Watched Bahubaali in Telugu and was awed

From the start till the end was in awe of the amount of imagination and hard work that has gone into creating such a magnum opus. Really happy to see the director turn his imagination into reality. From the story to the cinematography to the visual effects, everything was amazing.  Every character has done justice to the role that was given to him. The story and screenplay keeps you glued to the screen. The movie ends with leaving you wanting for more. (As everyone who watched the movie said, waiting for the 2nd part). The only thing, I did not personally

The curious case of giving up your LPG subsidy

The recent talk by our honorable Prime Minister, Mr. Narendra Modi, asking people who can manage to give up their LPG subsidy left me flummoxed. I thought asking the common man to leave subsidies and show austerity should come only after the leaders show them their way. Aren’t there few things that, as people’s representatives, they should give up too. To name a few facilities that these leaders can forego: 1) Staying in posh bungalows at Lutyens, which happens to be one of the most posh areas in New Delhi, and paying rents that are far lesser than even peanuts.

#BetterDemocracy: How Education will help develop good Politicians

In this modern world of politics, just how we interpret the word Democracy has always been a considerable debate.

So what makes people articulate such opinions or draw such inferences?  What in my view could be one of the key reasons is lack of adequate education or to put it precisely, lack of political education. Of a good number of

Movie Review: Lekar Hum Deewana Dil: Total Crap

Cast: Armaan Jain, Deeksha Seth Director: Arif Ali Ok!!!  We have seen many love stories in the past. But what Lekar Hum Deewana Dil offers you is total crap. When you think of elopement movies like Bobby, Love story, Qayamat se Qayamat tak and Saathiya come to your mind, where the actors did pure justice to their roles. Apart from being in love and eloping, they expressed emotions that one would really feel they were in love. In contrast, LHDD is a total mockery of this genre of movies. Plot: The actor Arman Jain (apart from his resemblance to Raj Kapoor has nothing
