US-born Rockstar girl and model Nargis Fakhri loves jewellery and Bollywood dance. TWF correspondent Sreya Basu chats up with the actor at the launch of The Gaja Store in Mumbai

You have taken up quite a few modeling assignments. What about films after Rockstar?

Yes, I am doing a lot of events, brands and magazines. I have been reading a lot of scripts and I have taken my time. And now I feel I have found what I love doing (and that is, acting) …so everything is coming along. I believe in patience. Whatever comes my way, if I want to do it, I will do it. If I don...

Assam: Troubling Remnants 16/07/2012
On June 23, 2012, Security Forces (SFs) killed four militants, including three Dimasa National Revolutionary Front (DNRF) and one Nationalist Socialist Council of Nagaland-Isak Muivah (NSCN-IM) cadres, in an encounter at Milubra village, 16 kilometers from Lungting in north of the Dima Hasao District and 51 kilometers from its administrative headquarters, Haflong. A cache of arms, including four AK-47 rifles, 236 rounds of ammunition and two Chinese grenades; mobile handsets and a number of NSCN-IM receipt books meant for extortion were recovered. SFs also arrested one NSCN-IM militant following the encounter.


The incident occurred after the Seven Sister’s Post reported, on June 22, that the Police, based on concrete reports of NSCN-IM activities in Dima Hasao, had registered a case and started an operation to flush out the militants. Significantly, the last major incident (involving three or more fatalities) in the District took place on February 15, 2011, when the Dimasa National Democratic Front (DNDF) 'commander-in-chief', Bihari Dimasa, and another two militants of the group, were killed in an encounter with the SFs.

NSCN-IM & NSCN-Khaplang (NSCN-K) appear to be attempting to revive the insurgency in the District, following the decimation of smaller groups, as well as the engagement of larger Dimasa formations in peace talks. The NSCN-IM was known to supply of arms and ammunition a...

As of date Madhya Pradesh had 9 % excess of rainfall. Some pockets of the state are extremely wet, have been flooded and few are still dry, wanting rains.


Media normally covers stories of people who get affected by both situation but somewhere children get missed out. But what do they think?

Gender discrimination in Madhya Pradesh 26/08/2012
Gender discrimination does happen; adolescent girls of Bhind speak out. Anil Gulati reports from Madhya Pradesh

"I want to study, apply for my ‘inter exams’. But for my father, he says he cannot afford my examination fees." But it is more to it, she fumbles a bit and then adds in her fast tone, "He says that if I study more, get educated, he would have to 'fetch' educated bridegroom, for me, and would have to pay higher bride price for it. He says our family cannot afford the same."

These are the words of an adolescent girl Rakhi (name changed), while she shares her concern, tears roll down her face. A bubbly face which had all the smiles in this world suddenly turns pale.

Rakhi is part of 35 girls who were a part of a project titled as Udaan being implemented by Department of women and Child Development with support from UNICEF in Gohad Block of Bhind district of Madhya Pradesh. <...

Computers: An Afterschool Necessity for Many Young Students 12/09/2014
Shopping for school supplies isn’t what it used to be. Sure, kids still need notebooks, binders and pens — but they won’t survive without the latest technology either, namely a computer.

According to a recent survey commissioned by HP and conducted by Wakefield Research, computers become a significant part of homework assignments for children as young as 10 years old and students aged 6 to 17 spend at least three hours a day on devices with Internet access. However, that much computer use at such a young age raises some concerns among parents.


"If your child is about t...
