Witness the Gateway of India, Mumbais iconic monument, in sugar at the 43rd annual cake show which opens for public at the St Josephs Indian High School grounds, opposite Kanteerava stadium on Friday. The 15-foot-tall replica weighing 1,200 kg was made by a seven-member team over 75 days. "The model is entirely made of sugar. We made bricks, sheets and other individual components which were then assembled here. It is a challenging task, but it helps us develop our skills," said Narmada Lingathuri, who is part of the team. All the creations at the show, part of the National Consumer Fair, are made by staff and students of the Institute of Baking and Cake Art (IBCA).

Gujarat elections 2017 | I am still your own Narendrabhai: PM Modi 11.12.2017 DNA: Popular News
After the first phase of polling ended on Saturday with around 68 percent of the electorate casting votes, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday addressed four rallies in North and Central Gujarat which go to polls in the second and final phase on December 14. Modi addressed rallies in Palanpur, Sanand, Kalol and Vadodara. At around 11.45 am, the PM reached Palanpur in his helicopter and addressed a huge gathering. "Did you miss me or not? Though I have become the PM, I am still your own Narendrabhai. Those who have raised questions over my origin and caste have not only insulted Gujarat but the post of the Prime Minister," he said. Lashing out at Rahul Gandhi, the PM said, "He thinks vegetable farming happens in the factory. He doesn't know the hard work a farmer has to put in." The PM said if the BJP government wins the election, it will turn Banaskanta into a transportation hub of India in next five years. He also said that Pakistan was interfering in Gujarat polls, and sought an explanation from the ...
