February 26, 2016: Chhatarpur, New Delhi: In this south Delhi neighborhood, more than 400 Pakistani Hindus have been living in hutments without any support from the government. This colony is also called Pakistani locality.

Over the years, facing persecution and pressure to convert to Islam, thousands of Hindu families have fled to Indian borders, the majority of them living in Rajasthan and Haryana. The majority of these immigrants think that Government of India has not been very sympathetic to their cause. They hope for better opportunities in India and a way to permanent settlement.

Pakistan has often been in the news for persecutions of minority populations of Hindus and Christians. Even Ahmadiyya Muslim community has faced flak from fanatic Islamists in Pakistan as the mainstream Islam does not recognize Ahmadiyya as Muslims.
NewsGram brings you the latest on a segment of this population living in Delhi.

A lot of human right violation has taken place in Pakistan against the minorities and the local government has not been able to provide help to the victims.

A Different Take on Masculinity: Mard Ko Dard Nahin Hota

Abhimanyu and Radhika are childhood friends. She has seen him grow from pain to pain without feeling it.

Once Salman Khans heroine in “Maine Pyar Kiya”, Bhagyashree’s son Abhimanyu is now out to make his quirky debut as a boy-man who cant feel any physical pain.

The trailer of his first film “Mard Ko Dard Nahin Hota” has him bleeding through his head and nose as he walks down the street talking to us about the rare congenital disease that precludes pain.

The idea of not feeling any physical pain could serve as a decent metaphor for the desensitised times that we live in. But then I am not sure Vasan Bala, who has served as an assistant on dark films like “The Lunchbox” and “Raman Raghav”, wants us to assess his film as anything but what it is:a film about a guy who can’t feel any pain.

The protagonist’s ambition, perhaps echoing the modest aspirations of the film’s debutant hero, are severely restricted. So I suspect, is the appeal of this whimsical piece of cinema which also stars the very watchable Radhika Madan.

Abhimanyu and Radhika are childhood friends. She has seen him grow from pain to pain without feeling it. We see the defiant repudiation of pain in the film. But we aren’t really sure if the film would be a painless exercise. It seems to stretch one idea beyond endurance.( IANS)
