  1. The town is one of the key urban outposts that Ukraine recaptured in the northeastern Kharkiv region in early September
  2. When Suresh Raina announced his international retirement after MS Dhoni on Aug 15 2020, he thought he would play in the Indian Premier League (IPL) for at least three-four years before calling it quits one last time. His international retirement at the age of 33 had shocked everyone but then people understood the rationale behind his decision. He hadn’t worn the India jersey in the last two years and given the intense competition, he wasn’t expected to make a comeback to the Indian team. © Twitter/IPL Two years down the line and the 35-year-old cricketer is left with nowhere to play. After being snubbed by CSK in the IPL 2022 mega auction, Raina, all of sudden, finds himself in a precarious situation. Raina has stopped playing domestic cricket for his state Uttar Pradesh and his sole focus was on representing Chennai Super Kings (CSK) for the next few years but after the recent snub he has nowhere to go. © Twitter/IPL Having already called time on his international career, there was no point grinding out in four-day cricket. He left that spot for a young deserving cricketer who needs it more than him. Many believed the reason why CSK decided not to pick their former talisman was because of his old age and declining form. They felt he wouldn’t fit in their scheme of things going forward. © Twitter/IPL Now, we have seen CSK taking a punt on much older players. Imran Tahir who was part of their setup till last year was 41. Their current skipper MS Dhoni, aged 40, is one of the oldest players in the league. So, this argument of old age is nothing but an excuse. As far as poor form is concerned, the BCCI is equally at fault as much as Raina. How, you ask? © Twitter/IPL Well, the richest cricket board in the country, for some reason, doesn’t allow its male cricketers, who are members of one of its state units, to participate in franchise cricket elsewhere. But it expects every other cricket board to send their players to participate in its cash-rich league. Now that’s called hypocrisy. © Twitter/IPL Now, one may ask what has Raina’s form anything to do with this policy. Since Raina doesn’t play domestic cricket anymore, this arbitrary regulation prohibits him from featuring in any other league. Not just Raina, several other former cricketers Irfan Pathan and Yusuf Pathan to name a few, have also objected to BCCI’s this regulation in the past. They were out of the Indian team but were never allowed to participate in any T20 league on foreign soil. © Twitter/IPL Recently, an old video of Raina has gone viral online where he can be seen urging the BCCI to make a framework to allow the Indian players to play in overseas leagues. The video is from an Instagram live session from 2020 where he interacted with Pathan brothers and shared his views on this matter. This was before the southpaw announced his international retirement. Please @ImRo45 consider #SureshRaina for #MumbaiIndians team.#Boycott_ChennaiSuperKings pic.twitter.com/yiCiZX0gbc — Jyoti Suman (@Jas23478675) February 15, 2022 Raina also clarified that the reason why players want to play in those leagues was not to earn money but to get the game quality practice, competing against some of the best names in world cricket. “I wish BCCI plans something with ICC or the franchises so that Indian players get to play foreign leagues. At least allow us to play in two different foreign leagues. If we play quality cricket in terms of foreign leagues, then it would be good for us. All international players make a comeback by playing in all those leagues,” Raina had told Yusuf Pathan during an Instagram Live session. © Twitter/IPL Back then Raina had an IPL contract and had something to look forward to but after the recent snub at IPL, he is left with no choice but to wait.

