Basking in the success of his movies "3 Idiots", "Dhoom 3" and "PK" in China, a rare feat for an Indian film actor, Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan is now promoting his recent outing "Dangal".

While his "3 Idiots" was a big hit, especially among students and parents, "PK" too became a big winner grossing 100 million Yuan (USD 16.70 million approx).

It was a bit surprise for Aamir, who told the media here that none of his films were a success in China, until the release of his first collaboration with Rajkumar Hirani.

He said, "Films featuring top artists from both the countries could bring the two nations close."

A large number of Aamir's fans turned up to watch the preview of the Chinese version of "Dangal" here.

The Nitish Tiwari-directed movie will release in China next month.

The 51-year-old actor will also visit Shanghai and Chengdu to promote his film.

Recently, China has increased the quota of Indian films to be screened from two to four, after joint productions "Kung Fu Yoga" and "Buddies in India" fared well at the box office during the Chinese New Year.

    Being a buffer state between the two giant neighbors, Nepal should conduct its foreign policy vis-à-vis China and India in a very sensitive manner. Nepal has always maintained that it would not allow its soil to be used against any neighbor. At the same time, Nepal should make sure that its own national interests are never compromised.

    The crisis of 2008–09 has reignited a new interest in understanding money and credit fluctuations in the macro economy, and the crucial roles they could play in the amplification, propagation, and generation of shocks both in normal times and, even more so, in times of financial distress. This may reopen a number of fundamental fault lines in modern macroeconomic thinking between theories that treat the financial system as irrelevant, or, at least, not central to the understanding of economic outcomes, and those that reserve a central role for financial intermediation.

    I was scared before I started volunteering, not so much because of the work I would be doing, but of the fact that I would be living alone in a new city where I wouldn’t know anyone except a handful of relatives, with everyone who I was close to on the other side of the world.

    I don’t intend to draw comparisons, but I can’t help notice a vast difference in the way kids these days are, and I only have the parents to blame. Because let's face it, just at the quote, I mentioned above goes, kids only become what they see.

    I have seen my sisters and friends isolated and treated in discriminatory manner during their first menstruation cycle.
