What is certain is that there wasn't a single chimpanzee that starred Chita in the film "Tarzan." Several monkeys alternated shooting and usually had at least two in the set of recording.In the Twitter account enabled in its name, the "movie star" is only recognized as "one of the chimpanzees used in the film 'Tarzan' of the 30".

According to media reports, the victim Hawa Akter Jui was left to bleed for about three hours after her husband cut off all the five fingers of her hand with a machete. The brutality did not stop there, the beast in human face also dumped the detached fingers into a dustbin. By the time the fingers were discovered, it was too late to attach them to the hand as all the cells of the fingers had become inactive.
It is really stupefying that when the government has been giving much emphasis on women’s empowerment, we still have to receive such shocking reports at regular intervals. There are laws for the protection of women, but for lack of strict enforcement, repression of women is going on in Bangladesh without any sign of abatement. The fact is, if the perpetrators are given exemplary punishment, then nobody will dare to commit such crime with impunity. However, the problem is also deeply rooted in the very social outlook towards women. Therefore, establishment of a society free from male domination is undoubtedly the ultimate solution of women repression.
We came to know that despite losing all the fingers of her right hand, Jui is very much determined about carrying on her studies. So we hope that apart from ensuring justice to her, the government will also extend all other necessary helps to enable her to fulfil her dream.

“Is there a global tipping point for frustration? Everywhere, it seems, people said they'd had enough,” -Time Editor Rick Stengel
“In North America and most of Europe, there are no dictators, and dissidents don't get tortured. Any day that Tunisians, Egyptians or Syrians occupy streets and squares, they know that some of them might be beaten or shot, not just pepper-sprayed or flex-cuffed. The protesters in the Middle East and North Africa are literally dying to get political systems that roughly resemble the ones that seem intolerably undemocratic to protesters in Madrid, Athens, London and New York City,” said the front article at Time magazine
“No one could have known that when a Tunisian fruit vendor set himself on fire in a public square, it would incite protests that would topple dictators and start a global wave of dissent. In 2011, protesters didn’t just voice their complaints; they changed the world.”
