Pictures of Sonakshi Sinha enjoying her vacations in Singapore

Sonakshi Sinha is enjoying her vacation in Singapore with her girl friends. The stunning actor has been sharing several pictures and videos on her Instagram page.

 

A few hours back, Sona shared a gorgeous candid picture of hers where she was seen enjoying the serene beauty of the sea. She wore a white sheer dress with a thigh-high slit which has a halter neckline and a crisscross back.

 

Sonakshi captioned the picture on Instagram stating, “Singapore sunsets….  #sonastravels”

 

 

 

 

Currently, Sonakshi is riding high on the success of her latest film Ittefaq. The suspense thriller also stars Siddharth Malhotra and Akshaye Khanna in the lead and has impressed the audience as well as the critics. The film is directed by debutant Abhay Chopra and produced by Red Chillies Entertainment, Dharma Productions and B.R. Films.

 

The makers of Ittefaq opted for a no-promotion strategy for the film to keep up with the suspense of the film. When Sonakshi was asked about the same by a leading media agency, she said, “It was a refreshing change for me to not promote the film before its release. At times, I think, at least for me, promoting the film is (more) challenging than performing in it. On the other hand, promotion and marketing are such a huge investment. This kind of no-promotion strategy saves money.”

The talented actor will next be seen in Happy Bhag Jayegi Returns. Talking about the film, she stated, “I am so happy playing a Punjabi girl in the film. You know my father is a Bihari and my mother is a Sindhi, but I am Punjabi in my head… So, playing a Punjabi on screen is so much fun.”

Singapore Braces For First Ever Female President, That Too–A Hijab-Wearing Muslim Woman

Singapore is all set to welcome its first ever female and Muslim President in more than 47 years that too- a hijab-wearing Malay woman named Halimah Yacob. The 63-years-old politician had been Speaker of Singapore Parliament until August this year. She will take over the top post on Thursday as she is the only candidate in the fray.

Singapore gets the first female President without a vote who meets all necessary qualifications for Presidency regulated by Singaporean Election Department. She is set to win the Presidency via a walk-over after been declared the only eligible candidate for the office on 11 September 2017. It was declared that she will be the eight President “shortly after nominations close at noon on Wednesday” on 13 September 2017.

Following the nomination, Yacob said on Monday “I can only say that I promise to do the best that I can serve the people of Singapore and that doesn’t change whether there is an election or no election.” Further, she says “I believe President’s role is to act as a unifying force. Obviously, there is a work that I have to do, but the most important thing for me is I would like Singaporeans to work together with me.”

Halimah Binti Yacob is a Singaporean politician of paternal Indian and maternal Malay descent and she was the ninth Speaker of Parliament, from January 2013 to August 2017. She was the first woman to hold this post in Republic`s history. Halimah is married to Mohammed Abdullah Allabshee, of Arab descent with five children. She did her graduation from the University of Singapore with a law degree.

It’s a defining moment for a country that a hijab wearing women is going to embark her President journey in Singapore.

In Singapore, the Prime Minister is the most powerful political leader and head of the executive who is responsible for running administration, while the President’s role is largely ceremonial. However, the president holds some important responsibilities, such as the ability to block key public-sector appointments, investigate allegations of corruption, and appoint a prime minister.

Which Developed Country has a Cashless Economy ? Singapore, US ?, Thunders P Chidambaram

Slamming the government’s much-vaunted demonetization move and the sluggish progress towards a “cashless economy”, former Finance Minister P. Chidambaram, at a presser organized at the Congress party headquarters today came down heavily on the Modi sarkar today.

He asked a pointed question- in which developed country- has a demonetization move not bombed ? The US, Singa[ore, Japan- none of these countries have ever experimented with such a disastrous economic move, he asserted. Those countries which have, are crippled by severely underdeveloped economies, he asserted, while taking the examples of Ghana, Greece, Congo and the Soviet Union. Britain is the only country where a part-demonetization move ever succeeded, that too partially.

P.C. also recounted and described how the government’s aspiration of “cashless” has left a trail of destruction and suffering in its wake- the economy is severely starved of cash, and the poor, marginalized and unorganized sector workers have been the hardest hit. The middle –class hasn’t been spared the travails either, he asserted.
Citing an opinion column he authored in the newspaper Indian Express on 20 November this year, PC also criticized how the government’s move was shrouded in secrecy- the Chief Economic Advisor was not taken into confidence before Modi’s 8 November announcement; and how the government, in one fell swoop, turned back on its decision regarding the exchange of old currency notes which no longer are valid legal tender.

He also did not omit to mention how the entire scheme has become a vehicle of money-laundering for the reach and powerful, with massive rackets being unraveled every other day.
