    One of the most known actors in India (atleast of the actual old names) and one of the best bollywood actors according to experts. Amitabh Bachchan is usually ranked the best one, with Raj Kapoor, some kapoors and khans and Kumar next. For us, he's more known of never dying despite always having bad health problems and looking pretty horrible. And has gained a legendary status because of this.

    Colonialism is, by its very nature, offensive, just because its (mostly) historic doesn't make it not offensive. See also slavery, see also the holocaust, etc etc.

    The Queen hasn't been 'axed'; they've opted to remove a photograph from a wall. Why this should even be deemed newsworthy is beyond me. The photograph has only been there for 8 years, so its not like anyone's erasing centuries of tradition. Secondly, its not being done by an Oxford College, its a decision taken by one group (MCR) within an Oxford College. Also, everyone should be offended by colonialism.

    I think the headline might be misleading. I don't think that is how you get pregnant.

    You can keep them as they are. It is a hard job on research you all did, not just because of a few former death row inmates. I just realized the current status of these picks.

    Philipp Mickenbecker hospitalized after a vessel opened and he lost a lot of blood. People are encouraged to keep praying for him. Rush Limbaugh's supporters did likewise earlier this. How did that turn out? https://switzerland.in-24.com/lifestyle/celebrities/3861.html
