With the Indian Premier League (IPL) beginning tomorrow, fans are gearing up for the action, never mind the match fixing allegations.
This young man called Aditya K from Chennai, who was incidentally spotted in a Dombivali local, is a Chennai Super King (CSK) fan, his head says it all.

Rajni & NaMo
One of our favourite-est things in the world are Rajni (Rajnikanth) jokes. So, given the current political climate, it is no wonder that Rajni has been dragged into the political scenario too. Recently one saw pictures of Narendra Modi with Rajnikanth. Now, there is a joke going on social media which says: BREAKING NEWS: All parties unanimously agree to support agree to support NaMo unconditionally for the PM post. They said: `itni chhoti si baat ke liye Rajni Sir ko beech me lane ki kya jarurat thi.'

The Deccan Queen
Here are pictures of the Queen's Necklace (in those days, 10 cars on the street were normal) and 25 cars were a traffic jam.
The Queen's Necklace as it was then
