There’s Curry – And There’s M&S Curry: Indian Food Writers’ Outrage at Meal Kits

first_imgWhen Marks & Spencer introduced Indian ready meals to British supermarkets in 1981, few might have predicted that the pioneers of mass-market tikka masala would one day be called out for creating dishes “bastardised to the point that they are unrecognisable”. Yet the Indian food writer Mallika Basu, author of Indian Cooking for Modern Living, says M&S’s curry kits are “at best upsetting, and at worst, offensive and callous”.Read it at The Guardian Related Itemslast_img

Fraudsters Spoof Phone Lines of Indian Embassy in U.S. to Make Fake Calls

first_imgThe telephone lines of the Indian embassy in the United States have been spoofed by fraudsters to make phone calls, with an aim to cheat people, an advisory issued by the embassy of India in Washington DC said. According to the advisory, some of these calls are shown as being from the telephone numbers of the embassy, while others simply use embassy identity.“These fraudsters either seek personal information like credit card details etc. or try to extort money from Indian nationals by inter alia claiming that there are errors in their passports, visa forms, immigration forms etc.,” the advisory stated. The fraudsters impersonating the Indian embassy officials claim that the error could be rectified by paying money, and at the same time warn that the so-called errors, if not rectified, could lead to deportation of the individual to India or their imprisonment in the United States.The issue was brought to the notice of the embassy by some Indian nationals in the United States who had received such a phone call.“In some cases, these fraudsters have also falsely claimed that they received such privileged information from the embassy or other authorities in India. Visa applicants have also received such calls purporting to be from the embassy,” the statement added.The advisory cautioned people against entertaining any suspicious telephone calls made in the name of the Indian embassy. It has also advised them against revealing any personal information or transfer any money in response to such calls. “They may bring such matters to the notice of the embassy at the email address cons1.washington[at]mea.gov.in.,” specified the advisory.The statement from the embassy said that no officials from the embassy would make any telephone calls seeking personal information from any Indian or foreign nationals. It stated that if any additional documentation is required from an existing applicant, it is sought only through emails originating from the e-mail domain @mea.gov.in.The Indian embassy has started collecting data from the public, which includes details of the Western Union account number or details of the bank account where the amount was transferred. It has also informed the U.S. Government about the fraudulent telephone calls and launched its own internal investigation, reported PTI.It has also asked people willing to share information on spoofed phone calls to fill a form available on the embassy’s website and send it through an e-mail with a subject “information on spoofed calls.”In a similar incident in February, Action Fraud, the fraud and cyber-crime reporting center in United Kingdom, issued an alert against scamsters who claim to be from the Home Office and call victims saying there is a problem with their immigration status. The main aim of these hoax calls is to swindle money from the victims.In December last year, Indian embassies in Canada, France, Italy, Spain and Portugal had also issued public notices against fraud calls that display their landline number. The callers usually asked people who have legally migrated to the country to transfer a sum of money citing some reason or the other. Related ItemsIndian AmericanUnited Stateslast_img read more

Indian designers obsessed with celebrities?

