Kamal Haasan’s Vishwaroopam crunches as ‘Cultural Terrorism’ takes over magnum opus of Indian Cinema

Image


Vishwaroopam.
Similar to its name and feel is a big budget movie written, produced, directed and even acted in lead role by none other than magnum opus of Tamil (moreover World) cinema. The finest and most sensible actor as superstar Rajnikanth puts it was about to take Tamil cinema to a next level with his vision and a world class project as this. But what followed was alarmingly disturbing as well as uninvited and unexpected after its release date.

In the very beginning when Kamal Haasan unwrapped his novel plan to boost the economy of his project in which he has possibly invested almost all his property of lifetime got setback when theatre owners refused to screen the film citing a possible narrow hit their revenue might face if Kamal went with his ideas. Kamal Haasan actually dreamt to air Vishwaroopam on DTH platforms hours before its release in the theatres. Irk of theatre owners almost halted Kamal's brainchild and at last got its release date postponed much t…

Shah Rukh Khan - We all stand tall in solidarity with you. Live on...

Anticipated 2013 has not begun so well for the world. Be it Syrian
outrage, hostage crisis or banning a class apart film, making fuss out
of an interview at home turf. Some people for sure are getting
intolerable!

An actor not just known penchantly but reckoned with worldwide fervour
provides one first person interview to a magazine and whole lot of
things develop. Shah Rukh Khan in an interview which actually was in
connection with the 9/11 attacks states that because of his last name
which falls in security list of Airport officials of many western
countries, he has been caught up in vivid problems.

Real drama was yet to unfold! Khan gets associated with Muslim - an
islamic religion which again somehow catches eyeballs of Pakistan.
Some nemesis like 26/11 mastermind Hafeez Saeed jump the gun and
invites SRK into Pakistan citing more safer environment in Pak! One
wonders with SAFER PAKISTAN!! Is it really safer? World knows
better... His statement irks Indian states t…

Dung beetles use stars for orientation!

Image
An insect with a tiny brain and minimal computing power has become the first animal proven to use the Milky Way for orientation. Scientists from South Africa and Sweden have published findings showing the link between dung beetles and the spray of stars which comprises our galaxy. Although their eyes are too weak to distinguish individual constellations, dung beetles use the gradient of light to dark provided by the Milky Way to ensure they keep rolling their balls in a straight line and don't circle back to competitors at the dung pile. "The dung beetles don't care which direction they're going in; they just need to get away from the bun fight at the poo pile," said Professor Marcus Byrne from Wits University. Byrne and his team previously proved that dung beetles use the sun, the moon and polarised light for orientation. In their experiments, they gave the beetles "caps" which blocked light from reaching their eyes. The team also discovered that the b…

The above picture taken afresh in the morning at exactly 9:50 AM ofinauguration day of 18 January, 2013 hours before the planned function is one vital proof of hectic chaosorganizers are going through in the very morning of due date when all works were meant to be completed.
As stage is getting prepared inside, the drill sound too is piercing onto ears of people standing outside in wait of state govt.officials. Decorators are decorating, stage is being erected inside, gates are opened( which were closed till date), m…

Swami Vivekananda's 1893 Chicago speech

On Swami Vivekananda's 150th birth anniversary, here's the full text
of his famous Chicago speech through which he introduced Hinduism at
the Parliament of the World's Religions, Chicago in 1893.

September 11, 1893

Sisters and Brothers of America It fills my heart with joy unspeakable
to rise in response to the warm and cordial welcome which you have
given us. l thank you in the name of the most ancient order of monks
in the world; I thank you in the name of the mother of religions; and
I thank you in the name of the millions and millions of Hindu people
of all classes and sects. My thanks, also, to some of the speakers on
this platform who, referring to the delegates from the Orient, have
told you that these men from far-off nations may well claim the honor
of bearing to different lands the idea of toleration. I am proud to
belong to a religion which has taught the world both tolerance and
universal acceptance. We believe not only in universal toleration, but
we accept al…

Suspected tablet Thief Posts His Photo on Victim's Facebook Page!

One alleged tablet thief in South Africa may be the newest addition to
our list of dumb criminals caught through Facebook.

James and Barbara McCall experienced a recent spate of burglaries at
their guesthouse in Hillcrest, KwaZula-Natal, and found their Samsung
tablet missing after the latest incident, South Africa-based IOL News
reported.

Upon discovering the theft, McCall changed the login passwords for his
social networks; that's when he saw a man's photo had been uploaded to
his wife's Facebook page. He said he believes the man is one of the
burglars.

"He probably did not realize he was doing it. Usually you never log
off from a tablet, so it could have happened quite quickly."

McCall handed the photo over to police, but so far, no arrests have been made.

Kingston Introduces the World's First & Fastest 1TB USB Flash Drive

Remember when USB flash drives had the capacity of a couple megabytes?
Those times are long gone, as Kingston introduced what they claim is
the world's first 1TB USB 3.0 flash drive.

The DataTraveler
HyperX Predator 3.0, as it's called, has read/write speeds of up to
240MB/s and 160MB/s, boasting SuperSpeed USB 3.0 certification.

The drive is available in 512GB capacity right now, while the 1TB
version is expected to hit the market in Q1 2013.

The price for the 512GB is a whopping $1,750, meaning the 1TB variant
will likely be too expensive for, well, almost everyone. For less
demanding users, Kingston has also launched slower and smaller USB
drives, with capacities of 32GB and 64GB and read/write speeds of
150MB/s and 70MB/s.
