Controversies surrounding presidential pick Meira Kumar may come back to haunt her

BJP led the NDA to overcome the opposition by stating that Ram Nath Kovind was their presidential candidate.

He waited for the passing of the ruling party, Congress and another 16 parties announced the name of the former president of Lok Sabha Meira Kumar, making him a dalit dalit in front of the competition.

In addition to the two Dalits, there are other similarities between Ram Nath Kovind and Meira Kumar. One of them is the controversy involving both presidential candidates.

Ram Nath Kovind and Meira Kumar make the laws. While the former was practicing law, he had not.

Kovind erases civil service examinations, but declined the offer, as he was selected in the related services. Meira Kumar was an officer of the Foreign Service of India and worked in several aspects.

Both are also politicians. Meira Kumar also a political career more illustrious than his rival.

Kovind was a Rajya Sabha MP for two periods of Uttar Pradesh tops the BJP Morcha caste. He was also the party’s national spokesman.

Meira Kumar is a member of the five-term Lok Sabha who wins up to, Delhi and Bihar. He was also Minister of Union Cabinet before becoming the representative of the Lok Sabha.

However, the political career of Meira Kumar has been much more controversial than that of Ram Nath Kovind. These controversies came to haunt her.

Former chairman of the Lower House is involved in a serious dispute over the allocation of bungalows in Lutyens Delhi may even end up in trouble at some point.

For allegedly using his influence when he was the speaker, Meira Kumar got a bungalow 6, Krishna Menon Marg converts National Babu Jagjivan Ram Foundation.

She also granted for 25 years until 2038.
Meira Kumar is the daughter of former PM and freedom fighter Babu Jagjivan Ram.

She was the last official occupant until 2002 6, the bungalow Krishna Menon Marg where Jagjivan Ram lived until his death in 1986.

At one point, she had two bungalows in her possession: a 6, Krishna Menon Marg and the other 20, Akbar Road. We were assigned bungalows under their intervention.

However, the conversion of Krishna Menon Marg bungalows into a monument by the previous UPA government and its assignment in the name of the Meira Kumar family for 25 years to a note has been against the Cabinet Council of 2000 date of the Government of NDA to avoid such manipulations.

According to an RTI response, the government slapped on a bill to rent Rs 1.98 crore in Krishna Menon Marg bungalow.

However, Meira Kumar is accused of having waived his dismissal when he was locuteuse.

RTI activist Subhash Chandra Agrawal, who had sought government details, told India Today that the administration’s succession response after a CIC verdict confirmed that the rent bill of Rs 1.98 crore Has been canceled without any registered application.

He said: “The central government must generate the rent bill to recover because the bungalow (6, Krishna Menon Marg) is necessarily kept and illegally occupied as an unofficial monument since the end of Babu Jagjivan Ram after the death of his widow Indrani Devi … the government must also cancel the conversion of the cabin as a monument. ”

He stated that the bungalow became openly “unofficial monument” by successive central governments that have deliberately kept bungalows “abandoned” to allow such “illegal activity invasion and intrusion.”

“The bungalow was used to organize prayer meetings on the birthday and death Jagjivan Ram without permission from the government, but with the presence of senior officials,” he said.

He defended the Center to reject applications from former Union Minister Ajit Singh to convert the bungalow 12 Tuglaq Road into a memorial on behalf of his father and former prime minister Choudhary Charan Singh.

SpaceX is about to do something huge

No one has accused SpaceX founder Elon Musk of thinking small, but these plans represent an important step forward for the mangeage.

SpaceX has done incredible things in its short industry including, but not limited to, goods delivery contracts with NASA points to Earth a colony on Mars, and successful tests to land a first stage of the rocket after its launch In a development that could revolutionize space travel. However, a new ambitious plan to create a network of satellites that provide high-speed Internet access for the world shows that it still has very great musk ideas.

The company expects to launch a bunch of satellites that would be in a range three times as far away as the International Space Station. The company has filed an application with the CEO describing a plan to orbit more than 4000 satellites or four times the number of active satellites around Earth at this time.

