  1. Amid the Coronavirus outbreak, a lot of people have been resorting to rather bizarre ways to spread awareness about the virus or to simply lighten the mood. We have been hearing many Indians singing the corona bhajan âKitho Aaya Coronaâ and not to forget Ramdas Athawaleâs âCoronavirus poemâ. Now, following the footsteps of India, Pakistan isnât far behind as recently, a Pakistani bureaucrat shared a song to create awareness about the pandemic. The only catch is that the tunes are taken from Bollywood megastar Shah Rukh Khanâs song âSuno Na Suno Naâ from the film Chalte Chalte. Hereâs the video of the original song- Pakistanâs Deputy Commissioner Hafizabad Naveed Shahzadâs Coronavirus song was recently shared by a Pakistani Commentator, Ansar Abbasi, on Twitter. Check out the video here- In a unique fashion, the Deputy Commissioner Hafizabad Naveed Shahzad delivers public service message on Corona virus. pic.twitter.com/MRvvvHJ882 â Ansar Abbasi (@AnsarAAbbasi) March 18, 2020 The song is catchy and tells people to follow simple yet vital instructions on staying safe from the virus. The video has gone viral and has garnered over 130.2K views and why wouldnât it? Itâs a Bollywood song! Turns out, people in Pakistan are in love with the song and find it very impressive. Hereâs what they have to say- Okay... Very well conveyed.. Excellent DC Sb !! â Different Angle (@AchayDinAaingay) March 18, 2020 Thatâs true. He has conveyed the entire message on combating the #coronavirus splendidly in a way all Pakistaniâs can understand. Excellent â ÙÙÚ©Malik (@Malik__73) March 18, 2020 Umm.,.okay. Very unique and catchy. We need more officers like him. Full marks for the idea. â Rehman Aziz (@RehmanA83) March 18, 2020 Thatâs our song yaar⦠Itâs a truly excellent video, makes you want to watch it over and over again. â ÙÙÚ©Malik (@Malik__73) March 18, 2020 Hmm.

  2. It's hard to remember the moment when the words following jana gana mana… became second nature to me. Was it the preparatory school teacher who worked her magic and helped me commit the entire composition to memory when I couldn't even remember all the letters in my full name? Or was it even earlier than that, when Ma would sing it aloud at home and urge me to repeat the song of the nation after her? © BBC For most of us, recollecting the exact moment when our mind gave way to the national anthem verbatim, is a rather difficult one. But you see, that's how it's been. It was the mind that caught onto the words, while the heart was kept out of the loop from the start. We know our rashtriya gaan by heart, but is our heart in it? © Twitter Today, nobody needs to be told twice that we ought to stand up for the national anthem, that there are proper times and places for one to play/sing it, that the national anthem demands a certain kind of respect and that most people expect fellow Indians to show that respect, especially when in public. The national anthem is a big deal and here's why. A national anthem is the song of the people. Often soaked in patriotic fervour, the anthem is representative of a country's history, culture, tradition, and beliefs. Therefore, it becomes an emblem of national identity and is held dear by citizens and the government alike. © Rediff The national anthem is so powerful that it can bring an entire nation together with one song, reminding them of their country's glory and heritage. The anthem is used to evoke pride and feelings of belongingness and unity when sung by one and all, regardless of their caste, creed or gender. But there is more. © YouTube What makes India and our national anthem all the more invaluable is the fact that the subcontinent is known for its diversity; be it ethnic, religious, linguistic or even cultural. For ages, India has shown the world how a hundred contradictions can exist peacefully together, living and building a greater nation in harmony. India's national anthem literally spells it all out. Here is what our national anthem means, literally. You are the ruler of the minds of all people, Dispenser of India's destiny. Your name rouses the hearts of Punjab, Sindh, Gujarat and Maratha, Of the Dravida and Odisha and Bengal; It echoes in the hills of Vindhya and the Himalayas, Mingles in the music of Ganga and Yamuna and is chanted by The waves of the Indian sea. They pray for your blessings and sing your praise. The saving of all people waits in your hand, You are the dispenser of India's destiny. Victory, victory, victory to you. It's a hymn to India, the pride and joy of every individual who lives on its land, breathes its free air and collectively works to bring more glory to its name. There is no distinction between those who call India their motherland, their homeland, their home. © Twitter Perhaps understanding the true essence of our anthem will remind us to put all else beyond our limited scope of worldview and come together to celebrate our country's greatest strength - we are all for this country, this country is for us all.

