Arjun Kapoor, Malaika AroraVarinder ChawlaArjun Kapoor and Malaika Arora have been painting the town red with their romance and their several public outings have sparked rumours of their impending wedding which believe that it will happen this year. So when Arjun was asked about the marriage speculations with Malaika, he cleared the air saying that he’s not getting married his ladylove.Revealing the reason why Arjun is not marrying Malaika, the actor told Mumbai Mirror, “Usually men lose hair after getting married and not before (laughs). To put things in perspective, as an actor, why would I want to get married when I am sporting a bald look? There would be pictures of it everywhere! On a serious note, I am not getting married. I have not hidden anything from anyone and I think my personal life deserves respect and dignity for that.”Arjun further said that he is happy in his life and doesn’t want to add more adjectives to it. “My personal and professional lives help me sleep well at night and I would like it to remain like that,” he added.A few days ago, when Arjun’s close friend Parineeti Chopra was asked about the actor’s marriage by Anaita Shroff Adajania on her chat show Feet Up With The Stars season 2, the Kesari actor brushed off the question under the carpet.”I don’t know if he is getting married,” Parineeti said when she was asked if she was aware about Arjun’s rumoured wedding with Malaika Arora.Although Malaika and Arjun have denied getting married anytime soon, fans are having tough time believing what the lovebirds have been saying.
Arjun is currently playing for MCC Young Cricketers XIReutersMost Indian cricket fans know who Arjun Tendulkar is. But that is entirely due to his being the son of Sachin Tendulkar. While the young man has grown up under the spotlight, he has steadily emerged as a good cricketer in his own right. His selection for the India under-19 team to take on their Sri Lankan counterparts proved his mettle.But now, the quality of Arjun, who, unlike his father, is a left-arm seamer, has become plainly visible thanks to a delivery he bowled while playing for MCC Young Cricketers XI against Surrey’s second XI. The video of this delivery was uploaded by the official Twitter account of Lord’s Cricket Ground.Here, Sachin’s son can be seen running up to bowl from the far end with a beautiful run-up and bowling a peach of a delivery that pierces through the defence of the batsman to rattle the stumps. It seems that the ball, bowled from left-arm over angle to the right hander, decked back substantially before sneaking through the gap between bat and pad.? Arjun Tendulkar, take a bow! He took this stunning wicket this morning for @MCCYC4L.Follow their progress versus @SurreyCricket 2nd XI ➡️ https://t.co/Vs5CtV2o8N#MCCcricket pic.twitter.com/5Mb3hWNI70— Lord’s Cricket Ground ? (@HomeOfCricket) June 17, 2019TwitterThere are a lot of things to admire about the Tendulkar scion. First, he has a very smooth run-up and action. Though he approaches the pitch at an angle, there is a proper use of his entire body in delivering the ball. It should allow him to bowl at a good pace and become faster as he grows older.Sachin has always said that he never puts any pressure on his son and has given him the freedom to follow his dreams. Those dreams, at the moment, seems to be related to his father’s profession. The way he has progressed through the ranks suggests that one day, he may well follow in his father’s footsteps and don the Indian jersey. The delivery he bowled to dismiss the Surrey second XI batsman certainly suggests a great deal of talent.
Youtube screengrabThe IIT-JEE has always been a source of nightmare for a majority of Indian students studying in classes 11 and 12. The intimidation they face as well as the pressure makes the teenagers want to run the other way.Clearing the JEE is the first step to get into the Indian Institute of Technology, which the most prestigious university in India.Surprisingly, Australian professors who took a look at the JEE question papers also called the questions “tricky and intimidating”.A video of Australian professors reacting to the questions went viral on social media, with the professors talking about how intimidating the questions were and that the test was literally a race against time. Six Australian professors, including two of Indian origin, were interviewed for the video, posted by a YouTuber, ‘Tibees’.In the video, a Chemistry professor, Dr James Hutchison, said that he will be surprised if a school going student will not find the questions intimidating since he found them slightly so. “I’d probably, you know, leave the exam room crying if I was in year 12 and I had to do this. Yeah, good luck, good luck,” he said.He added that the topics discussed in the examination are usually taught at the university level.Professor Barry Hughes, a mathematician, pointed out how answering the questions was a race against time. He also spoke about access to training for these types of examinations.”We all know that in any educational system if you go to a good school, well resourced, with the best teachers and so on like that, you expect a better outcome… But with these race-against-the-clock-style examinations, there’s a trade-off between the student’s ability in the subject, natural intelligence, and their having been trained to deal with examinations of this type,” he said. Other professors interviewed in the video said that most of the questions here depend on memorizing facts instead of applying concepts. They added that passing the test doesn’t necessarily mean they will turn out to be good engineers.

Kolkata: The School Education & Literacy department under the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) is coming up with pre-school educational units across the country, with National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) preparing a curriculum for the same.”There is preparatory work to be done before a child enters Class I. We are studying how pre-school will work in the government domain and what approach needs to be taken – whether we should train anganwadi workers or train teachers of Classes I and II,” Union secretary of School Education & Literacy Anil Swarup said on the sidelines of a session on pre-school policy organised by ASSOCHAM.

However, there are some private pre-schools that are doing good work. So, we feel the private sector can be of great help in developing the curriculum for pre-school. Personally, I believe that good work can be done in both private and public domains,” Swarup said.
