• Drishyam review: It's a promising murder mystery weakened by Ajay Devgn - Firstpost

    Drishyam, a Hindi remake of Jeethu Joseph's Malayalam film, opens with a declaration that it is based on an original story by Joseph.

Kapoor bought the rights to remake Higashino’s fantastic murder mystery in Hindi. Meanwhile, far away from Kapoor’s Andheri office, Joseph adapted the novel’s plot for a Malayalam film starring Mohanlal, and set it in an Indian village.

  • India wins patent war on hair loss formula - The Economic Times

    NEW DELHI: India scored an important success when it fully protected its traditional knowledge by stalling a leading UK-based laboratory's move to patent a medicinal composition containing turmeric, pine bark and green tea for treating hair loss. The move comes just days after India foiled a similar attempt by US-based consumer goods giant Colgate-Palmolive from patenting a mouthwash formula containing herbal extracts. The vigilance of the Traditional Knowledge Digital Library (TKDL) of the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) helped protect the Indian products as the council in its submission to the European Patent Office managed to prove that turmeric, pine bark and green tea were being used as a treatment for hair loss in Indian systems of medicine like Ayurveda and Unani since ancient times.

  • Why are men, in their early 30s, losing hair?

    Written by Anuradha Mascarenhas | Published:August 1, 2015 12:00 am Doctors say that the major reasons for hair loss are iron deficiency, lack of sunlight (vitamin D-3), stress, irregular diets, hormonal changes and related diseases like thyroid and diabetes.

  • Missing plane draws eyes to land of molten lava and killer sharks

    By Joe Brock SAINT-DENIS, Reunion (Reuters) - As experts on the Indian Ocean island Reunion studied plane debris for clues in the search for missing flight MH370, scientist Nicolas Villeneuve was making his own discovery: the island's volcano was about to erupt. Reunion, a part of France that lies in the Indian Ocean around 370 miles east of Madagascar, gained newfound notoriety last week when a beach cleaner stumbled across a barnacled piece of an airplane wing known as a flaperon. The wreckage was flown on Friday to mainland France where experts hope forensic analysis will uncover if it was part of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, which vanished without trace in March 2014 along with 239 passengers and crew.

    Korean auto major Hyundai has made a good habit of launching at least one product before the start of the festive season that grabs headlines and gives it enough lift to sail through the year. Two years ago it was the Grand i10, last year was Elite i20 and this year it is its long in the making Creta SUV. It is a fluke of sorts that Hyundai and Maruti that best know the pulse of the market somehow missed the compact SUV space. Clearly this is an area where Hyundai scores and Creta is no exception.