  3. Despite tense lines drawn between anti-CAA & NRC protesters and police forces across the country, a few stories of peace and camaraderie have surfaced through a week of national outrage. In a move that's won hearts and become viral across the last few hours, Bengaluru's DCP Chetan Singh Rathore appealed for peace and trust across both sides of the fence, by leading a chorus of the Indian national anthem. The Commissioner can be heard saying: “When you are part of any group, you might get swayed by mob mentality. And there can also be a few hiding among you with that mentality. And if that person takes advantage of this, all of us will get beaten up.” “You are right, you are right,” agreed the protestors. The DCP further said, “Now, if you trust me, then I will sing a song. And all the countrymen will stand with me.” As he began singing, the protesters also joined him. In a touching moment of solidarity, the protestors sang through all five stanzas of the anthem. Several protesters were agitated as around 100 people, including eminent historian Ramchandra Guha, were detained by the cops. They later vacated the area peacefully, according to news agency ANI. Historian Ram Guha detained by police for protesting peacefully... It's all caught on camera. A completely peaceful, unprovoked protest by a man of such an age and this is how police treats himðpic.twitter.com/llR8IkO41S — Dhruv Rathee (@dhruv_rathee) December 19, 2019 Meanwhile, DCP Rathore blew up on social media - with several Indians from both sides appreciating the peaceful way in which he managed to earn the trust of Bengaluru's protesters. #WATCH Karnataka: DCP of Bengaluru(Central),Chetan Singh Rathore sings national anthem along with protesters present at the Town Hall in Bengaluru, when they were refusing to vacate the place. Protesters left peacefully after the national anthem was sung. #CitizenshipAmendmentAct pic.twitter.com/DLYsOw3UTP — ANI (@ANI) December 19, 2019 #WATCH Karnataka: DCP of Bengaluru(Central),Chetan Singh Rathore sings national anthem along with protesters present at the Town Hall in Bengaluru, when they were refusing to vacate the place. Protesters left peacefully after the national anthem was sung. #CitizenshipAmendmentAct pic.twitter.com/DLYsOw3UTP — ANI (@ANI) December 19, 2019 Others remained skeptical, however. Sir @HMOIndia, Seeing a lot of videos of poIice being assauIted, stoned, Iync**d by vioI**t mob despite 144. Such incidents are incredibIy demoralising for our forces. If permission was given to f*re on vioI**t mob during Jat agitation and Ram Rahim sentencing, what stops now? — THE SKIN DOCTOR (@theskindoctor13) December 19, 2019 Meanwhile, at Delhi's Jantar Mantar, a similar incident took place, this time led by the protesters. In a country with over 50 percent population under the age of 25, the young are leading the way in teaching how to engage, talk to each other. This one where they convince @DelhiPolice to sing the Indian national anthem. Small lesson for the police there! #CAAProtest pic.twitter.com/cGUEo5brmD — Neha Dixit (@nehadixit123) December 19, 2019 View the full article
  4. Every time you open the newspaper, there's a report on crime against a woman, be it sexual or physical. India is slowly regressing towards 'no country for women' and that makes us really sad. But even though you read the word rape ever so often in the Indian context, rape is a global reality and in some countries the number of rapes are as many or more than in India. © Facebook/El Comercio While we blame the authorities for not keeping our surroundings secure, we do know that building a mass movement makes a larger impact than anything else, more than waiting for authorities to implement proper safety measures around the city, which have failed us miserably in the past. That's why on November 20, women protesters came out on to the streets of the city of Santiago, Chile, reciting powerful words of a poem titled 'A Rapist On Your Way'. The women wearing black were blindfolded, all of them wearing lipstick and chanting 'El violador eres tu (The rapist is you).' © Facebook/El Comercio The protest was organised by Las Tesis, a women's collective in Santiago, who got thousands of women together on the streets to start a movement which has today become a global outcry, especially the words of the anthem the women were heard singing which have picked up a grave momentum and have been chanted all over the world. The videos from the protest went viral all over and because India is