Shivashish Mishra Is The New Captain Of The House

New Delhi: 

Bigg Boss announced the new captaincy task sansani khez khulasa in last night’s episode, which definitely brought in some spice to the game. In today’s episode, the contestants continued with the second phase of the task. The Bigg Boss house found its new captain, Shivashish Mishra, who managed to get a strong lead over Deepak Thakur (with whom he was competing in the captaincy task). Post the captaincy task winner was announced, Dipika Kakar made a shocking revelation. Dipika revealed that she saved herself from “casting couch”. Surbhi rants about Sresanth to Deepak and calls him a “terrible person.” She later gets into a fight with Deepak, Romil, Sreesanth, Saurabh and Jasleen. After the fight, Surbhi breaks down in the washroom where Khan sisters and Srishty rode come to console her.

It was also time for the Kalkhothri nominations and most of the contestants have Surbhi’s name on their minds. Jasleen and Shivashish have a discussion over who they should be nominating for the Kaalkothri. Surbhi nominates Jasleen while The Khan sisters, Jasleen and Deepak nominate her. Karanvir Bohra nominates Romil for Kaalkothri.

The twist in the tale arrives when Bigg Boss announces that Shivashish, as captain, has a special power. Using his power Shivashish can save someone and instead send someone else to Kaalkothri. Without second thoughts, Shivashish saves Romil and sends Dipika in his place. Dipika, Sreesanth and Surbhi are sent to the Kaalkothri but the decision does not go down well with Sreesanth.

Indian-American Woman Minal Patel Davis Awarded At White House For Combatting Human Trafficking

Minal Patel Davis is currently implementing Mayor Turner’s Anti-Human Trafficking Strategic Plan.


An Indian-American woman has been honoured with a Presidential award by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for her extraordinary contribution towards combatting human trafficking in Houston.

Minal Patel Davis, Special Advisor on Human Trafficking to Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner, received the ‘Presidential Medal for Combating Human Trafficking’ in the White House last week at a ceremony also attended by President Donald Trump.

“It was unbelievable,” said Ms Davis after winning the award, the country’s highest honour in the field.

“My parents came here from India. I was the first one in my family born in the United States, so to end up in the Mayor’s office a few years ago, and then to now end up in the White House, it was unbelievable,” she said.

Appointed in July 2015, Ms Davis has made a local impact on human trafficking in America’s fourth largest city from a policy-level perspective and by helped in advancing systems change.

She is currently implementing Mayor Turner’s Anti-Human Trafficking Strategic Plan, which is the first comprehensive municipal response to human trafficking by a US city.

Ms Davis has spoken at several local, national and international panels and presented Houston city’s approach.

She is a past speaker at the United Nations World Humanitarian Summit and recently travelled to India and Canada at the request of the State Department to discuss municipal leadership in trafficking with the government officials.

She did her MBA from the University of Connecticut and BA from New York University.

How Portrait Of Trump Drinking Diet Coke With Lincoln Reached White House

The portrait went viral and baffled people with several questions.


Previously spotted in D.C. gift shops and jigsaw puzzle boxes, a fantasy print of Donald Trump entertaining Abraham Lincoln while every other Republican president in history watches now hangs outside the Oval Office.

The portrait was shown hanging in Trump’s personal dining room during his “60 Minutes” interview on Sunday, and the freeze frame instantly went viral, baffling people with questions.

How did the painting get to the White House? Why does Trump look nearly as svelte as Dwight Eisenhower? Is he drinking a Diet Coke? Is that Taft in the background!? Why is everyone laughing? WHAT IS LINCOLN SAYING TO TRUMP!?

The White House has not responded to a request for comment. Fortunately, “The Republican Club” by Andy Thomas is not an obscure artwork. Thomas has sold countless prints of it online and through gift shops, as he has previous entries in his bipartisan series, such as “True Blues: Democratic Presidents Playing Poker” and “Callin’ the Blue: Republican Presidents Playing Pool.”

So The Washington Post tracked him down at his studio in Carthage, Missouri, to ask the burning questions.

Q : What is going on in this painting? Where even is this?

A: I put it in a private-club type thing. Not a restaurant, not a bar, but a private club. It shows all of the Republican presidents, some of the more major ones in the foreground, but they’re all in there.

They’re kind of story-telling. Lincoln and Trump in particular are relating, and everybody else is reacting.

Q: What are Lincoln and Trump saying to each other?

A: I have no idea. That’s the funny thing: We don’t know how they would get along. Just because they’re all Republican doesn’t mean they actually like each other.

Q: How did it end up in the White House?

