Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga, the first mainstream Indian film to feature a lesbian relationship, also features a famous acting dynasty and despite some hiccups, it’s welcomeAs we take our seats for a screening of Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga, the song of the same title from 1942: A Love Story, made in 1994 and starring a young Anil Kapoor, plays softly in the background. The room, full mostly of LGBTQ+ people, hum quietly along. Initially sung by a man about a woman he falls for, the song has been rebranded as a queer anthem for the new blockbuster Bollywood film of the same name. Roughly translated as “I felt something when I saw that girl”, it is now being sung joyfully by queer women around the world, with a sly smile.

Maruti has revealed the prices for the Baleno RS facelift on its Nexa dealer website ahead of the model’s official launch. The facelifted hatchback is priced at Rs 8.76 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
As with the standard Baleno model, the Baleno RS facelift gets a redesigned front fascia with a larger grille and a new bumper with prominent central air dam flanked by large faux-vents housing the fog-lamps and a chin spoiler. Down the sides, the profile remains unchanged, although the alloy wheels as per the single image appear to be new.
Under the hood, the 102hp, 998cc, three-cylinder Boosterjet powerplant from the pre-facelift model carries forward unchanged. The unit continues to be paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox as standard with no automatic gearbox option. Stopping power is provided by disc brakes on all four wheels.
There are no images of the car’s cabin yet – though as per dealer sources, the cabin for the Baleno RS forgoes the black-and-blue theme from the standard Baleno in favour of an all-black cabin to go with its sportier credentials.
The levels of equipment offered are at par with the top Alpha trim of the standard Baleno with kit that includes Maruti’s new SmartPlay Studio infotainment system, auto climate control, tilt- and telescopic-adjust steering, keyless entry and go, LED headlamps and electric fold wing mirrors, to name a few.
Safety kit on offer includes dual airbags, ABS with EBD and rear parking sensors.
The Baleno RS facelift continues to rival the likes of the Fiat Abarth Punto, the Volkswagen Polo GT TSI and the Tata Tiago JTP. The new Baleno RS, when officially launched, will continue to be sold from Maruti’s premium Nexa dealership chain.

As the first leader of the Catholic church to visit the Arabian peninsula, Francis knows his contact with Muslims will be as important as the mass he hosts for the Christian minorityPope Francis’s visit to the United Arab Emirates this week will be greeted enthusiastically. Some 120,000 people are expected to turn out for his mass in a sports stadium in Abu Dhabi – as many as turned out in Dublin when he travelled to historically Catholic Ireland last year. The first visit by a pontiff to the Arabian peninsula, the birthplace of Islam, highlights the complications of the religious situation in the Middle East, and more widely the issues of Christian-Muslim relations.There may be as many as 2 million Christians in the Middle East today. Despite nearly 16 years of war and sometimes brutal persecution in the aftermath of the invasion of Iraq, many remain in the lands that were the cradle of Christianity. In part this is because it is still made as hard as possible for them to leave the region. The Christians of Iraq have largely been driven from their homes by persecution, as have some of the Christians of Syria, where a number have taken the side of the Assad dictatorship. But they have ended up in refugee camps rather than reaching notionally Christian Europe. Continue reading... [...]
