Fighting surgeons leave patient in the lurchBELGRADE (Reuters) - A routine appendix operation in Belgrade went badly wrong when two surgeons started fighting and stormed from the operating theater to settle their dispute outside, the daily Politika reported Wednesday.

Surgeon Spasoje Radulovic was operating when his colleague Dragan Vukanic entered and made a remark that started a quarrel, said the anesthesiologist on duty.

“At one moment Vukanic pulled the ear of the operating doctor, slapped him in the face and walked out,” she said.

Radulovic followed and an all-out fight ensued, resulting in bruises, a split lip, loose teeth and a fractured finger.

The operation was completed successfully by the attending assistant doctor.

Dead dad earns pension from the freezerMILAN (Reuters) - An Italian is suspected of hiding his dead father in a freezer for two years so he could keep collecting the old man’s pension.

Gaetano Sivieri confessed to police this week he had stashed his father’s body in an underground garage near the Alpine town of Aosta, media reports said.

“I needed the money,” the 63-year-old was quoted as saying by Corriere della Sera newspaper. News agency Ansa said he had drawn nearly 80,000 euros ($105,000) of pension. Sivieri, who faces charges of fraud and concealing a body, said he was driving his 91-year-old father home from a health clinic in January 2005 when he got the idea of hiding the body.

Parents as Friends? Not Always…

Parents as Friends? Not AlwaysCome to think of it, why should there be any reservations about the concept of ‘Parents as Friends’? Especially in the present day, when we have grown out of the parental generation of disciplinarians or those who set down rigid rules for the family. Parents today have grown up themselves with a mother and father who lavished them with love and only wanted their happiness and satisfaction.

Some of these parents underwent awesome sacrifices in order to send their children to the best schools and colleges. So why should the new generation of parents bring up their children with any different ideas? After all, if anything, there is now more money, more comfort and more luxury available. So shouldn’t this environment of plenty promote more ‘friendship’ among the two generations of kids and their parents, rather than reinforce older, more traditional power equations?

Lessons from 'Traffic Signal'Madhur Bhandarkar’s collage style of film making has been expressed another time in his latest film ‘Traffic Signal’. This film, an account of the people who are so much urban debris for busy office goers and householders in the metro cities, brought many things alive for me in an interesting way.

A painstaking disclaimer at the beginning of the film, posted by Madhur, declares that the film is not an attempt to ridicule or belittle the people on the streets. Good thing, he did that, because in the first few minutes, as the film establishes all the hundred ways in which poor people con city dwellers to part with their money, you begin to wonder whether it is a middle class diatribe against beggars.

Changing neighbourhoodI have just moved into a flat that is right next to blocks of Slum Clearance Board flats constructed by the TN government in the 1980s. The whole day, and well into the night, I can hear people discussing money and the lack of it, food and movies, their children and jobs, while the sound of the hand pump begins at four a.m and hardly stops even at midnight.

One would have thought that this is reason enough to get worked up about the lack of space and how awful it is to share with the millions. But I really like this new setting. At no time of the day or night do I feel alone. Having grown up in Mumbai, with its terrific density, living cheek by jowl with other human beings comes naturally to me.
