    Mira Rajput Kapoor Uses A Beautiful Unseen Picture From Her Wedding To Wish Her Dad On Father's Day

    God couldn't be everywhere, so He sent us fathers. He stands tall as a mountain over our heads to protect us from the winds of life and grasps us from the roots to help us stay grounded and turn us into successful individuals. Most of our fathers will never say love you to you daily for he surely knows that 'love' is a word that is not just to be said but it rather should be felt and bestowed. Agreed? We, as their children, should often walk up to them and remind them how much they are adored. If you need a cue on how to do it, Shahid Kapoor's beautiful wife, Mira Rajput Kapoor shows us how. (Do Read: Neha Dhupia Shares 'His First, Her First' Father's Day Picture Of Angad Bedi And Mehr Dhupia Bedi)Like any doting daughter, Mira Rajput Kapoor is extremely attached to her father. Time and again, through posts, pictures and interviews has she shared how much she adores her parents. Last year (2018), Mrs Kapoor had taken to Instagram and posted a beautiful picture of herself and her father, who was planting a peck on her cheeks. She had captioned the adorable picture as, "My strength and weakness Dad." Here's the picture:Today being a special day (Father's Day), Mira Rajput Kapoor once again took to Instagram to tell the world how much she loves her daddy dear. What looks like a never-seen picture from her wedding, the doting daughter had looked beautiful as she peacefully rested her head on her father's chest. She captioned the picture as "Words will never be enough to express what you mean to me. I love you Daddy!" On November 26, 2018, it was Mira Rajput Kapoor's father, Vikramaditya Rajput's 60th birthday. On the happy occasion, Mira had taken to Instagram and posted a few pictures, which had some adorable moments with her father. The same was captioned as, "Happy 60th Dad. From you, we have learned to love, to pray, to excel, to thank, to live." That simply had melted our heart? Take a look at all the pictures here: When it comes to expressing love for parents, Mira Rajput Kapoor surely knows how to do it just as right! Why do we say so? It was Mother's Day in on May 12, 2019, and Mira had posted an emotional message for her mommy darling. She had written, ""You'll know when you have your own" I love you Mom Nothing can ever compare to your love. Thank you for just being you. And for teaching me to be the mother I am today, even though I can't ever match up." (Also Read: Kunal Kemmu Sprungs Inaaya Naumi Kemmu In The Air And She Can't Stop Laughing, Soha Shares Video) Do you know, right after their daughter, Misha Kapoor's birth, Shahid Kapoor had apologised to Mira Rajput Kapoor's father? In an interview with Filmfare, Shahid had revealed, "I was both ecstatic and scared. I began thinking of Mira's father and how he must have felt when he gave away his baby, his daughter to this strange guy, an actor from Mumbai with a ponytail and coloured hair, who perhaps thought he was a 'cool dude'." Image sourceShahid Kapoor had further stated, "I called him up instantly and apologised if I had troubled him at any point. I may have overlooked his point of view somewhere, regarding something which may have been important to him, this realisation came when I held a baby girl in my hands when I felt vulnerable. I don't want anything to go wrong with her ever. I guess, being a man I always thought of as a man. But holding a baby girl gave me a new perspective. It changes everything."

    In brief: Court Number One; The Fire Starters; Unsheltered – reviews

    Notorious 20th-century trials from the Old Bailey’s principal court, a chilling tale inspired by the Troubles, and a community under threat in 1870s New Jersey. Court Number One Thomas Grant John Murray , £25 , pp448 Many of the nation’s most notorious trials have taken place at the intimidating Court Number One at the Old Bailey. In his excellent second book, barrister and author Thomas Grant offers detailed accounts of 11 of those cases, with protagonists ranging from the diabolical (Peter Sutcliffe, Ian Huntley) to the pathetic, including the Profumo patsy Stephen Ward and the unjustly executed Timothy Evans, stooge for 10 Rillington Place’s John Christie. There is plenty of humour throughout, not least from out-of-touch judges bewildered by “that Greek chap, clitoris”, but this is ultimately an affecting study of how the law gets it right – and wrong. The Fire Starters Jan Carson Doubleday , £14.99 , pp304 Many novels have attempted to tackle the Troubles and their legacy, but rarely have they approached the subject with the boldness and flair of Jan Carson. Juxtaposing two narratives, that of a reformed terrorist, Sammy Agnew, and a young doctor, Jonathan Murray, Carson offers a powerful treatise, shot through with flashes of magical realism, of the way man hands on misery to man. Although set 16 years after the ceasefire, it is not too difficult to imagine a world in which “fire, rage and chaos” throng the streets once more and Carson’s chilling tale uses its heightened situations and language to fine effect. Unsheltered Barbara Kingsolver Faber , £8.99 , pp544 (paperback) Barbara Kingsolver’s latest novel may be set partly in 1870s New Jersey, but its concerns are decidedly contemporary. The storyline revolves around the writer Willa Knox, who inherits the house that belonged to the former science teacher Thatcher Greenwood, a man of principle who outraged the supposedly utopian community, Vineland, by preaching the virtues of Darwinism. There are hints of AS Byatt’s Possession here in the way in which the dual narratives inform one another, and, although there are occasional longueurs, Kingsolver’s concern with how intolerance can poison both a community and individuals alike feels chillingly relevant in the age of Trump. .

