Bollywood’s legend singer Asha Bhosle just turned 85 on 8th September 2018 who was once recognized as the perennial ‘Number 2’ while her elder sister Lata Mangeshkar was the Number 1. Now, each of us considers Asha Bhosle as the topmost talent singer of all time! Through all these 85 years, her legacy has continued to grow with time!

Happy birthday to Asha Bhosle!!

As the evergreen singer Asha Bhosle turns one year younger, let’s take a look at her 85 years’ long legendary musical career that inspired many young singers till today.

Asha Bhosle: ‘Bollywood playback doyenne’

Yes! Asha Bhosle just turned 85 today and we can only wish her luck and good fortune on this very special day. Since the beginning of Asha Bhosle’s career, the rivalry between two sisters started. At that time, Lata Mangeshkar was not just famous for her melodious voice but was also giving Bollywood all-time big hits one after the other. Other than music, cooking was her favorite hobby and pastime!

Asha Bhosle’s successful career: She has sung more than 11,000 songs in not only Hindi films but only films in other languages like Marathi etc. throughout her music career. Do you know that she has sung in 20 different languages? No Bollywood singer until today has that potential to break her unbeatable record. Although she made great records, people used to consider as the Number 2 after her elder sister Lata Mangeshkar.

Sibling rivalry: At that time, the Hindi music buffs used to talk about the career rivalry between Lata  Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle. But, the sisters’ rivalry was unsuccessful to stop Asha Bhosle from getting appreciation and recognition. Throughout her career, she has proved herself as a unique and self-made singer/musician. That doesn’t mean that she received success without putting extra efforts and hard work! When she started her career, she was married! She was dealing with so many problems in her personal life. Yet, she out-shined from everything and made an unbeatable place for herself in the industry!

With a magnificent voice, Asha Bhosle started her music career like a rock star. Like her sister, she started giving hit songs in the industry one after another. Soon she became everyone’s favorite. Throughout these 85 years, her music has grooved us all. Her youthful exuberance and charming persona haven’t just made her famous but she has also become an inspirational figure for many people!

Since NDA Came Into Power, Green Clearances Are Now A Mere Formality; Diluting the Old Environmental Norms!

Before the NDA (National Democratic Alliance) came into power in 2014, the UPA (United Progressive Alliance) created the EIA (Environmental Impact Assessment) Notification legislation back in 2006 for monitoring the overall environmental impact due to overall industrial development in India. As well all know, green clearances are being done in several areas over the past five to four years. Now, the environmental governance researchers are raising a serious concern on the recent green clearance scenario and different dilute environmental norms supported by today’s business-friendly government!

The scenario over the past four years:

The Union government has accepted over 1,098 projects in order to make some major development in India. Indeed, it’s a great move to make great development over 124,788 hectares area. But, this action has led to massive environment clearance (EC) as well! More than 6,060 projects in different development sectors have been completed while increasing EC massively. According to the reports, greenery was fully gone from 80% of the areas in Delhi.

Moreover, the Union Ministry of Environment has also focused on two primary laws EC (Environment Clearance) and forest diversion. The government has focused on Forest and Climate Change while increasing awareness among the people of India through certain guidelines and amendments to follow in order to keep the environment clean from pollutants. Green clearances are now treated as a mere and undeniable formality.

Rights diluted by the Union Ministry of Environment:

The Union Ministry of Environment has also diluted the entire environmental impact assessment process which was introduced by the previous government while diluting several rights-based legislations as well! Additionally, NDA has been focusing on reforming the previously created environmental clearance (EC) process and forest diversion process in order to ignore overhaul. The first change NDA brought was to make the coal mining projects open in order to keep the development process smooth. The Forest Advisory Committee (FAC) now reviews Forest Clearance cases and determines whether to approve it for several different development projects.

Government’s reconciliatory approach to stop the violators:

The government has adopted a strict reconciliatory approach in order to stop the violators. A six-month window has been fixed for all projects that need obtaining an EC for proceeding further. This has improved the compliance greatly. In March 2018, the government has agreed to allow SEAC/SEIAA for taking action against the violators. Overall, the past four years of Government’s action clearly indicate that nothing much has actually improved in the green clearance and the government needs to work harder to change the current scenario!

Outfits We Wish To Steal From Priyanka Chopra

Priyanka Chopra has always been an elegant actress with her stunning choices. This ‘’Desi girl’’ steals hearts with her cute smile and the fashion that separates her. From the gym to the urban style, she is both feminine and elegant. She mixes things and chooses an incredible look for everyone. Just to appear, there is something to be said with the diversity of her style.

