Boseman tragically passed away at home on August 28, after a four-year battle with colon cancer.

The AP reports that Boseman was buried on September 3 at Welfare Baptist Church Cemetery in Belton, South Carolina, about 11 miles from his hometown of Anderson.

A day later, Anderson held a public memorial for the actor.

The AP, which obtained Boseman’s death certificate, also reported that the immediate cause was listed as multiple organ failure, with the underlying cause of colon cancer.

Earlier this month, Black Panther producer Nate Moore shared the moving final message he received from Boseman.

The pair had been working together during Boseman’s final days to send a young fan gifts through the Make A Wish Foundation, the charitable organisation that raises funds for critically ill children.

“We worked together to get a young boy a voice note from [Boseman’s Black Panther character] T’Challa, as well as a package of toys – no easy feat when we weren’t allowed to leave our homes or go to the office,” said Moore.

“But Chad figured out how to make it work because he cared so intently, and in hindsight, so personally.”

Moore then shared the final message he received from Boseman, which read: “It broke me, man. But we need to do that for them. People deserve abundant life, special moments. They’ve been through hell battling disease.

“If we were able to ease their suffering and bring joy for a moment… then we made a difference in his life.”

By

The legendary Cricket icon Sunil Gavaskar on Friday found himself in the midst of a controversy for making distasteful comments on Virat Kohli and his wife Anushka Sharma in his commentary during an IPL match.

Following the forgettable performance of Virat, Sunil Gavaskar, who was in the commentary box came up saying, “Ab joh Lockdown tha to sirf Anushka ki bowling ki practice ki unhone, wo video dekhi hai, usse to kuch nahi hona hai (During the recent lockdown he only practised to Anushka’s bowling, I saw a video. But that is not going to be enough).”

Gavaskar was referring to a viral video clip of Anushka and Virat taking turns and playing Cricket at home. Well, the legends’ remark, however, did not go down well with the netizens fans, with some urging the BCCI to remove him from the commentary panel.

Now, Anushka Sharma herself has responded to Gavaskar’s comments. “Mr. Gavaskar your message is distasteful is a fact but I would love for you to explain why you thought of making such a sweeping statement on a wife accusing her for her husband’s game? I am sure over the years you have respected the private lives of every cricketer while commentating on the game. Don’t you think you should have equal amount of respect for me and us?I am sure you can have many other words and sentences in your mind to use to comment on my husband’s performance from last night or are your words only relevant if you use my name in the process?”

“Its 2020 and things still don’t change for me. When will I stop getting dragged into cricket and stop being used to pass sweeping statements? Respected Mr Gavaskar, you are a legend whose name stands tall in this gentleman’s game. Just wanted to tell you what I felt when I heard you say this” Anushka Sharma posted on Instagram stories.

It may be remembered that it is not the first time Anushka was dragged into cricketing affairs.

Breaking! Deepika Padukone blasts Modi government over agriculture reforms

Published

Now that we have your attention, let us tell you that Deepika Padukone hasn’t said a word against the Centre’s agriculture reforms. We would like to inform you that the grilling of Bollywood members in the drugs probe is not the only thing happening in India right now. The Parliament, in recent days, has gone ahead with a slew of reforms. Farm Bills and Labour reforms are the most talked-about of them.

To quote columnist Arihant Pawariya, “The session was historic in many ways. Lok Sabha worked for 145% of the scheduled time. The same figure for Rajya Sabha stood at 99%. In all, 27 bills were passed.” While journalists are crying on social media that everyone is only obsessed with the drugs case, our Parliament worked overtime.

Agriculture reforms spawned by the Narendra Modi government have come in for severe flak from critics. Ashok Gulati, the chair professor for agriculture at ICRIER, however, has described the reforms as agriculture’s 1991 moment. “The latest reforms provide a legal framework and give the processors, exporters and organized retailers an opportunity to go big. They will help cut down the intermediation costs, which are pretty high now. The farmer will have a better choice. It’s not going to happen tomorrow, though. This is an opportunity to turn the agri economy into a demand-driven system,” Gulati recently told NDTV.

“Big players will buy in big quantities. Organized retail, which is less than 10% now, hadn’t been given full freedom. Massive investments have to come in now,” he added. Has the government done these reforms because its only concern is witch-hunting Bollywood actors? You decide.

Critics have talked as if farmers don’t need reforms in the first place. Did farmers tell them this? Amitabh Kant of NITI Ayog recently wrote, “We process less than 10% of our food production and lose approximately Rs 90,000 Cr annually due to wastage of produce. This is because of a fragmented cold chain.” This is just one of the demerits of the existing system, which the reforms seek to undo. Deepika Padukone may be the media’s concern, not the government’s.

What is the government doing other than harassing Deepika Padukone and other so-called dissenters? Here is an example: Rs 1 lakh crore has been allocated to the Agriculture Infrastructure Fund (AIF) towards facilitating the development of farmgate infrastructure.

But why then are farmers protesting? It begs this question: How many are protesting and in which parts of the country? Outside Haryana and Punjab, says senior journalist Rajdeep Sardesai, Friday’s Bharat Bandh received a very tepid response.

Come to think of it. Why is it the case?
