Prasar Bharati CEO�s Idea To Air �Ramayan� Was Laughed Upon But We�re Glad He Didn�t Listen To Them

One of the most unprecedented things that has happened during the lockdown has been the return of the â90s. From games like ludo to TV shows, nostalgia has made this lockdown rather comfortable for privileged people like you and I. And you canât talk about nostalgia without naming one of the biggest shows of, now our adulthood, too - Ramayan. Amidst news of breaking records and then raining on our parade, thereâs no denying that Ramayan is one of the few shows that has given us something to look forward to in the lockdown. However, speaking to IANS, Prasar Bharati CEO Shashi Shekhar Vempati remembered how his WhatsApp groups were buzzing with laughter when DD had announced the broadcast of nostalgia shows including Ramayan, soon after PM Modi ordered the first lockdown. WORLD RECORD!!
Rebroadcast of #Ramayana on #Doordarshan smashes viewership records worldwide, the show becomes most watched entertainment show in the world with 7.7 crore viewers on 16th of April pic.twitter.com/hCVSggyqIE â Doordarshan National (@DDNational) April 30, 2020 "They're all, like, laughing. Who's going to watch it? I had to tell them that, you know, India is very different. It's not just the English speaking elite, it's much bigger, much more diverse. So there was that worry," Vempati told IANS during an interview. Needless to say, after the re-runs of the Hindu Epic started, Doordarshan soared past in rankings for top Indian channels, amassing millions of viewers over the course. However, it wasnât easy to piece the show together and required immense effort from the team.  © Doordarshan "The tapes were in the deep archive of the (Ramanand) Sagar family, and in Mumbai it was like operating in curfew. Someone had to physically retrieve these things. The formats had changed. People had to work through the night to figure out how to get it into a compatible format, and then push it from Bombay. Because the file sizes are so large, you can''t do it over the internet, it would have taken forever. So we had a satellite-based mechanism by which the content was beamed from Bombay and downloaded into servers here, so that the next day''s episodes could be aired," said Vempati. "The combination of lockdown and Ramayan," he said, "showed us that families can still come together around television if the content is wholesome and appeals to every segment. Nostalgia was always a trend for Doordarshan. While we leverage nostalgia, we can't rely on that alone" Speaking about the way ahead for the channel, Vempati is actively pursuing organisational collaborations with academia and startups to transform Indiaâs public broadcaster for the digital age. Prasar Bharati is working with IIT Kanpur, around research collaboration on direct-to-mobile broadcasting. "We have asked IIT-Kanpur to create that enabling environment, create the test-bed to bring in startups. And then let's see what we can do in this whole ecosystem. So that effort is on," he added.

Ivanka Trump Calls Jyoti Kumari's 1200km Cycle Journey �Beautiful� & People Call Her Insensitive

The lockdown has brought to the fore the plight of millions of migrant workers who have endured an arduous journey back home - most on foot. A similar story of 15-year old Jyoti Kumari made it to national news after the teenager cycled 1200km all the way from Gurugram to Darbhanga, Bihar with her injured father. She covered the distance in seven days garnering attention from not only Indians but also, Ivanka Trump. Donald Trumpâs daughter and adviser, Ivanka had Tweeted saying, "beautiful feat of endurance and love has captured the imagination of the Indian people and the cycling federation." 15 yr old Jyoti Kumari, carried her wounded father to their home village on the back of her bicycle covering +1,200 km over 7 days.

Government failed her, thats hardly something to trumpet as an achievement . https://t.co/i33ImFm0fr â Omar Abdullah (@OmarAbdullah) May 22, 2020This is not a feat of excellence.

"We spoke to the girl this morning and we have told her that she will be called to Delhi next month as soon as the lockdown is lifted. All the expenses of her travel, lodging and other will be borne by us," Singh had said.

World�s Fastest Internet Can Download 1000 Movies In 0.5 Seconds & We Wish It Existed Pre-Lockdown

Part of the reason as to why many of us suffer from rapidly fluctuating internet speeds boils down to the current infrastructure. While the relatively recent spread of optic fibre connections has boosted speeds greatly in metropolitan cities, things are far from perfect - but one group of Australian researches is out to revolutionise the way we transmit data, and the difference is absolutely incredible. According to The Independent, the team from Australian universities - Monash, Swinburne and RMIT - used a 'micro-comb' optical chip containing hundreds of infrared lasers to transfer data across existing communications infrastructure in Melbourne. The result? A staggering 44.2 terabyte per second connection - a solid one million times faster than the equivalent local internet connection. The research was led by Monash University's Dr. Bill Corcoran, RMIT's Arnan Mitchell and Swinburne's Professor David Moss. © RMIT Mitchell explained that the future ambition of the project was to scale up the current transmitters from hundreds of gigabytes per second towards tens of terabytes per second without increasing size, weight or cost. "Long-term,â said Mitchell, âwe hope to create integrated photonic chips that could enable this sort of data rate to be achieved across existing optical fibre links with minimal cost.â "Initially, these would be attractive for ultra-high speed communications between data centres. However, we could imagine this technology becoming sufficiently low cost and compact that it could be deployed for commercial use by the general public in cities across the world." The researcher also elaborated on the need to scale up infrastructure at the base level - allowing more people to receive access to more data, and doing so at a rate that will leave our old memories of dialup connections back in the dust. "At 40 terabits per second, we were able to put through one single fibre about three times the peak data rate that the NBN has ever seen over its entire network. If you've got 400 gigabit per second to share amongst a bunch of people, that cake only gets chopped up so many times before the slices become too thin. If you've got a bigger cake, then you can give people bigger slices." According to an RMIT press release, the internet was tested on 76.6km of 'dark' optical fibres between RMIT's Melbourne City Campus and Monash University's Clayton Campus. This is known as the testbed. The team used a new device that replaces 80 lasers with one single piece of equipment known as a micro-comb, which is smaller and lighter than existing telecommunications hardware. © Swinburne University It acts like a rainbow made up of hundreds of high quality infrared lasers from a single chip. Each 'laser' has the capacity to be used as a separate communications channel. Researchers placed the micro-comb - contributed by Swinburne University - onto the testbed optical fibres and sent maximum data down each channel, simulating peak internet usage, across 4THz of bandwidth - a first-ever achievement for telecommunications scientists across the world. Meanwhile, Twitter began to react - first of all with disgruntled Aussies expressing disbelief after having to deal with famously overpriced and underperforming internet providers for years. Researchers in Australia claim they logged a data speed of 44.2 terabits per second

