ROTARACT provides A Drop of Hope – 1st July, 2013

“30 Clubs, 16+ Venues, 1 District Initiative – A Mega Blood Donation Drive”

Place: Mumbai Date: 28th June, 2013

1st July, 2013, the first day of a new Rotaract year (2013-14) starts off with a pan-Mumbai Blood Donation Drive, held by the Rotaract Clubs of Mumbai under the directions of the Mumbai District Council (RID – 3140). Blood Donation camps would be organized at over 16 different venues in Mumbai & Thane by the respective Rotaract Clubs and the donated blood would be collected by and sent to registered blood banks.

The young and vibrant Rotaractors of Mumbai will be organizing a Mega Blood Donation Drive on 1st July, 2013 between 10 am to 2pm with camps throughout Mumbai & Thane. Along with the blood donation activities, each donor would also be checked for Thalassemia, as a step towards Thalassemia awareness. This is Rotaract Mumbai’s unique way to celebrate World Doctor’s Day.

This drive would be managed by the Rotaract Mumbai (RID – 3140), led by PHF DRR Rtr. Manish Solanki, the District Rotaract Representative for the year 2013-14, and the camps would be organized by various Rotaract Clubs in their localities with the help of the registered Blood Banks. Trained Representatives and Doctors from the local blood banks would be conducting the actual donation process at these camps.

Thalassemia has been long ignored in India, especially Mumbai. The increase in reported cases of Thalassemia is alarming. However, not many are aware that Thalassemia can be avoided altogether at the time of child birth. A simple solution to this problem is awareness and the same forms a part of this Blood Donation Drive. Each donor shall be checked for Thalassemia and information regarding the same would be provided by the Rotaractors at the venues.

The Rotaract Mumbai requests each and every resident of Mumbai and Thane to participate in this mega drive. District Rotaract Representative Rtr Manish Solanki, said, “Many of our young Indians still have many pre-notions and myths on blood donation like I may lose blood after donation and may take ages to regain the count. However the truth is to give blood you need neither extra strength nor extra food, and you save a life. We at Rotaract District 3140 urge all those people who can donate blood to do so as this can help save lives. Only 5 minutes and 350ml blood is what you need to donate. To the young and healthy, it’s no loss. To sick, it’s hope of life. Donate Blood to give back life”.

This Drive is open to all and we encourage bringing along your friends and relatives for this noble cause. Donating blood is not only a feel good factor for the donor, but you might also be saving a life or helping someone in an emergency. An added bonus is the free Thalassemia screening for your personal healthy well-being.

Where Passion outdoes pain!

– Barely 5 weeks into the competition and Jhalak’s two main contestants injure themselves-

We weren’t kidding when we claimed that this season of Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa was going to get tougher and more difficult what with all the challenging twists the judges have been dishing out to the contestant’s this year. Barely five weeks into the show and for the first time ever we hear that two main and most hardworking contestants have severely injured themselves.

The two earthy beauties of Jhalak – Aarti Chhabria and Ekta Kaul who have proved their worth with consistent dedication and determination were severely injured this week.

Aarti has injured her ribs and could not use her upper body. So her performances were restricted to using only her hands and legs. But the brave heart, still made most of it and performed beautifully with the help of her choreographer.

The other contestant who was rendered helpless due to her injury was shy and tactiturn Ekta Kaul. Ekta had dislocated her shoulder and was seen with her entire shoulder in an arm sling due to which she too could not have many upper body movements.

Both the girls were almost in tears since they felt that the choreographers could not do anything due to their injuries but made the most of it still.

Well we need to now wait and watch if these two will be able to stand their ground and see themselves through, or will it be only survival of the fittest on Jhalak Dikhla Jaa?

To watch, tune in on this Saturday at 9 pm only on COLORS

YRF & Dibakar Banerjee Reboot

“Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!”

The mystery unfolds in cinemas worldwide on 12 Dec 2014

Friday, June 28, 2013: The co-production venture of YRF & Dibakar Banerjee Productions (DBP) announces its first directorial outing with Dibakar – “DETECTIVE BYOMKESH BAKSHY!”

“We are rebooting Byomkesh. Right back to his first ever case. We could have called this Byomkesh Begins. Everything else from now on will follow us!” says Dibakar, tongue in cheek. In a contemporary interpretation of war torn Calcutta during the 1940’s, the film follows the first adventure of Byomkesh, fresh out of college, as he pits himself against an evil genius who is out to destroy the world. “It’s his wits against the most villainous arch criminal the world has seen, in a world of murder, international political intrigue and seduction”

This is the first in a series that will feature Bengali bestseller writer Saradindu Banerjee’s most famous creation and India’s widest read and best known detective character for the first time in a Hindi feature.

“Sushant Singh Rajput has that dormant volcano thing about him that is just right for my Byomkesh.” Says Dibakar of his leading man, “He looks so quiet, so self-absorbed and withdrawn – till you challenge him. Then he explodes and becomes the most dangerous man in the world – at least for the criminals.”

The director and the lead are working hard to get the character, feel and the spectacle of the period thriller that starts shooting January 2014.

“DETECTIVE BYOMKESH BAKSHY!” releases 12th December 2014.

Arunoday’s item number

With Chamiya

What? Arunoday Singh’s item number? Is he really dancing in a film and that too an item number? Is this some kind of gossip because he does not want to dance in the films? During the shoot of the film Ek Bura Aadmi, we had a chance to talk with Arunoday Singh and when asked he says, “Dance is not my cup of tea and I am not made for the films which require me to dance in them.”

Looks like Arunoday is not sticking to his words. He is dancing in this film and that too in an item number!

Whatever it may be, the item song “Uchal gayi chamiya kavaro ke beech mein” from the film Ek Bura Aadmi is getting a tremendous response from the audience. It is sung by Runa Rizvi and the music is given by ‘Band of Bandagi’. The film Ek Bura Aadmi is directed by Ishraq.

The Smart Perimeter feature, created jointly by Intel and McAfee, solves challenges associated with multi-device growth1. The McAfee Mobile Innovations app is a free application that is available today in the Google Play marketplace https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mcafee.mmi&feature=search_result#?t=W10.

According to recent research2, 60% of US consumers own a smartphone and 39% own a tablet, and half of consumers say they would rather lose their purse or wallet than their smartphone. Despite that fact, a mere 20% of multiple device owners have security software on their smartphones and even fewer (13%) have security on their tablet.

“The McAfee Mobile Innovations app will help us to obtain users’ input on device and web security, as well as strengthen anti-theft and privacy measures to protect personal data,” said Lianne Caetano, director of consumer mobile product marketing at McAfee.

The suite of capabilities in McAfee Mobile Innovations app today addresses a variety of threats to users on mobile devices. Features include:

· Smart Perimeter – Prevents theft or loss of consumer devices by creating a perimeter that can enable devices to track each other and alerts the user immediately. By linking multiple devices together, users are alerted when they are separated by more than 30 feet via an alarm helping consumers to quickly identify and recover their devices.

· Safe QR Code Reader – Ensures QR codes are safe for browsing and alerts users of malicious codes at the point of scanning.

· Data Vault – PIN protects private photos, videos and documents from prying eyes, locally on devices (Note: The app user will be prompted to download McAfee Mobile Security — to use the data vault feature – no purchase is required).

The McAfee Mobile Innovations features are currently in public beta in English and will allow users to test and provide feedback via email or community forum to the McAfee Mobile Security team in order to shape and enhance future versions of the app.
