Dimpy Ganguly Wants To Stay Away From Rahul Mahajan

Rahul Mahajan should be awarded with the title of the worst husband ever. He has left his 21 years old wife, Dimpy Ganguly in a state of shock after abusing her physically. She is in such a depressed state that she is not ready to go back to him again.

The results of the 4 months marriage of Dimpy and Rahul are horrible and as usual the victim is once again's Rahul's wife. History repeats itself, very true and even holds 100 percent true in this case of brutality.

Dimpy has an innocent heart and she is punished severely by Rahul just for doing nothing. Just because of a message on her mobile phone, she was thrashed by her new hubby, the bad guy Rahul Mahajan.

Rahul is a mad man and doesn't have any respect for feminism; his brutal acts have already let to a divorce in the past. Even his ex-girl friend, Payal has come out in open and is blaming Rahul that he has been plaguing her with calls, threatening to commit suicide if she doesn't take him back.

Now, in the present situation, Dimpy is really depressed and Rahul has reportedly apologized to her.

She states, "We had a conversation. He has regrets about what happened. Both of us are upset. I am deeply hurt and need some time alone to think about this. I want to be left alone till then Rahul has apologized. He regrets his action sincerely. I haven't recovered from what happened.\"

Dimpy's condition is really bad and she is horrified by Rahul, she has even mentioned once, that Rahul pointed a gun at her for a very small thing. Political leaders like Jaya Prada have supported her and have offered her as much support as possible.

Mallika Sherawat Uploads Topless Photograph On Twitter

Last time Mallika Sherawat was in a Hollywood movie, she left no stone unturned to attract all the attention to her, and promote the film. This time around the situation is not any different. The actress is doing all it takes to promote her new Hollywood film, Hisss where she plays a snakewoman.

Mallika, who is known for her risqué ways, has posted her topless photograph on twitter. In the picture, the actress is topless, covering her modesty with her beautiful locks and her hands. Her eyes have a kohl-laden look in them, and her arms are wrapped in a design that resembles scaly snake skin. The actress surely looks an ideal snakewoman in the photograph, and tweets boldly "Is this too much?". Surely nothing is much for this extremely audacious actress who is very fond of publicity and is known to shed clothes in her movies.

Mallika Sherawat's first Hollywood film was The Myth with Jackie Chan. Hisss will be her second movie on the Hollywood silver screens. Hisss is being directed by Jennifer Lynch, and also stars Indian actors, Irrfan Khan and Divya Dutta.

In Kashmir, pro-freedom agitators chop off Sikh youth’s hair

Pro-freedom protestors beat up a Sikh youth and chopped off his hair in Malangpora, south Kashmir, on Wednesday evening. On Thursday, angry Sikhs led a march from Tral and blocked the Srinagar-Jammu national highway near Awantipora, demanding the arrest of the culprits.

According to police, Harmeet Singh aka Mithun Singh, an employee of Border Roards Organisation, was on his way to a market when he was stopped by pro-freedom protestors and asked to raise slogans. Though Singh did as told, protestors beat him up and chopped off his hair.

Police registered a case and picked up two people for questioning. "Investigations have been put on fast track. The victim has also given his statement about the events. We hope to crack the case soon," Shafaqat Watali, DIG, south Kashmir, said.

Sikhs led a protest march from Tral and blocked the Srinagar-Jammu highway for some time . Protests also rocked Digiana area in Jammu. "We have assured the Sikh community that action will be taken against the guilty. We even promised them that if necessary Public Safety Act will be slapped against the culprits," Watali said.

The issue has snowballed into a major controversy with Guru Manyo Granth Society, a Sikh organisation, asking separatist leaders including Syed Ali Shah Geelani and Mirwaiz Umar Farooq to come clean on this issue.

"They [separatists] claim the freedom struggle is not restricted to Muslims but also belongs to Sikhs and Hindus. Then why have these so-called leaders not uttered a single word to condemn the attack on the Sikh community. Their silence arouses suspicion about their role in the attack," Jasdeep Singh, president of the society said.

Sikhs have urged chief minister Omar Abdullah to take action against the offenders or face repercussions.

"The security of Sikhs will be ensured and people who try to disrupt communal harmony will be dealt with sternly," the chief minister said.

Worried over Kashmir; UN urges India, Pak to talk

Worried over the unrest in Kashmir, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has urged both India and Pakistan to \"rekindle the spirit of the composite dialogue\".

