|Several videos of flying parathas have been shot over the years without |
even a single of them missing target.(Video below)
Velankanni, a small town in Tamil Nadu, is on tourist map for two reasons. First, the church of Mother Mary draws a following of faithful from all over south India.
Second, a local hotel had gone viral a few years ago after its workers were caught on camera throwing and catching parathas with amazing precision.
A video shows a worker rolling parathas and then throwing them to his colleague, who is a few feet away. The other man catches and cooks it. The action takes place nonstop and you see an uninterrupted flight of parathas through the air.
The place is identified as Bhaskar Hotel near the beach. Several videos of flying parathas have been shot over the years without even a single of them missing target.

Ramzan, the boy from Pakistan, who is stranded at an NGO-run shelter in Bhopal, is upset that his mother refused to come to India to fetch him.
Indian envoy T C A Raghavan met his mother Razia Begum in Karachi and invited her to come to India to visit her son and take him back, if Pakistan could prepare his travel papers by then.
But she refused the invitation saying as a Muslim she did not feel safe in India.
Her refusal has hit Ramzan hard. The 15-year-old boy, who had adjusted to his life in Bhopal shelter home, has stopped playing with his friends, become quiet and irritable, reports The Indian Express.
As he has dropped out of school, he is pretty much alone in the day when his friends go to classes. He kills time staring disinterestedly at a general knowledge book or keeping his eyes fixed on TV.
An NGO official spoke to is father in Bangladesh, who also refused to come, and also said he he lost Ramzan's passport.
For Ramzan to go back to his country quickly as he desperately wants to, the diplomats of both the countries need to match their steps.
While India wants his mother to come here, Pak officials say it will be easier is R is taken to his country by Indian officials. They say MEA has not responded to a letter sent by them in this on the issue, reports The Hindu.
|After police made Jaipur art summit organisers dismantle the plastic cow installation, protesters worshiped it|
November 22, 2015, NewsCrunch
Jaipur police forced organizers of Third Jaipur Art Summit at Jawahar Kala Kendra to dismantle a plastic cow installation saying it hurt sentiments of people.
The cow made of styrofoam had been floated at a height of 50 feet in air with the help of a hot air balloon.
Two artists, Anish Ahluwalia and Chitan Upadhyay, who protested police action, were also reportedly detained at Bajaj Nagar station. However, police said the artists had been only called to the station to explain that the art object was sending a wrong message.
Media reports also quoted Station House Officer (SHO) of Bajaj Nagar police station Mahendra Gupta saying the installation was not art and was sending a wrong message.
After the installation was dismantled and kept in a room, members of a right wing group gathered at the venue to protest. They pulled out the cow, garlanded and worshiped it, while chanting “Gai humari mata hai” and “Gau mata zindabad”.
Suraj Soni, the Jaipur coordinator of People for Animals, who objected to the art work told The Hindu that the plastic cow had been hung by its neck.
"I found it disrespectful because it looked like the cow had been hanged to death. Also, there was no slogan accompanying the art work and one could easily misconstrue the installation as a portrayal of cruelty on animals.”

|As a kid, Shweta had barged into Salman Khan's house and offered to tie a rakhi (video below)|
November 23, 2015, NewsCrunch
Shweta Rohira is in news over her unfortunate divorce from TV star Pulkit Samrat, whom she married last November in Goa.
The estranged couple had been living separately for sometime now after Pulkit shifted to Delhi to be with his parents.
They had personal differences and would reportedly indulge in noisy fights frequently even drawing complaints from neighbours. Pulkit's rumoured proximity with Yami Gautam also seems to have contributed to the discord.
Their marriage drew attention last year as Salman Khan performed kanyadhaan to give away Shweta Rohira, his rakhi sister.
Salman Khan was busy at the time with his other sister Arpita's wedding. But he still made it a point to fly to Goa to take part in the ceremony.
During the wedding Pulkit had shared the story of how Shweta and Salman Khan had built a strong bond over the years.
As a kid, Shweta had barged into Salman Khan's house and offered to tie a rakhi. Salman Khan had asked her if she was serious, she would have to do it every year.
Since then Shweta has been tying rakhi to him without fail and become close to he family over time.
A former freelance journalist, Shweta runs her own boutique in Mumbai.

