  • Sunny Leone Recreates Zeenat Aman’s Hot Look!

Elaborating on the look, director Bobby Khan says, “The way SSS captured Zeenatji’s beauty was beautiful. When I bounced the idea off Sunny, she immediately approved.

  • Arvind Kejriwal may be removed from top Aam Aadmi Party post? Yogendra Yadav, Prashant Bhushan in row

    Serious differences appeared to have cropped up in Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), including over Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s role in the party, with the internal Lokpal pointing to two camps emerging within top leadership and asking the party to consider ‘one-man, one-post’ arrangement. Barely weeks after AAP convenor and Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal stormed to power, the letter by Admiral Ramdas, a former Navy chief and party’s internal Lokpal, sent to the Political Advisory Committee before the national executive meeting last week, recommended that any criticism on inner-party democracy needed to be dealt with by an independent group which carries out an internal audit. Ramdas emphasised on more clarity on whether Kejriwal can handle dual posts of Delhi chief minister and National Convenor.

  • India go from butterfingers to electric-heels in the field

    By Sudipto Ganguly MUMBAI (Reuters) - It is one of the accepted truths of international cricket that fielding is not India's particular forte but Mahendra Singh Dhoni's men have taken bold steps towards altering that reputation at the World Cup. Too often in the past, India's fast bowlers have been liabilities in the field, while during the recent test series in Australia the team's close-in catching was simply woeful. The infusion of some young, athletic fielders had already led to an improvement in India's performance in that aspect of limited-overs matches but the team took it to an even higher level last Sunday, outshining even South Africa. India did enough with both bat and ball during their 130-run win in their second World Cup match but what might have surprised South Africa, known for their agility and tight fielding, was the athleticism of their opponents.

  • Sukanya Samriddhi not really helpful in tax saving

    Returns from the Sukanya Samriddhi Scheme will now be fully exempt from Income Tax. This makes it the only other instrument under Section 80C, other than Public Provident Fund (PPF) to be Exempt Exempt Exempt (EEE). Another point to consider is that for the year 2014-15 the interest has been fixed at 9.1%, which is higher than the 8.7 offered by PPF. It is useful only for those who want an extremely safe instrument to save for their daughters,'' says Manikaran Singal, a certified financial planner.
