BJP Chief Of Bihar Says, Any Finger Raised Against PM Modi Should Be Chopped

If any hand or finger is raised against our Prime Minister Narendra Modi, that person’s hand or finger should be chopped off, the minister of ruling party BJP in Bihar Mr. Nityanand said. The parliamentarian later clarified on his statement saying he had just used a figure of speech when his statement started receiving criticism.

 

The MP from Bihar, Mr. Rai while addressing a function where Deputy Chief Minister Mr. Sushil Modi was also present made this statement. He said, “Every citizen of this country must be proud that a Garib Ka Beta has risen from being from a humble simple family to becoming the Prime Minister of the country”. He said, “unki ore uthnewalli har ungli ko, har haath ko hum saab log milkar ya toh todh denge aur zroorat padi toh kaat bhi denge” (Any finger or hand raised towards PM Modi, we will either break their hand or will chop their finger) he shouted, twitching his finger.

Mr. Rai is not afraid of the threat he gave. “Those who are anti-poor and anti-national would have an objection to the statement.” He said in a statement, “PM Modi is a messiah for all the poor. All those raising fingers against swabhimaani and poor, they are raising finger at PM Modi. It is our Prime Minister Narendra Modi who demolished poverty, black money, and corruption from the country”. So, what I said was a proverb, I meant there isn’t any space for such ill practices in the country.

When the BJP leader was asked to apologize, he was puzzled, he said, “If people don’t understand what can I do, they should understand that in what sense was the statement given. What I said was not that bad, that I am getting threats from people that they will bury me.”

The remark came close to a massive argument over a leader of BJP, Surajpal Amu in Haryana, announcing a sum of 10 Crore for the heads of director Sanjay Leela Bhansali and actress Deepika Padukone amidst of Rajput protest against the movie Padmavati.

Mr. Amu has been demanded with an explanation by the BJP, who says he gave the statement, not as someone who holds a post in the ruling part but, as a Rajput.

Every Actor Has A Certain Shelf Life: Akashay Khanna

Akashay Khanna steals the show every time with his unusual characters; while he plays on screen, be it as a hero or as a supporting actor, Akashay Khanna is always at his best in every role. Akashay Khanna said, “Every actor comes with a shelf life, which is written by the audiences that becomes their destiny.” “As per the audience’s likes and dislikes an actor’s stay in the film industry can range from five years to fifty years,” said the forty-two-year-old actor.

The shelf life of every actor is written in their destiny, said Akashay while giving an interview. I have been working as an actor in this industry for so many years, I have worked with so many actors and actresses. But, now many of those actors don’t have work. To be a working actor is more than enough for me.

Shelf life of those actors has now expired. But, even today, Rishi Kapoor and Lata Mangeshkar are in demand. It is the audience who decides whether they want to see you more on screen or not, said Akashay. For his versatile acting, Akashay has always been praised irrespective of how did the film do on the screen. My intentions are always at my best, in whatever character I do, said Akashay in an interview.

Whenever an individual decides to do a film, he/she obviously wants it to be a good quality film that would be liked by the audiences. The intention of every single person involved with the film is positive and they don’t work on the project thinking the film would not do good, there is no negative thought at all. No one works on a project deciding to make it substandard.

After the work is done on the filmmaker’s part, the film is shown to the audience for whom the film is actually made. Now, it is up to them whether they like it or not. The reaction of the audience cannot be predicted and judged. The actor said he purposely chose to switch to playing character roles, as he further wanted to try his hands on supporting roles as well.

As I had not been working on any film for a long time, I had decided to start with playing small roles in initial two to three movies. I don’t just want to enter in a bad shape not being able to give good performance. I want myself to be well oiled.

The quality of my roles in the recent movies was not compromised, be it in Ittefaq, Mom, or Dishoom, as I don’t want to compromise with my roles. The roles might not be of lead actor, but neither were my roles unimportant and they did create an impact on the audience that is what matters.

