    Among the long list of enemies of Subramanian Swamy, a prized place would go to the former PM Atal Behari Vajpayee.

    Theirs’ was an animosity nurtured over the decades and it simmered till Vajpayee retired from the public life due to ill health.

    Subramanian Swamy blames Vajpayee for keeping him out of the Cabinet twice, first in the post-Emergency  Janata government and two decades later from the first NDA government.

    As the NDA PM, Vajpayee survived on Jayalalithaa’s support and according to Subramanian Swamy, she lobbied for his inclusion as the finance minister.

    In a rare show of spine, Vajpayee had reportedly said no to her.

    Vajpayee never spoke about the problems he had with Subramanian Swamy.

    An old Outlookarticle gives a hint on the what had made Subramanian Swamy so unhappy with Vajpayee. Its source is Tamil magazine Kumudham, which had serialised Subramanian Swamy’s autobiography, aptly titled: Swami and Friends—a Few Enemies Too.

    Besides blaming Vajpayee for his exclusion from the cabinet, Subramanian Swamy also accuses Vajpayee of bringing down the Morarji Desai government.

    It was Vajpayee not Charan Singh, who along with Ramakrishna Hegde, had reportedly gone to the President with the list of MPs, who were withdrawing support to the Morarji Desai government. Many names in the list were forged, alleges Subramanian Swamy.

    The autobiography seems to be loaded anecdotes.

    Subramanian Swamy says Vajpayee was known for his love for the drink. He once reportedly got drunk at a party hosted by the Japanese and had been admonished by Morarji Desai and Subramanian Swamy claims to have witnessed that.

    Why was Vajpayee so upset with his younger colleague?

    Subramanian Swamy says to get out of the Emergency jail Vajpayee had given an apology letter to Indira Gandhi. He was, hence, reportedly upset that Subramanian Swamy had become a hero  due to his resistanceto Emergency

    Bollywood is going ga ga over Kaveri Kapur, the 15-year-old daughter of Shekhar Kapur and Suchitra Krishnamurthy, who has just released a single "Did You Know".

    SRK, Hrithik Roshan, Karan Johar, Shaan and Sonu Nigam are among those, who have tweeted about  Kaveri Kapur’s debut album.

    The song was written, composed and sung by Kaveri Kapur, when she was 11. So, she may not sound like this anymore.

    Shekhar Kapur and Suchitra Krishnamurthy who married in 1997, are now divorced. Shekhar Kapur was earlier married to Medha Jalota, niece of Indrakumar Gujral. They split in 1994.

    Kangana Ranaut, who went missing after the nasty fight with Hrithik Roshan, seems to have used the time to improve her looks with some slick plastic surgery.

    The actress had said she had taken some time off to take a vacation in Germany.

    Cosmopolitan magazine has published her before and after photos and speculated that her face looks more more chiseled now, and her lips fuller.

    Kangana Ranaut's new photo came from  the event to launch Shirish Kunder's short film, Kriti.

    The lips do look a little puffed up and shaped more prominently, while the face has gone lean and elongated.

    If Kangana Ranaut has indeed resorted to plastic surgery to sharpen her looks, she seems to have opted for subtle makeovers and avoided disasters like what Anushka Sharma did to her lips sometime ago.

    In Kangana Ranaut's case the changes are so incremental it is hard to tell if she has gone for face implants or just got fat removed from her cheeks.

    Cosmopolitan even speculates Kangana Ranaut may have used makeup to get this look.

    Kanye West has premiered his much-anticipated "Famous" music video to a select audience in Los Angeles.

    The song has triggered shockwaves by showing a galaxy of famous personalities, not just from Hollywood, nude and lying on a bed next to each other.

    In the visuals that have leaked you can see Rihanna, Chris Brown, Caitlyn Jenner, Amber Rose, Anna Wintour, Ray J, Bill Cosby, Donald Trump, and George Bush.

    Kanye is in the middle, sandwiched by Taylor Swift and wife Kim Kardashian. There is not an inch of fabric on anyone though the camera work seems to have just glossed over their most intimate parts.

