WHEN SHIVANGI KAPOOR DID NOT RECOGNIZE HER OWN KIDS

PI3A5569Shivangi Kapoor who has recently visited the set of Shraddha Kapoor and Siddhanth Kapoor’s Haseena Parkar almost ignored her children on set as she did not recognize them.
Apoorva Lakhia has done a commendable job in the transformation of Shraddha and Siddhanth into Haseena and Dawood which has been garnering them a lot of appreciation.
While on set both the actors were shooting together in their Haseena and Dawood’s get up when their mother came to see them. Shivangi who was standing right beside Shraddha and Siddhanth could not recognize them and asked the team to show her way to their changing room. Shivangi then called Shraddha and found the phone ringing right beside her.
Glancing at her kids in that avatar, Shivangi was quite thrilled of the transformation and the hard working the team is putting in to get the nuances of their character.
Apoorva Lakhia shares, “It was quite funny when Shivangi came on set and could not recognize Shraddha and Siddharth who were right in front of her. When she finally saw them, she was very surprised and for us, it was a great moment as the authenticity of the look and transformation was appreciated in this way.”
Directed by Apoorva Lakhia, Haseena Parkar stars Shraddha Kapoor, Siddhanth Kapoor and Ankur Bhatia. Produced by Nahid Khan with Swiss entertainment and co-produced by Sameer Antulay & Babu Tyagi the film is set to release on 18th August 2017.

Pakistan calls for DGMO talks
DGMO level talks on behest of Pakistan’s DGMO was held on 17 Jul 17.
During the talks the Pak DGMO raised the issues of targeting of Pak Army troops which resulted in the death of four Pakistani soldiers and one civilian in Athmuqam Sector of Pakistan occupied Kashmir opposite Indian Keren Sector, Kupwara District.
Indian DGMO in response highlighted that all Cease Fire Violations were initiated by Pakistan Army and the Indian Army only responded appropriately to them. Apart from these, firing by Indian troops was initiated against armed intruders when attempting to infiltrate from close proximity of Pak posts along the Line of Control (LC).
DGMO also put across emphatically that the trend of infiltration along the LC continued with active support of Pak forward posts impacting peace and tranquillity along the LC and also the internal security situation. This was evident from continued attempts of sniping and targeting of our troops undertaken through cross border actions duly supported by Pakistani Army troops.
DGMO made it implicit that Indian Army reserved the right to retaliate appropriately to any incident of violation of ceasefire but is sincere in its effort of maintaining peace and tranquillity along the LC provided there was reciprocity.

TPP AND INDIA: LESSONS FOR FUTURE GAINS BY HARSHA VARDHANA SINGH

New Brookings India Working Paper
trade1.jpg
Till 2015, the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) was seen as a game-changer in the evolving international trade regulatory regime. It was evident, as expressed by India’s Foreign Trade Policy 2015-2020, that it would not be possible for the country to accept the emerging agreement.
The future of TPP is now uncertain, with the US, the largest economy in the TPP, withdrawing from the agreement. This is of some relief to India because the TPP would have eroded India’s access to certain key international markets.
The present situation, however, gives more than just relief: it creates several important opportunities for India. The text of the TPP agreement provides a template for potentially helping India with its domestic policy reform, its regional or multilateral collaborative initiatives (e.g. for regulatory coherence), and even with some ideas to mitigate the concerns arising in trade negotiations at the regional or WTO level.
India’s concern with trade negotiations is largely with respect to tariff negotiations. In the case of TPP, the large tariff decline agreed under the negotiations would be impossible for India to accept. In this context, it is interesting that the TPP agreement also provides examples of a number of flexibilities to protect domestic industries if required, subject to specified conditions. Further, the extent of flexibility could be augmented by considering the various types of solutions agreed under TPP, ranging from soft disciplines (such as guidelines or best-effort agreement), to much more legally binding disciplines underlying the large tariff reduction by member counties.
These possibilities could be examined to provide possible models or starting point for seeking flexibilities that may lead to mutually acceptable solutions in trade negotiations for areas which otherwise would be a serious concern for India.
Like other products of the Brookings Institution India Center, this paper is intended to contribute to discussion and stimulate debate on important issues. The views are those of the author(s).
