Kabul forwards a request letter to India for launching an exclusive satellite for Afghanistan:

Three months after the successful launch of South Asian Satellite, India now has got a request to launch a satellite for a foreign country. As per the reports, the Afghanistan government has asked Indian officials to launch a special satellite for their specific use only. The Government official said in a letter that the request is made by the Afghan Ministry of Telecommunications and Technology to the Indian officials.

The request was made during the meeting between Afghanistan minister Syed Ahmad Shah Sadat and Indian Ambassador Manpreet Vohra in Kabul. The motive behind the launch of a special satellite is yet nit clear, however, the speculations are that Kabul needs a satellite to find out the terrorist hideout. The two ministers also discussed India opening a terminal in the South Asia Satellite for Kabul only. The South Asia Satellite currently assists small Indian projects.


There will be soon a MoU signed by the Afghan government which would let them use the South Asia Satellite. There are total 12 transponders in the website out of which, 2 will be offered to Afghanistan. The country has its plan to employ these transponders in the field of telecommunications, television services, agriculture, mines and others. The construction work of a special satellite station in Kabul has already started.

In May earlier this year, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani joined the rest of the South Asian countries that supported the launch of South Asian Satellite. The satellite is aimed to benefit all the major South Asian countries and was thus welcomed by major South Asian nations warm heartedly. This was appreciated as a huge regional step by most of the Asian countries.

Kajol uncertain whether to work with Karan Johar or not

Karan Johar & Kajol, the two names come together boasting of many successful movies including Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham and My name is Khan. But, their friendship is now the story of yesteryears. Today, the two big shots refrain from even talking to each other. In a recent interview, Kajol dropped hints that she is no more interested in working with the filmmaker.


Talking about Karan, in his autobiography, Karan said that his 25 year old friendship with Kajol broke before the release of his film Ae Dil Hai Mushkil & Kajol’s actor-filmaker husband Ajay Devgn’s “Shivaay”. The two movies were released on the same date on Diwali last year. As reported by Karan, Ajay said some really nasty things to Karan and hence, ‘no matter what, she’s out of my life’, vowed Karan.

In another interview, Kajol gave a statement that she works with only those people with whom she has some level of comfort. “If you’re not comfortable with the people you’re working with if you cannot speak up, or speak to the people you’re working with…I think communication is a key element in working with people. You can’t work alongside them if you don’t talk,” she said.

When directly asked whether she is open to working with Karan, she said “Let me put it this way, I am not answering any questions on that particular point. If any of my other friends want to offer me a film I’ll definitely do it.”

“I would not have been able to do this film, taken that chance with the film which is in another language without knowing that Dhanush and Soundarya would back me up and safeguard me,” she adds.

Here is what Shraddha Kapoor says about Nawazuddin, racist controversy:

He has everything to fit in almost every role with perfection. You saw him as a reporter in Bajrangi Bhaijaan and as well as a killer gangster in Gangs of Wasseypur. He can pull any role flawlessly, without any chance to think of any flaw. This is the Black Prince of Bollywood, Nawazuddin Siddiqui. Yes, we quote him the Black Prince because that is how we discriminate people- Black & White. Despite giving us so many paramount performances, the 43 year old actor has to face difficulties securing roles because of his conventional looks and yes, color.

On 17th July, the Raman Raghav 2.0 action thriller actor tweeted a post about racism in the entertainment industry- Bollywood, which left all of us speechless and surprised. Siddiqui wrote, “Thank U 4 making me realize dat I cannot b paired along wid d fair and handsome bcz I m dark and not good looking, but I never focus on that. (sic)”


The post was enough to ignite a debate on the social media platform. It was Shraddha Kapoor who spoke about the post recently. Busy with the shooting of her upcoming film Haseena Parkar, Shraddha told a leading daily, “I have always said that personally, my definition of beauty is very different. You can come from any background or caste, you can have any skin colour, but I feel true beauty radiates from within. Of course, I feel that in our society there are pressures, but I don’t agree that it’s only in the film industry. Our industry is always in the limelight and that’s the reason it gets highlighted.”

She added, “I feel what’s important is how to deal with that pressure, and understand the things that truly matter. I feel that there are pressures but its how you handle them that matters. I feel beauty is skin deep.”

Last year only, in an interview, Nawazuddin praised for being fair and giving priority to talent over good looks.

Security forces will hunt down the culprits who are responsible for the lives of the innocents; Army Chief:

Addressing the press on Tuesday, the Army chief General Bipin Rawat said that the security forces of India in Kashmir will hunt down the terrorist who are behind the “dastardly” attack on the innocent Amarnath Yatra pilgrims. He also has instructed his commanders to pursue a relentless pressure on the terrorist in counter-militancy as well as counter-infiltration operations.

General Rawat visited the attack site on Tuesday. The attack on the Amarnath Pilgrims at Anantnag district of Kashmir made the latest national news as 7 pilgrims were killed while 12 were injured. The army chief had some serious talks with the J&K Governor NN Vohra and the CM Mehbooba Mufti. He also addressed a security review meeting with his high ranked army official. State chief secretary BB Vyas and director general of police SP Vaid were also the part of the security review meeting.


The main custody of the security of Amarnath Yatra, where more than 2.5 lakh pilgrims come every year, is with central armed police forces (CAPFs) which have 300 companies (over 30,000 troops). However, this year, the army has also deployed five battalions including 5,000 soldiers for the security of the pilgrimage.

Three units of the Army safeguard NH-44 from Jawahar Tunnel to Srinagar and one unit each ensures safety at northern and southern routes, from Baltal and Chandanwari respectively, to the cave shrine.

Meanwhile, the survived Amarnath Yatra pilgrims have thanked their bus driver Saleem for making them out safe. As the fire broke, Saleem kept driving the bus to save as many lives as he could save.

However, the tragedy could have been saved if the driver has had followed the security restriction, i.e. no vehicle must be on road after 5 p.m.
