Teaser talk : Masss April 25, 2015 13:56

Failure is a stepping stone of success. A failure gives a strength to be more careful. Especially in the film industry if this logic is missed out, the consequences will cost crores. Surya's previous film Sikandar was a disaster in both Tamil and also in Telugu. The huge stars like Surya and Samantha also could not help the film in any way as the script was considered to be very old. So this time, Surya is not taking any chance for another failure. So he planned a movie with the well known director Venkat Prabhu. The movie unit had released a teaser recently and it is now trending on all the social networking sites. The teaser begins showing Surya and from there picks up to the montage shots, fights, chasing and lot more. Throughout the trailer, Surya is shown in three different roles. At the end of the trailer, Surya is seen as a ghost with the sharp and long teeth. Previously Gajini was an experimental film in Surya's career and it garnered a huge success in Telugu too. Later even the Tamil hit films of Surya could not manage to do well in Telugu. Again after so long time, now it is 'Masss' which is another experimental film and and it is releasing soon in Telugu too amidst of high expectations. by Phani

India to be renamed as ‘Bharat’, the right step April 25, 2015 11:52

Supreme Court has sought a response from the government on a petition seeking a declaration that the Republic be called ‘Bharata’ instead of ‘India’. A Bench led by Chief Justice of India H.L. Dattu issued notice to the Centre and all the States on a public interest petition filed by social activist, Niranjan Bhatwal from Maharashtra, that the public should have an “unambigous understanding” that the country’s name is ‘Bharata.’ It sought a clarification on the phrase “India, that is, Bharat shall be a Union of States” used in Article 1 of the Indian Constitution. The petitioner represented by Ajay G. Majithia and Rahul Pandey said there the word ‘India’ is not a literal translation of the word ‘Bharata.’ Besides the country, both historically and in the Scriptures, is known as ‘Bharata.’The PIL said that the Constituent Assembly had debated many names for the new-born Republic, and some of them were “Bharat, Hindustan, Hind and Bharatbhumi or Bharatvarsh and names of that kind”. “The country has one principal name, which is historically significant, that is ‘Bharat’. The first Article of the Constitution of India states that 'India, that is Bharat, shall be a Union of States', implicitly codifying ‘Bharat’ name for the Republic of India,” the petition contended.It is a welcome move to rename ‘India” as ‘Bharat’, because Bharat is what the country has been known for centuries. To uphold and preserve the culture and traditions of the country, Bharat will be appropriate. The central government as well as the state governments and union territories should give the consent to rename ‘India’ as ‘Bharat’. India is a name given by the British during the colonial rule. It is too late that we have to erase the dark memories of eh colonial era. Even in the puranas the country is known as ‘Bharat’. The culture and tradition of the country denotes as ‘Bharat’. The majority of the people of the country also would like to know their country as ‘Bharat’. The name ‘Bharat’ to this country gives some prosperity due to its perfect numerological significance. There will a hue and cry against the initiative and politicization of the event. But the Supreme Court has to take a bold decision for the prosperity of the country. This will definitely put our country in the top of prosperity.By Premji

Telangana Inter 2nd year results date April 25, 2015 11:30

Regarding the Inter first year results, Telangana government had already announced the results and the percentage was increased slightly when compared to the previous years. Now its the time to announce the 2nd year results. According to the reports, the Board of Intermediate is making all the arrangements to declare the 2nd year results on 28th or 29th of this month. There is no official confirmation yet, but the likely declaration of the result dates might be in any of these two days.  After the declaration of the 1st year results in Telangana, within a gap of day or two, the results were also declared in Andhra Pradesh. In the same way, now after the declaration of the Inter 2nd year results in Telangana on any of the specified dates, the Andhra Pradesh too will declare the results with not much gap.This is the first time to declare the intermediate results separately after the bifurcation of the united Andhra Pradesh into Telangana and Andhra. It will continue for all the future years. But presently there are no much discrepancies on this issue but there may be serious future consequences if the percentage differences are high among both the students of the state. TRS cannot allocate time to declare results : TRS leader Kadiyam Srihari announced the 1st year results in Telangana and Minister Ghanta announced them in the Andhra Pradesh state. In the same way, these results are supposed to be released by the same leaders, but in the present conditions, TRS ministers are completely involved in the plenary meetings and are also getting ready to celebrate the TRS party formation day. All the arrangements are grandly made like never before as this is the first time to celebrate the party formation day after the TRS had come into power. So the Telangana minister might not be available to dedicate the time for releasing the results.By Phani

Vatican on al-Qa'ida scare April 25, 2015 11:03

Italy dismantled an alleged Islamist terrorist network with links to al-Qa'ida, claiming that the extremists had planned to attack the Vatican. Italian authorities said the network included two men who were bodyguards of Osama bin Laden before he was killed in a raid by US Special Forces in Pakistan in 2011. Investigators said the suspects belonged to "an organisation dedicated to transnational criminal activities inspired by al-Qa'ida and other radical organisations, pursuing armed struggle against the West and insurrection against the current government of Pakistan". The principal members of the network were allegedly Khan Sultan Wali, a shopkeeper and long-term resident of the Sardinian port of Olbia, and an unidentified imam who lived in Brescia in northern Italy.Nine suspects were arrested during the early morning raids across the country, while another nine were being sought, three of whom are believed to be in Italy. All were Pakistanis and Afghans.Police intercepted telephone conversations between the suspects which gave "signals of some preparation for a possible attack" against the Holy Se. In the wiretaps, the suspects discussed launching "a big jihad in Italy", said Mario Carta, a senior police officer. They also used the word "baba” a possible reference to the Pope. The extremist network has been planning to launch a suicide bomb attack against the Vatican in 2010, when Pope Benedict XVI was head of the Roman Catholic Church, said Mauro Mura, a prosecutor in Cagliari, Sardinia.The purported attack may have been called off after police in Sardinia conducted a raid on the home of one of the alleged al-Qa'ida sympathisers in March 2010, and possibly have scared off the extremists. Vatican said that since the alleged attack plan was dated five years back, it had no particular concerns about the security of Pope Francis, who succeeded Pope Benedict two years ago.Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) has released several videos in which it says it aims to conquer Rome, enslave Christians and raise the black flag of the caliphate over St Peter's Basilica. Pietro Paroli, the Vatican secretary of state, said: "We are all exposed and we are all afraid but the Pope is very tranquil in this. The biggest fear is that innocent people may be affected. But I don't seem to perceive great concern in the Vatican, although of course you have to be careful."By Premji
