Bhopal shuts down for gas tragedy affected

New Delhi, Oct 11 (IANS): Ahead of the Hisar parliamentary bypoll Oct 13, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh Tuesday assured Anna Hazare on the proposed anti-graft Lokpal bill even as the Congress attacked the activist over his "links" with the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh. "As you know, we are committed to a strong Lokpal bill. And we hope that we will be successful in our endeavour in the near future," Manmohan Singh said in his letter to Hazare that was written on Monday but released Tuesday. In his letter, written in Hindi, the prime minister said that his government was working on an "exhaustive agenda to fight corruption and improve governance". "Our government is also considering several proposals regarding electoral reforms. Among the suggestions that are being considered is the right to reject which you have also mentioned," he added. Taking on Anna Hazare ahead of the Hisar parliamentary bypoll, however, Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh Tuesday

asked the activist to ponder over his association with "Congress opponents" and see who was benefitting from this. Team Anna hit back, saying their movement should not be held responsible if it benefits the opposition. In an open letter to Hazare, the Congress leader said: "You are surrounded by people opposed to the Congress ideology." "Be it Shanti Bhushan, his son Prashant or your associate Arvind Kejriwal... they have all been Congress opponents... are busy pursuing their political ends and are exploiting your clean image," Digvijay Singh said in his letter released to the media Tuesday. Kejriwal reacted by saying "our movement should not be held responsible if in any way it benefits the opposition". "We are fighting for systemic changes. We are not campaigning for anyone or asking voters to vote for a particular candidate. We are not responsible if opposition is benefited. It is the Congress which is responsible for this," Kejriwal told reporters in Hisar that goes to poll Thursday.

The bandh is supported by the Congress party and several trade union organizations.

Tribals are victims of state apathy, says Ramesh

New Delhi, Oct 11 (IANS) Calling for a two-track approach to deal with left-wing extremism, Rural Development Minister Jairam Ramesh said Tuesday that there was need to recognise tribals as victims of state apathy and Maoist agenda while dealing firmly with the ultras’ leadership. Delivering the Sardar Patel Memorial lecture here, Ramesh said called for expanded role of elected local representatives in the development activities in Maoist affected areas. “What is clear is that we need a two-track approach--one that deals with the leadership of the Naxals (Maoist), who wish to overthrow the Indian state and the other, which focuses on the concerns of the people they pretend/claim to serve. There is clearly a need to recognise tribal populations as victims--first of state apathy and discrimination and then of the Naxal agenda,” Ramesh said.

Unitech moves company law board against Telenor

New Delhi, Oct 11 (IANS): Unitech, the Indian partner of mobile services firm Telenor, Tuesday said it has filed a petition before the Company Law Board (CLB) to restrain the Norwegian firm from going ahead with a $1.7 billion rights issue, and accused it of mismanaging the telecom entity’s funds. Unitech said Telenor had refused to raise debt through other means even though the State Bank of India had agreed last November to give it long-term debt of about Rs.9,000 crore ($1.8 billion). The Indian firm also added that the mobile firm did not require fresh funds at this moment for its operations. Telenor, however, refuted these claims. “There was an unsuccessful attempt earlier to block the rights issue through a legal process that went up to the Supreme Court of India. As we

have done earlier, we will present the facts in this new legal initiative taken by Unitech Ltd.,” said a statement from Telenor. “The simple case here is that the Uninor board, having followed prescribed processes, has asked its owners to invest more in the company in the absence of bank loans. We continue to urge Unitech to join us in meeting this shared responsibility towards the company,” the Norwegian company added. Unitech’s managing director Sanjay Chandra is among the 14 people charged by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in the 2G spectrum and telecom licensing scandal. “Uninor has already emerged as the most successful new operator in India by far and Telenor Group will not allow any of this to disrupt its continued progress,” said Telenor.

Workers at the Manesar plant went on strike Friday demanding reinstatement of 44 suspended co-workers, who were not taken back after an earlier 33-day impasse with the management ended Oct 1. Of the 2,000 workers who went on strike on Oct 7 including all categories like regular, contractual, apprentices and trainees, 500 later chose not to continue. On Sunday, Maruti Suzuki had dismissed 10 workers, terminated five trainees and suspended 10 employees for having indulged in violence at the Manesar factory premises. “The labor problem at Maruti’s plant has severely impacted ancillary units and vendors which are supplying auto parts to the company,” said Gurgaon Udyog Association, president, Parveen Yadav.

