  1. Today marks the passing of a year since 40 Indian jawans lost their lives in the deadly Pulwama terror attack and the entire country is paying homage to the fallen heroes in their own way. One man, in particular, came up with a powerful way that he could honour all the martyrs - by making a special memorial for them. Umesh Gopinath Jadhav, a Bengaluru-based musician, travelled throughout the country to meet the families of the martyrs and collect soil from outside of their houses. © ANI He spent a good portion of 2019 travelling 61,000 kilometres covering 16 states and achieving this incredible feat. Hats off to him, for real, this is one of the best tributes ever. He collected all the soil in one urn which is now displayed at the memorial that was inaugurated today at Lethpora camp in the Pulwama district. The CRPF had invited Jadhav as a special guest at the wreath-laying ceremony since he's gone above and beyond to honour not just the martyred jawans but also their families. © ANI And, this was all him, he didn't have any donations or sponsorships, it's all just from the good of his heart. After the ceremony, he said, "My main purpose was to pay respect and homage to the jawans who lost their lives in the attack. I have travelled more than 61,000 kilometres to collect the soil. Their soil is for mother earth. I am proud that I met all the families of Pulwama martyrs and sought their blessings. Parents lost their son, wives lost their husbands, children lost their fathers and friends lost their friends. I collected soil from their houses and their cremation grounds." He added, "India stands with them, this is my message to the Armed Forces of the country. This is my small effort to show respect for the martyrs." © ANI But, he's still not done it seems, as he's also hoping to raise about Rs 50,000 for each of the martyrsâ families. What a great man!

  2. Kabir Khan's brand new series on Prime Video, The Forgotten Army: Azaadi Ke Liye, features Sunny Kaushal and newcomer Sharvari Wagh as the leads in the series, which is based on true events from India's history. The show will take you back in time to India's battle for freedom and how the Azad Hind Fauj, led by Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, played a crucial role in that. The series, which marks Kabir Khan's digital debut and is based on one of his documentaries also called The Forgotten Army, is now streaming on Prime Video and the audience verdict is finally here. Well, it seems like people have been giving a positive response to the series and are calling it one of the best shows about Netajiâs Azad Hind Fauj. The Forgotten Army Azadi ke lyea is best series.

To see him flourishing into this confident, mature and honest actor, it just fills my heart with so much happiness and awe," the Uri actor wrote in his post.

  3. Rajkumar Gupta has a rather unique way of projecting real stories on the big screen. This time, he chose to dig out the arrest of India's Osama Bin Laden, Yasin Bhatkal or as he is called in the movie, Yusuf. Despite its flaws, 'India's Most Wanted' does make it a point to keep you hooked and engaged in how a small group of officers from the Intelligence Bureau, carried out India's most covert mission. In bits and pieces, Rajkumar Gupta has given us crucial information about the serial blasts that ripped across the country over these years and the mastermind behind it all. © Fox Star Studios The movie has shunned the entire idea of how one thinks an IB officer should be. Instead of going all guns ablaze with James Bond-esque fight scenes and lines dripping with vengeance, 'India's Most Wanted' has completely normalized the scenario, giving it a very raw and realistic aesthetic and you have five very normal-looking people who have normal lives, taking up the almost impossible mission of finding Yusuf. Let me tell you the movie is most definitely worth the watch, despite falling short in a few areas. The first half sets the base for the plot to develop and can get a little dragged-out at some points. But it's the second half of the movie that is more interesting as we get to see the real meat of the story. Of course, the movie could have been better, considering Rajkumar Gupta was the captain of the ship. But, let's take a moment to applaud the director's attempt at something different. Arjun Kapoor has also tried something that's way too different from his regular roles and has surely tried to break out of his shell. He has a certain calmness in his attitude as the man leading the manhunt for the wanted terrorist, but at times, you feel he is a little disinterested and some scenes have come out in a very linear way. If you are wondering the supporting cast has nothing to add to, then you are probably wrong. They have done a brilliant job. The script has been written in such a way that every character has its own space and is justified. Arjun's character Prabhat has got the perfect shield from the supporting cast. The entire mission is carried out in Nepal and somewhere, the movie also goes into details about the relationship between India and the neighbouring nation. Cinematography is one of the major highlights of the movie, as it has beautifully captured the scenic beauty of Nepal. I feel that Sudev Nair, who played the role of India's Most Wanted, Yusuf, could have been a bit more believable. The introduction set for him is pretty strong in the movie, but when you see him at the end, you feel as if all efforts have gone down the drain, as he isn't that convincing as India's Osama. Obviously, I won't give away the climax but I feel that somewhere there the storyline took a fall and failed in packing the perfect punch. Arjun has delivered a very different sort of character, but in the climax, I feel he failed a bit in coming through. Dialogues in the movie follow a pattern. Sometimes, you would feel they are on point and give you goosebumps and sometimes, they seem rather off the mark. But, the idea is not to show jingoism on the screen. Despite all its shortcomings, the movie still managed to instil faith and hope in our Nation and its forces, who may not always get the credit for serving the country. In conclusion, the movie is worth the watch and is a fitting tribute to India's unsung heroes.
