  1. Shah Rukh Khan is also known as King Khan, not only because he is a tremendously good actor and rules over the hearts of millions of film lovers, but also because he is a true gentleman. Fans love him and swear by his words of wisdom. They take his words to heart and often treat him as a mentor. © YouTube That should not come as a shock because SRK is a great orator with a capability of stirring people's hearts with mere words and leaving a great impact on their minds. SRK might have just used this superpower for a great cause and the result is heartwarming. Recently, as part of the Meer Foundation initiative, Shah Rukh met acid attack survivors before their corrective surgeries, however, that was not all. While interacting with these strong women (many of whom were also his fans), he also shared some personal insights on life and facing it head-on, that is absolutely inspiring! SRK told the women to stay strong and live with their heads held high. He further told them that as long as they believed that they wanted to make something of themselves in life, the rest will fall in place. © Twitter He also underlined the importance of working for ourselves and being independent and said, “It's important for each one of us to make sure that we work for ourselves. We should do our own work without depending on another individual. Even if it's a small job, we should be fending for ourselves. And at the end of the day, we must be independent.” © YouTube The video from this meeting has since been widely circulated on social media and it's like a breath of fresh air to see these wonderful women smiling and giggling post their interaction with SRK. © YouTube Perhaps he doesn't know it, but we are sure that through this interaction SRK has touched many lives, and given many other survivors hope for the future. Shah Rukh Khan started the Meer foundation in 2017 and it focuses on improving the lives of acid-attack survivors.
  2. Deepika Padukone has time and again proven herself by taking up challenging roles and doing justice to them on-screen. After 'Padmaavat', which the actor herself admits to be one of the most difficult films in her career, she is now set to greet us with another path-breaking movie on acid attack titled 'Chhapaak'. Deepika very recently shared the first look of the film on her Instagram account. View this post on Instagram A character that will stay with me forever...#Malti Shoot begins today!#Chhapaak Releasing-10th January, 2020. @meghnagulzar @foxstarhindi @vikrantmassey87 A post shared by Deepika Padukone (@deepikapadukone) on Mar 24, 2019 at 8:30pm PDT Deepika looks nothing like herself in the first look, and the make-up and prosthetics look pretty convincing in evoking the faces of numerous acid attack survivors we have seen on TV and otherwise, over the years. Here is everything you need to know about 'Chhapaak' at this point. View this post on Instagram Women's power ♥ï¸ Lovely picture with, Mom Meghna Ji & my love puhu ð¤ #stopsaleacid #womensday2019 #equality #empowerment @meghnagulzar @pihu_she A post shared by Laxmi Agarwal (@thelaxmiagarwal) on Mar 8, 2019 at 3:50am PST 1. 'Chhapaak' is being filmed under the directorial vision of Meghna Gulzar of 'Raazi' fame, and this is Deepika and Meghna's first collaboration together. 2. The plot of the movie is based on the real life story of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal who was attacked at the age of 15 by a man and his two friends because she refused to marry the former. Ever since, Laxmi champions the cause of campaigning for the survivors' rights. View this post on Instagram "Not every acid attack survivor is like Laxmi, who, despite physical pain, social shaming and ostracism, came out of the experience, stronger, even victorious. There are many who are yet to overcome the trauma. I will be meeting some of these girls in the coming weeks and be working closely with them. I believe everyone needs to take mental health seriously and I'll have a dialogue with them and their families on this." - #deepikapadukone #Chhapaak WE ARE SO PROUD OF YOU @deepikapadukone ððððð A post shared by Deepika South FC (@deepikasouthfc) on Mar 22, 2019 at 9:29pm PDT 3. The film stars Vikrant Massey as the lead opposite Deepika, and we wonder if he shall be seen as Deepika's nemesis in 'Chhapaak'. 4. Deepika's character in the film is called Malti, and the movie goes on floors today in New Delhi. 5. 'Chhapaak' is being produced by Fox Star Studios, KA Entertainment and Mriga Films, and it is set to release on January 10, 2020.
  3. On March 15, the prayers of the worshippers at a Christchurch mosque turned into screams, after a gunman mercilessly opened fire and killed nearly 50 people. This was, like Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said, "one of New Zealand's darkest days". Since then, the whole nation has come together as one, to mourn the loss of the people killed in the attack and wipe the tears of their family members. Reuters Post the attack, PM Jacinda Ardern has been standing in solidarity with the Muslim community and Ardern even said "We are one" in one of the interviews post the attack. Ardern is being hailed as a hero across the world for standing together with the victims and their families and for tightening gun laws in the country. Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building in Dubai, too honoured her by lighting up with a photo of Ardern in a hijab hugging a woman after the Christchurch shootings. Reuters UAE Vice President and Prime Minister His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum took to Twitter to thank PM Jacinda Ardern and wrote, "New Zealand today fell silent in honour of the mosque attacks' martyrs. Thank you PM @jacindaardern and New Zealand for your sincere empathy and support that has won the respect of 1.5 billion Muslims after the terrorist attack that shook the Muslim community around the world."

  4. I am sure you've heard stories of a phone physically saving someone's life. Yes, it's usually a Nokia phone, but this time it's said to be an iPhone which seems to have saved an Australian man's life. In an incident that took place in the city of Nimbin in New South Wales, Australia, a man managed to block a bow and arrow shot with his mobile phone. NSW Police confirmed that the 43-year old man managed to survive the lethal attack with only a deep cut on his chin. According to the Police's statement, it was about 9AM when the victim drove into a driveway and noticed a man armed with a bow and arrow. He pulled out his mobile phone to take a photograph of the armed man, at which point he got attacked with the arrow shot. It's alleged that the arrow pierced through the man's mobile phone causing it to hit him in the chin. Luckily, the man escaped the lethal attack with just a deep cut on his chin. Following the incident, officers from Richmond Police District were called, and the man who shot the arrow was arrested at the scene. He's been charged with “armed with intent to commit an indictable offence, assault occasioning actual bodily harm and malicious damage.” He was granted bail, but he's due to appear in court next month.
