The other attendees included superstar Rajnikanth’s wife and film producer-playback singer Latha, former President of Bangladesh Hussain Muhammad Ershad, Filipino politician Ferdinand Marcos, President and CEO of Forbes Michael S. Perlis, Indian politicians like Kamal Nath and Digvijaya Singh.

The high-profile wedding had guests ferried from ports of top hotels in boats designed like the Kashmiri shikaaras to the venue.

Tinted red, the venue for the wedding which is mostly an island, was decked up in the best of flowers, drapes with well-organised seating arrangements for all present.

While the grandeur was enough to keep the guests gawking as they entered, the food options were a cherry on the top.

From celebrity chef Ritu Dalmia herself whipping up bites of vegetarian heaven to the beautifully arranged fruit station, the food offered here had something for everyone no matter how small or how big an eater the guests were.

The venue was split into two as the Jaimala took place on one side while the pheras happened on the other. The mandap (where the pheras or rounds take place) was majestic in gold with an amphitheatre like setting around it where the guests could witness the matrimonial rituals.

Devotional singer Prem Khushwaha played the live music at the wedding.

BJP Minister caught urinating in public near campaign poster, Calls it ‘Old-age Tradition’

Published

Ajmer, Oct 8: A picture of Bhartiya Janata Party minister urinating near a wall, next to a campaign poster featuring chief minister Vasundhara Raje is making rounds on social media.

The minister, Shambhu Singh Khatesar, justified himself by saying that urinating publicly was “an age-old tradition” and he had done nothing wrong.

Speaking to media Khatesar said, “There was a wall and some posters stuck at some distance on it. I hadn’t paid attention. It isn’t right to urinate in open but it’s a natural call. Urinating in a crowded area, is wrong”.

On the Narendra Modi government cleanness drive the minister stated “As far as Swachh Bharat Abhiyan is concerned, urination alone doesn’t contribute to uncleanliness. That place did not have urinals for kilometers at a stretch”.

Iran-Pakistan gas pipeline

Moscow, Sep 28 (IANS) Russia and Pakistan signed a memorandum of understanding on implementing a project to build an underwater gas pipeline from Iran to Pakistan and India, the Russian Energy Ministry said in a statement Thursday.

“The memorandum provides for the identification of authorized organisations through which the project will be supported, including during the development of a feasibility study, identification of the resource base, configuration and route of the gas pipeline,” the statement said, Xinhua reported.

Russian Deputy Energy Minister Anatoly Yanovsky and Pakistan’s Ministry of Energy Additional Secretary Sher Afgan Khan signed the document in Moscow.

Now Russia will have to inform Iran and India about the signing, after which it expects to sign a similar document with India, Yanovsky said in the statement.

The project was frozen in 2013 due to the imposition of sanctions against Iran, but its revival started in 2017. In November 2017, Russia and Iran signed a memorandum that envisaged Russian support for gas supplies from Iran to India.

In March, a Russian-Iranian working group on the implementation of the project had its first meeting.

According to Yanovsky, Russia and Pakistan were holding consultations on another project of building the 1,100 kilometer North-South Gas Pipeline (NSGP) between Pakistan’s Karachi and Lahore to transport 12.3 billion cubic meters of gas per year.

The implementation of an agreement signed in October last year between Russia and Pakistan on Russian liquefied natural gas (LNG) supplies “can become a promising direction of cooperation,” he said.

The governments of the two countries were also considering signing an agreement on Russian oil products supplies to Pakistan, Yanovsky said.

In addition, Russian electric power industry has shown interest in the Pakistani market, he said.
