Yakub Memon hanged: Does this give happiness to them July 30, 2015 09:30

Yakub Memon, the prime convict in Mumbai serial blasts case, was hanged this morning in Nagpur central jail at around 6.30am. Relating to Mumbai serial blasts case, Yakub Memon is the one, to be awarded the death sentence by the Supreme Court, in spite of his several attempts for being out of the case. Yakub Memon case: Midnight Drama As a last attempt, Yakub Memon lawyers tried to save Yakub, by filing a special petition at around 11.50 pm yesterday. The Supreme Court judges assembled by 12.20am and the lawyers of Yakub Memon said to postpone the punishment for two weeks, saying that he needs time to spend with his family and other relations. They even argued that, the Supreme Court ordered lesser punishment to the criminals of the similar case. Supreme Court judge warns Yakub Memon lawyers After considering the lawyers petition, the judge said that, “the judgment is given, considering all the law points. Yakub is given the number of attempts to defend himself. Finally, death sentence is proved to be legal in this case. So if you still try to save Yakub, it would mean that, you are trying to mislead the case.” Yakub Memon was hanged before the estimated time Earlier it was heard that, he would be hanged at 7am in Nagpur jail today, but it seems, there are changes in the last minute and so he was hanged 30 minutes before the said time, i.e., 6.30am. Yakub dead body will be handed over to his family, on a condition that, it will not be used for protests. A few opposed Yakub Memon’s death sentence VIPs like MP Owaisi, Salman Khan puts direct and indirect satires respectively, on the judicial system of the country, opposing Yakub’s death sentence. It is literally shameless to support a criminal, who is the reason of 257 deaths and restless sleep of thousands of families, since two decades. Will Yakub death sentence give happiness to them? Will this death sentence really give happiness to those families, who lost their people in Mumbai serial blasts case? The answer might not be completely yes. The reason behind this is, the years it took to award the punishment. After more than two decades of the incident, Yakub is finally sentenced to death. During this time, there might be many families, who have already left their lives and so missed the happiness of this judgment. Reforms in judicial system Many reforms should take place in the judicial system, but primarily, the quickness in declaring the right judgment should be made. What is that made the officials wait for decades to hang Yakub, when he himself said that, he committed the blast? Why should the person involved in crime and the reason for hundreds of deaths, given a chance to defend himself through petitions?As a common man, I hope that the country’s judicial system finds answers to these questions soon.By Phani

Tips to fix a broken relationship July 29, 2015 18:56

Relationships are so delicate and one must be careful to hold them longer. Usually minor issues and simple misunderstandings can break relationship at any point of time. To avoid them the partners must make adjustments, forgiveness and understanding. If anyone is missed from this list, then it is difficult to get back into a relationship. Here are some secret tips to strengthen your broken relationship. Find reason behind your breakup: It is important to know the main reason behind breakup to resolve any issue. As without knowing the root cause, relationship issues cannot be repaired. Once you identify the reason and the element that lead to the breakup, work on it and find out the way to resolve it. Experts say that the process of figuring out the reasons of breakup can be much effective if made mutual. Forgiving is Magical: Once you identify the key mistake, the next step is to forgive the mistake of your partner. It will lead to live a new life and new relationship but if you still hold on to the mistake committed by the partner, then it may cause another breakup in the future. If necessary adapt to a change that makes you and your partner happy. Make commitment: Once you get back in the track, let your partner know the new resolutions and decisions. Consistency of commitments is very much required to keep the warmth of relationships ever remaining. But do remember to follow them regularly and not to repeat the same mistake. Mould yourself: Always don’t think to change your partners mind as you desire, instead it is easy and good to change yourself. Changing oneself doesn't mean being submissive to the partner, but following a better way is crucial to be in a more satisfying relationship. If your partner is willing to change, then you can even implement certain changes in the partner. Maintain communication: Most of the issues can be resolved if communication is right between the partners. If any misunderstands or issues arise between the partners, it is advised not to cut the communication between partners. Do not try to defend or resist the arguments of the partner and accuse each other for all the mistakes. Let the communication be creative, rather critical.By Lizitha

Exclusive: No way to save small cinema! July 29, 2015 18:44

A film that runs for 100 days was considered a hit, 175 days a blockbuster and one year as an epic. What is that strategy, which changed this trend in the film industry now? let us get into detail.Firstly, the film budget is increasing day by day. The producers are coming forward to invest crores on star heroes, as per the market. So they are not able to risk, waiting for long, to bring back the investment, along with the profits. It is for, this reason, the producers are releasing the films in number of theaters on the first day itself, and are trying to bring back all the investment and profits, so that though the film does not get a positive talk later, the producers might have already be on the safe side, recovering the investment from the opening day collections itself.   This logic works out in big star studded films, but what about small films? They cannot release their films in number of theaters, like big ones and so are failing in recovering the investments, if the film does not secure a success. Big cinema is killing the small cinema  In fact, this might be the reason of why the producers are avoiding small films and opting only big films. Fantastic actors like Srikanth, Jagapathi Babu, who are identified for family entertainers, are not able to look forward to do them, as no producer is daring to invest on such entertainers. If though, any such films are being made, those films will be thrown out of the theaters, if other big movies get released. Where is the fault? Where is the way to save a small cinema? An issue which has to be thought upon, for sure.   By Phani