  3. For the longest time, I would think that the most bitter people you’d come across in your life, would be your exes. That probably no one else would have so much to comment, complain about or even bitch about than your ex-partner who would be butt-hurt and just finding an outlet for all those mixed emotions. But obviously, I was wrong. Because sometimes, the bitter one is not your ex but everyone else - like the mindless trolls who would come at you for no good reason. © Twitter As has been the case with actress Samantha Ruth Prabhu, who, ever since her split with actor Naga Chaitanya, has been at the brunt of public scrutiny and the butt of several distasteful jokes and trolling. Despite the two stars being amicable about the divorce, trolls have been relentless at blaming Samantha and pulling her name through the mud. Just like this one user on Twitter who stooped to the level of insinuating Samantha to be a gold-digger. © Twitter He wrote, “@Samanthaprabhu2 is a divorced ruined second-hand item who has 50 crores tax-free money robbed from a gentleman!” Not only was the troll harsh and sticking his nose where it didn't belong, but he was also uninformed because, during the time of settlement of the divorce, the actress straight up refused to take any alimony from Chaitanya or his family. Samantha Ruth Prabhu, who was being offered Rs, 200 crores as alimony said no to the money because she had anyway worked hard to make her way to the top and didn't feel the need to take money from anyone, reports stated. Kamarali Dukandar God bless your soul . https://t.co/IqA1feO9K1 — Samantha (@Samanthaprabhu2) December 21, 2021 The actress still decided to keep her calm and gave it back to the troll but in style. Not indulging in an argument with someone who’s stooped so low, Samantha gracefully moved on by simply writing, “Kamarali Dukandar God bless your soul." Guess that’s what you call killing with kindness! Source: Hindustan Times (https://www.hindustantimes.com/entertainment/telugu-cinema/samantha-ruth-prabhu-replies-to-twitter-user-who-trolled-her-about-divorce-said-she-robbed-rs-50-crore-101640094836583.html) View the full article
  4. The Aryan Khan drug case has really all the signs of being a plot for a Bollywood blockbuster film. There is clearly a star name involved in it. There is reported to be a lot of money involved. And, there are new allegations almost every day in the news. © BCCL While Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan does everything in his power to keep his silence over everything that has been going on, there are other parties that are clearly not very good at keeping quiet. Or at least they don't want to, for sure. A lot, I mean, seriously, a lot has been said and written in the case, and adding more fuel to the fire, NCP leader Nawab Malik has said even more things about Sameer Wankhede, the NCB Chief at the helm of the cruise ship drug bust. © Twitter © Twitter Wankhede has been accused of being involved in a plan to extort money out of Shah Rukh Khan in connection with the Aryan Khan drug case and his release before bail. It had been reported that SRK's manager Pooja Dadlani had allegedly almost struck a Rs 50 lakh deal to save Aryan from getting arrested, however that resulted in a failure. According to a new statement from Malik, however, it was Wankhede who was actually involved in an even bigger deal. As per him, in a deal worth Rs 50 crore, around Rs 8 crore was supposed to go to Wankhede. “I’m making the statement with full responsibility. Wankhede was part of the plot in collaboration with Bharatiya, who is part of Wankhede’s private army. Initially, the deal was fixed for Rs 25 crore, later after negotiations, it was reduced to Rs 18 crore, while Rs 50 lakh was already given." said Malik. However, Malik said that the entire plan went for a toss when Kiran Gosavi, who fled after Aryan's arrest, clicked that viral selfie with Aryan Khan. © Twitter "Unfortunately, the deal didn’t work out owing to main witness Kiran Gosavi’s selfie with Aryan, which went viral,” he said. Nawab has been maintaining for long that Aryan was actually framed in the case, however, only time will tell what exactly happened. View the full article