  4. The entire country is in epic fervour as the ongoing elections are taking a bizarre toll on various discussions and debates about the next government, and our celebrities are no less when it comes to talking politics, that's for sure. Some of them have even joined political parties to help certain parties win seats. Although the difference in opinion about political parties and candidates do lead to trolling of celebrities, but that's a part and parcel of life. © Pintrest Recently though, things spiralled out of control when a man posted a video of actress Swara Bhaskar's 'epic beizzati'. Yup, that's what he called the video when he posted a short clip posing with her and saying 'Ayega toh Modi hi'. Take a look: Epic beizzati @ReallySwara ð­ð pic.twitter.com/pagmSKMhbU — Mikkuð¼(@effucktivehumor) 8 May 2019 Swara Bhaskar re-tweeted the man's video saying he was posing for a picture with her and she obliged, but he secretly took a video instead! Which is seemingly, really wrong! A guy asks for a selfie @ airport; I oblige 'coz I don't discriminate people who want selfies based on their politics. He sneakily shoots a video. Tacky & underhand tactics r trademarks of bhakts. I'm unsurprised. But always glad 2 make bhakts feel like their lives are worthwhile https://t.co/bKyFEOKZQh — Swara Bhasker (@ReallySwara) 8 May 2019 © Indiatimes We're glad she clarified the situation and the fact that the man tricked her into recording a video and putting his agenda right there, where it was not needed. Swara has campaigned for CPI(M)'s Kanhaiya Kumar in the past and also for AAP, recently. She's been trolled for her political opinions and support to political parties but what this man did was absolutely unethical and wrong and we're glad Swara gave him a befitting response.
  5. The twelfth edition of the Indian Premier League is about to start in less than a month and the hype is escalating on a Godly level. To add fuel to the fire, the new promo has been launched and it surely does justice to all the madness that surrounds an entity that is potentially the most loved league in the country. 8 teams, 1 motto - 1 trophy ð The countdown to the 2019 #VIVOIPL begins ð§®âï¸ðð ARE YOU READY? pic.twitter.com/rk9h1gd8ng — IndianPremierLeague (@IPL) March 5, 2019 In the new promo, a creative parallel has been drawn between the professional cricketers who represent the country on the international level and the young enthusiasts who keep the craze going on the streets. The minute-and-a-half footage deals with the two sides trying to fight against each other over the desire to play the game of cricket they both love equally. Both try to crush the other side behind the wall and acquire as much of the playing space as the can. There's a moment when the 'gully boys' are gaining advance over the Men in Blue, who are now dressed in the colourful jerseys of the cities they will be representing in the upcoming season and Thala aka Mahendra Singh Dhoni, makes an epic entry for his boys, driving a massive road-roller into the equation. This may be a tribute to Mahi's ability to show up in the clutch and like a superhero, single-handedly finish the game in favour of his side. MSD, however, also shows other characteristics of a superhero as he gets rid of the 'wall' that divided the young fans from the players, bringing the youngsters to his