The movie might not be very scary but it can definitely keep you hooked.

Aruvi

Aruvi is one film that threw all stereotypes out of the box.

Aruvi is also a great example of the fact that good content can be commercially successful if marketed properly. This Tamil film brings in a new perspective which you will definitely enjoy.

Theeran: Adhigaram Ondru

This one might not have a perfect scrip but the research done to bring the real incidents on the screen is really worth applauding. The second part of movie will keep you on the edge of your seat. The natural portrayal of hardships faced by police while resolving a cases is another USP for this Tamil movie. This thriller definitely deserves to be on your must-watch list.

What is the best way to save Goa from deforestation?

What is the best way to save Goa from deforestation?

Drinking feni, may well be the answer, says the secretary of the Goa Cashew Feni Distillers and Bottlers Association Hansel Vaz, who on Thursday said, that sipping the state's unique alcoholic drink and making it popular would directly aid the greening of Goa's hills and other barren landscapes.

"To get more cashews, we need to plant more trees. I always say, by drinking feni you will save Goa, because we will be planting more cashew trees and we will have greener hills. The beauty of cashew is you do not need fertile land. You can grow it on a hill which can provide no nutrition. We will be able to grow more trees, if we can sell feni properly," Vaz said. Vaz's comments come at a time when the hillsides of the coastal state have witnessed significant deforestation for real estate development and for infrastructure projects. Feni is manufactured by fermenting and double distilling juice from the cashew apple.

The partakers of this new world, not surprisingly, are children and youth, armed with curiosity and the impeccable ability to navigate the online world with ease.

Unconventional career choices might be challenging at first, however, the benefits associated with these are promising. Today's job opportunities are the ones that didn't exist a few years ago. Similarly, the pace of technological evolution would continue to generate millions of new jobs in the future that we can't think of today. Equipping oneself with relevant, unique, evolving, and out-of-the-box skills, is thus, an important aspect for young graduates aiming to start their own business or land a secure job. As parents, education institutions, and the government are now motivating the youngsters to walk an extra mile, think of new ideas, and explore new career routes, students have gathered the confidence and courage to pursue their interests.