The goal of SpaceX would be to launch satellites in 2019 and gradually increase the number of launches until they are in space by 2024. SpaceX plans to do so through the reusable Falcon 9 rocket. If the move is successful, the only satellite Internet service would be profitable enough to fund a mission to Mars.

EXPERIMENTAL APPROACH

Designer duo Anjana Bhargav and Ankita Bhargav made their first men’s line with the men’s week. Their range gives the classic Aligarhi kurta a modern avatar. The focus is on kurta shirts that redefine casual luxe. The collection is experimental and creates a look for the modern man that is new age yet extremely wearable. The fabrics are soft cotton knits mixed with silks, woven jacquards and bamboo jerseys.

Deliberately upturning notions of male sensuality and taking it to a new platform even by his own standards- do remember that designer Rohit Bal has put sindoor on his men in the past-the show aptly titled Badmaash was all about playing up passionate men’s sexiness punctuated with a dollop of provocativeness. The show began with a host of bare-chested male models reclining suggestively on the ornate couches set up as props on the runway. Amid loud cheers, the opening sequence saw the boys flexing their gym-toned bodies languidly, showing off the perfect six packs and oozing raw masculinity.

As can be expected from the showman, his collection was a delicate and tasteful fusion of western and Indian silhouettes. There

Low business

There were tall claims that domestic buyers would be around in plenty at India’s first Men’s Fashion Week here, but were they all in hiding? Even those who were present at the three-day event preferred not to place orders. Apart from domestic buyers, there were a few international buyers as well and according to them, Indian designers have a long way to go

q\j makp. if intp.mfltinnallu wear. “As a market,

perhaps the Indian designer-wear sector isn’t at a stage where it can churn out a high street label similar to the ones available internationally, but it’s just a matter of time and right investments,” said Doris Pietrek, a buyer from US- based store Anthropologe.

Another buyer, David Schneider from the Portuguese store Living Fashion, said he was here just to get a feel of the Indian men’s wear

was an excessive usage of passion colours such as rust, red, plum and flaming orange.

The liberal usage of gold patterns and baroque, the ensemble is from Siddhartha Tytler’s Spring Summer 10 collection, titled Love Look of the

collections and due to recession he would have to keep a check on what he was buying. Designers say they are not disappointed with the business scene – most of them echoed they expected no business – and that it was their duty to participate in India’s first Men’s Fashion Week. Mumbai-based celebrity designer Rocky S chose not to showcase in the stalls

e many takers. “I wasn’t expecting business at all. Hence I chose not to exhibit my collection in the stalls. I was here to support this wonderful initiative,” Rocky said. Though the stalls are spacious, the designers have just displayed their clothes on hangers and very few of them have used mannequins. Though VHIMW is a business-to-business event, most of the designers were not to be found at their stalls.

Day like prints accentuated the party feel of the outfits. The western-style pants were well cut in linear streamlined finish. There were also full-legged loose trousers in draped fall gathered at the ankles. The ornate sherwanis and bandhgalas were embellished with delicate gold work and lotus and peacock motifs in Swarovski. The jackets and waistcoats were structured and sharply tailored. The collection was all about displaying an edgy, naughty side of male dressing and the mood on the runway was created to highlight the unrestrained indulgence to sensuality.

FIRST MEN FASHION WEEK BLEND OF THRILL AND IDEAS

the first ever Van Heusen India Men’s Week (VHIMW) in the country that was held in New Delhi, couturiers are tracking international trends and making designs just for men. The Men’s Fashion Week provided a platform for designers to showcase their work and encourage further development of their labels in the Indian market.

It’s a milestone for the Indian fashion industry and a much- awaited opportunity for the designers to tap into a wider market and make people aware of designer menswear and make products accessible and available to them.

Designers feel that the concept of a fashion week for men is very new even to the world and India should be happy to have become the fourth country to hold an all-male fashion week after London, New York and Paris. India is a huge market with men’s wear sharing a major portion and Indian men are ready to experiment today.

The changing lifestyle of the Indian male is also a ready reckoner to reflect how much they have evolved in terms of style and grooming. That is the reason Indian men, who till now thought that a shirt is a shirt, are ready for the boutique- ish, designer wear kind of stuff. Earlier men didn’t have the time to invest in fashion. The ‘new man’ is willing to spend money on himself to look smarter and feel good.

