With this personality, Narendra Modi has changed the behavioural paradigm and image projection of Indian prime ministers. The Indian voter now expects their PM to be everything grand, to be the superstar who would entertain them at regular intervals. Modi now presides over India not as the prime minister, but like a king. For a democracy, this can be a burdensome legacy. Anybody who succeeds him may have to also enact the king size performances that Modi has set as a template. If the Delhi election is any indication, it does look like Modi is writing the playbook for other politicians to follow. L. K. Advani may have said it disparagingly when he called Modi a good event manager. But Modi owned it and turned it into his political canvas.US President Donald Trump ''s visit is no different. Wrapped in a fancy and glitzy show with massive crowds, it brought a city to a standstill, with a mega event and a much publicised roadshow.

As the legendary heroine, late Sridevi''s daughter Jhanvi Kapoor walks down the roads in posh suburbs of Mumbai after wrapping her gym, we see her in hottest looks as she slips into shorts and tees. But then, there is this simple side of her which is not seen often and could be the biggest shocker about her. Recently Jhanvi went to Tirumala to pay homage to Lord Balaji and she took steps from Alipiri to reach Tirumala by foot. While climbing the holy seven hills, the way she drank water from the taps, played with deers en route, and posed for her cell phone is really amazing. That shows how simple Jhanvi is in real life. Though Jhanvi went to Tirumala many times with her mother and father, she never took the steps route as her mother wouldn''t be able to do it all the time. But now, she is taking that route to make sure that she enjoys the serene beauty of Tirumala hills and every bit of divinity. On the films front, Jhanvi will be next seen in a bunch of movies including Karan Johar''s Takht and others. Her debut film Dhadak didn''t do as expected at the box office.

Kim Stallwood and Philip McKibbin challenge animal lovers and animal advocates to think differently about their relationship with animals from the perspective of the Politics of Love.Would you say you re an animal lover ? It isn t difficult to find people who say they love animals. Many of us have cats or dogs, or both. In the United Kingdom, for example, almost half of households have pets. Very often these animals are thought of as family members. And a lot of us enjoy watching television programmes, like David Attenborough s, that bring the wonders of the natural world into our homes. Yet most of those who call themselves animal lovers knowingly participate in animal cruelty by eating meat, for example. Children easily appreciate the inconsistency here, but most adults still make excuses for their behaviour.
DESPITE THE ideas of Julia Monk and her colleagues on the frequency and normality of same sex mating behaviour among animals (see article), some species do work hard to attract the opposite sex. That is why birdsong fills the air during the spring and summer breeding season. What has proved vexing to ornithologists is understanding why birds that migrate to warmer climes in winter often carry on singing even though there is no breeding to be done and no need to defend a territory. But a study just published in Behavioral Ecology and Sociobiology by Abel Souriau of Charles University in Prague and Nicole Geberzahn of the University of Paris, Nanterre, casts light on the matter. Mr Souriau and Dr Geberzahn suggest that winter is a period of practice for the summer performance to come.Thrush nightingales are close kin to the common nightingale familiar in western Europe, but have a more easterly summer range. Males are innovative songsters, frequently plagiarising phrases from rivals and integrating them into their own tunes. They are also among the birds that carry on singing after they have migrated to Africa for the winter. So Mr Souriau and Dr Geberzahn decided to study the nature of their African songs.