  5. It has been less than a month since the unfortunate terror attack backed by the terrorist group, Jaish-e-Mohammed, enraged the entire nation as it claimed the lives of more than 40 brave CRPF jawans in the most gruesome manner with their children orphaned and their wives widowed in an instant. The whole country has been in mourning and have been trying to show their love and respect for the brave soldiers and their families however they can. The Indian cricket team did their best to do the same last week when former Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni distributed camouflage caps with the symbol of Indian cricket at the centre, ahead of the third ODI against Australia in his hometown of Ranchi. The Men in Blue donned the unusual-looking caps the entire game in order to honour the martyrs of the infamous attack. #TeamIndia will be sporting camouflage caps today as mark of tribute to the loss of lives in Pulwama terror attack and the armed forces And to encourage countrymen to donate to the National Defence Fund for taking care of the education of the dependents of the martyrs #JaiHind pic.twitter.com/fvFxHG20vi — BCCI (@BCCI) March 8, 2019 "#TeamIndia will be sporting camouflage caps today as mark of tribute to the loss of lives in Pulwama terror attack and the armed forces. And to encourage countrymen to donate to the National Defence Fund for taking care of the education of the dependents of the martyrs #JaiHind," the Board of Cricket Control in India (BCCI) tweeted ahead of the match. However, the Pakistan Cricket Board strongly feels these actions taken by MSD and the BCCI are wrong and have led to a loss of credibility in the cricketing world. PCB chairman Ehsan Mani said he has "strongly taken up the matter with the ICC." "There's absolutely no misunderstanding in the ICC about our position," Mani said in a press conference last weekend in Karachi. "We believe that cricket and sports should not be used for politics and we have said this very clearly. Their [India] credibility in the cricketing world has gone down very badly." That's not all as the Pakistan Information ministry, held by Fawad Chaudhry, even urged the International Cricket Council to ban BCCI and the Men in Blue from international cricket for combining sports and politics. As a response to the bold statements by the PCB, ICC spokesperson Claire Furlong let The Associated Press know about their stand on the whole issue via email. "The BCCI sought permission from the ICC to wear the caps as part of a fundraising drive and in memory of fallen soldiers who have died, which was granted," she wrote. Now, we agree that sports and politics should be kept miles away from each other. Over the years there have been numerous incidents where politicising a game or an athletic meet has led to adverse results for the sporting world. But the BCCI's idea to pay homage to the nation's brave soldiers cannot be deemed as politically motivated. Athletes wearing camouflage caps is in no way trying to demean or insult the cricketers of our neighbours, nor were we trying to get some kind of upper hand in the international scenario against the PCB.
  6. Well, it looks like we are going back to the good old days when 'The Game' Triple H and 'The Animal' Batista used to bring up jam-packed WWE Arenas to their feet with brilliant storytelling and botch-less in-ring performances. As a part of 'Evolution' - a four-men superteam involving the best talents across different eras of the WWE like the 'Nature Boy' Ric Flair, Triple H, Batista and 'The Viper' Randy Orton - the four stars used to derive huge reactions from the WWE Universe on a weekly basis. Even after the team broke off, every member went on to save 'Hall of Fame' worthy careers. After a decade, Evolution was expected to reunite last week on RAW to celebrate Flair's 70th birthday. While Triple H, along with the entire WWE roster were present around the stage with a huge birthday cake inside the ring, the Jumbotron turned on and it was Batista assaulting Flair. “Hey, Hunter… Do I have your attention now?” barked Batista as he dragged the 70-year-old on the floor. According to several reports, Batista was scheduled to make an appearance on last night's episode of RAW but did not just because of the fact that he did not like Philadelphia. After Batista's video played on the jumbotron, Triple H cut a solo promo addressing what went down last week. After a small recap of how deep his friendship with Ric Flair was and how unhappy he was, not being able to celebrate the birthday that Ric Flair more than deserved, Hunter went on a killer rampage on how Dave Bautista had cried online for more than two years. Triple H spoke about how Batista quit on the WWE and the WWE Universe when he was unable to get a reaction out of the wrestling fans and how frustrating it was for him to see his wrestling career fall apart in front of his eyes. Offering Batista an open challenge, a very angry Triple H yelled: “Stand up to me, tell me what you want and I will give you everything that you want. You want my attention? Dave, you've got it,” before storming out of the ring. It is evident where all of this is headed. With less than a month left for the 35th anniversary of Wrestlemania, an epic matchup between two of the best talents of the business is shaping up. Probably a 'No Holds Barred', probably a 'Backstage Brawl', whatever it turns out to be, we are in for a wrestling treat!