At that speed, users could download more than 1,000 HD movies in less than a second ð¤¯https://t.co/L59cD4kol4 â BBC News (World) (@BBCWorld) May 22, 2020Meanwhile having sky broadband is like having these as your reception... pic.twitter.com/KJFXDprw1x â jimmy thompson (@jimmy_thompson5) May 22, 2020In a lab? Because you know Australia went for the cheap broadband & has some of the slowest speeds anywhere â Richard (@Rdonair) May 22, 2020Servers when this is tested. pic.twitter.com/5C3OtodYAv â Declan Robinson #StayHomeSaveLives (@declan_robinson) May 22, 2020 Others flared up conspiracy theories about Chinese tech-thieves showing up in Australia, Communist China may be aiming to steal the tech. Thatâs what they do. Take highest precautions - especially when they are located in Victoria. â Kobrick Chan (@ChanKobrick) May 22, 2020Hopefully, the researchers may prove all the skeptics wrong, and one day weâll have this tech available across the world. Until then, we hope that cat video youâve queued doesnât take any longer to load.

Writer Sudip Sharma Confirms 'Paatal Lok' Season 2 & The Plotline Has Us Excited Already

Post the widespread success of Pataal Lok, Prime Videoâs latest socio-political crime thriller seems ready to make a strong comeback, as director Sudip Sharma and his team have confirmed plans to hit the writer's table and come up with a sophomore season. As mentioned in Mid-Day, lead actor Jaideep Ahlawat, who was critically acclaimed for his role as small-time cop Hathiram, has also confirmed his reappearance as the second seasonâs lead. Reportedly, a source close to the daily stated that the showrunners, this time around, are looking to delve into Indiaâs murky underworld without relying on any adapted screenplays. While season one was inspired by Tehelka editor-in-chief and rape-accused Tarun Tejpalâs book titled The Story of My Assassins, which was further inspired by true events - and spiced up with elements of dark humour and erotic romance along with the gritty crime drama elements. Ever since 2009, the novel has been widely reviewed and highly rated - finally finding its way into Sharmaâs hands. âUnlike the first part that had its roots in a book, creator-writer Sudip Sharma and the creative team are developing an original plot for the second instalment,â said the source, adding in that the writers plan to throw Hathiram Chaudhary into an even more complex web of crime, with a story primarily centered around him. For Sudip Sharma, this is just another in an impressive streak of writing credits for films, almost all of which have been tied together by themes of social commentary and a willingness to explore the darker side of Indian society - two of his most successful works to date have been NH10 (2015) and wildly popular Shahid Kapoor starrer, Udta Punjab (2016). Backed by Anushka Sharma and Karnesh Sharmaâs Clean Slate Films, Paatal Lok also featured Abhishek Bannerjee, Neeraj Kabi, Swastika Mukherjee and Gul Panag in major roles.

Bezos, Zuckerberg�s Joint Net Worth Grew By Rs 32 Lakh Cr In 2 Months & We Can�t Even Count The Zeros

The entire planet is facing one of the worst times a lot of us have seen in our lifetime - economies are crumbling, death toll due to the pandemic is on the rise and we are locked down inside our houses till who knows when. Everything seems to be in dire straits, unless youâre a billionaire, of course. © Reuters Especially if youâre a US billionaire, whose fortunes have risen 15 percent in the last 2 months, states a study. Needless to say, Amazon boss Jeff Bezos and Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg saw massive gains too. In fact, from March 18 to May 19, their total net worth went up by $434 billion (roughly Rs 32.97 lakh crores) while people continue to lose jobs, in the US and worldwide too.
© Reuters More than 600 billionaires in the US became richer as tech stocks rose during virus lockdowns. And while Bezos' wealth grew over 30 percent to $147.6 billion (roughly Rs. 11.21 lakh crores), Zuckerberg's riches rose by more than 45 percent to $80 billion (roughly Rs. 6.07 lakh crores), according to a research by Americans for Tax Fairness and the Institute for Policy Studies' Program for Inequality. In comparison, Bill Gates and Warren Buffett saw much smaller gains of 8.2 percent and 0.8 percent, respectively.
© Reuters Amazon and Facebook, both have used the time to their advantage, by pushing for new program announcements. However, Amazon has also drawn a lot of flak for not providing the ideal working conditions for its employees. At a time when unemployment toll has surpassed the 35 million mark in the US, this may seem disconcerting, especially while a lot of people struggle to make ends meet. And these reactions sum up peopleâs feelings:
.@JeffBezos is a very sad man. To think he would rather put his employees, their families & his customers at risk than provide sick leave, adequate PPE & so on. I bet Jeff has a roof over his head & enough food to eat! #NoVentilatorsEither â Cara NicAine (@CaraNicAine) May 22, 2020Every billionaire is a policy failure. That means Jeff Bezos is one thousand policy failures. #GreedyBezos â Quarantined Tom Rogers (@tomprogers) May 20, 2020He also makes ~1200 times more than his average employee. We do a lot of pretending that this isnât 21st century feudalism. #BoycottAmazon â Colby Williams (@PeaceOverProfit) May 20, 2020

