A young child is the first survivor to be hauled from the Indian Ocean following the crash of a Yemenia Airways flight in the Comoros earlier today.Captain Abdulkhalek al-Kadi, chairman of Yemenia Airways said, “one child is alive and we hope to find more. The child was found in the waters and was taken to a hospital". A reconnaissance plane had earlier spotted traces of the Airbus A310-300 in the sea near the town of Mitsamiouli.Prior to the child being found there are a few bodies floating and there is a lot of debris floating around.The ill-fated flight had crashed as the plane approached the Hahaya airport in Moroni. The plane tried but failed to land and then performed a U-turn before it crashed.Yemenia Air officials said the plane had 142 passengers, including three infants, and 11 crew members on board.

Ibrahim Kassim, an official with the Agency for Aviation Security and Navigation in Africa (Asecna), the regional air security body, said, search and rescue planes had spotted debris and bodies at the crash site, 5-10km (3-6miles) from the coast along its landing approach.The deputy general manager said, “the weather conditions were rough… strong wind and high seas. The wind speed recorded on land at the airport was 61 kilometres (38miles) an hour. There could be other factors.” It is the second Airbus to plunge into the sea this month.On June 1, an Air France Airbus A330-200 crashed into the Atlantic Ocean killing all 228 people on board.

Everyone is in shock over the news that Prabudeva and Nayantara have eloped and got married. This piece of rumor has left media, fans in shock!! Really, this is turning to be the worst amongst all of affairs. Prabudeva, father of three children (Recently one passed away) is in love with Nayanthara, the leading actress. That sounds quite absurd but you’ve got to believe. Although it was earlier considered to be rumors, certain channels of outside Tamil Nadu have confirmed it. Recently its known that Nayan tatooed Prabu on her arm(P in English and rabu in Tamil) in Hyderabad. Sources close to the actress say that “they may be in love, but marriage is not on the cards in the near future as they are both highly professional people who are concerned about their respective careers.” Both the actors were not reachable on their mobile phones which added fuel to the already burning fire. ‘Nothing is Impossible’ is the formula of life while ‘Everything is possible in affairs’ happens to be more in tinsel town. Enna koduma sir ithu???

Michael Jackson was born on August 29 in Gary, Indiana, 1958. His father, Joseph Jackson, was a guitarist. In the early 60s,Jackie had began performing around the city. A musical prodigy, Michael's singing talents were amazingly mature and he soon became the dominant voice and focus of The Jackson 5. In 1979, Michael released his first solo album with the support of producer Quincy Jones. This was Off the Wall, featuring songs like Don't stop till you get enough. The album had four songs in the Us Top 10 hits.1979 was also the year when Jackson had his first rhinoplasty following a fall during a concert. Among his multiple surgeries, Michael Jackson had a total of four rhinoplasties, as he was never quite satisfied with his nose after his fall in 1979.

The biggest year in Jackson's life was 1982, when he released the albumThriller. The album held its position in the top 10 of the Billboard 200 for 80 straight weeks and nearly half that time it remained on the number one position.. Jackson won eight Grammy Awards for that album.In 1983, Jackson did his famous moonwalk for the first time. He did it for a live performance for the stages how Motown 25: Yesterday, Today, Forever.

It was in the 80s itself that Jackson says he was hit by diseases like Vitiligo and Lupus that made his skin lighter. Some doctors claim that Jackson suffers from body dysmorphic disorder that a mental disorder that disables the patient from making a connection with his mirror image. It is a result of this, doctors say, that he feels the need to change his appearance repeatedly.

In 1987, Jackson released the album Bad, which also became a superhit and topped the charts for weeks. Songs like Bad, The way you make me feeland Dirty Diana were featured on this album. In 1991, Jackson released Dangerous with songs like Black or white, andRemember the time.

One of the worst years in Jackson's life was perhaps 1993 when he was accused on sexually abusing a child called Jordan Chandler. Jackson's mental and physical health took a terrible turn ever since the child molestation charges. He got addicted to painkillers and even illegal drugs. It was around this time that he got married to Lisa Marie Presley. The two divorced two years later.

In 1995, Jackson released HIStory: Past, Present and Future, Book I. and in 1997, Blood on the Dance Floor.Also in 1997, Jackson married for a second time. His second wife was a nurse by profession, named Deborah Jeanne Rowe. Together they have two children. The couple divorced in 1999 and Rowe gave Jackson full custody of the kids. In 2002, Jackson had a third child whose mother is unknown. Jackson claims that the child is a result of artificial insemination.

