When I turned 21, I quit Terence sir’s academy to work as an assistant director. It was a clerical job and I hated it. That’s when I got a call from DID (Dance India Dance) and it turned into a life-changing experience, because there I met my mentor Remo Dsouza. I can say that if Terence brought dancing to my life, Remo put life into my dancing.
A British newspaper received an anonymous phone call about “big news” in the US minutes before President John F Kennedy was shot, newly released files on the assassination say. The memo from deputy CIA director James Angleton says the caller said that “the Cambridge News reporter should call the American Embassy in London for some big news, and then hung up.”
As the Chief Election Commissioner of India, T.N. Seshan’s name became synonymous with transparency and efficiency when he managed to stamp his authority on the country’s electoral system by conducting the cleanest elections in living memory. Nobody dared to violate the law. Electoral ‘battles’ would be dubbed as “Seshan versus Nation”.
T. N. Seshan wanted to join the civil services like his brother but at that time he was under-aged to appear for the IAS. To test his abilities, he sat for the Indian Police Service and stood first in India in the 1954 batch. The very next year, he appeared and successfully joined the 1955 batch of IAS, having been placed among the top rankers.
E. Sreedharan is known as “Metro Man” of India whereas T. N. Seshan is best remembered as the man who cleaned up elections in India. You will wonder to know that both these great people of India were classmates at a school in Palakkad. Both of them were selected for Engineering but for different colleges.
I give an open challenge to Prithviraj Chavan to call his (Congress-affiliated) sarpanchs and I will call mine. I am anyway going to call mine in Pune. Let us come face to face. If mine are not proven to be more, I will change my name
Being a woman is a gift and I have gifted myself a vagina. Three years ago I was a male model. I was on a Men’s cover magazine. Then I did a show with MTV as a male model. I had 8 pack abs, 16-inch biceps. I was a fit model… I still feel nervous because I have broad shoulders, broad arms. I am growing into a woman and I am loving it. I am becoming feminine day by day. There was a lot going inside me since my childhood but I didn’t know whom to speak to. But, my parents have been a constant support. They are God to me. It was my Dad who took me to Bangkok. We went to Thailand. Only my Dad was there with me. It must have been difficult for him too to see his son transforming into a girl. I used to tell my dad that, ‘Papa, it’s really very painful, it’s impossible.
I am not scared of death at all. If on my deathbed, I am asked, I shall say that I have no regrets, I have had the best of everything. So when death comes, I will just smile.
Someone threatened me, telling me he’d come to my house to cause harm. Daniel (Sunny’s husband) was not in the country and I was frightened, because I was living alone. I would hear noises outside my house and walk towards the door with a knife in my hand.
Sunny Leone recalled a horrifying incident, in which a social media user with a great number of followers, literally arrived at her house. Sunny said: “He started banging on my door. That his Twitter followers had also bullied me, made me fear that a mob would turn up and break into my house.” After the tragic incident, Sunny installed cameras outside her home but revealed that the incident still affects her.