The fact that the attitude of the male gender towards fashion has changed over the years was an encouraging factor for designers who came up with their men’s wear collection at The Men’s Week. The fashion fraternity feels that VHIMW will become a benchmark for fashion biz and will hopefully lead to more people joining in for the next year’s extravaganza.

According to designer Rocky S, “Right now, men’s wear has about 30-40 per cent of the market. But this market is rapidly growing thanks to the growing consciousness among men to constantly upgrade their wardrobes. Men’s fashion is going to get really big in the coming years and we have started off in the right direction.”

FDCI’s Sunil Sethi adds, “Men are also now more conscious about their looks – they go to the gym, they take

care of themselves, and the fact that the retail industry wanted us to go ahead with a dedicated men’s fashion week, shows that there’s a clear demand.” Men’s apparel is five times bigger than the women’s apparel segment. In India, women’s wear took off in a big way because women began climbing the corporate ladder and discovered western wear and corporate dressing.

POSSIBILITIES OF
GROWTH

“I see that the industry has moved a long way and there has been a lot of growth in the men’s fashion scenario,” said designer Ravi Bajaj who participated in his first ever fashion week with his collection Dandy March, shifted from the trademark classic look to something more indulgent. His range included Jamavar trousers, velvet shirts, surface ornamentation, cashmere bandhgalas, and paisley-print pants. Also, the textures were smooth and the silhouettes were sharp, well tailored and emphasis has been laid on the fit. Rajvi Mohan’s collection portrayed a man who’s on a holiday, does not give a damn and just wants to relax. “Being a woman designing for men is the best job in the world,” said Rajvi. On the other hand, Himmat Singh translated the royal world of Rajasthan with his Prince collection as models sashayed wearing ‘bandhgalas’ and ‘sherwanis’ with ethnic pagdis and swords for company.

Already famous in the fashion circuit, Nitin Bal Chauhan believes that men have become more fashion conscious. “These days, men want to dress up and be at par with their women when it comes to fashion. They are very specific. Not only the professionals you can see college­going youngsters too.

“They all want to wear the latest trends and experiment with their looks and style. I feel that having a

fashion week solely for men is the first right step to tap this booming market. My designs are mainly inspired by gothic architecture, rock and roll and nature. My collection is all about sleek pants with funky t-shirts that are extremely affordable. Besides clothes I have also designed a range of bags” said Nitin. Since his designs were inspired by the youth, we saw college-going teenagers walking down the ramp instead of male models.

Known for his individuality and original concepts, designer Zubair Kirmani felt that the Men’s Fashion Week should have happened a couple of years ago but now is not a bad time either. In fact, it has been only 10 years since fashion industry has become such a big business in India and men’s fashion has become more global since the past five years. So I feel we are behind by five years but overall it’s a great time for men’s fashion.

Former supermodel-turned-actor Muzammil Ibrahim said that as a budding model, he had wished that India had a dedicated fashion event for men. He was glad that new male models now have a platform in the VHIMW. “This platform will work wonders for male models. When I was just a model I really wanted something like this to come up but at that time, we didn’t have any such chance. So I am sure that now things will be much better for models who are just starting their careers as they will have many more opportunities,” said Muzammil.

MAKE YOUII HAIR SOFT AND LUSTROUS How to make your crowning glory can object of envy. By Suman ‘Vats’

How to make your crowning glory can object of envy.

hen it comes to appearance there is no denying the fact that hair plays an essential part of a woman’s beauty. Proper hair care will lead to healthier and better looking hair. Bad hair care or not taking care of your hair can lead to breakage, fly away, split ends, dull hair, and early hair loss.

Silky, manageable hair is what all of us dream of and only a few possess. But all it takes is a little bit of regular care to keep your hair soft, lustrous and beautiful. For that you have to maintain a daily hair care routine.