5 Brutally Honest Confessions By Celebs On Koffee With Karan That Made Us Go �WTF�

If you are one of those who thrive on Bollywoodâs gossip, then Koffee With Karan is the one-stop destination for you. Karan Johar has a knack of making the celebs spill their secrets out in open and he doesnât give up until the stars give him some headline-worthy material for that matter. You can trust Karan to give all the latest scoops and scandals in the Hindi film industry. As an entertainment journalist, I have always made sure that I watch the show because you do get to know the inside lives of the Bollywood celebs.
From Bollywood celebs to cricketers, stars have been brutally honest on the show and some of their big confessions have also backfired badly. Those confessions have shocked us, made us laugh and some even disgusted us. Here we have put together a list of a few shocking and weird celebrity confessions made on the show that made us go âWTFâ:

1. Salman Khan Is A Virgin

Even after gulping down three vodka shots, I cannot believe that Salman Khan is a virgin. It took many by surprise when Salman confessed that he is a virgin and is saving himself for his marriage. The statement made a stir but the response came from Arbaaz Khan when Salman was invited to the show with his brothers. In the rapid-fire segment, when asked who can never win âNo sex for a monthâ challenge, Arbaaz could not help but look at his Bhaijaan. We are wondering what the truth - are you still practicing celibacy?  

2. Ranbir Kapoorâs  rendezvous with his  friend's GF

Ranbir Kapoor is no less than the character of Sanju that he played in the movie.If you have seen the movie, you would agree why Ranbir was chosen for Duttâs controversial biopic. In the episode where Ranbir Kapoor and Ranveer Singh were invited on the show, Karan asked a question about sneaking around with their friend's girlfriend. To which Ranbir confessed that he had slept with his friends' girlfriend. Now, this is one brutally honest confession, Ranbir.    © Star world
3. Twinkle Khanna and her terrible acting in Mela

It takes guts to honestly confess that their terrible acting took down the whole movie and well, Twinkle Khanna did admit that people remember Mela because of her terrible acting. Twinkle is known for her outspoken nature and has always made fun of her acting skills. In fact, she had once said that all her films should be banned so no one can watch them.  © Star world
4. Priyanka Chopra on her intimate desires

As a famous personality, itâs hard to come out in open up about personal lives let alone their sexual desires but Priyanka has no qualms about baring it all. She made a few confessions like â she likes sex on the call, she loves making out when lights are turned ON and moreover, she even confessed that she had a shower with her partner during their relationship. Now, this is more honest than we all have been about our sexual lives.    

5. Hardik Pandya and his sex talks with his parents

We never can forget this episode because Hardik Pandya was an all-rounder - misogynist, sexist, and racist. He did confess that he shares the details of his sexual life with his parents which is not so easy for all of us for obvious reasons. His statement - âWhen I lost my virginity, I came home and said, âMain karke aaya hai aaj (I did it today)â - took him down and made it into the headlines. Hope, he has learnt his lesson that confessions made on the show can be disastrous too. 

There are many more such confessions but these were the ones that caught our attention the most!

P.S: Diljit Dosanjh confessed to making out in a car on the show!

5 Facts About The Heroic Deeds That Inspired Ajay Devgn�s �Bhuj: The Pride of India�

Ajay Devgn starrer Bhuj: The Pride of India joins the list of films that have been rescheduled, thanks to the ongoing pandemic.  Originally slated to release on 14th of August, the film has been now pushed to the 16th of December, the day when we celebrate Vijay Diwas. © BCCL; The Indian Army, observing Vijay Diwas The film follows the incidents that took place at the Bhuj Air Force Station and follows the story of Squadron Leader Vijay Karnik. Although he may be portrayed as the hero of the film, (because after all, Bollywood) in real life, as courageous as Sq Lr Karnik was, the women of Bhuj were the actual heroes, who played a vital role in our victory over Pakistan. © Instagram/ajaydevgn; A young Squadron Leader Vijay Karnik, 1971 So, what actually happened in Bhuj, in 1971, that inspired a big-budget Bollywood film? Why is it often called, the Pearl Harbour moment of India? And why are the women, and Vijay Karnik, who retired as a wing commander, indeed heroes in real life?  © BCCL; Recent photograph of Squadron Leader Vijay Karnik These 5 facts answer all such questions:
1. The Sheer Volume Of Airstrikes © CIA; Representational Image: Pakistan Air Forceâs Sabres In the winter of 1971, the Bhuj Air Force Station was raided a total of 35 times in 14 days. That means over twice a day, sometimes, even more. Over 92 high powered explosives and bombs, and 22 rockets were used, in Bhuj alone. 
Strategically, Bhuj was important for the Indian Air Force, given itâs proximity to the border with Pakistan. However, it was also very understaffed. At that period of time, because of a number of reasons.  2. The Attack That Almost Did It © BCCL; Remnants from the attack The most devastating attack came on the evening of the 8th of December. A squadron of Sabre jets from Pakistan Air Force, attacked the strip, dropping over 14 napalm bombs. 
Unlike other regular missiles and ammunitions used by any air force at that time, napalm bombs were designed to be highly incendiary in nature. They were mainly used in the Vietnam war by the US Armed forces. © WikiCommons; Representational Image: Simulations of Napalm Bombs That meant that they would not make a massive explosion when they went off. Instead, the bomb would torch the place where it went of, and just incinerate everything. The resulting fire would burn for hours, even if there was a proper and state of the art system to put the fire out. Of course, we didnât have those back then. 
Needless to say, the facility was heavily damaged, and the airstrip, obliterated, meaning no aircraft could take off. 3. The Role Of Civilians © WikiCommons; File photo of women working on the airstrip In spite of being a strategically important airfield for the Indian Air Force, the squad posted at Bhuj was short-staffed. Moreover, after the attack, it wasnât possible for the Air Force to send their engineers and construction team to rebuild the airstrip. So, Squadron Leader Vinay Karnik had to turn to a local village, named Madhapur, for help. 
300 women came from the village and completely rebuilt the airstrip, enabling the Indian Air Force to launch a counter-attack. 4. The Challenges © WikiCommons Rebuilding the airstrip wasnât exactly a piece of cake. It had to be done within 72 hours, and it had to be done right. Air Force Aircrafts need a proper runway if they are to take off and land safely, without any incident. On top of that, the airstrip had to be a long one as well. 
Moreover, the Pakistan Air Force was constantly raiding the nearby airfields as well. So, the women had to cover up the portion of the airfield with cow dung, as they made it to hide it from prying eyes.  Adding to their woes was the season. During winters, the temperature in Bhuj would often drop to 5 degrees back then. Imagine doing something so labour intensive in winter clothing, that too if they had access to it.  © BCCL; The Indian Air Force built a memorial, honouring the women who built the airstrip Eventually, the women were able to build the airstrip back, and Squadron Leader Vinay Karnik, along with his 2 officers, and the rest of the crew were able to launch a counter-attack. 
Squadron Leader Vinay Karnik and his crew, also successfully saved the aircraft from the raids and the bombings, which proved to be vital for our chances of success. 5.  The Humility © BCCL; As of 2010 only 50-60 of the women who built the airstrip were alive. As per a 2010 interview with the Times Of India, one of the 300 women who worked on the airstrip said that after the war was over, the then Prime Minister of India, Indira Gandhi felicitated them and offered the group a reward of Rs 50,000, which was a lot of money back then. However, the women refused to accept it, saying they did what they did, not for the money but because of their patriotism, and because rebuilding the airstrip was something that needed to be done.
The entire airfield and the airstrip had to be built again, because of the 2001 Gujarat earthquake.  With that being said, from the looks of it, Bhuj: The Pride of India should be one cracker of a film. We just hope the film does not get delayed anymore.