first_imgCelebrity sightings on the runway – a superfluous exercise, or an indicator of a mutually beneficial relationship between designer and star? We find out.One actress, six months, three shows for three different designers. The price – 8-12 lakhs depending on the stature of the designer concerned. Plus the usual trappings. A business-class air ticket, a Mercedes to pick up the star, a suite at a fivestar hotel, etc etc. And was it worth it? Sure, if you judge the entire exercise by the pictures of the star accompanied by the said designer of the moment in the city supplements. Not if you look closely. Hardly a mention of the clothes or the actual fashion.So why does practically every designer (with the exception of a handful) hanker after a Bollywood showstopper? The answer may lie in the fact that in a country so diverse and versatile, the one common denominator between socioeconomic classes and geographical differences is its cinema-where its movie stars make these made-in-Mumbai films come alive, and lend mass appeal. Thus a star at a fashion show is an easy crutch to draw attention.We now have multiple fashion weeks. In fact so many such exercises are being mounted, that the inevitable ‘fatigue factor’ has reared its ugly head, and both the audience and the press are reluctant to pay too much attention to these shows. Compounding the problem is the fact that each week is packed to the gills with quantity rather than quality. So whether you are a young designer starting out, or an old one fading fast, the only way to bring in the crowds and get the chatterati talking is the presence of a movie star.Yet the exercise is quickly losing momentum. Often, movie stars looking to promote their upcoming releases will walk the ramp at fashion shows and then go on to talk about their latest film instead of the outfits they just wore. And jaded by the phenomenon, newspapers have started to simply ignore the final walk on the ramp, and publish interviews with these stars (who have been made available at the designer’s expense), where they talk about everything under the sun, except the show.But sometimes the association can be beneficial. If the designer works with a star and the star is a client or an admirer, then the connect is relevant and real. Sabyasachi, the talented man from Kolkata, has designed for long for actress Rani Mukerjee, and she has been a faithful presence at his shows. So is the case with Tarun Tahiliani and Shilpa Shetty, who walked for the designer and has sported his ensembles at her wedding and other red-carpet occasions. Plus there is Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla who have always been the designers of choice for the Bachchan family and Dimple Kapadia among others, with these stars enthusiastically being part of every show the designer duo mount.Part of the problem has been exacerbated by fashion magazines, who in their quest for larger sales, dumped models from their covers in favour of movie celebrities. So if the press subscribed to the practice, the fashion fraternity was only too happy to follow.In the late ’90s, a watch company was launched in India. The name of the brand was a difficult one for the Indian tongue to pronounce. And thus sales suffered in spite of an aggressive advertising and PR campaign. The solution: a male star with a pan-Indian reach was called in and made its brand ambassador. An active event calendar and a big advertising campaign followed. In two years, it was among the top watch brands in the country with the star endorsing the timepieces in his shoots and films.The lesson here is that the partnership between brand and star was established as a long-standing one, and over time consumers recognised the fact. Compare this with a star’s solitary ramp walk at a fashion show that instantly fades from public memory, and doesn’t garner lasting benefits.The question to ask is, what makes customers flock towards fashion labels? Is it the multiple pictures of a movie star wearing a brand, or is it the actual fashion garments themselves?Packing a front row with B-list movie stars (as demonstrated by a designer known for his pushy manners) only takes away from whatever little design he is displaying on the ramp. Compare this to a Manish Arora and Rajesh Pratap Singh who have, to my memory, never used a movie star on the catwalk, and yet have been lauded show after show for the finesse and beauty of their presentations. Both designers, by remaining true to their essence, have garnered international acclaim and commercial success.Around the globe, we see that fashion brands engage with movie talent in a more multi-layered manner. If the star is sitting on the front row at their shows, more likely than not, he or she also features in their advertising spreads. In India, the cost of using a star in a fashion campaign is prohibitive, making this an impossibility. None of the Indian fashion houses are large enough to afford this kind of a relationship with a leading Bollywood figure.And so we will continue to see stars sparkle on the ramp in the foreseeable future. And until the show sponsors, the page-three press and the designers themselves are happy with this little stunt and what it brings to the table, fashion will remain incidental, and never the focus.advertisementadvertisementlast_img read more

Louis van Gaal defends tactics, says Manchester United still ahead of Tottenham Hotspur

first_imgLouis van Gaal had Manchester United fans scratching their heads with a baffling halftime substitution then suggested his lacklustre side are still “ahead” of Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday despite a crushing 3-0 defeat.The Dutchman, who has been under incessant pressure this season, took off young striker Marcus Rashford and played winger Ashley Young as a centre forward in the second half at White Hart Lane.United had restricted Tottenham before the break without offering much goal threat, but rather than switch the lively Anthony Martial to a central role, he left the Frenchman wide and played Young out of position.Young barely got a kick and Tottenham scored three goals in six minutes through Dele Alli, Toby Alderweireld and Erik Lamela to keep their Premier League title hopes alive and leave United struggling to finish in the top four.”It was more or less equal before the goal,” Van Gaal, whose side are fifth, four points behind fourth-placed Manchester City, told reporters before being asked to explain the substitution that had United fans ranting on social media.”I want more runnings in behind because I think we have chances to do that because they are like us, an attacking side with full backs coming up.”Ashley Young has done that very good in the second team and Marcus did not have his best match today and that’s why I change it.”Van Gaal has managed to keep his critics at bay in recent weeks with his widely-admired policy of blooding young players and the possibility of a top-four finish.advertisementBut he bristled when it was suggested that he might regret having chosen to join United rather Tottenham two years ago.In that time Tottenham have developed into title contenders under Mauricio Pochettino while United are labouring under a style of football that saw them manage only one shot on target in north London on Sunday.Tottenham are now 12 points ahead of United who suffered a first league defeat at White Hart Lane since 2001.”I think that in the balance we are still ahead,” said former Barcelona and Bayern Munich coach Van Gaal, whose day began badly when the United team coach was stuck in traffic forcing a 30-minute delay to kickoff.”It is a little bit pathetic you asked that (whether he regretted his choice) because they have won 3-0. It’s easy to ask that but ok, you enjoy yourself.”The challenge was bigger for me at Manchester United and shall always be bigger. I’m sorry for Tottenham but Manchester United is a bigger club.”Van Gaal still believes his side can finish in the top four though and qualify for next season’s Champions League.”Can we finish fourth? Yes, because we have 18 points available so we still have a chance, but it’s more difficult than before the match that’s for sure,” he said.last_img read more

UKs Johnson caught lying to dad of sick child on hospital visit

first_imgLondon: British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said he was not embarrassed after being filmed lying to the father of a sick child angrily confronting him during a hospital visit on Wednesday. Johnson was stopped by the dad, whose daughter was being treated at the London facility, to hear complaints about cuts to health funding and criticism that he was using the visit as a “press opportunity”.

