Track Nation Next on Social Media


Nagpur, get ready to experience some musical magic with ‘The Music Story!’

With Nation Next as the media partner, The Music Story Season 1 is all set to kick start at Gondwana Club, on February 10, 2017, 7 pm onwards.

Last year has been a musical year and a year of live concerts for Nagpurians. From Farhan Akhtar to Nucleya, from Kailash Kher to Shankar Mahadevan, Nagpurians relished music in 2016 and welcomed all music genres with open arms. This year, 2017, seems to be starting on a musical note for Nagpurians as well as the first season of ? The Music Story ? a series of musical performances properly planned throughout the year is all set to kick start. With Nation Next as their media partner, the first episode of The Music Story Season 1 will be held on February 10, 2017 at Gondwana Club, Nagpur from 7 pm onwards. The Music Story has been conceptualized by Radiant Brand and Solutions India Private Limited spearheaded by well-known Nagpur event planner Abhishek Thakur. The artists at The Music Story are being managed by I Mojo Entertainment spearheaded by Ashutosh Mohta.

The first ever episode of The Music Story will see Delhi based band ? Vyatha ? perform live in Nagpur. City artist Ishan Khan will open the act for Vyatha and will be mainly singing popular Bollywood numbers. When Vyatha takes over, it will play self-composed music and popular Indian music with a twist in multiple genres like alternative, Indi rock, Himalayan folk music and progressive music. Speaking to Nation Next, Zibran Khan, Director of Production at Radiant, who in Nagpur has handled the production of big shows like Bacardi NH7 Weekender, Papons live concert, Indian Ocean’s live concert and the music festival Incarnation in the past, said, Getting bands like Vyatha to Nagpur who compose original music and present the already composed music in their own unique way is a well-planned experiment. Ashutosh and I have been working on this project since the last eight months. It was after a lot of discussion that we decided to give Nagpur the kind of music we’re going to bring and the music they rightfully deserve as Nagpurians want to listen to different kind of music. With The Music Story, we intend to give people in the age bracket of 18-60 something new.

Speaking further about The Music Story, Ashutosh said, During the entire season (12 months) of The Music Story, we are going to bring in eight artists/bands from around India, who are well settled in their own zone and are happily making their own music. Each of them has a different style of music and so Nagpur will be experiencing a blend of music from different places. Talking about the USP of The Music Story, Ashutosh added, The Music Story is going to be an interactive musical session between the artists and the audience. For The Music Story, we have crafted a custom made stage, which will be an attraction during the show. We wish to take our venture to different places in Nagpur in the future. The reason why we are starting with Gondwana Club is that a lot of club members who are co-incidentally music lovers visit the club at least thrice or four times a week. So, we have a ready available audience base. We have sent invites to around 400 members and we are expecting a turnout of at least 300 people for the first episode. To conclude the first season, we are even planning a grand finale. Also, apart from giving Nagpurians original music, through The Music Story, we wish to create a platform for local talent. Nagpur has a lot of talented musicians and we would definitely love to give them a chance to regale the audience with their self-composed music.

Virat Kohli complains of losing his unboxed phone in Nagpur




Radhika Dhawad | Nagpur

Former Indian skipper Virat Kohli took to twitter to inform netizens that he had lost his brand new unboxed phone in Nagpur on Tuesday.

Kohli, who is in the city for first test match against Australia on Thursday,  said, “Nothing beats the sad feeling of losing your new phone without even unboxing it  Has anyone seen it?”

Food delivery app Zomato was quick to respond by asking the ace cricketer to ‘feel free to order an ice cream from his wife and actor Anushka Sharma’s phone.’ 

The tweet read, “feel free to order ice cream from bhabhi’s phone if that will help.” However, many users anticipated Kohli’s tweet to be an advertisement for a brand.

Bombay High Court rejected stay plea filed by CBI paving way for the release of ex-Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh.

Ex-Home Ministe Anil Deshmukh on Monday was granted permission to travel outside Mumbai for four weeks by a special court on Monday.

Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader and former Home Minister of Maharashtra Anil Deshmukh on Monday was granted permission to travel outside Mumbai for four weeks by a special court on Monday. Deshmukh had sought permission to visit his constituency, which is also his hometown, Nagpur. 

The application was filed by Deshmukh through his lawyer, Inderpal Singh, stating that he is a native of Nagpur with deep family roots in the city apart from being an elected representative of his constituency. 

“The applicant craves a benevolent indulgence of this court to permit him to travel outside Greater Mumbai, including District Nagpur, for a limited duration of about four weeks so as to maintain continuity in his social and family ties and also visit his original and permanent home/constituency,” the plea stated.

The plea further added that “the applicant needs to have due legal consultation with his lawyers in New Delhi for further course of strategy in the present and connected cases.”

Interesting facts you didn’t know about Union Budget | Must Read




Radhika Dhawad | Bombuflat


Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman presented Union Budget when she presented financial statements and tax proposals for fiscal year 2023-24.

Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman presented her fifth straight Union Budget when she presented financial statements and tax proposals for fiscal year 2023-24.

Here are some lesser known facts about Union Budget…

The British government presented India’s first ever Union Budget on April 7, 1860.

The first budget of independent India was presented by country’s first Finance Minister RK Shanmukham Chetty on November 26, 1947.

Even though traditionally, the finance ministers present the budget, Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi are the only Prime Ministers to have presented the Union Budget instead of Finance Ministers.

Until 1955, the Union Budget was presented in English. However, the Congress government then decided to print the Budget papers in both Hindi and English.

In 2019, Sitharaman became the second woman to table the budget after Indira Gandhi who presented the budget for the year 1970-71.

Earlier, the government tabled the rail budget separately for 92 years but since 2017, the rail budget was merged with the Union Budget.

Until 1999, the government tabled the Union Budget at 5 pm on the last working day of February as per British era practice but 

former Finance Minister Yashwant Sinha changed the timing to 11 am. Years after, late Finance Minister Arun Jaitely changed the budget presentation to February 1. 

There’s a customary event called the ‘halwa ceremony’ that is held every year ahead of the Union Budget. It is considered as a gesture of appreciation for all people who have worked on the Union Budget. 

To ensure the secrecy of the budget document, a lock-in process is followed – in which all the officials involved 

in preparing the Budget come out of Parliament’s North Block only after the Finance Minister has presented the budget.

In 2021, Sitharaman became the first to table paperless Union Budget.

Former Prime Minister Moraraji Desai holds the record of presenting 10 budgets as finance minister, which is the maximum so far.