going through the same situation, reached the ears of our women, and rightfully so! They say empathy during a difficult situation heals everything in time and while there's a long way to go where healing is concerned for the years of subjugation and violence women have undergone, India could heavily relate to the Chilean protest and how! After the Hyderabad rape of the vet, where her body was tormented and burnt and the Unnao rape victim's death recently after she was stabbed and set ablaze, India's outrage will never cease to exist, at least for another decade or so, or till things become better. So, on December 7, 2019, a group of Indian women kept the anthem alive, by getting out on the streets in Delhi's Jantar Mantar, to chant their own version of the Chilean 'A Rapist In Your Way', complete with blindfolds and slogans. Hundreds gathered for a flash mob protest at Jantar Mantar against rapes and the complete breakdown of law to bring justice to rape victim families on a day when #Unnao rape victim, who was brutally burnt, lost her life. #ReporterDiary (@milan_reports) pic.twitter.com/aHs9EYfoiu — India Today (@IndiaToday) December 7, 2019 The Indian chapter was held at Jantar Mantar, Connaught Place at 3pm, and it built enough momentum with people pouring in as and when. Even men joined the slogan, echoing the same sentiment and it was the best form of unity we've seen, where gender roles and biases are concerned in the country. The Indian chapter was titled 'A Rapist in Your Way Intervention India Chapter In Solidarity'. © Facebook/El Comercio The protest aimed to address violence of any form against women in the country and it really fell on deaf ears when everyone was chanting it together. “And the fault wasn't mine, not where I was, not how I dressed And the fault wasn't mine, not where I was, not how I dressed And the fault wasn't mine, not where I was, not how I dressed And the fault wasn't mine, not where I was, not how I dressed The rapist is you. The rapist is you. It's the cops, The judges, The state, The president. The oppressive state is a rapist. The oppressive state is a rapist.” While this poem may not mean anything to a few, it actually is a solid mirror that reflects our society. It's not how women dress, or carry themselves or what they do that 'provoke' the men. It's what they expect from the government and the authorities, when they're helplessly tortured and tormented. And sadly so, the authorities and the government have always failed them. The state has failed them. While 'enough is enough' has also become a popular slogan in the country, casual sexism, oppression and harassment still happen openly all over, apart from more heinous crimes like rape. We aspire to live in a country where women are free to walk, talk, dress, have ***, most importantly, breath and believe in themselves with confidence and a heightened sense of self and that will only happen if we let go of archaic norms from the society and newer ones, where women are respected and cared for, take shape.

  5. I am sure my school wasn't the only one that had the ritual of morning assemblies. You might like it or hate it, but I don't think you can forget those days easily. Keeping your bags in the classroom and then gathering in the school courtyard, early in the morning. It was a ritual that each kid religiously followed. Every morning, the assembly would begin with our Principal's speech and end with everyone singing the National Anthem. Back then, most of us would get away with only lip sync, and some would only hum while the rest of the crowd sang it dedicatedly. Twitter This video of the kid from Arunachal Pradesh trying his level best to sing the National Anthem reminds us of how we were as kids. From mixing up a few words to forgetting some lines, but still continuing with whatever he knows; this kid's innocent attempt at singing 'Jana Gana Mana' has brought a smile on everyone's face. He puts his heart and soul into singing the National Anthem and his infectious smile at the video says it all. This kid from #ArunachalPradesh singing Jana Gana Mana is the cutest thing you will see... pic.twitter.com/r6AgfOBQDy — Anupam Bordoloi (@asomputra) May 8, 2019 People on the internet are already in love with this kid and we can completely understand why. ननà¥à¤¹à¥ नाà¤à¤°à¤¿à¤ à¤à¥ सलाम — Uma Prakash (@ojhaup) May 9, 2019 At that age I did not know that much too ð³ð¤¦ð»‍âï¸ Kids these days are smart ð — Mariner (@JustMariner) May 8, 2019 I've seen it a few times already.

