Class 11 student murders a Class 2 student to postpone exams

RYAN SCHOOL MURDER
The probe into the most sensational murder case in recent times was the murder of a class 2 student of the Ryan International School of Gurgaon allegedly by a class 11 student to postpone exams. Pradhyumn, a Class 2 student, was found with his throat slit just outside the ground floor washroom of the school on September 8 morning, minutes after his father had walked him and his elder sister Vidhi (who is in the fifth standard) to the campus. Pradhyumn had gone to his classroom after saying bye to Vidhi, and then to the washroom at the other end of the floor.
First the case was being handled by the Gurugram police. Gurugram Police claimed that Ashok had taken the bus driver's knife with him to the toilet to clean it. There he saw Pradyuman alone and tried to sexually assault him, and when he shouted for help, he slit his neck.
But CBI after taking up the case claimed that it was the class 11 student of the same school who did this crime and his motive was to postp…

Razor Takes Nextbit to the Next Level

Razer Phone - Brilliant First Attempt


Credit: Razer
Two years back we got to see a very interesting project on the Kickstarter website. It was called Nextbit Robin, an android phone with a special feature. It automatically backed up data (upto 100GB) including apps that you were not using for a long time to the cloud, thus giving you the impression that it had sort of unlimited space, because you could keep on downloading and installing things on your phone without really running out of space. The idea was so well received that within the first twelve hours they reached their funding goal of $500,000 which they had hoped to reach within a month. By the next two weeks they reached their second milestone of a $1 million. Credit: Nextbit
The design was unique too, kinda boxy, slightly reminiscent of the Sony phones with a fingerprint scanner-cum-power button to the side. The colours were unique too. The midnight (blue) was my favourite. Sadly by the time it reached the Indian market via…

To letters,

To letters, 


There is something intrinsically romantic about a letter. There is also something fiercely exclusive and private about it. Each letter carries a story, those which were replied to, and also those which were stuck forever in a mailbox, having failed to reach their destination. It has its own magic world. The eagerness to read, a page filled with words to reply to and again the same old thing, to wait. You must be wondering why all of sudden I'm being such an old-school and leaving aside our tech-savvy keyboards talking about handwritten letters? Here's to why. With the loss of writing letters we have eventually lost out on people of character who were brave enough to pen down their running thoughts and weave as beautiful an art. Revealing their vulnerabilities, their emotions without a second thought. With the extinction of writing letters we forgot what it is to wait. As we stopped writing letters we lost within us something extremely humane. Perhaps this, amongst…
