Anna Hazare starts another agitation to fight corruption

Anna Hazare starts another agitation to fight corruption

New Delhi: Social activist Anna Hazare will sit on a day-long fast at
Jantar Mantar on Sunday to demand that Parliament pass the Lokpal Bill
and a stronger whistleblower protection programme. Anna will also
protest the death of Madhya Pradesh IPS officer Narendra Kumar, who
was killed by suspected mining mafia on March 8 in Madhya Pradesh.
Narendra Kumar's family is also likely to be part of the Anna's fast
at Jantar Mantar on Sunday.

Anna is demanding protection for whistleblowers, a portion that has
been removed from the final version of the bill drafted by the
government. Families of murdered whistleblowers like S Manjunath and
Amit Jethwa are likely to be at the fast venue.
This will be the first hunger strike undertaken by 74-year-old Anna
Hazare after he called off his three-day fast for a strong Lokpal Bill
in Mumbai last December owing to failing health.
"We have been preparing for the last ten days. We have been sending
out SMSes, distributing pamphlets and doing street plays in Delhi-NCR
(National Capital Region)," said an official of Team Anna. "We are
focusing on the youth and street plays and interactive sessions are
are being conducted in Delhi University and the Jawaharlal Nehru
University (JNU)," added the official.
More than 1,000 police personnel will be deputed at Jantar Mantar, a
senior police officer said on Saturday. Delhi Police have given
conditional permission to Team Anna for the protest on the issue of
alleged killings of several honest men and officers by organised mafia
or in terror attacks.
Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police Seju Kuruvilla said a legal
undertaking has been taken from Team Anna. "The organisers have
confirmed the presence of the father of IPS officer Narendra Kumar who
was killed in Morena district of Madhya Pradesh while intercepting a
tractor-trolley carrying illegally-mined stones," he said.
He said the family of Indian Oil Corporation officer Manjunath
Shanmugam, who was shot dead in Lakhimpur Kheri while trying to stop
sale of adulterated oil, is also likely to be present at Jantar Mantar
on Sunday.
Kuruvilla further added that Team Anna informed him about the presence
of around 40 such families at Jantar Mantar whose kin were either
killed by mafia or during terror attacks.
"We have told them that the crowd should not be more than 1,000
people. Around 10 metal detectors will be placed at three entry points
with 1,000 police personnel to avoid any untoward incident," he added.
Speaking to CNN-IBN, Team Anna member Kiran Bedi said that that the
government's draft of the Lokpal Bill is weak. Bedi said that Anna has
full recovered from his illness. "Anna's health is not a concern. He
is well and has recovered substantially," she said.
"The kind of deaths the whistleblowers' familes have suffered could
have been prevented. All people are looking for is an agency they can
trust," she said.
On the separate law for whistleblowers, she said, "The Whistlebowers
Bill which they have drafted goes back to the same police systems.
It's not an independent system."

Sport News:Messi and I think quicker: Maradona

Diego Maradona believes there is one trait that sets himself and
Lionel Messi apart from the rest when it comes to discussing the best
players of all time - speed of thought.

For many years Maradona was one half of the great debate as to who was
the best ever player - him or Brazilian Pele.

But with Messi's recent record-breaking exploits, many consider him to
be a legitimate contender for that theoretic title.

And while Maradona has never been shy in publicising his own claims
over Pele's, he is less willing to blow his own trumpet when compared
to his Argentine compatriot.

"The (best player) lists make me laugh but there is one ability, most
of all one, that no one has ever had like Leo and myself: speed of
thought," Maradona told Saturday's Gazzetta dello Sport.

"When I coached him the thing I saw in him that reminded me of myself
was the lightning understanding of how the move would develop."

"It's an innate quality worthy of a computer. Had we been able to
communicate with someone who thought at the same speed we could have
both given even more."

Looking just at today's players, Maradona says Messi is in a league of
his own but he has a surprise in his top three.