  5. Be it the idea of love, the happily-ever-after-endings, or just life in general, Bollywood movies have this unforgivable habit of showing things that are far too dreamy and unreal. © Dharma Productions Now, while I admit that we all love to watch it, one thing that I think we will never be able to forgive Bollywood for is how they literally ruined the idea of what college life was supposed to be. Be it fashion, flashy fast cars, big social circles, endless parties, and exotic campus festivals that would put a Coldplay concert to shame, Bollywood fed us all these dreams, and we innocently gulped it all down. © Dharma Productions When most of us actually went to college, we realized ki, "Life Sach Me Fair Nahi Hai Yaar", and we have only these Bollywood movies to blame for that. 1. Main Hoon Na © Red Chillies Entertainment Remember St. Pauls College? The scenic, hillside college jaha pe the long-haired Lucky urf Laxman Prasad Sharma (Zayed Khan) ended up failing three years in a row only to still get the girl at the end and even find out that he has Shah Rukh Khan for a step-brother. Well, before you start throwing tomatoes at me, I consider it to be one of the best Shah Rukh Khan movies as it is a complete entertainment package. However, Prom Night? a funky college principal who liked reading Harry Potter in his office? and Sushmita freaking Sen as a Chemistry professor? That is remotely nothing close to a real-life college in India. © Red Chillies Entertainment And you know what? The college in the movie is actually an all-boys school in Darjeeling. © St. Pauls School 2. Ishq Vishk © Tips Industries This movie may be remembered by many for all the good reasons, with Shahid Kapoor's debut being one of them. But while the love-triangle rom-com drama film was a superb dose of fun, with a stellar cast of Shahid, Amrita Rao, Shenaz Treasury, Vishal Malhotra, and Satish Shah, the fact remains that college life is not all of that. Be it the colourful college canteens, inter-college IIFA Award-like festivals, or the fact that you get to have multiple romances during your three-year term within the college walls, Bro! Real-life colleges Aise Definitely Nahi Hote! 3. Kuch Kuch Hota Hai © Dharma Productions This movie is one of most people's all-time favourites, and one of Karan Johar's actual masterpiece drama films. However, Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol, and Rani Mukherjee with all their skateboards, basketball games, and fancy friendship days fooled us into believing that college would be anything as colourful as that. Well, while watching more KJo films over the recent course of years made getting back to reality a little bit easier, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai came in when we were far too young. All of us would still want to visit that Shimla-wala Summer Camp still! (We're never getting older) 4. Student of the Year © Dharma Productions If there was ever a clear difference between fiction and reality, well, this movie was the best example of it. Be it Ishk Wala Love or Gucci-wearing college students, Student of the Year might have made the magical school of Harry Potter's Hogwarts seem more realistic. Olympic-styled swimming pools, students vacationing abroad on private jets, the movie forgot to hold any slight resemblances to how schools or colleges are in India. Guess they tried centring things on the Upper East Side of New York? (Gossip Girl fans? No? Damn!) 5. Mohabbatein © YRF Like Student Of The Year, I think there is still confusion about whether the Gurukul in Mohabattein was a strange boarding school or college. Well, keeping in mind the fact that the trio of Uday Chopra, Jimmy Shergill, and Jugal Hansraj were all in their mid-twenties, we'd like to believe it was a college indeed. Now, while the movie was a successful and memorable remake of Robin William's Dead Poet's Society, the truth is that no college or school in India looks like the Gurukul. I mean, just look at this place. © YRF Even if we overlook this, what about Shah Rukh is the only teacher/professor seen in the film? Also, apart from imparting love-life advice, I never saw him teach one note or chord of an instrument to any of the students. No wonder Big Bachchan was always furious with him in the movie!

  6. 11 Years ago, on this very day, two cricketing giants of Asia clashed to score the second most number of runs in the history of ODI cricket. The first of a five-match 50 over series which took place in Rajkot, had India and Sri Lanka play out an epic high-scoring game of cricket in which both sides managed to score over 400 runs in a total of 100 overs shared between them and with the hosts narrowly escaping with a victory with just a three-run margin. #OnThisDay in 2009, Sehwag's 102 ball 146 guided @BCCI to a 4 run victory over Sri Lanka. Both teams scored over 400 runs. #Cricket pic.twitter.com/uZ3faf6nOz — SportsNow India (@SportsNowIndia) December 15, 2016 Indian opener, Virender Sehwag was quick to catch fire and in his typical play-style started swinging for the fences early and ended up smashing 146 runs off just 102 deliveries which included 17 fours and six sixes. His efforts were supported by Sachin Tendulkar’s 69 and skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni 72 with additional help from a very young Virat Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja late in the batting lineup. So Close Yet So Far Today in 2009 chasing India's 414, Sri Lanka lost the match by just 3 runs IND 414/7 (Sehwag 146) SL 411/8 (Dilshan 160 pic.twitter.com/uQrPeyJMik — Cricketopia (@CricketopiaCom) December 15, 2016 India mounted a massive total of 414 runs for the Lankan lions to match up to in 300 legal deliveries. However, Sehwag’s work of art on the pitch was nearly undone by a confident Sri Lankan batting roster led by an even impressive batting feat by Tillakaratne Dilshan who ended up scoring 160 runs off 124 deliveries while sending the ball for the ropes a total of 23 times. His captain, Kumar Sangakkara also became a huge challenge for the Men in Blue to get rid of as his fierce batting got him to 90 in just 43 deliveries before pacer Praveen Kumar got him to loft a catch into Jadeja’s hands in the 37th over. It won’t be outrageous to think that had Sangakkara’s wicket not fallen, the outcome of the match could have been very different as a relentless Dilshan helped Sri Lanka reach the 411-run mark in 50 overs, a few inches short of what could have been the most impressive victory in the history of the team’s history. View this post on Instagram Despite Dilshan’s commendable push, it was Virender Sehwag’s 146 that earned him the ‘Player of the Match’ recognition after India won the first match. The Men in Blue would go on to win the series 3-1. View the full article
  7. If there was a show that revolutionised cartoons for kids back in the day, it was Pokemon. Sure other shows like Tom & Jerry, Dexter’s Laboratory and Scooby Doo were all great too but for a cartoon to have kids so invested in it that they’d literally buy countless cards and exchange with each other, it definitely had an impact on a whole new level. And yet, the show could not resist the urge to slip in numerous jokes and innuendos too “matured” for the majority of their audience to understand. It is now however that an entire generation of Pokemon viewers have grown into adults and realising what they were exposed to in their childhood. Here are five times Pokemon made ‘jokes’ only adults could understand: 1. Brock’s Jail Baiting Comment © The Pokemon Company Now if you’ve been watching the show since the first episode, you’d know how girl-crazy Brock really is but normally, he’d be hitting on adults like Nurse Joy and Officer Jenny. Episode The Double Trouble Header however shows Brock thinking out loud about a young trainer named Casey. In that he says “She'll be fun in eight years." That just took a really dark turn really quickly. 2. Ash Working In French Hooters © The Pokemon Company If you don’t know anything about Hooters, it is a restaurant chain infamous for hiring only attractive young female staff who wear orange shorts and a low-cut vest top as a uniform. In the episode Tanks for the Memories, Dawn and Ash dress up as French maids to work in a local cafe nearby. The reference becomes a lot more prominent when a bunch of male customers “are back” but run away instantly as they see a guy in a maid’s costume. 3. Team Rocket Has STD… Probably? © The Pokemon Company Two of the most known members of Team Rocket namely Jessie and James have been known for sharing an unusual relationship. They are supposed to be colleagues who are bad guys but in numerous episodes they have been shown to be great friends too. Episode Hassle in the Castle however blurs the line between their personal and professional lives a bit too much but even has them share a common STD… possibly. The infamous duo barge into a doctor’s clinic and demand treatment for their itchy bits in the typical rhyming monologuing fashion. 4. WTF Ampharos via GIPHY Episode The Light of Floccesy Ranch shows an Ampharos trying to get the attention of a bunch of Mareeps (sheep pokemon) but the way he does it… is definitely not for the kids to see. Let’s just say “sheepy-style” should not be shown on a children’s cartoon show. 5. James’ Inflatable Chest © The Pokemon Company Much like a lot of other cartoons, there are some episodes from the Pokemon show that didn’t get the approval of being telecast or were aired only once. One such episode was titled Beauty and the Beach in which Misty enters a beauty pageant but finds out that both members of Team Rocket are in it as well. James, in a bikini as well, uses an inflatable chest and pumps some extra air in it to win the pageant. There are some not-so-decent gestures being made as well during the scene which certainly shows why the episode was problematic and needed to undergo massive editing before being released.

