Since Tahar Rahim-starrer The Serpent has started gaining ground, people can't stop admiring the French actor for his impeccable acting skills as he plays the role of the infamous French serial killer Charles Sobhraj who was once arrested in India in the short series.  Raised by Algerian parents, the 39-year-old actor is fluent in languages like English, French and Arabic. He first became popular through the BAFTA-winning French-language film A Prophet for playing the role of Malik El Djebena.  Later he took on other popular roles in the US series A Looming Tower and the films like Mary Magdalene wherein he played the role of Judas, wherein he starred alongside Joaquin Phoenix and Rooney Mara. More recently, he has done films like The Mauritanian and The Kindness Of Strangers. Tahar Rahim, after earning his Baccalauréat from Lycée Condorcet of Belfort, did both Sports Computer Science programmes in his early years. He then switched to studying film at the Paul Valéry University of Montpellier. In fact, while in school, his life as a film student was documented by fellow Belfortain Cyril Mennegun which was later titled "Tahar, student", it even aired on French TV channel France 5 back in 2006. Rahim is now married to a French-Algerian actress Leïla Bekhti, whom he met whilst filming A Prophet back in 2007. Apart from his thriving acting career people also admire him for his stellar style.

Ranveer Singh’s Rs 15.45 Lakh Watch Is Way Quirkier Than His Classic ‘Bindaas’ Sense Of Style

Whether someone is interested in men’s fashion or not, the reality is, they simply can’t look away when Ranveer Singh steps out, dressed up quirkily in all his glory. 
© Instagram/ranveersingh That is what we love so much about his sense of style - he operates on extremes. Be it something very elegant and classy, or something very whimsical, and kitschy, the man knows how to carry anything and everything, with utmost confidence.
© Instagram/ranveersingh Time and time again, we have seen him wear some of the quirkiest things that have ever been put out by a fashion label. We especially like the instances when he tends to go for watches that are just bonkers.
© Viral Bhayani Recently, he did something similar. Ranveer was spotted at the Mumbai Airport wearing a rather dope-looking watch. But first, let’s have a look at his outfit.
© Viral Bhayani In an outfit that can be best described as quintessentially quirky and way out of the box, Ranveer Singh was seen wearing a black coloured shirt with white floral prints. This shirt was paired with a pair of bell-bottomed style pin-striped pyjamas.
© Viral Bhayani The pairing of the shirt and the pant was super stylish, without a doubt. We also loved how Ranveer added a whole new dimension to this outfit using his accessories. We really like the triangular sunglasses and the black coloured beret cap that he’s wearing.
© Viral Bhayani Then, there are the silver sneakers that he’s wearing. They are zany and quirky in their own way. They look like a pair from Adidas’ Stan line-up. 
© Viral Bhayani And then, there’s the watch that Ranveer is wearing. It clearly is one of the quirkiest pieces that we have seen him wear. 
© Viral Bhayani The watch that he’s wearing is the Franck Muller Master Square, specifically the 6000 H SC DT R. The watch is remarkably different from most other Franck Muller watches that we have seen Ranveer wear before.
© Franck Muller Apart from being a properly square watch, the hour markers have been marked in a very whimsical manner. The placement of the date function, is again, a bit odd. Most watchmakers usually keep the date functionality right beside the crown.
© Franck Muller The watch normally retails for about $20,800, or roughly Rs 15.45 lakhs. It isn’t exactly ridiculously expensive, considering this is Ranveer Singh, but it definitely isn’t affordable for mere mortals like us.
© Viral Bhayani All in all, that’s a pretty dope watch that Ranveer’s got there. The man clearly has expensive taste. Take a bow, Ranveer.

John Abraham Feels He’s 'Still A Struggling Actor' & We Feel He’s A Bit Late For April Fool’s Day

