Journalist Shot At While Driving In Delhi, Attackers Threw Eggs On Car

New Delhi:

A journalist was shot at by a group of masked men while she was in her car at east Delhi’s Vasundhara Enclave, the police said today. Mitali Chandola, who lives in Noida, was driving her Hyundai i20 car around 12:30 am on Sunday when a Maruti Swift suddenly overtook her, the police said.

Some masked men inside the car fired two shots at her, the police said, adding the bullets pierced through the front windshield and one of them hit her hand. Ms Chandola told the police the attackers also threw eggs on her car’s windshield before accelerating away.

She has been admitted to Dharamshila Hospital in east Delhi and is out of danger.

The police said they are investigating whether any gang that targets motorists at night with eggs to distract and rob them were involved in the attack.

The police have also not ruled out personal enmity. Ms Chandola said she was not in good terms with her family, according to the police.

“She has received bullet injuries in her arm. She is out of danger. Prima facie it appears to be case of family dispute,” senior police officer Jasmeet Singh told reporters.

The police have launched a hunt for the accused.

In 2008, a 26-year-old journalist, Soumya Viswanathan, was shot dead in south Delhi’s Vasant Kunj while she was driving around 3:30 am.

Kabir Singh Movie Review: Shahid Kapoor, Kiara Advani’s Film Is Beyond Redemption

Cast: Shahid Kapoor, Kiara Advani, Arjan Bajwa, Suresh Oberoi, Kamini Kaushal, Adil Hussain, Nikita Dutta, Soham Majum
Director: Sandeep Reddy Vanga

Rating: 1.5 Stars (out of 5)

Shahid Kapoor steps into Vijay Devarakonda’s shoes in Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s Kabir Singh, a remake of the director’s own 2017 Telugu smash hit Arjun Reddy. The Bollywood actor, and the rest of the cast, represent the only alterations effected in this totally redundant reiteration of the tale of a young orthopaedic surgeon who goes on a self-destructive rampage when the medical college junior he loves is prevented from marrying him.

Every shot, every scene, every camera angle and every line from Arjun Reddy is replicated in Kabir Singh, leaving one wondering why the director felt the need to mount a separate Hindi version in the first place when all that he has done is give us the same film all over again with merely the language and setting changed for the benefit of a pan-Indian audience. He could have well dubbed Arjun Reddy and re-released it nationwide.

In any case, Kabir Singh is a hugely problematic film. The bloated, overlong love story seeks to lend a veneer of normality to acts of dreadful delinquency and sickening misogyny by painting an empathetic portrait of a wayward doctor who lets heartbreak get the better of him, in the process endangering the life of a patient every time he picks up a scalpel to perform a surgery. The film’s protagonist, already dealing with serious anger management issues, goes completely over the edge and turns into a womanizer, an alcoholic and a drug addict when the Sikh girl (Kiara Advani) he thinks he owns marries another man under pressure from her orthodox family.

As all hell breaks loose and his life and career spiral out of control, the audience is expected to summon sympathy for a painfully self-absorbed character who cannot see beyond his own nose. His insolence and sense of entitlement know no bounds. It is one thing to be a flawed hero wronged by circumstances but quite another to be an insufferable lout born with the belief that a woman cannot but play along when a man makes up his mind on matters of the heart.

One key scene from Arjun Reddy is inexplicably done away with in Kabir Singh. It robs the protagonist of the only moment in the three-hour drama where he makes the right noises, however faux. He takes umbrage at sexist remarks about air hostesses that a bloke who has just jetted in from London makes. The hero is livid and gives the guy a piece of his mind. This sequence is obviously meant to underscore that our man is not all bad. He has the right ideas until he is unsettled by rejection. Kabir Singh provides no such glimpse into his mind.

Kabir feels that muscle-flexing and loathsome behaviour are his birthright when he is thwarted. The girl, on the other hand, is a mute spectator as the college topper with “an impeccable academic record” struts around the campus telling everyone within earshot that ‘she’ is ‘his’ girl (“meri bandi hai,” he says repeatedly). Seriously, does anyone talk like that in this day and age and hope not to be ticked off? Preeti Sikka, the girl in question, is marginally better than a doormat: she does Kabir’s bidding like a wound-up doll with no agency of her own and the guy does not have the sense to see that he is doing her absolutely no good.