The most important thing is to have a healthy lifestyle. Get enough sleep, learn to relax, and practise a combination of yoga and pilates as a part of your fitness regime. Drink
10-12 glasses of water, and eat a balanced low-oil diet. Include lots of fresh fruits, fruit juices, nuts and dry fruits, and green leafy vegetables in your daily diet. Eat raw oats since it is a rich source of silica which is vital for hair growth. Vitamins B and C are also essential for hair growth. Avoid junk foods as much as possible.

MASSAGE AND
BRUSHING

Massage your scalp every day. This will improve the blood circulation at the roots and keeps the hair healthy. Use your fingertips and not your nails, for the scalp massage. Get a hair massage once or twice a week since it stimulates and improves blood circulation in the scalp, which enhances hair growth. Avoid exposure to sunlight. Use an umbrella or a cap or a scarf or a hat –

anything that will prevent exposure to direct sunlight.

Brush you hair with a round-tipped brush, twice a day. the ideal way of brushing is start at the nape of the neck and move upwards towards the crown, repeat this stroke at least three times, and then brush your hair the normal way. This improves blood circulation in the scalp. Comb your hair with a wide-toothed comb. This helps to control hair breakage.

After washing your hair, comb your hair when it is still wet. Gently untangle the tangled ends. This also helps to control hair breakage.

Cleansing your hair is important on a regular basis. Before having your hair washed, make sure you remove all the tangles first. Styling and drying will be a lot easier this way. When drying your hair, do not rub with a towel. Just blot the moisture out of the hair. This is because a towel rubbing would lead to tangles and probable breakages, not to mention the hassles you will go through in disentangling.

When doing a hair wash, you would first notice that there is not so much lather. But not to worry, it is just because there is still dirt present in the hair. So better rinse the hair but don’t squeeze it or even pull the hair for this might cause hair problems too. It is better just too smoothly run your hands down just to remove excess water and shampoo, then wash the hair again.

SHAMPOOING AND
CONDITIONING

Buy shampoos and conditioners that match your hair type. When shampooing, rinse your hair out before applying any shampoo to remove any dust, dirt and any other foreign items, then apply the shampoo onto your scalp and massage it gently with your finger tips and work your way outwards. Thoroughly rinse your hair out to remove any shampoo residue that may be left. Shampoo residue may dry your hair and/or attract dirt. You should wash your hair as often as you feel necessary to keep it clean, but a general rule is you should wash oily hair every day or every other day and only wash dry hair two-three times a week.

If you have dry hair, you need a gentle natural shampoo, enriched with green tea extracts that makes the hair strong and shiny. You need to use a deep conditioner for dry hair.

If you have oily hair, you need to wash it regularly to get rid of the excess oil. This is done best by a shampoo that has extracts of rosemary and pansy as its ingredients.

If you have normal hair, use a shampoo that is mild, and condition your hair at regular intervals.

Use a conditioner after shampooing, it’ll moisturise your hair, give it extra protection, add shine, reduce static, and make it easier to untangle. Use a leave-in conditioner, it’ll hydrate and protect your hair. A leave-in conditioner on your hair is the equivalent of moisturiser on your face. When conditioning your hair, try to spread the conditioner evenly throughout your hair and leave it in for a couple of minutes before rinsing out your hair.

Be gentle when shampooing and conditioning, don’t use excessive force rubbing your hair. Remember hair is most vulnerable when wet.

 

IF YOU HAVE OILY HAIR, YOU NEED TO WASH IT REGULARLY TO GET RID OF THE EXCESS OIL. THIS IS DONE BEST BY A SHAMPOO THAT HAS EXTRACTS OF ROSEMARY AND PANSY AS ITS INGREDIENTS.

Tips

  • Before entering a swimmingpool, wet your hair so that it will soak up the pre-dip water instead of the chlorinated water.
  • Hot air can be damaging to your hair, so when using a hair­dryer use the pool’s cool setting.
  • Don’t keep the blow-dryer in one spot for more than a few seconds, keep it moving and at a good distance from your hair.
  • To speed up the drying process, pat your hair dry with a towel and let the remaining moisture in your hair dry naturally.
I Use a brush whose bristles are made from natural animal hairs. It is softer and more flexible which means less damage will be done to your hair.
  • Use brushes/combs with widely-spaced bristles/teeth and smooth tips. Sharp tooth combs can damage your hair, cause split ends, and scratch your scalp.
  • Follow a hair trimming procedure on a regular basis to get rid of the spilt ends and ensure a healthy hair growth.
  • Apply hair packs once in 15 days and alternate it with hot oil therapy.
  • Wear a hairstyle that complements your dressing and personality.

