  • Why the love scene between Tamannah and Prabhas in Baahubali is not 'Rape' - Firstpost

    Shiva (Prabhas) chances upon a mask and gazing at its features, he imagines the mask fits the face of a beautiful woman. When Avanthika first encounters Shiva, she becomes aware that she isn’t just a warrior, but a woman who finds an equal and opposite side to her self – one that can’t help but be struck by the prettiness of the tattoo that Shiva painted on her hand while she was asleep. Neither is she outraged enough by her lurking makeover-inclined admirer to cut Shiva down to size when she finally meets him. Not just that, she lets him strip her and apply eco-friendly make-up, which includes everything from crushed berries to a dash of Shiva’s own blood.

  • 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.

    Shirdi, Aug 1 (PTI) Shri Saibaba Sansthan Trust (SSST) has announced changes in the timing of Shri Saibaba’s aaratis with effect from today, in view of the heavy rush of pilgrims during the ongoing Kumbh Mela. Shri Saibaba’s ‘shejarati’ (last aarati) which earlier took place at 10.30 PM will now be held at 11.30 PM, while the morning ‘kakad’ aarati will be held at 3.00 AM instead of 4.30 AM. This decision was taken by SSST’s three-member committee today, Rajendra Jadhav, the trust’s executive officer told PTI. “The changes were effected from today for at least two months, considering the heavy rush of pilgrims during the ongoing Nashik-Trimbakeshwar Kumbh Mela, so that the main temple of Shri Saibaba will be open for 20 hours in a day,” Jadhav said, adding that the SSST will accordingly inform the devotees, who have made online booking for these two aaratis, through SMS.

    It has been a decade and a half since Unilever shut down its thermometer factory in Kodaikanal, a hill station in Tamil Nadu. The massive multinational had little choice but to do so after it emerged that large quantities of waste containing mercury from the factory had been dumped in the forest behind the factory. The company then known as Hindustan Lever claimed that this was only done by a junkyard it had sold its waste to, while activists and others insist the company was using the forest as a dumping ground as well. Large tracts of Kodaikanal's lakes, plants and fish have been affected by mercury poisoning.
