I am very happy to inform you that I have fallen in Love with you since the 14th of October (Sunday).
With reference to the meeting held between us on the 13th of Oct. at 1500 hrs, I would like to present myself as a prospective lover.
Our love affair would be on probation for a period of three months and depending on compatibility, would be made permanent. Of course, upon completion of probation, there will be continuous on the job training and performance appraisal schemes leading up to promotion from lover to spouse.
The expenses incurred for coffee and entertainment would initially be shared equally between us. Later, based on your performance, I might take up a larger share of the expenses. However I am broadminded enough to be taken care of, on your expense account.
I request you to kindly respond within 30 days of receiving this letter, failing which, this offer would be cancelled without further notice and I shall be considering someone else. I would be happy, if you could forward this letter to your sister, if you do not wish to take up this offer.
After years, the Congress state leadership looking united, and this new high morale post the victory of Ahmed Patel in RS polls. This is the opportunity they have been waiting for, for some 22 years.
The BJP right now does not have any stalwarts to run the party and the government in Gujarat; with Narendra Modi at the Centre and Amit Shah in Delhi it will be easy to take on the local BJP leadership. The BJP also lacks the kind of leadership that Modi has enjoyed since 2007 at least and CM Vijay Rupani lacks the charisma of the PM.
Despite this fertile ground, the Congress too has a long distance to cover.
The recent local body elections clearly give the edge to the BJP. The Congress managed to win 23 of 31 district panchayats and 113 of 193 panchayats, but it is the BJP which is ruling the urban voters without any formidable challenge.
With victory in Ahmedabad, Surat, Rajkot, Vadodara, Bhavnagar and Jamnagar, the BJP not only won all big municipal corporations but also captured 40 of 56 municipal corporations in small towns. With 67 urban and 20 semi-urban Assembly seats in an Assembly of 182, victory in the state still looks far away for the Congress.
The Congress has traditionally banked on its KHAM arithmetic – Kshatriya, Harijan (Dalit), Adivasi (tribal) and Muslim – whereas the BJP with the Patels solidly behind it always emerged victorious.
But now, Hardik patel,Jignesh Mevani and Alpesh thakore have cut into that as well. These 3 guys are what you call rogue elements in politics, no party would openly want to be associated with them but they also need them for votes.
The current situation is nothing short of “Kichdi”. Nobody can accurately predict what will happen but if you ask me, i would say that a 3rd alternative, led by Shankersinh Vaghela would come out as an underdog. Nobody wants congress, everybody has had enough of the BJP and they want some alternative, that’s exactly what Vaghela is offering!
He will win, not because of merit, but because of lack of options.
If you ask me who would get my vote, I would vote for whatever party that promises to make alcohal legal in the state. They could at least legalise beer for starters.
The padmavaticontroversy took an ugly turn today when a fringe Rajput group karani senathreatened actor Deepika Padukone of physical harm. “Rajputs never raise a hand on women but if need be, we will do to Deepika what Lakshman did to Shurpanakha,” said a leader of the group in a video released today, referring to the act of cutting the nose off. Following the threat, Deepika padukone got special security cover by the Mumbai police. The film Padmavati that is slated to release on December 1 stars Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh. The moviehas been embroiled in one Controversy after other and the former royals of Jaipur are calling for a complete ban on the movie, stating that Sanjay Bhansali’s film shows queen Rani padmini in bad light.
Here are top 10 developments on the Padmavati Controversy:
1. The fringe group Karni Sena has threatened that they will gather in lakhs and will call for a Bharat bandh on December 1. “Our ancestors wrote history with blood we will not let anyone blacken it,” a Sena member said.
2. The Uttar Pradesh government of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has written to the Centre saying that the release of the film can pose a law and order problem for the state.
3. Objecting to the Ghoomar song picturized in the film, Heena Singh Judeo, daughter-in-law of Dilip Singh Judeo of Chhattisgarh’s former royal family, said, “History has witnessed that none of the Rajput maharanis has ever danced in front of anyone, and they cannot play with history.”
4. Rajasthan Higher and Technical Education Minister Kiran Maheshwari joined the chorus and said she strongly opposes the film, alleging it’s been made purely for money and entertainment. “Deceit in any case with the history of immortal valour of such women cannot be accepted,” she said.
During a protest in Bengaluru, Uday Kumar Singh of Rashtriya Ekatha Manch also demanded that the objectionable content should be deleted before its release.
5. A Rajput group, which has been demanding a ban on Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s fim Padmavati, targeted a cinema hall in Rajasthan’s Kota that was screening its trailer on Tuesday. Workers of the Rajput Karni Sena vandalized shops in the Aakash Mall, where the theatre was located.
6. Over one lakh members of the community converged at a massive gathering at Gandhinagar on Monday and thousands took part in the protest march in Surat to raise their demand of staying the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali-directed movie.
7. Haryana minister Vipul Goel sought changes in the film and said that “glamourising Alauddin Khilji’s character was akin to praising those who carry out acid attacks on girls”.
8. Divya Kumari, whose grandfather was the last ruler of Jaipur, said “The women of Rajasthan are very upset with this film made on a queen who is the epitome of sacrifice.”
“Rather than highlighting Padmini’s sacrifice, the film-maker has sought to highlight the romantic angle in this film,” she said.
9. Mansinh Rathod, who is leading the Gujarat chapter of Karni Sena, claimed that Sanjay Leela Bhansali has “distorted the historical facts in the movie.”
“We have learnt that there is a dream sequence in the movie wherein ‘Rani Padmavati’ has been shown romancing with ‘Allaudin Khilji’. We condemn such a heinous portrayal our queen. ‘Karni Sena’ will never allow such movie to hit the theatres,” Mr Rathod said.
