Chiru along with 80’s stars August 31, 2015 11:48

A small get-together with the old friends will memorize all the old moments again and recap the wonderful moments you had at that time. The same thing was happened when the Kollywood, Tollywood and Malayalam stars of 80’s have met on a single platform. You can observe Mega Star Chiranjeevi, Venkatesh, Jayasudha, Sumalatha, Suman, Naresh and many more in the picture above. The occasion was held at Nina Reddy guest house, ECR Chennai. Of course as guessed, the dress code of the occasion is red and that is the reason for all our stars being spotted in red. Chiranjeevi is spotted with red and black combination shirt and Naresh with red coat over white shirt, Venkatesh with red inner and so. But however red is a common colour in all the guests. Khusboo lungi dance is heard to be the highlight of the occasion.  In fact, on Chiranjeevi birthday celebrations held recently, the dress code is black coat and black tie. That is the reason for all our stars like Pawan Kalyan, VV Vinayak, Trivikram, Manchu Lakshmi are spotted in black. But a few of the guests however missed the rule and attended the party with their personal choice of colour.    However, whatever be the attire, it is the fun they had, meeting all the old friends, would actually matter finally.   By Phanindra

Master plan: MP Kavitha urges Naidu to join hands August 31, 2015 09:31

Nizamabad MP Kavita criticized the central government for not able to grant the special packages to Telangana state.On Sunday, speaking to the media, Kavitha said, “I appealed to the Centre not to discriminate against the new state in providing financial help. We are very much keen to co-operate the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government in the country. Telangana people suffered a lot during the Telangana movement, so the centre should keep this in mind, and come forward to support the state.”Not stopping there, she even said, “Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu should stop acting against Telangana state. Due to the failure of the previous governments, both the Telugu states are suffering due to the lack of water. So it is not right to corner TRS government projects in this issue. Instead, join hands with the Telangana government in pressurizing the centre, for the benefit of both the Telugu states.” Naidu, fight tight against the centre for AP special status - Kavitha Kavitha even spoke about the AP special status issue. “Naidu’s silence on the issue has become a curse to the state. She urged Naidu not face the insults and start fighting against the centre. “The TS government is ready to resolve any dispute with AP provided Mr Naidus stop interfering in Telangana affairs,” she said.    What is the reason for Kavitha to show concern on AP?   It is to be remembered that, many times in the past, Naidu said that he is ready to join hands with Telangana government and thus collectively develop both the Telugu states. But in those days, no one from the government responded to Naidu. Now, Kavitha is backing Naidu to collectively fight against the centre. Instead of special status, special package is already announced to the AP government. The same special package is now demanded by the Telangana state. But as the state is a new one, centre is not willing to come forward. So at this time, the Telangana government might felt joining hands with AP government is the only option to get the funds and that might be the reason for Kavitha to urge Naidu to join the hands.By Phanindra

Air pollution affects kid’s academic performance, finds study August 29, 2015 16:16

According to a new study, the researchers have found that children exposed to toxic air pollutants at home are more likely to have lower grades. The results of the study were published in the academic journal Population and Environment."Air pollution makes children sick, which leads to absenteeism and poor performance in school. The other hypothesis is that chronic exposure to air toxics can negatively affect children's neurological and brain development," said the study's co-author Sara Grineski, associate professor of sociology and anthropology at University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) in the US.To prove this, the researchers analysed academic performance and sociodemographic data for 1,895 fourth and fifth grade children living in El Paso, Texas. They used the Environmental Protection Agency’s National Air Toxics Assessment to estimate children’s exposure to toxic air pollutants, such as diesel exhaust, around the location of their homes.The researchers finally noticed that children who were exposed to high levels of motor vehicle emissions from cars, trucks and buses on roads and highways were found to have significantly lower GPAs.By Lizitha
