  1. Australia's Pat Cummins has become the IPL's costliest overseas player after fetching $2.17 million at auction. Photo: AFPAustralia paceman Pat Cummins became the costliest overseas buy in Indian Premier League history Thursday after Kolkata Knight Riders paid $2.17 million for him in the championship's auctions. The winning bid in the cash-rich Twenty20 league, beat the previous record $2.16 million paid for England's Ben Stokes in 2007 by the now-defunct Rising Pune Supergiants. Aussies dominated the bidding war, with all-rounder Glenn Maxwell going to Kings XI Punjab for $1.51 million after recently returning to cricket from a short break due to mental health issues. The IPL auction is an annual event held before the start of each season where teams buy players who sign central contracts. The players get around 75 percent of the auction price — effectively their salary for the season — while the rest goes to their national board. Other big foreign buys included South Africa bowler Chris Morris ($1.4m to Royal Challengers Bangalore), England's World Cup-winning skipper Eoin Morgan ($734,265 to Knight Riders) and Australia limited-overs captain Aaron Finch ($619,303 to Bangalore). But it was Cummins who initiated the biggest bidding war, with Bangalore and Delhi Capitals upping the ante before Kolkata swooped in to catch their former player, who has claimed 32 wickets in 25 IPL matches. "Absolutely pumped to be back on board ... Can't wait to get over there," Cummins said in a video message posted on Kolkata´s official Twitter site. While best for a foreign player, the price paid for Cummins is still short of the 160 million rupees ($2.3 million) that Bangalore paid for Indian batsman Yuvraj Singh in 2015. Explosive hitter Maxwell made his presence felt as he improved from his base price set at 20 million rupees ($282,000) to re-unite with his former team. "He has the capacity to really blast through on a good day," Punjab chief executive Satish Menon said after the big buy. "He is the only guy we see as 'X factor' in the middle-order which we lack very badly. We couldn´t have thought anyone better than him. He knows the ground, he Kings XI Punjab the way it has been." Maxwell has scored 1,397 runs in the IPL at an average of 22.9 at a rapid strike rate of 161.13. A total of 338 players are under the hammer at the auction for the 13th edition of the cash-rich league.
  2. When the western markets sold our charpai or khatiya as 'Indian daybed charpoy' or maang-tikka as a 'chandelier hair clip'; we didn't say much. When Zara was trying to sell our dads' favourite lungi as 'checked skirt' for Rs. 6200 (approx.), or when Amazon was selling 'natural' coconut shells at a price in which you can buy dozens of coconuts; we still didn't say much, just rolled our eyes maybe. By now, it's clear that the West is gradually getting attracted to everything Desi and wants its consumers to get a taste of Indian products. But, still, selling COW DUNG cakes in a grocery store is a bit too much, don't you think? © Reuters We all have heard about the benefits of cow dung and have even used it as fertilizers, fuel, inexpensive thermal insulator and even repel insects. So, it only makes sense for more and more people to introduce people to the wide range of benefits of cow dung. But, this New Jersey grocery store is different. They are selling cow dung cakes with the disclaimer "for religious purpose" and they're "not eatable", for $2.99 only (that's Rs. 214 btw). Were they actually thinking someone wants to eat cow dung to specify it as a disclaimer? My cousin sent me this. Available at a grocery store in Edison, New Jersey. $2.99 only. My question: Are these imported from desi cows or are they from Yankee cows? pic.twitter.com/uJm8ffoKX2 — Samar Halarnkar (@samar11) November 18, 2019 The picture was shared by Samar Halarnkar on Twitter and raised a very valid and important question, "My cousin sent me this. Available at a grocery store in Edison, New Jersey. $2.99 only. My question: Are these imported from desi cows or are they from Yankee cows?" As expected, desi people lost their 'shit' and their comments on these non-edible cow dung cakes are hilarious. If someone wants to eat them, they should be allowed to do so. — Siddharth Singh (@siddharth3) November 18, 2019 Wondering if these will be eaten by NRI bhakts as meatless burgers. — Sushobhan Gupta (@SushovanG1973) November 18, 2019 Jersey cows have been deemed unholy by BJP's West Bengal president, so US worshippers better check provenance #unholycow #holycow #hownowbrowncow — Sudeep Chakravarti (@chakraview) November 18, 2019 Are there eatable ones too?