    While many celebs appear nude, thanks to VFX, some of them actually shot for the scene, the rumour goes.

    While some say, Kanye West should be sued for this, he told a magazine that it was a comment on their fame.


    Taylor Swift fans are upset that he calls her a bitch and says that he may still have sex with her.  According to Kim Kardashian, Swift knew about these lines and approved them, though the star seem to indicate otherwise now.

    The song is currently available only to subscribers of a few streaming services. Here are the first leaked visuals of the premier of Kanye West’s new song, Famous.

    Dinesh Mohaniya was later produced before a magistrate who rejected his bail plea and sent him to judicial custody till June 27.

    Dinesh Mohaniya said the Delhipolice had arrested him under the glare of cameras to humiliate him.

    The Friday night showstoppers at IIFA Awards in Madrid were Pakistani and Indian stars Fawad Khan and Deepika Padukone.  Looking ravishing in a black Swapnil Shinde gown Deepika towered over Fawad. That perhaps prompted host Karan Johar to challenge Fawad to woo Deepika.  Fawad rose to the challenge, recited a few lines from popular Hindi song Roop tera mastana impromptu and hugged her. The bristling energy he brought to the show is something, you would have associated with Ranveer singh.

    Fawad rose to the challenge, recited a few lines from popular Hindi song Roop tera mastana impromptu and hugged her. The bristling energy he brought to the show is something, you would have associated with Ranveer singh.

    Fawad also teased Deepika saying she was his ticket to Hollywood, referring to her movie, XXX with Vin Diesel.

    Responding in kind, Deepika went down on her knees, again, in a style made familiar by Ranveer Singh.

    In an online survey,  women have reported of having had more sexual partners than men.

    Women said they have had an average of 7 sex partners, while men averaged at about 6.4 partners.

    The discrepancy could be more as the survey also found that men inflate and women deflate the number of people they have slept with.

    The survey conducted by SuperDrug Online Doctor covered more than 2,000 people in the US and Europe, reports Salon.

    The survey also asked the threshold men and women  would consider  “promiscuous.”

    Men think women who have slept with more than 14 partners are promiscuous, while women think men who have had 15 partners or more as promiscuous.

    On the the other hand, men who have had 2.3 partners see themselves as too conservative, while for the women the number is 1.9.

    A little over 30% of men and women are ok sharing their sexual history with their new partners within a month.

    June 26, 2016, NewsCrunch

    The movie opens in a room in disarray, with a large bed on the floor, a scene many may recall from their college life.

    There are two men sleeping, one of them shirtless, and there is a woman in the middle, who is also asleep.

    She wakes up, goes to the sink, lights up a cigarette loaded with drugs.

    One of the men wakes up and begs for a drag, she tells him - Get lost, bhenchod.

    The other guys also wakes, takes the cigarette from her slyly, It is her turn to beg and get rebuffed.

    She collapses on the floor crying and asking for a drag.

    The camera cuts to a photo framed atop a table - it shows the two men proudly flaunting rakhi tied by the woman, who is sitting in the middle.

    The short film, with a surprising twist, ends with a message - Be it relationship or health, drugs can ruin everything.

    Made by Zero Budget Talkies, it is titled a little intriguingly: Those walls watched Everything. The slickly made movie has a a run time  2.24 minutes and is getting good views.

    Bihar Board’s Class XII Arts topper Ruby Rai shocked the officials, who took her retest on Saturday, both with her answers and confidence.

    She was arrested by the police for fraud after she took the written test and interview, and came out of the building..

    Asked to write, an essay on Tulsidas, the medieval saint and social reformer, Ruby Rai wrote just one line Tulsidas ji, pranam (Salutations, O' Tulsidas).

    The Hindustan Times reports that her answers shocked the entire panel, who wondered  how she had come first for the state.

    But Ruby Rai was neither apologetic nor lacking in confidence. She coolly told the re-test board that she had forgotten what she had studied as the exams had been held two months ago.