Video Appears To Show Delhi Mob Looting A Mango Vendor It's Like Corona Has Killed Humanity Too

At a time when the entire world is surviving on human empathy and kindness, some people in Delhi have brought great disgrace upon themselves by exposing how petty and disgustingly selfish they can be. According to a report by NDTV, a fruit-seller in North Delhi's Jagatpuri area was robbed of multiple crates filled with mangoes by a handful of random passers-by. The street-vendor had made the mistake of leaving the crates unattended for a few minutes when people noticed it and launched a loot. Delhi crowd loots mangoes worth thousands from street vendor https://t.co/eFT05iWQG5 pic.twitter.com/L98adlkkip â NDTV (@ndtv) May 22, 2020 The crowd emptied every single crate as they loaded their bags and helmets with as many mangoes they could stuff in them, and fled the scene. Talking about the devastating incident the fruit-seller, Chhote, said, "They had a fight over there, near the school. A group of men came here and asked me to move my theli (push cart).â Thatâs when people saw the crates left unattended and decided to steal from the poor vendor. Some shameless thieves even called out to others around them to join in and take some for themselves.

With insane reviews across the country, it has definitely kept the audience hooked to their laptop screens. Produced by Anushka Sharma's production company called Clean Slate Films, the story unfolds many mysteries. By this time, you are either done watching the series or would binge-watch it in your free time, but whatever the case, we are not here to give you spoilers. Here's a little trivia away from the show about Paatal Lok's cast and their real-life partners and their families. Check it out.  1. Neeraj Kabi © TOI Neeraj Kabi who plays the role of a journalist in the series is a popular name of the industry. He has also worked in movies like Hichki, Laal Kaptaan, Talvar etc. In real life, this established actor is married to a fashion designer named Deepali Kosta. They are both parents to their daughter Saptakshi Kabi.
2. Abhishek Banerjee View this post on InstagramBye bye 2019 you were great.. 2020 be kind like the sea behindðð¤ð¤ @tina_merlyne #newbeginings #beachlife #beachlover #traveler #traveldiaries #urbanhippies #mauritiusð²ðº #2020 #newyear #actorslifeA post shared by (@nowitsabhi)  Abhishek Banerjee is named Vishal Tyagi in the series and happens to be a serial killer. In real life though, this actor has done amazing supporting roles in movies like Dreamgirl, Stree and Bala. But the actor's portrayal in the series is completely opposite of these roles.

Today it rings true like never before. You can still catch our LIVE chat till noon tomorrow. Head over to stories and tap the bottom right of the page where it says LIVE. Tomorrow at noon I'm in conversation with @guneetmonga , someone who has redefined independent cinema in India.

Forget The �Chamatkar� Speech, Chatur Is Back With A Fiery Monologue For All The Covidiots