side. When one of the aspirants comes forward to introduce himself, the captain of Team India and Royal Challengers Bangalore, Virat Kohli stops him in his way and says: “Name chhodh… Game dikha.” This seems to be the narrative that is going surround this IPL season. With numerous new striplings making their way to all the glitz and glamour, it is their game that will help them make their name in the cricketing world. Fans on Twitter are running out of ways to praising this new promo: BEST IPL ADDDD EVER......ð¤©ð — Rahul Chakrabarty (@rahulchoco7) March 5, 2019 @iamkarthi_V Best promo till date. :) — Prabhu Kandasamy (@PrabhuK_PK) March 5, 2019 Entry of msâ¤ï¸ — Vamshi (@svamshi183) March 5, 2019 ð¥ð¥ð¥ðð — Ràjá RãjPûT (@Prabhat17605793) March 5, 2019 Brilliant!ð ð¶ðµð§ðµð¶ — Kedar Kulkarni (@outwidit) March 5, 2019
  6. Back in November, when the selectors announced the Indian squad for the T20I series against West Indies and Australia, the absence of Mahendra Singh Dhoni had left many fans and former cricketers bemused. But, amid all hue and cry, the former Indian captain clarified that he had excluded himself from the two series in order to allow young Rishabh Pant some much-needed gametime. Dhoni further backed the youngster and called him his potential successor behind the stumps. And, if anyone witnessed Pant's exploits in the recently-concluded 1st Test between India and Australia, they'd agree that the Delhi cricketer didn't disappoint. The scores of 25 & 28 (across the two innings) might not do justice to the left-hander, but, given the ever-changing match situations at the Adelaide Oval, Pant's knocks surely helped India's cause. He might not have scored a fifty or a hundred, but his biggest contribution in India's 31-run triumph, as predicted by Dhoni, came from behind the stumps. © BCCL Repaying the faith of Dhoni and the selectors, Pant made everyone proud by equalling the world record of most catches taken by a wicket-keeper in a single Test match. The Delhi cricketer took 11 catches against Australia in Adelaide and matched the heroics of Jack Russell and AB de Villiers - both of whom were earlier standing tall with the unique feat. The 21-year-old caught six batsmen - Usman Khawaja, Peter Handscomb, Travis Head, Tim Paine, Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood - in the first innings and then took five more catches in the second. Pant equalled the world record for most catches in a single Test in the 101th over when Mohammed Shami got Starc to edge one through to the Indian wicket-keeper. For someone who considers Dhoni as his role model, Pant, then, came up with a brilliant tribute to the Jharkhand cricketer. "He's (Dhoni) the hero of the country. I've learnt a lot from him as a person and as a cricketer as well. Whenever he's around, I feel more confident as a person. If I've got any problems I can share it with him and get a solution right away," Pant told cricket.com.au. © AP "As a wicket-keeper and a player (he's taught me) to be patient in pressure situations like this (in Adelaide). You have to keep calm and keep composed and try to give 100 per cent," he added. Talking about equalling the world record, Pant said: "I never thought of the record but it's good to take some catches and put it inside my kitty. It's good to have milestones, but I'm not thinking about that too much".