  7. From coming to the rescue of a financially struggling acid attack survivor to starting the initiative 'Bharat Ke Veer' along with the Government of India, Akshay Kumar is a hero in real life too, who has never backed down from going that extra mile for the society, and the bravehearts and their families. © Instagram Now, Akshay Kumar has donated Rs. 15 lakh to Sundari Devi, wife of Jeet Ram Gurjar. Gurjar was one of the CRPF jawans martyred in the Pulwama terror attack on 14th February. CRPF (Central Reserve Police Force) DIG Jagdish Narayan Meena revealed the news of his donation. Jeet Ram Gurjar hailed from a village in Bharatpur and was the sole earning member in his family. His younger brother, Vikram Singh, thanked Kumar for his gesture at a time when they needed it the most, as they are financially very weak. He further mentioned that his parents along with Gurjar's wife and two daughters were also dependent on him. Reportedly, the amount was transferred under 'Bharat Ke Veer'. In this initiative, one can help the families financially, by donating either using the app or the website bharatkeveer.gov.in. Earlier, it was reported that Akshay has vowed to donate Rs. 5 crore to the families of Pulwama martyrs, via 'Bharat Ke Veer'. He urged his fans to also step forward and help, and wrote on social media that "Pulwama is something we cannot forget and will not forget." #Pulwama is something we cannot & will not forget.We're all angry & it's time to act. So act now,donate to the martyrs of Pulwama on https://t.co/5j0vxsSt7f There's no better way to pay homage to them & show your support.This is the only official site,pls don't fall prey to fakes pic.twitter.com/sYruUtzgKY — Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) February 16, 2019
  8. The pain that the Pulwama terror attack brought on for the entire nation less than two weeks ago on 14th February, left a gaping wound in our hearts, and more so in the lives of all the families who lost a son, husband or brother. The families of the martyred soldiers have just started to pick up the pieces of the life that they once knew, and people from across the country are helping them to make their lives a little easier and better in any way they can. the number of the martyr has gone up to 49 .. i am contributing for now 50 .. thats 2.5 cr — Amitabh Bachchan (@SrBachchan) February 16, 2019 From sports stars to Bollywood film actors and other prominent Indian personalities, everybody has stepped in to help the martyrs' families, not only in spirit but financially too. From Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar, Salman Khan to Shikhar Dhawan and Mohammed Shami, many others have come forward to provide financial help to the martyred soldiers' families. The most recent name to get added to that list is that of the melody queen of India- Lata Mangeshkar. The veteran singer took to Twitter post the Pulwama attack to express her grief: à¤à¤®à¥à¤®à¥-à¤à¤¶à¥à¤®à¥à¤° à¤à¥ पà¥à¤²à¤µà¤¾à¤®à¤¾ मà¥à¤ हà¥à¤ à¤à¤¤à¤à¤à¥ हमलॠà¤à¥ मà¥à¤ à¤à¤¡à¤¼à¥ निà¤à¤¦à¤¾ à¤à¤°à¤¤à¥ हà¥à¤. à¤à¤¸ हमलॠमà¥à¤ à¤à¥ हमारॠवà¥à¤° à¤à¤µà¤¾à¤¨ शहà¥à¤¦ हà¥à¤ हॠà¤à¤¨à¤à¥ मà¥à¤ शà¥à¤°à¤¦à¥à¤§à¤¾à¤à¤à¤²à¥ à¤à¤°à¥à¤ªà¤¿à¤¤ à¤à¤°à¤¤à¥ हà¥à¤. à¤à¤¨ सभॠवà¥à¤°à¥à¤ à¤à¥ परिवारà¥à¤ à¤à¥ दà¥à¤à¤ मà¥à¤ मà¥à¤ शामिल हà¥à¤. — Lata Mangeshkar (@mangeshkarlata) February 15, 2019 She recently announced that she will be donating Rupees 1 crore for the welfare of the Indian soldiers. The amount shall be delivered to the Indian Army on 24th April on the occasion of Master Dinanath Mangeshkar's death anniversary. That is not all, even the Dinanath Mangeshkar Pratisthan shall be donating 5 lakh rupees to the Indian Army for the welfare of the soldiers who selflessly serve our nation. Speaking to the Maharashtra Times regarding the same, the singer shared that, "many people in the industry always help soldiers who sacrifice their lives for the nation. Even now, people from the industry are helping out. We have also announced something from our end." © Twitter The entire nation is aware of the love and respect Lata Mangeshkar holds for our armed forces. Once, on the occasion of her birthday, she had urged her fans and well-wishers to refrain from spending money on her gifts, and spend that money on our jawans instead.
  9. What started out as a democratic debate on live TV for Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology (KIIT) professor Madhumita Ray, soon turned into a war of words and might, when she went on national television to say that India should opt for peace and not war when it comes to dealing with Pakistan, post the deadly Pulwama terror attack. Following the debate on Kanak News on 18th February, which also featured Colonel Purna Chandra Patnaik (retd.) of the Indian Army, where she urged that India shouldn't resort to war against Pakistan post the Pulwama attack, the Development Theory & Practice and Sociology professor at KIIT was asked to hand in her resignation. (c) KIIT/LinkedIN Social media erupted after the programme was aired and under the pressure of public scrutiny and wrath, the KIIT management asked Madhumita to quit. “On February 20, I was ordered by the management to resign and leave the university within 24 hours. I did so on the next day.” Madhumita told Odisha Sun Times. However, KIIT has said that public complaints led to this action against Madhumita. However, regardless of what her statement brings her way, Madhumita has stood by her words and beliefs. She told Odisha Sun Times, “I feel what I said is right and stand by my words. War is not at all a solution.” We believe that Madhumita's comment should have been received with graciousness and a liberal approach, expected of a democratic nation where every individual is allowed to keep their point and express their personal opinions, just like how others who disagree with a said opinion are allowed to express their dissent. I know Madhumita Ray too, & I hope better sense prevails in Kalinga Institute. https://t.co/QEeVbbA86E — arkajasingh (@arkajasingh) February 26, 2019 At a time when hate and intolerance come easy, we need to look for ways that ensure that innocent lives are not treated as collateral damage, when it comes to dealing with matters of border security and geographies, as far as possible. But to take away someone's means of livelihood for sharing their opinion, and one that is rooted in experience and concern, is unjust and unfortunate. Considering that Madhumita wasn't even given a notice period goes on to show that KIIT has not just been unethical, but also unprofessional in handling the matter.