From being a model to establishing himself as a full-fledged actor, John Abraham's journey has been like a roller-coaster ride and is inspiring for numerous reasons. John has been in films for about two decades now but still the actor feels that he is still struggling to make a mark in Bollywood. Despite giving many successful movies, the actor feels that he hasn’t achieved a strong footing. View this post on Instagram He said, “Honestly, at the risk of sounding humble -- which I don't want to -- I still believe I am struggling and trying to make a mark. I have told everyone on set that I am grateful to be on a film set. I have become more cognizant of it today than what I was back then.” The actor added that he has grown a lot during these years in the industry. "There was a sense of frivolity and a sense of casual callousness about my behaviour at the start of my career, where I wasn't scared of failure. Today, I am not scared but grateful for my journey. It teaches you a lot," he added. View this post on Instagram He also said that he has made this far just because of his conviction and added that he only gives credit to himself for making this far in an industry despite the cut-throat competition. "Someone said that I am the only model who has made it. But today, when I think about it, I think that's true and it's because of my choices and sense of self-conviction. I only give myself a pat on my back and credit for where I have reached," he added. On the work front, John was last seen in Mumbai Saga and has a busy lineup ahead. He will be seen in the sequel of Milap Zaveri's Satyameva Jayate, where he will play a double role alongside Divya Khosla Kumar, Rajeev Pillai, and Anup Soni in pivotal characters. He also has Attack with Jacqueline Fernandez and Rakul Preet Singh. View this post on InstagramApart from these, he will be seen opposite Disha Patani in Ek Villain Returns and also has Shah Rukh Khan-Deepika Padukone starrer Pathan in his kitty.

5 Exercises That Are Easy On The Knees But High On Impact

Look, there’re no magical shoes that’ll lower your marathon time more effectively than training a little harder will. But what if your training itself makes your knees want to beg for mercy?    
Exercise isn’t a no-pain, no-gain deal. It can cause discomfort but it shouldn’t hurt for a long period of time. In a situation like this, it is wise to either rely on a low-impact workout for fitness or see a doctor.   Here are some highly effective easy-on-the-knees exercises you can try to stay fit.  1. Lateral WalkStepping laterally targets the butt and hip muscles.  ● Start in a partial squat position. ● Take a giant step to your right with your right foot, then follow with your left. ● Take a few steps in the same direction.  ● Now, step with your left foot followed by right until your return to the starting position.  If you still experience knee pain while working out, wear a knee cap for better support. __ECOMPRODUCT__1351__ 2. Kettlebell Swing Knee pain can also be a result of weakness in the glutes and hamstrings. The kettlebell swing is a great exercise to target those. ● Grip the kettlebell handle with both hands and stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. ● Bend your knees to reach the partial squat position.  ● Hinge forward at the hips to drop the kettlebell between your legs. ● Stand back up and use the momentum towing the to chest height.  Pro tip: Don’t lock your knees as you stand and make sure your gym bag contents are updated. It shows commitment.  __ECOMPRODUCT__1352__ 3. Calf Raises aka Toe RaisesThis one strengthens your calf muscles and increases balance. But along with that, calf raises are also good for the joints, they’re injury-proof and very helpful in increasing running speed.  ● Stand with your feet hip-width apart.  ● Raise your heels off the ground, then slowly come back to the platform while maintaining the balance. ● You can hold a dumbbell in each hand to improvise. ● Do 3 sets of 15-20 reps.  Pro tip: For better impact, do single-leg explosive calf raises on stairs and wear ultralight socks in summer to avoid smelly feet while at it. __ECOMPRODUCT__1353__ 4. Bridge On BallDoing bridges on a ball or glute bridges can activate your entire hip and butt area without putting any pressure on the knees. ● Lie on your back with your hands at your side and straight legs resting on top of a stability ball. ● Squeeze your glutes and abs and press your heels into the ball as you lift your hips off the floor.  ● Try to form a straight line from your feet to your shoulders. ● Take a pause of a few seconds. ● Squeeze your glutes at the top, then slowly lower your hips to return to the starting position. __ECOMPRODUCT__1200__ 5. Inner & Outer Thigh Leg LiftsThigh leg lifts are great for strengthening and toning your thighs. While working out, make sure you tighten your abs to increase the intensity of the exercise without hurting your knees. ● Lie on the floor to your side and straighten your bottom leg.  ● Bend your top leg and prop your head up with your hand. ● Keep the core tight and target the inner thigh while lifting your bottom leg up and slowly set it back to the floor without moving your back.  ● Repeat with the other leg after 15 reps.  ● For outer thigh leg lifts, straighten your top leg and repeat the process. Pro tip: Always wear shoes with supportive cushioning while working out. This will decrease the pressure on your knees. __ECOMPRODUCT__1354__ Final ThoughtsCycling is another go-to exercise for people who are worried about their joints but enjoy high-impact workouts like running.

