Why Paridhi Sharma is quitting Jodha Akbar?

Join us on Facebook 
Paridhi Sharma, who shot to fame from Jodha Akbar is planning to quit the show due to altercations with the director.

According to our reliable sources, "Paridhi and Rajat don't see eye to eye, because of which she has been having a tough time during shoots. Director Santram Verma (who is good friend of Rajat) apparently has been making her work at odd hours. Sometimes, Santram even makes her wait unnecessarily. When Ekta Kapoor was producing the show, Paridhi had requested her to intervene to resolve the matter. As now Ekta is not associated with the show anymore, things have gotten worse for Paridhi. That's Paridhi is planning to bid the show adieu."

Paridhi remained unavailable for comment.

Why String is immutable or Final in Java?

Why String is made immutable in Java? Well this is one of the most popular interview questions in Java. Isn't it?

The interviewer might starts with, What is String? How a Java String is different than String in C and C++? And then shift the focus on String Immutablity.

The interviewer will ask you about the benefits of immutable object. He might ask you, why do you use it and in which scenarios.

The interviewer can ask the same question in different way like, Why STRING is FINAL in Java?

In short, Security and String pooling are primary reason of making String immutable. Here are the detailed reasons why Strings are made immutable or final in Java:

1) String pool requires string to be immutable otherwise shared reference can be changed from anywhere.

Let's imagine Strings are mutable, now imagine a String pool facility. Now think, is this a valid scenario? Well its not, because in case of string pool one string object or a literal let's say "ABC" has referenced by many reference variables, that means if any one of them change the value others will be automatically gets affected.

For e.g:

String x = "ABC";
String y = "ABC";

Now String y called "ABC".toLowerCase(), this will change the same object into "abc". So the object x will also have "abc", which is not desirable.

2) From opening a network connection, or passing a host-name or port number, or database URL as string for opening database connection, or to open any file in Java by passing name of file as argument to File I/O classes, STRINGS are widely used as parameter in Java applications.

This would lead serious security threat if String are made not immutable. Someone can access any file for which he has authorization, he/she then can change the file name either deliberately or accidentally and gain access of those file.

You need to open a secure file which requires the users to authenticate themselves. Let's say there are 2 users 'Ram' and 'Shyam' and they have their own password files, 'RamPass' and 'ShyamPass', respectively. 'Ram', should not have access to 'ShyamPass' and vice-versa.

As filenames in Java are specified by using Strings, so while creating a FILE object you pass the name of the file as a STRING only.

'Ram' should have logged into using his credentials and then could have managed to change the name of his password file from 'RamPass' to 'ShyamPass', before JVM actually places the native OS system call to open the file. Thus 'Ram' can access the password file of 'Shyam', this will result into a big security flaw. As the Strings are immutable, JVM can be sure that the filename instance member of corresponding FILE object would keep pointing to the same unchanged 'filename' STRING object. The 'filename' instance member being a FINAL in the FILE class, hence cannot be modified to point to any other STRING object, specifying any other file than the intended one.

3) STRINGS can be safely shared between many threads as since STRINGS is immutable. This is very important for multithreaded programming and to avoid any synchronization issues in Java, Immutability also makes STRING instance thread-safe. Which means you don't need to synchronize STRING operation externally.

Another important point to note about STRING is memory leak caused by 'SubString', which is not a thread related issues but something to be aware of.

4) Being immutable a String in Java caches its hash-code, and do not calculate every time we call hash-code method of String, this makes it very fast as hashmap key to be used in hashmap in Java. Hence no one can change its contents once created which guarantees hashCode of String to be same on multiple invocation.

Yo Yo Honey Singh to judge a music reality show on Star Plus!

There was a recent buzz doing the rounds that the rapper Yo Yo Honey Singh has been approached for the next season of popular dance reality show "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa". However the singing sensation took to Twitter to deny the buzz. "YoYo in Jhalak Dikhla Jaa Super Fake News Kindly Ignore Team YoYo," he wrote on his micro blogging site. On the other hand, our sources associated with the dance reality show insist that he was approached but didn't sign the contract because of monetary problem and contractual issues.

Now have heard that the lungi dance fame singer will soon be judging a music based reality show on Star Plus. The show expected to air in a couple of months and might replace Sunil Grover's Mad In India.

The rapper remained unavailable for a comment despite repeated attempts.