  10. Twelve days after the deadly Pulwama terror attack shook the nation and killed over 40 CRPF jawans, the IAF (Indian Air Force) today breached the LoC (Line of Control) and struck JeM (Jaish-e-Mohammed) terror camps in Balakot. This is the first time in almost two decades that IAF's jets crossed the border and fired in aggression. The fighter jets ambushed the terror camps with 1,000 kg laser-guided bombs. The strike was carried out around 3:30 AM by 12 Mirage 2000 fighter jets. IAF operates multiple fighter jets like the Sukhoi 30MKI, MiG 29UPG, SEPECAT Jaguar, and HAL Tejas. But, the Mirage 2000 has been a trusted jet since the 1999 Kargil Conflict, the last time it fired weapons in aggression. © MensXP / Shivam Vahia The Mirage 2000 is built by French company Dassault Aviation - the makers of the controversial Rafale jets. The IAF calls the jet "Vajra", meaning thunderbolt for its precision aiming and intercepting abilities. The Jets were first commissioned in 1985 and it was in response to Pakistan Air Force's acquisition of the American F-16 fighter. © WikiMedia Initially, 36 single-seater aircraft and four twin-seater were ordered, but after its remarkably successful performance in Kargil, the government ordered 10 more. The jet is technically classified as a multi-role aircraft, meaning it can carry out air-to-ground bombings, air-to-air superiority combat, interception, as well as reconnaissance. © Wikimedia / SRA Greg L. Davis Even though it seems like an old aircraft on paper, India has upgraded the jet's avionics to the latest standard (Mirage 2000I) and it is classified as a fourth generation fighter. Powering the fighter is a single SNECMA M53 turbofan that generates up to 95kN of thrust in afterburner stage. The engine has a single shaft modular design which helps in reducing the weight and in turn increases manoeuvrability. It can fly at a maximum speed of Mach 2.2 or 2,330kmph. © Safran It has a built-in DEFA 554 autocannon and can fire up to 1,800 rounds per minute. Five hardpoints (location where missiles and bombs are attached) are located on the fuselage and two on each wing. For today's strike, GBU-12 Laser Guided bombs were used and R.550 missile was loaded to counter any possible threat from Pakistan's air force. © WikiMedia / SSgt. Glenn B. Lindsey This is the same jet that was also landed on Yamuna Expressway near Mathura in 2015. For today's attack, reports suggest that Sukhoi 30MKI were also kept on standby to assist the Mirage 2000 in case of retaliation from Pakistan Air Force. At the same time, the attack was also backed by an EMB-145 AEW&CS "Netra" aircraft from Agra to look out for aerial targets and provide better radar coverage.
  11. Post the deadly Pulwama terror attack, the entire country is left in a state of horror and shock. Over 40 CRPF personnel lost their lives and we're still trying to put the pieces together, all across the country, not sure if they'll fit anymore. But an international humanitarian organisation by the name of 'Khalsa Aid' and some local Gurudwaras and individual Sikhs helped the Kashmiri population who were trying to escape vigilante mob attacks all across the country and we know for sure there is still some faith left in humanity. © Twitter The organisation gave protection, food and shelter to many stranded Kashmiris and helped them reach back safe to their homes in Kashmir. The violence erupted all over North India where many Kahsmiri students were being attacked in retaliation to the attack on the 14th of February and with the help of Khalsa Aid, they've all made it back home safe. © Twitter As a mark of gratitude and in order to thank the Sikh communities, the Kashmiris have now expressed their love for the Sikhs for helping them out in times of need and have offered free services to the Sikhs, namely medical treatments and education and free snow bike rides in Gulmarg. © Twitter So much so, a cartoon caricatured by a Kashmiri cartoonist by the name of Suhail Naqshbandi has gone viral on social media. The sketch depicts a Sikh offering a helping hand to a drowning Kashmiri, narrating the benevolent services and gratitude towards the brotherhood. Sardar means a leader and they lead by example. Hats off to them for being everywhere to help the humanity. @Khalsa_Aid #kashmirisindistress #kashmir pic.twitter.com/H6kUfIVlzk — Suhail Naqshbandi (@hailsuhail) 20 February 2019 The cartoonist tweeted: “Sardar means a leader and they lead by example. Hats off for being everywhere to help.” The post went viral on Twitter and was re-tweeted many times. The cartoon was also shared by former Jammu & Kashmir chief ministers Mehbooba Mufti and Omar Abdullah. I salute our Sikh brethren who came to the aid of young Kashmiris all over the country. Admire their exemplary spirit to serve with utmost dignity & fortitude. https://t.co/rOGN4mS2PA — Mehbooba Mufti (@MehboobaMufti) 20 February 2019 This cartoon is very apt.

A special thanks to @capt_amarinder Sahib for his statesmanship in ensuring security & safety for Kashmiris. https://t.co/QRPsTf1JoI — Omar Abdullah (@OmarAbdullah) 20 February 2019 Although, the Khalsa Aid CEO Ravinder Singh corrected the former CM from the National Conference for giving credit to the Punjab CM Captain Amarinder Singh and over a tweet told him the effort was made by the Gurudwaras. With due respect the initiative was taken by the GURDWARAS in Chandigarh and then the @khalsaaid_india team funded & coordinated the 20 buses for the students.

  12. The Pulwama attack has shaken the country, and pulled a few raw strings that should not have been meddled with. Kashmir is a sensitive issue for the Indian subcontinent, merely because we consider it a part of us and one of our own. While some notorious elements continuously try to turn the youth of the valley against their own brethren, and often succeed in brainwashing them into believing otherwise, the mutual sense of belonging-ness and unity continues to blow strong in the valleys. © Facebook In a show of solidarity and love for the nation, its people and the armed forces, over 2,500 young men from Jammu & Kashmir turned up for army recruitment drive in Baramulla. An official spoke to ANI and said that, thousands of young Kashmiri boys turned up to serve their nation, for recruitment for 111 vacant posts in the Indian Army. Apart from earning a livelihood and protecting their families, these hopeful young men also told ANI that getting hired would also give them the opportunities to share their side of the story with the rest of the country, raise awareness and sensitise fellow Indians about the crisis in the Kashmir valley. © ANI "We cannot go outside Kashmir. This is a great opportunity for us. We wish that more vacancies are offered to us. If Kashmiri personnel will be deployed in the sensitive areas then they can talk to the people and deal with the ongoing crisis", an aspiring candidate was quoted as saying to ANI. Jammu & Kashmir: Several Kashmiri youth take part in an army recruitment drive for 111 vacancies in Baramulla. Bilal Ahmad, army aspirant says, "We will get the chance to sustain our families and serve our nation, what else can one want?" pic.twitter.com/bmtMdYfvsk — ANI (@ANI) February 19, 2019 It must also be told that the rate of unemployment in the area is high with over 26% of youngsters between the age of 18-29 being unemployed. Economic Survey 2017 stated "unsupportive administrative and regulatory framework and lack of transparency" as the main reason behind this state of unemployment.