  6. AR Rahman is a great musician and composer, no one can deny that, but he may have missed the mark on his latest release big time. The 'Avengers Anthem' dropped yesterday and well, turns out it was the biggest joke this April Fool's day. From not being able to differentiate it from, say an IPL song, to just basically the entire desi fandom being so disappointed, I would just like to say, 'Avengers: Endgame' deserved better. Some people are still convinced that the song was just an elaborate prank for April 1st and the real song will come out soon because let's be real, this can't be it. People on Twitter are not holding back when talking about how much they actually hated this 'Avengers Anthem' and who can blame them? After listening to "Avengers Anthem" of A R Rahaman Me:- pic.twitter.com/7kSeEMyhiV — Rahbar Raza (@RbRaza007) April 1, 2019 It better be. That Avengers anthem by AR Rehman is an April Fool's joke, right? — Shriti ð¼ (@Zugambi) April 1, 2019 Okay. Cringe-worthy......ARR lost it completely....song is nothing special to marvel .....@Russo_Brothers @arrahman #MarvelAnthem @MarvelStudios — Vivek Swaminathan (@thetreadster) April 1, 2019 Drop the real one. Haha.. nice April Fool joke.. you got us ðð Now release the actual anthem.. — Vinit Tibrewal (@vinittibrewal) April 1, 2019 Another comparison. I was looking forward for this anthem.. But it Sounds like upcoming elections promo.. ð #generalelection2019 — Sandesh Sawal (@sandeshsawal) April 1, 2019 Here's hoping. After listening to this Thanos will wipeout the remaining half of the universe ðð#MarvelAnthem — suru (@nomad_soul_) April 2, 2019 It's not a sports event. Someone pls add a dislike button on Twitter. I survived no longer than the first 30 secs of the song. For someone who has been reading Marvel comics for almost 15 yrs, this is the opposite of special. @Russo_Brothers c'mon guys !!! This is a world cup anthem, not Avengers. — Saptarshi Chatterjee (@Saptarshi8290) April 2, 2019 Not a fan. That DC comment tho.
  7. A few days ago, we shared the news with you guys that music maestro AR Rahman is teaming up with Marvel, to create a special anthem for all the desi fans of 'Avengers: Endgame'. According to reports, the special track was going to be released on April 1 in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. Turns out the Russo brothers did not pull an April Fool's Day prank on us. Marvel Studios The special song dropped just now and to be honest the song is good, but not something we were expecting to go with the theme of Avengers. The song features AR Rahman as a part of flash mob walking through the streets and singing 'Roke na rukenge ab to yaara', with stills of Thanos and the Avengers plugged in between. Marvel Studios The moment I heard the song, the first thing that came to my mind is that the superheroes are not going to 'avenge the fallen', but actually gearing up for a cricket match against Thanos. Given that the IPL season is on, if BCCI plays this track in a stadium during a match, it will sound like an IPL anthem of a cricket team. Having said that, it is one of those songs that you don't like initially, but grows on you gradually.
  8. In 2017, Marvel associated with the legendary singer Baapi Lahiri for 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2'. Well, technically Bappi Da aka the man with a golden voice and a golden wardrobe wasn't a part of the movie. It was his song 'Jhoom Jhoom Jhoom Baba' that was featured in the trailer. Fast forward to the present and another legendary artist is all set to associate with the upcoming movie 'Avengers: Endgame'. Instagram Reportedly, Marvel and music maestro AR Rahman are teaming up to create a special anthem for all the Indian fans of 'Avengers: Endgame'. The song that will come out in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu will be releasing on April 1. We hope it's not an April Fool's Day joke. According to Hindustan Times, the Oscar-winning composer said, "Being surrounded by Marvel fans in my own family, there was too much pressure to come with something really satisfying and apt for Avengers: Endgame. I hope Marvel aficionados and music lovers enjoy the track." Marvel Studios With only a month left for the release of one of the biggest superhero movies, we desi fans can't wait to hear Rahman's 'Marvel'ous track and Thanos snapping his fingers to the tune. Directed by the Russo brothers (Joe and Anthony), 'Avengers: Endgame' is releasing in India on April 26.
