  1. Bollywood celebs keep us excited, not just with their on-screen presence but also with trivia on their investments and big fat pay-cheques. As decades passed, the numbers have only risen and besides all the money being spent on making a movie, the fees of B-town actors continue to make our jaws drop. While we can assume the cost to be a bomb in today's time, let's take a look at what a fat pay cheque looked like in the '90s. 1. Amitabh Bachchan © Twitter/Amitabh Bachchan A legendary actor, who has done more than 190 movies, Big B started his career in 1969 and made his debut with Saat Hindustani. Speaking of his fees in the 90s, he was amongst the highest-paid actors. All the projects that he picked post Khuda Gawah, he charged Rs 3 Crores approximately per film. That's a lot if you consider it in the 90s! 2. Ajay Devgn © Twitter/Ajay Devgn The promising actor made his debut in Bollywood with Phool Aur Kaante. In the 90s, he was earning Rs 70 Lakhs as per reports for each movie that he did. Though his movies failed to strike a chord with the audience initially, the actor's career progressed with time and his earning increased too. 3. Madhuri Dixit © Twitter/Madhuri Dixit Touted as one of the most talented actresses, Madhuri Dixit gave some massive hits back in the '90s. Hum Aapke Hain Kaun hit the jackpot at the box office and broke records. Post the success of this movie, Madhuri charged Rs 50 Lakhs for Rakesh Roshan's Koyla. 4. Sunny Deol © Twitter/Sunny Deol Once the most bankable star of Bollywood, Sunny Deol proved his prowess post Gadar and Ghayal. These two movies established his name in the industry. The actor was said to charge Rs 50 Lakhs for Rajkumar Kohli's Jaani Dushman, but soon enough, his fee soared and it was hiked to Rs 60-70 Lakhs. 5. Shah Rukh Khan © Twitter/SRK King Khan delivered back to back hit movies in the '90s. The actor who gave some massive hits including Karan Arjun and Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge charged Rs 30 Lakhs per movie and post that we saw him strike a chord with the audience in Dil To Pagal Hai, Yes Boss and Pardes. 6. Akshay Kumar © Twitter/Akshay Kumar Akshay Kumar's star value soared in 1994, when he had 12 films, back to back. The actor earned a staggering Rs 55 Lakhs, post his movie Mohra and the zeroes only went onto increase with time. Cut to 2020, as per reports the actor has plausibly become the highest-paid actor and is said to have signed Aanand L Rai's next movie and has reportedly charged Rs 120 Crores approximately for it. (Yes, you read that right.) 7. Suniel Shetty © TOI Suniel Shetty's first movie Balwaan which released in 1992, tanked majorly at the box office. But, he saw success after the release of his movie Mohra, post which his success streak only rose with Gopi Kishan. His fee for Rajkumar Kohli's Jaani Dushman was worth Rs 30 Lakhs. 8. Nana Patekar © Twitter/Nana Patekar After Nana Patekar's revolutionary performances in movies like Tirangaa and Krantiveer, the actor hiked his price to Rs 50 Lakhs. He has also reportedly donated 90% of his income to charity. View the full article
  2. The Indian Army wants its personnel to refrain from social media apps for any kind of official or personal communication. On Wednesday, citing security reasons, the Indian Army asked its personnel to delete their accounts from 89 social media apps by July 15 or face action. The range of apps that are restricted now for them include social media accounts, e-commerce and dating sites among other commonly used apps. Some of these apps are Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, Snapchat, songs.pk, WeChat, Hike, Likee, Shareit, True Caller, PUBG, Tinder, according to a news report. This substantial move has come amid a two-front cyberwar with China and Pakistan as the Indian Army takes into account an "exponential increase" in the number of cases being targeted by their intelligence agencies. Amid the weeks of tensions between India and China following the worst border skirmish in more than five decades, New Delhi is being watchful on all fronts possible. The "all-weather" friends have been trying to trouble India at the LOC and LAC. Even last year, the Indian Army stated in its advisory that the popular social media platform Facebook has turned out to be a crucial source of collecting intelligence, which is why officers holding critical posts in the army must consider deactivating their accounts. Here we have listed out in detail the number of banned apps for the Indian Army personnel under 17 different categories.