  8. It's heartbreaking to see kids work so hard for their entrance exams only to not get the score they wanted. It's even sadder when kids start to doubt themselves when it wasn't even their fault, and it was just a technical screw up that made them fail a test they were actually scoring really well on. That's exactly what happened to Mridul Rawat, a 17-year-old from Rajasthan, who ended up virtually failing the NEET 2020 exam after he got back his result. On October 16th, he got the result that said he had gotten 329 marks out of the maximum marks of 720. © Twitter He was, understandably, distraught as he was completely sure that he had cracked the exam and was sure he was scoring 650 marks out of 720 on the basis of the recorded response sheet and answer key of NEET 2020. Talking to HT, he said, "As per my marks in the NTA results, I had virtually failed in NEET 2020 as I would not get any medical college with those marks. I cried and went in depression as I was confident that I will crack NEET with 650 marks but NEET result led to my heartbreak." © Twitter Well, turns out he was right and it was the National Testing Agency (NTA) that had messed up. After challenging the result, he went from basically failing to becoming the All India Topper of Scheduled Tribe category. What a moment, so happy for him! He went on, "My parents motivated me after which I challenged the result sheet before NTA on the basis of his recorded response sheet and answer key. My despair turned into delightful surprise today when NTA today accepted its mistake and released the corrected result sheet in which I got 650 marks and was adjudged All India Topper of NEET 2020 in Scheduled Tribe category." © Twitter He probably started second-guessing himself after the first result and just imagine if the poor kid had not gotten to the bottom of it. He would have ended not getting into the career he wanted to and it would be truly devastating. This was an avoidable mistake, of course, and it's great that Mridul ended up standing up for himself. The lesson here is always believing in yourself, even when someone else accidentally screws you over. View the full article
  9. The pandemic life is becoming the new ‘normal’ and all of us, regardless of our age and occupation, are trying extremely hard to adjust and live a life with this ‘new normal’ tag being attached to everything. Offices are all working from home, school and college students are trying to find their way through online classes, even doctor appointments have gone digital. If you’re a college student who probably was looking forward to heading back to university, making an insane number of plans of upgrading that wardrobe, cajoling your parents into buying you a new phone, I feel the pain of not being able to take that drive everyday. The whole spotting of your crush and smiling, bunking lectures to sip coffee with friends, matching outfits and deciding where to hang out after classes, life is suddenly mundane and no students deserve it. Anyway, here are few movies that can help you catch a ‘vibe’ of college life as you continue attending classes online: 1.Dil Chahta Hai – Trust the classics to always get you in the ‘feel’ of whatever emotion you want to vibe with. DCH is basically history written down in all our hearts. © T-Series From dreaming of wooing a girl at a random bar to planning those innumerable Goa plans with friends, DCH has given everyone a reason to love it. College life is fun if you have memories like these. 2. 3 Idiots- Though it was based on a book and the life lessons learnt in it are a separate topic altogether, lets not forget how nostalgic it made us feel when we watch people running in corridors, bunking lectures or simply ragging each other in the hostel dorm. If college is not opening anytime soon, then this movie will surely make you miss it. 3. Chhichore- Probably the most relatable to all of us in the current scenario. The movie has friends take a trip down the memory lane and reminisce about the good old days of college life , something that we all have been doing at work as we all share memories from college with our colleagues. 4.Dil Dosti Etc- One movie which created some strong ripples when it was released but failed to be a commercial hit. Dil Dosti Etc is a very relatable movie for everyone who’s experienced college life at DU. Student politics, the canteen in colleges, amateur relationships, this movie shows the real scene of how a typical student union ran in a DU college. 5.Ishq Vishk- A very old movie indeed and Shahid’s debut as well. This movie came at a time when most of us were very young, still wondering how college life would be. The whole glitz and glamour of a college festival, the young bubbling romance, cheating in exams, though painted very nicely, this is a good watch for getting that ‘college vibe’. 6.Fukrey- The super hit ‘jodi’ of Chucha and Hunny are basically the kind of ‘friendship goals’ we all aspire to have in life. © Excel Entertainment This is the kind of movie that showcases the array of fun that awaits you when you plan to get into the same college with your best friend from school and weave plans of all the ‘masti’ that awaits you.