  13. On 14th February, when the world was busy celebrating love, India and its citizens were pushed into a state of mourning. A sinister plan by Jaish-e-Muhammad (JeM) saw a 20-year-old suicide bomber ramming his explosive-laden SUV into a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) convoy that robbed India of more than 40 brave soldiers and injured others. Since then, the ghastly terror strike has become the topic of great discussion in the country that recently witnessed the tearful last rites of the Pulwama attack martyrs. While many have suggested adequate action and revenge from the Indian government, others have joined hands to aid the grieving families of the slained soldiers. © AP There is anger and a lot of frustration amongst the Indian citizens. And, the mindset of Indian boxers was no different when they travelled to Sofia in Bulgaria for the Strandja Memorial Boxing Tournament. Their nation was grieving and the boxers didn't know any other way to cheer the citizens, but make India proud through medal-winning performances. India finished the tournament with seven medals - three gold, a silver and three bronze medals - in Sofia. Amongst the medal winners, Nikhat Zareen, Meena Kumari Devi and Amit Pangal bagged top honours at one of Europe's oldest boxing tournaments. While Nikhat dedicated her gold medal (in women's 51kg category) to the CRPF martyrs, Amit got emotional as he honoured the Indian bravehearts with a spectacular performance. © Twitter Amit, a Naib Subedar in the Indian Army, said that the Pulwama attack was on his mind through the tournament. "It hurt a little bit more because I belong to the armed forces. I was desperate for a medal because I wanted to dedicate it to the heroes who lost their lives in Pulwama," Amit was quoted as saying by TOI. "This was my mindset the moment I got to know of the attack after landing here. I was in touch with my family members during the tournament and they also told me that I had to win a medal in honour of the Pulwama martyrs. I was doubly motivated by this thought," the Rohtak-born boxer added. I am very happy to win Goldð¥for India at the Strandja Cup. I dedicate this medal to the families of the CRPF jawans who lost their lives in the Pulwama attackð • •#proudindian #champion #hardworkalwayspaysoff #godisgreat #boxing #womenboxing pic.twitter.com/1L99ZWWuOp — Nikhat Zareen (@nikhat_zareen) February 19, 2019 On the other hand, Nikhat, too, shared a heartfelt message on the social media following her gold-medal finish. "I am very happy to win Gold for India at the Strandja Cup. I dedicate this medal to the families of the CRPF jawans who lost their lives in the Pulwama attack," the former junior world champion tweeted.
  14. It has been six days since one of the deadliest terrorist attacks hit the country and took the lives of over 40 CRPF jawans. The nation is still mourning all the lives that were lost in Pulwama last week, and everyone is doing what they can to help the bereaved families of the martyred jawans. Relations between India and Pakistan have always been turbulent as we all know, but now it looks like this attack was the last straw for a lot of people as they want revenge from Pakistan after Jaish-e-Mohammed claimed responsibility for the attack. With so many people calling for an all-out war, Pakistani journalist Sehyr Mirza launched an #AntiHateChallenge to show how people from Pakistan are condemning the attack as well. Sharing pictures of several women holding up signs that say “I am a Pakistani and I condemn Pulwama terrorist attacks,” followed by the hashtags #AntiHateChallenge and #NoToWar, they're trying to send out a message for peace. Fighting for peace between the two countries and urging everyone to condemn the attacks as well, Sehyr also wrote in the post, “We're deeply disturbed over the tragic terror attack that claimed innocent lives in Kashmir. In such testing times, we need more sane voices to speak out against war and terrorism. We have initiated this #AntiHateChallenge to not only condemn the attack but also express solidarity with our Indian friends. Requesting Pakistani fellows, who share our feelings to please, join in ” A lot of Indians also showed support in the comments and left messages of peace.
  15. The Pulwama terror attack has left the entire nation in a state of horror and shock. Over 40 CRPF personnel lost their lives in the terrorist attack and a state of grave remorse and grief has struck everyone. © Twitter In the aftermath of the Pulwama attacks, a lot of Kashmiri students across the country have been under threat of verbal and physical violence and even though communal hatred is not something that is preached in a democracy, it is sad to know and witness that something like this can still fall upon us. As a result, many Kashmiri students are trying to run back home but it is not possible to be dislocated for something they are not even responsible for, right? In North India, Delhi and Dehradun have reported a big number of retaliation attacks on Kashmiri students. Khalsa Aid organisation has come forward to offer help to all distressed students and is even helping students go back home. In the midst of angst & hatred @Khalsa_Aid stands out for love & humanity This pic showing transportation of Kashmiri students by Khalsa Aid volunteers from Dehradun & Chandigarh @BDUTT @Nidhi @ReallySwara#Pulwama #PulwamaAttack #Kashmiri #KashmirTerrorAttack pic.twitter.com/YBihZ90Dh5 — Angad Singh (@Angad_Pb) February 19, 2019 We are all kashmiris thanks to @Khalsa_Aid proud on you #seikhcommunity help our students provide shelters foods..

