Till the last breath Kalam Sir was thinking for India's development - Srijan Pal Singh

Dr APJ Abdul Kalam's demise which shook the entire nation and is seen as the greatest loss in recent times.



Who can describe the last day of Abdul Kalam Sir, but Srijan Pal Singh, consultant to the Bharat Ratna & Missile man; who was with him on his last journey. From the flight, he boarded on 27th July 2015 to Guhawati, to IIM-Shilong, where Kalam gave his last lecture, Srijan recollects his last memories, the last words he spoke before he collapsed into the podium.

What I will be remembered for, my memory of the last day with great Kalam sir. It has been eight hours since we last talked – sleep eludes me and memories keep flushing down, sometimes as tears.
Our day, 27th July, began at 12 noon, when we took our seats in the flight to Guhawati. Dr. Kalam was 1A and I was IC. He was wearing a dark colored “Kalam suit”, and I started off complimenting, “Nice color!” Little did I know this was going to be the last color I will see on him. Long, 2.5 hours of flying in the monsoon w…

Ex Supreme Court Judge Markandey Katju on Yakub Memon hanging

After RAW official B Raman, Asaduddin Owaisi and Salman Khan; Ex Supreme court judge Markandey Katju defending hanging of 12th March 1993 Bombay blast convict Yakub Memon. Here below is his opinion over Yakub Memon's hanging.

Markandey Katju shared his opinion over his official account of Facebook, below is the post he posted today 26th July 2015.

"My opinion :Yakub Memon has been convicted on very weak evidence.
Begunahon ka lahu piyo, izn-e-aam hai
I believe there has been gross travesty of justice in the case of Yakub Memon.
I have carefully studied the judgment of the Court. The evidence on which he has been found guilty is very weak. This evidence is (1) retracted confession of the co-accused, and (2) alleged recoveries.
As regards the first, everyone knows how 'confessions' are obtained by the police in our country--by torture. And torture is such a terrible thing that one will confess to anything under torture. Joan of Arc confessed to be a witch under torture. Mor…

Salman Khan defends Yakub Memon's hanging

In my last article, my concern was, if Yakub Memon deserves to be hanged as we all Indian agrees to it, we also agree to some other's execution.

I had suggested Babu Bajrangi's name, prime accused of Naroda Patiya Massacre, Swami Aseemanand's name, prime accused in Ajmer Sharif Blast, Malegaon blast, Mecca Masjid blast and Samjhauta Express bombings.

Today Bollywood actor Salman Khan came out defending Yakub Memon's hanging and in turn urging parading and hanging of Tiger Memon, who actually was directly involved in execution of 12th March 1993 blast in Bombay.

Salman Khan tweeted his stand on Yakub:
been wanting to tweet Tis fr 3 days n was afraid to do so but it involves a man's n family. Don't hang brother hang tha lomdi who ran away — Salman Khan (@BeingSalmanKhan) July 25, 2015 Salman Khan also urged Pakistan's PM Nawaz Sharif to handover Tiger Memon who actually deserves the fate, Yakub Memon is designed to face.

An open letter to Narendra Modi by TV actress Shruti Seth

Shruti Seth, an Indian television, VJ and film actress, best known for her role as Fatima "Fatty" in Fanaa (2006) with Aamir Khan and Kajol. She starred in Tara Rum Pum, produced by Yash Raj Films and made an appearance in Prakash Jha's film Raajneeti in 2010.  As a model, she did several commercials including Clean and Clear moisturiser, TATA Home Finance, Ponds Talc, Frooti, Lifebuoy Soap, ICICI Prudential Life Insurance, LG, Airtel, Mrs Marino Hair Softener, Stayfree Secure, Dominos etc.

But what made her trend across social media is her tweet Hashtag #selfieobsessed. Most probably referring to Prime Minister and for this, she had been challenged and been questioned by social media all around the world. To which she later tweeted

I had made an unsavoury comment about our Prime Minister by calling him - gasp - ‪#‎selfieobsessed‬ and asking him to choose reform over gimmickry. Was I wrong? Was I too harsh?.
This led to furious outrage against her by the Narendra Modi&#…

One day symbolic fast during Ramadan by Ex SC Judge Markandey Katju and other non muslims

An initiative by Ex Supreme Court Judge Markandey Katju to keep one day symbolic fast to bring communal harmony between Hindus and Muslims, during the month of Ramadan, in which Muslims keeps fast for the whole month of Ramadan.

Here is what Markandey Katju had to say on his symbolic 'Roza' and 'Vrat' initiative.
Why do I keep one-day Roza?
4.7.2015, Fremont, California
It is 3.40 a.m. and I am about to do my Sehri ( breakfast during Ramzan ).
Why do I, a confirmed atheist, keep one-day symbolic Roza during every Ramzan, and appeal to non-Muslims to do the same, while also appealing to non-Hindus to keep one day Navratri fast?
My answer: It is one dose of the antidote to the communal poison which was injected into us since 1857.
I have already mentioned that communalism was injected into us by the British since 1857. after the Great Mutiny.
By 1857 communalism had almost entirely disappeared in India. Hindus and Muslims lived peacefully like brothers and helped each …

Know about the founder of YogaLife Foundation Sanjeev Bhanot

At 62 years of age, Swiss Solar Impulse 2 pilot Andre Borschberg has made aviation history with a record-breaking solo flight across the Pacific that he has called "an interior journey".
After travelling more than 8,000km on the latest leg of the round-the-world trip, he arrived in Hawaii on Friday. His Pacific flight from Japan totalled 118 hours, almost five full days, smashing the previous record for the longest nonstop solo flight of 76 hours and 45 minutes set by US adventurer Steve Fossett in 2006.

The Swiss pilot's arduous journey was by no means in the lap of luxury.
It’s minus 20 degrees celsius, and you are at the height of Mount Everest. In 12 hours it will be plus 40 degrees and you will have repressurised to below 3,000m, only to repeat this cycle for five days! How do you survive?
For the pilots of Solar Impulse, the lifesaving techniques can be found in the asanas and pranayamas of yoga. Working with Sanjeev Bhanot, a professional yoga trainer with over 2…

The joint committee, which has submitted its recommendations to the government, has also proposed an automatic pay revision mechanism for parliamentarians like that of pay commission for government employees.The panel has also recommended that the daily allowance of Rs 2,000, which they get for attending the House during Parliament sessions should be increased substantially.