â10 saal baad isi station pe vaapas aayenge. Aaj hi ke din... Aayega? Aayega?â If you are a complete Bollywood âbhaktâ, you cannot forget these words as you will be instantly reminded of Omi Vaidya aka Chatur from 3 Idiots.  You canât forget the infamous speech as itâs a rarity that a movie scene is written in such hilarity. Now, Omi has come up with one speech but itâs about those idiots who arenât taking the Coronavirus seriously. The speech gets us back to the old Chatur because he has given this monologue too in 3 Idiots style. He captioned the video as, "CHATUR ON CORONA!!! Aadarniya Social Media Family, Aapne mujhe bahut miss kiye hogey. That is why I am aa gaya hu â Aapko firse HANSAANE, aur Corona ko RULAANE.  Created by these idiots -: @kkay9616 @seedhasaada @shrreyasinghania @i._.amanparmar @saiket_sengupta." View this post on InstagramAadarniya Social Media Family, Aapne mujhe bahut miss kiye hogey. That is why I am aa gaya hu â Aapko firse HANSAANE, aur Corona ko RULAANEð Created by these idiots -: @kkay9616 @seedhasaada @shrreyasinghania @i._.amanparmar @saiket_senguptaA post shared by (@omionekenobe)  In the video, he said, âNamastey... Mere priya darshakon...jaise ki aap jaantey ho ki mera Virus se purana rishta hai. Isliye maine iss virus pe kuch likha hai. Ye virus jaanleva hai lekin iska prabhaav ek aur chiz par pada hai. pata hai kispe? Sthann ki prapti pe... (omi takes the marriage ring out of his finger) Sabse pehle apne haatho se ling nikale aur haath ko Jal ki boondi ke neeche rakhiye...Phir saaboonn ki jhaag mai shukranu ko aise masaliye ki uski naam-o-nishaniii  mit jaaye⦠Iss nirodh ke kaal mai bahar jaye toh muh pe mask hamesha lagaye. A for Apple B for Ball, C for Corona...Goodbye Idiots.â The creators like Saad Khan, Karan Kothari, Shreya Singhania, Aman Parman, and Saikat Sengupta are the mind behind this video and have done an amazing job delivering the message.  Well, this is hilarious. This would have surely reminded of the old speech so hereâs it for you to see it again. In one of the interviews, Omi Vaidya had said, âI remember thinking how hard (and exciting) it would be to interpret the speech the way it was intended, sans Ranchoâs indecent alterations. I remember thinking how difficult (and challenging) it would be to play the speech straight with cameras rolling and a full house rolling in their seats. And then flash, I remember it all being over and everyone loving it, even the lighting crew who rarely stick around to watch the action.â Well, Omi Vaidya rose to fame with this movie, and by seeing him giving this Corona speech, we would want to see him soon on the big screens.

Middle Seats On Flights To Be Filled As Social Distancing Is Not Followed Even If They're Empty

We had gone so long without an extremely stupid comment by a minister, I had actually started getting worried about their well being, but well, the comeback was worth it. Recently, Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Puri made one of the most illogical comments during this coronavirus pandemic and I'm impressed at how absurd it is. So, as everyone knows, social distancing is the new norm and how important it actually is to minimize the spread of coronavirus as much as possible. It's not that hard to follow, it's pretty basic. Since domestic air travel is starting from May 25th, preparations for restarting have been going on. Talking about that, he was quoted by Press Trust of India saying that even the middle seats won't be left empty on flights. Social distancing requirement not met even if middle seats in flights are kept vacant, so we will fill up middle seats: Aviation Minister â Press Trust of India (@PTI_News) May 21, 2020 Okay, I get that the social distance rules won't be fulfilled even with passengers on the window and aisle seat, but leaving the middle seat is pushing it too far. People should not be in such close proximity to each other during a freaking pandemic.

Breaking Down The New �Tenet� Trailer: 5 Takeaways All Christopher Nolan Fans Probably Noticed

Back in December 2019, maverick director Christopher Nolan released our first look at Tenet - and by all means, the filmâs time travel shenanigans, mysterious apocalyptic plot and signature mindf*ck appeal that weâve come to know and love from Nolan, were all very much present. Earlier today, Nolan fans the world over relived the hype as Warner Bros. released the filmâs second trailer - and with more scenes to break down and overanalyse, film buffs everywhere picked up pen and paper and got set to dissecting a premise that makes even Inception look like childâs play. Here are five things weâve discovered from a deep dive into the trailer number two for the much-awaited film: 1. A Mysteriously Absent Release Date © Warner Bros. Back when the original trailer hit the internet, we all set our calendars for July 17th - the original release date. This time around, the date has been replaced with a 'coming to theatresâ message. 
Given that distributor Warner Bros hasn't yet set a new release date, let's assume it's on course for now - or likely to change as the COVID-19 crisis keeps theatres out of business. Just another thing to add to the ever-growing list of Coronavirus pandemic related agonies weâve had to face this year. 2. Are We In For A Chemical Apocalypse? © Warner Bros. Given the sinister tones and implied negative motivations of Kenneth Branaghâs character in what weâve seen so far, itâs not a stretch of the imagination to assume that heâll be playing the filmâs central antagonist. 
As spelt out by Clémence Poésy's character, he might be the cause behind an upcoming âWorld War III'. We see Branagh wearing an oxygen mask right in the middle of an open freeway - so, chances are that we might see the threat of worldwide chemical warfare take a central role in the film. 3. Robert Pattinsonâs Character © Warner Bros. One great, if short reveal from this trailer revolves around none other than Robert Pattinsonâs character, who has previously described his role as a âChristopher Hitchens typeâ, Hitchens being the late, controversial journalist and social commentator for the likes of The Daily Mail. We've no idea how that will translate into the world of a Christopher Nolan movie.
What we do know is that part of the filmâs massive $225 million budget will involve Pattinson dramatically suggesting crashing a huge, grounded jumbo jet into a building, telling us that heâll certainly be wielding some comedic banter aside John David Washington in Tenet - perhaps a welcome distraction from constantly having our minds chewed up from all the high-concept plot. 4. Time Travel? More Like Time Inversion © Warner Bros. John David Washington's central figure says they're not dealing with time travel but âtime inversionâ. This is demonstrated when he appears to fire a gun at a target, only to be told that he hasn't fired the bullet, but instead captured it inside the chamber. 
With Pattinson previously stating that his character isnât a âtime-travellerâ, weâre left just as bewildered as we were back when trailer one released. Currently, the most well-backed theory is that instead of simply travelling back and forth through time, Pattinson and Washington instead travel into a fourth dimension of sorts - a reality where past, present and future all coexist, giving the paranormal pair the ability to switch through different outcomes like trains on multiple tracks. Like I said - Inception ainât got nothing on this. 5. Sleeping Through Explosions © Warner Bros. While the trailer is full of âwhat the f*ck?â moments from start to finish, one, in particular, that might have gone unnoticed was an action scene that seems to take place in a musical auditorium - with a live orchestra upfront. 
Whatâs weird here is that amidst explosions and gunfights, the entire audience seems to be sound asleep, dead or unconscious - while a moving arm in the background suggests that the orchestra isnât so.  Confused? So are we - and we canât wait for more.