In an early sequence, the medical college dean (Adil Hussain in a cameo that does no justice to the seasoned actor) hauls Kabir up for a sports field brawl. The latter, his insouciance instact, insists that football is a violent sport and he is well within his rights to arm twist the referee for flashing a red card at him and to bash up a rival who gets in his way. “Frankly, sir, I do not care,” he thunders. That is meant to be a show of masculine pride. He seems to be saying that I am what I am, take it or lump it. When a film for the masses not just condones, but also appears to celebrate, such awful demeanour, one can only worry about the message that is going out.

The errant final year student is handed a month’s suspension, but he decides to leave the college only to change his mind at the sight of the pretty newcomer who catches his fancy. No words are exchanged. The man jumps to a conclusion. The girl surrenders to him without a whimper. While she is allowed no room to have a say, no transgression is too low for the hero. He rides roughshod over everything that he perceives as a threat and then plays victim when the tables are turned on him.

Kabir sinks into a blue funk, has a combination of alcohol and morphine and passes out for two days. His elder brother Karan (Arjun Bajwa), who is in the middle of his own wedding, and his best pal Shiva (Soham Majumdar) fret and fume over the hero’s aggravated state but to no avail. After he returns to his senses but continues to drink heavily and snort cocaine day and night, he turns his attention to a movie actress Jia Sharma (Nikita Dutta) who comes to his hospital with a sprained ankle. Kabir treats her without a modicum of respect. Again, like Preeti, Jia falls into his trap. Look, no point cribbing, Kabir Singh is a man who is difficult to resist, so he can get away with murder!

This is absolutely the same film as Arjun Reddy and has nothing new to offer except for the fact that the Mangalore/Hyderabad setting of the original makes way for Delhi and Mumbai, with neither of the two places showing up on the screen in any significant manner as action-0defining cityscapes. Kabir Singh has obviously inherited all the ills of the earlier film. Emancipation for the heroine here means her jumping into bed with the hero at every available opportunity and then preening over the number of times that the two have had pre-marital sex. This approach to gender assertion comes from a caveman philosophy that one thought India’s filmmakers have put behind them for good. But no, Kabir Singh and its makers are too firmly stuck in the past to notice that the world has moved on.

Shahid Kapoor stretches himself very thin indeed in trying to convince us that Kabir Singh is a present-day incarnation of Devdas that we should shed tears for. But the man he portrays does not suffer quite as irreversibly as the classic tragic hero did. But he raves and rants through his ordeal and would have us believe that he is more sinned against than sinning. Sorry, we aren’t buying that.

Kiara Advani is trapped in a role that requires her to be no more than a sounding board designed for periodic ego massages for the male protagonist. Veteran actress Kamini Kaushal, playing the hero’s sagacious, sensitive granny, endeavours to inject some warmth into the story. Unfortunately, Kabir Singh is beyond redemption. Strictly for Shahid Kapoor fans.

120 minutes a week in nature is the key to good health: Study

We all know that spending time with nature far from the city is good for our health and rejuvenates us. Science now backs up. Spending at least two hours a week in nature may be a crucial threshold for promoting health and well being, according to a new large-scale study.

About the study

This research was carried on by the University of Exeter and published in Scientific Reports and funded by NIHR.

What did it find?

The study revealed that people who spend at least 120 minutes in nature a week are significantly more likely to report good health and higher psychological wellbeing than those who don’t visit nature at all during an average week. However, no such benefits were found for people who visited natural settings such as town parks, woodlands, country parks and beaches for less than 120 minutes a week.

How was the study conducted?

The study used data from nearly 20,000 people in England and found that it didn’t matter whether the 120 minutes was achieved in a single visit or over several shorter visits. It also found the 120-minute threshold applied to both men and women, to older and younger adults, across different occupational and ethnic groups, among those living in both rich and poor areas, and even among people with long term illnesses or disabilities.

Dr Mat White, of the University of Exeter Medical School, who led the study, said: “It’s well known that getting outdoors in nature can be good for people’s health and wellbeing but until now we’ve not been able to say how much is enough. The majority of nature visits in this research took place within just two miles of home so even visiting local urban green spaces seems to be a good thing. Two hours a week is hopefully a realistic target for many people, especially given that it can be spread over an entire week to get the benefit.”

So, it is largely the air pollution that affects the human physiological systems.

In fact, merely living in a greener neighborhood can also be good for health, for instance by reducing air pollution. The data for the current research came from Natural England’s Monitor of Engagement with the Natural Environment Survey, the world’s largest study collecting data on people’s weekly contact with the natural world.