"In relation to recent developments in Indian-administered Kashmir, the Secretary-General is concerned over the prevailing security situation there over the past month," Farhan Haq, Mr Ban's spokesperson, said in a statement.

Over the last month as many as 17 people have died in the violence that erupted in the valley as civilians clashed against the security forces.

"He calls on all concerned to exercise utmost restraint and address problems peacefully," the statement added.

While the Indian central government blamed the anti-India elements based in Pakistan for instigating violence in Jammu Kashmir, the state government constituted an inquiry commission to look into the deaths of civilians in the protests.

"He (Ban Ki-moon) encourages both sides to rekindle the spirit of the composite dialogue, which was initiated in 2004 and had made encouraging progress on some important confidence building measures, and to make renewed efforts to address outstanding issues, including on Jammu and Kashmir.

"He underlines the need for patience, perseverance and compromise on all sides,\" the UN chief\'s spokesperson said.

India mourns victims of Pakistan plane crash

India on Wednesday conveyed its condolences to Pakistan over the plane crash near Islamabad that killed all 155 people on board.

In a message to his Pakistani counterpart Shah Mahmood Qureshi, external affairs minister S.M. Krishna \"conveyed deep condolences on behalf of the people and government of India to the people and government of Pakistan, especially to the bereaved families\", the external affairs ministry said in a statement.

All 155 people on board were confirmed dead when an aircraft of a private airline crashed on Wednesday morning amid heavy rain in the wooded Margalla Hills skirting the Pakistani capital.

The Airblue flight 202, flying from Karachi to Islamabad, suddenly lost contact with the airport here and crashed near the popular Damanekoh resort in the Margalla Hills at about 9.45 a.m.

This is the first time Krishna has written to Qureshi after the July 15 talks the two held in Islamabad which stalled over conflicting perceptions on terror and Jammu and Kashmir.

Recently, Qureshi sent a condolence message to Krishna over the train accident in West Bengal that killed over 60 people.

The new Anandi has a different charm

It is not often that you see so much media hype over a leap in a television serial. But Balika Vadhu and the five-year \'leap\' this week has created so much of discussion across the nation that it can very well be compared to what happened during the heydays of Kyun Ki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi.

The immensely popular show on Colors witnessed a major change in its lead cast with Anandi and Jagadish growing up and adult faces replacing the sweet faces of Avika Gor and Avinash Mukherjee.

After a talent hunt, the makers zeroed in on a girl from Jamshedpur -- Pratyusha Banerjee -- to play the adult Anandi. Last week, fans waited with a bated breath to see how Pratyusha would take over the reins from Avika.

Though we saw only glimpses of Pratyusha in the last two episodes, and she has yet to prove her mettle, initial reactions suggest that she will be able to make a smooth transition from the child to the adult Anandi.

Her looks are quite different though. While Avika had a chubby, cute charm, Pratyusha is slim and attractive.

The show took a leap when Anandi\'s in-laws decided that since both Anandi and Jagya were crossing an important phase in their life (read teens) and to avoid any complexity, they should stay apart. The leap started with Anandi waiting for her husband Jagya in a desert hoping that he would come back and take her home. But nothing like that happened. Anandi is shown to be missing Jagya a lot and hoping that one day he would be back in her life. Expectedly, Anandi is now shown as a much more mature and sensible person, in contrast to the chirpy little girl we had come to love.

The leap of the show, apparently, has a purpose. The makers want to show how harmful child marriage can be and its practical problems.

In the current storyline, Anandi\'s father Khajjan Singh is shown to be still in jail and her mother goes to meet him every month. Anandi grows up to be very caring and dutiful towards her mother, and prepares food for her father. Meanwhile, Anandi\'s in-laws Bhairon and Sumitra are all set to call their daughter-in-law back after the pre-decided gap of five years.

The next week\'s episodes will make it clear whether Jagya (we will see a new face in this role as well) will be able to accept Anandi. Whether a grown-up Anandi will be able to adjust herself in her in-laws\' place or not also remains to be seen.

Let\'s wait and watch.

The ugly world of Kashmir\'s online rebels

"I know I\'m sexy," Srinagar resident Junaid Rafiqi proclaims on his Facebook page, below a professionally lit photograph that, among other things, shows off his possession of an expensive pair of Ray-Ban sunglasses.

