Comedy king Kapil Sharma may be spreading smiles all around but he often finds himself under clouds of controversy every now and then After swimming out from Sunil Grover-Ali Asgar’s exit and news of The Kapil Sharma Show going off air the man has now found himself back in news With Navjot Singh Sidhu being indisposed the makers had got Archana Puran Singh to fill in his seat for few episodes Now certain media reports suggested that Navjot was highly offended by this and even had a fight with Kapil Sources close to the show however had a different story to tell indianexpresscom “Sidhu ji was genuinely unwell and Archana was asked to shoot for two episodes with the team The entire matter has been blown out of proportion He will be back soon to rock and roll with us” sources from the show said The source further shared “Kapil and Sidhu ji are quite close and such things will never crop up between them Sidhu ji will always wish the best for the show and since he was unwell the channel suggested to get Archana on board Kapil Archana and Sony have had a long association and she readily agreed to shoot with us In the entire industry if anyone can compete with Sidhu ji’s laughter it’s definitely Archana She fits the bill completely It was really sweet of her to join us in the last minute and like always she added a lot of cheerfulness and positivity in the team And now that Sidhu ji is hale and hearty he will be back on the show” Archana in a statement said “It feels weird sitting on Sidhu ji’s chair as we all are so used to him seeing on this throne Kapil called me the same day of the shoot and I couldn’t say no to an old friend as we go back a long way I’m here only for a few episodes once Sidhu ji is fit and fine he will take over his throne I will miss the show when Sidhu ji comes back and I’ll be always waiting for Kapil to call me to come again on this show” Navjot Singh Sidhu may not be an active participant in The Kapil Sharma Show but his loud laughter and guffaws definitely add fun and entertainment to the show He is also the one who can give it back to Kapil with his wit Last year when the cricketer-turned-entertainer had chosen to concentrate on politics there were talks of him quitting the show But being close to Kapil and the show Sidhu was soon back on the hot seat mouthing his trademark dialogue ‘Chal guru ho jao shuru’ While Kapil is trying hard to build up his empire back we wonder if this alleged fight would cost him The buzz in the industry suggests that Kapil will not risk the tranquility in his team or hurt Sidhu with such an act But if indeed there were any trouble we hope Sidhu and Kapil kiss and make up soon for without Sidhu’s trademark shayaris and presence The Kapil Sharma Show would be incomplete For all the latest

Snehal Naik the “revolution” will see a group of six coaches from Pune training nearly 1000 children from 10-12 padas (villages) of the Vikramgad taluka of Palghar district “Due to their geographical

is anything but optimistic as the awareness and infrastructure necessary for the development of sportspersons of international level is lacking Our aim in approaching the school level is mainly to identify and nurture raw talent right from a very young age” he said Naik who has been in the field of sports research and training since 2011 runs a sports academy near Chandani Chowk Through the ‘sports revolution’ he hopes to introduce to tribal children the chance to have a career as professional sportspersons “Professional sportsman are absorbed in the forces as well as police We aim to

latest Mumbai News download Indian Express App More Top News WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned the United States on Tuesday that it was negotiating a bad deal with Iran that could spark a "nuclear nightmare" drawing a rebuke from President Barack Obama and exposing a deepening US-Israeli rift Delivering duelling messages within hours of each other Netanyahu made his case against Obama’s Iran diplomacy in a speech to Congress that aligned himself with the president’s Republican foes Obama responded in the Oval Office declaring in a frustrated tone that Netanyahu offered "nothing new" In its response the Iranian government denounced Netanyahu’s 39-minute speech as "boring and repetitive" the state news agency IRNA said In an appearance boycotted by dozens of Obama’s fellow Democrats Netanyahu said Iran’s leadership was "as radical as ever" and could not be trusted and the deal being worked out by the United States and other world powers would not block Iran’s way to a bomb "but paves its way to a bomb" "It will all but guarantee that Iran will get those nuclear weapons lots of them" the Israeli leader said "We’ll face a much more dangerous Iran a Middle East littered with nuclear bombs and a countdown to a potential nuclear nightmare" His speech a point-by-point critique of Obama’s strategy drew 26 standing ovations in the Republican-controlled chamber Netanyahu both inveighed against the emerging deal and suggested broadening the scope of negotiations to require a change to Iran’s anti-Israel posture – an idea swiftly rejected by the Obama administration as de facto "regime change" in Tehran But Netanyahu also avoided any call for new sanctions now or for a total rollback of Iranian nuclear technologies – a signal that Israel might be able to resign itself to less Obama said the prime minister offered no "viable alternatives" Netanyahu’s speech culminated a diplomatic storm triggered by his acceptance in January of a Republican invitation that bypassed the White House Many Democrats considered it an affront to the president Obama refused to meet Netanyahu saying that doing so just ahead of Israel’s March 17 general election would be seen as interference The president who has a history of testy encounters with Netanyahu said he did not watch the televised speech but read the transcript "INSULT" Underscoring the partisan divide House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi called the speech "an insult to the intelligence of the United States" and said she was so "saddened by the condescension toward our knowledge of the threat posed by Iran” that she was near tears As many as 60 of the 232 Democratic members of Congress sat out the address Their absence was especially striking given Congress typically unites around the issue of Israeli security The boycotting by so many lawmakers could raise political heat on Netanyahu at home Many Israelis are wary of estrangement from a US ally that provides their country with wide-ranging military and diplomatic support Netanyahu entered the chamber to a cacophony of cheers shaking hands with lawmakers including House Speaker John Boehner At the start of the speech he sought to defuse the intense politicization of his appearance saying he was grateful to Obama for his public and private support of Israel including contributions to Israel’s Iron Dome anti-missile system Netanyahu then launched into a scathing attack on the Iran diplomatic efforts which face an end-of-March deadline for a framework accord But Netanyahu did not specifically call for new US sanctions something Obama has said would undermine ongoing talks and would prompt a veto if passed by Congress "If the world powers are not prepared to insist that Iran change its behaviour before a deal is signed they should at the very least be prepared to insist that Iran changes its behaviour before the deal expires" Netanyahu said He added that while Israel and similarly minded Arab states might not like such a deal they could live with it "literally" he said Former US Ambassador to Israel Martin Indyk who has had years of dealings with Netanyahu said: “The prime minister should say not only what is wrong with the deal but how to get from where we are today to a deal that he could accept And we didn’t hear that in the speech But you can’t beat something with nothing” Iran must commit to a verifiable freeze of at least 10 years on sensitive nuclear activity but the odds are still against sealing a final agreement Obama told Reuters on Monday Obama said a final deal must create a one-year “breakout period” for Iran which means it would take at least a year for Tehran to get a nuclear weapon if it decides to develop one thereby giving time for military action to prevent it Aides hope it can be a signature foreign policy achievement for Obama in his final two years in office Netanyahu has said such a deal would allow Iran to become a "threshold" nuclear weapons state He has hinted at the prospect for Israeli military strikes on Iranian nuclear facilities as a last resort but made no such threat in his speech (Additional reporting

