Why You Should Make Love Once A Year October 16, 2017 18:52

A therapist has a theory that couples who make love once a day are the happiest. So he tests it at a seminar by asking those assembled, “How many people here make love once a day?” Half the people raise their hands, each of them grinning widely. “Once a week?” A third of the audience members raise their hands, their grins a bit less vibrant. “Once a month?” A few hands tepidly go up. Then he asks, “OK, how about once a year?” One man in the back jumps up and down, jubilantly waving his hands. The therapist is shocked - this disproves his theory. “If you make love only once a year,” he asks, “why are you so happy?” The man yells, “Today’s the day!” SUPRAJA

Rabri Devi Skips ED Summons For Third Time In IRCTC Case:- In connection with alleged irregularities in a 2006 IRCTC hotels maintenance contract case, the ED summons were skipped by RJD Chief Lalu Prasad’s wife and former Bihar Chief Minister, Rabri Devi for the third time. Rabri Devi was summoned by the Enforcement Directorate, on October 11, after she failed to appear before it last Wednesday. Her son and former Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav was grilled for nine hours, a day before that by the financial probe agency, in connection with alleged irregularities in the IRCTC contract case. After he was questioned by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) for seven hours in connection with the case, the ED officials questioned him four days later. In connection with the case, the CBI also questioned Lalu Prasad Yadav, for over eight hours. An ED official told a leading news channel: “We shall again summon Tejashwi and Rabri Devi for questioning in the case.” Tejashwi Yadav has asked the agency’s officials for eight-weeks time to appear before it again, said the official. “However, we would call him soon next week,” the official added. Following the CBI FIR in the matter, a separate case had been registered by the ED on July 27, under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act and for alleged transfer of money through shell companies, started investigating Lalu Prasad and others. A corruption case had been filed by the CBI on July 5, against Lalu Prasad, his wife Rabri Devi and Tejashwi Yadav for alleged irregularities in the allotment of contracts for Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) hotels in Ranchi and Puri in 2006 to a private firm. Lalu Prasad Yadav was the then Railway Minister. The contracts were given to Sujata Hotels, a company owned by Vijay and Vinay Kochhar - both named in the CBI FIR as accused. The contracts were taken in the form of a three-acre commercial plot at a prime location in Bihar’s Patna district, as bribe, said the CBI. A preliminary CBI inquiry found that the land was sold by the Kochhars to Delight Marketing Company and payment was arranged through Ahluwalia Contractors and its promoter Bikramjeet Singh Ahluwalia, another accused person. The ED has since questioned Ahluwalia. Delight Marketing, was later taken over by Rabri Devi and Tejashwi Yadav, alleges the CBI. The Deligh Marketing originally, bought the property from the Kochhar. Sarla Gupta, wife of the Rashtriya Janata Dal chief’s close associate and former Union Minister Prem Chand Gupta and a director of Delight Marketing, is a co-accused in the case, apart from then IRCTC Managing Director P.K. Goel. SUPRAJA

BJP MLA’s Controversial Remarks On Taj Mahal October 16, 2017 15:26

BJP MLA’s Controversial Remarks On Taj Mahal:- A controversy has been stirred by BJP MLA Sangeet Som, by saying that Taj Mahal is a blot on Indian culture. He misquoted history by saying that Shah Jahan, builder of the 17th century marble mausoleum, had jailed his father and wanted to wipe out Hindus from the country. These remarks by the Sardhana MLA in Meerut comes in wake after the Taj Mahal was removed from the list of attractions, by the Uttar Pradesh government, in its tourism booklet. “Many people were disappointed that the Taj Mahal was removed from the UP tourism booklet. What history are we talking about? Whose history? “The creator of the Taj Mahal (Shah Jahan) imprisoned his father. He wanted to wipe out all Hindus from India. If these people are part of our history, then it is very unfortunate. (Video Source: hmtv News) “I guarantee you that we will change this history,” Som was shown saying in an undated viral video, apparently addressing a public gathering. The BJP leader was addressing a gathering in Meerut, as per the TV reports. He wrongly quoted history saying Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan had jailed his father. It was Aurangzeb, Shah Jahan’s son who had dethroned and captivated his  father inside the Agra Fort. In memory of his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal, the Taj was built by Shah Jahan. It is considered as one of the Seven Wonders of the World and a UNESCO World Heritage site. The BJP is spreading hatred due to the narrow minded approach of its leaders, alleged the Opposition parties. Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi slammed at the BJP. He said that the same group of traitors built the Red Fort. “Will Narendra Modi stop hoisting National Flag from there? Can Modi and Yogi ask Tourists not to visit Taj Mahal?,” he questioned. The UP government, after the backlash, declared Taj Mahal is a part of India’s proud heritage. The views expressed by Sangeet Som are just his point of view and neither UP CM Yogi Adityanath nor his Government agree with them, said the UP government. Taj Mahal is declared as the major tourist destination in the country by the UP government. It claims to be committed to the upliftment of Agra and Taj Mahal.   SUPRAJA