  3. From calling a rescue operator a “pedo guy” on Twitter, to smoking weed during one of the most-watched podcasts, and naming his child a seemingly random combination of characters, Elon Musk surely knows how to stay in the news. However, if there is one celebrity billionaire who is actually, at the face of it, seemingly working for the betterment of human lives, it is Elon Musk. © Reuters We have come to recognise him as that eccentric billionaire who has successfully privatised space travel and is making us rethink cars and personal automobiles, thanks to Tesla. Some of us, who have followed the man know him since his days at X.com or what came to be known as PayPal. What most of us don't know, is how he came to be the billionaire that he is. © Reuters Well, technically, we know how he earned his billions; what most of us don't know, is how exactly he earned his first billion dollars, the milestone that is the hardest to crack into. The thing is, once you have your first billion, it becomes relatively easy to expand your fortune - most billionaires have said so in a number of interviews. What one really needs to be careful about, is how they invest their money, and that they do not squander it away on pointless things. So how did Elon Musk manage to do it? Making the first billion for him was indeed difficult, as compared to the rest of his $54 Billion. © Reuters 1. Starting Out With Odd Jobs © Reddit/r/muskclan Musk got his first paycheck for $500 when at the age of 10, he developed a computer game. When as a teen, he moved to Canada from South Africa, is where he really started working. Before enrolling in college education, he worked as a lumberjack and would cut trees for a lumber company. During this time, he would also work a number of odd and hazardous jobs that would be paying high, like cleaning out the rooms where the logs were disinfected and cleaned, just because no one was willing to do it. Imagine a guy with degrees in Economics and Physics doing such odd jobs, today. 2. Establishing His First Company © Reddit/r/muskclan Borrowing some money from his dad, Elon and his brother Kimbal, during the Dot Com boom, started a company called Zip2, a company that provided real-time maps to media outlets. This was one of the first rudimentary GPS systems that was easily accessible for the common public. This company was bought by Compaq for about $310 Million, of which, musk got about $22 Million. The brothers went on to open up X.com the world's first digital payment and online bank that allowed international transactions. X.com bought a software security company called Confinity, the real founders of PayPal. Soon, the venture was renamed as PayPal. 3. Selling PayPal © Reddit/r/muskclan Contrary to popular belief, Elon Musk did not become a billionaire when e-Bay bought PayPal. All Musk earned from that venture was $180 Million. E-Bay made that acquisition for $1.5 Billion, but because there were a lot of investors, and partners in X.com, Elon got just over 10-12 per cent of the deal. 4. Establishing SpaceX © Reuters With the proceeds he got from the sale of PayPal, Musk started his 3rd company, SpaceX or Space Exploration Technologies. Within 6 years, it was regularly getting contracts from NASA to deliver cargo to the International Space Station. During this time, NASA also outsourced the development of some major projects to SpaceX. This is the business venture that vastly contributed to Musk's personal wealth. 5. Establishing Tesla Incorporated © Reuters Musk was always interested in the physics of energy, and had even gotten into Stanford University's doctoral program before he started his first company. After establishing SpaceX, Musk founded Tesla. Although we know Tesla today as one of the most valuable automobile companies in the world, automotive is just one of the many aspects of the company. There was a time when a majority of the company's cash flow came from providing plans and components for solar power plants and high volume electricity storages that were sustainable in nature. It was Tesla's energy division, which was earlier called SolarCity before it was acquired by him, that really earned Musk his first Billion. © Reuters Tesla won a number of government contracts, especially outside the USA regarding his energy storage solutions. We're talking about massive storage systems, ones that could power entire cities for days without end. From here on out, Musk went completely bonkers - he founded The Boring Company, which shares, invested more into his Hyperloop project, and invested in his AI company. View the full article
  4. The COVID-19 pandemic has changed our lives in more ways than one. Even after months of lockdown, the virus is still lurking around in the various parts of the world, making it hard for us to get back to our day-to-day lives. But it looks like we finally have some good news. According to a new report, it looks like India's first indigenous COVID-19 could be ready for public use by August 15. The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) has asked medical institutions and hospitals to expedite clinical trials for the vaccine. © Reuters If everything goes to the plan, then it looks like the vaccine will be made available to the public by August 15 2020. Here's everything that you need to know: Joining Hands With BBIL ICMR has partnered with Bharat Biotech International Limited (BBIL) for the clinical trials of this indigenous vaccine 'Covaxin' for the coronavirus disease. A total of 12 institutes have been selected for the clinical trial. Trial Locations © Reuters These institutes are located in Visakhapatnam, Rohtak, New Delhi, Patna, Belgaum (Karnataka), Nagpur, Gorakhpur, Kattankulathur (Tamil Nadu), Hyderabad, Arya Nagar, Kanpur (Uttar Pradesh), Goa, and Bhubaneswar-based Institute of Medical Sciences and SUM Hospital. Top Priority Right Now ICMR Director-General Dr Balram Bhargava noted that this is one of the "top priority projects which is being monitored at the top-most level of the government". The vaccine was developed and manufactured in Bharat Biotech's facility located in Genome Valley in Hyderabad. Another Vaccine In Development © Reuters Meanwhile, another candidate is also being developed Ahmedabad-based Zydus Cadila Healthcare. It's also considered to be a potential vaccine candidate, however, we don't have much about it just yet. The First Vaccine To Receive Approval The 'Covaxin' has become the first candidate developed in India to receive the Drug Controller General of India's approval to enter human trials.

