Irresponsible customer care service turns 1 Crore Toyota Land Cruiser into donkey cart July 06, 2015 16:51

When the Surat based wealthy builder Tushar Ghelani was among the first 20 personalities who owned Rs 1 Crore Land Cruiser five years ago, he couldn’t have expected that one day the SUV will be turned into a donkey cart.The owner of Nanavati Toyota persuades Tushar to buy the ultra-expensive car. He even offered the builder various special services. However, the promises went futile and things changed worse thereafter.The key lock of the car stopped working just a few days after purchasing the car. The car dealer charged Rs 1500 for the battery of the key lock, which actually costs Rs 50 in the market. He took five days to for the replacement.That’s not it. Car requires a change in liner after every five thousand kilometers. When Tushar asked the dealer to get a liner of his car, he took his sweet time. Irritated with the irresponsible customer care service, he chose a creative way of protest. He got his car pulled by donkeys.Tushar said he pays Rs 8 lakh per year as insurance. But due to dealer’s apathy, his expensive car is no better than a donkey cart. He said he regrets buying this car.“If I had bought a Nano, it would have been better. At least, I would have got its part easily,” he said.The dealer is not ready to talk on the issue. He says the company has restricted him from talking.Toyota shot an ad featuring a Donkey in 2012. To their surprise, the advertisement had won many international awards. But the same company’s car is now being pulled by Donkeys in the very presence of media ruins the reputation of the company.Shiv Sena’s Raj Thackeray, Liquor Baron Vijay Mallya, Indian Cricketer Navjot Singh Siddhu, and Politician Jyotiraditya Scendia were also among the top 20 who owned the car. - Manohar

Greeks Challenges Europe with a denial for Bailout July 06, 2015 14:56

In a historic vote, Greeks gave a major blow to the Europe Leaders by delivering a shocking denial to the bailout deal offered by the nation’s creditors. However, the decisive rejection could redefine the Greece’s place in Europe and shake the continent’s financial stability. As people gathered to celebrate in Athens' central Syntagma Square, the Interior Ministry reported that with more than 90 percent of the vote tallied, 61 percent of the voters had said no to a deal that would have imposed greater austerity measures on the beleaguered country.The no votes carried virtually every district in the country, handing a sweeping victory to Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, a leftist who came to power in January vowing to reject new austerity measures, which he called an injustice and economically self-defeating. Late last month he walked away from negotiations in frustration at the creditors' demands, called the referendum and urged Greeks to vote no as a way to give him more bargaining power.While Tsipras now appears to have his wish, his victory in the referendum settled little, since the creditors' offer is no longer on the table. There remains the possibility that they could walk away, leaving the Greece facing default, financial collapse and expulsion from the Euro zone and, in the worst case, from the European Union.Many praised the concept as it allows the public to decide any major issues that affects the nation. They argue that the Government cannot go by itself in such sensitive issues. They even urged that nations like India should also have this concept, so that all un-educated people cannot make law as they want.But there is another version that condemns the Greeks action. “This is a very dangerous trend. How can people take loan and spend extravagantly and refuse to pay back. If this is the case, people enjoying on someone's money will increase. European leaders should be strict to teach Greece a lesson. The European Union should just seal the border and not allow any Greece to migrate. Stop all their Aids and let them realize that there is nothing called as Free Lunch.”, they said. - Manohar

On that note, the police strengthened the security at the Cherlapally jail and are not in a mood to spare any disturbances at the jail surroundings. Now, the police reportedly said that, Bhatkal wrote a note on the paper and threw it out.  However, the police, who observed this, took the note into their handover. Amidst of the heavy security, Bhatkal was taken to Ranga Reddy court this morning. Even then, he tried to make the attempt, but however, failed to do so. Keeping this in mind, the police are being more and more alert in Bhatkal case and are presently working out a plan of transferring him to the Rajasthan jail upon PT warrant.  Andhrawishesh viewIt seems, Bhatkal is making all possible attempts to escape from jail and not giving up, however tight the situation is. At this minute, transferring him to another jail might be a tough task to deal with, as any disturbances are possible during the travelling. In fact, in the near future, it might be the only chance for Bhatkal to escape, so unless eyeing upon him second to second, this might not be worked out. By Phani

Diabetes medication may help prevent obesity, says study July 06, 2015 13:32

According to a new study performed by the Columbia University Medical Centre scientists, it was revealed that ‘a drug to treat diabetes can help obese individuals to shed weight’. With the recent research, a drug called Liraglutide was found to reduce at least five percent of body weight in over 60 percent of study participants. To prove this, the researchers randomly assigned 3,731 men and women with a body mass index (BMI) of at least 30, or a BMI of at least 27 if they also had high cholesterol or high blood pressure, to receive a 3.0-milligram dose of liraglutide daily, or a placebo shot. After 56 weeks, the participants on liraglutide lost an average of 8.3 kg, compared with 2.9 kg for the people on the placebo. Among the patients on liraglutide, 33% lost at least 10% of their body weight, whereas just 11% of the placebo group lost that much.Nausea, diarrhoea and gall bladder related problems are the common side effects seen in the patients with medication. But the researchers noted that these could have been due to their above-average weight loss.The study was published in the New England Journal of Medicine. By Lizitha

Chatrapathi theme to Baahubali! July 06, 2015 13:12

The two brothers clash for the control of a kingdom is Baahubali all about. While Baahubali (Prabhas) rules the Kakatiya dynasty, his brother Bharata (Rana), who is jealous of Baahubali’s status tries to kill him and occupy the top chair in the kingdom.    Baahubali, who came to know Bharatha’s desire to become the king, leaves the kingdom for him and turns Siddha (the attire in which we have seen Prabhas in the waterfall scene in the trailer). Later from a few of the emotional scenes with his brother, Rana realizes the nature of Baahubali and curses himself and finally approaches Baahubali. The story ends when Baahubali re-took the charge as ruler of the Kakatiya dynasty. Previously, in Rajamouli and Prabhas combination, Chatrapathi movie dealt with the relationship between two brothers, where one is shown as baddy and finally turning good. That film is a big success in Prabhas career. May be with the same intention, Rajamouli might have decided to film the similar theme (brothers’ sentiment) with Prabhas again with a bigger budget. Though the theme is similar, it would obviously differ from the previous film, as Baahubali is dealing with the history. The days have already come into the fingers, just four days to watch the Indian prestigious epic Baahubali.  By Phani
