Direct attack on Indian secularism: RSS on Delhi Archbishop's circular 22.5.2018 General News
After the Delhi Archbishop called upon all the Catholics to start a year-long prayer campaign ahead of the 2019 general elections, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) ideologue Rakesh Sinha termed the move as a "direct attack on Indian secularism and democracy"."This is a direct attack by the Church on Indian secularism and democracy, and this is a direct intervention by the Vatican as these Bishops are appointed by the Pope. Their accountability is not to India but to Pope," Sinha told ANI."Another big reason for this is after the formation of the Prime Minister Modi's government, church-oriented NGOs, received less money due to stricter laws. The Church organisations used to take this money for a variety of cause but in reality, utilise this only for religious conversions. They want a government to be made so that their conversion business flourishes," Sinha added.Sinha also took to Twitter to vent his thoughts on the matter."Missionaries by meddling in politics giving bad name to ...

Mowgli trailer: Motion-capture sorcery works magic in darker take of 'The Jungle Book' 22.5.2018 DNA: India
Warner Bros released the first official trailer of Mowgli -- A darker take on Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book. Master of motion capture, Andy Serkis is helming the project and he also plays the character of Baloo. The movie features the talents of Benedict Cumberbatch, Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Naomie Harris, Peter Mullan, Jack Reynor, Eddie Marsan, and Tom Hollander for the mo-cap/jungle side. Debutant Rohan Chand plays Mowgli. Matthew Rhys and Frida Pinto round off the human side of the intense movie. The trailer is an intriguing montage of Mowgli's struggle of survival -- sometimes in the taxing, brutal forest and sometimes in an unforgiving human company. Stunning visuals of the wilds are served up on a platter by cinematographer Michael Seresin. Nitin Sawhney's background music simply ads to the melancholy and intensity of the video unfolding in front of you. "We wanted to engage much more closely with the tone of the book. It's not so much a child's fairy tale. This has a reality to it. ...

Jimmy Carter ribs Trump over size of commencement crowd 21.5.2018 General News
Former US president Jimmy Carter got a mischievous dig in at Donald Trump, telling a commencement audience at a Virginia college that he had drawn a bigger crowd than the current president. Looking out at a Liberty University stadium holding an estimated 20,000 graduates, friends and family members, the 93-year-old Carter said, "It's even bigger -- I hate to say this -- than it was last year," when Trump delivered the school's commencement speech. "I don't know if President Trump would admit that or not." Carter's smiling gibe drew good-natured laughs from the crowd at Liberty, a Christian university whose president, Jerry Falwell Jr., has been a vocal supporter of Trump's. The quip from the 39th president took aim at Trump's reaction in January 2017 when television news programs showed pictures of his inauguration crowd that were visibly smaller than those present when Barack Obama was first sworn into office in 2008. Stung by the comparison, Trump directed spokesman Sean Spicer to ..

Belgium leave out Nainggolan for World Cup 21.5.2018 General News
Belgium have left midfield creator Radja Nainggolan out of their World Cup squad, coach Roberto Martinez said on Monday. The absence of Nainggolan, who scored twice for Roma in the second league of the Champions League semi-final against Liverpool this month, was the biggest surprise in the 28-player list that will be reduced to 23 before the tournament. Belgium face England, Panama and Tunisia in Group G at the World Cup. The heavily tattooed 30-year-old has played 30 times for his country and is popular with supporters, but his relationship with Martinez has often been strained. The Spanish former Everton manager said: "It was a sad and difficult decision. He is a player with a lot of class and he was voted Roma's best player, but I've made my decision for purely tactical reasons. "I have put in place a specific system that works. I can't use Radja in a secondary role." Martinez said he had travelled to Rome to explain his choice to the player. In Nainggolan's place, Martinez has ..