"My rankings would be Messi, (Cristiano) Ronaldo and then Ibra (Zlatan
Ibrahimovic) and (Wayne) Rooney together and (Sergio) Kun Aguero is in
the top 10 but he's rising."

Maradona also turned his attention to his problems with the Italian
taxman, repeating his often stated claim that he does not owe the 38
million euros being claimed.

And Maradona insists he's been treated unfairly.

Movie news :Actor Salman Khan , Jackie Chan in a Tamil film ?

Aascar Ravichandran, known for his grand projects produced at mammoth scales, has once again pulled a casting coup of sorts.

According to sources from tinsel town, Bollywood star Salman Khan has been roped in for Ravi's multi-starrer, multi-lingual film with Hollywood star Jackie Chan. 
In an earlier interview to this newspaper, Ravi had said that the movie, which could be the sequel to Chan'sblockbuster Armour of God, would be produced at a staggering Rs 400 crore.
He had also revealed that it would have a B-town star and a Tamil 'mass' hero sharing screen space with Chan.
When DC contacted Ravi, he confirmed the news saying, "I have been discussing it with Jackie Chan for the last few years. The script has a global theme with an Indian connection. Yes, talks are on with Salman Khan.
Hopefully, we will seal the deal in a week's time. But we are yet to fix the Tamil star for the project." When asked if the K-town star would be the likes of Rajini and Kamal, the producer refused to divulge any further details.
However, his close aides say that neither 'Superstar' nor 'Ulaganayagan' will be roped in, as they are looking at relatively a younger actor for the high-action entertainment. Meanwhile, some sources say that Suriya is being considered.

Glamorous Priyamani turns down Kamaal R Khan's offer

Glamorous Priyamani has turned down an offer to act in a Bollywood film. The actress was approached by controversial actor-director Kamaal R Khan on Twitter, but the Paruthiveeran girl neither respond nor showed any interest on the forthcoming Hindi film.

Priyamani has claimed that she is not aware of the offer and did not see his message, but the actress assured that she is not interested to be part of the project. She had acted before in two Bollywood films: Raavan and Rakta Charitra.

Reasons for white hair growth in teen age girls:

The white hair in teenage people is commonly known as prematurely
white or grey hair. This can happen due to many reasons. To begin
with, it is possible that this is a hereditary trait. If you are a
teenage girl and are suffering from white hair, you should check out
your family tree. It is possible that one of your parents or
grandparent has had this problem at some point in time and you were
not aware of it. If you have indeed inherited the problem, it is best
for you to know straight away that you may not be able to get rid of
it altogether. The best you can do is to try a few natural remedial
measures to prevent the further whitening of dark hairs. This may
enable you to have fewer white hairs in that the quantity of white
hairs may not increase. In order to make this positive change, you
would have to follow the methods mentioned regularly. To begin with,
you should start applying the powder of black cohosh regularly to your
scalp and roots. This product is available in stores that normally
sell natural or organic products. If you cannot get this in powder
form, you can buy it in pill or capsule form and take it to improve
the quality of your hair. This will also prevent further occurrence of
white hairs.
You should also follow a weekly method of hair care. Apply warm
coconut oil to your scalp at least once a week. This will provide
nourishment and is also known to prevent the whiteness of hair. You
can also eat Indian gooseberries if you can get them fresh. If not,
you can have them in powdered or pill form. These are easily available
in Indian grocery stores. Indian gooseberries are well known to
provide rich nourishment to hair and are also know to reduce the
discoloration of hair. If you wish to dye your hair without using
chemical dyes, you can use henna powder for this purpose. Make a paste
like mixture with two tablespoons of henna powder, a teaspoon of
coffee powder and enough water to make this easy to apply to your
scalp. Remember that you will also have to apply henna to your hair
strands if you wish to color your hair with it. This is not only a
rich conditioner; it will also help to hide the white hairs you have