  9. 'Game of Thrones' is hands down one of the most popular TV series of recent times, and we simply cannot ignore the ardent fan following the show enjoys. From mind-boggling fan theories to crazy fans going out of their way to prove their loyalty, 'Games of Thrones' can boast of it all. © HBO However, much like it is the case with most fandoms, GOT fans have also proven their allegiance to the show time and again. So it is only expected that the makers of 'Game of Thrones' be gracious towards this outpouring of faith and support from fans all around the world. Well, seems like the GOT team has taken note of its fans' undying love for the show, and they decided to share it with the rest of the world. So HBO recently released its own 'Fan Anthem' #ForTheThrone on GOT's official YouTube channel, ahead of the premiere of the last season in April. The video is a visual montage of tributes GOT fans paid to show, and the best part is that it includes the musical tribute of a 18-year-old Kashmiri boy. Sufiyan Malik from Srinagar in Kashmir can be seen in the video, playing the traditional Rabab, which has been taken from his Game of Thrones tribute video called 'The Cure'. As if the haunting and soulful musical tribute itself was not enough, the video play out is absolutely stunning with its picturisation, and choice of location. But what's more, Tyrion and the Night King also make a cameo appearance in the tribute video! You gotta check out the tribute, 'cause Sufiyan Malik did all of us GOT fans out there real proud.
  10. Amitabh Bachchan is more than the superstar that he is on-screen. Fans have milling outside his Juhu mansion for years now, and the Sunday ritual holds a special place in the hearts of those hundreds of people and the veteran actor alike. The reason why this admiration never ceases but only continues to grow, is simply because the actor is involved in a lot more than just movies and ad campaigns. Sr. Bachchan is constantly involved in a number of social projects that don't stem from personal or commercial gains, and it is these actions that don't skip people's attention, urging them to fall deeper in love with the person that Amitabh Bachchan is. Sr. Bachchan again stepped up his game with his recent appearance in a video with differently abled children, wherein all of them performed the National Anthem in sign language. The actor took to Twitter to retweet the video which was originally posted by a fan of AB. The National Anthem .. our pride, our identity, our liberation, our belief, our self esteem .. BUT MUCH much MORE IN THE EYES OF THOSE, THAT CANNOT HEAR OR SPEAK !! .. my privilege, my honour .. my INDIAð®ð³ð®ð³ð®ð³ https://t.co/i9RTUS5PaT — Amitabh Bachchan (@SrBachchan) January 30, 2019 The video shows AB and the other kids in white, against the backdrop of the Red Fort, as the endearing rendition plays along with some of them joining him in the act, while others sang the national anthem in the background. The peace and pride that the performance fills our hearts with, is simply touching, and other Twitter users haven't shied away from expressing their appreciation towards AB's association with this video which the actor said he was “honoured” to be a part of. Sir u r diamond of india.I pray to god u live long life and got tramandous success in ir life. I m proud of u sir. U r the proud of pur nation. Salute u sir. — kuldeep tiwari (@kuldeep52368021) January 30, 2019 Thank you for the lovely video .. you have learned very well how to speak the language of the deaf-mute ..