India against corruption Travelling from Kanpur to Delhi after my Dussehra vacation, I had to wait for my train at Kanpur Central. I saw a train ticket examiner (TTE) checking tickets at the exit gates of the station. He didn’t check all the passengers, only picking them out at random. All of a sudden he came across someone who had a ticket for himself but didn't have one for his young son. The TTE scolded the man and talked about rules and regulations and then went on to tell him about the penalty for being caught without a ticket. Though sorry for the passenger, I felt happy that the TTE was doing his duty. That was until the passenger took out a 50 rupee note from his pocket and slipped it into the official’s hand and the matter was settled then and there. Finally on the train on my way to Delhi and I see yet another TTE receiving money for giving a seat to a passenger who was on waiting list, but hadn’t been confirmed. I don’t blame the officials alone for these petty crimes, but every citizen who engages in this corruption. This is an appeal to everyone to start fighting against this menace instead of succumbing to it.

Be Productive:

Start Your Day Early

Want to be productive at work? Then start your day early. You are probably thinking, “I do not have enough rest, how can I afford to wake up early?” I had the same thoughts before. After a while you will realize you cannot be productive unless you rise early. Time is finite. Each of us has only 24 hours. Each of us has finite energy. How well you balance both will be how productive you can be, at work or at home.

1. Rest Early, Rise Early

You want to be productive? Rise early, read more books, have more energy, be more focused and set standards for others to catch up. It’s as simple as that.

2. Limit Internet Use

The other big distraction that can make you sleep late is the internet. Probably because you will be checking your emails, updating your blog, Facebook, watching Youtube, etc. Try limiting the use of it at home, or switch it to the morning session. Nowadays, I check all my personal emails early in the morning. When I get into work, I find myself less tempted to check personal emails and such.

3. Know Your Priorities

Really, it is all about the choice you make and the priorities you have. If you know it is competitive out there in the corporate world, how can you be a better worker than the person who is also aiming for the position above you? How can you do more whether to impress or to get the relevant person’s attention?

I have 3 young kids and my own business to run. Trying to balance how much work I put into my business, how much time I spend with my family and yet have time for my hobbies is all about how I can be productive with my time. You want to be productive at work or at home? Here's what you should do.

4. Is It Always Fun, Fun, Fun? People who oppose to rising early typically have these excuses. I need personal time. I need to catch up with my friends; I need to know what is going on in the world. But really, most of these are just excuses for having some fun. Not that there is anything wrong with it. I am not saying giving it up. I am saying, there is a proper time and place for everything. Each activity has a price tag on it. Do one and you can’t do the other. The choice is yours. Whether it is catching up with friends till late night or falling behind in your work.

5. Cut Off Television

I used to tell myself, I need the break. So, when the kids sleep I turn on the cable and watch whatever programs that catches my fancy. Often, I find myself not watching, just channel surfing. And I don't end up watching a full program. I decided one day to just give up on TV as it makes me sleep late and wake up tired. If you want to be productive, cut off TV. You are better off reading a book. Without TV, I have managed to finish many books which I have bought but never read.

Roadside signs take time to become clear. We see them in the far off distance as we’re driving. We know they provide an important, helpful message but must wait until we’re able to seize the brief opportunity to read it. What you believe now to be a warning sign in the distance will soon prove to be a helpful beacon that you’ll be very glad of.

You have a right to change your mind. Information that may have come to light in could result in a change of tactics or tweak to a plan but don’t see this as a setback now. As tempting as it may even be to throw in the proverbial towel, you have a chance to set something straight or put it back on track. This will require change and adjustment but bring optimism where it’s currently lacking.

How much do you wish to reveal? Ah, perhaps I’d better rephrase that. What is - or isn’t - someone else’s business? To what extent are you obliged to divulge certain information or explain yourself? You appear to be attracting interest or attention in ways you might not prefer. Someone wants to know more, but do they have the right to demand to know as much they feel you’re obliged to provide? The answer is, they don’t.