  6. There's been a lot of tech controversies over the years that made people burst out with anger and straight-up boycott the products. We've seen it a lot of times in the past and we're witnessing something similar right now. In case you don't know, here's a quick list of the biggest tech boycotts we've seen over the years: 1. Boycott Facebook © Facebook Back in 2018, Facebook was in a lot of trouble for the scandal involving Cambridge Analytica. It was one of the biggest data breaches we had ever seen, affecting millions of users across the globe. It sparked the conversation about privacy and data breach, but it came at a huge cost. People across the globe started boycotting Facebook by deleting their accounts and uninstalling the app. A lot of people still don't use Facebook, but the dust seems to have settled since then. That being said, it'll go as one of the biggest tech boycotts we've seen. 2. Boycott Chinese Products © Xiaomi A lot of Indians are currently protesting against the use of Chinese products due to the on-going border tensions between the two countries. When it comes to boycotting Chinese products, there are a lot of devices here like smartphones, TVs, appliances, and other peripherals. It's not as easy as it sounds, but the movement is going strong none the less. 3. Boycott Snapchat © Reuters There was a time when Snapchat was in the middle of an unavoidable controversy back in 2017 when CEO Evan Spiegel mentioned 'poor India' in one of his comments. It was definitely not a good look for the company. But a lot of people misunderstood the company name and started uninstalling 'Snapdeal' instead of Snapchat. 4. Boycott Microsoft ExcelSimilarly, an outrage over anti-Hindu detergent ad found a new target in Microsft Excel. Instead of raging against Surf Excel, people weirdly started uninstalling Microsoft Excel app from their phones. The same trended on Twitter too. View the full article
  7. Ever since the tragic death of Sushant Singh Rajput, people have been going after Bollywood and all the stars who they think are to blame. The debate surrounding nepotism has been reignited and all the star kids are getting called out and eventually getting 'cancelled'. After Alia Bhatt and Sonam Kapoor, it was time for Arjun Kapoor to come under the wrath of the internet after news resurfaced that Sushant was originally going to play the main role in the movie Half Girlfriend, which is based on Chetan Bhagat's novel. © ALT Entertainment While it's great to call out the inequalities in Bollywood and acknowledge how nepotism is rampant in the industry, this case might not be that deep. While everyone was busy trolling Arjun, no one seemed to get their facts right about the casting. It was actually Sushant who had walked out of the movie before Arjun was cast, and we're not trying to defend Arjun Kapoor, but facts are facts. Reportedly, Sushant had already agreed to do a different movie and due to dates clashing, he had to opt out of Half Girlfriend. #ArjunKapoor IS IT???? Half girlfriend was given to SSR?? pic.twitter.com/YHJ3s7eWgl â Aishna Prabhakar (@AishnaPrabhakar) June 24, 2020 Moreover, even if Sushant was involuntarily replaced in the project, the blame would still fall on the makers instead of the actor. There's no denying that Arjun has obviously benefitted from the Kapoor surname and by belonging to a film family, but at least in this situation, he's not at fault. Yep. Arjun Kapoor did this movie finally because of Nepotism pic.twitter.com/UvkkpQttZ4 â Saffron Aayush (@iDubeyAayush) June 23, 2020 He's getting trolled now. #ArjunKapoor trending While planning to leave twitter Arjun Kapoor to other nepo kids: pic.twitter.com/lyKEPWuR8E â Vikram singh (@poptheIcons) June 24, 2020 Hmm. #ArjunKapoor *People after watching Arjun Kapoor's Acting* People to Bollywood:- pic.twitter.com/BeOeeoDux0 â Sarcasto (@Sarco69) June 24, 2020 People are really at it. #ArjunKapoor #halfgirlfriend My reaction after watching arjun kapoor performance in halfgirlfriend :- pic.twitter.com/vQbnXD3vjp â Billu (@sarcasmic_billu) June 24, 2020 Sonam and Arjun are the new target on Twitter. Sonam Kapoor has acted in over 20 movies and her success rate is below 38%. Is it because of bad Karma in her past life? Sonam's cousin Arjun Kapoor has acted in a dozen movies and proved himself to be a flop, mediocre actor.

  8. After NH 10, Pari, Phillauri, and Paatal Lok, we are very much convinced that Anushka Sharma has an eye for great content. Well, it's time everything has moved to OTT platforms and Anushka is following the wave. With Paatal Lok, she conquered the web and the response to her series was crazy on Twitter and other social media platforms. Now, the actor has teamed up with Netflix for one more original venture, a film titled Bulbbul. Anushka took to Twitter to share the teaser of her next original movie and wrote, "Here's your first look at #Bulbbul, a fantastic tale about self-discovery, and justice, wrapped in lore, mystery, and intrigue, coming soon on @NetflixIndia. Can't wait to share more!" It does look exciting but not much is revealed in the teaser. Just like us, we are sure that you all are also left wanting for more. Times have certainly changed as women producers and directors have taken the charge of telling stories and this one is a prime example of it. Here's your first look at #Bulbbul, a fantastic tale about self-discovery, and justice, wrapped in lore, mystery and intrigue, coming soon on @NetflixIndia. Can't wait to share more!@OfficialCSFilms #KarneshSharma #AnvittaDutt @manojmittra #SaurabhMalhotra pic.twitter.com/3dhEbBH1VT â Anushka Sharma (@AnushkaSharma) June 10, 2020 So, here's all that we know about Bulbbul : 1. If you loved Avinash Tiwari and Tripti Dimri in the modern version of Laila Majnu, then you are in for a treat as the magical pair is all set to tell you one more tale. We have loved them in their debut film and we are sure that this time too, they will leave their mark. 2. The movie falls into a supernatural horror genre and it will be nice to see how Anushka, after Pari, brings in something new on the table. 3. Well, the story, according to Netflix, is 'an Indian fable set in 20th Century Bengal. The film traverses the journey of a young girl, Bulbbul from innocence to strength, as the legend of a âchudailâ casts a looming shadow over her [Bulbbulâs] world'. 4. With Bulbbul, Anvitta Dutt, a lyricist and dialogue writer is making her debut as a director. If you don't know about Anvitta, she is the one behind songs like Khuda Jaane, London Thumakda, and many other popular numbers. My beautiful and talented friend #AnvitaDutt marks her directorial debut with this haunting film #Bulbbul on @NetflixIndia releasing on June 24th Congratulations to the entire team and to you @shrishtiarya pic.twitter.com/w4FwPn2eKY â Shruti Seth (@SethShruti) June 10, 2020 5. Fans are already excited for this one as after the phenomenal success of Paatal Lok, people are expecting one more hit venture.

