Set to be the first woman to be a full-time Defence Minister in India, Nirmala Sitharaman’s journey in the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) started as a spokesperson, and grew in rank soon with her speaking style and debating skills.

On Sunday, Sitharaman became India’s second woman Defence Minister and the first woman to take charge of this key ministry full time. Then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi had held the Defence portfolio twice – from December 1 to December 21 in 1975, and January 14, 1980 to January 15, 1982.

“Somebody who has come from a small town, grown into the party with all the support of the leadership, and if given such responsibility, it just makes you feel sometimes that cosmic grace is there. Otherwise it is impossible,” Sitharaman told reporters here after taking oath as a Union Minister.

An economist by education, Sitharaman will take charge of the crucial ministry at a time when tension continues along India’s borders with Pakistan and China, and the government is undertaking major reforms in the ministry and forces, and has ambitious plans to increase defence manufacturing under its flagship ‘Make in India’ policy. Born in the temple town of Madurai in Tamil Nadu in 1959, Sitharaman has humble roots. Her father worked in the Railways, and her childhood was spent in different parts of the state due to her father’s transferable job. According to those close to the minister, her mother, a homemaker, had love for books, which instilled a love for reading in Sitharaman as well.

After finishing her graduation in Economics from Seethaiakshmi Ramaswamy College in Tiruchirapalli, Sitharaman did a Masters and M.Phil in Economics from the premier Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) in Delhi. She then worked in the Agricultural Engineers Association, UK in London, Senior Manager, Research and Analysis with PricewaterhouseCoopers, also in London and briefly with the BBC World Service. After coming back to India, Sitharaman served as a Deputy Director of the Centre for Public Policy Studies at Hyderabad. She also started a school in Hyderabad, and was a member of the National Commission for Women from 2003-2005.

In 2008, Sitharaman joined Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) and was made a member of the National Executive and became a national spokesperson of the party in 2010. As a spokesperson of the main opposition party at that time, Sitharaman, with her clear command of issues and straight approach, came in the limelight soon.

When the BJP came in power in 2014, Sitharaman was inducted into the ministry, serving as Minister of State for Finance and Corporate Affairs and then held charge of Commerce and Industry Ministry as Minister of State (Independent Charge). Sitharaman is married to Parakala Prabhakar, an alumnus of Jawaharlal Nehru University and London School of Economics, and the couple has a daughter.

Neil Nitin Mukesh and Rukmini Sahay

Bollywood actor Neil Nitin Mukesh will be celebrating his first Ganpati with his beau Rukmini this year at his residence and his family is going the extra mile to ensure it’s a memorable one.

The theme for the family’s 23rd Ganpati will be based on the deities Krishna and Rukmini with Rasleela coming to life this year.

As part of a traditional ceremony, Neil will make Rukmini wear an anklet right after the Ganpati Pooja that was given by the family’s spiritual consultant a few years ago to Neil’s mother Nishi Mukesh for her to-be daughter-in-law.

After the first few days of Ganesh Chaturthi, Neil will also be taking his first honeymoon with Rukmini to London and the couple will be gone for a whole five weeks.

While Neil will be working for the first three weeks on his next film ‘Firrkie’, the remaining two weeks will be devoted to his wife.

Neil Nitin Mukesh states, ‘My mother always desired of a Radharani theme for Ganpati since she is a devout Krishna follower so this year her long lasting desire has been fulfilled. It’s been exactly one year since I met Rukmini and Bappa truly fulfilled my heart’s desire. I clearly remember it was the first day of Ganpati last year when I met Rukmini and the minute she told me her name I was convinced that she was the one for me.’

Speaking about his honeymoon, he states, ‘This year however I won’t be there for the full 10 days as I am off on a working honeymoon with Rukmini. She quite enjoys coming to the sets as that’s the only way we get to spend time with each other and she’s quite the hands on wife. Ever since I got married I’ve just been busy with work and Rukmini deserves my complete attention so I will be exctending my trip in London since London is her favourite holiday destination.’

On the professional front, Neil is busy with films including ‘Saaho’, ‘Golmaal Again’ and ‘Firrkie’.

Having spent almost two decades in the industry, Akshay Kumar is one of the most bankable actors today. While many big actors’ films are tanking at the box office, Akshay’s films not only makes big bucks but also are loved and appreciated by the viewers for the social message they often have. 

But when a successful actor like him feels that he hasn’t got his due as an actor from the industry, it’s pretty disheartening.

Swag is for boys, class is for men 😎

A post shared by Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) on Mar 15, 2017 at 3:15am PDT

While talking to a leading daily about his upcoming social satire film ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’, he said, “I still haven’t got my due as an actor from the industry, I just got the National Award.”

Well, many of you might point out that he is a recipient of National Award and a Padma Shri to which he stated, “That is recognition from the government, not the industry.”

People who are ardent Akshay followers or have read about him, are aware of his success and failures. There was been a time when the actor has delivered 12 flops in a row and despite that, he has he has overcome everything and reached the top. 

There are very few actors who stick with the same people despite a film tanking at the box office and Akshay is certainly one of those guys. “I’m friends with every producer and director I work with. Our association is not limited to the films we’re doing that point in time. There are directors with whom I have had three flops, yet I have trusted them with the fourth film. A lot of people didn’t give up on me, so I don’t give up on the director if a film doesn’t work.”

‪In Lucknow today,ending the promotions where the journey of Jolly started!Now the case is in your hands,see you on Friday� #2DaysToJollyLLB2‬

A post shared by Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) on Feb 7, 2017 at 11:35pm PST

When asked about how he often detaches himself after the film recovers from the box office collection, the actor stated, “Well, anyone would be nervous, but I’m lucky that I get to experience it three-four times a year. I feel less nervous than those who have only one film a year because then, the pressure is more. At the most, I’ll be sad till the weekend. Also, it’s not that I want to vanish when my film releases, as some sections of the media report. For example, I’ve taken a 15-day break from the schedule of Gold in London, to promote Toilet: Ek Prem Katha. Once this film releases, I’ll return and resume shooting as people are waiting for me there.”

It’s truly alarming when someone like him who is at such a stature feels that the industry still hasn’t given him his due as an actor. Despite the fact that when the Khans’ films are failing big time, his films are the saving grace of the industry. It’s not just about the box office collection but also the reality that he has proved himself again and again and now is the time the fraternity paid its debt.

It’s a Jolly good morning here in Manali😉 Just arrived and already afraid of missing it when I leave…the crew & the film. #lastschedule

A post shared by Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) on Oct 5, 2016 at 8:27pm PDT

Well, whether the industry does what it is supposed to do or not, we truly love, admire and respect Akshay for being such an amazing actor.
