The budding superstar, Varun Dhawan, spends the day with Breakfast to Dinner

~The charming actor disarms the viewers as he opens up about his life and his love for bikes ~


This week, UTV Stars’ Breakfast to Dinner brings to its viewers the dashing star who in spite of being a new kid on the block, is definitely going places – Varun Dhawan. The star kid who proved his mettle in his debut film, shares a slice of his life with the viewers as he talks about himself, his work and all that is dear to him.


The super energetic actor starts off his day with a healthy breakfast after which he heads for the gym. “I am a morning person,” says the actor as he gets ready to pump some iron. Varun confesses that he enjoys working out at the gym; which is a good thing, as the actor is going to have to bulk up for his upcoming movie, Main Tera Hero. The actor reveals that in the movie he will be sporting washboard abs and in order to achieve that, rigorous workout is a must. After the gym session, he takes the viewers on a stroll in his magnificent home where he talks about himself and what makes him a happy go lucky guy. This down to earth actor likes keeping people around him happy and maintains that talking about strains and struggles is just not the Varun Dhawan way.


After the tour of his palatial home, Varun now heads out of doors to his first commitment of the day. The actor needs to be at a poster shoot for his upcoming film. He pops into a rickshaw as soon as he gets out of his house and that is how he arrives at the studio! It is all work at the studio where Varun is busy with the photo shoot involving a swanky bike. Varun, being a bike lover, ends the episode on a high note as he takes a short spin on the bike. The actor took on the wheels despite being forbid by his parents from riding one. Well, that’s Varun Dhawan for you, spunky, unapologetic and upbeat.

modernization of the nation’s international airport


NEC Corporation (NEC; TSE: 6701) has received an order from the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal totaling approximately one billion yen for the modernization of Tribhuvan International Airport in the nation’s capital of Kathmandu.


As a landlocked country where mountains account for a majority of the territory, air transport is vital for effective travel and circulation of goods in Nepal. Tribhuvan International Airport plays essential roles for the country as its only international airport and a major hub for domestic flights. In order to accommodate the rapidly rising number of passenger flights in Nepal, Official Development Assistance (ODA) from Japan is being used to update airport equipment, such as aging surveillance radars and data processing systems. 


By March 2015, NEC is scheduled to provide an air traffic control radar system, a secondary surveillance radar (*) that receives detailed operating information from airplanes and a multi-sensor information processing system that utilizes information received from radars. This will contribute to improving the reliability and efficiency of air traffic control services in Nepal while helping to ensure smooth and secure airport operations.


NEC has provided air traffic control solutions for more than 50 years, including systems for sophisticated transportation hubs in Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and the Philippines. As a result, NEC is able to provide advanced air traffic control systems in Nepal that capitalize on technologies developed through a distinguished history of expertise and experience.


In April 2013, NEC established its “Mid-term Management Plan 2015,” which focuses on “Solutions for Society” that leverage Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) in order to advance social infrastructure and contribute to the resolution of a variety of social challenges. Going forward, NEC will continue to strengthen its solutions related to air traffic control and to develop new services that are based on regional needs.

A heart wrenching love story on Yeh Hai Aashiqui



~The show tells the tale of an unexpected love between an abductor and his hostage, set in turmoil ridden Punjab in the ‘80s~


This week, bindass’ show, ‘Yeh Hai Aashiqui’ that features unusual love stories brings its viewers a tale that will leave them touched and extremely moved. This time, the show tells the story, set in the turbulent Punjab of the 1980s, of a young girl, Preeti who is ready to be wed. But fate intervenes in a drastic manner, changing her life forever, and makes her fall in love with Raghu, against all norms. The story has resemblance to the 2003 Urmila Matondkar starrer, Pinjar.


The story begins in tumultuous Punjab in the 80s where Preeti is a young girl who is soon to wed her fiancé, Pranav, from Canada. Preeti hails from a respected family and is looking forward to get married and settle in Canada. However, that was never meant to be. One day, Preeti is abducted by Raghu. She soon learns that Raghu’s mother has a personal vendetta against Preeti’s father and she orders Raghu to defile Preeti so that her family has to bear the burden of this humiliation for the rest of their lives. But Preeti escapes, unknown of the fact that Raghu had actually helped her escape. Unfortunately, Preeti’s family refuses to accept her as she had been abducted and they suspect she had been sullied. Preeti tries to end her life but is rescued by Raghu once again. Given she has nowhere to go; she returns with Raghu to his house and lives with his family against her wish, hating Raghu all the while. All this while Raghu has developed feelings for Preeti but he never voices them, he just demonstrates them in small gestures. Soon, Preeti starts warming up to Raghu, after noticing everything he did for her and how he stands by her side.


They soon learn that Preeti’s family is moving to Canada and that her intended, Pranav is still waiting for her there. But finally speaking up, Preeti declares her love for Raghu and decides to spend her life with him, because it was he who supported her when even her family had turned their backs on her.


The episode will be hosted by the populartelevision actor Rithvik Dhanjani.