  7. In his recent interview, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak mentioned that Indians measure success with academic excellence and a good job, but lack creativity. “The culture here is one of success based upon academic excellence, studying, learning, practiSing and having a good job and a great life. For upper India, not the lower. I see two Indias. That's a lot like Singapore study, study, work hard and you get an MBA, you will have a Mercedes but where is the creativity? The creativity gets left out when your behaviour is too predictable and structured, everyone is similar. Look at a small country like New Zealand, the writers, singers, athletes, it's a whole different world,” he told the interviewers Pankaj Doval and Surojit Gupta. According to Woz, India has Infosys as an example of the big tech company and even that is not very innovative. We all know how true his statements are. India has been very competitive in terms of education for decades now, students are often burdened with earning and looking after their family since a young age. In circumstances like these, the education system, as well as the social mindset, is to concentrate on academics and move on in a safe and secure fashion. Citizens of developed countries have a cushion available, this enables them to try out new things and explore 'extra-curricular' activities. But as usual, there will always be a lot of people who'll take offence to Woz's statement. How dare an outsider who has no idea how things work here to comment on our lack of creativity? Tweets: So Steve Woz says Indians lack creativity. There's a reason why Steve Jobs got rid of this dolt earlier in the life of @Apple : and as for our creativity: he needs to spend a lifetime understanding Jugaad. — SUHEL SETH (@suhelseth) February 27, 2018 Steve Wozniak says Indians aren't creative. I bet he hasn't heard about the PNB bank fraud. — Nischal (WazirX) (@NischalShetty) February 27, 2018 Take back your words Mr. Steve Woz. It was an indian who made the world's cheapest car ( nano). It was because of an Indian you are able to add zeros ( because it was an Indian who gave the world the number zero) behind the cost of your cheap mobile phones. — Satyanarayanan (@satish1468) February 26, 2018 Steve Woz stole code and hardware and made apple PC which was not even a new invention. APJ Abdul Kalam made most efficient GSLV rockets in the world. He made under water missiles and supervised the development of world's fastest cruise missiles. Lulz — Harshal (@Bhoolwerine) February 27, 2018 Woz... I believe you don't have knowledge to judge creativity cause only creative people understand others creativity — Kaushal (@Kaushal925Kumar) February 27, 2018 May be he should come to India and live here for a week. He will get to know how creative Indians are. NASA is running because of 30 percent Indians only. The only reason we are lagging behind is because of bad politics in our country. India is not spending well on R and D. — Mohit Garg (@mohitgarg34) February 27, 2018 Indians run some of the biggest technology companies Example-Google by Sundar Pichie Microsoft by Satya nadela — ððSreeram S Pðð (@Sreeram_SP_) February 26, 2018 On the flip side, there were a few who understood what he meant and were vocal about their support for the same: Yes we have to invoke that era because that was the era when we were independent n free to take decisions on our own.. The 800 odd years of rule has killed that ecosystem that helped such creativity to thrive. We are in the process of rebuilding that ecosystem. We wl get there — SCM Consultant (@oarhtanirs) February 27, 2018 I think Steve Woz is right! India is busy accumulating and not creating... Look at our businesses, media, influencers, musics, choreographs, cinemas... everything is so copied.May be coz we're too risk averse and choose to walk on a proven path at everything in our lives ð — Somenath Das (@somenathdasb) February 27, 2018
  8. [embed_video1 url=http://stream.jeem.tv/vod/1bec3aba34ce155eb9b797de0976e316.mp4/playlist.m3u8?wmsAuthSign=c2VydmVyX3RpbWU9Mi85LzIwMTggMTA6NDU6MjIgQU0maGFzaF92YWx1ZT03eHMyekxaQ2E3cHowaTJHUkpwMEJBPT0mdmFsaWRtaW51dGVzPTYwJmlkPTE= style=center] Shopping for clothes can be one of the most fun things to do. But the experience can easily turn into a nightmare if there is a hidden camera in the trial room recording unsuspecting people to feed some sick person's fantasy. Here are some easy ways to ensure you don?t walk into such a trap: Look around carefully Once you enter the fitting room of any clothing store, scan around with your eyes to spot any hidden camera inside the room. Look closely at the mirror(s) around you. You might even see through a two-way mirror. Press your face against the glass and cup your eyes with your hands to block all light. A see-through mirror is made in a way that allows some light to pass through it, and so if you look closely you might see the room beyond. The finger test Touch the mirror with your finger. If it is a real mirror, there will be some space between the refection of your finger and your actual finger. If, however, your finger and its reflection touch at a point, get alert: it may not be a real mirror but a two-way mirror. The phone test Once inside the fitting room, switch on Wi-Fi on your mobile phone. If your internet doesn?t work properly, there may be a camera in the room as it blocks the receptions of your phone. Another way to check for a camera is to make a call with your phone. If the call doesn?t go through or the signals are really bad, it is possible that there is a camera hidden somewhere.