    Her confidence struck the policemen as well, who took her into custody. Ruby Rai refused to cover her face and did so only after the police insisted.

    A Supreme Court directive requires the police to keep the faces of under-trials covered.

    Ruby Rai was arrested following a non-bailable warrant issued by a local court against four toppers including her.

    The Arts topper and two other toppers are from the controversial V R College in Vaishali district, whose principal Amit Kumar alias Bachcha Rai has already been arrested.

    He allegedly used his connections with former BSEB chairman Lalkeshwar Prasad and his ex-MLA wife Usha Sinha to fix results and get toppers from his college.

    A month ago the scam unravelled, when Ruby Rai was found unable to answer simple questions on her subject in a TV interview. She had said  “Prodikal (read political) science was about cooking”.

    Finolex likes to go a little overboard while making advertisements with a touch of humour.

    This time it has gone to space to promote its fans.

    An Indian astronaut in International Space Station runs out of achaar.

    His plight gets the attention of the nation, with the nation-wants-to-know people and other odd celebs taking up his cause. But mission control is badly divided as sending achaar to ISS is not worth the cost.

    His mother then steps in and blasts off the ever loyal Ramu Kaka to space with the help of four Finolex fans, which create a woman-made tornado, all the way from her garden to space.

    Ramu Kaka surprises the Indian astronaut, sorry vyomnaut, with a ceramic jar full of pickles.

    A PR stunt went horribly wrong, when  Panaji Mayor Surendra Furtado fell into water at Campal creek on Sunday.

    Surendra Furtado was riding a boat, which had been fitted with a weed-removal mechanism, to showcase the new acquisition.

    A few local journalists and officials were also with him on the boat.

    The script went wrong when the boat tilted and capsized in a creek that also serves as an outlet for sewage. Surendra Furtado and others had to be pulled out of the water.

    The monsoon-induced turbulence in water is being blamed  for the accident.

    Awkward photos which show Pakistani cricketer-politician Imran Khan  crouching on the stage to felicitate disabled persons have gone viral.

    In the event held at ShaukatKhanumMemorialCancerHospitalin Islamabad, which was built by Imran Khan in memory of his mother, organisers forgot to build ramps.

    Without ramps, disabled persons, who had been invited, were unable to get on to the stage, which was graced by Imran Khan, who had come as the chief guest .

    Now, instead of getting off the stage to hand over awards and certificates, Imran Khan  preferred to stay on it. And, that required him to bend over to greet and felicitate the disabled persons each time they were called.

    Twitter users were quick to point out the absurdity and the insensitivity of Imran Khan  and said he had displayed Zero IQ in handling he situation.

    A few users said the event had been held at a hotel and not ShaukatKhanumMemorialCancerHospital.

    The Congress party, which is usually at the receiving end on social media, has managed to turn table for once.

    It has released a new video 2 Saal Bura Haal: Govt All Talk, No Work, slamming Modi and it is going viral.

    The video has been released to mark the second anniversary of the Modi government, which the Congress alleges, has been an all round failure.

    The four-minute long video replays recordings of Modi speeches on various issues, all made before polls and contrasts his claims with actual performance.

    Modi reminds the crowd that UPA had promised to reduce the prices. On rupee fall, he says  under the economist-prime minister Manmohan Singh, Rupee was touching 60 rupees a dollar.


    Then there is the famous speech of bringing back black money to give Rs 15 lakh to all Indians.


    There are similar Modi jibes on fuel hike, lack of job creation and failures on foreign policy. When Pakistan was cutting throats of Indian soldiers, Indian foreign minister was treating a Pakistani  team with biriyani, says Modi.  


    The video also contrasts the gaps between what Modi promised and what he delivered. Rupee touching 67 a dollar, the price hikes of arhar dal, urad dal, moong dal and the alleged effort to shield Lalit Modi, Shivraj Singh Chauhan and others facing charges.

    Then you have Amit Shah saying the black money promise was jumla and Arun Shourie saying the top priority of Modi government was to manage headlines.

    The video is political, a Congress propaganda but makes a few points that may resonate with many.
