    Indian immigration officials turned back  noted Pakistani singer Ustad Rahat Fateh Ali Khan from Hyderabad International Airport on Thursday.

    Rahat had flown in on an Etihad flight from Abu Dhabi to take part in a musical programme in the city.

    He had overlooked the rule that Pakistani citizens have to enter India either through Delhi or Mumbai airports.

    Deccan Chronicle reports that the Pak singer was routed to Mumbai and also quoted the event organisers saying he would still make it to the programme though with some delay.

    This is the second time Rahat has been embroiled in a controversy in an Indian airport.

    In 2011, Rahat had been detained at the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) airport in New Delhi for carrying US $1.24 lakh in undeclared foreign currency.

    A nephew of Pakistani singing legend Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Rahat is a top Bollywood playback singer and has several hit numbers to his credit.

    Bharatiya Janata Party MP Satyapal Singh was caught travelling in an even numbered vehicle on Friday   Satyapal Singh, who is also the former Police commissioner of Mumbai, was strangely unaware that Delhi had switched to odd/even traffic rule from today.

    Bharatiya Janata Party MP Satyapal Singh was caught travelling in an even-number vehicle in Delhi on Friday.

    Satyapal Singh, who is also the former Police commissioner of Mumbai, was strangely unaware that Delhi had switched to odd/even traffic rule from today.

    Or, he was perhaps hoping that he would be able to use his VVIP status to intimidate cops and get away.

    A Delhi police constable stopped Satyapal Singh’s vehicle at the India Gate. A Hindustan Times photographer Ravi Choudhary was nearby to click a few memorable photos, which sparked off interest on social media.

    While many violators of the new odd/even traffic scheme were fined Rs 2,000, Satyapal Singh was lucky. The Delhipolice constable gave him a leaflet that explained the new rules and let him go without fine.

    After retiring from service, Satyapal Singh won 16th Lok Sabha elections from Baghpat in Uttar Pradesh. As an MP, he is not exempt from Delhi’s Odd/even traffic rule.

    Among the Parliament officials only speakers, deputy speakers and leaders of opposition feature in the list of VVIPs exempted from the rule.

    Pooja Bedi daughter’s Aalia Ebrahim got trolled on an entertainment website recently and her response is mature beyond her 18 years.


    In a nutshell, she says she is more than her breasts; showing her cleavage   does not mean she is giving consent.

    On Tuesday, Miss Malini published 10 slightly racy photos of Aalia Ebrahim saying she was stunning and Bollywood ready.

    The feature became controversial as many objected to Miss Malini publishing raunchy photos of a young girl. The website defended saying Aalia Ebrahim was 18.

    A few women passed nastycomments questioning Aalia Ebrahim’s intelligence and calling her names. One of them said Aalia Ebrahim was not Bollywood ready but “porn ready” and “bed ready”.
    Aalia Ebrahim gave a fitting response in her blog.

    She said she liked the Miss Malini feature but was upset by the comments. She wanted to ignore it, but was so annoyed, she had to respond to it.

    She wrote:

    "If my cleavage is visible, it does not mean I am giving consent, it does not mean I am “asking for it.” I am more than my breasts and it is unfair to let them define me."

    Aalia Ebrahim, daughter of Pooja Bedi and Farhan Ebrahim Furniturewalla, was born 1997. She has a brother, Omar Ebrahim, and her parents divorced in 2003.

    India’s most expensive lawyer Ram Jethmalani is defending Delhi CM Kejriwal against the defamation suit filed by Finance Minster Arun Jaitley, free of cost.

    Jaitley has slapped both criminal and civil suits on Kejriwal for making allegations of corruption in DDCA when he was heading it.

    In an interview with Scroll, Jethmalani says  Kejriwal got in touch requesting him to represent him. Jethmalani promptly said: "Yes, I will surely represent you."


    Jethmalani, who reportedly charges Rs 25 lakh per appearance, is  India’s highest paid lawyer. But he told Scroll that 90% of the work he does is pro bono that is in public spirit, without charging clients.

    “I am not charging any fee from Kejriwal and that’s because his government itself is so poor,” he told Scroll.


