New Delhi, Nov 20, 2016: Indian DJ duo Nina-Malika, who are soon to perform at the Sunburn music festival in Pune next month, say that as the Electronic Dance Music (EDM) world is mostly dominated by male DJs, female artistes have to prove themselves to earn respect.

“There’s less competition among the female DJs as there are fewer of us in the industry, but yes, as a female DJ, you definitely have to prove yourself to get respect in this industry,” Nina told IANS in an e-mail interview.

However, Malika says that “the scales are turning our way now as women DJs are really making a mark both locally and internationally”.

The duo also performed at the Global Citizen Festival India on Saturday.

Asked what makes them stand out among other DJs, Nina said: “I think we bring a unique combination of homegrown as well as international flavour to the table. With our mixed roots combined with our Indian heritage, we’re able to curate a sound with all-rounder appeal”.

“Our music appeals to audiences in India as well as abroad, so that’s something unique,” Malika added. (IANS)

  • HeyYou

    Once again we are reminded of the lack of Female DJs at festivals. How about doing something about it like promoting those female djs that are out there and inspiring women to do so, rather than whine about it? I do it and so should you.

Aadhaar Helpline Mystery: French Security Expert Tweets of doing a Full Disclosure Tomorrow about Code of the Google SetUP Wizard App

Google comes up with a new feature

Google’s admission that it had in 2014 inadvertently coded the 112 distress number and the UIDAI helpline number into its setup wizard for Android devices triggered another controversy on Saturday as India’s telecom regulator had only recommended the use of 112 as an emergency number in April 2015.

After a large section of smartphone users in India saw a toll-free helpline number of UIDAI saved in their phone-books by default, Google issued a statement, saying its “internal review revealed that in 2014, the then UIDAI helpline number and the 112 distress helpline number were inadvertently coded into the SetUp wizard of the Android release given to OEMs for use in India and has remained there since”.

However, the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) recommended only in April 2015 that the number 112 be adopted as the single emergency number for the country.

According to Google, “since the numbers get listed on a user’s contact list, these get  transferred accordingly to the contacts on any new device”.

Google was yet to comment on the new development.

Meanwhile, French security expert that goes by the name of Elliot Alderson and has been at the core of the entire Aadhaar controversy, tweeted on Saturday: “I just found something interesting. I will probably do full disclosure tomorrow”.

“I’m digging into the code of the @Google SetupWizard app and I found that”.

“As far as I can see this object is not used in the current code, so there is no implications. This is just a poor coding practice in term of security,” he further tweeted.

On Friday, both the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) as well as the telecom operators washed their hand of the issue.

While the telecom industry denied any role in the strange incident, the UIDAI said that he strange incident, the UIDAI said that some vested interests were trying to create “unwarranted confusion” in the public and clarified that it had not asked any manufacturer or telecom service provider to provide any such facility.

Twitter was abuzz with the new development after a huge uproar due to Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) Chairman R.S. Sharma’s open Aadhaar challenge to critics and hackers.

Ethical hackers exposed at least 14 personal details of the TRAI Chairman, including mobile numbers, home address, date of birth, PAN number and voter ID among others. (IANS)