Sept. 23 - Oct. 22 Something in your world is moving up a notch. It is being taken to a new and probably unexplored level. How do you feel about this? Do you feel scared? Intimidated? Wherever this change is occurring, you’ve had warning signs for some time but perhaps the word ‘warning’ implies you have reason to anticipate risk or danger. You needn’t be concerned that you might fail or struggle. You really are in safe hands now, in more ways than one.

Just for now, leave all your hopelessness aside!

A moment of patience can ward off a complete disaster yet there can be nothing more destructive sometimes than a moment of impatience. Something is coming to you as quickly as it can. It cannot arrive as quickly as you both wish it would because of universal protocols and a space that has yet to be created for its arrival. Your job, for now, is to curb your impatience in the knowledge that something or someone really will have been waiting for.

We are all entitled to have an opinion. We’re equally entitled to believe whatever we choose to believe. Others, however, believe they’re entitled to inform us we’re wrong or misguided. Where does this perceived right come from? Are such people trying to be helpful…or might they be trying to provoke a defensive response from you? From where I’m sitting, it does appear to be the latter. Try not to rise to bait being set.

Pluto, the planet of transformation, has been dormant in the area of your chart associated with commitment since April. Today, it starts moving forward again. Recent months have seen you in a state of preparation and assessment where your commitment to someone, or possibly an organization, is concerned and it’s here that something has been rebuilt or restructured. You will soon be very aware of how much stronger and knowledgeable you are through it doing so.

Oscar Wilde once said ‘nothing is more aggravating than calmness’. Most living things on this planet need, and often thrive, on routine. We know where we stand with what is predictable. We feel comfortable where there’s monotony. However, somewhere in your world, a certain ongoing process has become unimaginative, restrictive and tedious. A tiny bit of chaos will bring much needed excitement and optimism to an area it’s needed within.

‘Now that we found love, what are we going to do with it?’ So sang Jamaican rapper Heavy D many years ago. An opportunity to re-commence dialogue with a certain person will soon present itself. You can embark upon a strong, loving relationship with someone now, despite your reasons for being hesitant or cautious. Taking things slowly and rebuilding trust will do much to bring you and someone together, if that is what you both want.

Capricorn

The sky speaks clearly of a perceived need on your part to please several people. You seem willing to go to extraordinary lengths to ensure their comfort, happiness and security. Whilst there’s nothing wrong with this per se, you might be taking a harsh and unfair view of how obliged you really are to appease certain people. They might not actually be expecting as much as you seem willing to give.

What isn’t making sense? Who isn’t making sense? Why are you grappling with annoying, senseless issues now? Why is that – ok, enough questions. I suspect you’re creating quite a list yourself where demands on your patience are concerned. What isn’t making sense will become clearer soon. An opportunity to for you to provide the ‘voice of reason’ where a sensitive matter is concerned is coming.

What about you? Has an unseen, supreme force deliberately overlooked you when distributing happiness and luck? It might be easy to look around your world and believe that others are benefiting from fortuitous situations whilst you are made to keep your nose to a tedious grindstone. Very shortly, you will have something to smile about. This will then become something to be extremely glad for.

It’s finally your time to shine!

City Palace

The Lakes of Udaipur

Saheliyon ki Bari

The City Palace is the largest of its kind in Rajasthan and consists of a dazzling combination of palaces, pavilions, terraces, courtyards, hanging gardens and more, all splendidly ornamented- many of the chambers embellished with art inspired by the Mughal style of decoration. A large portion of the City Palace is today a museum, home to a fine collection of art and artefacts related to the royal family of Udaipur.

Udaipur is known to many as the `City of Lakes’, and its lakes are truly beautiful- a welcome and very refreshing change from the arid sands of the rest of Rajasthan. The main lake of Udaipur is Lake Pichola, which is fringed by bathing ghats, temples, havelies, gardens and palaces. On Lake Pichola are two islands- Jag Mandir and Jag Niwas- both of which can be visited as part of a boat ride across the shimmering waters of the lake. Boats depart at regular intervals from Bansi Ghat (also known as the City Palace Jetty). Udaipur’s two other lakes are Fateh Sagar and Udai Sagar. The latter is an artificial lake, created in 1678 by Maharana Fateh Singh; in the centre of the lake lies a picturesque garden island known as Nehru Park.

