‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ actress sentenced to 2-year jail term
Indian daily soap actress Alka Kaushal, who is also known for her roles as Kareena Kapoor Khan’s mother in ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ and Kangana Ranaut’s mom in ‘Queen’, was recently sentenced to a two-year jail term along with her mother.
According to Times of India reports, Kaushal and her mother had borrowed Rs 50 lakh from a farmer based in Lagrian village, to make a serial but failed to return his money. Alka had handed over two cheques of Rs 25 lakh each but the farmer's advocate claimed that they bounced. The farmer had moved the Malerkotla court back in 2015, which sentenced them to jail. Alka then appealed to a higher court at Sangrur for some relief, but the additional session's court upheld the lower court's decision. Reportedly, the actress and her mother are now in Sangrur district jail.
The actress is known for her negative roles in several daily soaps.

The Doklam dilemma
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.

To dogs, with love
Many find talking about basic animal rights stupid when no basic rights of people are guaranteed. However, there are still few people who are aware how humane behavior has turned toward cruelty and indifference which can be vividly seen through the way street dogs and other animals are abused around us.

Although they seem to be very much communist while in opposition, whether about the 'Indian semi-colonial status' in Nepal or American hegemony, this has never been evident while they actually come into power and rule Nepal.

What we need to learn from Thailand?
Thailand is a developing country. But it seemed like a developed country at first sight. It is hard to believe that Thailand is a developing country. There are big buildings, and clean and broad roads. The city is clean with no trace of pollution.
