Top-10-Breaking-News-we-come-across-every-year-in-India

Top 10 Breaking News we come across every year in India

Each year we come across few breaking news in India, which often seems to be an annual phenomena. Even in 2018 these topics apparently sound afresh. Here are some of biggest breaking news events we keep coming across every year. Strangely the interest for these topics has always increased year over year.

  1. Himalayan level corruption and scandals

Year after year, corrupt business men or politicians or even scandalous civilians have continued surprised us by upping their scandal game. Due to lack of adequate consumer rights protection and lack of severe punishments being executed by the legal system, corruptions are exceeding their magnitude. From the Mundhra Scandal to Bofors Scandal, Harshad Mehta’s securities scam, Kargil Coffin Scam, Stamp Paper Scam, National Herald Land Scam to the present Rafale Fighter Plane Scandal, no ruling party has exempted itself from scams so far. Read about the Biggest Scandals that were reported just in this Narendra Modi led BJP Government.

  1. India Pakistan Border Shoot out

The India Pakistan Border or locally called as International Border was formed in the year 1947, right after the independence. The border between India and Pakistan is a highly complex zone with a length of 2,900 Kilometers that runs in the midst of deserts, urban areas and fertile lands. The separation of Pakistan from British India has created a permanent rift between the two Nations. Illegal Border crossings, minor agitations or even simple media duels between the politicians of two nations create border shoot outs, bomb attacks or attempts of suicide bombings across the border. Thousands of Jawans and innocent people have been killed due to these border shoot outs so far. Hopefully in some point of time, we would like this particular news item not resurface again in the news.

  1. Mysterious Deaths, Celebrity Suicides and Lost Forever

From actresses to politicians to civilians India witnessed a long list of people and celebrities who died either mysteriously or lost permanently without getting traced ever after. Actress Divya Bharathi, Actress Jiah Khan, Nafisa Joseph, Actress Sridevi, Actress Soundarya, Parveen Babi, Actor Sai Prashanth, Uday Kiran, Sunanda Pushkar the wife of Minister Shashi Tharoor and few others have been found dead due to suicide or mysterious circumstances.

  1. Biased Justice for Rich and Poor

The pendency rate stands with 3.3 crore cases pending in Indian courts with many of them waiting for justice for more than 20 years. The Indian Justice System has got one of the greatest legal foundations to maintain peace in the civilian system. However after Independence the number of crimes and criminal cases has increased drastically year after the year. Often times referring to the way justice has been served differently to different part of the society, question arises whether the justice system has been fair and uniform to one and all. Take examples of Salman Khan’s 20 years of bail plea, Vijay Mallya extradition requests, Nirav Modi escape across Indian borders and others when compared to the instant punishments of a common man who couldn’t pay a mere 1 lakh rupees loan.

  1. Rich Poor Divide

In 2017, the richest 1% of 1.3 Billion Indians own 73% of the Nation’s wealth while the wealth of the poorest half of Indians some 67 crore rose by only one per cent. This fact will be able to paint the picture in your mind. Each year the Indian Economy and GDP Growth % has been impressive. Naturally this should mean the collective growth of the economy and the people inclusive of the economy were supposed to have grown. This has not been the case in India. The wealth of Indian billionaires has been increased by Rs 4,891 billion – from Rs 15,778 billion to over Rs 20,676 billion. That amount of Rs 4,891 billion was sufficient enough to finance 85 per cent of the budget on health and education in all Indian states. But these are just mere knowledge that may not be put into good use.

  1. Nuclear Tests

India’s nuclear mission programme was initially conceived for generating nuclear energy to supplement and reinforce their energy requirements. But over the years nuclear missions have been largely perceived by countries as the main stream of protection to keep themselves safe from nations. India too followed the lead and started building a systematic phased nuclear missions to improve its’ stature in the world arena. India built nuclear power reactors, nuclear missiles and weapons to strengthen the national security. Thought it is said India has at least 110 nuclear weapons, India maintains a “no-First use” nuclear policy.

  1. GDP Growth

India is the 6th largest economy in the World by nominal GDP and 3rd largest by purchasing power parity (PPP). Indian GDP Growth rate stands at 8.2% year on year in the 2nd quarter of 2018. GDP Annual growth rate in India averaged 6.16%. The Indian economy grew 8.2 percent year-on-year in the second quarter of 2018, above 7.7 percent in the previous three months and beating market expectations of 7.6 percent. It is the strongest growth rate since the first quarter of 2016, boosted by household spending, financial, real estate and manufacturing activities across its states. Read about the Top 10 Indian States by their contribution to India GDP. Multiple income opportunities for middle class people and regulations free cross-border trade have boosted Indian economy to a greater extent. This by all means, Indian economy is in a fast growth track. Let us only not give up the hope that good times will come to average Indian families.

  1. Beauty Pageants

In the field of beauty and fashion, Indian Nation has marked its presence in the field of beauty and fashion in the World. So far three out of the Big Four international beauty pageants India has won nine victories. India has won two Miss Universe Crowns , Six Miss World Crowns and One Miss Earth Crowns so far. Starting with Reita Faria, Sushmita Sen Aishwarya Rai, Diana Hayden, Yukta Mookhey have won several laurels. Later Lara Datta, Priyanka Chopra, and Dia Mirza won international beauty pageants. After them Nicole Faria and Manushi Chhillar won international beauty pageant events. Their titles meant a lot to boost the Indian brand in fashion world.

