  • ‘Hang Ujjal Dosanjh for treason before charging Aamir Khan with sedition’

    Aamir shared his pain and anxiety about the "disquiet...despondency" abroad the land of India. For that he has been charged with sedition.

No Indian - Modi, Aamir or any other - needs to prove his/her patriotism.

    Those ‘No Ragging’ posters you vaguely see around educational institutions could be put to good use this week. They must all be collected and sent to Indian media houses country-wide.

  • Experts optimistic Tut's tomb may conceal Egypt's lost queen

    By Eric Knecht LUXOR, Egypt (Reuters) - Chances are high that the tomb of Ancient Egypt's boy-king Tutankhamun has passages to a hidden chamber, which may be the last resting place of the lost Queen Nefertiti, experts said on Saturday.
