What is CAMEO in a movie?

What is CAMEO in a movie?

Bollywood  superstar Shahrukh Khan has denied that he is playing a cameo in Gauri Shinde's latest movie Dear Zindagi. He's playing the role of a life coach to a young lady (played by Alia Bhatt) going through  emotionally disturbing relationship s in her life.

A cameo is a small role in a movie or  play performed by a well-known actor. 

The original meaning of cameo was to create a small gem by cutting away the background so that a figure stands out in relief.

What is Black Friday?

Black Friday is the day following Thanksgiving Day in the United States (the fourth Thursday of November). Since 1932, it has been regarded as the beginning of the Christmas shopping season in the U.S., and most major retailers open very early (and more recently during overnight hours) and offer promotional sales.

Buzzword: Demonetization

This week the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi caught every one by surprise by suddenly announcing that high value currency notes of Rs. 500 and 1000 would be dead in a span of two hours by the stroke of midnight. It is an act of demonetization.

Demonetization is the act of stripping a currency unit of its status as legal tender i.e. depriving a coin or currency note of its status as money.

Demonetizantion is necessary whenever there is a change of national currency. In this case, the government wanted to curb the menace of stashed black money, fight the onslaught of  fake currency notes and throttle terror financing.

Acronym: What is BRICS?

Leaders at BRICS 2016 in Goa
BRICS is the acronym for an association of five major emerging national economies: Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. Originally the first four were grouped as "BRIC" (or "the BRICs"), before the induction of South Africa in 2010. The BRICS members are all leading developing or newly industrialized countries, but they are distinguished by their large, sometimes fast-growing economies and significant influence on regional affairs; all five are G-20 members.
