Saif Ali Khan had a spat with security personnel at the Lucknow Airport when he was not willing to leave the VIP lounge where he was not authorized to enter. He had visited the city to promote his upcoming movie ‘Bullet Raja’. Ultimately,he had to leave the lounge and join the commoners’ zone after the senior officials intervened and asked him to be evicted out.
Well, is he yet not a VIP ? Bollywood actors of his status are generally given VIP treatment throughout the nation. Aren’t they ? Moreover he is the son of a Nawab-Nawab Pataudi and now a Nawab himself by default! 😉 . And to add on it happened at Lucknow Airport, of all ? It is a city of Nawabs and Kebabs !! 😀 Is that how they treat a Nawab ? 🙂

The US resolution against Sri Lanka over alleged human rights violations has been passed at the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in Geneva with 25 countries, including India,favouring the resolution while 13 against(included Pakistan) and 8 abstained from voting (includes Japan) !
While,Sri Lanka claims the war to finish Tamil terrorism and issues related to it are its internal matters and that US has no rights to intervene, India’s voting against Sri Lanka is bound to tense relation with its small yet strategically placed neighbour(which shares healthy relation with China and Pakistan) . Interestingly,Pakistan voted in favour of Sri Lanka.

Beni Prasad Verma , the much controversial Union Steel Minister,who once belonged to the SP(now in Congress) had previously accused SP supremo ,Mulayam Singh of having ‘terrorist connections’ in a rally. This had created a big chaos in the House as well where Mulayam and Beni,attacked each other verbally. Beni did not seem being sorry about his statement while SP demanded his resignation from his post as a compensation of their supremo’s insult from the government. Meanwhile,DMK(an ally of current government) quit the government over the Sri Lanka issue which could cripple the government if SP (which is supporting the UPA government from outside) takes its hands off due to Beni’s statement !
While Beni Prasad went to meet Manmohan Singh , the Prime Minister, Sonia met Mulayam Singh (probably to convince him to calm down on Beni Prasad’s issue). Sooner than later, Beni Prasad stated he regretted if his remarks (on Mulayam) hurt sentiments and that he apologizes for the same . 😀
Well, this is what we call politics . Nobody is a permanent friend or foe ! 😀