He goes on with an enthusiasm unfettered by punctuation, spelling and grammar: "I got the looks that drives the girls wild I got the moves that really move them. I send chills up and down their spines" [sic., throughout and below].

Facebook users like Rafiqi have been sending chills down the spines of the police in Jammu and Kashmir for much of this summer. Much to the dismay of the authorities, social networks backing the cause of the Islamist-led protesters have proliferated on the Internet.

There is no evidence that social networks have been used to organise or fund the protests — but their content underlines concerns at the growing influence the religious right-wing has over the educated young people in Kashmir.

"We Hate Omar Abdullah," a network Mr. Rafiqi often participates in, gives some insight into the world of Kashmir\'s Facebook rebels. The network hosts a collection of political satire. There is, for example, a digitally-manipulated image of Paul, the celebrity octopus, picking a dead donkey over the Chief Minister in response to a question who has "more guts."

But much of the satire is venomously communal. Mr. Abdullah is repeatedly referred to as "Omar Singh" — a derisory reference derived, evidently, from the rumour that his wife is Sikh. The former Chief Minister, Farooq Abdullah, is shown offering respects at a Hindu temple, while another image caricatures the Chief Minister and his wife as pilgrims to the Amarnath shrine. The administrators of the "We Hate Omar Abdullah," quite clearly see politicians\' efforts to reach out to multiple religious communities as a betrayal.

"The Dalla [broker] family," the Ray-Ban wearing Rafiqi asserts in one post on the Facebook page, "should be hanged publicly." Elsewhere, he refers to Mr. Abdullah as a kafir, or unbeliever. In another post on the page, a member asserts that Mr. Abdullah has been denied permission for pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia because of his marriage — a canard circulated by Islamists soon after he took power.

Some networks host express calls to violence. "Everybody," exhorts the administrator of "Times Now is Anti-Kashmiri," "[the] next time you see any Times Now correspondent pick up a stone and throw that on their face!." Arnab Goswami, the channel\'s editor-in-chief, one user asserts, "should be killed." Ethnic-Kashmiri anchor Mahrukh Inayet comes in for unprintable abuse targeting her gender.

Barkha Dutt, arguably India\'s best-known English-language television journalist, also draws flak. "We hate Barkha Dutt" contains claims that her reportage on the clashes lacked balance. Much of it, though, consists of personal invective — and threats. "Hell is meant for her," writes network member Faizan Rashid, "but she should have some kinna punishment in this world as well...'stoned to death\'...wot say?"

Facebook\'s terms of use prohibit content that is hateful, threatening or incites violence. Little infrastructure, though, seems to be in place to enforce those terms.

Not all protest-linked networks promote these kinds of invective. Barring the odd comment about "Indian dogs," "I Protest Against the Atrocities on Kashmiris" has no abusive language. Most posts on this network address questions of media bias and political grievances, not individuals.

Even networks like this, though, are remarkable for the complete absence of the very kinds of serious commentary and debate they believe is wanting in India\'s mainstream print and electronic media.

There is no way of telling just who the participants on these sites are: users contacted by The Hindu, including Mr. Rafiqi, did not respond to requests to be interviewed. For the most part, though, users seem to be English-speaking and Kashmiri. Judging by their clothing and cultural idiom, are middle-class. Despite the aggressive religious chauvinism evident on the site, there is nothing to suggest substantial numbers of users support established Islamist clerics.

The police say most young people held on the charge of throwing stones do not have a high-school education, and are either unemployed or semi-employed — a class quite distinct from that of the Facebook radical.

More likely than not, official concerns at these networks is exaggerated: their scale and reach is tiny. "I Protest Against the Atrocities on Kashmiris" has 810 members — small numbers compared, for example, with the Palestine solidarity page "Palestine Freedom," which has 101,178. "We Hate Omar Abdullah" has 675 members and "Civil Disobedience 2010-Quit Kashmir Movement" 134. "Bloody Indian Media," set up to protest the reportage of the street violence in Srinagar, has 58.

It is possible, though, that the ideas they propagate reflect new ideological trends among some sections of young people in Jammu and Kashmir — a prospect which, if true, holds out a real reason for concern.

Sex tape is fake says Katrina Kaif

A few months after her sister Isabel was embroiled in a sex tape controversy, which was being circulated in her name but actually featured a look-a-like, Katrina Kaif is now the target of a similar online craze. Not surprisingly, Katrina has issued a denial.