  10. Calling Tanishk Bagchi the âBadshahâ of remixes wonât be wrong as he is the one behind taking all the original songs like Tu Cheez Badi or Aankh Marey and making it to something completely different or as we call it in the millennial lingo, âremakesâ. A while ago, he dropped one of his remixes, Masakali 2.0, that features Sidharth Malhotra and Tara Sutaria. While we all loved the Delhi-6 track, we can not say the same about this one because itâs completely ruined and Tanishk has taken away the essence of the original song which we missed in this one. In one of the interviews, Tanishk had said, âI just want them to understand that the original track is still available for them to listen to. People had forgotten Aankh Marey. But today, every club in the country is playing it. I am just bringing back forgotten hits.â Well, I agree with your argument of bringing golden songs back for the millennials to consume, but who has asked you to take away the whole essence of the original one? Also does bringing back forgotten hits include making us forget the original? Donât you think itâs high time for you to leave remixing old songs and give us some original tracks? There are many songs that you have butchered to death but here are 5 songs which we feel were ruined to death by the composer: 1. Masakali 2.0With Masakali 2.0, heâs added all the elements that have ruined the original song for many listeners and we wonât blame them for sticking to the old version. We were happy listening to the original one till you dropped this âbombâ online today. Remixed Version Original Version 2. Mere Angne MeinThis was nothing but a cringe-fest. Did he not take into account that the original track in Amitabh Bachchan's Laawaris has a separate fan following and obviously have emotions connected to it? Probably he ignored it completely because the end result wasnât that pleasing to the ears. Remixed Version Original Version 3. Yaad Piya Ki Aane Lagi I am sure the 90s kids would have loved this Falguni Pathak song because we have dreamt about our first crushes through this song in our school days. So, he conveniently decided to ruin that too for us with the Divya Kumar Khosla version. Remixed Version Original Version 4. O Saki SakiWonder what was he thinking before making this one! Even Nora Fatehiâs sexy moves couldnât help this song from its ultimate doom. It was one of the popular chartbusters, thanks to Sanjay Dutt and Koena Mitra, but he clearly didnât think it can backfire. Remixed Version Original Version 5. The Humma SongFor music lovers, Humma Humma by AR Rahman was one of the cult songs. I remember when the song was released, people were fuming with anger because he ruined that one song which won AR Rahman six national awards. Remixed Version Original Version All things said and done, he should remember that, âjanta maaf nahi karegiâ! View the full article
  11. There is a difference between borrowing an idea and blatantly copying an idea, and sometimes Bollywood goes a notch higher when it takes up an English movie and remakes it with some bad ingredients. Not every copy is a success and here are seven Hindi movies which were poorly copied from Hollywood and then were absolutely ruined for fans. 1. Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi It was a YRF movie with clichéd elements like a big happy family, a pretty looking leading lady, lots of music and fantasy. Yet it failed to match the original spunk of My Best Friend's Wedding as Uday Chopra tried hard to recreate what Julia Roberts' character did in the original. 2. Murder In 2002, the Richard Gere starrer Unfaithful surprised fans with a bold script and really well-twisted plots. Come 2004, the famous Murder series marks its arrival with Emraan Hashmi and Mallika Sherawat in the lead. The one thing that surely worked for this was the kind of boldness that Bollywood was not acquainted with yet, and the great music which made it memorable. Still, it didn't match the original. 3. Deewane Huey Pagal This multi-starrer romantic comedy starring Shahid Kapoor, Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty and Paresh Rawal chasing Rimi Sen as the girl they love was a dud at the box office and was a poor copy of There's Something About Mary which had Cameron Diaz play the woman who was being wooed by her suitors. 4. Main Aisa Hi Hoon A sensitive script lifted from I Am Sam about a doting father with disabilities trying to fight for the custody of his daughter. Ajay Devgn had some powerful scenes but it was nothing compared to the original which had Sean Penn in the lead. 5. God Tussi Great Ho You know a movie is a poor attempt of copying a brilliant script when a star cast of Big B, Salman Khan and Priyanka Chopra can also not save it from drowning. Borrowed completely from Jim Carrey's Bruce Almighty, this one was a major flop. 6. Brothers Except for looking at the great physiques of Sidharth Malhotra and Akshay Kumar fighting it out in the ring, this movie was a lame copy of the original, Warrior, a story about two half brothers turning into mortal enemies in the ring. 7. Kucch To Hai A blatant copy of I Know What You Did Last Summer, this movie saw terrible acting from the leads Tusshar Kapoor and Esha Deol. View the full article
  12. Shehbaz Sharif addressing rally in Khanewal KHANEWAL: Punjab chief minister Shehbaz Sharif slammed opponent leaders Imran Khan and Asif Ali Zardari on Monday, while highlighting the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz?s developmental work across...