A: I once painted [California Republican congressman] Darrell Issa’s portrait. We got to go to Washington, and Darrell gave us a tour. He had both of my original paintings in his office, of the presidents playing poker. We stayed in touch. Darrell’s a real friendly guy. He contacted my wife, Dina, one day and said: “Gee, I saw you’ve got a new one. I’m going to show it to President Trump.”

[An Issa spokesman confirmed this account to The Post: “Rep. Issa and Andy Thomas are indeed friends, and the Congressman has some of Andy’s fine work in his office. President Trump appreciates the art that Andy does and the Congressman did deliver the portrait to the White House.”]

A couple weeks ago, we got a call. Somebody at the White House said, “Trump wants to speak with you.” Sure enough, he did.

We had a real nice conversation. Trump said something like “I’m in the Oval Office with Darrell Issa, who you know, and Vice President [Mike] Pence. We’re looking at your painting. I’ve never seen this! Vice President Pence tells me they’re very well known.”

I remember he said he’s seen a lot of paintings of himself and he doesn’t usually like them. He liked that one. He kept talking about my talent and this and that. He asked a little about politics. It lasted three or maybe four minutes. I hung up and said, “I’m too good to go out and finish mowing the lawn.” (Laughs.)

Q: So Trump doesn’t have the original painting?

A: It’s a high-quality laser print. The original is still in my studio.

Q: Trump does look pretty good in your painting. He actually looks more athletic than he does in real life.

A: I wanted to make everybody look as good-looking as they can, and try to shed the pounds where I need to. Or smooth some lines. I did it with every figure.

Q: His smile is very charming. I don’t think I’ve ever seen Trump smile like that.

A: It’s a good-feeling painting. I just assume people are nice. I try to make people as good-looking and happy as I could.

The first painting I did in 2008, originally I had Richard Nixon looking paranoid and covering his cards. I thought about that and thought: “That is not right. The poor man suffered from clinical paranoia, I shouldn’t be making fun of it.” I intentionally look for happy pictures.

With Trump, I looked through just a ton of photographs. Some of the presidents smile naturally every time, and some don’t.

This is the second face I painted on Trump. The original one, I had a very sweet picture of him smiling with Melania and maybe his grandkids. It was very becoming of him, but it didn’t look as much like Trump as it should.

Q: Is Trump drinking a Diet Coke?

A: Yes. I researched it.

Q: What’s Reagan got there?

A: I put what looks like kind of a fruity drink. Reagan’s father was an alcoholic. I don’t want to show whiskey in front of him.

Q: And George W. Bush?

A: Iced tea. And Nixon enjoyed a good glass of wine.

Q: And Lincoln?

A: Water. This is mostly researched off the internet. I really don’t know.

Q: I’ve heard there’s some significance to the woman in the background.

A: That would be the first woman Republican president. I did the same thing in the Democratic painting.

Q: Is your work styled after other artists?

A: I always liked the American illustrators. I do primarily Western paintings – cowboys and Indians. Frederic Remington and Charles Russell are two of my favorites. And Howard Pyle. And some Norman Rockwells.

But I’ve been doing artwork all my life – since 1990, full time. I’m 61 years old now. It becomes your own style.

Q: Now that your painting is all over the Internet – and because everything with Trump is so polarized – some people are making fun of it.

A: [Laughs.] I’m used to it. It’s kind of discouraging that sometimes people are so venomous, but that’s the way it is. I just paint! It’s kind of a nice life.

Anup Jalota And S Sreesanth Create Divide In The House

A still from Bigg Boss 12.

New Delhi: 

Tonight’s episode of Bigg Boss 12 was replete with twists and turns. Unaware of S Sreesanth and Anup Jalota’s re-entry in the house, the housemates woke up to the tunes of the song Do Mastane Chale Zindagi Bitane, which was a subtle hint of what is in store for them. In tonight’s episode, Bigg Boss entirely changed the dynamics of the game and declared that there will not be any more jodis in the house and that all the contestants will now be competing against each other. The nomination process took place in a different way. Before splitting all the jodis, Bigg Boss invited all the jodis to the activity area and asked them to decide, which one of them should be nominated for this week’s eviction. As per Bigg Boss’ instructions, the jodis had to nominated the contestants who according to them, were least entertaining. The contestants who were nominated for this week’s eviction include Karanavir Bohra, Dipika Kakkar, Urvashi, Srishty Rhode and Saurabh.



On a lighter note, devotional singer Anup Jalota entertained all the contestants by singing Bachna Ae Haseeno from the confession room. Anup Jalota and Sreesanth received a warm welcome from all the housemates. Jasleen was delighted by Anup’s presence, while Karanvir couldn’t contain his excitement and got extremely emotional on seeing his friend Sreesanth.