  9. Our Verdict: A lockdown-worthy binge-fest (but itâs not for the faint-hearted). Revenge dramas set in the heartland are the winning genre of the season. But tread with caution because they arenât for everyone. MX Playerâs new Original Series Raktanchal is just what the trailer promised â a gripping and gory tale of vengeance. Set in the 1980s of Purvanchal, Uttar Pradesh, the show brings alive the tender wars that ruled the political power play. After the government back then decided to open lucrative projects for public bidding, it was no less than an unnerving war of tenders. The first episode âThe Bad Bloodâ introduces us to Waseem Khan, played by Nikitin Dheer, the mafia king of the tender war. With tenders rigged in his favour and money laundered right up to the top government official, he enjoyed unprecedented power in Purvanchal. That is until his well-oiled deal falls back with the entry of our anti-hero Vijay Singh, played by Kranti Prakash Jha. Driven by vengeance for his fatherâs death, Vijay Singh disrupts the tender chain and the result is bloody mayhem. Known for his negative role in Chennai Express, Nikitin Dheer fits the bill of Waseem Khan to the T. His cold and withering reel persona makes Waseem Khan one of the most feared gangsters. On the other hand, Kranti Prakash Jha aces the role of the underdog in this bloodbath. MX Player High on crime, drama, violence and crude language, the show is a sure-shot winner when it comes to the gangster genre. With new characters and plot twists introduced in almost every episode, the 9-episodic season one goes by in a flurry, leaving you on the edge of your couch wanting more. Director Ritam Srivastav cuts the long chase short with a fast-paced storyline. Raktanchal is also lead by a strong ensemble cast. From the calculative Pujari (played by Ravi Khanvilkar) to the reckless Sanki (player Vikram Kochhar), these characters extend significant support to the tale of Purvanchal. With violent plot twists and crude drama, Raktanchal makes for a quick lockdown watch. The show is available on MX Player and you can stream it for FREE with zero subscription! View the full article
  10. If there's one television show, that has an indelible impression on us, it is CID without an iota of doubt. The show is engraved deep in our memory and it first aired in 1998 with 1500 episodes. It is the longest-running show and is enjoyed even today, even if it's a repeat telecast. The beauty of the show lies in its concept, as it never moved away from its core with Daya breaking down doors while taking ACP Pradyuman's orders. Here's a look back at all the famous people on CID and what they are doing now. 1. Shivaji Satam View this post on Instagram#CORONA Cut ð feel so âlightheadedâ ð¤©ððA post shared by (@shivaaji_satam) View this post on Instagram#Latadidi ... sharing in one of my lifeâs greatest , most beautiful moments , humming along singingalong with none other than the greatest , most beautiful of all , Latadidi ðâ¤ï¸â¤ï¸ð¥°ð¥°ðð¤©ð¤©ðA post shared by (@shivaaji_satam) The lead, Shivaji Satam, who plays ACP Pradyuman on the show is remembered for his dialogues, speculations and the way he resolved a crime without any rest. His character brought more life to the show and has been stuck in our hearts. The actor continues to impress us even on the big screen as he has been a part of many Bollywood and Marathi films and shows. 2. Dayanand Shetty View this post on InstagramHey Everyone â¤ï¸A post shared by (@dayanandshetty_official) View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@dayanandshetty_official) Dayanand Shetty as we all know was a senior inspector known as Daya and the most iconic dialogue 'Daya Darwaza tod do' became famous because of him.

Besides that, the actor has also been a part of many movies like Lakshya, Black Friday, Super 30 etc and continues to make his mark in the industry with his acting chops. 4.

  11. Remember the HTC Exodus 1S smartphone? Yes, the entry-level blockchain phone from HTC that we asked you to stay away from? Well, the phone is back in the news again. It looks like the phone is capable of turning into a money-making machine, thanks to a cryptocurrency mining app. Yes, the phone is said to be getting an app called DeMiner that will be able to mine cryptocurrency when the phone is plugged in and idle. The app is being developed by Midas Labs and is scheduled to launch every soon. © HTC If you're good at math, then you may have figured out that at that rate, you'll be looking at just over a dollar a year i.e. $1.38 a year. That's like making roughly Rs 100 a year, which means the phone can't even make enough cryptocurrency in over 100 years to pay for its price. And on top of that, you're looking at additional expenses like electricity costs and more. Even if you're planning to buy it to use a phone that can also mine cryptocurrency while it's charging, we still think it's a bad idea. It's definitely not worth the asking price and it's probably not going to last long enough with those basic entry-level specs. This is just to tell you how bad the phone really is and we're yet to have seen anything useful from the folks over at HTC. Source: TheVerge View the full article
  12. Ruthless leaders have always existed in History books, but the brutality inflicted by these leaders on humanity has led to insurmountable losses. However, it can't be denied that despite wreaking havoc of biblical proportions, they still had followers who supported them through their tyrannical reign. Here are the 6 most brutal leaders in modern history. 1. Adolf Hitler (1889-1945) © Wikimedia Hitler was the chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945 and Führer of the Nazi Party. He was possibly the most creative and brutal dictator at the same time. He was responsible for the holocaust and the Second World War. He believed that Jews were the root cause of all evil in society and needed to be eliminated. Under his rule, almost 50 million people died. His reign ended when he committed suicide in his bunker on 30th April 1945. 2. Joseph Stalin (1878-1953) © Wikimedia Iosif Vissarionovich Stalin was the dictator of the Soviet Union from 1922 till his death in 1953. Young Stalin was a robber and an assassin before he became a leader. When he came to power, his reign of terror and violence in the Soviet Union lasted almost 30 years. His ruthless decisions led to a famine that killed millions. For bizarre reasons, he even killed families of people who were fond of him. Under his rule, more than 1.5 million German women were raped and it is believed, that he killed over 20 million people. Ironically, he was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize in 1945 & 1948. He died of a stroke in 1953. 3. Pol Pot (1925-1998) © Wikimedia Pol Pot was the leader of the Cambodian revolutionary group the Khmer Rogue, which had orchestrated the Cambodian genocide. Pol Pot wanted to destroy the Cambodian civilisation in order to start a new regime. He is probably the only man in history who carried out a mass genocide in his own country. During his reign as Prime Minister from 1976 to 1979, his policies led to the death of approximately 2 million people which was 25% of the entire population. He liked to keep the skulls of people he had killed and he went as far as ordering babies to be torn limb by limb. He died of natural causes. 4. Heinrich Himmler (1900-1945) © Wikimedia He was the leader of the Nazi Party in Germany was behind the Final Solution and extermination of all Jews in Europe. Himmler had ordered the killing of about 6 million Jews, 2 to 5 lakh Russians and many other groups that the Nazis believed were unworthy of living. It is believed, not verified, that he had furniture made from the bones and skins of Jewish victims. He committed suicide in the end and is buried at an undisclosed location. 5. Saddam Hussein (1937-2006) © Wikimedia Saddam Hussein was the dictator of Iraq from 1979 to 2003. During his reign, he authorised countless attacks on people. His policies led to the death of not less than 2 million people. He ordered chemical attacks, eye-gougings, beatings, and severe brutal attacks on people. He also recorded several tortures and deaths to watch later for sadistic pleasure. Saddam was found guilty of crimes against humanity and hanged in 2006. His hanging was broadly telecasted as well. 6. Idi Amin (1952-2003) © Wikimedia Idi Amin was a self-declared President of Uganda. As dictator, he came to be known as the 'Butcher of Uganda'. He killed people by feeding them to crocodiles, claimed he was a cannibal, mutilated one of his wives, and rearranged her limbs. He killed and tortured about half a million Ugandans between 1971 to 1979. He died of natural causes. View the full article