Literally the `Garden of the Maids of Honour’, the Saheliyon ki Bari is the foremost of Udaipur’s many beautiful gardens. It is a modest sized but pretty ornamental garden with five fountains, four pools of water and a series of elegantly carved pavilions, and ornate elephants. Named for the royal ladies, who came here for a stroll and a change of atmosphere, the garden is even today a beautifully quiet and relaxing place to wander around in, to relax or to take photographs of lotus pools and pavilions.

Jagdish Mandir

Constructed in 1651 by Maharana Jagat Singh, the Jagdish Mandir lies in close proximity to the main entrance of the City Palace. The largest temple in Udaipur, the Jagdish Mandir enshrines a black stone statue of Lord Vishnu, known here as Jagannath, the lord of the universe. The temple’s exterior is of polished local stone, its main entrance being through a series of steps leading up between two large statues of caparisoned elephants crafted from white marble. The Jagdish Mandir’s most outstanding feature is its beautiful ornamentation- its walls are decorated with delicate carvings that have been likened to those of the famous temples at Khajuraho.

UDAIPUR Udaipur, the `City of Dawn’ seems many worlds away from the golden sand dunes and desert land that epitomise Rajasthan. A city of shimmering lakes, of elegant palaces built of white marble, of flowerfilled gardens and gurgling fountains and of a tradition of regal living that takes some beating: Udaipur is exquisite, alluring and very easy to fall in love with. There is much to see and do round Udaipur.

Travel Folio: Best time Udaipur is best visited in the months between October and March as this is when the weather is conducive for sightseeing forays.

Shop

Traditional handicrafts, block printed textiles, embroidered bags and silver jewellery is what Udaipur is known for. The main shopping area runs from City Palace to Jagdish Temple Street and to the Clock Tower. For beaded bags and jewellery head to Chandpole Road and if you are looking for basic handicrafts try the Govt run Rajasthali.

Eat

Dal Batti Choorma, Gatte ki Sabzi and Lal Maas are the must-eats in Udaipur. For vegetarian fare stop by at the Jaiwana Rooftop Restaurant and for authentic Rajasthani cuisine try Ambrai at Hanuman Ghat.

Get there Direct flights from Delhi and Mumbai operate to

Udaipur. Train connections from the metro cities are limited, but there is an overnight train from Jaipur. It is also very convenient to drive or take a bus to Udaipur from anywhere within Rajasthan.

Stay There are a number of mid-priced heritage hotels

–some palaces converted into hotels and they recreate the grandeur of the days of the maharaja. For a truly luxurious stay there is the famed Lake Palace or Oberoi Udai Vilas.

Jag Mandir

Also known as the Lake Garden Palace, Jag Mandir stands on an island in Lake Pichola, surrounded by a vast courtyard paved with tiles of black and white stone, adjoining which is the Garden Courtyard, an expanse of elegantly landscaped rose gardens around which are scattered flowering trees and carefully maintained flowerbeds. The Gul Mahal building was where the Mughal the emperor Shahjahan stayed with his family while in rebellion against his father Jahangir. Other than the Gul Mahal, the most striking feature of Jag Mandir are eight almost life-size statues of elephants carved from white marble, which stand as if guarding the main boat ramp and entrance.

The Pichhwai paintings of Nathdwara

48 km north of Udaipur lies the village of Nathdwara, famous for its temple to Lord Krishna, a shrine that is much revered by the many thousands of devotees who visit it each year. But the Shrinathji Temple is not Nathdwara’s only claim to fame; this otherwise obscure village is also home to one of Rajasthan’s most beautiful forms of art, that of pichhwai painting. Pichhwai is inextricably tied up with the village’s guardian deity, for this form of art always depicts Krishna himself, in his different forms and moods. Pichhwai paintings are cloth paintings- vividly coloured, with bold lines and intricate details. They were traditionally used only to be hung on temple walls, as a backdrop for the idol enshrined at the temple; with changing times, however, smaller versions of pichhwai are also being created for homes. Paintings are readily available in both Nathdwara as well as in Udaipur itself, and for those who would like to buy one, here’s a tip: remember that a genuine pichhwai always features a cow in the picture!

ss Let’s get down to busine

erns Patterns, Patteverywhere! There are

various patterned scarves that are available; however you should only keep one or two of these types as they could restrict your choice of clothing. Wearing a patterned or embroidered scarf with printed clothes may end up looking a little tacky. It can be a pretty difficult task to pull off both together, so make sure the statement you’re making is either the scarf or the top. A plain shirt with a printed scarf or vice-versa will make all the difference. So don’t make it so busy!