Sadly, in 2003, stories of child molestation came back to haunt him as he was charged with seven counts of sexual abuse against children.. He was finally acquitted of all charges in 2005.In 2008, Michael announced that he has converted to Islam in a ceremony officiated by an Imam where he pledged his allegiance to The Koran. In 2009, Michael decided to announce a grand comeback tour, under which he will travel across the world. Show tickets were sold-out within the hour of releasing.It is also confirmed that Jackson now has the initial stages of skin cancer, which is treatable.One of the few artists to have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice, his other achievements include multiple Guinness World Records including one for Thriller as the world's best-selling album 13 Grammy Awards.

Despite all the controversies, Michael Jackson's skills as a singer, dancer, writer and businessman remain unparalleled. And that's what makes him a legendary artist. “Thank you Jack for all the thrills you have given us over the years..rest in peace and know you are loved. Unquestionably you are the bjggest pop star of the era”


It is a tragic day for the world of music as King of Pop Michael Jackson died of cardiac arrest at 3 am (IST) in Los Angeles.Paramedics were called to the his home around midday local time after he suffered a suspected cardiac arrest. He was rushed by an ambulance to a medical centre, while several US media outlets started saying that the 50-year-old star has died.He has had a history of health problems because of which he could not do any concert in 12 years.Crowds had begun to gather outside the hospital. Really it’s a sad for his fans. Jackson began his career as a child in his family group The Jackson 5. He then went on to achieve global fame as a solo artist with smash hits such as Thriller and Bad. But the singer had been dogged by controversy and money trouble in recent years, becoming a virtual recluse. Known as the "King of Pop," for hits that includedThriller and Billie Jean, Jackson's dramatic, one-gloved stage presence and innovative dance moves were imitated by legions of fans around the world.His lifetime record sales tally was believed to be around 750 million, and with his 13 Grammy Awards and boundary-breaking music videos he was one of the most successful entertainers of all time. He is still living thru his music in everyone's heart.Long live his legacy.He's been true inspiration to the world, who carried music on his shoulder. Will surely miss his moonwalks.

Younis Khan announces his retirement from Twenty20 internationals. Younis' final act in Twenty20 international cricket was to lift the trophy that so narrowly evaded Pakistan two years prior. It is likely Shahid Afridi, Misbah-ul-Haq and Kamran Akmal will be the leading candidates as 20-over captain. "This is my last Twenty20 game," he said at the conclusion of his press conference. "I'm old now for this kind of cricket."

Younis will continue to play Test and ODI cricket, and hopes he will again have the opportunity to lead his national team on home soil. Younis has previously warned that the absence of international cricket could kill the game in Pakistan, "I am requesting to all of the countries: 'You must come to Pakistan. Everybody knows law and order is not good but it is not our fault. Especially for youngsters, we need home series because everywhere there is no cricket in Pakistan. How can we motivate the youngsters.How can we promote cricket to our youngsters if there is no international game in Pakistan? How can I motivate my son and my neighbours' small children? That's why we need cricket in PakistanI think sports should be away from politics."

He also added that "I'm the second Khan winning a World Cup for Pakistan, so I'm very proud of my Khans," said Younis. "This is my dream. I dreamed all the time of lifting the World Cup. My thinking in all my career is that I will be remembered for a team like 1992. I was not in the Imran Khan team, and this is a dream come true. I'm really happy. Though this World Cup is Twenty20, at least we won our second World Cup. This is a gift to our whole nation."

Younis dedicated Pakistan's World Twenty20 triumph to his former coach Bob Woolmer, who died during the 2007 World Cup in the Caribbean.Well done Younis. Your country will be proud of you. You chose the right moment for everything! Hats off. Like you said yourself - keep politics away from Sports. You've won the world cup - Congratulations on that - but keep it to that. Dont try to turn it around and use the stage to make a "political" speech.