Co-author of the research, Professor Terry Hartig of Uppsala University in Sweden said: “There are many reasons why spending time in nature may be good for health and well being, including getting perspective on life circumstances, reducing stress, and enjoying quality time with friends and family. The current findings offer valuable support to health practitioners in making recommendations about spending time in nature to promote basic health and well being, similar to guidelines for weekly physical.”

Who’ll make the World Cup semifinals?

Halfway through the group stage of the World Cup, Afghanistan and South Africa are out of the qualification race. India, New Zealand, England and Australia are at the top of the table as of now and it’s difficult to see more than one of these missing out on a semifinal slot.

That leaves Bangladesh, West Indies, Pakistan and Sri Lanka – possibly in that order – fighting for a possible fourth place.

WORLD CUP SCHEDULE | POINTS TABLE

New Zeeland

New Zealand

Unbeaten so far, but have arguably the toughest back end among all teams. Definite chance of semifinal slot, but top 2 finish could prove a tough ask.

England

Have three of the current top four still to play, but barring a blip against Pakistan have been imperious. Almost certain to qualify, would be disappointed not to finish in top 2.

Australia

Barring a loss to India, have shown signs of their old dominating style. Still to come up against England and New Zeeland, but qualifying near certain. Top 2 finish no pipedream.

India

All wins, barring a washed out game so far. Would fancy their chances of winning most of the remaining games. Target will be to beat England and top the group stage.

Bangladesh

Have punched above their presumed weight, but have three hurdles in India, Australia and Pakistan if they have to qualify for the semis. Outside chance.

Sri Lanka

A pale shadow of the world-beaters they once were. With India England still to play and a horrible NRR, they’ll have to win everything left to survive the group stage.

West Indies

Have imploded after an impressive start. Their unpredictability and a still decent NRR gives them an outside chance of qualifying, but will need to beat India, New Zealand to do that.

South Africa

Performed well below expectations so far. Have only pride to play for in the remaining three group games.

Pakistan

A win against England apart, haven’t looked the part. With a disastrous NRR, even winning the rest may not be enough to qualify.

Afghanistan

Unsurprising bottom of the table. Qualification no longer a possibility, but still can play for bragging rights against India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Windies.

A round robin with several evenly matched teams and a few unpredictable ones is always a forecaster’s nightmare, but the rain factor at the Cup has made it more of a lottery. Windies can ill afford any more washouts while the others will hope if the weather does intervene it does so in games against tough rivals.

Shikhar Dhawan ruled out of World Cup 2019, Rishabh Pant in as replacement

Team India’s World Cup campaign suffered a major jolt on Wednesday as opener Shikhar Dhawan was ruled out of the tournament due to a thumb injury. Rishabh Pant has been brought in as a replacement of Shikhar Dhawan. The opener suffered a hairline fracture during his match-winning 117-run knock against Australia at The Oval on June 9.

“Shikhar Dhawan has a fracture at the base of the first metacarpal of his left hand. He will remain in cast until mid-July which rules him out of ICC World Cup. We have requested Rishab Pant as the replacement,” said Team India Manager Sunil Subramaniam.

In the absence of Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul had opened India’s innings with Rohit Sharma against Pakistan. Rahul was impressive in that match scoring 57 and sharing a record 136-run stand for the 1st wicket.

India has had a great start to their World Cup campaign. They have won against South Africa, Australia, and Pakistan while the game against New Zealand was washed out. India faces Afghanistan next on June 22 before they take on West Indies, hosts England, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka.

With six centuries, Shikhar Dhawan is one of India’s most prized assets in ICC tournament. He has scored three tons each in Champions Trophy and in World Cup. Along with Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli, Dhawan forms a formidable top-3.

What perhaps prompted the team management to finally make an announce Dhawan’s injury was the fact that even Bhuvneshwar Kumar sustained an injury during the Pakistan match.

India would have had only 13 players to choose from against Afghanistan if Pant was not brought in as a replacement. Bhuvneshwar is out of three matches with a hamstring niggle.

“Bhuvneshwar is being assessed by team physio Patrick Farhart,” team’s trainer Shankar Basu said.

Rishabh Pant approved as a replacement player.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) has confirmed that the Event Technical Committee of the Men’s Cricket World Cup 2019 has approved Rishabh Pant as a replacement player for Shikhar Dhawan in India’s squad for the remainder of the tournament, a statement from the global body said.