    Beirut now has a bus tour and even more European tourists

    Beirut has launched a hop-on/hop-off bus tour service as the Lebanese capital experiences huge visitor growth.The number of tourists heading to Beirut has always risen and fallen depending on the political situation in the country.The 1960s was remembered as a golden age for tourism in Lebanon, and Beirut was often called the “Paris of the Middle East”; a playground for the rich and famous. But that was brought to an abrupt halt when civil war broke out in 1975. Then after years of steady recovery, and record numbers in 2010, a war in neighbouring Syria in 2011 hit the industry again.A diplomatic spat with Saudi Arabia led to the Kingdom banning its citizens from visiting Lebanon for more than a year from 2017, dealing another blow. But according to recent numbers, tourists are flocking to Beirut again.Nearly two million came in 2018, with Europeans and Americans accounting for more than half of that number.The Lebanese government has spent the past few years trying to diversify the industry to attract tourists from beyond the Gulf, and it appears to be working. It perhaps shouldn’t be a surprise then that the city now has its own hop-on/hop-off bus tour. Three double-decker City Sightseeing buses now prowl the city throughout the day, navigating Beirut’s notoriously traffic-ridden roads.Josh Eyre, visiting from London, is among the handful of tourists on board the bus on Friday. “I’m really enjoying it. It reminds me a bit of Tbilisi. Lots of snazzy new buildings up against lots of different architectural styles, historically. It’s an important cultural crossroads.” The tour takes in several cultural sites, including Lebanon’s national museum and the Mim Museum, home to one of the largest collections of minerals in the world.From the bus, you’ll see Roman ruins, churches and mosques, the city’s famous Pigeon Rocks and three malls. It lasts for two hours, when the traffic allows.“Beirut has 5,000 years of history. It has been rebuilt several times after earthquakes and wars, so there are so many hidden treasures in Beirut and we have to show them to the world,” says Viviane Nasr, who brought the franchise to the city.The buses were shipped from China, and the tours were launched last month, taking a loop around the edge of the city.Nasr hopes Beirut is starting to overcome the image troubles that have plagued it in the past.“Unfortunately, the media is very negative about Beirut. They think maybe Beirut is not safe.“But everyone who is coming here is having a lot of fun. And now they know this is a safe country,” she says.

    Extinction Rebellion postpones Heathrow flight disruption plans for the summer – but will use drones to close terminals for weeks