  4. They say nothing can stop you from chasing your dreams, but we disagree. This statement does not follow the rules of deductive reasoning because some dreams take lot more than ardent wishes to come true.

  5. It is a truth universally acknowledged that there's no love like the love of parents, and I dare you to challenge it. For most of us, life ceases to exist beyond these two individuals who would give up their all to put a smile on our faces. Sacrifices and compromises are almost second nature to them, and some inexplicable sorcery comes into play when it comes to going that extra mile for their kids and their happiness and welfare. © Reuters Well then, it shouldn't surprise you to discover that ace Indian shooter Gagan Narang's father also put everything on the line to fulfil his son's dream of becoming a successful shooter for India. The terrifically skilled shooter who has put India on the world map with his unparalleled show of talent on international platforms didn't have it easy when he started out. Hailing from a middle-class family, Gagan received an air pistol for the first time in 1997 as a gift from his father. With it began Gagan's journey to becoming a master of the trade, as he began practicing in their backyard. © Reuters Over time, the need to widen his skill set and acquire proper training began to weigh heavy. But that required not only a good rifle, but also a lot of funds. That's when Gagan's father, Mr Bhimsen Narang, decided to sell off his property and fund his son's dream. That's how Gagan got his first professional rifle, and the rest as they say is history. © Reuters He has constantly showered India with precious gold medals. Be it the gold he won at the Afro Asian Games and World Cup in 2003, or the four gold medals he bagged during the 2006 Commonwealth Games, Gagan has always brought glory to India. © kreedon However, one of the biggest highlights of his career would surely be the 2012 Olympics bronze that forced the world to stop and take note. Today, he has 10 Commonwealth Games medals, 1 Olympic medal, 5 Asian Games medals and 6 world medals to his name - and he's only going to go forward from here. Also, none of this would have come to pass if Gagan's father hadn't made that sacrifice that not only changed the fate of his son, but also the fate of the Indian subcontinent.
  6. Apple I was the first computer hand-built by Steve Wozniak way back in 1976 originally for $666 (Rs 47,000) where it came with a board that could be hooked to a TV and keyboard. The original computer never came with a casing which is why this particular version was sold in a briefcase. © Wikipedia Commons Today, the same computer was sold at an auction for $471,000 (Rs 3.3 Crore) and came with a built-in keyboard, original manuals, a handful of magazines with articles about the Apple I. The auctioned piece also came with compatible hardware such as an SWTPC PR-40 dot matrix printer, extremely rare photocopies of the original Apple founding paperwork and other items. © YouTube Nobody knows the exact number of Apple I computers that were made; however, some estimate only a total of around 200 devices were made. As of today, only 68 such computers exist in the world according to the Apple-I Registry run by enthusiasts. This particular Apple I computer that was auctioned off has been listed as number 10. The Apple I plays a significant role in Apple's history as it was the first product that helped in financing the creation of the company. Production of the Apple I was discontinued on September 30th, 1977 and was felled by its successor in the same year. © Wikipedia Commons According to the Apple I Registry “Both Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak have stated that Apple did not assign serial numbers to the Apple l. Several boards have been found with numbered stickers affixed to them, which appear to be inspection stickers from the PCB manufacturer/assembler. “ Source: TechCrunch, Christies