Rajkummar's Sneakers Cost As Much As An Old Nano Would've & We Don't Know Which Deal Is Better

Rajkummar ventured into Bollywood and proved that he is a powerhouse of talent. Apart from his theatrics, its sartorial shenanigans too have often turned heads. Remember the time he wore a pair of weird transparent sneakers and then again when he wore baggy pants? These were some of his best appearances that were a quintessential guide to take notes from. © Viral Bhayani For the unversed, Rajkummar is also a sneakerhead, who has time and again thrown in some sick pair of kicks. His dirty sneakers and Mario-inspired sneakers are some of the examples of that. This time he picked a pair of Louis Vuitton sneakers that seem to be one of the expensive vintage baseball sneakers. Check it out.
© Viral Bhayani First, let's talk about this outfit. Rajkummar has outdone himself several times. The recent outfit is quite quirky if you ask us. The shirt is basic but it has a nifty touch in star print here and there, which makes it look not so basic. The silhouette is a bit oversized and he coupled it with dark wash grey denim.
© Louis Vuitton Coming to the sneakers, these are Louis Vuitton Trainer Sneaker. These sneakers are a statement pair of shoes, from LV's Spring-Summer men's shoes. Crafted from white calf leather and the pair is emphasised with flashes of green on the upper and outsole. Furthermore, key signatures include Artistic director Virgil Abloh's hand-written Louis Vuitton on the side.
© Louis Vuitton As for the price, the trainer carries a hefty tag of $1200. That converts to Rs 90,000. The pair being so exquisite, these are bound to be expensive. Add the usual customs and import duties to it and the price will be way more than a lakh.
© Viral Bhayani When it comes to accessories, he scored brownie points for his tinted sunglasses. We really liked the way these glasses are sitting with his entire casual look and how he has thoughtfully added them.
As far his sneakers are concerned, they are expensive but if someone can pay that much for an old Nano, why not a snazzy pair like this one? Something to think about. All in all, we can say these sneakers are quite rad and we hope to see Rajkummar in more such pairs.

Scientists Discover Massive Mysterious Jellyfish-Shaped Entity In Space And It’s Very Fascinating

An Australian-Italian team used a Murchison Widefield Array (MWA) telescope to discover one of the most mysterious anomalies in space. The jellyfish-shaped cluster was discovered in a galaxy known as Abell 2877. The massive entity extends for more than one million light-years and is made of plasma. From Earth’s perspective, the entity looks abnormally like a Jellyfish which is why it has been bestowed the name “USS Jellyfish.” Study lead and PhD candidate Torrance Hodgson, from the Curtin University node of the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR) said the team observed the cluster for 12 hours at different radio frequencies. In fact, the USS Jellyfish can only be viewed at a very narrow band of low frequencies under 200 Mhz. The reason why it has gone unnoticed for so long is that the cluster is invisible to most radio telescopes in the world. It is also the reason why the cluster is called “USS Jellyfish” where the abbreviation stands for Ultra-Steep-Spectrum. © ICRAR_VIMEO “As you turn up the frequency dial, its brightness drops off exponentially, quickly rendering it completely undetectable to conventional, higher-frequency radio telescopes,” Hodgson said in the academic paper. 
The scientists explain that the USS Jellyfish phenomenon is due to a very rare sequence of events that played out over two billion years ago. The Jellyfish structure is scattered between galaxies that may have contained energetic cores referred to as active galactic nuclei (AGN). These nuclei emit massive amounts of light and massive black holes at the centers of each galaxy.  © ICRAR_VIMEO "Then quite recently, two things happened -- the plasma started mixing at the same time as very gentle shock waves passed through the system. This has briefly reignited the plasma, lighting up the jellyfish and its tentacles for us to see” the paper said. 
The MWA telescope, a precursor to the Square Kilometre Array (SKA)  is located at the Murchison Radio-astronomy Observatory in remote Western Australia. The site has now been chosen for the construction of low-frequency antennas for the SKA. The SKA will give researchers an unparalleled view of the low-frequency Universe according to Professor Johnston-Hollitt, Mr. Hodgson’s supervisor and co-author. Source: The Astrophysical Journal

‘Haan, Ab Theek Hai’ Gautam Gambhir’s Unfavourable CSK Prediction Has Calming Effect On Fans

