Mumbai, October 28, 2016: World famous French footwear designer Christian Louboutin considers India a “feminine country” as he finds the people very emotional and diverse.

“I tend to give a gender to every country. Coming to India was a childhood dream. When I first came to India at the age of 16, I visited Chennai. It was so amazing! I watched films and those characters were so emotional. I think Indians are very emotional and diverse at the same time. Perhaps that’s why India is a feminine country for me,” Louboutin said here.

The designer — known for the famous red soles on his designs — was speaking at a panel discussion on Fashion and Film at the Jio MAMI 18th Mumbai Film Festival on Thursday. The discussion, moderated by filmmaker Karan Johar, also involved fashion designer Prabal Gurung and actress Katrina Kaif.

Commenting on Louboutin’s thoughts about India, Katrina said: “You found our country emotional perhaps because not only women, but men also don’t shy away to express their emotional side on screen or in reality. On the other hand, the projection of overtly emotional man is rare in west.”

Coming from different cultural backgrounds, all the panellists explored the fascinating connection between fashion, films, and the influence of Bollywood in their lives and creative thoughts.

Katrina said that her fashion in films changes “according to the demand of the character”.

“That is not my personal choice. I played a character in Prakash Jha’s ‘Raajneeti’ where I wore cotton saris. I think fashion in films is very character-based,” she said.

Gurung said: “One’s look does not define an individual’s talent. So there is no point in saying that a well-dressed actress is not a well read one. It doesn’t have to be mutually exclusive. Having said that, film is a visual media, like fashion. So it a tool of communication.”

Karan Johar, who is known for his glamorous films and extravagant clothes that his actors wear, said his late father Yash Johar used to criticise his investment on clothes for “Kuch Kuch Hota Hai”. But later, those clothes became a trend.

“I went to London to shop for my films and obviously the budget got higher because of that. I wanted my characters to look in a certain way. And I am very proud of all the looks of my film, of how my actor actresses look. My father thought I am mad. Now you can see, it’s a trend,” he said. (IANS)

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)