We all need to be little more sensitive towards differently abled ppl like this ð — PreetKð (@Preetkaur3884) January 31, 2019 Sir, it was simply fabulous; I know it's difficult to recite it with the rhythm of national anthem, but you did it flawlessly. ðð — Chitta Ranjan Rath (@chitta74) January 31, 2019 Amitji, your performance, energy , precision are par excellence. — Shrikant Paygavhane (@patilshrikant) January 31, 2019
  11. Neha Kakkar just dropped a bomb with the revamp of Aankh Marey used in the movie 'Simmba' and we can't help but listen to that peppy number on loop. Can you blame us? Kakkar's voice is absolutely phenomenal and we are already choreographing dance moves in our head. And if you're a big Kakkar fan who is now left wanting for more of her powerful voice, here's the big news that'll make your week and your playlist a little more interesting. Kakkar has released her first ever song for a web series and surprise, surprise it is for Mirzapur - the Amazon Prime Original series that has been the talk of the town since November 16. What makes this awesome? The 'Mirzapur' anthem - Bhaiyaji Ka Raaj - is gritty, outrageous and every other synonym that defines bold, all hail Kakkar! Her voice is fierce and by the way, the lyrics by Pankaj Krishna are extremely savage, but who's complaining? The song effortlessly integrates the storyline of 'Mirzapur' - the domination of Kaleen Bhaiya (played by Pankaj Tripathi), the violence, the gang war and much more. Apart from this, what a brilliant job by composer Sandeep Chowta! The song, you'll realise, has so many layers - the brass drops, the nuclea-esque tone, the rhythmicality and the tempo. In short, the 'Mirzapur' Anthem is going to get stuck in your head for a very, very long time. So here's the deal. If you're a Kakkar and a 'Mirzapur' fan, Amazon Prime Video has dropped the anthem of the hour and you need to listen to it right now.
  12. Among all the rivalries in the world of cricket, nothing comes close to the thrill and excitement that an India vs Pakistan match gives to every cricket fan. In fact, such is the craze that social media already gets flooded with jokes and memes before the two teams can even enter the stadium. However, there are times when certain inspiring stories trend more than those funny memes, which show us the real picture of this sport. Twitter During India's much-awaited match against Pakistan, what won the hearts of millions wasn't just India's victory or Yuzvendra Chahal tying Usman Khan's shoelaces on the field, there was another guy who won the internet with his beautiful gesture. While fans of both teams were cheering for their respective sides at the Dubai stadium, this man, donning the Pakistani flag, was seen singing the Indian national anthem. Facebook The video initially went viral on Instagram and was later shared by 'Voice of Ram' on Facebook. Honestly, there is nothing more beautiful than this gesture and he deserves all the love that is being showered on him. Clearly, cricket is truly the biggest religion in the world. As the video went viral, the guy who made the video came forward and disclosed his identity. "That's me guys. Thanks for sharing. Peace only. No nonsensical wars. Spread Love," said Adil Taj. If only more people could think like him.
  13. Last night the entire world was divided into parts of cheerleading squads. One which was supporting France and the other which was rooting for Croatia. However, seems like Big B was in another zone and while every world cup has its own anthem, the playlist over here was stuck on Shakira's 'Waka Waka' because he tweeted that finally Africa won the cup. T 2868 - Thats it then ... AFRICA won the World Cup 2018 !!! — Amitabh Bachchan (@SrBachchan) July 15, 2018 To give more perspective to the statement of a learned man, he shared a tweet by another user stating that how the French team was actually a majority of African origin players. Thats it then Africa won the World Cup 2018 https://t.co/jXd7nXuIaQ — Amitabh Bachchan (@SrBachchan) July 15, 2018 Now if we get into the technicality of this debate, then we can say that maybe he was right. However, twitterati refuses to agree on this and were actually amazed that how there was no credibility given to France here. Africa ko caps me likha hai kyu?? Wo caps me likhke Highlight karna jaruri tha kya? pic.twitter.com/TBuILvL9az — Rheað¥ð¥ (@iRheasingh) July 15, 2018 With all due respect to you, that was an uncalled for statement. May be their forefathers were African, but they all were FRENCH. Scientifically even our forefathers were AFRICAN as that's where Homo sapiens evolved 300,000 years ago. Thanks, A big fan of yours. — Kshitij Mohan (@MohanKshitij) July 15, 2018 It's wrong for you to be saying this. There are several other players born in France with roots in African countries who went back to play for their own country. They won as a team, lost as a team. They're French,not Africans. — Ameya Raje (@ameyaraje) July 15, 2018 Amidst this whole debate of nationalism and integrating immigrants in a nation, some users did laud his thought and statement, but by and large majority of his fans were not amused. They could only win because they consider France as their nation. Why r we dividing them ?? Let us keep the spirit of game and not these divisions ..... — anisha (@Anishakapoor90) July 15, 2018 Your messages in public domain clearly tending to a certain ideology. And hope we can know the truth some day. For now, it is unfortunate that instead of admiring a nation for wholly integrating refugees and migrants, you have made fun of them. T2868 is definitely in bad taste. — Rajesh Soundararajan (@rajeshsound) July 16, 2018 On that note, if you were also humming Shakira's anthem, here's some nostalgia alert for you: In Shakira's melodious voice, 'This time for Africa'! (oops, France we mean).