The Indian Premier League is just three days away from returning to Indian soil and with the change in location, some of the previously successful teams that failed to do well in the United Arab Emirates will hope to make a strong comeback as well. At the top of this list has to be the three-time IPL champions, Chennai Super Kings, who ended up finishing the 2020 season second-last in the points table, despite making it to the final a season ago in 2019. And while CSK made some great moves during the mini-auction ahead of the 14th edition of the tournament, former Indian cricketer and analyst, Gautam Gambhir feels that the franchise will end up having yet another disappointing year. In a video interview with ESPNcricinfo, Gambhir said that by the end of the regular season, CSK would find themselves at the No. 5 spot, which would render the ‘Whislte Podu’ out of the playoffs for the second consecutive year after successfully making it to the Top-4 for every season before 2020. Interestingly, Gambhir’s unfavourable prediction for the MS Dhoni-led side has had a calming effect on the CSK fans, who are rather happy with what he had to say. Gautam ne Bola h ab to Trophy jeetne Ka chance bn gya h — ANKIT (@TuzyaAichaGavat) April 7, 2021CSK fans :- pic.twitter.com/ulXQrD9Otl — OGGII (@oggiiduck) April 7, 2021thanks Gautam sir..
CSK fans it's celebration time — Rakesh kumar Singh राकेश कुमार सिंह (@Rakeshk72798087) April 7, 2021Its Party time! Bcoz Gambhir has kept us out of top 4 🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳❣️❣️❣️❣️🤣🤣 — Shantanu Ghosh (@imshantanu105) April 7, 2021Why Are The CSK Fans Happy? It has been a below-the-radar running gag with the Indian cricket fans who troll the southpaw for getting his predictions wrong in the past and whatever the cricketer had said, the exact opposite of it has happened. One of the greatest examples of such an occurrence comes from the IPL 2020 Final between Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals in which Gambhir had picked Marcus Stoinis as the captain of his fantasy league team. 🤣🤣 once again proved @GautamGambhir is wrong pic.twitter.com/Kg0DASxnMZ — Pkranthi (@Kranthi87034815) November 10, 2020 And while the Australian was in marvelous form throughout the season with the ball and the bat, he not only ended up as the most expensive bowler for DC in the final but also gave up his wicket on a golden duck. Some of the other cricket experts who predicted CSK’s result at the end of the season involved Aakash Chopra, Sanjay Manjrekar, and Ian Bishop. While Chopra and Manjrekar echoed Gambhir’s opinion and also felt that CSK will end up missing out on the playoffs, Bishop said that the team will find itself at the No. 4 spot.

Apple Is Working on an Innovation That Could Change Foldable Phones Forever

It has been long rumoured that Apple has been working on a foldable iPhone behind closed doors but we won’t be seeing a new device before they are ready to launch. Apple usually takes its time to perfect new technology before implementing it on a mass-market product. That’s a problem that has been plaguing the foldable smartphone right now as we saw with the first iteration of the Galaxy Fold.  © EverythingApplePro Believe it or not, the main concern about foldable smartphones is still the fragile nature of screens. It is the only component that has a higher chance of failing than any other hardware component. The first foldable phone had two defects which forced Samsung to work on the problem and fix the issues and relaunch the device six months later. 
However, it seems like Apple may have found a solution to better protect the foldable display thanks to a new patent discovered by Patently Apple. Apple is reportedly working on a new screen tech that would offer better protection to devices against cracks. The patent application by Apple has been titled Hybrid coverlay/window structure for flexible display applications which you can see for yourself here. The patent is a continuation of previous patents filed by the Cupertino giant that could prevent damage to foldable screens: “Embodiments describe display modules and protective cover layer structures. In particular, embodiments describe protective cover layer structures that may be implemented in curved, flexible, conformable and foldable display modules, and in particular with curved, flexible, conformable and foldable display panels. Various embodiments are described in which a hardcoat layer is applied to a transparent support substrate to form a protective cover layer structure. The hardcoat layer may be characterized as possessing a lower elastic modulus, higher elongation-to-break and optionally a lower hardness than the transparent support substrate. In one aspect, such a hybrid structure may prevent cracks from forming in the transparent support substrate. In another aspect, such a hybrid structure may move the neutral plane of protective cover layer so that the surfaces of the transparent support substrate see a lower strain upon bending.” © USPTO The patent also showed off images of a device that folds both inwards and outwards. Apple is still unsure about which style of folding it would use for the foldable iPhone as the company is reportedly testing both types of foldable designs. We could see an iPhone similar to the Galaxy Fold or the Galaxy Z Flip. 
© USPTO The patent shows that the foldable screen would have a cover layer that would sit atop the display. This layer would protect the display against cracks as seen in existing foldable smartphones already. The protective layer might be made of ceramic particles on top of a hard display cover made of sapphire and glass. The particle filler would be dispersed in a polymer matrix according to the patent. 
There are other details in the patent that we recommend reading if you want to know what Apple is up to. Having said that, since the information is based on a patent, there is no way to determine when we would actually see Apple implement this in the future. There is no indication whether Apple would ever implement this innovation in a commercial product either. However, it does paint a clearer picture of Apple’s plan to develop the tech required to mass-produce a sturdy foldable iPhone.

