Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham... Kajol not sure of working with KJo
They were one of the most popular Bollywood buddies once upon a time and have given hits such as "Kuch Kuch Hota Hai" and "My Name Is Khan", but Kajol now refrains from even talking about filmmaker Karan Johar.
The actress also hints that chances of her teaming up with the the filmmaker again are remote.
In his autobiography, Karan had said his nearly 25-year-long friendship with Kajol ended prior to the release of his and her actor-filmmaker husband Ajay Devgn's films -- "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil" and "Shivaay". The two films clashed at the box office during Diwali last year.
Ajay had said "nasty" things to him before the release of films and so he vowed "no matter what, she's out of my life", Karan wrote.
In an interview, Kajol says she works with only those people with whom she has a certain kind of comfort level.
"If you're not comfortable with the people you're working with, if you cannot speak up, or speak to the people you're working with....I think communication is a key element in working with people. You can't work alongside them if you don't talk," she says.
When asked if she is open to work with Karan, Kajol says, "Let me put it this way, I am not answering any questions on that particular point. If any of my other friends want to offer me a film I'll definitely do it."
The 42-year-old actress says even now, working with people she is comfortable with plays a big part in choosing roles, and that was one of the reasons she gave her nod to upcoming Tamil film, "VIP 2".
The actress features in the Soundarya Rajinikanth- directed film along with Dhanush. This is her second Tamil movie after "Minsara Kanavu" (1997).
"I would not have been able to do this film, taken that chance with the film which is in another language without knowing that Dhanush and Soundarya would back me up and safeguard me," she adds.
"VIP 2" is a sequel to the 2014 comedy-drama "VIP" and stars Dhanush, Amala Paul, Vivek, Saranya Ponvannan and Samuthirakani returning from the first film.
Soundarya had made her directorial debut with "Kochadaiyaan" which featured her father, Rajinikanth.

Amendment of Education Act: A betrayal to capable candidates
Not all, but many of the temporary teachers who have been wishing to become permanent, no doubt, appointed on the basis of their political ideologies. They couldn't succeed in the examinations despite repeated attempts. They carried the bags of those parties during their teaching career.
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.
Unanswered questions on recent leftist alliance
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.
