  • 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.

Abdul Kalam’s appointment to the top post, by the previous BJP Government, therefore, had been described as a surprise choice.

  • 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.
