The story begins with an announcement by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, an eminent Indian movie maker, who has been touching our hearts since forever. The announcement of his next big project – Padmaavati, oops! Padmaavat, with his favorite duo Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone. As soon as the shooting for the movie began in Rajasthan, members of the Rajput Karni Sena have been making it a difficult task to produce something so enigmatic, that they eventually were supposed to love!
Students getting involved in politics isn’t news in the Philippines. Student protesters, who call themselves activists, allegedly fighting for the rights of their fellow men and standing for those who do not have a voice – at least that is what they say they do. Add to that their self-given right to roast politicians they invited to symposiums not intended as such.

More than a century ago, in 1907, denizens of Darjeeling and neighboring regions felt that, with their ethnicity and unique identity, a separate state should be formed. It was needed for the citizens of the land to identify themselves as to who they were.

Escalating numbers of dead bodies, severe hunger, constant protests, the heavily armed Boko Haram, and a very shaky administration; is Nigeria stumbling to the ground? Well, this is a question that still remains unanswered! With President Muhammadu Buhari still in his alleged “deathbed”, it’s still too early to make predictions on the fate of the once one of the greatest countries Africa ever boasted of. But as at now, any layman can attest to the fact that Nigeria is really on the brink.
