwide The bright green betel leaves as large as an adult palm normally cost $180 to $250 per kilogram (22 pounds) But because of the shortage the price has gone up nearly four times to 11000 kyat or $9 per kilogram That’s as much as the daily wage of a construction worker "It has only happened this year" said Myo Lin Tun a seller in the Thirimingalar wholesale market in Yangon Chewing of kun-ya goes back centuries in Myanmar Every village town and city in the country has small kiosks that usually sell packs of four kun-ya portions for about 10 cents In Yangon 25-year-old construction worker Phyo They Paing grumbles that he now gets only half the usual bang for his buck "I used to get four packets for 100 kyats and I was happy with that" he says "But now I just get two I’m pretty disappointed with that" The betel leaf is wrapped around a mixture of areca nuts lime spices and sometimes tobacco Aficionados chew them throughout the day filling their mouths with a red sludge of betel juice and saliva that they dispose of with abandon in the open Great red streams of the juice line sidewalks bus stops walls public restrooms and everywhere else What’s left are teeth and gums stained red A recent Health Ministry and World Health Organization survey showed that 62 percent of men and 24 percent of women in Myanmar use smokeless tobacco products such as kun-ya carrying a serious risk of oral cancer Many who sport the giveaway red teeth are bus truck and taxi drivers who say its stimulant quality helps them stay alert Last month the government issued an order instructing all employees not to chew betel during office hours and not to allow betel vendors inside government facilities ARBIL/BAGHDAD (Reuters) – Ultra-radical Islamist militants in northern Iraq have destroyed a priceless collection of statues and sculptures from the ancient Assyrian era inflicting what an archaeologist described as incalculable damage to a piece of shared human history A video published by Islamic State on Thursday showed men attacking the artefacts some of them identified as antiquities from the 7th century BC with sledgehammers and drills saying they were symbols of idolatry "The Prophet ordered us to get rid of statues and relics and his companions did the same when they conquered countries after him" an unidentified man said in the video The smashed articles appeared to come from an antiquities museum in Mosul the northern city which was overrun by Islamic State last June a former employee at the museum told Reuters The militants shoved stone statues off their plinths shattering them on the floor and one man applied an electric drill to a large winged bull The video showed a large exhibition room strewn with dismembered statues and Islamic songs played in the background Lamia al-Gailani an Iraqi archaeologist and associate fellow at the London-based Institute of Archaeology said the militants had wreaked untold damage "It’s not only Iraq’s heritage: it’s the whole world’s" she said "They are priceless unique It’s unbelievable I don’t want to be Iraqi any more" she said comparing the episode to the dynamiting of the Bamiyan Buddhas by the Afghan Taliban in 2001 As well as Assyrian statues of winged bulls from the Mesopotamian cities of Nineveh and Nimrud Gailani said the Islamic State hardliners appeared to have destroyed statues from Hatra a Hellenistic-Parthian city in northern Iraq dating back around 2000 years Eleanor Robson professor of Ancient Near Eastern History at University College London also said on Twitter that statues from Hatra and Nineveh had been wrecked though she added that some objects shown in the video were modern replicas The director of UNESCO’s Iraq office Axel Plathe would not comment on the content of the video saying it has yet to be verified But he described the damage to Iraq’s heritage since Islamic State overran Mosul last year as an attempt "to destroy the identity of an entire people" Plathe said UNESCO was working with Iraqi authorities and governments of neighbouring countries to crack down on the smuggling of artefacts from areas under Islamic State control and had alerted auction houses to be on the lookout for stolen items Islamic State espouses a fiercely purist school of Sunni Islam deeming many other Muslims to be heretics Its fighters have destroyed Shi’ite and Sufi religious sites and attacked churches and other shrines in the parts of Syria and Iraq under their control "Muslims these relics you see behind me are idols that were worshipped other than God in the past centuries" the unidentified man in the Islamic State video said "What is known as Assyrians Akkadians and others used to worship gods of rain farming and war other than God and pay all sorts of tributes to them" Last week Islamic State released another video showing a pile of books in flames An employee of the Mosul museum said he feared these books were manuscripts from the library of endowments although the library itself was still in tact last week (Writing by

Shivakoti director of Save Gangamaya Top News Save Gangamaya a documentary about a Nepali woman who has been fighting to get justice for her teenage son who was killed by Maoists will be screened at Gyaan Adab Kalyaninagar on June 30 Nepal-based filmmaker Gopal Shivakoti describes his documentary as “about a wonderful mother that the world’s mothers can be proud of” In June 2004 Gangamaya Adhikari’s son was kidnapped and shot dead by a group of Maoists in Chitwan in Nepal Running from pillar to post for years to bring her son’s killers to justice Adhikari and her husband Krishna Prasad decided to fast unto death in October 2013 Following government assurances the couple broke their fast on the 47th day but their demands were unfulfilled and they resumed the fast within a few days The couple was admitted to Bir Hospital in Nepal In the 11th month Krishna Prasad passed away as his body was no longer able to absorb food which he was being forcefully fed through a pipe The government stepped in with assurances and Gangamaya agreed to discontinue her strike However by August 2016 Gangamaya had not received the justice she sought and she resumed her fast only breaking it a month later after being persuaded by the activists and lawyers who were supporting her Talking about what triggered the decision to make the documentary Shivakoti says “Gangamaya’s decade-long struggle for justice and rule of law really inspired me to cover her story” The film he says is a call to human rights activists and the international community to pay adequate attention to this case and to light a beacon of hope for the remaining victims of Maoists Talking about the process of making the film Shivakoti says “I didn’t have to go through any research process as such because Gangamaya and her husband’s case is well-known and has been covered by Nepali and international media Though I didn’t face any challenges during the shooting it wouldn’t have been possible to make this documentary if I hadn’t disguised myself as a human rights activist (to record clips for the human rights archive)” Save Gangamaya has been submitted to more than 300 film festivals worldwide Among the awards that the documentary has won include Audience Choice Award at Women’s Voices Now 2017 and Best Documentary Feature at DIY Film Festival 2017 Besides it has been selected for numerous
