Know some interesting facts about legendary boxer Muhammad Ali as he turns 77

On January 17, the sports world remembers one of the greatest boxers in history – Muhammad Ali. Who was born on 17th January in 1942 at Louisville, Kentucky. Ali, who was dubbed ‘the Greatest’, won the world heavyweight championship on three separate occasions and successfully defended his title 19 times. He posted an impressive record of 56 wins against five losses, including 37 knockouts, before retiring from the sport in 1981 at the age of 39.

How did Muhammed Ali become boxer?

His father gifted a bicycle to Mohammad Ali. He used to roam his new gift bicycle all day long. But one day it happened that his bicycle was stolen. 12-year-old Ali told the police that he wouldn’t keep the thief alive and asked the police to punish the thief. They had a domestic connection with the police officer. The policeman told him that if you start boxing then only you can take revenge. Since then, he started practicing boxing. The police officer himself wrote in a book that Muhammed Ali made boxing his obsession to punish the thief.

Muhammed Ali was not just a boxer, but he also had a passion for fighting against the evils of society. He wanted to crush the racial mentality in American society. This was the reason why he became Muhammed Ali from Cassius Clay. Once he was refused a table in a restaurant and in lieu of revenge, Ali threw his gold medal. This incidence in his life made him the hater of Christianity and racial differences. Finally, in 1964 he accepted Islam. In the same year in 1964, he publicly embraced Islam. After accepting Islam he changed his name from Cassius Clay to Muhammad Ali. With the same name, he became the three-time heavyweight champion. He gave many memorable quotes like “If my mind can conceive it, and my heart can believe it—then I can achieve it”.

Happiness lies in creating of your own. Gauri Khan is one of the examples of this. Gauri made her own mark in spite of a superstar husband and formed her famous Gauri Khan Designs. Coming from a basic ordinary childhood, the star wife of Shah Rukh Khan, Gauri was brought up in a joint family.  Though she is reaping the benefits of her labour as she was recently mentioned on Fortune magazine’s top 50 Most Powerful Women in Business in India.

Shah Rukh Khan’s wife Gauri Khan has been unstoppable. Even though the mother of three might not be in the limelight, she surely has a knack to steal the spotlight without acting in a single movie. Through her interior designing work, Gauri has made a name that shows her creativity and her work while highlighting how she skillfully embraces her passion.

However, it’s not all roses for the star wife. In an old video where fashion designers Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla had started a series of First Ladies with Abu-Sandeep, they asked her if there was something she didn’t like about being a star wife and she said, “People always have questions about Shah Rukh.” With the massive fan following SRK enjoys globally, it is only relevant how Gauri would have to answer all questions about him.

Watch the video below…

Gauri Khan is also the producer and co-owner of Red Chillies Entertainment. Meanwhile, Shah Rukh Khan will be seen in Aanand L Rai’s Zero co-starring  Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma. The film is set to release on December 21.

It is none other than Soha Ali Khan and Kunal Kemmu’s little bundle of joy Inaaya Naumi Kemmu, who is turned into 1 year today with her little baby step which is so adorable that you can’t take off your eyes.

Kids taking baby steps is always a delight to watch and this recent bunch of pictures are turning out to be no different. I mean, one look at it and you will know what we are trying to say. Soha Ali Khan and Kunal Kemmu’s little bundle of joy Inaaya Naumi Kemmu, who’s turned 1 today, was just spotted walking for the first time ever, with the help of her nannies.

In case you didn’t know, Inaaya is 9 months younger than Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan’s ‘Gunda’ baby Taimur Ali Khan. He’ll be turning 2 this December 20 which precisely explains he is comparatively naughtier than Inaaya. That way Inaaya also doesn’t really like the shutterbugs considering her grumpy expressions the moment she sees him, unlike Taimur who can’t stop waving and smiling at them.

When Soha was asked about Taimur and Inaaya’s bonding, she had said, “Inaaya and Taimur enjoy each other’s company — he’s very curious and he keeps watching her. Sometimes the two will hold hands or touch each other’s faces.”

Stupendous ever birthday bonanza of Gandhi

A lanky figure with a pair of glasses, a bald head, dhoti wrapped around his waist and a walking stick as firm as his clear intentions; this is adequate to let one articulate of whom we are speaking about. Yes the history maker, Mahatma Gandhi is in the headlines again for his adherence to the principles of truth and non-violence.

To celebrate Gandhi’s sesquicentennial birthday, a committee greets dignitaries across the globe. Leaders assembled to discuss how India should commemorate the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi both nationwide and internationally. This includes the former UN secretaries-general Kofi Annan and Ban-Ki-Moon and ex-US vice-president Al Gore.

Heading the committee, Prime Minister Narendra Modi added 11 foreign dignitaries including 150 Indians to this national committee which was set up last month.

The UN General Assembly had in 2007 declared Gandhi’s birth anniversary as the International Day of Non-Violence. The government has prompted such a measure taking care of Gandhi’s international prominence.

