MUMBAI: Aamir Khan's wife Kiran Rao reveals the one thing she dislikes about her
husband. And shockingly, it's his bathing habits, reports NDTV.com.

"The one thing that I don't like about him is the fact that he doesn't take a
bath. And trust me when I say this, his bathing habits are not very regular,"
Kiran told 'Live India' in an interview.

Following which, Aamir good-naturedly defended himself saying, "I do take a bath
when I go out for work. And considering most of the time I step out for work, I
take a bath most of the time. It is only when I am not stepping out or when I am
on a holiday that I don't take a bath."

2. Now a 'sexual' revolution to attract tourists


RUSSIA: A top porn movie producer in Russia - dubbed the "porn king" - has filed
a complaint in a court demanding the return of more than 60,000 adult films made
by his studio that are currently in the court's possession.

The St. Petersburg court seized the adult movies made by Sergei Pryanishnikov
during a search of his studio in 2006. The producer sent a request to return the
movies in 2009. But, the movie discs were not returned by the court.

"Our position is clear: as they (the movies) are no longer material evidence,
they should be returned to us," Pryanishnikov's lawyer Alexei Nachinkin said.

Pryanishnikov, 53, has been producing adult films since 1997. He was a candidate
for the St. Petersburg governor in 2003, and promised to stage a "sexual
revolution" to attract tourists.

3. British parents use websites to abuse teachers

LONDON: Parents in Britain are increasingly using social networking sites such
as Facebook to bully and undermine teachers, new social research shows.

With an increasing number of teachers reporting online abuse, the National
Association of Headteachers (NAHT) says that members should be prepared to take
action if parents have made potentially libellous comments on websites,
according to the 'Daily Mail'.

The NAHT says it receives hundreds of calls every week from teachers who are
being "cyberbullied" - and the majority of complaints are about parents using
the web to criticise teachers or heads.

In 2009, research by the Association of Teachers and Lecturers (ATL) and the
Teacher Support Network suggested 15 percent of teachers had experienced
cyberbullying, and it is believed this figure is growing.

"Parents have a right to express their views and complaints should be heard.
Schools can only benefit from constructive feedback," NAHT general secretary
Russell Hobby said.

"Too often, though, social networking sites are a medium for the unreasonable
and the unprincipled, and have a momentum out of all proportion to reality."
The NAHT has now updated its guidance for teachers who think they are being
bullied by pupils or parents.

4. 85-year-old gets divorce... after 30 years


NEW DELHI: After a three-decade-long legal battle, a man, who is now 85, finally
got divorce with the Delhi High Court on Thursday rejecting his wife's appeal
challenging a lower court order, reported local media.

The court voiced anguish over the slow process of justice that prevented the
couple from starting their lives afresh.

Upholding the decision of the trial court, which granted the divorce to 85-
year-old JM Kohli in 1994, Justice Kailash Gambhir said it should be the
endeavour of the courts to expeditiously decide these matters so that people
involved can start their lives anew.

Kohli got married to Vimla in 1953 but was forced to leave the house in 1979. He
filed a divorce petition in 1982 and the court granted the divorce in 1994.