  19. Arguably one of the most popular and iconic Twenty20 tournaments in the world, star-studded Indian Premier League (IPL) is back to enthrall impatient cricket fans with its eleventh edition, raring to go from 7 April. While India's cash-rich league has often served as a great platform for young guns to prove their mettle, it has equally played a major role in quenching the thirst of its fans for slam-bang action. With the IPL kick-starting a new era on the back of a decade-long extravaganza, the eight franchises have already witnessed a major reshuffle ahead of the upcoming season. From Gautam Gambhir returning to Delhi Daredevils (DD) to MS Dhoni reclaiming his role with Chennai Super Kings (CSK), there is something different, but exciting, about the 2018 edition of the IPL. He knows how to win, he knows how to lead, he knows Dilli, he is Dilli.@GautamGambhir is back home and goosebumps are the order of the day! ð#GautamGambhir #Homecoming #DilDilli pic.twitter.com/831Vi8xSV1 — Delhi Daredevils (@DelhiDaredevils) 9 March 2018 Now, with just a few weeks left for the tournament to begin, the excitement amongst the fans has now escalated to an all-time high - courtesy the gripping anthem for this season. Taking to the social media, Star Sports - the official broadcaster of the tournament - released the new anthem to the sheer delight of cricket fans. The wait is finally over!

Bollywood has embraced its sounds, pop artists are staging a comeback with it, and we just can't help but groove to the bass of its ground-shaking drops. Thus, there was no surprise to see Rajeev V Bhalla, music director of the IPL anthem, toying with the sassy EDM tunes to entice cricket fans in the new promotional video, reflecting how far this T20 spectacle has come. Kick-starting the nerve-racking season this year will be none other than defending champions Mumbai Indians (MI) themselves. The Rohit Sharma-led brigade will welcome the Chennai Super Kings back into the IPL fold following their two-year suspension from the league. The two IPL giants will lock horns after a glittering opening ceremony in Mumbai on 7 April.

  21. Canadian flag. Photo: File OTTAWA: Canadians will soon be singing a new tune after parliament passed a bill to change the lyrics of the national anthem to make it gender neutral. Only one line in O Canada was amended, from ?True patriot love in all thy sons command? to ?True patriot love in all of us command". But it has caused quite a stir. ?It?s about two words,? Senator Frances Lankin told reporters. ?But it?s huge in terms of one of our major national symbols, the anthem we sing with pride about our country.? Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called the move ?another positive step towards gender equality,? while feminist author Margaret Atwood, who has been pressing for this since the 1980s, tweeted her thanks to lawmakers. Others decried the new lyrics and vowed to continue to sing the older version. ?Disappointed to hear the Liberals changed our national anthem. Somethings (sic) shouldn?t change,? said MP Bob Saroya in a Twitter message. The late MP Mauril Belanger had proposed the change to the English language version of the anthem. Belanger was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS, shortly after his party, under Trudeau, took power in 2015. The proposal was passed by the House two months before Belanger?s death in 2016, and late Wednesday the Senate added its support for the bill. Now it needs only the governor general?s signature to become law, which is a formality, but a date for that has not yet been set. ?It will receive royal ascent in due course,? Sabrina Atwal, spokesperson for government House leader Bardish Chagger, told AFP. The French version of O Canada, which has not been revised, was originally commissioned by Quebec?s lieutenant governor in 1880. The English version followed in 1906. In 1914 the phrase ?thou dost in us command? was changed to ?in all thy sons command?. A verse was added a decade later. There have been several attempts in recent decades to further amend the lyrics of the song ? which only officially became Canada?s anthem in 1980 ? but they all failed largely due to the entrenched opposition of Conservative lawmakers. Today the anthem is sung at the beginning of sporting events and in schools across Canada at the start of classes, often mixing both French and English versions.
