Pass on your sarees to your granddaughters as the legacy, says Shaina NC

If you don’t get along with your daughter-in-laws, pass on your sarees to your granddaughters! chuckled queen of drapes Shaina NC during a saree-draping workshop at Nagpur. The workshop was organised by Mahavir International Service Trust, Nagpur, at Hotel Centre Point on December 16, 2016.

 Don’t buy a saree just because it’s expensive and looks lovely. Instead, buy it for the texture and the fall it has. There’s no sense in buying lehengas worth lakhs of rupees for a single usage! You can drape sarees in multiple styles. Young girls must wear sarees often. Saree must be patronised! said Shaina NC.

During the workshop, Shaina demonstrated almost 56 different patterns of draping a saree. Right from draping double sarees, making twisted drapes, giving a shimmer saree a cocktail gown look, making inward pleats, draping a saree in a lungi style, etc, Shaina did it all, that too effortlessly! She presented different styles of saree draping on LAD college girls, who walked the ramp for her.

Nagpur’s Shilpa Agrawal, who dazzled in a lavender coloured shimmer saree, was the showstopper.

Savita Sancheti, chairperson of Mahavir International along with Nidhi Gandhi, Neeta Gupta Archana Javery, Anita Patni and Meenu Bhandari, were also present at the workshop. Mahavir International Service Trust works for the upliftment of underprivileged people.

If you can keep your marriage ordinary, it will automatically be special: Shah Rukh Khan

Gauri and Shah Rukh Khan

Shah Rukh Khan fell for Gauri Khan at the first sight and married her in 1991. Today, the Superstar has three kids with Gauri – Aryan, Suhana and AbRam. In an interview once, King Khan said that ‘their marriage was given way too much importance’.  

“We give marriage a lot of importance and then we try hard to survive it. I believe, if things are done with ease, acceptance and love, anything is possible. Obviously, your marriage will be successful. You know, the best thing we do is, wake up in the morning and have a cup of tea together. It’s a perfect family time. I don’t get why so much importance is given to Gauri and my marriage. If you can keep your marriage ordinary, it will automatically be special,” said SRK. 

On the other hand, Gauri is all praise for hubby Shah Rukh. “He’s the best husband I could ever ask for. Not only that, he’s an amazing father too. I’ve always said that I’m fortunate enough to have a man like Shah Rukh Khan. And I’m not someone who’s gush over things or praise about it, I believe his fans are doing enough of that. I’m a private person and like to keep my love for him private, inside the doors of my house, Mannat.”

Former YES bank CEO Rana Kapoor’s money laundering case | Explained

Rana Kapoor

Delhi High Court granted bail to Yes Bank co-founder Rana Kapoor on November 25, in a ₹466.51-crore money laundering case registered by the Enforcement Directorate (ED).

Kapoor was arrested in 2020 by the federal investigating agency under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA). He was held in Navi Mumbai’s Taloja jail.

On March 31, 2014, YES Bank had a loan book worth ₹55,633 crore and a deposit book at ₹74,192 crore. As of September 30, 2019, the loan book had increased to over four times its original size which would be from ₹ 55,633 crore to ₹2.25 trillion. The bank’s asset quality also deteriorated, following which RBI’s regulator began to investigate it.

According to the investigation agency, Kapoor, his family, and other individuals received perks worth hundreds of crores through businesses run by his family as a kind of payment for approving large loans. According to ED, Kapoor and family ran a byzantine collection of 101 companies from Samudra Mahal through three holding firms including Morgan Credits (MCPL), Yes Capital India (YCPL) and RAB Enterprises.

Rana Kapoor is also accused of accepting bribes for going easy on loans given to a few big corporate groups, which turned into non-performing assets.

In an Enforcement Case Information Report (ECIR), allegations of criminal breach of trust, cheating, criminal conspiracy, and forgery were made against Avantha Group promoter Gautam Thapar, Oyster Buildwell Pvt. Ltd., and others for diverting and misappropriating public funds from 2017 to 2019, resulting in losses ₹466.51 crore to YES bank.

A trial court’s special judge bench had denied Kapoor’s request for bail and ruled that the banker was the target of severe and serious accusations. However, the court had granted bail to 15 of the co-accused. The Enforcement Directorate rejected the bail request in front of the trial court on the grounds that Kapoor had a key role in the creation of criminal proceeds.

However, the attorney for Kapoor stated that since the agency did not detain him while conducting the investigation and the charge sheet had already been submitted, detaining him would be useless.

When denying Kapoor’s request for bail, the special judge noted that the 15 defendants were merely hands and that, according to the allegations in the complaint, they appeared to have been acting or failing to act in accordance with orders from either Gautam Thapar or Rana Kapoor as their agents or employees.

Rana Kapoor, was granted regular bail by the Delhi High Court by Justice Sudhir Kumar Jain Bench on Friday November 25 in the ₹466.51 crore money laundering case brought by the ED.

Kamptee resident Parseoni Police Station officer Jayant Vishnu Sherekar (42) was killed and seven others were hurt when a speeding car lost control and crashed into a crowd of people standing near an accident scene in Nagpur on Wednesday November 23 night near Naya Kund.

Police claim that a carelessly driven truck struck a car travelling in the opposite way. Vikram Singh Bais, the car’s driver, was stuck inside the crumpled car with blood gushing out from his body. To look after this incident, Sherekar and other Parseoni police officers sped over to the scene. A sizable crowd had formed at the scene of the collision, halting traffic.

According to the police, a second automobile entered the scene at a high rate of speed, slammed into bystanders who were standing on the road, and then sped off.

Seven other people, including officer Sherekar, suffered severe injuries. They claim that the policeman was confirmed dead by doctors after being taken to the hospital in a hurry.

The automobile that struck the officer and other bystanders was eventually impounded by the police, but the driver got away.