Recently, Akashay was seen playing a cop in the remake of Ittefaq, which was made in the year 1969. The film also had Sonakshi Sinha and Siddharth Malhotra. The film got good reviews from the audience.

Android 8.1 To Save More Space Might Lower The Size Of Inactive Apps

Google is still in the course of launching out Oreo Android 8.0 to all consumers of Android. The new version of OS comes with various innovative features. But it seems like one of the most significant features is being kept for Android 8.1.

As per a report by XDA Developers, Google will transport a new function in Android 8.1 that will assist consumers save some memory on their smartphones. Even though saving memory is not a huge issue with flagship handsets since they come with huge inbuilt memory, the problem persists with the budget Android handsets that come with 16 GB or 8 GB memory for built-in storages.

The website discovered the new function in the AOSP (Android Open Source Project) framework lately. It has been cited that the feature activates automatically when it senses that the handset is running low on internal memory. The function, once activated, saves memory by closing down the inactive applications on the smartphone.

The algorithm utilized in finding out which applications are inactive, is that the handset recognizes which apps have not been triggered by the consumer in a while or been active in the background. It has been also cited that the OEMs might have to physically facilitate this function prior to launching out Android 8.1 to its smartphones.

It is worth stating that Android 8.1 might take some period to come to the end consumers since most of the OEMs are still trialing Android 8.0 on the inside with their personal UIs. Even firms such as HMD Global, who give near share Android OS in their Nokia handsets, have just concluded Oreo Android 8.0 beta and have claimed that the OS will be coming to its smartphones shortly. Samsung is one of the companies that will roll out the new version of the OS first to its flagship handset, Galaxy S8 models.

Android 8.1 is presently below Developer Preview phases. The DP1 of the new version of the OS was rolled out previous month. Google, at the time of rolling out DP1 claimed that it plans to begin launching the user version of the OS by end of this year.

Amazon’s Dream Of Starting The Food Retail Venture In India Still Has More Time

Amazon’s online food retail venture may be delayed. It was anticipated to start around in Diwali. Sources said that the company requires to keep it apart from its marketplace. The company connects the marketplace sellers and buyers, but Amazon will have to create a separate platform for food ventures. Food is the only segment where the government has allowed it to sell the products directly to the customers.

 

American firm Amazon is the first such global company, which government has permitted selling food products directly to consumers in the country. The government of India had approved 100% FDI in the food retail sector last year to promote farming. Amazon and other international retailers are not allowed to sell non-food products directly to the consumer in the country. The Indian government has asked Amazon to take apart its stock of direct food retailing from the marketplace. The company also has separate office and accounting system for its new platform. The Amazon India spokespersons refused to say anything about this. They said, “We cannot comment anything about the sanction status of our food retail license.”

Amazon intends to invest $500 Million in India in coming five years. During this time, the company will sell private label and third party food directly to the customers. The company will be sourcing and packaging these products at the local level. According to a source, the company will also have to get approval from the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI).

Entry in this sector by Amazon can get price war between organized brick and mortar retailers and online grocery companies. This is owing to the aggressive strategy of the American company. Amazon is currently offering food products through third-party sellers in some cities of India. The company has tied up with Big Bazaar and HyperCity for this. Amazon launched its first private grocery label last year in the US. The company’s own private label contains products such as coffee and baby food. In the US, the company’s private label products are being sold through prime membership. The prices of these products are significantly lower than other popular brands.

India Mobile Operators Rally On Expectations For More Painless Competition Post Jio Cost Rise

Stakes in wireless operators of India lifted penetratingly this week post Jio telecom unit of Reliance Industries Ltd elevated mobile data tariffs, increasing expectations of a lessening in the aggressive competition that has wrinkled profits in the industry. Top-positioned Bharti Airtel Ltd elevated to a more than 8-year high and Reliance stroked a record on the 1st day of trading since last week declaration of Jio of high-end new data tariffs that efficiently raise costs by almost 20%.

