‘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.

Effect of monetary policy on risk, stability and financial crises
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.

Menstrual taboo outdated
I have seen my sisters and friends isolated and treated in discriminatory manner during their first menstruation cycle. They were not allowed to look at the sun, to touch water source, flower, fruits, any male family member, nor even hear their voice. The activist may claim the situation has changed and I do agree but still during every month my loved ones turns into untouchables beings.
