    Petoo, an online food delivery company in Bangalore, likes to employ engineers to deliver food.

    It reportedly has 50 delivery boys in the city and 20 of them, that is 40%, come with engineering degrees.

    Twenty of the other delivery boys are graduates and only 10 have studied less.

    Petoo says it prefers educated delivery boys as they can promoted to managers.

    To make the job appealing it pays Rs 20,000 as monthly salary besides allowances, reports Bangalore Mirror. That would be higher than the starting salaries for many in software or engineering jobs.

    Mirror also interviewed a few engineer-delivery boys who said they loved what they are doing.

    The job woes of engineering graduates have been seriously underreported.

    The software boom let to a spurt in engineering colleges and there was a huge rush to get the coveted degrees. The assumption was that whatever stream you opted for, you could end up in the software industry.

    The quality of the education in most of these colleges is also suspect.

    Vast numbers of engineering graduates of dubious quality are now looking for jobs that are not there.

    Many of them land in Bangaloreand end up as delivery boys, among other things.

    Delhi’s Rajiv Chowk emerged on Monday as a key battle ground for AAP and anti-AAP forces on social media.

    There was a tense anticipation on how Rajiv Chowk, a key node on Delhi Metro, would hold up on Monday, the first working day of Delhi’s odd/even scheme.

    A photo, which showed a completely jam-packed Rajiv Chowk, went viral. 

    This was at variance with many commuters reporting that there was nothing unusual in the footfall at the station. They also posted images to challenge the viral photo.

    The truth came out when it was pointed out by credible sources that the viral photo had been taken during October 2014 and had been published by The Hindustan Times.

    But odd/even rule’s true test would come when the two wheelers go off roads in the next phase. That is when the Delhi’s pubic transport would come under real strain.

    The photographs are part of Kelly's #YearInSpace series under which he has been posting mesmerising space photographs.

    Kelly calls his photographs "Earth Art" as his landscapes resemble beautiful abstract paintings.

    A lion was rescued in the coastal city of Jafrabad in Amreli District of Gujarat after it jumped to sea.

    The lion was spotted on a rocky stretch of the beach and officials are trying to figure out how it got there.

    As a crowd gathered, the lion looking disoriented jumped into the sea to find an escape route.

    While lions are good swimmers, it would have been a little optimistic for this lion to try to cross the Arabian sea all by itself.


    Luckily, for it, the water was shallow and it managed not to drown.



    Forest department officials, who were alerted, came and rescued the lion after tranquilising it.

    Chris Gayle's on air comments to Channel 10 reporter Mel McLaughlin have drawn criticism even from those who don't know what cricket is.

    Th ace batsman's remarks to the Australian sports journalist, during Big Bash League on Monday, went viral and grabbed coverage from publications across continents.

    Playing against Hobart Hurricanes, the West Indian hit a hurricane 15-ball 41. After he got out Mel McLaughlin caught up with him and on live camera Gayle said:

     “Your eyes are beautiful, hopefully, we can win this game and then we can have a drink after as well. Don’t blush baby.”

    Gayle's remarks, which indeed made Mel McLaughlin blush, were widely slammed as sexist.

    But many also defended him saying he was probably just joking. As the video below shows, Gayle broke into a good laugh after making Mel McLaughlin blush.

    That is the kind of behaviour, which comes naturally to a Caribbean. And as NewsCrunch had noted earlier, Gayle has never been coy about the steamer side of his party loving life.

    For Mel McLaughlin Gayle comment was an instant ticket to limelight across the world.

    In 2013, she joined Network Ten to host match day coverage of the Big Bash League.

    She had previously worked for Fox Sports where she hosted multiple football shows, while also being a regular on Fox Sports News.

    Martyr Capt (Hon) Fateh Singh's daughter Madhu Radha Katal led a huge gathering in paying homage to the fallen hero at Jhanda Gujran, his native village.

    Capt (Hon) Fateh Singh, who was killed by the militants in Pathankot, was cremated with full military honours on Monday.

    In a touching scene, Fateh Singh’s daughter Madhu Radha Katal lent her shoulder to her father’s body at the crematorium.

    Madhu Radha Katal teaches English at a college in Mhow, Madhya Pradesh and had come to the Pathankot air force base for Christmas holidays.

    Speaking to The Tribune, a despondent Madhu said she heard a loud noise, following which power supply to their quarter at the air base was shut off.