  14. Last week, Mukesh Ambani and Mark Zuckerberg were trending because of the JioMart-WhatsApp partnership. In case you missed the whole conversation around JioMart, then you can click here to learn everything that you need to know about it. Now, it looks like JioMart is up and running and users can now place orders on JioMart for groceries via WhatsApp. Users in Navi Mumbai, Thane, and Kalyan, three sub-urban areas of Mumbai can now use JioMart's WhatsApp business account for shopping. © Mensxp jiomart So this particular service is entirely based on the 'WhatsApp For Business' feature. We're not sure when the JioMart service will be made available in other markets, but if you live in one of the three suburban areas mentioned above, then here's how you can use JioMart and place an order for groceries - You can initiate an order by texting "Hi" to +91-8850008000 on WhatsApp. Now save this number as âJioMartâ on your phone, and start a new conversation. Once done, you'll get a link that opens a mini-store on the browser. © Reuters From there, you'll be able to select the items you want and add them to your cart. We were able to see all day-to-day essentials from toothpaste, snacks, tea, rice, oil, and more. And once you place the order, JioMart will automatically assign a neighbourhood store and send an invoice through WhatsApp. It looks like there's no way to make the payment online right now, so you'll have to coordinate with your delivery agent to figure out the process. But apart from that, there shouldn't be any other issues. Jio is promising a 48-hours delivery for now, which is great. View the full article
  15. Earlier this week, we saw the Kirana stores getting a huge push with Jio's upcoming JioMart service. It'll be interesting to see how Jio and WhatsApp manage to pull everything together and help out these retail stores. But in the meantime, the government wants to step in and help out the millions of Kirana stores in the country. The Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT) along with traders body Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) is now inviting applications from Indian startups to help them. These applications are for developing solutions that can help the local shops take online orders and ensure contactless delivery. © Reuters This development is pretty interesting and it comes hot on the heels of the central government allowing e-commerce companies like Amazon and Flipkart to resume normal operations from April 20. That obviously, isn't happening, so we'll see if this application helps out. So, essentially, the DPIIT is looking for e-commerce solutions integrated with messaging platforms, logistics solutions, payment gateway, and everything. We're looking at a one-stop solution for all things online so they can get back up and running. © Reuters If you have a startup of your own or in case you know people who can put this thing together, then you can extend your help by making people aware of this. It's a kickass initiative, and we hope it reaches as many as it can so there's a solution in place at the earliest. Source: Startupindia View the full article
  16. Amid the Coronavirus crisis, where we're still under a nationwide lockdown, TV channels that were previously not doing so well have started getting all-time high ratings. This is also courtesy of the introduction of classics like Ramayan and Shaktimaan on DD National that are being re-aired to keep people entertained in their homes. The mythological series originally aired during 1987-1988 and became a household staple. An adaptation of Valmikiâs Ramayan and Tulsidasâ Ramcharitmanas, the show quickly became a classic that went on to be re-aired multiple times over the years. Now that Ramayan is on our televisions again, here's what the cast is up to these days: 1. Arun Govil as Lord Rama © BCCL Deepika started her career with Hindi film, Sun Meri Laila (1983) and worked opposite stars like RajeshâKhanna, but became truly popular after she played Sita in Ramanand Sagarâs serial.

He was the younger brother of Ram and the son of King Dasharath. He accompanied Ram and Sita when they were exiled. © BCCL Arvind Trivedi played the role of Ravan, who ruled Lanka and is known to have abducted Sita. © BCCL Padma Khanna played the role of Kaikeyi in DD National's Ramayana.

