    Rahul Gandhi said people in the villages had begun to chant Arhar Modi, Arhar Modi, thanks to a steep rise in the price of essential commodities.

    Lentil or arhar, a critical ingredient in Indian cooking, has reached Rs 200 a kg.

    In his speech on inflation, Rahul Gandhi tried to tap into the popular anger on inflation.

    "All across villages, a new slogan is ringing out- Arhar Modi," he said.

    Rahul Gandhi also sought to put a new spin on BJP’s popular election-time slogan, Har Har Modi.

    He derisively said the government was free to make any futile programme it wanted to, from Make in Indiato Start up India or Stand up India.

    But he wanted Modi to give a date to Parliament, by which inflation would be brought down.

    After training as an off-spinner, he became a cricket legend for his devastating batting.

    After retiring, instead of settling in some boring cricketing gig, Virender Sehwag opted to become a social media star.

    Almost every tweet of his, which comes imprinted with his earthy humour goes viral, driving fans nuts.

    And he seems to relish in sending birthday wishes. When it was Allan Border’s birthday he noted that Indians had made a movie called Border, while Australians were yet to make a film called Gavaskar.

    Jonty Rhodes was wished as a player who played cricket as well as chidiya ud (bird fly) on the field. Who would have thought that Sober was soberm, the way he batted, was another gem.

    On the extremely tall bowler Jacob Oram’s birthday, Virender Sehwag said facing him was like getting a delivery from a second floor.

    As someone noted, Virender Sehwag’s tweets are so funny, they read like arsenal from a parody account.

    The forest department has filed an FIR against local councillor Mamatha Vasudev, under whose supervision the tree was cut, for killing the snake.

    Many said she was also a trustee at the temple and knew about the snake, which lived in a hole, but still went ahead to chop it down.

    Mamatha Vasudev, whoever, defended her action, saying the tree was old and posed to threat to the childlren of te school.

    Among the foreign policy successes Modi can legitimately claim is the personal rapport he has built with US President Obama.   The sentiments are reciprocated and Obama also counts friendship with Modi as a foreign policy success.

    The sentiments are reciprocated and Obama also counts friendship with Modi as a foreign policy success.

    A ten-minute introductory video of Barack Obama played at Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia on Wednesday gives a fleeting glimpse of him and Modi, in the hug mode.

    The video, played to a huge audience, set the mood for the Obama speech that followed, in which he made a passionate pitch for Hillary Clinton.

    The introductory video retraced critical moments of Obama presidency, including the hunting of Osama.

    That Obama thought it fit to include his meeting with Modi in the video, underlines both his personal rapport and the strategic significance India has come to acquire for the US.

    ‘Split’ may not really help M Night Shyamalan regain his lost touch.

    The suspense filmmaker has been struggling to sustain a career, which began with a bang with the likes of The Sixth Sense and Signs, and has languished since.

    His new film ‘Split’, due for release next January, is a psychological thriller which walks a clichéd path

    James McAvoy, The X-Men professor, kidnaps three teenaged girls. He suffers from a personality disorder – there are as many as 23 different people in his frame.

    ‘Split’ may not really help M Night Shyamalan regain his lost touch.  The suspense filmmaker has been struggling to sustain a career, which began with a bang with the likes of The Sixth Sense and Signs, and has languished since.

    As the plot unravels, he tells the girls, who are locked up in a basement,  that the beast is coming.   

    James McAvoy’s intensity is scary, but memories of  few other films – The Silence of Lambs, for instance – may strike you.

    After keeping the ‘Split’ plot under the wraps for sometime, M Night Shyamalan makes the cardinal mistake of revealing too much in the trailer.

    A new video of cow vigilantes thrashing a man, allegedly in Rajasthan, has surfaced.


    His crime: carrying meat the side luggage carrier of his motorbike.


    Three vigilantes are seen beating up the guy ignoring his pleas for mercy. One of them is heard saying, “Will you kill my mother…” in a reference to the hallowed status of the Hindutva’s sacred animal.


    Another man pulls out a gun threatening to shoot the man.

    The fourth vigilante, who possibly recorded the video, can be heard asking them not to hit the victim in the face.

    Cow vigilantes are known to record their acts of violence and upload them on social media to use them as propaganda.

    The latest incident follows the thrashing of four Dalits in Una, Gujarat, which has made members of the oppressed community go on a strike.

    Pakistanhas built foot-over bridges to enable signal free traffic but ahs a problem in getting people to use it.