    Environmental activist group Extinction Rebellion has postponed its plan to halt flights at Heathrow for the summer – but has vowed to use drones to close the airport for a minimum of 16 days.The climate-change activists had initially planned to fly a swarm of drones in the Heathrow area on Tuesday 18 June and then from 1 to 10 July, unless the government met its demands.The Gatwick airport executive who handled the pre-Christmas closure caused by an unauthorised drone called on Extinction Rebellion to cancel its protest, and the Metropolitan Police warned that anyone endangering flights would face a life sentence.The organisation called accusations that Extinction Rebellion was willing to endanger life “a depressing and predictable smear”.It now says: “Extinction Rebellion will not be carrying out any actions at Heathrow airport in June or July this year, aimed at causing disruption to holidaymakers and those planning to use the airport in this period.“The Heathrow airport authorities will therefore not have to pause any summer flights.”But it has revealed plans to shut the airport for at least 16 days: “This action involves peacefully and openly flying drones at head height within the 5km exclusion zone around Heathrow as the airport authority will then stop all flights until the drone flying is stopped. There is nothing violent about flying drones when there are no flights in the air as it is perfectly safe. We are there first. The responsibility is with the airport authority to not initiate flights.”The airport is due to release details of its “master plan” for a third runway on 18 June.The group says: “The Heathrow third runway expansion is a grotesque violation of UK parliament’s recent declaration of the climate and environmental emergency. Government inaction compels us to act. This Heathrow action proposal opens up unique and major strategic possibilities. The peaceful use of drones leads to the closure of the airport.“No other tactic can create such decisive economic disruption with the same reliability while being completely safe.”Extinction Rebellion appears confident that it can close the busiest airport in Europe for a minimum of 16 days, disrupting the travel plans of at least 3.5 million passengers. It plans to give two months’ notice of the start date of the action to the airport – allowing Heathrow “to safely plan the closure of the airport for the duration of the action”. The group says the advance warning will give passengers “sufficient time to seek alternative travel arrangements.”A group of 415 protesters will be rostered to fly the drones, with around 30 acting each day.Extinction Rebellion suggests: “Drones can be painted pink, given names and personalised, etc.”The protesters say that on the day they will give at least one hour’s advance notice of the start of drone flights.“Drone use would start early in the morning (3am) before most night flights, which run 4.30-6am, and scheduled flights, which run from 6am-11.30pm. Whatever their prior announcement approach, they won’t initiate flights knowing drones are already in the air. Drone users would fly drones at regular intervals in order for there to be continual drone flights during the whole day to ensure no aircraft flights could take place.”The organisers would set up a hotline to enable drone activity to cease in the event of an emergency. Extinction Rebellion says the protesters would call the police after their drone use was completed for the day and wait to be arrested.The group says: “Those coming from white and middle class backgrounds will likely have different/better experiences of the criminal justice system, as compared to people of colour and of lower socio-economic status.”It adds: “There could also be more disruptive activities to help keep Heathrow closed such as swarming, roadblocks and occupations.”Laurence Taylor, deputy assistant commissioner of the Metropolitan Police said last week: “We are determined to play our part in keeping the airspace over London’s airports safe for the thousands of planes flying in and out every week. I want to be absolutely clear that anyone caught illegally using a drone can expect to be dealt with in line with the law.“The airport is part of our national infrastructure, and we will not allow the illegal activity of protestors to cause disruption and misery to thousands.”Boris Johnson, whose Uxbridge and South Ruislip constituency is close to Heathrow, pledged in 2015 to prevent the third runway going ahead. He said: “I will lie down with you in front of those bulldozers and stop the building, stop the construction of that third runway.”He is frontrunner to become prime minister. But cancelling the project would go against the government’s preferred option for expansion – and a large parliamentary majority in favour of the third runway.

    Alice Roberts: UK dragging its feet on recognition of humanist weddings

    Alice Roberts: ‘The government said a couple of years ago that it would make humanist weddings legal, but it has dragged its feet.’ Photograph: David Levenson/Getty Images The government is dragging its feet on legal recognition of humanist weddings despite growing demand for such ceremonies, the television scientist Alice Roberts has said. Roberts, who is president of Humanists UK, called for the process of changing the law to be accelerated. “More and more people are turning to a humanist way of marking the milestone events of life: the birth of a child, celebrating a marriage and remembering a loved one,” she said. “The government said a couple of years ago that it would make humanist weddings legal, but it has dragged its feet.” In Scotland, where humanist celebrants have been permitted to conduct weddings since 2005, there are more humanist weddings than weddings in the Church of Scotland and the Catholic church combined, she added. “The government needs to make this happen soon.” In England and Wales, couples opting for a humanist ceremony have to undergo a separate legal wedding in a registry office. Nevertheless, Humanists UK – of which Roberts is president – recorded an almost fourfold increase in such ceremonies between 2004 and 2012, while Church of England weddings fell by 28% and Catholic weddings by 34% in the same period. Roberts is anchoring a new online course, Humanist Lives, beginning next month, in which scientists, artists, politicians and campaigners explore humanist beliefs and values. “Humanism is much more than an absence of faith. It’s a positive belief in humanity and the power of rational inquiry; a framework for how to live your own life and create a better, fairer, more inclusive society,” said Roberts. “It would be helpful if humanism was more widely recognised. We are a largely non-religious society, with a very small number of people going to church every week – well under a million regular churchgoers in the C of E, fewer than members of the RSPB [Royal Society for the Protection of Birds]. “Yet we still have an established church in a diverse multicultural society, with reserved places for Anglican bishops in the House of Lords, and the C of E extending its reach and influence into education. It would be better if religion was not tied up with the state.” Roberts, a biological anthropologist and television presenter, grew up in a deeply religious family, but gave up going to church when she was 15. In recent months, she has been criticised for sending her children to a Church of England primary school, and her mother, a retired teacher, has publicly challenged her opposition to faith schools. “Like so many parents, I had no choice about where my children went to school,” she said. Her children did not get places at non-religious schools near her home, leaving no alternative to a faith school. “We want all local schools to be inclusive, community schools.” She also wants BBC Radio 4’s Thought for the Day to be opened up to humanists – and to be the first to present the item. “You can have a view on ethics and morals from a non-religious rational perspective. I get so frustrated when the religious and theological view of morals and ethics is privileged over non-religious perspectives. It’s deeply anachronistic.”

