~ Read how ridiculed Sikh Balpreet Kaur responded with taunts of her picture taken without her knowledge (a lesson in how to reply bullies)
Hey, guys. This is Balpreet Kaur, the girl from the picture. I actually didn’t know about this until one of my friends told on facebook. If the OP wanted a picture, they could have just asked and I could have smiled :) However, I’m not embarrassed or even humiliated by the attention [negative and positive] that this picture is getting because, it’s who I am. Yes, I’m a baptized Sikh woman with facial hair.

Foreign airlines flying into the country have raised the alarm over the flooding of the Lagos airport runway whenever it rains.
The international carriers said the situation had led to loss of huge revenue because often times, their aircraft had to hover in the air until the rain subsided, while at times, they had to be diverted to neighbouring countries to refuel.
Speaking at a news conference in Lagos on Thursday, the airlines, under the aegis of the Association of Foreign Airlines and Representatives, called on aviation authorities in the country to address the problem, as the situation constituted safety hazards to the flying public.