  18. Update: An earlier version of the article reported that the government of India had launched this app. The information turned out to be incorrect and we apologize for any inconvenience caused. Recently, the government deemed the highly popular 'Zoom' app as 'unsafe' for video calling purposes. The app seems to be facing a lot of security issues, making it potentially dangerous for business purposes and for holding some confidential meetings. Even companies like Google, SpaceX and even some schools have stopped using it due to the same reason. More recently, a new piece of information started making rounds on the internet claiming that the Government has already launched a new video calling app called 'Namaste' as an alternate to the 'Zoom' app. It started making waves around the internet, however, the Government came up with a clarification saying that it's a fake news and no such app has been launched. Here, check it out - View this post on Instagram A post shared by MyGov, Government of India (@mygovindia) on Apr 21, 2020 at 12:59am PDT We're not entirely sure about the source of this fake news, but you might want to let people know about it since the app is currently trending across the social media. But if you're still interested to know exactly how the app works, here's everything that you need to know - © Namaste Yes, the app is already available to use, however, it's still in beta so you may expect some bugs in its current state. It's only available on the web for now and it'll eventually be available for mobile phones as an app as well. Currently, the website for 'Namaste' reads: "We are facing tremendous demand for NAMASTE and hence you may face some temporary connectivity issues. Please check back soon". In case you're wondering, the app has been created by a Mumbai-based web application and software development company called Inscripts. We faced some hiccups, but we managed to use it to see if it's any good. Here are some thoughts - © Namaste So, as soon as you visit the website, you'll see an option to either create a new meeting or join an existing one. Once you start a new meeting, you'll be asked to allow permission to access your microphone and camera. Once you do that, you'll see a pop-up with the meeting details that you need to share with others so they can join. It's very similar to how you'd invite someone on, say, a 'Google Meet' or a 'WebX' call. The pop-up will have details like the meeting URL, a meeting ID, and code. Anyone with these credentials will be able to join your meeting. Despite the connectivity issues, which we think is due to the sudden spike in usage, it worked just fine. We expect it to get better over time. As of now, there's no word on a date for when the app will get out of beta or when the apps for Android and iOS will be made available. Note: Since we're not sure about the integrity of this app, we suggest you stay away from this, at least for now. View the full article
  19. Ajaz Khan has, unfortunately, become a synonym to controversies, as time and again he is in the limelight for all the wrong reasons. Well, we know for a fact that Ajaz can create controversy even if there's none, not only from his Bigg Boss record, but his other antics too that get people talking without a doubt. From posting objectionable videos to possessing drugs, he has time and again faced legal action. Yesterday, he was arrested and he is trending at the top on all the news channels and digital platforms.

Disgusting politics over poor people , शरम A post shared by Ajaz Khan (@imajazkhan) on Apr 14, 2020 at 9:23pm PDT It's not the first time that he has been trending for all the wrong reasons. Let's take a look at the five times he proved that he is the 'Badshah' of controversies. 1. Arrested By Mumbai Police For Spreading Communal Hate Amid The Coronavirus Pandemic Ajaz Khan is back in the news because he has been arrested for spreading hate, using religion as a weapon, on his social media platforms. He has been arrested for promoting enmity between two groups and for waging 'war against the country'. Khar police booked him under sections 153A (Promoting enmity between different groups), 121 (Waging, or attempting to wage war, or abetting waging of war, against the Government of India), 117 (Abetting commission of an offence by the public or by more than ten persons), 188 (Disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant), 501 (Printing or engraving matter known to be defamatory), 504 (Intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace) and 505(2) (Statements creating or promoting enmity, hatred or ill will between classes) of the Indian Penal Code. But his fans on Twitter have started trending #ReleaseAjazKhan and have flooded the social media platform with their tweets. Just because of this he was arrested !! No hide and seek . Every one telling this and I am also telling that all hates were spreaded by Godi Media and some bhakts . #ReleaseAjazKhan pic.twitter.com/FkSUizG3XF — Luqman Hussain(Stay home & Save lives) (@Husain_crazyboy) April 18, 2020 à¤à¤ @AjazkhanActor à¤à¥ à¤à¤¿à¤°à¤«à¥à¤¤à¤¾à¤° à¤à¤° लिया à¤à¤¯à¤¾ à¤à¥à¤¯à¥ à¤à¥ à¤à¤¨à¥à¤¹à¥à¤à¤¨à¥ सà¤à¤à¥à¤¯à¥ à¤à¥ à¤à¤¿à¤²à¤¾à¤« à¤à¤µà¤¾à¤ à¤à¤ ाठथॠà¤à¤¬ दà¥à¤¶ मà¥à¤ सठबà¥à¤²à¤¨à¥ à¤à¥ à¤à¤à¤¾à¤¦à¥ नहॠरहॠà¤à¤ à¤à¤¨ लà¥à¤à¥à¤ पर à¤à¤¾à¤°à¥à¤¯à¤µà¤¾à¤¹à¥ नहॠहà¥à¤¤à¥ à¤à¥ नफरत à¤à¥ भाषा बà¥à¤²à¤¤à¥ हà¥à¥¤ à¤à¤¾à¤¨à¥à¤¨ à¤à¤° मिडिया à¤à¤¾ à¤à¤¾à¤°à¤à¥à¤ मà¥à¤¸à¤²à¤®à¤¾à¤¨ हॠà¤à¥à¤¯à¥ हà¥à¤¤à¤¾ हà¥?#ReleaseAjazKhan पर à¤à¥à¤µà¥à¤ à¤à¥à¤à¤¿à¤ या RT — Imran Malik (@Imranmalikma) April 19, 2020 यॠवहॠ#Ajazkhan हॠà¤à¥ हर तरà¥à¤à¥ सॠà¤à¤°à¥à¤¬ लà¥à¤à¥ à¤à¥ मदद à¤à¤°à¤¤à¤¾ हॠà¤à¤° वॠभॠबिना मà¤à¤¹à¤¬ दà¥à¤à¥ !#ReleaseAjazKhan — à¤à¤¾à¤à¤¦à¤¨à¥ à¤à¤¾à¤¨ (@beingchandnikha) April 19, 2020 Please trend #ReleaseAjazKhan, @AjazkhanActor is a man with a golden heart.

