Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukhs son Salil Deshmukh recently came to aid of a man from Uttar Pradesh who is stuck in Nagpur due to the lockdown. Salil helped the man to find safe accommodation at a shelter home after he ran out of money.
As per a report in TOI, the man Pradeep Ramchandra, who hails from Uttar Pradesh and is a CCTV expert technician, went to Yavatmal for some work before the lockdown. He returned Nagpur on the day the lockdown was announced by PM Narendra Modi to contain the spread of coronavirus.
Unable to return to his home because of non availability of travelling options, Ramchandra started staying a lodge in Nagpur. As Ramchandra ran out of money, he contacted social worker and Youth Congress member Fazloor Rehman Qureshi. Qureshi contacted the cops who asked the lodge owner to let Ramchandra stay.
As the lodge did not have any arrangement for food, Qureshi thought of shifting Ramchandra to a shelter home and contacted Salil Deshmukh for the same. Deshmukh immediately got in touch with social worker Nutan Rewatkar for the same. Qureshi and Rewatkar took Sadar Polices help to shift Ramchandra to a shelter home in the city.
When Lata Mangeshkar got offended by Dilip Kumar and didn’t speak to him for 13 years
Nightingale of India, late Lata Mangeshkar and legendary actor late Dilip Kumar were known to share a special bond. So much so that the Queen of Melody would also tie rakhi to the latter. She was among the close ones who visited the late actor during his last days. But do you know the reason why their relation had gone sour, as a result of which they did not speak for 13 long years?
The story dates back to the time when Lata Mangeshkar was to sing ‘Laagin Naahi Chhute’ for the film Musafir, in 1957. At that time, Kumar told music composer Anil Biswas, “The Urdu of Marathis (Maharashtrians) is like dal and rice.” This offended the veteran singer, after which she decided to hone her Urdu speaking skills.
After 13 years when they met in 1970, the veteran singer remarked, “You know, Yusuf saab, I’d always heard you loathed me for being one up on you while recording the Laagi Naahin Chhute Rama duet with you in Musafir. But I only sang the way I can’t help singing any number.”
To this, Kumar gleefully asserted, “It’s precisely because you can’t help singing the way you do that my family and I adore you! How possibly could I loathe a voice so heavenly!”
On February 6, 2022, due to COVID-induced prolonged illness, the illustrious singer passed away in Mumbai.

‘Even Modiji can’t finish my political career:’ Pankaja Munde
BJP National Secretary Pankaja Munde said even Prime Minister Narendra Modi wouldn’t be able to end her political career if she lived in people’s hearts and minds. Munde said the same on Tuesday while addressing a public rally — part of PM Modi’s birthday celebrations for a fortnight across Maharashtra — at Ambajogai in Maharashtra’s Beed district.
Munde said, “If I live in people’s mind and heart, even Modiji cannot end my political career… Dynasty politics has been prevailing in the Congress party. Modiji, however, wants to end the dynasty rule… I hail from a political family, but if I live in your mind and heart, nobody will be able to finish (end the career) me. If I live in people’s minds and hearts, even Modiji cannot finish my political career.”
