Bollywood’s top actress Priyanka Chopra has achieved fame through her hard work and she emerged as one of the leading actress. Priyanka Chopra shifted her base to Los Angeles, now that her performance in the American series Quantico has been so enthusiastically received.However to read an excessive welcome into the American Dream through this one series, seems not only premature but foolhardy. Quantico works because it's the role of an athletic agile half-Indian American government recruit. And Priyanka Chopra plays the role with gusto, making us forget the embarrassing fiasco of her attempts to compete with Lady Gaga in the American pop scene. A Bollywood filmmaker who has worked with Priyanka Chopra warns, "We've seen other flash-in-the-pan successes in the West. Barring Irrfan Khan, no Indian actor has a career in American cinema. If Priyanka plans to move between two continents, she must be warned that even A R Rahman left Bollywood confused by his long absences”.At the moment Priyanka has only two Bollywood projects Sanjay LeelaBhansali'sBajiraoMastani and Prakash Jha's Jai Gangaajal. In both she is said to have held her own. It’s tough time for PC to decide to stay back in Bollywood or move her base to Hollywood
While addressing the students and faculty at the Columbia University, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said that along with a rational rate of taxation, more banking transactions and making PAN card compulsory for payments over a threshold limit will go a long way in tackling the problem of domestic black money. He promised a rational tax rate for individuals and lowering of corporate tax to 25 percent flat in four years beginning next fiscal year, along with removal of exemptions except those that encourage individual savings. The Finance Minister said that the world needs "additional shoulders" other than China to push growth and this presents an opportunity for India. While referring to the problem of black money, the Finance Minister said, "The first step is you rationalise your rates and have rational rate of taxation which helps you in making sure that people comply." "The second factor is that the nature of the economy is itself changing so more and more banking transactions, payment gateways are a reality, all this is going to incentivize and a lot of economy is going to go through the banking transaction as a result of this." "As far as corporate taxes are concerned, once corporate tax rates go down the exemptions will have to be phased out," he said. "These are those corporate exemptions which people get. Bulk of the litigation and discretion is around those exemptions," he added. By Premji
Takaaki Kajita of Japan and Arthur McDonald of Canada has won the Nobel Prize in physics for the experiments showing that neutrinos change identities. The Nobel was awarded "for the discovery of neutrino oscillations, which shows that neutrinos have mass”. "The discovery has changed our understanding of the innermost workings of matter and can prove crucial to our view of the universe," said a press release. "Compared to theoretical calculations of the number of neutrinos, up to two thirds of the neutrinos were missing in measurements performed on Earth. Now, the two experiments discovered that the neutrinos had changed identities. The discovery led to the far-reaching conclusion that neutrinos, which for a long time were considered massless, must have some mass, however small," said the press release. The winners will share the 8 million Swedish kronor (about $960,000) prize money with one half going to Mr. McDonand and the other to Mr Kajita. Both the winners will also get a diploma and a gold medal at the annual award ceremony on Dec. 10, the anniversary of the death of, prize founder Alfred Nobel. By Premji
Five-year-old Anmol Swami is the Google boy of Meerut. He doesn't really care to answer the questions to the awestruck people who bombards him with questions. "Who is the prime minister of India," someone will ask. To which, he keeps a straight face and will start not with Narendra Modi but with Jawaharlal Nehru, then coming down to the current BJP PM. Sometimes, just to indulge himself, Anmol will reverse the order and blurt out the names. "Anmol did not utter a single word till he turned three," recalled his mother Rachna Swami. "We took him to a doctor who advised us to admit him to a school. Soon he began to speak, but not just using small words. He would talk in full sentences." Anmol surprised his family when one day as his mother was teaching his elder sister some general knowledge on countries and capitals, he, while playing, memorised it all. Rachna said, "I was teaching my daughter some GK questions. Anmol was in the same room listening to it. The next day when I started asking my daughter the same questions as revision, Anmol interrupted and started answering instead. That was when we thought, 'Hey, what's going on here'." BJP's UP chief, Laxmikant Bajapai said that, "I have written to CM Akhilesh Yadav, requesting for some monetary grants for a talented boy like Anmol. He has been honoured by various bodies, but no government help has come his way. I hope this will lead to something positive for the 5-year-old." By Premji
The Kotak Mahindra Bank has recently detected a massive fraud through which 1,730 transactions worth Rs 2.84 crore were carried out using credit cards that was never issued by the bank. The cards, were fabricated by the fraudsters and used for online shopping and making payments in seven countries viz. Canada, USA, UK, Germany, Brazil, France and India, between July 2 and September 10. The transactions were through 580 cards. The internal probe by the bank has revealed that the cards were created by stealing the data from a newly created series of unissued cards, which falls within the BIN (Bank Identification Number) range. A complaint was lodged by the bank's credit card division chief manager Tanmay Sawant with the Bandra-Kurla Complex (BKC) cyber police station on October 2. Investigators probing the case suspect that the bank's BIN range card numbers may have been compromised. The complaint stated, "The new card series order was raised by the bank's product team and an order was given to DZ Card India Ltd at Gurgaon that has acquired the contract to create our bank cards. We have generated and registered three BIN Range (numbers) of the new cards (Visa and MasterCard). Unknown persons forged and fabricated (the) cards and used the same as genuine." On September 8, the bank has noticed the suspicious transactions and suspicion was further raised when no settlement was made for the transactions after payments were made through the cards, investigators said.

A Delhi-based logistics company had reported in the month of July, that 600 high-end mobile phones were missing from a shipment sourced from Hong Kong. The airport police has failed to track the missing phones and the matter was reported to the Delhi police, which has formed a special team to investigate the case.

Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose’s family had approached British authorities demanding of making public all the files relating to the sudden disappearance of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose in 1945. The UK government has sought more time to decide, whether to declassify the secret files in its possession on Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. “My sister Madhuri Bose has approached the government of UK. She has already received several responses admitting that there were files on Subhash Bose but they would require more time to take a decision about the declassification,” Netaji’s grandnephew Surya Kumar Bose said. “In post-war India, Subhash Chandra Bose was a threat to Nehru and Patel. Hence the classified files on Subhash are of immense importance,” he said. “We do not know if all the files were opened up or some were eaten up by moths or bureaucrats. This move will certainly put pressure on the Prime Minister to open up his Pandora’s box! But it would be very much more difficult for Narendra Modiji to open up all the classified Bose files,” said Surya from Berlin. “I think Mamata Banerjee has taken a very good and welcome step in declassifying all the files in the custody of the West Bengal government. There may have been the political motivation behind this very bold move, but we must give her credit for doing so,” said Surya. “We shall continue the movement till sufficient pressure has been built up for the Centre to comply with our demands and the demand of the people of India,” he said.
