News / Mid-Day/ Entertainment  
It is 12 years since the 26/11 Mumbai attacks, and the tragic chapter in modern Indian history continues to linger on the canvas of showbiz. On November 26, 2008, ten Pakistani terrorists of Lashkar-e-Tayyiba sneaked into Mumbai through the sea route, and unleashed havoc in various parts of the city. They killed over 160 people. Over the course of their attack, nine terrorists were killed while one, Mohammed Ajmal Kasab, was arrested and finally executed in November 2012. The terrorists unleashed mass mayhem at city hubs such as Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus railway station, Taj Mahal Palace hotel, Cafe Leopold, Cama and Albless Hospital, Nariman House, and Oberoi-Trident Hotel. Over a decade has passed, but the incident continues inspiring filmmakers to look back at the horrid incident and attempt recreating the event from different perspectives. From the valour of the brave who fought terror, to the grief of the people who lost loved ones, to the security loopholes, to probing the ter..

Following the Enforcement Directorate's (ED) raids on Tuesday at the residence and offices of Thane's Shiv Sena legislator Pratap Sarnaik, the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) has accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of misusing Central agencies against political opponents. The ruling alliance said the Centre's pressure tactics would not impact the state government's stability.

Despite efforts by law enforcement agencies to crack down on the drug nexus in the city, peddlers seem to be undeterred as rave parties are on the rise. According to the Crime Branch, organisers lure people through anonymous profiles on Instagram and disclose the venue and timings of the parties at the last moment to dodge the cops." Sleuths of the cyber cell and Mumbai police are keeping a close watch on social media and also on the areas where such parties are likely to be held around New Year and Christmas because even if a single attendee turns out to be COVID positive, it would lead to a major spread of the virus. 'Easy to convince' A senior crime branch officer said, "Since all the hotels and restaurants were shut over the past couple of months, they have incurred heavy losses. So, it must be very easy for the organisers to convince the owners to allow such parties at their properties at low cost."

Even as Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray okayed a R1,600 crore desalination project proposed by Municipal Commissioner Iqbal Singh Chahal, former sanctioned projects of the BMC are gathering dust. These projects were introduced by Chahal's predecessors as part of their vision for the city. The desalination plant which is to come up at Manori, was okayed during Chahal's meeting with Thackeray on Monday. The project could provide 200 mld (million litres per day) water daily. The CM thinks it will solve water scarcity in summer. The city gets 3,800 mld water daily and around 20 per cent is lost due to leakages. This is not the first time the corporation has considered a desalination project — an earlier one was rejected due to high costs.

"I considered exercising a tedious task"... "When I was young, I would often say that I disliked my body, and wanted to change it." Assorted statements extracted from our interaction with Sonakshi Sinha may, at first, be reminiscent of the kind of conversations women usually have with themselves. It is only fitting, given that Sinha — not your quintessential Bollywood actress with a petite frame — is challenged with the same weight-related concerns that bother the majority. She must train to stay in shape, even though she is "not a fitness person", and needs to be mindful of her diet, an ability that "is a real task, even today".

Yes, the girls made the first move. Which is the surest sign of gender equality. Something you couldn't otherwise gauge about the place of women, under an Islamic/Iranian government, that actively employs special moral-police forces outside malls, etc, to mind women's dresses, and intermingling of sexes. How do Tehranis negotiate love now? Haven't been back since. But even in 2008, Iran had the world's second-highest number of bloggers, despite an Internet connection slower than Indian dial-up of the '90s.
