Rapper Badshah says he gets a lot of hate messages and criticism from people, but he is used to them now.

Badshah’s latest single “Heartless” from his album “ONE” has crossed 50 million views on YouTube. Many have liked it and some haven’t.


“Criticism is for real. The amount of hate that I get is… just the fact that now, I am used to it. It doesn’t make a difference, but it always breaks my heart. Even this video has got so many dislikes. I don’t know who is disliking this video. I don’t know why there is so much of hatred,” Badshah told IANS here.

“I am deliberately spammed. Once I got messages in the same format. There were about 100 of them. It was a copy and paste thing from different accounts. I get spammed. I don’t know why. Now I know, so it’s okay. I am getting my money, I am entertaining people and I have a strong fan base as well,” he added.

The over seven-minute long video involves a little girl, who is battling cancer and has a desire of meeting Badshah.

“The credit goes to Gurickk G Maan – the director of the video. He is a genius. He was the one who came up with this idea. We were a bit apprehensive in the beginning. Not a lot of people watch such a long video,” said the “Tareefan” hitmaker.

But he was sure that once people start watching it, they will not be able to skip it.

“It’s a story that needed to be told. Even Gurickk is (singer) Gurdas Maan’s son. He knows what happens, how people perceive a lot of things. If celebs try to do something good, people think it is a publicity stunt and if they do without showing it, they don’t get credit.

“He knows how I am. I go out of my way to help people, but I don’t tell people. Goodness is not about beating your own drum. This (the video) was probably his way of showing my other side. I just loved the concept so, I didn’t question him,” he said.

Sometimes he shares posts on social media about helping ailing people.

“There is an organisation called Milap. While checking Facebook, I saw an ad. I had already donated certain amount of money to another organisation. I don’t know if it went through or not, but my money was deducted from my account.

“So, on Milap’s (page), there was a pic of this girl who was suffering from something related to liver. She needed a lot of money for the treatment. I donated certain amount of money.

“The girl is fine now. I keep doing these things. I put it up on Instagram. Why I posted it on Instagram was because I needed to tell people that you might want to do something like this.

“Some people even messaged to me saying that they can donate just Rs 500. It doesn’t matter. You need to have a heart to help others and separate yourself from your money. So that was inspiring.” (IANS)

Pind Daan at Jagannath Ghat, Kolkata.

The Pitru Paksha starts after the Full Moon day, and this day marks the beginning of the waning phase of the Lunar cycle. This event is roughly of 15-day period, and is of great significance. From this day, rituals like Tarpan or Tarpanam and Shradh are carried out to pay respects to dead relatives and ancestors.

It is believed that from the very first day till the last day, the unhappy souls of the deceased return to the Earth to see their family members. So, in order to ensure that the dead attain Moksha, i.e. to get liberation, family members of these souls quench their thirst and satisfy their hunger by performing the Pind Daan, which includes offering food consisting of cooked rice and black sesame seeds. The literal meaning of Pind Daan is the act of satisfying those who no longer exist physically.

Cubbon Park is a lush green garden at the heart of Bangalore

At the heart of Bangalore city, a large 300-acre space of lush greenery and heritage stands as a symbol of the city's past, present, and future. Cubbon Park is every child's favourite park, every Bangalorean's haven of fresh air, and altogether, the city's pride.

It stands testament to the past, in terms of the diversity of flora it houses. Bangalore traffic in the recent past has grown into a menace, but the stretch between MG Road and Cubbon Park is always a pleasurable place to stop and wait for the signal to turn green. The gust of wind that blows here, and the smell of mud, coupled with floral scents instantly transports citizens to Old Bangalore, where the weather was fine, and the trees loomed over roads with thick canopies that did not even allow rainwater to penetrate. Cubbon Park is also a historical site, and one of the few remaining monuments of colonial heritage in Central Bangalore. It houses many statues and among them, the most famous is that of Queen Victoria, which faces the St. Mark's Square.
