  1. 1. MadhuriPushkar<br />MadhuriPushkar, employed in the Indian High Commission in Islamabad, was arrested for spying. She passed on some documents to her Pakistani handlers. A defiant Madhuri reportedly asked her interrogators: What took you so long to arrest me. She reportedly spied for taking revenge on the IFS cadre. But Foreign Ministry officials said she did not pass on critical information<br />
  2. 2. ShashiTharoor<br />ShashiTharoor, the MP from God's Own Land, had the rare ability of running amok over various turfs. From his `holy cow' comment that made the Congress growl to his comment on Nehru, Tharoor was always in the news. But his involvement in the IPL saga was a bit too hard to digest. After meeting Congress chief Sonia Gandhi and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Tharoor put in his papers and made an emotional farewell speech in the LokSabha. But Tharoor got a lot of support from fellow tweeters.<br />
  3. 3. LalitModi<br />.  the then IPL chairman LalitModi tweeted on the holding pattern of the Kochi team. That one tweet rocked the IPL world. First Union Minister of State for External Affairs had to quit and then the man in the eye of the story, Modi, himself was shown the doors. The BCCI and the IT department are digging up all the multi crore deals struck by Modi. <br />
  4. 4. Eyjafjallajokull Volcano <br />. Eyjafjallajokull Volcano in Iceland Spewing High: Nature's Wrath to Behold<br />
  5. 5. shivalik<br />India added new fire power and muscle to its Navy when Defence Minister A K Antony formally launched INS 'Shivalik' -- the S-class Frigate -- at the Mazagon Dock on April 29. The Shivalik is a multirole stealth ship incorporating advanced signature suppression and signature management features along with both air defence and anti-sub marine capabilities. The 6200-kg INS Shivalik is the first indigenous stealth frigate that will join the Navy and will provide the sea wing the capability to launch surprise attacks on enemy target from very close range than other warships. Satellites can give inputs to the frigate on lurking enemy vessels and Shivalik can creep as close as possible to the target without being detected. It can then fire and scoot.<br />
  6. 6. UjjwalNikam<br />UjjwalNikam: 26/11 prosecutor and media star<br />
  7. 7. AjmalKasab<br />AjmalKasab gets death sentence<br />AjmalKasab, the lone surviving terrorist from Pakistan responsible for the 26/11 strikes, has been sentenced to death. Special judge M L Tahilyani, referring to the Kandahar experience — where the NDA government had to release dreaded terrorist AzharMasood in exchange for passengers of a hijacked plane — said a similar danger should not be left hanging over the government. “Kasab should be awarded the death penalty,” he said.<br />
  8. 8. Shah Faesal<br />Shah Faesal is first Kashmiri to top civil services exam<br />
  9. 9. ‘Deccan Odyssey and The Royal Orient<br /> Maharashtra and Gujarat the two Indian States respectively behind the ‘Deccan Odyssey' and ‘The Royal Orient' luxury trains that many a person would love to take a ride on as part of a holiday.<br />
  10. 10. MrinalSen<br />MrinalSen’s Bengali film Khandhar (1984) will be screened at Cannes this year 2010<br />
