One in four women fed up with pregnancy and menstrual tension wish they were men

Fed up with the pain of pregnancy and pre-menstrual tension, one in four women wishes she was a man, a new UK study has found.

Fifteen per cent said that while battling mood swings they wanted to be male. A further nine per cent said they think men have it easier physically, reports The Daily Express.

And more than half, 55%, admitted they were not at their happiest stage of life, reports The Daily Express.

The poll of 2,048 women by Seven Seas Femibion health supplement revealed that 87% confessed they never felt at ease with the physical changes to their body during puberty.

Daily Express medical expert Dr Rosemary Leonard said: "Hormone levels are central to women's wellbeing. It's vital to have a balanced diet and nutritional support when your body needs it."

Deepika and Farhan develop differences?

Deepika Padukone and Farhan Akhtar, who got along like a house on fire while filming for their forthcoming film, 'Karthik Calling Karthik', seem to have different opinions over a matter now.

Farhan believes that since they are getting a number of offers from TV shows and soaps to come and promote their film, they should go ahead and do it. This will help publicize the film and will promote it well among audiences.

Deepika, however, is of the opinion that people have already received the promos well and they will come to watch the film because they'll be genuinely interested, not because it has been exposed too much.

They are now trying to agree with each other and contemplating making an appearance on some shows.

Aishwarya unable to conceive due to tuberculosis in stomach?

Abhisek Bachchan has a lot of reasons to be peeved. The actor is still reeling from a fake story printed about his wife Aishwarya unable to conceive till she has tuberculosis removed form her stomach. And the worst part is that the said newspaper has not given an apology despite knowing the facts now. "Aishwarya wrote a letter to the editor of the newspaper denying the report and asking for a "retraction and apology". They've printed her denial but not the rest of the letter and haven't had the decency to apologize! Apart from the fact that they have written so irresponsibly about a woman let alone my wife. My issue is when is all this kind of journalism going to stop? I have immense respect for the media. They are the opinion makers of a nation, our conscience. They must be responsible," he thunders.

Pissing Poshto, Pissed Off Bipasha!

Poshto's got Bips all pissed off! Hah, quite literally! Her five year old chihuahua hasn't been potty trained to perfection, and Bipasha Basu bore the brunt of it recently.

Her fancy duplex has been styled akin to a high end Manhattan apartment, and on her b'day, Bips was expressly thrilled since she received a spate of rose bouquets.

Soon, BB's apartment resembled a rose garden! But the big thorn in her glee surfaced when Bips spotted Poshto... peeing merrily into one of the gifted bouquets. Tch tch.

Presently, Poshto has been redirected to her mom's house where a caretaker takes care of… er, Poshto's peeing!

Guess, Poshto will now pee to the tee… :))))))))))))

“My Name Is Khan”, Mr. Thackeray!

That's exactly the message Shahrukh Khan's fans seems to have given to Bal Thackeray and his son Uddhav Thackeray. This after their Shiv Sena had called for a public boycott of the movie protesting Shahrukh's support for the Pakistani players in the IPL. Bal Thackeray and his son went to the extent of calling Shahrukh Khan a traitor asking him to settle down in Pakistan. They vandalised theatres and tore down the posters of the movie.

Buzz up!Shiv Sena which had taken the law into it's own hands got a taste of people's sentiments the day My Name Is Khan released. People thronged the movie theatres in Mumbai in tons and gave a thumbs up to the movie. The administration on it's part made elaborate security arrangements to counter Sena's bluff. Although Bal Thackeray and Uddhav Thackeray congratulated party workers on the agitation but they turned out to be 'paper tigers' in the end.

Shahid Kapoor: Sonakshi, Shazahn, Narmada were not auditioned

Ever since it was announced that Shahid Kapoor would be working in his dad Pankaj Kapoor's debut directorial venture, there have been speculations galore around the leading lady of the film. While not many established names have made the rounds so far, grapevine had insisted that Shahid's girl in the film would be a new face.

This is how names like Shatrughan Sinha's daughter Sonakshi Sinha, Sharon Prabhakar's daughter Shazahn Padamsee and Govinda's daughter Narmada were being discussed in the industry circles. However, the star of KAMINEY and JAB WE MET laughs away the insinuations and clarifies once and for and all that none of the aforementioned names were ever auditioned. Not just that, Shahid Kapoor has also declared that the leading lady has already been finalized and her identity would be revealed to media 'very soon'.

Story of My Name is Khan

'My Name is Khan, and I am not a terrorist'--one line sure to be mouthed by you as you step out of the theatre. And mind you, there are many other priceless quotes.

My Name is Khan is unlike any other Karan Johar-directed film, although it has glimpses of his past work. It does not have masala, no mindless song and dance, and no comic fillers. It has a very strong main message, and several others tucked in. KJo has sure come a long way from candyfloss.

My Name is Khan begins with Rizwan looking over the President Bush's itinerary. He wants to meet Mr President and tell him, "My Name is Khan, and I am not a terrorist". Rizwan starts his journey to Washinton, D.C., but becomes a terror suspect in the beginning itself.

Perfect Gift Ideas for Valentine's Day

Chocolates are a great noncommittal gift. Get her a box that emits class, not something from the drugstore, and get her a variety box if you don't know whether she's a caramel girl or more into truffles.

Relationship level: Not yet committed

Dog treats
When you've first met a girl, you're unlikely to know her likes, dislikes and diet restrictions. You always, however, know what kind of treats her dog (or any other pet she may have) will appreciate. Buying a gift that's healthy for her pet shows you're sensitive to her beloved buddy's well-being.

Relationship level: Not yet committed

While a bouquet of red roses may be a bit overzealous for a first date, other flowers may send your message perfectly. Do some research and choose carefully; gardenias denote secret love, orchids are always lovely, showing beauty and refinement, while yellow roses mean friendship. Just be sure to order your flowers early because Valentine’s Day can be a busy time for this industry.

Relationship level: Works for all levels

Heart-shaped pendant
Pendants were practically designed for giving to new girlfriends: They’re sweet (but not too serious), pretty (but not distractingly eye-catching) and tailor-made to make her swoon on a daily basis.

Relationship level: Long-term relationship

Luxury lingerie
This gift sets a precedent for fun. It is a gift the two of you can share and will bring out the intimacy that your new union entails. On the whole, it is romantic and adventurous without being intimidating.

Bal Thackeray Attacked Rahul Gandhi for calling Mumbai 'Bombay'

In a fresh salvo against Rahul Gandhi, Shiv Sena today flayed the 'Congress yuvraj' for calling Mumbai as Bombay during his recent visit to the city.

"During his speech here, Rahul Gandhi repeatedly called Mumbai as Bombay. Those who want to break Mumbai away from Maharashtra call Mumbai as Bombay," Sena Chief Bal Thackeray said in an editorial in party mouthpiece 'Saamana.'

Ridiculing Minister of State for Home Ramesh Bagwe, who was seen carrying Gandhi's shoes, apparently for safe-keeping, during the Congress leader's visit here, Thackeray said, "The minister should be ashamed to stoop so low."

"Rahul Gandhi is not a Mahatma Gandhi so that his shoes should be held close to the heart," the editorial said.

'Avatar' dethroned at box office by 'Dear John'

The new romantic drama "Dear John" unexpectedly ended the seven-week reign of "Avatar" at the weekend box office in North America on Sunday, pulling in large numbers of young female moviegoers.