  13. PESHAWAR: Pakistan People?s Party (PPP) co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari Thursday said whenever the PML-N came into power, they ruined the country?s economy and brought it on the brink of bankruptcy. Addressing a press conference here, the former president said if the country is weakening economically, then there must have been someone responsible for it. He said his party would create jobs for people if the party was brought to power again by the people. ?Whenever the PPP came to power, it provided jobs to the people, didn?t snatch them.? Commenting on the PTI chairman, Zardari said Imran Khan is lost in his own world and for him Pervez Khattak is the best individual.
  14. Monica Dogra goes by many titles—most of them are self-proclaimed—actress, musician and what-not. But, of all her very inglorious titles, the one that seems the most ludicrous is that of ‘musician'. Then again, those are my personal reservations and one is free to digress on the grounds of creative liberties. You cannot expect a neon signage to resemble a Michelangelo, or even an Andy Warhol. © Facebook/Trupal Pandya To the most, Miss Dogra's music remains largely forgettable. Her last track with any recall value was Shiver, from her album Spit; and that too was only because of its avant-garde theatrics. Lately, she's been in the news yet again; not for her stint as a judge on The Stage Season 3 (I'll come to that questionable bit later, as well); but for her latest single titled ‘Naraye Mastana'. Sounds familiar? Probably because the very soulful original was sung by the timeless Abida Parveen—a Sufi musician who has transcended ages and remains relevant even today. However, Miss Dogra failed to realize who Abida Parveen really was before she was introduced to the song by one of her friends, as she herself admitted on air during an interview on popular radio channel 94.3. Here's the original track by Abida Parveen. And here's Dogra's version of the track. We can leave the concept of music out of it. Revisiting a track, revising it, or remixing it—none of these words do justice to the original track because, let's face it; Abida Parveen's version remains a classic. Sure, Miss Dogra has the creative freedom to interpret music the way she feels makes sense to her own aesthetics. But, I'll say this out and loud—to even try to draw a parallel between her track which is raunchier than it is tasteful, and Parveen's track which is pure soul, is to try to compare legends to street smarts. One simply doesn't do it. © Facebook/Monica Dogra Dogra's video for the track sees her doing what she does best—looking fabulous, giving shots that are worth framing up like a piece of gothic art. But, it's not even music. It's Dogra rapping ‘I drink too much' and alternating between the chorus of the original song with orgasmic breaths in between. Look, I get it. Creative rights and all. What I don't get is this distorted sense of what quantifies as music and what is just a publicity gimmick to get a million hits and downloads online. Dogra's latest efforts are targeting the latter. The problem is our ‘Indie' scene has become a bit of a parody in itself which seems to have lost the plot. We have ‘artists' on the scene who are producing a sad excuse of what they'd like to call their own interpretation of what music is and they all sound the same, do the same thing and harp on the same titles of good looks, money and commercial sell-outs. I'd have honestly liked to have seen a Sona Mohapatra, or a Hari & Sukhmani do a revisit of this track; it would have even kept the very essence and soul of the song intact; or even given it something fresher. What Dogra has done is change the entire track and merely call it a reinterpretation of the original which it clearly isn't. © Nayantara Parikh Photography Honestly, I don't remember when was the last time I heard Monica Dogra actually hold a legitimate tune. Was it for her background score in the Deepika Padukone-Imraan Khan starrer ‘Break Ke Baad'? It was called Dooriyaan Bhi Hai Zaroori and while I don't really count Monica Dogra in the league of breakthrough female singers in the country, this was honestly the closest she came to showcasing her vocal prowess which was still something. From then on, she shifted to the indie vibe and the independent scene; raised some crowd-sourced funds for her album, received some flak for it, and performed at large