Boiling pot: Protests were held across Kashmir on Sunday as tension simmered ahead of Monday’s hearing in the Supreme Court on a batch of petitions challenging the validity of Article 35A. Article 35A, which was added to the Constitution by a 1954 Presidential Order, accords special rights and privileges to the permanent residents of Jammu and Kashmir and denies property rights to a native woman who marries a person from outside the state.
Tough questions: Senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor on Sunday questioned why Prime Minister Narendra Modi readily wore “outlandish” headgears during his trips across the country and abroad but shunned the Muslim skull cap. Tharoor, who was addressing a seminar with the theme ‘Standing up to hatred: Violence and intolerance in contemporary India’, said, “You have seen him [Modi] in various kinds of hilarious extraordinary outfits. But still he always says no to one, why doesn’t he wear the colour green?”
Clearing the air: Days after a helpline number of UIDAI mysteriously started showing on smartphones of hundreds of users, the UIDAI on Sunday said people with “vested interests” are trying to tarnish the image of Aadhaar by taking advantage of Google’s admission of its “mistake”. The UIDAI on Sunday said vested interests used Google's "inadvertent" act on its helpline number to create fear and tarnish the image of Aadhaar.
Noble cause: Away from the glitz and glamour of Tinseltown, filmmaker Sriram Dalton is on a ‘padayatra’ for the last three months to spread awareness on 'dying' rivers of India. Dalton embarked on the journey from Mumbai on May 15 with scores of supporters. Braving blistering heat for 82 days, the group reached Bhopal on Saturday to highlight the issue of commercialisation of water and people’s rights on land, water, and forest.
Up in arms: A year after the citizens of Bengaluru opposed to the construction of a steel flyover, protests are brewing against the ambitious elevated corridor that plans to connect four corners of Bengaluru. While the project promises to save more than Rs 9000 crore by cutting congestion, the flip side of it — the felling of scores of trees — has left activists fuming.
Pressure tactics: A day after a Trinamool Congress (TMC) delegation was allegedly manhandled at the Silchar Airport, the party decided to keep up the pressure on the government over the exclusion of 40 lakh people from the final draft of the National Register of Citizens (NRC) in Assam. The TMC on Friday decided that it would send another team of senior leaders to assess the ground reality in the state after the publication of the NRC draft.

India, with its billions of consumers, is a massive market for streaming services like Netflix, Amazon Prime and others, all of which rely on their subscription packages to fund their content and maintain their profits.

Friendship in Bollywood has been one of the most popular and common emotion. The sacred bond has been made legendary by characters, be it the Jai-Veeru of Sholay or the trio in Dil Chahta Hai.

On this Friendship Day, we bring to you a trip down the memory lane.