  7. Here's some excellent news from India's green brigade! The government is going to make efforts to go absolutely electric where vehicles are concerned and they're starting this with the two and three-wheeler vehicles. The government has decided to make electric vehicles a mandate in certain categories, and judging by the alarming pollution levels in the country, there couldn't be a better decision made than that. Right now, though, the transitional categories include three and two-wheeler vehicles with the engine capacity up to 150cc. © Twitter The decision was made by a recent government panel which was set up and with effect to April 2023, a mandate of sale of only of electric two and three-wheelers, with an engine capacity of 150cc will be put into place and by 2025, it will be made mandatory. The basic mandate is to convert two of the highest selling automotive segments in India to electric, to reduce any form of carbon emissions and, of course, encourage the usage for electric vehicles more prominently in the country. © Indiatimes A similar mandate might take place for school and city buses soon as well, but for now, the focus remains on smaller vehicles, that will be up for change. For now, the government has made the vehicles in this category BS-VI compliant, by taking the current expenditure on the vehicles in this category. The makers are rightfully getting about 4-6 years of transitioning their vehicles in order for them to gain profit from such compliant vehicles. The efforts to increase the usage of electric vehicles in the future comes with another aspect to it. While converting most 2 and 3-wheeler vehicles to EV, the government will also put effective fuel efficiency norms for petrol and diesel vehicles, increasing their price and hence making it a less viable option for the consumers to purchase, in order to have them on the road lesser. To make this work, the power ministry will be creating a framework for carbon credit trading mechanism, as an addition to Corporate Average Fuel Efficiency (CAFE) norms. The idea is to encourage automakers to produce more and more electric vehicles. The transport ministry is working alongside this project as well and they propose to make a step-wise transition for all the vehicles to electric, by 2030, which will be a great step to curb pollution in India, particularly in Delhi. © Twitter Obviously the auto industry has a mixed reaction to this and they're asking for more incentives to transform their vehicles to electric, while many have started bringing their EV car offerings to India and there are already EV launches of major car makers in the country. One major blimp though is the present infrastructure to set up charging stations for these upcoming electric vehicles. The firms looking to establish these charging stations need to procure their licence from Japan, China and other nations. But recently, the Bureau of India Standards (BIS) and the Department of Science and Technology said they are working on an indigenous charging standard for India, making it easier to establish charging stations all over. Once these stations are in place, the costing of these stations will definitely come down, enabling more such setups, for a lesser cost, across the country. © Twitter India's taking a big step toward a greener initiative and we hope the transition happens as smoothly as possible.
  8. 'Avengers: Endgame' has now sold 2.5 million advance tickets before the final chapter in the Marvel Studios' Super Hero franchise Avengers hits the theatres tomorrow. According to BookMyShow: “This marks the highest ever advance ticket sale for a Hollywood film on the platform. 'Avengers: Endgame' is also the fastest film to have surpassed the 2 million advance ticket sales mark on BookMyShow.” Seems like nothing is going to slow down the ticket sales of the highest anticipated movies of this year. Even though the movie was leaked in full yesterday, it is not deterring fans from watching the movie in a proper theatre. Indians already broke the record earlier this week by pre-booking tickets for 'Avengers: Endgame'. In fact, over 1 million tickets were sold in 24 hours. © Marvel Studios Speaking about the audience reception, Ashish Saksena, COO - Cinemas, BookMyShow, said, “With just a few hours left for 'Avengers: Endgame' to hit the screens, the frenzy around the film is unprecedented. The cinemas are doing everything possible to match fans' demand for the film, including round-the-clock screenings as also opening up advance bookings for the entire week ahead. This has enabled BookMyShow to offer several more options to Marvel-lovers and cater to their excitement. As the craze around the film continues to intensify, we expect a mighty opening on Friday and a record-breaking first week.” © Marvel Studios It would be interesting to see how many more tickets will be booked once the movie has been released and more shows get added. It seems like ticket sales for Endgame won't slow down anytime soon. In fact, you're one of the people who doesn't have a ticket and want to avoid spoilers, you can follow our how-to guide here. For the first time ever in India, 'Avengers: Endgame' will be screened 24X7 in select theatres across India.
