    Akshay Kumar’s social drama Toilet: Ek Prem Katha is making big waves right since its trailer was released. The film is a love story but it also covers the problems of open defecation and lack of toilets in our country. The film also stars Bhumi Pednekar and is directed by Shree Narayan Singh. It is releasing on 11th August, 2017.

    Here is our Music Review of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha:

    Hans Mat Pagli

    This song will take you back to the 90’s era when music and songs of Bollywood used to be very gracious and there used to be so much passion and honesty in the composing. Hans Mat Pagli begins with a narrative type singing from Sonu Nigam and then those beats raise the music to a very pleasant level. Sonu Nigam and Shreya Ghoshal’s voices are a delight to listen. Vickey Prasad has given a very rural feel to the song which was highly necessary for this film. A beautiful piece of music.


    Bakheda is an adorable song that shows the irresistible longing of romance between the lovers. With Sukhwinder Singh and Sunidhi Chauhan taking charge of the singing, the song has to become charming. The music by Vickey Prasad is playful so that the track becomes enjoyable. A very thoughtful lyrics from Garima Wahal and Siddharth Singh.

    Gori Tu Latth Maar

    Sonu Nigam’s voice has a soothing touch as well as the capability to engage. Gori Tu Latth Maar becomes a listen-worthy track because of him. It’s a decent song with Manas-Shikhar’s music making a mark. The beats are fair and raise the tempo at the right time. It will have more value in the film.

    Subha Ki Train

    Subha Ki Train is a delicately composed song which has all the musical elements of a village love story. The lyrics are simple and sweet, making it a light hearted but a pleasant song to listen. Sachet Tandon and Parampara Thakur’s crooning is appreciable. It is not as powerful as other songs but a decent one to have in the album.


    Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’s songs are beautifully thought and crafted which give an authentic village love story vibe. The songs are simple yet powerful and emotional. The music composers have succeeded in making it close to rural culture. You will enjoy it to the satisfaction.

    Man Opens Fire At Chinese Consulate In Los Angeles, Kills Himself

    Man Opens Fire At Chinese Consulate In Los Angeles, Kills Himself

    A man of Chinese descent fired several shots at the Chinese Consulate in Los Angeles, on August 1, 2017.

    Los Angeles:  A man opened fire at the Chinese consulate in Los Angeles on Tuesday morning, then took his own life in his nearby car, police said.

    There were no other injuries in the shooting, which took place at about 6 am before the consulate was open for the day, said Officer Michael Lopez of the Los Angeles Police Department.

    “Numerous rounds impacted the Chinese consulate,” Lopez said.

    Lopez said the man was discovered in his car dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

    The Chinese consulate, in a short statement, said it was extremely concerned about the incident and had asked the United States to take all necessary measures to protect the security of the building and diplomats working there.

    China has also asked the United States to get to the bottom of what had happened, it added.

    Authorities did not immediately identify the gunman and had few other details about the incident. Lopez said police did not typically release information about suicides.

    China’s state-run Xinhua news agency reported that the gunman was in his 60s and possibly of Asian appearance, according to consulate officials who cited police.

    The report also cited consulate security staff as saying the gunman fired his weapon at least 17 times, leaving bullet holes in the windows and facade of the consulate building.

    In 2011 a naturalized US citizen originally from China was arrested after police said he opened fire at the same building with a handgun. There were no injuries in that incident.

    Tesla Model 3 to Feature Parts From German Chipmaker Infineon

    Infineon will supply parts to Tesla’s upcoming mass-market Model 3 electric car, the German chipmaker said on Tuesday, after being beaten out as initial supplier by Franco-Italian rival STMicroelectronics for the coveted deal.

    Infineon, which supplies chips to control the batteries and motors in eight out of 10 of the world’s top selling electric vehicles, confirmed its parts would go into the Model 3, which is now ramping up for volume production in 2018.

    “We do not comment on the individual models, but we will also will be present in Model 3,” Chief Executive Reinhard Ploss told reporters after Infineon reported third-quarter operating profit just ahead of analysts’ consensus forecast.

