Shah Rukh khan trouble in Kerala

Wednesday proved to be a bad day for the King Of Bollywood Shah Rukh Khan.

Shah Rukh Khan was invited by a textile showroom owner for the inauguration of the showroom. To this event, Shah Rukh Khan presented his recent hit song "Chhammak Chhallo" from the movie Ra.One with some skimpily clad artistes in the background dancing with him. This annoyed the police of Kerala and some people of Kerala ask for filing a case against him for the indecent representation of women. Police registered the case against Shah Rukh Khan and the textile showroom owner in connection with the violation of Indecent representation of woman act 1986 under section 3,6.

Though it's not new for celebrities like Shah Rukh Khan. And till now no response has come from the King of Bollywood for this case. May be his lawyer need to be present at the court for his case.
Many similar cases are registered against many of the celebrities, but none of these celebrities pays heed to these kinds of cases.

Know about Anna Hazare

Anna's verdict for Congress party government

After so many assurances, talks, letters, sense of house given to Anna, what he really got is nothing. So, Anna on this date 17th of December unable to control his anger and written again a letter to the Prime Minister saying, "Quit, we don't need a government like this." It is very much expected from an old man of 78 or so, how much he can fight for the same cause again and again. If he is believed, he has been fighting for this cause for more than 3 decades, that's really commendable. He may not enjoy this corruption-free India in his lifetime, he knows it well, but he surely wants a step for that India, which may be corruption free. "What's wrong in it, if a person thinks to make his country corruption-free."

It's now more than a year passed, govt has not shown any such great assurance from his side or has really shown the country his will to pass the bill. At least govt should have shown or made th…

What is the exact black money stashed in Swiss bank by Indians

Black money is the money which is earned through the black market and in which taxes have not been paid. In context to the amount of black money of India, different people have a different way of calculation for black money stashed in LGT, Liechtenstein. According to the IIM professor R Vaidyanathan, it is about 7,280,000 Crores or US$1.14 trillion. According to Swiss bank officials (unidentified source), it is about 65 lakh crores. According to the main opposition party of India BJP, it is about 25 lakh crores.

And going far ahead from all these great (mathematician of India) another mathematician Yogic Baba Ramdev through his wit calculated the amount to be 400 lakh crore. That’s about 16 times more than the amount calculated by BJP. Baba Ramdev is a real genius, though he also able to crack out the list of names who have stashed the black money in a Swiss bank, but now he is not in the mood to release the names and asking the Govt. to reveal it first.

Is FDI in retail in India beneficial?

From the economist point of view, if you consider FDI in retail, it is really a good and commendable step. FDI in India is a must, considering the economic crisis following India. India till now has not been affected by recession like the European countries faced it, Its now the second major recession in just three years including the recession on 2008. But India due to its strict economic policies survived both the recessions.

But its not a moment to be happy for India, as though recession of west did not hurt India largely, but the recession which is now approaching and ready to engulf India on its own is the inherent policies of Indian govt.
If by the end of 2012 govt of India don't take some bold steps to invite foreign investment, then there may be chances that India will too be engulfed into another recession created by his own inherent policies.

Govt of India need to take bold and strong steps like inviting major MNCs and manufacturing sectors who are waiting for Indian govt&#…

Quality of education in Odisha

Krishna Chandra Padhy :Do you think Quality of education in Odisha is degrading day by day?

Aahafaiz: @Krishna Chandra Padhy, You have raised a valid topic, but are you really concerned to the quality of education given in the primary schools of Odisha?
If your topic focuses on the quality of education given in the Govt primary schools of Odisha, then I completely agree with you. I too have noticed the absence and irregularity of teachers in schools. Quality is not degrading but the mentality of teachers and enthusiasm in teaching style has surely depreciated since 90's.
teachers in wand of some good rewards and promotion used to teach students, but now due to Govt's lack of any such incentives for the teachers and schools, teachers are now habituated with their daily works and don't expect much from govt. This lack of incentives and promotions has led the teachers to go on hibernation.
Govt should focus on the primary schools and their maintenance too, just creating a school …

Taslima Nasreen worse creature existing on planet earth

This lady Taslima Nasreen though is said to be brave, but I think is the weakest. She knows one thing and works on one philosophy that people are foolish and can be fooled easily. Thing you need to do is instigate something which not yet happened. Those who had been irritated with their life will sure come to you for rescue. What happened is that some people who come to know this fact that, this world is very diverse and full of beliefs and dis-beliefs starts working on one project which is least overtaken. She knew there are very few who are atheist and want to live life on their own, being thirsty whole life. If she start hating something than its by sure people will tend to flock towards her in opposition, simply cheap publicity. she knows Islam and chose this to be best, as this community is known for its strictness and fundamentalism.
Her point was clear she went right along her path and now she is one of the most infamous women in the planet. One of the most rude and heinous crea…

Photo realistic artist Dru Blair

This is NOT a Photograph!

Believe it or not, this is NOT a photograph. It’s the work of the incredibly talented airbrush artist Dru Blair from South Carolina.

This particular painting has been surrounded by controversy and disbelief as it’s made its way around the internet. It’s so realistic and so finely detailed that many people had trouble believing it is, in fact, a painting.

But Dru Blair, the artist responsible, is a well-known photo-realistic artist. He began the piece for a class but finished it later on his own. His amazing airbrush art has been featured in hundreds of advertisements, magazines and book covers. Aviation art is a favourite subject for the artist, and his first aviation painting, “Power,” is the highest-selling aviation print in the world.