For a business related event, silk scarves are the way to go. Team up a formal dress with a pretty green or pink scarf (depending on what color your dress is!) and it will make you look formal as well as sassy. Don’t be afraid of going in for wild colors like Purple, orange and fuchsia as they will liven up your entire look.

What to look for When you are buying a scarf, make sure that you can see yourself wearing it with at least two outfits, single colored scarves look good with prints and multicolored scarves look good with plains. If you’re going in for a designer brand like Louis Vuitton or Burberry then pick one with vibrant colors that you can match with several outfits. If you want to make some jaws drop then go in for a scarf that matches your skin tone, hair or eye color.

It’s a wrap!

A look at why scarves are a must-have! Scarves are the must-have stylish fashion ornament for the fall and winter seasons. They are usually wrapped around the neck so they’re the perfect fit for your wardrobe! Not only will they keep you warm and snug, they will also ooze style.

Beware the Beady eyed Beaded scarves tend to use a variety of materials like plastic, metallic and glass. Patterns are created using these beads to make a beautiful and classy scarf. While it may look amazing, you will have to treat it with utmost care. If you don’t, then all it takes is for one to slip and the rest will follow.

The Cla ssic Loo k Men might be more interested in plain plaid or woolen scarves with mild colors and nothing too jarring. Wearing a scarf with a formal to wear t-shirt is fast becoming a trend among men these days.

Which way is the best way? While dressing, decide the ways you can wear the scarf, wearing the same scarf in different ways will give an effective get up. The texture of the scarf also makes a difference while you wrap it around your neck, so bear that in mind before you make your purchase. One of the ways would be to wear it like a tie around your neck with one (or both) ends hanging down the front. Another way is to wrap the scarf a couple times around your neck and tie their ends into a knot on either side. Or you could even use the scarf like a bandana or a head band to keep the hair off your face. Whichever way makes you feel most comfortable and confident is the one to choose!

Pictures are very effective. If you want your career to take off, if would be appropriate to hang pictures or posters that feature a balloon rising in the air , or a flock of birds flying or even a aircraft or a rocket speeding up.

Hanging a mirror in the east or south – east of your home will generate more uplifting and positive chi energy, which is helpful for improving your job prospects .

PHF president Qasim Zia said on Tuesday that PHF was trying its best to resurrect bilateral hockey ties between the two countries in a bid to uplift standard of hockey in the region.

Zia also said the federation was planning to start indoor hockey from next year so that the players could practice during the off season. He said hockey in Pakistan was on the right track and it would soon regain its lost status. On the inclusion of senior players in the team for the London Olympics, Zia said ample opportunities would be given to every player to get into the team irrespective of the age.

Majeed called his Indian contact on the morning of August 21 last year, the final day of the Oval Test, in the presence of Mahmood, the Daily Mail reported. He allegedly claimed it was "not a problem" to fix the match result and referred to the number of players working with him, saying: "Boss, you know how many I've got; you know that they do it." After the call, Majeed told the journalist: "There's big, big money in results, I tell you, you can see that." However, Pakistan had beaten England by four wickets to secure a memorable Test victory at the Oval in south London that day.

New Delhi, Oct 11 (IANS): Harbhajan Singh and Yuvraj Singh have rubbished the claims of Pakistani cricket agent Mazhar Majeed, who is being tried for spot-fixing charges at a London court, that he had access to these two Indian cricketers. The tape of Majeed bragging to the undercover reporter, Mazhar Mahmood of the now defunct tabloid News of the World, was played in the London court where he said he "had access to Harbhajan and Yuvraj".

