By Madhavi Jadhav:

We cohabit in an indulgent world, where we get what we wish for, where all our answers seem a mere click away. But are we asking the right questions? And more importantly, are we asking them to the right people? There is a schism today in our collective psyche, oscillating between sexual mania and Dhat syndrome. At one extreme is the graphic visual imagery made accessible to the young impressionable minds by the all-pervasive internet. At the other end, we not only avoid, but harbour revulsion to the ‘dirty three letter word’. Not to the act per se (why else would we continue to multiply at such an alarming rate? It is not mitosis you know), but discussing it.

I’ve Judged Many Women Before But Here’s How “Pink” Changed My Outlook

Image result for pink movie
“No means no” – a phrase that echoed in my mind after the film was over. After the movie, I came home, sat by the bed and quietly mulled over various incidents that shocked me, because we are living in a society where we think we are open-minded but in reality we are not, we are living in denial. In this article, I would be expanding some of these incidents.

Plot Summary Of The Movie “Pink”

The story of “Pink” revolves around three women who meet a bunch of guys at a rock concert and decide to hang out with them, until the men express their dark intentions. This, in turn, ends badly, as one of the girls (Minal) ends up having an altercation with one of the men (Rajvir).

GOOD NEWS – Railwaymen to get 78-day wages as bonus (PLB)

New Delhi, Sept 28 (PTI) Ahead of the festive season, government today gave its approval to pay 78-day wages as bonus to railway employees, the same for the fifth consecutive year.
The Cabinet meeting chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi approved the pay productivity-linked bonus (PLB) equivalent to 78-day wages to eligible non-gazetted railway employees (excluding RPF/RPSF personnel) for the financial year 2015-16.
Productivity-linked bonus is paid to about 12 lakh railway employees each year before the Dussehra festival.
The approval entails a financial implication of approximately Rs 2090.96 crore to Railways
Payment of PLB would result in motivating a large number of railway employees to improve the performance of the Railways and enhance the productivity levels further besides maintaining industrial peace.
In 2011-12, 2012-13, 2013-14 and 2014-15 also, 78-day wages were also given as PLB to railway employees.
"We have demanded 78-day wages as productivity-linked bonus (PLB) for railway employee this year. We are happy that government has agreed to our proposals," National Federation of Indian Railwaymen General Secretary M Raghavaiah told PTI.
Raghavaiah said the 78-day wage is expected to be around Rs 18,000 per employee.
Welcoming the decision, All-India Railwaymen's Federation General Secretary Shiv Gopal Mishra said the bonus will motivate the employees to improve the financial position of the public transporter.
Mishra said, "Since the PLB ceiling has been revised to Rs 7000 from Rs 3500, we expect each employee will get double the amount as against the last year's bonus."
Last year, the minimum bonus paid was Rs 8,975 per employee.
PLB covers all non-gazetted railway employees (excluding RPF/RPSF personnel) spread over the entire country

ASUS ZenFone 3 review: Luxury redefined with super performance

A screen grab of the Asus Zenfone 3 from the company’s website.

ZenFone 3 is your choice if you are looking for luxury, display and better performance

While most smartphone makers — especially those from China — have flooded the Indian market with devices in the Rs. 10,000-Rs 15,000 price range, Taiwan-based technology major ASUS believes there is still room in the country for luxury with superior performance and design.
ASUS launched its popular ZenFone Series in a brand new avatar in India in August, with ZenFone 3, ZenFone 3 Deluxe, ZenFone 3 Ultra and ZenFone 3 Laser smartphones.
ZenFone 3 (5.2-inch) is priced at Rs. 21,999, ZenFone 3 Deluxe and ZenFone 3 Ultra at Rs. 49,999 and ZenFone 3 Laser starts at Rs. 18,999.
A direct take on OnePlus 3 (Rs. 27,999), Xiaomi’s Mi5 (Rs. 24,999) and LeEco’s LeMax 2 variant (6GB RAM and 64GB) which comes for Rs. 29,999, let us see what the Rs. 27,999 ZenFone 3 (5.5-inch) device has for the Indian consumers looking for luxury with super performance.
A premium flagship device, the shimmer gold-coloured smartphone fits in your palm effortlessly. Its signature “Zen design” at the rear will grab eyeballs.
The device sports a 5.5-inch touchscreen display with a 1080 X 1920 pixel resolution. Powered by an octa-core updated Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, ZenFone 3 comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 128GB via a microSD card.
The device is just perfect for heavy gaming, movie viewing and multi-tasking without heating issues. The audio was superb while running Full-HD and 4K videos. The speaker is loud enough to hear someone out in a crowd or in traffic.
When it comes to the camera, Asus ZenFone 3 has 16MP primary camera on the rear and 8-megapixel front camera for selfies which worked excellent in both low and bright-light conditions. We did capture some balanced shots with the device.
What left us spellbound was the display that uses the “Deep Trench Isolation” technique for natural-looking images and sharp texts.
On the software part, the dual SIM device has the ASUS patented ZenUI 3.0 and runs the Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system.
Battery life and connectivity
The 3,000 mAh battery comes with “Quick Charge” technology for faster charging. The battery gave us nearly 11-12 hours on one change with moderate usage like being on Facebook, WhatsApp and Twitter and streaming music. Impressive battery life, indeed.
Weighing just 155 grams, ZenFone 3 accepts Micro-SIM and Nano-SIM connectivity options, like Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, FM radio, 3G and 4G/LTE. Network connectivity with even low-powered Wi-Fi was particularly good.
The device comes packed with features like excellent fingerprint scanner, proximity sensor, accelerometer and an ambient light sensor.
What does not work:
We had a few issues while recording 4K videos like the device getting heated up a bit but this is generally the problem with most devices in this segment. A quick charging battery, however, helped us record videos with ease.
Conclusion: At Rs. 27,999, Asus ZenFone 3 has brought in tough competition for OnePlus 3 which has received rave reviews in the Indian market. ZenFone 3, however, is your choice if you are looking for luxury, display and better performance — all packed in one.