The latest Priyanka Chopra garments are ideal for romantic picnics. When dating her famous boyfriend Nick Jonas, Priyanka dresses in everything from wedding dresses to romantic flowers. Enjoy your eyes with ideas ready to appear as stolen from Priyanka. More than a week has passed since the romantic story of Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas are in headlines. Since then, we have felt swoon up every time the actor and the singer appeared as a pair.

Nick and Priyanka go through everything from the formal unofficial dress to their white dresses and jeans. She may have spent all these years wearing clothes and designer brands that have helped to improve fashion senses, but Priyanka is pretty sure what to do when it comes to choosing a dress that is liked by Nick. Do not miss the opportunity to enjoy the most exciting stardom of the season, to inspire her fans. Among many fashion trends, it seems that shimmers and sparkles are the favorites of Priyanka Chopra.

So the next time you look at your clothes closet with no clue what to wear, take a tip from Priyanka closet, nicknamed the unofficial queen of the night.

Priyanka was recently seen at Mumbai, issuing a dazzling statement in the CO gray dress, a luxury category fashion brand based in Los Angeles. This exquisite dress features floral prints, translucent sleeves and a high neck with elegant tie-ups. Priyanka worked with a pair of shiny silver and black sandals and a pair of elegant tones.

This is not once that Priyanka chooses light colors, but it is sprayed with an adequate amount of brightness to reach the glam factor. Do you remember impressive appearance made by her at the Women’s Summit in June by Forbes? The actress has attracted the attention of everyone with a dazzling silver shirt with a skirt folded by one of her best designers- Ralph Lauren.

The moment can’t be missed when Priyanka went out with friends in California from top to bottom in the channel brand. She wore a white and silver channel brand jumpsuit, with cut-out and flared trousers, embellished with accents like a Chanel bag, a transparent box, a beaded belt, and a shiny necklace.

Again, when we talk about flashes, we should remember the appearance of PC during the wedding of her friend Meghan Markle, when she looked royal in a Dior champagne gown dress.

Priyanka Chopra certainly proves that when it comes to wardrobe, the best thing is adding a dose of brightness.

Trivial Reasons that broke down the top Bollywood friendships

Bollywood, basically known as the world of glamour is a fancy place which is full of love and hatred. It is an industry filled with friends, enemies, fame, light, and colors but it even bears the negative of all that stardom. The Bollywood is not easy and it does not remain a secret anymore. Every fan witnesses the PDA as well as breakups and catfights of the celebs with their partners and best friends. The celebs share an unpredictable bond, that is, friends become enemies and enemies become friends. It is an endless awful cycle of public humiliation and fights where the celebs keep accusing and taunting each other. There are celebs who have been best friends at some point in time but now they refuse to bear each other’s sight.

Here is a list of some celebrities who bear grudges on each other:-

  • Kareena Kapoor Khan and Esha Deol

Kareena Kapoor and the famous actress Hema Malini’s daughter Esha Deol went to same high school and were closest of friends. In the year 2002, in an interview, Kareena Kapoor said that Esha Deol is one of her closest friends. They shared a sisterly relationship, Kareena Kapoor was six films older that time and treated Esha Deol as her younger sister. She helped Esha Deol and taught her all the do’s and don’ts. They had the same likes and dislikes regarding things. Lastly, Kareena Kapoor said that she is quite sure that their friendship is envied by all in the B-Town.

Today Kareena Kapoor Khan and Amrita Rao are ultimate BFFs.

  • Deepika Padukone and Sonam Kapoor

Sonam and Deepika debuted around the same time in Bollywood. They bonded really well in Karan Johar’s “Kjo’s Koffee with Karan”. It was the time when Sonam Kapoor did her first movie with Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika had broken with him. They ripped off Ranbir Kapoor by laughing at him on the show. But very soon, Sonam Kapoor was seen accusing Deepika Padukone’s PR team and fashion.

  • Karan Johar and Kajol

The entire fraternity was shocked with Karan Johar’s and Kajol drifting apart. Karan has always considered Kajol as her lucky charm but just because of some personal issues and hurtful feeling the warmth of their friendship remains no more.

  • Salman Khan and Hrithik Roshan

Things got sour between the popular buds Salman and Hrithik just because of Sanjay Leela Bhansali. When he offered the movie “Guzaarish” to Hrithik instead of Salman. It was the time when Salman made many negative comments on Hrithik and his movie – Guzaarish and burnt Hrithik Roshan.

  • Shilpa Shetty and Twinkle Khanna

Shilpa Shetty and Twinkle Khanna were B-Town’s popular best friends until Akshay Kumar happened. While Shilpa was dating Akshay Kumar he got married to Twinkle and ditched her. Nothing could be worse for Shilpa Shetty as she was ditched both by her boyfriend and best friend. Although she was not upset with Twinkle at that time and could not even continue to be friend with her anymore.