The tape was played during the fourth day of the trial of former Pakistan captain Salman Butt and pacer Mohammad Asif, who are alleged to have bowled predetermined no-balls for cash. Both Harbhajan and Yuvraj denied knowing Majeed. "Who is he (Majeed)? Such remarks are nothing but rubbish. We will bring to the notice of the BCCI, who will take necessary course of action against this fellow," Harbhajan said from Nagpur, where he is play-

ing in the Challenge series. Yuvraj echoed similar sentiments. Majeed told Mahmood that he had several Pakistan players under his control, including Salman Butt, brothers Kamran and Umar Akmal, and Shoaib Malik and "had access" to other star cricketers like Chris Gayle, Brett Lee, and Ricky Ponting. He also accused the Australian players of being the "biggest" matchfixers in the world cricket. Cricket Australia dismissed the claims as "outlandish".

ICC goes along with Indian board, DRS is not mandatory Dubai, Oct 11 (IANS): The International Cricket Council (ICC) has decided to do away with the mandatory use of the Umpires Decision Review System (DRS) and has gone back to the position existing before June, that is to leave it to the boards involved in a series. The ICC Executive Board, at its meeting here on Monday, also approved the new qualification system to fill the places from the Associates and Affiliates for the 2015 World Cup to be played in Australia-New Zealand. Among other key decisions taken at the meeting, presided over by its president Sharad Pawar, the ICC

has agreed to make the findings of the independent governance review panel public, and it is also in favor of a Test Championship in 2013. As for replacing the Champions Trophy, the ICC said it realizes the significant commercial challenge. "It clarified that without the support and consent of the ICC's broadcast partner, ESPN Star Sports, the financial implications on the Members and the development of the game would be significant." On the DRS, the Board reversed the decision it took at the annual conference in Hong Kong in June when it came to an agreement with the member boards on the use of

technology. The Hot Spot was made mandatory subject to availability, but the use of ball-tracking was left to the playing boards to decide. The ICC has been forced to fall in line with the Indian Board's view after the technology goof-ups during India's tour of England in the summer. The Indian Board was highly critical of the Hot Spot which was responsible for Rahul Dravid being given out more than once wrongly. However, the DRS would still be used in all ICC global events and the Board stated that it supports the use of technology and would continue to work on its development.


Yuki Bhambri

New Delhi, Oct 11 (IANS): Rutuja Bhosale produced a power-packed performance to shock top-seed Prerna Bhambri 6-2, 4-6, 7-5 and enter the second round of Fenesta National Tennis Championship at the DLTA complex on Tuesday. The 15-year-old Pune girl dished out stunning angles and fluent ground strokes to get past Prerna, to whom she had lost in straight sets in their first meeting at the same venue

in June. She, however, was a transformed player this day and matched Prerna stroke by stroke to go up a set. The 18-year-old Prerna, however, stepped up her game in the second and soon it was a set all. The Delhi girl was then quick to move up 3-1 in the decider before being broken back. A stream of errors allowed Rutuja to inflict another break in the ninth game, only to drop her serve immediately, when she was serving for the match. A beaming Rutuja, who is coached by former Davis Cupper and Arjuna Awardee Sandip Kirtane at Pune's Deccan Gymkhana, admitted working on her game after losing to Prerna in the quarterfinals of ITF women's tournament in June. Prerna's cousin Yuki, however had to face no such hiccups and breezed into the men's singles second round with a 6-1, 6-1 victory over Vivek Shokeen. Second-seeded Yuki, who is returning from a knee injury, said he is fit and raring to do well at the tournament. In the other men's singles matches, top seed Vishnu Vardhan had to dig deep to overcome 1999 champion Sunil Sipaeya 7-6(3), 6-3. He next plays qualifier Ronak Manuja. In the women's singles first round, veteran Rushmi Chakravarty hardly broke sweat in dismissing Delhi girl Vaniya Dangwal 6-1, 6-0. Comeback girl Isha Lakhani too had it easy as she packed off Aishwarya Aggarwal 6-0, 6-1.

AIFF general-secretary Kushal Das called it a step in the right direction. "It is fantastic that AIFF has given me the chance to use my year-long expertise in India. With its dazzling 1.2 billion people, rich history and culture India is a sleeping giant," Baam said.

