Coming home via Bollywood 24.9.2017 The Tribune
Nonika Singh A highly qualified doctor settled in Detroit talks nineteen to dozen about Hindi films, can’t get over the Shah Rukh Khan show she attended a few years ago.  In New York, it’s not just the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Awards ’s chosen venue the Metlfe Stadium that is packed to capacity. The hotel in New York’s Times Square, where star attendees of IIFA were put up, too, was swarmed by NRI fans.   If young students of New York University are only too enthused to pitch in extra hours as volunteers for IIFA, mature women masquerade as journalists and gatecrash.   Actual media interactions are interspersed with frenzied cries of “We love you Salman” and even hardnosed journalists can’t resist a selfie with the superstar.  Bollywood, we all know, is a universe in itself.

Rivers gasp for lifeline 24.9.2017
THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Kerala lags behind in the protection of its 44 rivers all of which originate from the Western Ghats. The rivers, backwaters, streams, canals and other inland water bodies, which are monsoon-fed, shrink into rivulets or dry up during summer due to sand mining and development activities. As the World River Day is observed on the last Sunday of September, experts say that there is no co-ordination among various departments for the protection of our rivers. As per the statistics provided by the Indian meteorological department, the annual rainfall of Kerala is more than double the national average. It receives about 3107 mm as against the national average of 1197 mm. Kerala has a rich biodiversity and the tropical rainforests are spread across 13 agro-ecological zones based on topography, rainfall distribution, soil and altitude. Nonagenarian Sunderlal Bahuguna, noted Garhwali environmentalist and Chipko movement leader, had said, "it is because of forests alone the rivers are ...

New Zealand election ends in stalemate 24.9.2017 The Tribune

Wellington: The New Zealand general election ended in stalemate with official results showing the minority New Zealand First party in a position to play kingmaker and in no hurry to decide which major party it will support. It could be at least another two weeks before the outcome is known after PM Bill English’s National party fell just short of confirming a fourth-term in power. The charismatic Jacinda Ardern, who revitalised the main opposition Labour Party, also failed to muster sufficient numbers. With 61 seats required to govern, National won 58 and its sole remaining political ally, ACT secured one. Labour won 45 seats with its political partner Green on seven. PTI