    He says Kejriwal has a good case as Jaitley consciously shut his eyes to the fraud in the DDCA.

    He dismissed Jaitley as a lawyer, who has not appeared in any big case, but still has 10 times more bank balance than him.

    While there is a lot of concern about rape, there is hardly any discussion on the sexual harassment Indian women face in their daily life.

    A group of Delhi university women give an idea on the routine ordeal they are subjected to in an Old Delhi Films video: My First Experience of Sexual Harassment.

    Children are not spared; many had to cope with rampaging men in their most innocent years, as young as six or seven years.

    The molesters can come in any form - from servants to strangers.

    So many of these experiences involve men flashing, masturbating before targets - there seem to be a pattern here.

    The experience leaves all of them scared and scarred. But as they say, the only way out is standing up to the creeps.

    A must watch.

    Thanks to a tip off and alert forces, a major terror attack has been foiled in Punjab, which had earlier suffered a similar incident at Gurdaspur.

    The Pakistani terrorists, who came to attack Pathankot airbase, found that Indian soldiers were fully ready to take on them

    They found NSG commandos, Army and Air Force SWAT teams and helicopters waiting for them.

    A PTI report says Army had positioned two columns (comprising about 50 men) and a team of Special Forces at the Pathankot Air Force station prior to the attack.

    The terrorists still engaged Indian troops for more than five hours in fierce gun battle, which saw four of them and three IAF men getting killed.

    This was one terror attack that almost happened with a prior announcement.

    Reports that a few armed men had abducted Punjab Superintendent of Police Salwinder Singh had put the authorities on full alert that terrorists could be on loose.

    A team of NSG commandos had been rushed to Punjabon Thursday night itself.

    But the authorities faced a daunting task.  A border state, Punjab, has too many targets for terrorists.

    Punjab has frontline IAF bases in Pathankot, Adampur, Halwara and Bathinda and army presence at Jalandhar, Pathankot, Amritsar, Bathinda and Patiala.

    As events unfolded, the attack happened at Pathankot.

    The Indian officials have several serious questions to answer:

    How could the terrorists be on the run for nearly 24 hours after the abduction of a police officer of the SP rank?

    How could they get so close to the Pathankot airbase and even penetrate it. IAF says terrorists could not get access to the technical area where the MIGs are kept. This is an admission that they were close enough.

    Why did it take more than five hours to pacify a terror attack, which did not have the surprise element?

    Even the report of the abduction of SP needs to be closely ascertained. Why would the terrorists  abduct a police officer drawing attention to themselves? And, what made them let him go, knowing that he would alert authorities?

    Like Indian officials, did they also bungle up?

    Many couple disagree that sex tapers off after kids come into the family picture.

    More than half of the couple, who were interviewed for a survey, said they were having more and better quality sex after having children.

    Parenting site Channel Mum studied 1,118 couples with children to arrive at the surprise finding.

    Men said their partner's post-birth fuller figure turned them on.


    But women were found to be a little fussy. They worried that their partner did not fancy them any more and felt they were 'too fat for sex.'


    Four in ten said they did not want their breasts touched by their man because they are breastfeeding.


    A few women also strikingly tried to use bed-time activity as a workout to shed baby weight.


    Daily Mail, which summarised the study findings, said on average new mums and dads waited for nearly two months to have sex again.

    One of top politicians of the country Nitish Kumar has declared that his assets are worth just Rs 58 lakh.  He has cash, deposits in banks, movable and immovable properties, but together they amount to less than Rs 60 lakh – the size of a middle class flat in any big Indian city today.

    One of top politicians of the country Nitish Kumar has declared that his assets are worth just Rs 58 lakh.

    He has cash, deposits in banks, movable and immovable properties, but together they amount to less than Rs 60 lakh – the size of a middle class flat in any big Indian city today.

    Nitish has had made it mandatory for himself and his ministers to declare their assets annually since 2010.

    Nitish also disclosed that his son Nishant, an engineer who studied at BIT Mesra, is worth a little over Rs 2 crore. Nishant keeps a low profile and has never dabbled with politics.

    People, who know Nitish Kumar well, would not be surprised by his asset details.