Porn sites and forums have been going gaga over the clip, featuring a Katrina look-a-like. The clip has been tagged Katrina Kaif sex scandal in a bid to garner most hits. It has reached the download limit on a couple of portals.

Despite the fact that the girl is clearly not Kat, an online debate is on to discuss the authenticity of the clip.

\"It\'s unfair!\" says a source close to Katrina, \"People circulate videos and stories in her name to generate interest, debate and publicity. Every fair-skinned girl doesn\'t have to be Katrina or her lookalike! She finds it unfair that she\'s mostly made the target for such bizarre speculations.\"

The actress said in a statement: \"The video is disgusting and the girl clearly doesn\'t even look like me. There\'s no room for any speculation whatsoever. How can you even call her my lookalike? The girl\'s face is completely different! I think it\'s ridiculous to even talk about it.\"

At the time when a video tagged as one featuring her sister had surfaced, Katrina and her mother Suzanne Turquotte had categorically denied that the video had anything to do with Isabel. They also vowed to take legal action against anyone uploading or circulating the video under the young girl\'s name.

In 2005, there was a similar episode with Mallika Sherawat when an alleged video starring a 19-year-old girl was doing the rounds under her name. However, Mallika clearly dismissed her association with any such video.

Real life Chak De! Negi likely to coach women\'s team

Mir Ranjan Negi might get a chance to do a 'Chak De!' again. Not on reel, but for real. The sudden vacancy of the coach's post for the women's hockey team, owing to the resignation of long-time incumbent MK Kaushik over sexual harassment allegations, could pave the way for Negi to take over the reins of the women's team.

Though nothing has been finalized yet, Negi - whose chequered career has striking similarities with Kabir Khan's (Shah Rukh Khan) in the blockbuster - is believed to have sent his consent letter to Hockey India. It's not yet clear who approached whom.

However, he's not too sure if he'll be able to replicate the 'Chak De!' magic if he gets the job. \"Reel life is very different from real life. Even if I get to coach the girls, there's very little time left for the Commonwealth and Asian Games. But then, miracles do happen. I have witnessed it many times during my life.\"

He certainly has. The former India goalkeeper went into hiding after he was accused of accepting money to ensure India's 1-7 loss to Pakistan in the 1982 Asiad. He returned as goalkeeping coach for the 1998 Asian Games where the Indian men won the gold. He was goalkeeping coach of the Indian women's team which won the 2002 Commonwealth Games and assistant coach when Indian women won the Asia Cup in 2004.

Negi may well become the next coach of the women's hockey team. However, keeping with the drama that has become a constant sideshow to Indian hockey, HI secretary general Narinder Batra claimed it was Negi who approached the federation first, expressing his willingness to take up the job while Negi said he gave his consent only after he was asked.

Batra, however, said HI is not authorized to appoint the coach. \"That's the job of Sports Authority of India (SAI). We can only make recommendations. In this case, after Negi showed his interest, we asked him to send his biodata and consent letter which he has done already. We will send it to SAI,\" he said.

Negi too confirmed that he was keen to take up the assignment. \"To be frank, I was in a dilemma for some time. I was a bit apprehensive too. But life's all about taking up new challenges, and this is something so close to my heart,\" he told TOI on Thursday.

When contacted, SAI sources said nothing was decided as yet. \"It's too early to say anything.\"

Power Grid\'s FPO gets government clearance

The government has approved a 10% stake sale in state-owned transmission utility Power Grid Corporation by October this year through a follow-on public offer (FPO). The company will also issue fresh equity amounting to 10% of the existing, as per a decision taken by the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) on Thursday. The government currently holds a 86.36% stake in the company.

Union power minister Sushil Kumar Shinde told reporters that PowerGrid is likely to come out with its follow-on public offer by October. The company has already initiated the process of appointing merchant bankers for managing the issue. The follow-on public offer, which is expected to fetch Rs 8,400 crore, will help the government finance its fiscal deficit, as well as provide funds to the company for its capital expansion plans amounting to Rs 58,000 crore.

"The requirement of funds to be raised through issue of fresh equity for funding the capital expenditure for the balance Eleventh Plan period will be in the order of Rs 4,200 crore. It would result in the PGCIL meeting with the CERC-allowed norms of 30% equity contributions," according to an official statement.

