If Looney Tunes and Tazzos are still alive in the Indian political sphere, thanks to trolls and memes that cite the immaturity and puerile behavior of Mr. Rahul Gandhi aka Pappu of India (if you don’t trust us,search Google)


The 44-year old politician has gained immense popularity not due to his political acumen but for his frivolity and “Amul Baby” demeanor. The recent photo that went viral on the social media shows Mr. Gandhi holding white sheets of paper scribbled with bullet points in capital letters. And he was holding this ‘cheat-sheet’ or to say furre while arguing over the Lalit Modi row against Sushma Swaraj and even used those points in the same way as they were written.

With a history of mondegreens and half-baked proclamations, Rahul Gandhi hasn’t really given up. He challenges


the “suit-boot ki sarkar” and wishes to replace it by “kurta-pyjama aur chappal ki sarkar“. As if, the white linen would guarantee a cleaner government–white clothes,hence a whiter government. Probably, his donning of a white kurta at almost every occasion roots from this reason. Moreover, the hypocrisy of such statements is that Rahul Gandhi belongs to a dynasty which is known for its “suit-boot” status and inherited wealth instead of earned wealth.

Gandhi believes that “poverty is a state of mind.It does not mean scarcity of food, money or material things. If one possesses self-confidence then we can overcome poverty.” When statements like these come from the Vice-president of Congress, one ought to hurl the BPL (Below Poverty Line) statistics on him.


The infantalization of this man has become an issue of comic interest so much so that, none of his face expressions are spared and instantly transformed into memes. His broad rueful smile even at occasions which don’t require it, is yet another example of his fatuous mindset.

And when it comes to his commendable general knowledge, Rahul Gandhi can face no competition. The Gandhi scion claims that India is bigger than US and Europe put together. And his quotes such as-“I am not averse to politics, but that does not mean that I am going to join politics” is made when he’s a politician born in a political milieu and breathes as a Vice-president of Congress.

The Congress politician is usually accompanied with his mother,which has resulted into various comic trolls about him being a ‘mamma’s boy’ or accused by BJP politicians for not growing out his diaper years.


44 years and counting, Rahul Gandhi is eternally young and spirited when it comes to rallies and taking small lunch outings with farmers and their families. If he is the future face of India, then kindly declare a STATE of EMERGENCY as soon as possible.

Currently, when users set up WhatsApp Pay in India, the service only verifies the phone number linked to your bank account to enable UPI-based transactions

Facebook-owned WhatsApp may soon ask users to verify their identity to make payments on the platform. According to XDA Developers, new strings spotted in the latest WhatsApp beta release suggest that the messenger will require users to upload verification documents to continue using payments on WhatsApp. Currently, when users set up WhatsApp Pay in India, the service only verifies the phone number linked to your bank account to enable UPI-based transactions. In Brazil, the messenger uses Facebook Pay to validate users' credit or debit cards to facilitate payments.

At the moment, the service doesn't require users to submit any identity verification documents to make payments. However, that might change soon, the report said. WhatsApp v2.21.22.6 beta includes a few new strings which suggest that users might have to submit identity verification documents to continue using payments.

The identity verification might be limited to those who use WhatsApp Pay to receive payments for their businesses. UPI-based apps, like Google Pay, PhonePe and even WhatsApp Pay don't require users to submit any documents to transfer or receive money. However, wallet apps like PayTM do ask for KYC verification as per RBI guidelines.

WhatsApp is yet to make an official announcement regarding this change. Since the new strings have just made their way to the beta version, it might be a while before the company reveals any details, the report said. (IANS/ MBI)

Practising good nail hygiene involves following a systematic process to ensure the longevity of our nail health.

By Rajesh U. Pandya

Although the world is recovering from coronavirus pandemic, we must not lower our guards and stay alert when it comes to hand hygiene to curb the spread of the deadly virus. But are we paying sufficient attention to our nail hygiene? Our nails are the index of well-being for our entire body. The manifestations of several critical diseases were first detected within the dirty nails.

The ignorance towards our nails becomes the breeding ground of harmful bacteria. These germs enter our body through our hands because in India we eat through our bare hands. Therefore, nail hygiene is crucial and without it hand hygiene is incomplete.

Practising good nail hygiene involves following a systematic process to ensure the longevity of our nail health. It includes ensuring that food particles, dirt and dust are not sticking to our nails and there is no build-up of nail bacteria. Thankfully, contrary to popular belief, it is not that difficult to maintain good nail hygiene. A little diligence, awareness and attention are sufficient to keep our nails healthy.

Avoiding nail hygiene makes you prone to viral infections
Due to constant negligence towards the cleanliness of the nails, many serious issues like bacterial and viral infections arise. Often these lead to serious health problems. Our hand hygiene is not perfect till the time we clean the undersides of our nails besides washing hands regularly. Most people don't mind sharing nail clippers with others. This is however an extremely unhygienic practice. When we don't share any of our personal hygiene products then why do we share our nail clippers? Nails harbour abundant germs, bacteria and viruses and sharing nail clippers is equivalent to exchanging those microorganisms.
