  1. Earlier this year, Guneet Monga's 'Period. End of Sentence' created history (both for the world and India) by winning the Best Documentary Short Subject at the Oscars 2019, and now, it looks like the 92nd Academy Awards too will be pretty much owned by India as another short film, 'Kamali', has qualified for the Oscars 2020. In fact, 'Kamali' recently won praises and the Best Documentary award at the Atlanta Film Festival. 'Kamali' is based on the life of Suganthi, a single mother from Tamil Nadu and how she strives each day to raise her 9-year-old skateboarder daughter. Facebook According to a report in The News Minute, Kamali's mentor Aine Edwards said. "When Suganthi (Kamali's mother) sees her children, she reflects on her childhood and how she could not do the things she wished to do because of the society. Today, she wants Kamali to taste the freedom she did not have." Aine further added, "The crew came and shot the film over six weeks. After it was edited, they even sent it to the Mumbai International Short Film Festival in December 2018, where it won Best Director Award." Twitter When asked about the awards the short film has won so far, Kamali's mother said, "I think this award is the biggest achievement of my life, only after my children, of course." For those of you who didn't know, 9-year-old Kamali Moorthy is the only girl skateboarder from Mahabalipuram, Tamil Nadu. She has reportedly, travelled across the country along with professional skateboarding teams to promote skateboarding as a sport. Kamali also dreams of becoming a professional surfer. The 24-minute short film, 'Kamali' is directed by Sasha Rainbow, a filmmaker from New Zealand. Let's hope that 'Kamali' wins an award at Oscars 2020 and makes sure that everyone across the globe knows how talented this little girl is and how her mother struggles each day to give her a better life.
  2. We've already seen institutions banning PUBG (PlayerUnknowns Battlegrounds) in the last few months, and now, another app is likely to join the list. Tamil Nadu's Information Technology Minister M. Manikandan made the news after he said he'll be asking the Central Government to ban the infamous video app TikTok. The minister was responding to a plea by lawmaker Thameemun Ansari. He claims that the younger generation is hooked onto the video-based social media network and is leading to cultural degeneration. He also pointed out that the platform spreads sexually explicit content by morphing innocent people's face. © Bytedance "We will take up the matter with Centre to take action (possibly banning it)," the IT Minister said, "the same way blue whale game was banned," indicating that the app could have fatal consequences among the youth if action isn't initiated. TikTok was previously famous as "Musically", a platform to create short videos. The app was acquired by Bytedance in 2017 and merged into a new app called TikTok. Users can create 15-second to 1-minute videos with background music or dialogues for lip-syncing. These short videos have received immense popularity in the last few years and according to research agencies, the app has a 39 per cent userbase from India. © Tech Advisor More than 500 million users are available worldwide and the app has been known for its poor privacy controls. There have been multiple incidents of many under-age children being spotted on the platform. In-app monitoring has been a crucial point of criticism as the content is often used to spread hate speech as well. India won't be the first country to ban the app though. In July 2018, Indonesia briefly banned the app in view of inappropriate content. Recently, the Chennai Police also busted a flesh trade racket that used morphed pictures of women, downloaded from the app to lure customers. © CNBC We reached out to TikTok and they said, "At TikTok, maintaining a safe and positive in-app environment is our priority. We have robust measures to protect users against misuse, including easy reporting mechanisms that enable users and law enforcement to report content that violates our terms of use and community guidelines. We are committed to respecting local laws and regulations, and in order to better coordinate with law enforcement agencies, we are also in the process of hiring a Chief Nodal Officer, based out of India." The company also partnered with Cyber Peace Foundation and announced #SafeHumSafeInternet initiative on Safer Internet Day (5 February). Though, it has been fairly visible that the company has done little to actually improve the platform from an abuse point of view.
  3. So it is your friend's wedding and of course you want to present a gift that he will remember for years to come and perhaps even tell his grandchildren about. We have all been through similar situations ourselves, when we have picked our brains for the longest time to come up with 'hatke' gift ideas for a friend's wedding. © maxpixel The same thought seems to have struck a bunch of groom's friends in Tamil Nadu and they came up with the most epic idea for what to gift their friend. In the Cuddalore district of Tamil Nadu a young man and his newly wed wife were greeting guests when the groom's friends came in bearing a gift of a lifetime for their dear friend - a can full of five litres of petrol. Why, you ask? Read on to find out. © Twitter Petrol prices in the state of Tamil Nadu have touched Rs 85.15 per litre and this transformed the fuel into a valuable commodity, worthy of being presented as wedding gift, the friends claimed. The incident was first reported by the Tamil TV channel called, 'Puthiya Thalaimurai' through a 39-second video clip, and has since made it to the top news of the day. © Maxpixel Right when “No Gifts Please” is slowly picking up pace in the Indian wedding scene, this unexpected yet useful wedding gift is something that even the groom couldn't have said no to. We feel that is such a thoughtful (and different nonetheless) gift to present someone, especially when the fuel prices in Tamil Nadu happen to be one of the highest in the country. We reckon this gift would have surely won a few hearts and a ton of laughter at the wedding!
  4. Learning a foreign language is not an easy task. It takes a lot of time, effort and dedication to learn a new language and be fluent in it. I am sorry but asking for 'wo-tah' instead of water does not count as learning a foreign language, it's just a fake accent. Language classes were a huge deal back in school and had most of us not bunked those lessons to watch movies with our friends, we would have learned something new by now, or at least could have gotten the world talking about us, just like how they are praising this Chinese woman right now. © Twitter What can be so special or unique about a Chinese woman talking about the Great Wall of China, that people are watching the video on loop? Her impeccable Tamil speaking skills. While most of us can't even speak our native language fluently, she made speaking in Tamil look like child's play for everyone watching the video. © Reuters Anand Mahindra, whose Twitter account is like a goldmine when it comes to looking for unique extraordinary talent, found and shared this video with the caption, "Not easy to learn the accent & cadence of the language but this Chinese lady seems to have conquered the Great Wall of Tamil." Thanks for this video Ravi. Fun start to a Monday. Not easy to learn the accent & cadence of the language but this Chinese lady seems to have conquered the Great Wall of Tamil. Have to ask my buddy @MM_Murugappan if he approves..ð pic.twitter.com/h3V8cr30Gm — anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) July 30, 2018 Apart from her flawless Tamil speaking skills, people even loved her traditional attire (off-white Anarkali with a red dupatta). Although the way she spoke wasn't colloquial and looked like its straight from a textbook, we are really impressed with her efforts. I wish I had paid more attention to my foreign language classes, than on the food in the canteen!