  9. 25-year-old Wang Shangkun will never forget the fateful year of 2011 when he took a life-altering decision that would leave him bedridden within the next eight years. When Shangkun was 17-years-old, he decided to sell his kidney in order to get his hands on the latest iPhone that was launched in the market. He hawked his kidney in the black market for $4,500 AUD (Rs. 2,29,357.89) and used this amount to purchase two Apple gizmos, an iPad 2 and an iPhone 4. At that time, Shangkun had reportedly said, “Why do I need a second kidney?” One is enough." © Asiawire,Australscope However, such is the irony of life, that today even his remaining kidney is failing him and Shangkun might be looking at a life tied to his bed. He was recently diagnosed with renal deficiency and has to undergo daily dialysis to function, since his remaining kidney can't work efficiently to clear his blood of toxins. Back in the day, when Shangkun had wanted to get his hands on the gadgets, the Anhui province resident of China didn't have enough money to afford the high-end products. However, it was in an online chat room that a possible opportunity presented itself. Shangkun was approached by an organ harvester in an online chat room who assured that selling one of his kidneys could fetch Shangkun 20,000 Yuan. © Asiawire,Australscope In no time afterwards, Shangkun underwent illegal surgery and finally got himself the Apple products he had been lusting after. However, it was his mother who thought something was fishy when she found him in possession of such expensive gadgets and made him confess. In the following months, Shangkun developed an infection in his remaining kidney, and ultimately suffered organ failure. As of today, his condition is so severe that he is in need of daily dialysis and has been left bedridden. Doctors have also suggested that he might need a kidney transplant of his own to get better. Talk about irony.
  10. It's not IPL season yet, but everyone is already quite invested in the next year's IPL. Why? Because it's auction time for the Indian Premier League and we all know how much Indians love cricket and are always excited for all the matches. In theory, the auction period of IPL doesn't sound that exciting but it's still the most crucial part as it basically decides the fate of the upcoming game as any player can act as a gamechanger at any point. Moreover, since people always want to support their state's team, it's obviously important to see who's actually in the team and how much are they worth.

  13. OnePlus has become a force to be reckoned with, as over 1 million units of the OnePlus 6 were sold in just 22 days. OP6 has become the most successful device for the company and the fastest selling device in the company's history. To put things into perspective, the OnePlus 5T and OnePlus 5 took three months to reach the same milestone. Of course, you cannot compare these numbers with giants like Apple and Samsung, as the two companies are capable of selling 10 million units or more in a month. © YouTube/Dave Lee Having said that, this feat cannot be ignored as OnePlus has managed to garner this success due to delivering products for loyal fans at a great price. This also means that OnePlus is having trouble keeping the phone is stock due to its popularity and high demand. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla “As always, our community has surpassed our expectations and we have them to thank for the overwhelming success of the OnePlus 6. We are touched by the trust that 1 million people have placed in us and are grateful for the loyalty they have displayed,” said Pete Lau, Founder, and CEO, OnePlus. The OnePlus 6 offers flagship level configuration at a price that has outmatched every other contemporary in the same price range. The smartphone is outfitted with Qualcomm's flagship processor i.e. Snapdragon 845 SoC and is coupled with 6GB or 8GB of RAM. In fact, in our review we believe that the OnePlus 6 is THE smartphone every Android company needs to beat this year. © Youtube The OnePlus 6 was launched just last month and it's impressive to see the company achieve sales figures in just 22 days. One should note, that these are global sales numbers but we can assume India played a major role in the OnePlus 6's success.

