As smartphone penetration increases by leaps and bounds in India, porn consumption has reached its zenith too. A new report has revealed that in India, 89 per cent people watched porn via mobile devices in 2019 — up three per cent from 2017 when the figure already touched 86 per cent.

Overall, three in four people are watching porn on their mobiles globally – meaning the devices like desktops and laptops have become secondary choices for them to watch porn, according to adult entertainment site Pornhub.


The site witnessed its share of mobile traffic reached 77 per cent globally in 2019 — 10 per cent rise from the prior year.

The US was second, with 81 per cent and Brazil third, with 79 per cent.

Seventy per cent people in Japan logged into Pornhub from their smartphones while the UK saw 74 per cent people watching porn on mobiles.

In 2013, mobile traffic accounted for just 40 per cent of Pornhub traffic, revealed its annual ‘Year in Review’ report. The porn watching on mobile trend was seen across major Pornhub markets.

The rising porn consumption on smartphones in India is owing to cheaper data plans along with a significant price drop in high-end smartphones that have made Internet surfing easy for over 450 million smartphone users in India.

India has the world’s highest data usage per smartphone at an average of 9.8GB per month that will double to 18GB by 2024, according to Swedish telecom equipment maker Ericsson.

The ongoing digital transformation in the country is expected to increase India’s total Internet user base to 829 million by 2021.

The adult entertainment site has also released data on how people access its portal from various Android operating systems.

In 2019, 48 per cent of its Android traffic on its website came from Pie (last year’s major update from Google), 23 per cent from Oreo (2017’s update), and 12 per cent from Nougat (2016’s update).

People stroll early morning at the Mumbai promenade.

Prior to the brutal second wave of the pandemic, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had cautioned civil services probationers against developing the despised "babu mindset". He gave the invaluable piece of advice while addressing civil services probies at the well-known Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration in Mussoorie via video-conferencing. He also outlined the keystone mantra of "minimum government and maximum governance".

With the recent collapse of the under-construction flyover in Bandra Kurla Complex which injured 14 labourers, it seems like the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has got the PM's keystone mantra all wrong. The recent flyover collapse isn't an isolated incident, in fact, a month ago a similarly bemusing incident took place in the eastern part of the suburbs.

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.