    The German company’s products are already in Tesla’s Model S sports car, the world’s top-selling electric vehicle, but the Model 3 – costing $35,000 (roughly Rs. 22,43,000) in the United States – has the potential to significantly outsell the $60,000 Model S.

    STMicroelectronics was first to market with a new class of highly energy efficient 1,200-volt silicon-carbide chips, which brokerage Liberum said helped it win the initial deal to supply power chips for the Model 3. But it predicted Infineon would become a second source of such chips as volumes ramp next year.

    Last Friday, Tesla delivered the first 30 Model 3s to employee buyers, part of more than half a million advance reservations.

    While its presence in the Model 3 could be a boost, Ploss said most of the demand for Infineon’s electric vehicle parts would continue to come from Asia. “Our success is very much dependent on Asia,” he said.

    The company reaffirmed its projection for 8-11 percent revenue growth for the year ending in September, and said its annual operating profit margin, excluding certain items, would be unchanged around 17 percent.

    Infineon shares, which had slipped in early trading, picked up after Ploss signalled it had a renewed appetite for mergers. The stock was up 1.7 percent at EUR 18.70 at 1315 GMT.

    Ploss said the company “continues to explore various acquisition options” after its agreed $850 million deal to buy the Wolfspeed power unit of Cree collapsed under US government scrutiny earlier this year.

    Ploss told reporters on a conference call that Infineon remained interested in deals in the American market, but would be sure to steer clear of technology the US government considers vital to national security.

    Revenue for its fiscal third quarter ended in June was roughly in line with expectations, up 12.2 percent on the same period a year ago to EUR 1.83 billion (roughly Rs. 13,879 crores).

    Quarterly operating income, excluding certain items, rose 33 percent to EUR 338 million ($400 million), compared with analysts’ average forecast of 323 million in a Reuters poll.

    Apple Doubles Down on China as Rivals Pull Ahead

    Apple Inc is binding itself more closely to China as its share of the world’s biggest smartphone market slips and it becomes more reliant on selling services which require government approval.

    A flurry of recent action by Cupertino-based Apple underlines its push to get on the right side of China’s notoriously tough tech regulators, as it looks to revive sales there.

    This weekend it moved to block apps used to evade the country’s Internet censors, a decision that fits with Beijing’s recent crackdown on unapproved online content. And Apple has announced it will establish its first China data centre in the politically important province of Guizhou, and has created the new position of a managing director for Greater China, reporting directly to CEO Tim Cook.

    Apple’s China revenues have stalled, falling for a fifth straight quarter in January-March, when sales grew in every other region. China recently slipped to Apple’s third-largest market, as consumers have switched to newer domestic offerings. The buzz around new launches has also cooled since the iPhone 6 in 2014.

    When it unveiled quarterly earnings on Tuesday, revenue from the Greater China region fell 9.5 percent to $8 billion (roughly Rs. 51,300 crores). Its once coveted iPhone has slipped into fifth position behind offerings from local rivals Huawei, Oppo, Vivo and Xiaomi, analysts said.

    The iPhone’s share of China’s smartphone shipments fell to 9 percent in January-June, from a peak of 14 percent in 2015, according to consultancy Counterpoint.

    Having China’s government on-side will certainly help.

    “Because others have eaten away at Apple’s market share in China, it now has to pay more attention to regulation from government,” said Beijing-based tech analyst Li Chengdong. “China is such a key market for Apple that it has to listen.”

    In the company’s earnings call, Apple Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook said most of the problems in the China market were concentrated in Hong Kong.

    “If you look underneath the numbers, Mainland China was actually flat year-over-year” similar to the overall market in that country, Cook said. “And so we’re very encouraged by that. iPad grew dramatically more than the market. The Mac grew much more than the market.”

    Apple, like other US tech brands including Facebook Inc and Alphabet Inc’s Google, has looked to woo China’s leaders to give it greater access, especially as it pushes services such as its App Store and Apple Pay.

    Services were Apple’s rare bright spot in its struggling China business and logged double-digit revenue growth in Greater China in January-March. Cook said they “grew extremely strongly” during the most recent quarter in China.

    And maintaining momentum is crucial, as device sales may come under pressure again until Apple unveils its new iPhone, widely expected later this year in a milestone launch that will be key to winning back Chinese buyers.