    In Lahore, Amin Hafeez found that while people tried to sneak across traffic to cross the road, a herd of cows and buffalos were dutifully taking the foot-over bridges.

    He trailed them ascending and descending the steps and even paused for a bite. While we hear the buffalo just moo, a helpful translation from Amin Hafeez is available.

    The buffalo reportedly told him that for any animal taking the foot-over bridges is not an easy feat, slyly justifying why humans do what they do.

    A car carrying five individuals rammed into truck carrying iron rods, from behind.  Jatin Gambir (25), who was driving the car, and Kirti (15), a passenger in the front seat, died after the rods pierced into their bodies.

    Jatin died on the spot, while Kirti passed away at a hospital later.

    Jatin reportedly failed to judge the length of iron rods protruding out of the truck moving ahead of them and hit them, states The Hindustan Times quoting a police official.

    The accident took place near Bahomajra village in Khanna on Saturday. The police have slapped a case of negligent driving against the truck driver, who is absconding.

    If you have noticed, Arnab Goswami, the man who coined the famous phrase, The nation wants to know, does not use it anymore.  His often repeated phrase The nation wants to know spawned a storm of memes and spoofs.  In an interview with R J Mandy for Red FM, Arnab Goswami says that is precisely why he stopped using it.
    "It was supposed to be a serious line but it has become a comic line," Arnab Goswami complains to R J Mandy of Red FM, without raising his voice. (video below)

    If you have noticed, Arnab Goswami, the man who coined the famous phrase, The nation wants to know, does not use it anymore.

    His often repeated phrase The nation wants to know spawned a storm of memes and spoofs.

    In an interview with R J Mandy for Red FM, Arnab Goswami says that is precisely why he stopped using it.

    "It was supposed to be a serious line but it has become a comic line," he complained, without raising his voice.

    He notes that the phrase got so wildly popular he became self-conscious while using it. He rightly says wherever he goes he finds people saying The nation wants to know. In the movies they say it, they sell t-shirts with those words, he says.

    So, now he says, country wants to know or I want to know, so that he would not be misunderstood.

    There is also an explanation on how the famous phrase originated.  During interviews, Arnab Goswami felt that the questions he was raising ought to have been asked by people or nation, and hence came up with the phrase.

    In striking contrast, Arnab Goswami, who has built a reputation as a studio tiger, comes across as docile as a lamb in the  interview with RJ Mandy.

    Speaking mostly in Assamese he described himself as a ‘normal family man’ who shocks people at social functions by not shouting.

    I am actually  a ‘good listener’, says Arnab Goswami.

    A video of an NRI boy committing suicide during a  skype call after breaking up with girl friend call has gone viral.

    The boy is introduced as Naresh and the girl, Nitya Chakravarty. They speak in English sprinkled with Telugu  and the boy jumps off his window after a break-up talk.

    The video has been going viral since Friday with most slamming the girl for being so stone-hearted and the boy for cracking up.

    The video has tell-tale signs that it is a fake. While Naresh is captured in a Skype call, there is another camera zooming in on Nitya Chakravarty's face. A cliched script and bad acting also make strong hints that it is not the footage of live suicide.

    For those interested in finer analysis on why it is a fake, follow comments in the video below.

    A comment informs that the video is a trailer from an upcoming Hindi-Telugu film Wish You Happy Breakup and the actress is a fairly known face Swetha Varma.

    The filmmakers have cleverly released the footage without putting any credit, adding to the confusion.

    The hardest part of Luke Aikins’s jump was staying on target as the wind changes all the time at different altitudes
    (video below)

    August 1, 2016, NewsCrunch

    A US skydiver Luke Aikins jumped from 25,000 feet above California's Simi Valleywithout a parachute on Saturday.

    He landed safely in a two-tiered 100 feet x 100 feet net that had been set up to catch him.

    Though falling at 120 mph he was bang on target in the dive that had been labelled Heaven Sent.

    The full video shows him diving with his team, who set him off on the target.  Seconds before he was to reach the safety net, he rolled onto his back to land in the right position.

    The footage includes visuals taken from his own possibly Go Pro camera.

    The 42-year-old, who is married and has a 4-year-old son, is a seasoned skydiver.

    The hardest part of the jump was staying on target as the wind changes all the time at different altitudes.


    During practice jumps, he had been consistently been hitting a much smaller target though with parachute and that gave him confidence to make the leap.