Jio, supported by richest man of India Mukesh Ambani, has up-ended the 2nd-largest mobile services market in the world by consumers with cut-throat marketing and by cutting costs for its 4G data, pushing current players comprising Vodafone and Bharti Airtel’s local unit to level up with the services. Consequently, Bharti Airtel reported a 75% decrement in its profit for April–June while Idea Cellular Ltd posted a 3rd successive quarterly loss. Experts claimed that costs of Jio will stay low, even though they greeted the hikes as a good initial sign of more costing discipline. “Last week declaration of Jio was a great relief for all current players since there is a feeling that the curse of worst costing is behind them,” claimed director of research at William O’Neil & Co, Satish Betadpur, to the media in an interview.

“Reliance is seeking at making certain that Jio is beneficial. My prediction is that from now on, they will aim on quality of network to obtain more users,” he further added. The energy corporation claimed last week that Jio might turn to be profitable soon after the telecom unit reported a loss of Rs 2.71 Billion. Shares of Reliance increased almost by 3.8% this week to post a new all-time high, prior to closing 3.3% higher. Bharti Airtel led profits on the wider NSE index, elevating by almost 5.8% to post its highest level ever since May 2009. Idea Cellular Ltd increased by almost 8.8% to lay a hand on its highest ever since July 25, while Reliance Communications Ltd increased by almost 9.5%.

Well, let us see if this war will worsen or will settle down!

Better Secure ATMs Than Sorry

In June 2014, two 14-year-old computer freaks in Canada pushed the Bank of Montreal to update its safety after they had utilized the ATM’s (automatic teller machine) operating manual to discover roughly all the data required to reprogram the ATM. They merely required its password, which they properly guessed at their initial try by utilizing 000000, an ordinary default setting for most of the ATMs.

The ATM’s only job is to smooth the process of communication between the main server of the bank and the customer. This comprises setting up the identity of banking and the user. All communications between the server and the ATM are protected. As users, we actually do not know of the communication and encryption procedures follow appropriate security measures or not.

Users can be contended in 2 ways. If only the ways of communication and encryption are disclosed that applicable experts can judge the safety of the network. On the other hand, the more suitable alternative is to have the RBI (Reserve Bank of India) set up a cell to certify and study such safety in ATMs. But, to the best of our information, RBI does not contain any such group yet.

Note that all safety proofs of all the techniques of encryption utilize the supposition that the PIN (personal identification number) utilized by the user is artificial-random, that is, a sequence of numbers fulfilling one or more statistical trails for arbitrariness but made by a definite procedure of math.

As per cryptographer-mathematician Claude Shannon, “If the mutual data between the message to be stored or sent really, and the one that is to be stored or sent be zero, the network is claimed to be completely safe.” This indicates that when transformed to binary string, they might act such as an impartial coin being tossed independently repeatedly (“independently” indicating the toss not manipulating whether it will be tails or heads).

But the normal propensity of most of the users is to utilize PINs that we might not forget. So, the PIN turns out to be very much non-arbitrary, representing grave compromise in safety. The PIN is decrypted and encrypted at the time of the transactions.

Diwali 2017 Day 1: Vasubaras

The festivities of Diwali start by worshipping the cows. The first day of the Diwali is devoted by worshipping the cows. The day is also known as Vasu Baras, Govatsa Dwadashi, or Nandini Vrat. According to the Hindu calendar, Vasubaras falls on the month of Ashwin on the 12th day of Krishna Paksha. This year it is on 16th October 2017.

The beginning of the Vasubaras

The origin of the Vasubaras is related to the story of the “Samundar Manthan”. The story goes that when the demons and the Gods were churning the ocean for obtaining the nectar, the cow named Kamadhenu appeared out of the ocean. Kamadhenu was a divine cow that lived in the heaven and it was gifted by the Gods to the seven sages. During the course of time, the possession of the divine cow was given to Sage Vasishta. The specialty about this cow was that it had the ability to grant all the wishes of the owner. Thus the belief that on the day of Vasubaras, by worshipping the cows wishes will be granted by the God.