 

Let See How Geeta Drive her Audi

Audi is mine,” Geeti turned around and tried to glare at the voice. But she just couldn’t glare! She could just stare because the man was really a good- looker to her eyes.

“And, pray, if you are driving that contraption, why haven’t you learnt to park it properly?” asked the man.

Geeti fumed and she was thinking of what to retort when the salesman said, “I am sure madam will remove the car so that you can drive away.”

“You stop it. I will not move from here till you give me this Playstation. I will only go when you pack it up for me,” yelled Geeti.

“I am sorry, madam. But he has taken it,” stammered the salesman.

“And who is the ‘he’?” demanded Geeti.

“This gentleman behind you,” said the salesman.

“What!” exclaimed Geeti and found herself being unheard as he shouted, “What!” too in a louder deep resonant voice. “Is this lady trying to take the Playstation I had told you to keep for me?”

“Sir, we have kept it for you,” stuttered the salesman.

“No. I will take it. And please hurry up. I have got an appointment and I have to take it with me,” said Geeti, nervously looking at her watch.

“I am taking it and you just get your horrible beetle away,” shoutea the man.

“You dare to call my Audi a beetle?” Geeti nearly choked.

“How can you buy a red Audi? Red! Of all the colours! Red! Can any sane person ever choose such a colour?” he asked                          w

scathingly.

“How dare you! Oh, blast the Playstation. I will not stand here and be insulted by imbeciles.

Keep your precious Playstation,” shouted Geeti as she flounced out of the shop.

Geeti was in a rage as she reversed her car and nosed her way through the traffic. She was more annoyed when she remembered that he had called her expensive car a beetle. What audacity! But he sure looked great, she thought as she visualised his lean but strong body. She hated muscular bodies. And the face! Not really handsome in a chocolate way, but with so much character. Oh, if only those dark eyes had looked at her with flaming passion or caressing tenderness, rather than the indifferent anger that they had shown which had really cut her down to size.

S

uddenly, she felt a depression settling in the precincts of her heart. She didn’t understand it at first but then she became aware that she may never see that man again. He had driven out his car after she had removed her Audi and she had prayed that he would come after her. She had hung on to the hope that maybe he was her Paplu of the Gizmos. But alas! His car had nosed away from her and she suddenly felt devastated and forlorn as if she had missed something precious in life.

With a loss of nearly all her eagerness, she made her way to the Sunflower and sat at the table that they had decided would be their meeting place.

With dejection she realised that she was late and her Paplu of the Gizmos was not there yet. She nearly decided to go back home when suddenly she heard rushing steps and a package was thrust in her hands.

And then the voice she had so wanted to hear,

 

Suddenly,

said, “Sorry I could not get this gift-packed.

It was just because I got delayed because of a moron in a beetle of a car. Ooooh! Yoooouuuuu!”

She looked back and repeated,

“Ooooooh! Yooooouuuuu!”

He sat down and they just looked at each other.

He said suddenly, “I was praying it would be you.”

“So was I,” she admitted.

“Will you marry me?” he asked suddenly.

“But why?” she asked archly.

He replied unsteadily, “Because it will be economical. Instead of the two of us buying gizmos separately, we can buy one for the two or us. In our new house. Both of us together. Just the two of us. We both already know each other so well. Through our chatting, I mean. Very economical. You will save all your money because I promise I will buy all the latest gizmos for you. Will ou please marry me? You see, you are beautiful, oth your mind and your face. I can’t resist both. I will be blessed if you spend a lifetime with me.”

“Ditto,” she breathed.

“What a funny way to accept a marriage proposal,” he gasped.

And they both laughed happily with sheer ecstasy, as their hands caressed and communicated their joy in having found that each other’s appearance and personality synchronised with the mind and feelings that they had read and felt a rapport with, while chatting on the Internet.

