The Bombay high court has directed Amazon Prime Video to take down a Telugu movie until the makers of the film deleted a scene in which a Mumbai-based actor's photograph was allegedly used without prior permission. Photograph: Abhishek N Chinnappa/Reuters Justice Gautam Patel on Tuesday heard a defamation suit filed by model and actor Sakshi Malik against Venkateshwara Creations Pvt Ltd for allegedly using her photograph without permission in their movie. Malik's advocate Saveena Bedi said the scene showed Malik's photograph, referring to her as a commercial sex worker. 'Simply using another's image, and most especially a private image, without consent is prima facie impermissible, unlawful and entirely illegal. In a given case, it may also be defamatory, depending on the type of use,' the court said in its order. 'The fact that the image has been illicitly used is bad enough. It only makes matters worse when used in a plainly derogatory and demeaning ... » Learn More about HC asks Amazon to remove Telugu film

Apart from being a dynamic leader, Rajiv Gandhi -- prime minister of India between October 1984 and November 1989 -- was a skillful photographer and throwback pictures of his wife Sonia Gandhi reveal his gift for preserving fine images for posterity. The Congress posted on its Instagram account some of Rajiv's photographs of Sonia. The post captioned, 'The grace and charm of #SoniaGandhi captured through the lens of #RajivGandhi' featured the United Progressive Alliance chairperson when she was young. While it is difficult to imagine her wearing anything other than her signature cotton saris, in the pictures, Sonia can be seen donning Western outfits. Everything about the snaps, from the perfectly applied lipstick and kajal to the shining long black hair falling over her shoulder, to a small but bright smile, radiates a feeling of happiness, which has been beautifully captured by Rajiv Gandhi. Sonia Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi wed in February 1968. ... » Learn More about Can you recognise this politician?
Video Player Close BRUSSELS, March 3 (Xinhua) -- The European Commission on Wednesday updated its fiscal policy guidance to the European Union member states, warning against a premature withdrawal of fiscal support, which it said should be maintained this year and next. The guidance provides that once health risks diminish, fiscal measures should gradually pivot to more targeted and forward-looking measures that promote a resilient and sustainable recovery and that fiscal policies should take into account the impact of the Recovery and Resilience Facility (RRF).

What is strange, for someone who spent a lifetime in seva, is that St Teresa's own personal journals and communication with the Church hierarchy reveal someone in “spiritual desolation", says Sankrant Sanu. Could the Indian sacred traditions have helped her out of her dark night? M other Teresa’s sainthood has been welcomed by many who see her as an exemplar of a frugal life of selfless service. There have equally been many critiques about Teresa’s canonisation by the Church, including her woeful neglect of those under her care (sharing needles when she herself got first class care), financial fraud (raising money that enriched the Vatican, but didn’t go to helping the poor) and hobnobbing with dictators, and justifying Indira Gandhi’s Emergency. Many of her trenchant critics, like the late Christopher Hitchens, have been atheists. Small wonder, then, the paradox of her spiritual journey has been overlooked. For someone who had spent a life in service of God, she was lonely ... » Learn More about The ‘spiritual desolation’ of Saint Teresa