Booked For The Possession Of Banned Drugs In 2018, the infamous actor was sent to custody for allegedly possessing eight tablets of Ecstasy, a banned drug. Obviously, he had denied committing any crime and alleged that it was part of a conspiracy. "Based on specific information, the 38-year-old actor was arrested from the room of a hotel in Belapur. Khan, a resident of Andheri in Mumbai, was possessing tablets of 'Ecstasy', a narcotic drug," Deputy Commissioner of Police (Crime) Tushar Doshi, had earlier said. 3. Assaulted A Model By Sending Obscene Photographs Back in 2016, he was arrested for sending obscene photographs to a 25-year-old model on WhatsApp. He was arrested under Section 509 (word, gesture, act to outrage modesty of women) and Section 504 (intentional insult) of the Indian Penal Code and Information Technology Act. The model had said in her FIR that Khan invited her to a hotel in Juhu and sent an obscene photograph to her. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Ajaz Khan (@imajazkhan) on Apr 13, 2020 at 12:08pm PDT 4. His Infamous TikTok Video It seems like Khan always wants to be in the limelight for all sorts of wrong reasons. Last year, he was sent to custody for 14 days for spreading communal hate on TikTok. In one of the videos, he had mocked Mumbai Police for filing FIR against TikTok stars for posting threatening and outrageous video as revenge for Tabrej Ansari's death. In the video, the stars were seen saying, “You may have killed that innocent Tabrez Ansari, but tomorrow if his son takes revenge, do not say that all Muslims are terrorists.” Its official Ajaz Khan is arrested by Cyber Cell Dept of @MumbaiPolice I thank @MumbaiPolice and @CPMumbaiPolice for arresting this hate monger Jai Hind ð®ð³ Jai Sri Ram @narendramodi @AUThackeray @AmitShah @Dev_Fadnavis @TigerRajaSingh @ippatel @TajinderBagga @MODIfiedVikas — Ramesh Solanki (@Rajput_Ramesh) July 18, 2019 5. Thrashed A Male Model Last year, an FIR was registered against him for thrashing a male model and the organiser of a fashion show in Mumbai. Well, I have been wondering how difficult it is to stay away from controversies and lead a simpler life. Ajaz Khan has some sort of strange connection with controversies, doesn't he?

  20. With the ongoing national lockdown amid the coronavirus crises, people are finding new and creative ways to pass time in self-isolation at home. Since the 21-day lockdown was recently extended till May 3, more and more people are resorting to home delivery services to order things online instead of stepping out. © istock Major cities that have been using Dunzo during the lockdown including Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Gurugram, and Pune.

  21. Apple's highly-anticipated affordable iPhone SE 2020 model is finally here. In India, the phone will cost you Rs 42,500, which isn't all that much for the kind of hardware your getting for that price. And now that the new iPhone SE is here, should you really care about the iPhone XR anymore? Well, let's find out - DesignYes, the new iPhone SE looks like the iPhone 8. It has the same design with huge bezels on the top and bottom of the screen and the TouchID sensor. You also get a single camera at the back, so nothing new there too. It's got a very basic design with a compact form factor. If you are expecting anything new here, then you'll be disappointed because the new iPhone SE is essentially just the iPhone 8 with new internals. © YouTube/Apple So, is TouchID better than FaceID? Well, both of them are quite advanced and work flawlessly in our opinion. While some people prefer the new FaceID tech, we're sure a lot of people would love to go back to the TouchID sensor. It's again a personal preference. The Final SayOverall, we think the new iPhone SE is indeed a great phone. We're looking at a super-compact phone with new internals to match the current-gen iPhones. So it's perfect for people who wanted a powerful iPhone but with an affordable price tag and a compact form factor. But if you can't stand the huge bezels and want the FaceID tech instead of TouchID, the iPhone XR is a great option too. It doesn't have the latest chipset, but it's still a really powerful device.

  22. Quarantine Blues â thatâs a real emotion weâve all been feeling. While some of you are dealing with it by engrossing yourself in reading and cooking, weâve resorted to binge-watching. After spending the good part of the month catching up on the latest shows, we decided to take a break from cliché trends and beat the quarantine blues with a gripping underworld saga Ek Thi Begum on MX Player. Another MX Original to capture our attention, EK Thi Begum is a scorned womanâs tale of revenge and betrayal. And oh boy, this begum doesnât disappoint. The show stars actress Anuja Sathe as Begum Ashraf Bhatkar aka Sapna, while her husband Zaheer is played by Ankit Mohan. The most sought-after underworld kingpin, Maqsood, is played by actor Ajay Gehi. MX Player The Bombay You Never KnewMost of us millennials will never relate to the old stories of crime and fear that gripped Mumbai (Bombay then) during the 1980s. Underworld gangs, smugglers and gang wars â it was a time when organised crime was at its peak. The underground city of crime boasted of names that were feared even by the most powerful of men. Ek Thi Begum takes off with this narrative and gives us an insight into the Bombay we never knew. It gives us the grimmest antagonist Maqsood. MX Player Hell Hath No Fury Like A Woman ScornedAt a time when the underground city of crime was largely dominated by men, Begum Ashraf Bhatkar aka Sapna foils a plan of death and disruption to avenge her husbandâs death. The man responsible, Maqsood, is not an easy target, but Begum Ashraf is a woman on a mission. She rises above her sorrows and her struggles to become the Mafia Queen of her time. Begum Ashraf is ruthless, she is gutsy and she will not stop until she has reached the top. Actress Anuja Sathe has captured the wide range of emotions in this show with finesse. This gripping revenge saga is inspired by true events and if that doesn't get you intrigued nothing else will. A Bilingual Ensemble Cast Like No OtherEk Thi Begum is available for streaming in Hindi as well as Marathi. And the robust ensemble cast includes names like Ankit Mohan, Chinmay Mandlekar, Rajendra Shisatkar, Resham, Abhijeet Chavan, Pradip Doiphode, Vithal Kale, Nazarr Khan, Vijay Nikam, Anil Nagarkar, Suchit Jadhav, Raju Aathavale and Santosh Juvekaramongst others in pivotal roles. This 14-episodic series is created, written and directed by Sachin Darekar. A Free IndulgenceThe best thing about binging yet another show on MX Player is that it doesnât cost you a penny. With no subscription fees, you can start binging Ek Thi Begum and several other shows for free here. After finishing Ek Thi Begum in one long binge-marathon, we are now looking for more quarantine binge-watches. Do leave us your quarantine-approved recommendations in the comments section below.