  9. Childhood is a crucial time for any kid. The things they learn and the changes they go through shapes their personality and future. Further, our childhood is also a time where we meet new people, some make us realize the meaning of true friendship and others make us regret for meeting them. We are talking about the school bullies who take pride in insulting others and making their lives miserable to soothe their shallow souls. Having said that, I don't think there's anyone who can understand this feeling of hatred and friendship better than 11-year-old Phil Mike from Indiana, who found unlikely friends in 50 bikers who escorted him to school and gave a fitting response to bullying. Mike was a victim of bullying, both physical and emotional and right when he lost hope in humanity and his life, Brent Warfield along with his fellow motorcyclists came to his rescue and filled him in with the much needed confidence. Brent even posted about the same on his Facebook page. For several months, the 6th grader Mike was being bullied and body-shamed by his classmates. He was not only emotionally tortured, but was beaten up by them as well. He was called fat and the kids would even kick him in private parts. Mike was hesitant about sharing his ordeal initially; however, his mother got him to talk after noticing changes in him. She was shocked to see that bullying got so bad that Mike was even considering suicide. Mike was so heartbroken and tormented that he started feeling worthless and would think of himself as a stupid kid. © Facebook However, things changed for good and Mike found an angel in Brent Warfield of the United Motorcycle Enthusiasts. Warfield told CNN, “Kids are getting bullied and I can't stand it.” He further added, “We are trying to help the community and spread awareness to prevent kids from being mean to others and prevent possible suicides.” Warfield was so moved by Mike's story that he decided to help Mike start his school on a different note and show the world who the real boss is. So together with Brent and his biker friends, Phil kick-started his first day of his school year, leaving all the bad memories behind and wearing the garb of confidence to face the new life that's waiting for him ahead. In fact, Mike's mother said that the bike ride was the first time she saw him smile in a long time. © Pixabay (For representation) This entire incident has definitely brought a smile on Mike's face and that of everyone who came across this biker community's selfless attitude. Warfield turned out to be Mike's silver lining in the dark clouds of sadness and trauma and we hope that more people learn that a small act of kindness can go a long way. Bullying is not something to brag about and definitely not a way to show how ‘cool' you are. While, you might enjoy beating a kid, body-shaming them or passing mean comments in the name of jokes, it might leave a deep scar on that kid's life and they might never cope with that mental trauma. So stop bullying others to show your shallow strength. Source: CNN
  10. Shah Rukh Khan's PDA moments with Abram Khan are no secret. The Raees actor loves to pose with Abram Khan and often shares the pictures on his social media as he likes to show off his fatherly affection in public. Abram Khan is an adorable toddler who knows how to pose for the camera just like his daddy and here is the proof. Shah Rukh Khan took it to Instagram to share yet another cute picture of Abram as he placed his own picture next to it and the resemblance is uncanny. The picture was taken at a party which took place on May 27.
  11. The 64th National Film Awards have been announced and our favourites from 2016 seem to have fared brilliantly. ‘Neerja’ has won the national award for the best Hindi film of 2016 and deservedly so. Based on Neerja Bhanot, the woman who single-handedly took on terrorists to save the lives of 359 passengers onboard the flight of Pan Am Flight 73 in Karachi, the film was a fitting tribute to the woman who sacrificed her life for others. © Fox Star Studios The heroic flight attendant who died fighting terrorists was all of 22, a girl with aspirations like most other girls. What set her apart was the decision she took, the decision to risk her life to save the lives of hundreds of others. Posthumously honoured with the Ashok Chakra, she was a role model for thousands of her fellow countrymen. The film ‘Neerja’ was a brilliantly made film, directed by Ram Madhvani, while Sonam Kapoor pulled off the role with much responsibility. © NH Studios While ‘Neerja’ won the best Hindi film national award, Amitabh Bachchan’s ‘Pink’ bagged the national award for the Best Film On Social Issue. A very important film, ‘Pink’ made a powerful case for consent in a country where rapes are justified as little mistakes boys make. © Walt Disney Studios Zaira Wasim, the 16-year-old actress who plays Babita Phogat in ‘Dangal’, also won the national award for the best supporting actress. Winning a national award for your first film is a huge achievement and we’re sure the young girl is elated.
