English Vinglish truly marks the rebirth of a star 'Sridevi' who has returned to film industry after 15 years at the age of 49. In her heydays of the eighties she ruled Bollywood, Kollywood, Tollywood  often driving films to blockbuster status without bothering who the hero was. The movie has been directed by Debutant writer-filmmaker Gauri Shinde.


The movie is about the story of Sashi (Sridevi), a middle-aged Maharashtrian housewife who earns her own money by making sumptuous ladoos and selling them to the experts. Sashi is ridiculed for their poor linguistic skills by their English speaking family. Sashi finds herself as an object of potshots by her husband (Adil Hussain), who has little respect for her real talent and her 7th grade daughter who feels ashamed to even introduce her mother to her school folks. Sashi flies off to New York to lend a helping hand at her niece’s wedding where she smartly grabs the opportunity to enroll herself into English speaking classes. In no time, Sashi becomes the most committed student in her class and starts watching English movies to improve her English reading and writing skills. She does everything more significantly to earn respect that she duly deserves from her family. In her pursuit of literature, she finds her classmate, a Frenchman (Mehdi Nebbou) getting attracted to her plain simple personality. Despite several barriers, Sashi manages to achieve her goal.

Sridevi is so charming and hats off to her for the awesome performance. She has not acted but lived as Sashi with the right portions of susceptibility, control, and quiet strength, delivering a performance that is nothing short of perfect. With the meaty role in ‘English Vinglish’ after 15 years, post watching the film, I have just one word for the actress - FLAWLESS! 

‘English Vinglish’  film is a poignant dollop. No doubt, the film leaves you with a big smile on your face. There's also a delightful cameo by Amitabh Bachchan for Hindi and by Ajit Kumar for South Indian languages. Both the actors are good at stealing the scene with flawless comic timing. Overall, ‘English Vinglish’ is a complete family entertainer and worth every penny! Yes, Sridevi is back!

West Indies sealed the ICC World Twenty20 crown with a comfortable 36-run victory in the final match against Sri Lanka. It the West Indies' first world title after a gap of 33 years having won the ODI World Cup back in 1979. Batting first in front a 35,000 enthusiastic crowd, Caribbeans scored only 32 runs off the first 10 overs. With the powerful hitter Gayle in opening position, the powerplay yielded only 14 runs for West Indies due to brilliant effort by Sri Lanka’s unorthodox spinner Ajantha Mendis who grabbed four wickets for 12 runs. Samuels played one of the most memorable innings under pressure with a heroic 78 off 56 balls to steer West Indies to 137 for six. He hits 6 sixes off T20 specialist Lasith Malinga's bowling where almost every other batsman struggled. With the strong batting lineup, it was not a difficult score to chase but still they lost the match by 36 runs as they were bundled out for 101 runs. For Sri Lanka and Mahela Jayawardene, it was another case of 'so-near-yet-so-far' having now lost four World Cup finals (two 50 overs and two T20s) across two categories. A sense of sadness surely spread from Colombo throughout Sri Lanka on Sunday night. Mahela Jayawardene stepped down as T20 captain after the final.

Gayle and his teammates bring such uncontrolled happiness to the sport with the way the celebrated after winning the world cup. An ecstatic West Indies team did the 'Gangnam Style' dance after defeating Sri Lanka. Accidently it was birthday boy Dwayne Bravo who prompted the celebrations after catching Lasith Malinga on the boundary to end the Sri Lankan innings. He was joined by his teammates and coaching staff, sprinting onto the pitch from the sidelines, for celebrations that would go into the next day and no doubt beyond.This is a team that loves to have fun almost as much as it loves to play cricket. There’s always a smile on the faces of the West Indies players with the team full of wonderful people like Chris Gayle, the man who adopted the global hit  “Gangnam-style” dance from South Korean rapper Psy – throughout this tournament.

There are a certain things that you probably never knew what your mobile phone could do in times of emergencies. Your mobile phone can actually be a life saver or an emergency tool for survival.

Emergency #
The Emergency Number worldwide for Mobile is 112. If you find yourself out of the coverage area of your mobile network and you can dial 112 in case of emergency; the mobile will search any existing network to establish the connection for you and interestingly this number 112 can be dialed even if the keypad is locked.

Have you locked your keys in the car?
Does your car have remote keyless entry? This may come in handy when you lock your keys in the car and the spare keys are at home. Hold your cell phone about a foot from your car door and have the person at your home press the unlock button, holding it near the mobile phone. Your car door will get unlocked. Distance doesn’t matter at all.

Hidden Battery Power
If your mobile battery is very low, press the keys *3370# to activate hidden Battery Power. Your mobile will restart with this reserve and the instrument will show a 50% increase in battery. This reserve will get charged when you charge your mobile next time.

How to disable a STOLEN mobile phone
To check your mobile phone's serial number, type the following digits on your phone!: * # 0 6 #, a 15 digit code will appear on the screen. This number is unique to your handset. Write it down and keep it somewhere safe. When your phone gets stolen, you can phone your service provider and give them this code. They will then be able to block your handset so even if the thief changes the SIM card, your phone will be totally useless. You probably won't get your phone back, but at least you know that whoever stole it can't use/sell it either. If everybody does this, there would be no point in people stealing mobile phones.