  22. In 2016, the Supreme Court went ahead with a decision that was bound to create outrage across the country. It declared that it is mandatory for all cinema halls to play the national anthem before the screening of films. The practice would "instill a feeling within one, a sense of committed patriotism and nationalism," the bench had ruled. No points for guessing that the question that loomed in everyone's head was- Do we really need to sing the national anthem in a theatre to prove our patriotism? Despite the widespread outrage, it was being practiced and those who didn't follow it were criticized and some were even beaten up. It was also observed that people “cannot be forced to carry patriotism on their sleeves”. The Centre then decided to ask the Supreme Court to modify its earlier order. © BCCL And finally, the Supreme Court has now modified its order and declared that it is now optional for cinema halls to play the national anthem. It has also directed the government to frame the final guidelines on the order in six months. And of course, this decision was welcomed with open hearts by the Internet: 1. Watching a film now without a compulsory display of patriotism is very, very welcome. Await the order. #NationalAnthem — Karuna Nundy (@karunanundy) January 9, 2018 2. This Man Got No Chill. "Supreme Court modifies its order on #NationalAnthem, says it is not mandatory in cinema halls." Finally the logic prevails. Jisko zyada desh bhakti hai Wo movie se pehle ghar pe gaa ke aa sakta hai. — Rahul (@desicovfefe) January 9, 2018 3. Can't Agree More. Please stop with the rhetoric of, "soldiers standing at the border, why can't you stand at the theater". Patriotism is standing up for the #NationalAnthem on their own. Nationalism is forcing someone to stand up for the Anthem. Nationalism will take the country nowhere. — Priyadarshan Kempraj (@priyankemp) January 8, 2018 4. Rejoice! No more forced patriotism.#NationalAnthem — Shivani Shrivastava (@Reelontheheel) January 9, 2018 5. Wish This Was Understood Sooner. दà¥à¤° à¤à¤¯à¥ दà¥à¤°à¥à¤¸à¥à¤¤ à¤à¤¯à¥.

I might get digital tomatoes for saying this. I think #NationalAnthem should be played at less occasions, but when played should be given proper respect.

Democracy exists! #NationalAnthem https://t.co/P7jaLhXAMR — Gopichand kolluri (@Gopichand369) January 9, 2018 While we all love our nation, we do have to agree that forced patriotism won't do any good in the long run and this was definitely not the right way to judge how patriotic a citizen is.
  23. Singer Pink performs at the 2017 American Music Awards in Los Angeles, California, US, October 19, 2017. REUTERS/Mario Anzuoni/Files Pink will get the Super Bowl party started by singing the national anthem before the championship game in Minneapolis on February 4, the NFL said on Monday. The performance will mark the Grammy award-winning singer?s first appearance on the Super Bowl stage, which has been graced by artists such as Luke Bryan, Lady Gaga, and Idina Menzel in recent years. Performances of the national anthem have been a major talking point during the NFL season as players have used the occasion to take knees, sit or link arms during the song to protest about racial inequality and police brutality in the US. The protests have been criticized by the Trump Administration, which has chosen to interpret the demonstrations as offensive to the US military. Vice President Mike Pence walked out of an NFL game in Indianapolis earlier this season when players protested during the anthem. The NFL previously announced that singer Justin Timberlake would headline the halftime show. The NFL also announced on Monday that Alexandria Wailes will perform in American Sign Language both the national anthem and ?America The Beautiful.? The Super Bowl is the most-watched event on US television, drawing more than 100 million viewers.