5 TV Shows We Can�t Watch With �Desi� Parents Sitting In The Same Room Without Being Awkward

Indian parents are the best in the world but they love practicing control in their kidâs life. No matter how old youâre going to be, you are always going to be a âbacchaâ for your âdesiâ parents. They are always going to be a curfew time to get back home and honestly, the only people happy with the lockdown are our parents. 
Theyâd want to know about our friends and would also want to control the kind of content that we watch. If it were in their hands, theyâd put the camera in our rooms and maybe clone our phones to know every bit of information about their kids. There are a few TV shows our parents wouldnât approve of, and itâs best to watch these while theyâre asleep. Why disturb their peace of mind? So, here is a list of TV shows that you should never watch with your parents because they are not ready for it yet- 1. Game Of Thrones  If you havenât watched this show, youâre missing a lot in life and most of it Iâd fail to explain. But your parents wonât be able to take in the kind of content it offers maybe and if youâre planning to watch it on your smart TV,  make sure that your parents arenât around.   Imagine- You are watching Game of Thrones and your mom walks in your room and the screen has Cersei and Jamie Lannister making love. Exactly, a total disaster!  2. Sex Education  Our parents think that we are failing at the basic education and if weâd try to make them understand how important is Sex Education,  not all parents will be cool about it. But, this show is pure gold and everyone should watch it but not in front of their parents.   3. Shameless 
If your mom catches you watching Shameless, thatâs exactly what sheâd call you. Also, the content on the show might not be mom approved. So, just do everyone a favor and lock your room before watching it or just watch it in the absence of your parents.   4. Sex and The City  Call it a chick flick or a show you want to binge watch, but if you enjoy watching Sex and The City it is what the name suggests. The TV show revolves around the story of a writer and her three friends and their experience living in the city. Now, there is a chance that âdesiâ parents assume that we are watching something really wrong if the name has the word âsexâ in it.   5. The End Of The Fu*king World  This show is just a little messed up and your parents will definitely feel that something is really wrong with you if youâre hitched to this show. So, spare them the horror of choosing it to watch the show with them.

Big B & Ayushmann's 'Gulabo Sitabo' Trailer Is Out & Fans Love The Chemistry Of This �Jodi�

It was just yesterday when Ayushmann Khurrana and Amitabh Bachchan were having a banter on a video call with director Shoojit Sircar and they announced that the trailer of Gulabo Sitabo will be out on May 22. At 4:00 PM today, the trailer dropped online and to be honest, it looks like a fun, roller-coaster ride. Ayushmann and Big B's movie is all set to be launched on an OTT platform. The movie is set in Lucknow, and the trailer shows Ayushmann as a tenant while Big B plays is shown as the owner of a ramshackle âhaveliâ. The trailer in itself is rib-tickling and we can see both the actors continuously passing sarcastic comments on each other. It starts with Mirza (Amitabh Bachchan) who is shown as the owner of the âhaveliâ, stealing bulbs from his tenant, called Baankey (Ayushmann Khurrana), who starts complaining about it later. The âhaveliâ is Mirza's heart and soul and so he tells Baankey to either pay more money as rent or leave the place but Baankey does not give up. The rivalry between the two goes on, to an extent that Mirza finally seeks legal advice on how he can get rid of the tenant and that's where we see Vijay Raaz's entry, where he changes the whole ballgame of this scenario, creating more ruckus with a good laugh. In the end, we see Baankey asking Mirza to adopt him but Mirza shoos him away.

Kevin Pietersen Goes 'Headless' To Pull Off Unbelievable Magic Trick In His TikTok Video

While the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has handed a major blow to human beings, it appears that the sportspersons have been hit a little too hard. Forced to stay indoors as part of the COVID-19 preventive measures, sports stars are finding it hard to hold it together as they continue to find unique ways to kill time at home. From taking on indoor challenges, posting workout videos to even doing household chores, the sports icons have been at it for a while now. From David Warner's dance episodes on Telugu songs to Virat Kohli imitating a velociraptor , cricket fans have already seen things they wouldn't have possibly imagined in their wildest dreams. View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@anushkasharma)If the current crop of cricketers is enthralling fans with their wits, former cricketing greats aren't too far behind either. Take Kevin Pietersen, for instance. Arguably one of the most active cricket stars on social media, KP has been having a gala time, tickling the funny bones of fans with his hilarious antics.

From holding a live interactive session with Virat Kohli to trolling poor Cheteshwar Pujara on Instagram, Pietersen is making sure cricket fans, deprived of sporting action, are getting their fill of entertainment in one way or the other.  Returning back to doing what he does best, entertain fans, Pietersen appears to have turned into a magician, and by the looks of it, a good one too.

View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@kp24)
Taking to Instagram, the England batting great shared a trick video of himself, giving an impression that his neck got detached from the body and slid down the staircase on its own. "Anyone else lost their head during #lockdown?!?!" Pietersen captioned the interesting video.

Apart from sharing the magical video, Pietersen also showered praise on Shoaib Akhtar while recalling the England tour of Pakistan in 2005. "My first proper Test tour abroad was Pakistan. It was straight off the 2005 Ashes. That (tour) was frightening. The speed at which Shoaib Akhtar bowled in that series, my goodness!," Pietersen was quoted as saying by Cricket Pakistan.