  16. The official websites of Pakistan's Foreign Ministry and the Army were hacked on Saturday night, making them inaccessible for users outside the country. Later, several other websites were hacked and defaced. The hackers left behind a message stating "We will never forget #14/02/2019". © Reuters According to the report in Pakistan's Dawn, the government websites were working fine within the country, but users from other countries were unable to access them. Ministry spokesperson Muhammad Faisal said, "The website is functioning without any issues in Pakistan. However, visitors to the website from Holland, Australia, Britain, and Saudi Arabia are facing difficulty opening it." © Reuters Several media reports say a list of the hacked websites is being circulated on WhatsApp and other social media platforms claiming that "Pakistan has faced it's worst cyber attack in history, in last 72 hours". A lot of these websites have been brought back to normal now. "The IT team is currently occupied in thwarting the hackers onslaught," Faisal added. The list of Pakistani websites hacked include: https://sindhforests.gov.pk/op.html https://mail.sindhforests.gov.pk/op.html https://pkha.gov.pk/op.html https://ebidding.pkha.gov.pk/op.html https://mail.pkha.gov.pk/op.html http://kda.gkp.pk/op.html http://blog.kda.gkp.pk/op.html http://mail.kda.gkp.pk/op.html https://kpsports.gov.pk/op.html https://mail.kpsports.gov.pk/op.html http://seismic.pmd.gov.pk/op.html http://namc.pmd.gov.pk/op.html http://rmcpunjab.pmd.gov.pk/FlightsChartFolder/op.html http://ffd.pmd.gov.pk/modis/op.html https://badin.opf.edu.pk/14-02-2019.php http://radar.pmd.gov.pk/islamabad/op.html Read more at: http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/articleshow/68042727.cms?utm_source=contentofinterest&utm_medium=text&utm_campaign=cppst Pakistan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs website was accessible in India, but an attempt to open the Pakistan Army website showed the following message: "The owner of this website has banned the country or region your IP address is in (IN) from accessing this website." © BCCL Pakistan believes the hackers are of Indian origin because defaced websites referred to the recent Pulwama attack. These cyber attacks by Indian ethical hackers come after over 40 CRPF personnel were killed on 14th February 2019 in one of the deadliest terror attacks in Jammu and Kashmir. Previously, fingers were pointed to India-based hackers when the official website of PPP was found defaced in June 2017. © BCCL Jaish-e-Mohammad claimed responsibility for the attack, and the group is known to be shielded by the Pakistani administration. The Indian government has slammed Pakistan over its terror links, but the neighbouring country has denied charges. Over 50 countries have condemned the barbaric attack and expressed support to India in its fight against terrorism. Immediately after the attack, India withdrew the Most Favoured Nation (MFN) status, which was accorded to Pakistan in 1996.
  17. The ghastly suicide terror attack that resulted in the loss of lives of brave Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel continues to be condemned across the globe. While many have come up to aid the families of the martyrs, others have called for an immediate to isolate Pakistan for their alleged role in the Pulwama terror attack. The sports fraternity, too, has joined hands to do their bit in one of the darkest hours. While Virat Kohli was seen postponing the 'Indian Sports Honours' to show solidarity for the jawans, Virender Sehwag was seen offering educational support to the children of the slain soldiers. While Pakistan continues to face backlash following the terror strike, their decorated T20 tournament - Pakistan Super League (PSL) - is now in danger after losing its prime broadcaster. Are you ready for #KhelDeewanoKa? â³ pic.twitter.com/ZL8bLu4bAG — PakistanSuperLeague (@thePSLt20) February 14, 2019 IMG Reliance has pulled out from broadcasting the fourth edition of the PSL in protest against the Pulwama terrorist attack. The PSL 2019 had already become the butt of all jokes after the headliner Pitbull refused, at the last minute, to perform at the opening ceremony, leaving the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) red-faced. And, the latest development has further marred the league. "Due to unfortunate events a couple of days back which resulted in the death of Indian soldiers, IMG Reliance is pulling out with immediate effect, from offering broadcast production services for PSL. The incident that occurred is deeply regrettable," stated a mail addressed to Sohaib Sheikh and Kamil Khan of the PCB, the content of which is in possession of PTI. Being the lone producers of the event, IMG Reliance's pull-out means that the PSL 2019 will go off the air unless the PCB brings in alternate production services, an official told TOI. PCB statement on production of #HBLPSL 2019 https://t.co/Pc7kV5P4rW — PCB Official (@TheRealPCB) February 17, 2019 In response, the PCB also issued a statement wherein it expressed disappointment at IMG Reliance's move, claiming that "sports and politics should be kept separate". “We have been informed by IMG Reliance that they will be unable to partner with us for the remaining HBL PSL 2019 and PCB has reserved all its rights. The PCB always had a contingency plan in place, and we are confident we will be in a position to announce the new partner on Monday after the completion of the formalities,” PCB's Managing Director Wasim Khan said. “The PCB has also noted the recent turn of events and expresses its extreme disappointment as we have always believed and emphasised that sports and politics should be kept separate. History tells us that sports, particularly cricket, have always played a key role in building bridges between people and countries," he added. Voicing PCB's dissent at the covering of Pakistan PM Imran Khan's portrait at the Cricket Club of India (CCI), Wasim said: “Unfortunately, denying India cricket fans the right to follow HBL PSL by blocking all digital coverage as well as covering or removing portrait of former Pakistan cricket captain and Prime Minister Imran Khan and other legendary cricketers from one of the most historic cricket clubs and venues are highly regrettable actions. The PCB intends to take up these incidents with the BCCI and the ICC at the upcoming ICC committee meeting in Dubai later this month”.

The six-team franchise-based tournament is currently being held in Dubai and Sharjah before it moves to Pakistan for the final eight games, including the all-important final in Karachi.
  18. The heinous suicide terror attack on the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) convoy might have sent the entire nation into a state of mourning, but, at the same time, it has united India and its citizens against the common evil of terrorism. As the country grieves and mourns the loss of brave CRPF personnel, the civilians have come forward to ensure their martyrdom doesn't go in vain. From politicians, celebrities to sports icons; everyone is now coming together to do their bit in aiding the families of the CRPF personnel who lost their lives in the ghastly Pulwama terror attack. While Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan has announced a donation of Rs 5 lakh each to the families of CRPF martyrs, boxer Vijender Singh donated his one month's salary for them.

The death toll rose to 49 on 15th February as several injured succumbed.