|Nihalani describes India as a land where people |
put Gangajal on their face. Youtube grab
November 23, 2015, NewsCrunch
Censor Board chief Pahlaj Nihalani has dismissed the uproar on cuts made to the new James Bond movie Spectre saying a few thousand people on Twitter did not know about the real India.
After the Censor Board edited the kissing scenes, a massive Twitter trend #sanskaaribond had emerged lampooning the censorship, triggering even international media coverage.
Speaking to Mumbai Mirror, Pahlaj Nihalani said a few thousand people on Twitter did not know what India was.
He described India as a land where people put Gangajal on their face. "Aap chahte ho aise desh mein sab free ho?" he asked.
Pahlaj Nihalani blamed the uproar on wrong media reporting, which was picked up by social media. He also said the Bond movies released before had also been censored but without causing any controversy.
|Smriti Irani has taken on the media |
similarly in the past as well.
Union Minister Smriti Irani continued with her frosty relations with media by launching a fullscale attack on an Economic Times reporter on Monday.
ET had carried a report stating Smriti Irani had made 5,100 recommendations to admissions at Kendriya Vidyalaya schools, a four-fold jump from her predecessors.
It also note that the government was looking into why only 3,000 of these recommendations had been honoured. The report filed by Anubhuti Vishnoi was based on an unnamed source, who had attended a board meeting on October 30.
In an adjoining opinion column ET had criticised Smriti Irani for continuing the patronage system despite Modi calling for a professional approach in governance.
Taking offense Smriti Irani accused Anubhuti Vishnoi of lying and having an agenda. By tweeting, she said, she was making her contempt for the report public. She also added that readers like her had stopped subscribing to ET because of reporters like Anubhuti Vishnoi.
Smriti Irani has taken on the media similarly in the past as well. When The Hindu reported that the government had made a U-turn on German language, she tweeted saying she did not expect the newspaper to report truth.
The audience at an Aaj Tak show revolted after she paraphrased a question from anchor suggesting it was sexist in nature.

|Karma’s kissing record remains unbroken even after 81 years (video below)|
The Indian censor board has edited kissing scenes in Spectre saying they were too long.
But a movie made in 1933, Karma, had its lead pair Devika Rani and Himanshu Rai kissing for 4 minutes, a record that remains unbroken even after 81 years.
The film came after just two years of Alam Ara, which heralded the talkie era. It was also the first in
But the filmmakers justified the kissing scene saying the English and Hindi movie was meant for an international audience.
It also helped that the lead pair Devika Rani and Himanshu Rai had been married for 3 years when the movie released.
The story is about a princess (played by Devika Rani) ,who falls in love with a neighbouring prince (Himanshu Rai), against the disapproval of her father.
The movie had a runtime of 68 minutes and met with lukewarm reception despite the buzz it created.

Even a proposal from the likes of Deepika Padukone is not enough to get Salman Khan married.
Though in jest, Deepika dropped to her knees and proposed to Salman on the sets of Big Boss 9.
A stung Salman started shouting in a shrill voice, saying “never” even if it was Deepika proposing him.
Deepika was on Big Boss 9 to promote her upcoming movie Tamasha. Her co-star Ranbir Kapoor, who shares an uncomfortable relationship with Salman Khan was missing from the promo.

|Aamir addressed a room full of top journalists and senior politicians drawing |
applause almost continuously (video below)
Bollywood actor Aamir Khan came down heavily against growing intolerance in the country on Monday going to the extent of saying his wife Kiran wanted to move out of the country.
He said she was afraid of opening the newspapers and feared for the future of their child.
There was a growing sense of despondency and depression in him, he added. Aamir was referring to the incidents of violence in the last seven or eight months, which he described as alarming.
Express scion Anant Goenka struggled to steer the conversation, but Aamir had come prepared to say what he wanted to.
While the media reports have highlighted Aamir’s comments on Kiran, his arguments were much more nuanced.
He supported artists returning awards saying everyone had a right to protest in any manner as long as it was non violent. The alarming number of incidents had prompted them to speak out, he said
He said people need assurance that the justice system worked to punish the guilty and elected representatives stood there to protect everyone.
When asked if he would become more articulate to represent moderate Muslims, he said as an Indian he would represent everyone not just Muslims.
“My birth may be in a Muslim household, but I speak for everyone,” Aamir said.

|People have been urged to uninstall app till Snapdeal |
drops Aamir as its brand ambassador
November 24, 2015, NewsCrunch
Bhakts started mobilising to boycott e-commerce player Snapdeal after its brand ambassador Aamir Khan hit out against growing intolerance in the country.
Addressing an audience of journalists during an awards function in New Delhi Aamir went to the extent to saying his wife Kiran wanted to leave the country fearing for the future of their child.
His comments outraged members of various right wing groups, who felt that the Bollywood actor had shamed the country, which had given him stunning success and recognition.
They also pointed out that he had been married twice and both the times to Hindu women, and hence could not call the country intolerant.
In protest, they urged people to uninstall app till Snapdeal drops Aamir as its brand ambassador.
Snapdeal paid Aamir a reported Rs 4 to 5 crore in March to sign him up as its brand ambassador. Aamir has been associated with brands like Coca Cola, Samsung, Godrej, Tata Sky and Titan watches.