  1. Petrol, Diesel and Fuel Price Hike

It is a very touchy subject in India. From middle class families to large scale traders Indians are now used to rely on personal vehicles and commercial vehicles for transportation. For household use of LPG, Petrol for personal light motor vehicles and Diesel for Heavy motor vehicles the Indian economy relies on fuels a lot. Indians pay a lot of taxes on using Fuels too. Hence a few paise increase every day, means a severe blow to Indian Citizens who consume several millions litres of Fuels. In 1988, the petrol fuel price stood at just INR 8.5. Today, the Petrol price stands at INR 86 rupees. This continued inflation of Fuel prices have increased the price of every-day needs such as grocery, vegetables, transportation and even Water. 80% of fuel for India have been bought from foreign countries. India should adopt more eco-friendly fuel  alternatives within the country and regulating public, private transportation to curb rising fuel prices.

  1. Cricket and Movie Blockbusters

Without doubt, Cricket from the Sports Industry and Movie Industry have got their reputation upped over the years after independence. Today Indian Movie Industry has become one of the Indian Identities. In Sports world, Cricket and India are almost Unanimous. Having won multiple World Cups in the Cricket Sport, India has got the biggest fan base for the sport. Indian Films are released Worldwide and have won few Oscar Awards and received international accolades. Celebrities from Cricket and Movies have become faces of India in several Industries across the World. Read the Top ten movie industries of India.

I may have missed covering some other sensational breaking news items. I look forward to recall them in your comments below.

Raman Raghav 2.0 is a psychological thriller movie directed by Anurag Kashyap that shows the wild chase and action packed story of a serial killer and a corrupt police man. This story too is based on a killer named Raman Raghav. Audience and reviewers rated that this is a crude movie that is difficult to watch for many weak hearted. The movie has a balance of adult scenes, drugs, murders, action to give that intensity for a serial killer film.

  1. Paanch, 2016

This movie tells the story of five youth 4 males and one female characters waste their youth and goes on a self-destruction mode. A kidnapping plot gets spoilt and takes wild twists and ends in an interesting manner. This was the directorial debut for Anurag Kashyap. The film was released after several blockades from Indian Censor Board. However, the film was appreciated in International screenings.

  1. No Smoking, 2007

No Smoking Movie is a neo-noir psychological thriller directed by Anurag Kashyap with lot of technical excellence. The movie was nominated for several awards and won a few. The film was well received in international screenings but in India it was severely criticized. After all this movie was simply supposed to spread awareness and reduce the habit of smoking. A man attempts to overcome his inner fears & temptations and the trials & tribulations connected with the process of trying to do so. Anurag Kashyap himself has felt bad about it and wondered whether he has directed a movie that is far ahead of its times. We do agree with that.

  1. That Girl in Yellow Boots, 2010

Though many say that this is a failure movie in Anurag Kashyap’s filmography. The thriller movie tells the story of an English Girl pursuing his Indian origin father to seek her lost sister. She gets lost eventually in the city by losing herself. The movie shows love, lust, family, values and lot of pain in Anurag Kashyap’s own movie making style. However this movie didn’t do commercially well and did attract few negative comments for explicitly showing raw content for common audience.

Oh, what a surreal journey of Anurag Kashyap with his continuously radical attempts on different genre. We wish Anurag Kashyap and his partners from dissolved Phantom Films Vikramaditya Motwane, Madhu Mantena and Vikas Bahl all the very best.

Holi Festival March 2018 – Top 10 ways to safely Celebrate Holi

Holi the “Festival of colors” is celebrated on the full moon day in the month of Phalguna (Feb-Mar). Color Powder and Colored water are thrown at relatives, friends and closed ones  to reduce the differences between people—irrespective of their gender roles, caste, status etc. and bring them all together in the celebrations.

Holi Festival is sure a lot of fun. It can turn harmful if you don’t celebrate safely. In recent days because of commercial adulteration, the Holi color powders and color chemicals are often harmful for eyes , throat and nostrils.

Wish you Happy Holi.

  1. Have as much fun with throwing colors at each other. But use only Natural colors and not synthetic colors ones. Harsh Industrial colors or chemicals can damage eyes, hairs, skin, throat and thereby stomach.
  2. Don’t throw colors on children and elderly people. Their levels of immunity or resistance may not be very strong. Chemicals and their odor can develop allergies and adverse reactions on them.
  3. Stay safe from the fire during Holi dehan. Don’t burn things such as tires, tubes, plastics and other wastes which cause pollution along with the wood in Holi ka dehan
  4. Don’t spray color water or chemical colors on animals like dogs and cows. We are used to pollution, but they aren’t. Treating the animals is difficult as always there won’t be vets and medicines available for all sort of treatment.
  5. Apply Oil on Hair and Skin before starting to celebrate Holi Festival. It might act as a natural protective coat once you are done with the celebration.
  6. Try avoiding bhang or drink with control. Getting drunk with Bhang and later riding bikes or cars is highly risky. You might harm yourself and risk the lives of others.
  7. Celebrate Holi with your near ones and dear ones. Don’t go to unknown location and get into unnecessary troubles like molestation or abuse as often with the Bhang and other heights of excitement, often people can’t control themselves. The festival should not become a horrific day.
  8. Holi Festival is full of happiness and colors. Use permitted colors and harmless items to spray at each other. Don’t fill your water balloons and spraying pipes with eggs, mud or junk material.
  9. Avoid eating too much food especially sweets that get distributed widely. Overdose of Sugar or food is not healthy, upset your stomach and often slow you down.
  10. Avoid using harsh soaps on skin for removing colors and any sort of oil like kerosene on clothes they can ruin the cloth. Apply oil and moisturizers on your skin before and after the holi celebration.

Wish you a very Safe  and colorful Holi everyone!!