Following the announcement, shares of Power Grid gained 1.6% to close the day at Rs 101.45. In October 2007, the company had raised capital through a 10% equity issue while the Centre had divested 5% of its stake.

In an effort to raise Rs 40,000 crore from disinvestment during the current financial year, the government will sell stake in about 10 more public sector companies, including IndianOil, Coal India, SAIL, RINL and Shipping Corporation.

Meanwhile, the Cabinet Committee on the Unique Identification Authority of India sanctioned funds amounting to Rs 3,023.10 crore for the second phase of the ambitious scheme. "Of this, an amount of Rs 477.11 crore would be towards recurring establishment expenditure and Rs 2,545.90 crore would be towards non-recurring project related expenditure," an official spokesperson said.

The first set of 10 crore UID numbers are expected to be issued between August 2010 and March 2011. Another 60 crore UID cards would be issued in the next three years.

BJP MP killed my son: RTI activist\'s father

Right to Information activist Amit Jethwa\'s father has alleged that a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP is behind the murder of his son. Jethwa\'s father Bikubhai Jethwa claimed that BJP MP from Junagarh Dinubhai Solanki was the brain behind the brutal killing of his son near the Gujarat High Court in Ahmedabad on Tuesday night.\"Dinubhai Solanki is behind the murder. He had been threatening us for the past seven years,\" alleged Bikubhai Jethwa.

Other RTI activists in Gujarat are angry are shocked. They want more protection on a more sustained basis as they take on the mighty and the corrupt of the land through RTI.

\"If there is publicity then those attacking me will some what be scared that it will lead to larger repurcussion. But after some days after a story and a followup we become sitting ducks again,\" RTI activist Vishwas Bhamburkar said.

Jethwa was killed by two unidentified youth when he walking towards his vehicle, after a meeting with his lawyer in a building near the Gujarat High Court.

Recently, he had filed Public Interest Litigation (PIL) in the Gujarat High Court against illegal mining. He was also passionate about wildlife conservation and raised his voice against corrupt practices in the Gir forests.

The man who is the upholder of RTI, Chief Information Commissioner Wajahat Habibullah says though it is a matter or serious concern but there is no need to panic now.

\"It\'s very distressing, it\'s shocking. The matter will have to be looked into by the local police,\" said Wajahat about Jethwa\'s murder.

But the fate of people like Amit and other whistleblowers shows how even RTI is not a protection for people who chase the truth.

67 Bihar MLAs suspended; slippers, pots flung

Sixty seven opposition MLAs in Bihar were suspended for unruly behaviour and marshalled out as utter chaos prevailed inside and outside the Assembly on Wednesday during which a slipper was flung at the Speaker and a woman member threw several flower pots around.

The slogan-shouting members, including 42 RJD MLAs, were suspended by Assembly Speaker Udai Narain Choudhry for the rest of the monsoon session with both the Assembly and the Legislative Council in the poll-bound state witnessing turmoil for the second straight day. The leaders were marshalled out one by one.

More drama prevailed outside the Legislative Council when a suspended Congress MLC Jyoti Kumari animatedly threw flower pots and created a ruckus when the watch and ward staff tried to prevent her from entering the house. A hysterical Kumari was dragged a few feet by three women watch and ward staff from the Council premises.

The scene inside was no better when RJD MLC Sanjay Prasad removed a microphone and hurled it triggering angry responses from the treasury benches.

RJD MLA R C Paswan, who was marshalled out of the Assembly, reportedly fainted at the gate of the house. He was taken in an ambulance to a government hospital.

The suspension of the MLAs came shortly after around 80 opposition members taking a cue from their opposition counterparts in Karnataka spent the night in the well of the two houses of the state legislature.

The Opposition is demanding the resignation of Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar over a CAG report which alleged financial irregularities in the state.

As the watch and ward staff lifted RJD MLA Bablu Dev, his colleagues rushed to his rescue. In the melee, a slipper was thrown towards the Speaker\'s podium. It was not immediately known who had flung the footwear which, however, did not hit the Speaker.

State RJD president Abdul Bari Siddiqui and RJD deputy leader in the Assembly Shakeel Ahmed Khan were among those suspended.

Eleven LJP members were also suspended from the Assembly.

Opposition members on Tuesday overturned desks and chairs, broke microphones and virtually came to blows with ruling BJP-JD(U) alliance MLAs on the floor of the houses.

