Words known by the company they keep: Javed Akhtar

Mumbai: Veteran writer-lyricist Javed Akhtar feels words are known by the company they keep and people should think twice before speaking.

“Just like friends, words are known by the company they keep. By looking at the words, you can tell if the sentence is negative or positive. Thus, we must choose are words carefully because every word has a reaction,” Akhtar said on Shah Rukh Khan’s show “TED Talks India Nayi Soch”.

The episode featuring Akhtar will be aired on Star Plus.

Baba Ramdev gifts cow to ‘Super Dancer’ contestant

Yoga guru Baba Ramdev gifted a cow to a contestant named Bishal Sharma on dance reality show “Super Dancer Chapter 2” after he heard about his struggles in life.

“I truly thank this show and the platform to lend that support to this little child. In my own way, I chose to gift Bishal a cow and a cart so that he keeps the motivation (level) up and performs the way he does.

“I could also relate to him as I myself have a ‘Gaushala’ in Assam. I will make sure Bishal gets food to feed the cow,” he added.

“Super Dancer Chapter 2” is aired on Sony Entertainment Television.