10. Sanjay Leela Bhansali has repeatedly denied the allegations and even released a video clarifying that his film does not distort history. The film ran into trouble with the Rajputs of Rajasthan soon after the shooting began. Its sets were vandalised twice. Mr Bhansali was attacked while shooting in Jaipur in January.
Why you need to keep moving? Ever faced a situation wherein you thought that it’s end of the world for you as your dreams were destroyed, tarnished due to some reason? Moments where you completely lost it and just negative vibes fill in your life? Situations where everything was messy, troublesome and you had no one to reach out to.
What you did during those difficult times? How those moments collapsed and now when you look back, you thought things could had been a much better? But is it really the case that you would had done something and things would had worked out in your favor irrespective of any troublesome situation? NO. Situations aren’t in our control. What we are destined to will surely take place no matter what the current situation. You might be walking down the street and die of heart attack, you might fall from a bridge and yet be saved without any injuries, you would win a lottery of a million yet lose it to some critical situation and you might still be happy earning 20K each month.
Moments define your condition to some extent not completely unless you chose to react rather than respond. There are always solutions to problems that you have provided you are able to adjust, you are able to analyze a particular situation in your life and then take decisions accordingly. Do not regret any moment in your life for it teaches you more than you could ever think of. Learn from mistakes and strengthen your way through success.
Neither does success stays for long not does failure. Death is the ultimate truth of our existence. Once you overcome this fear, no stone shall be left unturned for you to move ahead positively in your progressive path. Take a deep breath, look around, people running every second just to earn a living. You have more to it as a blessing and more want should not lead to greed, but make you a better person and someone who doesn’t know how to give up.
Stay Blessed & Stay Positive. !!!

If you are one that has sent a WhatsApp message and wish you hadn’t, then worry not. WhatsApp finally has you covered. The “Delete for Everyone” feature has been in the works for quite some time and has started rolling out to Android and iOS users. As of writing this story, WhatsApp on our Android smartphone hasn’t received the update. However, the update has arrived on our iOS devices.
With Delete for Everyone, the message is deleted on both, the sender’s and receiver’s phone. On its FAQ page, WhatsApp said, “Deleting messages for everyone allows you to delete specific messages you have sent to either a group or an individual chat. This is particularly useful if you sent a message to the wrong chat or if the message you sent contains a mistake.” The FAQ goes on to say, “Messages you successfully delete for everyone will be replaced with “This message was deleted” in your recipients’ chats (*). Similarly, if you see “This message was deleted” in a chat, it means that the sender deleted their message for everyone.”
There is however a time limit. User can delete the message only within seven minutes of sending the message. WhatsApp says, “You can only delete messages for everyone for up to seven minutes after sending. Once seven minutes have passed, there is no way to delete messages for everyone.”
If you want to know how to delete a message for everyone, you can simply “open WhatsApp and go to the chat containing the message you wish to delete. Tap and hold the message. Optionally, tap more messages to delete multiple messages at once. Tap Delete at the top of the screen > Delete for everyone”.
If you’ve been active on Facebook recently, you must have across a viral video doing the rounds which features a young boy called Kamlesh who is addicted to ‘solution’. The video should be a heart-wrenching experience for you if you’ve ever had even the remotest of feelings of empathy for fellow humans, even if you are ignorant of the perils of substance abuse.
Kamlesh, who is apparently 13 years of age, claims to have come to Delhi having run away from his hometown Bhopal. He picks rags on the streets of Delhi and earns a meagre amount of ₹120 per day, of which he spends ₹90 on consuming ‘solution’ alone, as he claims in the video.
The video has gone viral across various social media platforms and people from various corners have been expressing concern for the poor boy.
However, the internet being the internet, has managed to find all kinds of voices on the issue, including trolls. And these trolls, staying true to their character, have managed to make fun of a highly sensitive issue like this as well.
Many Facebook pages, having seen the video go viral, took the opportunity with both hands, making an endless streak of memes, GIFs and funny videos among other posts which made fun of the video.
The 3-minute long video is apparently a section of a documentary called ‘Nashebaaz – The Dying People Of Delhi’ by Dheeraj Sharma. Kamlesh, in the video, claims that he does not want to return to his family in Bhopal, because that will result in him parting ways with the ‘solution’, which is the dearest thing to him in the world.
While a humorous take on any issue is appreciated, and is somewhat necessary as well, what the trolls have been up to with this one, reeks of an ignorant privilege that only an entitled lot like these can showcase. Whiling away their idle time in front of their computer screens, most of these trolls are just obsessed with making fun of anything and everything for immediate validation.
An equally disturbing trend is the number of people liking and sharing all these posts. Ignoring the subject being dealt with in the video, people on social media are happy making fun of the boy’s antics just for a few seconds of laughter.
Such pages are reflective of the society we live in, happy to not only ignore the societal evils seethed right under our noses, but exercising the privilege of sitting in our air-conditioned living rooms making fun of a poor boy on the streets, who having been been addicted to the substance at an early age, does not even have full semblance of what he is doing with his life.
Typing this article from the comfortable environs of an urban elite office space, I do recognize the place of privilege I come from. And one may feel that my expression of opinion is no different from that of those Facebook trolls.
However, the excuse that the intent was never to harm anyone’s sentiments and it was all done in good humor runs out of fuel in such cases. A well-intentioned but misinformed action is a poor action nonetheless.
Acknowledging the comforts we have access to is the first step towards making a more sensitized and intelligible society.
And how we exercise this privilege through our opinions and actions is the next and the more crucial part towards making a better society.
Because what may seem like a ‘harmless’ joke, isn’t necessarily ‘harmless’ always.