Today\'s action against the MLAs came after they disobeyed the directive of the Speaker to let the House function.

A resolution for the suspension of the MLAs was brought in the House by state parliamentary affairs in-charge Brijendra Prasad Yadav, which was passed by voice vote amid protests by opposition members.

Later, the Speaker ordered that all MLAs protesting in the well of the House be marshalled out of the House.

The Opposition MLAs and MLCs said they would continue their dharna in both the Houses till their demand is met.

\"We will not lift the agitation till this corrupt government resigns\", RJD deputy leader in the Assembly Shakeel Ahmad Khan said.

Council Chairman T K Jha had on Tuesday suspended 14 opposition MLCs for the day.

1984 riots: Hurt, Phoolka withdraws from all victims\' cases

Just when the conviction of a political leader for the 1984 massacre seems more realistic than ever before, the advocate who spearheaded the struggle all these years, H S Phoolka, has decided to withdraw from all the riot cases. This is in response to an allegation made by the president of DSGMC, Paramjit Singh Sarna, that Phoolka had \"wasted\" the community\'s money in the course of his campaign for justice.

Phoolka\'s withdrawal decision comes two days after former Congress MP Sajjan Kumar suffered a major setback as the Delhi high court upheld a murder charge framed against him in a case in which victim Jagdish Kaur has already identified him during the trial as the leader of the mob that had killed her husband.

Speaking to TOI, Phoolka said that he was forced to think of giving up the 1984 cause as he had been \"abused and humiliated\" by Sarna on July 17 at a meeting in which several prominent Sikhs, including senior advocate K T S Tulsi, were present. \"I was hurt that when Sarna had attacked my integrity and record of service, not a single Sikh, not even my bar colleague Tulsi, came to my defence,\" Phoolka added.

The burden of Sarna\'s attack at the meeting was that when Phoolka appeared before the Justice G T Nanavati Commission on behalf of victims from 2000 to 2004, DSGMC had spent Rs 1.09 crore on the administrative expenses incurred by his team. This, he alleged, proved to be a waste as no benefit came out of it to the Sikh community.

Rubbishing this, Phoolka said much good had come out of the Nanvati probe: PM Manmohan Singh apologized for the carnage, the compensation for the families of dead victims was enhanced to Rs 10 lakh, Jagdish Tytler resigned from the Cabinet and the cases that Sajjan is currently facing were reopened on the basis of that report.

Phoolka also asserted that for all the legal work he did in connection with the carnage before various inquiry bodies and courts, \"I never charged a penny as my fee. Whatever was spent by DSGMC was on unavoidable...\" Sarna said that he had fallen out with Phoolka over a proposal to file a complaint against minister Kamal Nath as he had been found by the Nanavati Commission to have been present when a mob attacked Rakabganj Gurdwara and killed two Sikhs. Since Nath was given the benefit of the doubt by the commission, Sarna was unconvinced about Phoolka\'s suggestion to file the complaint.

Phoolka said he had now decided to write to Akal Takht, to make alternative arrangements for representing victims before courts. Tulsi, on his part, said the dispute raised by Sarna could not be taken as a reflection on Phoolka\'s immense contribution to the cause.

International brands tie up with Aisha

Bollywood has been associated with various fashion brands through their films all these years. But, the Sonam Kapoor starrer movie Aisha has managed to tie-up with high-end international brands like Salvatore Ferragamo and Christian Dior, which are usually unavailable for Hindi films. Aisha, which is co-produced by PVR Pictures and Anil Kapoor Films Co. Pvt. Ltd, is a film, which deals with a fashionable girl played by Sonam, who is also very fashionable in reel life. So, the association with big fashion brands was an integral part of the film.

Kalyani Chawla, the vice-president (marketing & communications) at Christian Dior Couture, informed that the movie produced by Rhea Kapoor will use 60 Dior dresses and accessories. These will be put on by the female lead Sonam Kapoor and other cast members. The film, which also stars Abhay Deol, will release on August 6. This move from the mass market products to high-end fashion brands, has taken place for the first time in case of brand integration. Aisha with a budget of Rs 20 crore, displays renowned fashion brands like DLF Emporio, Portico and L'Oreal Paris.

Rhea Kapoor, the producer of the film informs, "We shot the film in 67 days but six months time period is spent before the shooting to tie up with the renowned brands. These tie-ups are done during and before the scripting stage" Aisha has become the first Bollywood film to have an association with Dior to this degree. Throughout the movie, Sonam will be seen carrying a Lady Dior purse and the male lead Abhay will put on Dior suits.