    Friendly signal
    The services push, however, comes with risks.

    China is tightening regulation of what it sees as its cyberspace, including online media, live streaming and gaming, and brought in a new cyber-security law on June 1, pushing firms to store user data inside China’s borders.

    Apple has made swift moves to comply, despite concerns by overseas business groups who say the law’s strict data rules and storage requirements are overly vague.

    The new data centre – part of a planned $1 billion investment in Guizhou province – has a potential political upside too. Beijing wants to turn Guizhou into a tech hub, while President Xi Jinping himself has close ties to the region as a delegate for the province at the Communist Party congress.

    “By setting up a data centre and pulling VPNs, (Apple) is sending a friendly signal to the Chinese government,” said Liu Xingliang, head of the DCCI Internet Research Institute.

    Apple said at the weekend it would remove virtual private network (VPN) services from its China App Store – systems that allow users to bypass China’s so-called “Great Firewall” aimed at restricting access to overseas sites.

    Beijing has targeted VPNs as it bids to tighten control over the domestic internet, a drive that is ramping up ahead of the Communist Party Congress later this year.

    Some said the recent moves jarred with Apple’s stance in the United States last year, when it opposed an FBI court order to break into an iPhone of a gunman who fatally shot 14 people in San Bernardino in December 2015, with Cook saying it would be “bad for America”.

    Cook directly addressed those assertions on Tuesday. He said the company believes in “engaging with governments even when we disagree.”

    “Some folks have tried to link [Apple’s removal of VPNs form the Chinese App Store] to the US situation last year. They’re very different,” Cook said. “In the case of the US, the law in the US supported us. It was very clear. In the case of China, the law is very clear there. Like we would if the US changed the law here, we have to abide by them in both cases. That doesn’t mean that we don’t state our point of view in the appropriate way, we always do that.”

    But the US firm’s gamble here is clear: making moves to appease Chinese censors may prompt criticism outside China, but the firm will hope that local consumers are rather less fazed.

    “It’s normal that Apple wants to get along well with the Chinese government,” said Wang Siyue, 27, a marketing professional in Shanghai, who is a long-term iPhone user.

    “I will buy the next generation (iPhone) when it comes out. I’m just used to it,” Wang said, adding she doesn’t use VPN much, and Apple’s move to take down the app wouldn’t impact her decision to buy a new iPhone.

    Government Forms Panel to Suggest Data Protection Framework Amid Aadhaar Concerns

    The government has constituted a 10-member committee to recommend a framework for securing personal data in the increasingly digitised economy as also address privacy concerns and build safeguards against data breaches.

    The formation of the panel comes amid concerns over personal information being compromised with increasing use of biometric identifier Aadhaar in an array of services – from filing tax returns to availing government doles.

    The committee of experts headed by Justice B N Srikrishna, former judge of Supreme Court, will suggest a draft data protection bill, the IT Ministry said in a release.

    The panel which draws its members from government, academia and industry will study and identify key data protection issues and recommend methods to address them.

    How to Link Aadhaar With PAN Card Online to File Tax Returns

    An office memorandum issued by the Ministry of Electronics and IT said: “The government is cognizant of the growing importance of data protection in India. The need to ensure growth of the digital economy while keeping personal data of citizens secure and protected is of utmost importance.”

    The panel will make specific suggestions to the government on principles to be considered for data protection in India and “also suggest a draft data protection bill”, it said.

    The official note did not specify a timeframe for submission of report by the panel but said it will endeavour to do so “as expeditiously as possible”.

    The panel also includes Aruna Sundararajan, Secretary, Department of Telecom; Ajay Bhushan Pandey, CEO of Unique Identification Authority of India; Ajay Kumar, Additional Secretary, IT Ministry; Gulshan Rai, National Cyber Security Coordinator; and Rajat Moona, Director, IIT Raipur.

    mAadhaar App Review: The New UIDAI App Is a Work in Progress

    The constitution of the panel is significant given the offtake of digital transactions in the country, as also the rising apprehensions around safety of personal data. Although, the Information Technology (IT) Act provisions deal with cyber crime and data protection, but the spike in cashless transactions in the country post demonetisation and an increasing number of business going online have necessitated the need for fresh look at the existing laws.