Motorola One Vision to launch today: Expected India price and other exciting features to look forward to

Motorola has been talking a lot about the One Vision since its launch last month in Brazil. The One Vision is supposed to be Motorola’s first premium offering above the G7 series this year and will succeed the Motorola One Power from last year. The One Vision separates itself from other smartphones with its uniquely wide and tall 21:9 display – something that we have only seen on Sony smartphones lately. The One Vision is Motorola’s offering in the midrange segment.

The One Vision has been positioned in the premium midrange segment in Brazil, with prices starting at approximately Rs 23,000. However, Motorola has been aggressive with its pricing in the Indian market and it is expected that the One Vision could be priced lower to take on the Samsung Galaxy M40. Therefore, we could probably see the One Vision being priced at around Rs 20,000 in India.

For premium midrange smartphone, the One Vision has a lot to offer. The One Vision sports a premium glass design with exciting gradient colours. The Moto dimple at the back also houses the fingerprint sensor – isn’t that cool? With its 21:9 format display, the One Vision adopts a slender profile. The display measures 6.3-inches and uses an IPS LCD panel. It gets a hole-punch style camera on top, thereby avoiding a display notch.

Inside, Motorola is using a Samsung-made Exynos 9609 chipset and pairs it with 4GB RAM and 128GB storage. The phone is part of the Android One program which means Motorola could deliver two guaranteed Android updates as well as timely security updates. A 3500mAh battery power the device and Motorola’s proprietary 15W TurboPower charging is meant to fill up the battery faster.

The One Vision also boasts of good camera performance. For the rear, Motorola has used a combination of a 48-megapixel Samsung GM-1 sensor with F1.7 lens and a 5-megapixel depth sensor. For the front, there’s a 25-megapixel camera for selfies. Both cameras rely on Pixel Binning technology.

#MotorolaOneVision is only available in a single variant in Brazil – 4GB RAM and 128GB storage. India is also expected to get the same variant. The One Vision could rival the Galaxy A50 and Redmi Note 7 Pro in India.

Delhi to Mumbai in just 10 hours by train, Delhi to Howrah in 12 hours

There is good news for those who frequently travel between Delhi to Mumbai, and Delhi to Howrah as the Indian Railways has planned to embark on an ambitious project to reduce the travel time considerable for these locations. Soon, you will be able to reach Mumbai from Delhi in just 10 hours by train. The distance between Delhi to Howrah will be covered in 12 hours.

According to media reports, the Indian Railways plans to achieve a speed of 160 kmph on these routes by 2023, which means a reduction of travel time by five hours on Delhi and Mumbai route. This also means five-and-half-hours of journey time saved between the national capital and Kolkata.

The railways has finalised this proposal as a part of its 100-day agenda under the Narendra Modi government’s second edition say media reports. The railways has estimated to spend around Rs 13,500 crore in shoring.

These two routes are very busy and there is an immediate need to shore up the track infrastructure. These two tracks account for nearly 30 per cent of passenger and 20 per cent of total freight traffic. As per the media reports, the ministry has sent the proposal to the PMO in this regard.

5 Foods That Can Aid Quick Weight Loss

Eating more of these foods can help you slim down. 

While no one food is a magic bullet for weight loss, there are certain foods that can help you achieve your weight-loss goals. Most of the foods included as part of a weight-loss diet have a few things in common: they’re high in fiber and have a low energy density—meaning that you can eat a decent-sized portion without overdoing it on calories. Include the following weight-loss foods as part of a healthy overall diet, and you may find it’s easier to achieve your weight-loss goals.

Avocados

Avocados are rich in monounsaturated fatty acids, dietary fiber, potassium and phytochemicals. People who eat avocados tend to have lower BMI, body weight and waist circumference than people who skip this green superfood, per a study in Nutrition Journal. While avocados are higher in calories than other fruits and vegetables, their satisfying fat and fiber combo may help you slim down. Add some to your salad, sandwich or taco night for a burst of creaminess and flavor.

Eggs

Eggs are rich in high-quality protein, fats and essential nutrients, like vitamin D and choline. It’s the protein, and the time of day we tend to eat them, that especially makes them a powerhouse for weight loss. Eating a high-protein breakfast promotes weight loss, because protein increases satiety while regulating hunger and appetite hormones, helping fend off your hunger until lunchtime. One study found that eating eggs for breakfast left people feeling more satisfied than those who had bagels—which helped them eat less throughout the day.

