By Tricitynews Reporter
Chandigarh 12th September:- The handsome and talented  Mayank Gandhi, who portrays the role of a mentally challenged character- Nandu in Zee TV’s poignant social drama Kaala Teeka is an impressive actor, but above all, he is a committed, thorough professional who believes that the show must go on, no matter what.  The actor who has returned to the show within barely a day or two of his marriage, postponing his honeymoon plans, has injured himself badly and even broken his finger while shooting an action sequence for the show. After taking medication, Mayank continued to shoot and did not take a day off.  The cast and crew of the show were thoroughly impressed by the actor’s dedication and professionalism.
About the accident, Mayank Gandhi said that it was a very intense scene where he had to break the window of the car. He doesn’t know when the madness of Nandu took over and he got carried away. He added that he realized he had crashed his fist into the window with full vengeance only when he saw his hand bleeding. The crew members immediately sprang to their feet and rushed in to help. He consulted the doctor, got his first-aid, had his medicines and decided to finish the sequence with the help of the production house. You have to prioritize work above your comfort if the situation calls for it. The scene was important and the set up was already done. Such accidents keep happening, because of which one shouldn’t stop working. All is well now.

Jagmeet Brar Hails ‘Kisaan Manifesto’ and Rebutts Captain's Remarks

By Tricitynews Reporter
Chandigarh 12th September:- Jagmeet Singh Brar has hailed the ‘Kisaan Manifesto’ released by AAP’s National Convenor Arvind Kejriwal in Baghapurana yesterday as a very well drafted comprehensive solution that will lay the foundation for the revival of Punjab’s rural economy and ailing farming sector.
Jagmeet Singh Brar said that the ‘Kisaan Manifesto’ had covered the pain areas of Punjab’s farming sector and provided a much needed ray of hope to distressed farmers who were on the verge on suicide he commented that this manifesto is the result of months of sincere hard work and efforts of the ‘Bolda Punjab’ team led by Kanwar Sandhu, and it reflects the real pain of farmers, it gives Punjab a new ray of hope and brings out real solutions to real problems.
Thanking the people of Punjab for their overwhelming response at yesterday’s event he said the crowd had surpassed the Maghi rally he had praised openly while still in Congress and added “Despite every Akali roadblock there was a sea of Punjabis at Baghapurana yesterday and a Tsunami of hope started when this manifesto was released. Urging farmers to stay strong in the face of rising debt he appealed that only a few months are left for winds of change to bring in good times in Punjab, ‘Tagde Reho, Umeed Na Chaddeyo’.
He thanked the manifesto team and AAP’s leadership for incorporating the key suggestions of Lok Hit Abhiyan in the manifesto and said “I thank the manifesto committee for including the solutions that Lok Hit Abhiyan had proposed during our door to door campaign over the last months and we will now take this manifesto to the people of Punjab and ask for their support in 2017.
Brushing aside Captain Amarinder’s remark that the manifesto was copied from Congress he said that Amarinder should get his memory checked  Congress has not released a manifesto yet, how can we copy something that doesn’t exist? On the other hand, he started a campaign for a Loan Settlement Ordinance in May from Chapperchiri – Bajwa and Amarinder started to copy those two weeks ago.
He also laughed off Captain’s tweet saying Kejriwal had no knowledge of agriculture and jibed “If Amarinder thinks he’s an agriculture expert because of his Cherry farming experience then his manifesto will be a joke book.
