The mastermind behind the 9/11 terrorist attacks didn’t want to just languish his days away while behind bars – he decided to put his engineering skills to good.

Were you expecting friends and family to travel to B.C. this year?

We've heard about perfumes being named after stars, but biscuits?

Teluju superstar Ramcharan Tega’s biscuits are available in parts of the world with a sizeable South Indian population.

Run to watch this marvel.

The near-flawless homage to the flying spirit of India’s greatest runner – starring Bollywood film actor Farhan Akhtar — makes other recent high-profile acclaimed films look hopelessly inadequate.