  16. We've all wanted to buy a Ferrari at some point in our lives. Whether it's a shiny red one or a sleek black one, they look gorgeous and would make a great addition to anyone's garage. But, no one would expect a company like Ferrari to ever run out of stock, right? Yes, it is a luxury car brand and there aren't more than a few thousand manufactured every year but if you have enough money to buy one, you'd want to get your pick. You won't be the kind of person who takes no for an answer or one who has to settle. EVER! But, with Ferarri's production capacity maxed out right now, if you are among the few people who want to buy a Ferrari this year, you'll have no choice at all. The only Ferrari that's currently available is the Ferrari GTC4 Lusso. It's not one of the best looking cars out there but it is a Ferrari at the end of the day. © Ferrari This car is being called an FUV (Ferrari Utility Vehicle) since Ferrari has been very open about never producing anything but a sports car. This doesn't look anything like a traditional sports car, though. What about performance? Yes, it's fast. But, in Ferrari's Enrico Galliera's words, “an SUV is not a sports car, it can be fast but it's not a sports car.” © Ferrari With Lamborghini and Bentley both having unveiled SUVs of their own and the Rolls-Royce Cullinan set to be revealed soon too, it makes sense that Ferrari is looking to diversify. Everyone loves an SUV and with the number of cars on the road only going to increase with time, the chances of putting the pedal to the metal are only going to reduce. So, why not get a luxury SUV instead of a sports car? Makes sense no? Here's a sneak peek at the GTC4 Lusso:

Video: Geo News KARACHI: The members of provincial assembly gave into horse-trading in Senate elections that were held on March 3, said Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairperson Imran Khan. Speaking to the media on Monday in Karachi, Imran said he was not sure who exactly took money to change loyalties during the Senate polls, but was sure PTI MPAs were involved in the act. The price of Rs40 million was set to buy the conscience of each MPA, the PTI chief alleged. ?The chief justice of Pakistan should take notice of the use of money in the Senate elections.? Imran added that whatever happened in relation with the Upper House polls was against democracy, demanding that investigative agencies should find out who was involved in horse-trading. Karachi like an heirless property: Imran Speaking to journalists, Imran also criticised the state of affairs in Karachi, saying no one owned the city which is why it is like an heirless property where politics of anarchy is practiced. He said the educated people in Karachi stayed away from politics because of terrorism and fear that had taken over the city. ?Had politics of anarchy not been practiced in Karachi, the city would have been like Dubai.? Imran claimed that the Pakistan Peoples Party took Karachi ?as a cow that ought to be milked?, adding that ?the godfathers? of Karachi went to London, referring to the Mutahidda Qaumi Movement. About the administrative structure of the city, Imran said there was a need to strengthen the local government in Karachi. The PTI chief also said that Karachi needed a more powerful mayor who could solve the issues of citizens. Imran said that seeing the problems pertaining to the city he has decided to contest the 2018 elections from Karachi. The PTI chairman was addressing the media after some prominent members of the entertainment industry announced joining the party.
  21. We all know how Grand Theft Auto 5 took over the world when it first released 5 years ago, and since then it's one of the highest grossing games of all time. The game is still being played by millions of gamers all over the world thanks to its open-world style gameplay and multiplayer mechanics. The 2013 open-world crime game has had “unparalleled longevity,” according to publisher Take-Two Interactive, due to the appeal of GTA: Online. GTA V is now the No.3 best-selling game in 2017 falling behind Tetris (170 million) and Minecraft (144 million) in terms of copies and is the no.6 in terms of revenues according to industry firm The NPD group. Take-two may have newer games like NBA 2K18 and WWE 2K18, GTA V is still the biggest contributor to its total revenues in digital sales. “Our stellar results were highlighted by record recurrent consumer spending on both Grand Theft Auto Online and NBA 2K18, robust ongoing sales of Grand Theft Auto V, and the successful launch of WWE 2K18,” Take-Two chief executive Strauss Zelnick said in the press release. Recurrent spending in terms of gamin means digital purchases from gamers who have already bought the game and spend on DLC and other digital products like skins, costumes and mods. This also means that Rockstar will continue to provide support for one of the highest selling games on the planet and currently gamers will receive a new update that includes a game called 'Battle Royale'. The new mode will transform vehicle races, heists and other modes to keep the game engrossing even after 5 years of its release. © Twitter Rockstar is also busy releasing their next game i.e. Red Dead Redemption 2, which will launch on October 2 and Take-Two is promising record revenues to its investors. The game is expected to earn $2.5 billion in revenues, more than any other game in the recent past.
