  • Box Office: All new releases fail, hopefully end of harrowing times for Bollywood

    The month of October has been harrowing for Bollywood with not even a single new release even taking a respectable start at the Box Office. With most of them turning out to be disasters and rest flops (though that doesn’t say much either), the collections have been at the lowest ebb. The story was repeated by last Friday’s releases 31st October, 1:13:7 – Ek Tera Saath, My Father Iqbal, Love Day, Gandhigiri, Biwi.com and Final Cut of Director as well, which have now disappeared without a trace. An arrival in heap hasn’t helped the cause either as audiences chose to completely ignore what was being offered. Instead, they still gave some attention to M.S. Dhoni – The Untold Story by stepping in

  • Tata may find dismissing Mistry easier than his accusations

    By Douglas Busvine and Aditi Shah NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Ratan Tata may have dumped Cyrus Mistry as chairman of his 148-year-old family empire, but will find it harder to expunge the ex-manager's accusations that his acquisitive habits and lack of focus on returns have destroyed billions of dollars in shareholder value. Tata Sons has rejected as baseless and malicious the allegations that Mistry, 48, laid out in a 5-page letter to the board accusing Ratan Tata of backseat driving while in retirement and of thwarting his drive to restructure and refocus the $104 billion Indian conglomerate. Tata has launched a four-month search for a new chairman, and whoever lands the job will inevitably face the same challenges that Mistry felt he was unable to tackle because, he alleged, he lacked the backing of a board that he said answered only to Ratan Tata.

  • Who tried to sabotage the Kaabil trailer release?

    Filmmaker Rakesh Roshan and his son Hrithik are totally flabbergasted by the leakage of the trailer of Kaabil hours before its official release. “And mind you, it was a high-definition print of the leaked trailer. Which means it was professional’s job. This dirty deed was done on Tuesday evening at 7 pm. We were supposed to formally release the trailer on Wednesday morning at 10 am. But after the leakage we preponed the release. We had the trailer officially up on the internet at 8 pm on Tuesday night.” Rakesh Roshan intends to take the strongest possible action against the bootleggers. “We had to quickly change all our elaborate plans. Otherwise the impact of our trailer would have been lost.

  • 5 Must-Read Stories of Young Indian Women Who Started Changing Lives While Still in Their Teens

    Across India, young women are increasingly leading and empowering communities through their innovative work. From creating free organic wigs for cancer patients to educating street kids, these confident young ladies are using their courage and creativity to ensure that India sees a brighter future. They may be young, but their passion for making a difference would inspire even the cynics! Here are 5 stories of young Indian women taking chances and changing lives of people near and far. Get ready to be amazed and inspired by these champions of change! 1. Meera Sharma - Off with their tresses, for cancer! [caption id="attachment_73406" align="aligncenter" width="720"] Meera Sharma[/caption] Photo Source Meera Sharma runs Tangled, an organisation that provides organic wigs to women fighting cancer. It all started when Meera found out that real hair wigs for cancer patients were prohibitively expensive (as high as Rs. 30,000) and that synthetic wigs were itchy and extremely uncomfortable. As the chairperson of the Rotaract Club of Women's Christian College, Chennai, Meera decided to do something about this. Along with her dedicated team at the club, Meera started by donating her own hair for the cause. Next, they partnered with the salon chain, Green Trends, and a wig-maker, Raj Hair Intl. Pvt. Ltd, who agreed to make natural hair wigs for them at a price of Rs. 4,500 per wig. These wigs are then distributed for free to the underprivileged cancer patients of the Cancer Institute. The cost of wig-making is borne by the sponsors whose generous contributions make this possible. Today, Tangled is working across India to provide free, organic wigs to cancer patients and boost their self-confidence. 2. Anjali Chandrashekhar - When a brush is mightier than the sword! [caption id="attachment_73402" align="aligncenter" width="1600"] Anjali Chandrashekhar[/caption] Photo Source An aspiring industrial designer with passion for painting and sculpture, Anjali Chandrashekhar was just 16 when she raised funds for causes such as natural calamities, child abuse, and rehabilitation of underprivileged children through her artistic creations. In 2008, she used her artwork to raise around 3 lakh rupees at an International Diabetes Charity and used that money to provide insulin and medication to many poor diabetic children. She also won the third prize at the United Nations Poster for Peace Contest for her disarmament posters,  Break Free and Cutting a Peace Deal. A firm believer in the philosophy that art transcends barriers of age, language and literacy, 22-year-old Anjali has been working silently on her global social project, Picture It, for over a decade. Through it, she has been using her art to raise funds for various health, humanitarian and environmental causes. 3. Avani Singh - A rickshaw of hope! [caption id="attachment_73409" align="aligncenter" width="676"] Avani Singh[/caption] Photo Source A Delhi girl, Avani founded Ummeed , a program that trains women from the slums of Delhi to become taxi and rickshaw (electric rickshaws) drivers, when she was just 17. She started this initiative with a single electric rickshaw, donated by the local manufacturer, Green Wheels. To find a driver, Avani collaborated with the Delhi-based NGO CEQUIN to put out a call for volunteers in the Jamia area of the city. Soon, she had her first e-rickshaw driver, Kohinoor, who was delighted by the opportunity. Today, Ummeed is giving many women a way to earn both a living and a level of physical and social mobility that was previously nearly impossible. Other than training underprivileged women to drive, it also  provides and maintains the e-rickshaws. 4. Varsha Varghese - For the love of words! [caption id="attachment_73414" align="aligncenter" width="1200"] Varsha Varghese (left) with co-founders, Rahul and Priyanka[/caption] Photo Source It was Varsha Varghese’s love for books and her experience as a teaching volunteer in Make A Difference (MAD) that made her initiate the  The Wordsworth Project. Along with college batchmates, Priyanka Roychowdhary and Rahul Sreekumar, Varsha decided to improve language competency in children. The trio firmly believed that since language is the medium through which all subjects are taught, better language skills would directly lead to better learning outcomes. The Wordsworth Project works to create interactive reading spaces in low resource schools and learning centres, by equipping them with books catering specifically to the children’s reading level. Mindful that books alone cannot make language accessible, they have also recruited and trained volunteers who teach kids basic grammar through interactive activities. The volunteers also help map the individual progress of each child’s progress to help the team analyse the outcome of their efforts and take the necessary steps. 5. Rashi Anand - A better childhood for street kids! [caption id="attachment_73438" align="aligncenter" width="1200"] Rashi Anand[/caption] Photo Source Left/Right Seeing the plight of children on the streets of Delhi compelled Rashi Anand to make a difference in their lives. Worried about how vulnerable these kids were to exploitation, Rashi set up  Lakshyam, an NGO working for street and underprivileged children in Delhi when she was just 18. Her next step was to set up a Toy Library programme that provided pictorial books and educational toys to street kids. Till date, this programme has donated books and toys to over two lakh underprivileged children in India. Today, Lakshyam has established several schools (called Sakshyam) for street kids in the slum areas of Delhi. The organization also conducts workshops with street children under flyovers, in red light areas and at railway stations to provide basic education and create awareness about issues like drug addiction. Thanks to Rashi's efforts, Lakshyam has also expanded its work to states like Jharkhand, Uttarakhand, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. Most of us nurture a passion but few translate it into action. These 5 young women didn't just dream about making a difference, they also built an effective social venture around a cause they were passionate about. Old or young, these go-getters are an inspiration to us all! Also Read: These 5 Indian-Origin Teens Are Among the Most Talented in The World Like this story? Have something to share?
