New Delhi, June 1, 2017: External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj has offered help to a person in Pakistan who highlighted his infant’s health condition on the social media.

Sushma Swaraj said late on Wednesday night that India would offer a medical visa after Ken Sid posted a picture of his ailing child on Twitter with the message: “Why my bud suffers for medical treatment!! Any answers (Pakistan Prime Minister’s Advisor on Foreign Affairs) Sir Sartaaj Azeez (sic) or Ma’am Sushma??

Ken Sid’s Twitter profile describes himself as a civil engineer, who works as a project manager in Forman Christian College, Lahore.

“Love to design execute and built. Don’t have time for politics,” the profile reads.

Sushma Swaraj’s gesture comes days after she helped rescue through the Indian mission in Islamabad an Indian woman who was forced to marry a Pakistani. (IANS)

Shikha Talsania, who was recently seen in one of the lead roles in a hit film, Veere Di Wedding, has said that she often faces body-shaming on social media, but she prefers to reply to them with “love and positivity”.

Talking about the incident, Shikha revealed that once somebody called her moti (fat) on social media, on which she gave her befitting reply and chose to reply to the troll with a “hug”. While speaking with Hindustan Times, “At the beginning of our promotions for Veere Di Wedding, somebody sent me a spurt of abuses like ‘moti, here’s the biggest gaali to you’. I responded by saying ‘kintu, parantu, bandhu, here’s a hug to you’. That’s all they need. And I really want to say them that don’t be a hater, be a lover.”

She further said, “I find it really interesting to read what people are saying about me. Sometimes, I choose to respond and sometimes, I don’t. Most of the times, I don’t. I feel if I respond to them in the same way they write to me then it’ll take things to a different level.”

“Somewhere, I always chose to respond [to trolls] with a lot of love and positivity. I feel trolling is such a lovely insight into human behaviour (grins). Honestly, I have never let it affect me too much,” Shikha added. (IANS)