  22. After much hullabaloo, the players' auction for the eleventh edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) has finally come to an end. Spanning over two days, the crazy bidding war amongst the eight IPL franchises saw some of the biggest names in the sport going under the hammer. While some cricketers became millionaires thanks to a great interest from the participating teams, others weren't so lucky. A bird's-eye view of VIVO #IPLAuction pic.twitter.com/vz1lMQENKl — IndianPremierLeague (@IPL) January 28, 2018 England all-rounder Ben Stokes might have missed out playing in the recently-concluded Ashes series owing to his assault case, but the 26-year-old reaped the biggest rewards during the IPL auction before going under the hammer for a whopping Rs 12.5 crore - the most expensive buy this season. Very happy to be announced as the player of @DelhiDaredevils for this season of @IPL ! Special thanks to all those people who kept me in their prayers with holding their nerves ! Journey begins now !! ð — Sandeep Lamichhane (@IamSandeep25) January 28, 2018 Amongst Indian players, Jaydev Unadkat bagged the biggest paycut of Rs 11.5 crore, while the likes of KL Rahul and Manish Pandey settled for a staggering Rs 11 crore each. Another highlight of the IPL auction was 17-year-old Sandeep Lamichhane who was bought by Delhi Daredevils for Rs 20 lakh, becoming the first Nepali cricketer to be purchased by an IPL team. But, amid all the big-bucks signings and notable moments, there was one name that caught everyone's eye - Aryaman Vikram Birla. Humble, confident and extremely talented. Meet @AryamanBirla. He's got a beautiful message for the Royals and the Squad. . .#HallaBol #AbBajegaDanka #IPL2018 pic.twitter.com/VJm2jUyxgk — Rajasthan Royals (@rajasthanroyals) January 28, 2018 An experience I can't wait for. Looking forward to the season with RR. https://t.co/wamhzy0XNH — Aryaman Birla (@AryamanBirla) January 29, 2018 At a base price of just Rs 20 lakh, the 20-year-old went unsold in the first round of the auction. But, the second round of bidding for the unsold players saw the young all-rounder going under the hammer for Rajasthan Royals who agreed to shell out Rs 30 lakh. If his paycut of just Rs 30 lakh seemed mediocre, the fact that this left-hander has played only one first-class match, scoring just 22 runs before going wicket-less. So what makes him so special, you ask? It's his popular family name and the grit to toil hard. © BCCL For a player who was sold for a lowly Rs 30 lakh, Aryaman's father is none other than Kumar Mangalam Birla - one of the biggest industrialists in the country - whose net worth is estimated to be $12.6 billion. Being the son of one of India's largest conglomerates and holding a coveted position of a chancellor at the Birla Institute of Technology & Science amongst other luxuries; Aryaman could have easily followed into the footsteps of his father to lead a comfortable life. But, contrary to popular perception, Aryaman chose to sweat it out and try his luck on the cricket field. He swapped his luxury cars for crowded train rides and left his comfortable Mumbai residence for a temporary accommodation in Madhya Pradesh to pursue his cricket career. © BCCL Playing in the Under-23 Col CK Nayudu Trophy, Aryaman grabbed headlines for his blistering knock of 153 runs for Madhya Pradesh in Indore last year. Though he credited his stint in the Mumbai cricket circuit for his steady progress, Aryaman was quick to realise the drying opportunities in the city which instigated his move to Madhya Pradesh. © BCCL Ahead of this year's IPL auctions, Aryaman could have easily used his father's influence to secure a spot in any of the eight franchises. But the fact this boy chose to undergo the entire process, shows his determination to forge his own path in a domain that remains unknown to his popular family. © Twitter “I've played cricket my entire life. I was eight, maybe nine-years-old when I started playing. I played a lot of sports when I was very little, but cricket was the one that stood out for me. There was no definite moment when I realised I wanted to pursue it as my career; it was a natural progression from it being a hobby to now playing it professionally,” Aryaman told Deccan Chronicle during an interview last year. After being roped in by Rajasthan this year, the fact that this youngster will be playing alongside the likes of Steve Smith, Ajinkya Rahane and Ben Stokes will surely help him improve as a cricketer.