  19. On 14th February, while the entire world was celebrating love in the wake of Valentine's Day, India was taken over by a state of mourning as its citizens bemoaned the loss of 40 CRPF paramilitary troopers who laid down their lives for the country in what is being termed as the deadliest terrorist strike in three decades in Jammu and Kashmir. A 20-year-old suicide bomber, Adil Ahmad Dar, from the notorious terror group Jaish-e-Muhammad (JeM) rammed his explosive-laden SUV into the CRPF convoy at Awantipora town in the Pulwama district. With about 80kg of explosives suspected to have been used, the blast blew one of the buses carrying CRPF personnel to smithereens, killing 40 soldiers and injuring others. AP The ghastly attack has, since, been condemned by politicians, celebrities and other bigwigs alike. There were also heartfelt messages posted on the social media from the sports icons of the country. Amid all the messages, Virat Kohli, too, voiced his displeasure at the cowardly attack and mourned the loss of Indian bravehearts. To further show his respect to the CRPF personnel martyred in Pulwama, the Indian cricket captain also postponed the RP-SG 'Indian Sports Honours' which was to take place on 16th February. An initiative of the 'Virat Kohli Foundation' and Sanjiv Goenka's 'RP-SG Group', the 'Indian Sports Honours' is an annual awards ceremony that celebrates the excellence of sportspersons in the country.

Sanjiv Goenka and @imVkohli are deeply pained at the recent unfortunate event in Pulwama and express their solidarity to the families of the Martyrs.

Every partner and all the sports stars and delegates associated with this award have been informed and communicated with, stating that hosting an event was unacceptable at this moment when India is mourning the death of its jawans," the statement further added.

  20. Every time the Indian borders or the safety of its citizens are threatened, it is the men in green who stand in the way of trouble. Holding the fort with all their might and even putting their lives on the line to get it done. Yet there's no denying that their bravado and selflessness also makes them easy targets and puts them in harm's way, every time our foes wish to make a point (however unnecessary and futile).

Yesterday JeM terrorists targeted a CRPF procession in Jammu to Srinagar which comprised of over 70 vehicles and 2,547 personnel. The attack took away the life of 44 jawans and has left the country seething with anger and grief. © Twitter Targeting unsuspecting soldiers and attacking them when their defences are down is the biggest proof of cowardice that there is. Yet, even in death the jawans and their families continue to prove that they are the country's biggest pride. Even through their ultimate misery and loss, the families of the martyred jawans continue to take pride in the sacrifice their sons, husbands and brothers made for their motherland. However, it the need of the hour is to stand with the families of the martyred and share in the pain in grief. And since acknowledgement is the simplest way to start, let's begin with that.

  21. Yesterday, on February 14, the nation was painted red, not in the colour of love but with blood as nearly 40 CRPF (Central Reserve Police Force) personnel were martyred in one of the worst terrorist attacks ever in the state of Jammu & Kashmir. AP When half the nation was celebrating the day of love with their partners, there were many families who were mourning the death of their loved ones. Cheers of laughter and joy soon turned into tears and cries of the families of jawans, who were mercilessly attacked when they were travelling in a CRPF bus that was blown up using explosives. Reportedly, a suicide bomber named Adil Ahmad Dar alias 'Waqas Commando' crashed his SUV, laden with more than 350kgs of explosives, into the bus that was part of a 70-vehicle convoy on its way to Pulwama. Pakistan-based terrorist organisation Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) claimed responsibility for this terror attack. AP The attack has left the families devastated and the nation in shock. From prominent personalities to commoners, everyone is filled with rage and are now voicing their anger on social media. From Akshay Kumar, Priyanka Chopra, Abhishek Bachchan, 'Uri' actor Vicky Kaushal to Taapsee Pannu, Alia Bhatt and more, celebrities are standing strong with the families of martyred jawans as this cowardly and despicable act can't be forgotten easily. Numb beyond belief at the dastardly terror attack on #CRPF soldiers in #Pulwama. May God give peace to their souls, and strength to their grieving families. Wishing the injured a speedy recovery.

The entire nation stands shoulder to shoulder with the families of the brave martyrs. May the injured recover quickly. — Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) February 14, 2019
  22. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those who have been adversely affected by the 14th February 2019 terror attack on the CRPF bus in the Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir. The loss of over 40 of India's finest and bravest soldiers in what is considered to be the biggest terror attack since Uri has left the Indian public in sorrow, sympathetic and irate. Amidst such times of chaos and upheavals, one must show as much support to the victims as they can. The idea of promoting yourself or your team should probably be the last thought in your head right now and the people seemed to feel the same way when they set the Indian cricket captain, Virat Kohli, straight. While the world was mourning on the huge tragedy that took place on Valentine's Day, Virat Kohli decided to put out a couple of tweets asking his fans (essentially the entire nation), to vote for the Indian sports honours for the best cricket club and the best fan club of the year. While celebrities from all over the country including Priyanka Chopra came out to empathise with the families of the martyred jawans and the CRPF soldiers that were injured in the blast, Kohli's tweet felt ignorant, unsympathetic and really just out of place. Absolutely shocked by the attack in #Pulwama...Hate is NEVER the answer!!! Strength to the families of the martyred jawans and the CRPF soldiers injured in the attack. — PRIYANKA (@priyankachopra) February 14, 2019 My deepest thoughts and prayers are with the victims of the Pulwama attacks and their families. — Karan Johar (@karanjohar) February 14, 2019 There's no doubt that if the situation was even remotely different from what it is right now, Kohli's Twitter fans, all of 28.2 million, would have hopped onto the bandwagon to vote for their favourite cricket club and fan club in a instant as their leader had asked of them. But in the wake of something as devastating as the Jaish-e-Mohammed attack on J&K, the followers had to hold the torch for the Indian skipper to see things clearly, as they let Kohli know all about their displeasure with his tweets: This is what the cricketer had uploaded but later removed after getting a lot of flak: And here's how his agitated fans responded: Virat aapke team sea jo bhi aapka Social Media Account handle karta hai Wo Bahut Bada Pagal hai — Raja â¤ï¸ (@RaghurajPrSingh) February 14, 2019 Promotional tweet regarding sports honor awards voting. Wrong timing. Andharu dobbaru. Tweet delete cheaadu. — Spidey (@MrStarksPeter) February 14, 2019 please dont post such message till whole country shocked by pulwama attack — shailaishgarg (@shailaishgarg) February 14, 2019 Look at the mood of the nation. Don't you have brains#Pulwama — Shekhar Bhatt (@iShekharBhatt) February 14, 2019 Any word for sacrifice of soldiers in #Kashmir ? U don't deserve Indian Cap...#PulwamaTerrorAttack #Pulwama — SilenceSpeaks (@JayShreeRadhey) February 14, 2019 Such insensitivity in the captain of Indian Cricket Team Whole country is tweeting about #Pulwama and he is busy in his business — Shivam Agrahari DSPð®ð³ (@DSP_Shivam) February 14, 2019 Virat Kohli has been a phenomenal cricketer, his clean sweep at the ICC awards this year dictates this narrative of his loud and clear. He has done some exceptional work to bring the Men in Blue to the stage where they are right now. However, these tweets are just the best examples of 'wrong time, wrong place'.