Salmon

Salmon is a rich source of high-quality protein and provides plenty of “good” fats: omega-3 fatty acids. A diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids helped people feel more satisfied when they were watching their calories, per a study in Appetite. Eating salmon can be a delicious and versatile way to get your recommended two weekly servings of heart-healthy fish.

Salmon

Fruits

Fruit gets a bad rap sometimes because it naturally contains sugar. But eating fruit can help you lose weight, especially when you swap in fresh fruit for processed foods or other unhealthy snacks. You’ll get a naturally sweet treat, plus reap the benefits of fiber and antioxidants. A recent study published in the Journal of Nutrition found that higher fruit consumption was associated with lower risk of becoming overweight or obese, independent of vegetable or fiber intake—though including fruit as part of a healthy diet overall is always the best strategy.

Almonds

Almonds are an excellent source of fiber, and they’re high in protein. Eating foods with the one-two punch of fiber and protein can help you feel fuller longer—which makes it less tempting to reach for an unhealthy snack between meals.

Rich in vitamin E and a good source of heart-healthy mono- and polyunsaturated fats, almonds are a great choice to sprinkle over a salad or side dish. You can also use them in pesto in place of walnuts or pine nuts, top your morning granola with them, or simply keep a small bag in your purse as an emergency snack.

Florida supporters on why they want Trump to win in 2020

On Tuesday night in Orlando, Florida, Donald Trump “officially” kicked off his presidential re-election bid.

Of course, everyone knew he was going to run for re-election. That was hardly a surprise. He filed his 2020 paperwork the day after his January 2017 inauguration, and he’s been holding regular campaign-style rallies across key battleground states ever since.

And so on Tuesday in Florida – one of the biggest of electoral battlegrounds, a state the president absolutely must win in 2020 – it wasn’t about whether Mr Trump was going to seek re-election. It was about how he’s going to do it. The event was an unveiling of sorts – a trial run of his pitch to the American people for four more years, before a raucous, red-hat-wearing crowd packing a 20,000-seat arena.

Trump rallies are always a give-and-take affair, with the president trying out lines to see how his supporters react. And the crowd’s response to Mr Trump’s 78-minute speech offered some clues of what could be in store.

There were the expected boasts about the state of the American economy, which he called “perhaps the greatest economy in the history of our country”. He talked about regulation-cutting, boosts in military spending, trade negotiations, tax reform, border security and judicial appointments. All received a warm reception from the audience.

“What he’s done for this country, the manufacturing jobs coming back, our steel industry coming back, wages for the average American going up, Americans are getting back in homes again – it’s a beautiful thing,” said Robert Adamson, an insurance salesman from Merritt Island, Florida. “This is the only platform he really gets where he gets a fair shake at being able to divulge his achievements.”

The Trump phenomenon has always been about more than policies, however – more than just “promises made and promises kept,” as Vice-President Mike Pence said in his exceedingly conventional introductory speech.

Mr Trump’s success has been about attitude and the ability to connect with his supporters, to make them feel like they’re a part of his movement. And that was once again on display in Orlando.

“I think he resonates with people because he comes across as a regular person,” said Paul Barka, a maintenance worker for a college in Tampa, Florida. “He doesn’t talk like a polished politician. It doesn’t matter if he comes across as being rash or harsh or even ignorant at times.”

At one point, the president polled the audience on whether he should keep “Make America Great Again” as his 2020 campaign slogan or opt for “Keep America Great.” The deafening response to the latter option seemed to surprise even him.

Similar levels of audience approbation came when he thanked outgoing press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who briefly took the microphone to say how honoured she was to have a front row seat to history.

She has been one of the president’s most ardent defenders, and the crowd showed their love.

“She’s been a fighter,” says Christopher Dunn, a graduate student who travelled to the rally from northern Florida with some friends. “It’s not conflict we want, we want somebody who won’t roll over.”

Then there was the airing of grievances. If Tuesday’s rally was any indication, the overriding theme of the president’s re-election campaign will be a bid for vindication – vindication against his critics in the “fake news” media, in the Democratic Party and among the nation’s elite. It’s all part of “the swamp,” which he said has been fighting back against him “so viciously and violently”.

It’s Mr Trump and his faithful against the Democrats, the media, the world – and, if his speech is a guide, that’s just the way president wants it.