Vijay’s ‘Cloud’ Sneakers Sold Out The Day They Dropped, Now Resell For 2-4 Times Their Price

Vijay Deverakonda loves his sneakers. This is a fact that he has proven time and again when he was seen wearing some of the most sought after kicks just days after they were released.
© Instagram/thedeverakonda In fact, we can safely say that some of the sneakers that he has been seen wearing were so unique and outlandish that sneakerheads all over the country couldn’t help but drool over them.
© Viral Bhayani Well, very recently, he did something similar again. Vijay was recently seen at the Mumbai Airport wearing a rather dope looking pair of sneakers that legit look like they were shaped after clouds.
© Viral Bhayani Before we take a look at his sneakers, let’s take a deep dive into the outfit that he’s wearing.
Vijay is seen here in a very basic looking blue coloured long-sleeved T-shirt, along with a basic, but suave looking pair of khaki shorts. Along with that, he has got a black coloured mask and a rather sweet looking bracelet.  © Viral Bhayani The outfit is simplistic, and minimal, which seems to work rather well for Vijay. We also like the way he has styled his hair in a very carefree, devil-may-care sort of way. 
© Viral Bhayani We wish he had accessorised a bit more, but then, he does look quite dapper in the manner in which he has styled himself.
© Viral Bhayani The thing that stands out the most in this outfit has to be the sneakers that he’s seen wearing here. Now, we have seen white sneakers, and coke white sneakers before, but never have we seen anything like this.
© Viral Bhayani The sneakers that Vijay is wearing are the Adidas Yeezy 450 in Cloud White, a brand new line of Yeezy’s that have been designed by Kanye West himself.
© Adidas Back in early 2020, Kanye was seen wearing these sneakers, for the Yeezy show during Paris Fashion Week. That was just the prototype. 
© Pinterest These kicks actually launched in March of this year, and within one day of their release, these sneakers sold out. Originally, they were listed for just $200, or Rs 14,600.
© Adidas Now though, they resell for about 2-4 times their original price. As per StockX, they normally sell for $459, or Rs 33,500. Heck, at one point in time, people actually paid $950 or Rs 71,000.
© Viral Bhayani All in all, Vijay’s choice of sneakers is really something special. Kudos, man, seriously, those sneakers were an awesome choice.

‘Poisonous Stuff,’ Moeen Ali’s Father Slams Taslima Nasreen For ‘Islamophobic’ Statement

Calling out England cricketer Moeen Ali for reasons known only to her, Bangladesh-born author Taslima Nasreen recently shared a tweet from her official account talking about how the 33-year-old would have joined ISIS if he were not “stuck” playing cricket for England. © Twitter - Taslima Nasreen Following a massive social media backlash and being shamed by Ali’s England teammates for unnecessary provocation, Nasreen ended up deleting the tweet but later offered a justification to her followers about how it was meant to be sarcastic in tone.
Haters know very well that my Moeen Ali tweet was sarcastic. But they made that an issue to humiliate me because I try to secularize Muslim society & I oppose Islamic fanaticism. One of the greatest tragedies of humankind is pro-women leftists support anti-women Islamists. — taslima nasreen (@taslimanasreen) April 6, 2021 “Haters know very well that my Moeen Ali tweet was sarcastic. But they made that an issue to humiliate me because I try to secularize Muslim society & I oppose Islamic fanaticism. One of the greatest tragedies of humankind is pro-women leftists support anti-women Islamists,” she tweeted. Nasreen’s justification sat well with a very small section of the angry fans of Ali, who is an international cricketing presence, and his father was certainly not one of them. © Mid-Day In an interview with The Indian Express, Moeen’s father, Munir Ali leaves very little to the imagination about how furious he was with what Nasreen had to say.
"I am hurt and shocked to read Taslima Nasreen's vile remark against my son Moeen. In her "clarifying" tweet, where she described her original remark as sarcasm, she also says she stands against fundamentalism," Munir was quoted as saying by The Indian Express . "If she looks into a mirror, she will know what she tweeted is what is fundamentalist - a vicious stereotype against a Muslim person, a clearly Islamophobic statement. Someone who doesn't have self-respect and respect for others can only stoop to this level." View this post on Instagram "Truth be told, I am really angry, but I know I would be playing into the hands of people like her if I let my rage get out of control. If I get to meet her someday, I will tell what I really think of her on her face. For now, I would ask her to pick a dictionary and see the meaning of sarcasm." "It's not what she thinks it is. It's not spewing vile poisonous stuff against someone you don't even know and then retracting it by saying it was sarcasm. Of all the people to pick on for her agenda, I can't believe she has chosen my son. Everyone in the cricketing world knows the person he is," he added.

