New Delhi, April 04, 2017: Roshan Lal Falwaria is a popular name in Madipur assembly, who laid the foundations of AAP’s presence in the assembly that led two AAP’s mega victory.
The same Roshan is now fighting a battle against corruption with his own party. The ticket distribution for the upcoming MCD (Municipal Corporation of Delhi) elections have made AAP famous for all the wrong reasons and has brought a massive unrest among its hardcore volunteer base. Roshan Falwaria also has been raising his voice against the massive selling of tickets by AAP leaders since weeks and now has also decided to contest MCD elections.
Last month, Roshan protested against his own AAP leaders in an unprecedented way. He along with his wife and kids sat on a Dharna outside AAP Ministers Satyender Jain and Gopal Rai for almost a week with all his belongings with a plea to urge the AAP Ministers to buy his household belongings so that he can pay the quoted ticket price to Madipur MLA Girish Soni.
To normalize the negative perception and media attention created by him throughout the Dharna, Roshan was called for a negotiation and it was promised to him that all the matters will be given heed and introspected thoroughly. However, it all went into vain and ended in empty rhetorics of the typical politicians.
Recently, Roshan Lal produced a video showcasing his two kids speaking about their father’s honest commitment towards the party and ill-usage of the loyalty of their father.
The video demonstrates that with the involvement of common man in building the party, not only the volunteer but the entire family of the man comes into the effect of malice spell.
Newsgram contacted Roshan Lal Falwaria to know the series of malpractices in the Madipur Vidhan Sabha related to the MCD elections.
“My MLA, Girish Soni is absolutely corrupt. The people who constituted Madipur Vidhan sabha are nowhere to be seen in the party now.” Roshan from Madipur Vidhan Sabha told Newsgram.
Roshan further told Newsgram, “I was asked 25 Lakhs for the MCD ticket (Baakio ke liye 30 lakh rupiyaa or aapke liye 25 lakh rupiya)”.
Previously, in the story of unlawful distribution of MCD tickets, we learned that Abha Mittal from Madipur Vidhan Sabha was solicited a bribe of 2 crores for the MCD ticket.
Roshan has been serving the Aam Aadmi Party even before its inception, and despite living in rented accommodation he financed AAP at the cost of his children’s education and his business.
The party professed honesty and Anti-corruption propagandas in the initial days of its formation nevertheless when asked to Roshan Falwaria, the core AAP volunteer about the preaching of AAP, he refuted each one of them saying, “I have not observed any principles until now which the party professed earlier during its struggle years.”
“Gopal Rai, the Rural Minister of AAP Govt now fails to recognize me despite having cordial relation with him in the past.” He further said.
“Kejriwal applauded me in front of everybody for my contributions to build AAP structure in the assembly and campaigning for AAP but now things have soared oddly” states Falwariya.
He further wails by saying, “When my daughter went to meet Kejriwal urging him to meet me while I was on Dharna for illicit practices of ticket distribution, nobody was there to listen to her cries. I kept sitting in front of his house for almost a week, but none of the ministers approach me to pay heed to the woes, not even Arvind Ji!”
Roshan Falwariya is now considering to contest MCD elections.

With each passing year thanks to technology, research and development natural ingredients have finally regained their place in the spotlight. Don't take our word for it, beauty icons Kriti Sanon and Shanaya Kapoor also believe in natural and clean beauty products, and associate with the 'Naturali' range launched by RP-Sanjiv Goenka Group. The new age nature-inspired personal care brand aims to provide a one-of-a kind experience to their customer infused with trendy natural ingredients delivering quick visible results.
Hair care ambassador Kriti Sanon said, 'I am extremely thrilled to be associating with Naturali haircare range that is infused with modern, trendy natural ingredients which are free from harmful chemicals. I have always been an ardent supporter of the 'no nasties' proposition when it comes to my hair care needs, hence this association came very naturally to me. Everyone knows that natural products are supposed to be good for you, but they are often believed to be slow in giving results. Naturali changes this, as the range has a unique SuperBlend of complementary natural ingredients, that are optimized to give you quick visible results. As a woman myself, I strongly believe that no woman should ever have to compromise especially with respect to her beauty choices. So, it is extremely fulfilling to see a brand that is not only good for you being free from harmful chemicals but also makes you look good.'

It's a brand that I feel complements my personality and I'm sure, just like me, a lot of young women are going to instantly connect with it. It's trendy, unapologetic, true to its claims, and most importantly takes charge. What resonated with me the most was the fresh take Naturali offers on nature-based skincare, the exciting ingredients - Avocado, Tea Tree, Red Raspberry coupled with the free from harmful chemicals promise. As someone who's had to deal with her fair share of skin problems like pimples while growing up, I am certain this range is going to be very useful for girls out there and I can't wait for them to try it out!'
Shashwat Goenka, Sector Head, Retail & FMCG said, 'There has been a paradigm shift in how Indian consumers, especially the younger, more conscious generation, engage with beauty products today. They are looking for a holistic and transparent approach towards beauty and wellness that is result-oriented. However, despite there being a burgeoning rise in the demand for natural beauty products, the personal care 'free from nasties' segment is still underpenetrated in terms of mass, affordable players. And that's where we come in - Naturali, a personal care brand infused with natural ingredients that are efficacious and free from harmful chemicals. The range is also available at pocket-friendly price points to the masses, a first for the segment."

Children are often seen running around singing "London Bridge is Falling", and making a face of sadness when they reach the last line. Most people assume that the Fair Lady referred to in the rhyme is the Queen of England, and the current queen at that. But the history behind this rhyme goes farther back in time than we realize.
Speculation associated with this rhyme has to do with a process call immurement. Immurement was when a person was enclosed in a room with no exit points. This was more an act of superstition than punishment. It was believed to bring sturdiness to the structure if people were imprisoned behind the walls. London Bridge falling down was something that people at the time associated with weakness. But there is no evidence to substantiate the idea of immurement.

A more historical account states that the bridge fell as a result of a Viking attack. Vikings of Norway have a similar set of rhymes that associate their role in bringing down the Bridge of London. They sing of conquest and gold, and blessings from Odin, in Norse, which refers to the Bridge. King Olaf II is credited with this feat.
Most historians, unable to properly supply evidence of the above claims, state that perhaps the Thames River is the reason this rhyme came into existence. The original London Bridge had 19 arches that went deep into the river. This caused difficulty in navigation. The Bridge was taken down and reconstructed to accommodate boats and ships. Perhaps, it was this historical reconstruction that is being sung about. The London Bridge is the only one that directly refers to a historical event, and yet has no plausible evidence to support it.
