  • Sunny Leone: I don't want to go nude in movies

    By Jahnavi Patel, Glamsham Editorial What happens in the past stays in the past.

It's like going backwards and I am here in Bollywood to make mainstream movies and this is what I wanted to do.

  • Dear Smriti Irani, stop giving my money to IITians

    IITians are the most guilty of this pilferage. While it takes over Rs 3.4 lakh to educate an IITian per year, the student pays only Rs 90,000 per year. If one extrapolates this to all the 39,540 students in the Indian Institute of Technologies, the cost borne by the tax payer on educating IITians extends to 988.5 crore annually. According to budget estimates, Rs 1703.85 crore is to be allocated to the IITs for 2015-'16.

  • Legal eagle: Jayalalithaa's 'nemesis' in courts returns

    The "wily old fox", as he is known in legal circles, is all smiles as he prepares to open up in a freewheeling chat with Hindustan Times about former Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa's disproportionate assets (DA) case. "Certainly this is one the most important cases in my life," says BV Acharya, 81, who has been brought back by the Karnataka government as the special public prosecutor (SPP). As the countdown to judgement day begins in Jayalalithaa's appeal in the Karnataka High Court, an unexpected turn of events has brought Acharya back to the helm. This follows an order from the Supreme Court on April 27 that the appointment of Bhavani Singh as SPP in Jayalalithaa's appeal in the high court was "bad in law".

  • It's My Choice To Have Sex Outside Marriage

    It’s My Choice To Have Sex Outside Marriage – Undoubtedly, the selection of words is incorrect. “Its my choice to have sex outside marriage…….”, is the only bold statement from Homi Adajania’s video ‘My Choice’ (starring Deepika Padukone), that has captured the most of the attention rather than the strong message it conveys- “The men and women must be treated equal. There must be similar set of rights & choices for all, irrespective of the gender”. Having sex outside marriage or returning home at 6 in the morning is certainly wrong, but equally for both the husband and the wife.

On April 1, Nigeria’s ambassador to India responded to a comment made by Union minister Giriraj Singh, who said: “If Rajiv Gandhi had married a Nigerian lady and not a white-skinned woman, would the Congress have accepted her leadership?” The remark revealed the casual racism that is so commonplace in India.

  • Asian shares falter, Aussie dollar volatile after rate cut

    Asian stock markets retreated on Tuesday and the Australian dollar briefly fell after the central bank cut interest rates for the second time in four months as the region's growth falters in the face of slowing demand from China. The Reserve Bank of Australia cut its cash rate a quarter point to an all-time low of 2.0 percent to push the stubbornly strong local dollar lower, in line with market and analysts' expectations. The Australian dollar fell a quarter of a cent initially, but then quickly rebounded as opinion was divided on how effective the latest RBA cut was going to be in tamping down the currency and spurring the broader economy.