In another segment of the show, Anup and Sreesanth told the housemates about the true colours of Dipika’s personality and asked them to be alert of her. Dipika was on the radar of both Anup and Sreesanth. Anup Jalota also told Karanvir Bohra that he seems to be highly influenced by Dipika and he called Jasleen gullible. It will be interesting to see if the changed dynamics will affect the relationship between the housemates.

Melania Trump Says There Are People In The White House She Doesn’t Trust

First lady Melania Trump said in an interview broadcast Thursday that there have been people in her husband’s White House whom she doesn’t trust, including some who still work there.

During the interview with ABC News, conducted during her recent solo trip to Africa, Trump also asserted that she is one of the most bullied people in the world, as she discusses her child-welfare initiative, Be Best, which includes a focus on combating cyberbullying.

Trump was asked by ABC’s Tom Llamas if the president has had people working for him that she didn’t trust.

“Yes,” she replied, adding that she has let her husband know.

“Some people, they don’t work there anymore,” Trump said.

Asked if there are still people in the administration she can’t trust, Trump said yes.

“It’s harder to govern,” the first lady said. “You always need to watch your back.”

Her comments come in the wake of an anonymous op-ed in the New York Times last month claiming there is a “resistance” within the Trump administration. The Times said the piece was written by a senior administration official, whose identity still has not become public.

During the interview, Llamas also asked Trump if she has the most control over her husband’s decisions of those in the White House.

“Oh, I wish,” she said, laughing.

“I give him my honest advice and honest opinions, and then he does what he wants to do,” Trump said.

During the interview, Trump also said, “I could say I’m the most bullied person on the world.”

Pressed on that assertion, she added: “One of them, if you really see what people are saying about me.”

Delhi: IT Raid on Minister Kailash Gehlots house, AAP flare up

खास बातें

  1. कहा- 20 संसदीय सचिवों के केस में कैलाश गहलोत की प्रमुख भूमिका
  2. कई बार मुंह की खाने की वजह से बीजेपी करा रही छापेमारी
  3. गहलोत के घर और कुछ निजी प्रतिष्ठानों पर आयकर के छापे

नई दिल्ली: आम आदमी पार्टी ने दिल्ली सरकार के मंत्री कैलाश गहलोत के घर पर बुधवार को इनकम टैक्स विभाग की छापेमारी पर तीखी प्रतिक्रिया जताई है. पार्टी ने कहा है कि केन्द्रीय एजेंसियों का दुरुपयोग किया जा रहा है और केन्द्र सरकार ‘आप’ को डराने के लिए अपनी इन एजेंसियों का इस्तेमाल कर रही है.

आप की प्रवक्ता आतिशी ने संवाददाताओं को बताया ‘‘गहलोत के घर और कुछ निजी प्रतिष्ठानों सहित 15 से 16 स्थानों पर आयकर विभाग ने छापेमारी की है. आप नेताओं, विधायकों और मंत्रियों के विरुद्ध केन्द्रीय एजेंसियों की छापेमारी की यह पहली घटना नहीं है. पिछले घटनाक्रम से साफ है कि केन्द्र सरकार अपनी सभी एजेंसियों का उपयोग आप को डराने के लिए करती है.’’    

आतिशी ने कहा कि इससे पहले सीबीआई ने दिसंबर 2015 में मुख्यमंत्री कार्यालय में, उप मुख्यमंत्री मनीष सिसोदिया के आवास पर जून 2017 में तथा मंत्री सत्येन्द्र जैन के घर और कार्यालय में 30 मई तथा इससे पहले भी कई बार छापेमारी हुई. आप के 28 विधायकों के खिलाफ दिल्ली पुलिस ने विभिन्न मामले दर्ज किए. उन्होंने कहा कि आप शायद देश की इकलौती पार्टी होगी जिसे लगभग दूसरे दिन आयकर विभाग का नोटिस थमा दिया जाता है.

आतिशी ने कहा कि आप नेता इन मामलों में एक-एक कर अदालत से निर्दोष साबित हो रहे हैं. उन्होंने कहा कि इन मामलों की अदालत जांच में सीबीआई से लेकर प्रवर्तन निदेशालय सहित अन्य केन्द्रीय एजेंसियों को न्यायालय की फटकार भी सुननी पड़ती है. इससे साफ है कि केन्द्र सरकार अपनी एजेंसियों का आप के खिलाफ दुरुपयोग कर रही है.