From South Africa, where Mahatma Gandhi spent his early years comes the Nobel Peace Prize winner, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, the African to hold the position of Bishop of Johannesburg and Archbishop of Cape Town and fought a long battle against apartheid.

The committee also embraces the Former Japanese Prime Minister Yoshiro Mori and the Goan origin Portugal Prime Minister Antonio Costa also recognized as ‘Lisbon’s Gandhi.’

Apart from Gore, the first Hindu member of the US Congress, Tulsi Gabbard and the long-time US peace activist Bernie Meyer also known as ‘The American Gandhi’ has also been included in the committee. Meyer who is known for wearing a dhoti, carries a walking stick to emulate Gandhi during his tours of the US, UK and Canada.

To propagate Mahatma’s message, October witnessed a 150-member national committee set up under Modi’s chairmanship, to decide on how Gandhi’s 150th anniversary should be celebrated.
The Committee included the chief ministers of all states, representatives from across the political spectrum, Gandhians, thinkers and eminent persons from all walks of life.

Nominated multiple times for Nobel Peace Prize including his assassinated year of 1948, Gandhi never received the award but the Nobel committee opted not to bestow him with the award posthumously. Instead, the committee announced there was “no suitable living candidate” that year and no winner was named.

The 14th Dalai Lama, called his award a tribute to “my mentor, Mahatma Gandhi.” In 2006, the Nobel committee publicly expressed regret that Gandhi had never been given the prize.

The convex features in his face clearly stand out with a clear understanding of what needs to get attained in his life. Banishing untouchability, Gandhi got his start as an activist in South Africa. His travel to South Africa in 1893 encountered frequent discrimination and those mistreat prompted him to begin campaigning for the civil rights of Indians in South Africa and eventually developed the concept of Satyagraha in his home nation.

At his behest, the countrymen were ready to embrace the deathbed for freedom struggle and the multiple imprisonments turned him into a transformative figure.

Gandhi sesquicentennial committee greets global dignitaries to commemorate the birth anniversary of this world-renowned personality.

This Mirzapur Government School Turns Into A ‘Dance Bar’ For Village Head’s Birthday

A government primary school in a Mirzapur village in Eastern Uttar Pradesh turned into a dance party venue on the night of Rakshabandhan when relatives of the local village head apparently decided to celebrate a birthday party.

The school at Tetraihiya Kala Khurd in Jamalpur was closed on Monday due to the festival. When teachers reached on Tuesday, they found the premises littered.

Locals told them that it was the result of a party organised by village head Ramkesh Yadav’s family.

Assistant teacher Ashok Kumar informed the Basic Shiksha Adhikari Praveen Kumar Tiwari about the incident. Tiwari instructed a block education officer (BEO) to carry out a probe in the matter.

“Assistant teacher Ashok Kumar informed me that village head Ramkesh Yadav organised a dance party on school premises. It is a very serious and highly objectionable move. The BEO has been asked to prepare a detailed report on the matter,” Tiwari told Hindustan Times on a phone call.

Tiwari said that the report with a request for action against the village head will be submitted to the district magistrate and the chief development officer.

Ramkesh Yadav, the village head, accepted that a party was organised but denied attending. He said that he went to a relative’s house in a nearby village.

Though she exuded confidence in her latest post, Rodriguez has been vocal in the past about her feelings on body image issues in Hollywood. “Healthy is to each his own,” she told ELLE in 2016. “You have to know your body. You can’t compare yourself to somebody else. It’s what’s best for you. Not what’s best for so-and-so on the cover of this magazine or of the girl on the TV show. Nah. Stop. They do not walk with you. They do not walk with you. You walk with you. You know? It’s a constant conversation. Insecurities don’t go away just because you’ve ‘arrived.'”

Video Alert: Check Out How Salman Khan Wishes His Close Friend Katrina Kaif On Her Birthday!

Salman Khan is the sweetest friend, that’s for sure! He just proved how much he values Katrina Kaif. The actor did something very special for her at IIFA Awards 2017 and luckily, we have a footage of the same. So during the press conference the superstar had stated that he has planned something for the actress’ birthday. While we did expect the organizers to bring a cake, make her cut it and do stuff like that. Little did we know that Khan’s plan was much better than this. the actor dedicated a song to his ex-girlfriend! He actually danced to one of their songs as he dedicated it to her. We know how every awards show comes to an end with a Khan performance, right? That’s exactly what happened this time also. But this time there was a twist. He performed on Jag Ghoomeya from and in the middle of the act, the track changed to ‘Just Chill’ song from Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya. Salman too sang the chorus and said, “Soniya, Tiger Abhi Zinda Hai” and then started dancing to the tunes of Mashalla from Ek Tha Tiger!

Is he the best or what? The act was totally meant for his special friend as he even gestured towards her as he performed. This man is certainly one of the cutest friends, we’d say. We already saw the way they mingled during the press con too. Many fans might be hoping for a cupid to strike these two again. We, on the other hand, are just too overwhelmed by this sweet act. He really is the kind of every one of us should have in our lives!