    He married Manju Sinha, a teacher, in 1973 but could never support her as he was a struggling politician and had no source of income. She continued to work as a school teacher to fend for herself and her son.

    The couple’s relationship had come under strain.

    She was so bitter with Nitish over his inability to provide for the family, she refused to move into the CM’s bungalow till she died of illness in 2007, notes journalist Sankarshan Thakur in his books The Brothers Bihari.

    In early ‘80s Nitish had thought of quitting politics and becoming a PWD contractor to make a living.

    He had lost a string of elections till he became an MLA in1985.

    His rise was meteoric after that, and in little over a decade, he had become a union Minister in  Vajpayee government.

    Alka Lamba takes photoshop route to support party programme

    January 3, 2015, NewsCrunch

    When AAP asked its Delhi MLAs to promote awareness about the odd/even traffic scheme, it did not expect them to resort to photoshop.

    That is what the party's Chandni Chowk MLA Alka Lamba stands accused of.

    She posted a photo on Twitter on Saturday holding up a placard that read -  ‘Dilli ka hai ghut ta dum, milkar karein pradushan kam (Delhi is suffocating, let’s join hands to reduce pollution)’.

    The image created a storm as many of her supporters pointed out that it was an old photo taken during Delhi University elections and had been modified to support the new traffic initiative.

    Though Alka Lamba deleted the photo, AAP leaders think she has been callous about an important party programme. They may even take action against her, reports The Hindustan Times.

    “I really felt bad about it," Gadkari said with a chuckle (Video below)

    January 3, 2015, NewsCrunch

    Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari made an offensive remark against veteran actress Asha Parekh on Saturday by claiming she had climbed 12 floors of his building to lobby for a Padma Bhushan award.

    Gadkari was addressing a public gathering in Nagpur on Saturday and was joking about how giving out awards had become a `headache`. He was being chased by the award aspirants seeking his recommendation, he pointed out.

    As the audience laughed at his statements, he continued: "Asha Parekh came to me for Padma Bhushan. The lift of my apartment had broken down, so she climbed 12th floors…”

    “I really felt bad about it," Gadkari said with a chuckle.


    Gadkari enjoys a good conversation and especially likes to speak to his home audience and is known to get carried away.

    In May, this year he had claimed that he stored his urine in a large can to nourish his plants. Even this memorable statement was made before his home audience.

    P M Modi came under heavy criticism for an ill-timed speech on Yoga on Sunday.

    He made a speech on Yoga in Bangalore even as security troops battled highly-trained terrorists at Pathnkot airbase in Punjab.

    The over 30 hour gun-battle ended with the killing of six terrorists. Seven NSG personnel also lost their lives.

    Modi went to Bangalore on Sunday after inaugurating the Indian Science Congress in Mysore.

    He was scheduled to inaugurate the International Conference on Frontiers in Yoga Research and its applications.


    The conference had been organised by Vivekananda Kendra of Dr H R Narendra whom Modi considers as his Yoga guru.

    In his nearly 20 minute long speech Modi recalled Swami’s Vivekananda’s vision and his own contribution to make Yoga universally popular.

    But his speech failed to impress many of his even ardent supporters, who said Modi was better off monitoring the tense security situation than extolling the virtues of yoga.

    Former J & K CM Omar Abdullah was among the first to point out that Modi had got the mood of the nation wrong. One Twitter user compared Modi to George Bush, who was seen paralysed moments after 26/11 attack took place.

    Some said more than the speech it was Modi’s series of tweets on Yoga, which had upset them, as they showed his priorities.

    More than half of British pilots say they have experienced laser attacks by pranksters, says a new survey.

    The prank involves shining a hand-held laser at the cockpit of a plane, which is either preparing to land or take off.

    Pilots say they are distracted or even blinded by the light depending on its intensity and that puts passengers to grave risk.

    Worse, the menace seems to be spreading with the growing popularity of hand-held lasers, which are used in presentations.

    In a survey of 810 pilots by British Airline Pilots Association, 55% of respondents said they had experienced a laser attack in the past 12 months.


    The growing threat of lasers have prompted calls for the devices to be treated as offensive weapons, the Sunday Times reported.