example of how the government is all muddled up in its thinking In many waysit is also symptomatic of the malaise that has seeped into the bureaucracy due to a lack of clarity in decision-making largely a result of political drift Lets first question the tearing hurry for the government to auction its shares in ONGC Ltdan upstream oil PSU that is forced to share a part of the petroleum subsidy burden Staring at the prospects of the fiscal deficit significantly overshooting the 46 per cent of GDP target for 2011-12the government quickly went into a huddle Only to experiment with half-innovative solutions for raising revenuesauction being oneand buyback of government shares by cash-rich PSUs the other It did not quite realise that the market has already factored in bad news on the deficit front In factvarious estimates put the deficit at between 5 per cent and 6 per cent of the GDP for the year Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee was more than just giving hints when he said that he was spending sleepless nights thinking of mounting subsidies Unfounded fears of adverse political fallout have bound the government from raising prices of petroleum products and fertilisers even with high global crude oil prices Naturallypetroleum subsidy has ballooned But information about the total petroleum subsidy or the share of upstream and downstream oil PSUs is not yet available to investors So for investorsespecially foreign institutional investorsthe auction was akin to putting the cart before the horse Not that the government has not done its homework Estimates not made public yet suggest ONGC may end up shelling out Rs 40055 crore this year as its share of subsidy The other two upstream companiesOIL and GAILtogether will chip in a total of Rs 10000 crore Last yearONGCs share was just Rs 24893 crore FIIsfor whom transparency matters the mosthave no idea about this Indeedthe profits that ONGC will post for the full year depend a lot on the subsidy bill Besidesanyone will wonder if raising some thousands of crores of rupees through such pseudo disinvestment route will really set right the fisc The last Rs 10000 crore or Rs 20000 crore of extra revenue doesnt really matter Poor market intelligence further did the auction in The government set the floor price for ONGC at Rs 290 for a Rs 5 face value share The average three-month closing price of ONGC at the National Stock Exchange stood at Rs 2698 This meansthe issue was priced at a 75 per cent premium With little information of future profit potential and many unknowns such as global crude oil pricestotal oil subsidy burden and ONGCs sharethe governments pricing could at best be described as bravado The least the lead managers could have done was be honest about the unrealistic price They should have advised the government to leave something (at least Rs 5) on the table for potential investors Besidesboth the government and merchant bankers did nothing to market the issue Between 915 am and 320 pm last Thursdaythe day of the auctionthe issue saw a paltry 34 per cent subscription The stock exchanges stopped updating the auction data after 320 pm It was latebut the government did finally realise the issue would bomband worked the phones to get the Life Insurance Corporationthe state-ownedunlisted insurance giantwhich doesnt have a full-time chairman for almost a year nowto bail the issue out and spare the government its ignominy It was not until six hours later that unconfirmed reports of the issue sailing through started being fed to the media It is a shame that FIIswho invested a whopping Rs 36496 crore in equity in the first two months of 2012 in the secondary marketchose to ignore the ONGC offer for sale In factgovernment officials cooked up a brilliant story for the media and investors that the last 10 minutes witnessed a barrage of bids leading to a system overhang They even said the stock market regulatorthe Securities and Exchange Board
