I am married for the past 10 years and have a 5 year-old-daughter. Ours was a love marriage. My husband was very loving but my in-laws seemed jealous of the situation. They wanted me to work, so I finished my education and I am a school teacher now. I have discovered that my husband has had many affairs behind my back and is also into drugs. He beats me and threw me out of the house and I went to live with my parents. They have asked me to leave my daughter at my in-laws place.

Pirates of ...
The “pirate” series is an albatross around director Gore Verbinski’s neck. How to get rid of it is his dilemma. He has a sudden hallucinatory vision of the franchise and Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End is born. Cobbling together a bizarre army of buccaneers, he sets sail on an excursion which gradually turns into an unending voyage amidst turbulent waters.

Mars vs Venus: The debate’s on
Men are from Mars and women are from Venus, this phrase stands true not only for the grown ups. The likes and dislikes of both the genders vary. Blame it on the hormones, but it’s obvious for girls to have a fetish for baby pinks’ while indigos’ and pastel blues’ are presumed to be boyish shades.
Films & Fashion
Bonded in friendship
Keira Knightley and Sienna Miller have become the best of friends after working together in a new film. The British beauties have bonded so well, that they have been spending a lot of time off-set with each other too.
The pair, who is starring together in The Edge Of Love, a film about Dylan Thomas, hit the town last week in matching black boots, tights and sporting similar short
dresses. Accompanying them was Keira’s boyfriend Rupert Friend, and their other co-star Matthew Rhys. Sources said that the duo has become inseparable since they started filming together, and even want to buy houses close to each other.
Ready to Rock ...
While Parikrama gets all set to rock UK, local bands feel the city still hasn’t taken to rock completely.
Radhika Singh takes a look at the rock scenario in town
Rock fans across the country have much reason to rejoice. Indian rock band Parikrama is all set to perform at the famed Download Music festival at Donnington Park in England. It will be performing alongside other popular bands like Iron Maiden, Led Zeppelin, Linking Park and Dream Theatre. This being the first major international tour of the band, it sort of makes one wonder; with Parikrama showing the way, has rock music in India come of age?

They never got their 15 minutes of fame for passing on the genes that resulted in high-scoring report cards. For, the mark sheets of yore never made headlines the way they do today.