Neymar saves PSG to send French champions three points clear

first_imgParis: Neymar scored a fine late winner as Paris Saint-Germain beat Lyon 1-0 to move three points clear at the top of the Ligue 1 table. The Brazilian finally beat Anthony Lopes, who had pulled off numerous impressive saves, with three minutes of normal time on Sunday to play at the Groupama Stadium. It was Neymar’s second winning goal in as many league games since being reinstated to the team following a protracted transfer saga which saw him attempt to force through a return to Barcelona. Also Read – We will push hard for Kabaddi”s inclusion in 2024 Olympics: Rijiju “Neymar can do better,” said PSG coach Thomas Tuchel. “It’s the second or third game in four months for him. He’s not at 100 percent capacity. “He is not at his limit. He can do better, he will do better. He’s going to get to his best level, with matches and decisive goals like that, it’s going to help him.” The Parisians sit top on 15 points after Angers and Nice both won over the weekend to temporarily join Tuchel’s side at the summit, and followed up their impressive midweek Champions League victory over Real Madrid with the win in constant drizzling rain in Lyon. Also Read – Djokovic to debut against Shapovalov at Shanghai Masters Sylvinho’s Lyon remain in ninth place and are without a win since mid-August. PSG were without the attacking trio of Kylian Mbappe, Edinson Cavani and Mauro Icardi due to injuries, while midfielder Marco Verratti started on the bench. The best of the early chances fell to Neymar on 22 minutes but his effort was superbly saved by Lopes. Neymar was denied again by another tidy Lopes stop four minutes before the break as the Portugal international tipped the Brazil forward’s dangerous free-kick over the bar. PSG’s domination from the first half carried over into the second 45 minutes. Abdou Diallo had the pick of the chances, using the wet conditions to glance a header from a Neymar corner over the crossbar. The world’s most expensive player was targeted by home fans when taking set-pieces from the left-hand side as they threw plastic bottles and rolled-up bin bags at him. With 87 minutes on the clock, substitute Verratti found Neymar in the box who dribbled into space and finally beat Lopes to the keeper’s left with a low shot. He celebrated by running towards the same corner of the ground where he had earlier been taunted by the Lyon supporters. – Hat-trick hero Ninga – ======================== Earlier, Angers moved into second place after replacement Casimir Ninga scored an 11-minute hat-trick in a 4-1 thrashing of Saint-Etienne. Ninga, who joined the club from second-tier Caen in August, put Angers into the lead with less than a quarter of an hour remaining before adding two more goals by the 89th minute to clinch their first home win over Saint-Etienne in 43 years. The defeat at Stade Raymond Kopa leaves Les Verts a point above the relegation zone, with Ghislain Printant’s outfit having failed to win since the opening day of the season. Stephane Moulin’s Angers, who finished 13th in the league last season, have claimed four wins from their opening six fixtures to pull level with Nice in second spot. “Casimir made a thundering impact. I truly congratulate him because he’s worked a lot since arriving at the club,” Moulin said. “The second half perfectly resembles what we have been doing since the start of the season. It’s a little bit new but it corresponds perfectly to what we’re trying to do.”last_img read more

Robust domestic structure helping womens national team do better Bembem

first_imgPasighat (Arunachal Pradesh): Bembem Devi, the country’s most decorated woman footballer, feels that the robust domestic structure has laid the “foundation stone” for the senior national team to do better in the international stage. “Tournaments such as the Hero Senior National Football Championships lay the foundation stone for a strong women’s national team,” Bembem said on the sidelines of the ongoing Senior Women’s Championships. “All the players in the national team have come through the ranks from sub-junior, junior and senior national championships. It always helps them to gain experience and hone their skills which eventually proves to be handy while representing India in the international stage,” she added. Also Read – We will push hard for Kabaddi”s inclusion in 2024 Olympics: RijijuThe former India captain said “young girls rubbing shoulders with the senior players in Indian Women’s League (IWL) is equally advantageous for the players in the long run”. Of late, the average age of the senior women’s national team has gone down significantly, and Bembem believes it has happened mainly because of the domestic competition structure. “During my initial days, there were few girls who were 19 or less. With time, more youngsters have started to get selected for the national team. As a result, the average age has gone down which is a major positive side of the National Championships. It couldn’t have been possible without the domestic tournament structure,” she stated. Also Read – Djokovic to debut against Shapovalov at Shanghai Masters”I remember Bala (Devi), Prameshwori (Devi), Pyari (Xaxa) and a few other girls came into the national team set-up quite early. I still remember they were very shy and I tried to break the ice so that they can play freely. Now, they have taken up the mantle,” said the Arjuna awardee. Bembem, who had won 13 Senior National Championships for Manipur, including eight as captain, mentioned Daya Devi as a prime example who got benefited from the system. “Daya broke into the national team before she was 19. That’s the success story of National Championships and IWL. These girls, with their national team experience go back and help their state teams in the Nationals. This is a cyclic process.” Defending champions Manipur are known for their fluidity in attacking and their natural scoring ability. They have already scored 35 goals in four matches so far, having conceded only two. “Manipuri girls grow up together and most of them play together since the sub-junior days which create a strong understanding within the team. That’s the secret of Manipur’s success story,” Bembem said.last_img read more