People Call Uttarakhand Forest Minister Fighting Forest Fires With Shrub A ‘Publicity Stunt’

Forest fires are a dangerous threat to not just the flora and fauna on this planet but also to the wildlife and humans dependent on forest resources. Lately, our country has been tackling a lot of forest fires everywhere and the recent piece of land that is battling this issue is the state of Uttarakhand, where over 900 spots have been identified for forest fires. While this calls for centre’s immediate attention and intervention, a clip of Uttarakhand’s forest minister, Mr. Harak Singh Rawat has surfaced which shows him battling the forest fires with shrubs in his hands. The video clip shows him stopping on his way to Garhwal Hills as cameras zoom in on him trying to douse off the fire.
...And Action! #Uttarakhand forest minister #HarakSinghRawat tries to douse the #Forestfire with a bush. He was on his way in #Garhwal hills on Monday night. The camera crew captured all the action! #Forestfire #UttarakhandForestFire #uttarakhandnews pic.twitter.com/S2hQ8rUlVr — Anupam Trivedi (@AnupamTrivedi26) April 6, 2021 Like two sides of a coin, the video has garnered mixed reactions. Some people are questioning this way of fighting a fire and feel this is just a publicity stunt to take away attention from the real problem. A symbolic gesture, a photo op. Grabs eyeballs, become a headline. Sadly, this is not enough for now. We need much, much more than this if we have to seriously curb this man made and natural disaster of forest fires — Anoop Nautiyal (@Anoopnautiyal1) April 6, 2021Wow wat a equipment & method of extinguishing the fire , learning for every fire fighter — Sushil Kathait (@KumarKathait) April 6, 2021The minister should at least take swift actions to ensure the forest fire is under control and the flora&fauna is protected and safe rather than doing this silly thing!!#UttarakhandForestFire — Arijit_Gupta (@Arijit17Gupta) April 6, 2021Mostly, the common sentiment has been that maybe he did it for the camera. Photo Opp !! This kind of tokenism will not slove the problem . Can we see more concrete measure Minister Shabe . — Naren Singh (@narenddn) April 6, 2021If the camera crew had not been around, do you suppose he might have bothered to conduct this little drama? — Jyoti Singh (@synchronise1857) April 6, 2021Thank god he is not blowing air from his mouth!! would have doused all fire in one go! — Aiyush 🇮🇳 (@aiyushkumar) April 6, 2021However, a few people were quick to point out that his attempt does qualify for something and while this is an age-old way of tackling fire, he’s at least grabbing the right attention for the cause. Super effort. Deserves an award in public service. — Shveta Mashiwal (@m_shveta) April 6, 2021🏽‍♂️Yeh hota hai tareeka forest fire bujhaaneka.. Koi seekhhen inn se Uttarakhand Forest Minister Ka yeh awesome idea.. US & Australia would be jealous of India that they don't have such techniques to douse the bushfires in their countries. Brilliant! 🏻🏻🏻I'm feeling so elated.. — Imran (@MustLuvImran) April 6, 2021It's not symbolic bro. ये छोटा ही सही, लेकिन वास्तविक प्रयास है। लेकिन ये जंगल की आग के लिए कारगर नहीं है। इसके लिए खूब सारा पानी अथवा मिट्टी ही कारगर होगी या फिर कोई कैमिकल जो आग को kill करने में सक्षम हो।https://t.co/GRdp9Wc6oQ — @LaxmiManral (@Manral_Laxmi) April 6, 2021How elegantly the fire is being doused. Anyways he did take down some fire and that is what matters today. Any little fire can also magnify into a huge one. — Dr. Aanchal Sharma (@aanchii_sharma) April 6, 2021Recently, the minister had informed the public that helicopters will be used to blow out the fire and ease the situation. “Fire broke out at 964 locations in the state. Seven animals and four persons died and two persons were injured. The weather made it challenging for the state government. The Chief Minister (Tirath Singh Rawat) and I are monitoring the situation separately. We'll try to douse the fire with helicopters,” he said.
