Wearing a uniform can mean many things

Every institution that wants to leave a rich tradition, a rich legacy of its decorum and order and wants to create an ‘Element’ of considerable influence in a majority of cases emphasises on wearing a Uniform.

The hours it took to convince friends to come along, the essential items that were supposed to be packed, the music that was supposed to be heard each and everything was a task in itself. 30.9.2016 The day to the trip had finally come. I woke up in the morning, went for my walk, came back and packed my bag for the trip ahead. Due to

Cast: Richa Chaddha, Vivek Oberoi, Angad Bedi, Tanuj Virwani, Sanjay Suri & Sayani Gupta. Created by: Karan Anshuman Okay then. How do we review a Web series?

Dangal : Movie Review

Film: Dangal Cast: Aamir Khan, Saakshi Tanwar, Fatima Sana Sheikh, Sanya Malhotra. Directed by: Nitesh Tiwari.

In India, Haryana is one such glaring example. So when a story of female triumph against odds is told, we must together stand up and applaud the
