Narendra Modi eyes UP to spice up third year 26.5.2016 DNA: Wide Angle
'Do saal bemisal. Abki baar Modi Sarkar', may not strike a rhythmic tune but prominently marked the banners that dotted the last mile on way to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Vikash-Parv rally at Saharanpur in Western Uttar Pradesh on Thursday.

So, why not have Captain Kirk riding a motorcycle through an alien landscape to the strains of the Beastie Boys’ Sabotage ?

Tinder accuses 3nder of using an “infringing mark,” with both a name and a logo supposedly meant to remind consumers of Tinder.

With so many sexualities and relationship structures left out of Tinder and ...