The investigation by the BBC Radio 4's File on Four programme found that fake degrees were bought by National Health Service (NHS) consultants, nurses, and a large defence contractor in the UK, with one British citizen spending as much as £500,000 on bogus documents. According to the BBC, more than 3,000 fake Axact degrees were sold to UK-based buyers in 2013 and 2014, including master's degrees, doctorates, and PhDs. The UK buyers included a consultant at a London teaching hospital who purchased a degree in internal medicine from the fake Belford University in 2007. A defence contractor, FB Heliservices, got seven of its employees, including two helicopter pilots, fake degrees from Axact between 2013 and 2015. Axact executive pleads guilty in 'diploma mill' scam, faces 20 years in US prison Umair Hamid pled guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, which carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison: US Dept of Justice The company has now has now branched out into extortion and blackmail, former FBI agent Allen Ezell, who has been investigating Axact since the 1980s, told the BBC. A British engineer based in Saudi Arabia is still receiving threatening calls from Axact agents after paying nearly £500,000 for fake documents, said the BBC. In response to the BBC investigation, the UK's Department for Education said it was taking "decisive action to crack down on degree fraud" that "cheats genuine learners". Axact claims to be the "world's largest IT company", and operates hundreds of fake online universities run by agents from a Karachi call centre. In 2015, it sold more than 215,000 fake qualifications globally through approximately 350 fictitious high schools and universities, making $51m (£37.5m) that year alone.

  24. Cracking the IIT is a dream wished upon a star by many starry eyed kids but achieved by a handful. This is the story of four people, out of which two are IITians working in plush jobs, minting money and giving up their worldly desires to attain 'moksha'. Meet Viral Dedhia, Dharmil Dedhia, Sanket Parekh, and Chandresh Poladia who are all set to embrace monkhood. © TOI Sanket is a chemical engineer from IIT Bombay and has a well paid job with a super comfortable life. He was even planning to shift to the US to pursue a master's degree. He was an atheist but all that is changing now. Speaking to TOI (https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/mumbai/mumbai-iitian-gives-up-cushy-job-family-for-diksha/articleshow/62515335.cms), he explained what influenced this change. “I would have got everything if I had decided to have a career, but my inner self would never have been at peace like it is today. I was chatting with Bhavik, who was in Canada doing an internship with the University of Alberta in 2010. Since I was in my final year, it was a normal chat, about what next for us. I don't know how the conversation veered towards the concept of soul. It was the first time I was thinking about soul, mind and body. That was the trigger and I went deeper with my search and began reading more about Jainism,” he said. © YouTube(Representational image) Parekh pays a tax that amounts to around 12 lakhs per annum, so that gives you an idea of how much he might be earning. It was hard for him to convince his family but they eventually understood. He has been training under Acharya Yugbhushansurji to learn about all the rituals. Around 16 people are going to take 'diksha' in a ceremony that will take place in Borivali, Mumbai, on January 22. 14-year-old Yashika Lodaya, who is also taking 'diksha' with her parents-Hemal and Pritesh, is the youngest in the group. Another 16-year-old who is all set to embrace Jainism is Dharmil, who used to spend hours on his phone watching funny videos. He was instantly drawn when he first heard the sermons and decided to spend more time in studying Jain texts. The growing trend among many educated people to renounce the materialistic pleasures of the world explains how important it is for them to attain a life rich in quality. “The more educated one is, better is the understanding about the core of religion, "says Maharaj Satvabhushanji, a Harvard scholar and who is now a disciple of Acharya Maharajsaheb.