Reliving the banter between Akhtar and Andrew Flintoff in the Test series, Pietersen said: "I remember it was quite funny. Shoaib was struggling with his knee and he wasnât bowling as quick and Freddie (Andrew Flintoff) turned to him and said 'Shoaib, itâs no use looking like Tarzan and bowling like Jane buddy'," he said.

"You could see that Shoaib took this to heart. My goodness! The speed at which Shoaib Akhtar bowled in that Test series, oh my word! Crazy, he was bowling faster at five in the afternoon than he was in the morning. It was crazy, crazy," Pietersen added.

�Gulabo Sitabo� Trailer: 5 Reasons Why It Might Be The Best Dramedy To Watch In 2020

Itâs been a while since some happy news found its way onto our mobile screens, but with the trailer release of Gulabo Sitabo, weâre sure that 12th June will surely come bearing some excitement. This upcoming Shoojit Sircar dramedy has every Amitabh Bachchan and Ayushmann Khurrana fan beaming, because letâs face it, it looks highly promising. Apart from being BigB and Ayushmannâs first on-screen collaboration, the Gulabo Sitabo trailer is convincingly funny, comes with witty dialogues and gives us a sneak peek of a story thatâs got us all craving for more. But apart from that, here are 5 simple reasons which convinced us the Gulabo Sitabo might just be the best dramedy we watch in 2020. 1. The Leads Play By Their StrengthsIf there are two Bollywood actors who are good at carrying out a good repartee with utmost sincerity, BigB and Ayushmann will be the best picks from the lot. Why? Because in his decade-long career, BigB has time and again proved how stellar he is at making witty comebacks while still playing his part. Think Cheeni Kam, Piku and more recently, 102 Not Out. © Rising Sun Films Ayushmann, on the other hand, has made his mark when it comes to playing light-hearted roles that also come with the strength of character. Be it as Vicky Arora in Vicky Donor, Mudit Sharma in Shubh Mangal Saavdhan or more recently, Balmukund Shukla in Bala.
Even in Gulabo Sitabo, both BigB and Ayushmann will be seen playing by their strengths when they try to come at each other in hilarious ways in order to gain an upper-hand over the other. 2. Itâs A Walk Through Lucknowâs Rich History © Rising Sun Films Based in Lucknow, the filmâs setting offers to explore the Nawabo ka shahar through a fresh perspective. One that draws our attention to the once-âgloriousâ, crumbling structures of the past. Laden with its unique history and passed through generations, the haveli(s) will surface as crucial motifs, significant to push the plot forward.
3. Itâs Sentimental, But Highly Relatable Too © Rising Sun Films When Gulabo says, âMohabbat kartein hain hum apni haveli se, beintehanâ, itâs impossible to not feel for the stubborn old man. Yet, at the same time, the trailer also succeeds in reminding us that this attachment and the desire to keep this relic of generations past standing, may come at a cost.
While Gulabo Sitabo is said to be an âinspired by lifeâ comedy which attempts to present the daily problems of a common man through two different takes on it, its humour will become the bridge between sentimentality and relatability that you and I can draw from our own lives. 4. Thereâs âSeriousâ Comedy Involved © Rising Sun Films The trailer itself makes us laugh on different occasions, but the subject around which the humour is being played out is serious. The ancient haveli around which the entire story revolves, is a poor, old manâs legacy in the form of ancestral property.
Itâs clear that apart from Gulabo and Sitaboâs personal interest in the dilapidated structure, even the âgovernmentâ seems to be interested in getting its stake in the matter, though only time will tell if the quirky tactics to stand their ground will work out in each of their favour. 5. Itâll Be Difficult To Choose A Favourite © Rising Sun Films While the makers claim that Gulabo Sitabo is a âquirky tale of two slimy scheming foxes in a game of one-upmanship, each one attracting other members to their clan and each one with an agenda of his ownâ, the trailer also makes it pretty clear that as an audience, who will get a glimpse of both sides of the story, we may not find ourselves in a position to choose sides when it comes down to ascertaining who is right and who is wrong.
Or perhaps the story itself will seek a middle-ground and give way to reconciliation stemming out of those funny jabs and retorts. Letâs see how the story unfolds. #CantWait