इसकी वजह बताते हुए आतिशी ने कहा कि लाभ के पद के मामले में आप के 20 विधायकों के खिलाफ चुनाव आयोग में चल रही सुनवाई में गहलोत पार्टी विधायकों का नेतृत्व कर रहे हैं. इसलिए इस बार गहलोत केन्द्र सरकार के निशाने पर आ गए हैं. इसके अलावा दिल्ली के लोगों को घर बैठे सरकारी सुविधाएं पहुंचाने की योजना को गहलोत प्रशासनिक सुधार विभाग के माध्यम से कारगर बनाने में लगे हैं. उन्होंने कहा कि इस योजना को कामयाब बनाने से रोकने के लिए गहलोत को निशाना बनाया जा रहा है.

Take Action Against Imran Khan’s House First, Says Pak Top Court

Imran Khan’s colonial-style house in Bani Gala reportedly has five bedrooms.


Pakistan Supreme Court Chief Justice Saqib Nisar on Friday asked authorities to first initiate action against Prime Minister Imran Khan’s sprawling Bani Gala residence as he heard a case on illegal constructions in the federal capital’s suburb, according to a media report.

Justice Nisar said that the Capital Development Authority (CDA) should first act against Mr Khan’s Bani Gala residence, days after he asked the cricketer-turned-politician to first pay fine to reguralise his property.

Mr Khan had sought the court’s attention towards the large-scale encroachment, unchecked and unplanned construction in Bani Gala, massive denuding due to massive tree felling and pollution of the Rawal Lake due to sewage.

During the hearing, the full bench headed by Justice Nisar said Prime Minister Khan should be the first person to take steps towards regularisation of his property in order for others to follow his example, the Express Tribune reported.

The premier’s counsel, Babar Awan, replied they will cooperate with the CDA to resolve this issue.

Justice Nisar asked how they were planning to cooperate and what documents are they planning to take to the development authority.

A report by Survey of Pakistan regarding encroachment in Bani Gala was submitted during the hearing on Monday, to which Justice Nisar remarked that whoever illegally constructed buildings in the area will be subject to a fine.

The Pakistan Supreme Court on October 1 observed that it is the job of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf-led (PTI) government of Mr Khan to regularise all properties located in the Bani Gala area, including his private residence.

Mr Khan’s colonial-style house in Bani Gala reportedly has five bedrooms.

Recalling that it was Khan himself who had approached the apex court with an application regarding illegal constructions in Bani Gala, Chief Justice Nisar said the prime minister would have to initiate the process of regularisation of the area by paying the required fine.

“Imran Khan should submit fees towards regularisation before anyone else,” directed Justice Nisar said on Monday.

Going Extra Length To Find Substitute For Iranian Oil For Countries Like India: White House

US said any country continuing to do business with Iran will be blocked from the US banking system


The United States is going an extra length for countries like India and Iraq to find substitute for Iranian oil, the White House said.

The White House said on Thursday as it reiterated its warning to all purchaser of Iranian oil to bring it down to zero by November 4 or face imminent sanctions from the United States.

“I’ve had conversations (with Indian officials on purchase of Iranian oil). Others in the administration have had conversations with senior Indian officials,” the US National Security Advisor John Bolton told reporters at a White House news conference.

Mr Bolton who last month met his Indian counterpart Ajit K Doval in Washington, a week after the two-plus-two dialogue in New Delhi, said the Trump Administration has made its views clear to Indians on Iran.

“One of the things I think that’s important, whether it’s for Iraq or India or anyone else — particularly that’s been a purchaser of Iranian oil — we’ve gone to really extra lengths to try and find substitute sellers of oil so that there would be alternative supplies at market rates,” Mr Bolton said.

“That will help. This is something, obviously, the Obama administration wasn’t doing at all. And I think this will help toward our effort of persuading companies and governments, particularly in Asia, that there are alternatives to Iran that they can pursue,” he said in response to a question.

According to Mr Bolton, as the second wave of sanctions come back onto Iran on November 4, the objective of the Trump administration is to put maximum pressure on the government in Tehran.

“It’s our objective that there be no waivers from the sanctions, that exports of Iranian oil and gas drop to zero,” he said.

“I’m not saying we’re necessarily going to achieve that, but nobody should be operating under any illusions, what the objective is. You can look at the possibility of reductions leading to zero. It doesn’t have to happen immediately, perhaps,” he said in a tacit acknowledgement that countries like India might not be able to bring down their oil purchase from Iran to zero.

“But ‘this is not the Obama administration,’ would be my message not just to Iraq but to everybody else. And the frequency and the ease of getting waivers and exemptions is not going to be our policy,” he warned in a message to the international community not to take the American threat not seriously.

“I might say, also, that we’re not going to stop with the resumption of the sanctions that existed pre-2015. We’re looking at others that we can impose as well,” Mr Bolton said.