London, Oct 11 (IANS): Kate Moss thinks her daughter Lila Grace is prudish when it comes to make-up. The 37-year-old supermodel feels her nine-year-old daughter tells her to remove make-up as she prefers to see a freshfaced, natural mummy, reports femalefirst.co.uk. "I always take my make-up off, because otherwise my daughter will come in and say, 'Mummy, tut-tut'. She doesn't like it. She likes the freshfaced, natural mummy, when I've got my hair in a bun and no make-up on," she said. "Lila is quite prudish. She'll only wear a little bit of lip gloss or something. But she is into nail art. I think Lila is beautiful; she's so innocent and has that fresh face. She's gorgeous, but obviously she is my daughter," she added.

London, Oct 11 (IANS): Emma Watson's former boyfriend Francis Boulle ended their relationship as he thought she was too famous. The "Harry Potter" actress briefly dated Boulle, who now stars in British reality TV show "Made In Chelsea". The actor said he called time on the romance because he didn't want to just be known as someone else's boyfriend. "We had a bit of a thing a while back but I have always been an ambitious person and I want to achieve my own notoriety for what I've done," Boulle told Heat magazine. "That's why I chose not to pursue it any longer, because I didn't want to be the boyfriend of some child actress," he added.

Brad Pitt's movie set raided

Budapest, Oct 11 (IANS): The Hungarian police raided the set of Brad Pitt's upcoming zombie movie "World War Z" and seized 85 weapons from a warehouse. According to the police personnel, the seizure included automatic weapons such as AK-47s and sniper rifles equipped with live ammunition. "The 85 weapons were seized in Budapest at a warehouse because they were not fully inoperable as they were supposed to be," people.com quoted Hungarian authorities as saying.

London, Oct 10 (IANS): Actress Emma Stone, who is reportedly dating her "Spider-Man" co-star Andrew Garfield, says she would never bare all for a movie because her father would "kill" her if she displayed skin. "My dad would kill me if I posed naked. He wouldn't speak to me again and I really love my dad, so that's always something that makes me a little nervous," contactmuisc.com quoted her as saying. Despite their reservations about nudity in films, Emma admits her parents always encouraged her to fulfill her dreams. "They are the coolest parents in the world. They taught us responsibility and the need to own up to our actions and that honesty really is the only policy." "My parents always made me feel as though I could do anything - not in a cheerleading, 'You're the greatest!' kind of way; it was more, 'You're going to have to work hard, but we'll support you however we can'. Just to have that kind of backing was incredible," she said.

Gary Barlow hates holidays

London, Oct 11 (IANS): Singer Gary Barlow says he hates taking time off from his career. The 40-year-old singer, who has three children -- 11-yearold Daniel, eight-year-old Emily and two-year-old Daisy -- with wife Dawn, hates having nothing to do, reports contactmusic.com.

Maker and my parents for giving me that. Beyond that I find it unworthy of biographical documentation." Asked whether he had any unfulfilled desires or anything that he would like to do, he said: “I hope there are unfulfilled desires within me but to say what they shall be is difficult to put a finger on. I can tell you what is important for me today, not what has been important for me in this past year. That I shall not be able to remember. And that is how I would like it to be.�And what did the actor wish on his birthday? "I wish another day to pass in peace! One of the best ways to bring in birthdays is to be working at what you need to be working on ... I work because I need to ... love !!" he wrote on his Twitter page.

Mumbai, Oct 11 (IANS): Amitabh Bachchan, who turned 69 on Tuesday and is the busiest entertainer in the country, says there are still many things that cross his mind which he feels he should be doing. "There are many things that cross my mind which I feel I should also be doing. Someday perhaps I shall find time for them too," Amitabh told IANS in an interview. Asked whether the excitement of becoming a grandfather has sunk in yet, he quipped: "Yes, long ago." Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan are expecting their first child soon. The megastar also said he finds his life unworthy of biographical documentation by him. "My life has been blessed and I am ever grateful to the

person. I'm awful on holiday. It comes from having that period where I didn't work. That really was the worst bit," he told Observer magazine. "It wasn't not being famous any more or even not being a recording artist. It was having nobody who needed me, no phones ringing, nothing to do. Because I'm still too young to do nothing," he added.