7 Popular Fame Gurukul Contestants Who Set Our TVs On Fire & What They Are Up To These Days

Fame Gurukul was one of the most popular reality shows on TV back in 2005. The show was in search of its âFame Jodiâ and earned top viewership on Sony channel. It came with a fresh concept and some really great talent was showcased on the show. We take a look at what these seven contestants from the show have been up to since. 1. Qazi Touqeer © Instagram Qazi Touqeer Qazi was perhaps one of the most controversial contestants on the show. He was definitely a very average singer out of the lot, but highly popular nonetheless. Despite many less than thrilling performances, he kept getting the most number of votes. Although he never hid the fact that he aspired to be an actor, Qazi ended up being one of the winners on the show.
However, he seemed to run out of luck post winning this show. Qazi did get to live his filmy dream with Take Off but it never saw the light of the day. He was last heard in the song âAfghan Jalebiâ from Phantom, and reportedly apart from performing in concerts, he has been working on the script of a film that he calls his âdream projectâ. 2. Ruprekha Banerjee © Imdb The other half of the âFame Jodiâ, Ruprekha had been a consistently top contestant on the show. Despite not being the most outgoing performer on the show, she made her way to the top by spilling the magic of her voice in every song.
However, apart from her debut album Yeh Pal, she didnât taste much success in terms of a mainstream singing career. She did become a part of shows like Jo Jeeta Wohi Superstar and another Bengali show Royal Bengal Super Star on Star Jalsa. Apart from that she has reportedly recorded a number of music albums. 3. Rex DâSouza © blogbeats Known as the âPerformance Kingâ on the show, Rex was not only a good singer but also an all-rounder when it came to creating a visual impact. Even though he ended up winning the runners-up title, many believed that Rex deserved to win alongside Ruprekha.
Reportedly, post his Fame Gurukul success, he started doing a lot of stage shows in India and abroad. Apparently he has also done playback singing for a few Bollywood films. Currently, he is said to be settled in the US with his girlfriend-turned-wife, Kruti. 4. Arpita Mukherjee © Instagram Arpita Mukherjee Arpita was another top contestant on the show, with a melodious voice and a pleasing personality. However, she missed her chance to make it to the Top 3 and finished fourth. However, she continued to pursue her career in music post the showâs conclusion.
Arpita has done everything from playback singing for films such as Mubarakhan and Ek Tha Hero, to singing title tracks for various shows such as Balika Vadhu, Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi besides others. She has also recorded songs for various albums and is seen as a judge on Sa Re Ga Ma Pa shows. 5. Sandeep Batraa © Instagram Sandeep Batraa Sandeep was a decent performer on the show, and also earned positive comments from the judges, but failed to make it to the top. However, his love for music made him consistently keep pursuing it even after he was eliminated from the show.
Apart from doing stage shows and recording songs, Sandeep also did playback singing for some B-grade films such as Mehbooba and Main Zaroor Aaunga. He has also composed songs for TV shows such as Silsila and even made a movie starring Mahesh Bhatt named The Dark Side of Mumbai City. 6. Arijit Singh © Facebook - Arijit Singh Arijit needs no introduction today. He was one of contestants on the show who showed major potential. It was here that director Sanjay Leela Bhansali first took note of his singing skills, and well the rest as they say is history.
Today he is a leading Bollywood singer who has major blockbusters like âPhir Le Aya Dilâ from Barfi, âTum Hi Hoâ from Aashiqui 2, âKabiraâ and âIlahiâ from Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, âAgar Tum Sath Hoâ from Tamasha, âBekhayaliâ from Kabir Singh and many other memorable tracks. 7. Keerthi Sagathia © Instagram Keerthi Sagathia Keerthi may not have been able to climb up the popularity charts on Fame Gurukul but he did manage to showcase his potential as a singer. Though he was eliminated from the show at a pretty early stage, Keerthi went on to establish himself as a successful playback singer.
Keerthi has done playback singing for numerous Bollywood films such as Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran, Daawat-e-Ishq, Fukrey, Satyagrah, Raanjhanaa, Special 26, and Delhi Belly, besides others. He has also been regularly singing songs for Tamil, Telugu and Gujarati films.

People In Quarantine Centre Refusing Food Made By Dalits Shows Casteism Is The Biggest Virus

We're going through probably the worst time right now, I mean, nothing says a horrible year more than a global pandemic, right? During such a time, one would hope that people would come together to defeat the Coronavirus and help end the pandemic any way they can, but turns out, it's all wishful thinking. People are still surprising us with how terrible they are and one of the worst things being highlighted right now, is how much casteism is still prevalent, even in the middle of a f*cking pandemic. Recently, a video of an incident at a quarantine centre, reportedly in Bihar, kind of went viral online because it shows the ugly truth about casteism.  The video shows a man yelling and another one kicking plates of food. Why? Because that food was prepared by a Dalit woman. Merit Dhari refusing to eat food cooked by a Dalit women at a quarantine center.
What arrogance..... pic.twitter.com/UnETG9g9KB â Alex Ambedkar (@ganikapudi_) May 20, 2020 It's hard to imagine that there are people who act like this, especially during these times. It's the reality and honestly, it feels like even if we get rid Coronavirus, India will never be rid of the more dangerous virus that is the caste system.  People like these don't deserve food made by anyone, they should starve and rethink their actions. But, that won't happen, of course.  That won't happen rather he'll make that dalit go hungry and jobless , his arrogance will win â Naveen Padmanabha (@NothinNeu) May 20, 2020 Another similar incident reportedly occurred in Nainital where a 23-year-old refused food and water touched by a Dalit woman. Thankfully, a complaint has already been filed against him.  We're doomed.  21st century India.
Food cooked by a Dalit woman is not good enough .
In a quarantine centre.
Can you hear the 𦠠virus 𦠠laugh???
pic.twitter.com/dJAZEcry0F â Mini Nair (@minicnair) May 21, 2020 Hmm. Bc it's the year 2020 and this is still happening. Give him two choices- eat Dalit made food or starve. https://t.co/FMDotOcQQ1 â Kartik Dimri (@Weeeyerd) May 21, 2020 Well said. To all those who say "There are poor Brahmins also" STFU!
This is brahminism. What goes on in their head is privilege. They are caste conscious even when they starve. This entitlement is what casteism is. This is exactly what needs to be eradicated. https://t.co/SR5UxehO7C â Arya (@RantingDosa) May 20, 2020 Hopefully. He should get no food going forward https://t.co/HpeGCUG4NW â ðð»ð²ððªð¼ð±ð¶ð²ð½ðª ðð¾ð±ðª (@priyashmita) May 21, 2020 The doctor is correct. As a doctor ,i should not say .But u guys deserve to die https://t.co/A89UcbpbGs â Dr ramkumar (@draaarkk) May 20, 2020 It's frustrating. People are starving on the roads - eating roadkill, leaves, anything to survive. And these Brahmin idiots don't want to eat easy meals cooked and served by Dalit (untouchable caste). This is a view into the Hindu Rashtra that RSS, BJP is fighting for. https://t.co/PkRaTHtKIQ â Ahl-e-junoon (@DuneKhaal) May 20, 2020 Yep. Let them starve n let's see how long they stay hungry.. Their caste privileges, my foot! https://t.co/Fh28DwrlTz â ~ | ಪà³à²°à²¸à²¾à²¦à³ | Prasad | ~ (@Manjina_Hani) May 21, 2020 'Idiot' is too nice a word for them. That guy kicked the food !
