Dear Irani, say you are self-taught and move on

Raja Natwarlal review: Don't get conned into watching this Emraan Hashmi film

Why Raja Natwarlal isn’t named Jannat 3 will remain a mystery. Like Jannat 1 and its sequel, it is directed by Kunal Deshmukh, stars Emraan Hashmi as a street smart con man, involves a cricket based heist, a love interest who foils the plan and three hundred improbable contrivances to make the hero win the heist. #Bollywood #Emraan Hashmi #Emraan Hashmi Raja Natwarlal #Movie review #Paresh Rawal #Raja Natwarlal #Raja Natwarlal review

Hindi has put Indian culture on the world map

The primary aim of any language is to communicate. We can never imagine our lives without languages, can we? This is because we cannot live without communication. And this is precisely why languages have always played a dominant role in shaping our histories and have influenced the way we think and perceive things. #Hindi #Modi #Narendra Modi government

'Modi is reducing class divide by prioritising Hindi on social media.'

Don't misunderstand Modi's stress on Hindi. He is ensuring that people who speak their mother tongue are not inferior compared to the elite English class. #british #comment #Firstpost Community #Hindi #language #Narendra Modi #PM Modi #social media