The big entertainment has come to an end and finally the Pakistan men crowned as the champions of 2009 T20 world cup. The same team lost the thrilling final match to India in the inaugural world cup in 2007. This is no Cinderella story. This is about the ugly sister who woke up to find that she had a glass slipper on her feet. Remember that this is the team that has no home series to look forward to in the foreseeable future, the country that had the ICC Champions Trophy taken away from it and given to South Africa. These are the players who were prevented from playing in the IPL, and the same side that was annihilated by South Africa and India in warm-up matches. But less than three weeks on, they are champions of the world. Their fans, who have had to put up with so much over the past few years and whose support has been so steadfast and magnificent, deserve this perhaps more than the players do. This was their moment, one that they won't ever forget. Razzak, Afridi, Akmal, Younis, Gul were their key players in this victory. They were well supported by the other men in the team. They feel that this victory is a bit bigger than 1992 WC. I confess that i am not usually one to cheer for Pakistan in a cricket match. But it was great to see them pick up the tournament win. Not only did Pakistan win - but I think there a great boost for a country that is in some trying times and for the game of cricket as a whole. As an Indian I am so happy to see our brothers pick up the title.Kudos to Afridi and Pak team.At the end of the day some releif and joy for my brothers and sisters in Pak. Hope this triumph will change the overall attitude towards Pak and it's cricket.

After all the anticipation the first women's World Twenty20 final was somewhat of an anti-climax but in the end England prevailed to become Twenty20 champions at Lord's. England have become the first international side of either gender to be champions in all three formats. England have done that but more importantly proved through this tournament that Twenty20 suited to women and can be a format used to make the game more popular. England captain Charlotte Edwards admitted they had a far easier win than they expected. We're just delighted. We came back from the World Cup and we wanted this trophy and now we've got it to show the 50-over wasn't a fluke." Claire Taylor, the Player of the Tournament, hit the winning runs. She ended one run short of being the leading run-getter. This is the second time in three months that England have beaten New Zealand in a World Cup final and future encounters between the two sides will be just the more gripping to watch. They have beaten world No. 2 New Zealand seven times in their last meetings, while India, the third-best in the world, have been their whipping girls for several years.

Women's cricket has arrived on the world stage, and nobody tried to boo them off. Rather, they applauded a surprisingly entertaining new act which represented good value for money, and has the chance to shine again in the future.With the format to be repeated next year in the Caribbean, the ICC can both breathe a sigh of relief at the successful staging this time around, but also give itself a pat on the back.

Indians' money - 70,00,000 Crores Rupees in Swiss Bank
* Yes, 70 lakhs crores rupees of India are lying inSwitzerland banks.This is the huge black amount parked in foreign Bank, as India is the champion of Black Money among all 180 countries of the world.
* German Government officially wrote a letter to Indian Government that they (German Government) are willing to inform the details of holders of 70 lakh crore rupees in foreign Banks, if Indian Government officially asks them.
* On 22nd May, 2008, this news already published in The Times of India and other Newspapers based on German Government's official letter to Indian Government.
* But the Indian Government did not send any official enquiry to Germany for details of said money which are sent outside India between 1947 to 2008. The opposition party is also equally notinterested in doing so because most of the amount is owned by these dirty, sinful and traitor politicians.
* This money belongs to our country. From these funds we can repay 13 times of our country's foreign debt. The interest alone can take care of the Center's yearly budget. People need not pay any taxes and we can pay Rs. 1 lakh to each of 45 crore poor families.
* Let us imagine, if Swiss Bank is holding Rs. 70lakh crores, then how much money is deposited in other this kind of 69 Banks in foreign? How much they have deprived the Indian people after freedom? More over if the account holder dies the Bank become the owner of the funds in his account.
* Are these people totally ignorant about the philosophy of Karma? What will this ill-gotten wealth do to them and their families when they own/use such corrupted and sinful money ? It will ruin their family and their future generation.
* On 20th February, 2009 the American President Mr. Barack Obama has exerted immense pressure on USB Bank to disclose the details of deposits by tax evading/corrupt Americans in this Bank. He has taken this step even at the risk to his life. On the other hand, our political leaders have not taken any action despite lapse of 8 long months. The Opposition Parties also are not interested. Why?
* Now the Communist Party of India has demanded on 23rd February, 2009 that the Government must inquire into these illegal deposits of Indians in foreign Banks. This is widely reported in the Press and is now a well known fact.
* The issue of illegal deposits in Foreign Banks has had world-wide coverage in the media.. People have read it also. However, disheartened and frustrated people have neither courage nor time to do anything. Nonetheless this is a struggle no less important than our freedom struggle. Only difference is that this struggle is against the corrupt native British of our own country.
* As a service to our motherland please circulate this note among your friends to convert it into a mass movement.