  12. Election rallies are all about high hopes, useless talk and promises that know no boundaries – made in an attempt to impress the public and make them vote in their favour. However, at times our dear ministers go too far that even ‘controversy’ becomes an understatement for their words. Our Prime Minister Narendra Modi also fell in a deep sea of his own words, when he took a jibe at Harvard University while encouraging people to work hard. Things escalated quickly from there on as a Harvard University student from Chandigarh wrote a letter to Modi saying that “mocking” economists and credible academic institutions will only isolate India from the world. © Wikimedia Prateek Kanwal is pursuing a Master’s Degree in public policy from the prestigious university. He wrote the letter after PM Modi said at an election rally in UP that “hard work is more powerful than Harvard”. Kanwal’s letter, that has gone viral, puts forward a lot of important aspects that people usually tend to miss out on. He further added “The very fact that you mentioned Harvard while campaigning in front of people who are mostly uneducated shows that you have been rattled by the observations made by some of the most influential economists in the world.” However, while we agree with his point, making the assumption that people are “mostly uneducated” does not really support his stand either. © Facebook Modi didn’t just make a remark on Harvard, he took a dig at economists too, such as a milder attack towards former PM Manmohan Singh, for his opinion on demonetisation leading to a low growth rate. Reportedly, this is what Modi had said. “Big scholars, some from Harvard, some from Oxford…some said there will be a drop of 2 per cent in the GDP, others said 4 per cent drop (after demonetisation). But the country has seen what the people from Harvard think and what hard working people think.” To be honest, the demonetisation drive was an unmitigated disaster so mocking prestigious varsities does not really help in strengthening our monetary decisions and Kanwal’s letter talks about the same. He further added that such remarks will push away people who hope to return to India after graduation. © Wikimedia Kanwal also wrote in his letter, “We are also taught statesmanship here at Harvard, which not only builds character but also leads to bi-partisanship. A true statesman knows how to respectfully disagree and engage with an opposing ideology.” Kanwal further added, “To develop a country as diverse as India you will need the help of people who bring a different perspective to the table. Mocking economists and credible institutions will only isolate us from the world.” We definitely agree with Kanwal here. Kanwal even called himself a ‘hardworking nationalist’ and mentioned that the demonetisation plan could have benefitted the country if the government used an “evidence based learning” approach. Now, that’s a major burn for Modi and the government. We wonder how our PM will react once he comes across this letter. Source: Hindustan Times
  13. After Shobhaa De’s verbal diarrhoea bout got her trolled, the police officer who was fat shamed by her has spoken up. Heavy police bandobast in Mumbai today! pic.twitter.com/sY0H3xzXl3 — Shobhaa De (@DeShobhaa) February 21, 2017 The police officer in question is Daulatram Jogawat, who is an inspector with the MP police. His obese look is not courtesy how Shobhaa mocked him. Apparently, post a gall bladder operation in 1993, he has been suffering from an insulin imbalance in the body. In an interview, he said, "Nobody loves to be overweight. If madam knows about some weight-loss treatment, then help me lose weight. It is not good to mock someone without having any detail about the person." Twitter is a ground where a lot of people mock others and sometimes, it is in good taste. But what Shobhaa did is clear crass and insensitive. Body shaming highlights the low mentality of the person trying to shame the other. She eventually had to apologise after a hard lesson in being human. Mumbai/Maharashtra Police, pranaam. No offence intended.