    Questions have also been raised over data security and privacy safeguards after some websites of the central and state government departments were found to be displaying personal details and Aadhaar numbers of beneficiaries.

    Aadhaar has been issued to over 115 crore people, and many government schemes and subsidies now mandate quoting of the 12 digit identification number. Also, the biometric identifier has been made mandatory for applying for PAN and bank accounts.

    Telecom regulator TRAI too intends to start a consultation on data privacy and security within the telecom networks, particularly with regard to mobile apps seeking user data.

    Srinagar:  Jammu and Kashmir police approached the Pakistan High Commission in Delhi and asked them to claim the body of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorist Abu Dujana, killed by the security forces on Tuesday.

    Munir Khan, Inspector General of Police (IGP) Kashmir told reporters on Tuesday that Pakistan High Commission has been approached to claim the body of Abu Dujana, who belonged to Gilgit-Baltistan in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.

    This is for the first time that the authorities have approached Pakistan High Commission asking them to claim the body of any Pakistani terrorist killed during an anti-terror operations in Jammu and Kashmir.

    Mr Khan went on to say that “If they (Pakistan) don’t claim his body, we will give him a proper burial,” adding that authorities wished Dujana’s parents should get to see their son before burial and for that reason, Pakistan High Commission had been approached.

    Police refused to hand over Dujana’s body to civilians for burial. The senior police officer said “there was no reason to hand over to locals, the body of somebody who did not belong to the Kashmir Valley”.

    Meanwhile hundreds attended the burial of the other Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist Arif Lalihaari, who was killed on Tuesday with Abu Dujana in Hakripora village. Arif was buried in his native Lalihaar village in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district on Tuesday evening.

    Imran Khan Accused Of Sending ‘Obscene’ SMSes To Women Party Leaders

    Imran Khan Accused Of Sending 'Obscene' SMSes To Women Party Leaders

    An estranged woman lawmaker has accused Imran Khan of harassing women leaders in the party.

    Islamabad:  An estranged woman lawmaker of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf on Tuesday accused party chief Imran Khan of harassing women leaders in the party.

    Ayesha Gulalai, who hails from South Waziristan tribal region, in a press conference alleged that “honour” of women affiliated with Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) was not safe.

    Announcing to quit the party, she said, “My integrity matters to me the most” and “I cannot compromise when it comes to my honour and dignity.”

    She also accused Mr Khan of sending “obscene text messages” to women leaders of the party. She refused to share the messages but said that “they were so mean that nobody can tolerate them.”

    Taking a jibe at Mr Khan, she said he suffered from “psychological problems” and “gets jealous of, people who are better than him.”

    She also leveled charges of corruption against PTI government in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa and its Chief Minister Pervez Khattak who she alleged was acting like “mafia boss”.

    Ms Gulalai was elected to the National Assembly on a reserved seat for women from the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA), and has been a staunch and vocal supporter of the PTI and Mr Khan. She resigned from both her party membership and NA seat.

    She rejected reports that she was joining the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PMLN) of Nawaz Sharif but praised Mr Sharif for respecting women.

    “No matter what the charges against him but Nawaz Sharif knows how to respect women,” she said.

    Rejecting the allegations, PTI spokesman Fawad Chaudhry said that Ms Gulalai had “sold her soul to PMLN for money”.

    “It is old tactic of PMLN that they buy people and she (Ms Gulalai) has sold her. She has been used and would be forgotten in 24 hours,” he said.

    Banks typically cut deposit rates once the RBI lowers the policy rate

    The Monetary Policy Committee, headed by Reserve Bank of India Governor Urjit Patel, is expected to announce a rate cut today. A sharp moderation in retail inflation over the past few months has brightened hopes for further monetary policy easing from the central bank, which changed its stance to neutral from accommodative at the start of the year. Forty of 56 economists polled by Reuters predicted the RBI cutting its repo rate by a quarter percentage point to 6 per cent on Wednesday. Two respondents said the central bank would cut the rate by 50 basis points. The RBI is expected to announce its decision at 2:30 pm today.
