Chinese smartphone maker Vivo became the fastest-growing brand in India in the first quarter of 2019, clocking a massive 119% growth (year-on-year), Counterpoint Research said on Friday.

By launching devices in the less than Rs 20,000 segment (Y series) and the Rs 20,000 plus segment (V series), Vivo secured the third position — after Xiaomi and Samsung — with 12 per cent market share compared to 6 per cent in Q1 2018.


“We thank the Indian consumer for continuing to instil faith and confidence in our products which has led to this phenomenal growth of more than 100 per cent,” said Nipun Marya, Director-Brand Strategy, Vivo India.

Vivo products like the Y83Pro, Y95, V9, V9 pro, V11, V11 Pro, V15 and V15 Pro have delivered exceptional consumer experience in their respective price categories.


With an optical fingerprint sensor hidden beneath the display, V11Pro’s In-Display Fingerprint Scanning technology can accurately identify you. Eliminating the visible fingerprint pad results in a beautiful design, seamless from top to bottom, with effortless unlocking capabilities and a striking, futuristic feel.

“It further testifies our commitment towards the Indian market,” Marya added.

Vivo also announced the recently-launched vivo V15 Pro has become the fastest selling smartphone in the V series. The company entered the Indian market in 2014.

Swastika, one of the sacred symbols used by many religions like Hinduism, Jainism, and Buddhism.

The symbol of Swastika is known to signify peace, prosperity, and good fortune in the religious cultures of Eurasia. In fact, this symbol is considered very significant in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism. But, at the same time, it has become one of the most misunderstood religious symbols and has been globally banned in many countries.

The reason why the symbol of Swastika is banned in many countries is because of its association with Adolf Hitler's extreme political ideology, Nazism, as Swastika as its official symbol.

India celebrated a historic day on August 7, as 23-year-old Neeraj Chopra became the first Indian to win an Olympic gold medal in athletics. In the men's javelin throw event, he achieved his greatest triumph, throwing the javelin 87.58 meters on his second try.

Neeraj Chopra was born on December 24, 1997, in Khandra village in Haryana's Panipat district. He grew up in a Haryanavi family of farmers. He is the brother of two sisters. He graduated from Dayanand Anglo-Vedic College in Chandigarh and is now enrolled in Lovely Professional University in Jalandhar, Punjab, pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree. Chopra was bullied due to his obesity as a kid, which prompted his father to enroll him in a nearby gym. He then joined a gym in Panipat, where Jaiveer Choudhary, a javelin thrower, noticed his potential and coached him. When the 13-year-old Chopra finished training under Jaiveer for a year, he was enrolled at the Tau Devi Lal Sports Complex in Panchkula, where he began training under coach Naseem Ahmed.

Gothic dresses displayed in a store

The emergence of the Industrial Revolution in Victorian England brought with it many apprehensions and fears that translated into a new genre in literature: the gothic. Today, the idea of the gothic does not have to much with literature as much as it is associated with fashion.

The Victorians began to wear black more often during the Industrial Revolution to hide the stains of soot on their clothes. Many of the working class were employed in factories.
