Is Astrology really fraud? Here's what you need to know
The creator of the video claimed how millions of Indians are being 'fooled' into believing astrology and it is nothing but just a sham.

CLOSE-IN: Legends are blessed, but one needs the 'Hand of God' too
The phrase "Hand of God" made famous by Diego Maradona, in what is termed in a very loose way, somehow always seems to find itself blessing the legends of the sport. Messi, the champion footballer, was the one to receive it when most required at this World Cup. Argentina was one of the favourite sides not only because of the way they play the game of football but also because one wished Messi to win it for his immense contribution to the sport.