If you sit in a park with friends from the same gender, no one gives two flying f**ks about it; but if you take a stroll with the ‘opposite’ *** – you will possibly end up turning several heads and get one priceless ‘gyaan’ that will leave you in existential crisis. That’s exactly what happened with Vishnu Vichu and his female friend, who were left baffled when two female cops came and started interrogating them and called their behaviour “vulgar” for no reason. Now, while some people prefer walking away from such situations, Vichu turned the tables on the cops by going live on Facebook and grilled them for their act of moral policing. Wow, not only is this guy’s digital game on point, but he also knows how to deal with tricky situations smartly. © Facebook Before anyone jumps to conclusions that we are taking sides, let’s try to look at the entire situation. This incident happened in Napier Museum in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala where Vishnu was sitting with his female friend. Two female cops suddenly turn up and start shooting questions at their so-called vulgar behaviour and accused them of creating a public nuisance. However, Vishnu wasn’t ready to give in so easily and asked the cops if they saw them kissing or if they have any proof of their indecent actions. It’s sad to see that peeing in public is socially accepted but holding hands or sitting and taking selfies is “vulgar”. Pissed off with this moral policing, Vishnu even asked whether they would have had any problems if a gay or a lesbian couple sat there. But then even homosexuality isn’t accepted with open arms in our society! So, this means we can’t like people from the same ***, neither can we spend time at a public place with people from the opposite *** – what exactly does our society want from us? © Flickr However, another important thing to take into account is the power of social media and how it can make or break any deal, if it’s put to good use. This incident has proved that nothing goes unnoticed from the wary eyes of the Internet and we millennials know it better than anyone else. Facebook’s Live feature isn’t just about doing random things and Vishnu has set an example that you don’t need someone wearing a cape come to your rescue, you can make your voice heard even within a few minutes and with a small device. Here’s the entire video. In the present time, if there is anything more dangerous than the lathis of the Delhi or Punjab police; it’s the baseless allegations and lectures of some moral know-it-all who leave no stone unturned in making your life hell. In Vishnu’s case, when the cops accused them of indulging in indecent behaviour, he asked for proof to justify their allegations, however, the cops ran out of words and decided to continue attacking them for creating a public nuisance. But this brings to light some important questions – is every guy or girl sitting with us our partner? Even if they are, is there anything wrong in sitting and clicking selfies or holding hands? Do we need to be married to sit in public places? When will such issues be addressed? And why are our private lives a matter of interest for these meddlesome eyes? But, we really appreciate the efforts of this Kerala couple who chose to fight against this moral policing and got tremendous support from netizens as it became viral within no time. As for the people who love moral policing, next time you should possibly come prepared because we millennials can’t be messed with like that. Source: The News Minute
  15. These days, it has become very easy for people to draw ‘anti-nationalist’ connotation to anything and everything that others say and blame them for the same. That’s exactly what happened with the External Affairs Minister, Sushma Swaraj, who was accused on Twitter of helping only the Muslims. The tweet that was posted on both Swaraj’s as well as Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s accounts, mentioned that she was only helping the Muslims with visa issues while the Hindus were getting harassed. Modi Ji @narendramodi Your Sushma @SushmaSwaraj,Only take care Of Muslim Visa. But Hindus are getting harrased to get India Visa. VERY UPSET — HINDU JAGARAN SANGHA (@HinduJagoran) January 20, 2017 Being a true sport, Sushma Swaraj replied to the user in the best way possible. Calling Indians her people, she said that religion is not relevant for her. India is my country. Indians are my people. The caste, state, language or religion is not relevant for me. https://t.co/z59339vjGt — Sushma Swaraj (@SushmaSwaraj) January 20, 2017 This is not the first time anyone is criticizing Swaraj, a few days ago, author Shobhaa De tried to troll the former and got hit by ‘Karma’ right in the feels. Had Swaraj done anything wrong or was shady in her tweets, people would have had a field day seeing her get trolled, but she has been doing a commendable job and has been appreciated both in India and abroad for the same. © BCCL From helping a man get his wife’s passport to helping a son come back to India for his father’s last rites, Swaraj has always been prompt to not only reply but make sure that people get the needed help. Earlier, she came to the rescue of 10,000 migrant workers going hungry in the Gulf either because their salaries were withheld or they were laid off. She was even ranked in the 15 ‘Global Thinkers’ of 2016. She even warned the Amazon officials when they were selling tricolor doormats on their e-commerce platform. Well, time and again, Sushma Swaraj has proved her mettle by helping the citizens and to say the least, she has put Twitter to good use in a time when politicians are using it only as a medium to malign the opposition and the establishment.