Ronit Roy, who is currently seen as lawyer KD Pathak in Sony TV’s Adaalat, again proved that he has a heart of gold. Recently, he bought formal shoes for all the unit hands, who couldn’t afford it.

According to our sources, “Ronit noticed that most of unit hands in rubber chappals, so he told them they can’t come to work so formally dressed. He later came to know, some of unit members are wearing rubber slippers because they couldn’t afford formal shoes. So, Ronit decided to buy shoes for all of them.”

After this all that we can say, this highest paid television actor certainly has a heart match his bank balance.

Well there is good news for the fans of Adaalat, instead of two times the show would now be telecast three times in a week.

Docile Deepika Singh and Ravishing Rashami Desai talks about Women on International Women’s Day

To celebrate women's triumph all over the nations, International Women's Day has been observed on March 8th since in the early 1900's. In celebration of this lovely day of womanhood, we caught up with two beautiful TV actresses Docile Deepika Singh and Ravishing Rashami Desai...

After doing several Bhojpuri films, ravishing Rashami Desai made her debut on small screen in 'Pari Hoon Main' for Star One. But this natural actress shot to fame by playing the sheer negative character of Tapasya in Colors' long running show Uttaran. She was earlier known as Shivani Desai, but after consulting her astrologer she changed it to Rashami.

Does one need a special International Women’s day to celebrate the cause of women?
Actually people should celebrate the cause of women everyday considering the number of crimes happening over the time, but yes with a specific day allotted to this cause, it gives a heavier weight-age to the whole cause and brings it to light. The specific celebration does leave a heavy impact on people. It is good to remind everyone of this day so more awareness is there..

What in your opinion is the biggest advantage of being a woman?
I feel women are the tigress' who can shield anything and anyone from dangers. I feel a woman is the perfect blend of love, compassion, care, warmth, bravery, courage, patience, endurance and purity! The advantages of being woman are that she can understand everyone emotionally and be as caring as one can be. The eternal power of multi tasking everything in her life, be it career and personal life because God made her to balance out the universe. Women is very strong and she can make the world go round with a smile.

Eve-teasing, physical abuse and even rape are very common social problems. What one piece of advice would you give to the Women to fight back?
Precaution is better than cure, I feel every woman should be cautious each and every moment and be in places and with people that are safe. Also in today's era we can voice our opinion and revolt against the crimes happening, woman should not keep quiet and fight against the injustice. Women should not let anyone take advantage of her in any way. One should not travel alone at night through secluded areas and lanes in any city. She can carry red pepper spray along with a perfume bottle.

Tell us about the woman who changed your life.
My mother without a doubt, she has believed in me since childhood and let me do whatever I was passionate about. She is my backbone and my hero. She made me into a better person and inculcated values in me.  Life is all about loving your mother. .My mother is my support system.

The actresses you look up to as a source of inspiration?
Madhuri Dixit, I used to imitate her in front of the mirror as a child and danced on her numbers. She inspires me, her grace, dancing, smile, acting and reality. That humility and poise is magical. I want to be like her. She is a perfect woman in every sense of the word.

What can society at large do, to improve the lot of women in our country?
The first step should be of educating and empowering women with the knowledge and social rights awareness.  The society should protect any woman who is being harassed in their presence, Police forces should look after woman safety. Women are as competent as man. Education should be a priority.

Any situation you faced, when you are considered weak?
I was a little child in school there was a lot of child kidnapping and trafficking going on and my mother was afraid of me getting kidnapped a few times, but my seniors were kind enough to drop me to my classroom.

What makes you think that women can take over men?
Women have the sensitivity and patience to handle any situation, Women can achieve the same career goals that men do and also the personal goals as well. I don't see where women lag behind. Women are all-rounder and good at multi-tasking. Women can cook at home and be a boss in an office or have a career of her own and yet not neglecting the home.

Message to our readers..
Please be aware and make everyone around you aware of women rights and safety, avoid being in lonely and conspicuous places when it doesn't feel like a safe time. Women are those who make your home, please don't break them with brutal injustice and abuse. Realize your potential. Recognize your strengths. Don’t compromise in anything. Be happy from within and don’t forget it’s your right to be happy and love yourself as well.

Deepika Singh is well known as Sandhya of Diya Aur Baati Hum. The show has managed to be on the top of TRP charts for two years at a stretch and is no doubt one of the most successful show of Star Plus. Though this is Deepika's first daily soap, yet from the day one she is enthralling the audience with a power packed performance.