She couldn’t resist asking, “But why were you so angry when you saw me first?”

He replied honestly, “Because the thought had crossed my mind – and had made me feel miserable – that you would not be the one I was meeting at the Sunflower and I was very sure that I didn’t want to meet anyone but you. I had planned to tell my Joker that I had found someone else but I am lucky that the Paplu had to meet the Joker.”

“But you had not followed my car,” she asked plaintively.

“That was because I had to go to my house and get my wallet for the credit card to buy the Playstation. Today I came to know that dreams do come true! But please, what is your name? I still don’t know. I am the CEO of a multinational company. Anil Kumar at your service, madam.”

She replied, “And I am Gitanjali Rai at your service, for a lifetime!”        22

Loneliness sat solitary under the tree Empathising with a forsaken fallen leaf but suddenly a brand new sapling sprang out to make its own destiny and sheer joy replaced the pain of the debilitating vacuum of loss and found sustenance of hope and faith just by lifting a dying ember and seeing the beam beneath.

Birth blurs the sharp pain oi^death Light spurs us through darkness Heat warms the freezirrg^cold Youth shoulders the weakness of the old Cool shade protects from the tawny sunlight and dawn clears out the smudges of the night So, new life, lifting the veil of deathliness beckons to an enduring happiness…

on this matter and try to solve your problem. If you do not succeed then talk to your doctor.

I am 40 years old. One of my sisters who is elder to me has been diagnosed to be suffering from carcinoma of the breast. I am equally worried. What should I do?

Your worry is very justified. In women with a family history of breast cancer, there are higher chances of getting the disease. I suggest you go for a mammogram for detection of any abnormality in your breasts. In fact this test should serve as a baseline guide for further tests when required. Do not get panicky.

I am 40 years old and the mother of two boys. My husband, who is 45 years old, is quite healthy, we were enjoying normal sex relations but of late I have developed an aversion to sex. I do not know why. Please help.

Your is quite a normal thing. Many women as they age start losing interest in sex. This is directly related to the hormones in their body which start declining as age advances. Many times there is some hidden fears in the minds of women which make them dislike the sex act. This is to a large extent governed by the environment, social behaviour and society in which we live. I think you should talk freely with your husband

I am 35 years old and the mother of two daughters. I do breast self-exami­nation almost weekly. Please let me know what I should be looking for.

You should be doing both inspection and palpation of both your breasts. Look for any lump of any kinds, changes in the contour of the breast (swelling, dimpling or puckering), discharge from the nipple (bloody) and lastly, sudden inversion of the nipple. If you find any of the said problems, consult your doctor immediately.

I am 25 years old. My problem is that my breasts are small. Please tell me any way in which I can increase their size without the help of surgery.

Breasts in any woman are under hormonal control. Their size is governed by heredity, nutrition and changes in hormonal levels especially during pregnancy. Breasts may enlarge to double their size during pregnancy and breast feeding. Since there is no muscle at all inside the breasts no exercise can enlarge them. Firming and toning up of the chest muscles can give the breasts a good platform. Push-ups and dumbbell exercises are advised to develop these muscles only. Creams as advertised merely swell the skin. Some devices use suction to enhance the breasts size. But these are gimmicks. These effects are temporary. So better do firming-up exercises etc. Surgery is the only alternative if you really want to have big boobs.

I am 35 years old and the mother of a teenaged daughter. I am very worried since two close members of my family have died of heart attacks. Please help.

Yours is a problem which is being increasingly felt these days. Environ­ment and life style do increase or decrease the risk of certain illness. There are always ways in which you
can protect yourself even if you are in a high-risk category because of various factors including heredity. A family history of heart disease is a strong indicator of risk. Consult your doctor who should be able to guide you in this matter.

I am 20 years old. My problem is that I have a lot of hair on my upper lip and face. This is really causing me lot of embarrassment. Please help me.

You are suffering from a condition called ‘hirsutism’. It indicates hormonal imbalance. Sometimes, a growth in one of the glands (adrenals, ovaries) may be responsible. You should consult your doctor who, on examining you and investigating, will be able to reach the exact diagnosis. Do not ignore it. In the meantime, you can temporarily bleach the hair.