Pallavi Tibrewal, the vice-president (marketing) of Portico, informs that under the Portico Aisha collection, the company will introduce 10-12 designs, which will take place around the time of launch of the movie. In fact, Portico and L'Oreal Paris are planning to promote their brands with television commercials in association with the imagery from the film.

Pak govt knows where Osama is: Hillary Clinton

Speaking from Kabul where she is convening an international donors\' conference on Afghanistan, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said she believed that Al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden was still in Pakistan. She also said Washington believed that Taliban chief Mulla Omar was also in the country.

Hillary Clinton also told a news channel that Pakistan government knows where Osama bin Laden is and that Pakistan should share that intelligence.

\"I believe (bin Laden) is here in Pakistan and it would be very helpful if we could take them (Al-Qaida leaders),\" she said, adding, \"I want those guys. I assume somebody in this (Pakistani) government, from top to bottom, does know where Bin Laden is, and I would like to know too,\"

Though the Pakistani leaders claim that the world\'s most wanted terrorist may be dead, top US officials have been maintaining that Laden and his powerful deputy Ayman al-Zawahiri are in Pakistan.

Meanwhile, speaking on the 26/11 Mumbai attacks\' interrogation, Hillary Clinton said that Pakistani-American terrorist David Headley has thrown up a revealing set of facts that have been shared with Pakistan.

\"I don\'t know the specifics (of the revelations made by Headley) but I know that it has been quite a revealing set of facts that we have shared with the Pakistani authorities,\" she said. (With agencies\' inputs)

67 killed as trains collide in India

The Home Ministry on Monday differed with Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee over the cause that led to the collision of the Uttarbanga Express with the Vananchal Express that has left 67 people dead and 121 injured at the Sainthia railway station in West Bengal.

Top Home Ministry officials shot down Ms. Banerjee\'s suspicion on the cause of the collision, which hinted at foul play. Inputs at the Home Ministry were that the signal had failed and the driver of the Uttarbanga Express seemed to have miscalculated his speed, ramming the train into the Ranchi-bound Vananchal Express. Officials said it pointed to a system failure, where both man and equipment failed.

The Home Ministry has, for the second time, negated the claim of Ms. Banerjee. It had ruled out the use of explosives in the derailment of the Jnaneswari Express and subsequent ramming by a goods train, which claimed 149 lives in May.

While most senior railway officials were away at the accident site, others who were present at the Rail Bhavan declined to comment on the Home Ministry\'s assertion, particularly because the Railway Minister herself suspected sabotage.

The officials, however, admitted that the Uttarbanga Express was speeding in excess of 60 km an hour, almost 40 km above the limit as the train had a scheduled halt at Sainthia.

These officials admitted that driver M.C. Dey had been in touch with the staff of the Rampurhat station, just ahead of Sainthia, giving the impression that he was in his senses and not affected by any intoxication. Both the driver and the assistant driver were killed in the collision.

The two collisions have together claimed 209 lives in the first four months of the current financial year, accounting for almost 80 per cent of the 248 deaths caused in various accidents.

The year 2010-11 is turning out to be a black year so far as train collisions are concerned, the death toll being the worst in the past eight years.

It had a declining trend in 2005-06, when 25 people died; in 2006-07, accidents claimed two lives and in the following year (2007-08) it came down to one. The death toll rose to nine in 2008-09 and climbed to 42 in 2009-10 when Ms. Banerjee took over from Lalu Prasad as Railway Minister.

Similarly, the injury figures too paint the Railways in a bad picture. The two collisions this year have left more than 250 people injured.

The BJP, the CPI(M), the RJD and the LJP have sought an explanation from the Prime Minister over the practicality of continuing with Ms. Banerjee as Railway Minister, charging that these collisions were the result of a system failure.

49 killed as express trains collide in West Bengal

At least 49 passengers were killed and over 150 injured when the speeding Sealdah-bound Uttarbanga Express rammed into the rear of the Vanachal Express pulling out of the Sainthia station in Birbhum district early today.Eastern Railway sources in Kolkata said that 49 passengers of the Vanachal Express were killed when the Uttarbanga Express, which was running at a high speed overshot the signal and ploughed into it.

Among the dead were 39 men, eight women and two babies, the sources said.