    She said she got scared and crawled under a bed. She was informed after a few minutes that her father had been admitted to the Military Hospital in critical condition.

    Fateh Singh, a former international-level shooter joined the Air Force after retiring from the Army.

    He is survived by his wife Shobha Thakur, daughter Madhu and two sons, Gurdeep Rana and Nitin Thakur.

    Justice Thakur has been an early supporter of the odd/even rule
    January 5, 2015, NewsCrunch

    In a huge show of support of support to Delhi's odd/even scheme, Chief Justice of India T S Thakur has been sharing car with brother judge A K Sikri to commute to office.

    Both the judges have been carpooling since January 1, when the Delhi's odd/even traffic rule  came into effect to help the city combat pollution.

    Justice T S Thakur has an odd number car while Justice A K has an even number complement and both the judges live close by, reports The Indian Express.

    Supreme Court judges are exempt from the odd/even restriction, but Justice Thakur has decided to set a personal example by following it voluntarily. That should discourage other VIPs such as BJP MP Satyapal Singh, from seeking informal waivers flaunting their exalted status.

    Justice Thakur has been an early supporter of the odd/even rule though he has said Delhi should do more to get pollution under control.

    It was, in fact, his quick support to the scheme  that helped the Delhi government roll it out without much difficulty. Till Justice Thakur came out in support at a media gathering on December 6, Union Home Ministry was non-committal and Police  Commissioner Bassi had said there was not enough staff to enforce it.

    The abrupt resignation of Malini Parthasarthy as editor of The Hindu brings to an end to her 11-month stewardship of the paper and adds to its sense of instability.

    The abrupt resignation of Malini Parthasarthy as editor of The Hindu brings to an end her 11-month stewardship of the paper and adds to its sense of instability.

    The decision to launch Mumbai edition and certain financial decisions reportedly led to the board of G Kasturi and Sons to lose faith in her.

    Her departure also brought to the fore, the family feuds that have rocked and undermined the cherished media institution over the last five years.

    In its 137 years of existence, The Hindu has seen just 15 editors and four of them in last four years.

    The Hindu editors typically held their posts for decades providing enviable stability till the instability phase started.

    N Ram resisted calls to quit in 2012, after crossing the retirement age. To prevent a fellow family member ascending the chair, he brought in Siddharth Varadarajan, the paper’s Delhi-based bureau chief.

    Malini Parthasarthy, who was then an executive editor, quit in protest against the elevation of a professional junior to her.

    Siddharth Varadarajan was fired in 2013 and N Ram openly accused him of violating company’s values, among other things.

    N Ravi came out of retirement and took over as editor in chief, while Malini Parthasarthy returned as editor. Both the relatives ran the show together.

    Last year, N Ravi quit and Malini Parthasarthy gained the sole charge of the newspaper.

    Her short but tumultuous leadership saw many senior journalists quitting – P Sainath, Rahul Pandita and Praveen Swamy, among them.

      Ancient Indian attitude to sex was shaped by their higher
    consciousness - Sadguru on Kamastutra video below

    January 5, 2016, NewsCrunch

    Kamasutra is one of the most famous exports of India. Log in to Amazon and search for the ancient Indian sex treatise.

    There is an entire industry out there peddling from umpteen translations to bizarre memorabilia, all promising sexual nirvana.

    In an interesting but somewhat naive lecture, that has gone viral, Sadguru Jaggi Vasudev offers his perspective on Kamasutra.

    Ancient Indians did not see it as pornography. They saw sex as one of the bodily functions and were not obsessed with it.

    The key to grasp the ancient Indian attitude to sex is to understand the higher consciousness they had achieved as a culture. They could look at everything the way it was, accepting it and with out judging it.

    But this changed when the Western sense of morality creeped in. Morality differentiates between good and bad and prescribes that people stay away from bad.

    It is the nature of people to do and think about what they are prohibited from doing. That is why, we spend most of our life thinking about sex and money, instead of just assigning them their rightful but limited place in life.

    In this context, Kamasutra may appear as porn, says Sadguru Jaggi Vasudev.

    Sadguru Jaggi Vasudev is an Indian yogi, mystic, philanthropist and author. He is the founder of Isha Foundation, a non-profit organisation which offers yoga programs around the world, including India, United States, Great Britain, Lebanon, Singapore, Canada, Malaysia, Uganda, China, Nepal and Australia.

