ImageAbout one billion Muslims across the world are now enjoying the blessings and benefits of the holy month of Ramazan. Muslim community worldwide has rich traditions in their fasting filled with zeal and enthusiasm. One of the great traditions of Ramazan is Roza Kushai. It is an important and highly appreciated tradition. Roza Kushai means the very first fast that a child undertakes when old enough. It is a moment of big thrill for the child. For kids, the concept of no food can be hard to swallow; still they have so much excitement to have their first fast.

The top executives of many a corporate giant must feel like the fictional character Gulliver, waking up to find themselves under attack from modern-day Lilliputians, small start-up companies which overwhelm their established rivals with new technologies. The old powers of market incumbents - massive scale, control over distribution, brand power, millions of customer relationships - are no longer seen as the obstacles they once were to agile rivals with innovative business models.
It's now clear, Sean McFate says in his new book, "The Modern Mercenary", that when nation states spent nearly 400 years officially discouraging soldiers of fortune, it was the exception rather than the rule. There were mercenaries on the battlefields of Europe long before the Peace of Westphalia in 1648, when it was agreed that military force was the preserve of governments.
A wave of Silicon Valley-style disruption is hitting the food industry. Lab-grown meat, vegan cheese and "animal free" milk and eggs are headed for consumers, often with backing from the tech sector and its financial allies. These products could fill an important need while reducing environmental problems such as energy and land use for traditional food industries, according to backers.
It's 150 years since a hookah-smoking caterpillar sitting on a mushroom asked a curious young girl called Alice "Who are you?" and readers have been wondering the same thing ever since. Lewis Carroll's "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland", with characters including the Hatter, the White Rabbit and the "off with his head" Queen of Hearts, has delighted generations of children since its publication in 1865.
US actresses Kristen Stewart and Julianne Moore played roulette in Karl Lagerfeld's celebrity-studded runway casino Tuesday where the fashion legend used 3D printing for a futuristic version of the classic Chanel suit. In a typically elaborate staging - last year he recreated a Parisian bistro on the runway - Lagerfeld showed his first of two couture collections at Paris Fashion Week, with his all-fur production for Fendi on Wednesday seen as the highlight of the five-day fashion extravaganza.
Arnold Schwarzenegger may be older but that does not stop him from destroying his younger self, as the former governor of California returns to one of his most recognizable roles in "Terminator: Genisys." The film, out in theaters last Wednesday, opens a new chapter for the "Terminator" franchise, with a slew of new cast members joining Schwarzenegger, including "Game of Thrones" actress Emilia Clarke and "Divergent" star Jai Courtney.