    Jimmy Carr review – a relentless wallow in grubbiness

    Rose Theatre, KingstonDespite occasional glimmers of subversive wit, Carr continues to rely on dubious jokes about dwarves, fat women and FGM. ‘Welcome to 90 minutes of your life you’re never getting back,” runs the caption at the start of Jimmy Carr’s touring show, Terribly Funny. That’s what you sign up for when you go to see Carr: a grubby pleasure that may be more grubby than pleasure. We know we shouldn’t. We’ll regret it afterwards. There’s certainly no deviation tonight from the formula that’s served Carr well – commercially if not always creatively – for 20 years: blue humour, playground abuse, jokes about rape and paedophilia, and (according to taste) just enough wit and joke-writing flair to keep the stench and squalor at bay. Who knows what need Carr’s comedy is meeting in some of us for jokes about dwarves, fat women and FGM? Carr’s closing apologia insists he doesn’t mean to hurt anyone, that his material is “joyful” in intent. And certainly there is some subversive joy in having humour applied to such subjects. Deep-rooted convention is destabilised when Carr appears to laugh at the Nazi extermination of Gypsies. We gasp at the flouted taboo, then laugh to recall that – here at least – there are no consequences. Or no immediate ones. But, even if you agree that all subjects are fair game for comedy, Carr’s relentless downward kicking (“Is a dwarf an abortion that made it?”) argues that jokes about lesbians, Gypsies and sexual violence aren’t just acceptable, but something – over two long hours – to revel in. Many of his one-liners are barely jokes at all, just boorish cliches about vegans being boring or Germany being humourless. And you can’t miss the “my mother-in-law” echoes in his battery of one-liners (some neat, all unlovely) that each begin, “My girlfriend …” By that stage, I wasn’t feeling the joy. But then, joy isn’t exclusively what Carr’s humour is about. It’s a mug’s game trying to parse other people’s laughter, but at some points – as with the applause that greets a weak joke championing the use of gendered sexual swearwords – there seems to be some free-at-last sense of escape at play from the liberal consensus on what we are and aren’t supposed to say. It’s immaterial to point out that Carr, like many other middle-aged male standups, broadcasters and columnists, has been saying this stuff for years and no one has censored or marginalised him yet. It doesn’t have to be this way. Carr is perfectly capable of joking across wider territory – as with the pert gag about Meghan Markle’s feminism. I did find this show a little funnier than its recent predecessors – the quality of the wordplay a mite higher, the thuggishness less relentless. Carr even briefly parks the trademark one-liners and tries his hand at observational comedy, although the routine – about how rubbish old tech (Blockbuster video, Yellow Pages) looks in contrast to the new – treads familiar standup ground. As with previous shows, there are vox pops, too, when the audience volunteer their own words for vagina and female masturbation. The results are not elevating. But elevation’s not what we’re here for. Carr has cornered the blue-humour market, delivering sordid comedy with relentless efficiency to people who find more joy in that than I do. And he shows no signs of surrendering it. . At Buxton Opera House, 18 June; Floral Pavilion, New Brighton, 19 June; then touring.

And her strong wit and embindass /emattitude is a perfect resemblance of Saif39;s side of genes. We remember how once in an interview, she had revealed that she is happy that her parents got divorced, instead of sticking together for the sake of their kids.