The controversial statements made by Aamir Khan was witnessed by five Union Ministers - Venkaiah Naidu, Najma Heptulla, Ravi Shankar Prasad, Rajiv Pratap Rudy and Arun Jaitley.
The ministers had been invited to the Ramnath Goenka Excellence in Journalism Awards event on Monday in
Aamir Khan slammed the growing intolerance in the country and said his wife Kiran Rao was so upset, she even wanted to leave the country with her child.
It raised many an eyebrow and as The Telegraph reported, “…Jaitley walked out while Aamir was in full flow. It was unclear whether the finance minister had a prior appointment.”
As it turned out Jaitley indeed had a prior appointment and left on schedule. His departure, which looked abrupt, had nothing to do with Kiran wanting to quit
Before Express’s Ananth Goenka started his session with Aamir Khan, he handed over the mike to Jaitley saying he would have to leave soon, and asked for his response on celebrities speaking out on issues.
Jaitley said he had no problem with that as long as they were thoughtful and refrained from maverick speeches.

A decade old marriage between Amy Frary and Gray of Norfolk, England, survived despite the husband coming out as a transgender woman.
Gray now goes by the name Melissa.
The couple have three children, two from Amy’s previous relationship.
She was devastated and thought her marriage was over when Gray came out as Melissa. He said he had battled gender identity issues since the age of 12, when he started wearing his sisters’ clothes secretly. He decided to come out when he realised that he could not keep a lid on it any longer.
After he made his confession, Amy overcame her initial pain and decided to do whatever she could to keep her happy family together. She started going out on dates with Melissa after children went to sleep at night, reports Daily Mail.
Once both of them realised that the new arrangement was working, they gently broke the news to the kids, who understood.
Amy and Melissa now plan to renew their wedding vows next year, with both of them celebrating in new bridal gowns.

Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor came out strongly in support of his colleague Aamir Khan, who is under attack for his comments on intolerance in the country.
Ranbir said he had not met any human being, who loved his country more than “Aamir Sir”.
In his heart, Aamir wants to only improve things, which he has been doing through his movies, TV shows and social messages, said Ranbir in an interview to Ibn Live.
Saying that he fully supported Aamir, Ranbir advised people to overlook what he had said if they were upset with it.
He, however, added: “I don’t think it comes from a place it is made out to be.”
Aamir Khan had said on Monday that growing intolerance had made his wife Kiran fearful and think of leaving the country.
Ranbir avoided commenting on Aamir’s specific remarks saying he had not seen the full video.

|Acting Pm Sushma Swaraj is |
now official Number 3
When PM Modi and his senior most minister Rajnath Singh were both out of the country for three days, it was Sushma Swaraj, who functioned as the "Acting Prime Minister."
Modi was away in Malaysia and Singapore, when Rajnath left for his China visit.
The so-called "Acting Prime Minister" status has no constitutional recognition and is only an administrative arrangement.
It is also a relic of the past as in the present-age of real-time communication, the PM is never beyond reach.
The "Acting Prime Minister" can do nothing more than presiding over cabinet meetings.
When Modi went to Brazil in May 2014, his first foreign trip, he did not bother to designate Rajnath Singh as the Minister in charge. A circular to the effect followed only when he went out again, to the US in September 2014.
Of course, the designation has political significance and shows the PM's comfort level with particular ministers. And for Sushma it signifies a remarkable turnaround.
For someone, who was seen as an Advani follower and Modi detractor, she has managed to build a healthy equation with the Prime Minister.
That leaves Arun Jaitley, a close confidante of Modi, at number four position. The cabinet secretariat's website sets out the pecking order among Ministers - Rajnath, Sushma, Jaitley, Venkaiah Naidu, Nitin Gadkari, Manohar Parrikar and Suresh Prabhu, notes reports The Telegraph.
