  • Sucking it, licking it: Raj Kundra scolds SRK for 'disgusting' ad on Twitter - Firstpost

    New Frooti Life's new ad seems to assume that Toy Story-like characters prancing around a giant mango will bowl kids over and make them harangue their parents to buy them the mango drink . It has a mango playing Gulliver to tiny GI Joe like humans, one slightly resembling Shah Rukh Khan. The humans try to push the mango, tie it to a car, make an elephant pull it, hit it, but the mango is immovable and unfazed -- sort of like Baba Ramdev. This is when GI Joe SRK comes to the rescue and chants the ill-tempered mango world's version of 'Khulja Sim Sim', as in the immortal words: "Aam suck it'a, lick it'a".

  • India closer to biggest tax reform in decades

    By Rajesh Kumar Singh NEW DELHI (Reuters) - A major tax reform cleared a key hurdle in the parliament on Wednesday, when the Lok Sabha passed a bill to replace a patchwork of levies by the central and state governments with a single nationwide sales tax. One of major reforms proposed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the goods and services tax (GST) has been hailed by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley as the biggest reform in India since independence in 1947. Approval in the Lok Sabha marks an important victory for Modi's ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), but the bill still must pass in the Rajya Sabha.