I am 38 years old and obese. My husband who is 35 is also very fat. We have two children (10 and seven years old). We are worried whether they will also become obese. Please help.

There is no doubt that obesity runs in families. Some consider it due to heredity. But there are other factors as well like diet patterns in the family, hormonal imbalance, lack of physical activity, intake of junk food and a lack of taking part in exercise and physical activities. Best would be for both of you to set an example for your children by adopting healthy food habits and leading an active physical life.

I am 35 years old. My problem is intractable genital itching. I have tried many treatments but got no help. Please advise.

First keep your part clean. If there are hairs (either trim or shave them) look for any genital discharge. It is something which is often ignored. Candida/trichomonas infection is an important cause of genital itching. These should be treated meticul­ously. Also exclude diabetes.

Gadget Freaks How Paplu met Joker. By Rungeen Singh

, Geeti. Many friends that you make through chatting on the Internet, may really be rogues and they may harm you later,” said Mili. Geeti yelled, “Mili, will you stop it! You are such a wet blanket that I don’t know why I have made you my friend. For once, I am enjoying excitement because someone wants to meet me. He feels like a soul mate, yaar, and here you are giving lectures. It is like I have met my dream boyfriend. But he is such an ass that he hasn’t sent me his picture. So I don’t know what he looks like. He must be a handsome hulk, I bet.”

“Do you really think that a man who chats under the atrocious name of Paplu of the Gizmos will be a smart man?” asked Mili caustically.

“You bet. But can anyone know that a beauty like me goes under the name The Joker Geek? I bet he will be a dream boat and very handsome and smart too,” sighed Geeti whimsically.

“I hope you haven’t sent your photograph,” Mili wondered with concern.

“No, I have not, guardian angel. When will you stop patronising and monitoring me like an interfering warden?” asked Geeti balefully.

“Till someone comes to keep you in check,” said Mili.

“Uuh! No one but the very exceptional can keep me in check. Banish any other thought, lady!” scoffed Geeti as she got out her best dress and started getting ready.

“Where are you meeting him?” asked Mili.

“At the Sunflower,” replied Geeti.

“What time have you given him?” asked Mili.

“Eight,” answered Geeti shortly.

“Then why are you going so early?” asked Mili.

Geeti explained, “I have to check up on the latest Playstation he told me about. He says it is magic. I bet he is magic. I want to see his face when I gift it to him and now stop haranguing me. I am going. Bye.”

“Do your parents know?” asked the undeterred Mili.

“No! And you keep your trap shut. If you dare tell
them, you will be dead meat,” warned Geeti as she rushed out to her own car. She drove down to the best shop for the latest gizmos.

“I want the Playstation,” commanded Geeti as soon as she reached the counter of the shop she loved to frequent and she gave them the details that she had got from the Internet, from her Paplu of the Gizmos.

The salesman recognised her as she came very regularly to buy the latest inventions in gadgetry. They showed her the latest one and she loved tne Playstation and said, “Please pack it. I will pay by credit card.”

“Do you really think that a man who chats under the atrocious name of Paplu of the Gizmos will be a smart man?” asked Mili caustically.

“You bet. But can anyone know that a beauty like me goes under the name The Joker Geek? I bet he will be a dream boat and very handsome and smart too,” sighed Geeti whimsically.

“I hope you haven’t sent your photograph,” Mili wondered with concern.

“No, I have not, guardian angel. When will you stop patronising and monitoring me like an interfering warden?” asked Geeti balefully.

“Till someone comes to keep you in check,” said Mili.

“Uuh! No one but the very exceptional can keep me in check. Banish any other thought, lady!” scoffed Geeti as she got out her best dress and started getting ready.

“Where are you meeting him?” asked Mili.

“At the Sunflower,” replied Geeti.

“What time have you given him?” asked Mili.

“Eight,” answered Geeti shortly.

“Then why are you going so early?” asked Mili.

