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... [...]

In preparation for the Hector SUV launch in the second quarter of 2019, MG Motor India has turned to tech major Adobe to bring the industry’s only end-to-end digital solutions platform in India.
This partnership will help the brand chart out its entire customer journey – from the buyer's initial expression of interest to final purchase. “This deep access to customer insights will allow us to engage prospective customers with experiences that are personalised, relevant, and compelling, starting with the current pre-launch phase,” said Rajeev Chaba, president and managing director, MG Motor India.
The move would give MG Motor India access to a gamut of Adobe Experience Cloud products for the purpose of handling its digital media – making MG among the first automobile brand in India to adopt Adobe's entire suite of digital marketing products. “With the car-buying decisions of customers increasingly being influenced by digital media, it is imperative to provide a seamless, yet not in-the-face customer experience at all instances during digital customer interaction,” Rajeev said during the announcement.
The Adobe Experience Cloud platform will be responsible for delivering a differentiated customer experience for the brand. Everything from managing the Adobe Cloud Experience interface with customers via the revamped MG Motor India website to managing the entire step-by-step digital interface with customers around its launch will be handled by the platform.
As part of its digital strategy, Adobe will help MG Motor India build and consolidate its experience onto a common platform. This would include the brand's website, dealer websites, and digital screens. With the implementation of Adobe Analytics, MG India will leverage insights derived from digital interactions between the brand and its customers across these channels, to further deliver personalised customer experiences. Additionally, the brand’s recently revamped website has been moved from WordPress to the Adobe Experience Cloud, keeping in mind enhanced customer experience and personalised content as the core.
“Technology has transformed the way customers interact with the world around them and has rapidly evolved the expectations of brands. Digital, and the era of experience, are at the core of brands looking to thrive, especially in hyper-competitive sectors like the automobile industry. This industry has an array of objectives including appealing to a wide audience, establishing a deeper customer connection, and truly standing out from the pack. We are excited to partner with an iconic brand like MG and look forward to working with them as they enter the Indian market,” said Kulmeet Bawa, managing director, Adobe South Asia.

Lotus has announced a collaboration with Williams Advanced Engineering in order to develop and research ‘advanced propulsion technologies’. This partnership is going to lead to the development of an all-electric hypercar codenamed ‘Omega’, which will reportedly cost GBP 2 million (about Rs 18.6 crore).
Complete details of the partnership have not been revealed yet, but we know that Lotus will be leading the development of the car itself to ensure that it meets the brand’s standard of structural lightness. Williams will bring its F1 expertise and focus on the EV powertrain necessary that is necessary to give it an expected four-figure power output in order to compete with current hypercars at this price point.
This hypercar will be the first ever all-electric model made by Lotus and is a part of the brand’s plan to reposition itself as the performance-focused leader of the Geely Group, which is Lotus’ parent company. The group also includes Volvo, Polestar and LEVC, three carmakers with significant expertise in electrification.
The Omega is expected to have a four-wheel-drive system with at least two electric motors (one to power the front wheels and one for the rear) on the powertrain front, providing quick acceleration figures. Advanced battery technology should allow for a range of more than 400km, with fast charging and some sort of energy recovery system part of the package.
The Omega project is at the very least, two years away from being revealed. It remains to be seen whether Lotus and Williams will be working on any other powertrains or models together in the future. The Omega will face stiff competition when it enters the international market as it will go up against other all-electric performance cars like the Rimac C Two, Tesla Roadster as well as more traditional hypercar rivals like the Aston Martin Valkyrie and the Mercedes AMG One.