number of music festivals where she was seen wearing bohemian attire and gyrating to hypnotic music on stage. Monica Dogra is a performer. She is average on screen; but, she's bloody good in her music videos and on stage. She has that element about her—the looks, the moves, the attitude. She flaunts it too. But, she's also what's largely wrong with the so-called independent music scenario in the country. You see, Dogra stands for the typically self-entitled female performer who calls herself a pioneer female in the industry, time and again, simply because she has some international roots somewhere from the past; who also uses a lot of her physical attractiveness and sexuality to give more ‘meaning' to her music. Where does that leave the other, real female artists who are making real music and deserve the kind of exposure that right now only a Dogra is privy to? The only reason she sells is because of that and the fact that she's been a regular face in the festival circle, acted averagely in indie movies—the only one worth boasting of was her stint in the Aamir Khan starrer, ‘Dhobhi Ghaat'—and judged India's first English-singing reality show. To that latter one, too, I could think of many others who'd have been more well-deserving than her (Anushka Manchanda, anyone?). © Facebook/Monica Dogra So, yes, Monica Dogra is largely glorified by the men in the industry, for her fashion choices, for her amicability and for her being able to portray herself as the ‘first of her kind'. In a recent interview she gave to the same radio channel, 94.3, she went ahead and called herself one of the ‘only women' in her field, to paraphrase. If by that title, she means the only woman rapper who remixes music or produces tunes that are largely electronic and goes on to a prose narration throughout, while wearing over-the-top accessories, physically enhancing attire and doing gravity-defying stunts, sure. However, that makes her, like I said, merely a great performer. There are many other female artists in the scene who are way better at music than Miss Dogra; however, Dogra seems to be the only one who gives the audience what can only be called a ‘flavour'. But, music is more than just flavour Miss Dogra; it is food; it is ingredients and it is nutrition for the soul. Unfortunately, her latest track, Naraye Mastana—much like most of her previous ones—lack the wholesomeness of what qualifies as music.
  15. When it comes to Indian tennis, not many can stake claim to the records or boast of an impeccable career than old warhorse Mahesh Bhupathi. One of country's true legends in the sport, Bhupathi won four men's doubles Grand Slam title and a staggering eight mixed doubles crowns in his heydays. His glittering trophy cabinet is home to two Australian Open crowns (both mixed doubles), four French Open trophies (two men's and two mixed doubles), three Wimbledon honours (two mixed and one men's doubles) and three US Open titles (two mixed and one men's doubles). Apart from that, he also possessed numerous souvenirs including the official Grand Slam towels from his playing days. However, just about an year after his retirement, the hard work of the 43-year-old was laid to waste by none other than his wife Lara Dutta. As heavy rain lashed Mumbai flooding roads, rail tracks, hospitals and homes; Bollywood actress Lara shared a photo on Twitter demonstrating how she stopped water from seeping into her house. To the sheer horror of her husband, she had used his towels from major Grand Slam tournaments to stop the water. Putting our Wimbledon,US Open, Aus Open &French Open towels to good use!ð@Maheshbhupathi #MumbaiRain.Stay safe & indoors if possible folks!ð pic.twitter.com/uEV30SPfT5 — Lara Dutta Bhupathi (@LaraDutta) August 29, 2017 Rolled up against the large glass doors, she explained, were towels from the Wimbledon, the US Open and also the Australian and French Open. Clearly, the former Indian tennis star wasn't amused. Are u kidding me !!!! That's years of hard work ð¡ð¡ð¡ https://t.co/3ihImzbOWa — Mahesh Bhupathi (@Maheshbhupathi) August 29, 2017 Following his wife's exploits, the 12-time Grand Slam champion wasted no time in speaking his mind. "Are u kidding me !!!! That's years of hard work," a flabbergasted Bhupathi tweeted. Watching a brilliant banter unfold between a popular couple, twiterratis couldn't help but join the fun. Perfect example of ghar me raj humesa sirf biwi ka chalta he.