Geeti explained, “I have to check up on the latest Playstation he told me about. He says it is magic. I bet he is magic. I want to see his face when I gift it to him and now stop haranguing me. I am going. Bye.”

“Do your parents know?” asked the undeterred Mili.

“No! And you keep your trap shut. If you dare tell
them, you will be dead meat,” warned Geeti as she rushed out to her own car. She drove down to the best shop for the latest gizmos.

“I want the Playstation,” commanded Geeti as soon as she reached the counter of the shop she loved to frequent and she gave them the details that she had got from the Internet, from her Paplu of the Gizmos.

The salesman recognised her as she came very regularly to buy the latest inventions in gadgetry. They showed her the latest one and she loved tne Playstation and said, “Please pack it. I will pay by credit card.”

Depression expected to become Tropical Storm Nate, heading toward Nicaragua, Honduras

A tropical depression that breathes in the South Caribbean could become tropical storm Nate on the way to reach the Gulf Coast, and perhaps Florida as a hurricane over the weekend. In his 11 hours. Wednesday’s opinion, forecasters at the National Hurricane Center said the storm was moving over warm water and that she faced a light wind shear that could allow rapid intensification. Its sustained winds could reach about 85 mph in three days, becoming a Category 1 storm as it approaches the Gulf Coast on Saturday.

Forecasters on Wednesday increased their forecast intensity early in the day, but said there was still a possibility that the storm could weaken as it passes through Central America and the Yucatan. “Residents along the Gulf Coast from Louisiana to Florida should monitor the progress of this system for the coming days and comply with the advice of local authorities,” Hurricane Nacional said in its latest ruling.

At 11 o’clock, the depression is located 70 miles west of San Andres Island off the coast of Nicaragua, where it could dump up to 20 inches of rain and trigger landslides and dangerous flooding lands, forecasters announced of the National Hurricane Center. Sustained winds reached 35 mph. It is expected that the storm is moving northeastern Nicaragua on Thursday and eastern Honduras Thursday and Friday, causing heavy rains across much of the Central American coast.

Forecasts said it was too early to say where the storm will hit the Gulf Coast. The storm is headed by a high-pressure ridge over the southwestern Atlantic, but a low-pressure tank across the Florida Straits could force it to move faster north-northwest through Friday and into the Gulf of Mexico on Saturday. The amount of land that it crosses could also weaken it, complicating the forecast of the track. Reliable American and European models differed according to the future trajectory of the storm up to 90 miles, according to forecasters.

Monitoring forecasts so far may also have wide margins of error. So far this year, tracking forecasts four to five days ahead have averaged errors of about 170 to 230 miles. While the weather and magnitude of the storm remain uncertain, the Florida peninsula and Gulf coast west of Louisiana should remain vigilant in the coming days, according to forecasts. The storm is expected to produce strong winds, a storm and heavy rains.

Another tropical depression, on day 16 in a recent hurricane season, has formed in the southern Caribbean on Wednesday morning and could be a weak Category 1 hurricane when it hits the US coast. Tropical storm warnings were issued for parts of Nicaragua and Honduras, where heavy rainfall is expected. Costa Rica and Panama could have five to 10 inches of rain, with up to 20 inches possible in some places. Last Wednesday, a hurricane watch was issued for parts of Mexico.

The sunny south Florida weather cover is not related to the storm, but to part of another system in western Cuba and the Florida Strait. A strong contraction of the wind should keep this system disorganized, which should generate heavy rains and bursts in Florida and the Bahamas. Wednesday’s depression becomes Cyclone 16 in a recent season that affected febrile intensity over the past two months with five named storms since Aug. 30. Three deadly storms – Harvey, Irma and Mary – were formed in less than 30 days.

In September, the highest amount of recorded hurricane energy occurred, with the highest number of days with a major hurricane, according to Colorado State University meteorologist Phil Klotzbach. Earlier in the season, analysts raised their prediction for the number of storms between the ages of 14 and 19, with two to five major hurricanes. The season ends on November 30th. A tropical depression formed on October 4, 2017 off the coast of Nicaragua. The system, which is expected to be strengthened in tropical storm Nate, is expected to be based in the Gulf of Mexico.
