first_imgShakti Kapoor on The Kapil Sharma ShowTwitterIf there’s any actor in Bollywood who would make you roll on the floor laughing with his crazy wild stories, it is none other than Shakti Kapoor, a villain who became the rhythm of heartbeat to millions. And if you invite him to The Kapil Sharma Show, he will shed all his inhibitions to spill out some of the mad incidents of his life on the table.Recalling one such mad but funny incident to Kapil Sharma, Shakti Kapoor, who appeared on the show with his sister-in-law and actress Padmini Kolhapure, revealed how he had gotten into trouble with his wife Shivangi Kolhapure because of a typographical error (Typo) while sending an SMS.”I had bought a small house in Goa and I was looking after the interiors while my wife was in Mumbai at that time. This SMS is a very bad thing. One spelling mistake can make your life a living hell. I messaged her that “I am having a super time. I wish you were her.” I had forgottne to put the last ‘e’,” Shakti Kapoor said on The Kapil Sharma Show.Shakti Kapoor further went on to list the number of problems associated with mobile phones adding that people of his generation were very happy since phones didn’t exist during that time.He said, “Sometimes what happens is that you are supposed to send a message to someone but you send it to another person. Nowadays you have an option to delete the message that you had accidentally sent but most of time it doesn’t work. You keep playing with it on your phone like anything. We people were really happy when there were no mobile phones. Trust me, it has ruined by life.”Meanwhile, The Kapil Sharma Show has been struggling to get back on the list of top 10 TV shows because of the falling TRPs.last_img

first_imgThe Attari-Wagah border is the most important land crossing between India and Pakistan. The suspension of bilateral trade between the two neighbouring countries by Islamabad will hit Pakistani traders and farmers more than Indians, reports indicate. ReutersPakistan’s decision to snap off trade ties with India over the New Delhi’s decision on Jammu and Kashmir will hurt Pakistani traders more than it will affect Indians, according to trade observers. Apart from the sizes of the two economies, the liberal trade environment that Pakistani traders enjoyed until recently by way of the most favoured nation (MFN) is also a factor that could cause more pain to business from across the border.India’s exported goods worth $452.5 million to Pakistan in the first quarter of 2019-20 financial year and the imports totalled $7.13 million, a report in the Economic Times says. In FY19, the total exports to Pakistan amounted to $2.06 billion, while imports were $495 million.India has low dependence on exports to the neighbouring countries including Pakistan, Indian officials point out, according to media reports. India’s $2.72-trillion economy is said to be in a better position to absorb regional trade shocks better than Pakistan’s economy estimated at $288 billion.Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan announced that Islamabad is breaking off trade ties with India to protest India’s action of changing the special status of Jammu and Kashmir by partly abrogating Article 370 and Article 35a of the Constitution. Pakistani exporters had been hit by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s withdrawal of the MFN status to Pakistan following the Pulwama terror attack. The stoppage of all bilateral trade will deal a fatal blow to many export houses in Pakistan that have an India-centric trade strategy.Indian traders will still have the option to access the Pakistani market indirectly through the United Arab Emirates where a lot of unaccounted trade happens through Dubai. On the other hand, India does not import much other than petroleum products from the Middle East, denying Pakistan traders an alternative route. Prime Minister Narendra Modi speaks to Pakistani counterpart Imran Khan in one of the rare one-to-one meetings. Khan’s decision to snap bilateral diplomatic and trade ties will have a symbolic effect.MEAWhile the ban on cross-border trade will hit the traders, it could also affect the people of Pakistan even more. The ban could push up the price of many essential commodities and pharmaceutical products in Pakistan.The nature of products imported by India and Pakistan also indicates a higher human cost for the latter. Imports to India from Pakistan are mostly agricultural produce that has a direct impact on the lives of the small and marginal farmers of Pakistan. Pakistan imports mostly steel, heavy machinery and pharmaceuticals products whose makers are industrial houses with more staying power and wherewithal to find alternative markets. Indian exports also include organic chemicals, cotton, plastics, and dyes.”Trade was practically closed for some time. So, there will be no impact especially on agricultural products,” the report quotes an unidentified official. “The suspension of trade relations will hit Pakistan more as our exports to them have a very limited profile because they did not give us MFN status and violated global trade rules,” the report quoted Ajay Sahai, director general, Federation of Indian Export Organisations, as saying. Sahai explained that such goods have a ready market in South Asia and the Middle East, which will enable India to divert such exports immediately without much cost.”This is a unilateral move and a unilateral loss,” Mohit Singla, Chairman, Trade Promotion Council of India, said. However, Sahai added that shipments in the pipeline will take a hit and it is not clear whether the goods in transit or lying at the ports would be recalled in such a deteriorating situation, the report added.last_img

first_img Share @CBSNews TwitterOtto Warmbier, an American college student who was released by North Korea in a coma last week, died Monday afternoon. He was 22. The family announced his death in a statement released by UC Health Systems, saying, “It is our sad duty to report that our son, Otto Warmbier, has completed his journey home. Surrounded by his loving family, Otto died today at 2:20pm.” The family thanked the University of Cincinnati Medical Center for treating him but said, “Unfortunately, the awful torturous mistreatment our son received at the hands of the North Koreans ensured that no other outcome was possible beyond the sad one we experienced today.” They said they were choosing to focus on the time they were given with their “warm, engaging, brilliant” son instead of focusing on what they had lost. Warmbier was sentenced to 15 years in prison with hard labor in North Korea, convicted of subversion after he tearfully confessed he had tried to steal a propaganda banner. The University of Virginia student was held for more than 17 months and medically evacuated from North Korea last week. Doctors said he returned with severe brain damage, but it wasn’t clear what caused it. Parents Fred and Cindy Warmbier told The Associated Press in a statement the day of his release that they wanted “the world to know how we and our son have been brutalized and terrorized by the pariah regime ” and expressed relief he had been returned to “finally be with people who love him.” He was taken by Medivac to Cincinnati, where he grew up in suburban Wyoming. He was salutatorian of his 2013 class at the highly rated high school, and was on the soccer team among other activities. Ohio’s U.S. senators sharply criticized North Korea soon after his release. Republican Sen. Rob Portman of the Cincinnati area said North Korea should be “universally condemned for its abhorrent behavior.” Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown of Cleveland said the country’s “despicable actions … must be condemned.” Portman added that the Warmbiers have “had to endure more than any family should have to bear.” Three Americans remain held in North Korea. The U.S. government accuses North Korea of using such detainees as political pawns. North Korea accuses Washington and South Korea of sending spies to overthrow its government. At the time of Warmbier’s release, a White House official said Joseph Yun, the U.S. envoy on North Korea, had met with North Korean foreign ministry representatives in Norway the previous month. Such direct consultations between the two governments are rare because they don’t have formal diplomatic relations. At the meeting, North Korea agreed that Swedish diplomats could visit all four American detainees. Yun learned about Warmbier’s condition in a meeting a week before the release the North Korean ambassador at the U.N. in New York. Yunthen dispatched to North Korea and visited Warmbier June 12 with two doctors and demanded his release on humanitarian grounds.last_img