  23. Every successful actor needs a smart makeup artist who is good at blurring out imperfections for shirtless/ naked scenes on screen. This, apart from all the working out is what makes them attractive on-screen. For Brad Pitt, it has always been Jean Ann Black, his make-up artist. In fact, when push came to shove, she even went ahead and colour corrected Brad Pitt's bum for a scene requirement on the sets of The Legends Of The Fall. © Reuters Considering Jean is like a 'sister' to Brad, imagine how awkward these bum colour correcting sessions maybe. The remodeling of the space, meanwhile, was a total surprise and was carried out when she was out of town for three weeks straight. The Scott brothers began remodeling her stand-alone garage in Santa Monica into a guest suite complete with bedroom, kitchen, and bathroom, as well as a make-up studio and storage unit, and Brad Pitt was happy to help make the project successful.

  25. Soaring past 5,000 confirmed cases this week, the general population is unable to do much more than practice social distancing, a move thatâs grown all too familiar as we approach week three of Indiaâs lockdown phase. With feelings of helplessness rising, what exactly is it that we can do? The answer to this question lies in plain sight, and for most of us, right in front of our faces - the mass utilisation and continued use of face masks, through the lockdown and beyond. While many of us are fortunate enough to have stockpiled on manufactured facemasks, a vast population of Indians cannot afford them and given the shortage of equipment faced by medical authorities, perhaps a more hands-on approach will do the trick. Why Wear Masks? © Reuters; Even dogs are taking on the spirit of medical safety. What India currently needs is a logistics-friendly, cost-effective, instantly doable and medically sound approach to preventing coronavirus spread. In no way is this currently more feasible than introducing and promoting the usage of Do-It-Yourself (DIY) facemasks. While sophisticated N95 masks provide the highest available form of protection, even basic masks can help in lowering rates of transmission, therefore saving potential lives. According to Ben Cowling, a Hong Kong professor of epidemiology associated with the World Health Organisation (WHO), "The argument ... about everybody wearing a mask, is not that it will prevent everyone from getting infected, it's that it will slow down transmission.â What Do You Need To Make A DIY Mask? © Reuters; Stay informed and educated - donât be this guy. Since you will need to make at least two masks (after use, facemasks need to be either disposed of or cleaned thoroughly to prevent exposure risk), itâs important to consider which kind of mask youâd like to make - weâve got two levels that you can try, depending on your supplies and comfort with tailoring. T-Shirt Cloth Mask/Bandana MaskNo sewing required - absolutely beginner friendly.Requires a pair of scissors.A disposable T-Shirt/bandana.Rubber bands or hair ties.Sewn Cloth FacemaskWill require sewing skills, but is more sturdy and customisable.Two 10â x 6â rectangles of cotton fabric.Two 6â pieces of elastic or cloth strips.Needle & thread.Scissors.A sewing machine.How To Craft Your DIY MaskT-Shirt Cloth Mask © BCCL Simple and easy to make, this can also help you find a use for old t-shirts and embrace sustainability during these trying times as well. Bandana Mask © BCCL If youâre uncomfortable working with scissors and cloth, this one turns out to be even easier than the t-shirt option and can be quickly crafted in a matter of seconds. Sewn Cloth Facemask While requiring a person with basic sewing skills to make, this mask is a great way to learn if youâve got someone to help you around at home - you can even use prints or colours you personally enjoy to create these handy reusable masks. Creating your mask is just the first step, however. In order to maximise your safety and the longevity of the mask, the following steps are important too: Before using a mask, remember to wash your hands - thatâs even more crucial for virus protection.Never share your mask with others - each person must have their own pair.After your mask becomes damp, humid or unclean, it must be washed immediately to be of use again. This is ideally done with a thorough soap wash before leaving the mask to dry under sunlight for 5 hours.Alternatively, you can boil the mask in salt water for 10-15 minutes.Keep your mask in a clean, dry and safe place, such as a thoroughly washed plastic bag or container.Spearheaded by The Times of India, #MaskIndia is an online effort to spread awareness by educating India about the benefits of homemade masks with the goal of ultimately safeguarding every Indian against COVID-19. Share a picture with your homemade mask on your social handles using #MaskIndia. The best picture will be featured in The Times Of India, and on MaskIndia.com. View the full article