Does one need a special International Women’s day to celebrate the cause of women?
Just one day is not enough, I believe each and every day we should celebrate womanhood.  But dedicating a day to Women is also a good idea, as it gives a chance to appreciate and honour those Women’s, who proved their mettle.

What in your opinion is the biggest advantage of being a woman?
The biggest advantage about being a woman it's that we give the life, we can have babies, and we breed the generations. We are very emotional and are always attached to our family. Sometimes we sacrifice our dreams for others.

Eve-teasing, physical abuse and even rape are very common social problems. What one piece of advice would you give to the Women to fight back?
Do not afraid, be strong and never lose hope. Always remember, God help those who help themselves. Do not wait for some else to come and fight for you or protect you.  Do not allow anybody to treat you like a piece of meat. Learn martial arts to defend yourself in the event of a physical abuse or rape.

Tell us about the woman who changed your life.
My mom Rani Singh. She has always been a pillar of strength and a source of inspiration. She taught me to stay strong in any condition.

The actresses you look up to as a source of inspiration?
I look up poise and polished acting skills of Shabana Azmi. From 'Ankur' to her last released film 'The Reluctant Fundamentalist', she always motivated me to act better and better. Also Priyanka Chopra inspires me because she has a fire within.

Any situation you faced, when you are considered weak?
Waise toh I was never considered weak but there was a time when my dad faced some issue in his factory. I was 18 years then.  I expressed my wish to join factory to share his work load.  Like a protective father, he didn’t want me to deal with the labour at such an early age.  So he asked me to concentrate on my studies. At that time once my mom expressed without saying a word that agar ladka hota toh it would be better.  But it was just her fleeting thought.

What makes you think that women can take over men?
I do not believe in the concept of woman taking over man or vice versa.  I'm an equalist not a feminist.

Love yourself and follow your dreams. And thanks for your continued support, I am nothing without you.

Lyrics & English Translation of 'Bekhauff Azaad Hai Rehna Mujhe' (Satyamev Jayate-2)

Song: Bekhauff Azaad Hai Rehna Mujhe
Album: Satyamev Jayate Season 2
Music: Ram Sampath
Lyrics: Svati Chakraborty
Singer: Sona Mohapatra

Deewarein oonchi hai, galiyaan hai tang..
Lambi dagar hai par himmat hai sang..
Paanv pe chhaale hain, saansein buland..
Ladne chali hoon azadi ki jung..

The walls are high and streets are narrow..
the path is long but I've courage with me..
There are blisters on my feet, (but) breaths are high (my morale is high)..
I've started to fight the fight of freedom..

Bekhauf aazaad hai jeena mujhe..
Bekhauf aazaad hai rehna mujhe

I've to live fearless, free..
I've to live fearless, free..

Reeti ki zanjeerein kha gayi zang..
Nyaay ke mandir bhi ho gaye bhang..
Zamaana chale na chale mere sang..
Bolungi halla, aawaz dabangg

The chains of traditions have been rusted..
and even the temples of justice have been broken..
whether the world moves with me or not..
I'll launch an attack, in a loud voice..

(Halla bolna has become synonymous with launching a verbal attack, often for a moral or ethical reason)

Bekhauf azaad hai kehna mujhe..
Bekhauff azaad hai rehna mujhe..

I've to speak out fearless and free..
I've to live fearless, free..

Chotein jism par marham umang..
Laash nahi hoon mann zinda patang..
Dil mein ummeedein aur khushiyon ke rang..
Har aansoo banega ik nayi tarang

There are wounds on my body, and enthusiasm is the ointment,
I am not a corpse, (instead) my heart is a living (flying) kite,
There are hopes in my heart and colors of joys,
every tear will become a new wave (of happiness)..

Haan.. bekhauf azaad hai behna hai mujhe..
Bekhauff azaad hai rehna mujhe..

Yeah, I've to flow, free and fearless..
I've to live free and fearless..

Deewarein oonchi hai, galiyaan hai tang..
Lambi dagar hai par himmat hai sang..
Paanv pe chhaale hain, saansein buland..
Ladne chali hoon azadi ki jung..

The walls are high and streets are narrow..
the path is long but I've courage with me..
There are blisters on my feet, (but) breaths are high (my morale is high)..
I've started to fight the fight of freedom..

Bekhauf aazaad hai jeena mujhe..
Bekhauf aazaad hai rehna mujhe

I've to live fearless, free..
I've to live fearless, free..
