Hi friends..Recently i got a chance to visit kerela and i felt very happy and the luckiest person too as i had a chance to look at the snake boat race-a traditional and interesting sport even we can say as festival there. I collected some information that the snake boat races in Kerala are the outstanding events that brings alive the calm backwaters. It is held in connection with Onam, the harvest festival in August-September. It is the largest team sport in the world and lead by colourful water parades. Thousands of people gather at lakes to cheer the huge black crafts as they slice through the waters to a spectacular finish. One of the oldest and most popular boat races in Kerala is Champakulam Moolam Boat Race which is connected to Sree Krishna Temple at Ambalappuzha. This race is conducted on Champakulam Lake on the moolam day of Midhunam, the Malayalam month. Some of the boat races held during the months of August–September are Rajiv Gandhi Boat Race, ATDC Boat Race, Neerettupuram Boat Race, Kumarakom Arpookara Vanitha Jalamela, Karuvatta Boat Race, Thazhathangadi Boat Race, Kottayam Mahatma Boat Race and Kumaranasan Smaraka Jalotsavam. Indira Gandhi Boat Race is held on the Ernakulam Lake during the Cochin Carnival in December last week. I hope you like it and will bring you many interesting facts later...

Unemployment is the hot topic prevails on most og the people of all ages. I read in article that it is at all time high in U.K as there was an increase of 281,000 in the number of unemployed people in three months to May. According to the Office of National Statistics, there are 2.38 million unemployed people in U.K. This is the highest unemployment in U.K. in more than 10 years with unemployment rate hitting 7.6%. The degree of the problem becomes more visible when we see an increase of 23,800, in the month of June, in the number of people who are taking unemployment benefits.
Highest unemployment growth has been in the group of young people. With 726,000 unemployed young people, this is the highest unemployment since last 16 years for young people. Another concern is that the number of young people out of work for over a year has gone up to 528,000, highest in last 11 years. I thinh this problem will get solved soon as lot of steps have been taken by US president that helps people staying all over the world. Lets wait and watch...

Hi friends.. This is the trailer video of a legendary film-Maruthanayagam which was conceived by Kamal Haasan after his vivid research from the pages of ancient history. The film was launched by Queen Elizabeth before few years and Kamal Haasan was on seventh cloud with extreme happiness. But due to financial constraints, producers of the film backed off and the project got shelved. After many many years now, Kamal Haasan gets new hopes with India-UK Film Corporation getting collaborated. The agreement was signed between British Government and various Countries where talented filmmakers are unable to produce their works. This treaty will not alone turn dream projects into reality but get them sold internationally by making western countries aware about those projects. So, when ‘Marmayogi’ dropped off, it’s ‘Maruthanayagam’ brimming him up with more hopes.

Deepika Padukone recently faced defeat at the hands of Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan. No, it wasn’t a box-office face off or even a war of words. The actors played a badminton match against each other at the Cricket Club of India (CCI) last week. Padukone teamed up with her father, badminton pro Prakash Padukone, and Aamir partnered with badminton player Aparna Popat, at an exhibition game before the final of the Tata Open Badminton Tournament. Though it was a close match, Aamir and Aparna bagged the win. But Deepika wasn’t upset.
For the 23-year-old actress, success and failure are all part of the game. The daughter of a badminton ace, Deepika feels that her background has equipped her to balance the highs and lows in the film industry. “I know how to deal with success and failure. I have learnt this as a sportsperson myself and from my father,” Deepika said. She added “she does not regret making her relationship with Ranbir Kapoor public. If you deny or accept that you are a couple, there is a problem. But we have learnt to keep details of our relationship private. Speculation and controversies are other side of being an actor”.