  23. We are living in very interesting times where literally anything and everything is capable of stopping a game or a match. From a naked dude streaking across the field to elements in nature, no one can expect where the next obstacle in a match can come from. A few days ago, the 2nd ODI between India and New Zealand went on a halt because of sun outrage. And yesterday, another old mate came back onto the field to halt yet another match, none other than our beloved bees. © PTI Over the years we have seen many 'bee attacks', the most memorable one was witnessed in South Africa two years ago, when the host were playing against Sri Lanka. Something similar happened yesterday during the fourth one day match between India A and England Lions in Trivandrum, where the play came to a standstill for 15 minutes when a swarm of bees attacked the spectators at the stadium. An unexpected and painful turn of events took place at the Green Field International Stadium, as the match was just in its 28th over when the bees began to charge at the audience and left a lot of spectators in the stadium injured. All of this was captured in a video which went viral after the incident. Fortunately, none of the players at the stadium were seriously injured at the scene, as the bees did not enter the field. But the India A coach, Rahul Dravid, who was around the stadium at that time, had to run for his safety. A few spectators were taken to the hospital immediately because of the bee attack and the crowd at the stadium was shifted from the west side of the stadium to the east. The Chief Operating Officer of Sports Facilities Ltd told The Indian Express: "It was an unfortunate incident. We had ensured that the gallery where the spectators who sit for watching the match was cleaned ahead of the match. But it were some spectators who went upstairs where they were not supposed to go in the normal circumstances and stirred the hive unknowingly or mischievously." Though India won comfortably by 6 wickets, in which the recently named ICC Emerging player of the year, Rishabh Pant scored a blistering knock of 73 of 76 balls, and with Shardul Thakur assisting in the bowling department, team India safely secured the fourth straight win in the series.
  24. The remarkable success of movies like 'Raazi', 'Gold' and 'Sanju', has had Bollywood riding on the wave of biopics and movies based on real life events. Films like 'Uri', 'Manikarnika' and 'Kesari' have only underlined the recent success of this trend further. © junglee pictures The latest addition to this list is director Meghna Gulzar's upcoming venture on acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal, featuring superstar Deepika Padukone. After giving us a heart-warming watch in 'Raazi', Gulzar is now set to make a biopic on acid attack survivor and activist, Laxmi, who was attacked at the age of 15, and has since been working for the welfare of acid attack survivors. © wikimedia Reportedly, Deepika Padukone will not only play the lead role, but will also wear the slip into the producer's shoes for the movie. Deepika told Mumbai Mirror, "When I heard this story, I was deeply moved as it's not just one of violence but of strength and courage, hope and victory. It made such an impact on me, that personally and creatively, I needed to go beyond and so the decision to turn producer." © instagram Gulzar, who's also made films like 'Talwar,'' said "Using Laxmi's story as a lens, we are attempting to explore these aspects and the consequences of acid-related violence in our society. This is what makes this must-told story relevant. Awareness is the first step towards change." On casting the 'Padmavat' actress, she said "I was instinctively convinced that Deepika would do justice to the character and the story. Also, her physicality matched with what I'd imagined for Laxmi's character. I'm grateful and encouraged that she was so spontaneous in her decision to do the film." © wikimedia Laxmi was recently in news for her financial struggles in the recent past. Upon learning of her misfortunes, Akshay Kumar even transferred Rs 5 lakh into her account so that she can find her feet. Laxmi's story is one of the most inspiring accounts of courage and bravery. We look forward to Deepika doing justice to it on the big screen.
  25. On days when Akshay Kumar is not busy smashing box office records with his exceptional movies, the actor is busy doing his bit for the welfare of the society and people. Recently, Akshay came to the rescue of acid attack survivor and activist Laxmi Agarwal, who has been struggling financially for a year now. After learning that Laxmi is facing a difficulty in making ends meet, Akshay transferred Rs. 5 lakh into her account so that she can find a job with dignity. © Instagram According to a report in Hindustan Times, he said, "My contribution is a very small gesture. I am embarrassed to even mention it. The idea is that Laxmi should be able to search for a job with dignity, without having to worry about paying house rent or stressing about not being able to provide a nutritious meal to her baby." © wikimedia He further added, "I wish people realise that when a person is in need of livelihood, medals, awards and certificates don't pay the bills. It's important to support through practical means." We wish more people can think like Akshay." According to the report in HT, Laxmi said that despite receiving numerous awards, walking the ramp and giving motivational talks, she did not have any money to even meet her basic needs. Laxmi was unemployed for a year, but after people got to know about her story, she has been flooded with job offers and financial aid too is pouring in from everywhere. © wikimedia Akshay Kumar is one of those few actors who actually takes action, instead of just posting about it on social media. Last year, Akshay helped raise Rs. 6.5 crores at the event for the families of the martyred soldiers. He also came up with the initiative called 'Bharat Ke Veer' along with the Home Ministry. Be it creating awareness about social issues through his movies or standing with the families of jawans, Akshay Kumar has never hesitated in helping people and probably that's the reason why people love him so much.
