• Yahoo Movies Review: Phantom

    Cast: Saif Ali Khan, Katrina Kaif, Sabyasachi Chakraborty, Mohammad Zeeshan Ayyub Direction: Kabir Khan Rating: *** Kabir Khan is on a roll. Well, almost. Phantom is a well-intentioned film – the canvas is appropriate, the plot is interesting and he has put together a seemingly reliable cast – however, the first half is too simplistic and seems hastily put together; the director manages to salvage a sizeable chunk in the second half but it still falls short on many accounts. I guess having sampled a robust espionage tale like Baby (directed by Neeraj Pandey) earlier this year; Phantom seems like a feeble attempt at replicating the thrill.

  • Protestor's death fuels fresh tension in Indian state

    A court in Gujarat ordered an inquiry Friday into the death of a protestor in police custody, in a case that could further exacerbate tensions in the Indian prime minister's home state. The family's lawyer B. M. Mangukiya told reporters the court had ordered an investigation "after going through the second postmortem report that suggested the youth died of shock and brain haemorrhage due to head injuries". The protesters were demanding that the Patidar caste, one of the state's most affluent communities many of whom carry the name Patel, receive the same preferential treatment as some lower castes on government jobs and university places.

  • Why has India blocked mobile internet messaging? - BBC News

    A curfew has been imposed and the army has been called in - and now authorities have turned off mobile internet access in some parts of Gujarat. Reports differ on how extensive the block is and what exactly it covers, but it appears that mobile messaging has been cut off in the main city of Ahmedabad and other cities.

    PETER Mukerjea was once voted the class joker in his year at Harvard. An investor in the INX group and once a close family friend of the Mukerjeas says when Peter met Indrani, he was smitten. "You look at him now and think how could a man who helmed Star India with such professional, cold, logic could turn into such a smitten fool." Overnight, Mukerjea apparently turned into what his friends now call a little schoolboy in love.

  • Rare images document the centuries-long history of Africans in India

    Almost a hundred years before Shivaji began to consolidate his empire, Malik Ambar of Bijapur led an army of 50,000 soldiers, many of whom were Marathi cavalry soldiers, against the Mughals. Malik Ambar, who was born in Ethiopia and brought as a slave to India around 1570, was one member of India’s once-thriving community of African immigrants. Like other Africans in India, he is now only rarely remembered. Dr Sylviane Diouf, director of the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, has been working on this exhibition, for some years now,  in association with Ken Robbins, who co-wrote a book on African elites in India.

  • Compensate PSBs for Jan-Dhan Yojana: RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan - The Economic Times

  • ISRO's Naughty Boy | Ajay Sukumaran | Aug 28,2015

    It's now twice in a row that India's space agency has got its heavy-lift rocket to behave, the one its scientists call the 'naughty boy'. As ISRO's chairman A S Kiran Kumar put it, Thursday's flawless flight of the Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV) D6 showed that the rocket's first successful flight last year, using a homegrown cryogenic propulsion system, was no fluke. A heavy-lift vehicle has been the missing piece in ISRO's ambitions for years.