    January 6, 2015, NewsCrunch

    A new video from Kitteyzenkane tells the story of Rupesh Pawar, an 'engineer' who gave up a cushy corporate life to slog it out as a police constable on Mumbai streets.

    Rupesh Pawar graduated from Bombay University and worked at Ryder software for two years and later at ING Vyshya for a year.

    His father, who suffered a kidney failure, asked Rupesh Pawar to join the police.

    His father was in the police; his brother and sister are also constables. So, police work is a family tradition.

    Rupesh Pawar got used to his job, which he describes as of the lowest rank in the police. It comes with low pay and punishing hours.

    But his wife is happy that he gives them time and does not bring home the work tension.

    Rupesh Pawar has two cute kids, whose education, he says is his top priority.

    He is happy he is cop. Rupesh Pawar says police are important to society and he is glad he is part of them.

    The video does not identify him as an engineer, though; but the discussions on the video perceive him as one.

    January 6, 2015, NewsCrunch

    Ramesh Thete, a Dalit IAS officer in Madhya Pradesh, plans to go on dharna in Bhopal to protest against alleged discrimination.  


    Media reports say he has announced that he would join a dharna organised by Dalit Adivasi Forum (DAF) on January 11 in Bhopal.


    Thete reportedly faces a case in connection with alleged illegal disposal of land in Ujjain, where he  worked as an additional commissioner two years ago. The government has given permission to prosecute him.

    Thete says charges against him are an upper castes conspiracy and has written protest letters to the chief minister and the chief secretary.

    Indian Express quoted DAF leader Mohan Patil saying complaints were pending against 18 upper caste IAS and IPS officers in MP but sanction to prosecute was given only in Thete’s case.

    Thete, an officer of 1993 batch, had been suspended in 2002 after he was allegedly caught while accepting a bribe of Rs 1 lakh. He was serving as director of employment and training.

    He challenged his suspension successfully and got reinstated in 2011. Thete then threatened to immolate himself if he was not promoted on par with his batch mates.

    Tinder, which is already a market leader among dating apps in India, has set up an office in Delhi, its first international base outside USA.

    Taru Kapoor, who has been overseeing Indiaoperations, will shift to Delhi.

    Tinder hired Taru in August 2015 to boost its India presence. An IIT Delhi alumnus, she also has an MBA from HarvardBusinessSchool. She spent two years as an investment analyst with Sequoia Capital India and another two years as an associate at the Boston Consulting Group.


    CEO Sean Rad describes Indiaas one of the core markets of Tinder in a statement, reports The Times of India. Taru says Indiahas the largest, most dynamic and vibrant populations in the world.


    What this means is in the coming days Tinder will get more marketing visibility and may be some local customisation including Indian language support. Along the way, it will also try to monetise its reach. It already sells a premium service.

    Tinder is present in 196 countries in 30 languages and makes 26 million matches daily. But it is mum on its Indiausers, who seem to be in striking number and growing fast.


    In November Tinder had said its Indiadownloads had grown by 400% but without sharing the absolute numbers.

    Half of India’s huge population is under 35 and a good chunk of them use smartphone, which is Tinder’s target audience.


    US dotcoms, which are banned from China, find an attractive alternative in India. Facebook has the second largest base in India after USA. Twitter, Linked and others have grown rapidly.


    Tinder wants to follow their footsteps.

    The Baahubali makers have released a behind-the-scene video of visual effects that went into the shooting of the famous bull fight scene in the movie.

    To develop the scene, the filmmakers used the lived-through animation technique, which was made popular by James Cameron movie Avatar.

    The actor enacts the scene with props, which is captured on camera in close detail. The scene is then built around it through visual effects to give it an ultra-realistic feel.

    In the video, Rana Daggubati, who plays Bhallala Deva, fights the ferocious bull, which in reality, is a prop held up by Prabhas.

    So, when you see Rana testing his strength against the animal, it is Prabhas on the other side pushing him back.

    In the studios, Prabhas was replaced with an animated bull.

    Why Prabhas? Perhaps only he had the strength and the imposing physique to match Rana.

    Baahubali used around 5000 VFX shots, which were developed by 16 different studios.

    The bullfight scene was developed by Tau films of Malaysia.

    Baahubali makers had earlier released behind-the-scene video of waterfall scenes which were developed by Makuta.