Officials feared that the toll could rise as three coaches, two unreserved and a luggage van, of the Vananchal Express, which was running five hours late, were smashed with some of the coaches mounting a foot overbridge.

GRP sources said that 150 passengers were injured.

Superintendent of Police Humayun Kabir, however, said that 130 passengers were injured.

The accident occurred at 1:54 am when the New Coochbehar-Sealdah Uttarbanga Express came on the same track and rammed into the Bhagalpur-Ranchi Vananchal Express which was leaving platform number four at Sainthia station, 191 km from Kolkata, Eastern Railway sources said.

The engine of the Uttarbanga Express, which was to stop at the station, telescoped into the rear of the Vananchal Express.

Engine driver MC Dey and assistant driver NK Mandal of the Uttarbanga Express besides the guard of the Vananchal Express A Mukherjee were killed, the sources said.

Dey was found dead in his seat. The engine was switched off after an hour by railwaymen.

Railway minister Mamata Banerjee, chairman of Railway Board Vivek Sahay, Railway Board member (Electrical) Sudesh Kumar and director general of Railway Health Service BK Ramteke, Eastern Railway general manager VN Tripathy and other senior officials have left for Sainthia.

Relief trains from Rampurhat, Asansol and Burdwan have left for the accident spot.

Mayawati: SP patronising criminals

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati on Saturday lashed out at the Opposition, especially the Samajwadi Party and the Congress, for tarnishing the image of the Bahujan Samaj Party government.

She alleged that the criminal elements behind the July 12 bomb attack on Minister Nand Gopal Gupta Nandi in Allahabad were patronised by the SP.

Involved in 88 cases

Talking to journalists here on Saturday, Ms. Mayawati said the Chaka block pramukh, Dilip Mishra, the alleged mastermind of the attack on Mr. Nandi was related to SP MLA Vijay Mishra, and the two were involved in 88 criminal cases.

Their illegal property of over Rs. 10 crore was attached by the Allahabad district administration recently and Mr. Vijay Mishra owned property worth Rs. 50 crore in Jasola area of Delhi, she alleged.

Dismissing the Opposition charge that the law and order situation in her regime had deteriorated, Ms. Mayawati reminded the Congress and the BJP of the terror attack on Parliament, the 26/11 terror strike in Mumbai, the killings of the former Railway Minister, L.N. Mishra, and the former Prime Minister, Indira Gandhi, and the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.

Khanna police nab Shingar Cinema blast accused

While the police are tight-lipped about the issue, dreaded militant Hamohinder Singh, wanted for various crimes including the Shingar Cinema blast, was arrested by the Khanna police on Friday.

DIG (Ludhiana Range) Dr J K Jain said: "We will give out details in a day or two. I cannot say anything before that."

Meanwhile, sources said the Khanna police has caught the man who has been on the wanted list since the arrest of Bakshish Singh alias Baba who was picked up by the Amritsar police in May this year. He was accused of masterminding the attack on the Dera Sacha Sauda head two years ago.

The Ludhiana police had declared Hamohinder as the mastermind of the October 2007 Shingar Cinema blast, which had left six dead and over thirty people injured.

He allegedly used to work for a radical magazine Sikh Shahadat.

After the blast, several names like Bhavdeep Singh, who was the first to land in police net, Gurinderjit Singh, Parminder Singh, Zorawar Singh, Gurpreet Singh, Sandeep Singh and Harmohinder Singh began to crop up.

Harmohinder, however, has eluded the police all this while. The cops even claimed that he had fled to Pakistan. A couple of months ago, the police said that Harmohinder has returned to Punjab and was spotted with Baba.

While the police is not letting out any information about the arrest, Harmohinder's family has confirmed that he has been taken by the cops.

Rajesh Kumar, a relative of the accused's wife Rajwinder Kaur, said: "Harmohinder had asked us to come and meet him near the Dhurri railway line on Thursday night. We did not inform the police as we wanted him to surrender. He, however, refused and went back. Later, we received a call that he was at his paternal aunt's house in Janta Nagar in Ludhiana. We then informed the police who raided the house and arrested him." He added: "Harmohinder told us that he had been in Pakistan all this while. It is very difficult to recognise him as he has shaved off his beard."

Harmohinder Singh's family, which resides in Indira Nagar Colony in Ludhiana, had been pressurising him to surrender.
