The Wider Image: Venezuelans seek joy amid the chaos
A night at a bar is interrupted by a power outage, going to a baseball game is prohibitively expensive, and a trip to a nearby beach requires months of savings. But many Venezuelans have not given up on finding ways to smile. Despite an economic crisis that has led to shortages of food and medicine and has prompted more than three million to emigrate, Venezuelans are seeking ways to have fun and spend time with family in the hope of easing their discomfort. Still, the increased frequency of blackouts and a political showdown between the socialist government and the opposition has cast a cloud of uncertainty, leaving many Venezuelans bereft of simple pleasures. Venezuela fell to the 108th place in the 2019 World Happiness Report prepared by the United Nations, down from 102nd place in 2018. In the Western hemisphere, only Haiti was below the oil-rich nation, ranking 147th out of 156 countries studied by the U.N. REUTERS/Ivan Alvarado SEARCH "HAPPY ALVARADO" FOR THIS STORY.

Activists from India's opposition Congress party shout slogans during a protest demanding resignation of Madhya Pradesh state Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan in Bhopal, India, July 7, 2015. The deaths of a number of witnesses in a massive fraud case surrounding cheating at college and government jobs has become the latest source of discomfort for India's ruling party, already on the defensive over influence trafficking allegations. Investigators say thousands of people got jobs or medical degrees from systematic exam cheating that generated millions of dollars in bribes in the state of Madhya Pradesh. At least 36 people connected to the case in the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) run state have died since the scam was first brought to light. More than 2,000 have been arrested in relation to the scam. Chouhan, a popular BJP leader, denies wrongdoing. But on Tuesday he buckled to pressure and said the inquiry should be handed to the Central Bureau of Investigation to avoid suspicion of political meddling.

RNPS - PICTURES OF THE YEAR 2014 - PHOTOGRAPHERS' STORY
Uttara Saud, 14, sits inside a Chaupadi shed in the hills of Legudsen village in Achham District in western Nepal in this February 16, 2014 file picture.

Chaupadi is the practice of treating women as impure and untouchable when they menstruate. In isolated regions like Achham, chaupadi has been a custom for centuries. But those from Nepal's cities or from abroad often don't know what it means.

When women go through their monthly cycle, they are not allowed to enter a house or pass by a temple. They cannot use public water sources, touch livestock, attend social events like weddings, or touch others. And at night, they are not allowed to sleep in their homes - instead they have to stay in sheds or outbuildings, often with no proper windows or doors.
As I worked on this story, I met many women who had been affected by the tradition. Uttara Saud, a shy 14-year-old girl, told me that she has to miss school during her monthly cycle.
I realized that chaupadi does not just bring discomfort and isolation to the women practicing it - sometimes they even have to pay with their lives. Isolated and poorly protected from the elements, they can be killed by snake bites, freezing weather, wild animal attacks, or fires they light to keep warm, which can cause blazes or suffocation in small sheds with poor ventilation. There have also been cases of these women, cut off from their families, being the victims of rape. - Navesh Chitrakar REUTERS/Navesh Chitrakar (NEPAL - Tags: SOCIETY TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY)

Colombia's former President Alvaro Uribe attends a meeting with businessmen and politicians in Cancun June 9, 2011. Uribe, who is unhappy about the direction his successor, current President Juan Manuel Santos, is taking, has been showing his displeasure by tweeting. Snide messages to his 470,000 plus Twitter followers are keeping Uribe in the limelight to the discomfort of Santos, Uribe's former defense minister. The microblogging feud, ironically, is helping Santos break with his past in violence-ridden Colombia and forge his own path as leader of a booming mineral-rich economy. Picture taken June 9, 2011.
